At least this is stupid and silly. Unlike, for instance, Bok who’s actively trying to kill his readers.
Steve Kelly is on the side of unlearning history.
Is SKelley REALLY that stupid?
Or is he just LYING again, like all Trump Disciples?
Don’t ask if Steve is “really that stupid”. Ask if Joe Biden is that stupid. Answer – He is. He’s the one that made those inflammatory remarks. BTW Braindead, Joe just hit 33% approval, and 55% disapproval. And Kamala is worse. Bet you can’t wait for a Republican led senate and house.
SKelley shows off his ignorance about history, conflates the difference between Liberal and Conservative vs Republican and Democrat and completely ignores the Southern Strategy.
But then, there’s SKelley for you.
RacismRacismRacismRussiaRussiaRussiaOrangeManBadOrangeManBad………but no examples of real Racism. Please be upset with China, South Africa, etc. where real racism exists. You have to “mine” for ‘racism’ in USA.
Republicans like to call themselves The Party of Lincoln. Because the best (only) example they have to show they aren’t racist has been dead for 157 years.
The Democratic Party is the Enemy of Humanity, along with their partners in crime, the Republicans. All these brainless fools who attack the Republicans are part of the problem. This is CLASS WAR. The enemy is CAPITALISM. Build the unions. Fight the system that oppresses you.
And Republicans are the racists today, so that’s what I want to be.
Great ‘toon! Dementia Joe blaming his party’s sins on the GOP! His Alzheimers is getting worse every day. Let’s go, Brandon!
Kelly was still in diapers when George Wallace and Connor were Dixiecrat stains on America. They were not Democrats any more than Manchin or Sinema are today, and never represented the Democrat Party or platform. But they certainly would be aligned and embraced by the Republican Party.
hilarious watching the arse holes…oops I mean democrats deny, deny, deny….
Ronald Reagan famously said that he didn’t leave the Democratic Party, the Democratic Party left him.
Maybe Reagan was just following the racism?
In true republican fashion.. will go down with the ship rather than yield to common sense.
Very true on all counts. I’ve watched it happen.
Got that one right!!!
“Conservatism, then, is not a commitment to limited government and liberty – or a wariness of change, a belief in evolutionary reform, or a politics of virtue. These may be byproducts of conservatism, one or more of its historically specific and ever-changing modes of expression. But they are not its animating purpose. Neither is conservatism a makeshift fusion of capitalists, Christians, and warriors, for that fusion is impelled by a more elemental force – the opposition to the liberation of men and women from the fetters of their superiors, particularly in the private sphere. Such a view might seem miles away from the libertarian defense of the free market, with its celebration of the atomistic autonomous individual. But it is not. When the libertarian looks out upon society, he does not see isolated individuals; he sees private, often hierarchical, groups, where a father governs his family and an owner his employees… the conservative position stems from a genuine conviction that a world thus emancipated will be ugly, brutish, base, and dull. It will lack the excellence of a world where the better man commands the worse… Each in his own way subscribes to this typical statement, from the nineteenth century, of the conservative creed: ‘To obey a real superior… is one of the most important of all virtues – a virtue absolutely essential to the attainment of anything great and lasting.’” – The Reactionary Mind
Kelley also says that ’Trump’s Inaugural Crowd was the largest ever to assemble on the Washington Mall!’
[ And he’ll probably tell you that the Oath Keepers were just leading “tourists” through the Capitol on Jan. 6th. ]
The peanut gallery is full of history deniers. Not surprised – if I was associated with Democrats, I’d want to hide that too.
The Democrats’ ugly racist PAST is the Republicans’ ugly racist PRESENT. <= I really like this statement.
Did skelly make it through high school?
You forgot Biden’s good buddy and KKK member Senator Byrd.
Yes, the Democrats used to be the party that resisted civil rights, engaged in racism, and suppressed voting rights. BUT ALL OF THOSE PEOPLE ARE DEAD!
Not, it’s the Republican Party who embraces all those things, plus White supremacy and the violent overthrow of our democratic government. AND ALL OF THOSE PEOPLE ARE STILL ALIVE. (After all, Covid can only do so much, right?)
Well, since they were all Democrats, Republicans should have no problem with removing their statues. Right?
It IS nice to see Steve Kelley acknowledge America’s racist past, though. That should probably be included in history classes.
It’s ALSO nice to see him acknowledge that modern Democrats don’t defend this stuff just because the racists were in the same party. Republicans do that.
In the word Knight there is one silent ‘K’. In knock there are two silent ’k’s’. In Democrat there are three silent ’k’s.
Someone seems to think that Republicans are racist (and I won’t rule out there are some), however, I posit that the Democrats are the most racist of all. It is called ‘low expectations’ and that is what Democrats think of others, it is part of their doctrine.
