December 6, 1865 was Liberation Day. It was on that day that America’s period of black enslavement, which lasted 246 years, officially came to an end. Now, 151 years later, the Democratic Party is still trying to make slavery an issue. Probably they will still being playing the race card when the 3016 election rolls around. Why? Simple. A Democrat could not be elected without using a devise tactic that enrages the emotions of minority groups.
Sadly, the Democratic Party has done little to help minorities. In fact, unemployment is at an all-time high within the black community. Couple that with a reduction in spendable income and increased violence within urban areas (Chicago, Atlanta, Baltimore, New Orleans, etc.) the Democratic Party has in essence enslaved those they have duped into voting a Democratic ticket.
Prior to the election of Lyndon Johnson and his “Great Society” programs, 90% of black Americans had previously voted as Republicans. A work ethic was soon replaced by a welfare ethic, because it is difficult to turn down free stuff. And if black Americans believe LBJ was their friend, think again. His disdain for the black race is well documented; a president that had to be taught how to say the word “negro” because his mindset was more attuned to saying the other “n” word.
In a twist of fate, Democrats were handed the designation as Civil Rights advocates when in reality it was the GOP that shepherded the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965 through Congress and forced them onto President Lyndon Johnson’s desk. Johnson attached his name and his party to their legacy by signing them into law.
And historically, the Ku Klux Klan that was a significant Democratic constituency; helping to elect legislators, sheriffs, judges and mayors who went on to become Klan members. Meanwhile, Klansmen targeted white Republicans for being “n—- lovers” who wanted to help blacks secure their constitutionally guaranteed rights. Just as Democrats in the 1800s wanted to keep blacks on the plantation, Democrats today want to keep blacks on the voting plantation and they will utilize any rhetoric, incentives or promises to keep them on that plantation.
If Democrats wanted to titillate the emotions of voters then why not champion a minority that was enslaved for over 400 years and had 6 million of their race systematically exterminated by Nazi Germany? The horrors suffered by Jews far exceed the injustices that have befallen any other minority demographic. Why not play that race card? I mean, they had a candidate of Jewish heritage in Bernie Sanders who could have led the charge against past injustices. Ironically, the WikiLeaks email fiasco shows a bent by Democrat Party officials to actually suppress Sanders because of his Jewish heritage. But statistically most persons who identify themselves as Jewish already vote as Democrats because they too have been coerced by leftist rhetoric that would have them to believe the Christian platform of the Republican Party is anti-Semitic. This errant thinking has led Jewish voters to follow after a party that believes in nothing; hence, they feel more comfortable in a party that is devoid of Christian values or convictions.
Now the Democrats have nominated a woman as their candidate and yet there has not been one speaker at their convention to address the slavery that affects 20-30 million persons in the world today. According to the U.S. State Department, 600,000 to 800,000 people are trafficked across international borders every year, of which 80% are female and half are children; approximately 80% of human trafficking involves sexual exploitation, and 19% involves labor exploitation. Woah! A woman candidate avoiding the enslavement of woman! Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party have avoided the real issue of slavery, because in doing so it would shed light on Bill Clinton’s exploitation of young women throughout his political career.
So once again, the Democratic Party shirks its responsibility to address the evident and existing slavery in the world today and pin their hopes on once again regurgitating an issue that was settled over 151 years ago. Minority voters will continue to remain exactly where Democratic leadership wants them to remain; on the plantation of failed promises.
