Harry Reid: Those Who Oppose ObamaCare Are Pro-Slavery

Reid is either a complete historical moron or he just won’t let facts get in the way of an imbecilic rant.

Speaking on the Senate floor this morning, Reid said “Instead of joining us on the right side of history, all the Republicans can come up with is, ‘slow down, stop everything, let’s start over.’ If you think you’ve heard these same excuses before, you’re right.”

He continued “When this country belatedly recognized the wrongs of slavery, there were those who dug in their heels and said ‘slow down, it’s too early, things aren’t bad enough‘ … He continued: “When women spoke up for the right to speak up, they wanted to vote, some insisted they simply, slow down, there will be a better day to do that, today isn’t quite right.”

Democrats opposed abolition of slavery. Abraham Lincoln, the Republican Civil War president signed the Emancipation Proclamation, freeing the slaves. Dems also opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Robert Byrd (D-WVa):  During the 1940s, Byrd was a recruiter for the Ku Klux Klan in West Virginia.  Byrd was also one of the DEMOCRATS that tried to prevent the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Bill with a filibuster.

George Wallace,: 4x Democratic Governor of Alabama between 1963 and 1987. Avowed segregationist.

Bull Connor (D-AL): Member of the Ku Klux Klan, staunch advocate of racial segregation. Public Safety Commissioner of Birmingham, Alabama, in the 1960s. Famous for using fire hoses and police dogs against civil rights marchers.

Theodore Bilbo (D-MS):  Sought to roll back constitutional guarantees in order to deny blacks the vote.  Bilbo also called for the deportation of black Americans and authored a book titled “Take Your Choice: Separation or Mongrelization.”

I see a pattern there.

The Democrats have resorted to calling the American people “nazis”, “evil mongers”, “racist”, and a variety of other epithets for standing up against this tyrannical jack-booted regime. Flinging the race card is a pathetic, crude act of desperation.

Stay classy, Harry.

    You might as well go the whole nine yards (27 feet of belted .50 Cal.). You’d end up doing hard time; make it count . . .

    You overlooked a few Democrat stalwarts: Governor Lester Maddox, D-GA, who preferred ax handles to fire hoses; Sen. Albert Gore, Sr., who led the Democrat filibuster against the 1964 Voting Rights Bill, and his colleague Sen. Estes Kefauver, D-AR, who was Bill Clinton’s political mentor.

    To pick a nit, the Emancipation Proclamation freed only those slaves in states “currently in rebellion;” i.e. the Confederacy. It said nothing about slaves held in the North, of which there were a considerable number in several states. But Lincoln had to contend with a Democrat-controlled Congress that hated him, so it was probably the most he could do. Applying it to the Union would have created a serious possibility of impeachment.

      You are certainly correct about the Emancipation technicality. Another point is that Lincoln’s first and foremost priority was to preserve the Union. If that meant delaying the abolition of slavery in the North, that’s what he would do.
      In any case, the Democrats are ass deep in twisting history to suit their narrative. Reid’s execrable comments are just the latest example of what the Democrats think of Americans who justifiably oppose more government trespassing in their lives.
      Gawd, I swear if I ever came across Reid, Durbin, Pelosi, Hoyer, or any one of the other mealy-mouthed assclowns who hide behind their political podium and insult folks like us, I’d end up in jail for breaking their jaw.
