Additional History:

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

Elected Officials:

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%.

Civil Rights Infographic (1921-1960)

Infographic Exposing the Dark Racial Past of the Democrat Party, and the Civil Rights Leadership of the Republican Party.

1 “Lynching had become so common in the United States, especially in the South, that in 1921 Representative L. C. Dyer of Missouri introduced a bill in the House of Representatives to make lynching a federal crime.

Dyer acted out of conscience but also at the strong behest of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. The bill passed the House, but Southerners in the Senate organized a filibuster that prevented a vote, resulting in the measure’s failure and leaving the states to deal with the lynching problem.”

NOTE: NAACP website (quote above) discusses the anti-lynching bill, but fails to mention the party (Republican) that passed it, or the party (Democrat) that stopped it in the Senate. The truth about the parties is clear!

2 “Democratic Convention of 1924, known to history as the “Klanbake.”

The 103-ballot convention was held in Madison Square Garden. Hundreds of delegates were members of the Ku Klux Klan, the Klan so powerful (within the Democrat Party) that a plank condemning Klan violence was defeated outright.

To celebrate, the Klan staged a rally with 10,000-hooded Klansmen in a field in New Jersey directly across the Hudson from the site of the convention. Attended by hundreds of cheering convention delegates, the rally featured burning crosses and calls for violence against African-Americans and Catholics.”

2 San Diego Union Tribune

October 3, 1924 Republicans denounce three-time Democrat presidential nominee William Jennings Bryan for defending the Ku Klux Klan at 1924 Democratic National Convention”

Cover Page of 1923 Rosewood, Florida Violence Report, published 22 Dec 1993.

“The Rosewood Massacre was a violent, racially motivated massacre of blacks and destruction of a black town that took place during the first week of January 1923 in rural Levy County, Florida. At least six blacks and two whites were killed, and the town of Rosewood was abandoned and destroyed in what contemporary news reports characterized as a race riot.”

The Rosewood Massacre is almost certainly another example of racist democrats attacking blacks in the south. There is absolutely NO mention in the Rosewood Report of political parties. It is sadly typical of the historical whitewashing going on in America today. A lengthy search of the internet could not find the political parties of any of the known people involved, such as Sheriff Robert Alias Walker.

The Klan, the militant arm of the democrat party, was immensely powerful in Florida during this period, as it was throughout the southern states. The Klan’s revival ignited by President Woodrow Wilson. Reports show that many klan members were present during the massacre.

Given the Democrat Party’s “Klanbake” which occurred a year later, there is little doubt that the “white people” mentioned in the report were democrats, as they were during the Wilmington Race Riot.

Typical comments from the report, which show the lengths the authors went to avoid showing the party affiliations of those culpable, and to place the blame on “America” in general:

  • “The failure of elected white officials to take forceful actions to protect the safety and property of local black residents was part of a pattern in the state and throughout the region.
  • Local and state officials failed to intervene to protect black citizens, and in each incident several innocent blacks were killed and their property destroyed. The same was true in other southern states where rape and black resistance were not tolerated by white residents and were seen as a legitimate excuse to abandon the law in favor of brute force.
  • Pleas from citizens and their spokesmen fell on deaf ears, and Florida’s white leadership responded to the civil and racial unrest only when it threatened to jeopardize the state’s economic advancement.
  • Like the racial violence innumerous other communities throughout Florida and the South during this era, Rosewood was a tragedy of American democracy and the American legal system.”

1928: First Hispanic U.S. Senator, Senator Octaviano Larrazolo (R-NM), sworn in.

June 12, 1929: “First Lady Lou Hoover (R) invites wife of U.S. Rep. Oscar De Priest (R-IL), an African-American, to tea at the White House, sparking protests by Democrats across the country”

1933 – Up to this year, every single black member of the US Congress was Republican.

Note the massive swing in House Control from Republican to Democrat in the chart below, which remained largely in Democrat Party control until 1995. The Senate follows the same pattern.

US House Party Majorities - Note The Impacts From The Great Depression (1931-1941), and The New Deal

US House Party Majorities – Note The Democrat Majorities Stemming From The Great Depression (1931-1941), and The New Deal

1930s – Two major events occurred that change the allegiance of most blacks in America from Republican to Democrat (the Great Depression, and the New Deal, which served as the newest Democrat enslavement program). By the end of the 1930, the vast majority had switched parties.

  • This occurred long before the “Dixicrats” rose up, and returned to the Democrat Party, or the Democrat party’s 1965 Civil Rights Act filibuster.

1937 – FDR (Democrat) rams through Senator Hugo Black’s (D) Alabama SCOTUS nomination in only a few days before any vetting could occur.

  • Story of Justice Black’s KKK history broke soon after his confirmation. The Democrat Party “circled the wagons around him” attacking those who exposed Black’s racist history. Wrong on Race

4 1940 “Republican Party Platform calls for integration of the armed forces; however, Democrat President Franklin Delano Roosevelt refused to order it.”

April 3, 1944 – U.S. Supreme Court strikes down Texas Democratic Party’s whites only primary election system

1948 – “Dixiecrats” rise from the Democrat Party, and returned back to it after the Presidential Election of 1948.

1948: Party Platforms

  • Republican: We are opposed to the idea of racial segregation in the armed services of the United States. We favor the abolition of the poll tax as a requisite to voting. Lynching or any other form of mob violence anywhere is a disgrace to any civilized state, and we favor the prompt enactment of legislation to end this infamy.
  • Democratic Party: Silent on all three.

1949 – Margaret Chase Smith (R-ME) becomes the first woman to serve in both the Senate and the House of Representatives.

President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s (R) Administration (1953-1961)

See Infographic Above For Additional Civil Rights Actions:

1953 – California’s 3-term Republican Governor Earl Warren, who was also the 1948 Republican Vice-Presidential Nominee and later the Chief Supreme Court Justice, wrote the landmark decision in Brown V. Board of Education banning segregation in public schools. Justice Warren was appointed by President Eisenhower (R).

1956 – “Until 1956 when he (Martin Luther King Jr.) registered as a Republican, every Civil Rights law hand been introduced and passed by Republicans in opposition by the Democrats.” Stolen History

1956 – Republican federal judge Frank Johnson rules in favor of Rosa Parks in decision striking down Alabama’s segregation law that forced blacks to sit in the back of buses.

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

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”

It ignores the first Civil Rights Era and the first 110 years of history jumping straight to 1964. Americans need to understand our complete history of civil rights, the Democratic Party’s dark role, and the Republican Party’s civil rights fight begun at its birth in 1854.

Further evidence of how the Democrat Party’s Racist History has been buried. The following quote if from a AP US History Website, which posts definitions of APUSH terms. For the KKK, the site teaches:

“Deeply embittered, some Southern whites resorted to savage measures against “radical” rule. Many whites resented the success and ability of black legislators as much as they resented alleged “corruption.” A number of secret organizations mushroomed forth, the most notorious of which was the “Invisible Empire of the South,” or the ____, founded in Tennessee in 1866. They would approach the cabin of an “upstart” black and hammer on the door. In ghoulish tones one thirsty horseman would demand a bucket of water. Then, under pretense of drinking, he would pour it into a rubber attachment concealed beneath his mask and gown, smack his lips, and declare that this was the first water he had tasted since he was killed at the Battle of Shiloh. If fright did not produce the desired effect, force was employed.”

Where is the truth of who these “Southern Whites” were? They were the militant arm of the Democrat Party!

The strongest example of the Democrat Party’s historical whitewash is shown in the 2010 screenshot from their Party’s website. The site has since been rewritten.

According to Dinesh D’Souza’s Hillary’s America:

+Democrat Party’s Heritage:

  • Oppression of Blacks/American Indians
    • Stole land from Indians and labor from Blacks
  • Since 1930s (Progressive Era), established modern plantations in the inner cities, added immigrants to the mix
  • Developed confiscatory/progressive taxation system, now taking something from everybody. Don’t forget the democrat driven tax rates of 80-90%. End state, take everything from everyone, distribute as they see fit.
  • From slavery through modern progressivism, Democrats have always stolen the fruits of peoples labor. Now, working to enslave Americans to the all powerful progressive state.
  • Party of deceit, lawlessness.
  • Modern Democrats contort our Nations Birth and our Constitution to denigrate America’s founding, and cover the racist history/nature of their party.

+Republican Party’s Heritage:

  • From its birth in 1854 was the Party of anti-slavery (which ended slavery), and inherited the ideals of the American Revolution (the revolutionary tradition)
    • Conserving the promises of liberty, freedom (political/economic/thought and religion), personal responsibility, justice (justice of rights (equality under the law), economic allocation i.e. free market capitalism).
  • Republicans always stood for letting people keep what they produce and earn.
  • Republicans have always been the party of women’s rights and minority rights.

*Dred Scott: Dred Scott v Sanford, 60 U.S. 393 (1857) is universally considered the worst decision in the history of the Supreme Court’s. In 1857, a Democratic Party Dominated Supreme Court (7 Democrats vs 2 Republicans) handed down the infamous Dred Scott decision (7 to 2, all Democrats in the Majority), declaring that blacks were not persons or citizens but instead were property and therefore had no rights. Both Republican Justices (Justice John McLean and Justice Benjamin Curtis) opposed the majority and voted in favor of Dred Scott, an enslaved man, and his “God-given rights”.

1 13th Amendment Vote Counts:

  • House: Republicans (86 Yea, 0 Nay); Democrats (50 Nay, 14 Yea, 8 Not Voting);
  • Senate: Republicans (31 Yea, 0 Nay); Democrats (5 Nay, 2 Yea, 3 Not Voting)

NOTE: In 1865 President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated by confederate sympathizer John Wilkes Booth. President Lincoln’s Vice President and successor was Democrat Andrew Johnson.

15th Amendment Vote Counts:

  • House: Republicans (144Yea, 4 Nay, 27 Not Voting); Democrats (39 Nay, 0 Yea, 8 Not Voting);
  • Senate: Republicans (31 Yea, 0 Nay, 13 Not Voting); Democrats (8 Nay, 0 Yea, 1 Not Voting)

2 Black Codes: Furious over Republican passage of the constitutional amendments and civil rights legislation, southern democrats passed the infamous “Black Codes” (1865-1866).

Examples of Black Codes common throughout the south:

  • Restricted professions blacks could work in, allowed white masters to whip black servants
  • Restricted rights to own property, buy or lease land, and to conduct business
  • Restricted where blacks could travel, could be imprisoned if caught
  • Blacks restricted from juries, nor could they vote
  • Many crimes carried the death penalty for blacks, but not for whites
  • Testimony in court not admissible except against other blacks
  • Had to carry proof that they were working (labor contract or government license) or face arrest
  • Blacks could not leave their employers
  • Blacks could not possess knives, firearms or liquor

3 Civil Rights Act of 1866:

“An Act to protect all Persons in the United States in their Civil Rights, and furnish the Means of their Vindication.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,That all persons born in the United States and not subject to any foreign power, excluding Indians not taxed, are hereby declared to be citizens of the United States; and such citizens, of every race and color, without regard to any previous condition of slavery or involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall have the same right, in every State and Territory in the United States, to make and enforce contracts, to sue, be parties, and give evidence, to inherit, purchase, lease, sell, hold, and convey real and personal property, and to full and equal benefit of all laws and proceedings for the security of person and property, as is enjoyed by white citizens, and shall be subject to like punishment, pains, and penalties, and to none other, any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom, to the contrary notwithstanding.”

*New Orleans Riot/Massacre: 30 July,1866 – In Democrat controlled City of New Orleans KKK, supported by police and firemen storm and attack the racially-integrated Republican convention in New Orleans. “Federal troops were called in to stop the violence but by the time they arrived the mayhem had run its course. Official reports from the massacre, one of the bloodiest riots of the Reconstruction era in the United States, listed 37 persons (34 black and 3 white Radicals a term for anti-slavery republicans) killed and 146 wounded. Contemporary witnesses believed the numbers to be much higher.” World Library, Louisiana State Museum, Free Republic

“The Committee of Congress appointed to investigate the riot in New Orleans on July 30, 1866, have lately presented a report, giving a full history of the tragedy. It is shown by that record that the riotous attack upon the Republican Convention, with its terrible results of massacre and murder, was planned and executed by the Mayor of New Orleans, and that it had the countenance of President Johnson, without which it would never have taken place.” Harper’s Weekly

Assassination: 1868 – Republican U.S. Representative James Hinds (R-AR), a strong supporter of reconstruction, was assassinate by the KKK, and state Representative Joseph Brook was seriously wounded. The assassin was George A. Clark (D), Secretary of the Democratic Committee of Monroe County, AR who shot Hinds in the back with a shotgun.” Clark was never arrested or prosecuted. Congressman Hinds was the highest ranking government official to be killed during reconstruction.

*Freedman’s Bureau: 1865-1872, a US Federal Agency within the War Department established by President Lincoln, supported by Republicans in Congress to Force Southern States to Comply with newly enacted freedoms for blacks during the Reconstruction era.

Justice Department: 1870, Established by Republican President Ulysses S. Grant to fight the Democrat Party’s KKK.

1st Black Senator: 1870, The Reverend Hiram Revels from Mississippi becomes the first person of color elected to the Senate, and he was a Republican.

2nd Black Senator: 1875, Blanche K. Bruce from Mississippi becomes the second person of color elected to the Senate, and he was a Republican.

NOTE: No other person of color was elected to the senate until 1967, when Edward Brooks, another Republican, was elected from Massachusetts.

GOP Debate Grades, Who Got Hurt?

The GOP held it’s second Presidential Debate Wednesday. CNN did its best to instigate on air infighting. I analyze the moderators performance in this first audio blog, including highlighting the one critical issue missing from any CNN question:

Despite CNN using many of the questions for “he said she said” disruption, the candidates managed to refocus, and discuss many of the issues critical to the 2016 election. I discuss each of the top candidates performances in the following audio blogs, in order of the RCP polling averages as of Wednesday’s debate:

Trump (30.5%), Carson (20.0%), Bush (7.8%):
