Why is the party of racism, lecturing us about racism?

Over the past few months, Democrats have intensely lectured Americans, that we are irredeemably racist, and that the only recourse for our country to attain righteousness, is to accept willingly, the fundamental transformation of America from a beacon of freedom, prosperity, and fairness, to an authoritarian hellhole, resembling Democrats’ big cities and other districts, which are crumbling before our eyes. Like so many of the Left’s narratives, the Democrats’ indictment of America, are for crimes committed by Democrats themselves - not crimes committed by Americans in general.

Democrats love to condemn America for its history of racism, the KKK, and white supremacy. In fact, Democrat politicians and operatives, now accuse America of systemic racism, and of being irredeemably racist. But what group does historical records implicate the most for the above crimes? Surprise! Democrats! As usual, Democrats accuse America of its past crimes, as it holds itself up, as the paragon of virtue.

Let's first take a look at the Ku Klux Klan. The following, from Wikipedia, is a partial list of notable historical figures in U.S. national politics, who were members of the Ku Klux Klan:

'1            Politicians who were active in the Klan at some time

1.1          Robert Byrd

1.2          Hugo Black

1.3          Theodore G. Bilbo

1.4          John Brown Gordon

1.5          Joseph E. Brown

1.6          Elmer David Davies

1.7          Edward L. Jackson

1.8          Clarence Morley

1.9          Bibb Graves

1.10        Clifford Walker

1.11        George Gordon

1.14        John W. Morton

1.15        William L. Saunders

1.16        John Clinton Porter

1.17        Benjamin F. Stapleton

All but two of the officials above were Democrats.

The following are excerpts from the Wikipedia article, whose link is provided above:

'Robert Byrd

Main article: Robert Byrd § Race

Senator Robert Byrd was a Kleagle, a Klan recruiter, in his 20s and 30s.

Robert C. Byrd, was a recruiter for the Klan while in his 20s and 30s, rising to the title of Kleagle and Exalted Cyclops of his local chapter. After leaving the group, Byrd spoke in favor of the Klan during his early political career. Though he later said he officially left the organization in 1943, Byrd wrote a letter in 1946 to the group's Imperial Wizard stating "The Klan is needed today as never before, and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia." Byrd attempted to explain or defend his former membership in the Klan in his 1958 U.S. Senate campaign when he was 41 years old. Byrd, a Democrat, eventually became his party leader in the Senate. Byrd later said joining the Klan was his "greatest mistake," and after his death, the NAACP released a statement praising Byrd, acknowledging his former affiliation with the Klan and saying that he "became a champion for civil rights and liberties" and "came to consistently support the NAACP civil rights agenda". In a 2001 interview, Byrd used the term "white niggers" twice during a national television broadcast. The full quote ran as follows: "My old mom told me, 'Robert, you can't go to heaven if you hate anybody.' We practice that. There are white niggers. I've seen a lot of white niggers in my time. I'm going to use that word. We just need to work together to make our country a better country, and I'd just as soon quit talking about it so much." Byrd later apologized for the phrase and admitted that it "has no place in today's society," and did not clarify the intended meaning of the term in his context.

Hugo Black

Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black

In 1921, Hugo Black successfully defended E. R. Stephenson in his trial for the murder of a Catholic priest, Fr. James E. Coyle. E.R. Stephenson's daughter had converted to Catholicism and married a man of Puerto Rican descent, and Coyle had conducted the wedding. Hugo Black got Stephenson acquitted in part by arguing to the jury that Puerto Ricans should be considered black under the South's one drop rule. Black, a Democrat, joined the Ku Klux Klan shortly afterwards, in order to gain votes from the anti-Catholic element in Alabama. He built his winning Senate campaign around multiple appearances at KKK meetings across Alabama. Late in life Black told an interviewer:'

The above and other historical data, show that Democrats were disproportionately members of the KKK, and acted accordingly.

Next, let's examine White Supremacy. The following is an excerpt from a historical account, surrounding the events leading up to the 1898 North Carolina elections. It shows the introduction and implementation of the term white supremacy, by the Democrat party.

'As the election of 1898 go closer, the Democrats scrambled to come up with a new strategy to regain power. Furnifold Simmons, who had successfully run the 1892 campaign for the party, was appointed party chairman and charged with managing the campaign. Simmons was a successful organizer with a keen knowledge of state politics. He organized a speakers bureau, sending talented orators who were sure to stay on message to all parts of the state, and he helped to establish local political organizations in each county. But perhaps Simmons's most important contribution to the campaign would be the decision to focus nearly all of the party's campaign efforts on a single issue: white supremacy.

The "white supremacy campaign" was exactly that. The Democrats repeatedly stated that only white men were fit to hold political office. They often accused the fusionists, especially the Republicans, of supporting "negro domination" in the state. Indeed, there were a large number of African American officeholders, some of whom had been elected and many more who were appointed to office. The Democrats referred to themselves as the "white man's party" and appealed to white North Carolinians to restore them to power.

One of the most significant events of the campaign was the appearance of an editorial in the Wilmington Daily Record on August 18, 1898. The Daily Record was an African American newspaper published by Alex Manly. The editorial was a response to a speech by a Georgia woman who had called for the widespread lynching of African American men in order to protect white women. The Daily Record suggested that consensual relationships between African American men and white women were common and that often the man was accused of rape only after the relationship was discovered. Once the Democratic papers got hold of the editorial there was an uproar. Under headings such as "Vile and Villainous" and "A Horrid Slander," the editorial was reprinted throughout the state. Some Democratic papers continued to run it in almost every single issue up to election day.




Toward the end of the campaign, perhaps worried that speeches and editorials would not be enough to ensure victory, the Democrats increasingly resorted to the threat of violence. At several rallies in southeastern North Carolina, large groups of men dressed in red shirts and openly brandishing weapons rode through predominantly African American neighborhoods in an effort to scare potential Republican voters away from the polls. The "Red Shirts" were a campaign strategy borrowed from South Carolina Senator Ben Tillman, who appeared at several rallies on behalf of the North Carolina Democrats.'

As you can see, White Supremacy ideology was originated by, and exclusively practiced by Democrats.

So from above, the political party (the Democrat party) most guilty of racism, association with the KKK, and white supremacy, is the one wagging its finger at you, telling you you must atone for your fathers’ sins, by adopting socialism - a political ideology which has failed miserably, everywhere it has been tried. If what the Democrats are doing seem like a scam: that is because that is what it is.
