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.

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/

After three years of apocalyptic wailing and gnashing of environmentalist teeth over President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the job and economy killing Paris Climate Accord, it is ironic that the one country that faces the brunt of criticism from climate change zealots such as Greta Thunberg is leading the world and the European Union in lowering emissions and promoting cleaner energy, such as natural gas, all the while not hurting the economy:

It wasn’t 2012 Presidential loser Mitt Romney’s faith that caused him to vote to impeach President Trump, whom he once begged to rescue him from political oblivion. While Romney, who undoubtedly entertained visions of succeeding a President Trump after his vote helped remove from office, says it was his faith that caused him to believe Trump really did abuse his power to pressure the Ukrainians to dig up dirt on the Bidens, more likely it was because that Romney wanted to put an end to an administration that might expose his link to the Bidens and Burisma,

Vermont’s Socialist and presidential wannabe, Sen. Bernie Sanders, in a bill introduced last week that Rep.

Like fellow political lemmings Elizabeth Warren and Michael Bloomberg, Sanders has swallowed the lies the greenies have fed him about fracking, as shown in a statement he released supporting his legislation shortly before the disastrous Iowa caucuses:
Schiff Hides Transcript to Protect 'Whistleblower' 16 replies

“Evidence and witnesses!” is the constant refrain from the House impeachment managers like Rep. Adam “Shifty” Schiff and Rep. Jerry “Jabba” Nadler even as Schiff had hidden evidence in the form of the transcript for his star-chamber interview with ICIG Michael Atkinson and block witness in the person of himself and the Ukraine phone call whistleblower. The hypocrisy of it all is underscored by the fact that by hiding the whistleblower and the details of his initial contacts with Schiff and the ICIG, Schiff and the House managers are denying President Trump a basic constitutional right -- the right to confront one’s accuser.

President Trump on Friday becomes the first U.S. President to attend the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., a march he previously addressed via video, a march sure to be ignored by the lamestream media or downplayed as a gathering of white supremacists. It reflects his belief that every human life begins at conception and is a gift from God and reflects the fear, an unspoken motive for impeachment, that Trump will get to appoint more Supreme Court justices forming a majority to overturn the wrongly decided Roe V. Wade, another SCOTUS decision which, like Dred Scott, declared an entire class of people as less than human.

This was just the latest addition to a cluster of troubling events.
