Factual History Democrats Do Not Want Blacks To Know
Here is more history that black people will not hear, and Democrats want to forget or attempt to spin into something that it isn’t. In 1872, the Republican Party Platform stated: “During eleven years of [congressional] supremacy, it [the Republican Party] has…suppressed a gigantic rebellion, emancipated four millions of slaves, directed the equal citizenship of all, and established universal suffrage [voting]. Complete liberty and exact equality in the enjoyment of all civil, political, and public rights should be established and effectually maintained throughout the Union by efficient and appropriate state and federal legislation. Neither the law nor its administration should admit any discrimination in respect of citizens by reason of African Americans, creed, color, or previous condition of servitude.” (wallbuilders.com)
That very same year, the Democrat Platform read: “We pledge ourselves to maintain the union of these states, emancipation, and enfranchisement, and to oppose any reopening of the questions settled by the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments of the Constitution. We demand the immediate and absolute removal of the rebellion [Civil War] which was finally subdued seven years ago, believing that universal amnesty will result in complete pacification in all sections of the country.”
That sounded good, and if you had stopped reading there you could easily have believed it was a magnanimous display of contrition. But, as it has always been with Democrats, the truth lies in their actions, not their words. “This is a false and misleading promise, for Democrats had relentlessly opposed those Amendments — and the civil rights laws based on them. Not only had Democrats stridently opposed the 13th Amendment, but not a single Democrat in Congress voted either for the 14th Amendment (declaring that former slaves were full citizens and therefore entitled to all rights and privileges of any other citizen in the state in which they lived) or the 15th Amendment (granting explicit voting rights to black Americans). In fact, in the civil rights bill of 1871 to punish the Klan violence, not one Democrat in Congress voted for that bill. The same was true with other major civil rights laws. Therefore, voting records prove this platform declaration by Democrats to be patently false.”
This part of history is discarded and miscast. In fact, the truth is that the very blacks who claim erudition are ignorant of the fact that there even was a Civil Rights Bill of 1871 that included language to punish the Klan. They regurgitate distortions and lies as verifiable facts when, as I show above, they are any but facts.
This is important history. It is history that is not discussed in the 28-day tribute to immiseration and self-imposed victimology, and you can count the public school classrooms it is taught in on probably one hand — with fingers left over.
It is a tragic and venal display of abandoning the truth for political gain on the one hand, and disavowing the truth out of a rabid desire to denounce modernity on the other.
Many blacks are victims. But they are victims of their own making and choosing. They revel in the mire of despair and antipathy. They are invidious and given to self-segregating. The brainwashing of many blacks has been complete to the point of there being a valid question as to how many save the very young can be reached with the truth.
White people are not the enemy of blacks, neither is America. Quite the opposite. Willful and wanton ignorance is the enemy of blacks. And that enemy in the mirror is cannibalizing their minds and beings. The truth is, it’s hard to rescue a drowning man because realizing they are drowning they thrash about and fight the very person(s) who would save them. Such is the analogy pursuant to blacks.
But we cannot allow that to deter the message of truth. Those of us who know the truth must share wholistically. We must realize that ours is a daunting task but a necessary one. This year is an important election year. Democrats have successfully implanted a charade (i.e., Obama), posing as a friend to blacks, when in fact, he, as the blacks in Chicago accurately pointed out after the State of the Union speech, has done nothing for anyone but himself and his cronies.
As long as the prostitution of skin color for political and personal gain, and ignorance of factual history are the rule, blacks will be susceptible to self-limitation. But we cannot allow that to silence the truth. Let’s hear them espouse that message during black history month.
