As long as we're banning things that have a history of racism, the Democrat party must be banned.

We all know the history. The Democrat party was the party of slavery. They fought against the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments.

The Democrats did their best to sabotage the reconstruction era. They are the party of the KKK. The Democrats are the party of Jim Crow and segregation (something they're still trying to bring back.)

I'm sure some folks here can add more to the list of Democrat atrocities, but you get the picture. The Democrats have a long history of racism.

I know someone will be along with the ole party switch myth, unable to list any meaningful number of known racists that actually switched parties. But that's completely irrelevant. Today doesn't matter, it's the past that matters. The Confederate flag, for example, is mostly flown by people who simply want to celebrate their heritage. But it has that past, so it must be banned, or so we've been told.

So do you have the courage of your convictions, social justice warriors? Will you call to ban the Democrat party?

(And before anyone tries to derail the thread with their whataboutisms, sure ban the Republican party too for wanting "racist" things like school choice, legal immigration, and voter ID. I've long said I despise our two-party system anyway. I'd be perfectly fine with blowing up [figuratively] both major parties right now and starting over from the ground up.)

As you said, since it’s the past that matters, no argument will stand up.

That's OK. They're just itching to declare themselves the United Soviet Socialist Wokers Party anyhow. (not a typo)

Ah, thanks. I get so used to seeing people drop the apostrophe that I pick up bad habits although we could quibble over whether or not we're talking one Woker or a collective of them which would move the apostrophe depending.

The problem is that the democrat party consists of intel agencies and media outlets so the outlawing and banning needs to be thorough so that the cockroaches don't just regroup for further assaults.

In the spirit of Escape from New York.

Round them all up and send them to Manhattan. Then blow the bridges, and surround it with walls.

Then the rest of us can get on with our lives peacefully.

They're free to form a new party if they want. Honestly I think it would be beneficial for the black community to band together and form a minority party instead of voting Democrat. Then Libertarians could break off from the Republicans en masse without fear of handing elections to the anti-freedom Democrats. It would be the beginning of the end for the two-party monopoly.

No matter what happens afterward though, I think the Left should have the courage of their convictions and call for the banning of the Democrat party. Unless they're not serious about banning things with racist history, in which case this whole "movement" is all about pandering for votes (which we all know it is.)

Yes, that's right. Just conviently dismiss the idea that racists and segregationists have existed side by side in political parties since they were established.

Dismiss the fact that slave owners were instrumental in the founding of the nation and were compromised with by those who wanted to do away with slavery. They needed to bargain with slave owners in order to get it written and established. Ignore that those in hopes of abolishing slavery thought that over time it would just go away. How wrong they were.

Dismiss that when the civil war was fought that there were racists everywhere. This idea that it was one party that was totally for it while the other was totally against it is a lie.

Dismiss that the power struggles within both parties, and any third parties that came around over how to present themselves to the voters caused the morphing of racists to move to the party that was most lenient towards racism. Ignore that.

So yes, the ''label'' that pro-slavery most strongly hid under at that time was the Democrats. And yes, the KKK and all the rest sure. But this meme that is being pushed by conservatives today that the Democrat Party of today is the same party it was back then is revisionist. But just dismiss that. I won't.

As far as banning the Democrat Party, I say yeah, that's a good idea. Dissolve it. Liberals should abandon that party and form another one, one that is liberal and not controlled by conservatives hiding under the Donkey Banner. Yeah, let that party succumb to it's own falseness, it's own two faced incompetence.

We have a president that has fooled half the nation into believing he is the way to fix our nation. Oh, yeah, conservatives have had their sights on fixing the nation for ages but it has taken a goofball like Trump to convince all those true patriots that he is the best that conservatism has to offer.

And at this point it appears that the best that the Democrat Party can come up with to present a better leader than the worst president we have ever had is who? Joe Biden, a dribbling stammering old man who should be sitting at home enjoying his family in his dottering old age.

So yes, I agree, the liberals should dump the Democrat Party, They are failures.

That's an awfully long-winded way to not address what you quoted. I'm impressed.

Also, bonus points for being the first person to bring Trump into a topic that has nothing to do with him. It must suck having him run your life 24/7.

I think they are more in line with Mao's purge. Think about it. Erase the past tearing down statues, public shamming.Social media cancellations.

whoa there thunder, you are close to understanding why the destruction of civil war artifacts is idiotic. But keep going, I'd like to see you reach that epiphany on your own.

I always said we should round up all the democrats around Chicago and give them someplace like Elmwood Park or something. Build a wall around it and say, "Here, this is yours. Do whatever you want with it. We will come by and check on you once in a while."

Then never go back.

The Democrat Party is the ultimate/original still-standing monument to the Confederacy, Slavery and the KKK.

Makes sense to topple it like Robert E. Lee.

Yes, I can see that five short paragraphs might seem ''long winded'' to a person who appears to be firmly entrenched in the ''Dems bad'' mind set. That might also explain an apparent disability to comprehend how the quoted topic was addressed.

Oh, and thanks. Thought as the arbiter of bonus standards for the prize, I balk and your not understanding that Trump is at the heart of all these ''political '' threads. He himself has pointed out that he is the only one who can save America and hence his messianic presence pervades every inch of today's American political life.

Are you serious?

We're going to end up with another civil war because the first civil war offended people too much!

Whoa there Mr. Dude. Can you point to anywhere on this site or any of it's forums where I have defended and agreed with the tearing down of statues???? NO, I will save you the time to back up your simplistic assumption here. I haven't.

I see the taking down of statues to be at best a childish expression of hatred. I would not be opposed however to the erecting of statues depicting the children of slavery that so many of those men of statuesque fame fought to keep in chains.
