“THOSE THAT CRITICIZE OTHERS, REVEAL WHAT THEY THEMSELVES LACK.”
Democrats (Blue) vs Republicans (Red):
This is not intended to be that of a slam on Liberals, as much as just pointing out the hypocrisy. Republicans have a long history of being civil rights champions, that all men are created equal (as per biblical origin and being a strong biblical party), the Democratic Party has a long history of racism, slavery, lynching, segregation, and oppression. Their narrative today is that Republicans are fascists, racists, misogynists, homophobes, sexists, xenophobes, and so on. The Democratic parties’ own website completely ignores the first 100+ years of its racist legacy. This page is simply intended as a counter to that narrative hypocrisy of its recent switch to racial inclusion.

- 1919 NAZI GERMANY – Liberal Shared Agenda:
Liberals and Nazis believe in certain concepts they hold in common, such as “the common good”.
Both modern so-called “liberals” and Nazis were collectivists, believing that the “group” was more important than the “individual”.
As a result, both liberals and Nazis called for big government programs, many of the welfare programs like Social Security, public education, and economic “rights” such as the right to a livelihood (“living wage”).
Here is a LINK to some points from the Nazi Party platform which many modern liberals agree with.
Simply switch out references for “Jew” with “Blacks” and you’ll start seeing the correlations between Nazi and Liberal perspectives.

- 1956 : School Choice – Further evidence of democratic racism
Want more evidence Democrat leaders are still racist? How about this New York Times (a liberal newspaper) pointing out that rich Democrats are against better housing and “school choice” because they want to keep their neighborhoods ‘safe’:

If you have believed in the party switch myth then you’ve succumbed to a rebranding attempt by Democrats leadership. They were embarrassed that their party supported slavery. They were the party of physical slavery and today they are keeping the chains of mental slavery. They haven’t changed. The “parties switched myth” as well as the media push to destroy civil war monuments, is a result of a Democratic attempt to hide a racist history of slavery, of lynching, of segregation, of oppression, and nearly every civil rights legislation in our history.
- 1965: Republicans pass the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

- 2020: Riots and Statues Democrats feel it is ok to be violent and destructive during protests. Is that the act of a peaceful political party?
- Throughout the riots, statues are being tumbled as a political statement about racist history. As stated earlier, the democrats ‘were’ the racists, and they are the ones taking them down, in effect erasing their history. How much more obvious does this need to me?
Republican Perspective: If the racism is forgotten, how will our children know it was wrong without examples to reflect on? How will the children’s’ children learn?
2021: Joe Biden’s Long History of Racism:
- In 1977, he said that forced busing to desegregate schools would cause his children to “grow up in a racial jungle.”
- Biden calls white supremacists senators his friends.
- In 2010, he warmly eulogized Sen. Robert Byrd, a former Exalted Cyclops in the Ku Klux Klan, saying he was “one of my mentors” and that “the Senate is a lesser place for his going.”
- He once called state-mandated school integration “the most racist concept you can come up with,”
- Barack Obama is “the first sort of mainstream African American who is articulate and bright and clean.”
- He was a staunch opponent of “forced busing” in the 1970s,
- He lead the crusader for mass incarceration throughout the ‘80s and ‘90s.
- “Rambling Joe” Biden (yes that was his nickname) has described African-American felons as “predators” too sociopathic to rehabilitate
- In 2006, he said, “You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent.”
- More on his work with segregationist senators to oppose that mandatory busing, which decades later led to the strongest moment in Kamala Harris’s campaign for president, when she blasted him as having personally impacted her as a young girl.
- And over the course of his entire career, he had kind words to say about staunchly segregationist senators.
- Any one of these statements or episodes would have been enough to sink the political career of any conservative in Washington, D.C., against whom tenuous accusations of racism are commonplace and occur almost daily. But Joe Biden, who has a lifetime of them, is now president of the United States.
Above: Dr. Carol Swain, former professor of Political Science from Vanderbilt University explains the inconvenient truth about the Democratic party.
Closing thoughts…We are one race: the human race. I honestly feel the whole democrat vs republican thing is just a means to divide and conquer the people. A way to distract and manage us. However, the Democrats need to stop calling the Republicans racist, to which I personally take offense to, as a right-leaning moderate. Let’s discuss the issues and not the color of our skin. We need our history to learn from. You must consider that democrats want to destroy monuments, in order to hide their own racist history from the voters they hope to lure. Stop destroying monuments, educate people about them, they are what brought us here today.
