Hillary Clinton is attacking Donald Trump over the alleged “racial undertones,” but she’s ignoring the history of her own party. As the late 19th century freethinker Robert Ingersoll once put it, “Every man that loved slavery better than liberty was a Democrat… I am a Republican because it is the only free party that ever existed.’
As we all know, the nation’s first Republican president freed the slaves and was hated for it – so much to that he was consequentially murdered by a Democrat. The Klu Klux Klan was created by Democrat Party members for the express purpose of terrorizing blacks and Republicans in the South to prevent them from voting. Every known Klansman that were members of Congress have been Democrats. The first grand wizard of the KKK was honored at the 1868 Democratic National Convention, and such honoring of the KKK is hardly a relic of the past.
Hillary Clinton has received over $20,000 in donations from the KKK, and even honored the late KKK member and Senator Robert Byrd following his death. She can be seen in the photo below embracing a kiss from the late Senator.
Can you imagine the media meltdown that would ensure had Donald Trump taken a kiss on the cheek from David Duke? You don’t have to, because that would NEVER happen.
The YouTube sensations known as Diamond and Silk, former Democrats who left the party to support Donald Trump, responded on Sunday to Hillary Clinton’s most recent charges of racism against the Republican presidential candidate.
“She don’t own black people,” stated Diamond. “Black people are coming off of that Democratic plantation. She don’t get to calm the waters and tell black people not to listen to Donald J Trump. Donald J. Trump is telling the truth.”
“And [Trump] needs to keep speaking it. Keep speaking it. Because black people are listening. And what’s happening is the left is scared. Hillary Clinton is scared. But she is not our slave master. She don’t own black people and we can vote for whoever we want to vote for.”
The dynamic duo were speaking in an interview set to air Sunday night on this reporter’s talk radio program, “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio,” broadcast on New York’s AM 970 The Answer and NewsTalk 990 AM in Philadelphia.
The two slammed Clinton for criticizing Trump over remarks he made at a campaign event in Virginia, where the billionaire addressed inner city African American voters by asking, “What do you have to lose by trying something new, like Trump?”
“Look at how much African-American communities are suffering from Democratic control,” he stated. “To those I say the following: what do you have to lose by trying something new – like Trump?”
Trump continued: “What do you have to lose? You’re living in poverty, your schools are no good, you have no jobs, 58 per cent of your youth is unemployed, what the hell do you have to lose?”
Technically, Trump’s statistic is a bit off. The unemployment rate of black youth is 24%, but it is true that over 50% are either unemployed or only working part-time, which is hardly ideal.
Trump has the upper hand when it comes to garnering the black vote – as Republican policies have been better for blacks throughout history – from Lincoln to today. Democrats have managed to become the Party of minorities ever since the Presidency of FDR and the beginnings of the modern welfare state, but that experiment in liberalism has clearly failed. It’s time for a change.
