Legislation proposed in the U.S. House of Representatives calls out Democrats for their historical track record supporting racial segregation and requires the party to change its name or prohibits their participation in Congress. Democrats continue to blame everyone but themselves for their long-standing disgraceful past beliefs and actions on racial segregation. The Democratic Party must stop pointing fingers, respond to the facts spelled out in the text of the legislation below and bring an end to their anti-American beliefs, political rhetoric and atrocities.
One, that the Speaker of the House of Representatives shall remove any item that names, symbolizes, or mentions any political organization or party that has ever held a public position that supported slavery or the Confederacy, from any area within the House wing of the Capitol or any House office building, and shall donate such item or symbol to the Library of Congress.”
“Two, that any political organization or party that has ever held a public position that supported slavery or the Confederacy shall either change its name or be barred from participation in the House of Representatives.”
“Whereas, the 14th Amendment, giving full citizenship to freed slaves, passed in 1868 with 94 percent Republican support, 0 percent Democratic support in Congress; the 15th Amendment, giving freed slaves the right to vote, passed in 1870 with 100 percent Republican support and 0 percent Democratic support in Congress.”
“Whereas, Democrats systematically suppressed African Americans’ right to vote, and by specific example in the 1902 constitution of the State of Virginia actually disenfranchised about 90 percent of the Black men who still voted at the beginning of the 20th century and nearly half of the White men. The number of eligible African-American voters were thereby forcibly reduced from about 147,000 in 1901 to about 10,000 by 1905; that measure was supported almost exclusively by Virginia Democrats.”
“Whereas, in 1912, Democratic President Woodrow Wilson’s administration began a racial segregation policy for U.S. Government employees, and by 1914, the Wilson administration’s civil service instituted the requirement that a photograph be submitted with each employment application. “
“Whereas, the 1924 Democratic National Convention convened in New York City at Madison Square Garden; the convention commonly was known as the ‘‘Klan-Bake’’ due to the overwhelming influence of the Ku Klux Klan in the Democratic Party.”
“Whereas, in 1964, the Democratic Party led a 75-calendar-day filibuster against the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Whereas, leading the Democrats in their opposition to civil rights for African Americans was a member of the Democratic Party, Senator Robert Byrd from West Virginia, who was a known recruiter for the Ku Klux Klan. Whereas, Democrats enacted and enforced Jim Crow laws and civil codes that forced segregation and restricted freedoms of Black Americans in the United States.”
Expose the hypocrites!
