Democrats Who Used Confederate Images to Get Elected
There are few real journalists today. The networks are about ratings, money, and fitting into the Leftist narratives so they get invited to all right events and parties. Republicans are cowards. They want to be liked and invited to the same parties and hopefully have some cash thrown their way. It seems that all a Republican can do is apologize as if that ever worked. And they apologize for things that the Democrats are actually guilty of. For example, “Democrats have taken full credit for the civil rights movement, even though Republicans are the ones who got it passed, and even though the opposition to it came almost entirely from the Democratic Party.” We need to be reminded that Al Gore’s father, Sen. Al Gore, Sr. (D-TN), voted against a number of major civil rights legislation, including the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
What have the Republicans done to refute the lies of the Democrats on the history of the issue of race? Apologize! Dinesh D’Souza writes the following about the absurdity of it all in his new book The Big Lie that I highly recommend:
Talk about transference. This was my introduction to the Left’s political strategy of shifting the blame for racism onto the party that had historically opposed racism in all its forms. So successful were the Democrats in this con that in 2005 a head of the Republican National Committee, Ken Mehlman, went around apologizing to black groups for sins that had actually been committed, not by the Republicans, but by the Democrats (4-5).
Like clock work, Mitt Romney has called on Pres. Trump to apologize for telling the truth about the fascists who attacked the self-professed Nazis and other malcontents who had gotten a permit to march at the insistence of the ACLU, the same ACLU that in 1977 defended neo-Nazis in Skokie, IL, when they wanted to march through a predominately Jewish community.
The only thing Leftist “journalists” can do is push a narrative that benefits only one side. If there is anything that taints their side, it is not reported. This is getting harder to do because of all the alternative media. This soon may change since an alternative view may be considered “fascist” and/or “racist.” Google and Facebook may ban alternative opinions on “settled social policy.”
Wolf Blitzer made this assinine comparison for one reason and one reason only:
CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Thursday suggested the question would come up of whether the Barcelona attack may be a copycat of the attack in Charlottesville, Virginia last Saturday. The FOX Business Network’s Stuart Varney, of Varney & Co., responded to the comments, saying, “That’s sheer desperation to link President Trump with a terror attack in Spain, that’s what he’s just done.” The FOX Business Network’s Liz MacDonald then pointed out, “Terrorists have been using vehicles for two years for terror attacks.” (Fox Business)
If Blitzer did not know that cars and trucks have been used by Islamic terrorists for two years or he did know and said what he said anyway, he should be fired or resign.
If Confederate monuments and symbols are to be banned and removed from public viewing, and those who supported them are being designated as “White Nationalists,” then maybe those Democrats who used those symbols or did not condemn their use during their elections should be condemned and all their legislation overturned.
The following may not be official, but they were the official views of those who voted for these Democrats.
Here are a few of them:
Why were these buttons created? The people supporting Clinton and Gore (Gore was from Tennessee) favored the Democrat Party. Did Clinton or Gore denounce these campaign buttons? No. Were the people who supported Clinton and Gore “White Nationalists”? They could have been. It doesn’t matter. They used a pro-slavery/white supremacist symbol. “Off with their heads.”
Then there’s this one from Jimmy Carter’s 1976 campaign:
Compare these two pins:
Compare Hillary’s button with this one:
