Obama Official: With Republicans, The Way Politics Are Today, There Would Still Be Slavery (Video)

When the Civil War ended, and after Republican President Abraham Lincoln liberated the slaves in the south, Democrats initiated Jim Crow laws to punish blacks. Democrats discriminated against blacks. In fact, the KKK, was founded as the the terrorist wing of the Democrat Party.

The Ku Klux Klan assassinated many Republicans including Republican Representative James M. Hinds (December 5, 1833—October 22, 1868) of Little Rock. Hinds represented Arkansas in the United States Congress from June 24, 1868 through October 22, 1868.

But, since when do facts matter with liberal Democrats?
MSNBC host Chuck Todd got a chuckle out of a White House official saying,
“With this Republican, the way politics are today, there would still be slavery.”

    We are slaves if most of our income goes to the gov’t in taxes and others are dependent on the gov’t for everything.

    Democrats are obsessed with playing the “slave card”. And why not? The only modern day slaves in America are the uninformed minorities who mindlessly vote en masse for Democrats.

  • Rachelle

    Of course these historical morons don’t remember that Jeff Davis, President of the Confederacy,. was a Democrat and Lincoln was a Republican.

    I agree with the statement, but for a different reason.

    Democrats are saying:

    “Hey guys, if Republican leaders of the Civil War times were like the ones that there are today – weak, we Democrats, would have won and kept the slavery. But no fear, we [democrats] are currently instituting slavery, and half of the prospective slavery population [democrat base] loves it!”

    B-B-But the schools don’t teach any USA history before about 1880. So these KKK issues would not be covered. Check it out where yr kids go to school. also no civics, no government
    (the main thrust is the 3 Ds: Dinosurs Diversity and Dolphins, Heh)

  • Sparty

    How stupid is the RNC (over the years) to allow people to forget that the KKK was the mainstream of the Democratic Party for decades, and a respected wing of it into the 1950’s and 60’s?

    We need to win the communications war people, in English, Spanish and Ebonics.

  • Meh

    Why doesn’t the presstitute identify the racist who made the statement?

  • shadow

    Yes, let’s pretend like the Dixiecrats never existed … that the 60’s never happened … and that Republicans never used the “Southern Strategy” to win elections.

  • Alisa

    Actually, I must agree with the comments. Republicans during Lincoln’s time stood up for their principles. These days Republicans “reach across the aisle” and “compromise” with those on the left. Had we had this lot back in the 1800’s they would have “toned down” the anti-slavery “rhetoric” in an attempt to appeal to independents. Some would have announced that their plendge of supporting abolition would not apply to them any longer. They would work with the pro-slavery Democrats because the slavery issue is so polarizing. They would listen to those who told them that they needed to abandon the idea of abolition because it is unpopular.

    So, yes. If today’s Republicans were around in the 1800’s we WOULD still have slavery. And I agree with those who have alrady commented that the Democrats remain the party of slavery, it is just in a different guise. Our current crop of Republicans haven’t the stomach to fight for what is right and we will all be sold to the newest plantation.

    Let’s see can I call a Costas here. TAKE AWAY THESE IGNORAMUSES (SP) FREEDOM OF SPEECH.

    Seriously, we need to confront this evil that has been spewing its evil venom for years, now.
