Why The Democratic Party Should Change Its Name

Washington, D.C. (Accredited Times) – Sorry, Donald Trump, the Charlottesville terror attack has backfired right in your fat, orange face.

In the wake of the Charlottesville terror attack, progressives have torn down dozens of racist monuments across the country.  Duke University removed a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee.  The University of Texas at Austin likewise removed statues of Confederate Generals Robert E. Lee and Albert Sidney Johnston, along with monuments to Confederate Postmaster General John Reagan and Governor James Stephen Hogg.  Progressives even destroyed a statue of President Abraham Lincoln and spray-painted an expletive on the Lincoln Memorial.  Lincoln, of course, was a racist who repeatedly used the N-word.

Now it’s time for another long-overdue change:  the Democratic Party must officially change its name.

Sadly, the Democratic Party has an unfortunate history of racism.  President Thomas Jefferson founded the Democratic Party.  However, as African-American leader Al Sharpton has pointed out, Thomas Jefferson was a racist:

President Andrew Jackson also played an instrumental role in creating the Democratic Party.  Jackson, however, was even worse than Jefferson — which is why President Barack Hussein Obama kicked Jackson off of the $20 bill in favor of African-American Harriet Tubman.

The first progressive Democrat elected to the Presidency was Woodrow Wilson.  Wilson segregated the federal government and said: “There are no government positions for Negroes in the South.  A Negro’s place [is] in the corn field.”

All of the Confederates belonged to or supported the Democratic Party.  Confederate President Jefferson Davis was a Democrat.  So was Confederate Vice President Alexander Stephens.

All of the noted segregationists in the 1960s also belonged to or supported the Democratic Party — including Alabama Governor George Wallace, Birmingham Commissioner Theophilus “Bull” Connor, Georgia Governor Lester Maddox, Arkansas Senator J. William Fulbright (Bill Clinton’s mentor), and Senate Majority Leader Robert Byrd (Hillary Clinton’s mentor).

A picture of Hillary Clinton kissing Democrat Senate Majority Leader Robert Byrd, a segregationist who belonged to the Ku Klux Klan.

In 1944, Byrd wrote a letter to segregationist Mississippi Senator Theodore Bilbo, also a Democrat, stating: “I shall never fight in the armed forces with a negro by my side … Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.”

In 1946, Byrd similarly wrote a letter to the Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, stating: “The Klan is needed today as never before, and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia and in every state in the nation.”

The Democratic Party made Byrd its Senate Majority Leader from 1987 to 1989.  He served as President Pro Tempore in the Senate from 2007 until 2010.  After Byrd’s death in 2010, West Virginia Democrats placed a statue of Byrd right in front of the West Virginia State Capitol.

Many whites are openly racist and support the Confederacy.

As progressives, we simply cannot allow any symbolic vestige of racism to remain.  It’s time to change the Democratic Party’s name.  We need something that more accurately reflects our political positions.

I vote for Communist Party USA.

Great article BLM! I think we should call it the Anti White Male Party, or No Party For White Males. I think fundamentally that’s what being a modern Democrat is all about don’t you think?

Being a Democrat used to be about being racist, but today it’s about being anti-racist. Just like being a liberal used to be about being liberal, but not it’s about being anti-liberal.

Why not just formalize the NAACP into a political party?

How about the “Accredited Peoples Party”?

What the author fails to mention in this article about the history of the democratic party is this is actually about the Republican party. There was a “Big switch” that occurred and all of the racist Democrats became republicans and all the republicans who fought against slavery and oppression became Democrats.
So just to be clear, those KKK, Jim Crow, minority lynching democrats are now Republicans and Democrats are who freed the slaves.
Just like communism used to be bad but now it is good.
So no need to change. There are a few who need better educated about the “BIG SWITCH”

I prefer simply ‘the Party’. It’s closer to Orwell’s vision and should also appeal to the younger vote who are basically looking for a great time and being cool.

We definitely need to lower the voting age and give more power to school kids who are learning all about social justice issues from a variety of sources.
