    Few things annoy me more than when people who want to stick a thumb in the eye of Democrats resort to tactics such as pointing out they founded the Ku Klux Klan or pushed through Jim Crow laws following the Civil War. The intent seems to be to draw attention away from the party that harbors the racists of today by shaming the Democrats for the sins of our forefathers.

    It’s a sleazy tactic that doesn’t work, and It is time to set the record straight. First of all, Democrats- for the most part- do not deny or try to hide the parties past. Second, I will show how, when and why the racists fled from the Democratic Party and found a new home and lastly, I will present evidence that shows how, during the civil rights era, support for civil right legislation was split, not by party affiliation but by regional loyalty-specifically the old Confederacy and the Union. Let’s begin by talking about the civil war era

    https://classroom.synonym.com/civil-warera-political-parties-north-vs-south-8901.html



    The truth about Republicans and civil rights even then was not as clear cut as some would like us to believe:

    Republicans and Democrats after the Civil War

    It’s true that many of the first Ku Klux Klan members were Democrats. It’s also true that the early Democratic Party opposed civil rights. But there’s more to it.



    As for the democrats
    Then things began to change


    Get that? Support for civil rights was along geographic, not party lines. Now we get to the meat of the matter:


    The divide between the north and the south vs the Democrats and the Republicans can be easily illustrated:



    In conclusion, maligning the entire Democratic Party as the historical racist party without regard to regional loyalties or the fact that the racists fled from the Democrats ranks in the 60’s is just dumbed down revisionist history, and patently dishonest. I have to wonder, which party will be remembered as the party of racists in another 150 years or so. Any guesses?

    This is about as far as I got is that wall of bs.


    Your premise, includes the very self serving assumption that the GOP is the "party that harbors the racist of today".


    In doing that, you are, ironically making a far worse smear against modern republicans than the smear you are complaining about, where they smear your distance, ideological ancestors.


    Not to mention, that what they say is actually true, while you are spewing vile lies, and you know it.

    The one Obama policy I would have used like a son of a bitch is his changes to HUD policies regarding low income housing. I would be shipping them into every lib wealth enclave by the planeload, Hamptons, Big buck LA neighborhoods ....Hillys neighborhood,,,,,and when they complained I'd be right their to throw their racist spiel right back at em..........HATERS....you must be HATERS.......

    The social conservatives in America since the beginning have been overwhelmingly the racists.
