A group of Republican House members, led by Rep. Louis Gohmert of Texas, introduced a resolution Thursday that would effectively ban the Democratic Party from the House or force a party name change over past slavery ties -- a response to the recent efforts to remove tributes to past members of the Confederacy from the halls of Congress.


It specifically cites the Democratic Party platform's support for slavery between 1840 and 1856, and other racist actions by party members through the early-to-mid 1900s, before calling on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to "remove any items that names, symbolizes or mentions any political organization or party that has ever held a public position that supported slavery or the Confederacy" from the House and its properties. The resolution also says such a party "shall either change its name or be barred from participation in the House of Representatives."

Gohmert, in a statement accompanying the bill, told Democrats they should rebrand to "avoid triggering" anyone.

"As outlined in the resolution, a great portion of the history of the Democratic Party is filled with racism and hatred," Gohmert said. "Since people are demanding we rid ourselves of the entities, symbols, and reminders of the repugnant aspects of our past, then the time has come for Democrats to acknowledge their party’s loathsome and bigoted past, and consider changing their party name to something that isn’t so blatantly and offensively tied to slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination, and the Ku Klux Klan."

He added: "To avoid triggering innocent bystanders by the racist past of the Democratic Party, I would suggest they change their name. That is the standard to which they are holding everyone else, so the name change needs to occur."

I have hoped for them changing from Democrat to the Liberal party for years. The republicans could quickly counter by changing themselves to the Retarded party.

I have hoped for a name change of the democrat party as well,but I want an honest name that really brands them.I was thinking Communist hate America baby killing minority pandering piece of schit **** stains Party...........Too long?

I say we do away with the name Republican altogether.I'd much prefer a fracture here where you wear the label that you represent........They would be either Conservatives or Ignorant F*cks Sitting on the Wrong Side of the Aisle.


BTW if this post has offended anyone here.........Go **** yourself repeatedly and often

Congress has wasted an absurd amount of time on the most ridiculous of topics. Yet, we still continue operate via a continuing resolution because they don’t want to go on record for anything.

I swear Republicans can be just as big numbskulls as the Democrats. If people think that Republicans were not racists and white supremacists, they need to study real American history instead of believing everything some dumb politician says.

Thanks Frank, I'm not a conservative, certainly not a neoconservative and I'm not a Libtard, I'm a Ancap libertarian and all for a friendly battle when it comes.
One thing that really pisses me off is when some politician of whatever party like Rep. Louis Gohmert starts spouting off stupid ahistorical propaganda as a lame partisan attack. I'll agree that Pelosi is a horrible reprehensible person, but to claim the current Democratic Party (Party of Marx) is anything resembling the 19th Century Democratic Party (Party of Jefferson) and to insinuate that the Antebellum Democratic Party or the Confederacy had a monopoly on supporting slavery, bigotry, racism or white supremacy is just too dumb to be believed. I guess Louis Gohmert, as old as he is has never made any attempt to study the real history of his own Republican Party. He who lives in a glass house shouldn't throw stones.

You mean this place has been suffering from only two perspectives for a long time? It must get incredibly tedious and predictable. OK, maybe I can rock the boat from time to time.
Just don't hit on mw Frank, I'm not that kind of guy.Shame on you

me either, but we're very immature here.

we do get some fringe action here and there. but most consider themselves well on the right.

not sure I've heard of your specific type of anarchist though...libertarian. perhaps I don't realize how obvious it might be?

I say I'm lib, I've been registered to vote for over 40 years and never as a dem or repube, though I have crossed for primaries if I thought it mattered.
Friends say I'm a left of center libertarian (I live in MA, guess what they are) because I will support an unpopular opinion due to my efforts to single out issues and avoid litmus loyalty tests.

But yeah, more often than not I'm liberal...ish
