The leftist progressive media is doing everything it can to reshape the narrative when it comes to Donald Trump. I believe we clearly understand that regardless of what Trump says, the liberal progressive media is going to try and define his words to their advantage. However, the left just stepped into something that needs to be clarified — actually shoved up their “fourth point of contact.” It appears the left is taking umbrage with Trump referring to Hillary Clinton as a “bigot.”
“The Democratic Party has failed and betrayed the African-American community,” Trump declared. “The Democratic Party has taken the votes of African-Americans for granted. They’ve just assumed they’ll get your support and done nothing in return for it. They’ve taken advantage of the African-American citizen,” he added. “It’s time to give the Democrats some competition for these votes.”
It’s time for a history lesson about the Democrat Party and its relationship with the black community in America. It’s not just that Hillary Clinton individually is a bigot, it’s that the Democrat Party has ALWAYS embraced bigotry towards American blacks. There have been times when it was overt; now it’s just covert and better propagandized.
Let’s start with a simple comparison. The Republican Party was created based on a single issue, the abolition of slavery. The Democrat Party stood for slavery and the whole three-fifths compromise was to appease southern Democrats in order to preserve the Union. That ended up leading us into a divisive period we know as the Civil War. And true, at the onset, Abraham Lincoln didn’t want to make the conflagration about slavery in order to placate southern Democrats…but the issue became front and center.
It was Lincoln who, after the Battle of Antietam, issued the Emancipation Proclamation, and it was the Republicans who fought for and ended up achieving the 13th Amendment, ending slavery. The Democrats opposed them at every turn. Subsequently came the 14th and 15th Amendments, but as we approached the turn of the century, the Democrats won over the House and Senate. The Democrats had supported the creation of the Ku Klux Klan. The Democrats ushered in the Jim Crow laws and they were the ones who supported lynchings. Democrat president Woodrow Wilson even had a screening of the film “Birth of a Nation” in the White House, and did little to nothing to stem the tide of lynchings.
It was the Democrats who ushered in the voter intimidation tactics of literacy tests and poll taxes. Yes, Eleanor Roosevelt pushed for the first black fighter pilots, the Tuskegee Airmen, albeit based on pressure from Mary McLeod Bethune.
And yes, integration of our Armed Forces came by way of President Harry Truman, which is why his picture hangs in my home. However, this angered the Democrat Party, and he lost reelection due to a lack of support. It was Republican President Dwight David Eisenhower who federalized the National Guard to enforce the Brown vs The Board of Education decision. He also sought to reinstate much of the Civil Rights legislation the Democrat Party had rolled back. Sadly, it was a difficult haul, since he didn’t have the control of the House and Senate.
The black community was firmly Republican up until the time Richard Nixon refused to offer support to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. while imprisoned. Nixon feared upsetting southern whites, and word got out that John F. Kennedy had contacted Mrs. King…true or not.
Therefore, from that point on three pictures hung in every black home: Jesus, Martin Luther King Jr., and John F. Kennedy. Trust me, they were in our living room on Kennesaw Avenue in Atlanta. However, the Democrats get credit for passing the 1964 Civil Rights Act when truth be told, it would not have passed without the support of Senate Republicans led by Everett Dirksen. He stood in opposition to Al Gore Sr. and KKK Grand Wizard Robert Byrd — whom Bill Clinton praised at his funeral/memorial service.
It was a Democrat president who began the destruction of the black family with a specific policy of his Great Society — the government giving checks to lower income women who have children out of wedlock, as long as they don’t have a man in the home. It was a Democrat Senator, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, who spoke out against that policy, and he was denigrated by the Democrat Party.
Back in the early ‘60s the two-parent household in the black community stood at 75 to 77 percent. Today it is 24 percent. It was Democrat President Johnson who made a very disturbing and disparaging comment aboard Air Force one about how the passage of the civil rights act would have — well, the last time we told you, Marky Zuckerberg got upset and kicked us off Facebook for 48 hours. You can find out that quote on your own. Hint: there’s a word in there that starts with “n.”
Since Roe v. Wade some 13 to 15 million black babies have been aborted, and you hardly heard a peep from the liberal progressive media about the case of one Kermit Gosnell.
It is Hillary Clinton who praises Planned Parenthood and its founder, Margaret Sanger, for whom she received an award under her name. Just peruse some of Sanger’s statement and you can easily ascertain her real objective in creating Planned Parenthood.
The history of the Democrat Party in America has been about slavery, secession, segregation, and now socialism. And none of that has been beneficial to the black community.
Today the Democrat Party uses its socialist principle of wealth redistribution to expand the welfare nanny-state of victims and dependency. It has become the messenger of the theme called the “soft bigotry of low expectations.” That’s why the Democrat Party cannot stomach successful black conservatives because we counter their insidious bigotry based propaganda. And worse are the “gatekeeper” and modern 21st century economic plantation overseers who keep blacks downtrodden, resulting in Detroit, Chicago, Milwaukee, Baltimore, Washington DC, Philadelphia — you got my point.
The esteemed black educator Booker T. Washington was viciously attacked by white liberal progressives. They even turned his former friend, W.E.B. DuBois, against him — a tactic seen today. Washington famously stated, “There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.” That explains why Rev. Al Sharpton, a tax cheat, gets to visit the White House nearly 100 times.
So to the deceptive and despicable liberal progressive media, shut the hell up!
Donald Trump is right, it’s not just Hillary Clinton who is a bigot and a pandering liar, it is and has been the entire Democrat Party. The sad fact is that NO previous Republican presidential candidate has had the resolve and intestinal fortitude to call y’all out.
We finally got one, and it angers you to no end. The Democrat Party has NEVER sought the best for the black community, and to this day you continue to pour your deceptive honey into the ears of those who mindlessly follow you to their own demise.
Black Lives Matter is funded by a disgusting white progressive socialist named George Soros who wants only one thing…keep the colored folks on the new Democrat plantation so we can harvest the new crop, their vote.
As reported by Politico, “Donald Trump made a new and explicit plea for the support of black voters on Tuesday, saying the Democratic Party had “failed and betrayed” them and accusing Hillary Clinton of “bigotry” in the pursuit of minority voters. “We reject the bigotry of Hillary Clinton which panders to and talks down to communities of color and sees them only as votes — that’s all they care about — not as individual human beings worthy of a better future,” Trump said at a rally in Wisconsin.
After Republican Party leaders have urged Trump for months to rein in unpredictable tangents on the stump that have gotten him in repeated political trouble, Trump used a teleprompter at a campaign rally for the first time on Tuesday to deliver a speech that waded into the thorny topics of race and politics.
