I don't think we should be for Democrats changing the party name. They have destroyed their brand work their love of Marxist ideas so it's to our advantage that they remain known as Democrats.

The democrats certainly have a deplorable history of racism but the GOP seems to have picked up the ball and run with it quite successfully. Strange how racist culture seems to switch political affiliation. Watching trumps 4th speech and the attending crowd...white as rice.

ok, now show me a few pics of isolated minorities to prove me wrong...

btw, nice circle jerk...be sure to wash your hands when finished.

The majority of Americans are white

The majority of people who attended Obama rallies were white.

By your reckoning, that means Obama is a racist

Give me one story where a Republican news anchor had a guest that called a black man a negro that doesn't read while the host and other guests laughed about it. I'll post one from a democrat doing that, you follow up with a Republican doing it. If I can post more, then you can admit that the democrats are still the party of racists like the rest of us already know.

I'm pretty sure black politicians in the Democrat party are trying to promote slavery.

Well Peeple you'd probably find a few people on that butcher's forum who also dabble in vegan recipes and would be able to answer your question. I get what you're saying and all, but just because you assume these things doesn't mean it will be true.

I'd call it American Socialist Party... A.S.P for short. Because they are snakes


But in all seriousness, they are running on more and more of a socialist idea, and are NOT democratic in any way now (2016 fix of DNC vote confirms this.) The name SHOULD be Unites States Socialist Party. With U.S.S.P as an acronym. Obviously that wouldn't fly because of the obvious Soviet mis-characterization; no one would take the party seriously. But that IS what they are now.

Unless Old Guard Democrats crush the Socialist uprising in their ranks, they can kiss the nice democratic ideas good bye. They youth have been taught to rage and reject, so once they gain control the party will quickly move to socialism. They'll call it the Democratic-Socialist Party, to give the illusion of a compromise happening between the two.

I doubt they'd have the courage to be honest enough to change the name. They are enslaved to the comfort that their illusions and double-speak bring them. They depend on the old guard protecting them until the youth has grown JUST strong enough to backstab them and crawl out from under their carcass playing the victim.

Compare the party demographics, then tell me who the racists are....

news.gallup.com...

btw, I'm not a democrat. I've been a libertarian since my pal Gov. Gary Johnson turned 420.

At one time I thought the T party might be a viable alternative until the GOP took it over and ruined a fantastic grass roots movement.

Or American Socialist Segregation (A.S.S.) which would shorten their names from donkeys to ass. Both are quite fitting though.

This does raise a good point.

Why can the democratic party be forgiven for its history of racism? Recent history I might add...

But that flag of ours is nothing but a symbol of hate.....

Why cant the flag also represent the changes the country had went through to get to where we are today?
We have had a black president.
Doesnt the flag represent that history as well?

So, having more ‘white’ supporters and members makes it ‘racist’?

Right?

Because ‘white people’ are racist, right?

Even though ‘white people’ ended slavery. (Maybe that’s why you hate them?)

The vast majority of the libertarian party are white people

The majority of their supporters are also white people

What does that tell you?

You make a really good point. A fair point as well. This should be said every time an issue comes up pushing to rename or erase historical places or buildings because of "feels."

If they actually do it "rename." You know they will be coming after the Republican name then because the KKK and all switched sides at one point, but that would probably be a good thing. We have been stuck in a two party system for far too long and some name changes would shake things up a little.

They won’t because it is all a lie, mostly a fake justification to implement Year Zero, where only their institutions remain in the dust. It’s old communist nonsense.

I don't hate anyone. I don't even hate trump; in fact I think his dorky twitter world is very entertaining, as I do you and your silly hyperbole.

Their voter base is so brainwashed and unable to comprehend critical thinking that even if they did change the name their base wouldn't believe it. They would say its a ploy to divide their party.

The democrats are already divided; As is the GOP.

I would like to see another 3rd party take shape and despite being a Libertarian; they have some serious internal issues and can't mount a serious united party.

You are asking for a level of self reflection and honesty that isn’t inherent in the thought process. To demonize “the enemy” is easy enough. The long look in the mirror just isn’t going to happen anytime soon. But when it does the jackass will be ditched for the sloth. So slow to help that it is useless.

You don't have to be a democrat or a republican to see who the real racist party is. Demographics mean nothing. All that symbolizes is that blacks flow towards free stuff more than working, but Trump is slowly changing that. He's got more black support than any republican president in the recent past.

Well, that doesn't sound to racist...

Ask that on facebook or twitter if it's a "serious question" and not just fishing for praise and s&f here at your local right wing echo chamber.
If you do keep us updated should be entertaining.

Not all of us (me included) uses Facebook or Twitter. But, more to the point of your post, are you suggesting that ATS isn't a valid platform to pose an idea such as this? Why do you even log onto ATS?
