Did The Parties Switch Sides?

The Claim:

Blacks switched from Supporting the Republican Party to Supporting the Democrat Party immediately after passage of the 1965 Civil Rights Act.

Why?

Because Immediately After Voting on the CRA of 1965, Civil Rights Republicans became Democrats, and historically racist Democrats became Republicans. Blacks responded, running from the racists.

The Facts

The black community did not switch to voting for democrats after 1965. They switched in the 1930s, 30 years earlier. The first Democrat presidential candidate to receive a majority of the black vote was FDR in 1936.

“From 1865 to 1936…approximately 90 percent of blacks voted Republican and only 10% voted Democratic.”

“By 1936, 75 percent of blacks became Democrats. This trend has only continued since then…” Hillary’s America

Debunking the claim that Immediately After 1965 Republicans became Democrats, and historically racist Democrats became Republicans.

The Facts Of Politicians Switching Parties Post 1965.

All total, 126 Congressmen voted NO, only 4 switched parties, 96.8% DID NOT.

  • 21 Democrat Senators Voted Against the CRA of 1964, Only 1 Switched Parties
  • 46 Democrat Senators Voted For the CRA of 1964, NONE Switched Parties
  • 6 Republican Senators Voted Against the CRA of 1964, NONE Switched Parties
  • 27 Republican Senators Voted For the CRA of 1964, NONE Switched Parties

NOTE: Republican Senators voted in favor of the CRA of 1964 in greater percentages than Democrats did (81.8% vs 68.7%). Republican Senators also broke the Democrat Party’s 75 Day filibuster of the CRA.

  • 94 Democrat Congressmen Voted Against the CRA of 1964, Only 4 Switched Parties
  • 35 Republican Congressmen Voted Against the CRA of 1964, NONE Switched Parties
  • 136 Republican Congressmen Voted For the CRA of 1964, Only 3 Switched Parties: Two became Democrats, One became an Independent. 98.8% Remained Republicans.
    • Far from leaving the party, some also became national leaders within the Republican Party (Donald Rumsfeld, Gerald Ford, Robert Dole).

A much more comprehensive list solidifies the fact that that parties did not switch. Dinesh D’Sousa, in his movie Hillary’s America, details a list of 1600 racist democrats including:

  • Leaders of the KKK
  • Leaders of other racist groups
  • Democrat Congressmen from 1860-2000
  • Democrat Senators from 1860-2000
  • Democrat Senators and Congressmen who voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1964

The total that switched parties to become Republicans…

only 14 out of 1600, less than 1%.

Picture of the Destruction of Manly Printing Press, November 10, 1898.

1) The Wilmington “Race Riot” of 1898 – A Democrat Party mob attacked an African American owned newspaper, burning it to the ground and killing at least 14 and possible up to 60. Many high profile black leaders fled the city, along with many whites, over 2,100 in all. No repercussions came to the democrats.

1898 Wilmington Race Riot Commission Final Report 31 May, 2006

Democrat Party in North Carolina perpetrated “the only confirmed coup d’etat in American history, when Democrats forced the lawfully elected Republican leaders of Wilmington, North Carolina, (Republican mayor, Board of Aldermen, and Chief of Police) out of office at gun-point.” This was an attack on the US Constitution. Wrong on Race

This report should show that the riot was not an isolated, spontaneous, incident but the result of a series of events that were directed and planned by upper class white businessmen in order to regain control of government and that Wilmington should not be viewed as existing in a vacuum. It was part of a larger campaign to take over state government in 1898. Democratic Party strategists thrust the city into the spotlight as an example of Republican corruption and bad government because of the participation of African Americans in local politics.

Organizers of the coup instituted a banishment campaign, targeting political opponents, black and white, leading to the expulsion from the city of over twenty targeted individuals and a mass exodus of over 2,100 others. Consequently, the Republican power base in Wilmington was destroyed.”

NOTE: The Democrats took control of the NC General Assembly in 1899 and Governor in 1901. Largely due to disenfranchising black voters, the Democrat Party dominated NC politics for the next 70 years.

Virginia Constitution:

Jun 12, 1901 – June 26, 1902 – “An elected body of 100 delegates, including 11 Republicans and 1 independent, convenes in Richmond for a constitutional convention, and debates for almost a year.

July 10, 1902 – Virginia’s Constitution of 1902 becomes law, disfranchising thousands of poor whites and nearly eliminating the state’s African-American electorate. It replaces Virginia’s 1869 Reconstruction-era constitution, which had a universal male suffrage clause. The 1902 Constitution created a new legal enforcement of Jim Crow and further solidified its social enforcement.

November 7, 1905 Largely because of the voting restrictions implemented by the Constitution of 1902, 88,000 fewer ballots are cast in the gubernatorial election than in the previous election in 1901.

July, 1971 The Constitution of 1971 becomes law and ends the rules and regulations instituted by the Constitution of 1902.”

Is this racist history behind Democrat Party hysteria that voter ID laws would cause blacks to lose the right to vote? Is this a justified case of Democrat Party “White Guilt”?

Democrat Woodrow Wilson’s Administration (March 4, 1913 March 4, 1921):

2) 1913 Headline Washington Post Headline from 1913: “Wants to Part Races: Thompson Introduces Rigid Segregation Bill in House”, Thompson was a Democrat Congressman from Oklahoma, who stoked the Federal Government Segregation policy of Democrat President Woodrow Wilson.

By the close of 1913 “segregation had been realized in the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, the Post Office Department, the Office of the Auditor for the Post Office, and had even begun in the City Post Office in Washington D.C. Wrong on Race

For the first time “In 1914 the Civil Service began demanding photographs to accompany employment applications to weed out black applicants.” Wrong on Race

Black political appointees in the South were fired, as were many working in local post offices and as collectors of internal revenue. Wrong on Race

March 17, 1913 August 26, 1920: FDR served in the Wilson Administration as the Assistant Secretary of the Navy, under overt racist Josephus Daniels, who instituted segregation throughout the USN. No record that JFK ever spoke out/opposed segregation in the federal government, or in the USN? WWI kept blacks in segregated units. Hillary’s America/Wrong On Race

3) Republicans like CM John Rogers (R) Massachusetts tried to fight segregation, but they were in the Congressional minority, and ignored. Democrats held a 157 member advantage in the house and a 7 vote advantage in the Senate. Washington Post (Oct 17, 1913)

WWI, under President Wilson (D), the US Military created segregated units, and kept blacks out of combat. Wrong on Race

4) “The Nineteenth Amendment was first introduced in Congress in 1878 by Senator Aaron D. Sargent (R). The bill calling for the amendment would be introduced unsuccessfully each year for the next forty years. Forty-one years later, in 1919, Congress approved the amendment and submitted it to the states for ratification.” Wikipedia

Democrats used filibusters on multiple occasions to stop the bill in their “War on Women” until Republicans were ultimately successful in 1919.

House Vote: 85% of Republicans Yes; and only 54% of Democrats Yes

Senate Vote: 56 to 25 (Republicans 36 Yes, 8 No); (Democrats 20 Yes, 17 No)

When the Amendment was submitted to the states, 26 of the 36 states that ratified it had Republican legislatures. Of the nine states that voted against ratification, eight were Democratic. American Spectator

Twelve states, all Republican, had given women full suffrage before the federal amendment was ratified.”

5) Historian Kenneth O’Reilly, Nixon’s Piano: Presidents and Racial Politics from Washington to Clinton.

This period saw the rise to prominence of Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, and advocate for abortions and population control through “Eugenics”.

NOTE: Hillary Clinton received the Margaret Sanger Award in 2009, maintaining a solid connection to the Democrat Party’s racist past. Sanger Quotes:

“The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”

“We want a world freer, happier, cleaner we want a race of thoroughbreds.”

“We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members”
