You guys don't like when black people blame the Republican party for slavery, why is it ok to blame Democrats? Double standards?


It seems you are in need for a lesson in history... The Republican party was formed to fight against slavery... The GOP was formed to oppose the "Kansas- Nebraska Bill of 1854." This was a bill introduced by Democrats to allow states to decide whether they wanted to keep slavery or not. The Republican party was formed to oppose this/oppose slavery.

www.history.com...

That was, and still is the main purpose of the GOP despite the fact that it has many rinos who are progressives. It was democrats who wanted to keep slavery in the south... It was democrats who funded the kkk. If democrats were still anti illegal immigration like they were until Obama, a majority of kkk members would still be democrat. White Nationalists have "socialist policies." The only difference between them and democrats is that a majority of the democrats in power are now racists against whites, or anyone else of any race who is not with them.

To blame racism or slavery on any one party or people is the height of ignorance and does nothing but continue the partisan BS. Slavery existed long before America and spans human history throughout several races and cultures. Even America's own Founding Fathers owned slaves. I don't see you guys bashing the Founding Fathers because of that fact like you do with all Democrats.


There is no "partisan bs... The democrat party was, and still is a racist party. This time they are racist against whites, or anyone else of any other race who is not a "democrat..."

Why the double standard? Why is everything you bring to the table the same old thing over and over again?

"Liberals bad, orange man good".


No double standards, it is the truth.

Not everyone in the left is the same, but as we have seen the left has been labeling anyone, of any race, who is not a democrat/left-winger as being "racists for not being left-wing."

And if it offends the majority of people in the city, "white people suck" should still be erected? Ahh i guess money and power are the only thing that matter?

Done talking to me? Maybe i am just hitting a nerve that you hold political values of racists.


Couple problems here.
1. How do you know who the majority is? It may, or may not be the loud aide of the argument. Are you from the South? I am.

2. You mention the locale, and -people in the city-. This plays right into #1. I don't think the majority is who you think they are.

I'm happy to pay reparations to anyone who has been enslaved during their life time.

And only them. The victim. The person who endured and suffered. Not their great great great grandkiddies who need a new Playstation.

Now excuse me, gotta go talk to a lawyer about suing the Romans because of that time my English ancestors were enslaved.
Then off to sue England for how they treated my Indian ancestors.

How long before people need to just get over #? Especially # they themselves have not endured?
10 years? 50 years? 100 years? Never?

Ummm, yeah, they should have known better than to let an "uppity negro" talk to them. That has a way of historically working out badly for the Democrats. Like...
  • Abraham Lincoln, the first Republican President, who freed the slaves.
  • The fact that the pre-Confederate South was solid Democrat.
  • The fact that Democrats railed against the Emancipation proclamation.
  • The fact that a Democrat, George Wallace, was the one who stood on the school steps in Selma, AL, to physically block desegregation.
Yeah, they should have known better. Probably didn't expect him to be able to speak English good, much less know about history.

I actually like the man's idea: if we want to talk reparations, we need to talk about those who actually tried to stop black folk from progressing into equality. That would, in pretty much every case, be members of the Democrat Party. So perhaps reparations might be in order... any non-African Democrat should be taxed an additional 50% for the next 10 years to make reparations to black folk.

Oh, and let's see... AOC wants a 70% tax on the wealthy, so any Democrat who is wealthy would then be taxed at... let's see, 70% plus 50% is... 120%! That should drive up down donations pretty quick!

Let's see if anyone in the DNC is willing to chew on them apples...

First you need to figure out how many people in Great Britain are related back to Julius Caesar.

And then discover if anybody else is descended from Cleopatra VII Philopator.

The Democratic Party was founded in 1824.

So who was responsible for the evils of slavery in the 48 years prior to that date?

The same people who are responsible for the evils of slavery today.

The slave traders and the slave owners.

Not their descendants.

Horse manure. Anyone with any understanding of US political history knows that the Democrats of today are the Republicans of old and visaversa.


LOLOLOL!! How convenient!

More revisionist history!

What's next?...'Everyone knows all Serial Killers were really Republicans who had only recently converted to being Democrats, AFTER their killing sprees.'

Why not just cut to the chase...'Everyone knows...whenever something bad happens, we Democrats will revise history to make it look like the Republicans did it because the reality of the true history is very inconvenient and too much for us to bear.'

I know what he means (as a student of history myself)- I just glanced at the end of this thread to see if anyone had picked up on this point yet.

To be exact;
Slavery and the foundation of the Ku-Klux-Klan were centred upon southern conservatives.
From Lincoln's time right up to the time of LBJ, southern conservatives were calling themselves Democrats. I think Governor Wallace may be partly responsible for breaking that connection.
Now southern conservatives are calling themselves Republicans.
So the line that "Democrats can be blamed for slavery", when applied to modern Democrats, is a bit of verbal legerdemain which ignores the label-switching history.

Don't worry about what some idiots say. No democrat living today ever wore that mantle and the platform of the party has completely reversed from what it was in the 1800s .
Look the president is still running against Hillary Clinton so we know they all drive the car looking in the rear view mirror.
Keep looking ahead and living your life. You know who and what you are.

Nothing

I said the slave buyers and sellers are responsible

Do you disagree for some reason? Or do you not do reading and comprehension very well?

The question asked was “who was responsible?”

And my answer is 100% correct

If you’ve ever laughed during the movie “Blazing Saddles”then you have to pay.


Hell not laughing at every scene needs to be the standard. Scale begins, if you had a laugh Every scene = U Must Be A Bigot.

Laugh at the things happening to the black sheriff = U Must Be A Racist.

/s

That was one funny movie and I heard Richard Pryor tell a joke about why he didn't get the role and that he wanted to play the Sheriff. I don't recall the reason but he made it sound like it was in the cards not to do it.

Maybe because it was the democrat party that split off and created the confederacy, or the fact that open borders and sanctuary cities allow slavery survive today in the US at record levels. 2001-2009.state.gov...


One thing that must be considered is the fact that Abraham Lincoln was a Republican and VP Andrew Johnson was a Democrat (a clear example of "pre 14th Amendment" political correctness).

Lincoln instituted the "40 Arces and a Mule" program.

When Lincoln died suddenly, Johnson became President and revoked the program.

Hmmmm.


Johnson was a Republican from a Republican stronghold they say.

When TN left the Union that area stayed out of the voting and the war like Western now West VA. The people who settled that area were dirt poor and were scratching out a living in the places they could on those Hills and Mtns and didn't get political. Well, except about that moonshine that caused one of our Pres to send the Army over the compliance with stamps on whiskey they had disagreed.

Sweathog here...

Then "splain" me sumthin' here, oh Great Denier of history. Why then is the south predominantly Democratic today, hmmmm???? After all, the south undeniably favored slavery when the north was trying to abolish it. Mason-Dixon line, anyone?

So why, when all these evil "Republican" slave owners in the south suddenly decided they wanted to switch and become "Democrats" (as you and others suggest), why didn't all the southerners, who you allege were so outraged by slavery, suddenly defect, en-mass, to the Republican party???? In other words, why isn't the south predominantly Republican today?

Or, was this just another evil scheme by those dastardly "Republicans", to brainwash all their constituents they were suddenly now Democrats and on the correct side of the moral compass????

Oh how quickly your party's arguments fall apart!

ETA - You can't have it both ways! Oh wait...that's exactly the party mantra of the left, isn't it?..."We get to have it both ways!"

LOL...you're a hoot!!

And, of course, today's southern conservatives are nothing like the southern conservatives of those days. Much like today's progressives are nothing much like the progressives of those days.

It's simply a matter of "my side is the morally good one, so of course, if they were morally good back then, they would have been on my side". It's the same impulse that claims Jesus would have approved of everything they do, too, up to and including abortion.
