Interesting Reminders of the Democratic Party's Race Obsession


Part of the same political card:

Hard to tell from today's Democratic Party except now they pretend to like black people.


  1. But they pretend REALLY hard!!!

  2. Democrat toadies might argue that those posters are over a hundred and fifty years old. True enough, but to my mind denying that they never did that means they really haven't changed. If you go to the Democrat party website, they are proud enough of their history that they devote a page to it. Here is how they start it:

    "For more than 200 years, our party has led the fight for civil rights, health care, Social Security, workers’ rights, and women’s rights...."

    I don't mind if you think I can't possibly be telling the truth. After all, would the Democrat party officially lie? Yes! And the page has gone through at least one redesign since I found it so it seems intentional. Here's the url: https://democrats.org/who-we-are/our-history/

  3. Clayton, how many conservative white candidates for statewide or national office can you name who got the support of a majority of non-white voters in their district? If you can't name any, what does that say about the post-1960s conservative argument that we shouldn't care that legal immigration is transforming the white majority into a minority?

    These questions seem to offend ordinary conservatives (particularly Boomers) so much that they refuse to think through the foreseeable political consequences of doctrinaire color-blind policy. You guys will bequeath to your children an America more divided than it ever was during your lifetime, but you don't seem to reflect on the burden you're inflicting on your descendants.

  4. Che: I understand Cuban-Americans are leaning strongly Trump, and when single-issue conservatives causes are on the ballot (same-sex marriage in California) blacks and Hispanics voted conservative. Lots of WASPs were concerned about non-WASP European immigrants and I would say, wrongly concerned.
