The left is currently on a crusade to cancel aspects of American history that they don’t like…soon to be themselves.
Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) wants the Democrats to put their money where their mouth is. He recently introduced a resolution to ban organizations that have had ties to slavery and other disagreeable aspects of the past such as the KKK. In other words, the Democratic party itself.

“A great portion of the history of the Democratic Party is filled with racism and hatred. Since people are demanding we rid ourselves of the entities, symbols, and reminders of the repugnant aspects of our past, then the time has come for Democrats to acknowledge their party’s loathsome and bigoted past, and consider changing their party name to something that isn’t so blatantly and offensively tied to slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination, and the Ku Klux Klan,” Gohmert said in a statement.
The resolution is co-sponsored by GOP Reps. Andy Biggs (Ariz.), Jody Hice (Ga.), Randy Weber (Texas) and Andy Harris (Md.). It comes after the House on Wednesday voted to remove from the Capitol statues of people who served in the Confederacy or defended slavery.
Gohmert on Thursday said the legislation “failed to address the most ever-present historical stigma of the United States Capitol, that is the source that so fervently supported, condoned and fought for slavery that was left untouched, but without whom, the evil of slavery could never have continued as it did to such extremes that it necessary to address here in order for the U.S. House of Representatives to avoid degradation of historical fact and blatant hypocrisy for generations to come,” according to The Hill.
These are the left’s new rules, after all. Shouldn’t the Democrats be cancelled?

It is not new information that the Democratic Party supported the institution of slavery during the time of the Civil War. Gohmert also cited examples of racist policies within the Democratic Party’s history, including former President Woodrow Wilson’s endorsement of racial discrimination. He suggested that the party change its name Thursday, saying that “that is the standard to which they are holding everyone else, so the name change needs to occur.”
