Democrats Own Racism In America
After watching Hillary’s America yesterday, I decided to look into some of the stuff that was featured.
The Democrats have successfully labeled the Republican Party as ‘racist’ ‘bigoted’ and ‘hateful.’ Folks, I’ve always made the point that if you want to know what a liberal and / or Democrat really is, just listen to what they accuse others of being.
Here are a few tid-bits I discovered.

Another in a series of racist posters attacking Radical Republican exponents of black suffrage, issued during the 1866 Pennsylvania gubernatorial race. (See “The Constitutional Amendment,” no. 1866-5.) The poster specifically characterizes Democratic candidate Hiester Clymer’s platform as “for the White Man,” represented here by the idealized head of a young man. (Clymer ran on a white-supremacy platform.) In contrast a stereotyped black head represents Clymer’s opponent James White Geary’s platform, “for the Negro.” Below the portraits are the words, “Read the platforms. Congress says, The Negro must be allowed to vote, or the states be punished.” Above is an explanation: “Every Radical in Congress Voted for Negro Suffrage. Every Radical in the Pennsylvania Senate Voted for Negro Suffrage. Stevens [Pennsylvania Representative Thaddeus Stevens], Forney [John W. Forney, editor of the ” Philadelphia Press”:], and Cameron [Pennsylvania Republican boss Simon Cameron] are for Negro Suffrage; they are all Candidates for the United States Senate. No Radical Newspaper Opposes Negro Suffrage. “Geary” said in a Speech at Harrisburg, 11th of August, 1866–“There Can Be No Possible Objection to Negro Suffrage.”

JIM CROW LAWS
Jim Crow laws were state and local laws enforcing racial segregation in the Southern United States.
Jim Crow laws — sometimes, as in Florida, part of state constitutions — mandated the segregation of public schools, public places, and public transportation, and the segregation of restrooms, restaurants, and drinking fountains for whites and blacks. The U.S. military was also segregated, as were federal workplaces, initiated in 1913 under President Woodrow Wilson. By requiring candidates to submit photos, his administration practiced racial discrimination in hiring.
Woodrow Wilson was a … gasp … Democrat!
Continuing on …
Jim Crow laws for example were part of state constitutions as in say … the Florida State Constitution of 1885 …
The Florida State Constitution of 1885 …
… also mandated a poll tax as a requirement for voting (Article VI, Section 8).This was a compromise between smaller “black belt” counties who wanted more offices elected and those from larger and more prosperous counties.[clarification needed] The poll tax disenfranchised African-Americans. Racial segregation in schools was mandatory (Article XII, Section 12). The constitution also prohibited marriage between “a white person and a person of negro descent” (Article XVI, Section 24).
The constitution ratified at the convention passed with a vote of 31,804 to 21,243. It was “the model” of Florida’s government until 1968 and “represented the regression to racial discrimination which was occurring throughout the South in the post-Reconstruction period.”
Lets just take a peek at who was governor of Florida at that time and what political party he belonged to … We’ll look at a few of them and their term in office.
George Franklin Drew Jan. 2, 1877 to January 4, 1881 … DEMOCRAT
William D. BloxhamJanuary 4, 1881 to January 7, 1885 … DEMOCRAT
Edward A. PerryJanuary 7, 1885 to January 8, 1889 … DEMOCRAT
Folks, every Florida governor from 1877 to 1967 was DEMOCRAT. In 1967 Claude R. Kirk, Jr.
a Republican was elected. His term was from January 3, 1967 to January 5, 1971. (source)
Just a simple cursory bit of research, like I just did reveals the undisputed fact that it is the Democrats who are the fathers of racism here in America and fought relentlessly to keep black people enslaved and in subjection.
I don’t like making posts too long so I won’t get off into how the KKK was the Democrat militia who enforced the Democrat “platform” of keeping the negro in line. But I will leave you with this one little fact that I bet most folks don’t know.
The Wizard of Oz. The delightful movie we’ve all seen probably multiple times. The book was written by L. Frank Baum, DEMOCRAT. Well Mr. Baum in 1890 wrote an editorial about Native Americans. This is what he wrote:
“The Whites, by law of conquest, by justice of civilization, are masters of the American continent, and the best safety of the frontier settlements will be secured by the total annihilation of the few remaining Indians.”
I could go on and on about the Democrats keeping firearms from blacks, and how Planned Parenthood’s original goal was to exterminate the black race from America. Or about Democrat President Lyndon Baines Johnson stating, “I’ll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.”
I won’t be voting for Hillary Clinton.
