The saddest thing about this, is that the TV has convinced MOST Americans that the USA is a "democracy" - and the fact that MORE THAN 51% still believe everything they hear on tv would be our demise...
Lots of people are falling for the 'racist republican' ad hominem projection on television news because we don't know enough to understand what most of these lengthy political words mean. You've been deceived from your high school American History books, to the fake news programs on TV.
Do YOU know what "democracy" REALLY means? What is the definition of a Constitutional Republic? Do you know what the phrases right wing or left wing really mean? Is it RIGHT of something definitive in the 'center'? Or is it just a word game to make it sound more familiar yet too difficult to understand?
So... Are T.E.A. Party Republicans Racist?
"The Republican Party abolished slavery under Abraham Lincoln, defeated the Slave Power, and gave blacks the vote during Reconstruction in the late 1860s"
"The Republican Party and a Republican President, Ulysses Grant, destroyed the KKK with their Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871."
Martin Luther King was a REPUBLICAN!
almost all blacks were in his days...
"In October 1960, when Martin Luther King, Jr. was arrested at a peaceful sit-in in Atlanta, Robert Kennedy telephoned the judge and helped secure King's release. Although King, Sr. had previously opposed Kennedy because he was a ROMAN Catholic, he expressed his appreciation for these calls and switched his support to Kennedy. At this time, King, Sr. had been a lifelong registered Republican, and had endorsed Republican Richard Nixon."
Early Progressive Democrats Were Racists!
"It was a racist PROGRESSIVE Democrat President, Woodrow Wilson, who premiered "Birth of a Nation" in the White House. That racist movie was based on a racist book written by one of Wilson’s racist friends from college. In 1915, the movie spawned the modern-day Klan, with its burning crosses and white sheets. Inspired by the movie, some Georgia Democrats revived the Klan. Soon, the Ku Klux Klan again became a powerful force within the Democratic Party. The KKK so dominated the 1924 Democratic Convention that Republicans, speaking truth to power, called it the Klanbake. In the 1930s, a Democrat President, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, appointed a Klansman, Senator Hugo Black (D-AL), to the U.S. Supreme Court."
"For a long time I felt that FDR had developed many thoughts and ideas that were his own to benefit this country, but he didn't. Most of his thoughts were carefully manufactured for him in advance by the Council on Foreign Relations - One World Money Group." — Curtis Dall, from his book "My Exploited Father-In-Law"
