Democrats Have Always Enjoyed Owning Blacks

I recently wrote a piece where I stated that I could not understand why the black population votes for Democrats when that party does nothing but keep them down. I mentioned that the Republican Party got rid of slavery (and lost hundreds of thousands doing so) and that I could not understand why blacks would stick with the Democrats. I had someone write to me and basically say, wow, the Republicans got rid of slavery 150 years ago. What about now? Why is it so many Jews vote Democrat. Basically, the idea was that the Republican Party was a bunch of white elitists.

I read an article today that, in honor of President’s Day, discussed the three worst Presidents of all time. Her is an outline of history under Lyndon Johnson:

Not remembered much in current history textbooks or the media of today, was that in the 1920s Republicans proposed anti-lynching legislation, reflecting back to Civil War times when Democrats, including founders of the KKK, had been involved in this horrific act. The legislation passed the House , an opposition speech was given by a Democrat Congressman from Texas named Lyndon B. Johnson, but was killed by the Democrat-controlled Senate. Finally in 1939 it passed the Senate.

LBJ and the Southern wing of the Democratic Party persisted in supporting anti-black positions. Consider, as LBJ’s term neared:

– In 1956, Democrats expressed their opposition to the desegregation decision of Brown v. Board of Education in the “Southern Manifesto.” One hundred members of Congress, all Democrats, signed the manifesto.

– In 1957, REPUBLICAN President Eisenhower authored a Civil Rights Bill, hoping to repair the damage done to blacks and their civil rights by Democrats for nearly a century. Passage of the bill was blocked by Senate Democrats.

– In 1959, Eisenhower authored a Voting Rights Bill, again, in an effort to undo the disenfranchisement of blacks by Democrats through poll taxes, literacy tests, and threats of violence by the KKK. And once again, passage of the bill is blocked by Senate Democrats.

But then, following the JFK assasination[sic]:

– In 1964, Congress passed the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This is the law originally authored by Eisenhower in 1957. Democrats, including Senator Robert Byrd (a former KKK member), filibustered the bill. Once the filibuster was overcome, a larger percentage of Republicans voted for passage than did Democrats.

– In 1965, Congress passed, and President Lyndon Johnson signed into law, the Voting Rights Act of 1964. This is the law originally authored by Eisenhower in 1959. A filibuster was prevented, and passage of this bill also enjoyed support from a greater percentage of Republicans than Democrats. Johnson, of course, is now president and gets “credit” for this legislation — authored by Republicans, designed by Republicans to undo a century of damage done by Democrats, and voted for by a greater percentage of Republicans than Democrats.

– This was followed by the Great Socety[sic] programs designed to eliminate poverty and racism.

At this point, the media and academic elite began using a powerful combination of information control and revisionist history to engineer a massive electoral shift. Falling for the blandishments of the Democrats and their media allies, blacks, once exclusively Republican, began voting Democrat in numbers greater than 90 percent,

The actual consequences of Johnson’s Great Society were disastrous for blacks, discouraging initiative, encouraging a sense of entitlement and victimhood, and creating a permanent dependency class. Until 1965, 82% of black households had both a mother and a father in the home — a statistic on par with or even slightly higher than white families. After 1965 (the year the Democrats and President Johnson decided it was time to stop oppressing blacks and start “helping” them), the presence of black fathers in the home began a precipitous decline; today, the American black out-of-wedlock birthrate is at 69%.

Notice that it was the Republican Party fighting for civil rights throughout history while Democrats fought against them every step of the way. Blacks were once strong supporters of the Republican Party but were misled into the Democratic Party where they have been in despair ever since. Sure, life was not great for blacks in the late 1800s though the mid 1900s but it was getting better and had the Democrats not blocked advancement, the blacks might have reached parity a long time ago living lives today that are not dependent upon the benevolence of government.

Rev. Wayne Perryman, a black man, believed in the Democratic Party until he researched it and the way it treated blacks throughout history. He wrote a book entitled Unfounded Loyalty and he claims that after reading the book the reader will understand:

— For 150 years blacks were victims of terrorist attacks by the Democrats and their Klan supporters, including lynchings, beatings, rapes, and mutilations.

— On the issue of slavery, the Democrats literally gave their lives to expand it; the Republicans gave their lives to ban it.

— Many believed the Democrats had a change of heart and fell in love with blacks. To the contrary, history reveals the Democrats didn’t fall in love with black folks, they fell in love with the black vote knowing this would be their ticket into the White House.

Perryman supported Democrats in the past but in a letter to Terry McAuliffe [2004] he wrote:

I’m not saying that all people who choose to be Democrats are mindless. I’m saying that people who choose a party because it’s the “black thing to do”, instead of actually examining the issues are making a mindless choice. We have brains for a reason.

I believe the Republican party offers more for blacks, in particular poor blacks, many of whom would benefit from the Republican’s
philosophy of personal responsibility. The Democrats have convinced most of them that racism is responsible for their plight. In
some instances that may be true, but for the most part it involves poor choices that some people make – dropping out of school, teen pregnancy, etc.

The democrats may toss them a fish or two, but the Republicans will show them how to fish. Black Conservative

I have said more than once that blacks are taken for granted by the Democrats and that they would be better off if they changed parties and espoused the things the Republican Party does. They would not be beholden to government and they would be more self reliant. It is unfortunate that they blindly follow Democrats and have done so to their own detriment.

One day when schools and the Democrats stop embracing revisionist history the blacks in this country will see what party has embraced them and has fought for their civil rights. Perhaps it will take an action by the Democrats that is so egregious the black community can no longer give blind support to their task masters and will embrace the freedom of the Republican Party. Then you will see more qualified candidates running for office and holding positions of prominence.

Perhaps that terrible act is only months away. If the Democrats steal victory from Obama and give the nomination to Hillary Clinton there will be a mass exodus of blacks from the party. We on the right will be glad to welcome you home.

Think the Democrats are not worried about this? Why do you think they want the nomination settled before the convention? They were not worried about ticking anyone off when the Super Delegates decided on Mondale because he was white and the blacks would not be feel betrayed by the decision. The party leaders are not worried about ticking off the black vote. They are worried about ticking it off enough that they lose it.

To Democrats, that would be the only injustice in the process.

    Well said, I wrote something similar one night after watching some conference of the Black Republican Party on CSPAN…

    It should be obvious to anyone with a half a brain that the Dim(S) party is freind to the Dim(S) party and no one else. The black community are only seen as ignorant serf’s to be spoon fed by a huge government…

    I too am confused why the majority of African American as well as Hispanics embrace the Democratic party. It seems that it has always been the norm and few really look into the history. You are so right in the history of the Democratic party. It has been a party against blacks and hispanics. What many people may not know is that the reverand Martin Luther King was a registered Republican, why would a man of his character be a republican. The only answer is that he knew what each party stood for..

  5. EDT says:

    Thank you for this post! I am currently reading Rev. Perryman’s “Unfounded Loyalty” and it is an eye-opening look into the pervasive deceit the Democrats have unleashed on African-Americans. I’m just glad I never switched parties and have always voted Republican.

  6. CDOC says:

    This doesn’t explain why many of the racist congressmen (ie Strom Thurmond) switched to the Republican Party during the mid 1900s.  There had been a flip-flop, or structural adjustments within both parties, since then.  The aforementioned phenomenon discredits this article entirely.  To say that the democrats have carried the black vote since 1964 because of false allegiances is unjustifiably shallow, and undermines the intelligence of the black community.  Historical relevance does not support it.

  7. Big Dog says:

    CDOC,
    Perhaps you should go to the website of the National Black Republican Association and read up a bit.  You will see the history of racism in the Democratic party and how they opposed civil rights.

    Strom Thurman changed after many years.  What you should wonder is why they still tolerate Robert Byrd, the KKK member over on the left.

    I am so glad that I have found his site. I am a black man who has understood the injustices of the Democratic Party at an early age. I have always believed in my gut that the Democrates have out witted those who choose to vote for them time and time again. They prove over and over that those “blacks” who choose to vote for them are not tired of slavery.
    Every since President Lincoln made freedom possible by signing the Emancipation Proclamation. The fight for Republicans has been to help them realize their freedom. But just like a good task-master the Democrates will find a way to enslave, those blacks that vote for them, by controlling their mind with more and more institutionalized promises.
    I have found it to be true. That as long as blacks continue extending their hands they will always be able to touch the master’s wallet. But, they fail to believe that master is in control of his wallet. The hand on master’s butt just tells master that his “nigger” is still following.
    Well, I am not master’s “nigger.” My mind ascends to the knowledge that says, “I can be what I educate myself to be, by the grace of God.”

    Again, thank you for this forum. What a blessing!
