How African Americans were Lured into the Democratic Party

After the Civil War almost all blacks became Republicans—the party of Lincoln. So what happened along the way?

Why are they now almost all Democrats? 

And why did Democrats go from demonizing blacks to loving them?

Why did the Democrats go from the party of racism to the party of civil rights?

How can Democrats deny their racism? That they brought in the Ku Klux Klan? That it was the Dems that were the slave owners and the Big Bosses of the slave plantations?

I suppose most Democrats will say that they have changed. Really?

What Happened?

Okay, let’s talk about what really happened. After the Civil War most blacks became Republicans. But they were greatly demonized and abused for it by the Democrat party. And Woodrow Wilson really put a scare into them through the Ku Klux Klan. That scared some of them to vote Democrat.

Then under FDR with his New Deal many more blacks went to the Democrat side. Later, under LBJ many more turned Democratic. Why? What happened?

Many have said that LBJ was suddenly converted; that he was changed from his crude racism to being a nice guy and loving blacks—because of his Civil Rights Act. But that’s not true at all. He was always the same. His Civil Rights Act was all part of a strategy to get the black vote.

Who Was LBJ?

  • He was nasty, a bully, crude, selfish, sexually abusive, a pervert and full of infidelities that he liked to boast about.
  • He liked to lord it over people.
  • He was a typical Democratic “plantation boss.”
  • He commonly used the terms “nigger” and “uppity nigger.”
  • LBJ never changed (got better). He was always the same crude racist.
  • He especially talked crude to the black people that worked for a him as a way of intimidating and lording over them (I could give you some examples, but I won’t).

LBJ’s plan to get blacks into the Democrat party and vote Democrat

During the 50s and 60s, mainly because of the overthrow of Hitler, racism was declining fast all over the country, especially in the south. Many were voting for the first time. These things were a big problem for the Democrats, and LBJ watched in horror. Why? Because white supremacy had been the central political doctrine in the Democratic party for a century.

What would LBJ do to make blacks come into the Democratic party and vote Democratic?

  1. LBJ saw a way to exploit the insecurities and fears of the black man. After the Civil War when the slaves were emancipated, most of them were quite fearful and insecure. Most slaves had been born slaves and that’s all they knew. They were, you might say, institutionalized as slaves. Many of them looked back at slavery, and thought those days were better than being free. Why? Because, even though they were abused, they were always housed and fed and clothed and told what to do. And so, freedom for them was something new and they were afraid of it. So LBJ gave them the Great Society.
  2. What did the Great Society do for them? It made it so that they didn’t have to work. They got a regular welfare check, just enough to survive on. This government money was their new plantation, where the government cared for them. They would look to the government as a new type of plantation Big House. All they had to do was vote Democrat. And if they couldn’t get to the polling place, the democrats would bus them.
  3. LBJ pushed the Civil Rights Act. He did it not because he had changed. It was all to get the black vote. This strategy was revealed one day in what LBJ told two governors in regard to the Civil Rights Act: He said, “I’ll have them niggers voting Democratic for two hundred years.”
  4. He pushed the Voting Rights Act. For the same reason as above.

Conclusion

Blacks didn’t leave the Republican Party because of any ideas of White Supremacy of the Republicans. That wasn’t even true. They left because of the welfare checks they would get. They wanted to be taken care of. In other words, FDR and LBJ exploited their fears and lured them in,.

Donald Trump has made some impact on the blacks, to get them off the Democrat welfare system.

  • To get them working for themselves
  • To encouraged them to get a job
  • To be free of slavery in the Democratic slave plantation

Trump at his rally’s kept saying to the blacks, “What have you got to lose?”

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.

Exposing the Roots of Fascism and Racism in America

I think there is no better source than Dinesh D’Souza’s books to lay out the history of racism and Fascism, and to expose its roots. In this blog I am picking out a few quotes from his book The Big Lie, which I just finished reading. In these first quotes he really hits the Democrat Party hard, and we will also see them blaming their racism and fascism of the right wing—incredible!

  • Robert Paxton stated in his, The Anatomy of Fascism: “It may be that the earliest phenomenon that can be functionally related to fascism is American: the Ku Klux Klan.” D’Souza writes that the Klan was the domestic terrorist arm of the Democratic Party.
  • The racism of the Democratic Party in America not only preceded the racism of the Nazis, it lasted for longer—more than a century compared to the twelve years of Nazi rule in Germany.
  • The Democratic Party’s racism after the Civil War was preceded by the Democratic Party’s defense of slavery and its support of policies for the relocation and extermination of American Indians. What term other than genocide can we use to describe Democratic President Andrew Jackson’s mass relocation of the Indians?
  • D’Souza compares the Nazi camps to the slave plantations. He states, “What is the slave plantation if not a special type of concentration camp?” He writes that both were work camps, both were forced labor, both were treated harshly with little regard for the lives of the workers, and in both cases the workers were considered inferior and even subhuman. And who were the bosses? Nazis and Democrats!
  • D’Souza writes, “Margaret Sanger and her fellow progressive eugenicists didn’t get their ideas for killing off undesirables—or preventing their births—from the Nazis; the Nazis got them from their American counterparts who dominated the field of international eugenics.”
  • Woodrow Wilson was a racist who was almost single-handedly responsible for the revival of the Ku Klux Klan… According to historian, Robert Paxton, the Klan is the closest American precursor to a Nazi movement.
  • FDR came after Wilson, and he was a racist too. Hitler saw FDR as a kindred spirit and his New Deal was widely praised as an American form of fascism in the Nazi Party’s official newspaper.

After World War II the progressive Left started blaming their own atrocities on the Right. D’Souza writes,

  • After World War II, the progressives [of the Left] recognized how crushing it would be if Americans knew about the actual record of progressivism and the Democrat Party…So progressives decided to tell a new story…Left-wing phenomena now got moved into the right-wing column. Suddenly Mussolini and Hitler became ‘right-wingers,’ and the people who supposedly brought them to power became ‘conservatives. The Left, then, became the glorious resisters of fascism and Nazism.

Lies about Racism, Fascism, and Nazism – from “The Big Lie”

I am continuing to share with you my reading notes from Dinesh D’Souza’s book, the Big Lie. Click here to see the previous post on this subject.

Notes from pages 5-14

  • The left has managed to transfer the blame for racism (slavery, the Klu Klux Klan, etc.) from the Dem. Party to the Rep. Party. How was it done? They told lies. Lies were taught in classrooms; lies were made into movies and TV shows; lies were reported in the media as truth.
  • These lies were revealed in the book Hillary’s America—and the left was outraged.  Dinesh D’Souza noted that in 1860, the year before the Civil War, no republican owned any slaves; they were all owned by Democrats (p. 5).
  • It has come to be in this present culture that whenever someone doesn’t like what you believe in, he will call you Hitler or a Nazi. So the terms Nazi and fascism have become meaningless.
  • However, when multiple people say you’re a fascist, that makes it seem that you really are a fascist—and so the lie spreads.
  • When Trump has been compared to fascists and Nazis, they were (and are) seeking to make his presidency illegitimate.
  • What else did people do to try to convince the greater public that Trump was an illegitimate president? Did they investigate the voting records, etc.? Maybe a little; but mainly they told lies about him. They said he was unfit; some called for his impeachment; some even called for his assassination.

FDR: What you may not know about him

It seems that Franklin Delano Roosevelt was well-liked by most people—even Republicans. He is known for his weekly fireside radio chats, and he made a good show of it. Many I suppose couldn’t wait to hear him. But there were things that he never talked about—that he kept secret. And these secret things I think would qualify him as being one of the worst Presidents.

But why am I telling you this? Why should we dig up negative stuff now? Well because I think history is important for our overall understanding of the world—especially in Presidents. And I think, because he was so well liked, this President had a lot to do with setting the standard for Presidents, especially Presidents of the democratic party.

Overall, the basic criticism of FDR was that he was very controlling; he sought to control the government and the Democratic party; many thought he was headed toward a dictatorship by attempting to pack the Supreme court (And this is what we are doing now); and, he was the only president to run a third term—though the last term was shortened by his death.

Here are five more criticisms of FDR:

1. Many of his allies, after a time, rejected him.

  • His Vice President, John Garner, was not pleased with many of his policies, though we don’t know why.
  • Raymond Moley became a bitter opponent of his New Deal and caused him to turn conservative.
  • Ambassador Joseph Kennedy (John Kennedy’s dad) had an uneasy relationship with him.
  • Journalist Walter Lippmann thought he was unqualified to be President.
  • Publisher William Hearst was highly critical of his New Deal.
  • Al Smith, Gov. of N.Y. also opposed his New Deal.

2. Many were critical of his New Deal.

This New Deal was an extensive government intervention. In this New Deal FDR dramatically expanded the welfare state; he believed in an equal distribution of wealth.

3. Many said FDR was a communist and a fascist.

And many came out and blatantly said that he was anti-God.

4. He was racist for the following reasons:

  • He sent 120,000 Japanese and American citizens of Japanese ancestry to internment camps after WW2.
  • In the 1936 Olympics only white athletes were invited to meet Roosevelt. Even Jesse Owens who won four gold medals was not invited.
  • He did not support making lynching a federal crime.
  • FDR nominated Hugo Black to the Supreme Court, knowing that he had been an active member of the KKK in the 1920’s.

5. He was anti-Jewish.

  • He did not try to prevent the Holocaust.
  • In 1939, 936 Jewish refugees were denied asylum and not allowed into the U.S.
  • FDR knew that Jews were being killed but did nothing!
  • FDR failed to issue any public statements of the killing of Jews in any of his 998 press conferences. No wonder so many people in the U.S. knew nothing about the six million Jews that were killed. Why did FDR keep this a secret? And why did he not at least try to prevent the Holocaust?

The Meaning of Wokeism — 9 Points

A general description of woke, in Wikipedia, is “being alert to racial prejudice and discrimination. It later came to encompass a broader awareness of social inequalities such as sexism.

Perhaps a more specific definition more adapted from the left-wing movement is this: Wokeism is a movement to indoctrinate people into believing that white people are oppressors and that they need to “wake up” to that reality (from Beyond Biden).

I’m sure that if we were to interview ten different people on the street and ask them what wokeism is, that we would get ten different answers. Wokeism is a fairly new (or changing) concept and there is probably a lot of confusion about it. But we should know this: it is a concept and a movement that is Marxist, and it is being taught in our universities. And the movement is growing and it is evil and immoral; and it is against all that we know to be good, moral and right.

For this post I will take nine excerpts from chapter six of the book Beyond Biden, by Newt Gingrich on the topic of understanding wokeism. I am sure that Gingrich has done his homework on this subject—he has forty-six end notes on this chapter alone. Here goes…

What is wokeism?

  1. Wokeism is a toxic stew of left-wing philosophies that have merged into a self-perpetuating eruption of destructive nonsense flowing down from our universities into our K-12 classrooms, corporate boardrooms, and government centers. (Please read on.)
  2. The woke [those that believe in and teach wokeism] don’t care about truth, only about the advancement of their narrative.
  3. Critical theory teaches the woke (those that are just getting into this movement) that there is a hierarchy of oppression in the world. At the top sit straight, white Christian men. They have the most of what the woke call “privilege,” and because of that, their opinions should be dismissed.
  4. Anyone who expresses opinions that do not fit into the woke narrative is declared to have an inauthentic voice or having internalized oppression/racism.
  5. The woke believe racism pervades all of society, affects all our institutions and policies, and manifests itself in every single interaction we have as a people. As a result of this mindset, the woke see racism everywhere and feel compelled to “call it out” so it can be dismantled. (So, I suppose this is the basis for the rioting and what we call the great reset.)
  6. The idea of “whiteness” is a key concept for the woke and they want white people to become hyperaware of their racial identity. On this idea, a speaker of The Yale School of Medicine’s Department, Dr. Aruna Khilanani said, “White people are out of their minds and have been for a long time. She then bragged about cutting most white people out of her life. (This sound like Lori Lightfoot, the mayor of Chicago.) 
  7. Ibram Kendi stated explicitly that schools should be used as centers of indoctrination rather than education. He argues that teachers must teach their students anti-racist ideas. However, as an anti-racist scholar said, “I am white. White people can never be anything but oppressors…Being complicit with racism is something that we as white people just are.
  8. The woke define whiteness in purely negative terms and then force white people to identify with that negativity. This, said Newt Gingrich, is cultlike behavior and is the first step in brainwashing.
  9. Wokeism claims that American ideals (such as hard work and merit) are a lie since it is part of the white culture.

My Conclusion

You know, after pondering all this, the main idea I get from wokeism is that it is very childish and immature behavior. It is like what a group of misbehaved children would think of saying and doing to some other kids that they are mad at. They have no moral compass. They are just striking out, expressing their anger, saying: you got me so now I’m gonna get you. But the only real solution for all of us is to cry out to God for help. God alone will heal our wounds. He will give us a new heart and a new life so that we can all live together in harmony, black and white and brown together.

Beyond Biden: Overcoming Racism

I have been reading the book, Beyond Biden: Rebuilding the America we Love, by Newt Gingrich. I have to hand it to Newt for learning and understanding all the stuff he has put in his book, especially about wokeism and racism and critical race theory, etc. It is so complex to wade through it all. And it has its root in Marxism; and its goal is to destroy America. I feel so sorry for all the black people who are so taken in by it all. They have already gone through enough. Now it seems that they are forced to go through it all over again.

America is not a racist country. But we are now being told that everything in America is racist and that it all has to be torn down and “built back better.” This is why they are endeavoring to rewrite our language—because everything we say and do is embedded with racism. For example, the term hiking, baseball, Star Wars, specialty coffee, classical music, the candy industry; those terms they say are racist. And we have to get rid of them. I suppose they are thinking that if black people are not substantially involved in those things, the terms can’t be anything but racist. And so, anything where there has not been an equal involvement between blacks and whites is racist (but I’m sure there is more to it than that).

But for those who tear it all down, aren’t they also being racist? And if we do tear everything down and build it over, won’t all the new terms and ideas and culture be a new racism? Can man in his sinful nature get rid of the sin of racism? No! Only God who is perfect can do that. Man needs a new heart, a new self, which will come only through a conversion, only through redemption through Jesus Christ. He will redeem us from our old sinful racist nature. Then, for the first time we can know how to overcome racism and how to be whole. And then when we sin again, we can know where to go to find forgiveness.

Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things past away; behold, new things have come (2 Corinthians 5:17).

Evaluating Critical Race Theory – What is the Real Answer to Racism?

There seems to be two sides to Critical Race Theory. In one respect CRT is merely a broad study of race and racism. It is a changing package of ideas. It is a bunch of so-called race scholars trying to make sense out of our country as it is—a racist country; they are trying to understand how we got where we are. But another side of CRT is more dominant. These race scholars I think have a strategy: to infiltrate society and our schools with their ideas. But I’m not sure what their ultimate goal is. They may say it is to make society better; but at what cost? I fear it is at the cost of Socialism and even Communism.

In my reading on this topic I ran across this interesting article that was very revealing to me: A Lesson on Critical Race Theory. Here are a few quotes from the article on what CRT is.

  • A practice of interrogating the role of race and racism in society.
  • It critiques how the social construction of race and institutionalized racism perpetuate a racial caste system that relegates people of color to the bottom tiers.
  • CRT recognizes that race intersects with other identities, including sexuality, gender identity, and others.
  • CRT recognizes that racism is not a bygone relic of the past. Instead, it acknowledges that the legacy of slavery, segregation, and the imposition of second-class citizenship on Black Americans and other people of color continue to permeate the social fabric of this nation.
  • CRT is an acknowledgement that racism is a normal feature of society and is embedded within systems and institutions.
  • CRT recognizes that racism is codified in law, embedded in structures, and woven into public policy.
  • CRT can be an approach used to theorize, examine, and challenge the ways which race and racism implicitly and explicitly impact social structures, practices, and discourses. (I used bold for emphasis)

Wikipedia, under Critical race theory (CRT) also had some interesting information. Here are some quotes:

Here is one more article entitled, What is critical race theory, and why are conservatives blocking it?

According to this article CRT is…

  • A changing package of ideas.
  • It is rooted in the desire to understand how a regime of white supremacy and its subordination of people of color have been created and maintained in America.
  • Critics often call the theory Marxist.
  • In plain terms, critical race theory holds that racism is part of a broader pattern in America: It is woven into laws, and it shows up in who gets a job interview, the sort of home loans people are offered, how they are treated by police, and other facets of daily life large and small.

I don’t have too much to says other than what I have already said. Overall, I would definitely say that CRT is a Marxist theory and a movement, and we should try to stop it. Some like Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is doing just that and I applaud him. He said, “Teaching kids to hate their country and to hate each other is not worth one red cent of taxpayer money.” Missouri, Idaho, and Tennessee have introduced bills aimed at barring CRT in the classroom. Good move! Also, former President Trump has tried to stop it. We need him back.

So many things, movements are leaning toward Marxism these days. BLM, for instance, is closely tied to CRT. They are on the front lines of it. But you need to know that Satan is the one behind it all.

The Real Answer to Racism

Let me say, in conclusion, that if you really want to combat racism in this country and in the world, you don’t need a CRT. You need to read and study the bible for the answers. If you choose to do that you will find that the bible says nothing about the different races or about different skin colors. Evidently, God cares nothing about skin color. But He does care that people learn to get along with each other and to love each other. I found two words in the bible that will address racism: favoritism and partiality (or in the KJV it is “respect of persons”). Hence, we are not to show favoritism to people. We are to love and respect all people. Here are two verses to look at.

Acts 10:34-35

Then Peter began to speak: “I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism 35 but accepts men from every nation who fear him and do what is right.

James 2:1-11

My brothers, as believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ, don’t show favoritism. 2 Suppose a man comes into your meeting wearing a gold ring and fine clothes, and a poor man in shabby clothes also comes in. 3 If you show special attention to the man wearing fine clothes and say, “Here’s a good seat for you,” but say to the poor man, “You stand there” or “Sit on the floor by my feet,” 4 have you not discriminated among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts?

Now let me say as a final conclusion that, according to the bible, the key to not being racist is not to somehow change your behavior, because we can’t do it on our own. We need a heart change—a new heart. And Jesus can do that for us. If we give our lives to Him, He will give you a new heart, and all things will be made new. 2 Corinthians says, “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.” That means that all racist tendencies will be gone! He will give you a new desire to love all people—whatever color.

As the World Fans the Flame of Racism

The thing that is most on my mind these days is how certain groups and people are fanning the flames of racism—mostly against the police. Black Lives Matter is the worst, but very influential leaders are also doing it, like the governor of Minnesota (my state), and the mayor of Minneapolis. Some of the things that are said are downright stupid and very damaging to the police—an institution that we ought to be respecting; for God has established it, and when we resist that authority, we are resisting God Himself (Romans 13:2). When our leaders talk against the police, they are spreading a message of disrespect against them and ultimately against God. It is no wonder that black people are rising up in rebellion against them.

I just heard that our governor has suggested that traffic cops maybe will not carry a gun. Because of one mistake made by a police woman, we are going to put in danger the entire Minneapolis police force. How stupid!

You know, if people would start respecting the police and do what they are told to do—like get out of their automobile…put their hands on the dashboard…etc.—we wouldn’t have the problems we are having. I think the police needs to crackdown more on people who don’t obey them. They are being too lenient. They ought to be giving out stiff fines for disrespectful language and certainly for not obeying their orders. The bible says,

Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities…whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God (Romans 13:1-2).

But what can we do about governors who are telling the police to “backdown” and do nothing when there is a riot? All we can do is vote against them, but also pray. We have not yet come to the terrible times as it was in the early church when the Christians were under so much persecution by Nero and others. But it will be coming—if things keep going the way it has been. Those Roman dictators were all possessed by demons and were homosexuals. Yes, they were! They were given anything they desired to please themselves: young boys and girls were molested; and it was recorded that Nero used live Christians as torches to light his courtyard. These sins are returning to us—because of our latest policies in favor of homosexuals of all types—LGBTQIA, etc.

However, in all of the terrible trials we face and hear about, we can stand strong and rejoice in the Lord. He will always be with you and build you up. And know also that He is coming soon to receive you to Himself (read 1 Thess. 4:16-18).

Update: Bahrain, Mice, Racism, and more

Bahrain is a very small Island/ Country just west of Qatar.

Work. It’s Monday, not a lot going on as far as work. I have a small job on Wednesday; I just have to paint three doors, Tarrytown green. Fun.

Mice. Following up on my latest article about my mouse problem: I haven’t seen any mice for a few days. But I am convinced that I did have one or two mice—and I was not hallucinating. My evidence, besides seeing them, was finding a few black, small droppings under the stove, in back of the juicer, and on the bathroom floor in the corner. Gross! I am more motivated now to clean and make sure I have nothing laying around where they can nest. I would be mortified if I found a nest with baby mice in it. And I asked around to all the other apartments in my building, and no one has seen any mice. Why is it just me?

Bahrain. Just too days ago, Bahrain came on board with UAE. Now we have two nations at peace with Israel, which confirms my previous article on the fact that bible prophecy is now happening; and so, the Ezekiel Invasion (Ezek. 38, 39) is coming soon—which also means that the Rapture is coming soon. It is so exciting to see these things falling into place.

My church looking at racism. I tend not to want to talk about or hear anyone talk about racism. I think that is mainly in our past. And for the most part I think it was dealt with back in the 60’s. But our pastor has chosen to tackle it. Well, so far, I think he is doing a great job. His main motivation is evangelism in our community, which has a mixed race. So, we figure that our church should really have a mixed race of people. And, for the most part, we do.

His text was from Revelation 7:9: “After these things I looked, and behold a great multitude which no one could count, from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb…”

So, he got from that verse that in heaven there will be a mixed race of people: all nations, tribes, and languages. It is a beautiful picture. We should not see heaven as a blend of the races, say all brown people. No. It will be multi-colored. Very colorful! And we will love and accept each other as we are. So, the main message is that we need to humble ourselves, face up to, and talk about where we are concerning how we feel about each other—people of other races. Sin wants to hide; but redemption demands honesty, humility and transparency.

But we also need to be careful and wise. Riots are not the way to deal with anything. Anger will not solve anything. And we know now that there are anarchists that want to take advantage of any hurtful situation in order to destroy our country. We don’t need another civil war. We need prayer and revival, and we need law and order to go along with it.

My reading. I just started reading Live Free Or Die, by Sean Hannity. Good grief. I had no idea that the book would be so deep. I mean, it is like a text book with tons of research. It’s a book I could definitely read more than once. There is so much in it. It is not that hard to read, just so much in it. Oh well, I will just read it slow, a little at a time. It is good. A lot of good information about our great country.
