Martin Luther King, Jr. fought Democratic Party policy, principle & history.

Pratt on Texas - copyright Pratt on Texas all rights reservedToday is the federal holiday to honor Martin Luther King, Jr. and his leadership to free black and other Americans from the Democratic Party’s systematic denial of equality under the law.

Make no mistake, segregation, Jim Crow, so-called “separate but equal” were all creations of the same political party that had viciously protected slavery.

Democrats are the party from which the disgusting Ku Klux Klan emerged and acted as its militant wing to enforce the Democratic Party’s disgusting racist agenda throughout the country – the unaware should understand that the Klan was active across the nation not just in the southern states.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Martin Luther King, Jr. was a man who had flaws and sins like any other, but he is admired because he peacefully rattled the nation’s conscience about injustice so forcefully that it finally resulted in Democrat voters, and some leaders in non-segregationist states, turning on the disgusting racist nature of their political party. That left Jim Crow Democrats in a state of disarray and opened the door for non-segregationist Democrats to begin a slow takeover of that party in the South.

Do not be a fool and fall for the lie that the Democrat and Republican parties flipped with the virulent racists leaving the Dems for the GOP. The Republican Party did not begin to grow and win over the Southern states until more than a generation after the 1968 murder of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Alabama, as a representative example didn’t become a solid Republican state until the 1990’s and Republicans only began winning a few legislative seats during the Reagan years a decade earlier.

America’s Democratic Party has its roots in slavery and then Jim Crow segregation for a century after the Civil War. That war was prosecuted by Republicans, a party founded in-part to end slavery and a party that was run out of the South after the War Between the States because it was electing black Americans to local and state office.

MLK-day should, in-part, be a time to remember just who occupied those state houses he was leading marches against.
