  • AOC wants to "liberate" southern states from the GOP...

    Apparently she doesn't know very much about history- it was the anti-slavery Republican party that liberated the southern states from pro-slavery Democrat control- the Civil War, the Emancipation Proclamation, the 13th Amendment, the 14th Amendment, the 15th Amendment, Brown v. the Board of Education, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, yada, yada.

    "AOC: Country will heal with the 'actual liberation of southern states' from GOP control | Fox News" https://www.foxnews.com/politics/aoc...op-control.amp

    What's she trying to do- bring back slavery?

    The Republican party of Civil War, and Civil Rights are not the same as Republicans of the today.

      The Republican party of today is definitely not the party from the Civil War.

        The unintentional irony there is epic. How many times do you think you have to repeat that lie before people believe it?

        Which is why they're the ones defending confederate monuments and flying the confederate flag.
        Monuments to Democrats, and the Democrat Battle Flag, are not in any way associated with the Republican party.

        Whether you agree with the current GOP positions or not, it's just not historically accurate to pretend that somehow modern Democrats are the ones upholding the legacy of antebellum southern culture. They're not.
        The Democrats took up arms and went to war against the United States of America, to try to preserve slavery- there's no amount of deflecting, sugar-coating, or revisionist (fictional) history that's EVER going to change that. The whole reason the Republican party was founded, was as an anti-slavery party to combat the racism of the pro-slavery Democrat party.

        As much as Democrats would like to blame Republicans for the racist atrocities actually committed by Democrats, by claiming that the parties somehow magically "switched sides", it simply never happened.

        And this ain't ancient history- the Democrat presidential candidate in the 2016 election (Hitlary), referred to KKK Exalted Cyclops Robert Byrd as her "friend and mentor". KKK Grand Dragon Will Quigg openly expressed the KKK's endorsement and financial support of Hitlary in that race.

          What are you claiming about Nixon?

          George Wallace? He was a Democrat. Asa Earl Carter, leader of a KKK splinter faction, wrote his infamous "Segregation today, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever" speech.

          And Robert Byrd's outward "reformation" was because his actual role with the KKK became a liability when it came to harvesting black votes. His relationship with the NAACP was for political reasons, as the NAACP was even more opposed to a Democrat rival of his than they were to Wallace.

        Well, you chose to put them on.

        Own the racism of the Democrat master you blindly choose to pick votes for...

        Folks, what we have here is the textbook definition of the word "obfuscate".

              No.

              Because black lives don't actually matter to the BLM organization- only black deaths do.

              And even then, black deaths don't matter to BLM unless they occur during an adverse encounter with the police that fits the narrative they want to push.

                The GOP is the political party of choice for blacks. Just ask former House Speaker Paul Ryan.

                  Inuendos aren't going to cut it here- if you have something against Paul Ryan, then just come out and say what it is...

                  I just can't quite figure out the optics here. I know there is something i'm supposed to locate or something is lacking, I'm just not quite sure what it is. LOL

                The problem with this line of thinking is that's it's incomplete and it's very biased. It ignores that party realignment did happen throughout the mid all the way to the end of the 19th century (ie Thurmond to Trent Lott and Jesse Helms) It ignores that Northern Black men mostly supported the Democrat party since FDR. It ignores Harry Truman and Hubert Humprey, northern liberals who were some of the first White men to throw political weight behind civil rights issues.

                In the end, it's an entirely pointless exercise and lost on these people is the irony where they are simultaneously finger wagging at everyone about how Democracts are racist but also saying nobody should be thinking about race. Yet here they are saying one side is racist and the other isn't.

                Racism is and has been fundamentally rooted in both parties throughout our history and present.

                  Both sides have blood on their hands for the issues we face today.

                  Thankfully, some states are ripping their National Guard out of there, due to the mistreatment.

                    Plenty of legitimate disagreements people can have over substantive policy issues...why you choose to perpetuate this fantasy is beyond me. Or, actually, I can think of one reason...
                    Seriously, THIS.

                      Clinton/ Gore literally had Confederate flag campaign badges.

                      Robert Byrd literally died in office in 2010.

                      When did this reformation occur?

                      Answer: never did. Now they enslave minds and spirits of the unproductive thru the mantra of victimhood... rather than enslaving bodies... but it’s still slavery, and the product produced is votes... which votes allow the enslavement of the productive thru taxation.... to support the unproductive.
