The Left and the Democrat Socialist Party have been hammering home that all of our founding fathers were a bunch of fat old white European slobs who all owned slaves.
This is part of the lies that the Left, the willing college professors and educators have been telling us since mid-1950.
Yet when presented with the facts they attack us conservatives. They call us racist.
Yet the real home of racism is the Democrat Socialist Party.
Robert “Sheet’s Bird was a Klansmen. Governors George Wallace and Georgia Governor Lest Maddox were well known Democrats who were racists.
Maddox owned a restaurant in Georgia who refused service to blacks and drove them out with an axe handle and legs from tables with nails in them.
Maddox was Governor of Georgia from 1967-1971.
If one looks at the history of the south many of these men were Democrats.
Here is a list of follow laws the Democrats were opposed to: the following information was taken from Wayne Perryman’s Unfounded Loyalty.
Civil Rights Act 1866
Reconstruction Act of 1867
Freedman Bureau Extension Act of 1866
Enforcement Act of 1870
Force Act of 1871
Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871
Civil Rights Act of 1875
Civil Rights Act of 1957
Civil Rights Act of 1960
And during the 60’s many Democrats fought hard to defeat the
1964 Civil Rights Act
1965 Voting Rights Acts
1972 Equal Employment Opportunity Act
Here’s a real shocker for those who blindly believe the Democrat Socialist Party;
History reveals that it was three white persons that opposed the Democrat’s racist practices who started the NAACP.
Dr. Martin Luther King, several Civil Rights leaders and many historians reported that during the first two years of his administration, President John F. Kennedy ignored Dr. King’s request for Civil Rights. The chronicles of history reveal that it was only after television coverage of riots and several demonstrations did President Kennedy feel a need to introduce the 1963 Civil Rights Act. At that time, experts believe the nation was headed toward a major race war.
History reveals that it was Democratic Attorney General, Robert Kennedy that approved the secret wire taps on Dr, Martin Luther King Jr., and it was Democratic President Lyndon Johnson that referred to Dr. King as ” that nigger preacher.” Senator Byrd referred to Dr. King as a “trouble maker” who causes trouble and then runs like a “coward,” when trouble breaks out.
Over the strong objections of racist Republican Senator Jessie Helms, Republican President Ronald Reagan, signed into law, a bill to make Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday a national holiday. Several Republican Senators convinced President Reagan this was the right thing to do.
Wayne Perryman wrote this: The racism established and promoted by members of the Democratic Party affected and infected the entire nation from 1856 with the Dred Scott decision, to the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education case. But they never offered or issued an apology.
Today both parties must remember their past. The Democrats must remember the terrible things they did to Blacks and apologize and the Republicans must remember the terrific things they did for Blacks and re-commit to complete the work that their predecessors started and died for.
Now tell me who are the real racists.
What part of true don’t you understand?
How many of you heard of Richard Allen.
Here is a short history of this man.
The following information is taken from Net state.com
Born: February 14, 1760
Place: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Died: March 26, 1831
Place: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Richard Allen was born on February 14, 1760 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was born into slavery; his family was the property of a wealthy Philadelphia lawyer, Benjamin Chew. As a child, Richard Allen and his family were sold to Stockley Sturgis, a plantation owner in Delaware. Apparently, Sturgis was somewhat of a benevolent master, and allowed Allen to learn to read and write. Through his reading, Allen became interested in religion, and again with the permission of Sturgis, he attended local Methodist meetings until other townspeople objected. Sturgis then allowed Methodist meetings on his own plantation and Allen soon found that preaching was his calling, and is said to have influenced Sturgis’ own conversion to the Methodist religion. In 1783, Richard Allen purchased his freedom, and moved back to Philadelphia.
In Philadelphia, Richard Allen began preaching the Gospel when he could gather groups of black men and women, and he regularly worshipped in the Methodist church. However, he and other black worshippers faced opposition from some of the established white members of the church. Instead of forcing the issue, Allen left the Methodist congregation and in 1787 he began founding his own congregation where people could worship without restriction and harassment. Allen and his followers created the Free African Society to serve their religious needs. As the free black population of Philadelphia grew, Richard Allen continued to devote his efforts to bringing increasing numbers of black people into the Methodist religion. In 1816 Allen established the African Methodist Episcopal Church. On April 11 of that year Allen was named the church’s first bishop.
Richard Allen continued preaching throughout his life. He was widely recognized as the unofficial leader of free black people in Philadelphia and beyond, bringing them into the folds of the African Methodist Episcopal Church, and actively working to improve their conditions and place in society. A man of rock-solid faith and stamina, Richard Allen died in 1831.
Many black men fought next to their white counter parts at Bunker Hill yet none of this is taught in schools. This taken from Footnote.com
“A Brave and Gallant Soldier”
Salem Poor earned his place in history. during “the Battle of Charleston”-known today as the Battle of Bunker Hill. In this battle, African Americans suffered more than 1,000 casualties. At the Battle of Bunker Hill, Salem Poor performed so well that fourteen officers sent a petition to the Massachusetts legislature declaring that he behaved like an experienced officer, as well as an excellent soldier and added that “a reward was due to so great and distinguished a character.”
In the Massachusetts State Archives is a petition to the General Court of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, stating that in the “late Battle at Charlestown. ” a man from Colonel Frye’s Regiment “behaved like an experienced officer” and that in this man “centers a brave and gallant soldier.” This document, dated December of 1775, just six months after the Battle of Bunker Hill, is signed by fourteen officers who were present at the battle, including Colonel William Prescott. Of the 2,400 to 4,000 colonists who participated in the battle, no other man is singled out in this manner.
This hero of the Battle of Bunker Hill is Salem Poor, of Andover, Massachusetts. Although documents show that Poor, along with his regiment and two others, were sent to Bunker Hill to build a fort and other fortifications on the night of June 16, 1775, we have no details about just what Poor did to earn the praise of these officers. The petition simply states “to set forth the particulars of his conduct would be tedious.” Perhaps his heroic deeds were too many to mention.
Few details of this hero’s life are available to us. Born a slave in the late 1740s, Poor managed to buy his freedom in 1769 for 27 pounds, which represented a year’s salary for the typical working man. He married Nancy, a free African American woman, and they had a son. Salem Poor left his wife and child behind in May 1775 and fought for the patriot cause at Bunker Hill, Saratoga, and Monmouth. We can only speculate about the motives for Poor’s sacrifice: was it patriotism, a search for new experience, or the prospect of a new and better life? The Battle of Bunker Hill was a daring and provocative act against established authority; all who participated could well have been hanged for treason. Shut out from many opportunities in colonial society, Salem Poor chose to fight for an independent nation. In the words of Harriet Beecher Stowe the bravery of Poor and other African American soldiers “has a peculiar beauty and merit.”

Doctor Benjamin Rush owned slaves however he became an ardent abolitionist. The following information is taken from New World Encyclopedia.
As a prominent Presbyterian doctor and professor of chemistry in Philadelphia, Benjamin Rush provided a bold and respected voice against the slave trade which could not be ignored. The highlight of his involvement to abolish slavery could be the pamphlet he wrote that appeared in Philadelphia, Boston, and New York City in 1773, entitled, An Address to the Inhabitants of the British Settlements in America, upon Slave-Keeping. In this first of his many attacks on the social evils of his day, he not only attacked the slave trade, but the entire institution of slavery.
In 1787, Rush became an ardent abolitionist after having a dream in which the ghost of Saint Benezet, who had died in 1784, came walking down the beach to meet a group of Africans who had been relating stories about the horrors of slavery to Rush. He awoke from the dream determined to fill the gap left by Benezet’s death. Though still a slave owner himself, in 1788, he also promised freedom to his slave, William Grubber. He co-founded, served as secretary, and later president (1803-13) of America’s first abolitionist society named the Pennsylvania Abolition Society. Anything less than freedom for all men, black and white, would, he knew, give the lie to the Republican idealism of 1776.
In his efforts to aid Philadelphia’s black community, Rush was heavily involved in promoting the African Church. He also recruited Richard Allen, Absalom Jones, and other blacks to help him attend the sick during the yellow fever epidemic of 1793.
Rush argued scientifically that Negroes were not by nature intellectually or morally inferior. Any apparent evidence to the contrary was only the perverted expression of slavery, which “is so foreign to the human mind, that the moral faculties, as well as those of the understanding are debased, and rendered torpid by it.”
Rush died in 1813, just as his former pupil, Charles Caldwell, was gaining national recognition for his theories on innate racial differences and the inferiority of Africans and their descendants—a position that Rush had spent much of his life attempting to disprove to a young America, paving the way for the eventual realization for humankind to surrender prejudice to the universal truth that “all men are created equal.”
