Major players in the Democratic Party are consistently being exposed for their historic links with organisations and groups that explicitly devalue human life. Robert Byrd, Hilary Clinton’s mentor, was a long-time member of the KKK, and early this year, Virginia Governor, Ralph Northam, was revealed to have dressed up in a KKK costume and worn blackface during his earlier years.
The history of the Democratic Party is flooded with fellowships that are questionable at best, and morally wicked at worst. A historical analysis of this populist party is required to make sense of the recent abortion legislation passed in the state of New York.
What do slavery, segregation laws, eugenics, and abortion have in common?
They were all top priorities for the Democratic Party throughout history.
Democratic Party is founded by Andrew Jackson — a passionate advocate of slavery and key figure behind the ‘Trail of Tears’ — a state-sanctioned slaughter of around 15,000 Native Americans
1866 — Ku Klux Klan is founded by a group of Democratic former confederate soldiers who fought to prevent blacks living in the South from voting
1868 — Equal protection granted to slaves in the USA: 94% Republican support and 0% Democratic support
1870 — Black suffrage: 100% Republicans voted for; 0% Democrats voted against
1915 — First motion-picture movie to be shown in the White House is The Birth of a Nation, a Democratic-Party produced propaganda film depicting the KKK as heroes
1939 — “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.” – Margaret Sanger (Founder of Planned Parenthood)
1960s — “I’ll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years” – Lyndon B. Johnson
2014 — 36% of all abortion in the US were performed on black women compared to the national black population of 13.3%
Even a cursory glance at the dark history of the Democratic Party reveals that they have been the party of death long before the 21st century. Rather than being concerned about the responsibilities of citizens, the Democratic Party platform has been driven by the idols of human entitlement and personal autonomy.
These two enlightenment ‘virtues’ have been fought for relentlessly, and its leaders have not been without blood on their hands. Such has been the case with the issue of abortion, which has led to the slaughter of over 45 million babies in the USA from the date it was officially legalised in 1973.
At the beginning of the year, New York instituted the Reproductive Health Act, an Act that essentially legalises the murder of a baby until the day it is born. And why is it that the Democratic Party is so uncompromisingly committed to screaming and shouting for this issue if it really is just access to healthcare?
Well, the Democratic Party has always framed the issue of abortion with various euphemisms such as womens’ ‘choice’, ‘rights’, or (my personal favourite) ‘health’. However, the choice, rights or, in particular, health of the person most affected by this decision is tragically never mentioned, let alone considered.
Significantly, this is entirely consistent with their historic tradition of sloganeering to vilify certain population groups for the sake of their own political and economic dominance.
By continuing to target certain population groups as untermenschen — sub-humans who are nothing more than bags of biological matter, Democrats remove the need to justify their actions. And that means that in 2019, unborn babies are the most frequent and recent on their hitlist.
Consider just three parallels between the Democratic justification of slavery and abortion:
Property: Just as slaves were considered the property of their owners, unborn babies are considered the property of pregnant women.
Development: Just as black slaves were seen by the Democrats as sub-human due to a lack of evolutionary development, unborn babies are viewed as just a ‘clump of cells’ due to their low level of development.
Environment: Just as slaves were considered property due to their living on the owner’s premises, unborn babies are considered a woman’s property as they live in the mother’s womb.
To compound this, consider the realities that more than 19 million African American children have been slaughtered through abortion since Roe v. Wade, and that 79% of Planned Parenthood facilities are located in minority neighbourhoods.
However, this is not just an American, but a pressing Australian political issue as well. And the writing was really on the wall when in 2013, on an episode of ABC’s Q & A, American author Dan Savage was asked what ‘Dangerous Idea’ he believed would change the world for the better.
Savage suggested we implement ‘mandatory abortion for 30 years’ as a form of population control. One could imagine that pro-choice advocates would be putrefied at such a suggestion, eliminating a woman’s right to choose. However, the audience shockingly responded with amusement and applause. What is it in a nation that would elicit such an appalling response?
As Princeton ethicist Peter Singer has argued for decades, why don’t we legalise infanticide? After all, if it is legal to murder a baby the moment before it is born, what makes it wrong to murder after it exits the mother’s womb? Why would we ever want to obstruct a woman’s choice?
The true face of the Democratic is grim, and many are even scared to delve into the party’s history. If we wish to understand the true monstrosity of the recent New York abortion legislation, we must understand and acknowledge the history of the party from which it has come. As LifeSiteNews has rightly argued, “The Democrats are now the party of infanticide, and no one can deny it.”

Activists within the pro-LGBT Methodist Church claimed Edwards’ words “distressed” co-workers. They accused the father of five of engaging in behaviour that “was extremely damaging”, arguing that he was also potentially hurting the organisation’s “business plan”.
This is not a tit-for-tat war, in which one side’s casualties justify or validate an equal number of deaths on the other side. On Israel’s side, this is a war for security and survival, while for Hamas, it is a war to eliminate Israel.
