Leef: The party of hate
The recent statement by Illinois Democratic Representative Stephanie Kifowit (Is a Kifowit one one thousandth of a half wit?) calling for the death of GOP Representative Peter Breen’s family has been described by some as “shocking” or “appalling.”
Specifically, Rep. Kifowit made the following statement on the House floor:
“I would like to make him (Peter Breen) a broth of Legionella and pump it into the water system of his loved ones so they can be infected … sit and suffer … and ultimately die.”
In an act which would make any Russian oligarch blush, the Illinois House voted 110-0 to expunge Kifowit’s statement from the record.
To me, while appalling, this comes as no shock to anyone familiar with the beliefs and actions of the Party of Hate – The Democratic Party.
It takes very little research to substantiate my claim; a claim which causes Democrats (now consisting mainly of leftists and their legion of Fredo Corleones) to huff and puff and virtue-signal themselves into a frenzy.
Let’s only go back about 100 years (which happens to be about how long Democrats have run(down) Chicago.
The Great Migration to the north of Southern Blacks fleeing the lynchings and rampant racism of the Southern Democrats began in about 1905.
Seeking safety, jobs, education and access to healthcare of which they were denied by Dixiecrats of the south, Blacks moved to larger northern cities such as Chicago.
At first, they served a purpose to the ruling Democrats in Chicago, filling vacant jobs in factories.
Little did these hard-working African-Americans realize that they would be doomed to poverty and woeful education, housing and healthcare by the actions of Richard J. Daley and his friend, Michael Madigan, Sr.
Mayor Daley and his democratic henchmen created low-income housing, i.e. ghettoes, so that he could essentially quarantine blacks into what he felt were isolated and controllable communities, safely separated from whites.
And let us not forget the Democrats undying support of unions. These unions served to prevent blacks from taking away their prized patronage jobs, leaving mainly low paying unskilled labor jobs.
Daley, Madigan and their cohorts also limited blacks to subpar schools in their neighborhoods.
The results of this tragic legacy are plainly evident today.
Now, gentle reader, let us travel back to visit the liberal icon, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
Anyone remember reading about “The Voyage of The Damned”? I know those Never-Trumpers have a very poor memory, so I will quickly summarize:
In 1939, the Nazi’s sent a ship carrying German-Jewish refugees to Havana, Cuba, knowing full well that no country would receive them, thus sentencing them to death in concentration camps upon their return.
FDR did not disappoint, and these doomed souls were sent away to their ultimate horrifying death in the Holocaust.
This, of course, was a small number compared to the over 1 million Jews requesting visas which the FDR administration denied, thus assuring their Nazi death sentence.
I can’t leave FDR, without mentioning another great stain he and his fellow Democrats inflicted on American History – The Japanese Internment Camps.
Perhaps today’s social warriors should remember this segment of history before they breathlessly scream outrage at President Trump for simply upholding the law of the land; laws created and maintained by Congress.
I now take you to 1964 and the Civil Rights Act. The measure passed by the House in a margin of 333-85.
78% of Democrats backed the bill (221 yeas to 61 nays) and
82% of Republicans supported the bill (112 yeas to 24 nays).
The Bill was then passed in the Senate despite the 84-day filibuster led by a group of Southern Democrats.
Two of these senators, dedicated to denying African-American equal rights, were Democratic Senators Albert Gore, Sr. (name sound familiar?) and Robert Byrd.
A word on Senator Byrd.
In the early 1940’s, Robert Byrd was unanimously voted in as the Exalted Cyclops in the local Klu Klux Klan unit he created.
In 1944, Byrd wrote to Mississippi Senator Thomas G. Bilbo:
“I shall never fight in the armed forces with a negro by my side.. rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.”
After eventually being elected to the U.S. Senate and becoming the longest serving Senator in history, Democratic Senator/Former Klansman Robert Byrd was eulogized at his funeral by the woman that millions of Americans felt was recently robbed of her self-proclaimed destiny to become the first female President of the United States, Madame Secretary Hillary Clinton.
I include some of my favorite portions of Secretary Clinton’s moving eulogy of one of our country’s highest elected racists:
“Today our country has lost a true American original, my friend and mentor Robert Byrd.”
“Senator Byrd was a man of surpassing eloquence and nobility.”
“As Secretary of State, I continued to rely on his advice and counsel.”
Not to be outdone, Madame Clinton’s husband sentimentally eulogized:
“Others have written that Senator Byrd once had a fleeting association with the Ku Klux Klan and what does it mean…..I’ll tell you what it means. He was a country boy from West Virginia who was trying to get elected.”
Speaking of country boys, let us return to 1964 and the President who signed the Civil Rights Act, Lyndon B. Johnson.
There is a famous quote, often disputed by the mainstream media, attributed to the undisputed racist LBJ.
After signing the Bill, The President allegedly said to 2 governors on Air Force One:
“I’ll have those n*****s voting Democratic for the next 200 years.”
However, a documented quote which not only depicts LBJ for what he was but also summarizes Democratic dogma is the following:
“These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back 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, their allies will line up against us and there’ll be no way of stopping them, we’ll lose the filibuster and there will be no way of putting the brake on all sorts of wild legislation. It’ll be Reconstruction all over again.”
Clearly, LBJ and both past and many present Democrats are in fact fine representatives of the Jim Crowe Laws which their party was responsible for creating.
I would be remiss if I didn’t include in the Hall of Shame a shining example of racism and Democratic hypocrisy, Nation of Islam Leader Louis Farrakhan.
There simply is not space nor time to include a fraction of the anti-Semitic rants from the man called friend by current Democratic U.S. Congressman Danny Davis and his Congressional Black Caucus or Woman’s March Organizer Linda Sansour .
Minister Farrakhan, as recently as October 2018, denied claims of being anti- Semitic with his statement, “I am not anti-Semitic. I am anti-termite”.
While Twitter did not find this sufficiently offensive to ban him from its site, I believe I can confidently debate this point.
Here is an excerpt from Minister Farrakhan’s speech this past February in Chicago:
“White folks are going down. And Satan is going down. And Farrakhan, by God’s grace, has pulled the cover off of that satanic Jew and I’m here to say your time is up ,and your world is through.”
Is this more or less subtle than The Reverend Jesse Jackson referring to New York as “Hymie town”?
So, with this illustrious history of Democratic hate-mongering, what is so “shocking” about a Legionella Cocktail?
Not only does Representative Kifowit not make the Democrat’s Hall of Shame, she doesn’t even make their All-Star team.
