The line in the story that caught my eye: "Republicans accused the legislation of being an overreach by the federal government and encroaching on states' rights."

I then noted that the three GOP lawmakers who opposed the bill are all from the South.

That's not a coincidence...



It’s not a coincidence. The southern lawmakers are the great grandchildren of slaveowning plantation profiteers, who wanted to have “states rights“ to decide if it was appropriate to own another human being and force them into slavery. The same people who said that poll taxes were OK. Or segregated seating on a bus. Or whites only water fountains.

Joan will argue that these things were done by Democrats. But that’s a complete bullshit argument. The right wing fascists, bigoted racist sexist homophobic elements, in the South are all deep in the red state. And they show their true colors. And at least 40% of the population has no problem with that. About the same percentage that supported Hitler in Germany.

Poor Stevie was voted out of office, but I’m sure he can replace his title of Congressman/Representative with some other title, like Grand Wizard.

  "...Joan will argue that these things were done by Democrats. But that’s a complete bullshit argument..."

  Were the persons not elected Democrats? Would you like the list of names?

The President who took the United States to war, in our Civil War, Abraham Lincoln, was/is a Republican.

  The persons, all elected Democrats, who supported and defended the KuKluxKlan were Democrats, not Republicans, and the persons who created
the JimCrow Era, post Civil War, were:  wait for it:   Elected Democrats.

Please advise if you have some historical record that they were not Democrats.

Democrats held a Convention in New York City I believe, attended by KKK delegates in their pointed head white and other color KKK robes!

Is this Not True?  Of course it is true.

  It is inconvenient for current Democrats to admit their own Partys' history,
and tearing down all the statues Democrats voted to erect, will not erase your
Partys' history.

  As AlGore may say: It is a inconvenient fact.

Things have changed since those things happened,  Joan, haven't you heard? The GOP is doing all those things now.

Not really.

It was a longstanding myth that the 1924 Democratic National Convention, held at New York City's Madison Square Garden, was packed with Klansmen dressed in full regalia.

In fact, the myth was so prevalent that Wikipedia included it in it's article on the 1924 Democratic Convention -- for over 12 years.

The myth stems from a single line in a NY Daily News reporter's article about the convention. In response to claims that the convention was packed with Klan representatives, he satirically joked about seeing Klansmen everywhere. About 80 years that crack was take out of context, and taken as the truth.

I mean, I don't see a lot of hoods and white robes here, do you?



Meanwhile, Klansmen were present at the 1924 Republican National Convention, held about a month previous.

Inconvenient truths, indeed!

The fucking GOP votes for it, endorses it, enforces it, perpetuates it, makes it part of the party platform, waves the fascist flags, waves the Confederate flags, defends Confederate monuments. And then they run and say “but it was all the 19th Century Democrats.” What a bunch of small cock shit eating cowards... I’m so sick to death of their cowardice. Own it. Eat it. Put it on your bumper stickers. You’re doing it anyway. Today’s Democrats have absolutely nothing to do with that, and haven’t since about 1965.  









Fuck the fascists.  And fuck Donald Trump.

The link between poverty and crime is well documented. That does not mean all poor people are ciminals, but it does explain the frustration (and sometimes hunger & basic needs) that lead to crime.  I suspect this old geezer's primary motivation was his own bigotry.

Crazed Republican Congressman Accosts AOC on Her Way to Work

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was ascending the steps of the Capitol for a vote on Monday night when she was personally accosted by a Republican colleague. Representative Ted Yoho of Florida approached Ocasio-Cortez on the steps with aggressive, insulting comments about some remarks she made earlier this month connecting poverty and crime, according to the Hill.

Yoho allegedly told Ocasio-Cortez, “You are out of your freaking mind,” and that she was “disgusting.” Ocasio-Cortez responded that Yoho was being “rude” before continuing up the steps. As Yoho was making his way down, he allegedly said “fucking bitch” as they parted ways. The exchange was overheard by a reporter.

Yoho was apparently incensed about statements Ocasio-Cortez recently made during a virtual town hall with the mothers of Ramarley Graham and Eric Garner about a recent spike in crime in New York City amid the coronavirus, in which she argued that unemployment and poverty were partly to blame, and more policing was not the answer. Fox News and other conservative outlets have seized upon the remarks, claiming that Ocasio-Cortez was making excuses for violent crime.

Another of Ocasio-Cortez’s colleagues was present for the altercation: Representative Roger Williams of Texas. He told the Hill that he had not overheard the exchange. “I was actually thinking, as I was walking down the stairs, I was thinking about some issues I’ve got in my district that need to get done.” He claimed ignorance of what Yoho and Ocasio-Cortez had said. “I don’t know what their topic was,” he claimed. “There’s always a topic, isn’t there?”

But in a tweet on Tuesday morning, Ocasio-Cortez accused Williams of having “blatantly lied.” “You were yelling at me too,” she wrote, “about ‘throwing urine.’”

Ocasio-Cortez is used to confrontation on the floor of the House, in the form of heated exchanges over legislation, and in hearings, where she is known for intense, pointed questioning. But “that kind of confrontation hasn’t ever happened to me — ever,” she told the Hill. “I’ve never had that kind of abrupt, disgusting kind of disrespect levied at me … In all these intense news cycles, I have never, ever been treated that way by another member before. I’m frankly quite taken aback.”

In her tweet about Yoho, she wrote, “I never spoke to Rep. Yoho before he decided to accost me on the steps of the nation’s Capitol yesterday. Believe it or not, I usually get along fine w/ my GOP colleagues. We know how to check our legislative sparring at the committee door.”

“But hey,” she added, “‘b*tches’ get stuff done.”

Yoho has served in Congress since 2013 and is not seeking reelection in 2020. He is a member of the Tea Party Caucus, voted against making lynching a federal hate crime, and is anti-choice. When asked about the incident, Yoho told the Hill, “No comment.”
