The Democrat Party's Long andShameful History of Bigotry and Racism
http://gopcapitalist.tripod.com/democratrecord.html A common attack upon conservatives and republicans by the ultraleft is to engage in whathas come to be known as "playing the race card" but is more accurately described as racialMcCarthyism. Hardly a day goes by without a member of the far left wing falsely accusingconservatives of racism, bigotry, and a wide array of similar nasty things. They are not onlydishonest, but they often border on the absurd, as in NAACP leader and hyper bigot JulianBond's recent implication to his organization that Bush administration officials supportedconfederate slavery. Amazingly, Bond's statements went without condemnation from theradical Democrat party or others in his organization.Not surprisingly, in all the lies and accusations of racism by the radical left wing, the truthbecomes distorted not only about the Republicansbut also the Democrats who make theseaccusations themselves. For instance, you may or may not have heard Democrat SenatorRobert Byrd's outburst of racist bigoted slurs, more specifically the "n-word," on nationaltelevision in March of 2001. Amazingly, this incident of blatant racism on national televisiondrew barely a peep from the NAACP, Jesse Jackson, Julian Bond, Mary Frances Berry, or anyof the other ambulance chasers who purport themselves to be the leaders of the civil rightsmovement.In contrast, the main source of well deserved criticism for Byrd's racist outburst came notfrom any of the so called leaders of the civil rights movement but from Republican MajorityLeader Dick Armey (source). The race hustlers Jackson, Mfume et al turned a blind eye
towards this act of racism by one of their own party, at most issuing an unpublicized slap onthe wrist, or, as was more often the case, making not a peep. But where the race hustlersturn a blind eye and spew their lies, it is up to conservatives to set the record straight withthe truth.
In response to the growing practice of racial McCarthyism by prominent left wingDemocrats, it is necessary to expose the truth about the Democrat Party's recordon Civil Rights:
I. Acts of Bigotry by Prominent Democrats and Leftists:
Franklin Delano Roosevelt:
Franklin Roosevelt, the long time hero and standard bearer of the Democrat Party, headed up and implemented one of the most horrible racist policies of the 20th Centurythe Japanese Internment Camps during World War II. Rooseveltunilaterally and knowingly enacted Japanese Internment through the use of presidentialExecutive Orders9066and 9102 during the early years of the war. These orders single- handedly led to the imprisonmentof an estimated 120,000 law abiding Americans of Japanese ancestry, the overwhelming majority of them natural born second and thirdgeneration American citizens. Countless innocents lost their property, fortunes, and, in thecase of an unfortunate few, even their lives as a result of Roosevelt's internment camps,camps that have been accurately described as America's concentration camps. Perhaps mosttelling about the racist nature of Roosevelt's order was his clearly expressed intention toapply it almostentirely to Japanese Americans, even though America was also at war withGermany and Italy. In 1943, Roosevelt wrote regarding concerns of German and Italian Americans that they t0o would share in the fate of the interned Japanese Americans, notingthat "no collective evacuation of German and Italian aliens is contemplated at this time."Despite this assertion, Roosevelt did exhibit his personal fears about Italian and German Americans, and in his typical racist form he used an ethnic stereotype to make hispoint.Expressing about his position on German and Italian Americans during World War II,Roosevelt stated “I don’t care so much about the Italians, they are a lot of opera singers, butthe Germans are different. They may be dangerous.” Roosevelt also appointed two notorious segregationists to the United States Supreme Court.Roosevelt appointed South Carolina segregationist Democrat
Jimmy Byrnes
to the court.Roosevelt later made Byrnes a top advisor, where the segregationist earned the nickname “assistant president.” Byrnes was Roosevelt’s second choice behind Harry Truman for the VPnod in his 1944 reelection bid. Roosevelt also appointed segregationist Democrat Senator
Hugo Black 
of Alabama to the court. Black was a former member of the Ku Klux Klan with anotorious record of racism himself.
Hugo Black:
 A former Democrat Senator from Alabama and liberal U.S. Supreme CourtJustice appointed by FDR, Hugo Black had a lengthy history of hate group activism. Black was a member of the Ku Klux Klan in the 1920's and gained his legal fame defendingKlansmen under prosecution for racial murders. In one prominent case, Black provided legalrepresentation to Klansman Edwin Stephenson for the hate-induced murder of a Catholicpriest in Birmingham.
 A jury composed of several Klan members acquitted Stephenson of the murder, reportedlyafter Black expressed Klan gestures to the jury during the trial. In 1926 Black sought andwon election as a Democrat to the United States Senate after campaigning heavily to Klanmembership. He is said to have told one Klan audience "I desire to impress upon you asrepresentatives of the real Anglo-Saxon sentiment that must and will control the destinies of the stars and stripes, that I want your counsel."In the Senate Black became a staunch supporter of the liberal New Deal initiatives of FDR and a solid opponent of civil rights legislation, including a filibuster of an anti-lynchingmeasure. Black led the push for several New Deal programs and was a key participant inFDR's court packing scandal. Roosevelt appointed Black, a loyal ally, to the U.S. SupremeCourt. During the Senate confirmation of Black's nomination, the issue of his strong Klanaffiliations caused a public controversy over his appointment.Following the confirmation Roosevelt claimed ignorance of Black's Klan past, though thisclaim was dubious at best. Black's first Senate election, which occurred with Klan support,had been covered nationally a decade earlier in 1926. Black's Klan affiliations were a wellknown partof his political background and received heavy coverage in the newspapers atthe time of his appointment. On the court, Black became a liberal stalwart. He also continuedhis career of supporting racism by authoring the opinion in favor of FDR's Japaneseinternment program in the infamous Korematsu ruling.
Senator Robert Byrd, D-WV 
: Byrd is a former member of the Ku Klux Klan and iscurrently the only national elected official with a history in the Klan, a well known hategroup. Byrd was extremely active inthe Klan and rose to the rank of “Kleagle,” an officialKlan membership recruiter. Byrd once stated that he joined the Klan because it was effectivein "promoting traditional American values" (Source). Byrd's choice of words speak volumes about his bigotry considering the fact that the Klan isa notorious hate group, and the racist "values" it promotes are anything but American. Oneof the earliest criticisms of Byrd's Klan ties came in 1952 when he was running for Congress.Byrd responded by claiming that he had left the Klan in 1943 while noting that "(d)uring thenine years that have followed, I have never been interested in the Klan." Byrd was lying,however, as he engagedin correspondence with a Klan Imperial Wizard long after he claimsto have ended his ties with the hate group.In a letter to the Klan leadership(Source) dated 3 years afterhe purported to have ended his ties with them, Byrd wrote "I am a former kleagle of the Ku Klux Klan in Raleigh Countyand the adjoining counties of the state. The Klan is needed today as never before and I amanxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia." Byrd continued his racist diatribe "It isnecessary that the order be promoted immediately and in every state of the Union" andfollowed with a request for assistance from the hate group's leadership in "rebuilding theKlan in the realm" of West Virginia.Byrd's racism extends far beyond his Klan membership. In a letter he wrote on the subject of desegregating the armed forces, Byrd escalated his racist rhetoric to an appalling level. Inthe letter, Byrd vowed that he would never fight in an integrated armed services noting"rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise
