Props to that dude for recognizing the KKK tries to find comfort with the right and attacking them instead of pretending they're secret democrats.

The "kkk are dems" line might be the most annoying trope in modern American politics. I'm not sure I believe that anyone sincerely believes it, they just collectively pretend to.

u/philsubby Sep 22 '22

And the popular response for why so many black people are democrats is "They're brainwashed." You don't think calling the 96% of black voters who voted for Biden brainwashed is racist? No actually, we're protecting them!

I do feel like biden is racist lol and he just trys to act like he is not to stay in his constituents good graces.

He is. We had to vote between two racists. This time we chose the lesser.

Why do you think so many black people voted for him then? Just lesser of two evils?

I’m not black and didn’t vote for either of them so I can’t say

u/lurker_cant_comment Sep 23 '22

Having looked into it, I don't buy this at all.

The biggest examples always brought up where his opposition to busing as a solution to desegregation and the 1994 crime bill.

Except he was clear that he fully supported desegregation, he just thought busing wasn't going to work well to get there, and for the crime bill he was following prevailing opinion, including that of the leadership in the black community.

Context is everything when evaluating racism. Claiming something is racist because it could be read that way - especially when ignoring all the context surrounding that statement or idea - does not actually tell you whether the person who did that thing believes racist ideas.

From what I can see, sources claiming Biden is a racist are people or media with an axe to grind, and not once have I seen a case where a claim of "racism" against him held up in full context.

I don’t believe you have given the examples in this thread alone.

u/lurker_cant_comment Sep 23 '22

Forgive me for not reading deep into the comments on this thread, because the only one I saw in my perusal was relating to the crime bill.

But feel free to enlighten me on these other cases. I'm all ears.

I'm sure you've made a good-faith effort at objective research to see if those claims bear out in truth and not just in an echo chamber. Right?

u/Eatingfarts Sep 23 '22

Yeah, black people probably don’t know what’s best for them. Best to give their votes the white folk who know better.

Not discussing this specific case, but there are a lot of people who vote against their own interest. That's kinda the main idea of /r/LeopardsAteMyFace.

But outside of reddit, you will have gay people voting for anti-gay candidates, Mexican people voting for anti-Mexican candidates, etc.

People don't always vote for what's best for them, because most voters don't do due diligence, and a lot of people don't even really think about or understand what their vote means. Or they only care about a single issue despite the consequences of their chosen candidates' other positions.

u/BR0STRADAMUS Sep 25 '22

Most people are single issue voters. Someone's sexuality or ethnicity doesn't inherently define their ethics or point of view.

1

u/i_will_let_you_know Oct 15 '22

Yes, but if you're voting for someone who would literally strip you of your human rights instead of a person who won't, you're voting against your own best interests. Obviously. Any other single issue that doesn't affect you can't possibly top that.

It doesn't matter if you hate gun control if voting for it means you would be executed by the government for being trans. The former does not outweigh the latter.

And generally single issue voting is unwise outside of those kinds of extreme scenarios.

u/ChocolateBunnyButt Sep 23 '22

It’s not that they’re brainwashed. Black people started voting democrat in the 1930’s, while democrats obviously still super racist. It has nothing to do with brainwashing. Democrats just are willing to give federal money to poor, which buys votes. And do you a long history of racism and culture wars, black people are extremely improvised in america. Giving them money is an effective way to buy their vote, in general.

u/philsubby Sep 23 '22

Do you think maybe black voters want what's best for the country and their vote isn't bought?

u/SohndesRheins Sep 23 '22

Black voters want the same thing that all voters want, what is best for themselves.

u/RexInvictus787 Sep 23 '22

In any demographic, the percentage of people that would vote what’s best for the country over something that directly benefited them (assume in this hypothetical those two things are at odds) would be negligible.

I never said they were at odds. I'm sorry if I implied that.

u/RexInvictus787 Sep 23 '22

You didn’t, but never mind.

u/philsubby Sep 23 '22

The guy I'm responding to is making it seem like most black voters are like democrats give us more money, so there you go. I'm sure they have more reasons than that for voting like I assume most voters do. It's going to, black voters just want more welfare which is not good.

u/jffnc13 Sep 23 '22

Yeah, imagine if a Democrat politician said that if you don’t vote for him you ain’t black. That shit can only come from a Republican’s mouth.

A Republican wouldn't say that because hardly any black people vote Republican. Just say Biden said that and why you have an issue with it.

u/SohndesRheins Sep 23 '22

Actually 100% of black voters voted for Joe Biden, anyone who didn't vote for Uncle Joe isn't black, according to him at least.

u/StrongIslandPiper Sep 22 '22

Because they technically came from the democratic side before the great party realignment or the "party switch." They're not today, what we would consider democrats. But because of that simple historical fact, they like to act like the racists in their party are actually progressives, which is fucking wild and stupid, but people are easy to manipulate at the end of the day, so lots of them repeat this without even slightly thinking about it.

3

u/awfulsome Sep 23 '22

They deny the southern strategy happened, despite it being admitted to on record, and the change being obvious in how people voted starting in 1964. You can literally see a switch flip, as years of civil rights advocacy in the democratic party, and years of catering to southern racists in the republican party both come to a head when LBJ signed the Civil Rights Act. The parties have almost completely flipped from the GOPs inception. The first was the small vs big government flip that started with Wilson and completed with FDR, the second was social/civil rights changes, which started with FDR and completed with LBJ. Since then the parties have mostly stayed locked into this setting.

If people really wanna find out why don’t they just do some looking around and find a telegram chat or something for the klan and get the answer straight from them lol it’s so much mental gymnastics to think that the klan would vote for people who want more government control, more rights for women, less unfair treatment for colored and gay people, accept more refugees from south or the border, and distinct separation of church and state. It’s just a no brainer who the fucking klan would vote for lmao

u/BoomThroatPunch Sep 22 '22

When the kkk was an active organization and was committing terrorist acts, they were democrats. Now there’s like 3000 old white guys total and one black dude is dismantling them by being friends.

That’s no different than think of the black panthers as an old gone organization that fought for equality. The current black panthers are a recognized black supremacist hate group but no one knows they still exist.

Hard to say. Alot of people on the right just straight up ignore the party switch that happened in the 60s. (And forget the founder of the KKK was a Confederate General. Southern pride my ass.)

u/Sovarius Sep 22 '22

I have always hears tbat as true, but that was long before the parties switched. I am not learned on history that deeply but i figure the truth is approximately "the racists have always been conservative". I mean conservatives aren't necessarily racists just because, but racism is rooted in the principle of conserving older ways of life.

u/Terr_ Sep 22 '22 edited Sep 22 '22

Bruh, when the deep-south flipped from super-Democratic to super-Republican, you honestly think that was because the people there, like... changed who they voted for? Impossible! Obviously all the Democratic racists randomly decided to uproot their families and move to every other corner of the country and adopt new identities, while non-racist-Republicans decided that the best place for their families was to move into the empty homes left behind in the south while impersonating the former owners, so that millions of citizens quickly migrated around the nation in total secrecy by perfect coincidence. /S

But seriously, just side-scroll through the Presidential election map over time and compare pre-1956 versus post-1964, with an eye towards the Mississippi-Alabama-Georgia region. (I'd prefer a "shades of purple" version, but most of those are not time-scrollable.)

u/meee_51 Sep 22 '22

The republicans were formed as an anti-slaver party with their first president being Lincoln. The dems at the time were way more conservative. However in the decades leading up to the First World War, after reconstruction from the civil war (so like 1890 to 1914), economic situations led the democrats to enact really progressive policies, especially once Teddy Roosevelt was elected, kicking off an era in american history called the progressive era. This switch of the parties ended up being permanent which is why today the dems are progressive and the reps are conservative

u/Sovarius Sep 22 '22

Thanks for the quick eli5. Never knew! How does that relate to the rise of the kkk? The kkk was democrats originally or was that after?

u/2girls1cupofjoe Sep 22 '22

Democrats ran the South from basically our founding till Reagan. The KKK was a paramilitary terror organization started by Confederate veterans to terrorize newly emancipated blacks. After the Civil War the Republicans essentially banned any former Confederate from holding political office, which is how Mississippi (or maybe Louisiana, this is all half remembered) elected the first black men to Congress. The Klan was used to suppress black people politically, socially, economically, etc. The Republicans essentially made a deal with Democrats after the election of 1870 (which was essentially fraudulent on both sides) Republicans let the South off their leash, Republicans keep the white house. Then the Dems do Jim Crow.

u/IsaacDub Sep 23 '22

The way I see it, it's more of a heritage thing than a pro-slavery thing. I don't live in the south. I'm not going to pretend like I know what anybody is thinking. I do know that the Republican party is an Anti-Slavery party. They fought a war to stop it because they believed that all men are created equal. That's what the Founding Fathers had in mind. We are all equals. The Democrats were very much against that idea. I don't think that there are a bunch of slavery-loving racists running around in either party.

u/NightsKing13 Sep 22 '22

Malcolm X believes it. You should watch one of his most famous interviews where he talks about white males that are republicans and those that are democrats and how he refers to the republicans as wolves and democrats as foxes. And where he specifically mentions the foxes tricking sheep onto their dinner plates. He saw the writing on the wall way before anyone else could.

What he said back then still makes waves to this very day and yet people still can’t see it.

u/chrismamo1 Sep 22 '22

He also died 60 years ago. I'm talking about the modern Republican and Democratic parties, in 2022. People probably don't see what he was talking about today because it's been more than half a century. Things change.

-4

u/NightsKing13 Sep 22 '22

You guys should really understand the Republican Party better. So here I’ll spell it out for you

Republican Party

Founded in 1854

First national convention in 1856 Promised to defeat “those twin relics of barbarism: polygamy and slavery” These ideas were spreading into western territories and republicans feared as the territories became states polygamy and slavery might become permanent parts of American life

Polygamy made women property the same way slavery made black people property

In 1860 when Abraham Lincoln became the first Republican President South Carolina tried to secede from the union.

The Civil war ensued which was the bloodiest war in American history. This war led to the 13th, 14th and 15th amendment.

13th amendment freed the slaves 14th amendment gave them citizenship 15th amendment gave them the right to vote

In 1870 the first black congressman and first black senator were sworn in. Both were Republicans

Every Black representative in the house until 1935 was a Republican. And every Black Senator until 1979 was a Republican.

First female member of Congress was a Republican. First Hispanic Governor and Senator were also Republicans First Asian Senator

In 1862 the Morrill Anti-Bigamy act was passed by a Republican controlled Congress. (This bill protected women’s rights) Put and end to polygamy.

In 1920 after 52 years of opposition by the Democratic Party the 19th amendment was ratified by a Republican Congress. This pressured Woodrow Wilson a Democratic President to drop his opposition against women’s rights.

In the final tally 59% of House Democrats and 41% of Senate Democrats supported women’s suffrage. 91% of House Republicans and 82% of Senate Republicans supported Women’s Suffrage. The war on women was clearly led by the Democratic Party

In the 1920’s Republican President Calvin Coolidge said “The rights of Blacks are just as sacred as those of any other citizen”

When Jesse Owens won 4 gold medals at the 1936 Berlin Olympics, Democratic President Franklin Roosevelt snubbed by not inviting him to the White House. Only White Olympian’s were invited to the White House.

In the 1950’s Republican President Dwight Eisenhower sent the first Airborne division to escort black students into Little Rock Central High. All because Arkansas Governor Orval Faubus (Democrat) refused to follow a court order to integrate the States public schools.

The Civil Rights act of 1960 outlawed poll taxes that were meant to keep Blacks from voting. This Bill was filibustered by 18 Democrats for 125 Hours. Not 1 Republican Senator opposed the Bill.

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 also survived a filibuster by Democrats with overwhelming Republican Support.

So what have Republicans done for women and black people lately? The answer is nothing. That’s because Republicans treat them as equals.

Democrats never have treated them as equals and they still don’t. They treat them as victims who aren’t capable of succeeding on their own. They treat them with contempt.

So yes there is a party with a long history of racism and sexism but it isn’t the Republicans.

And this is why Malcolm X said “the most dangerous man in the country is the white liberal male”

JFK was a liberal but by his views today he would come off as far right.

When you can’t control someone you shoot them. Hence why JFK, Lincoln, MLK and Malcom X were all shot by Democrats…..

u/beiberdad69 Sep 22 '22

I'm convinced this dude literally just woke up from a coma. He has such a clear recollection of the 1950's and 60's, but doesn't seem to be aware that we're literally a lifetime away from that. And he's still lying about a lot of stuff lmao, like how the civil rights act of 1964 was also opposed by a lot of Republicans, and it was signed into law by a democratic president.

No they did not. That’s a logical fallacy everyone has been pushing for the longest time. With 0 actual proof of that.

Just look at Biden “if you don’t vote for me you ain’t black”. He’s literally pandering and making people feel insecure about themselves if they choose to freely and openly vote against him.

But go ahead and keep believing false truths with 0 facts and evidence to back it up. Maybe one day you’ll open your eyes to see how the dems are still pushing division to control the masses.

8

u/Dirty_Lew Sep 22 '22

Lol. Yes they did. They’ve even tried to formally apologize:

In 2005, Republican National Committee chairman Ken Mehlman formally apologized to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) for exploiting racial polarization to win elections and ignoring the black vote.

Hate on the maga bunch all you want, but every single one of the MAGA people I know arent racist, dont care if you are gay, and dont act like ignorant assholes. The majority are regular people, who just think trump is good and would like to have him back. They may be the ignorant part, but they are people like an uncle of mine, a cousin, a coworker, a case manager, random people all over. Most dont say they are trump supporters unless they think you wont care.

But there are idiots and they get the attention.

I just hate it when people label every group as the same. They arent. Thats the same as stereotyping for politics. Everyone else may want to hate every republican and maga supporter, but thats denounces a lot of people for 1 belief or political choosing.

It's likely back home he's surrounded by Trump supporters, and there's no real pressure to change.

Calling him racist, xenophobic etc is not going to change his mind, it'll do the opposite.

If it's not crystal clear to them that nearly all racist leaders in the US are Republican leaders, they haven't been paying attention. That has been consistently and overwhelmingly true ever since the Southern Strategy.

In American politics, the Southern strategy was a Republican Party electoral strategy to increase political support among white voters in the South by appealing to racism against African Americans.
