Did the Democratic party always hate white people, cops, and America? If not when did it begin?
Sorry I'm not American but keep updated with American culture, news, and politics and have been keeping updated about them for a few decades. I don't recall the Democratic party being as anti-white, anti-cop, and anti-American as they are now. What happened? Now I read that the official DNC Twitter account said Trump's Fourth of July celebration at Mount Rushmore is white supremacy. The Democratic party wants to defund all of police because a few cops did wrong and wants to remove statues of Washington and Lincoln. White people are constantly vilified and scapegoated too such as according to Joe Biden's campaign speech transcripts that I have read. Is this a new cultural movement in USA that Democrats ars capitalizing on for political gain? It's fascinating.

PROBABLY AFTER THE CIVIL RIGHTS ACTS OF THE 60'S AND LBJ'S GREAT SOCIETY

When you think about racial equality and civil rights, which political party comes to mind?
The Republicans? Or, the Democrats?
Most people would probably say the Democrats.
But this answer is incorrect.
Since its founding in 1829, the Democratic Party has fought against every major civil
rights initiative, and has a long history of discrimination.
The Democratic Party defended slavery, started the Civil War, opposed Reconstruction, founded the Ku Klux Klan, imposed segregation, perpetrated lynching's, and fought against the civil rights acts of the 1950s and 1960s.
In contrast, the Republican Party was founded in 1854 as an anti-slavery party.
Its mission was to stop the spread of slavery into the new western territories with the
aim of abolishing it entirely.
This effort, however, was dealt a major blow by the Supreme Court.
In the 1857 case Dred Scott v. Sanford, the court ruled that slaves aren’t citizens;
The seven justices who voted in favor of slavery?
The two justices who dissented?
The slavery question was, of course, ultimately resolved by a bloody civil war.
The commander-in-chief during that war was the first Republican President, Abraham Lincoln – the man who freed the slaves.
Six days after the Confederate army surrendered, John Wilkes Booth, a Democrat,
assassinated President Lincoln.
Lincoln’s vice president, a Democrat named Andrew Johnson, assumed the presidency.
But Johnson adamantly opposed Lincoln’s plan to integrate the newly freed slaves
into the South’s economic and social order.
Johnson and the Democratic Party were unified in their opposition to the 13th Amendment, which abolished slavery; the 14th Amendment, which gave blacks citizenship; and the 15th Amendment, which gave blacks the vote.
All three passed only because of universal Republican support.
During the era of Reconstruction, federal troops stationed in the south helped secure
rights for the newly freed slaves.
and 22 black Republicans served in the US Congress by 1900.
The Democrats did not elect a black man to Congress until 1935.
But after Reconstruction ended, when the federal troops went home, Democrats roared back into power in the South.
They quickly reestablished white supremacy across the Hundreds of black men were elected to southern state legislatures as Republicans,
region with measures like black codes – laws that restricted the ability of blacks to own property and run businesses.
And they imposed poll taxes and literacy tests, used to subvert the black citizen’s
right to vote.
And how was all of this enforced?
By terror -- much of it instigated by the Ku Klux Klan, founded by a Democrat, Nathan Bedford Forrest. As historian Eric Foner - himself a Democrat - notes:
“In effect, the Klan was a military force serving the interests of the Democratic Party.
President Woodrow Wilson, a Democrat, shared many views with the Klan.
He re-segregated many federal agencies, and even screened the first movie ever played at the White House - the racist film “The Birth of a Nation,” originally entitled
A few decades later, the only serious congressional opposition to the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964 came from Democrats.
Eighty percent of Republicans in Congress supported the bill.
Less than 70 percent of Democrats did.
Democratic senators filibustered the bill for 75 days, until Republicans mustered the
few extra votes needed to break the logjam.
And when all of their efforts to enslave blacks, keep them enslaved, and then keep them from voting had failed, the Democrats came up with a new strategy: If black people are going to vote, they might as well vote for Democrats.
As President Lyndon Johnson was purported to have said about the Civil Rights Act,
“I’ll have them n*****s voting Democrat for two hundred years.
So now, the Democratic Party prospers on the votes of the very people it has spent much of its history oppressing.
Democrats falsely claim that the Republican Party is the villain, when in reality it’s
the failed policies of the Democratic Party that have kept blacks down.
Massive government welfare has decimated the black family.
Opposition to school choice has kept them trapped in failing schools.
Politically correct policing has left black neighborhoods defenseless against violent crime.
So, when you think about racial equality and civil rights, which political party should come to mind?

I would guess around the same time you started smoking 🦄💩. If we hated America we would vote Republican. If we hated cops we would stockpile weapons like regressives do.

President Trump's outspoken, spontaneous ways have encouraged fringe and radical elements, such as a hateful vein in the Democrats.

It began when Republicans eliminated every other possible way to save the lives of the Americans who would be dead otherwise. Democrats do whatever it takes to save American lives, so that they do not die. Republicans call that anti-American; perhaps they believe that death is pro-American.

It began under Obama. He used the government to empower radical black supremacy groups. Obama is friends with black supremacists like Jeremiah Wright and Louis Farrakhan. When Biden steps down and let's his black VP be president, such targeting of white people will continue and worsen.
