2. Counting down to the Big Lie from Lefty; 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 ....

... Claiming that all those racist assholes are really all Republicans now.

That sad ass, phony excuse has been debunked more times then Joe Biden has lied to voters.

They also quietly overlook that Hillary's famed "Mentor" Rober KKK Byrd was a Grand Kleagle in the Klan, right up until a few months before his death in 2010.

So the whole; "Oh that was a long time ago and we got rid of all of those racists" is a huge Lefty lie.

17. ... and there it is the "BIG LIE" from the usual source

It probably just took them a day or two to find some kind soul to read the big words to them.

It's like Roger Rabbit, with "Shave and a Haircut ...."

They just can't stop themselves from regurgitating the party bumper sticker talking point lies, no matter how many times they are debunked and embarrassed by them. That stupid crap works at the DUmp where you can just ban anyone that disagrees with you in the slightest. But not so much here ... or in the real world where your Presidential Candidate can't keep his size 12's out of his mouth for 24 hours at a stretch.

The fact is that Bull Connor, Robert KKK Byrd, George Wallace and all those other White Robed racists standing in the schoolhouse doors and blowing up black churches with little girls inside were worn by proud Democrats.

Lefty Rule: Just rewrite history as needed to suit your latest narrative. But make sure you burn all those books with the truth in them while you're at it. Orwell really had these assholes pegged.

Lefty, when the subject of their Proud Racist history comes up and they can't help themselves ...

18. Explain to me how all those old-time racist Dems were NOT conservatives,

all the way back to the southern slaveholders. I'll wait.



They WERE the conservatives. The Republican party when first formed was a liberal-radical party, and not just on slavery...

I don't need to apologize for the past of the Democratic party, because I was not there, let alone the SOUTHERN Democratic party. If the party's race policies were the same today, I would certainly not be there now...

and if the Republican party were more like the Republican party of the 1860s, I would be with them now.

But neither thing is true.

19. "all those old-time racist Dems" Congratulations!!

The first Lefty here to acknowledge the truth.

The Dems were clearly racist ... and were still racist at least into the 70's.

Whether they still are remains to be seen. But having your pasty old white man candidate tell them that if they don't vote for him; "You ain't black", followed by a full blown apology tour, sure doesn't help.

Bobby Kennedy, as US Attorney General for his brother, was working with the FBI and investigating MLK to discredit him with the public. It included making shit up about King with the help of J. Edgar Hoover. (Kind of like making shit up about RUSSIA!)

Kennedy's support, and the FBI information he provided to the Chicago PD, set up the assassination of the Black Panther leadership in their beds in 1969.

LBJ referred out loud to his cabinet that his Great Society welfare reforms; "this will keep the n*****s voting Democrat for 100 years".

Robert Byrd claimed to give up his Klan affiliation but was still listed as an inactive member until his death in 2010.

You don't find it odd, that you party leadership talks to African Americans about things like welfare reform and criminal justice reform, instead of more and better jobs?

Or that they've been making the same promises for decades and never seem to deliver and always blame the Republicans for standing in the way, even when you hold the House, Senate and White House?

It's called pandering.

6. In 2016 David Duke was a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate

From 2016: "Former KKK Leader David Duke Qualifies for Louisiana US Senate Debate
Duke will debate the Democratic and GOP candidates on TV on Nov. 2"

Excerpt: "He has also ventured before into politics, serving one term as a Republican Louisiana state representative and running in the Democratic presidential primaries in 1988 and the Republican presidential primary contest in 1992. He has also run unsuccessfully for the U.S. Senate, the House of Representatives, the Louisiana governorship and the Louisiana State Senate.

In this campaign, Duke is running as a Republican and said he's focusing on immigration. "Unless immigration is stopped," he said, "the whole basis of America is changed. We will lose our rights. We'll lose our gun rights. We will lose a lot of our freedom."

4. The only time Democrat cops did any good was during the riots in Chicago in 1968,

where even though they were outnumbered and had to fend off several shit-and-piss-flinging violent attacks, some of them nearly losing their lives seeking to uphold civil order.

It's too bad more-recent Democrat bosses don't have the balls the late Richard Daley did.

Or stand up for their own police.

16. ".....beating up kids makes you a hero to Republicans/conservatives....."

Oh now Joe, the photographs of the thugs show few, if any, of them were puny teenaged 140-pound weakings not man enough to have to shave every day yet, throwing piss and shit at cops desperately trying to ensure safety and maintain ordeer.

For the most part, they appear to be in their mid- and late-twenties, and in great physical shape.

"Kids." Snort.

8. "Party Realignment And The New Deal"

Prior to the 1920s blacks voted better than 90% for Republicans, the party of Lincoln from when black jen got the right to vote in 1870 via the 15th amendment until Herbert Hoover.

"The realignment of black voters from the Republican Party to the Democratic Party that began in the late 1920s proliferated during this (The New Deal) era. This process involved a “push and pull”: the refusal by Republicans to pursue civil rights alienated many black voters, while efforts—shallow though they were—by northern Democrats to open opportunities for African Americans gave black voters reasons to switch parties.

The 1932 presidential contest between incumbent Republican President Herbert Hoover and Democrat Franklin D. Roosevelt was something of a turning point. During his first term, Hoover had tried to ingratiate himself with southern segregationists, and his administration had failed to implement economic policies to help African Americans laid low by the Great Depression. Still, Hoover received between two-thirds and three-quarters of the black vote in northern urban wards. Most black voters sided with Republicans less out of loyalty than because they were loath to support a candidate whose Democratic Party had zealously suppressed their political rights in the South. African Americans mistrusted FDR because of his party affiliation, his evasiveness about race in the campaign, and his choice of a running mate, House Speaker John Nance Garner of Texas.

As late as the mid-1930s, African American Republican John R. Lynch, who had represented Mississippi in the House during and after Reconstruction, summed up the sentiments of older black voters and upper middle-class professionals: “The colored voters cannot help but feel that in voting the Democratic ticket in national elections they will be voting to give their endorsement and their approval to every wrong of which they are victims, every right of which they are deprived, and every injustice of which they suffer.

Illinois’s First Congressional District provides a window into the process of black political realignment in northern cities. Prior to becoming solidly Democratic in 1934, the South Chicago district elected Republican Oscar De Priest in 1928, 1930, and 1932. Southern African Americans, who swelled the city’s population during that period giving it the second-largest urban black population in the country by 1930, encountered an established Republican machine that courted black voters and extended patronage jobs. The party offered these migrants an outlet for political participation that was unimaginable in the Jim Crow South. African Americans voted in droves for machine politicians like William Hale (Big Bill) Thompson, who regularly corralled at least 60 percent of the vote in the majority-black Second and Third Wards. Mayor Thompson and the machine promoted black politicians such as De Priest who, in 1915, became the city’s first African-American alderman, the equivalent of a city councilman. Black voters remained exceedingly loyal to the Republican ticket.

10. Which had more to do with the South becoming less racist

Republican inroads began in suburbs in the New South and states not part of the Deep South, like Virginia and Florida.
http://www.justfactsdaily.com/smearing-the-south-with-false-charges-of-racism/

Why blacks, or any other PoC, overwhelmingly support the DNC escapes me since the party takes them for granted and shits on them. Black families want school choice and mostly religious, Democrats are too busy taking bribes from teachers' unions.
