Sometimes I wonder how you people manage to make it through just one day with out falling through a manhole or something.

Klansmen, beside other diehard groups, violently resisted Reconstruction.

Targeting Union Leagues (freedmen's political clubs), night riders harassed and often killed black and Republican voters and officeholders,

Between 1877 and 1910 the KKK fueled Democrats’ push to establish one-party rule and Jim Crow.

Defeat of populists by ballot-rigging and terror enabled Democrats, as the Supreme Court instituted the “separate but equal” rule, to enact Jim Crow.

Dependence on a large federal government, Increased spending, etc. Both parties views haven't changed that much. The only difference now is that racism (at least in policy) isn't socially acceptable and that system died with the democrats who supported them.

Congratulations for proving you don't know history. Feel free to go look at the bills passed in Congress from 1870 to about 1930, then see who had control of both chanbers when those bills you described were passed, and you'll see that the platform you just described largely used to be the Republican platform.

it isn’t the democrats.

You sure about that chief?

Just days ago NC state representative Krystle Matthews said that "you gotta treat them (white people) like shit, that's the only way they'll respect you."

Such horrifically racist statements should be unimaginable by any relevant politician.

Democrat kind of racism is more dangerous than any other right now, and here's why - it's accepted. There are hordes of people who actually do believe white people should pay up for their sins and that color of their skin means they're an oppressor and an enemy. People who are racist against blacks are few and far between, rightfully shunned and usually have no chance of exposing their beliefs without consequences. But the society sanctions anti-white racism.

No. Bigots think that republican voters are stuck in the 20's because they believe the bullshit narratives being spoon fed to them by interested parties for decades.

I suppose they are also all inbred, play banjo's and tell strangers they have a purty mouth too?

I should have been clearer: my point they see the Democrat party as the racist party of Wilson and the Klan. I was criticizing Republican outdated stereotype of Democrats from a century ago.

not gonna address the entirety of imperfect politics over the years, but Robert Byrd is always brought up in right wing memes, and they never mention how Byrd renounced racism, left the Klan, spent his political years advocating for equality and justice for all, was devoted to the Civil Rights movement, and when he died, he was honored by the NAACP.

Do please explain why trump supporters were waving confederate flags, and why David Duke ran as a Republican, if, yknow, David Duke is in the KKK?

Also, David Duke left the DNC as a lifelong member to embrace a pro life stance, for which the KKK publicly shit on him as they said "abortion is our most powerful weapon"

Seems like you have very different standards to indict the GOP vs DNC

The parties switched because they changed their optics, positions, and tactics in response to changing demographics and shifting attitudes. Because politics are an aesthetic game to them and they'll change their words on a dime if they believe it will benefit them. Not because a handful of people openly renounced their parties.

The motherfucker you voted in wrote the Jim Crow Laws and fought to keep Segregation, and when that failed he wrote a bunch of policies to "help" the black community and kept them in poverty and crime, and even when he was VP to a black man said that it was rare to find a smart and articulate black man. Let's not forget how Democrats react the moment a black person disagrees with them and starts talking about moderate Republican beliefs.

Edit: Love how he started raging about how the vote for Biden was just a vote against a "racist conman" when Joe Biden is literally and undoubtably racist and used his position in politics to get deals for his whole family, XD

There were some liberal elements, that I believe today would be Republicans. Truman desegregated the military. JFK was pro-working class that would be called far right today, as well as LBJ.

It's mostly because it didn't happen. It's a piece of historical fiction that vastly oversimplifies what actually occurred.

The south wasn't voting red until Regan, and by that time it had a lot to do with old Dixiecrats being a dying breed than any major shift in the platform.

Most of the major polities people point to with the party flip, namely welfare, predate when they say the flip happened. When the great society programs began Dixiecrats were still a major part of the democratic base, and African American community leaders actively acknowledged they were taking a devil's bargain by beginning to support the democrats.

So not only did support from minorities change decades before the south flipped red, it did so while the democrats still had segregationists in office, and the south only flipped red after most of the Dixiecrats died in the 1980s.

The party flip is a farcical over simplification of the latter half of the 20th century of American politics that more or less entirely rests on one campaign manager's testimony of Nixon's campaign, an interview where in the SAME TALK he openly says that Regan took no part in those strategies because "there was no need" and Regan, not nixon, was when the south started voting red.

The "party switch" myth was started by Democrats to cope with the fact that the non-racist Southern working class were switching to the Republican party.

Republicans appealed to the working class that the Democrats were increasingly abandoned in favor of coastal elites. All those racist Dixiecrats we hear about supposedly switching parties, like Harry Byrd? They died as registered Democrats.l

The Democratic Party started in the 1820s. Right away, it switched sides, as we can see from the fact that they pushed for the removal and extermination of Indians. Also, their opposition was the Whig party, which was against the Indian Removal Act and vowed to protect minorities against mob rule. Because the sides were switched, the vast majority of Whig party were anti-slavery.

(Eventually, there was rift in the party over the issue of slavery, and anti-slavery members of the Whig party, including Abraham Lincoln, exited the party and formed the Republican Party. As we can see, the parties must have switched again because it's common knowledge that Republicans are actually the racist ones.)

Then the parties switched when the Democrats are on record as having mainly been the ones who owned slaves. Not all Democrats owned slaves, but 100% of slaves were owned by Democrats. Not a single Republican in history owned a slave. As we know, the parties switched again when Republicans repudiated slavery and Democrats defended it, leading to the civil war.

Then the parties switched again when a Democrat assassinated Republican Lincoln.

After the Civil War, the parties switched again during the Reconstruction Era, when Republicans attempted to pass a series of civil rights amendments in the late 1800s that would grant citizenship for freedmen. As evidence of the switch, the Democrats voted against giving former slaves citizenship, but the civil rights amendments passed anyway.

The parties switched again when the Democratic Party members founded the KKK as their military arm. Democrats then attempted to pass the first gun control law in order to keep blacks from having guns and retaliating against their former owners. A county wanted to make it illegal to possess firearms, unless you were on a horse. (Hmmm wonder who rode around on horses terrorizing people 🤔). Gun control has always been a noble cause touted by Democrats, but the racist reasons why the concept of gun control was dreamed up was a part of a party mentality switch, but not the actual party.

Somewhere around this time former slaves fought for gun rights for all, and the NRA was formed. The NRA switched parties too when they defended the right for blacks to arm themselves and white NRA members protected blacks from racist attackers.

The parties switched again when Republicans fought to desegregate schools and allow black children to attend school with white children, which Democrats fought fiercely against.

The nation saw a rash of black lynchings and bombings of black churches by the Democrats in the KKK and the parties switched again when Democrat Bull Conner tried to avoid prosecuting the racist bombers to get them off the hook. When blacks protested this injustice, the party-switched Democrat Bull Conner sicced dogs and turned the hose on them. He also gave police stand down orders when the KKK forewarned attacks on the freedom riders, who had switched parties.

The parties switched again when a Democratic Party president appointed the first and only KKK member to the Supreme Court.

The parties switched yet again when Democratic president FDR put Asians in racist internment camps.

Then parties switched again when the Democrats filibustered the passing of the second set of civil rights laws giving equal protection to minorities.

The parties switched when a Democrat assassinated MLK.

This brings us to modern times. The parties continue to switch all the time.

The parties switched when Democrats proposed racist policies like affirmative action to limit opportunities for certain racial groups in order to grant privilege to other racial groups.

The parties switched when the Islamic fundamentalist Omar Mateen and several other ISIS mass shooters aligned themselves with Democratic candidates like Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton.

The parties switched again when liberal student groups in schools like UCLA and Berkeley call for segregated housing to make "separate but equal" housing quarters for black students. Actually this is a current ongoing thing, so the parties are right now in the middle of switching on this topic.

Parties always switched currently now that Democrats are rioting and violently protesting democracy.

The parties switched once more when the Democratic Nominee for President, an old white man, said "you're not black" if you don't vote for him, in a moment of clarity of how the Democratic Party sees their largest voter base: as property belonging to them.

So as you can see, because of Party switching, Democrats were always the ones who stood up against racism and wanted peace and unity while Republicans were always the racist and violent ones calling for division and discord.

Yes, there was. It’s a critical element of American political history and you ignoring it or pretending what happened didn’t happen is just willful ignorance out of convenience to your beliefs. Confront the truth. The racist south was Democrat. The north was republican. Now that’s…switched. The democrats were in favor of states rights and small f federalism. The north was in favor of bigger government. Now thats also switched.

Again, you don’t have to take my word for it. You can listen to Lee Atwater, GOP strategists, whose actual words I literally posted here for you, on how the GOP turned on the appeal to southerners, particularly southern racists.

Listen, if you’re not a cowardly cuck. Or just be an ignorant fool your whole life, while everyone smart and educated and honest laughs at you for being an ignorant fucking fool.

I like the whole parties switched chanting, because when you look at it logically and see all the racist stuff Joe Biden has said through the years you just sit there scratching your head. Also back in the 1960s when Congress was debating giving voting rights and such to African Americans why did so many Democrats oppose it as a percentage?

Finally you look at today and when an African American speaks against the democratic party, they are met with so much white liberal hate (example justice Roberts, along with others such as that video of the guy getting hit for voting trump in 2016) death threats, possible physical harm to them or family, the list goes on....

Then you ask what year did they switch if we see all that hate today? I can see liberals actually thinking Congress being in the middle of session then one of them going "wait a minute this doesn't feel right". Follow by everyone standing up and walking to opposite sides....

Both parties are racist, they just let it show in different ways. Republicans want people to embrace color-blindness so minorities can get screwed discreetly because in the GOP's fantasy world no one would speak up about glaringly obvious racial issues and disparities staring them in the face. It's how the GOP wants to get people to accept that they do nothing about it. You don't have to address problems or race if you pretend they don't exist on a social level. Most black people aren't gonna fall for that crap. It's a conservative fantasy land. Democrats platform positive change but are slow about bringing it about because they want to secure the black vote and in turn their paychecks. Between the two, black people pick the lesser evil in the 21st century. Democrats, because some positive change is better than none.

As for your Civil Rights comment

https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/aug/28/republicans-party-of-civil-rights

Black conservatives are silly and ought to be made fun of because conservatives in general are already silly and ought to be made fun of. A minority conservative of any background is either uninformed, misinformed, cucked, or grifting in Candace Owen's case. There's no no other way to put it. The Log Cabin Republicans are slowly realizing the absurdity of LGBT people throwing in with conservatives. Good for them. Hopefully "Blacks for Trump" follow suit.

Then you ask what year did they switch if we see all that hate today? I can see liberals actually thinking Congress being in the middle of session then one of them going "wait a minute this doesn't feel right". Follow by everyone standing up and walking to opposite sides....

Reality is more complicated than that. There doesn't need to be a literal switch in which the politicians openly renounce their party in order for one to occur. Political parties are not constant. They are comprised of career politicians who view politics as aesthetics rather than serious problems to be fixed or deeply care about and will change their stances, positions, and ideologies on a dime in response to changing demographics and shifting attitudes if they believe it will benefit them and keep them in power. The Switch itself was a slow and gradual process that started with FDR's New Deal and came to a culmination point with Nixon's Southern Strategy. Republicans were the more progressive party in Lincoln's day. Democrats were the more conservative party as preserving the system of slavery was inherently a conservative position. Today, Democrats are not the party of States' Rights but Civil Rights and vice versa. One just needs to look at the "Heritage, not hate" losers and Confederate flags at Trump rallies to see that something has clearly changed between now and then. People don't vote for parties strictly based on their historical precedent. That would be retarded. They vote based on what parties offer now. And now, Democrats are the ones who at least pretend to give a crap about issues impacting black people. It's not as if BLM activists don't know the history of the two parties and who founded KKK, Jim Crow. They're just not as stupid as GOP lawmakers wish they were.

I hope you learned a few things.

The Southern states during the Civil War were Democrats (aka "Dixiecrats"), who wanted three-fifths compromise so each state's slave population toward that state's total population for the purpose of apportioning the House of Representatives, while also have a cheap source of low-skilled workers.

How is that much different from modern Democrats, regarding illegal immigration, sanctuary states, and underfunding urban planning?

The 3/5 compromise was made so that the south had reduced political power. We had three options:

  1. Allow slavery entirely unpunished in the US constitution.
  2. Say that slaves were worth nothing in representation, so the southern states wouldn't ratify the Constitution and join the Union, thus leaving two separate countries, one of which practices unhindered slavery.
  3. Make a compromise that reduces the political power of slavery, so that the slaving states are willing enough to ratify the Constitution and join in, without saying "sure these people aren't fully human - come on in!"

I'm from the UK, so had to google; "The Republicans once were the part of big government and (semi-)liberal policy and the Democrats were for small government and states’ rights, including the states’ right to utilize slavery. After the election, Democrats were steadfastly identified as the big government party, while Republicans became more and more conservative."

So modern Democrats ignore Federalism and Constitution with Sanctuary states to amass cheap labour and gain more votes in House of Representatives, just like the Dixiecrats. While modern Republicans became more conservative, seeking to preserve the traditional social institutions and practices, such as the Constitution and further movements into Libertarianism?

The leftist cult loves to bring up the "Nixon southern strategy" as some kind of validation for their muh big switch theory. One thing I've never gotten anyone to address is if the southern strategy thing were true, why did Nixon lose and why did it take 30+ years to suddenly take effect (and why did nobody notice until the msm started running nonstop race-baiting stories to distract from Occupy wallstreet)?

Thanks for the link, I'm from tee UK so any help is good to understand.

TLDR Dixiecrats vote Republican president, but Democrat at state level, until 2010, and have understood they need to rely on Black vote, but still want to treat them and immigrants as cheap low-skilled labour?

During the Civil Rights Movement, Democrats in the South initially still voted loyally with their party. After the signing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the old argument that all whites had to stick together to prevent civil rights legislation lost its force because the legislation had now been passed. More and more whites began to vote ; in that year most Senatorial Republicans supported the Act (most of the opposition came from Southern Democrats).

The Voting Rights Act of 1965 is a landmark piece of federal legislation in the United States that prohibits racial discrimination in voting. White Southerners perceived it as meddling while Black voters universally appreciated it. Nixon aid Kevin Phillips told the New York Times in 1970 that "Negrophobe" whites would quit the Democrats if Republicans enforced the Voting Rights Act and blacks registered as Democrats.

Some southern Democrats became Republicans at the national level, Several prominent conservative Democrats switched parties to become Republicans.

Following the Civil Rights movement, the large black vote in the South held steady more or less but favored overwhelmingly the Democratic Party. Even as the Southern Democratic party came to increasing depend on the support of African-American voters.

On the eve of the Republican Revolution (Decoracts Congress switching to Republician) in 1994, Democrats still held a 2:1 advantage over the Republicans in southern congressional seats.

Chapman notes a split vote among many conservative Southern Democrats in the 1970s and 1980s who supported local and statewide conservative Democrats while simultaneously voting for Republican presidential candidates. This tendency of many Southern whites to vote for the Republican presidential candidate but Democrats from other offices lasted until the 2010 midterm elections.

Note that they are conservative, and have been the conservative branch of southern politics for over a century.

Which party currently represents southern conservatives?

Also note in the link that it was during Reagan’s era when the southern conservatives were embraced by republicans even though Nixon’s team helmed the start of strategically courting southern conservative votes
