The True And Detailed Racist History Of The Democrat Party
Liberals love to revise American history because as a Democrat, they are ashamed of their past. Maybe it is time to set the record straight on things. Here is a timeline of the two parties from the beginning until now. For those of you who may not be aware; in the year 2020 – the term Liberal is synonymous with Democrat.
The Democratic Party officially adopted its present name during the presidency of Andrew Jackson in the 1830s, making him the father of the Democrat Party. Though Andrew Jackson did a few great things as president and before, Democrats refuse to acknowledge any of them because of The Trail of Tears. Amazingly enough however, they don’t even understand that Andrew Jackson wasn’t president when The Trail of Tears occurred.
For those of you who don’t know about The Trail of Tears, this started a troubling trend for the Democrat Party that they still continue to this very day; ignoring Supreme Court rulings. Cherokee Nation v. Georgia (1831) and Worcester v. Georgia (1832); were decisions that the Supreme Court passed down which stated that: “The native nations were sovereign nations and did not fall under the jurisdiction of the state.” Andrew Jackson did not care about these decisions since he signed the Indian Removal Act in 1830, and spent the remainder of his 2 terms removing native nations from their lands.
Martin Van Buren
Andrew Jackson’s 2 term Vice President, Martin Van Buren; became his successor and the 2nd Democrat President of the United States. One of Van Buren’s first orders as President was The Trail of Tears, NOT Andrew Jackson. He sent 7,000 troops to Georgia to “expedite the process” and march the remaining Cherokee holdouts the 1,200 miles to the “Indian Territory” presently known as Oklahoma. It is also important to note that the only other measurable thing that the 2 Democratic President did was oppose the slaves on the Amistad having their freedom.
The 3rd Democratic President is often referred to as the worst president, though there are many others who also compete for this title. James Polk is considered a bad president because he was the first president to invade a foreign country (Mexico) for land in the Mexican American War; now known as New Mexico, Arizona, and California. This is yet another case that Liberals always refer to when trash talking American History.
The 4th Democratic President was Franklin Pierce. Another shining example of Democrat racism when he signed the Kansas-Nebraska Act in 1854 which repealed the ban of slavery in the western territories. This one occurrence, caused a political revival as Abolitionist Democrats, Whigs, and Free Soilers all united to create the Republican Party. Franklin Pierce in essence, was the pebble that started the landslide that soon became the American Civil War.
The 5th Democratic President was James Buchanan, and just like his 4 predecessors, was a horrible and incredibly bigoted president. Not only was he racist, but he also declared a war on Mormons, calling their community a “strange system of terrorism”. He also blamed the abolitionists for the upcoming Civil War stating; “Before many years the abolitionists will bring war upon this land.” But didn’t do anything in an attempt to stop it from happening, not to mention that he was very influential in the Dred Scott Decision.
The 6th Democratic President, Andrew Johnson, was a Democrat when he was the Vice President of Abraham Lincoln, but ran for President under the flag of the National Union Party. As President he was responsible for the amazing failure of “Reconstruction” and was adamantly against any and all civil rights legislation as you will soon see examples of. In 1868, he was also the very first president in United States History to be impeached! When the process started, he declared; “This is a country for white men, and by God, as long as I am President, it shall be a government of white men”
Also in 1868, the Democrat Georgia Congress expelled its 25 African American members, all Republicans, including Civil Rights activist Tunis Campbell. They remained expelled, harassed, and threatened until Republican President U.S. Grant reinstated them all in 1869.
Who Actually Passed The Civil Rights Laws?
We have covered the first 5 Democrat presidents so far that have led to the Civil War. I am sure that Liberals will say; “But they are just presidents! The Congress passes these things!” So, since there is a large gap between Democrat presidents after the Civil War, lets focus on the congress for a minute.
1865 marked the passage of the 13 Amendment. The 13th Amendment was the constitutional amendment that stated that no persons could be held in slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime. This passed congress with 84 Republicans and only 14 Democrats voting to pass it, with ZERO Republicans and 49 Democrats voting against it.
Next came the Civil Rights Act of 1866. This law granted ALL citizens equal rights regardless of color without distinction of race or color, or previous condition of slavery or involuntary servitude. This bill was passed with an initial vote of 84 Republicans and ZERO Democrats voting yes, and ZERO Republicans and 32 Democrats voting no. This passage was vetoed by Democrat President Johnson, and the veto was overturned. This was the precursor to the 14th Amendment.
The Republican Congress later passed the 14 Amendment, with an initial vote of 137 Republicans and ZERO Democrats voting yes, with ZERO Republicans and 32 Democrats voting no. The 14th Amendment granted citizenship to “all persons born or naturalized in the United States basically placing the Civil Rights Act of 1866 into the Constitution.
Another 2 pieces of legislation was passed in 1870, the 15 Amendment and The Enforcement Act of 1870. The 15 Amendment granted the right to vote to all Americans regardless of race and was. The Enforcement Act of 1870, prohibited discrimination by state officials in voter registration on the basis of race, color, or previous condition of servitude. This law was inspired by the Ku Klux Klan intimidating black voters at the polls. Both of these laws were passed, like those before it, with 115 Republicans and ZERO Democrats voting yes, with ZERO Republicans and 83 Democrats voting no.
There was another act that was passed shortly thereafter called The Civil Rights Act of 1875. This act was put into place to guarantee African Americans equal treatment in public accommodations, public transportation, and to prohibit exclusion from jury service. Keeping up with the trend of the last decade; 161 Republicans and (again) ZERO Democrats voted yes, with 12 Republicans and 84 Democrats voting no.
