Once upon a time, the Democratic Party stood for slavery, racism, segregation and oppression. No, I'm not talking about 1860, when the Democrats ran dead opposed to Abraham Lincoln, the first Republican President. It was actually about this time two years ago, as a matter of fact, when then-Senator and presidential candidate, Joe Biden, called then-Senator and presidential opponent Barack Obama, "...the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy..." Yeah, he really said that, though many of you probably forgot.
And it was just a few years before that, in 2004, when then-presidential candidate Howard Dean (D-VT), decided that he "want(ed) to be the candidate for guys with Confederate flags in their pickup trucks". The following year, after being crowned Chairman of the Democrat National Committee, Dean remarked "Do you think the Republican National Committee could this many people of color in one room? Maybe if they had the hotel staff in here!" Ha! Wow, Mr. Dean, you were really sharp that night.
Not to be outdone today's Senate Majority Leader, Democrat Harry Reid of Nevada, has been revealed to have said during the 2008 presidential election that Barack Obama should run because he is a "light skinned" black "with no negro dialect unless he wanted to have one." Now, that's what I call racist...or, as liberals are calling it, racially "insensitive".
After years of being told that the GOP is the racist party, perhaps we can now admit the truth. The Republican Party not only is not the racist party, it's not even as racist as the Democrat Party. Yes, it is true that the Democrat Caucus in Congress contains more black people, but Democrats are so scared of intellectual black people they elect complete idiots like Maxine Waters and Sheila Jackson-Lee or criminals like William Jefferson. Even the only black man they ever considered "presidential material" is Barack Obama, the biggest buffoon of all time. At least black Republicans are people like Clarence Thomas and Colin Powell and Condi Rice.
It took Republicans to end slavery, segregation and discrimination. And now it will take Republicans to end the drumbeat of racist Democrats and their seething hatred of decent black people.
