The Democratic Party: From KKK To Saying O.K.

"In the U.S., the Democratic Party, home of the modern left-liberal, was the party of slavery and Jim Crow.

The most racially charged political campaign in recent U.S. history was the Democratic primary contest between Obama and Hillary Clinton. The racism of the left is far more insidious than a simple mistrust or fear of foreigners; it seeks to divide people into groups which can then be exploited and played against each other for political gain.

...Those prepared to use violence in the furtherance of core left-wing aims such as the destruction of capitalism, the abolition of property rights, and the usurpation of democratically elected governments by 'enlightened' revolutionaries number in the millions, if not the tens of millions.

They range from Hitler, Stalin, and Pol Pot to present-day dictators like Chavez and the Castros, terrorist groups such as Bill Ayers’ Weather Underground and the Baader-Meinhof gang, and environmental extremists and anti-capitalist rioters,....

The reasons why violence is so prevalent on the left go to the heart of the differences between left and right. If you take race, religion, and other 'human' factors out of the equation, the distinction is really between authoritarianism and collectivism on the left and freedom and individualism on the right. There’s no doubt which is the more attractive option for most people, all things being equal, which is why the left has to blur the distinctions and muddle the language.

This distinction is summed up in two quotes from great figures in British political history. The first, by Winston Churchill, goes something like this: 'Any man who is under 30, and is not a liberal, has no heart; and any man who is over 30, and is not a conservative, has no brains.' (There are several versions of the quote, and variations have been attributed to other political figures.)

The second, by Margaret Thatcher: 'The facts of life are conservative.'"
