Cancelling Logic

Let’s use a little simple logic here:

The Left quickly “cancels” many historical Americans who had an association with slavery and racism. Statues get pulled down, historical narrative is rewritten, colleges rename long-standing building names, grammar and high schools are renamed, etc. These historical figures are being judged by 2021 standards without compromise. There can be no argument about it.

However, there is a problem with logic here:

The Democratic Party was founded in 1828 by General Andrew Jackson. The good general was a slave owner and a racist of the highest order. As a matter of fact, he made his fortune in cotton using slaves to harvest it. And if all of that wasn’t bad enough, he forced Native Americans off of their ancestral land. In other words, the Democratic Party was created to support slavery.

During the Civil War the Democratic Party fought hard to keep the slave economy intact. They passed the Kansas-Nebraska Act in 1854 that allowed states to decide the slavery issue themselves. As a matter of fact, the Republican Party was formed in 1856 in response to that act.

The Democratic Party was formed by racists to support racism. Democrats fought as “Confederates” to protect and preserve slavery. All the governors, generals and leaders of the South were Democrats.

After the Civil War, the Democrats stood firmly against Reconstruction and wanted to preserve slavery and in 1866 southern Democrats passed highly restrictive “Black Codes” to control the freedom of former slaves. It wasn’t long after that southern Democrats formed the Ku Klux Klan in order to preserve white supremacy. The KKK was 100% Democrat. All across the south Democrats lynched, tar-and-feathered, raped, and terrorized blacks through every means imaginable.

Jim Crow laws originated with the Democrats with those lasting well into the 1960s. Democrats passed laws segregating public transportation, schools, parks, cemeteries, theaters, restrooms and restaurants among other places. They also prevented blacks from voting by imposing literacy laws, property qualifications, and complex poll taxes.

Not long ago a prominent Democrat, Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia was a high-ranking official of the KKK as well as an active KKK recruiter. He openly bragged about it. He was the longest serving Democrat in Congress.

Democrats fought hard against civil rights laws and promoted the subjugation of black voters. When all of those failed, they felt that if blacks were going to vote they might as well vote for Democrats. President Lyndon Johnson famously said: “I’ll have them n——-s voting Democrat for 200 years.”

Joe Biden started his career as as segregationist and opposed school busing in the 1970s and 80s. Where is his cancellation notice?

I could go on for many paragraphs detailing the racist history of the Democratic Party even today. This history is factual, well-documented, and not open to debate. If the Left is going to judge the racial sins of the past through a 2021 prism, isn’t it the simplest of logic to say that the Democratic Party, its members, and those that support it should be “cancelled” also? If we are going to cancel Thomas Jefferson and George Washington shouldn’t Andrew Jackson be cancelled also? And if we are going to cancel Andrew Jackson, we must cancel the party that he formed.

YES!!!! America does have a racist party…..and it is not the Republican Party. On this point, history is abundantly clear and unambiguous.
