Chuck on the right side
THIS IS A BLOG THAT TRIES TO APPEAL TO THE AVERAGE CONSERVATIVE CITIZEN AND HAS NO AGENDA OTHER THAN TELLING THE TRUTH AS WE SEE IT.
Whenever a negative happening occurs when race is involved, the Democrats immediately trot out the canard that it is the policies of the “evil” Republicans (Conservatives) that was the cause of that unfortunate event concerning race. So is what the Democrats (Liberals or Progressives) say based on fact, or are they trying to cover up their own sad history of racism?
Some people have labeled the Democrats the “4 S Party”, which stands for SLAVERY, SECESSION, SEGREGATION, and SOCIALISM. How have they been able to “hoodwink” a sizable portion of the electorate (mainly minorities) that they are the ones who champion the minorities in this country when real facts disprove that claim. It was the Democrat Party who championed slavery before the Civil War. It was the Democrat Party who voted to secede from the Union. It was the Democrat Party who promoted segregation that lasted until the middle of the 1960's. And, it was the Democrat Party who have championed the economic theory of socialism, up until this present day.
If it wasn't for the Republican Party, the 13th , 14th , and 15th Amendments to the Constitution wouldn't have been passed after theCivil War. If it wasn't for the Republicans, Brown vs. Board of Education wouldn't have come about making separate but equal schools illegal. The Democrats were the ones who stood in the doorways preventing access to black students. And, the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act of 1964 and 1965 were passed mainly by the efforts of the Republicans whose members voted (80%) to pass these laws. Only 60% of the Democrats voted for these laws.
In fact, it was the Democrats who tried to filibuster those acts in the U.S. Senate, led by the “lions” of the Democrat Party, like William Fulbright, Al Gore Sr., and Robert Byrd (a former KKK leader). You may wonder why, with that record of opposition to civil rights, most minorities still overwhelmingly vote for Democrats? It sort of boggles the rational mind. You could say that the modern day Democrats are the new “plantation owners” by making minorities dependent for their survival, wrongfully so, based on voting for Democrats to keep the “freebies” from the federal treasury coming. You could say that the minorities are voting against their own self- interest.
Lt.Col. Allen West, a prominent black leader and former Congressman, said the following, trying to explain the dichotomy of the hypocrisy of the Democrat party as they oppose “education choice” in the form of charter or voucher schools. Here's what he said, “Once upon a time, the Democrat Party stood outside the doors of higher education institutions denying access to blacks. Today's Democrat Party embraces policies that trap young blacks inside doors of failing public schools denying them access to better quality institutions of learning”. It seems that former President Obama was O.K. with sending his daughters to the prestigious private Sidwell
Friends School, but he was against minority students in Wash. D.C. getting vouchers to use in better performing private and parochial schools, and, ironically, he lived in the White House ( which was public housing, ouch!).
So who really are the racists in our society? Could it be the sanctimonious Democrats? You make the call.
