If black lives matter – and they surely do – the logical, rational, historical and practical course of action in 2016 is to vote Republican.

That may seem puzzling and counterintuitive, since Democrats Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton seem so closely aligned with the Black Lives Matter movement that blames police for systematically targeting minorities for abuse, discrimination and even murder.

But is there more to the story?

Indeed, there is.

Dinesh D’Souza’s courageous new book, “Hillary’s America,”and movie of the same name, deal with the way the Democratic Party defended slavery, perpetrated “Jim Crow” policies in the South after the War Between the States and fought tooth-and-nail against voting rights and civil rights legislation through much of the 1960s.

It’s a story also dealt with in shocking straightforward fashion in another bestselling book by Ben Kinchlow, “Black Yellow Dogs.”

It’s worth pointing out that D’Souza is an American citizen from India and Kinchlow is a black American.

They both portray the history the Democratic Party doesn’t want you to know – that systematic, institutional racism in America was exclusively a creation of that party beginning in 1832 and lasting through the mid-1960s.

You’ve heard of the Ku Klux Klan?

It was the military wing of the Democratic Party for 150 years.

Black Americans weren’t the only lynching victims of the Klan. Hundreds of white Republicans, the abolitionists and the party of equal rights, were murdered by the white-hooded racists along with black Americans.

It’s hard to believe today because this history is not taught in school, not found in college textbooks, not of any interest to the mainstream media and hardly remembered even by many Republicans today – even though we might vaguely recall that Abraham Lincoln was the first Republican president.

But that’s only part of the story sadly – even tragically – neglected at the Republican National Convention this week.

The worldview of the Democratic Party is still responsible for victimizing blacks and systematically reducing the population of African-Americans in a number of ways – albeit more covertly.

First, the Democrats’ friends in Planned Parenthood target black and minority communities for abortions.

The abortion rate for black women is almost four times that of white women. On average, 870 black babies are aborted every day in the U.S. It’s the Democratic Party alone that defends abortion on demand as a sacred right and that fights for taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood, far and away the biggest provider of abortion in the country.

But there’s more, too.

Today, the Democrats get 90 percent of the black vote by turning history on its head. They pretend to be advocates for “racial justice” by patronizing the black community, blaming America’s police officers for targeting blacks, promoting dependency on government wealth redistribution programs like food stamps and welfare and defending racist affirmative-action programs for minorities.

In addition, who is it that promotes the doctrinaire teaching of Darwinism in American schools and universities? The Democrats, who insist evolution is not a theory, but a fact. What are the ramifications of that?

It was Darwinism in the 19th century that promoted the notion of superior and inferior races – and justified the genocide that led directly to the Holocaust. (See from “Darwin to Hitler,” “Darwin’s Racists: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow,” “The Darwin Effect” and “The Dark Side of Charles Darwin.”

Who’s defending Darwinism today? Only one political party – the Democrats.


Who’s defending the disproportionate elimination of unborn black babies in America today? Only one political party – the Democrats.


Who overlooks black-on-black violence that results in the murder of thousands of mostly black males in America year after year? Only one party – the Democrats.
And who is it that defended slavery, Jim Crow racist policies, forced segregation, poll taxes and birthed and incubated for 130 years the vicious, violent racists of the Ku Klux Klan? Only one party – the Democrats.


For 130 years, blacks knew which party was their champion – the Republicans. Martin Luther King was a Republican. His parents were Republicans. Their parents were Republicans.

But, in the mid-1960s, the Democrats changed political tactics, determining there was a way to win black votes while still keeping their feet on their necks.
Believe it or not, that’s the Democratic Party of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

Today, they promote dependency, victimhood status and paternalism. Those policies have proven to be as destructive to the black family and black dignity as slavery. In effect, the Democratic Party has been building the “new plantation” for the black Americans.

Is that just my opinion?

No, it is shared by many courageous voices within the black community, including WND columnist Star Parker (See “Uncle Sam’s Plantation”), Deneen Borelli (See “Blacklash: How Obama and the Left Are Driving Americans to the Government Plantation”) and Jesse Lee Peterson (See “The Antidote”).
