        The Inconvenient Truth About the Democratic Party

        Did you know that the Democratic Party defended slavery, started the Civil War, founded the KKK, and fought against every major civil rights act in U.S. history? Watch as Carol Swain, professor of political science at Vanderbilt University, shares the inconvenient history of the Democratic Party.

          So you're saying that other Presidents, ones that were Generals even, held Military Parades that weren't on the 4th of July, one of the appropriate days for such events to occur? What sort of tinpot dictatorship were we that the military was turned out by the President just because......

            Well, in at least the cases of JFK and Eisenhower, military parades were held as part of their inauguration...

            It's amazing that the streets could take hundreds of tanks driving on them in the 50's and 60's but are too fragile for that today in Dirty City...

            • Trump's 4th of July 'celebtration' was a waste of aviation gasoline and money. The inauguration bill hasn't been paid yet and I wonder who got stuck with the bill for this abortion?

              The president also proved he has no idea of the nation's history, talking about airports during the War of the Revolution and other gaffs, then blaming them on the teleprompter.

              He's a rube, pure and simple and displays nothing to be admired.
              We are not now that strength which in old days
              Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
              Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
              To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

                • Get over yourself. Trump screwed up and the parade was nothing more than an egocentric event for himself. If you noticed, the service chiefs, with the exception of the Coast Guard, sent their deputies and didn't participate. Sending a message?

                    I found the whole event to be roughly the equivalent to the opening of around 5 NASCAR races combined. Considering that those flight hours were logged, and the US puts a lot of flight hours into its pilots, the fuel costs were really negligible since the hours could be logged for training both in general flight operations and close formation flying. Certainly far more money is spent every November in Afghanistan in flying in a C17 full of beer to Bagram for the Birthday Ball so every Marine can have their 2 beers (which happens EVERY YEAR, I worked the flight both CONUS and In Country, and may have been privy to the SEALs 'borrowing' a pair of 463L pallets of Bud Light after the ball was over but that's classified ).

                    As for the troll value of the event, that was priceless. The Left just keeps giving and giving in their endless string of being offended and angry at everything and everyone, and the ludicrousness of their behavior was in full effect.

                      There's conservative -- and then there's conservative. Case in point: Richard Brevard Russell Jr was through and through a white supremacist (though never a Klan member, at least not to the best of my knowledge.) He spent his entire career using his considerable legislative skill to block any kind of civil rights legislation, including legislation that would have banned lynching on the Federal level. And yet, as both governor and later US Senator for Georgia, Russell was a "New Deal Democrat": supported expanded public universities and lower levels of public education, school lunch, aid for farmers, more agricultural research -- a number of genuinely progressive programs that FDR introduced to the national political debate during the Great Depression. Russell's advocacy for such progressive programs was not halfhearted, but genuine, and continued throughout his career. In short, he was progressive when it came to Caucasians -- and conservative when it came to Negroes. Think of it as à la carte ideologies. In the end, it was all predicated not on any kind of logical or ethical stance, but on identity group interest.

                      Or the more common word for it is "hypocrisy."
                      Absolutely. Not arguing racism is a Republican only failing. Both sides have their racist. I'm just saying that historically, the clan has always been a Conservative organization. The idea that the clan was somehow liberal is really just putting on blinders, and trying to make excuses for their support.

                      I'm also not arguing that the KKK was, at one point, a democratic organization. My main point is trying to say their members of the Democratic party is just ignoring the facts. But hey, Trump doesn't care for facts, why should anyone on this board.

                      Conservatives in the U.S. won't be happy until Jim Crow returns and "White Heterosexual Only" signs are legalized.

                          Let's hope so. Or course, the bar is very low on that scale because or Trump.
