The Democrat Party VS the Republican Party: Who is the True Champion of the Ending Slavery, the Civil Rights Movement, and the Black Community

Kuuleme T. Stephens

I found this article written in 2008 and I just had to feature it here! It is some interesting reading, and I do encourage others to do research and look for themselves!!! I was “born” into the Democrat Party, most of my family members are Democrats! It was not until later on (after I joined the military, and was out on my own in the real world) that I began to hear things about the Republican Party and began to research who was actually for the Black Community , Ending Slavery, and the Civil Rights Movement and who was not. I think it is very important that people expose themselves to and know accurate history, not just the stuff that you have been spoon fed from the Left, other family members, and friends. If people would educate themselves, this Country wouldn’t be going down the drain so fast! I hope you enjoy the article and please share this with any and every Liberal friend (Black, White or Any Race) that you may have, so they might have a chance to  learn accurate history and educate themselves as well! 

The KKK was the terrorist wing of the Democrat Party.May 15, 2008 at 1:01 pm | Posted in Democrat Party, K.K.K  |  18 Comments

Our nation’s top historians reveal that the Democratic Party gave us the Ku Klux Klan, Black Codes, Jim Crow Laws and other repressive legislation which resulted in the multitude of murders, lynchings, mutilations, and intimidations (of thousands of black and white Republicans). On the issue of slavery: historians say the Democrats gave their lives to expand it, the Republicans gave their lives to ban it.

The  Democrats:
  • Democrats fought to expand slavery  while Republicans fought to end it.
  • Democrats passed those  discriminatory Black Codes and Jim Crow laws.
  • Democrats supported and passed the  Missouri Compromise to protect slavery.
  • Democrats supported and passed the  Kansas Nebraska Act to expand slavery.

  • Democrat Senator Robert Byrd of West  Virginia, personally filibustered the Civil  Rights Act of 1964 for 14 straight hours to keep it from  passage.
  • Democrats passed the Repeal Act of 1894 that overturned civil right laws enacted by  Republicans.

  • Democrats supported and backed Judge  John Ferguson in the case of Plessy v Ferguson.
  • Democrats supported the School Board of  Topeka Kansas in the case of Brown v The Board of Education of Topeka  Kansas.
  • Democrat public safety commissioner Eugene “Bull” Connor, in Birmingham, Ala., unleashed vicious dogs and turned fire hoses on black civil rights demonstrators.
  • Democrats were who Dr. Martin  Luther King, Jr. and the other protesters were  fighting.
  • Democrat Georgia Governor Lester Maddox  “brandished an ax hammer to prevent blacks from patronizing his restaurant.
  • Democrat Governor George Wallace stood  in front of the Alabama schoolhouse in 1963, declaring there would be  segregation forever.
  • Democrat Arkansas Governor Faubus tried  to prevent desegregation of Little Rock public schools.
  • Democrat Senator John F. Kennedy voted against the 1957 Civil rights  Act.
  • Democrat President John F.  Kennedy opposed the 1963 March on Washington by Dr.  King.
  • Democrat President John F. Kennedy, had Dr.  King wiretapped and investigated by the  FBI.
  • Democrat President Bill Clinton’s mentor was U.S. Senator J. William Fulbright, an Arkansas Democrat and a supporter of racial segregation.
  • Democrat President Bill Clinton interned for J. William  Fulbright in  1966-67.
  • Democrat Senator J. William Fulbright signed the Southern Manifesto opposing the Supreme Court’s 1954 Brown vs. Board of Education decision.
  • Democrat Senator J. William Fulbright joined with the  Dixiecrats in filibustering the Civil Rights Acts of 1957 and 1964.
  • Democrat Senator J. William Fulbright voted  against the 1965 Voting Rights  Act.
  • Southern Democrats opposed desegregation  and integration.

Democrats opposed:

  1. The Emancipation  Proclamation
  2. The  13th Amendment
  3. The  14th Amendment
  4. The  15th Amendment
  5. The Reconstruction Act of  1867
  6. The Civil Rights of  1866

  11. The Freeman  Bureau
  12. The Civil Rights  Act of 1957
  13. The Civil Rights  Act of 1960
  14. The  United State Civil Rights Commission

Republicans gave strong bi-partisan support and sponsorship for the  following legislation:

The Republicans:
  • Republicans enacted civil rights laws in the 1950’s and 1960’s, over  the objection of Democrats.
  • Republicans founded the HBCU’s (Historical Black College’s and Universities) and started the NAACP to counter the racist practices of the Democrats.
  • Republicans pushed through much of the ground-breaking civil rights  legislation in Congress.
  • Republicans fought slavery and amended the Constitution to grant blacks  freedom, citizenship and the right to vote.
  • Republicans pushed through much of the groundbreaking civil rights  legislation from the 1860s through the 1960s.
  • Republican President Dwight Eisenhower sent troops into the South to  desegregate the schools.
  • Republican President Eisenhower appointed Chief Justice Earl Warren to the Supreme Court, which resulted in the 1954 Brown vs. Board of Education decision.
  • Republican Senator Everett Dirksen from Illinois, not Democrat President Lyndon Johnson, was the one who pushed through the civil rights laws of the 1960’s.
  • Republican Senator Everett Dirksen from Illinois wrote the language for the 1965 Voting Rights Act.
  • Republican Senator Everett Dirksen from Illinois also crafted the language for the Civil Rights Act of 1968 which  prohibited discrimination in housing.
  • Republican and black  American,  A. Phillip Randolph, organized the 1963 March by Dr. King on  Washington.

The 1964 Civil  Rights Act Roll Call Vote: In the House, only 64 percent of the Democrats (153  yes, 91  no),  but 80 percent of the Republicans  (136  yes, 35  no),  voted for it. In the Senate, while only 68 percent of the Democrats endorsed the  bill  (46  yes, 21  no),  82 percent of the Republicans voted to enact it  (27  yes, 6  no).

Thaddeus Stevens, a Radical Republican that introduced legislation to give African-Americans the so-called 40 acres and a mule and Democrats overwhelmingly voted against the bill.

During the Senate debates on the Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871, it was revealed that members of the Democratic Party formed many terrorist organizations like the Ku Klux Klan to murder and intimidate African-Americans voters. The Ku Klux Klan Act was a bill introduced by a Republican Congress to stop Klan Activities.

History reveals that Democrats lynched, burned, mutilated and murdered thousands of blacks and completely destroyed entire towns and communities occupied by middle class Blacks, including Rosewood, Florida, the Greenwood District in Tulsa Oklahoma, and Wilmington, North Carolina to name a few.

History reveals that it was Abolitionists and Radical Republicans such as Henry L. Morehouse and General Oliver Howard that started many of the traditional Black colleges, while Democrats fought to keep them closed. Many of our traditional Black colleges are named after white Republicans.

After exclusively giving the Democrats their votes for the past 25 years, the average African-American cannot point to one piece of civil rights legislation sponsored solely by the Democratic Party that was specifically designed to eradicate the unique problems that African-Americans face today. As of 2004, the Democrat Party (the oldest political party in America) has never elected a black man to the United States Senate, the Republicans have elected three.

*** Update***

Since the writing of the article back in 2008, the numbers of Black Americans in our House and Senate are as follows:

During the Reconstruction Era(1863-1877)

  1. 22 Republicans in the House of Representatives
  2. 2 Republicans in the Senate
  3. 0 Democrats in the House of Representatives
  4. 0 Democrats in the Senate

During the Modern Era(1877-present)

  1. 5 Republicans in the House of Representatives
  2. 1 Republican in the Senate
  3. 99 Democrats in the House of Representatives
  4. 3 Democrats in the Senate
  5. 1 Independent in the House of Representatives

As you can see, the party that the Blacks started off in was indeed the Republican Party. It was only after the Reconstruction Era ended and the Modern Era was issued in that the Black Community flocked to the Dixiecrat (Democrat) Party. Why did this change over occur for the Black Community to go from being Republicans to Democrats???? There is all kinds of speculation on that! My belief (which may not be yours) is that the Democrat Party and the Klan saw that they had to do something. It was essentially a power-grab that they intended to win. They were loosing power fast and they didn’t want to lose all of their power. Knowing that the majority of Blacks were still fairly uneducated (especially when it came to politics), they did the only thing they could do! They ripped off their sheets, introduced the words “help” and “free” into the picture, and off and running was the Democrat Party for the Black Community. The Democrat Party only saw the Black Community as a bunch of  “useful idiots” and their ticket to power!!!! Think about it……………

  1. Thanks my friend.. brother Vet… I often need the actual names and dates, when some obnoxious family democrat tells me, I’m racist just for being a republican.. when I knew their history was wrong.. I’m old enough to remember that the GOP was heavily involved in Civil Rights…

    The break partly came over affirmation action.. the GOP favored helping people based on their income.. not the color of their skin.. which would have benefited by black and white poor Americans..

    The dems demagogued that into.. the GOP hates you, and it’s BECAUSE you’re black.. that we opposed AA on principle and wanted a merit based system.. that part democrats left out. It would have unified Americans to help those who needed it most.. and not on the opposite of Dr. King’s dream.. of a color blind society, where the content of your character mattered most..

    I wish we could reach more black Americans.. that the MSM/democrat media instantly viciously attack any black republicans for being traitors to their race, really doesn’t help.

    Thanks my friend.. best wishes to you and your family in these tough times.

  2. Hello, Great information. I knew this much already. I also know that both parties have changed much over the years. So, I believe now that it is not so much who is red or who is blue, it is about who supports civil rights and what is behind their thinking and beliefs. A blue might think civil rights means, continuing the leveling of the playing field- because lets face it- the game (western economy) was created by the decedents of imperialists.
    To become “successful” in the world of finance we need cheap resources and cheap labor. Both were found in America. So a “democrat” may have killed or displaced a Native American to gain resources but he did so with a mentality that is fostered in his “manifested right by god”, which again roots in imperialism. Then, to maximize profits, he enslaves people to create produce his product. It is not so much his party affiliation but his mentality that I recognize. Fast forward, slavery was abolished and Native Americans became “citizens” of their own country in 1934 (weren’t able to vote till much later). Now these populations are declared “free” and able to join “civilization” just like any other red blooded American.- So long as you play by our rules, and assimilate into our culture.. I will offer no assistance to help you catch up with us because that will make you co-dependent on “our” charity… You pull your boots on just like we do and go to work. Oh yea, you can have success so long as you do not become “upitty” or I will ridicule and lambast you the entire way- Because I’m still racist. You keep your place, and stay in your class. Do not try to nudge into what my family has created and maintained over centuries. In the meantime I make little to no effort to learn about you, or your culture.
    The economic “system” was created by my ancestors, and is run and operated by their descendents-. Today, just like before, big profit requires cheap resources and cheap labor. We tend to be dedicated to big profit. Where do we find cheap labor and resources now? Resources: In places like central America, and Africa where indigenous people do not have the power to protect their land. The leaders of those countries have been fleeced $$ by our corporations so much that they let those corporations come in at will. They use their U.S. funded armies to defend these resources from indigenous “terrorists”. Cheap labor: China. They work for a pittance and are most likely still impoverished.

    So today, I observe mentality and thinking more than anything. An every day republican would be very offended to be called a racist. In fact they would even say democratic policies only keep minorities “dependent” on the system, which is a form of racism. But what is not realized is that the system was most likely created by their ancestors. The institution of “success” was created by their ancestors. Sure, everyone has the inalienable right to be successful. People of all colors and race do.
    So maybe today we say the “institution” of success may not be racist, but it is definitely a classist one. The “haves” have what they do today because they tend to be the descendants of “havers”, they have more safety nets. For generations they have been taught how to succeed and gain an upper hand because someone in their family has “succeeded” before. They tend to have more family role models. And those who have found success, but did not have the above mentioned resources, did so in a more difficult way. You hear stories of how they were against so many odds. What were those odds?
    The “have-nots” tend to be from multiple generations of have-nots. They tend not to have the safety nets, nor many role models of success. They tend to be the descendents of people who were historically subjugated and oppressed through outright racism.

    Do the research yourself. Look at who our poorest populations are. What do they physically look like? Are they this way because they have dependent mentalities, and a weaker will? Are they a lessor people?
    I agree, some may just need to be taught how to “pull up their bootstraps and get to work”. But many need to properly address the historical trauma that has been passed down by their ancestors. Address the trauma and violence that exist in high numbers in their communities, AND TO ACTUALLY BE GIVEN AN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY through laws and requirements rather than being told “your equal now good luck”.

    I live on a Native American reservation. I am a Native American descendent. There are also a lot of white people who live on this reservation. Some are great openhearted and open minded people. Some are racist mother fuckers. They may call me ignorant because I say they are racist. Because they say they see all people as equal. But in the meantime they ignore Native American and U.S. Gov treaties and do what they will on Indian land. They log and hunt our land even though the treaty states they cannot. They feel since the tribes are “given” money and they have “free healthcare” (all agreements written in our treaty years ago), that we are freeloaders of our “my tax payer money”. They feel like the land they took was not enough- they need more. So the Indian reservation, which is now a little tiny speck on the map, is too much for us to have for ourselves. They believe that the Indian should be assimilated into “mainstream” ways, but not for them to learn and value our culture. They judge how we live and make no effort to learn about our culture- and have their social workers take our children. They suffer a cultural narcissism where they view other cultures through the filters of their own first,- and then they make a judgement (usually bad) about the other culture. They believe that everything is hunky dory as long as you eventually believe and follow “our ways” of mainstream.

    These people, for the most part, are republican, they are our flag waving tea partiers who feel like they owe nothing to society to help right the wrongs, and to help people who really need it. They declare racism “over” because they say it is. They have little regard for legislated civil rights (even legislated rights that may have been passed by their republican ancestors). They declare everyone has an opportunity to become filthy rich, just like everyone else- simply because they declare it. Yet their is filth in filthy rich. Most likely somebody’s back was walked on to get there.

    Sure, I do not want to foster a perpetually dependent people, but I will only not support this when every one begins as an equal first. When the playing field becomes equal for everyone. And it does not become equal by just saying it is equal. Because a certain population has had a bit of an advantage in the first place on this path to “success”. Some people just need help and charity from our good hearts does not seem to be enough.

  3. My apologies for the many spelling errors.

  4. What a material of un-ambiguity and preserveness of precious know-how on the
    topic of unpredicted feelings.

  5. Thank you so much for this information!!! With all of the false lies and mis-construed American History, I find it difficult in finding accurate information to the political based trash. The information on this site has actual (MEAT) to follow up on, in the case of doubters. Today we have a disease of political blindness, mostly I have detected from the Democratic based mindset. Facts given to a democrat is usually followed up with “Political Propaganda” I would love that one day someone, without agenda, develop a site with basic facts and followup * let cards fall as they would, “In Truth!”

    I do have my own conclusion to how Republicans have taken the “Racist Rap” During the 60’s The Republicans desperately sought for Black equality. My Grandfather, Evangelist Rev Roy Joner was a Republican on the front line of giving equal rights to blacks. I believe with the strong support of Christian Republican Bible belt along with people like MLK the democrats feared they were about to loose control of the Political Democrat Government and needed to come up with a new plan.

    I find it so clear the democrat party could find a new way to enslave Black Americans by spoon feeding the black community, sending the message that the Democrat government understood blacks could not be as smart or become as accomplished as Whites. Democrats knew if they could keep blacks impoverished in all areas of mind, social, and financial they would have power over them 2 fold. #1. Turning the Republican party into the “Racist Group” since the Republicans, knew, blacks could do anything as good as whites. #2. Blacks would continued to be enslaved in poverty keeping them dependent on the Government and blinded to truth.

    The Democrats Ace Card was the word “Racist” This word that once had “Meat” and deep meaning to what blacks had endured would be increasingly used, by democrats, to include meaning (Far outside) the description of its meaning. Democrats would use it for everything from disarming a debate, or discussion. Be means for frivolous lawsuits and income, and win the hearts of those who do not want to be accused of any type of hate.

    Today we see Republican Rallies and conventions with Democrats Beating, intimidating, robbing Republicans as they try to support the party they believe in. Where as, Democrat Protesters are simply escorted out peacefully. I find the hypocrisy Astounding! The future of America I find extremely frightening. I know there is another way to coming to an understanding yet ego is winning this war.
