Default GOP Rep Introduced Bill to Ban Democratic Party for Past Support of Slavery

Political stunt, but made to prove a point...an EXCELLENT point...

GOP Rep Introduced Bill to Ban Democratic Party for Past Support of Slavery

Quote:
On Thursday, Republican Texas Representative Louie Gohmert introduced a House resolution that would ban the Democratic Party and any other groups that have historically supported the Confederacy or slavery in the United States.

..."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," Gohmert said in a statement.

The cosponsors of the bill include Republican Representatives Andy Biggs of Arizona, Jody Hice of Georgia, Andy Harris of Maryland and Randy Weber of Texas.

Gohmert is just the latest conservative to highlight the Democratic Party's historical ties to institutional racism.

On June 18, Republican House leader Kevin McCarthy said the Democratic Party should change its name to leave behind its historical ties to the Confederacy and segregation laws. Conservative political commentators Dinesh D'Souza and Tomi Lahren have also mentioned this part of Democratic Party history in order to slam Democrats as hypocritical for depicting Republicans as bigoted.

Considering the fact Planned Parenthood was founded by a racist who supported eugenics and created for that purpose I think Planned Parenthood should be banned as well.

Oh my, touched a nerve by reminding Democrats of their history as champions of slavery and segregation. Naturally when cancel culture is applied to its purveyors they scream about division and claim their violence is misunderstood. It's all about problem solving, nothing says dedication to problem solving and justice like a new pair of $200 Nike's.

Anytime the ignorance and hypocrisy of leftists can be exposed to leftists and real honesty is forced upon them, the foundation for problem solving has been laid. Today, the Democrat's racism is shown in their demand of complete obedience in political thought and action based on skin color . . .

That kind of Democrat thinking is what brings us these kinds of events that brutally demonstrates the "Democrat problem" is still a strong cancer in Democrat thinking. It exposes the proclamation that "Black Lives Matter" is the ultimate tool of divisive Democrat politics -- because the slogan will never be said about Mr. Tremmell:

I say expose and present the racist past and present of the Democrat Party and shove their faces in it at every opportunity.

I guess you are partly right.
If he really wanted to solve the problem of racist democrats he should call them out for what they currently do, not their past.

Right, give Democrats a free pass on their support for slavery and segregation while they use them as the basis for their campaign to destroy the Republic.

It would be easy to put a list of things the Dems have done to cause a lot of the problems.
