LIST: Trump Disavowing White Supremacy…through the Years (Videos, Transcripts)

Posted by FactReal on October 23, 2020

Below is a chronological list (with videos & transcripts) of Donald Trump disavowing white supremacists, neo-Nazis, the KKK, David Duke, hate groups, etc.

Liberals and Democrats want Americans to reject Trump. The leftist media continue to pepper Trump with accusations disguised as questions to:
1. Falsely suggest that Trump has never condemned white supremacists before.
2. Smear Trump as a racist.

Below is proof leftists are lying to us.

Caveat: We don’t know anything about the Proud Boys!
Every time a conservative or Republican is called a racist or asked questions implying you are a racist, respond by citing quick facts about the Democrats’ racism. Leftists don’t like to be confronted with their misdeeds. They also don’t want others to know that the Democrat Party is the party of slavery/KKK/segregation, etc.



Q: “When you say the Party is self-destructing, what do you see as the biggest problem with the Reform Party right now?”

TRUMP: “Well, you’ve got David Duke just joined — a bigot, a racist, a problem. I mean, this is not exactly the people you want in your party.”

Q: How would you characterize — to put this to rest — how would you characterize, in more words than one, David Duke?

TRUMP: “David Duke is a bad person, who I disavowed on numerous occasions over the years. [..] I disavowed the KKK. I just did the Today Show and it is the same thing. And I said, ‘How many times do I have to disavow?’ Do you want me to do it again for the 12th time? […] Mika, just to put it clear. I disavowed him in the past. And I disavow him now. And it was very clear that I disavowed. But the press doesn’t want to — they just love the story. By the way, if you look at my twitter, which took place just about the same time of that show, you’ll see I disavowed there too.”

Q: “What are your views on the Ku Klux Klan and white supremacists?”

TRUMP: “I totally disavow the Ku Klux Klan. I totally disavow David Duke. I’ve been doing it now for two weeks. This is – you’re probably about the 18th person that’s asked me the question… Ultimately he got to the Ku Klux Klan, which obviously I’m going to disavow. And, by the way, if you look on my Twitter account, almost immediately after the program they were disavowed again.”

TRUMP: But I have rejected. How many times do I have to reject.I reject David Duke, rejected David Duke. I have rejected the KKK, the Ku Klux Klan. From the time I’m 5 years old, I rejected them. I put it on Twitter last week. How many times? You know, it’s an amazing thing with Twitter. I have 6 million, more than 6 million. And I have another 6 million with Facebook. I have like 13 or almost 14 million with Instagram. When I put out a minor message, everybody picks it up. Donald Trump just tweeted something very unimportant. Let me just explain. When I put out that I reject the KKK and David Duke, nobody picks it up. You know why they don’t? Because they don’t want to pick it up. They pick it up. You pick it up. Everyone else picks it up — you saw — simultaneously, practically at the same time. They don’t want to pick it up. Now, I have been asked this question so many times. I have rejected it so many times. […] So, I said it myself. How many times do I have to reject or disavow?

Q: Let me ask you this question. What about the — David Duke is saying to his supporters and followers, vote for Donald Trump. White supremacist are saying, vote — do you want those votes?

TRUMP: No, I don’t want them. And I don’t want him to say it. I can’t help if he says it, if he says it. But I don’t want it and I don’t — if he says it — John, if he says it, he says it, OK? Do I want it? No.

Q: And you don’t want the supporters?

TRUMP: No, I don’t want anything. But how many times…

Q: What do you think of white supremacists, by the way?

TRUMP: I don’t like any group of hate. Hate groups are not for me. But I have said this before. The press hates me to say it. They just don’t want to pick it up.

Q: Would you support a Democrat over David Duke if that was what was necessary to defeat him?

TRUMP: I guess, depending on who the Democrat, but the answer would be yes. Look, the answer is, as quick as you can say it. In fact, I went to answer you before you — Because last time with another person in your position, I did it very quickly. And they said, “He didn’t do it fast enough.” Rebuked. Is that okay?

We must love each other, show affection for each other, and unite together in condemnation of hatred, bigotry, and violence. We must rediscover the bonds of love and loyalty that bring us together as Americans. Racism is evil.

Those who spread violence in the name of bigotry strike at the very core of America. Two days ago, a young American woman, Heather Heyer, was tragically killed. Her death fills us with grief, and we send her family our thoughts, our prayers, and our love.”

8/15/2017 [TOPIC: Charlottesville violence] No, Trump didn’t call neo-Nazis “fine people.”

Video and transcript prove Trump was talking about pro- and anti-statue protestors, not neo-Nazis vs. Antifa thugs when he said there “were fine people on both sides.” Trump also said, “I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists — because they should be condemned totally.”

Q: Do you think that what you call the alt-left is the same as neo-Nazis?

TRUMP: Those people — all of those people –excuse me, I’ve condemned neo-Nazis. I’ve condemned many different groups. But not all of those people were neo-Nazis, believe me. Not all of those people were white supremacists by any stretch. Those people were also there because they wanted to protest the taking down of a statue of Robert E. Lee.

Q: The neo-Nazis started this. They showed up in Charlottesville to protest —

TRUMP: Excuse me, excuse me. They didn’t put themselves — and you had some very bad people in that group, but you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides. You had people in that group — excuse me, excuse me, I saw the same pictures as you did. — You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down of, to them, a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name.

Q: George Washington and Robert E. Lee are not the same.

TRUMP: George Washington was a slave owner. Was George Washington a slave owner? So will George Washington now lose his status? Are we going to take down — Excuse me, are we going to take down statues to George Washington? How about Thomas Jefferson? What do you think of Thomas Jefferson? You like him?

Q I do love Thomas Jefferson.

TRUMP: Okay, good. Are we going to take down the statue? Because he was a major slave owner. Now, are we going to take down his statue? So you know what, it’s fine. You’re changing history. You’re changing culture. And you had people — and I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists — because they should be condemned totally. But you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists. Okay? And the press has treated them absolutely unfairly. Now, in the other group also, you had some fine people. But you also had troublemakers, and you see them come with the black outfits and with the helmets, and with the baseball bats. You had a lot of bad people in the other group.

9/29/2020 [TOPIC: “Stand down/stand by, Proud Boys” controversy]:

1) The word “stand” was brought up first by the debate moderator (not Trump) when he prompted Trump to condemn white supremacists and militia groups and “to say that they need to stand down.” Transcript and video show Trump answering “sure” even though the moderator (Fox News’ Chris Wallace) hadn’t finished the question. Then Trump said, “Sure, I’m willing to do that.” [But the leftwing media continue to report that Trump failed to condemn the supremacists and that he gave an order to the Proud Boys to “stand by & ready”.]

2) Joe Biden was the first to mention the “Proud Boys.”
Transcript and video show Trump complying with Biden’s and Wallace’s request by responding, “Proud Boys, stand back and stand by.” [Next day Trump explained that “stand down/back/by” meant to get out of the way – to let law enforcement handle the Antifa rioters.]

Video | Transcript (emphasis added):

WALLACE: “Are you willing, tonight to condemn white supremacists and militia groups —

TRUMP: Sure.

WALLACE: — and to say that they need to stand down and not add to the violence in a number of these cities as we saw in Kenosha, and as we’ve seen in Portland.

TRUMP: Sure, I’m willing to do that.

WALLACE: Are you prepared specifically to do it.
WALLACE: So what are you — what are you saying?

TRUMP: I’m willing to do anything. I want to see peace.

WALLACE: Well, then, do it, sir.

TRUMP: I am —

BIDEN: Say it. Do it. Say it.

TRUMP: Do you call them — What do you want to call them? Give me a name. Give me a name.

WALLACE: White supremacist — and right-wing militia.

TRUMP: Go ahead. Who would you like me to condemn?

BIDEN: White supremacists. The Proud Boys.


WALLACE: White supremacists and right-wing militia.

TRUMP: Proud Boys, stand back and stand by. But I’ll tell you what, I’ll tell you what. Somebody’s got to do something about Antifa and the left. Because this is not a right-wing problem —

BIDEN: His own — his own FBI director said —

TRUMP: –this is a left-wing problem. This is a left-wing problem.

BIDEN: — the threat comes from white supremacists. Antifa is an idea, not an organization.

9/30/2020: Trump explains the ‘stand down’ remark means ‘let law enforcement handle the rioters’:

As we explained above (day 9/29/2020), the word “stand” was brought up first by the debate moderator (not Trump).

From The White House:


Q: “Do you denounce white supremacists?”

TRUMP: “I’ve always denounced any form — any form, any form of any of that, you have to denounce”.

ABC’s Kyra Phillips tweeted: “Just now: ⁦@realDonaldTrump⁩ tells me he DENOUNCES white supremacists”


Exchange between Trump’s Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany & Fox News reporter John Roberts:
Video | Transcript:

ROBERTS: Kayleigh, if I could start off, I’d like to ask you for a definitive and declarative statement, without ambiguity or deflection: As the person who speaks for the President, does the President denounce white supremacism and groups that espouse it in all their forms?

MCENANY: This has been answered, yesterday by the President himself, the day before by the President himself on the debate stage. The President was asked this; he said “sure” three times. Yesterday, he was point-blank asked, “Do you denounce white supremacy?” And he said, “I’ve always denounced any form of that.”

I can go back and read for you — in August 2019, “In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry, and white supremacy.” In August of 2017, “Racism is evil, and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups.” I have an entire list of these quotes that I can go through with you.

He has condemned white supremacy more than any President in modern history.

McEnany later tweeted that Robert’s reporter-wife had tweeted 21 hours before that Trump had denounced white supremacists:


TRUMP: “Let me be clear, I condemn the KKK, white supremacists and the Proud Boys. I don’t know much about the Proud Boys, almost nothing, but I condemn that. But he [Joe Biden] should condemn, also, Antifa. Antifa is a horrible group of people. They kill people. They — what they do to people — and they’re causing insurrection. They’re causing riots. He doesn’t want to do that, but the press doesn’t go after him. And that’s a really bad group of people. But I condemn them.”

11/18/2016: ‘Hamilton’ Cast Treated Mike Pence as a Racist Dictator…while they wanted ‘Non-White’ Actors

Posted by FactReal on October 30, 2018


Days after the 2016 election, VP-elect Mike Pence was treated as a racist dictator by the cast of the Broadway musical “Hamilton.”
(It’s obvious the cast seems to ignore the Democrats’ Racist Past)

The cast bullied Pence on the false premise that the Trump administration would be racist:[1]

The cast of the Broadway musical “Hamilton,” a show about the duel between Founding Father Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr, felt it appropriate to bully and lecture Mr. Pence at the end of the show, which he attended.

Actor Brandon Victor Dixon, speaking on behalf of the cast (all of whom, ironically, found a safe space holding hands as though they were the ones about to be bullied) ambushed Mr. Pence with a condescending lecture premised on the expectation that the new administration would be racist and unfair.

The audience, which booed Mr. Pence and his family as they entered the theater, and then booed them again during certain points in the musical, applauded the rebuke.

Actor’s Racist & Sexist Tweets:

The left always goes too far, and the “Hamilton” stunt was exactly one of those times. They intended to embarrass Mr. Pence, but they embarrassed only themselves. After the ambush, President-elect Donald Trump and many others (including this columnist) called for the “Hamilton” cast to apologize. Mr. Dixon said there was no need as it was a “conversation.” That’s like claiming a bully sucker-punching someone is the equivalent of having a chat.

Not so surprising, this same actor who dares to lecture Mr. Pence on fairness and diversity is a hypocrite and is now under fire for what some consider racist and sexist tweets. Mr. Dixon refers in one tweet to women as “hos” (the slang for whores) and in one case tweeted, “St. Patty’s day weekend is like Christmas for black dudes who like white chicks. Happy holidays boys.”

In July 2013 he also tweeted, “4 every racist comment I get about Trayvon Im going 2 turn 1 white married suburban housewife & mother n2 a jump off. The. Best.” Jump off apparently referring to a casual sexual encounter.

‘Hamilton’ ad seeking ‘non-white’ actors:[5]

The musical was at the center of another controversy in March after posting a casting notice seeking “non-white” performers.

The notice for an open casting call in New York advertised open auditions for singers “who rap,” adding, “Seeking NON-WHITE men and women, ages 20s to 30s, for Broadway and upcoming Tours!” […]

“What if they put an ad out that said, ‘Whites only need apply?’” […]

The law states that it is an unlawful “for an employer… because of the actual written or perceived… race of any person, to discriminate.”

Summary of the night:[2]

Vice-President-elect Mike Pence took the opportunity of being in New York City…to attend the Broadway hit musical “Hamilton”. Ruining what might have been an enjoyable night out at the theater, the show cast lectured and harassed Mr. Pence, criticizing his new administration barely a week after he and Donald Trump were elected. So much for the theater being a safe space, free from microaggressions.

Actor’s main remarks:[3]

Brandon Victor Dixon’s remarks Friday night … yet again revealed the peculiar failure of liberal America to practice the empathy it preaches.

The actor who plays Aaron Burr in “Hamilton” thanked Vice President-elect Mike Pence for coming to the show, then spoke up for “the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us . . . or defend us and uphold our inalienable rights, sir. But we truly hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and work on behalf of all of us.”

The words were perfectly respectful — but the implication was downright rude.

And blindly condescending. All the marches and media hysteria have made it quite plain how much alarm many feel over Donald Trump’s victory.

…Caricatures created by the Democrat Party and the national liberal media

Michael Goodwin in his column, “Dear liberals: Start practicing the empathy you preach,” points what liberals hate “is the caricature of them the Democratic Party and the national liberal media created, and that you swallowed.”[4]

You don’t just reject Trump, you also hold contempt for his supporters. You belittle their concerns and demonize their resistance to your power. Among yourselves, you ask, how can they be so stupid to elect such a stupid man?

[T]hat contempt for certain less fortunate Americans is real. Such hate is anathema to the classical meaning of liberalism, and is often directed at an unknown adversary. So it is here, because most of you don’t actually know Trump supporters. […]

Actually, you don’t really hate them, either. What you hate is the caricature of them the Democratic Party and the national liberal media created, and that you swallowed, hook, line and sinker.

You fell for the oldest trick in the propaganda playbook. Obama, Clinton, Hollywood and their media handmaidens “otherized” tens of millions of hardworking, God-fearing Americans, and you said amen.

These hucksters turned anecdotes into universal truths. They found a racist or heard an anti-Muslim comment at a Trump rally and bingo, declared an entire movement bitter clingers, deplorables and irredeemables.

You accepted the caricature because it fit the stereotypes reinforced in your closed circle. It has ever been thus for the smart set.

Diverse actors representing white males:[2]

“Hamilton” does indeed have a diverse cast with Black, biracial and Asian cast members representing our White male founding fathers…Until they stepped over the line. At a casting call earlier this year, they called for “non-white” actors, contradicting the inclusiveness the play supposedly represents.

No diversity at liberal media boards: [2]

Perhaps it is worth looking at these institutions to see how diverse and inclusive they are. Or are they living in glass houses casting stones?

The US Census Bureau breaks down the US population as 62 percent White, 18 percent Hispanic, 13 percent Black, and 6 percent Asian. And of course, a 50-50 distribution of males and females.

The executive editor of the Huffington Post tweeted a now famous photo of an editors’ meeting

All women, no Blacks. Hardly the bastion of diversity that they are already criticizing Trump over.

CNN has a digital leadership team of six. Four men, two women, all White.

The Washington Post has eight editorial board members. Six White men, one White woman, one Black man.

The New York Times editorial board fares a bit better in the diversity department. Of 16 board members, only nine White men, two Black men, and seven women, six of whom are White. Not so much for their executive team of thirteen members. Nine are White guys, one Black guy, and three White women.

Not only news organizations, but sports teams too. The NFL has a commitment to diversity. Yet NFL players are 68 percent Black, 28 percent White, and only 1 percent Hispanic. Hardly the diversity seen in the American population.

The NBA is also committed to diversity and inclusion. Much like the NFL, the NBA racial complexion is far different than that of America. Players are 69 percent Black, 22 percent White, and 4 percent Hispanic.

The point is that these organizations, extolling the virtues of diversity and inclusiveness, aren’t practicing what they preach. Hypocrisy? Yes.

Alexander Hamilton favored the electoral college, which liberal hate…because they lost the 2016 election:[2]

An ironic aside lost on the cast members lecturing and audience booing Mr. Pence is that Alexander Hamilton, namesake of the Broadway play, probable author of Federalist Paper 68, argued in favor of the electoral college for choosing the president. Yes, the same electoral college that modern-day liberals want to abolish since it didn’t deliver their desired election outcome.

Did you know that the Democrat Party:
– defended slavery,
– started the Civil War
– founded the KKK, and
– fought against every major civil rights act in U.S. history?

Carol Swain, professor of political science at Vanderbilt University, shares the inconvenient history of the Democratic Party:

RACISM & The Democrat Party

In his 2007 article, Bruce Bartlett reminded us of the racist history of the Democratic Party: “[Democrats] were openly and explicitly for slavery before the Civil War, supported lynching and “Jim Crow” laws after the war, and regularly defended segregation and white supremacy throughout most of the 20th century.”

Bartlett also provided a list of racist quotes from prominent Democrats:

“I am a former Kleagle [recruiter] of the Ku Klux Klan in Raleigh County. . . . The Klan is needed today as never before and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia. It is necessary that the order be promoted immediately and in every state in the union.”

–Robert C. Byrd, 1946 Democratic Senator from West Virginia, 1959-present Senate Majority Leader, 1977-80 and 1987-88 Senate President Pro Tempore, 1989-95, 2001-03, 2007-present His portrait stands in the U.S. Capitol.

President Truman’s civil rights program “is a farce and a sham–an effort to set up a police state in the guise of liberty. I am opposed to that program. I have voted against the so-called poll tax repeal bill. . .. I have voted against the so-called anti-lynching bill.”

–Rep. Lyndon B. Johnson (D., Texas), 1948 U.S. Senator, 1949-61
Senate Majority Leader, 1955-61 President, 1963-69

“This is a white man’s country, and will always remain a white man’s country.”

“This passport which you have given me is a symbol to me of the passport which you have given me before. I do not feel that it would be out of place to state to you here on this occasion that I know that without the support of the members of this organization I would not have been called, even by my enemies, the ‘Junior Senator from Alabama.’ ”

–Hugo Black, accepting a life membership in the Ku Klux Klan upon his election to the U.S. Senate as a Democrat from Alabama, 1926 Appointed to the Supreme Court by Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1937

“You cannot go into a Dunkin’ Donuts or a 7-Eleven unless you have a slight Indian accent.”

“My state was a slave state. My state is a border state. My state has the eighth largest black population in the country. My state is anything [but] a Northeastern liberal state.”

“I mean, you got the first mainstream African American [Barack Obama] who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice looking guy.”

“There’s less than 1% of the population of Iowa that is African American. There is probably less than 4% or 5% that is, are minorities. What is it in Washington? So look, it goes back to what you start off with, what you’re dealing with.”

Sen. Joseph Biden Jr., (D., Del.), 2006-07 Chairman, Committee on the Judiciary, 1987-95 Chairman, Committee on Foreign Relations Candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, 2008

If blacks were given the right to vote, that would “place every splay-footed, bandy-shanked, hump-backed, thick-lipped, flat-nosed, woolly-headed, ebon-colored Negro in the country upon an equality with the poor white man.”

–Rep. Andrew Johnson, (D., Tenn.), 1844 President, 1865-69

Blacks “are inferior to the whites in the endowments of both of body and mind.”

–Thomas Jefferson, 1787 Co-founder of the Democratic Party (along with Andrew Jackson) President, 1801-09

“I hold that the present state of civilization, where two races of different origin, and distinguished by color, and other physical differences, as well as intellectual, are brought together, the relation now existing in the slaveholding states between the two, is, instead of an evil, a good–a positive good.”

–Sen. John C. Calhoun (D., S.C.), 1837 Vice President, 1825-32
His statue stands in the U.S. Capitol.

“Resolved, That the Democratic Party will resist all attempts at renewing, in Congress or out of it, the agitation of the slavery question, under whatever shape or color the attempt may be made.”

“Resolved, That claiming fellowship with, and desiring the co-operation of all who regard the preservation of the Union under the Constitution as the paramount issue–and repudiating all sectional parties and platforms concerning domestic slavery, which seek to embroil the States and incite to treason and armed resistance to law in the Territories; and whose avowed purposes, if consummated, must end in civil war and disunion, the American Democracy recognize and adopt the principles contained in the organic laws establishing the Territories of Kansas and Nebraska as embodying the only sound and safe solution of the ‘slavery question’ upon which the great national idea of the people of this whole country can repose in its determined conservatism of the Union–NON-INTERFERENCE BY CONGRESS WITH SLAVERY IN STATE AND TERRITORY, OR IN THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA” (emphasis in original).

–Platform of the Democratic Party, 1856

“I hold that a Negro is not and never ought to be a citizen of the United States. I hold that this government was made on the white basis; made by the white men, for the benefit of white men and their posterity forever, and should be administered by white men and none others.”

–Sen. Stephen A. Douglas (D., Ill.), 1858 Presidential nominee of the Democratic Party, 1860

“Resolved, That the enactments of the State Legislatures to defeat the faithful execution of the Fugitive Slave Law, are hostile in character, subversive of the Constitution, and revolutionary in their effect.”

–Rep. Fernando Wood (D., N.Y.), 1865 Mayor of New York City, 1855-58, 1860-62

“My fellow citizens, I have said that the contest before us was one for the restoration of our government; it is also one for the restoration of our race. It is to prevent the people of our race from being exiled from their homes–exiled from the government which they formed and created for themselves and for their children, and to prevent them from being driven out of the country or trodden under foot by an inferior and barbarous race.”

–Francis P. Blair Jr., accepting the Democratic nomination for Vice President, 1868 Democratic Senator from Missouri, 1869-72His statue stands in the U.S. Capitol.

–Platform of the Democratic Party, 1868

–Platform of the Democratic Party, 1876

“No more Chinese immigration, except for travel, education, and foreign commerce, and that even carefully guarded.”

–Platform of the Democratic Party, 1880

“American civilization demands that against the immigration or importation of Mongolians to these shores our gates be closed.”

–Platform of the Democratic Party, 1884

“We favor the continuance and strict enforcement of the Chinese exclusion law, and its application to the same classes of all Asiatic races.”

–Platform of the Democratic Party, 1900

“The repeal of the fifteenth amendment, one of the greatest blunders and therefore one of the greatest crimes in political history, is a consummation to be devoutly wished for.”

–Rep. John Sharpe Williams (D., Miss.), 1903 House Minority Leader, 1903-08

“Republicanism means Negro equality, while the Democratic Party means that the white man is supreme. That is why we Southerners are all Democrats.”

–Sen. Ben Tillman (D., S.C.), 1906 Chairman, Committee on Naval Affairs, 1913-19

“We are opposed to the admission of Asiatic immigrants who can not be amalgamated with our population, or whose presence among us would raise a race issue and involve us in diplomatic controversies with Oriental powers.”

–Platform of the Democratic Party, 1908

“I am opposed to the practice of having colored policemen in the District [of Columbia]. It is a source of danger by constantly engendering racial friction, and is offensive to thousands of Southern white people who make their homes here.”

–Sen. Hoke Smith (D., Ga.), 1912 Appointed Secretary of the Interior by Grover Cleveland in 1893

“The South is serious with regard to its attitude to the Negro in politics. The South understands this subject, and its policy is unalterable and uncompromising. We desire no concessions. We seek no sops. We grasp no shadows on this subject. We take no risks. We abhor a Northern policy of catering to the Negro in politics just as we abhor a Northern policy of social equality.”

–Josephus Daniels, editor, Raleigh News & Observer, 1912
Appointed Secretary of the Navy by Woodrow Wilson in 1913 Appointed Ambassador to Mexico by Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1933 USS Josephus Daniels named for him by the Johnson Administration in 1965

“The Negro as a race, in all the ages of the world, has never shown sustained power of self-development. He is not endowed with the creative faculty. . . . He has never created for himself any civilization. . . . He has never had any civilization except that which has been inculcated by a superior race. And it is a lamentable fact that his civilization lasts only so long as he is in the hands of the white man who inculcates it. When left to himself he has universally gone back to the barbarism of the jungle.”

–Sen. James Vardaman (D., Miss.), 1914 Chairman, Committee on Natural Resources, 1913-19

“Slavery among the whites was an improvement over independence in Africa. The very progress that the blacks have made, when–and only when–brought into contact with the whites, ought to be a sufficient argument in support of white supremacy–it ought to be sufficient to convince even the blacks themselves.”

–William Jennings Bryan, 1923 Presidential nominee of the Democratic Party, 1896, 1900 and 1908 Appointed Secretary of State by Woodrow Wilson in 1913 His statue stands in the U.S. Capitol.

“Anyone who has traveled to the Far East knows that the mingling of Asiatic blood with European or American blood produces, in nine cases out of ten, the most unfortunate results. . . . The argument works both ways. I know a great many cultivated, highly educated and delightful Japanese. They have all told me that they would feel the same repugnance and objection to have thousands of Americans settle in Japan and intermarry with the Japanese as I would feel in having large numbers of Japanese coming over here and intermarry with the American population. In this question, then, of Japanese exclusion from the United States it is necessary only to advance the true reason–the undesirability of mixing the blood of the two peoples. . . . The Japanese people and the American people are both opposed to intermarriage of the two races–there can be no quarrel there.”

–Franklin D. Roosevelt, 1925 President, 1933-45

“Mr. President, the crime of lynching . . . is not of sufficient importance to justify this legislation.”

–Sen. Claude Pepper (D., Fla.), 1938 Spoken while engaged in a six-hour speech against the antilynching bill

“There is no warrant for the curious notion that Christianity favors the involuntary commingling of the races in social institutions. Although He knew both Jews and Samaritans and the relations existing between them, Christ did not advocate that courts or legislative bodies should compel them to mix socially against their will.”

–Sen. Sam Ervin (D., N.C.), 1955 Chairman, Committee on Government Operations, 1971-75

“The decline and fall of the Roman empire came after years of intermarriage with other races. Spain was toppled as a world power as a result of the amalgamation of the races. . . . Certainly history shows that nations composed of a mongrel race lose their strength and become weak, lazy and indifferent.”

–Herman E. Talmadge, 1955 Democratic Senator from Georgia, 1957-81
Chairman, Committee on Agriculture, 1971-81

“These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference. For if we don’t move at all, then their allies will line up against us and there’ll be no way of stopping them, we’ll lose the filibuster and there’ll be no way of putting a brake on all sorts of wild legislation. It’ll be Reconstruction all over again.”

–Sen. Lyndon B. Johnson (D., Texas), 1957

“I have never seen very many white people who felt they were being imposed upon or being subjected to any second-class citizenship if they were directed to a waiting room or to any other public facility to wait or to eat with other white people. Only the Negroes, of all the races which are in this land,
publicly proclaim they are being mistreated, imposed upon, and declared second-class citizens because they must go to public facilities with members of their own race.”

–Sen. Richard B. Russell Jr. (D., Ga.), 1961 The Russell Senate Office Building is named for him.

“I did not lie awake at night worrying about the problems of Negroes.”

–Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, 1961 Kennedy later authorized wiretapping the phones and bugging the hotel rooms of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

“I’m not going to use the federal government’s authority deliberately to circumvent the natural inclination of people to live in ethnically homogeneous neighborhoods. . . . I have nothing against a community that’s made up of people who are Polish or Czechoslovakian or French-Canadian or blacks who are trying to maintain the ethnic purity of their neighborhoods.”

–Jimmy Carter, 1976 President, 1977-81 Winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, 2002

“The Confederate Memorial has had a special place in my life for many years. . . . There were many, many times that I found myself drawn to this deeply inspiring memorial, to contemplate the sacrifices of others, several of whom were my ancestors, whose enormous suffering and collective gallantry are to this day still misunderstood by most Americans.”

–James Webb, 1990 Now a Democratic Senator from Virginia

“Everybody likes to go to Geneva. I used to do it for the Law of the Sea conferences and you’d find these potentates from down in Africa, you know, rather than eating each other, they’d just come up and get a good square meal in Geneva.”

–Sen. Ernest F. Hollings (D., S.C.) 1993 Chairman, Commerce Committee, 1987-95 and 2001-03 Candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, 1984

“I do not think it is an exaggeration at all to say to my friend from West Virginia [Sen. Robert C. Byrd, a former Ku Klux Klan recruiter] that he would have been a great senator at any moment. . . . He would have been right during the great conflict of civil war in this nation.”

–Sen. Christopher Dodd (D., Conn.), 2004 Chairman, Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, 2008

“It has of late become the custom of the men of the South to speak with entire candor of the settled and deliberate policy of suppressing the negro vote. They have been forced to choose between a policy of manifest injustice toward the blacks and the horrors of negro rule. They chose to disfranchise the negroes. That was manifestly the lesser of two evils. . . . The Republican Party committed a great public crime when it gave the right of suffrage to the blacks. . . . So long as the Fifteenth Amendment stands, the menace of the rule of the blacks will impend, and the safeguards against it must be maintained.”

–Editorial, “The Political Future of the South,” New York Times, May 10, 1900

Obama: “Rich People are for Non-Violence; They Don’t Want People Taking their Stuff” (Video)

Posted by FactReal on October 3, 2012

Video unearthed by Patterico shows Obama promoting class envy during his speech in a church at a 2002 Martin Luther King Jr. Day memorial service.
Transcript via Patterico:

The philosophy of nonviolence only makes sense if the powerful can be made to recognize themselves in the powerless. It only makes sense if the powerless can be made to recognize themselves in the powerful. You know, the principle of empathy gives broader meaning, by the way, to Dr. King’s philosophy of nonviolence. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but rich people are all for nonviolence. Why wouldn’t they be? They’ve got what they want. They want to make sure people don’t take their stuff. But the principle of empathy recognizes that there are more subtle forms of violence to which we are answerable. The spirit of empathy condemns not only the use of firehoses and attack dogs to keep people down but also accountants and tax loopholes to keep people down. I’m not saying that what Enron executives did to their employees is the moral equivalent of what Bull Connor did to black folks, but I’ll tell you what, the employees at Enron feel violated. When a company town sees its plant closing because some distant executives made some
decision despite the wage concessions, despite the tax breaks, and they see their entire economy collapsing, they feel violence

New Black Panther to Create Military to Hang and Skin White People (Audio)

Posted by FactReal on August 15, 2012

More threats from the leftist and anti-white group of the New Black Panther Party, a hate group protected by the Obama Administration.
(Warning: Graphic Language)
The Blaze reports:

[T]he most shocking comments come in a separate piece of audio posted on the site. In it, the host says blacks are “too scared” to drag whites out of their houses, skin them, hang them in trees, drag them behind trucks, and pour acid on them. He talks about that as he announces the desire for a new “military.” The host, which appears to be King Samir Shabazz of “kill cracker babies fame,” repeats the threat that made him famous: mainly that blacks will have to kill white babies “seconds” after they’re born — and he suggests firebombing nurseries to do it

The Daily Caller and Breitbart have more.
