Kevin & FDR

harry_reidHarry Reid is an obvious product of a government education that he and other Liberals are inflicting on the rest of America, and he should be the poster child for school choice.  In his recent comment regarding Republicans’ efforts to block “healthcare” legislation, Reid invoke the ghosts of Democrats past, claiming that Republicans tried to block emancipation and civil rights for blacks.

Like most Liberals, and as I point out in my book The BIG Black Lie, Reid is trying to revise the racist history of the Democrat Party and better yet, to transfer it to the Republican Party. You would too if you had the racist history of the Democrat.

After losing what Democrats deemed “The War of Northern Aggression”—aggression of which came at the hands of Republicans honoring the Constitution—Democrats interpreted things as depicted here:

“Instead of restoring the Union, it [the Republican Party] has, so far as in its power, dissolved it, and subjected ten states, in time of profound peace, to military despotism and Negro supremacy.”  —Platform of the Democratic Party, 1868

Apparently Democrats were still smarting from losing all their free labor, as well as their endless supply of sex toys. In an effort to intimidate blacks to allow “off the record” slavery and further oppression that the Democrats missed so much, they ramped up the efforts of the intimidation arm of their party known as the KKK.

This group of rascals rode around in white sheets scaring black and white Republicans, and occasionally hanging blacks who they considered “uppity.”  To be considered uppity to a Democrat included things like a black man looking at a white woman, or perhaps a grown black man speaking up for himself.  One of the worse things you could do as a black person was to learn to read.  Now that was considered uppityness of the highest order and almost guaranteed a black person a lynching.

Republican responded by proposing legislation against the lynching of black folks, as early as 1870 with finally passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1871.

Since 1909 Democrats voted 209 times against anti-lynching legislation put forth by Republicans.  Here’s an easier way to understand what I just said.  Democrats voted 209 times to allow the lynching of black people.  You can see from the quote below the prevailing thought of Democrats throughout history on this issue:

“Mr. President, the crime of lynching . . . is not of sufficient importance to justify this legislation.” –Sen. Claude Pepper (D., Fla.), 1938

Another famous Democrat icon of “uncivil rights”, namely “Lynchum” Baines Johnson voted against this bill as well.

Democrat icon FDR, the keeper of all that is holy in the Democrat Party loved black people so much that he appointed fellow Democrat and racist segregationist James Byrmes to the Supreme Court in 1941.  Here is Byrnes in his own words in 1919:

“This is a white man’s country, and will always remain a white man’s country.”

Byrne was later appointed Secretary of State by Harry S. Truman in 1945.  Truman you may not know was a member of the KKK in his home state, though Liberal revisionist said he did this only because it was politically expedient.  I guess the incineration of 80,000 Japanese non-combatants in Nagasaki, with the second atomic bomb—a bomb that historians now say should have never been dropped—was politically expedient as well.  But hey, he just killed a bunch of Japs, right?  I think the Democrats called them “Yellow N*ggers” at the time.

Nevertheless the KKK flourished so much so that Democrat Senator Hugo Black lauds them for helping him in his career in politics, as witnessed in this statement.

“This passport which you have given me is a symbol to me of the passport which you have given me before. I do not feel that it would be out of place to state to you here on this occasion that I know that without the support of the members of this organization I would not have been called, even by my enemies, the ‘Junior Senator from Alabama.’ ” —Hugo Black, accepting a life membership in the Ku Klux Klan upon his election to the U.S. Senate as a Democrat from Alabama, 1926

After receiving his “Democrat Lifetime Achievement Award” there was more good news to come for Hugo, as FDR appointed him to the Supreme Court in 1937.  A white Black was now able to legally oppress black Blacks…and Johnsons, Jacksons, well you get the point.

So where are we today in the Democrats care and feeding of black folks, their philanthropy to people of color?  One only has to read the words of the Liberal icon of racial virtue, LBJ, credited for single-handedly helping the “lowly Negro” by ushering in The Great Society.  Who better than to explain the idea of The Great Society and the part blacks were to play, than its author LBJ, as he proclaimed in 1957:

“These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference. For if we don’t move at all, then their allies will line up against us and there’ll be no way of stopping them, we’ll lose the filibuster and there’ll be no way of putting a brake on all sorts of wild legislation. It’ll be Reconstruction all over again.”

Kevin & FDRHere’s the wrap:

Harry Reid would love to put the history of the Democrats on the Republicans or more importantly cover up the GREAT history of Republicans, the real champions of civil rights.  Reid would love to pass yet another scurrilous plan that will do nothing but enslave blacks even more, because that is the idea of The Great Society.

Reid and his ilk are complicit in the destruction of black America, and worse yet, like Margaret Sanger instructed, Democrats are using black “leaders” to do so. And when that doesn’t work, the Democrats have their new and improved version of the KKK, the SEIU thugs to beat blacks back onto the plantation.

If America is looking for a teachable moment, Reid certainly obliged.  The more things change, the more they stay the same.

That’s my rant!

Kevin Jackson's hilarious take on Race-Pimping: The Multi-Trillion Dollar Business of Liberalism!

Enjoy this excerpt from the book:

"Meanwhile, you are firmly in control. If (actually, when) you experience problems with poverty, crime, gangs, lack of urban development in cities where you have a black mayor, a black congressman, a black city manager, a black superintendent of schools, a black county treasurer, a black chief of police, a black fire chief, blacks on the county Board of Supervisors, blacks on the school board, etc., find ONE white man, preferably a Republican to blame for all those problems. If one doesn’t exist, don’t be afraid to refurbish one, even if you have to blame Republican Presidents George W. Bush, Ronald Reagan, Herbert Hoover, or T.R. Roosevelt."

    Wow, what a history lesson. Too bad they don’t teach real history in our public school, but that would defeat the agenda that the racist left has. What galls me is that the Republican Party was created by abolitionist for the specific purpose to end slavery, yet they get the bad rap as being the party for slavery because of the public ignorance of history. The demoncrats have been clever by transferring their sins onto their opponents. Especially since their opponents won’t clear the record and fight back it seems any more because nothing’s worse in our society now than being branded a racist. Even if it’s an act of slander.

  • Karen

    I was just dying to hear your take on this one and you summed it up nicely and explained it eloquently as always. Equating the requirement to pay your own medical bills with the true horror that was slavery is reprehensible. But the Dems love to re-write history. Like taking no responsibility for the current economic crisis when they threatened to filibuster the legislation which would have prevented it.

  • Jim Schurmann

    Kevin great rant as always. I love the way you add quotes to give credence to your points even though the trolls tend to overlook them.

    Do you think that is why the Dems. resist school vouchers? They don’t want the blacks to get uppity.

  • Kevin Jackson

    @Jim – You are exactly right, that Dems WANT to keep blacks stupid! The more things change…

  • Kevin Jackson

    @Karen – Yes this blog was a request, though I wanted to weigh in. I wish the mainstream conservative types had the guts to cover this!

  • Kevin Jackson

    @madmath1 – Yes, the Dems are sneaky “fatherless children!”

  • http://google Janelle

    Think about 2010 and vote. Then keep your eye on your elected rep and make sure they know their position is temporary, unless they actually deliver smaller government, less tax and less regulation. Tell your reps to stop >sponsoring> bills. If they are too inept to write legislation, who needs them?

  • Mick

    Harry Reid’s comments on the Senate floor are so typical of the democrats when they can’t get their way. Today it was Chris Dodd’s turn to be disgusting and pathetic. The guy has to be pushing 70 and he was ranting and raving about his lovely daughters. They are 4 and 8 years old. He even admitted they should be his grandkids Further stated he hopes that someday he’ll be fortunate enough to be a grandfather. Guess the old geezer didn’t realize how dumb he sounded but thats why his political party should be called dumbocrats.

  • ny2fl2009

    The man is a moron. Let’s give him the medicare he is way overdue for…and get him out.

  • jj solari

    damned if i wasnt actually paying a little attention on this one. who knew that was possible.

  • Doug

    Kevin another rub in the nose to the dumbocrats. They are the party of more than just slavery. Harry Reid is a crook and an absolute Imbecile. Actually it is insulting to an imbecile.

    The dumbocrats cannot count, add or subtract and know no history other than what they make it to be themselves. No wonder that need to control the schools and media as that is the only way for them to get a hearing.

    If this were ancient Greece or Rome they would be laughed out of the place with the drivel and nonsense that they espouse.

    harry reid is as crooked as they come and should be prosecuted for his business dealings which the ethics committee overlooked as all dumocrats do, ( jefferson, Dodd Frank, Charlie Rangel the rangler ect, ect, yes even the Rupublicans have this problem but at least we get rid of ours when they screw up. Their Dumbocrats an Liberals motto is do as I say and do not follow what I do.

    I think floggings and stocks in the public squares should be brought back for corrupt politicians as well as harsh jail with cells with violent criminals to teach them a lesson.

    Actually that may not be a good ideas as they may give the violent criminals some more ideas and make them more dangerous.

    We have it equally as bad here except we have no choices as thay are all in bed with teh same Union people

  • Shaun

    Great post Kevin.

    I heard you tonight on the Michael Berry show here in Houston and had to check you out. Yours is a voice that needs to be heard by many in today’s America. Run for an office that I can vote for and you can count on my vote. Until then I will spread the word about your site. Keep up the good work and maybe together we can all change this country back to what it was ment to be…. A land of opportunity for all those who are wise enough to take advantage of it and smart enough to protect it.

  • http://google gh

    The only good we might get from the present political dilemna, is that the gross nature of it all is so palpable, the American Public can see it so clearly we don’t need Windex! And, for the first time, I learned the true nature and agenda of Progressives, as well as the length of time basically, this scheme has been in the works. Never again, will Americans simply be in denial in the voting booth.

  • JLWatkins

    I was refered to your site by a friend who also heard you on the Berry program today. I work for a large communication company. I won’t mention it’s name, but it’s one of the most hated communication companies in America.I have been telling my African-American co-workers the same truth you present here about the Democratic party for years. When those that actually listened with an open mind and heart to what I said, they just grew quite and I could tell that the wheels were spinning and they were seeing things in a different light. Yet during last years campaign all of that went down the tubes. Whites and Blacks alike fell to Obama’s eloquence and charm to the point where the issues didn’t matter. Only the feel good aspect of living to see the 1st Black president, and damn the issues. Too bad huh?

  • Kevin Jackson

    @Doug – Thanks for the visit and the great comment!

  • Kevin Jackson

    @Shaun – Michael was a gracious host to allow me to pimp my website and book! Glad to have your support!

  • Kevin Jackson

    @gh – Agreed, that it’s easy to see the game these days. We will get the country back, because of “transparency!”

  • Kevin Jackson

    @JL – Thanks to your friend and you as well. Glad you are speaking to blacks about race. No need to run from the subject as a conservative, particularly Republican. Thanks for the visit, and I hope you find my blog an interesting perspective.

  • Kevin Jackson

    @Janelle – I am all about the 2010 elections. I will get Liberals unemployed in DROVES!

  • Kevin Jackson

    @Martha – No public office in my future, but I will continue doing what I am doing!

  • Martha

    Kevin I listened to you on the Michael Berry show tonight. I couldn’t wait to get home and check out your website. Hope you run for office in the near future.

  • Rich

    Another great blog, Kevin. I volunteer at a VFD bingo and talk to many there and was pleasantly surprised last year by the number of black members that were against Obama and understood what you are saying. Unfortunately, there were also many wearing the Obama T-shirts and buttons that didn’t care to hear any criticism of the One at all. Keep up the fight, I will talk to as many as will listen receptively.

  • Mike

    Great rant again Kevin. One of your best. Loved the quote from the Democratic Party platform. Amazing how Reid ignored the fact that the only KKK member in the Senate is from HIS party. Keep fighting the good fight!

  • Kevin Jackson

    @Rich – There is a saying, “Life is tough, but it’s really tough when you’re stupid!” Those black folks enthralled by Obama are living life stupid!

  • thug life

    I was a lifelong democrat until the 2008 primary. I couldn’t believe the Democrats were so mean and vicious against Hillary, not to mention Sarah Smile never had a chance, although my spouse and I both voted for McCain and was so thrilled Sarah was his running mate.

    I am now an Independent Voter and will never fall in line just because a candidate has a “D”, “R” or “I” behind their name.

    The thing that erks me to the nth degree is how everyone says that they want a color blind society but always addresses people based on the color of their skin, go figure!

  • Thomas


    Heard you last night on the Micheal Barry program here in Houston. You were great, please keep up the good work and if you ever come to Houston, let us know. I would love to hear speak and maybe a chance to shake your hand.

  • the boc

    Nice to see the trolls are left speechless on this one! Harry Reid looks like one happy individual in that picture–

  • Durwin Speidel

    I also heard your comments on Michael Barry Show last night. I hope Michael makes you a regular. It was refleshing to hear your points and really enjoyed listening to you. Good luck to your future projects.

  • Dana

    It is SO important that you keep shouting from the roof tops. This fraud on Black America will not stop until the true conservative black leaders start screaming the truth from their pulpits or soap boxes or radio shows. The libs got Jackson and Wright and Sharpton in their pockets and they are the ones leading the scam on black Americans. Sickening!

    I’m white, I can talk about this to my black friends until I’m blue in the face; but my words fall on deaf ears because they don’t trust me. And why should they? They’ve been taught since birth that all whites think they are superior to blacks and not to be trusted.

    Kevin, a challenge for you. Write a “Slavery for Dummies” book (and no, I do not mean blacks are dumb, so just calm down readers). Include all the facts and quotes about how the dems have and continue to work to keep blacks (and anyone poor) enslaved. Maybe then our country will crack open a book and read the facts.

  • jj solari

    that “slavery for dummies” thing sounds like a good idea. i know i was reading that bit of slavery history above that you blogged and i was totally absorbed. i kept saying this cant be a black guy talkin’. it’s hard for anything to rivet my attention that aint on a brass pole. but this rant did it.

  • the boc

    @Kevin Jackson-
    Are you ever coming through Atlanta??

  • Scotty Starnes


    I have had this same debate with Liberals for years. Since taking over, and corrupting, our education system, Liberals have attempted to change, not only their history, but American history.

    It amazes me that the Democratic Party tricked millions into believing they are the party of “civil rights.” Their party was founded on a pro-slavery platform but if you would ask any young democrat, they would call you ignorant.

    I like to debate liberals with facts and it drives them insane when you tell them to look at how Democrats have voted on civil rights. Point out that Democrats voted against the 13th, 14th and 15th amendments. Point out how Democrats voted against the Civil Rights Acts of 1875, 1957 and 1964 and you will here silence.

    Harry Reid is a liberal moron who is bankrupt of any knowledge of history. I hope the people of Nevada vote his stupidity out of the Senate.

    Keep up the good work telling the truth by using facts. We both know that facts and logic drive liberals insane.

  • Doug Edelman

    GREAT RANT, Kev!

    Keep confounding them with facts, truth, logic and wisdom!! They have no defense, and they come to that battle completely unarmed!

  • FA

    Great rant, Kevin! I am shocked that the trolls haven’t come out yet. I guess there is just nothing to say when they are presented with facts.

    I love good ole Harry…he just threw the toe-tag on the democratic party for the next elections.
    I wonder if the media (other than Fox) is going to show republican responses to this ludicrous bunch of bs…..

  • FA

    After thinking about it…I have to wonder if a bunch of these self-absorbed ego laden retards are sitting in a room together ‘daring’ each other to one-up the last dumbocrap’s pblic lie.
    Its like they think they have the Republican party so beaten down that they think they can say anything and get away with it.
    Eventually there will be a straw. I hope this is that straw, but if it isn’t there will have to be one soon. they can’t keep spewing these lies and expect everyone to sit there and not say anything.
    The media can’t squelch it forever in this digital age.

    I wish Fox News would grow the balls to create a television headline that says, “You Lie!!!!” “…Mr. Reid.”

    What we need to do is ‘trick’ the lamestream media into making a big deal out of something so that 2 things will come to the forefront: 1) The lie stated by the Dumbocraps & 2) The fact that a news program says it was a lie.
    The result when this happens is one of two things…either Fox news would have to issue an apology or Harry Reid would have to acknowledge that he did lie.


  • Rod of Daytona

    Excellent rant. After Harry Reid’s “…fractured fairy tale of history…” I came across another op-ed that compliments yours and would recommend checking it out.

    It is:

  • jj solari

    the trolls dont come here anymore because they have learned that their puny hatred is being met with righteous wrath.

  • FA

    Can I get an A-Men? Halleluia!

  • Mick


    If you want to hear a troll watch MSNBC’s Chris (girlie-boy) Mathews spin Harry Reid! Obama sends chills up his leg….he sits there and swoons and squirms like a 14 year old girl. He’s quite pathetic. Even though he’ll disgust you with his blab you’ll change channels laughing.

    Like your term dumboCRAPS much better than dumbocrats.

  • Kevin Jackson

    Great comments, ALL! The trolls visit occasionally, but I don’t worry about them. They quickly find out that this blog is a “contact sport!” You folks are great at sending the trolls packing, allowing me to keep pushing the message! Thanks for all of you!
