Garland Gregory Posted January 4, 2021 Report Share Posted January 4, 2021 From Garland Gregory ("THE NEW BREED REPARATIONS SANCTUARY) The following is knowledge/understanding taught in the classroom (where media news falls short): Chaos in the Republican Party?: Here Is The Sequence To An Unholy Marriage The 1800's northern slavery abolitionist movement was not well received by the Republican Party. However, southern Democrats seceded out of fear that Lincoln and Republicans would acquiesce. Lincoln and Republicans fought a civil war to save the union, not to free the southern black slaves. Northern Republicans won the war as Lincoln's growing conscience led him to issue emancipation. Dixie Democrats vowed to protect “their way of life”; southern blacks trusted/joined Republican Party. Republican abandonment led blacks to switch to the “working-class” Democratic Party under FDR. Dixie Democrats were invited to join Republican Party as backlash to LBJ and civil rights laws. THE “UNHOLY MARRIAGE”: working-class social conservatives joining economic conservatives. Socially conservative former “Dixie-Dems” (galvanized by Trump) now dominate Republican Party. Economic conservatism proves no match against worldview / religion-based social conservatism. Social conservatism argues that female gender, darker skin, same-sex attraction are abominations. The principles of democracy say “live and let live”, “do unto others...”, “equality”, “rights”, etc. People from ALL racial and cultural groups disregard / violate democratic and “spiritual” principles.
