During a recent segment on his radio show Al Sharpton told his audience that Republicans see blacks like Hitler saw the Jews.
Really, Al… Nazis?
Obviously, Sharpton does not have much of a grasp on history. When the Civil War ended, and after Republican President Abraham Lincoln liberated the slaves in the south, Democrats initiated Jim Crow laws to punish blacks. Democrats discriminated against blacks. In fact, the KKK, was founded as the the terrorist wing of the Democrat Party.
The Ku Klux Klan assassinated many Republicans including Republican Representative James M. Hinds (December 5, 1833—October 22, 1868) of Little Rock. Hinds represented Arkansas in the United States Congress from June 24, 1868 through October 22, 1868.
AL SHARPTON (36:58): It seems like they [Republicans] act as though, some wiping out of people, some of the right-wing, is all right, it’s not all right to do to any innocent people. If you had war and people that’s one thing, but to wipe out innocent people just because of who they are like what was done in Hitler’s Germany or what was done to Native Americans is not justifiable.
ELINOR TATUM (PUBLISHER, NEW YORK AMSTERDAM NEWS): You know but Rev, I think and what is similar to Hitler’s Germany is that Hitler did not believe those people to be human.
