DNC Website Embraces Dems Big Bold LIES

    Debbie Wassermann-Schultz, the DNC Chair, has created a website full of lies about past Democratic Party racism.

    Lie Number One: Check the "Our History" section of the DNC's website. See it? The history section -- now written to reflect the history of the Obama administration -- begins with this breathtakingly bold lie:

    For more than 200 years, our party has led the fight for civil rights…..

    Lie Number Two:
    Then see the DNC's "Issues" section on civil rights. That section begins with a second bold lie. This one:

    Democrats have a long and proud history of defending Civil Rights and expanding opportunity for all Americans.

    The DNC website in both its history and issues sections is literally wiped clean of any reference that this is the party that spent platform after platform after platform building a culture of racism.

    Playing the race card, as it is politely called today.

    There is zero indication on the revamped DNC website that not only are those first lines in each section blatant untruths, but that in those "more than 200 years" the party was a ferocious supporter of every race-judging idea imaginable, including slavery, segregation, and lynching.

    Kaine even agreed to a short video version that begins by briefly saying:

    "Democrats are the party of Jefferson, who declared that we are all created equal. And we worked long and hard to make that real."

    The video immediately skips from Jefferson -- to the 1900s.

    Democrats Reality:

    · Supported slavery in 6 platforms from 1840-1860.

    · Opposed the 13th, 14th and 15th amendments to the Constitution that successively wiped out slavery and gave both legal rights and voting rights to black Americans.

    · Supported segregation actively or by silence in 20 platforms from 1868-1948.

    · Opposed anti-lynching laws, specifically supported by the GOP in four platforms between 1912 and 1928.

    · Opposed the GOP-sponsored Civil Rights Acts of 1866, which focused on legal equality for blacks.

    · Opposed the GOP on giving voting rights to blacks in the District of Columbia in 1867. The legislation was passed over the Democrats' objection..

    · Nominated an 1868 presidential ticket of New York Governor Horatio Seymour and ex-Missouri Congressman Francis Blair. The Democrats pledged they would declare the Civil Rights laws passed by the GOP "null and void" and would refuse to enforce them. They lost to Ulysses Grant.

    · Opposed the Enforcement Acts, three laws passed by the GOP between 1870 and 1871 targeting the rise of the Ku Klux Klan and making it a federal crime to block the right of blacks to vote, hold office, serve on juries and have equal protection of the laws with whites.

    · Opposed the GOP Civil Rights Act of 1875, which prohibited discrimination of blacks in public accommodations.

    · Used the Ku Klux Klan as what Columbia University historian Eric Foner calls "a military force serving the interests of the Democratic Party." Nor is there reference to University of North Carolina historian Allen Trelease's description of the Klan as the "terrorist arm of the Democratic Party." Nor is there mention of the infamous 1924 Democratic Convention -- the "Klanbake" as it is known to history because hundreds of the delegates were Klan members. The Klan-written platform mixed the traditional Democratic message of progressivism and racism in the Klan-written platform.

    · Repealed the Civil Rights laws enacted by GOP Congresses and presidents, already damaged by the Supreme Court. When Democrats gained control of both Congress and the White House in 1892, the Democrats' President Grover Cleveland signed the repeal on February 8, 1894.[/i]

  2. Here comes the "but that was then" crowd. "It's different now"

  3. Funny how the GOP just copies everything the Dem's do. And, to try to come out with lies from the left after the completely made up RNC scripts? Humorous, yet once again.

    No where is God mentioned in the Democrat's platform now.

    Guess what? God’s name has been removed from the Democratic National Committee platform.

    This is the paragraph that was in the 2008 platform:

    “We need a government that stands up for the hopes, values, and interests of working people, and gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make the most of their God-given otential.”

    Now the words “God-given” have been removed. The paragraph has been restructured to say this:

    “We gather to reclaim the basic bargain that built the largest middle class and the most prosperous nation on Earth – the simple principle that in America, hard work should pay off, responsibility should be rewarded, and each one of us should be able to go as far as our talent and drive take us.”

    Spaghetti isn't mentioned either. Or linoleum. What gives?
