Cancel Culture: ‘Democrat’ belongs in dustbin of history

Cancel THIS Democrats!

In all this frenzy of name changes, one culprit is conspicuously missing. Up to the 1960s the Democratic Party was the party of slavery, Jim Crow, segregation, the Ku Klux Klan, lynching, poll taxes, and literacy tests for voting. The first Confederate Congress was dominated by former Democrats. …

In the contested presidential election of 1876, the Democrats allowed the Republican Rutherford Hayes to assume office … in exchange for the withdrawal of federal troops from the South. This bargain ended Reconstruction and ushered in almost a century during which the Democratic Party dominated Southern politics, implementing a cruel regime of segregation in state after state of the former Confederacy.

Nor were the Democrats in any great hurry to change their racist ways. When Woodrow Wilson became the first Democrat in 16 years to occupy the White House in March 1913, he lost no time re-segregating the civil service. …

It is particularly galling to see that almost all of the recent police abuses have taken place in cities that Democrats have run for many decades. Nonetheless, incompetent and irresponsible incumbent politicians, helped along by the mainstream media, have deflected blame for their own failures by impugning their political opponents as endemically racist.

    OHH MR Blaska, you’re scratching a scab with this one!!! The Left has been suppressing this information for 60 years. You are SPOT ON by referencing the 1876 election. I would urge your readers to investigate a few groups; (1) The RED SHIRTS, (2) The WHITE LEAGUE, and (The REDEEMERS. These groups formed NOT to suppress the Black vote, but to stop Blacks from voting REPUBLICAN. (which Blacks were to a man) If Blacks were willing to vote Democrat , they would have been URGED to vote ! (although at a separate polling site) Democrats continued their intimidation tactics for the next 90 years, always with the goal of suppressing Black votes for Republican candidates. In the 1960’s their RACIST methods switched to “THE SOFT BIGOTRY OF LOW EXPECTATIONS”. ( this coincided with the LIBERAL take over of academia) That brings us to the present day. While Conservatives speak about equal opportunities for all, the Democrats, (seeing everything in terms of RACE ), tell Blacks that they can only succeed with their help. Liberals are the the most insidiously RACIST humans alive. – Don’t Get Me Started!!!-

    Have to give some mention of Lyndon Johnson for being was one of the worst Presidents in history as well. He began the raid on social security to fund the civil rights act among other things and may or may not have muttered something about having those “African Americans“ (he said the n word) voting Democrat for the next 200 years…..he was racist to the core but he was right about the future votes.

    Lest we forget, which is what Lefty is banking on, Margaret Human Weeds Sanger and the RAYcist, classist, elitist Proglibocrat Eugenicists.

    If memory serves, the Progressive Eugenicist desire to…um…regulate reproduction and the population wasn’t restricted to any certain segment of humanity, and The Gotch could make strong case they were far more diabolically RAYcist, hateful, bigoted, discriminatory, elitist, classist, and over a far greater spectrum than any fringe group of White Supremacists or the Ante-Bellum South.

    Why? Because they sought a Greater Good, and with the approval of their own craven consciences.

    Not to over-simplify, but back at the turn of the 20th century, the newly minted BIG GUBMINT Administrative State was coming off a clear victory of disabling the EVIL Corporate Trusts. A goal achieved no longer motivates and, feeling their oats, what next? Hey, howse about improving humanity?

    Natural selection improved society over time, but a glacially slow pace; could these whiz kids jump start that with “Scientific Selection?” C’mon, you could improve flora-n-fauna by selective breeding, am I right? Why not extend those efforts to humans? Heck, what could possibly go wrong?

    Anywho, right here on campus, the U.W. Madison (GO BADGERS!!) was in the thick of the Eugenics craze.

    Selective breeding, forced castrations & sterilizations, work camps, elimination of “inferiors,” ad infinitum ad naseum, Eugenics had everything nascent totalitarian Proglibocrats could want, and then some.

    U.W. academics Charles Van Hise, Edward Ross, John R. Commons, and “Progressive Political Economist and Social Gospel Advocate” Richard T. Ely were of…um…similar mindset; all but Ross would be considered for a Bucky Mt. Rushmore.

    Have their books, awards, scholarships, plaques, their freakin’ memories, been the subject of any weepy hand-wringing? Not that The Gotch’s heard.

    Van Hise Elementary School has “sister” Velma Hamilton Middle School, which may soften some of the historical stigma, of which most aren’t aware.

    And I’ve heard no call for renaming Van Hise Hall on campus yet; you?

      Gotch,

      Good targeting, but hardly sporting. Kinda like shooting fish in a barrel. Racist, atheist, eugenicist, darling of the Democrats, Founder of Planned unParenthood and author of the “Negro Project”, Margaret “Human Weeds” Sanger is still my top favorite socialist/collectivist mass-murderer. She’s worse than Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot or Hitler combined. She has more blood other hands than the entire Confederate army. Her death numbers are still going up.

      She wrote: “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

      Ministers? Hmmm, … aren’t the race-baiting ministers; Sharpton, Jackson and Farrakhan who are still working this same scheme, trying to divide Americans by race, creed and color?

    Maybe Democrats should change the national anthem to “Don’t Know Much About History.”

    The New American Taliban wants to culturally cleanse, rewrite and erase history, because it’s chock-a-block full of examples of their own racism. Keeping their constituents angry, comfortably dumb, infantalized, mollified with crumbs from their master’s table in exchange for their vote every four years, and kept custodially safe on their proglobotic plantation porch is good strategy. But here’s one inconvenient truth; in 1964, Democrats held the longest filibuster in our nation’s history, (75 days), to try and prevent the passing of one thing, The Civil Rights Act.

    Democrats gave us the KKK, Jim Crow, lynchings, poll taxes, literacy tests, and failed policies like the “Great Society” and the “War On Poverty”.

    Republican President Eisenhower ordered troops to enforce school desegregation. Republican Senator Everett Dirksen enabled the 1964 civil rights legislation to pass, in opposition to Senators Robert Byrd (KKK Grand Donkey) and Al Gore, Sr. As a matter of fact, it was Democrat President Lyndon Baines Johnson who stated, “I’ll have those negroes voting Democratic for the next 200 years” Only he didn’t say the word “negroes”, he used the n-word. At least LBJ was honest in his racial bigotry.

    Compare and contrast that history with Republicans. On March 20, 1854 the Republican Party was established in Ripon, Wisconsin. (welcome, VP Pence). The Grand Old Party was established for one reason: to break the chains of slavery and ensure the unalienable rights endowed by the Creator of LIFE, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness would be for ALL Americans.

    The first black members of the US House and Senate were Republicans. The first civil rights legislation came from Republicans. The Republican Party was created to achieve individual freedom. Then, as now, the antagonist to the Republican party has been the Democrats, the party of collective subjugation and individual enslavement, … then physical, now economic.

    • Yeah and the democrats who filibustered became Republicans. Storm Thurmond for example, The parties switched and to not recognize that is to misuse history to epic proportions.

      The Civil Rights Act was the turning point making Southern Democrats into Southern Republicans.

      Also if it is democrats who filibustered the civil rights act and were confederates, why do Southern Republicans fly the confederate flag?

        You mean like…um…misusing the history of the RAYcist/classist/elitist Proglibocrat Eugenicists (Wilson, Sanger, Commons**, Ely**, Van Hise**, Ross**, et al), figuring Lefty would be easily gulled into thinking it never happened, or were it brought up, too incurious to look into it?

        No, just no. Scroll down to “2timothytrump” for a reply. The Civil Rights Act didn’t change Southern Democrats into anything. The “Rebel Flag” is just an “IN YOUR FACE” to other regions of the country, and a source of regional pride. Ninety Percent of people don’t mean anything by it, but, obviously “it’s time has come and gone”. It certainly is not the sole domain of Southern Republicans. If y’all are going to start posting here , at least come prepared.

    The whole “the left are the real racists” thing is not going to work. No one cares.

    It is no wonder this came from the dusty, dried up, infertile, flacid, useless National Review. Gatekeepers who are more interested in corporate profits and denouncing communism than the state of our nation.

    The only way the Democrat party is going to go the way of the Whigs is the same way it happened last time… the Republicans will have to grow to the point of total domination.

    …and that’s why National Review and Cuckservatism has existed. To keep that from happening.

    Tucker Carlson is right – we’re run by a ship of fools. It’s more likely we see a breakup of the USA than the demise of the Democrat party, with this kind of failure to add 1 and 1 going on.

    I am so disappointed by this article. Yes the confederacy were democrats and most Klan members were Democrats but then Lyndon Johnson signed the civil rights bill and the voting rights act and Nixon brought them into the Republican Party and the South has been pretty Republican ever sense.the 1976 and 1992 elections being the exception.

    Two of the most racist senators ever astrometric Thurmond and Jesse Helms ended their careers as Republicans.

    Show me a southern Republican and I bet dollars to donuts his grand daddy was a klan supporter and his ancestor fought for the confederacy.

    The roles have reversed. I am an independent so I believe both parties are wrong on this issue. The democrats have the blame culture and the Republicans was economic policies benefit the wealthy and the white primarily.

    We need a centrist party who will be willing to end the war on drugs, make it a medical issue, save the African American family and invest in minority neighborhoods by investing in minority neighborhood schools As well as non religious charter schools and to bring decent livable wage jobs into minority neighborhoods.

      I wish you and “2timothytrump ” had responded to this 2 days ago. I have no interest in engaging this on an old post. (I’m more interest in reading the opinions of others, than in reading my own words) When the CIVIL RIGHTS / VOTING RIGHTS bills became a reality, the Southern Democrats were faced with a serious threat to their own survival. They went after the Black vote with empty promises, and fabricated threats of what would happen if Republicans were in control. The Republicans did not change. Republicans stayed with the message that “Your obstacles to success have been removed,- get an education, work hard, triumph over adversity”. Your post was five (5) paragraphs long , so a thought on each– (1) the South is Republican because of the Black Vote (2) You are absolutely correct !! Some politicians pander to their base SOOO HARD that they will say anything, take any stance, to get the vote. (Who would have thunk?) George Wallace was another example, ultimately apologizing to Blacks and becoming Republican. (3) That applies to MILLIONS of citizens and means nothing (4) The tactics, not the roles reversed. Economic policies benefit the successful, White and, increasingly Black . I hope you remain Independent, — Republicans/ Democrats, on the national level, are a SWAMP in need of draining. (5) The people here seem to be Constitutional Conservatives, so the list is some what different, but with similar goals – we can discuss methods later
