Celebrating a REPUBLICAN President signing the Emancipation Proclamation, on this day 155 years ago

Grand Old Partisan celebrates the Republican Party’s Emancipation Proclamation going into effect on New Year’s Day 1863.  While Republicans rejoiced, Democrat politicians and newspapers denounced President Abraham Lincoln (R-IL) for freeing slaves.

Demonstrating their depravity, New York’s Gov. Horatio Seymour, who would be the 1868 Democrat presidential nominee, denounced the Emancipation Proclamation as “a proposal for the butchery of women and children.”  The Louisville Daily Democrat called it “an outrage of all constitutional law, all human justice, all Christian feeling.”

On this day in 1956, Martin Luther King voted for Eisenhower/Nixon

On this day in 1956, Martin Luther King voted for the Republican presidential ticket, Dwight Eisenhower and Richard Nixon.

Martin Luther King told Nixon of his vote during a public meeting in Ghana, where they were attending a presidential inauguration.

While campaigning for re-election, Vice President Richard Nixon declared: “Most of us will live to see the day when American boys and girls will sit, side by side, at any school – public or private – with no respect paid to the color of skin. Segregation, discrimination and prejudice have no place in America.”

The following year, Vice President Nixon helped defeat the Democrat filibuster against the GOP’s 1957 Civil Rights Act.
