Democrat Facts


Anti-Democratic Party Information1. Republican President Abraham Lincoln authored the Emancipation Proclamation and later abolished slavery. 1

2. During the Civil War, the majority of Democrats were in support of slavery in the south. The Democrats were the cause of the Civil War and bear responsibility for the enormous loss of life that it caused. The Democrats believed in slavery, the Republicans did not. 2

3. The Republican Party was founded primarily to oppose slavery, and Republicans eventually abolished slavery (with very little Democrat support). 3

4. The 13th Amendment, abolishing slavery, passed with 100% of support from Republicans. Only 23% of Democrats supported the 13th4

5. Lincoln’s successor, Democrat President Andrew Johnson fought to stop Republican efforts to recognize the civil rights of freed slaves, and Southern Democrats continued trying to block any such efforts for nearly 100 years later. 5

6. The 14th Amendment, giving full citizenship to freed slaves, passed with 94% Republican support and 0% Democrat support in Congress. 6

7. The 15th Amendment, giving freed slaves the right to vote, passed with support from a majority of Republicans and 0% support from Democrats in Congress. 7

8. The Klu Klux Klan was originally and primarily an arm of the Democrat Party. 8

9. In the 1950’s, Republican President Dwight Eisenhower integrated the U.S. military and promoted civil rights for minorities. 9

10. Republican President Eisenhower pushed through the Civil Rights Act of 1957. 10

11. Republican President Eisenhower’s primary political opponent on civil rights prior to 1957 was future Democrat President Lyndon Johnson. 11

You Cannot Quote12. Prior to 1957, Democrat Lyndon Johnson was a staunch supporter of racial segregation. Several quotes attributed to him prove that his sudden change of opinion was motivated by his realization that the Democrat Party could exploit blacks purely for votes. 12

13. Prior to passing the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Democrat Lyndon Johnson stated, “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.” 13

14. After passing the Civil Rights Bill of 1964, Democrat Lyndon Johnson commented, “I’ll have those niggers voting Democrat for 200 years.” History has proven him right so far. 14

15. Far more Republicans (80%) supported the Civil Rights Act of 1964 than Democrats (64%). In fact, Democrats launched an enormous effort to block it with a multitude of filibusters. 15


16. In the 1960’s the Democrat Party changed its strategy for dealing with African Americans. Thanks to Republican’s century-long fight for civil rights, the blatant racial oppression caused by Democrats was no longer a viable option. Thus, the Democrat Party decided instead to be more subtle and get blacks as dependent on government as possible via a welfare state. At the same time, the Democrats started a persistent campaign of lies and innuendo, falsely equating any opposition to their welfare state with racism. 16

17. The Democrats’ strategy of black dependence has been extremely effective. Blacks routinely vote over 90% Democrat for fear that Republicans will cut their government benefits and welfare programs. 17

18. One result of the multitude of welfare programs created by Democrats is that self-destructive behavior has become less costly. Having children outside of wedlock is less burdensome if the mother receives housing subsidies, welfare payments and food stamps. Before Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society welfare programs, the black illegitimacy rate was as low as 23%, now it has more than tripled to nearly 75%. 18

19. Democrats’ welfare programs have enticed women into a perpetual cycle of poverty with the promise of more benefits. Black families headed by single women receive among the highest level of welfare benefits, yet 37% of them live in poverty. Meanwhile, he poverty rate among black married couples has been in the single digits since 1994. The Democrats’ welfare programs have discouraged responsibility by rewarding irresponsibility. In doing so, they’ve created a massive dependence on government welfare and secured votes for Democrats for decades to come. 19

20. Democrats have continuously forced minimum wage and other labor regulations through Congress. While they appeal to their voter base, there is solid evidence that such laws are very harmful to those they are aimed at protect. In 1948, the unemployment rate for black teens was less than 10%. Today, black youth unemployment in many cities is over 50%. The minimum wage law and other regulations have cut off the bottom rungs of the economic ladder. Put yourself in the place of an employer, and ask: If I must pay $7.25 an hour – plus Social Security and workers’ comp – would it benefit me to hire a worker who is so unfortunate as to possess skills that enable him to produce only $5 work of value per hour? Most employers view that as a losing economic proposition. Thus, the Democrats forced minimum wage laws discriminate against the employment of low-skilled workers, who are most often youths – particularly black youths. 20

Detroit In Ruins21. Contrary to Democrats’ plan to treat only the symptoms of poverty, Republicans consistently aim to resolve the root causes, this includes expanding work requirements for those receiving federal welfare; more flexibility for state and local governments to improve programs, and assistance with schooling and/or job training. Rather than blindly throwing money at the problem (leaving those they intend to help in a worse position), Republicans adhere to the proverb: “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.” 21

In sum, the bulk of today’s problems for many blacks and other minorities are a result of Democrat politicians and civil rights organizations using government in the name of helping blacks when in fact they are serving only their own interests, as well as those of powerful interest groups.



Abortion Facts23. Over the past 20 years, the Democrat Party has become more extreme on abortion than ever. In 1996, the Democrats’ platform called for making abortion “less necessary” and “more rare.” Fast forward to the 2016 Democrat platform. Long gone is the goal of making abortion “rare,” along with the idea of “respecting the individual conscience of each American” on the issue. Instead, the Democrats have called for the repeal of the Hyde Amendment, in turn, allowing for abortions for Medicaid recipients, paid for with taxpayer funds. Forcing Americans to pay for the abortions of other hardly respects the “conscience rights” the Democrats once respected; rather, it is a direct assault on them. 23

24. While the Democrats’ platform calls for the repeal of the Hyde Amendment, Congressional testimony notes that the Hyde Amendment has saved over one million lives and has proven to be the greatest domestic abortion reduction law ever enacted by Congress. 24

25. Despite the fact that most babies can survive outside the womb a full four months before birth, Hillary Clinton, any nearly every other democrat has admitted that even “hours before birth, a child has no Constitutional rights.” 25

26. Most Democrats support late-term abortion (killing of child after it is able to survive outside of the mother). Few people are aware of how such abortions are performed:

a. D&C Suction: Baby is dismembered, while still alive, and dies in transit through a suction tube, or while in suction bag. 26
b. D&E Procedure: A clamp is used to reach blindly into the uterus, grab, pull, and dismember the baby as it is still alive. Lastly, the skull and face are crushed in order to fit through vagina. 27
c. Induction Abortion: salt water, urine, or potassium chloride is injected into the amniotic sac, poisoning the baby to death. 28

99% of babies were created by mutual consent to sex (“lets have some sex fun…”), but it is easy to kill them under Democrat policies. It’s all about money and keeping you on the plantation.

Margaret Sanger Quotes27. The nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, donates almost exclusively to Democrats (99% Dem. to 1% Rep.). Over the past 3 election cycles, Planned Parenthood and its affiliates have donated over $38 million to Democrats. 29

28. Planned Parenthood receives over $550 million from federal taxpayers each year. 30

29. Nearly half of those who have an abortion claim that their reason for doing so was because they were “not ready for the responsibility.” Just as with welfare, Democrats’ support of abortion further reinforces their plan to discourage personal responsibility and build reliance on government – all at a cost to tax payers and the life of an innocent child. 31

30. Blacks comprise only 13% of the population of America but account for 37% of all abortions. Furthermore, black women are 5 times more likely to abort than white women. 32

31. The largest abortion provider in America, Planned Parenthood, has located 80% of its abortion clinics in minority neighborhoods, strategically targeting minorities for abortion. 33

32. Democrats support aborting babies due to race or sex. When the U.S. House of Representatives considered the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act in 2012, which would have prohibited abortions because of the father’s race or the unborn child’s sex, 89% of Democrats opposed. A party that describes itself as a champion of women and minorities is willing to sacrifice those principles for abortion. 34

33. Democrats oppose offering women other alternatives to abortion. In recent years, Democrats have gone on the offensive against nonprofit organizations that provide women with information about abortion alternatives and offer them practical support (diapers, parenting classes, etc.) so they can choose to keep their baby. Furthermore, Democrat-authored regulations require government-funded counselors at Planned Parenthood to tell women about abortion, but adoption counseling is optional. 35

34. Because of Democrats push to favor abortion over other alternatives, Planned Parenthood averages 1 adoption referral per 149 abortions. All at a cost of over $550 million to US tax payers every year. 36

35. Democrats want to make pro-life doctors and nurses perform abortions. Most all Democrats oppose the Abortion Nondiscrimination Act, the Health Care Conscience Rights Act and similar proposals aimed at protecting the right of medical professionals to not participate in abortions. 37

36. In California, a Democrat-lead administration has illegally forced every health plan in the state – including those that churches provide for their pastors and employees – to cover all legal abortions. Thus, all California churches that have insurance plans have been forced by Democrats to pay into an insurance pool that pays for acts that they are morally opposed to. 38

Big Government

Debt Is Slavery37. During the recent Democrat administration, Democrats led a crusade to shred bipartisan budget caps enacted in 2011. The recent Democrat administration proposed to spend $75 billion more in 2016, much of it on programs that have been discredited and are outside the proper scope of the federal government, such as government-funded child-care. 39

38. The national debt grew more under the recent Democrat administration than any other presidential administration in history. Democrats added nearly $9 trillion, an 84% increase, or approximately $76,442 per household (yes, this figure is correct. Unbelievable, isn’t it!). The recent Democrat administration created more national debt than all previous presidents combined. 40

39. Since declaring independence in 1776, it took the United States 231 years to accumulate its first $9 trillion in debt. Our second $9 trillion in debt was accumulated in less than 8 years under the recent Democrat administration. 41

Democrats Believe40. Over the past eight years, Democrats signed off on 17,675 pages of new federal regulations. For every law that was passed, 18 new regulations were added. Estimates of the cost of federal regulations range as high as $2 trillion per year. All of this at tax payers’ expense. Thousands of businesses and millions of jobs destroyed. 42 43

41. With Obamacare Democrats created 20 news taxes totaling over $500 billion. Today, Obamacare is collapsing, premiums are skyrocketing, and Americans have discovered that they are getting a much worse deal than the Democrats promised them. 44

42. Democrats set a record for the size of the federal workforce, leaving office with more than 1.4 million federal employees, a 10% increase since taking office. 45

43. Democrats recently raised federal taxes on the top rate on regular income by nearly 5% and the top rate on capital gains by 10%. As a result, countless business owners have been forced to spend more of their profits on taxes, rather than growing their businesses and hiring more employees. More companies have gone out of business under Democrats, totaling millions of jobs lost. 46

44. Due to Democrats’ increased regulations and higher taxes on corporations and small businesses, companies now have less money to spend on hiring. This evident in the fact that the labor force decreased by 3% under Democrat leadership -- over 4.5 million fewer jobs. 47

National Security

45. Democrat President Jimmy Carter’s strong advocacy for human rights included financial and military support for the Mujahideen, who would later evolve into the Taliban, a barbaric Islamic political group that has committed countless atrocities on the Afghani people and provided a safe haven for 9/11 mastermind, Osama bin Laden. All told, Democrats contributed over $2 billion in firearms and cash to terrorist organizations. 48 49

46. Under Democrat President Carter’s direction, the U.S. government directly funded and even provided training for Osama bin Laden and multiple other Islamic extremists that went on to commit countless other atrocities around the world. 50

47. In the 1970’s the Democrat administration provided financial and military support for several other fascist dictatorships that tortured and killed millions of members of their domestic population. Many of the regimes that Democrats backed carried out mass slaughter that amounted to genocide. 51

48. The World Trade Center attacks on September 11 could have been averted had Democrat President Bill Clinton acted on one of the many opportunities he had to kill Osama bin Laden. Clinton himself admitted that he had nine separate opportunities to kill bin Laden but chose not to. Because of Clinton’s failure to act, al Qaeda was allowed to grow and prosper for decades, leading to the attacks on 9/11 and countless other atrocities that are still occurring today. 52

49. Democrats’ massive failure in the Iran Hostage Crisis resulted in the longest hostage crisis in recorded history (444 days) and the deaths of 8 U.S. servicemen. The conflict was resolved and all 52 hostages were released within the first week of Republican President Ronald Regan taking office. 53

50. The faith in Republican toughness on national security has had profound electoral consequences. Since 1968, with the single exception of the election of George W. Bush in 2000, Americans have chosen Republican presidents in times of perceived danger and Democrats in times of relative calm. 54

51. Democrats’ failure to form an effective foreign policy plan has resulted in ISIS flourishing around the world, and even here in America. Democrats’ negligence and lack of leadership directly caused the birth of ISIS, which has become one of America’s greatest threats to freedom and security. 55

52. Democrats failed to anticipate the rise of ISIS, which they once ridiculed as a “jayvee team,” and failed to do anything effective to impede its growth. Under the recent Democrat administration, ISIS established territory in large parts of Syria and Iraq; it now controls a volume of resources and territory unmatched in the history of extremist organizations. Under Democrats’ watch, a jihadist caliphate has been established in the heart of the Middle East – and Democrats never had an effective strategy to deal with it. 56

53. Democrats lost the War in Iraq. Republican President George W. Bush handed the recent Democrat administration a war that had been won -- In fact, on December of 2011, in welcoming troops home after ending the American presence in Iraq, Obama declared “we’re leaving behind a sovereign, stable and self-reliant Iraq.” Obama went on to describe it as a “moment of success.” Soon we learned that all our hard-earned achievements were undone by the president’s determined commitment to withdraw all American troops from Iraq during his presidency. Democrats did what they were determined to do and, as a result, Iraq is collapsing and Iran and ISIS are rushing in, increasing their influence to an unprecedented degree. Unfortunately, it seems that all of the tremendous sacrifices America has made in Iraq may soon be in vain. 57

54. Democrats’ inaction ensured that the atrocious Iranian regime would remain in place and the democracy would not take hold. In the summer of 2009, a revolution in Iran threatened to topple the mullahs. Leaders of the so-called “Green Revolution” pleaded for support. The got none. Democrat President Obama, in saying he “wanted to avoid the United States being the issue inside Iran,” did nothing to aid the pro-democracy elements that were seeking to overthrow the Islamic theocracy. By essentially casting his support with the Iranian regime during its most vulnerable period since the 1979 revolution, Obama ensured the democratic uprising would fail. And with it, our best chance of the Middle East cleansing itself of the most malignant and dangerous regime on earth. 58

55. President Obama and the Democrats triggered a nuclear arms race in the Middle East. Saudi Arabia has long advocated a Middle East free of nuclear weapons. But President Obama’s determined effort to strike a deal with Iran – in which all the important concessions were made by us and none by the Iranians – petrified our Sunni allies in the region. Fearful of Iran, nations like Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Turkey and others are now considering and/or preparing to acquire nuclear weapons. Saudi Arabia’s former intelligence chief declared that whatever Iran gets in its nuclear deal with the U.S., “we will want the same.” Ibrahim al-Marie, a retired Saudi colonel said, “our leaders will never allow Iran to have a nuclear weapon while we don’t. We should be able to declare our nuclear weapons within weeks.” Thus, the Democrat’s effort to strike a deal with Iran has triggered a nuclear arms race in the world’s most volatile region, with the risks of nuclear war increased by the threat of terrorist groups acquiring radioactive material. 59

56. In 2016, the Democrat administration gave in to terrorists’ demands and paid a $400 million ransom to Iran. In a shady fashion, the ransom was paid in cash and flown to Iran on pallets. Weeks later, Democrats sent another $1.7 billion in cash to Iran. All of this while the negotiation of the Iranian nuclear deal was taking place. 60

57. Obama’s erasing of the “Red Line” in Syria sent an unmistakable message of weakness to the rest of the world, placing our national security in jeopardy. In 2012, Obama said Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad – who previously had been heralded as a “reformer” by Democrats – should step down and that the use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime against rebel forces would constitute crossing a “red line.” Assad crossed the red line, and Obama did nothing. The brutal Syrian leader is still in power, Syria is being torn apart by a civil war in which around a quarter of a million people have died, and around four million have fled as refugees. Syria’s neighbors have been destabilized. And an unmistakable message of weakness was sent by Obama and received by every adversary and ally of the United States: Obama and Democrat’s words and threats are worthless. 61

58. The Democrats failed to arm Syrian rebels at the time when it was most crucial. As Syria began to unravel, in 2012 then-CIA director David Petraeus developed a plan to vet Syrian rebels and train a cadre of fighters who would be supplied with weapons. The plan was supported by the U.S. defense secretary, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and many others. However, it was ultimately vetoed by the Democrat administration, for fear of becoming more deeply involved in Syria. Now, America is not only involved in Syria; we have launched military airstrikes against it and Obama eventually proposed a program to train and arm moderate Syrian rebels, though it is too late to influence events on the ground. Had Obama taken the advice that Petraeus and his other advisors gave to him five years ago, Syria would likely not have become the humanitarian and geopolitical catastrophe that it is today. 62

59. As a result of Democrats’ foreign policy failures, Libya has become a terrorist safe haven. Following the fall of the Gaddafi regime in Libya, Obama provided little to no follow-up support. Because of this, there was never an opportunity for a legitimate government to take hold, and ISIS has begun to fill the power vacuum. Because of Democrats’ lack of follow through and engagement, we closed our embassy in Syria and it has since been declared a terrorist safe haven by the State Department. No central authority exists. The Libyan state has collapsed and is being torn apart by civil war. According to the New York Times, “the violence threatens to turn Libya into a pocket of chaos destabilizing North Africa for years to come.” An intervention Obama and Democrats once hailed as a model now lies in ruins and serves only as a breeding ground for future threats to America and the rest of the world. 63

Uncle Sam Propaganda Poster60. Democrats’ negligence led to the 2012 attacks on two U.S. outposts in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans. A Senate Intelligence Committee report concluded, “The attacks were preventable, based on extensive intelligence reporting on the terrorist activity in Libya.” The CIA warned, weeks before the attacks, that Islamist militias were building a presence in Benghazi and that U.S. facilities lacked adequate defense. In fact, the U.S. Embassy in Libya made over 600 requests to Democrat leaders for more security. Democrats ignored all requests. 64

61. Democrats’ failure to effectively protect our borders has led to an unprecedented influx in drugs, sex trafficking, and criminals into the U.S. Democrats’ failure to enforce immigration policies has also led to drain on U.S. resources. In just a single month during the recent Democrat administration, the Washington Post reported that U.S. officials were caught flat-footed as more than 57,000 Central American minors illegally entered the United States, “swamping federal resources and catching the government unprepared.” Despite hundreds of warnings from border security agencies, the Democratic administration claimed, “nobody could have predicted the scale of the increase we saw this year.” Furthermore, Democrats have failed to provide adequate resources to those who protect our borders. Marine Gen. John Kelly said at a committee hearing that his command lacked the assets to seize about three-fourths of suspected drug smuggling into the United States, one major contributor to violence in the U.S. and Central America and the flow of children into America. 65
