There is no doubt that there were times throughout American history that were not some of America’s finest moments.
I recently learned of America’s only extermination order in 1838, Executive Order 44, issued by Governor, Lilburn Boggs of Missouri, a Democrat.
Boggs precipitously directed that “the Mormons must be treated as enemies, and must be exterminated or driven from the State if necessary for the public peace— their atrocities are beyond all description.” [Wiki]
There were several incarnations of the Klu Klux Klan, which was comprised of white, southern, segregationist Democrats. The first KKK, founded in 1865, was violent and their main goal was to suppress the vote.
When Democrats rant about some states having a history of suppressing the vote, they forget to mention they were the party that did it.
The second and third incarnations of the KKK, also Democrats, went national, it was no longer a “southern entity.” They continued to be violent. The second flourished in the 1920’s and engaged in cross burnings and far worse. The third emerged after World War II and presented the main opposition to the Civil Rights Movement and progress among minorities.
The KKK made people vote Democratic.[Wiki]
Senator Byrd, a Democrat, who was recently eulogized by President Obama, ran his local KKK. [Daily Caller] Many others who were members changed with the political scene.
Who can forget the infamous, Margaret Sanger, Founder of Planned Parenthood, who was much adored by Progressives and who was very comfortable leading the charge of the genocide of the black community. More of her thoughts here….[Wiki]
We have faced similar horrors in our lifetime.
John Holdren,whom Barack Obama has appointed Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, Assistant to the President for Science and Technology, and Co-Chair of the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology — informally known as the United States’ Science Czar says: Forced abortions and mass sterilization are needed to save the planet.

Cass Sunstein wrote the paper “Lives, Life-Years, and Willingness to Pay” in the long-forgotten days of July 2003, when he was a mere 48-years-old.
In his 2003 paper, Sunstein criticized the government for protecting human life as though all lives were equal. Specifically, Sunstein said the government’s method for determining who received medical treatment should be changed; he suggested replacing the “value of a statistical life” (VSL) – which viewed all lives as equal – young people to receive medical care, if necessary while allowing older people to die, because they will live longer after the procedure is completed.

And who could forget, Ezekiel Emanuel, Obama’s health advisor. Betsy McCaughey explains his “Complete Lives System” here, in the WSJ.
No list is complete without Kathleen Sebelieus, our modern day Queen of Death, who believes in abortion up until the moment of birth without limitation. Back in March, she said that the reduction in births will compensate for the cost of the contraception mandate. [CNS News]

Notice a pattern among Democrats here? It is long overdue that the shroud of hypocrisy be unveiled. All these evil acts are done in the name of the “public good.” Doesn’t feel so good to me. How’s about you?
