No, Republicans Do Not Care About Babies, They Care About Maintaining A White Majority…


So here is the deal, the Trump night­mare pres­i­den­cy was made pos­si­ble because of racist poli­cies and ten­den­cies that have exist­ed in the GOP, for arguably hun­dreds of years.
Yes, the Democratic par­ty was the par­ty of the KKK, but please nev­er lose sight of the changes which occurred, which saw a Southern Democrat, Lyndon Baines Johnson, sign two land­mark pieces of leg­is­la­tion, (a) the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and (b)the Voting Rights Act of 1965 into law giv­ing African Americans auton­o­my and dignity.
Yes, Abraham Lincoln signed the 13th Amendment the Emancaptation Declaration into law, but Lincoln had no moral con­vic­tion about free­ing the slaves.
Evidence of that may be found in the link below.


Additionally, the 1877 com­pro­mise which saw Republican Rutherford B Hayes ascend to the Presidency was one of the most treach­er­ous acts ever embarked on in America.
Republicans gave every­thing away to the Democrats in the south, when they agreed that Hayes, who was los­ing the elec­tion, become the pres­i­dent if he removed US troops from the South.
Hayes removal of Federal troops from the South effec­tive­ly end­ed Reconstruction which was empow­er­ing Blacks and had result­ed in 22 black men get­ting elect­ed to the US House of Representatives and two to the US Senate.
Out of that treach­ery came Jim Crow.
Jim crow laws result­ed in an almost worse form of slav­ery for the recent­ly freed enslaved people.
Leapfrog to the present day.

Republican poli­cies are total­ly and com­pre­hen­sive­ly anti­thet­i­cal to the very exis­tence of African American’s.
What’s good for us they fight; what’s bad for us they support.
On police abuse, the envi­ron­ment, jobs, hous­ing, edu­ca­tion, and every oth­er area of our lives, Republicans fight against our interest.
The fight against abor­tion is a fight that Republicans cham­pi­on because white women do not have enough white babies.
Iowa Republican con­gress­man said; we can­not main­tain our civ­i­liza­tion with oth­er peo­ple’s babies”.
On the one hand, the fight to emp­ty out America of black and brown peo­ple and, on the oth­er hand, stop abor­tions is geared sole­ly on build­ing up whites numer­i­cal­ly to main­tain white suprema­cy and white hegemony.

No polit­i­cal par­ty can claim to rep­re­sent God by fight­ing against abor­tions on the one hand but fights vig­or­ous­ly to keep basic sus­te­nance out of the mouths of babies after they are born.
Most of the so-called white evan­gel­i­cals who claim that Donald Trump was sent by God will give every­thing they have to pro­tect a dog, but would do noth­ing to help a black baby or black per­son in need.
As Christians, many of us refuse to par­tic­i­pate in our lives, so we become vic­tims of our own disengagement.
Neither polit­i­cal par­ty is about God, but being about God is not what we say; it is about what we do.
What would Jesus do?
Feed the hun­gry, heal the sick, com­fort the wid­ow, vis­it the incarcerated.
No, nei­ther par­ty is Godly, but we must live with them, and as they are, we must choose the par­ty that is clos­er to those basic standards.
