Not surprising at all


#163

The racist history of the democrat party and its pro slavery position is simply fact for all to judge.


#164

Correct. I’ve watched these games for almost 60 years. They always get stuck between arguments.


#165

It’s cute how you naively believe the two parties have the same ideology today as they did then.


#166

What states were these Republicans from? Which states are Republicans from now?


#167

It’s not so cute that dems try to rewrite unfavorable history and share the same talking points in their futile attempt.


#168

I wish they would have just called themselves Libs and Cons back then. We wouldn’t constantly have this argument now.

I wonder if the old, grumpy guys that hated change yelled at the kids to get off their dirt.


#169

She’s not alt right, she is a free thinker…educate yourself!


#170

No that is what conservatives are attempting. It might be embarrassing but I fully acknowledge that the Democratic party use to be the party of conservative white men.


#171

This cannot be emphasized enough. All GOP southerners in Congress voted against the Civil Rights Act. Almost all southern Dems did.

In the north, most GOP reps and senators voted for the CRA. An even higher percentage of northern Dems voted for the CRA.

It was voted for/against on regional lines. Some on this thread want to ignore facts.


#172

We don’t deny it. Things change in a hundred years. Luckily the northern Democrats ascended to dominate the party.


#173

The northern democrats were the ones voting against the 13th amendment which freed the slaves. :slight_smile:


#174

Was the civil war about slavery? Was the confederacy fighting to keep slavery.


#175

She’s a stupid black woman I’m I right?


#176

Well im sure a large part of it was those southern democrat plantation owners wanted to keep slavery.


#177

:rofl:


#178

Yes, avoid the truth at all costs. Modern day GOPs MO.


#179

Hang on folks. We may have a defector.

So you’re saying the civil war WAS about slavery, correct? And if so, the confedracy was fighting to continue human trafficking, correct?


#180

The Senate version, voted on by the House:[22]

Democratic Party: 153–91 (63–37%)
Republican Party: 136–35 (80–20%)

As you can see a higher percentage of the gop voted for the civil rights act than the dems. MUCH higher in fact.


#181

I’m speaking about the CRA, a hundred years later. You can tell because I said “things change in a hundred years”. You must have missed that.

Regardless, I acknowledge that the conservative Dems of the Civil War era were racist.
