Examining Black Loyalty to Democrats

Someone posted this video on Facebook the other day :

I see a lot of similar postings and I can usually ignore them but this one really made me angry so I had to write about it.

The author of the video asks : “Why is it that the majority of the black community consistently votes democratic?”

This seems like a silly question to ask, almost a redundant one.  In fact the only reason that someone would feel the need to ask this question is because they don’t agree with the commonly accepted answer and they want to tell you about it. Well, let’s see what he has to say.

The man in the video (Zo?) goes on and looks back at American history (to approximately the 1850′s I assume).  Some of his claims are as follows :

    1. Rednecks were not responsible for lynchings, democrats were.
    2. The KKK was founded by the Democratic party.
    3. democrats back then threatened people into voting back then.  (just like P-Diddy does today apparently)
    4. Anyone who says today “vote or die” or “Rock the Vote” is actually saying “vote democratic”
    5. We don’t learn this in schools because the unions and the democratic party control the schools
    6. democrats were the pro-slavery, pro-segregation, anti-civil rights party.

      Based on this the author again wonders why the majority of people vote democratic.

      He then goes on to speculate that it was because :

        1. Martin Luther King endorsed democrat John F. Kennedy for president.
        2. This happened because Robert Kennedy helped get MLK out of jail.
        3. Robert Kennedy also gave OK for MLK’s phone to be tapped.
        4. Martin Luther King was a Republican who did not endorse the Kennedy’s because MLK was a pastor who would not endorse candidates.
        5. Martin Luther King’s father was a Republican

          Then he admittedly recites a pretend situation where the Kennedy’s bribe/threaten/blackmail MLK’s family into getting their endorsement.

          His retelling of history continues :

            1. Senator JFK voted against the civil rights bill proposed by the republican President Eisenhower.
            2. Democrats did not like communism back in the 1960′s and then mentions that Hitler also did not like communism.
            3. Hating communism does not make you a conservative or a capitalist
            4. There is a conspiracy today to replace the word democrat in history books with the word conservative.
            5. This is similar to a “conspiracy” where the phrase “global warming” is replaced by the phrase “climate change”.
            6. Global warming is bunk because the author feels cool sometimes, people who believe in global warming just don’t understand the four seasons.
            7. President Truman (democrat) was a member of the KKK
            8. President Truman ended discrimination within the military and among government employees in order to cover up his membership in the KKK
            9. Truman refused to enforce the end of discrimination and it was Eisenhower (Republican) who actually did it.
            10. Any hesitation that Eisenhower had in desegregation of the military and schools was because he respected states rights.
            11. Eisenhower was correct to refuse to MLK’s pleas for more help in desegregating the south because it was MLK’s destiny to do that on his own.
            12. All accomplishments by democrats to progress civil rights were only to improve their own image, when republicans advanced civil rights they did it because it was the right thing to do.
            13. The democrats plan to improve their image was so successful that everyone was fooled.
            14. FDR’s entitlements also helped get many blacks to switch over to the democratic party.
            15. Democrats control the black community today by keeping them down and just giving them things once and awhile.

              The video then changes direction and starts to talk about Senator Robert Byrd, an ex KKK member who was recently in congress.  Some of the things that the author states about Robert Byrd are as follows :

                1. Democrats use “Sith mind tricks” on the public in order to get them to like Byrd.
                2. The only redeeming thing that Byrd did was to leave the KKK.

                  The author then switches back to talking about history and goes on to say :

                    1. Democrats take rights away from black people and republicans restore rights to blacks.
                    2. The advancement of civil rights under Johnson can be attributed to the Republicans in office.
                    3. Wilson and Democrats of today patronize the black community for their votes.
                    4. Wilson segregated the military and fired blacks from federal positions in the government
                    5. Wilson showed pro KKK movies in the white house.
                    6. The Bull Moose party was actually the Republican party so all good things Roosevelt did can be attributed to the Republican party.

                      Back the author then jumps to around the time of the civil war.

                        1. Democrats forced blacks to fight for the confederacy in the civil war.
                        2. Some blacks were fooled into thinking that the Union were the bad guys.
                        3. He makes a comparison today that blacks today are fooled into believing the Republicans are the bad guys much like some blacks in the civil war were fooled into thinking the union was the enemy.
                        4. Democrats today try and argue that Lincoln was indifferent to slavery.
                        5. People who don’t like Lincoln are siding with Democrats.

                          The author then goes back even further to then talk about Thomas Jefferson (a Democratic-Republican).

                            1. It was the republican in Thomas Jefferson who wrote the Declaration of Independence.
                            2. It was the democrat in Thomas Jefferson who owned slaves.

                              His rant continues and the following is verbalized

                              • Race baiting liberals keep suckering black people into voting for democrats because…
                                1. Republicans care about the constitution and democrats claim that the constitution states that a black person is less then a white person.
                                2. Public schools are a liberal indoctrination system

                                Now he jumps back to the founding fathers…

                                  1. The founding fathers who were pro slavery went on to form the democratic party
                                  2. The founding fathers who were anti-slavery went on to form the republican party

                                    Back to today..  whey do the blacks to today vote democratic? he asks

                                      1. Blacks have been fooled by the media, education system, and entertainment industry for the past 50 years and that is why they vote democratic.
