Let's Put to Bed, Talk of Which Party More Racist......


Recommended Posts

I'd really like to HELP those like "dontlook,don'tknow", "lored", "alang1216".....Perhaps "alang" most, because most people, of a far-left view, seem hopelessly brainwashed beyond repair...But I detect some hope for some, who are embarrassed enough to try and make a rationale, or try and change subjects, when caught, trying to making EXCUSES, or minimizing the behavior and HISTORY, of scumm like Democrats Robert Byrd, Richard Russell, Claude Pepper, Hugo Black, ALL K.K.K MEMBERS O SYMPATHIZERS. (READ THEIR QUOTES BELOW)- Johnson, Sam ervin, etc., etc....dozens more..Some modern Libs are just sadly misinformed, throughout their lives, whether by Leftist teachers, or friends, peers they were afraid to challenge, etc... THESE QUOTES BELOW, ALL FROM DEMOCRATS, ARE PART OF HISTORY, THEY CAN BE FOUND IN THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS.

THEY ARE NOT "from a Far Right wing news source", Lore.

They have been around since the 18oo's, and are in the Library of Congress. I could shame you more, if you persist...

 

Why don't we just AGREE, that the Democrat Party has been STEEPED IN RACISM, SINCE ITS INCEPTION, AND STILL HAS PEOPLE WHO WOULD VOTE FOR A DANGEROUS SOCIALIST, MERELY BECAUSE OF THE MELANIN CONTENT OF HIS SKIN, AND A "PRESIDENT" AND ATTY GENERAL WHO EXCUSE, AND SAYS, "I won't do dat to mah peoples", WHEN ASKED WHY HE REFUSED TO PROSECUTE BLACK PANTHERS THREATING 80-YR.-OLD WHITE LADIES ON ELECTION DAY, SCARING THEM AWAY FROM VOTING BOOTHS IN PHILADELPHIA.

Just READ your lovely Party Members, BELOW!

In his 2007 article, Bruce Bartlett reminded us of the racist history of the Democratic Party: “[Democrats] were openly and explicitly for slavery before the Civil War, supported lynching and “Jim Crow” laws after the war, and regularly defended segregation and white supremacy throughout most of the 20th century.”

Bartlett also provided a list of racist quotes from prominent Democrats:

 

“I am a former Kleagle [recruiter] of the Ku Klux Klan in Raleigh County. . . . The Klan is needed today as never before and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia. It is necessary that the order be promoted immediately and in every state in the union.”

–Robert C. Byrd, 1946 Democratic Senator from West Virginia, 1959-present Senate Majority Leader, 1977-80 and 1987-88 Senate President Pro Tempore, 1989-95, 2001-03, 2007-present His portrait stands in the U.S. Capitol.

 

President Truman’s civil rights program “is a farce and a sham–an effort to set up a police state in the guise of liberty. I am opposed to that program. I have voted against the so-called poll tax repeal bill. . .. I have voted against the so-called anti-lynching bill.”

–Rep. Lyndon B. Johnson (D., Texas), 1948 U.S. Senator, 1949-61
Senate Majority Leader, 1955-61 President, 1963-69

 

“This is a white man’s country, and will always remain a white man’s country.”

“This passport which you have given me is a symbol to me of the passport which you have given me before. I do not feel that it would be out of place to state to you here on this occasion that I know that without the support of the members of this organization I would not have been called, even by my enemies, the ‘Junior Senator from Alabama.’ “

–Hugo Black, accepting a life membership in the Ku Klux Klan upon his election to the U.S. Senate as a Democrat from Alabama, 1926 Appointed to the Supreme Court by Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1937

 

“You cannot go into a Dunkin’ Donuts or a 7-Eleven unless you have a slight Indian accent.”

“My state was a slave state. My state is a border state. My state has the eighth largest black population in the country. My state is anything [but] a Northeastern liberal state.”

“I mean, you got the first mainstream African American [barack Obama] who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice looking guy.”

“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.”

Sen. Joseph Biden Jr., (D., Del.), 2006-07 Chairman, Committee on the Judiciary, 1987-95 Chairman, Committee on Foreign Relations Candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, 2008

 

If blacks were given the right to vote, that would “place every splay-footed, bandy-shanked, hump-backed, thick-lipped, flat-nosed, woolly-headed, ebon-colored Negro in the country upon an equality with the poor white man.”

–Rep. Andrew Johnson, (D., Tenn.), 1844 President, 1865-69

 

Blacks “are inferior to the whites in the endowments of both of body and mind.”

–Thomas Jefferson, 1787 Co-founder of the Democratic Party (along with Andrew Jackson) President, 1801-09

 

“I hold that the present state of civilization, where two races of different origin, and distinguished by color, and other physical differences, as well as intellectual, are brought together, the relation now existing in the slaveholding states between the two, is, instead of an evil, a good–a positive good.”

–Sen. John C. Calhoun (D., S.C.), 1837 Vice President, 1825-32

“Resolved, That claiming fellowship with, and desiring the co-operation of all who regard the preservation of the Union under the Constitution as the paramount issue–and repudiating all sectional parties and platforms concerning domestic slavery, which seek to embroil the States and incite to treason and armed resistance to law in the Territories; and whose avowed purposes, if consummated, must end in civil war and disunion, the American Democracy recognize and adopt the principles contained in the organic laws establishing the Territories of Kansas and Nebraska as embodying the only sound and safe solution of the ‘slavery question’ upon which the great national idea of the people of this whole country can repose in its determined conservatism of the Union–NON-INTERFERENCE BY CONGRESS WITH SLAVERY IN STATE AND TERRITORY, OR IN THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA” (emphasis in original).

–Platform of the Democratic Party, 1856

–Sen. Stephen A. Douglas (D., Ill.), 1858 Presidential nominee of the Democratic Party, 1860

“My fellow citizens, I have said that the contest before us was one for the restoration of our government; it is also one for the restoration of our race. It is to prevent the people of our race from being exiled from their homes–exiled from the government which they formed and created for themselves and for their children, and to prevent them from being driven out of the country or trodden under foot by an inferior and barbarous race.”

–Francis P. Blair Jr., accepting the Democratic nomination for Vice President, 1868 Democratic Senator from Missouri, 1869-72His statue stands in the U.S. Capitol.

–Sen. Hoke Smith (D., Ga.), 1912 Appointed Secretary of the Interior by Grover Cleveland in 1893

 

“The South is serious with regard to its attitude to the Negro in politics. The South understands this subject, and its policy is unalterable and uncompromising. We desire no concessions. We seek no sops. We grasp no shadows on this subject. We take no risks. We abhor a Northern policy of catering to the Negro in politics just as we abhor a Northern policy of social equality.”

“The Negro as a race, in all the ages of the world, has never shown sustained power of self-development. He is not endowed with the creative faculty. . . . He has never created for himself any civilization. . . . He has never had any civilization except that which has been inculcated by a superior race. And it is a lamentable fact that his civilization lasts only so long as he is in the hands of the white man who inculcates it. When left to himself he has universally gone back to the barbarism of the jungle.”

–Sen. James Vardaman (D., Miss.), 1914 Chairman, Committee on Natural Resources, 1913-19

 

“Slavery among the whites was an improvement over independence in Africa. The very progress that the blacks have made, when–and only when–brought into contact with the whites, ought to be a sufficient argument in support of white supremacy–it ought to be sufficient to convince even the blacks themselves.”

–William Jennings Bryan, 1923 Presidential nominee of the Democratic Party, 1896, 1900 and 1908 Appointed Secretary of State by Woodrow Wilson in 1913 His statue stands in the U.S. Capitol.

 

“Anyone who has traveled to the Far East knows that the mingling of Asiatic blood with European or American blood produces, in nine cases out of ten, the most unfortunate results. . . . The argument works both ways. I know a great many cultivated, highly educated and delightful Japanese. They have all told me that they would feel the same repugnance and objection to have thousands of Americans settle in Japan and intermarry with the Japanese as I would feel in having large numbers of Japanese coming over here and intermarry with the American population. In this question, then, of Japanese exclusion from the United States it is necessary only to advance the true reason–the undesirability of mixing the blood of the two peoples. . . . The Japanese people and the American people are both opposed to intermarriage of the two races–there can be no quarrel there.”

–Franklin D. Roosevelt, 1925 President, 1933-45

 

“Mr. President, the crime of lynching . . . is not of sufficient importance to justify this legislation.”

–Sen. Claude Pepper (D., Fla.), 1938 Spoken while engaged in a six-hour speech against the antilynching bill

 

“There is no warrant for the curious notion that Christianity favors the involuntary commingling of the races in social institutions. Although He knew both Jews and Samaritans and the relations existing between them, Christ did not advocate that courts or legislative bodies should compel them to mix socially against their will.”

–Sen. Sam Ervin (D., N.C.), 1955 Chairman, Committee on Government Operations, 1971-75

 

“The decline and fall of the Roman empire came after years of intermarriage with other races. Spain was toppled as a world power as a result of the amalgamation of the races. . . . Certainly history shows that nations composed of a mongrel race lose their strength and become weak, lazy and indifferent.”

–Herman E. Talmadge, 1955 Democratic Senator from Georgia, 1957-81

Chairman, Committee on Agriculture, 1971-81

 

“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. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference. For if we don’t move at all, then their allies will line up against us and there’ll be no way of stopping them, we’ll lose the filibuster and there’ll be no way of putting a brake on all sorts of wild legislation. It’ll be Reconstruction all over again.”

–Sen. Lyndon B. Johnson (D., Texas), 1957

 

“I have never seen very many white people who felt they were being imposed upon or being subjected to any second-class citizenship if they were directed to a waiting room or to any other public facility to wait or to eat with other white people. Only the Negroes, of all the races which are in this land,
publicly proclaim they are being mistreated, imposed upon, and declared second-class citizens because they must go to public facilities with members of their own race.”

–Sen. Richard B. Russell Jr. (D., Ga.), 1961 The Russell Senate Office Building is named for him.

 

“I did not lie awake at night worrying about the problems of Negroes.”

–Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, 1961 Kennedy later authorized wiretapping the phones and bugging the hotel rooms of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

 

“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. . . . I have nothing against a community that’s made up of people who are Polish or Czechoslovakian or French-Canadian or blacks who are trying to maintain the ethnic purity of their neighborhoods.”

–Jimmy Carter, 1976 President, 1977-81 Winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, 2002

 

“The Confederate Memorial has had a special place in my life for many years. . . . There were many, many times that I found myself drawn to this deeply inspiring memorial, to contemplate the sacrifices of others, several of whom were my ancestors, whose enormous suffering and collective gallantry are to this day still misunderstood by most Americans.”

–James Webb, 1990 Now a Democratic Senator from Virginia

 

“Everybody likes to go to Geneva. I used to do it for the Law of the Sea conferences and you’d find these potentates from down in Africa, you know, rather than eating each other, they’d just come up and get a good square meal in Geneva.”

–Sen. Ernest F. Hollings (D., S.C.) 1993 Chairman, Commerce Committee, 1987-95 and 2001-03 Candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, 1984

 

“I do not think it is an exaggeration at all to say to my friend from West Virginia [sen. Robert C. Byrd, a former Ku Klux Klan recruiter] that he would have been a great senator at any moment. . . . He would have been right during the great conflict of civil war in this nation.”

–Sen. Christopher Dodd (D., Conn.), 2004 Chairman, Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, 2008

 

“It has of late become the custom of the men of the South to speak with entire candor of the settled and deliberate policy of suppressing the negro vote. They have been forced to choose between a policy of manifest injustice toward the blacks and the horrors of negro rule. They chose to disfranchise the negroes. That was manifestly the lesser of two evils. . . . The Republican Party committed a great public crime when it gave the right of suffrage to the blacks. . . . So long as the Fifteenth Amendment stands, the menace of the rule of the blacks will impend, and the safeguards against it must be maintained.”

–Editorial, “The Political Future of the South,” New York Times, May 10, 1900

Racists were popular in both parties, but today they are 98% in the repub party. I've never defended southern dems of the 50s. Heck, they're the tea party of today! Lincoln is as far from today's repub as you could possibly be. Heck, Reagan would get laughed out of the primary. I doubt he could even run.

Wonder what percentage of whites voted for the republicans?

 

dln, we all know that you're trying to suggest that most whites voted against Obama because they were voting against a black.

 

I don't believe that's demonstrable since there were MANY policy differences between the candidates that could account for the disparity in the white vote.

 

In contrast, a vast number of blacks admitted they were voting for Obama in the general election simply because he was black.

 

Even some Republican blacks did that.

 

And hey said it again in his reelection, even though they were clearly unhappy with his job performance.

 

Ironically, Obama won the Democratic primary due to something akin to an electoral college system.

 

Hillary actually won the popular vote, receiving 48.04% of it compared to Obama's 47.31%.

 

(Perhaps to hurt blacks, Democrats are busy trying to overturn the electoral college system in the general election.)

 

In any case, according to this ... http://anepigone.blogspot.com/2008/06/democratic-nomination-voter-totals-by.html

 

... Hillary got 14.9% of the Democratic black vote whereas Obama got 85.1% of that vote in the Democratic primary.

 

This again suggests blacks are clearly voting based on race.

 

Now you seem to imply that race was the reason that 39% of whites voted for Obama in the general election while 59% voted for his white Republican opponent.

 

But the results from the Democratic Primary for whites suggests otherwise.

 

Obama got 44% of the Democratic white vote while Hillary got 56% of it.

 

This split is very close to the split of the white vote in the general election between Obama and a white candidate.

 

Which means if race is a factor in the white vote, then it must be a factor among Democrat whites too.

 

(And here we thought Democrats couldn't be racist.)

 

Further, there was far less difference between the campaign position of Hillary and Obama, than between Obama and his GOP opponent.

 

I suggest that if race wasn't an issue among white Democrats, one would have expected to see a much smaller difference.

 

Yet that's not the case.

 

The difference is relatively small ... a few percent.

 

Therefore, if most whites in the general election voted against Obama because of his leftist background and his leftist agenda ...

 

... there must be far more racists in the Democratic Party than in the Republican Party.

 

That's the only thing that can really explain why Hillary got 56% of the white vote.

 

And isn't that what I've been saying?

 

That the Democrats are more racist than Republicans?

 

That history shows it was Republicans who most promoted legislation on Civil and Voting rights?

 

That history shows it is Democratic policies that have most hurt the economic status and educational level of blacks over the years?

 

That Democratic policies are why blacks remain stuck at unemployment and poverty rates that are as bad as they were in the early 60s.

 

I think this data actually proves the opposite of why you implied, Tommy.

 

I think it proves blacks are VERY racist and that the average white Democrats are more racist than the average white Republican.

 

:D

Lets look at today and not sixty years ago.

 

 

ALL right, "don'tknow", you little coward.....

I know you're AFRAID to debate the disgusting record of your "Tolerant" "friend to minorities" Party, that had as it's HERO, a Ku Klu Klan Kleagle, a Recruiter who ADMITTED TO BEING AT MANY LYNCHINGS, WHEN IT MADE HIM "POPULAR"!

So, let's give you some help, like when they give little kids "T-ball", they set the baseball on a TEE, so they can hit it.

 

I'll EVEN give you EXTRA RUNS, Haahaha..Or we'll do it the Liberal Way!...WE WON'T EVEN KEEP SCORE,

and when you LOSE, we'll make sure you get a TROPHY, so it won't hurt your Self-Esteem, Haaaaaaahahahaha!

 

Let's start at 1964, and go FORWARD!

 

“Democrats are unwavering in our support of equal opportunity for all Americans. That’s why we’ve worked to pass every one of our nation’s Civil Rights laws… On every civil rights issue, Democrats have led the fight.”

June 10, 1964

Senate Minority Leader Everett Dirksen (R-IL) criticizes Democrat filibuster against 1964 Civil Rights Act, calls on Democrats to stop opposing racial equality. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was introduced and approved by a staggering majority of Republicans in the Senate. The Act was opposed by most southern Democrat senators, several of whom were proud segregationists—one of them being Al Gore Sr. Democrat President Lyndon B. Johnson relied on Illinois Senator Everett Dirksen, the Republican leader from Illinois, to get the Act passed.

 

August 4, 1965

Senate Republican Leader Everett Dirksen (R-IL) overcomes Democrat attempts to block 1965 Voting Rights Act; 94% of Senate Republicans vote for landmark civil right legislation, while 27% of Democrats oppose. Voting Rights Act of 1965, abolishing literacy tests and other measures devised by Democrats to prevent African-Americans from voting, signed into law; higher percentage of Republicans than Democrats vote in favor

 

February 19, 1976

President Gerald Ford formally rescinds President Franklin Roosevelt’s notorious Executive Order authorizing internment of over 120,000 Japanese-Americans during WWII

September 15, 1981

President Ronald Reagan establishes the White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities, to increase African-American participation in federal education programs

 

June 29, 1982

President Ronald Reagan signs 25-year extension of 1965 Voting Rights Act

 

August 10, 1988

President Ronald Reagan signs Civil Liberties Act of 1988, compensating Japanese-Americans for deprivation of civil rights and property during World War II internment ordered by FDR

 

November 21, 1991

President George H. W. Bush signs Civil Rights Act of 1991 to strengthen federal civil rights legislation

 

August 20, 1996

Bill authored by U.S. Rep. Susan Molinari (R-NY) to prohibit racial discrimination in adoptions, part of Republicans’ Contract With America, becomes law

And let’s not forget the words of liberal icon Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood…

We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population….

So the next time any Democrat claims they’ve been supportive of civil rights in America (and been so all along), ask them to explain their past. “We’ve grown” is not gonna cut it, considering they continue to lie about their past to this day, and only someone lacking in common sense would believe two distinct political parties could juxtaposition their stances on civil rights seemingly overnight.

And I’m tired of the recitation that Southern Democrats became racist Republicans and took those tendencies with them. Even today, it never takes long for a Democrat to play the race card purely for political advantage.

 

 

HERE'S YOUR HERO, THE POST-RACIAL PRES, BARRY SOERTERO, aka BARNEY SMITH, aka BARACK OBAMA, born in.......?

 

 

12) "It was usually an effective tactic, another one of those tricks I had learned: (White) People were satisfied so long as you were courteous and smiled and made no sudden moves. They were more than satisfied, they were relieved -- such a pleasant surprise to find a well-mannered young black man who didn't seem angry all the time." -- Barack Obama

11) "The point I was making was not that Grandmother harbors any racial animosity. But she is a typical white person..." --Barack Obama

 

9) "I don’t believe it is possible to transcend race in this country. Race is a factor in this society. The legacy of Jim Crow and slavery (Democrat Policies) has not gone away. It is not an accident that African-Americans experience high crime rates, are poor, and have less wealth. It is a direct result of our racial history." -Barack Obama

 

(Yes, barack, it has NOTHING TO DO with the fact they would RATHER SELL CRACK, DOPE, AND POISON OTHER KIDS, BLACK AND WHITE, THAN WORK AN ENTRY-LEVEL JOB, LIKE WE ALL HAD TO. It has NOTHING to do with the fact YOUR DEMOCRAP PARTY TELLS THEM TO KEEP VOTING FOR HANDOUTS, INSTEAD OF EARNING A LIVING, LIKE THEIR BLACK GRANDPARENT'S ETHICS TOLD THEM TO!)

-

 

7) "That's just how white folks will do you. It wasn't merely the cruelty involved; I was learning that black people could be mean and then some. It was a particular brand of arrogance, an obtuseness in otherwise sane people that brought forth our bitter laughter. It was as if whites didn't know that they were being cruel in the first place. Or at least thought you deserving of their scorn." -- Barack Obama

6) "It is this world, a world where cruise ships throw away more food in a day than most residents of Port-au-Prince see in a year, where white folks' greed runs a world in need, apartheid in one hemisphere, apathy in another hemisphere...That's the world! On which hope sits!" -- Barack Obama quotes Rev. Wright

 

3) "I can no more disown (Jeremiah Wright)(the man who called Jews pigs and monkeys, said all Whites are Devils) than I can disown the black community. I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother - a woman who helped raise me, a woman who sacrificed again and again for me, a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world, but a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed by her on the street, and who on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe." (and THEN HE DISSED HIM, AND "DISOWNED" HIM!) -- Barack Obama

 

HERE'S SOME MORE MODERN GEMS FOR YA,

"don'tknow" !!

"You f*cking Jew b@stard." -- Hillary Clinton to political operative Paul Fray. This was revealed in "State of a Union: Inside the Complex Marriage of Bill and Hillary Clinton" and has been verified by Paul Fray and three witnesses.

"The Jews don't like Farrakhan, so they call me Hitler. Well, that's a good name. Hitler was a very great man. He rose Germany up from the ashes." -- Louis Farrakhan (1984) who campaigned for congresswoman Cynthia McKinney in 2002

"Now that nation called Israel, never has had any peace in forty years and she will never have any peace because there can never be any peace structured on injustice, thievery, lying and deceit and using the name of God to shield your dirty religion under his holy and righteous name." -- Louis Farrakhan who campaigned for congresswoman Cynthia McKinney in 2002, 1984

'Hymies.' 'Hymietown.' -- Jesse Jackson's description of New York City while on the 1984 presidential campaign trail.

"Jews — that's J-E-W-S." -- Democratic state representative Bill McKinney on why his daughter Cynthia lost in 2002

On Whites

"I want to go up to the closest white person and say: 'You can't understand this, it's a black thing' and then slap him, just for my mental health."

-- Charles Barron, a New York city councilman at a reparations rally, 2002

"Civil rights laws were not passed to protect the rights of white men and do not apply to them." -- Mary Frances Berry, Chairwoman, US Commission on Civil Rights

(I) "will not let the white boys win in this election." -- Donna Brazile, Al Gore's Campaign Manager on the 2000 election

"The old white boys got taken fair and square." -- San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown after winning an election

"There are white n*ggers. I've seen a lot of white n*ggers in my time." -- Former Klansman and Current US Senator Robert Byrd, a man who is referred to by many Democrats as the "conscience of the Senate" in March of 2001

"The Medicaid system must have been developed by a white male slave owner.(Musta been a Democrat, huh, be-yotch?) It pays for you to be pregnant and have a baby, but it won't pay for much family planning." -- Jocelyn Elders

The white man is our mortal enemy, and we cannot accept him. I will fight to see that vicious beast go down into the lake of fire prepared for him from the beginning, that he never rise again to give any innocent black man, woman or child the hell that he has delighted in pouring on us for 400 years." -- Louis Farrakhan who campaigned for congresswoman Cynthia McKinney in 2002, City College audience in New York

"There's no great, white bigot; there's just about 200 million little white bigots out there." -- USA Today columnist Julienne Malveaux

"We have lost to the white racist press and to the racist reactionary Jewish misleaders." -- Former Rep. Gus Savage (D-Illinois) after his defeat 1992

"White folks was in caves while we was building empires... We taught philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it." -- Rev. Al Sharpton in a 1994 speech at Kean College, NJ, cited in "Democrats Do the Dumbest Things

"The white race is the cancer of human history." -- Susan Sontag

"Reparations are a really good way for white people to admit they're wrong." -- Zack Webb, University Of Kentucky NAACP

‘The Slaves That Time Forgot’

John Martin

They came as slaves; vast human cargo transported on tall British ships bound for the Americas. They were shipped by the hundreds of thousands and included men, women, and even the youngest of children.

Whenever they rebelled or even disobeyed an order, they were punished in the harshest ways. Slave owners would hang their human property by their hands and set their hands or feet on fire as one form of punishment. They were burned alive and had their heads placed on pikes in the marketplace as a warning to other captives.

We don’t really need to go through all of the gory details, do we? After all, we know all too well the atrocities of the African slave trade. But, are we talking about African slavery? King James II and Charles I led a continued effort to enslave the Irish. Britain’s famed Oliver Cromwell furthered this practice of dehumanizing one’s next door neighbor.

The Irish slave trade began when James II sold 30,000 Irish prisoners as slaves to the New World. His Proclamation of 1625 required Irish political prisoners be sent overseas and sold to English settlers in the West Indies. By the mid 1600s, the Irish were the main slaves sold to Antigua and Montserrat. At that time, 70% of the total population of Montserrat were Irish slaves.

Ireland quickly became the biggest source of human livestock for English merchants. The majority of the early slaves to the New World were actually white.

From 1641 to 1652, over 500,000 Irish were killed by the English and another 300,000 were sold as slaves. Ireland’s population fell from about 1,500,000 to 600,000 in one single decade. Families were ripped apart as the British did not allow Irish dads to take their wives and children with them across the Atlantic. This led to a helpless population of homeless women and children. Britain’s solution was to auction them off as well.

During the 1650s, over 100,000 Irish children between the ages of 10 and 14 were taken from their parents and sold as slaves in the West Indies, Virginia and New England. In this decade, 52,000 Irish (mostly women and children) were sold to Barbados and Virginia. Another 30,000 Irish men and women were also transported and sold to the highest bidder. In 1656, Cromwell ordered that 2000 Irish children be taken to Jamaica and sold as slaves to English settlers.

Many people today will avoid calling the Irish slaves what they truly were: Slaves. They’ll come up with terms like “Indentured Servants” to describe what occurred to the Irish. However, in most cases from the 17th and 18th centuries, Irish slaves were nothing more than human cattle.

As an example, the African slave trade was just beginning during this same period. It is well recorded that African slaves, not tainted with the stain of the hated Catholic theology and more expensive to purchase, were often treated far better than their Irish counterparts.

African slaves were very expensive during the late 1600s (50 Sterling). Irish slaves came cheap (no more than 5 Sterling). If a planter whipped or branded or beat an Irish slave to death, it was never a crime. A death was a monetary setback, but far cheaper than killing a more expensive African. The English masters quickly began breeding the Irish women for both their own personal pleasure and for greater profit. Children of slaves were themselves slaves, which increased the size of the master’s free workforce. Even if an Irish woman somehow obtained her freedom, her kids would remain slaves of her master. Thus, Irish moms, even with this new found emancipation, would seldom abandon their kids and would remain in servitude.

In time, the English thought of a better way to use these women (in many cases, girls as young as 12) to increase their market share: The settlers began to breed Irish women and girls with African men to produce slaves with a distinct complexion. These new “mulatto” slaves brought a higher price than Irish livestock and, likewise, enabled the settlers to save money rather than purchase new African slaves. This practice of interbreeding Irish females with African men went on for several decades and was so widespread that, in 1681, legislation was passed “forbidding the practice of mating Irish slave women to African slave men for the purpose of producing slaves for sale.” In short, it was stopped only because it interfered with the profits of a large slave transport company.

England continued to ship tens of thousands of Irish slaves for more than a century. Records state that, after the 1798 Irish Rebellion, thousands of Irish slaves were sold to both America and Australia. There were horrible abuses of both African and Irish captives. One British ship even dumped 1,302 slaves into the Atlantic Ocean so that the crew would have plenty of food to eat.

There is little question that the Irish experienced the horrors of slavery as much (if not more in the 17th Century) as the Africans did. There is, also, very little question that those brown, tanned faces you witness in your travels to the West Indies are very likely a combination of African and Irish ancestry. In 1839, Britain finally decided on it’s own to end it’s participation in Satan’s highway to hell and stopped transporting slaves. While their decision did not stop pirates from doing what they desired, the new law slowly concluded THIS chapter of nightmarish Irish misery.

But, if anyone, black or white, believes that slavery was only an African experience, then they’ve got it completely wrong.

Irish slavery is a subject worth remembering, not erasing from our memories.

But, where are our public (and PRIVATE) schools???? Where are the history books? Why is it so seldom discussed?

Do the memories of hundreds of thousands of Irish victims merit more than a mention from an unknown writer?

Or is their story to be one that their English pirates intended: To (unlike the African book) have the Irish story utterly and completely disappear as if it never happened.

None of the Irish victims ever made it back to their homeland to describe their ordeal. These are the lost slaves; the ones that time and biased history books conveniently forgot.


When I asked my grandchildren what they were taught about slavery, this is what I got: Slaves were blacks on white owned Southern American plantations. That's it !!!

I'd really like to HELP those like "dontlook,don'tknow", "lored", "alang1216".....Perhaps "alang" most, because most people, of a far-left view, seem hopelessly brainwashed beyond repair...But I detect some hope for some, who are embarrassed enough to try and make a rationale, or try and change subjects, when caught, trying to making EXCUSES, or minimizing the behavior and HISTORY, of scumm like Democrats Robert Byrd, Richard Russell, Claude Pepper, Hugo Black, ALL K.K.K MEMBERS O SYMPATHIZERS. (READ THEIR QUOTES BELOW)- Johnson, Sam ervin, etc., etc....dozens more..Some modern Libs are just sadly misinformed, throughout their lives, whether by Leftist teachers, or friends, peers they were afraid to challenge, etc...

 

Thanks, I appreciate any help I can get. If anyone believes I was defending Byrd they are wrong. I was trying to provide some context to his life.

 

I make no excuses for those who came before me but I've lived long enough to know that we can't judge people from another time or place by our values. I heard plenty of remarks growing up that were racist by todays standards but back then would have been considered acceptable. This was when everyone around me was a Democrat. My father included.

 

No doubt my great-grandchildren will regard us as Neanderthals for our attitude on gays or foreigners or children or chocolate or <fill in the blank>.

It was a more racist time pre-1950 and many groups were very tribal back then. You can't compare todays politicians to those of the pre-1950s era.

 

Besides the only true racist party is the Dixiecrat Party and they have almost no political traction in 2014.

THEY ARE NOT "from a Far Right wing news source", Lore.

They have been around since the 18oo's, and are in the Library of Congress. I could shame you more, if you persist...

 

Why don't we just AGREE, that the Democrat Party has been STEEPED IN RACISM, SINCE ITS INCEPTION, AND STILL HAS PEOPLE WHO WOULD VOTE FOR A DANGEROUS SOCIALIST, MERELY BECAUSE OF THE MELANIN CONTENT OF HIS SKIN, AND A "PRESIDENT" AND ATTY GENERAL WHO EXCUSE, AND SAYS, "I won't do dat to mah peoples", WHEN ASKED WHY HE REFUSED TO PROSECUTE BLACK PANTHERS THREATING 80-YR.-OLD WHITE LADIES ON ELECTION DAY, SCARING THEM AWAY FROM VOTING BOOTHS IN PHILADELPHIA.

Just READ your lovely Party Members, BELOW!

In his 2007 article, Bruce Bartlett reminded us of the racist history of the Democratic Party: “[Democrats] were openly and explicitly for slavery before the Civil War, supported lynching and “Jim Crow” laws after the war, and regularly defended segregation and white supremacy throughout most of the 20th century.”

Bartlett also provided a list of racist quotes from prominent Democrats:

 

“I am a former Kleagle [recruiter] of the Ku Klux Klan in Raleigh County. . . . The Klan is needed today as never before and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia. It is necessary that the order be promoted immediately and in every state in the union.”

President Truman’s civil rights program “is a farce and a sham–an effort to set up a police state in the guise of liberty. I am opposed to that program. I have voted against the so-called poll tax repeal bill. . .. I have voted against the so-called anti-lynching bill.”

–Rep. Lyndon B. Johnson (D., Texas), 1948 U.S. Senator, 1949-61

“This passport which you have given me is a symbol to me of the passport which you have given me before. I do not feel that it would be out of place to state to you here on this occasion that I know that without the support of the members of this organization I would not have been called, even by my enemies, the ‘Junior Senator from Alabama.’ “

–Hugo Black, accepting a life membership in the Ku Klux Klan upon his election to the U.S. Senate as a Democrat from Alabama, 1926 Appointed to the Supreme Court by Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1937

 

“You cannot go into a Dunkin’ Donuts or a 7-Eleven unless you have a slight Indian accent.”

“My state was a slave state. My state is a border state. My state has the eighth largest black population in the country. My state is anything [but] a Northeastern liberal state.”

“I mean, you got the first mainstream African American [barack Obama] who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice looking guy.”

“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.”

Sen. Joseph Biden Jr., (D., Del.), 2006-07 Chairman, Committee on the Judiciary, 1987-95 Chairman, Committee on Foreign Relations Candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, 2008

 

If blacks were given the right to vote, that would “place every splay-footed, bandy-shanked, hump-backed, thick-lipped, flat-nosed, woolly-headed, ebon-colored Negro in the country upon an equality with the poor white man.”

–Rep. Andrew Johnson, (D., Tenn.), 1844 President, 1865-69

 

Blacks “are inferior to the whites in the endowments of both of body and mind.”

–Thomas Jefferson, 1787 Co-founder of the Democratic Party (along with Andrew Jackson) President, 1801-09

 

“I hold that the present state of civilization, where two races of different origin, and distinguished by color, and other physical differences, as well as intellectual, are brought together, the relation now existing in the slaveholding states between the two, is, instead of an evil, a good–a positive good.”

–Sen. John C. Calhoun (D., S.C.), 1837 Vice President, 1825-32

–Platform of the Democratic Party, 1856

 

“I hold that a Negro is not and never ought to be a citizen of the United States. I hold that this government was made on the white basis; made by the white men, for the benefit of white men and their posterity forever, and should be administered by white men and none others.”

–Sen. Stephen A. Douglas (D., Ill.), 1858 Presidential nominee of the Democratic Party, 1860

“My fellow citizens, I have said that the contest before us was one for the restoration of our government; it is also one for the restoration of our race. It is to prevent the people of our race from being exiled from their homes–exiled from the government which they formed and created for themselves and for their children, and to prevent them from being driven out of the country or trodden under foot by an inferior and barbarous race.”

–Francis P. Blair Jr., accepting the Democratic nomination for Vice President, 1868 Democratic Senator from Missouri, 1869-72His statue stands in the U.S. Capitol.

“The Negro as a race, in all the ages of the world, has never shown sustained power of self-development. He is not endowed with the creative faculty. . . . He has never created for himself any civilization. . . . He has never had any civilization except that which has been inculcated by a superior race. And it is a lamentable fact that his civilization lasts only so long as he is in the hands of the white man who inculcates it. When left to himself he has universally gone back to the barbarism of the jungle.”

–Sen. James Vardaman (D., Miss.), 1914 Chairman, Committee on Natural Resources, 1913-19

 

“Slavery among the whites was an improvement over independence in Africa. The very progress that the blacks have made, when–and only when–brought into contact with the whites, ought to be a sufficient argument in support of white supremacy–it ought to be sufficient to convince even the blacks themselves.”

–William Jennings Bryan, 1923 Presidential nominee of the Democratic Party, 1896, 1900 and 1908 Appointed Secretary of State by Woodrow Wilson in 1913 His statue stands in the U.S. Capitol.

 

“Anyone who has traveled to the Far East knows that the mingling of Asiatic blood with European or American blood produces, in nine cases out of ten, the most unfortunate results. . . . The argument works both ways. I know a great many cultivated, highly educated and delightful Japanese. They have all told me that they would feel the same repugnance and objection to have thousands of Americans settle in Japan and intermarry with the Japanese as I would feel in having large numbers of Japanese coming over here and intermarry with the American population. In this question, then, of Japanese exclusion from the United States it is necessary only to advance the true reason–the undesirability of mixing the blood of the two peoples. . . . The Japanese people and the American people are both opposed to intermarriage of the two races–there can be no quarrel there.”

–Franklin D. Roosevelt, 1925 President, 1933-45

 

“Mr. President, the crime of lynching . . . is not of sufficient importance to justify this legislation.”

–Sen. Claude Pepper (D., Fla.), 1938 Spoken while engaged in a six-hour speech against the antilynching bill

 

“There is no warrant for the curious notion that Christianity favors the involuntary commingling of the races in social institutions. Although He knew both Jews and Samaritans and the relations existing between them, Christ did not advocate that courts or legislative bodies should compel them to mix socially against their will.”

–Sen. Sam Ervin (D., N.C.), 1955 Chairman, Committee on Government Operations, 1971-75

 

“The decline and fall of the Roman empire came after years of intermarriage with other races. Spain was toppled as a world power as a result of the amalgamation of the races. . . . Certainly history shows that nations composed of a mongrel race lose their strength and become weak, lazy and indifferent.”

–Herman E. Talmadge, 1955 Democratic Senator from Georgia, 1957-81

Chairman, Committee on Agriculture, 1971-81

 

“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. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference. For if we don’t move at all, then their allies will line up against us and there’ll be no way of stopping them, we’ll lose the filibuster and there’ll be no way of putting a brake on all sorts of wild legislation. It’ll be Reconstruction all over again.”

–Sen. Lyndon B. Johnson (D., Texas), 1957

 

“I have never seen very many white people who felt they were being imposed upon or being subjected to any second-class citizenship if they were directed to a waiting room or to any other public facility to wait or to eat with other white people. Only the Negroes, of all the races which are in this land,

publicly proclaim they are being mistreated, imposed upon, and declared second-class citizens because they must go to public facilities with members of their own race.”

–Sen. Richard B. Russell Jr. (D., Ga.), 1961 The Russell Senate Office Building is named for him.

 

“I did not lie awake at night worrying about the problems of Negroes.”

–Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, 1961 Kennedy later authorized wiretapping the phones and bugging the hotel rooms of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

 

“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. . . . I have nothing against a community that’s made up of people who are Polish or Czechoslovakian or French-Canadian or blacks who are trying to maintain the ethnic purity of their neighborhoods.”

–Jimmy Carter, 1976 President, 1977-81 Winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, 2002

 

“The Confederate Memorial has had a special place in my life for many years. . . . There were many, many times that I found myself drawn to this deeply inspiring memorial, to contemplate the sacrifices of others, several of whom were my ancestors, whose enormous suffering and collective gallantry are to this day still misunderstood by most Americans.”

–James Webb, 1990 Now a Democratic Senator from Virginia

 

“Everybody likes to go to Geneva. I used to do it for the Law of the Sea conferences and you’d find these potentates from down in Africa, you know, rather than eating each other, they’d just come up and get a good square meal in Geneva.”

–Sen. Ernest F. Hollings (D., S.C.) 1993 Chairman, Commerce Committee, 1987-95 and 2001-03 Candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, 1984

 

“I do not think it is an exaggeration at all to say to my friend from West Virginia [sen. Robert C. Byrd, a former Ku Klux Klan recruiter] that he would have been a great senator at any moment. . . . He would have been right during the great conflict of civil war in this nation.”

–Sen. Christopher Dodd (D., Conn.), 2004 Chairman, Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, 2008

 

“It has of late become the custom of the men of the South to speak with entire candor of the settled and deliberate policy of suppressing the negro vote. They have been forced to choose between a policy of manifest injustice toward the blacks and the horrors of negro rule. They chose to disfranchise the negroes. That was manifestly the lesser of two evils. . . . The Republican Party committed a great public crime when it gave the right of suffrage to the blacks. . . . So long as the Fifteenth Amendment stands, the menace of the rule of the blacks will impend, and the safeguards against it must be maintained.”

–Editorial, “The Political Future of the South,” New York Times, May 10, 1900

Racists were popular in both parties, but today they are 98% in the repub party.

Complete horse shit. Either support it with FACTS...

 

fact

fakt

noun

a thing that is indisputably the case.

or retract.

 

If you think that being a Democrat somehow means you're not a racist, you're just a line-toeing partisan hack with no ability to think for yourself.

 

I've never defended southern dems of the 50s. Heck, they're the tea party of today!

Again, support or retract. The platform of the 50's Dems was pretty much rooted in racism. The platform of the Tea Party doesn't have anything to do with race, period.

 

Lincoln is as far from today's repub as you could possibly be. Heck, Reagan would get laughed out of the primary. I doubt he could even run.

Disagree. Reagan was a big government guy, so he would fit right in with today's Republicans. In fact, he even agrees where the money should be spent: defense. That's all you hear from today's Republicans, is how they're doing it in the name of national security.

If anyone believes I was defending Byrd they are wrong. I was trying to provide some context to his life.

 

That's wonderful, except the context you supplied was a collection of lies spouted by Byrd when his past came to light and threatened to derail his political career.

No, as already demonstrated to you, they were made in private statements to individuals and never made public till much later in life.

 

It's amazing how far liberals will bend over to keep from accepting what should be obvious.

Lets look at today and not sixty years ago.

These goons have no choice but to go back over a half-century and make ludicrous implications that archaic ideologies of a bygone era are still relevant today. If they talk about todays political party standards, they'd either have to lie about theirs not being racist, or admit the ugly truth about themselves. And being the abject cowards that the right wingut minions are, well, it's pretty much a given what those goons will do.

Since huntfish declined to do so, perhaps you would like to be the one to provide some proof that Republicans are more racist than Democrats.

Republicans have most of it's racists at the bottom, Democrats have their racists at the top.

I would revise that.

“A few years ago, (Barack Obama) would have been washing my car”

‘light-skinned’ African American ‘with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.”

“Let me see one of you adopt one of those ugly black babies.”

“There’s no great, black bigot; there’s just about 200 million little black bigots out there."

“There’s black racist DNA running through the synapses of his or her brain tissue. They will kill their own kind, defend the enemies of their kind or anyone who is perceived to be the enemy "

“Black people shouldn’t be allowed to vote."

"all blacks r going to hell."

Anyone think these are racist statements?
