Not long ago I participated in a discussion about the terrible damage caused by the Democratic Party, and how it is difficult to think about it without feeling hatred for those who are destroying an entire nation. How can you not feel hatred - for an organization which for a century and a half now has caused such misery and destruction, and whose rare and always flatfooted efforts at doing good always causes even greater misery?
This site has focused on African Americans since they more than anyone else have suffered from the corruption, arrogance and plain evil of the Democratic Party. The Democrats and African Americans have a long, long, long history together, dating back when the Democrats were the party of the slave owning antebellum South, as well as in the post civil war South of Jim Crow, segregation and lynchings. Through it all the Democratic Party held sway over an entire region whose way of life was premised on the worst sort of racist repression. In the north, the Democrats became associated with big city corruption, and in an ironic twist, with the social policies of Franklin Roosevelt, among others. Somehow an evil partnership developed between the politicians of the urban north who used liberal policies to advance corrupt agendas, and virulently racist Southern Democrats. This has changed of course - the Republicans are now the leading party of the South and include many former Democrats. However, the racist policies of Southern Democrats has never been adopted by the Republicans, despite nonsense from the Democrats to the contrary - indeed what else would you expect Democrats to say about the loss of the South?
Nevertheless, the reasons the whites left and continue to abandon the Democrats is not because of racial politics, instead it is leftist policies, which it is plain to to anyone with a brain and without a corrupt agenda has caused misery and destruction everywhere these policies are implemented. In other words, the racist policies of the Southern Democrats were left at the door when they joined the Republicans - indeed, this was the basis upon which Democrats were allowed to join. However, in the Democrats twisted view, refusal by Republicans in the South (or anywhere else) to commit to liberal polices which resulted in the ruin of northern blacks is coincident with racism.
Of course, Democrats refuse to admit to or apologize for their past (and continuing) racist repression of blacks and partnership with segregationist Southern Democrats. For the Democratic controlled media more grounded in "1984" than anything else, history is meaningless - in fact according to this media, the racist, repressive policies of the old and new South has always been Republican.
Welcome to Orwellian modern America.
Through most of American history, the Democratic Party has been a pestilence on the African American people. And it is in the Democratic treatment of African Americans that one can see the outlines of the Democratic plan for the country as a whole. It has not been lost on the Democrats that in return for imposition of dependence, joblessness, crime, lack of education and misery, African Americans have rewarded Democrats with close to 100% of the vote. In an ultimate irony the Democrats have seen in their destruction of the African American community, a scheme for the rest of the country, starting with Latinos and poor whites. It's goal is power for the few in return for misery for many, and it is based on abuse of the best impulses in those remaining. It is a plan premised on the Democratic Party's corruption, arrogance and an endless, unquenchable thirst for power.
So, how precisely should we react to an organization whose goal is the ruin of a free people? The Democrats, having relied on using the charitable impulses of those whom they seek to destroy and have endeavored to corrupt, perhaps are not prepared for disgust at their arrogance and delight in destruction.
