Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) introduced a bill calling for the Democratic Party to change its name due to its history of supporting slavery, the Confederacy, Jim Crow, and the KKK; plus, the latest in conservative politics.
#CancelDemocrats: Bill introduced urging Democrats to change their name based on their bigoted past or be banned
Amid the cancel culture that has been overwhelmingly embraced and championed by Democrats, Republican Texas Representative Louie Gohmert introduced a bill on Thursday that gives the politically correct Democratic Party a heaping dose of its own medicine and a bitter pill to swallow.
Gohmert’s legislation is calling on the Democratic Party to change its name based on the history that ties it to slavery, the Confederacy, Jim Crow, and the KKK.
Rep. Gohmert pointed to the hypocrisy of the Democratic Party, justifying the measure by pointing out that Democrats should be held to “the standard to which they are holding everyone else, so the name change needs to occur,” the Daily Wire reported.
Gohmert tweeted on Wednesday: “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 KKK. #CancelDemocrats.”
Gohmert points out the hypocrisy of Pelosi removing House Speaker photos – all were Democrats
On the House floor, Rep. Gohmert called out House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for ordering the removal of four previous speakers of the House who served in the Confederacy, but pointed out that all four men or Democrats.
“Resolved that the speaker of the House of Representatives shall remove any item that named symbolizes or mentions any political organization or party that has ever held a public position that supported slavery or the Confederacy from any area within the House wing of the Capitol or any House office building and shall donate such item or symbol to the Library of Congress, and two, that any political organization or party that has ever held a public position that supported slavery of the Confederacy shall either change its name or be barred from participation in the House of Representatives,” Gohmert said, then yielded back.
Gohmert reminds Democratic Party of its own loathsome past
“As outlined in the resolution, a great portion of the history of the Democratic Party is filled with racism and hatred,” Gohmert later said in a statement.
“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.”
Fauci warns young people: “You are becoming part of the problem”
The nation’s top infectious disease specialist, Dr. Anthony Fauci, who is part of the US coronavirus task force, is telling young people it is imperative for them to wear facemasks while in public no matter what state their health is in.
“You don’t realize, probably innocently, that you are inadvertently propagating the outbreak,” Dr. Fauci said during an interview with MarketWatch. “You are becoming part of the problem because, even if you get infected without any symptoms, it is likely that you are going to infect someone else.”
“Sooner or later, a vulnerable person gets infected and gets seriously ill, Fauci added. “You should realize that it is your duty and your civic responsibility. You could be hurting someone else.”
