Harriet Blows Away Democratic Racial Myths

Original Article

Posted By: shazbot123, 11/7/2019 4:57:03 AM

History, someone once said, is a lie agreed upon, and nowhere is that more self-evident than in accounts of America’s racial history as told by Democrats. Republicans are the party of racism and slavery when the historical record shows just the opposite to be true. As Thomas Sowell notes, Democrats value black votes but not black voters. Democrats need black voters to be fearful, angry, resentful and paranoid. Black votes matter. If Republicans could get 20 percent of black votes, the Democrats would be ruined.

I’m always befuddled why the Republican Party never points to the history of the dem party and drives it home day in and day out. Cowardice, as usual, I suspect.

“ Tubman would be the first African-American woman to appear on U.S. currency and the first woman in 100 years.” I guess Katko doesn’t remember the Susan B. Anthony dollar from the late 1970s- early 1980s.

Ernest Hollings is not the "current senior senator from South Carolina." He retired in 2005 and died earlier this year.

It appears that if you want alive people to pay reparations for what dead people did all registered dems need to pay the bill.

While we are considering actual history - it is important to realize that the Democrat Ruling Elite in the South passed poll taxes and literacy voting laws as much to disenfranchise poor whites as poor blacks. If you review the voting percentages (Using Federal Govt Data) - the drop in total voter turnout is much greater than the total number of black voters. The drop in voter turnout is two to three TIMES that number.

The Dems love to tout the fact that they "changed" their Party to accept Blacks, and to end the racial divide, and the Pubbiies refused to politically "Join Hands" with them. The only "Transformation" was in 1964 when LBJ passed legislation to essentially buy Black loyalty by distributing a pittance of taxpayer money, and allow Black Dems to be the overseers of the new Black Plantation, where the only thing harvested is votes.

And yet that "pittance" #6 mentions has cost this nation $22, 000, 000, 000, 000 for those black votes. It's called "The Great Society" and I submit that it has ruined the black family and poisoned racial relations. Let's pray that "Blexit" works.

I think Katko is right since the Susan B Anthony was considered coinage whereas the $20 bill is currency.

I am so sick and tired of hearing about how bad the Democratic Party treats its black voters. In this day and age, there is no reason why any black person should continue to be so ignorant about the history of the Democratic Party. In some ways, it is too bad they have the vote as I am also sick and tired of hearing how the Republican Party has to do more to reach out to black voters to convince them to vote R.

Dang - I came to this thread to see whether anybody could give a sensible critique of the movie, and no one did (at least so far), and the article was about history, not the film. That's fine. But I'd really like to know whether it's worth watching. For example, did Harriet's support of the Republican Party, or her use of firearms, ever get mentioned? I tried IMDB but there is only the usual mishmash of loved it or hated it with no reason applied... Is it a leftist remake or is it reasonably true to history? (So hard to find anything to go see these days.)

My wife and I saw the movie a couple of days ago. It was excellent. I felt it was a great portrayal of what she did, her use of firearms and her persistence in the face of all sorts of dangers. I would highly recommend it. It's also a very Christian movie, highlighting her constant prayer in the face of danger. Also how many of the slaves kept a steadfast faith in God throughout their ordeal. Go see it. You'll be impressed. And the SJW crowd will have their hair on fire if it's a big hit. I'm sure they'll try to ignore it or downplay its significance in history.

Rotten Tomatoes had a critic score of 73 and an audience score of 97, so I immediately knew that the left-leaning critics hated something about it.

A great article that lays out the truth about which party was the party of slavery and which party still inflicts damage on Blacks by condemning them to victimhood and failed policy. It is abhorrent that lies are told about the Republican party in seeking dem power. Republicans are the party of individual freedom and opportunity which is the ONLY path to success. Dems offer government thralldom at poverty levels. Blacks are awakening to this truth and that is a death knell for the dems. Dems keep talking about demographics being in their favor but they treat Blacks monolithically, as dem property, instead of as thinking people. The same is happening with Hispanics. The dems should be very, very afraid.

Where would black people (or anyone) hear about the history of the Democrat party? From the alphabet networks - no. From newspapers and magazines - no. From their high school or college history or social science textbooks - no. Where are the pictures of George Wallace (D) standing in the schoolhouse door? Where are the pictures of Bull Conner and the dogs and fire hoses he used to suppress civil rights demonstrations? Where are the accounts of the reason Lyndon Johnson gave for pushing the great Society? According to an eye witness he said "I'll have those (forbidden word for black people used by racists) voting democrat for 200 years" and numerous historians have LBJ on the record referring to the Civil Rights Act of 1957 as “the (forbidden word for black people used by racists) bill". Pictures of the KKK "klanbake" at the 1924 democratic convention? That the Klan was the military arm of the Democrat party in the south? All of this is carefully concealed. Sorta like the pictures of the buildings burning and collapsing and people dying on Sept 11, 2001/

Former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch was rightly slammed by Patricia Smith, mother of Sean Smith, a U.S. Foreign Service employee working in Benghazi, Libya, for daring to compare the dangers of a Trump tweet to the terrorist attack that killed her son Sean, Ambassador Chris Stevens, former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, and information officer Glen Doherty.

As Rep. Adam Schiff’s “sentence first, trial later” show trial of President Donald J. Trump reaches a so-called public hearing phase, we find the weaver of fables dictating what witnesses the GOP will be permitted to call based on a set of three qualifying question they must answer in advance. These questions ask, essentially, if the witnesses believe President Trump is guilty of pressuring Ukraine to dig up dirt on the Bidens in exchange for military aid. The GOP, it seems, will not be allowed to call witnesses who have testimony or evidence to the contrary, that there was no pressure and no quid pro quo.

Upset at what he called preconditions imposed by the National Football League, quarterback Colin Kaepernick at the last minute moved his scheduled tryout on Saturday away from the Atlanta Falcons training facility to a local high school where media could attend. The former starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers is seeking a return to the NFL three years after his protests against racial injustice roiled the sport. He has contended that teams would not sign him because they wanted to distance themselves from the protests, which U.S. President Donald Trump blasted as unpatriotic and disrespectful.

She even found him guilty of confessing to bribery. Who knew Pelosi, at her advanced age, could perform so many contortions?

Until a month or so ago, virtually no one outside of the seven circles of hell that is the State Department had heard of Marie Yovanovitch. Even the intrepid John Solomon had not heard of her until March of this year. He had interviewed Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko who told him that Yovanovitch gave him a "do not prosecute" list the first time he met with her. He was angered by her list which he justifiably saw it as interference in Ukraine's government. He felt she was meddling in their anti-corruption investigations by telling him who should not be investigated.

TAMPA — From the moment the NFL announced its hasty plan for a Colin Kaepernick workout this weekend, the questions have been flying. After all this time, why the sudden rush? Did some team request this? How many general managers will show up? Is this simply a ploy for atonement by the NFL? Yet, around here, a more important question needs to be asked: Can Kaepernick help the Buccaneers? It’s an interesting and legitimate question with, at this point, no clear answer. Kaepernick has not been in an NFL uniform in nearly three years so it’s worth wondering if his skills have atrophied.

Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden told President Trump to “shut up” after the commander in chief asked the Supreme Court to bar the release of his tax returns. Biden, the former vice president, referenced Trump’s repeated calls to stop corruption in countries like Ukraine, which has become the center of the current impeachment inquiry. “@realDonaldTrump, release your taxes or shut up about corruption,” Biden tweeted on Thursday night. Trump’s lawyers sent a petition to the Supreme Court on Thursday, urging them to hear an appeal after a ruling from a federal appeals court in Manhattan.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick's entry into the 2020 Democratic presidential race is drawing renewed scrutiny toward his efforts to oust officials who had tried to put his brother-in-law, a convicted rapist, on the state's sex offender registry. Patrick's brother-in-law Bernard Sigh was first convicted of spousal rape in 1993 and was again convicted of raping Patrick's sister earlier this year, The Washington Post reported. Patrick in 2014 said that he had forced out two Sex Offender Registry Board officials over their attempts to overturn a hearing officer's decision to keep Sigh off the registry, arguing that the officials' actions were not appropriate, according to the Post.

The Ruling Class hates the lesser mortals who populate the realm they think they rightly rule. When Flyover Country forced Donald Trump on them as president, the outrage that was born of the initial shock grew into outright disdain for those put him into power. Senior Deep State bureaucrats like Peter Strzok and Lisa Page may be able to smell Trump supporters at Walmart, but for really intense class snobbery, there are few places that do it better than Harvard. At Harvard, few professors carry more political cachet than Laurence Tribe, who holds the title “University Professor,” (a very big deal at Harvard) and teaches constitutional law at Harvard Law School.

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who has been stalling in polls, announced a two-step plan Friday aimed at escaping from the healthcare trap she has gotten herself in. But in reality, the new proposal is likely to blow up in her face. To this point in her presidential campaign, Warren has allied with Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont to stake out an extreme position by insisting that anything short of a $34 trillion overhaul of the U.S. healthcare system, which would require kicking 180 million people off of private insurance, was insufficient. In doing so, she has railed against plans from other candidates, including former Vice President Joe Biden

'And I must confess to you that when I hear a speech someone responsible for order or for a government, I think of speeches by Hitler in 1934, 1936,' he said, departing from his prepared address.
