Joke or Making a Legislative Point?

Need a Point to Write a Bill!

Every once in a while, there is an article that deserves a blog all on its own. After reading the following article, I thought this was most surely…

one of them!

Article in full:

Any political party that backed slavery at any time would be revoked

The Democrats and the woke left have been constantly trying to cancel people for things they said or did years ago, but now this cancel culture may be coming back to bite them.

Florida state Sen. Blaise Ingoglia has presented SB 1248, which, according to Fox News, is being called the “Ultimate Cancel Act.” The text of the bill says that it would “immediately cancel the filings of a political party, to include its registration and approved status as a political party, if the party’s platform has previously advocated for, or been in support of, slavery or involuntary servitude.”

The law, if passed, would go into effect on July 1, 2023.

This means that any party that had supported slavery at any time in its history would be canceled under the new law, and this is really bad news for the Democrats in Florida.

Prior to the abolition of slavery in 1865, the Democratic Party was the pro-slavery party in the country, whereas the Republican Party was specifically founded as an anti-slavery party.

Thus, if this bill passed, the Democratic Party would be canceled and banned in the state of Florida.

To be clear, this does not mean that the Democrats could not go and form a new party; they just would not be able to run as part of the old Democratic Party.

“The reason behind filing this bill is that I was tired of leftist Democrats canceling people, places, and things for occurrences that happened centuries ago regarding slavery,” Ingoglia told Fox News. “I always thought it was hypocritical that members of the Democrat Party would cancel others under those auspices, fully knowing that under the same metric their party should be canceled itself for years and decades of advocating a pro-slavery position in their own party platform.”

Now, while we may deep down like the idea of the Democrats being canceled and the party being banned, there are several things to be considered, and we need to be cautious about this.

First, based on the statement that Sen. Ingoglia made to Fox News, it seems unlikely that he is actually trying to cancel the Democratic Party, and it is more likely that he is drawing attention to leftist hypocrisy on cancel culture.

Second, even if Ingoglia was serious about this, it is almost certain that this bill would be struck down as unconstitutional by the courts.

Third, even if that bill was passed and not challenged by the courts, it would set a precedent that the Democrats would be more than eager to follow to take their revenge on Republicans.

If this is the precedent that is set, what is to stop Democrats in blue states from doing the same thing to the Republican Party based on opposition to homosexuality and abortion, or their skepticism of the 2020 election and the events of Jan. 6?

In short, we should be very cautious about legislation like this, as it seems like a fun idea on the surface, but could have dangerous implications.

Despite all that, however, it is nice to see that Ingoglia is holding the Democrats accountable for their hypocrisy. For years they have targeted conservatives and ordinary Americans for things in their past without considering their own actions.

Even if nothing comes of the bill, which is likely to happen, at least it will make the Democrats stop and think for a moment about their hypocrisy and the consequences of the cancel culture that they have unleashed.

Was Republican Party founded on “Anti-Slavery?

Answer: YES

Republican Party founded

In Ripon, Wisconsin, former members of the Whig Party meet to establish a new party to oppose the spread of slavery into the western territories. The Whig Party, which was formed in 1834 to oppose the “tyranny” of President Andrew Jackson, had shown itself incapable of coping with the national crisis over slavery.

With the successful introduction of the Kansas-Nebraska Bill of 1854, an act that dissolved the terms of the Missouri Compromise and allowed slave or free status to be decided in the territories by popular sovereignty, the Whigs disintegrated. By February 1854, anti-slavery Whigs had begun meeting in the upper midwestern states to discuss the formation of a new party. One such meeting, in Wisconsin on March 20, 1854, is generally remembered as the founding meeting of the Republican Party.

The Republicans rapidly gained supporters in the North, and in 1856 their first presidential candidate, John C. Fremont, won 11 of the 16 Northern states. By 1860, the majority of the Southern slave states were publicly threatening secession if the Republicans won the presidency. In November 1860, Republican Abraham Lincoln was elected president over a divided Democratic Party, and six weeks later South Carolina formally seceded from the Union. Within six more weeks, five other Southern states had followed South Carolina’s lead, and in April 1861 the Civil War began when Confederate shore batteries under General P.G.T. Beauregard opened fire on Fort Sumter in South Carolina’s Charleston Harbor.

The Civil War firmly identified the Republican Party as the party of the victorious North, and after the war the Republican-dominated Congress forced a “Radical Reconstruction” policy on the South, which saw the passage of the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments to the Constitution and the granting of equal rights to all Southern citizens. By 1876, the Republican Party had lost control of the South, but it continued to dominate the presidency until the election of Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1933.

Did Democrat Party support slavery prior to Civil War?

Answer: YES

The Democratic Party’s History of Slavery, Jim Crow, and the KKK

Social Justice Warriors have a pattern of holding up past sins committed by the United States (and Europeans generally) as if these past sins define who we are today.

Former president Obama once said, “… the legacy of slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination in almost every institution of our lives — you know, that casts a long shadow. And that’s still part of our DNA that’s passed on. We’re not cured of it.”

Hillary Clinton has said, “When I talk about breaking down all the barriers that stand in the way of people’s ambitions and dreams, racism, along with economic issues, educational issues, and all the rest, have to be addressed,” she said. “Otherwise, we are never going to be the nation we should be. We’re never going to overcome our legacy — dating back to slavery, segregation, Jim Crow.”

According to a Georgetown law professor, “all white people are racist” and “all men are sexist.”

An Emory University professor published a letter to white people claiming “… you are racist.”

former Social Justice Warrior talks about his experience within the SJ movement, explains that the SJ movement “promotes white guilt”.

It is standard SJ fare to claim that America (and specifically white Americans) must atone for the past sins of racism. Thus, the institution of America carries the burden of racial guilt.

However, if institutions carry burdens of guilt, then let’s get more specific. It was the Democratic party in the United States that was most responsible for slavery and Jim Crow.

At the time of the Civil War, all slaveholders were Democrats, or at least no one has found an exception at this time. And the Democratic Party was the party of Jim Crow, as well. Although the KKK was not officially aligned with the Democratic party, it consisted of white Democrats who terrorized both white and black Republicans (mostly black ones).

One of the rationales that some Democrats had for slavery was that blacks were unable to take care of themselves, so slavery was actually good for them. This attitude sounds reprehensible today; however, the Democratic Party still treats blacks as if they are unable to stand on their own and require a dependence on government.

Now, some Democrats will say “wait a minute, this isn’t fair, the Democratic Party of today isn’t the same as it was historically!”

However, the United States as a whole isn’t the same as it was historically, either. SJWs who go around browbeating Americans over a history of slavery, the KKK, and Jim Crow can’t then complain when we point out that it was actually the Democratic Party which was most involved in this history.

If a SJW wants us to ignore the racist past of the Democratic Party, fine then, by the same token, we can also ignore the racist past of the United States.

Believe it or not, many Democrats try to pin their own party’s racist past on Republicans. However, this is not supported by the evidence. It is true that many white Southern Democrats have switched parties from Democrat to Republican, and that most black Americans have switched parties from Republican to Democrat. However, the white Southern Democrats who switched to Republican did so as they also became increasingly less racist. The Republican Party has never championed slavery or Jim Crow laws; the Democratic Party did.

“But what about the Southern Strategy?” According to the myth of the Southern Strategy, the Republican Party became racist in order to woo white Southern Democrat voters to their party. Sean Trende has written a well-documented book, The Lost Majority, which effectively debunks this myth. White Southern Democrats began shifting to the Republican Party beginning in 1937-38, primarily over economic interests.

In fact, were it not for the Democrats’ racial politics before 1970, these Southern Democrats would likely have shifted faster to the Republican Party. “The real ‘Southern Strategy’ was the one pursued by the Democrats, especially under FDR, to keep conservative white Southerners in a liberal party.”

However, be that as it may, perhaps reasonable people can all agree that no one needs to feel guilty for past sins of any institution to which we belong, whether that’s the Democratic Party or the United States of America. It is sufficient to favor race-neutral policies in the present.
