Kirsters Baish| Liberal America has a way of coming up with things to be mad about, then moving on to the next thing on their list when they don’t get their way. This time, they are angry about immigration policies. It all leads back to identity in politics, and the left are not going to be happy about their Party’s true identity.
We recently reported on Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a New York leftist who seems to support the same ideologies as Mao Zedong did in China during the 1960s. Ocasio-Cortez took Joseph Crowley’s seat last week during a New York state primary election.
Just take a look at this ridiculous tweet Ocasio-Cortez sent out this week:
3. Your attempt to strip me of my family, my story, my home, and my identity is exemplary of how scared you are of the power of all four of those things.
— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@Ocasio2018) July 1, 2018
The New York Democratic Socialist’s comment was made after people began looking into her claim that she was just a “girl from the Bronx.” The thing is, her story didn’t contain many facts, which is something liberals seem to be good at doing (you know, leaving out facts.) The problem with her story, like so many other liberals, is that when people began looking into her claims, she became offended, and for liberals it all goes back to one thing: racism. Ocasio-Cortez and her liberal cronies are now looking to abolish ICE, because they feel that the organization is “racist.”
The thing is that history paints a very different portrait of the Democratic Party than the one that modern day liberals want you to see. It’s interesting that Democrats are so dead set on “eliminating racism” in our country, when their Party is the one that enslaved African Americans for years.
This brings us to a controversial Civil War meme that has been going around. It speaks for itself.
The truth of the matter is that Democrats aren’t the loving and accepting group that they claim to be. Around a hundred and sixty years ago, in fact, the Democrats were enslaving African Americans, forcing them onto plantations in the South. The Democrats had control over the South, and they were set on keeping slavery very much alive.
Conservative Tribune reports:
A century ago, it was Jim Crow Dixie, still a Democrat fiefdom. African-Americans were second-class citizens, kept in place by segregation. They couldn’t vote, they couldn’t go to the same schools as whites and they had no civil control over their own destiny.
Once segregation began to melt thanks to the judiciary, things began to change — although the racist attitude sure didn’t. When Lyndon Baines Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act, he’s alleged to have said: “I’ll Have Those n*****s Voting Democratic for 200 Years.” That’s never been proven.
What we can document is his explanation for why he appointed Thurgood Marshall as the first black Supreme Court justice instead of a lesser-known jurist: “When I appoint a n***** to the bench, I want everybody to know he’s a n*****,” the president said, according to biographer Robert Dallek.
The Democrats’ fiefdom quickly moved from the “Solid South” to urban areas. There, segregation still existed, it was just by neighborhood. The trick this time is that both young white millennials drawn by the liberal, cosmopolitan atmosphere and minorities kept shackled to “entitlements” with little opportunity to escape both gave their votes to the Democrats.
Just think about the illegal immigrants flooding our country now. The Democrats promise to protect these people, but what they receive when they arrive here are sickeningly low wages. Congressional numbers are being screwed up. Our Electoral College is being screwed up. There is a demographic shift in our country, and the left is behind it. Why else would the left be so upset with the Trump administration for enforcing immigration laws that were already in place?
The truth is that the Democratic Party was the party of slavery. Unfortunately, sometimes the truth hurts.
