Utopia Talk / Politics / Louie Gohmert is fucking legend
Sat Jul 25 01:59:18

A group of Republican House members, led by Rep. Louis Gohmert of Texas, introduced a resolution Thursday that would effectively ban the Democratic Party from the House or force a party name change over past slavery ties -- a response to the recent efforts to remove tributes to past members of the Confederacy from the halls of Congress.

It specifically cites the Democratic Party platform's support for slavery between 1840 and 1856, and other racist actions by party members through the early-to-mid 1900s, before calling on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to "remove any items that names, symbolizes or mentions any political organization or party that has ever held a public position that supported slavery or the Confederacy" from the House and its properties. The resolution also says such a party "shall either change its name or be barred from participation in the House of Representatives."

Gohmert, in a statement accompanying the bill, told Democrats they should rebrand to "avoid triggering" anyone.

Well. Considering all.the shit that went down over strom Thurmond and dixiecrats this isn't without precedent. Remember the comment

" Maybe if he had been elected we wouldnt have had all.these problems for all these years"

Damn near.cost a man an elected position. It might have.

Tw, At first glance id say its a silly ploy.

But in all fairness, why is this any different from other symbols we have recently torn down due to ties to less offensive subject matter.

The USA should disband because of past slavery issues and because of genocide on the Natives. Why don’t they introduce this resolution?
