Maybe Jenn Carrillo can hop on her official Facebook page and deny she made this comment on my site:
Doesn’t this sound just like her?
America has survived for almost 244 years without socialism being “existentially necessary”.
Have we lost the battle? Not as long as the 2nd Amendment exists. That’s why Democrats keep trying to take it away.
The Juneteenth celebration is Friday. It marks the day when a UNION General announced the slaves were free in Galveston Texas in 1865. It took awhile to spread the news back then.
If blacks knew their own history they wouldn’t support the Democrat Party:
In 1857 Democrats on the Supreme Court ruled blacks were property, not citizens. (Dred Scott)
Abraham Lincoln, author of the Emancipation Proclamation, was a Republican.
The Union soldiers fighting the confederates were Republicans. Confederates were democrats.
Any estimated 365,000 Union soldiers died to end the Confederacy – as in slavery.
Republicans passed the 13th Amendment in 1865 outlawing slavery.
Democrats didn’t concede defeat, they created the KKK to keep fighting.
Southern Democrats wrote the “black codes” and Jim Crow laws to keep blacks in slavery.
Republicans over-rode a Presidential veto to pass the Civil Rights Act of 1866, conferring rights of citizenship on freed slaves.
Republicans passed the 14th Amendment in 1866 forcing states to recognize black citizenship – every democrats voted against it in the House and Senate.
I could go on with old history – but let’s get more current:
Democrat President Woodrow Wilson re-segregated the military.
General Dwight D Eisenhower allowed black soldiers to carry weapons during World War II. As President he ended segregation in the District of Columbia, the public schools in DC, and in the armed forces. After the Supreme Court ruled in 1954 on Brown v. Board of Education he sent the military to escort black students to school – democrats governors refused.
Jump forward again:
Former KKK member Democrat Senator Robert Byrd filibustered the Civil Rights bill in 1964 for 14 hours. Democrats went on to filibuster the bill for 71 days, but because of television they were starting to look really bad. Democrat President Lyndon Johnson force them to vote.
Johnson then dramatically expanded the welfare state calling it a “War on Poverty”. It didn’t end poverty, but it did make millions of dependents.
On Feb. 5, 1997, African-American Republican Rep. J.C. Watts Jr., stated: “For the past 30 years our nation’s spent $5 trillion trying to erase poverty, and the result, as you know, is that we didn’t get rid of it at all. In fact, we spread it. We destroyed the self-esteem of millions of people, grinding them down in a welfare system that penalizes moms for wanting to marry the father of their children, and penalizes moms for wanting to save money. Friends, that’s not right. …” https://www.wnd.com/2016/07/the-ugly-history-of-democratic-suppression-of-blacks/
Nothing has changed:
Democrat Tari Renner stated Clarence Thomas doesn’t act Afro-American. https://blnnews.com/2019/05/25/tari-renner-clarence-thomas-doesnt-act-afro-american/
Democrat Joe Biden stated you aren’t black if you don’t vote for him. https://www.cnn.com/2020/05/22/politics/biden-charlamagne-tha-god-you-aint-black/index.html
We know what party is racists. It isn’t Republicans.
