The Democrats were the party of the Confederacy — and still are

Kurt SchlichterHost of Take That

Liberals, being stupid and terrible, often hoot n' holler that us conservatives are the modern confederates. But is that so? Let's compare the liberals of today and see where they come out on the Union-Confederates scale!

Parties? The Democrats were the party of the Confederacy, the Republicans of the Union.

Dehumanizing whole classes of people and treating their lives as worthless? Check - look at the new "It's cool to murder them til' they can drive" New York abortion law.

Basic injustice? How about the two track justice system where crooks and liars like Hillary, Comey, Clapper and the rest get to perjure their hearts out (and worse) but anyone associated with their political enemies has a SWAT team show up on their lawn?

Civil rights? Free speech - against. Freedom of religion - against. Guns - are you kidding.

Gee, I guess the modern Confederacy analogy works... just not the way the leftists hoped.

Which raises the question once again- why do leftists want to believe and promulgate lies?

All knowing Andrew’s post once again makes one feel less smart after reading it. Don’t you hate it when facts blow the leftistist regressive narrative to pieces there all knowing one?

Democrats want to bury the infanticide story because it is clinging to them like Velcro so they pull this old yearbook rabbit out of their hat to take off the heat.
What a bunch of phony bastards.

They want everyone to go along with their sanctioned view of things and will not tolerate any one disagreeing with them.They want everyone to conform to their point of view. Everyone has to think alike because diversity is their strength.They hate any one who goes against the norm they have created,
anyone who dare thinks differently is unacceptable.

What would wealthy Dems do without cheap illegal migrant labour? Who would maintain the yards of their estates, mind their children, clean their homes and cook their meals? Where would they go? What would they do?

Martin Luther King’s daughter, Alveda King, maintains there are links between the KKK and Democrat darling Planned Parenthood.

Why do Dems want mass illegal migration? Why to fill the need for cheap labour and docile workers for the Democrat plantation. Just look at the Democrat State California where these modern day slaves work the fields just as they did in the old South. Of course it isn’t just the Dems who indulge in this, there are also ultra rich Fredocons like the Koch brothers who support an unlimited source of cheap self importing labour. AHOY!

Take note of Andrew’s post. Notice how all over the map he is?Like a lost puppy trying to sniff hi way home but getting distracted by orange peels and pop cans along the way? This is actually very common amongst leftist voters. I’ve debated with tons of them and they’re ALL like that!!! Just an observation.

Your fellow travellers Andrew . . . . racist Democrats ! Still angry that Lincoln freed their slaves . . .


March 12, 1956 Ninety-seven Democrats in Congress condemn Supreme Court’s decision in Brown v. Board of Education, and pledge to continue segregation


June 5, 1956 Republican federal judge Frank Johnson rules in favor of Rosa Parks in decision striking down “blacks in the back of the bus” law

November 6, 1956 African-American civil rights leaders Martin Luther King and Ralph Abernathy vote for Republican Dwight Eisenhower for President


September 9, 1957 President Dwight Eisenhower signs Republican Party’s 1957 Civil Rights Act

September 24, 1957 Sparking criticism from Democrats such as Senators John Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson, President Dwight Eisenhower deploys the 82nd Airborne Division to Little Rock, AR to force Democrat Governor Orval Faubus to integrate public schools


May 6, 1960 President Dwight Eisenhower signs Republicans’ Civil Rights Act of 1960, overcoming 125-hour, around-the-clock filibuster by 18 Senate Democrats

May 2, 1963 Republicans condemn Democrat sheriff of Birmingham, AL for arresting over 2,000 African-American schoolchildren marching for their civil rights

June 10, 1964 Senate Minority Leader Everett Dirksen (R-IL) criticizes Democrat filibuster against 1964 Civil Rights Act, calls on Democrats to stop opposing racial equality. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was introduced and approved by a staggering majority of Republicans in the Senate. The Act was opposed by most southern Democrat senators, several of whom were proud segregationists—one of them being Al Gore Sr. Democrat President Lyndon B. Johnson relied on Illinois Senator Everett Dirksen, the Republican leader from Illinois, to get the Act passed.


August 4, 1965 Senate Republican Leader Everett Dirksen (R-IL) overcomes Democrat attempts to block 1965 Voting Rights Act; 94% of Senate Republicans vote for landmark civil right legislation, while 27% of Democrats oppose. Voting Rights Act of 1965, abolishing literacy tests and other measures devised by Democrats to prevent African-Americans from voting, signed into law; higher percentage of Republicans than Democrats vote in favor.

@ Andrew S . . . .

More Republicans voted for the Civil Rights Act of 1965 than Dems . . . .

“the Dems, at least, invoke individual rights to the point where they inevitably collide” ?
The Dems are Collectivists, Statists or to keep it real simple for you . . . marxists !
The Party of JFK has moved completely into the Socialist Tent . . . just listen to their gaggle of fools that want to run for Pres. and the new Congress critters.
You always seem a nickel short Andrew . . . watching too much CNN I suspect.

Andrew Stephenson the dems do not support freedom more than the republicans, you are truly lost.
commented 2019-02-01 16:44:58 -0500
Andrew those are not just stories about the Clintons because you want to deny them. There is actual evidence as opposed to the BS the media spews out.
commented 2019-02-01 16:43:28 -0500
Andrew Stephenson that is complete BS.

What’s more interesting than when the Democrats switched over to advocating in favour of civil rights in the 1960s, is that the Republicans became the party opposing them.

Politicians, in general, get away with far more than Joe Average. The Republicans are hardly innocent, and frankly the only reason some of these stories around Clinton are still around is that she’s simply less adept at yelling “Fake News” every time something unflattering bubbles up.

Neither party truly offers freedom of speech or freedom of religion (the Dems, at least, invoke individual rights to the point where they inevitably collide; the GOP is owned by evangelicals who want a Christian theocracy), and I don’t think either party really has the best approach to guns, as both parties are owned by lobbyists and are thinking with their wallets rather than their brains.
