First Black Republican Woman In Congress Tears Up Planned Parenthood


love

You know, some things are just too amazing. I decided to investigate just a little bit, to determine whether the democratic party was really the party of black people. Where does one start? I figured I’d research what party the first black Congressmen came from. Well, guess what? The first three black Senators all came from the same party, and it wasn’t the “Wrong” party.  You won’t believe how many of the first black Congressmen in the House of Representatives were Republicans!

Senate

Hiram Revels – Republican, sent to the U.S. Senate in 1870 by the Mississippi State Legislature.

Blanche K. Bruce – Republican, elected to the U.S. Senate in 1874 by the Mississippi state legislature.

Edward Brooke – Republican, the first African American elected to the Senate by popular vote (Massachusetts) – in 1966 – after the Civil Rights movement!

House of Representatives

Joseph Rainey – Republican, South Carolina’s first elected black representative, Dec. 12, 1870

Jefferson F. Long – Republican, Georgia, elected to House of Representatives Jan. 16, 1871

Robert C. De Large – Republican, South Carolina, took office in House of Representatives Mar. 4, 1871

Robert B. Elliott – Republican, South Carolina, took office in House of Representatives Mar. 4, 1871

In fact, all 15 of the first black leaders to take office in the U.S. House of Representatives were Republicans!

Do you see a pattern here?

Below is the link where Congresswoman Mia Love (Republican), the first black Republican woman elected to Congress, tears up as she talks about the scourge of abortion on our land, and the need to defund Planned Parenthood.

Oh, and yes, my title is a bit of a play on words, isn’t it?  Tears up?

    • I have to admit, I was pretty shocked to find this out also. These days, the “Black History Revisionists” like to say that the Republican party back then were the liberals, but that’s clearly nonsense, because President Lincoln was a Republican, and he was about as far from being a liberal as a mouse is from the moon!
