LBJ: “I’ll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.”
Written by Allen West on March 20, 2014
On March 20, 1854 the Republican Party was established in Ripon, Wisconsin. Referred to as the GOP or Grand Old Party, it established for one reason: to break the chains of slavery and ensure the unalienable rights endowed by the Creator of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness would be for all Americans.
The Republican Party was created to achieve individual freedom. Then, as now, the antagonist to the Republican party has been the Democrats, the party of collective subjugation and individual enslavement — then physical, now economic.
The first black members of the US House and Senate were Republicans. The first civil rights legislation came from Republicans. Democrats gave us the KKK, Jim Crow, lynchings, poll taxes, literacy tests, and failed policies like the “Great Society.”
Republican President Eisenhower ordered troops to enforce school desegregation. Republican Senator Everett Dirksen enabled the 1964 civil rights legislation to pass, in opposition to Democrat Senators Robert Byrd (KKK Grand Wizard) and Al Gore, Sr.
As a matter of fact, it was Democrat President Lyndon Baines Johnson who stated, “I’ll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years” as he confided with two like-minded governors on Air Force One regarding his underlying intentions for the “Great Society” programs.
Yep, and who are the real racists? So far, thanks to a Republican Party that is ignorant of its own history and gave up on the black community, Democrats have 50 of those 200 years under their belt.
The problem with today’s Republican Party is that it has forgotten its own history and raison d’ etre: individual liberty. The Party must come to realize that GOP also stands for “Growth, Opportunity, Prosperity” and articulate how it stands, as its history and founding clearly demonstrate, for the individual pursuit of happiness as opposed to the progressive socialist (Democrat) lie of a collective guarantee of happiness.
So, happy 160th birthday to my Party, the Republican Party. I am a strong Conservative and I hope Republicans recommit to those fundamental principles which established this Party — the historical antithesis of the Democrats. Do I agree with every Republican on everything? Not always, but I doggone ain’t about to join up with the other liberal socialist rascals. And I do have a word of caution to my fellow Republicans, (wo)man up, or go the way of the Whigs.

In 1875 Repubs passed the same Civil Rights that was passed in 1964 under LBJ. The dems repealed that law in 1894 using the repeals act of 1894 and the Supreme Court. (The Dems now controlled congress and the white house) They did not repeal any of their Jim Crow laws they legislated in the south (starting in Tennesee)in 1875 under states rights. The 1957 Civil Rights Bill was an attempt by Pres. Eisenhower to revive the 1875 Civil Rights Act but was blocked by the Senate Maj. Leader.(LBJ) Except for some minor legislation. Eisenhower again tried to strengthen what little he got in 1957 in the 1960 civil rights act, again got little. The bill passed in 1964 under LBJ was requested in the summer of 1963 by JFK before he died..the bill’s main sponsor and supporter of this bill was Republican Senator Everett Dirksen of Illinois. This bill was almost identical to both 1957 Civil Rights Bill and the 1875 Civil Rights Bill that the democrats had overturned by the supreme Court. My info came from the Library of Congress and from Rev. Wayne Perryman. I would also recommend reading “Unveiling the Whole Truth” by Rev. Wayne Perryman. It will open your eyes.
I have been using this quote by LBJ for quite some time now and inevitably some hate spewing Liberal will enact their “proof” of it being false by quoting Snopes or Fact Check. Well the fact is, they don’t check the facts on these 2 sites. Both are ultra Liberal leaning sites that have been caught in numerous lies (too many to list but I will list one). When Obama Care passed (and I will never call it by it’s legal name due to it needing to have it’s due credit), those that read it came upon a section wherein a tracking device called an RFID chip was to be mandatorily placed into the right hands or foreheads of everyone by March of 2013. People in droves began protesting this calling it the Mark of the Beast. Immediately both Snopes and Fact Check stated that these claims were false claiming that these were not the class II implantable devices that Obama Care called for. They stated that class II devices were heart monitors and such. Well lo and behold the CEO of the company (Applied Digital Solutions) that makes these chips for the government, came out in a public statement saying that they were in fact the very same class II devices being called for in Obama Care. Now we are hearing more and more about them as they try to desensitize people to this and how this is good for our children. So much for Snopes and Fact Check being remotely correct.
Getting back to the LBJ quote. His statement to these governors was that they would keep minorities (and he used the “N” word here) on welfare, keep them stupid and they would vote Democrat for 200 years to come. Those that were closest to LBJ had heard him say this many times. He epitomizes the mindset of the Democratic Party. They did not change their views on minorities nor on slavery. They merely changed their tactics on how to further enslave not only them but everyone in this nation. Their mindset is to remove all freedoms in favor of a ruling class (those that are Democratic leaders) and continue the divide between not only the classes but the races as well. They are not progressives. They are revisionists, slave traders, deceivers, and the moral decay of this society.

Allen, Allen, Allen. “To break the chains of slavery.” Really? The Republican party arose out of the dissolving Whig party. The majority of Whigs were Pro-slavery. The Republican party was formed to STOP slavery from expanding into the western territories, not “to break the chains of slavery.” Let’s get it right and stop telling 1/2 truths. Cheers. & TGIF. @ALLENWEST
“The Republican Party was formed to STOP slavery from expanding into the western territories, not to break the chains of slavery”. IF stopping slavery from spreading to another part of the country was NOT “breaking the chains of slavery”? just what WAS it and WHERE, if not there, would you suggest they have started? Democrats would NEVER have started to STOP it because they didn’t want it to stop. LBJ just figured out a way to start it up again and the blacks went for it welfare line and sinker.
No, YOU are wrong. You need to go back & actually STUDY history. I was a teenager when LBJ took office, & I remember all the things that were done to blacks by DEMOCRATS. And, the KKK members are all DEMOCRATS. When Lincoln declared the Emancipation of the slaves, not ONE Democrat voted for it, & Republicans voted unamiously to pass that law.

MLK stated time and time again he had no party affiliation.
King did, however, weigh in on the Republican party during his lifetime. In Chapter 23 of his autobiography, King writes this about the 1964 Republican National Convention:
The Republican Party geared its appeal and program to racism, reaction, and extremism. All people of goodwill viewed with alarm and concern the frenzied wedding at the Cow Palace of the KKK with the radical right. The “best man” at this ceremony was a senator whose voting record, philosophy, and program were anathema to all the hard-won achievements of the past decade.
Senator Goldwater had neither the concern nor the comprehension necessary to grapple with this problem of poverty in the fashion that the historical moment dictated. On the urgent issue of civil rights, Senator Goldwater represented a philosophy that was morally indefensible and socially suicidal. While not himself a racist, Mr. Goldwater articulated a philosophy which gave aid and comfort to the racist. His candidacy and philosophy would serve as an umbrella under which extremists of all stripes would stand. In the light of these facts and because of my love for America, I had no alternative but to urge every Negro and white person of goodwill to vote against Mr. Goldwater and to withdraw support from any Republican candidate that did not publicly disassociate himself from Senator Goldwater and his philosophy.
King barnstormed the country on behalf on Johnson in 1964, “maintaining only a thin veneer of nonpartisanship,” according to biographer Nick Kotz. King called Johnson’s win a “great victory for the forces of progress and a defeat for the forces of retrogress.”
Here is what King had to say about Ronald Reagan, the hero of modern Republicans:
When a Hollywood performer, lacking distinction even as an actor can become a leading war hawk candidate for the Presidency, only the irrationalities induced by a war psychosis can explain such a melancholy turn of events.
David Garrow, who wrote a Pulitzer Prize winning biography of King, stated “It’s simply incorrect to call Dr. King a Republican.”
