Should the Democratic Party Change Its Name?

 

My answer? It is the party of slavery.

Yes, after their support for slavery and racist laws and regulations for all those decades it’s clear that the well documented and unambiguous racist history of that party should make us all demand that the party distance itself from their history of racism. The party name makes me blanch every time I hear it or read it. How can anyone be associated with such a party that is laced with a sordid history of hatred and bigotry and racism?

    National Review will never join the calls for this. They only call for the Right to make changes. They never call on the Left to live up to their own crap.

    The memorial thing today has shown me just how much so called “conservatives” are willing to toss overboard in the the hopes the progressive alligator won’t eat them next. Conservatives conserve the past. Willingness to destroy the past goes with the French Revolution, Communism, and Religious Jihad. And that is where Conservatism, Inc. today now sides.

    Dinesh D’Souza spectacularly exposed this racist party of Andrew Jackson, Woodrow Wilson, LBJ, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton with his 2016 documentary …

    And nowadays the significant item of interest is their anti-Western stance. How about Bicoastal-Banana State Peoples Party?

    And can we add something about their love of Fidel Castro and other mass murderers from our hemisphere?

    They might even go along with it, as they are proud of their objective to have a small group of superior people rule everyone else. It’s just like the old British aristocracy, but instead of selection by birth, the method of selection is attending the “correct” university.

    Well yeah, the ones in south Texas, south California and south Florida are all Illegals, just pull up in an ICE van and they all scatter. The ones in the Northeast already have their guns taken away by the tyrants they vote for, and Northern California and the Northwest are all too stoned to fight.

    Definitely we should try to promote this narrative. As a minimum some ignorant Democrats may become aware of the history of their party.  The fact is  the bottom feeders who eagerly embrace the term alt right would remain Democrats if being called right didn’t reward them with respectability.
