The Dimocrats can say anything they want about their history over the past 175 years that includes the spawning of the KKK as their enforcement arm against Republicans and freed slaves, the laws excluding Chinese women from the US, the Japanese internment camps in WWII, the Dixecrats who fought against civil rights, the Dimocrat governors like George Wallace who blocked young black men and women from attending a public university. They can say that all those things were in the past and they are now oh so different. But then you see the horrible things said about Sarah Palin and her family and even the President using the disgusting sexual expression “teabagger” to ridicule not only a majority of Americans who question the direction he is taking our country but also ridicules a seminal event in our Nation’s history that led to the American Revolution. The Dimocrats have a sad history of ridicule, name calling, violence and suppression of fellow Americans. I am a former Democrat who is repulsed by what I see in their behavior.
