If leftist radicals supported by leftist Democrats want to cancel – fill in the blank – they must cancel the Democrat Party.
VICTOR JOECKS: If UNLV’s Hey Reb! mascot is racist, then so is the Democratic Party
The Democrat Party’s history and it’s very existence is steeped in racism. The party traces itself back to the 1820’s and was strongly pro-slavery. The South fought a civil war against the US and was pretty much 100% Democrat. After losing the war, Democrats founded the KKK and opposed many rights being granted to blacks. Even in the 1900’s, prominent Democrats were virulent racists, including Woodrow Wilson. The Civil Rights Act is the 1960’s was not passed to give blacks more freedom and autonomy, but to buy them off as a voting block.
If the Democrat Party has an ounce of integrity, it will disband and dissolve. Or, the left must completely disavow it, if it really cares about racism. I won’t hold my breath.
