Anyone else notice the uptick of Trump supporters taking credit for the 14th and 15th amendment?

Apparently, African American Democrats like myself didn't know that before the white supremacist/alt-right retweeting Trump reminded white people of our total poverty and utter failures last week.

Saw this more than a view times today.

3. Anyone got a date on these statistics?

Frankly I think it's going to be great when Trump's base - fascist white supremacists - start turning away from him and the RNC in droves as they are no longer toeing the good old teabagger creed.

4. No, but they're extremely incorrect/lying anyway.

The Democratic Party had a large anti-slavery faction, a majority of which was trying to hold the union together by allowing slavery where it already existed but not allowing expansion. This attempted compromise was the reason for the birth of the new anti-slavery Republican Party (any resemblance to today's party entirely imaginary).

The 1860 Democratic primary set the stage for secession when anti-slavery Democrats voted down a plank for federal support of slavery in the platform and supported a candidate for president who had voted against admitting Kansas as a slave state.

Many pro-slavery southerners switched, or had already switched, to another, very conservative pro-slavery party, and of course secession from the union and its parties altogether followed not long after.

So, THIS nonsense?

6. That same GOP that would have shot you if they saw you waving a Confederate flag. That GOP?

The same GOP that started "the war of Northern aggression"
The same GOP if they caught you waving the rebel flag would have shot you on the spot.
The GOP that killed a lot of your kin folk, burnt down your cities, laid siege to Vicksburg, captured New Orleans, put a blockade on your states, and destroyed the South.
Is that the GOP you now are proud of?
Then quit waving that Confederate flag.

7. Flip it to "conservatives vs liberals" and they'll be on the losing side of those claims.

 

The kinds of liberal Republicans who accomplished those amendments don't exist any more. They're all Democrats now.
