Despite the Democrat’s use of revisionist history to try and convince blacks that they are the Party that represents black Americans and minorities, the truth continues to live on in the beating heart of America’s Constitutional Republic! In fact, history, as laid out in historical documents, continues to unravel the left’s false narrative, as it shows that the Democrat Party fought against emancipation, was the Party of the Ku Klux Klan, and established the modern-day ghettos, as a way to create a submissive minority class in America, whether it be the impoverished Blacks, Whites, Hispanics, Asians, or other low-income Americans!
Today, Abraham Lincoln’s ‘Emancipation Proclamation’ continues to serve as a point of reference that sheds light on the fact that it was Abraham Lincoln himself, with the newly formed Republican Party, that freed the slaves in 1863!
In fact, even then, the Democrats cursed the freeing of the slaves by the Republicans and Lincoln! The Grand Old Partisan documented how the Emancipation Proclamation…
went into effect on New Year’s Day 1863. President Abraham Lincoln observed: “I never in my life felt more certain that I was doing right than I do in signing this paper. If my name goes into history, it will be for this act, and my whole soul is in it.”
While the Republicans rejoiced, Democrat politicians and newspapers denounced Lincoln for freeing slaves. Demonstrating their depravity, New York’s Governor, Horatio Seymour, who would be the 1868 Democrat presidential nominee, denounced the Emancipation Proclamation as “a proposal for the butchery of women and children.” The Louisville Daily Democrat called it “an outrage of all constitutional law, all human justice, all Christian feeling.”
Acting on authority granted by the GOP-controlled 37th Congress to seize rebel ‘property,’ President Lincoln had issued a preliminary proclamation two months before, to the dismay of Democrats. Effective at yearend, all slaves in Confederate-controlled territory would be “forever free.”
Ill-informed critics of President Lincoln fault him for not freeing slaves in areas under U.S. control, but the federal government lacked the necessary authority. Within three years, the GOP-controlled 38th Congress followed up the Emancipation Proclamation with the 13th Amendment, banning slavery nationwide.
President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863, as the nation approached its third year of bloody civil war. The proclamation declared “that all persons held as slaves” within the rebellious states “are, and henceforward shall be free.”
Despite this expansive wording, the Emancipation Proclamation was limited in many ways. It applied only to states that had seceded from the United States, leaving slavery untouched in the loyal border states. It also expressly exempted parts of the Confederacy (the Southern secessionist states) that had already come under Northern control. Most important, the freedom it promised depended upon Union (United States) military victory.
Although the Emancipation Proclamation did not end slavery in the nation, it captured the hearts and imagination of millions of Americans and fundamentally transformed the character of the war. After January 1, 1863, every advance of federal troops expanded the domain of freedom. Moreover, the Proclamation announced the acceptance of black men into the Union Army and Navy, enabling the liberated to become liberators. By the end of the war, almost 200,000 black soldiers and sailors had fought for the Union and freedom.
From the first days of the Civil War, slaves had acted to secure their own liberty. The Emancipation Proclamation confirmed their insistence that the war for the Union must become a war for freedom. It added moral force to the Union cause and strengthened the Union both militarily and politically. As a milestone along the road to slavery’s final destruction, the Emancipation Proclamation has assumed a place among the great documents of human freedom.
The original of the Emancipation Proclamation of January 1, 1863, is in the National Archives in Washington, DC. With the text covering five pages the document was originally tied with narrow red and blue ribbons, which were attached to the signature page by a wafered impression of the seal of the United States. Most of the ribbon remains; parts of the seal are still decipherable, but other parts have worn off.
The document was bound with other proclamations in a large volume preserved for many years by the Department of State. When it was prepared for binding, it was reinforced with strips along the center folds and then mounted on a still larger sheet of heavy paper. Written in red ink on the upper right-hand corner of this large sheet is the number of the Proclamation, 95, given to it by the Department of State long after it was signed. With other records, the volume containing the Emancipation Proclamation was transferred in 1936 from the Department of State to the National Archives of the United States.
The Emancipation Proclamation…
Today, the ironies abound in the Democrat Party, as their history shows the truth behind the Democrat Party’s lies and deceptions! In fact, as we already detailed, the Democrat Party over the years has become the party that has encouraged illegal immigration, embraced homosexuality, transgendered Americans, Muslim resettlement into the United States, sharia law which is incompatible with the Constitution, progressive-socialism, liberalism, gun control, abortion, redistribution of income, socialized healthcare, and now Socialism and Marxism. It has been touted as the “party of inclusion;” however, this narrative has been one that has begun to fall apart in recent months, and has proven not to be truly ‘inclusive.’ In fact, despite democrats being truly the party of the Ku-Klux-Klan, the Party who fought against the freedom of slaves, and the Party who fought against giving blacks the right to vote, they have been able to spin their web of lies in a well-done manipulation of the facts. A manipulation that has accused Republicans, and especially conservatives, of being the very force of hatred that they have enacted, and continue to enact upon our society.
Carol Swain and Prager U, detail the history of the Democrat Party. In fact, she shows how the Democratic Party founded the KKK and fought against EVERY SINGLE MAJOR CIVIL RIGHTS ACT in United States History.
Most Americans would think that the Democrat Party, being the so-called party of non-discrimination would be against judging Americans, based on the color of their skin. You would think, as Martin Luther King proclaimed: we should look at the “content of one’s character”. However, in truth, the Democrat Party has long been the party of deception, lies, bigotry, cynicism, hate, and greed. They proclaim Republicans to be racist, but it was the Republicans under Lincoln who freed the slaves. Democrats claim to be the Party of Civil Rights, but it was the Republicans who voted unanimously for virtually every single Civil Rights piece of legislation, while Democrats voted unanimously against every piece of Civil Rights legislation. Even today, Democrats fight for legislation that keeps black Americans trapped in a cycle of poverty. Now, in a twist of irony, the Democrats fight for racism against whites. They fight for ‘white racism’ to push for increased division in our country. They try to pit man against woman, black against white, legal citizen against the illegal alien, old against young, rich against poor and left against right. They are trying to break America apart and picks a fight within our country that results in a backlash against our Constitutional Republic. You can see it with ‘Antifa’, as the pro-Progressive Communists youth march through our streets covered in masks, just as communists of the past. You can see it in the fact that the Democrats cry ‘racist’ for our President trying to enforce the laws of our nation. Democrats call for a ‘resistance’ against giving hard-working American’s tax cuts. Democrats call for a ‘resistance’ against allowing Christians to practice freely without persecution. Democrats intentionally embrace Sharia law, despite its incompatibility with our Constitution. Democrats call for ‘resistance’ against allowing American’s the right to a ‘free press’, or ‘right to bear arms’, or the ‘right to be innocent until proven guilty.’ Democrats demonize our Constitution, call our Founding Fathers racist, and criticize anyone who dares to question the burning of our flag, tearing down of monuments, destruction of history, or the showing disrespect to our national anthem or our military, who put their lives on the line for us every day. Now, America’s top Democrat is calling for racism against an honorable, well-qualified judge, simply because of the color of his skin.
It should go without saying, that people should get jobs based on merit, not based on the color of their skin. However, it is Chuck Schumer, who has proven, over and over again, to be the biggest hypocrite of them all. Furthermore, it is the Democrat Party, who have proven to be the ‘Party of Racism’ time and time again. In the end, Chuck Schumer said on the Senate floor that he could not vote to approve Marvin Quattlebaum, for a vacancy on the U.S. District Court for the District of South Carolina because he is a white man, replacing two black Obama nominees. A comment, that if reversed and said by a Republican, would result in the ostracization and removal of the Senator, without question. Therefore, as the Republicans try to implement an agenda that benefits all Americans, regardless of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, or any other identifying factor, democrats continue to try to scuttle the efforts, in their best attempt to try to hide the truth about their Party’s dark and deceptive past.
Fortunately, Black Americans are finally seeing through the radical left’s shrowd of deception, and realizing that the Democrats don’t truly fight for peace, justice, or equality! Furthermore, they certainly are not fighting for black Americans or any other minority! In fact, they are simply using them as a means to their own elitist financial and political ends! Meanwhile, President Trump is plowing through their lies, their deceptions, and their fake news propaganda ministry, as he demonstrates that he not only fights for ALL AMERICANS REGARDLESS OF COLOR, ANCESTRY, RELIGION, RACE, GENDER, OR ANY OTHER STEREOTYPE THAT THE DEMOCRAT PARTY HAS USED TO DIVIDE AMERICA AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!
