    History says that liberal were the racists. The left were the ones that preach anti-Semitism. The left are the ones that were pro-slavery. The left were the ones pro-segregation. It was the Democrat president Woodrow Wilson that said he understood the need for the KKK to protect victimized whites in the south. He re-segregated the federal government. He claimed segregation was a benefit to the colored people. People only write about Kennedy and Johnson brokering the civil rights bill but fail to mention it was the democrats in the senate that were creating the filibuster not the republicans. And it was actually Nixon that did more to desegregate the schools than any other president in history. No democrat supported the 15th amendment that allowed blacks to vote. It was the republicans that were anti-slavery. It was the Republican Abraham Lincoln that freed the slaves. So how is it exactly that the republicans get the accused of being racist?

    I ran into this very same issue on another thread. Unfortunately this just further shows how poor our current public education system really is. The quality of our schools are really heading to the bottom of the barrel when compared to other nations who are far superior with their "quality" of education. Unfortunately the liberal Democrats will continue to spread THAT lie, with respect to racism and slavery in America, because they are counting on their supporters to NOT educate themselves. It's all to better serve in the advancement of the Democrats political machine. It's sad really.

    Here is what I found, with respect to where the Democrats and Republicans stood on the issue of slavery:

    On July 17, 1862 "The Second Confiscation Act" passed the Republican Congress, with unanimous Democratic opposition, stating that slaves of the Confederacy "shall be forever free".

    And what is the recent history? What are you refering to? I'm looking for a real reason and not just because people say so. Actual facts.

    It's the new 'democratic reality'. Fucking idiots believe it... because racism is a political weapon, not a social issue any more. Sucks for the minorities, but it is deemed more important to win than to be truthful.

    Our media and schools were taken over and we've been fed lies for many years. Dems were and are racists.

    How do you spell J-O-U-R-N-O-L-I-S-T?
    They used to say never pick a fight with guys who buy their ink in 55 gallon drums. Not so true any more. What's the NYT's share price today? The Tribune co was in bankruptcy. Dan Rather, Mary Mapes, and CBS crashed and burned after September, 2004. In 1974 they overturned a sitting President instead.

    Where did you study the History of the United States? Are you a woeful troll or simply ignorant? Anyone who posts on a political message board and comments on American history ought to know that political parties evolve (or in the case of the GOP, devolve).
