Are Democrats the real racist?
Dear black democrat voters,
See how the white democrat plantation owners and the uppity blacks treat your every-day, normal black nominee for Senate? The real racists are the democrats and their White limousine liberal friends in the media. Please note the condescension in the air towards Mr. Alvin Greene from both the uppity blacks and the media.
Clyburn Calls on Feds to Probe South Carolina Senate Candidate
The No. 3 Democrat in the U.S. House called on federal authorities Thursday to investigate how an unemployed South Carolina military veteran entered and won the state's Democratic primary for U.S. Senate.
"Here is Alvin Greene, unemployed, he goes into the Democratic headquarters and pays $10,000. That's no little bit of money for an unemployed person," House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn, D-S.C., said. "This guy, who is he? Where did he come from?"

Acts of Bigotry by Prominent Democrats and Leftists:
Franklin Delano Roosevelt: Franklin Roosevelt, the long time hero and standard bearer of the Democrat Party, headed up and implemented one of the most horrible racist policies of the 20th Century – the Japanese Internment Camps during World War II. Roosevelt unilaterally and knowingly enacted Japanese Internment through the use of presidential Executive Orders 9066 and 9102 during the early years of the war. These orders single-handedly led to the imprisonment of an estimated 120,000 law abiding Americans of Japanese ancestry, the overwhelming majority of them natural born second and third generation American citizens. Perhaps most telling about the racist nature of Roosevelt's order was his clearly expressed intention to apply it almost entirely to Japanese Americans, even though America was also at war with Germany and Italy. In 1943, Roosevelt wrote regarding concerns of German and Italian Americans that they too would share in the fate of the interned Japanese Americans, noting that "no collective evacuation of German and Italian aliens is contemplated at this time." Despite this assertion, Roosevelt did exhibit his personal fears about Italian and German Americans, and in his typical racist form he used an ethnic stereotype to make his point. Expressing about his position on German and Italian Americans during World War II, Roosevelt stated “I don’t care so much about the Italians, they are a lot of opera singers, but the Germans are different. They may be dangerous.”
Roosevelt also appointed two notorious segregationists to the United States Supreme Court. Roosevelt appointed South Carolina segregationist Democrat Jimmy Byrnes to the court. Roosevelt later made Byrnes a top advisor, where the segregationist earned the nickname “assistant president.” Byrnes was Roosevelt’s second choice behind Harry Truman for the VP nod in his 1944 reelection bid. Roosevelt also appointed segregationist Democrat Senator Hugo Black of Alabama to the court. Black was a former member of the Ku Klux Klan with a notorious record of racism himself.
Senator Ernest Hollings, D-SC: Hollings is liberal Democrat Senator from South Carolina who is also notorious for his use of racial slurs. He rose out of the Democrat Party's segregationist wing in the 1960's as governor of South Carolina. While in office as governor, Hollings personally led the opposition to lunch counter integration in his state. The New York Times reported on March 17, 1960 that then-governor Hollings "warned today that South Carolina would not permit 'explosive' manifestations in connection with ***** demands for lunch-counter services." According to the article, Hollings gave a speech in which he "challenged President Eisenhower's contention that minorities had the right to engage in certain types of demonstrations" against segregation. In the speech Hollings described the Republican president as "confused" and asserted that Eisenhower had done "great damage to peace and good order" by supporting the rights of minorities to protest segregation at the lunch counters.
Governor Hollings' support for segregation continued throughout his term and included his attendance at a July 23, 1961 meeting of segregationist Democrats to organize their opposition to the civil rights movement. Hollings was one of four governors in attendence, all of them Democrats. The others included rabid segregationists Orval Faubus of Arkansas and Ross Barnett of Mississippi. The New York Times reported on the meeting, noting that among the strategies discussed were using the segregationist White Citizens Council organization to mobilize political opposition to desegregation.
In more recent years Hollings, a senior Democrat senator, has made disparaging racial remarks and slurs against minorities. Senator Hollings, who was a contender for his party's presidential nomination in 1984, blamed his defeat in the primaries by using a racial slur against Hispanics. After losing the Iowa Straw Poll, Hollings stated "You had wetbacks from California that came in here for Cranston," referring to one of his opponents, Alan Cranston. A few years later Hollings reportedly used the slur "darkies" to derogatorily refer to blacks. He also once disparagingly referred to the Rainbow PUSH Coalition as the "Blackbow Coalition," and called former Senator Howard Metzenbaum, who is Jewish, "the Senator from B'nai B'rith." Hollings gained international criticism for his remarks about the African Delegation to the 1993 Geneva GATT conference, where he crudely remarked "you'd find these potentates from down in Africa, you know, rather than eating each other, they'd just come up and get a good square meal in Geneva."
Jesse Jackson: Jackson was the featured prime time speaker at the 2000 Democrat Convention. Jackson has a history of using anti-Semitic slurs and derogatorily calling New York City “Hymietown.” Jackson, a prominent self proclaimed "civil rights leader," is himself guilty of the same bigotry he dishonestly purports to oppose.
Al Sharpton: a perrenial Democrat candidate has a notorious racist past. Sharpton was a central figure who fanned the 1991 Crown Heights race riot, where a mob shouting anti-semetic slurs murdered an innocent Jewish man. Sharpton also incited a 1995 protest of a Jewish owned store in Harlem where protesters used several anti-semetic slurs. During the protests, a Sharpton lieutenant called the store's owner a "bloodsucker" and declared an intent to "loot the Jews." A member of the protest mob later set fire to the store, resulting in the death of seven (source).
Representative Dick Gephardt, D-MO: Gephardt, the former Democrat Minority Leader in the U.S. House of Representatives, gave several speeches to a St. Louis area hate group during his early years as a representative. According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Gephardt spoke before the Metro South Citizens Council, a now defunct white supremacist organization, during his early years as a congressman. Newsmax.com further reported that Gephardt had openly asked the group for an endorsement of his candidacy during one of his many visits with the organization. Gephardt has long avoided questions about his past affiliation with this group.
all of these DEMOCRATS are just a FRACTION of the ACTUAL racists alive and well (mostly lol!) in the Democrat Party...

Not only is that not racist at all, it is a legitimate concern here.
There are very real crimes being alleged to have happened here if what Clyburn is saying is true, one of which is: Who actually paid the filing fee---with a blank check? That check should never have been accepted, as it had no signature on it.
In addition, by paying the filing fee, that would require that campaign finance reports be filed with the Federal Election Commission; none were. The filing fee in SC is $10,440; the FEC threshold for reporting is when one spends $5,000 or more in campaign costs. The filing fee is a campaign cost. The only way Greene doesn't cross the threshold is if he didn't actually pay the fee. The question then becomes: Who did, and is Greene involved in this?
I would be very surprised if one or more people do not go to prison over this. There is election fraud and bank fraud at least that I see coming out of this.
The race issue is irrelevant and a red herring; that Alvin Greene is black is purely coincidental. The message Jim Clyburn is making is that there is fraud...and based on how it smells to me, there is definitely more than one person involved in this scheme.
For an action to be racist, there has to be no reason at all to not want the person. But based on the circumstances, there are valid reasons and concerns, as enumerated above. Valid reason or reasons = never racism.
The case has been referred to the federal prosecutor for further action. After all, if Greene did pay the filing fee by himself, he would be broke.

1. The only person in Congress who was in the KKK is a democrat Sen from WV.
2. The Civil Rights Act was driven through by Republicans, See vote totals below:
The Senate version:
* Democratic Party: 46-21 (69%-31%)
* Republican Party: 27-6 (82%-18%)*
The Senate version, voted on by the House:
* Democratic Party: 153-91 (63%-37%)
* Republican Party: 136-35 (80%-20%)*
So you can decide for yourself, which party is more inclined to racism.
- How do you think about the answers? You can sign in to vote the answer.

Of course the dems are the racists. Look at ole Robert Byrd, the grand po bah of the KKK.
In addition look at what they have done to the blacks. For 50 years they tell them vote for us and we will break the cycle of poverty your in. And where are they today. The same place they were 50 years ago.
No matter what happens they use the race card or the why do you hate crap. Notice it no longer works.
If a dem say that to me I ask tell me HOW I am?

I think the Democrats bringing up his apparent legal problems is legitimate. Though if you consider that racist, why is not the even more strident Republican reaction racist? Sorry, you question proves only the hypocrisy of the Republicans.
- Anonymous1 decade ago
That statement is nothing but nonsense logic of guilt by association and straw man arguments bathed in contempt and demagoguery.
You show no evidence to your claim of racism except hate and anger of those you do not agree with. In fact, you sound pretty racist for making such a claim with no evidence but hate.

When it is shown this is yet another GOP attempt to cheat its way into office, the folks who shout "Democrats are racist!" will be strangely silent.
