Civil Rights turned upside down
staff , his cabinet and anyone who voted for him. Democrats have called us deplorables and various other names you can’t say in polite company.
They hate us, just like racist white folks hate all us black folks. I was once hated because of the color of my skin. Now I’m hated because of my political registration.
People forget, Democrats created the black codes, Jim Crow laws, segregation, the Ku Klux Klan. They denied us the right to vote. Then the 1965 Civil Rights law was passed and Dr. King encouraged black folks to register as Democrats so we could vote for John Kennedy.
Since then the Democratic Party has convinced black folks that the Republicans are the racists. Now they are not only calling Republicans racists, but sexists, misogynists, homophobic, Xenophobic, and Islamaphobic. And those of us who are black and Republican are also called “Uncle Toms." Problem is – it’s all a lie.
But they are using those terms as reasons to harass us and they defend the harassment as “Freedom of Speech” and their right to protest. Real racists denied us the right to vote, to eat at public establishments, to use public accommodations. I drank from separate water fountains. I rode in the back of the bus. I went to “Separate but Equal” schools – all because racist Democrats didn’t like the color of my skin.
Now Democrats, black and white, want to harass me – all because they don’t like my politics. Seems like Civil Rights turned upside down.
They are marching, protesting, denying people the right to public accommodations and the right to speak on college campuses. They have already resorted to violence since Trump won the election. They’ve beaten people up and even shot one Congressman. They talked about burning The White House down and impeaching Trump before his first 100 days. They even talked about assassinating him.
Nobody has died yet. But what happens when someone does?
This is a Democratic Republic. We vote politicians in or out. We accept the results of an election as legal and binding. We don’t advocate violence because we don’t like the results of an election.
We also don’t harass elected or appointed officials in public, at their workplace and certainly not at their homes – merely because we don’t like their boss. To see an elected official advocate harassment of another public official just because they are from the opposition party is just frightening. And to watch black officials or black radio or TV talk show hosts advocate doing to others what was done to them or their forefathers is an abomination.
