U.S. Rep. Gohmert’s resolution to ban Democrat Party

Republican brilliance shines bright

The old adage, “Turnabout is fair play,” applies, as Texas conservative Republican Congressman Louie Gohmert (impressive bio) introduced this astute resolution July 23, 2020. The resolution is quick reading and will brighten your day. 

Gohmert’s action came a day after passage of a bill supported by hard-left Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi requiring all items that name any political party or organization that supported slavery be removed from the House of Representatives wing of the U.S. Capitol or connected House office buildings.

Rep. Gohmert, a former judge, issued this statement explaining the resolution, calling on Congress to ban any political party or organization that has held a public position supportive of slavery:

“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. As the country watches violent leftists burn our cities, tear down our statues and call upon every school, military base and city street to be renamed, it is important to note that past atrocities these radicals claim to be so violently offensive were largely committed by members in good standing of the Democratic Party. Whether it be supporting the most vile forms of racism or actively working against Civil Rights legislation, Democrats in this country perpetuated these abhorrent forms of discrimination and violence practically since their party’s inception. 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.”

Among the four co-sponsors is conservative Arizona Congressman Andy Biggs, (R-CD-5).

      You’re right! It sounds good, because it is good!

      No surprise, but the local press hasn’t bothered to cover this.

    Congressman Louie Gohmert is a gem. So glad to see Arizona’s Andy Biggs signing on as a co-sponsor. There should be many more!

    God bless our fearless conservatives! They embody the same spirit our nation’s founders did.
    I often think how they would be incredulous at what is going on in America today. They took such risks to give us so much and know nothing hoodlums, who have no concept of history, are working to tear it down and give us the devastation of Marxism instead. America’s public schools are responsible for this. Taxpayers should not be be forced to fund this abysmal lack of education. We need more school choice and the ability for our money to follow the choices we make.

    A name change is a good Start but the total destruction of that party needs to happen. Or the truth of what they are: communist
