The Racist Democrat Party
Democrats were, are, and will continue to be the party of black oppression.
Joe Biden popped up from his hunker bunker Wednesday long enough to drop a big race-baiting whopper on Donald Trump. Biden declared that Trump is the first racist to be elected president, and that only he (Biden) can correct the so-called “systemic racism” he claims is plaguing our nation.
Apparently, this was not an issue during Biden’s previous almost 45 years in “public service,” including eight years as Barack Obama’s VP. Yes, that would be the same Obama who Biden described, when they were competing for the 2007 presidential nomination, as “the first mainstream African American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.” Got that?
According to Biden: “The way [Trump] deals with people based on the color of their skin, their national origin, where they’re from, is absolutely sickening. No sitting president has ever done this. … We’ve had racists, and … they’ve tried to get elected president. He’s the first one that has.”
Fact check: Dividing Americans based on “the color of their skin” and “their national origin” is page one of the Democrat Party playbook! Democrats have had great success pandering to black and Hispanic constituents, convincing them they will continue to be helpless victims of injustice if they don’t keep voting “D.” How has that worked out?
Regarding Biden’s BIG Lie about Trump, let’s take a brief walk down the racist Democrat Party history in the 20th century. Two of the most notable racist Democrat presidents were Woodrow Wilson and Lyndon Johnson, though most of the others have certainly harbored racist paternalistic views toward black Americans.
Wilson argued, “Segregation is not humiliating, but a benefit, and ought to be so regarded.” He even hosted a White House screening of the racist movie “Birth of a Nation,” portraying the KKK as the real heroes after the Civil War.
Johnson, who routinely used racist slurs against black people (as recorded in his personal taped conversations), is the architect of the so-called “Great Society” programs that have, effectively, institutionalized black poverty. Regarding passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Johnson said, “I’ll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.” On Democrat strategy, LBJ said: “If you can convince the lowest white man he’s better than the best colored man, he won’t notice you’re picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on and he’ll empty his pockets for you.”
That is the model of black oppression championed by today’s Democrats, and for the same reason.
In 2008, The Wall Street Journal published a remarkable assessment, “The Democrats’ Missing History,” about how, just ahead of Obama’s nomination, the Democrat National Committee “whitewashed the party’s horrific and lengthy record of racism.” On the long list of omissions, Jeffrey Lord notes, “There is no mention that these programs [Wilson’s New Freedom and FDR’s New Deal] were created as the result of an agreement to ignore segregation and the lynching of blacks.” He adds, “There is no reference that three-fourths of the opposition to the 1964 Civil Rights Bill in the U.S. House came from Democrats, or that 80% of the ‘nay’ vote in the Senate came from Democrats. Certainly there is no reference to the fact that the opposition included future Democratic Senate leader Robert Byrd of West Virginia (a former Klan member).”
Likewise, political analyst Bruce Bartlett noted in “Whitewash — the racist history the Democratic Party wants you to forget” that there are loads of entries on the foundational tenets of the Demo regime. He includes documented examples like FDR insisting, “The mingling of Asiatic blood with European or American blood produces, in nine cases out of ten, the most unfortunate results.” He cites LBJ proudly noting, “I have voted against the so-called anti-lynching bill,” and his insistence, “These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness.” And he hits some who had presidential aspirations, like Robert Kennedy, who, as attorney general, said, “I did not lie awake at night worrying about the problems of Negroes.”
Even Jimmy Carter said, “I’m not going to use the federal government’s authority deliberately to circumvent the natural inclination of people to live in ethnically homogeneous neighborhoods … who are trying to maintain the ethnic purity of their neighborhoods.” I know Carter, and he was no racist, but his policies certainly advanced racial division, the staple of the Democrat Party today.
And, no, the old racist Democrats didn’t “switch to the Republican Party” in the 1960s — a canard propagated by today’s Demos. Those racists formed the foundation of the Democrat Party and its effort to divide Americans along every line, racial, ethnic, gender, etc., in order to win elections. Obama mastered that divide-and-conquer strategy in 2008, and Biden is attempting to replicate that reprehensible ruse.
So, coming full circle back to Biden, his words have repeatedly betrayed his underlying racist views over his career. One more example — when discussing why Iowa students perform better than Washington, DC, students, Biden said: “There’s less than 1% of the population of Iowa that is African American. There is probably less than 4% or 5% that is, are minorities. What is it in Washington? So look, it goes back to what you start off with, what you’re dealing with.”
As I noted in my column on leftist cancel culture this week: “Democrats were, are, and will continue to be the party of black oppression. Arguably, the Democrat Party is now, simultaneously, the author and beneficiary of its subjugation of generations of poor Americans under their systemic racism and systemic poverty, which they both seeded and institutionalized over the last century.”
The Democrats’ paternalistic “anti-racism” is racism in disguise, and, to borrow Biden’s phrase, their pandering and patriarchal treatment of Americans “based on the color of their skin … is absolutely sickening.” The Democrat Party is the most enduring monument to racism in America.
Finally, as further evidence that the Democrat Party is infested with haters, it is loaded with constituents who are “obstinately or unreasonably attached to a belief, opinion, or faction, especially one who is prejudiced against or antagonistic toward a person or people on the basis of their membership of a particular group.” That is also the definition of a bigot. And that helps explain why Biden has been endorsed by racists.
