  1. Thanks for the help Brad, you’re so gracious and helpful to someone who doesn’t have a clue!!! Should I use yellow font so you’ll understand sarcasm in both of these posts. Lol By the way an exclamation point means emphatic and all caps is screaming in the texting etc. world.
  2. Which the majority of started in the Democratic Party! The following are a few basic historical facts that every American should know. Fact: The Republican Party was founded primarily to oppose slavery, and Republicans eventually abolished slavery. The Democratic Party fought them and tried to maintain and expand slavery. The 13th Amendment, abolishing slavery, passed in 1865 with 100% Republican support but only 23% Democrat support in congress. Why is this indisputable fact so rarely mentioned? PBS documentaries about slavery and the Civil War barely mention it, for example. One can certainly argue that the parties have changed in 150 years (more about that below), but that does not change the historical fact that it was the Democrats who supported slavery and the Republicans who opposed it. And that indisputable fact should not be airbrushed out for fear that it will tarnish the modern Democratic Party. Had the positions of the parties been the opposite, and the Democrats had fought the Republicans to end slavery, the historical party roles would no doubt be repeated incessantly in these documentaries. Funny how that works. Fact: During the Civil War era, the "Radical Republicans" were given that name because they wanted to not only end slavery but also to endow the freed slaves with full citizenship, equality, and rights. Yes, that was indeed a radical idea at the time! Fact: Lincoln's Vice President, Andrew Johnson, was a strongly pro-Union (but also pro-slavery) Democrat who had been chosen by Lincoln as a compromise running mate to attract Democrats. After Lincoln was assassinated, Johnson thwarted Republican efforts in Congress to recognize the civil rights of the freed slaves, and Southern Democrats continued to thwart any such efforts for close to a century. Fact: The 14th Amendment, giving full citizenship to freed slaves, passed in 1868 with 94% Republican support and 0% Democrat support in congress. The 15th Amendment, giving freed slaves the right to vote, passed in 1870 with 100% Republican support and 0% Democrat support in congress. Regardless of what has happened since then, shouldn't we be grateful to the Republicans for these Amendments to the Constitution? And shouldn't we remember which party stood for freedom and which party fiercely opposed it? Fact: The Ku Klux Klan was originally and primarily an arm of the Southern Democratic Party. Its mission was to terrorize freed slaves and "ni**er-loving" (their words) Republicans who sympathized with them. Why is this fact conveniently omitted in so many popular histories and depictions of the KKK, including PBS documentaries? Had the KKK been founded by Republicans, that fact would no doubt be repeated constantly on those shows. Fact: In the 1950s, President Eisenhower, a Republican, integrated the US military and promoted civil rights for minorities. Eisenhower pushed through the Civil Rights Act of 1957. One of Eisenhower's primary political opponents on civil rights prior to 1957 was none other than Lyndon Johnson, then the Democratic Senate Majority Leader. LBJ had voted the straight segregationist line until he changed his position and supported the 1957 Act. Fact: The historic Civil Rights Act of 1964 was supported by a higher percentage of Republicans than Democrats in both houses of Congress. In the House, 80 percent of the Republicans and 63 percent of the Democrats voted in favor. In the Senate, 82 percent of the Republicans and 69 percent of the Democrats voted for it. Fact: Contrary to popular misconception, the parties never "switched" on racism. The Democrats just switched from overt racism to a subversive strategy of getting blacks as dependent as possible on government to secure their votes. At the same time, they began a cynical smear campaign to label anyone who opposes their devious strategy as greedy racists.
  3. She’s not a extremist, she mainstream Democratic!
  4. What do all the millions of black and Hispanic republicans think? This is a ridiculous left wing talking point that the GOP wants a white America. Trying to lump all conservatives in with a small minority of white supremacy idiots is ridiculous as lumping all liberals with the fascist group Antifa!
  5. Don’t forget the Lion King movie, there’s some left guy saying it’s racist!
  6. I had the Justin Beeber haircut in 1976 with the swept look and people thought he invented it! 😂
  7. Wear it long enough and it’ll be in style again! 😆
  8. Reading this thread is like reading the War and Peace of forums! 😝
  9. Glad this isn’t a thread asking for captions! 😂 It’s a family friendly site.
  10. Man you’re so smart. I reacted to you saying I would criticize a Democrat/Clinton but not Trump. I said you do the same thing with Trump and not Democrats. 😂 You accused me of doing what you had already done! It’s called equating.
  11. 😂 You literally did that in your post about Clinton above!! 😂 Maybe you should try again.
  12. By the way the quote in the first section of the OP was Clinton and the quote in the second section on immigration policy was President Obama!
  13. I must have missed the thread where you called out Ilhan Omar and Rashid Tlib for their anti Semitic tweets and words and legislation! I also missed the one where you called out Obama for his immigration policies that are close to Trump or the people in cages during his presidency.
  14. Actually, I thought BClinton got a raw deal and was one of the only Democratic presidents in my lifetime, other than JFK, that I had a lot of agreement with! I don’t agree with the moral character of most politicians! I do believe that they will answer to God one day, and judgment is His because only He knows their intent and heart. By all means if you are perfect and know their true intentions then congratulations, you’re a god!
