Connecticut Republicans Give Dems A Taste Of Their Own Medicine
Democrats are tearing down American history practically overnight. Libs have taken down numerous protesters claiming they were evil slavery supporters. But it's not just confederate statues that have faced their wrath. Protesters have taken down Washington, Jefferson, Columbus, and they have been angrily eyeing the emancipation statue, which was bought and paid for by freed slaves. So when Connecticut Dems had a statue of Christopher Columbus taken down, Republicans across the aisle decided enough was enough, these Dems need a taste of their own medicine. So they brought forth a resolution to push Dems to change their party name since it is associated with slavery.
"Republican Party Chairman J.R. Romano held a Zoom call to say that Democratic leaders are hypocrites to support the removal of historic monuments.
“If we are to hold Christopher Columbus accountable for over 500 years after the fact, it’s our duty and our moral obligation to hold the Democratic Party accountable,‘' Romano said."
And that's why CT Republicans came up with a resolution for the Democratic party to change their name.
"The resolution came the same day that a Christopher Columbus statue in the Nutmeg State’s capital of Hartford was removed because, according to The Associated Press, critics portrayed him as a “as a symbol of white supremacy.”
- Was the driving force behind the Confederacy’s secession from the Union — to protect the institution of slavery;
- Tried desperately to block the “Reconstruction Amendments” to the Constitution, which were written to ensure the slaves freed by the Civil War had full rights of citizenship;
- Were behind the organized terror of the Ku Klux Klan in the Civil War’s aftermath and instituted the rigid segregation of the Jim Crow era.
- Was opposed to the civil rights movement even into post-World War II America."
This is great it really sticks it to the Dems. I hope the rest of the GOP will take note and do the same to draw some of this unjustified wrath on Dems too.
