Democrats Deny Blacks the Right to Vote by Frances Rice

The hypocrisy of Democrats is astonishing.

The Do Nothing Democrats in Congress, who have a dismal 14% public approval rating, are spending our tax dollars investigating Alberto Gonzales for firing eight US Attorneys. It was perfectly legal and appropriate for Attorney General Gonzales to fire those attorneys under his command -- without any justification or even for purely partisan political reasons -- because the US Attorneys serve at the pleasure of the president. President Bill Clinton fired all 97 US Attorneys when he took over the White House, just because they had been appointed by his two Republican predecessors. The Republicans in Congress did not complain at the time because they knew that the president had the right to fire those US Attorneys.

Democrats are busily accusing Republicans of ”suppressing the votes of minority and low-income voters” when in fact the party that has been documented as disfranchising black voters is the Democratic Party.

The 1965 Voting Rights Act -- which did not give blacks the right to vote -- was designed to stop the Democrats from infringing on the right of blacks to vote which was granted in the 15th Amendment to the US Constitution, thanks to the Republicans, and ratified on March 30, 1870. And thanks to the leadership of Republican Senator Everett Dirksen, Republicans overcame the strong opposition of the Democrats to pass the 1965 Voting Rights Act.

Notably, in his 4,500-word State of the Union Address on January 4, 1965, Democrat President Lyndon Johnson mentioned scores of topics for federal action, but only 35 words were devoted to civil rights and not one word was said about voting rights. The statement by Johnson about losing the South after the civil rights laws were passed was not based on his fear that the racist Democrats would join the Republican Party that was fighting for the civil rights for blacks. Instead, Johnson was expressing his fear that the racist Democrats would start a third party, such as the short-lived States' Rights Democratic Party. In fact, Alabama's Democrat Governor George Wallace in 1968 started the American Independent Party that attracted other racist candidates, including Democrat Atlanta Mayor Lester Maddox.

It defies logic to suggest that the passage of civil rights legislation in the 1960’s caused the racist Democrats to become Republicans. It was the Republicans who pushed to pass all civil rights laws from the 1860’s to the 1960’s and beyond. It was racist Democrats who instituted those Jim Crow laws and fought every piece of civil rights legislation from the 1860’s to the 1960’s.

It boggles my mind that people think that those racist Democrats, after they lost their fight against civil rights, would then rush into the arms of the people they were fighting, the Republicans. Instead, those Democrats declared that they would rather vote for a "yellow dog" than vote for a Republican because the Republican Party, that was started as the anti-slavery party, was know as the party for blacks.

During the 2000 election, Al Gore hired a left-wing attorney, David Kochman, to head up a team of lawyers to spread out over the state of Florida and orchestrate having the votes of military personnel stationed overseas (some of them black) thrown out because their envelopes arrived without a stamp. This last-minute, despicable legal war was waged against overseas service members even though Al Gore and his lawyer sharks knew about the federal law which allows overseas military personnel to put ballots in the mail without a stamp because their far away duty stations do not have post offices.

Also during the 2000 election, Al Gore did not request a state-wide voter recount in Florida, instead he cherry-picked a few heavy Democrat counties, hoping that a few extra votes could be “found” for him.

The purge of felons from Florida's voter rolls was routine and required by Florida's law. The Miami Herald, a very liberal newspaper, found that whites were twice as likely to be incorrectly placed on the felon purge list as blacks. The claim by Democrats that "millions" of blacks were denied the right to vote seems ludicrous on its face, since voting is done in secret, and ballots do not record the race of the voter.

It boggles my mind that people think that those racist Democrats, after they lost their fight against civil rights, would then rush into the arms of the people they were fighting, the Republicans. Instead, those Democrats declared that they would rather vote for a "yellow dog" than vote for a Republican because the Republican Party, that was started as the anti-slavery party, was know as the party for blacks.
