Did the Old Racist Democrats Become Today’s Republicans? (Urban Legend)

by David Gray, June 20, 2015


In last week’s video I talked about how the reason why Black Liberals call Black Conservatives and Republicans the name Uncle Tom is because they actually haven’t read the book Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe. But whenever Black Democrats are exposed to the racist history of the Democratic party, their learned response is is to repeat the urban legend that the political parties had switched. That at some point in history the racists Democrats became Republicans and the good Abe Lincoln Republicans became Democrats. Like everyone who was on the left in congress walked over to the right and everyone who was on the right walked over to the left. Sounds magical doesn’t it?

If only they could prove such a transfer of racism occurred, but they cannot. There was no time in history that Black Liberals can point to prove their claim that the racists Democrats became Republicans. But what these liberals are doing is pointing to two historical events that need a little more nuance and clarity, so that we might avoid any oversimplification that might lead us to believe that here was ever an actual shift in the racist agenda of the Democratic party. In this video I’m going to briefly clarify these two historical events and then come back to prove how the Democratic party imperialist agenda of suppression and control Africans and their descendants has never changed.

First, when they say that the original Republican party were liberals and the Democrats were conservatives what they are talking about is the economic shift in party platforms. It is absolutely true, originally the GOP consisted of many members of the former Whig party that was for big government and they were for government involvement in business (that meant they believed that the gov’t should take on financing infrastructure, education, protecting native industries, policies that promoted commerce and rapid job growth). In contrast, the Democrats in the 1800’s were a arty focused on keeping taxes low and when it came to promoting commerce, and generally speaking, they were the “states’ rights” party.

This gradual economic shift in party platforms occurred between 1860 and 1936 was primarily due to each party fighting for new constituents – a new voting block that was emerging in the west after new states came into the union after the civil war. They went after these votes. The Republican federal expansions in the 1860s and 1870s had turned out very favorable to big businesses such as banks, railroads, and manufacturing that were based in the northeast, while small-time farmers many who had gone west benefited very little from the republican federal expansion.

So what both parties attempted was to exploit the discontent in the west, by promising the little guy some of the economic gain that had gone to the business sector back east. Basically, Democrats won the west by promising them more help and infrastructure and funding. This caused the Republicans to adopt an economic counter-position of hands-off government – no longer pushing for government financed infrastructure building.

So here, even though there was a shift in economic platform – there was never a switch in allegiance. Democrats did not become Republicans and Republicans did not become Democrats. And clearly this economic shift did not change the imperialistic racist tactics of the Democratic party, because in the 1924 Democratic party presidential candidate John W. Davis argues in favor of “separate but equal”, In 1937 Republicans organized opposition to former Ku Klux Klansman and Democrat U.S. Senator Hugo Black who was appointed to U.S. Supreme Court by FDR; Black’s Klan background was hidden until after his confirmation. In 1944 the U.S. Supreme Court struck down Texas Democratic Party’s “whites only” primary election system.

THE SECOND historical event that liberals have turned into an urban legend or attempted to rewrite history is when a number of your southern racist Democrats stormed out of the 1948 Democratic Party national convention in Philadelphia over the party moved to ado[t a new platform to support civil rights. This group who called themselves the State’s Rights Democratic Party also known as the Dixiecrats decided to back Sen. Strom Thurmond in the 1948 election against the Democratic incumbent Truman and the Republicans Thomas Dewy.

Their southern strategy was to capture all 127 electoral college votes in the south so that they might prevent Truman or Dewey from having enough electoral college votes to become president. The Dixicrats planned to hold their votes hostage until either party promised to drop civil rights from their party platform. After this plot failed, all but three of the segregationist Democrats in the South went BACK to the Democratic party. Again ONLY 3 of those Dixiecrats became Republican. So there was never a magical switch of parties due to the Dixiecrat plot. That’s just another urban legend.

So here as late as 1948 there is no switch parties in regards to the imperial racist aggression against black Americans, but what about later? Well in 1957 Republican President Dwight Eisenhower passes the First Civil Rights Law in 82 years, with 92% Republican Support and only 54% Democratic Party Support (barely half). In 1960 President Eisenhower signs the Republicans’ Civil Rights Act, overcoming 125-hour, around-the-clock filibuster by 18 Senate Democrats. This civil rights act ended up passing with 93% of Republicans support to 68% of Democratic support. In 1964 The Civil Rights Act of passed mainly due to Republican Minority Leader Everett M. Dirksen’s perseverance. The Democrats filibustered it again, but it finally passes with 80% Republican party support and 63% Democratic Party support. The Voting Rights Act of 1965, abolishing literacy tests and other measures devised by Democrats to prevent Blacks from voting, was signed into law with again a higher percentage of Republicans than Democrats vote in favor.

So clearly as late as the 1965 the Democratic party are an in your face racists against Blacks, but after the 1970 we don’t hear much from them and they began recruiting Blacks into their party to run for office. Well, what happened? Did all of these racists all of a sudden die off or have an epiphany and stop being racists. No, what happened was that there was a change in their imperialist and racist tactics – due to the insertion of two new developments.

The first is that Abortion became legal and the Democrats adopted Margaret Sangers, Founder of Planned Parenthood’s, negro population control strategy to use birth control and abortion – eugenics – to keep the population of Blacks in this country to an insignificant level.

Forget about MLK Jr Dream. The only dream that came true was Margaret Sanger’s. Since 1973, 16,000 million black babies have been slayed through abortion – making abortion not only the #1 killer of Blacks in America, but only the #1 reason we are missing around 38 million Blacks who could be voting and impacting society. Abortion has been far more successful that the Democrats KKK party could have ever dreamed of, and the Democrats have back Planned Parenthood and the Black abortion genocide 110%. Even in 2011 Barack Obama threatened to shut down the government if the Republicans took out Planned Parenthood half a million dollar subsidy out of the federal budget.

The second thing that changed was integration – When Blacks learned that they could move next to whites the educated and business owner class left the Black community for greener pastures, but that left a leadership vacuum back in the Black community that made it ripe for destruction. Insert into this community welfare and food stamps as the new economic slavery and tool to get the black woman to prefer the government over a husband and to establish a cycle of poverty in poor black families. Also inserts drugs into that community and by the 90’s you have a Black Out-of-Wedlock Birthrate has grown to 70%, 1/3 of Black males incarcerated, Exceeding Black male college enrollment, HIV destroying inner cities.

Usually when we think of imperialist we think of those who have used military force to conquer and rule a nation – the roman empire, byzantine empire and the British empire come to mind, but there is another form of imperialism which lasts much longer because it conquers the mind. The base ideal of imperialism is race superiority. Whatever that race is – it believes that it has a right to rule those it conquers. Imperialism says that I know better for you than you know for yourself.

For nearly 300 years the Democratic party has exercised a psychological imperialism over Blacks in America. They know better for us than we know for ourselves, and we have allowed them to govern us – to feed us – to clothe us – and to shelter us. And we’ve allowed them to scare us – first with whips and chains – then with the KKK and Jim Crow – then with scary boogy man lies about the GOP and how they hate Blacks.

The Democratic party has not changed. There was no switch. All they changed was their tactics. Like Margaret Sanger advised them to, they got a few blacks on their team – preachers preferably – those who you would believe and trust and they used them to get you back on their plantation so they could rule you as imperialist do. And they have. Now look you. Your worse off now than you were when they had you on their cotton fields. As Malcolm X said in 1964 and I’ll play the whole segment after I’m done, you people who vote for Democrats are Chumps and Traitors to your Race. They make you promises and break them, but you STILL put them back in office. You’re a Chump!

    Thanks David. I fear though that this side of Glory, we'll not see an improvement in minority social, emotional, and financial well-being. The race hustlers (along with the MSM) have done their job well. Most minorities (it seems) are inured to the lies of the left, and so will not see the truth that is so plainly in front of them...

    • Thanks Jonno. I agree. The cloud is thick and the fog is heavy. Hard for light to pierce.

    It is amazing watching my 15 year old son go through the education process in Kansas. Lots of red flags in "Civics," but having a teacher come out and say capitalism does not work, disagreement with Obama makes you a racist and selective immigration is genocide does not lend any hope. The "switch" argument should never have to be addressed as it never happened. Amazing. Thanks DavidLGray, you are becoming a valuable resource. It is not my job to teach the teacher, but it is my job to make sure my son learns the truth.
