"This is a White Man’s Country – Let the White Men Rule."
SO now with that said, I must tell you that that statement did NOT come from me.
Nor did it come from a Conservative, nor Republican, NOR the Tea Party Patriots.
No sir, No Madam!
That is a quote from 1848.
In that same year the Democratic Party’s presidential campaign ran with that slogan.
And the attitude of the DNC continued to this very day.
Reverend Wayne Perryman, a black researcher and best-selling author has filed a class-action lawsuit against the Democratic National Committee and President Barack Obama, alleging the party has engaged in a systematic policy of racism over the years. The lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court in Seattle.
Perryman heads up a consulting firm that specializes in fact-finding investigations on behalf of inner-city plaintiffs who are unsuccessful in obtaining representation through law firms and community organizations.... Hmmm, unsuccessful in obtaining representation... from community organizations... Or in other words, community organizers who are lawyers.... Do we know someone like that?
Anyways, the 46-page brief lists examples illustrating 210 years of racist statements and actions by the Democratic Party. The suit begins with showing how Democratic President Andrew Johnson “carried out the Democrat agenda by attempting to veto other key pieces of Civil Rights legislation that were designed to give and protect the constitutional rights of African Americans.”
The suit cites the collective work of over 350 legal scholars and includes Congressional records, opinions from the NAACP, racist statements from Democratic elected officials, citations from speeches from by Barack Obama and other information.
Perryman said his purpose in filing the suit is to force the party to acknowledge and apologize for its racist past. “Any organization that has such a racist history and receives 97 percent of the African American vote after doing all they could to deny blacks the right to vote, should willingly apologize without being forced do so through a lawsuit. I guess they feel they have nothing to apologize for.”
Perryman also states that the defendants failed to disclose their racist history by omitting information showing that the DNC, as a party, and as individuals were opposed to abolitionists, supported the Fugitive Slave Act Laws, the Dredd Scott decision, Jim Crow laws and Black Codes in the south.
The brief also says Democrats started and supported several terrorist organizations including the Ku Klux Klan. Various Democrats also argued against the passage of the 1964 Civil rights Act.
Lyndon Johnson said, “These Negroes, they're getting pretty uppity these days and that's a problem for us since they got something now that they never had before; the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we've got to do something about this, we've got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down; not enough to make a difference. For if we don't move at all, then their allies will line up against us and there will be no way of stopping them.... and there’ll be no way of putting a brake on all sorts of wild legislation. It'll be Reconstruction all over again.”
The brief also cites Obama’s August bus tour, noting that the President “intentionally and specifically chose to ignore and exclude cities and towns that had high black unemployment.”
Perryman filed the lawsuit on Sept. 12 and Obama and the DNC were officially served on the 14th. The plaintiffs have 60 days to respond to the suit.
Sean Penn, are you listening?
