Democrat Party dominated the south for many decades
#1
It is apparent that many Democrats fail to realize that the Democrat party itself dominated the south for over 80 years as shown in the below.The same southern states that originated the KKK,Jim Crow laws and other suppressive tactics that were very prominent in the southern states that were dominated by the Democrat PARTY.

From Wikipedia is this entry about Jim Crow laws and that Liberal Democrat Woodrow Wilson pushed segregation with appointments of people into his administration who agree to keep blacks suppressed and separated in American society:

Quote:The Jim Crow laws were racial segregation laws enacted between 1876 and 1965 in the United States at the state and local level. They mandated de jure racial segregation in all public facilities in Southern states of the former Confederacy, with, starting in 1890, a "separate but equal" status for African Americans. The separation in practice led to conditions for African Americans that tended to be inferior to those provided for white Americans, systematizing a number of economic, educational and social disadvantages. De jure segregation mainly applied to the Southern United States. While Northern segregation was generally de facto, there were patterns of segregation in housing enforced by covenants, bank lending practices, and job discrimination, including discriminatory union practices for decades.

Some examples of Jim Crow laws are the segregation of public schools, public places, and public transportation, and the segregation of restrooms, restaurants, and drinking fountains for whites and blacks. The U.S. military was also segregated, as were federal workplaces, initiated in 1913 under President Woodrow Wilson, the first Southern president since 1856. His administration practiced overt racial discrimination in hiring, requiring candidates to submit photos.

These Jim Crow Laws followed the 1800–1866 Black Codes, which had previously restricted the civil rights and civil liberties of African Americans with no pretense of equality. State-sponsored school segregation was declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court of the United States in 1954 in Brown v. Board of Education. Generally, the remaining Jim Crow laws were overruled by the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

The Civil Rights act of 1964 was passed by a good Democrat majority and overwhelming majority of the Republican party:

By party

The original House version:[19]

Democratic Party: 152–96 (61–39%)
Republican Party: 138–34 (80–20%)

Cloture in the Senate:[20]

Democratic Party: 44–23 (66–34%)
Republican Party: 27–6 (82–18%)

The Senate version:[19]

Democratic Party: 46–21 (69–31%)
Republican Party: 27–6 (82–18%)

The Senate version, voted on by the House:[19]

Democratic Party: 153–91 (63–37%)
Republican Party: 136–35 (80–20%)

The main opposition to the act were from Influential Democrats such as Robert (KKK) Byrd:

Quote:On the morning of June 10, 1964, Senator Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.) completed a filibustering address that he had begun 14 hours and 13 minutes earlier opposing the legislation.

By then Democrat Strom Thurmond:

Quote:The most fervent opposition to the bill came from Senator Strom Thurmond (D-SC): "This so-called Civil Rights Proposals, which the President has sent to Capitol Hill for enactment into law, are unconstitutional, unnecessary, unwise and extend beyond the realm of reason. This is the worst civil-rights package ever presented to the Congress and is reminiscent of the Reconstruction proposals and actions of the radical Republican Congress."

Another Democrat of power also fought against it:

Quote:The bill was reported out of the Judiciary Committee in November 1963, and referred to the Rules Committee, whose chairman, Howard W. Smith, a Democrat and avid segregationist from Virginia, indicated his intention to keep the bill bottled up indefinitely.

Yet another powerful Democrat opposed it:

Quote:Normally, the bill would have been referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee, chaired by Senator James O. Eastland, Democrat from Mississippi. Given Eastland's firm opposition, it seemed impossible that the bill would reach the Senate floor.

All but one Democrat from the SOUTH opposed the bill:

Quote:When the bill came before the full Senate for debate on March 30, 1964, the "Southern Bloc" of 18 southern Democratic Senators and one Republican Senator led by Richard Russell (D-GA) launched a filibuster to prevent its passage.[13] Said Russell: "We will resist to the bitter end any measure or any movement which would have a tendency to bring about social equality and intermingling and amalgamation of the races in our (Southern) states."

Notice that only moderate or conservative Democrats from the NORTHERN states such as Kennedy,Mansfield,Humphrey,who were supportive of the Civil Rights act and worked hard to make it get passed.

Meanwhile it was the NORTHERN states voter opinions that pushed in support of the act proposal:

Quote:After the return of Congress from its winter recess, however, it was apparent that public opinion in the North favored the bill and that the petition would acquire the necessary signatures. To avert the humiliation of a successful discharge petition, Chairman Smith relented and allowed the bill to pass through the Rules Committee.

The same Northern states that at the time was where the main political power base of the Republican party was then based in:

1952

Quote:Eisenhower the NATO commander and war hero narrowly defeated Taft, then crusaded against the Truman policies he blasted as "Korea, Communism and Corruption." Ike, as they called him, did well in all major demographic and regional groups outside the Deep South.

Yup even as late as the early 1950's Stevenson a liberal Democrat wins most of the deep southern states against a moderate Eisenhower who won ALL of the Northern states which he repeated in 1956 with greater majority against a liberal Democrat.

1956

Quote:Stevenson remained popular with a core of liberal Democrats, but held no office and had no real base. He (and Eisenhower) largely ignored the subject of civil rights.

bolding my emphasis

1960

Quote: Kennedy used his large, well-funded campaign organization to win the nomination, secure endorsements, and, with the aid of the last of the big-city bosses, get out the vote in the big cities. [5] He relied on running mate Lyndon B. Johnson to hold the South, and used television effectively

Kennedy a Moderate Democrat along with Liberal Johnson wins almost all the southern states except Florida,while Nixon wins half of the Northern states.

Recall that it was violently racist segregationist Bull O'Connor a liberal Democrat scumbag who attacked blacks that garnered national attention showing the core ugliness of the democrat party:

Quote:Connor's actions to enforce racial segregation and deny civil rights to Black citizens, especially during the Southern Christian Leadership Conference's Birmingham Campaign of 1963, made him an international symbol of racism. Connor directed the use of fire hoses and police attack dogs against peaceful demonstrators, including children.[1][2] These tactics backfired when the spectacle of the brutality broadcast on national television served as one of the catalysts for major social and legal change in the Southern United States and contributed to passage by the United States Congress of the Civil Rights Act of 1964

a Lifelong Liberal Democrat from the deep southern state of Alabama:

Quote:Connor entered politics as a Democrat in 1934, winning a seat in the Alabama House of Representatives.

The depths of his depravity is shown here:

Quote:Before returning to office in 1956, Connor quickly resumed his heavy-handed approach to dealing with perceived threats. One prominent instance came when a meeting at the Reverend Fred Shuttlesworth's house with three Montgomery ministers was raided, with Connor fearing that the Montgomery Bus Boycott would spread to Birmingham. The ministers were arrested for vagrancy, which did not allow a prisoner bail, nor any visitors during the first three days of their incarceration. A federal investigation followed, but Connor refused to cooperate.

Shuttlesworth had been frequently in danger in the previous two years, having seen his church bombed twice. He, his wife and a white minister were also attacked by a mob after attempting to use white restrooms at the local bus station.

In 1960, Connor was elected Democratic National Committeeman for Alabama, soon after filing a lawsuit against The New York Times for $1.5 million, for what he said was insinuating that he had promoted racial hatred. Later dropping the amount to $400,000, the case dragged on for six years until Connor lost a $40,000 judgment on appeal.


Then we have Governor Wallace another well known opposer of blacks and a powerful Democrat from the deeeeep south:

Quote:The Second Infantry Division from Ft. Benning, GA was ordered to be prepared to enforce the integration of the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. In a vain attempt to halt the enrollment of black students Vivian Malone and James Hood, Governor Wallace stood in front of Foster Auditorium at the University of Alabama on June 11, 1963. This became known as the "Stand in the Schoolhouse Door".

In September 1963, Wallace again attempted to stop four black students from enrolling in four separate elementary schools in Huntsville. After intervention by a federal court in Birmingham, the four children were allowed to enter on September 9, becoming the first to integrate a primary or secondary school in Alabama.[19][20]

Wallace desperately wanted to preserve segregation. In his own words: "The President (John F. Kennedy) wants us to surrender this state to Martin Luther King and his group of pro-communists who have instituted these demonstrations."

I find this amusing because it shows just how dominant the Democrats were in Alabama as late as 1962:

Quote:In the 1962 Democratic primary, Wallace finished first in the primary ahead of State Senator Ryan DeGraffenried, Sr., taking 35 percent of the vote. In the runoff, Wallace won the nomination with 55 percent of the vote. As no Republican even filed to run (though Democratic dominance of state politics was so absolute that a Republican candidate would have stood almost no chance in any event), this all but assured Wallace of becoming the next governor. He won a crushing victory in the November general election, taking 96 percent of the vote.

Now to the main point that it was the Democrat PARTY that dominated the deep south for over 90 years:

1860

John C. Breckingridge wins ALL of the Southern States which went to Confederacy shortly afterwards.

1868

The last time Republican candidate wins a few of the Southern states and that it was during this time into the 1870's that blacks who were then Republicans (because the Republican party wanted them to have the opportunity,while the Democrats prevented them in their areas) were winning some elections into office.

Meanwhile taking a break by pointing out that the main cause of the existence of the Republican party was to OPPOSE Slavery spreading into new territories (The Democrat party didn't try to do that) which they did through President Abraham Lincoln:

Quote:Republican Party, the younger of the two major political parties in the United States. Organized in 1854 to oppose the extension of slavery into the territories, it first captured the presidency in 1860 under the leadership of Abraham Lincoln. His election was followed by the Civil War, during which the Republican Party became the majority party.

Up into the 1920's Blacks were significant supporters of the always anti slave political party.

Quote:Until 1929 the success of the Republican Party was based on an alliance between eastern businesspeople and midwestern farmers. Most laborers and blacks also supported the party with regularity. In the wake of the Depression of the 1930s, the party lost most of its urban supporters with the exception of businesspeople. After World War II the party gained a following in the suburbs and in the South.

Back to the election roll call with 1876,bypassing the weird 1872 election

Hayes a Republican wins TWO southern states by a compromise,while it was possible would have lost them if they went the usual route of recounting the votes.

Quote:An informal deal was struck to resolve the dispute: the Compromise of 1877, which awarded all 20 electoral votes to Hayes. In return for the Democrats' acquiescence in Hayes's election, the Republicans agreed to withdraw federal troops from the South, ending Reconstruction. The Compromise effectively ceded power in the Southern states to the Democratic Redeemers.

1880

Hancock a Democrat wins All of the Southern states in his narrow loss.

From 1880 to 1924 they ALWAYS won ALL of the deep Southern States:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Stat...tion,_1884

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Stat...tion,_1888

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Stat...tion,_1892

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Stat...tion,_1896

William Jennings Bryan an avowed politically liberal and socially conservative wins All of the south and loses the election all three times from 1896-1900,1908.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Stat...tion,_1900

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Stat...tion,_1904

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Stat...tion,_1908

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Stat...tion,_1912

Liberal Wilson wins ALL of the south and most of the rest too.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Stat...tion,_1916

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Stat...tion,_1920

Democrat James Cox wins ONLY in the southern states.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Stat...tion,_1924

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Stat...tion,_1928

Republican Hoover managed to win Florida

Taking a short break here to point out what the Deep South really is:

Quote:Origins

Though often used in history books to refer to the seven states that originally formed the Confederacy, the term "Deep South" did not come into general usage until long after the Civil War ended. Up until that time, "Lower South" was the primary designation for those states. When "Deep South" first began to gain mainstream currency in print -- in the middle of the 20th century -- it applied to the states and areas of Mississippi, north Louisiana, southern Alabama and Georgia, and northern Florida. This was the part of the South many considered the "most Southern"

and that they were overwhelming supporters of the Democrat party.

Quote:Politics

From 1880 to 1960 the Deep South overwhelmingly supported the Democratic Party as a legacy of the rival Republican Party's record during Reconstruction. It was known as the "Solid South".

Now back to the election roll call:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Stat...tion,_1932

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Stat...tion,_1936

Wipes out Hoover then Landon for his first two elections.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Stat...tion,_1940

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Stat...tion,_1944

Still wins the deep south again but with far fewer northern and mid western states in his last two elections.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Stat...tion,_1948

Two Democrat presidential candidates (Thurman,Truman) combined wins ALL of the deep south.Dewey the Republican didn't win any of them,not even the states right above them.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Stat...tion,_1952

Eisenhower a Republican finally wins a southern state of Florida,just as Hoover did way back in 1928,it marks the ending dominant hold of the deep south for the Democrat party.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Stat...tion,_1956

He now wins Louisiana too,with Florida again as well.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Stat...tion,_1960

Florida for the third time in a row goes to a Republican.

In 1964 the South finally started voting for Republican candidates,the culmination of decades long trend of eroding Democrat party support in the deep south,where they were winning 70-80% of the votes in local and state elections to finally start losing them in the 1960's.

The voting pattern clearly shows that it was the Democrat party that held the power in the deep south for 80 years,the very span of time where Jim Crow laws and KKK held dominance.It was the Republicans who fought slavery as a party plank and it was Grant and fellow Republicans starting in the 1870's who fought against the KKK by passing laws against them.

It was also the political party that initially supported blacks to gain elective office in the 1870's only later to be stopped by the Democrats with their many tricks denying them the ability to cast votes and be allowed to run for office.

This is but a sampling of the well known anti black party Democrats used to be that was drummed out of them in the early 1960's when President Kennedy pushed for Civil Rights of Black Americans.

An aggrieved Democrat who can't face well documented past history.

Quote:You are the decider of what is free speech? You judge me a whiner and you the information relater. You demean someone in many of your posts. Is that an indicator of arrogance or insecurity? Try accepting that there are more ways to view the world than our own. Your point /counter point works better without condescending remarks placed in your presentation unless your going for the Hannity/ Limbaugh approach to discussion.

I get a little snotty when people refuse to show what part of MY presentation is wrong and then turn around and whine about my very minor snipes at you.

I posted a lot of information backed by sources and you made ZERO attempt to show how they are wrong.You throw in a Blue Dog definition,which does not even begin to address the voting pattern point I was making which was in the DEEP south for 90 years while your definition says:

Quote:a conservative Democrat, esp. from a southern U.S. state
Usage: politics

Ha ha ha... that was it? There are also a lot of liberal Republicans too,but that also doesn't address my 90 years of unbroken DEMOCRAT power in the deep south voting pattern at all.

Your entire attempt to any form of rebuttal in the facebook comment list was this................

That is why I can't take you seriously on this topic.

Now to go deeper into the topic to show just how determined the evil Republicans were in those days 100 years ago:

Racial segregation in the United States

Excerpt:

Quote:After Congress passed the Reconstruction Act of 1867, the ratification of the Fifteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution in 1870 providing the right to vote, and the Civil Rights Act of 1875 forbidding racial segregation in accommodations, Federal occupation troops in the South assured blacks the right to vote and to elect their own political leaders. The Reconstruction amendments asserted the supremacy of the national state and the formal equality under the law of everyone within it

It was REPUBLICANS who had control of the congress at the time and Blacks ran for office on the Republican side of the Isle since the other side were former confederates who were Democrats would not have them on their side at all.

But it didn't last as the Democrats reasserted control over the south when the troops were being withdrawn:

Quote: However this radical Reconstruction era would collapse because of multidimensional racialism related to the spread of democratic idealism (progressivism). What began as region wide passage of ‘Jim Crow’ segregation laws that focused on issues of equal access to public activities and facilities would by 1910 have spread throughout the south, mandating the segregation of whites and blacks in the public sphere.

and,

Quote:To discourage black voting, Southern Democrats resorted to violence. The white supremacist group Ku Klux Klan terrorized black political leaders to counter the Republican party's power base. Many blacks were killed (often lynched) for attempting to exercise their right to vote, for being members of political organizations and for attending school.

Now YOU try a real counterpoint that goes beyond a definition and teary eyes complaints over my mild jibes,which are designed to spur you to do better in your replies.

Believe me I am very gentile with you compared to what I have posted elsewhere where I make complete fools of people who should have proof read their own stupid replies to my sources such as this one:

http://ai-jane.org/bb/thread-6620-post-1...#pid101298

and,

http://ai-jane.org/bb/thread-6620-post-1...#pid101761

List of African-American officeholders during the Reconstruction

EXCERPT:

Quote:Many scholars have identified more than 1,500 African American officeholders during the Reconstruction period (1865–1876). All were Republicans. Historian Canter Brown, Jr. noted that in some states, such as Florida, the highest number of African Americans were elected or appointed to offices after 1876 and the end of Reconstruction. The following is a partial list some of the most notable of the officeholders pre-1900.

Civil Rights Racism: Democrats Controlled Everything But Would Not Pass Civil Rights! The History The Timeline of Democrat Racism

by Maggie • August 18, 2012

EXCERPT:

After writing about an MSNBC talking head’s comment about the “niggerization of politics” yesterday, and watching the latest threat by the New Black Panther Party against the Republican National Convention, I thought it time to update my posts on racism and the timeline of action and inaction. The following combines some of my previous posts and adds new sources. This is a long post – just skip to the Timeline for a quicker read. The video below, Racism in the Democratic Party is well worth watching.

In a discussion of Civil Rights in America, how often do you hear the name of Republican Senator Everett Dirksen (R-IL)? Not often. How often do you hear the name of Democrat Senator Robert Byrd in connection to civil rights? Not often but for very different reasons. Dirksen was a champion for civil rights. Robert Byrd was not. But you do hear the name of Senator Strom Thurmond practically spat from the mouths of those accusing Republicans for the plight of Negros African-Americans Blacks, but Strom Thurmond was a Democrat in those days, and he was VERY active in trying to kill the civil rights bill. It was later that Thurmond became a Republican. Most people do not know that.

An agenda can be identified by what is NOT being said. The names of Dwight Eisenhower, Richard Nixon, Everett Dirksen and the many Republicans who fought for, and or/voted for the civil rights bill are never uttered. Neither is it mentioned that Republicans voted for the Civil Rights bill in far greater percentages than did Democrats, or that Democrats had a sufficient majority to pass it without a single Republican vote.

As President of the Senate, Nixon witnessed Democrat Senator Strom Thurmond and his single-man filibuster to prohibit black voting rights…a filibuster which went on for 24 hours and 18 minutes straight on the Senate floor. Democrat Senator Robert Byrd filibustered for 18 hours.

Dirksen’s role (Diane Alden NewsMax):

He was the master key to victory for the civil Rights Act of 1964. Without him and the Republican vote, the Act would have been dead in the water for years to come. LBJ and Humphrey knew that without Dirksen the civil Rights Act was going nowhere.

Why did Lyndon Johnson and Hubert Humphrey (both Democrats) think they had to have Dirksen? Simply because their own Democrat majority in both chambers would not carry the vote. The Senate had a final voting share of 65%, Republicans 35%. Only 51 votes were needed for passage in a Senate with 65 seated Democrats. In the House Democrats had a 59% voting share to the Republican’s 41%. Eighty-two percent of Republicans voted for passage of the joint Senate-House bill. Sixty-nine percent of Democrats voted for passage.

May 30, 1854: Democrat President Franklin Pierce signs Democrats’ Kansas-Nebraska Act, expanding slavery into U.S. territories; opponents unite to form the Republican Party

June 16, 1854: Newspaper editor Horace Greeley calls on opponents of slavery to unite in the Republican Party

July 6, 1854: First state Republican Party officially organized in Jackson, Michigan, to oppose Democrats’ pro-slavery policies

February 11, 1856: Republican Montgomery Blair argues before U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of his client, the slave Dred Scott; later served in [Republican] President Lincoln’s Cabinet

February 22, 1856: First national meeting of the Republican Party, in Pittsburgh, to coordinate opposition to Democrats’ pro-slavery policies

March 27, 1856: First meeting of Republican National Committee in Washington, DC to oppose Democrats’ pro-slavery policies

May 22, 1856: For denouncing Democrats’ pro-slavery policy, Republican U.S. Senator Charles Sumner (R-MA) is beaten nearly to death on floor of Senate by U.S. Rep. Preston Brooks (D-SC), takes three years to recover.

Confederate Flag, Democrat Donkey & Islamic Crescent


EXCERPT:

Quote:Calls to ban the Confederate Flag due to its association with slavery may lead to calls to ban the Donkey symbol of the Democrat Party and the Islamic Crescent, as those institutions had also been involved in the enslavement of Africans.

Prior to the Civil War there were two major political parties in the United States:

Democrats, who favored freedom of choice to own slaves; and

Whigs, who tried to be a big tent party to stem the loss of members to the Know-Nothing Party.

On February 28, 1854, in Ripon, Wisconsin, anti-slavery activists met for the first time, then held their first State Convention in Jackson, Michigan on JULY 6, 1854.

This new political party took a stand against slavery.

It also was against an effort in Utah to redefine marriage.

The name of this new political party was "Republican."

The chief plank of the original Republican Party platform was "to prohibit...those twin relics of barbarism: POLYGAMY AND SLAVERY."

Quote:Last week a group of students at Princeton University occupied the office of the school's president and demanded that the institution remove the name of Woodrow Wilson from all campus buildings and academic programs, including the elite Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. Why? Because Wilson was a virulent racist who imposed white supremacist policies while serving as president of the United States.

The Democratic Party’s Evolving Racism Toward Blacks  LINK

May 16,2016

by Jeffery B. Shellan

EXCERPT:

Democrats continue their 200-year tradition of setting low standards for African Americans.

Quote:"Rather I should die a thousand times … than see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds." - Robert Byrd, Democrat Senator (1959 through 2010) and founder of the Sophia, West Virginia chapter of the Ku Klux Klan (150 members) 
“I did not lie awake at night worrying about the problems of Negroes.” – Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, 1961
“These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness” - Lyndon B. Johnson (1963)
“I’ll have those n**gers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.” - Lyndon B. Johnson confiding in two governors why the passage of his civil rights and welfare legislation was important (1963)

In a recent American Thinker article (The Secret Racist History of the Democratic Party), Kimberly Bloom Jackson
made the case that the Democrats were the party of racists.

The Secret Racist History of the Democratic Party

EXCERPT:

Have you heard of Josiah Walls or Hiram Rhodes Revels?  How about Joseph Hayne Rainey?  If not, you’re not alone.  I taught history and I never knew half of our nation’s past until I began to re-educate myself by learning from original source materials, rather than modern textbooks written by progressive Democrats with an agenda.

Interestingly, Democrats have long ago erased these historic figures from our textbooks, only to offer deceitful propaganda and economic enticements in an effort to convince people, especially black Americans, that it’s the Democrats rather than Republicans who are the true saviors of civil liberties.  Luckily, we can still venture back into America’s real historical record to find that facts are stubborn things.  Let’s take a closer look.
