Julian Bond, the civil rights leader, died recently. I saw it in my paper. Something stirred in my mind as I read the part about his life where:
When he was elected to the Georgia House of Representatives in 1965, along with seven other black members, furious white members of the House refused to let him take his seat, accusing him of disloyalty. He was already well known because of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee’s stand against the United States’ involvement in the Vietnam War.
I immediately smelled a rat. Do you know why? Because I have learned through a life of being forced to live through liberal-ideologue propaganda masquerading as “journalism” that if those “furious white members” had been Republican, they would have been exposed and named.
It was a matter of finding out just who these “furious white members of the House” who “refused to let [great black civil rights leader Bond] take his seat” were. I KNEW they were Democrats. Because I know the media is pathologically corrupt and dishonest. But it wasn’t easy. Because I had to keep sifting through all the press accounts that simply stated that “white members” refused to let Julian Bond take his seat. With the obvious implication being, “white” because they were RACIST and this was about RACISM.
I went through a good twenty articles and all I could find was that the members of the House who refused to let Julian Bond take his seat were “white.” NEVER a mention of the political party those racist “white members” belonged to.
But I found one tiny little nugget in the one I cite above. It pointed out that the case went all the way to the Supreme Court. And it told me the year: 1966.
So I entered “Bond” and “Supreme Court” and “v.” and “1966” to find who was fighting Bond to take his seat.
I discovered this way – and ONLY this roundabout way given a media culture that pathologically protects Democrats – that it was “Bond v. Floyd” in 1966.
Okay, so who is this “Floyd” guy?
Well, I did more searching. And discovered that we were talking about one “Rep. James “Sloppy” Floyd.” And discovered the following in the first link that came up for the turd:
James H. Floyd State Park is a 561 acre (2.27 km²) Georgia State Park located near Summerville at the base of Taylor Ridge (Georgia). The park is named after Democrat James H. “Sloppy” Floyd who served in the Georgia House of Representatives from 1953 until 1974 and was from the area. Surrounded by rural countryside and the Chattahoochee National Forest, the park offers many activities, including camping, hiking and fishing. In addition, the park contains two lakes that total 51 acres (0.21 km²) and a children’s playground. The Pinhoti Trail is accessible through the park.
And, of course, yeah, this Democrat who is so esteemed other Democrats named a park after him is a DEMOCRAT.
It was DEMOCRATS who were the “furious white members” who were so pathologically racist they wouldn’t let a black civil rights hero take his seat. But of course that fact refutes the entire dishonest liberal narrative, so no “journalist” would ever bother to report it. Facts only matter if they confirm or can be twisted into appearing to confirm a liberal narrative. So in this case “white members” appears to confirm the liberal narrative of racism so they report “white members” but refuse to report which party the “white racists” belonged to because it would amount to the finger pointers pointing their fingers at THEMSELVES.
It wasn’t just James Floyd who tried to screw Julian Bond. There were plenty of other politicians in the process. For instance, another account of Julian Bond’s life [that I found AFTER finally discovering the name James Floyd] says:
Georgia Governor Carl Sanders declared Bond’s seat vacant. The voters elected him again. The House excluded him again. Bond appealed directly to the Supreme Court.
The Atlantic doesn’t mention which political party is to blame, of course.
Hmm. Wonder which party Carl Sanders belongs to? The mainstream media will never tell you if it’s a damn Democrat, so you can either just figure or you can go to the lengths they don’t want you to go to and be your OWN journalist and look it up. So I looked the name up and:
In the 1962 Democratic gubernatorial primary, Sanders defeated former Governor Marvin Griffin. Sanders received 494,978 votes (58.7 percent) to Griffin’s 332,746 (39 percent). Thereafter, Griffin largely retired from politics. Sanders was the first Georgia governor from an urban area since the 1920s. He was the first modern Georgia governor nominated in the Democratic primary by the popular vote after the abolition of the County Unit System, a kind of electoral college formerly used to elect Georgia governors.
We just had the same garbage with the Confederate flag, the South’s symbol of pathological racism according to the news accounts. What they never bothered to tell you was that the “Confederates” were DEMOCRATS who went to war because the first REPUBLICAN and therefore ANTI-SLAVERY President was elected. They never bothered to tell anyone that the governor who reinstated the Confederate flag (which had been banned by Republicans) was a DEMOCRAT. A Republican governor named Nikki Haley finally banned the flag again. As I point out, “Let’s see how many DEMOCRAT governors could have done so before her. Since the beginning of the Civil War, 41 of the Governors of the State of South Carolina – including the ENTIRE period of segregation and “separate but equal” status – were DEMOCRATS. Versus eight Republican governors – one of whom finally took down that damned Democrat Party symbol of hate. And just to continue on the Confederate flag thing, “How about this one: guess which president as governor signed into law an act to add a Confederate star on his state flag “to commemorate the Confederate States of America.””
Yep. Democrats. But you’d never think so when you read the mainstream media, would you?
I point out some of the long, sordid history of the Democrat Party in another article that proves how hypocrite the Democrat Party is on a regular basis about “racism”:
The same is even MORE true on race. The Democrat Party was the Party that waged a brutal Civil War to continue black slavery with a United States led by Republican President named Lincoln. The Democrat Party was the Party that spawned the Ku Klux Klan as its terrorist wing of the Democrat Party. The Democrat Party under Woodrow Wilson actually RE-segregated the US Military and government service (after Republicans had de-segregated them and allowed blacks to serve). The Democrat Party in 1924 was SO completely dominated by the Ku Klux Klan that the Democrat National Convention was called “Klanbake.” The Democrat Party under FDR and their New Deal was rife with racism and unions and Democrats used it to prevent blacks from getting jobs. The Democrat Party continued to be THE Party of hard-core racism for the entire history of the republic. The racist horror story of “Mississippi Burning“ was OWNED by Democrats from the Governor right on down. In fact, the state Democrat Party in Mississippi was limited to whites only. And the fact is that a FAR higher percentage of Republican Congressmen and Senators voted for the 1964 Civil Rights Act than Democrats. Democrats were the Party of keeping the black man down until they cynically – incredibly cynically – saw that there was another way to keep exploiting black people to keep them on their plantation and keep them down.
There’s the myth and there’s the reality, there’s the Big Lie and there’s the truth. But you always have to dig more for the latter because liberals always lie and always slander.
The media simply WILL NOT be fair. They will NOT be honest. And the media’s dishonesty as agents of the left is part and parcel of the dishonesty that characterizes the left in all of its ways.
