Two of our favorites in one video! From the House floor, Rep. Louie Gohmert read from Daniel Greenfield’s recent article entitled, Racing Through History (which we published July 8). Here’s part of what Rep. Gohmert read:
“When Obama condemned Christianity for the Crusades, only a thousand years too late, in attendance was the Foreign Minister of Sudan; a country that practices slavery and genocide. Obama could have taken time out from his rigorous denunciation of the Middle Ages to speak truth to the emissary of a Muslim Brotherhood regime whose leader is wanted by the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity. But our moral liberals spend too much time romanticizing actual slaver cultures.
It’s a lot easier for Obama to get in his million dollar Cadillac with its 5-inch thick bulletproof windows, a ride Boss Hogg could only envy, and chase down a couple of good ole boys than it is to condemn a culture that committed genocide in our own time, not in 1099, and that keeps slaves today, not in 1815…
The Confederate flag is a matter of history. The racial tensions stirred up by Obama have actually gotten people killed. Slavery is not making a comeback and Robert E. Lee will not come riding into San Francisco any time soon.
The Civil War ended long ago. The country would be a better place if modern racists who believe that some lives, whether black or white, matter more than others would stop trying to start one.”
If the Democrat Party wants to eliminate any and all references that remind us of slavery, Gohmert suggests that in addition to taking down flags, the Democrat Party should also change their name. Not only was the Democrat Party responsible for slavery to begin with, they also created the KKK and later blocked the Civil Rights movement. Rep. Gohmert read from the 1856 Democrat Party Platform which, as he says, “Reads like a manual from the KKK.” The Democrat Party’s origins represents everything they claim to hate–so if the flag comes down, so should the name, “Democrat Party.”
