Letter: Democrats ignore their party's history

We are part of The Trust Project.

Liberals who accuse conservatives of being racist reveal an ignorance of history.

The real racists have been and continue to be the Democrats. Do your own research. Use original source documents. Democrats have been trying to re-write history for over 100 years. Their website offers proof since much is missing, including the following:

In 1866, Democrats developed a political action group called the KKK whose purpose was to control the black vote and prevent minority support for Republicans.

In 1868 The KKK’s first grand wizard was honored at the Democrat National Convention. Democrats erased this information from many historical documents. Original source documents such as a 13-volume set of Congressional investigations from 1822 contain proof.

In 1871, Democrats called black and white Republicans “radical." Sound familiar?


In 1876, when Democrat Senator Wade Hampton ran for Governor, the Klan’s slogan was, “Every Democrat must feel honor bound to control the vote of at least one Negro by intimidation…” Sound familiar?

An issue of Harper’s Weekly included a depiction of two white Democrats standing next to a black man while pointing a gun at him. A caption read, “Of Course He Wants to Vote The Democrat Ticket!”

Jim Crow laws passed by Democrats promoted racial segregation in the southern U. S. from 1880s to 1964.

From 1882 to 1964, the KKK hanged an estimated 3,446 blacks and 1,297 whites for supporting Republican ideologies.

Many modern conservatives continue to see similarities between the methods used by Democrats of the past and current practices. The modern-day “lynching” is the destruction of the individual’s reputation.

Several historians/biographers claim the Lyndon Johnson Presidency became concerned that black voters were becoming “uppity." To assure the black vote for centuries, LBJ pushed civil rights legislation making minorities enslaved by the government and the Democrats.

In 2019, Democrats are once again planning to use tax dollars from hard-working people to keep minorities dependent upon the government. Today, Democrat presidential candidates are offering free college, child care, drugs and health care for everyone, including illegals, etc., if people vote Democrat and become modern-day slaves to the Democrat Party.

To enslave any minority is the ugliest form of racism.
