The Jim Crowe Agenda (Historic Perspective)

The Jim Crowe Agenda (Historic Perspective)

by J C Anger

As we have entered a new era of the American socioeconomic landscape a new dynamic is forming.  That new dynamic is the emergence of strong conservative black Republicans such as Allen West, Tim Scott, and Herman Cain.  They are masterful in their speech and show their character with such poise and honor that it’s hard not to be become involved with that they are saying.  Their understanding of issues and solutions is unparalleled to anyone in the political sector.  Yet their very existence garners an attack from the people who state to be the champions of historical Civil Rights by calling these good men nothing more than Jim Crowes.  The attack of the Liberal left is so intense that at times you would expect one of their own to reel in the hate rhetoric.  But they don’t.  It is for that very fact that I decided to look into Jim Crowe and to truly see if the left wingers really have a leg to stand on.

Here are some gathered facts from my research with a special thanks to Wall Builders and Wikipedia:

Jim Crowe Timeline – 
Booklet “Separate Schools for Whites and Colored with Equal Advantages; Mixed Schools Never!” was distributed 1872 by Congressman James Harper, Democrat, NC
Passage of Civil Rights Act of 1875 – Championed by Senator Charles Sumner, Republican, MA and Congressman Benjamin Franklin Butler, Republican, MA

Jim Crowe Laws enacted by the Redeemers 1877, Southern Democrat group of Governors which enacted state level segregation which nullified the 1875 act

1954 – 100 Democrats in Congress passed the “Southern Manifesto”, denouncing the Supreme Court decision of Brown v. the Board of Education stating desegregation was, “certain to destroy the system of public education” and called “explosive and dangerous conditions created by this decision”

1954 – Georgia Governor, Democrat Herman Talmadge issued a promise that Georgia schools “will never be mixed schools while I am Governor”

1954 – Mississippi Governor, Democrat James Coleman on “Meet the Press” stated, “I would say that a baby born in Mississippi today will never live long enough to see an integrated school”

1956 – Texas Governor, Democrat Allan Shivers deployed the Texas Rangers to keep blacks from entering public schools in Mansfield

1957 – Arkansas Governor, Democrat Orval Faubus called out the Arkansas National Guard to keep black students from entering Central High School in Little Rock, AK.  Republican President Dwight D. Eisenhower intervened by federalizing the Guard and replacing them with 1,200 troops from the 101st Airborne Division to allow black student into school

Passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 – Championed by Senator Everett Dirksen , Republican, Illinois.  Vote was passed in the Senate with 69% of Democrat support with 82% of Republican support and in the House of Representatives with 63% of Democrat support and 80% of Republican support

From this timeline we can see that there is a historic condition of racism that is imbedded in the Democratic Party.  When they try and turn the issue of racism against the Republicans, they fail to mention the history of racism that has been so embraced by their own party that created and fought to keep Jim Crowe in place.  It was only when they saw how successful class warfare worked in creating a voter block after the great depression that it clicked in their mind that they could do the same thing with the races.  Therefore they attempted to use this to their advantage by distorting history as we know it.

There is an old adage that if you say something often enough and loud enough that eventually the people are going to believe it.

This is the only way that you can truly distort the historical significance of reality and truth.  The Democrats have demonized the fringe of the Republicans in a way that they try and paint the entire of the Republican Party as a racist element that has always been trying to attack people of color.  They have become so successful in this tactic that they have entire generations growing up voting Democrat because they don’t realize the truth of history and the reality of the way they are being used.


This is why heroes like Allen West, Tim Scott, and Herman Cain are so attacked.  The fear that these Patriots will come forward and bring back the truth that is surrounded in history absolutely scares the Liberals to death.  They fear that if these people are successful, then they will loose a large portion of the voting block that they believe they are controlling with their rhetoric.  They feel they are the puppet masters and that a person like Herman Cain being elected President of the United States of America would cut the strings and set the puppets free.  The balance of a Progressive’s world lies in the ability to control people and once the people think for themselves they loose all their power.

This is why it is so vital to educate people about the heritage for which they come from.  It is vital that we do not waver from our support of Patriots such as Tim Scott, who understands the Conservative values of his heritage.  We must stand for heroes like Allen West who sacrificed his time to defend our nation in a time of war before he took his place as the people’s choice in the House of Representatives.  It is vital that we elect Herman Cain as our next President of the United States of America so that we can see an end to the political use of racism by those who have been historically racist.

I will end with the words of one of the greatest Civil Right’s spokesmen and registered Republicans 

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
