If Duke knew what the original Republican party – pre-Civil Rights Act – stood for he never would have became a republican in the first place. The Republican party is not the party of stifling one-sided idiots it contains now. Persons like William Seward and Abraham Lincoln clearly defined the Republican party as the party of progress.
And the irony is many of today’s Republicans don’t even know who William Seward is, other than for founding Alaska. Seward, a strong abolitionist, not only wrote the Emancipation proclamation (not Lincoln who simply added amendments), but was a best friend and supporter of Harriet Tubman. The two are also buried in the same cemetery. Seward’s vision for this country, along with Lincoln’s, would have changed the course of almost 200 years damage caused by British-ruled slavery. But all that was undone by scoundrel democrats like John Wilkes Booth and Jefferson Davis and the legacy of their hatred was maintained by folks like Eugene “Bull” Connor, Gov. George Wallace, Ross Barnett Sr., Byron De La Beckwith, Roy Bryant, Sam Bowers and others like them!
Democrats, who were mostly proud klansmen and separatists, created the legacy of hatred that branded folks like Gov. George Wallace, Ross Barnett Sr., Trent Lott, Jesse Helms and Strom Thurmond. Once the Democratic party lost their long-standing control via hatred and separatism with the passage of the Civil Rights Act, Democrats like Lott and Thurmond jumped ship and forever changed the tone of the Republican party.
More blacks were Republicans and supported the Republican party during slavery, as there was more inclusion for all within the Republican party. Democrats to this day, I still don’t trust unless I know them personally and confidently, and see their actual voting record.
From David Duke:
“GOP traitors appoint Obama Junior [Michael Steele] as Chairman of the Republican Party”
I am glad these traitorous leaders of the Republican Party appointed this Black racist, affirmative action advocate to the head of the Republican party because this will lead to a huge revolt among the Republican base. As a former Republican official, I can tell you that millions of rank-and-file Republicans are mad as hell and aren’t going to take it anymore! We will either take the Republican Party back over the next four years or we will say, “To Hell With the Republican Party!” And we will take 90 percent of Republicans with us into a New Party that will take its current place!”
Has David Duke considered relocating to an all white nordic country where his chances of seeing non-white faces will be rare, and Duke can have some type of control?
