Dems Decry Trump’s ‘Lynching’ Tweet, Ignore Their Party’s History of Lynchings

Breitbart/ Jerome Hudson: Whatever evil lynchings evoke — the extrajudicial massacre of thousands of blacks and whites in America by hanging — is a legacy of cold blooded murder. And it’s barbarism that belongs almost exclusively to the Democrat Party.

In 1871, black South Carolina Republican Rep. Robert Brown Elliott said “the declared purpose [of the Democratic party is] to defeat the ballot with the bullet and other coercive means. . . . The white Republican of the South is also hunted down and murdered or scourged for his opinion’s sake, and during the past two years more than six hundred loyal [Republican] men of both races have perished in my State alone.”

Elliot was speaking before Congress, which was set to vote on a Reconstruction-era bill that would empower the president to use the federal military to subdue and federal courts to prosecute the Ku Klux Klan. The Klan had become the terrorist wing of the Democrat Party after the Civil War. Mass murder, many by hanging, rape, robbery, and arson, was their modus operandi. President Ulysses S. Grant’s use of the Ku Klux Klan Act resulted in a short-term destruction of the KKK. But about a decade after Elliot’s warning to Congress, lynchings in America peaked

Some 4,743 people were lynched — 3,446 blacks and 1,297 whites — from 1882 to 1968, according to the Tuskegee Institute. When Democrats and their Klan terrorists weren’t lynching Republicans, they were thwarting GOP lawmakers’ decades-long effort to pass federal anti-lynching laws. read more

8 Comments on Dems Decry Trump’s ‘Lynching’ Tweet, Ignore Their Party’s History of Lynchings

  1. After Lincoln’s assassination, the Democrat Andrew Johnson (Lincoln’s VP) became the President. He was an old fashioned Southern Democrat sympathetic to the Southern Cause and against Reconstruction.

    Under the policies and practices of his administration, Reconstruction failed, the KKK was created and lynchings of blacks and white radical Republicans was pervasive. Like the KKK, the Democrats own lynching.

    It can be reasonably stated that Johnson was the first Democrat that helped plunge this country into a legacy of racial, cultural and economic division.

    Just like the Democrat controlled states and cities of today.

  2. The first well known RINO – Senator Edmund Ross of Kansas, the Republican with the deciding vote to impeach Johnson: His single vote of “Nay” saved Johnson from impeachment.

    Ross eventually became a Democrat.

  3. Oooh! Look! Another (we need an echo effect: “nother, nother… nother”. Like “Sunday! Sunday! Sunday.”) conservative “Democrats are the real racists!” burp.

    Oooh! And it’s long. Very conservative.

    And full of picayune minutiae. From (literally literal) centuries ago. Very conservative, indeed.

  4. once again history is rewritten.

    “only blacks have been lynched”
    “only blacks have been slaves”
    “only blacks have been poor”

    if these talking heads referenced any historical factual knowledge, most of the social problems would die due to lack of attention given to the arguments supporting them because they’re all false.

  5. The Greatest Trick the Devil Ever Pulled Was Convincing the World He Didn’t Exist.

    The Second Greatest Trick the Devil Ever Pulled Was Convincing the World He Wasn’t a Democrat.

  6. There are good lynchings and bad lynchings. We could use a few lynchings on the capital steps. Time to send a message about who rules this country.
