OPINION: The BIG Lie – Why Donald Trump is not the problem

There is a deep hostility currently enveloping the United States. This hostility has been packaged and delivered as legitimate anger due to an extreme racist coveting the most powerful office in the world, President Donald J. Trump. The depth of this anger has been offered falsely to make the general public believe that if we just get this bigoted racist out of office, all will be well.

To really understand the grave detriment of this lie, we must first seek the origins of racism and bigotry that has been a part of the United States culture for the last 250 years. This continuing injustice has nothing to really do with the Republicans but everything to do with the Democrat Party. Thanks to the new, radicalized left, we see the true goal of the Democrat Party at its worst.

If we date racism back to the beginnings of this country, there is certainly no lack of evidence in regards to slavery, oppression and bigotry. But the real Democrat Party, the one of today can be dated back to the election of Andrew Jackson. It was this single event that brought the new Democrat Party into today’s society.

The modern Democrat Party was born into existence due to the original Democrat-Rebublican Party which had largely collapsed by the mid 1820’s. The modern Democrat Party began to implode in the 1990’s when the Democrats held both the House and Senate. It has been struggling to stay afloat ever since, getting more and more radicalized with each new Congress.

From 1862 to 1932 the Democrat Party only elected two presidents, the Republican Party simply dominated politics. This was due largely to the Democrat Parties very progressive and racist stance. During this time, Democrat groups like the Ku Klux Klan dominated the African-American population with fear, oppression and violence. In fact, many elected Democrat officials dominated southern politics. 

The Ku Klux Klan was founded in Pulaski, Tennessee on December 23rd, 1865 by six Confederate veterans. It was founded as a social club for white’s. It’s primary purpose was to be  a very pernicious force for African-Americans. It extended into almost every southern state by 1870 and became a vehicle for white southern resistance to the Republican Party’s Reconstruction-era policies aimed at establishing political and economic equality for African-Americans. 

Those who were members of this inferior group primarily voted Democrat. Famous racist Democrat leaders of this era were men like The late Sen. Robert Byrd, D-W.Va., a former Klansman, wrote during World War II: “I shall never fight in the armed forces with a Negro by my side. … Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.”

You also have men like Lyndon B. Johnson who was in the House of Representatives, he said that President Harry Truman’s civil rights program was “a farce and a sham – an effort to set up a police state in the guise of liberty.”

He continued in this quote: “I am opposed to that program. I have voted against the so-called poll tax repeal bill. … I have voted against the so-called anti-lynching bill.” 

He continues,  “These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days, and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness.”

When Lyndon Johnson urged the senate to pass the Civil Rights act, he did not do it because he felt African Americans to be equal, he urged the passing in order to attempt to stay in power, a common political tactic used throughout history, appeasement. He knew full well he could “get those negroes to vote democrat for the next 50 years”, 

The gift given to African Americans as so-called civil rights could be controlled through other methods. Some may coin this, making a deal with the devil. As it’s been a little over that period of time now, his plan has seemed to work. But like anyone, African-Americans are slowly starting to see cracks in the armor of this plan.

Let’s look at a current example of a Democratic racist in government, Joe Biden. VP Biden has made a number of moves to continue to oppress African Americans. The 1994 crime bill is a prime example. This single piece of legislation insured that hundreds of thousands of African Americans would be enslaved once again in the form of the criminal justice system.

 Let’s go even further with VP Biden, in the 1970’s he vocally opposed busing in African American’s to white schools to start desegregation. This led to a starvation of funds in predominately African American schools, de facto segregation. In fact, in recently released letter’s it has become evident that VP Biden sought the support of Mississippi Senator James Eastland, a well known racist and Democrat who has quoted as saying on many occasions that blacks were an “inferior race”.

Biden had also co-written the Anti-Drug Abuse Act, during the crack epidemic. It amplified sentencing disparities between crack cocaine users, who were mostly Black, and powder cocaine users, who were mostly white. 

Strom Thurmon, a well known segregationist was eulogized by no other than Joe Biden. VP Biden called Thurmon a good friend and good man.

The 1994 crime bill has in fact been rectified but only through the efforts of the current Republican President, Donald J. Trump.  He passed the First Step Act, which freed many African Americans that had been harmed by the passing of the 1994 crime bill. He received the Bipartisan Justice Award in 2019 for passing the First Step Act.

During Trump’s time in office, he was able to reduce the unemployment rate to the lowest in history. Not just African-American but also latino. This was done primarily by loosening regulation, amongst other moves. By being pro police, he is acknowledging the importance of police protection in African-American communities, a belief shared with the vast majority of inner city families.

Let’s take a look at the African-American communities of today to see where they are better off for continuing to vote Democrat. Today, African-American communities are actually MORE violent than they were pre-Democrat rule. Violent crime grew 126% between 1960 and 1970. 

Major cities such as Seattle, Los Angeles, New York City and Detroit, all run by Democrat mayors continue in a deadspin due to complete lack of leadership and control in refusing to distinguish protestors from looters and rioters. This action alone has doubled violent crime in recent weeks to what it was just last year. This move was done primarily so as to not offend a base of supporters. This makes major cities once safe, in total disarray.  This makes the basic safety of its inhabitants purely political. These mayors simply refuse to stand up to the radicalized far left bringing lives, property and jobs to a halt, all for a vote.

Due to Democrat led legislation, more and more jobs have gone overseas, leaving major cities like Detroit and Chicago in a virtual tailspin with no hope of gaining ground unless that legislation is corrected. These major cities have been primarily in Democrat control for fifty years. 

Education is at the mercy of a Democrat controlled school board and Democrat controlled teachers union which continues to try to freeze out charter schools. This ensures that more and more students will have to go to poorly run public schools instead of schools run by volunteers and parents to insure a better education. This ensures that public school teachers, all union members continue to have sway in a teachers job security even when that teacher is not performing. By Democrats backing teachers unions, it guarantees the vote of these unions.Therefore improving chances of staying in power. A plan that continues to work.

Until we get rid of the bad teachers protected by these Democrat controlled unions, no inner city student will have a fair chance of ever getting a good education, getting into a good college and furthermore into a career that guarantees the ability for that student to excel at life. 

Education is the number one way out of poverty. African-Americans are not in poverty because of white people or Donald Trump, They are in poverty because a racist Democrat Party insures they will never have the means to escape through higher education. Lack of education leads to alcoholism, drug abuse, spousal abuse and a myriad of other problems, these problems are currently prevalent in the African-American communities in inner cities. In the first 5 years of the 60’s the economy was humming, adding nearly 7 million new jobs. Many of those going to African-Americans.

Low education also leads to more pregnancies out of wedlock. This leads to more than 70% of African-American children being born to single mothers with no father figure. Father figures are a necessity in the lives of children, paralleled to mothers. To go back to understanding this one just needs to read the Moynihan Report. Families shape their children’s character, instilling lifelong values needed for productive lives.

As a way to try to slow this problem, Democrat leaders in the major cities decided not to try to improve education but to offer alternatives to these single mothers in form abortion clinics. In 2015 a study showed that 78% of abortion clinics are within walking distance of minority neighborhoods. Abortion clinics are lauded by Democrats such as Nancy Pelosi. This ensures that by pretending to care about the rights of women in minority neighborhoods, it ensures the vote of inner city, predominantly African-American voters. 

In closing, the Democrat party has been playing hard working African-American for fools for more than 50 years, all by clouding the playing field, moving pawns around and saying things that they know that voting base wants to hear. All while doing nothing more than continuing the same racist behavior it did during Jim Crow and the Klan. The Democrat Party and Republican Party never “switched sides” as Democrat’s like to exclaim. They just got more artistic in hiding true intent. Until the African-American community wakes up and sees this, there is little hope in the pipeline. The problem is not white vs. black as Democrats want you to believe. That is nothing but a tactic of division, one they have used since the days of the Klan.
