If statues are being removed because of ties to Confederacy, shouldn’t the Democratic Party be removed?

 

Opinion: Speaker Nancy Pelosi is calling for the removal of 11 Confederate statues from the Capitol’s National Statuary Hall Collection.

In a letter sent on Wednesday, Pelosi asked the Joint Committee on the Library to direct the Architect of the Capitol to remove the statues of soldiers and officials who represent the Confederacy.

According to the article by By Chris Marquette, Pelosi specifically mentioned two prominent Confederates — Jefferson Davis and Alexander Stephens — who served as president and vice president of the Confederate States of America, respectively, and who were charged with treason against the United States. Stephens’ statue was given by Georgia and Davis’ by Mississippi.

“While I believe it is imperative that we never forget our history lest we repeat it, I also believe that there is no room for celebrating the violent bigotry of the men of the Confederacy in the hallowed halls of the United States Capitol or in places of honor across the country,” Pelosi wrote.

If the issue is to eliminate the remnants of the confederacy from the United States Capitol, perhaps we should begin with Democrat Party. It was the Democrat party that followed the views of the late John C. Calhoun, who insisted slavery was national.

When we talk about the Confederacy, we can easily replace that name with the Democratic Party. Some argue that the Democratic party then is different than the party now. They “believe” that when the Democrats voted in the Civil Rights Act that that meant they changed their ideology. In fact, all they did was change their tactics to get the black vote.

Although the Civil Rights Act of 1964 helped end segregation on grounds of race in the South, a critical objective for which grassroots black Southern activists fought and died, the legislation did little to address the structures of racism that shaped black lives.

The Democratic vision of social justice was very limited. Some say they passed the legislation, stayed in power, and moved on.

If the Democrats truly care about equality for blacks why haven’t they addressed housing, jobs, integrated schools, crime, and prison reform in their states and cities? Democratic states have the worst black neighborhoods in America thanks to unequal opportunities. Look at Chicago, L.A., New York, Pennslyvania, and Detroit.

The truth is, the Democrats are the only party that is benefiting from blacks being inequal. Even Elizabeth Warren admitted that the Democratic party always makes promises to blacks they never make good on.

Every election cycle they promise big changes are on the horizon for blacks. They pander at every opportunity they get.

The real question is, why do blacks continue to vote for a party that hasn’t done anything for them except perpetuate their need to depend on them.

Just like in Kentucky the governor has promised free healthcare for blacks. Instead of creating better circumstances where blacks can have better jobs and provide better healthcare for their families, they create a system where blacks are dependent on them.

Many claim that blacks are waking up. After the riots in N.Y. blacks chanted for both DeBlasio and Cuomo to resign. Could it be that they finally see that they are a huge part of the problem?

Chants for De Blasio to go home at Floyd protest.

    This is totally crazy and stupid, these statues represent our past history. i’m not part of the Confederacy but to take out the statues won’t change the history that took place. My question is why now the statues have been in the United States Capitol forever, It seems everyone/organization is wanting to get rid of all the Confederate flags again this really won’t change the past.

      Removing and leaving the same mindset among the lawmakers from that state doesn’t change anything. The statues aren’t hurting us it’s the politicians with at minder!

    I agree. The democrat party also committed treason and criminal acts against humanity. I say we keep the statues and lose Pelosi and the rest of her democratic demons

    Qanon had an interesting question. “Why are [D]s attempting to remove their past [‘as’ confederates]?”

    Tearing down statues of dead Democrats is one thing, trying to erase our nations history is another. If we don’t acknowledge our nation’s true past, how can we prevent a repeat of the worst of it. This allows the liars to make it up as they go, as a way to promote their agendas. And just like Isis, they’re lopping off the heads first……What’s next?

    • I agree with you and I think that’s their goal take away our history and then they can mold everyone around us into the future if they want and I will be dependent on them

        Yes! The communist agenda requires removing the cultural heritage of the past and replacing it with their various communist icons. We have a glorious heritage! America—like no other country—has paid a HUGE price to right the wrongs that every government has maintained (at least, she did while she was still a “Christian nation” UNDER GOD INDIVISIBLE! Unfortunately, we don’t seem to be such now, and for that reason, we have disintegrated into a VERY racist society where the liberals are requiring that the only this that matters is the color of one’s skin (or, in the case of white people, that they, too, rate EVERYTHING on the basis of the color of one’s skin). We are NOT simply little cells of various COLORS transacting acitivities with one another. We are multifaceted PEOPLE! May we value one another as such.

    If the DNC wants to erase our entire history than yes they need to start with themselves first as they they WHERE the Confederacy and “Knights of the Ku Klux Klan”, they demanded “Segregation now, Segregation forever”, and they resided over the “Great Society” which continues to fail millions of persons residing in DNC run cities to this very day! The Republicans were and are the party of Lincoln and Abolition. This is the historical record, it cannot be erased!

    Democrats are only doing this so they can keep as many votes as they can from the black community. They don’t give a fucking rats ass about anyone. Especially the black community. They just promise the them the world and never deliver so they will vote democrat. The young community can only here the words free this free that. Racism this racism that. It’s so fucked up. I just hope more and more continue to wise up and see this. Guarantee they vote these fuckers out it will get better. But not until then. Wake up dems. They care about there power and agenda not u. Vote them all out. It’s time for change!

      Sad commentary from the far right financed by NRA, white suprematists, Saudi government and many other entities that do not have the well-being at heart. These right wing rags should be defunded.
