Default Gotta love Louie Gohmert Representative R-TX

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) introduced a Privileged Resolution calling upon Congress to ban any political organization or party that has ever held a public position supportive of slavery or the Confederate States of America. It also calls for Speaker Nancy Pelosi to remove from the House wing of the U.S. Capitol or any House office building any item that names, symbolizes or mentions any political organization or party that supported slavery or the Confederacy.

“As outlined in the resolution, a great portion of the history of the Democratic Party is filled with racism and hatred. Since people are demanding we rid ourselves of the entities, symbols, and reminders of the repugnant aspects of our past, then the time has come for Democrats to acknowledge their party’s loathsome and bigoted past, and consider changing their party name to something that isn’t so blatantly and offensively tied to slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination, and the Ku Klux Klan," argued Rep. Gohmert.

Opponents argue this is nothing more than a ridiculous, political stunt that is going nowhere in Congress. It is a waste of time and energy when Congress should be dealing with more important issues, like COVID-19, the economy and the budget.

Yeah Democrats, Ya'll want to erase our racial/slavery history? OKAY then,,,; Let's tear down everything, including your stuff. Especially your stuff.

Forget that the War Between The States, AKA the Civil War, was over a noble cause.
