Democratic Party is the party of the four S’s: slavery, secession, segregation and now socialism!
While claiming to care about diversity, Democrats readily demean black Republicans who do not toe the Democratic Party’s liberal agenda line, denigrating them as “sellouts”, “Uncle Toms”, “House Negroes”, “House N-word”, and worse.
The time is now for Democrats, starting with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, to stop using race baiting as a political weapon and apologize to blacks for their history of racism so that our nation can finally heal our racial wounds.
Confident that liberal historians have successfully re-written civil rights history, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid brazenly compared Republican health care reform opponents to supporters of slavery, ignoring the fact that the Democratic Party fought to expand slavery while the Republican Party fought to end it. Not satisfied with just playing the race card on the senate floor, the Nevada Democrat also accused Republicans of opposing women’s suffrage, never mind that the Republican Party also championed women’s rights.
Democrats refused to apologize for their racism.
Democrats sang a different tune when inner-city minister Rev. Wayne Perryman sued the Democratic Party for that party’s 150-year history of racism, a case that went all the way to the United States Supreme Court. Democrats came into court and, under oath, admitted their racist past that Sen. Reid is now trying to foist on the shoulders of Republicans. In court, Democrats refused to apologize for their racism and, using an army of lawyers, relied on the legal technicality of “standing” to avoid a court order against them, knowing they can take the black vote for granted.
Democrats have been running black communities for the past 40 years, and the failed socialist policies of the Democrats have turned those communities into economic and social wastelands. Incredibly, Democrats blame Republicans for the deplorable conditions created by Democrats. Since the so-called War on Poverty of the 1960’s, over nine trillion dollars have been spent on poverty-related programs, with no movement in the poverty needle.
The fact that Republicans today are not racist is explained clearly in the article”The Myth of the Racist Republicans” by Gerard Alexander that is posted on the Claremont Institute’s website.
Democrats generate false charges of racism against the Republican Party in order to keep blacks from voting for Republicans by making unfair accusations against Republican leaders such as Trent Lott who Democrats denounced for his remarks about Senator Strom Thurmond. However, there was silence when Democrat Senator Christopher Dodd praised Senator Byrd, a former official in the Ku Klux Klan, as someone who would have been “a great senator for any moment.” Senator Thurmond was never in the Ku Klux Klan. After Thurmond had a change of heart and joined the party of freedom and equality for blacks – the Republican Party – Thurmond defended blacks against lynching and the discriminatory poll taxes imposed on blacks by Democrats.
It’s the right thing to do, but we won’t hold our breath.
