Do you know that there are many people in America today who don’t know that the institution of slavery was solely monopolized by the Democrat Party? That’s because liberals have gone out of their way to lessen the culpability of America’s most evil political party. In fact, liberals in academia, news media, Hollywood, the book industry, and alike, have all gone out of their way to create a fantastic story presented as fake history. Yes, I said fake history.
For example, in 1860, the year before the Civil War, no Republican owned a slave. It’s not that no Republican in the North owned a slave, or just Republican leaders didn’t own slaves, but that of the 4 million slaves in the United States, no Republican in the entire country owned a slave. This is an indisputable fact.
So, how does this fact not resonate today against the Democrat Party? Because liberals have written that fact out of existence by claiming that instead of the Democrat Party being responsible for the horrors of slavery, America is responsible for slavery, or the white man did it, the southerners did it, pretty much everybody did it except the actual people who did it, the Democrat Party. Everyone had a little bit of blame to go around, according to the liberals who purposely rewrote history to fit their own narrative, one that covers up any understanding that it was the Democrat Party alone that was responsible for slavery. Many northern Democrats worked with southern Democrats for the slave industry.
By claiming that America was responsible for slavery and not the actual culprits, liberals have been able to extract the Democrat Party from being known as the party of evil that it always was, and still is to this day.
So how is it legitimate to call it the Democrat Party Plantation even today?
There were five features of a slave plantation that were created by the Democrat Party and were in place on every slave plantation in the south. These five features were outlined by Kenneth M. Stampp in his piece titled The Peculiar Institution: Slavery in the Ante-Bellum South:
- Broken down and dilapidated and unsafe housing.
- Broken families.
- A high degree of violence required in order to hold the place together.
- Everybody gets a basic provision, but nobody gets ahead.
- Nihilism and despair. This is an intergenerational, ongoing, lasting way of life.
If you take a look at cities around the country today that have been run by Democrats for decades, some a hundred years, you will see the same features of slavery built into the Democrat Party welfare state, to make a permanent underclass of people who will be so dependent on government that they will keep voting Democrat in order to sustain what little bit they have to survive, and they will never be able to get ahead.
In Democrat-run black ghettos and Latino barrios you can see the five features of slavery.
Housing projects are falling apart, and many are unsafe for human beings to live in. The Democrat Party welfare state made rules that split families up, in most cases removing the man from the house, so that women and their children could receive benefits. With a man earning a salary, there might be less of a need for government help, so they had to go. The modern-day welfare state ensures that everyone gets just enough to survive, but not enough to be able to get ahead on your own. You can’t have a savings account, because you’re on government benefits, so you’re not supposed to be able to save money. You can’t get a job, or you’ll lose your financial aid and/or medical benefits for your kids. These things were built into the system on purpose, with the design to keep people dependent on government. They created a constituency legacy that depends on the party coming up with ways that make their constituents think their representatives are working hard for them, but nothing ever changes.
We see a high degree of violence breaking out in Democrat-run cities across the country, thanks to the spread of nihilism and despair by Democrat politicians who are constantly pushing the envelope, even to the point where elected officials are telling their supporters to go and harass people they disagree with in public, doxxing on social media, where leftists who don’t like what a popular figure of the opposite ideology has to say post their home addresses and telephone numbers so that people of a like mindset can go protest in front of their homes, scaring the hell out of their families.
Democrats blame America for the conditions poor minorities have to live in. The white man did it. Racism is how they explain away why it is that every Democrat-run city has the same problems no matter where the city is located in the country.
In every major city run by Democrats we see the same thing: Chicago, Philadelphia, Camden, Newark, Baltimore, Ferguson, Cleveland, Compton, St. Louis, etc., they all have the same exact problems: high unemployment, high drug and alcohol abuse, high government dependency, high property crime rates, large high school drop out rates, high gun violence, and it’s all because of progressive Democrats who have run these cities for decades, some a hundred years.
Progressive Democrat policies breed environments of poverty and crime. They are anti business, anti capitalist and anti people. They are based not on helping the people who live there to get ahead and rise up out of poverty, but to keep people dependent enough on government that they continue voting for the politicians who have schemed out a miserable existence for them, and hide their true intentions by placing blame on everyone but themselves.
We are in a culture war for the soul of the country. So far, it’s been a cold war of sorts, but can the outbreak of full-blown violence be that far away when you have politicians calling for it?
So, we can see that the Democrat Party has played by the same game book since its very creation. Abraham Lincoln once described slavery as, “You work and toil and earn bread, and I’ll eat it.” In other words, you work and I eat. Isn’t that how you could describe the modern-day progressive welfare state? You work for a living to raise a family and get ahead, and the government sees to it that other people eat with the wealth that you earned. You work and they eat.
