Democrats don’t ever tell the truth about their shared history with African Americans. They will never admit that the Confederacy was formed by Democrats intent on keeping their ancestors locked on plantations as slaves. They will never admit that the Klu Klux Klan was formed and populated by Democrats who had been members of the Confederate Army. They have lied about which Party was home to some of the worst bigots in American history.
Black conservative writer K. Carl Smith summed these lies up with: “When I grew up in Alabama, I thought George Wallace was a Republican. I thought Bull Connor was a Republican. I believed the people that bombed the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Ala., were part of the Republican Party….. all of the things I believed to be true I found it was a lie.”
Last Friday, the new movie “42” referring to Jackie Robinson’s uniform number was released. It is apparently a stirring tale of how a black American named Jack Roosevelt Robinson, who had the skill and courage necessary to pull it off, broke the color barrier and played baseball for the Brooklyn Dodgers.
What is certain is that the Hollywood version of the Jackie Robinson story will not tell us about his life as a Republican activist after baseball. It will not touch on the strongly-held Republican beliefs of Branch Rickey, the man who signed Robinson to play baseball for the Dodgers, ironically played by leading Hollywood liberal Harrison Ford. Nor will it mention that it was not until in 1959, twelve years after Robinson was first at bat, that Boston (a bastion of phony liberalism) became the very last city to put a black man (Pumpsie Green) on its baseball field.
Jackie Robinson’s post-baseball years are just another story about black people the Democrats and their lap dog media ignore because it doesn’t fit the tapestry of lies they need their plantation hands to hear and believe.
The Democrats want the “truth” to be: “Yes Robinson had these wired un-politically correct conservative thoughts, but in 1960 when he saw Richard Nixon refuse to campaign in Harlem he was cleansed of them.” Nevertheless, Robinson’s autobiography strongly suggests otherwise. He was impressed with the enormous sums of money that white Republican Nelson Rockefeller’s family had given to support black colleges (Spellman College, which is today a leading anti-Republican nest, was founded by John D. Rockefeller and named for his mother.) Robinson liked a certain brand of Republicanism. He was a Rockefeller Republican, but a Republican nonetheless.
In order to campaign for Nelson Rockefeller in 1964, Robinson gave up a well- paying, very secure job as a spokesman for Chock Full O’Nuts coffee company. Yet who could deny that if Jackie Robinson was alive today he would be mocked and reviled by the creeps at MSNBC because his political beliefs would not fit the plantation field-hand mentality they demand from blacks? Number 42 would be just another Uncle Tom to them.
