Congressman Introduces Bill That Would Have Democrat Party Change Name Or 'Be Barred From Participation In The House' Due To Past Support Of Slavery, Confederacy
“The time has come for Democrats to acknowledge their party’s loathsome and bigoted past, and consider changing their party name to something that isn’t so blatantly and offensively tied to slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination, and the KKK. #CancelDemocrats”
Well, it does make sense!

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) introduced a bill Thursday on the floor of the House of Representatives that would ban the Democratic Party due to the party's history of having supported slavery and the Confederacy, saying "that is the standard to which they are holding everyone else, so the name change needs to occur."

"Whereas on June 18, 2020, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ordered the removal from the capital portraits of four previous speakers of the House who served in the Confederacy, saying that these portraits 'set back our nation's work to confront and combat bigotry,'" Gohmert said. "The men depicted in the portraits were Democrat Robert M.T. Hunter, Democrat Howell Cobb, Democrat James L. Orr, and Democrat Charles F. Crisp."

"Resolved that the speaker of the House of Representatives shall remove any item that named symbolizes or mentions any political organization or party that has ever held a public position that supported slavery or the Confederacy from any area within the House wing of the Capitol or any House office building and shall donate such item or symbol to the Library of Congress, and two, that any political organization or party that has ever held a public position that supported slavery of the Confederacy shall either change its name or be barred from participation in the House of Representatives," Gohmert concluded. "With that, I would yield back."

"As outlined in the resolution, a great portion of the history of the Democratic Party is filled with racism and hatred," Gohmert said in a statement. "Since people are demanding we rid ourselves of the entities, symbols, and reminders of the repugnant aspects of our past, then the time has come for Democrats to acknowledge their party's loathsome and bigoted past, and consider changing their party name to something that isn't so blatantly and offensively tied to slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination, and the Ku Klux Klan."

"As the country watches violent Leftists burn our cities, tear down our statues and call upon every school, military base and city street to be renamed, it is important to note that past atrocities these radicals claim to be so violently offensive were largely committed by members in good standing of the Democratic Party," Gohmert continued. "Whether it be supporting the most vile forms of racism or actively working against Civil Rights legislation, Democrats in this country perpetuated these abhorrent forms of discrimination and violence practically since their party's inception."

Gohmert concluded, "To avoid triggering innocent bystanders by the racist past of the Democratic Party, I would suggest they change their name. That is the standard to which they are holding everyone else, so the name change needs to occur."

If that is suddenly going to bother Democrats, maybe we should all think about getting over negative things that happened in the distant past; focus on the positive, and move forward.

But if we want to keep at it, we can ask “If the confederate flag is the flag of traitors, why isn’t the Democratic Party the party of traitors?“

Or again, we can encourage each other to focus on shit that matters.

the only reason was to point out the dems "cancel culture" hypocrisy and remind people the democrats were against freeing the slaves.


it is interesting how the party that backed slavery screams the loudest about things they did in the past while trying to blame everyone else...   seems to me that white guilt thing is actually just democrat guilt.

if the dems lived by their own rules?  they would change the name of the democrat party.

but yepp, zero chance of that happening also...

It's true that Clinton only won the popular vote by 2.1 points. I think 2020 will be a bit different. Aren't you sweating just a bit with Biden's double digit lead in the polls - even FOX.

But that's ok, come November you can change your name and brag about how you were always a stealth Biden supporter.

How many times do you have to be told that the national popular vote is meaningless. We have never elected a president of the country by popular vote. In the case of the vote in 2016, it was a damn good thing. 

As far as Bidens supposed lead, Clinton also had a substantial polling lead right up to election day include Fox poll and it, I mean she, still lost the electoral vote by a wide margin. So no I am not particularly worried.

They fail to see their own racism through their party over centuries, including slavery, the KKK and Jim Crowe laws.

I hear there is a call to cancel the democratic party because of their past and current support of slavery.

I really hope that call gets louder.

There has only been one constant throughout American history to describe those who fought to defend slavery, segregation, Jim Crow laws, bans on blacks and women voting, bans on interracial marriage and bans on gay marriage, and that is that they all thought themselves conservatives.

Conservatives have been members of many parties throughout our history, Democrat, Republican, Democratic-Republican Party, States Rights Democrat Party, Conservative Democrats, Southern Democrat, Dixiecrat, but throughout they have fought for the status quo and maintained they were staunch conservatives.

Today, the party of conservatives, the same ones who have been protecting and defending confederate monuments and flying the confederate flag, whose immediate grandparents fought tooth and nail against the civil rights act, have now largely registered Republican. It took 30 years of the Republican Southern Strategy which was not an overnight success, but eventually the Republican party was able to appeal to the Dixiecrat's angered with the direction the Democrat party had taken away from protecting racists and towards empowering minorities.

The Democrat party wrote the 1964 civil rights act, brought it to the floor and then had the majority of Democrats pass it and then a Democrat President signed it into law.

"From now on, the Republicans are never going to get more than 10 to 20 percent of the Negro vote and they don't need any more than that... but Republicans would be shortsighted if they weakened enforcement of the Voting Rights Act. The more Negroes who register as Democrats in the South, the sooner the Negrophobe whites will quit the Democrats and become Republicans. That's where the votes are." - Republican strategist Kevin Phillips in a 1970 interview with the NYT.

because the people against slavery would turn 360 and embrace slave owners? or because the people who just lost their slaves would then join the republicans who just freed the slaves?

" In American politics, the  Southern strategy  was a  Republican Party  electoral strategy to increase political support among white voters in the  South  by appealing to  racism  against African Americans.  As the  civil rights movement  and dismantling of  Jim Crow laws  in the 1950s and 1960s visibly deepened existing racial tensions in much of the Southern United States, Republican politicians such as presidential candidate  Richard Nixon  and Senator  Barry Goldwater  developed strategies that successfully contributed to the political realignment of many white, conservative voters in the South who had traditionally supported the Democratic Party rather than the Republican Party. It also helped to push the Republican Party much more to the right."

Perhaps not the history books you were allowed to read, but the facts surrounding the Republicans Southern strategy are well documented and irrefutable. Just because you don't want to admit it to yourself or some are too cowardly to accept the facts doesn't mean they didn't happen.

Some ignorant morons insist that because the conservatives who fought to defend slavery and created the KKK and Jim Crow laws called themselves Southern Democrats that somehow means the Democrat party of today is guilty of their crimes. If that made any sense, then you'd have to accept that those same bigots also called themselves Christians thus meaning that anyone who called themselves Christian today must also be guilty of any past Christians crimes, right? I mean, they use the same word to describe themselves, they went to Church and worshiped Christ and used their faith as an excuse to discriminate, so we can rightly say Christians founded the KKK, Christians fought to conserve slavery, Christians fought to conserve bans on blacks and women voting, Christians fought to conserve their bans on interracial and gay marriage.

Now some will say "But there were Christians who fought against slavery and segregation" which is true, just like there were Northern Democrats who did the same. So why do some keep insisting on blaming current liberal and progressive Democrats for the sins of past conservative Democrats? Because those manufacturing this lie are often descendants of those same bigoted conservative Democrats but changed their party affiliation over the last 30 years to become conservative Republicans and they are desperate to run from their bigoted legacy. These conservatives have no problem lying as their faith is merely a tool to be used to get what they want and abandoned whenever convenient.

You need to read basic history. Woodrow Wilson, the first " progressive President" actually re-segregated the federal government. He didn't just go along with segregation, he reversed it. It took a conservative, Warren Harding, to reverse Wilson's mandated segregation.

Plenty of liberals supported segregation, voted for the progressive polices of Roosevelt and Johnson etc. and remained Democrats in good standing. As the south became less racist, it became more Republican. Again, this is all easily verifiable if you consume  history from sources other than Dailykos rants from Starbucks baristas who skimmed some propaganda from Howard Zinn while at the local ju-co and fancy themselves knowledgeable.

That's hilarious. The South hasn't become less racist, they just got better at hiding it. Once Trump came out and gave them shade though they were back in the streets marching waving their confederate flags along side swastikas, protecting the monuments and memorials to the racists they admire. The Southern States turned red over the last 40 years. There was no mass migration or dying off of the old racists, those same white Christian conservatives who lived there before continue to work, live and vote there, they just affiliate with a different political party, the one that wasn't supporting black candidates in their districts, the one that appealed to them after the Democrat party eviscerated segregation by passing the civil rights and voting rights acts.

The facts are irrefutable, but some continue to push some fantasy re-imagining of white Southern conservatives, a white-washing while trying to pin the blame on a scapegoat. What is beyond clear is that those who would fight to preserve the confederate flag, those who would fight to conserve and preserve monuments and memorials to racist treasonous losers who attacked America, can be none other than those who have been steeped in that same confederate ideology from their ancestors.

Not true.

I live in a southern state where the black population is about 30 percent. Yes, there are racists here, as there are everywhere, but the population here get along well.

However, have you taken a good look at many northern states/cities? If the south was so racist, why do blacks still live here. Many northern states have black populations of single digits, sometimes low single digits, but make up 13 percent of the population. State taxes keep many blacks from living comfortable lives in northern states and property prices are out of reach for many minorities.

When a black conservative comes out against the democratic plantation, whites and blacks from northern states, mostly New York, show their true racism by calling these people names and insulting them horrendously.

A black man in Portland held an American flag at a riot the other night. The black man was met by white liberal racists and assaulted and called him names white liberals are known to call black conservatives.

Americans learned LONG ago that anytime a liberal accuses conservatives of something, it is already widely known that the liberal(s) are already practicing what the conservative is claimed of being.

The South hasn't become less racist, they just got better at hiding it.

if you think the south is as racist now as it was in  1936, it speaks volumes as to your credibility on the topic.  [deleted]

I think it is just that Democrats WANT the South to be as racist now as when Democrats ran things there.

You're not fooling anyone. The same people who ran it then run it now, they just registered with a different political party, one that welcomes white supremacists, white nationalists, wannabe Nazi's and lovers of the treasonous confederacy which is why they continue to defend the confederate flag and confederate monuments. Anyone with more than half a brain can see the direct correlation from those who erected those monuments to traitors and those who continue to defend them today.

I would say those people no longer exist. The nation has truly changed.

Can you ever post anything without smearing people?  Where are these Nazi's you always mention?

Anyone with half a brain would know the history of the US and why those statues were allowed to be put up. It was known as "the Reconciliation."

Well I can't argue there, no doubt many conservative Republicans only have half a brain.

But apparently those with only half a brain who claim to know their history forget about who those monuments celebrate and are too ignorant to understand why black Americans may lobby for their removal. The half brain defense for keeping them is also beyond stupid. There is no government on the planet that celebrates and erects monuments to the traitors who attacked them and lost. Only a true half wit would think that makes any sort of sense and would continue to defend and deflect to stop their removal.

It’s consistent with the current lunacy that’s trending. I don’t know how you argue against it. So many people are obsessed with erasing everything and anyone who ever did anything we now disapprove of. I don’t see why the Democratic Party should get a pass.

Louie Gohmert?  Really? 

Is this the best the TGOP can do?

Reminds me of early April, 1945, Berlin, when Hitler exhorted to his Field Marshals that General Steiner was coming from the North to smash the Russian armies.  Well, that never happened.  Steiner surrendered his forces to the Americans and British.

Yes. That or the openly racist Steve King. They are the GOP poster children. They and Trump represent the best that the GOP has to offer. Misogynistic, racist confederate loving fascist morons who believe the rest of the world should be sucking their tiny dicks for the "white races" supposed achievements while ignoring that they got where they are on the backs of women and/or slaves.

Look who's talking about attacking sources.  You and your pals do that all the time.

I only 'attack' sources to point out obvious right wing extremist nonsense/lies/propaganda.
