The Making of Racist Laws

  • The German Nuremberg Law in 1935 that defined their racism was inspired by the American Jim Crow laws. Our American laws of 1924 were these:

  1. Prohibiting interracial marriage
  2. Quotas for immigration based on race
  3. Segregation laws which separated whites and blacks in schools, hotels, drinking fountains, etc.
  4. Categories of citizenship: first class and second class
  5. A recognition of inferiority of certain races, like Jews and blacks, etc.

  • American law became a regular Nazi point of reference. The Nazis repeatedly turned to the American example. They looked favorably on the racism of the Democrats.
  •  Many blame all of America and not the Democrats or the Progressives or the Left. But it was the Progressives that passed the racist immigration law of 1924, and the Ku Klux Klan was a creation of the Democrats. As time went on we see the big lie, as racism is now blamed on Trump and the GOP.
  • As far as race laws go, it seems obvious that the Nazi race laws of the 1930’s were quite the same as the Democratic Party’s race laws.
  • Democrat racism prior to World War II was shocking. Democratic Senator Tillman and Senator Bibo repeatedly used the N word in talking about blacks. One time Bibo said, “White people will be justified in going to any extreme to keep the nigger from voting.”
  • In the early 1900’s many racist books were published by progressive Democrats. Here are a few titles: Charles Carroll’s The Negro a Beast; Robert Shufieldt’s The Negro: A Menace to American Civilization; Charles McCord’s The American Negro as a Dependent, Defective and Delinquent.
  • In the nineteenth century, Democrats denied that blacks were men—they denied their full humanity. Their defense went like this: all men are created equal, blacks are subhuman, therefore we are justified in enslaving them. This rational sounds much the same as with the Nazi treatment of the Jews; and it also sounds like what the abortion rights people would say regarding their justification to abort babies.
