Democrats have found it a useful tool to label people based on vicious shallow stereotypes. They have no understanding of us, yet they will call us the most foul names at the drop of a hat. They pre-judge us. As in prejudiced. As in bigot.
Ms. Judy Jennings is the Democrat nominee for State Board of Education place 10. She had a “push poll” that asked (with words to the effect): “Would you be less likely to vote for Marsha Farney (her Republican opponent) if you knew that she spoke at a white supremacist event?”
Uhhhh….wait a minute. I believe that she was talking about the Tea Party gathering in Georgetown on the 4th of July week end.
I was at that event.
I have been called a bigot and I am outraged.
It is pointless to wallow in the past: we need to learn from it and let it go. The evil people involved in slavery in this country are all dead. But since Ms. Jennings and the Democrats are slandering me, I feel that I must answer them.
The Democrat Party is
- The Party of Slavery
- A Democrat Judge decided the Dred Scott case
- The Party of Secession
- The Party of Jim Crow
- The Party of the KKK
- Bull Connors was the Democrat that turned the dogs loose in Birmingham.
My family was of Puritan stock in Massachusetts. Their brethren in England developed the idea that slavery was not only wrong but evil. This was the first time in human history that this belief was held by a significant number of people. They were able to get legislation through Parliament to outlaw the World Wide Slave Trade and authorize use of the British Navy to end said trade. I am proud of what they did.
An ancestor of mine was the first publisher of the most powerful book of abolitionist propaganda, i.e. Uncle Tom’s Cabin. I am proud of what he did.
Some 200 of my ancestors thought that preserving the Union and ending slavery was so important that they fought and killed and bled in the Civil War. One ancestor dropped out of high school to join the 2nd Wisconsin Volunteers. They fought in most every major battle in the north and my ancestor was severely wounded at Gettysburg. The 2nd Wisconsin suffered 70% casualties at Gettysburg. Another ancestor won the Congressional Medal of Honor at a battle on the Newport River in North Carolina. I am proud of what they did.
As a Christian, I believe that Jesus gave his blood to wash away our sins. Then my ancestors gave their blood to wash the stain of slavery from the robe of this Republic. I take pride in what my family has done.
To say that I, in some way, have done something similar to or have some relationship to what Democrats have done is a deep and bitter insult to me, my family, and to my heritage.
Ms. Jennings words are an unforgivable insult.
Alexander Hamilton Stevens was a Democrat that became the Vice President of the Confederacy. He gave a speech in Savannah, GA called the “corner stone” speech as it described the corner stone of the Confederacy, i.e. the fundamental building block upon which all else rests. It is refreshingly honest as it cuts through all of the “horse puckey”.
On the Dred Scott case:
