Yeah, I saw that one, too. Bot boychik is a little mixed up there. He forgot what troll account he was tweeting from, too. George or Ian? 😂

I was going to make a comment like 'when will they pull Dukes of Hazard off the air' - giant confederate flag on car that's called 'General Lee'. Like they pulled Gone with the Wind*. Then I looked up Dukes of Hazard to just make sure they hadn't actually pulled it yet to find . . . they pulled it in 2015 because of the flag.

'Dukes of Hazzard' Star Rips TV Land for Dropping Show: "Can't We All Just Watch TV?"

'Dukes of Hazzard' pulled from screens over Confederate flag row

Dukes of Hazard is still streaming, though. Wait, no, you can rent or buy it. It's not on one of the streaming services.
JustWatch


* 'Gone with the Wind' pulled from HBO Max until it can return with 'historical context'

Be informed at least that the history of the democrat party in the U.S. is that they were the slaveholders who fought the Civil War to preserve this institution. We fought a war where 600k+ died to sort this out in the 1860s. Almost all KKK members were democrats, almost all slaveholders were democrats, and all Confederates were democrats. Democrats are responsible for the Jim Crow Laws, opposing the civil rights movement until the late 60's and the vast majority of racism in this country until recent times when its vastly reduced. Abraham Lincoln, the man who freed the slaves, was the founder of the Republican party.

And this matters how in the face of the current stance of the respective parties? Were Abraham Lincoln alive today he most certainly wouldn't be a part of Donald Trump's Republican Confederate Party.

The whole world doesn't revolve around Donald Trump, the U.S. has a rich history outside of the 3 1/2 years he's been president.

The KKK was not started, nor exclusive to Democrats. Yes, Dixiecrats were racist af. Yes, the Dem party, like all American parties, being predominantly led by white men has had to tackle institutional racism from within, and that work is far from over.

Since the 60’s, however, the Democrats have moved away from racism and toward inclusiveness while Republicans have embraced racism and fundamentalism to avoid facing a more liberal electorate. In the wake of W’s admin, the GOP did internal studies and discovered that they were hemorrhaging support among the growing minority segments of the electorate. Instead of adapting their policies away from the billionaire class toward more socially balanced priorities, they doubled down on voter suppression and white nationalism.

This propaganda bullshit doesn’t fool anyone with a functioning brain. But racist muppets gonna spew.

KKK was all Democrat because it was formed from resentful ex confederate southerners who were all democrats, this is american history where i come from, i'm a yankee, name a single republican who owned slaves. By the way I like to remind my European friends who brought the slave to north america, as long as we were a nation every effort was made to get rid of the institution.

Jesus you muppets cannot even google. Ulysses S. Grant owned slaves you ignorant fuck.

But more to the point that history has nothing to do with the current political structure. Only the GOP carries water and employs white nationalists *right now.*

If you found one republican who owned slaves does that mean 99.99999% of slaveholders weren't democrats? And doesn't that matter?
