The Democrats were the party of slavery, but we don’t mention that. By Nina May.
Florida state senator Blaise Ingoglia introduced S.B. 1248, “The Ultimate Cancel Act,” which would require the Florida Division of Elections to cancel the filings “of any political party that has ever endorsed slavery in its official party platform.”
This comes on the heels of a cancel culture movement to tear down statues, ban Confederate flags, remove portraits of slave-owners from the U.S. Capitol, and rename thousands of public buildings across the country that carried the names of slave-owners. It is often overlooked that all these statues, the portraits, the school names…were all Democrats. All slave-holding Democrats. Because it was their party that fought a war causing hundreds of thousands of innocent people to lose their lives, as they fought to end slavery. …
Republican — freed the slaves over Democrat opposition
The Republican Party was founded in 1854 as an abolitionist party, with six of the nine planks in its platform dealing with abolishing slavery, equal rights, civil rights, and voting rights in the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments, respectively.
The Democrats, on the other hand, had in their platforms in 1844, 1848, 1852, and 1856 that they proudly supported and defended slavery and the right of a person to own another person. They believed in it so strongly that when Abraham Lincoln, the first Republican ever elected, made it clear that he would rid the country of the scourge of slavery, the Democrats packed up their tents and seceded from the Union, causing a war that pitted citizens against each other, ending in almost 800,000 dead Americans.
If one dime of reparations is paid to family members of slaves who suffered under the iron rod of a political party that fought a war to keep those slaves in bondage, it should be paid by the Democrat party. Democrats not only left the United States of America, but also formed their own country, with their own president, currency, flag, constitution, elected officials, etc., etc.
The one issue that all Democrats agreed on, as members of the slavery party, was that slavery should be legal. That’s what they fought for: to keep slavery legal, as the recently formed Republican Party did everything possible to end slavery.
Oddly enough, today no one mentions that the Democrats were the party of slavery, and many assume that Lincoln, who freed the slaves, was a Democrat. Which just proves how much the left controls the media and the education system.
