Democrats’ racist past is about to bite them after something unbelievable happened
Democrats love to claim that Republicans are racist.
But a short history lesson proves that isn’t true.
And now the Democrats’ racist past is about to bite them after something unbelievable happened.
For years, Democrats have tried to claim that the evils of racism lie on the shoulders of Republicans.
This is despite the fact that it was Democrats who supported slavery and opposed the Civil Rights Act.
Democrats today try to claim that the Democrat and Republican Party actually flipped after the passage of the Civil Rights Act, which is a ridiculous claim not actually based in fact.
The facts of the matter are that during the period that the parties supposedly flipped, there was only one Democrat in the House, Albert Watson, and one in the Senate, Strom Thurmond, who switched to the Republican Party.
Democrats ignore this fact, and instead try to claim that it was a much larger “switch” that occurred.
This is a desperate attempt to hide the racist origins of the Democrat Party.
But it won’t work after Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert introduced a privileged resolution that calls upon Congress to ban the Democratic Party for supporting slavery and the Confederate States of America.
A privileged resolution allows any congressman to “supersede or interrupt other matters that might be called up or pending before the House,” meaning that they will have to hear this bill.
Reps. Andy Biggs, Jody Hice, Rand Weber, and Andy Harris cosponsored the resolution.
In the resolution, Gohmert lists dozens of examples of the Democrat Party’s historic racism.
He specifically cites their Party platforms of 1840, 1844, 1848, 1852, and 1856, which stated “that all efforts of the abolitionists, or others, made to induce Congress to interfere with questions of slavery . . . are calculated to lead to the most alarming and dangerous consequences; and that all such efforts have an inevitable tendency to diminish the happiness of the people and endanger the stability and permanency of the Union, and ought not to be countenanced by any friend of our political institutions.”
Gohmert also cites the pro-slavery Party platform of 1856, which specifically allows new states to the Union to practice slavery.
The resolution also cites that no Democrat in Congress supported the 14th Amendment to give full citizenship to freed slaves.
He also cites former Democrat Sen. Robert Byrd, who was a known recruiter for the KKK, who led the Democrats in opposition of civil rights for African Americans.
Byrd is highly revered in the Democrat Party today, even being pictured on multiple occasions with Hillary Clinton.
The Democrat-controlled House won’t allow Gohmert’s resolution to pass.
But it exposes the racist history of the Democrat Party in a very bold way.
