I AM DEPLORABLE.
NEVER CRIMINAL HILLARY (S-NY)
I quite agree, but it certainly didn't occur without a great deal of pressure from the Republican Party.
Since that time the Democrats have been painting the Republicans as "racists", and many new Democrats appear to have bought into that idea. These people, while probably being quite decent in many other areas, are not terribly bright.
Using the parties of the past as a pro, or con, for something, or someone, or trying to compare them to the parties today isn't a proper use of history.
Eat me, drink me, love me;
Laura make much of me
