According to liberals it is time to ban Democrats if
you use their arguments.
The liberals have been saying that the confederate flag should not
fly in South Carolina or anywhere else. The reason the liberals give is
that it represents slavery because it was the flag of the confederate
states in their fight to continue slavery. The Confederate flag led the
South (the Confederate states) in the Civil War against the North (the
Union forces). So the Confederate flag is therefore a symbol in support
for slavery and should be banned and no longer flown.
However, the liberals have conveniently left out a much greater
symbol of support for the Confederate states in their "fight to continue
slavery". That symbol being the Democratic party the liberals are so at
home with. The Democrats were the leaders of the south and fought
against the Republican north led by President Abraham Lincoln,
Republican from Illinois. After the war and when Lincoln was shot and
killed, a Democrat (the vice-president) became president, Andrew Johnson
of North Carolina. The Republican Congress tried to remove Johnson from
office in an impeachment vote and trial.
In the South, after defeat, Republicans were placed in office to
begin reconstruction. When elections were again held in the Southern
states, Democrats most often won and the Confederate flag was again
flown over state houses. For many years the Democrats in the southern
states supported the Confederate flag as part of the heritage of
So why today have the liberals made an issue of the Confederate
flag? Why the Confederate flag and not the leading party of the
Confederacy? The answer is obvious to anyone following the Democrats
today. The party isn't going to condemn themselves, because the issue of
the flag is about uniting fellow Democrats in an election year. The flag
is being used to create fear and play what is known as the "race card"
by fueling the flames of racism. The Democrats are trying to frighten
black voters to continue to support liberal candidates that all in
unison condemn the flag and "those" that support it. The Democrats are
creating a wedge issue and a "us verses them" campaign to rally the
If the Democrats want to ban the Confederate flag, then they should
ban their own party which supported slavery and fought to keep slavery.
The Democrats don't need any agreement from Republicans or Southerners
or any court to ban their party. All the have to do is close the door
behind them after shutting the lights and reregister in another party or
as independents. So it is time the Democrats do the right thing and
listen to their own arguments if they want to practice what they preach,
and end that terrible symbol of slavery, the Democrats own party.
