    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 Steve Kelley so ignorant of history (or honest enough to be accurate as to historical context) that he does not understand how the parties reversed roles on social justice issues?

    I will acknowledge the evils of my party’s past.

    But today’s Democratic Party is…

    Not the party of the KKKonfederacy

    Not the party of George Wallace

    Not the party of Bull Conner


    and today’s TrumpubliQan cult is…

    Not the party of Lincoln.

    Not the party of Teddy Roosevelt.

    Not the party of Eisenhower.

    Not even the party of McCain or R-money.

    The Democrats’ ugly racist PAST is the Republicans’ ugly racist PRESENT.

    So sad when lies and misdirection are all they have.

    Okay, Kelley. Since you want to be treated as an ignorant flunky, let’s go back to school.

    Once upon a time, the Democratic party was the conservative party that was pro-slavery, pro-racism and pro-anything that was bad for the American people, and the Republican party was the LIBERAL party of Lincoln.

    Then some time went by, some things happened, and eventually, the parties switched ideological sides.

    Only the trolls are dumb enough, or willingly ignorant enough to take your BS at face value.

    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.

    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.

    What a load of bull hockey! Magically the Democrats, the party of slavery, KKK, and Bull Conner suddenly flipped its core principles and became the party of Lincoln, the Great Emanicpater, and the party of the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments. And, the Republicans became the party of slavery, KKK, and Bull Conner. Anyone who believes this a simpleton.

    The South has always been conservative. As the Democrats became more liberal and the Republicans more conservative, the South migrated to the more conservative choice. It didn’t happen all at once. It took many, many years.

    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.

    Ronald Reagan famously said that he didn’t leave the Democratic Party, the Democratic Party left him.

    Maybe Reagan was just following the racism?

    “Historically, the conservative has favored liberty for the higher orders and constraint for the lower orders. What the conservative sees and dislikes in equality, in other words, is not a threat to freedom but its extension. For in that extension, he sees a loss of his own freedom. ‘We are all agreed as to our own liberty,’ declared Samuel Johnson. ‘But we are not agreed as to the liberty of others: for in proportion as we take, others must lose.’” – The Reactionary Mind

    “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.

    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.
