Political trivia: which party supported slavery?
The conservative democrats did. The progressive republicans did not.
Democrats. Irrelevant today.
The Democratic Party was the party of slavery. They were also the party of Jim Crow. The Ku Klux Klan was basically the militant wing of the Democratic Party.
Those were Jeffersonian democrats not jacksonian democrats
Not the same party
Jacksonian... Like Andrew Jackson? He supported slavery heavily.
And? Doesn't mean the party did, or that its the same as Jeffersonian democrats
The party did. Democrats voted for slavery and against anti slavery laws.
That was the party platform! 😂
No, it wasnt, jacksonian democrats didn't come about until after the civil war
"According to Dr. Eric Rauchway , an American History professor at UC Davis, the switch happened somewhere between 1872 and 1936"
Andrew Jackson was before. We aren't even talking about them. We are talking about Democrats.
If you had studied literally any American history you'd already know this
The modern democratic party is the exact opposite of the democratic party of before the civil war
You mean the 6 people that switched? When the south became less racist, it became more Republican. The switch was also because of economic reasons, nor racial reasons.
The switch was because of economic reasons, but with it came social things. Again, not the same parties
You mean Democrats aren't Democrats? They freaking claim that they've always been the party of racial equality.
Its a different democratic party dude.
Tell ya what, to read ANY American history textbooks section on the 1930s and get back to me
Two words for you. Robert. Byrd.
Just read it
1930s is the great depression. It's all about economics. Hell, the New Deal excluded the black community from some of the benefits.
Three more words to consider: J. William Fulbright
Read any political section during the 1930s
So you dont have a rebuttal?
I know the largest shift in voters in history occurred in 1936, because of the shifting parties, and the fact that it actually happened and just about every historians agreement
For economic reasons. Your forgetting that. They never changed on racial.
Yes they did
No they didn't. If they did then why did more Republicans than Democrats vote for the civil rights acts in the 60s?
You're ignoring the efforts from all the other democrats supporting it
That proved my point.
Then you clearly didn't read it
I read the factual part, not the blog.
80% of Republicans supported it. Less then 70% of Democrats did. I'm done for tonight.
Watch Hillary's America. The guy actually did a ton of research.
Gotta love Dinesh D'Souza!
Just like the Obama's america?
He was insanely accurate with Obama's America.
Or do you just not like admitting your wrong?
Yes, it was. Do you have any evidence against it?
