Considering the current logic of removing history relating to slavery in America, why isn't the Democratic Party banned as well? Think about it, they are solely responsible for our horrible post Civil War race relations and singlehandedly prevented African Americans from advancing in society.

Pro Slavery
Pro segregation
Pro Jim Crow Law
Against the Civil Rights Act of 1965
Created the KKK
Created the welfare state

If it weren't for Abraham Lincoln and the Republicans, the South would have secede and there would have been perpetual slavery like they wanted. Just some food for thought.

It wouldn't hurt for you to brush up on your history and learn how parties changed sides after the civil rights act. So it's the GOP that should be gone because of their history.


The GOP should be gone because of their history? The history of opposing slavery, desegregation, equal rights for African Americans? The Democrats fought every single civil rights bill in Congress then magically "switch sides" after voting against the civil right act of 1965. Of course you would fall for that excuse for you to ignore their abhorrent history. You need to brush up on history and accept it.

no. no, that's not "food for thought." it's just trite idiocy. First of all, it's incredibly disingenuous to pretend like the modern day Democratic Party has any relation or resemblance to the Democratic party of those times. You know full well that the parties of that time have no resemblance to their respective parties now, and if anything they resemble their opposites.
Secondly, comparing that stuff to people actually taking up arms against their own country is... well, stupid. Very stupid.
Just stop. Stop.being willfully stupid.


I never said the modern Democratic Party, I talking about the history of the Democratic Party that you choose to ignore. Modern Democrats have shifted even more left to supporting socialism and Marxism. More destructive ideologies for America that they seem to gravitate towards. Read my post and take it in context instead of hyperventilating.

No they didn't. The Democrats changed their target demographics, they did not change their ideology of statism/leftism.

It took an entire generation of voters for the south so stop voting for the Democrats that filibustered the Civil Rights act. The Southern Strategy is a sham.

Strom Thurmond switched from a Democrat to a Republican in 1948 and the whole party went with him.

Democrats of 100 years ago aren't the same Democrats of today. Democrats stopped being racist and that was too much for Republicans to handle.

Remember too, the Democrats in the early and mid 1960s were losing voters like crazy because of the Viet Nam policies, and because of the rioting by Democrat areas.

They had to get a new source of votes.

And of course, they failed and Nixon got elected in 1968.

You have the whole list don't you ?

You should put it up so people don't question your integrity or anything.

Show the policy changes and legislation(s) that support the claim as well.

Easy
1. Support for slavery was from the democrat party. In order to control the south after the civil war the democrats founded the KKK in order to keep Blacks and republicans from gaining any power. Now the people who support them call themselves progressives.

20. Segregation was supported by the democrat party. Woodrow Wilson (dem) re-segregated the US govt when he was elected. Read why he did that. It sounds like the today's progressives talking.

Back in the nineteen-sumpties, the Democratic Party became a pillar of political ethics and never exploited black Americans or women again.

D'uh.

Yes, and the other 18 Democratic senators that filibustered the CRA stayed Democrats. And the Democrats controlled the 'Southern Bloc' states until the late-80s to mid-90s.

Yes they are. They just changed tactics and target demographics.

And what about the Republicans? They're 100% the same as they've always been?

Hmmm?

Pence and Ted Cruz support Dominion theology so we had better get rid of the Republican Party.

I think ALL political parties should be banned!

Imagine voting for a PERSON instead of a party!

WOW!

They'd actually have to run on issues and not talking points!

Yeah. I agree. Both Republicans and Democrats and their views of how the country should be run has ran their course. Something else entirely needs to be come up with.


you would love anarchy and a civil war in America......so it will come as a shock to you, that republicans and democrats in congress and around the 50 states are working together to craft solutions to our problems.....that is the REAL FEAR of people like you....that we work together, and ignore you to the point that you become the proverbial "fart in the wind"

Hmmm ... did he sign an Act from Congress? So ... we have to take down the Statues of all 536 people involved?

Also ... where are the Carter statues you want to take down? I'd hate to think you're making a specious argument.

Absolutely.
They (All members who voted in favor) should all have their statues trashed.
Excusing Racism.



Also ... where are the Carter statues you want to take down?

A simple Carter/Statue Google search should give you a wide assortment of candidates in need of a good cleansing demolition.

Well, I'm not going to fight with you about the Congresses support of racism. Any Congress.

Yes, I know how to use Google ... but you must have some statues in mind, right? I mean, you're talking about something specific, not just trying to make a specious point ...

Right? I mean ... there's one at the Georgia State Capitol ... there's a "Smiling Peanut" in Plains ... where are the others?

I'm not even sure there's one at the Carter Center ....
