And they had one of the biggest scandals in American history with the “Tweed Gang” in New York City between 1853 and 1871 and an even bigger one with the Clintons now.
The Dems are STILL into SLAVERY!! They have ENSLAVED BLACKS, RUINED their Lives and Families, taken out the man in the house, and any Black who dares to leave the Democrat Party is called an UNCLE TOM!
Confederate Dixie Ping
Often, I’ve pointed these facts out to a liberal; the response is that the two parties “switched” philosophies at some vague point in time, and the Democrats are actually the party that is not racist, the Repugnant Republicans took over as the racists.
Bizarre people with bizarre views, can’t cite details or proof of amazing “switch”.
Now youve done it! The Southrons of Free Republic will rise up in defense of old Dixie to explain how it was actually the Proto Facist Abe Lincoln and the Jewish bankers of NYC who started the Civil War!
And then there was Klanbake...
And a good description here, if you ignore the proposed parallels to the 2016 Republican convention possibilities.
Don’t forget they were also behind Jim Crow and segregation in the South.
Trump's speaking the truth... the real conversation has started.
Yes, democrats destroyed the black community... and democrats were the party of the KKK and White Citizens Councils and Bull Conner and George Wallace... and when Biden says he worked with segregationists he was TALKING ABOUT WORKING WITH FELLOW DEMOCRATS.
She’s always made so much sense. Perhaps put her in Betsy DeVos’ position.
On March 28, 1864, there was a riot involving Copperheads (southern-sympathizing “Peace Democrats”) and Union soldiers in Charleston, Illinois, Land of Lincoln. A judge kicked off some controversy when he allowed four Union deserters to walk free. The Copperheads alleged that Union soldiers had “humiliated” the judge by forcing him to take an oath of loyalty to the Union.
Other Union soldiers were called in to maintain get things under control in Charleston but by the time they arrived, the Copperheads had been run out of town. Peace Democrats were not just in opposition to the Union war effort, but they also spread alarm among whites about what would happen if lots of emancipated slaves were to arrive on the scene.
Dems were and still are the fascists too. Antifa is the biggest fascists. They stop the free expression of ideas and try to stifle free speech. They are also violent. They should be taken to jail.
The only problem I saw with the video was the claim that Nathan Bedford Forrest founded the KKK. Although he served briefly as Grand Wizard, Forrest was not a founder.
In 1860, Northerners were primarily secularly-minded and the Republicans were the party of big taxes, big government and the sovereignty of the federal government.
Southerners were religious-minded and Democrats were for small government, low taxes, and the sovereignty of the individual states.
Too bad if that doesn't suit your ad hominem attacks against the demoncrats, but many planks of their respective platforms have swapped sides of the aisle since then.
It’s as if the original democrats were the Tories who got left behind.
“...the Democrat Party defended slavery, actually started the Civil War...”
The Civil War was about far more than slavery which was only a smallish component of a far larger economic package of issues. This woman is allowed to teach? Maybe she should learn and study about what she is teaching.
“and fought against the Civil Rights Act”
You mean like Barry Goldwater did? And Ronald Reagan? And William F Buckley?
This new love for trying to outdo the Democrat Left in virtue signalling is remarkable for its stupidity, unless your goal is to reinforce their condemnation of 1960s conservatives for opposing the 1965 Civil Rights Act.
