Those Racist Republicans

I am livid. It turns out that one of the highest ranking Republican members of the Senate once said:
"I would never fight in the armed forces with a Negro by my side. Rather I should die a thousand times, and see old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels."
As is so typical of Republicans , the person in question was once an influential member of the KKK. This is a complete outrage and a disgrace to the party. Oh, there are some serious racist skeletons hidden in the Republican closet. It is time to clear the air and have done with this! Can the Party survive the MSM assault that is surely coming?

Okay. As you may have guessed, the person in question is not a Republican at all, but none other than the Exalted Cyclops and Grand Kleagle of the Democratic Party, Robert Byrd. And there is no MSM assault a-comin'. And there is no disgrace and livid outrage. This is because, as a fundamental fact unneedful of examination (and as was written into the laws of reality at the Big Bang), Democrats love Negroes! Here are some details (from this article):

The United States Senate has passed a resolution, sponsored by Republican George Allen of Virginia and Democrat Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, apologizing as an institution for preventing the passage of anti-lynching legislation.

We are still waiting for the Democratic Party to apologize for its role, which is far greater than that of the whole Senate, inasmuch as all the senators who prevented action to abolish lynching for all those decades, were Democrats.

The old massahs were Democrats, too, and so were the whip-toting overseers who carried out their brutality on what they regarded as sub-human chattel. The sponsors of Jim Crow segregation were all Democrats, and so were the adherents to the Ku Klux Klan, including that organization's surviving representative in the Senate, Robert Byrd of West Virginia.

Byrd is also the only surviving Senator who participated in the filibuster of the 1964 Civil Rights Bill, which was passed because of the support of Republicans, led by Everett Dirksen of Illinois, whose seat is now held by Barack Obama, the only black man the Democrats have ever elected to the Senate.

The only other black Democratic Senator was Carole Moseley Braun, who held the very same seat from 1993 to 1999. That a party which routinely claims the support of ninety percent of the African-American vote has such a dismal record of rewarding that loyalty with Senate seats is a scandal of the first rank.

Democrats, after all, also purport to believe in affirmative action, and since black voters constitute approximately twenty-five percent of all Democrats, there should be ten or eleven black Democratic Senators at any given time. Instead, there have been two, in the whole history of the party.

There have been three Republicans, and that number may well increase to four next year, with the recent announcement that Maryland Lieutenant Governor Michael Steele has formed a committee for the purpose of replacing Sen. Paul Sarbanes, who is retiring. The popular Steele is the first African-American ever elected to statewide office in Maryland, a strongly Democratic state where the majority party has never once bothered to nominate a black to their state ticket.

Republicans are racists? Projection, thy name is the Democratic Party.
