Candace Owens Black Conservative and Trump supporter

Slavery, the Civil Rights Act. It’s all about geography. It’s Northern ideology vs Southern Ideology. Northern Republicans and Democrats, were for the CRA, Southern Republicans and Democrats were against.


#203

Northern dems opposed the freeing of the slaves as well.


#204

You are right but you want to know what’s ironic?

North is more segregated then south thou. Which I know you’re going to disagree.


#205

Yup, and then 100 years later they were for the CRA. Things change over time.


#206

Yes because they were dependent on cheap textile.


#207

Even then their support was a much lower percentage than among the GOP.


#208

That is a lie. Northern Democrats vote in favor of the 13th amendment 190-10 (both houses)


#209

That’s because a majority of the GOP was northern, and vice versa.

Why are you trying to make this a sole party issue?


#210

Ok. Do you deny the racism followed regional lines? Northern Dems seemed much less racist, no?


#211

True. But again, the northern Dem support was higher than the northern GOP support AND the southern Dem support was higher than the Southern GOP support. (By percent)


#212

No one here is rewriting history. You’re just fixated on irrelevant labels. It’s not a good look, for the record.


#213

There is no doubt in my mind that today’s republicans would be on the side of the abolitionists in 1864, especially those in the south. Wouldn’t you agree?


#214

More than one word is necessary, too.


#215

There aren’t “huge numbers of white supremacists” to turn out period.


#216

The abolitionist movement was populated primarily by conservative white protestants.

The CRA was pushed through by probably the most racist president in US history and was only able to be passed due to republicans crossing over to offset the dem’s that refused to support it.


#217

Race baiting with the intention of undermining Peace and America First and to create social discord so as to damage America, is sedition.


#218

So you don’t think the votes were correlated along North/South lines and instead were Dem/Repub?


#219

The democrats used to be a party of strong nationalism, pro military, and they have since become the party of liberal big, nanny-state extremists, pro-abortion, hostile to religion and corporations, that’s why people left the party.

There is nothing in the Republican party planks that promote white supremacy, so it’s ignorant to try and connect the two.


#220

Agreed. Who did white supremacists vote for?

So which party do they seem more comfortable in?


#221

Is this David Duke evil nonsense a headline on Media Matters? If not I’m sure they send out their trolls. Sedition, not free speech. Time to close down Media Matters as anti American propaganda and expose their brigading minions. This is BS
