Say, Should We Be Talking About Canceling The Democratic Party?

See, here’s the way Cancel Culture works: it doesn’t matter how far in the past it happened, if it is racism, sexist, mean, whatever, it should get cancelled. Apologies and doing good work doesn’t matter. Heck, an apology is more of a reason to cancel something

Kevin McCarthy: Should Nancy Pelosi ‘Start Talking About Changing the Name of Her Party’?

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) wondered this week if Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) should consider changing the name of the Democrat Party given her newfound commitment to purging the U.S. Capitol of all things reminiscent of the Confederacy.

“The speaker has the power to do that,” McCarthy said in response to Pelosi moving to remove portraits of four speakers — all Democrats — who served in the Confederacy.

“If the speaker is concerned about that, should she also start talking about changing the name of her party and actually changing the nominee?” McCarthy asked in a reference to Joe Biden (D), who referred to late Sen. Robert Byrd (D-WV), a former KKK member, as a mentor and “dear friend.”

Pelosi made the formal plea for the removal of the portraits in a letter to House Clerk Cheryl Johnson, requesting the “immediate removal of the portraits in the U.S. Capitol of four previous Speakers who served in the Confederacy: Robert Hunter of Virginia (1839-1841), Howell Cobb of Georgia (1849-1851), James Orr of South Carolina (1857-1859), and Charles Crisp of Georgia (1891-1895).”

All of those men were also once members of her Democrat Party– the party that has a long, tumultuous history of defending the institution of slavery and fighting to keep it.

Pelosi is calling for the removal of all Confederate statues, and, look, I agree with her, except for the ones that aren’t about individual people, those ones that recognize all those who died. But, I’ve thought going back to when I first came to North Carolina that it is weird to have statues and things named after Confederate big wigs because, well, they lost. And they were the ones defending against stopping slavery. Even ones like Robert E Lee, who was against slavery. He lost. He defended the Confederacy. There may have been more to the war than just slavery, but, that was the major point.

But, Pelosi’s party is the party of the Confederacy, Jim Crow, segregation, the KKK, and now attempting to keep Blacks down on the urban plantation, living in squalid conditions with crime and poor education. Their mid to early 20th Century platforms refers to blacks as Negros, a verboten word these days. Their 1868 platform is not happy about the Republicans allowing “Negro supremacy.” Their 1856 platform fully embraced slavery. Their 1920 platform was very anti-Asian. Robert Byrd, a “former” member of the KKK, who’s said some pretty bad things about Blacks, was a member of the US Senate as a Democrat till he died in 2010. It doesn’t matter than he apologized: cancel culture doesn’t accept apologies. All things Byrd should be torn down/have their names changed.

Cancel the Democrats.

    The Dems should be cancelled. All of their assets should be seized and then given to Black citizens as compensation for slavery and other crimes. A new party can spring with a name to reflect their current policies, the Marxist-Socialist Party.
