DNC website caught lying about party’s civil rights record: Wasserman Schultz, Virginia Senate nominee Kaine involved.
(Page 2 of 2)
Hmmmm. What might have happened between the time Jefferson left the White House in 1809 — and the time the video picks up — in 1920?
Specifically, neither the new history and issues sections of the Obama-controlled, Wasserman-Schultz-run DNC website, not to mention the video, ever whispers a hint that the Democrats:
None of this stark, vicious and frequently violent racial history, much of it detailed in Bruce Bartlett’s Wrong on Race: The Democratic Party’s Buried Past, is mentioned on the new website.
There is no polite way to put it. This DNC website presentation is a lie.
A deliberate, willful and very big lie. Hiding from the young, the innocent and the unwary the cold, hard and true facts of the Democratic Party’s horrific racial history.
As we noted in this space four years ago when the Democrats were preparing to nominate then-Senator Obama, America’s liberal party was ruthless then when it came to concealing the long, ghastly tale of their culture of racism.
Here’s the party’s history section as preserved on their website in 2008. Alas for the DNC, this fancy-tale is still findable on the web here.
As we wrote at the time, the 2008 party history skips neatly from pre-Civil War 1848 and picks up again when “the 19th Century came to a close.” Effectively skipping all the history noted above. This is the same formula adopted by the 2010 video, except the video moves the clock further back to Jefferson’s presidency before performing the same trick of skipping to the dawn of the 20th century.
The party made another version of this same lie when redoing their website for 2010, saying, as captured by the Romantic Poet’s Weblog:
“Democrats are unwavering in our support of equal opportunity for all Americans. That’s why we’ve worked to pass every one of our nation’s Civil Rights laws….”
Given the sheer boldness of the lie — literally akin to writing a history of Germany that ends in 1933 and resumes in 1946, neatly skipping those historic trivialities of Adolf Hitler, the Nazis, and the mass murder of six million Jews (not to mention that small skirmish called World War II) — why is there any surprise, any surprise at all, at the recent repeated surfacing of the culture of racism — judging others by skin color — by Obama media allies and politicians?
This cultural rot has been the backbone of American liberalism and its political party the Democrats — for 212 years.
No wonder the DNC feels it has to lie.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
