GOP Introduces Resolution Banning Democratic Party Name Over Slavery

This is exactly the kind of thing you get in the era of Donald Trump, where Republicans finally have the cajones to fight back against Democrats, instead of being meek and cowed. Of course, the Credentialed Media is barely covering this, unsurprisingly. I’m find a total of 5 articles. You have Salon, which is, of course, defending Democrats and smearing Republicans, The Blaze, The Hill, and WSET in Virginia, along with

GOP reps push resolution to ban Democratic Party over past slavery ties

A group of Republican House members, led by Rep. Louis Gohmert of Texas, introduced a resolution Thursday that would effectively ban the Democratic Party from the House or force a party name change over past slavery ties — a response to the recent efforts to remove tributes to past members of the Confederacy from the halls of Congress.

It specifically cites the Democratic Party platform’s support for slavery between 1840 and 1856, and other racist actions by party members through the early-to-mid 1900s, before calling on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to “remove any items that names, symbolizes or mentions any political organization or party that has ever held a public position that supported slavery or the Confederacy” from the House and its properties. The resolution also says such a party “shall either change its name or be barred from participation in the House of Representatives.”

Gohmert, in a statement accompanying the bill, told Democrats they should rebrand to “avoid triggering” anyone.

“As outlined in the resolution, a great portion of the history of the Democratic Party is filled with racism and hatred,” Gohmert said. “Since people are demanding we rid ourselves of the entities, symbols, and reminders of the repugnant aspects of our past, then the time has come for Democrats to acknowledge their party’s loathsome and bigoted past, and consider changing their party name to something that isn’t so blatantly and offensively tied to slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination, and the Ku Klux Klan.”

He added: “To avoid triggering innocent bystanders by the racist past of the Democratic Party, I would suggest they change their name. That is the standard to which they are holding everyone else, so the name change needs to occur.”

The resolution is available at the link, and shows lots and lots of the Democrats links to slavery, bigotry, segregation policies, and links to the KKK. And, heck, it doesn’t even include all their anti-Chinese stuff from their party platforms. It’s surprising that ABC News, NBC News, CBS News, the NY Times, Washington Post, and LA Times fail to have any articles about this, eh?

Because the resolution is privileged, it takes priority over other business on the House floor. And assuming it isn’t dispensed with via voice vote, lawmakers would likely be forced to go on the record on the resolution, even if that’s through a motion to table it or refer it to a committee.

You can bet the vote will not be covered by the media: don’t want people to know the racist history of the Democratic Party, nor that they switched from being hardcore segregationists and racists after the Civil Rights era to keeping blacks down in the inner cities, making them essentially wards of the state, keeping them uneducated and poor, inviting heavy violence, and pushing abortion heavily for blacks.

Republicans should make sure they continue pushing this through the election.
