While their party was dividing the country over the issue of slavery they were also fighting the newly formed Republican party that had six of their 9 planks in their first platform designed to destroy slavery, give equal rights and voting rights to recently liberated slaves. It was the Democrats who wanted to divide and destroy the country, just to keep slavery alive.
If the left wants to go back to the time of slavery and destroy everything that stands as a reminder of their white supremacist causes, have at it. It’s their history. It’s their battle flag, it’s their heroes, their generals, their leaders. You don’t even have to go back to the time of slavery and see that same racist, segregationist mentality that is part of the Democrats political DNA. Can you say “Robert Byrd”, or “President Woodrow Wilson?”By Nina May
