Louie Gohmert raises valid point
in call to rename Democratic Party

Original Article

Posted By: learner, 7/24/2020 9:31:01 AM

Rep. Louie Gohmert, Republican from Texas, introduced a resolution that would ban the Democratic Party, among other organizations, based on historical truths about the left’s embrace of racism and blatant support of slavery. It’s a resolution that yes, is eye-widening — but at least it strikes the right spirit. At least it raises a valid point.

Comments:

Make them live up to their own rules. I forget what Alinsky rule that is.

What a great low blow! The Democratic Party, the party of slavery, of the Civil War, of Jim Crow, the party of forced segregation, the party that voted against the Civil RIght's Act, should be stricken from the books and dissolved immediately. Hoist them up by their own petards and see how they try to slime their way out of it. Delicious!

Great idea. I read that 13 of the 15 statues to be removed from Congress are democrats.

I've said that since the beginning of all this nonsense -- the Democrat Party must be renamed b/c they are the party of the Slavery, KKK, Jim Crow, Eugenic Abortions, the Civil Rights Act FILIBUSTER, and now the Marxist BLM movement. Their new name needs to be the Socialist-Marxist Party so that their policy positions are abundantly clear to the outside world.

I've been emailing my two stumps on a log politicians for years that they need to change democrat name to socialist so they can start being truthful to their constituents because so far they are lying to them by calling themselves democrats. And it's ''democrat'' not ''democratic''. Nothing democratic about that party!!!!

I'm sure this was an article worthy of being read. Those that are not bothered by continuous pop-up ads and extraneous slide-in graphics can give us a short version. What I learned is that while many good ideas die aborning, the DNC will never change the name any more than a leopard cold change its spots.

I think that the Democratic Party owes reparations to Blacks for its long history of racism: rabid support of slavery, leading to the Civil War; alignment with its militant arm, the Ku Klux Klan; Jim Crow laws that subjugated and disenfranchised Blacks for decades; opposition to the Civil Rights Act of 1964; and its Great Society programs that have continued to enslave Blacks in poverty, ignorance, and misery.

You can add, that the Democrat party (of the Union) platform in the 1864 election against Lincoln was to end the Civil War and let the South secede. This would have enshrined slavery in the Southern Confederate States, as the Emancipation Proclamation would not likely be accepted in what comprised the South. Or, in the parlance of Nancy Pelosi - the Confederacy will do what the Confederacy will do.

FTA: ~~"And if Democrats don’t want to be seen as the party of hypocrites, the least they could do is explain the points raised in the resolution — and perhaps, along the way, offer some shame-faced apologies for the way they’ve treated minorities over the decades. And then? And then they should at least publicly discuss the idea of a party name change. At least pay it some lip service, for crying out loud. After all, as Gohmert said, “that is the standard to which they are holding everyone else.” Democrats, on racism, don’t deserve a free pass.

Great point #1. Why is this not more widly known. This is why the dems want history forgotten. Remember the dems are the party of the KKK and racist white supremacy. Why don't we keep telling thhe public that it was the dems who were the KKK and white supremesists.They were the slave owners and still to this day run inner cities like plantations. Take a look at this short video which talks about the 5 points used by the dems to keep blacks on the plantations are the same points used today to keep the blacks enslaved in the inner cities run by them. It is the dems who are the party of the KKK, white supremacists and racists to this day. They are also facists by trying to keep this truth from coming out.

He is exactly correct. And on top of all that, who are the people who, for years, have denied black children an education, an opportunity to better themselves, you got it, the democratic/communist party. The party who rejects school choice, voucher programs and charter schools. The party that chooses the teachers union over the needs of the inner cities. The party that steals every dime that should be benefiting poor. You see the sad fact is that blacks have migrated from the plantations of the south to the democratic/communist plantations of today. Sad fact is, nothing has changed. Education was not allowed during the slavery days and in democratic/communist run today education is non existent. What's worse is that black families keep voting these same pure communists into office and they still don't get it. Wake up......

I join with Louis Gohmert in demanding that the Democrat Party be renamed, and that they publicly renounce their past, and pay reparations to the blacks for what they have done. The Democrat Party should be disbanded, and all statutes of Democrat politicians destroyed, all names on streets and Navy ships, removed. I demand that Pelosi be removed from Congress, and her and her female Democrat colleagues never allowed to wear their white KKK outfits again.

Yes, #22. And by far the worst recent offender was the black messiah of the demonrat party who ended school choice at the beginning of his reign of error and then enrolled his own daughters in a $40,000 per year private Quaker school. DC has the worst public schools in the country and Hussein took away the only hope that blacks had to get their kids a decent education.

Politicians have no money. We the People are the bank and reparations would be paid by US. They sure aren't using any personal money. Just like the settlements We paid for their sexual misbehavior. Mostly, I think they should resign.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson said during his show on Friday that once-conservative news aggregator Matt Drudge of “The Drudge Report” is “now firmly a man of the progressive Left,” noting that his site has taken on a decidedly anti-President Trump bent in recent months.“For decades, Matt Drudge was one of the most influential figures in conservative journalism. His self-titled Drudge Report broke news and set priorities in digital media,” Carlson said as he began a segment with Drudge biographer Matthew Lysiak.“Republican presidential candidates made wooing the famously secretive Drudge a high priority,” he continued. “And for several of them it paid off big, including Donald Trump.”

The WNBA's Seattle Storm and New York Liberty teams walked off the court during the playing of the national anthem before the season-opening game on Saturday afternoon. The two teams' planned walk-off was part of the league's season-long Justice Movement initiative—designed to fight systemic racism and violence—which the WNBA and Women’s National Basketball Players Association announced earlier in July. On Saturday, players from the Storm and the Liberty headed for their locker rooms while the national anthem played at the WNBA bubble at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida.

Despite the occasional looting, chaos, property damage, trespassing, rioting, graffiti, assaults, arson and general mayhem, the media consistently assure us that antifa “protesters” are “largely peaceful.” And since the majority of buildings in Portland, Seattle and Denver haven’t been looted yet, who am I to argue?Of course, it takes only a sliver of the population to transform downtowns into a mess and create quality-of-life issues for thousands of law-abiding citizens.

President Donald Trump loves branding his opponents. Boy, do I have the brand for Joe Biden. Other than "Basement Biden." Or Biden is the leader of the "Dementia-crats." Those are effective and memorable, too. But nothing beats this little ditty: Biden stands for "Biggest Idiot Democrats Ever Nominated." Forget Biden's nonstop stumbling and bumbling. Forget that he appears to not know where he is (he talked about Vermont but was in New Hampshire), what day it is (remember "Super Thursday"?), what year it is (remember in the presidential debate when old Joe said supporters could "go to Joe 30330")

It was Meghan and Harry against the palace “vipers.” Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were so popular internationally that they were eclipsing the rest of the royal family — so a coterie of snake-like royal courtiers, the so-called “men in gray suits,” worked to thwart them, according to excerpts from a new biography that is very sympathetic to the famous couple. “Finding Freedom: Harry, Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family,” which is being serialized by the Times of London starting this weekend, said the palace “establishment’’ lived in fear of the couple’s global appeal.

What accounts for the frenzied shift to hysterical language among leftists when attempting to demean the president every time they open their mouths? That is an easy question; they know that Biden is a pathetic loser and that Trump is going to defeat him handily in November. Sure, the constant din of their hateful slings and arrows may have done some damage, but not nearly enough for him to lose the election, and the Democrats know it. Thus, we hear terms like "storm troopers," "militia," "private troops," and other nonsensical language to describe Trump's light-touch attempts at rescuing those Democrat-run cities

Leftists in Portland are routinely committing violence in the downtown area. This week, the rioters have set their sights on the Hatfield Federal Courthouse, which is a mistake since vandalizing federal property isn't handled by the pusillanimous officials of Portland but by folks at the U.S. Department of Justice. U.S. Attorney Billy Williams announced on Friday that 18 individuals arrested during attacks on the Hatfield Federal Courthouse this past week are now facing federal charges. Court documents say protests in downtown Portland have been followed by criminal activity that includes assaults on law enforcement officers, arson, looting, destruction of property, and vandalism.
