Hello everyone and welcome to our first edition of "NAME…THAT…REPUBLICAN. This is the game where we challenge you to name the Republican(s) who were in power for, voted for or participated in the following acts:
-the import of slaves from Africa
-the oppression of slaves from Africa
-secession from the United States of America
-the army of the confederacy
So everyone, it’s time to “NAME …THAT… REPUBLICAN”
The Republican party wasn’t really a thing until the late 1850’s and rose pretty quickly as a coalition party made up of Northern Democrats breaking away from Doughfaces, Whigs and Free soilers.
The main reason for their formation was slavery because even though people want to claim that slavery wasn’t the cause of the a civil war, it was the most important and divisive issue of the first part of the 1800’s
So in essence the question is none, since the Republican Party of the 1850’s was opposed to slavery but not necessarily all for racial and social justice.
People who were into real racial equality were those of the ilk of John Brown… and that guy got hung for treason.
Well it seems to be a big deal to BLM and ANTIFA running wild in the streets across the country under the banner that America is racist so are you saying that is only a cover for sedition and treason & they really don’t care about black lives or any life for that matter?
