Since Nancy Pelosi insists on getting rid of statues of former members of the Confederacy, Louie Gohmert is insisting on taking it a step further. Gohmert, along with fellow House Republicans, “introduced a resolution Thursday” that would force Democrats to change their Party’s name.

Specifically, the resolution would “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.” To stick it to the Democrats further, Gohmert issued a statement. Here’s what it said (in part):

As outlined in the resolution, a great portion of the history of the Democratic Party is filled with racism and hatred. 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.

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.

Rep. Gohmert was just getting started. He delivered this speech on the House floor:

Rep. Gohmert read this into the record, too:

Whereas, The 14th Amendment, giving full citizenship to freed slaves, passed in 1868 with 94% Republican support and 0% Democrat support in Congress; the 15th Amendment, giving freed slaves the right to vote, passed in 1870 with 100% Republican support and 0% Democrat support in Congress.

Just for good measure, Rep. Gohmert included this information:

Whereas, The 1924 Democratic National Convention convened in New York City at Madison Square Garden; the convention is commonly known as the “Klan Bake” due to the overwhelming influence of the Ku Klux Klan in the Democratic Party. 

Whereas, In 1964 the Democratic Party led a 75-calendar-day filibuster against the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

Just like Joe Biden, the Democrat Party is racist to its roots. Here are some of Biden’s greatest hits:

  1. You can’t walk into a 7/11 or Dunkin’ Donuts without hearing a slight Indian accent.
  2. I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American (Obama) who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.
  3. Unless we do something about this, my children are going to grow up in a jungle, the jungle being a racial jungle.
  4. That people would come to him and talk about what was happening to them at home in terms of foreclosures, in terms of bad loans that were being … I mean these Shylocks who took advantage of, um, these women and men while overseas.

Then there’s this:

Biden has also had many friendships with infamous bigots and racists, including:

  1. George Wallace, a Democrat politician who served as Alabama’s governor and is remembered for declaring, “segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever!” Biden said the Democrats needed another candidate just like George Wallace.
  2. Biden also effusively praised Sen. John Stennis of Mississippi, another Democrat segregationist, calling him “a man of character.”
  3. Biden also cultivated a fawning friendship with James Eastland, yet another racist, segregationist Democrat senator. Eastland called segregation “God’s Law” and repeatedly referred to blacks as an “inferior race.”

There’s more than ample proof that Democrats are the Party of Bigots and Racists. Finally, what have Democrats done in the last 25 years to improve the lives of African-Americans? Did they push for the passage of the First Step Act? Nope. That was the GOP. Did Democrats push for permanent funding of HBCUs? Nope. That was President Trump.
