Who’s on First? The Mush of O’Donnell, Jr.
Here’s the picture which I was presented by a well meaning sweet young lassie who has been ill informed by this man:
And I think – hmm, so this is Liberals v. Republicans, eh? So, who exactly did these things, this “liberal” wonders vs. “conservative” – um, horrors? Perhaps. Obstructionism? How terrible are the conservatives on these things. And who was who?
Women got the right to first in the 1910s and 20s. Who voted for it and against it?
From Wikipedia comes this: The key vote came on June 4, 1919, when the Senate approved the amendment by 56 to 25 after four hours of debate, during which Democratic Senators opposed to the amendment filibustered to prevent a roll call until their absent Senators could be protected by pairs. The Ayes included 36 (82%) Republicans and 20 (54%) Democrats. The Nays comprised 8 (18%) Republicans and 17 (46%) Democrats. It was ratified by sufficient states in 1920, the Nineteenth Amendment, which prohibited state or federal sex-based restrictions on voting.
So – Republicans brought Women the right to vote. And Democrats opposed it. There’s so much more about this at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Women%27s_suffrage#United_States – virtually all the original Pro-Woman people were Republicans or “Liberty” something or other. I And the Democrats? They were dead set against it. Wilson ignored major pleas and demonstrations – yes, the “Progressive Liberal Democrat” Wilson – Please, Mr. O’Donnell, Jr. – know what you’re talking about.
Who did get African-Americans the right to vote? Well, surely it was “Liberals” – but those “Liberals” were not Democrats that’s for sure. To argue that Democrat “Liberals” in some contrast to Republican “Conservatives” were FOR the African-American anything is so insulting to the intelligence I can’t fathom such mush. The Democratic Party was the party of slavery. It was the party of Jim Crow. It was the party of the KKK (Democratic Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia was a Imperial Klaxon or something – go look it up.) It was the part of NO! For decades Democrats fought African-American everything. Martin Luther King was a Republican – http://www.humanevents.com/2006/08/16/why-martin-luther-king-was-republican/
Truly – if you wish to argue that “Liberals” brought these things – I’m for it – but, then, recognize that who the Liberals were – they were the Republicans.
Or, if you insist that “conservatives” and “Republicans” are the same – then you must agree that it was “conservatives” that brought you these two things.
I don’t care which you pick – but – Democrats, as liberals or conservatives – were against the things this man O’Donnell Jr. likes – and the Republicans – as liberals or conservative– were for the things he likes.
Now, it’s true that there’s been some reordering of the political name game – and one could argue that for some odd reason all the party members switched – so that every Democrat Conservative against Woman and African-Americans joined the Republican party – and that every Liberal Republican of a sudden switched to Democrat – but that would be silly.
No, what happened is that the two words migrated – by the incessant harping by people like O’Donnell who live in this binary world – instead of recognizing that the Democratic party has three major stages in it’s history: 1) beginning to 1980 – a racist hellhole – and then, the Communists and Socialists took it over. They got the committee parts. Meanwhile – the “Progressives” – like Wilson and Margaret Sanger were simple out and out racists – this is common knowledge – Planned Parenthood was set up to eugenically cleanse the earth of the brown folks. Egad, learn thy history: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Margaret_Sanger
So, the Democrats and Progressives – conservatives and utopians joined together from 1910 to 1980 – now, the conservatives – if that’s what there were – and according to O’Donnell that’s what they were – were racist eugenicists – charming folks. Today, they’re just Marxists and socialists – as here – http://www.tysknews.com/Depts/gov_philosophy/dsa_members.htm
So, “conservatives” morphed to “progressives” morphed to “socialists” – and all three are murderous rapacious anti-liberty nutjobs – and that’s the Democratic Party – oh well, Mr. O’Donnell.
I don’t care what labels you use – or fiddle with – but let us speak truth about the ones we got and you do use.
Meanwhile, the Republican party, I will well grant you – has been taken over in major part by Fundamentalist Christians – who make up roughly 15% of the population. And so, my political choice today, Mr. O’Donnell – is not between Liberal and Conservative – or Democrat or Republican – but which power mad idiot with an old book written by a bushy bearded old man I should look to.
And let me tell you – it’s neither – both of these parties must be jettisoned. And the arrant mush of Mr. O’Donnell Jr. too. Egad, how wrong can one be?
