The REAL history of racism in America

For a long time I’ve been formulating a plan on how to take back the black voters in America.  At one time blacks voted overwhelmingly for Republicans.  They knew the truth about who the Democrats really were.  That all changed when Lyndon Johnson figured out the best way to steal the black vote was to enslave them to government programs that mired them in poverty, but made them think getting something for nothing was good for them.

The following history of Democrat racism was compiled by a freed black journalist named Bob Parks.  He will, of course, be ostracized for leaving the plantation:

Contract With America, becomes law.

And let’s not forget the words of liberal icon Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood…

“We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with
social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most
successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious
appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the
Negro population.”

So the next time any Democrat claims they’ve been supportive of civil
rights in America (and been so all along), ask them to explain their
past. “We’ve grown” is not gonna cut it, considering they continue to
lie about their past to this day, and only someone lacking in common
sense would believe two distinct political parties could juxtaposition
their stances on civil rights seemingly overnight.

And I’m tired of the recitation that Southern Democrats became racist
Republicans and took those tendencies with them. Even today, it never
takes long for a Democrat to play the race card purely for political
advantage.

“The truth will set you free.”-Martin Luther King, Jr., Conservative registered Republican.
