They Both Gave Speeches: Was One Racist?

I’m growing tired of the incessant use of the words “racist” and “racism.” They are thrown about so often that the true meanings have been lost to most of us. We’ve grown mind-numbed or just tune-out when people throw them into the air.

What’s worse is that politicians — specifically ONE group of politicians — have chosen to take ownership of the use of the words: the Democrat Party. There’s much U.S. history to confirm that. But much of it has been stealthily removed from American history books by leftist educators and politicians over the last 50-60 years. After all, a political party that claims to be the sole supporters of people of color cannot be known as a bunch of racists who do little but spread their racism to all who dare listen.

You can always tell when someone has a guilty conscience or feel guilty of doing something wrong. Typically they gravitate toward behaviors that would remove any attention away from them and direct it elsewhere. Only one political party in the United States has a history of racism, and that’s the Democratic Party. Republicans were the party of Lincoln, Reconstruction, anti-lynching laws, and the Civil Rights Acts of 1875, 1957, 1960, and 1964. So what is the Democratic Party guilty of?  They are the party that has always been aligned with the KKK, Jim Crow Laws, and Margaret Sanger, to name a few.

One can only imagine the guilt Democrats must carry decade after decade due to the shameful yet well-disguised racism they pretend to despise.  Democrats have erased people like Josiah Walls, Hiram Rhodes Revel, and Joseph Hayne Rainey from history books a long time ago. Removing their past has been an ongoing process over the years. The Democrats, not Republicans, try to entice people of color with duplicitous incentives and false narratives. It is the Democrats who overwhelmingly try to convince the black community they are the saviors of civil liberties in this country.

The Democrat Party has always been pro-slavery. In the late 1850s, the Republican Party came into being a response and opposition to the Democrat Party. The first seven African Americans elected to office happened between 1865 and 1877, and they were all Republicans. Most black Americans were Republicans at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century.

By the mid-1860s, the Republican Party, which was aligned with African Americans, put quite a strain on Democrats, resulting in the Democrat Party’s creation of the KKK. The relationship between the two groups, the KKK and Democrat Party, was confirmed during the 1868 Democrat National Convention when General Nathan Bedford Forrest, a former Civil war general, was made the first Grand Wizard of the KKK.  The KKK was part of the Confederate Democrat Party from 1865 to Reagan, and the ideals of structural racism remained until and beyond Bill Clinton. It was the Democrat Party and its leaders who created structural racism to maintain political power.

Despite their attempts to remove history from their timeline, it is still well documented in a thirteen-volume set of Congressional investigations beginning 1872.  “The official documents, titled Report of the Joint Select Committee to Inquire Into the Condition of Affairs in the Late Insurrectionary States, irrefutably proves the KKK’s prominent role in the Democrat Party.”

Jim Crow Laws were another way to control and promote racism in the United States by the Democrat Party. They were intended to oppress anyone of color, including Sicilians, spread segregation, and prevent individuals from getting jobs. “The Democrats of the recent past wrote laws which segregated public schools, restaurants, transportation, restrooms, and public places in general (everything from water machines to public beaches).”  Citation USA Today Network  Many of the monuments depict Confederate Democrat Party Leaders of the past.

Margaret Sanger was the founder of Planned Parenthood and a Democrat.  Sanger and her beliefs have been idolized by Democrats for decades and still are today.  In 2009 Hillary Clinton won the Planned Parenthood award where she said: “I admire Margaret Sanger enormously — her courage, her tenacity, her vision.  And when I think about what she did all those years ago in Brooklyn, taking on archetypes, taking on attitudes and accusations flowing from all directions, I am really in awe of her.”

So, who is Margaret Sanger, and what were her beliefs?

Sanger founded Planned Parenthood, The Birth Control Review, and she embraced eugenics. “Eugenics encouraged people of so-called healthy, superior stock to reproduce and discouraged reproduction of the mentally challenged or anyone who fell outside the social norm. Eugenics was popular in America during much of the first half of the twentieth century. Yet, it earned its negative association mainly from Adolf Hitler’s obsessive attempts to create a superior Aryan race.”[1]  Supporters of Eugenics include Francis Galton, Adolph Hitler, and Josef Mengele.

Sanger was also one of the founding Foremothers of the Progressive Movement. Some of her beliefs and teachings included:

“The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.” [2]

“We want a world freer, happier, cleaner; we want a race of thoroughbreds.” [3]

“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” [4]

Planned Parenthood is the largest provider of abortions nationwide.  They have done a great job in creating the illusion that they benefit anyone of color. Seventy-nine percent of Planned Parenthood abortion facilities are located within walking distance of Latina or Black communities. Tracking the abortion industry clearly shows that they target women of color. They use tactics that include career and education as being more important over the lives of their babies. Planned Parenthood has consistently refused to publish data on the proportion of abortions and sterilization of minorities worldwide.

“Between 2007 and 2010, nearly 36 percent of all abortions in the United States were performed on black children, even though black Americans make up only 13 percent of our population. A further 21 percent of abortions were performed on Hispanics, and 7 percent more on other minority groups, for a total of 64 percent of U.S. abortions tragically performed on minority groups” [5]

“Many legislators benefit from Planned Parenthood’s generosity. “Recently, several Democrat U.S. senators incredibly cited race when opposing a bill requiring medical aid for babies born alive after a botched abortion. One stated that black babies are three times more likely to die in their first year, which is an odd reason to withhold care from them. Another Senator cited racial disparities in the healthcare industry to justify not giving lifesaving aid to already-born infants. A third Democrat Senator cited abortion as a means of lowering the 700 maternal mortality cases each year in the United States.” [6]

Today, 500,000 unborn black babies die a year. The most dangerous place for a black child today is in the womb of its own mother. The Child has a 50% chance of living or dying.[7]

Summary

Wednesday evening, racism among politicians was on full display in the Capitol as President Biden gave his first presidential address to Congress. As Democrats now do in unison, he painted a picture of the nation as one which shelters racists and promotes racism. He used it as a tool against any that disagree with his statements. But he and other Democrats don’t stop there. Simply disagreeing with Democrat Party leaders about racism means you’re a racist! The President of the United States actually made a case for that without even intimating that allegation was his personal “opinion.” It is most likely that President Biden doesn’t think that claim is simply an opinion. That makes the problem of race in the nation that much more stark and ugly.

What sadly drove those points home was the response speech from the GOP that was given by African American Senator Tim Scott (R-SC). Senator Scott detailed the true racism he and others in his family through multiple generations in the South have experienced. No doubt it was real. No doubt it was egregious with nasty results. But Senator Scott did not, in his life, accept the Democrat Party mantra that ALL whites are racist, that ALL conservatives in the nation espouse racism simply because they are white, and that he and millions of other black Americans have believed in our structure, our laws, our institutions, and the American people and have refused to drive Americans apart by using shouts of racism against others.

Tim Scott ended his speech by pushing back on President Biden’s claim that the United States is systemically racist. Scott loudly proclaimed, “The United States is NOT a racist country!”

I’ll close with this observation:

There certainly is MUCH racism in our country. And it was on full display following the President’s speech and Tim Scott’s response. Racism was blatantly obvious in the responses to Senator Scott’s speech and its contents.

  • On MSNBC, political commentator Joy Ann-Reid expressed disappointment in Scott’s speech noting he failed to speak about his work on the George Floyd Act and called his speech “standard Republican pabulum,” which could have been delivered by Sens. Tom Cotton or Mike Lee.
  • On CNN, commentator Van Jones expressed dismay about Scott’s speech and said he lost many African-Americans “by the tens of millions” when he said that America was not racist.
  • Responding to Scott’s speech on ABC’s Good Morning America on Thursday, Vice President Kamala Harris said she doesn’t believe America is a racist country. Still, she noted: “we also do have to speak the truth about racism in this country, and its existence today.”
  • American civil rights leader and political activist Rev. Jesse Jackson criticized the Republican party after Scott’s rebuttal speech, tweeting: ”The R[epublican]s putting Scott behind Biden tonight was disgraceful & embarrassing. R[epublican]s applaud Scott & boo Colin Powell. It’s the cruelest manipulation of a politician I’ve seen. Scott’s logic was weak & sick. Again, R[epublican]s try to make Clarence Thomas & Thurgood Marshall interchangeable.”
  • MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow started by saying, “it’s going to be hard for most people that are paying any attention to politics to swallow the ‘Republicans support making it easier to vote’ line. There’s some stuff there that may make sense in a sliver of Republican world, but in the news world, I don’t think will ring.”
  • MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace agreed and said, “This is a speech delivered from a planet where facts don’t matter, which is where the current Republican party resides, so it’s not really his fault. But it is his responsibility to get his facts straight. The most reprehensible thing he said was his remarks about the Georgia voting law.”
  • Lawrence O’Donnell even took issue with Scott saying, “Our president seems like a good man. He (Scott) couldn’t bring himself to say to Republican voters who he wants to raise money from ‘our president is a good man. If you asked Joe Biden about Tim Scott, there’s no circumstance in which Joe Biden wouldn’t say, ‘Tim Scott’s a good man, and then he’d go onto talk about his disagreements.”

It’s from their own mouths, and it’s from a mixed batch: straight, gay, black, white, male, and female. Listening to them after listening to President Biden and Tim Scott proved something to me: there’s plenty of racism in the nation to go around. It also proves that an elite class of wannabe “experts” has marshaled the “permission and authority” to be THE arbiters of who is and who isn’t racist.

Do you know what’s oddest about their doing that? It shows that even Democrat sycophants can be — and many are — Racists!
