The Racist, Discriminating Democrat Party
Ronn Torossian
April 19, 2014
The Democrat Party, the party of slavery, which openly practices the only form of discrimination that is acceptable today in American politics -- class warfare -- and discrimination against the successful, yesterday, for the third time in recent weeks, wrongly accused the Republican Party of racism.

Yesterday's folly saw New York Congressman Steve Israel assert that "to a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism and that's unfortunate." This follows remarks by Attorney General Eric Holder, who claimed at a forum on civil rights that the past five years in Washington have been marked by "unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly and divisive adversity." "If you don't believe that...you look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated yesterday by a House committee."

The reality is that Holder was treated appropriately -- as he is inept and this administration is constantly lying to the public. Americans indeed should know no color when inept people govern; they should be challenged and condemned. It is unfair to assert "racism" when caught lying and cheating as a way to defend yourself.

Earlier this week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi blamed racism as to why congressional Republicans do not want to act on comprehensive immigration reform, claiming "I think race has something to do with the fact that they're not bringing up an immigration bill." As the Republican National Committee rightly noted, "Democrats are desperate to try to discredit conservatives because they don't have the facts on their side."

The Democrats' claims are unfair, un-American, and most importantly, so untrue. It forces me, Ronn Torossian, to ask: Do the Democrats think minorities are stupid? Those practicing bias today are the Democrats who say if you are successful, it is permissible to discriminate.

When did the revisionist history commence about which party is racist? The Republican Party was born just prior to the Civil War for the sole purpose of combating slavery and it fought against the party of slavery. The Republican Party is the party of freedom and economic liberty and prosperity -- as it was then and now. The Democrat platform of the 1860s was a pro-slavery policy that sought to keep people enslaved.

In the 1950s and 1960s, the Democrat Party was the enforcer of "Jim Crow" laws and segregation. In 1964, there was a filibuster of the Civil Rights Act by Democrat Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV) which lasted 14 hours. The Act was crafted and supported by a vast number of Republicans in the Senate, while opposed by southern Democrat senators (including Al Gore Sr).

Today, the Democrats continue to keep people in place and pursue centralized government, as a further way for more government control, particularly over the poor. The Democrat Party seeks to tell people how to eat, raise their families, and in this administration, how to have healthcare.

The concepts of freedom and individualism, and pulling oneself up by one's bootstraps, are Republican values which should be embraced. The Democrats' continual race accusations offer an opportunity for Republicans -- which include Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz-- to jump on this discussion. The Democrats -- who wrote and enforced the Jim Crow laws -- have not and will not lead minorities (or the rest of this country) in the right direction.

While minorities -- wrongly -- overwhelmingly vote Democrat, why is it that jobs under this President for African-Americans continue to drop? Total numbers of employment-aged African-Americans in the workforce slid from 58.6 percent in June 2007, to 52.8 percent by August 2012. There is ample history and facts which can be shared to show the long history of the Democrats with racism.

After so many years of supporting liberals, conservatives must pursue a wide-ranging public relations campaign to remind all Americans to pursue smaller government and reduced spending as a way for all Americans to be more free, and have more opportunity. Yes, the Republican Party needs more diversity -- and perhaps the Democrats' continually raising of these issues is a way to create a campaign where dialogue with minorities can change the minds of many. The Democrats raise fear -- rather than facts.

Now that there has been an African-American President, it's time for all Americans to realize that liberty, freedom and opportunity come best with small government and economic freedom. The liberals' continued false accusations of race offer an opportunity the GOP must jump upon to educate minorities on the true facts of which party is best for all Americans.
