I know I shouldn’t pay attention to this guy but sometimes you have to combat lies with truth and keep pounding away!
Here’s my question to Mr Rangel. Did you have another memory lapse? The Dixiecrats were an offshoot of the Democrat Party plain and simple. Democrats were the party of slavery, believers in white supremacy, the authors of the Black Codes & Jim Crow laws, & the founders of the Ku Klux Klan.
However, after passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, they changed tactics, because they could no longer suppress African Americans’ (“AAs”) vote. From then on, they welcomed AAs to their party & won their vote by giving them entitlement crumbs & blaming the AAs’ malaise on the GOP.
But Democrats have to ensure AAs never improve their socioeconomic position in society. Otherwise, the Democrats cleverly crafted strategy would start to fall apart. Because if AAs ever became successful, they might become Republicans.
Since 1980, Americans’ socioeconomic mobility has decreased by one-third as Democrats work tirelessly to create a caste system in America in order to preserve their base.
Nevertheless, the Democrat Party has captured almost the entire AA vote, promising them the moon, but delivering only enough crumbs to ensure future loyalty. Now, government is AAs’ new master, with the help of black overseers (like Charlie) that promote loyalty in AA communities in exchange for money, power, & position for themselves.
The Tea Party believes the Democrats are putting people on “The Road to Serfdom.” And the results back them up.
I think it is refreshing to hear a senior Democrat finally acknowledge the racist and discriminatory heritage of his party…one, I might add, that extends back to the Trail of Tears.
