Skip to comments.Obama Dems: Republicans Want 1950s, 1812, Jim Crow, Slavery
Posted on 09/02/2012 6:42:52 PM PDT by chessplayer
Its clear that Barack Obama and his Democrats are out of ideas; they are using their partys ancient and antiquated technique of painting the Republican Party as reactionary. The latest example came today courtesy of fly-by-night Los Angeles mayor and Democratic National Convention chairman Antonio Villaraigosa. Appearing on Fox News Sunday, he said that the Republican platform looks like the platform of 1812, adding Reagan would be turning in his grave" to hear some of the proposals coming from the GOP.

Yeah, baby.....doesn’t matter that it was the Republicans who abolished slavery, enacted the Civil Rights Act, etc., etc.....no, I like the idea of having slaves again. I’m tired of vacuuming my own floors.
There were no Republicans in 1812—nearest thing that existed then were Federalists and their pro-England stance ruined them due to the War of 1812.
But Republicans should never, never criticize Democrats because that would drive the Independants right back into the arms of the Democrats.
Goes double for any kind of “strident” criticism. Hooo Daddy.
The Democrats, the MSM know Obama is going to lose this election so they have to pull out all the stops now, the RACE CARD, i.e. yell racism loud and often enough.
When the “race card” don’t work you gotta go with the big guns... and play the “slavery card”...!
Democrats are in a glass house and those stones are coming close to the ceiling now.
For the longest time, the GOP was known for opposing Negro slavery, Jim Crow, racially discriminatory gun bans, and the like. Wherever black people could vote, they voted GOP, for decades. Then somehow Democrats jumped in front of that parade, tossing in some welfare bribes, and voila they stole the heart of America’s Negros.
Well of course Tony Villar is not literally saying the GOP was around in 1812.
Yep, the GOP wants the return of slavery. That’s why so many prominent black Republicans were at the convention supporting the party.
Has anyone called Mia Love a s**t or w**re yet, because she is a black Republican woman, and is married to a white man? As I understand, if we get into the gutter on these things, it’s okay for liberal black men to marry white women, but a black woman with a white man is verboten among the liberal black establishment.
How’d you ping a nonexistent freeper name?
Those darn Repubilcans...they want it to be 1776 again!
Why would Republicans want the Dems running things again?
Why is this man in office instead of jail?
Conservatives want a debt free Constitutional Republic.
Antonio sounded like a fool.
Let them spout.
The root cause and home of racial tension is now, and has always been, the Democrat Party. If more Republicans simply remembered and communicated these historical facts the sooner we might undo the damage caused by the left.
When have the Democrats ever run a campaign centered around *ideas* and concrete *goals*?
As in “We want to achieve A, B & C. In order to do this we will specifically do E, F & G.”
Ideas and goals are not ad hominum attacks on your opponents.
Ignore it, it’s another of the left’s exhibition of stupidity.
Never mind that Republicans freed the slaves, and enacted the civil rights bill, those too stupid to know it or research it will buy into this crap.
They can’t name a single instance when any Republican, or group, has even suggested such a thing, because it never happened and it never will.
This the same mindset that never collected Breitbart’s $100,000 reward for proof of epithets and spitting during the dems obamacare “victory parade”.
It foolishness, it’s folly, and it’s a lie.
There used to be a saying down South that went like this, “If we had know they’d be this radical, we would have picked our own cotton.”.
I don’t think a single person would want to “own” a slave, and most modern whites don’t even know what the “Jim Crowe” laws were, and could care less.
The blacks are obviously afflicted with the same misconception as the muslims, still living large in a previous century.
Slaves...what a foolish and ignorant thought.
The Jim Crow laws were all written and enacted by democraps.
I think Villaraigosa is the last person who should be judging anyone, considering he cheated on his wife with a KTLA News Anchor..Villaraigosa has a lot in common with Bill Clinton, both sex crazed pervs
What is "because he is a Democrat"?
I'll take "painfully obvious answers" for 200 next Alex. ;-)
Don’t forget ending women’s suffrage.
At some point, that is going to get out and be all over the airwaves. Don't know what the catalyst headline will be...something like the one that headlines this thread.
Dems are terrified that it's going to happen. And it will before too long IMO.
How could that be so?
In 1812, the two major parties in this country were the the Republican Party, which would change its name to the Democratic Party in 1840, and the Federalist Party. The overriding issue in 1812 was the war that had recently broken out with Britain. "On to Canada!" was the slogan of the Republican Party while the Federalists ran on a "peace" platform.
I doubt if there is anyone, Democrat or Republican, in this country today who wants to take over Canada.
And it is exactly this sort of hysteric that has given Romney/Ryan a 15-20% advantage over Obama/Biden with the Independents.
That's all true, but the problem is these lies are willingly put forth and defended by the MSM, which in turn give Obama and his henchmen power because these lies help shape public opinion.
All of these lies need constant rebuttal.
I do, I will trade them the North East corner of the USA and the West coast for the middle portion of Canada. Then the socialists in Quebec and the North East can freeze and starve while we get the oil sands in Alberta
He must be talking about the Democrat platform of 1812.
Does the GOP really want to go back to a time when the Democrats ran Congress, "Modern Republicans"--now called RINOs--ran their party, and Human Events was a newsletter consisting of six 8.5 X 11 pages?
Yeah! Time marches on. It was not long ago Sarah said we should party like it is 1773. The media was apoplectic about that. They can’t stand any talk of the Founders and what they stood for. So yes, now it is 1776 and hopefully on November 6 will come the ‘shot heard around the world’.

“Obama Dems: Republicans Want 1950s, 1812, Jim Crow, Slavery .”
Well, I wouldn’t mind going back to 1953, the good, the “bad”, all of it.
No apologies, either.
Yes, anyone who has ever studied American history seriously at all knows that today's Republican Party was founded c. 1854.
As the article points out, Villaraigosa's remarks are just plain stupid. We don't call them Dummycrats without reason.
I was just thinking why he would pick the year 1812 to associate with the current GOP platform. The most immediate event that comes to mind from that year is the War of 1812 against the British. If you want to think about a modern-day war with the UK, think Obama and his return of the Churchill bust and his "dissing" of the Queen - certainly more anti-Brit than anything in the GOP platform! Of course, Obama still has a chip on his shoulder against the Brits stemming from his identification with his Kenyan heritage.
Actually, republican’s want 1980.
Jim Crow was a Democrat
It’s such a pity that we don’t do more to reach across the aisle and compromise with these thoughtful, kind people... (/sarc)
I plead guilty on wanting the 50s, but the good parts of it. The clothes, the hair styles, the cars, the music. An era when there were fewer unerring mothers and fewer divorces. A Hollywood that was still producing family friendly movies and tv shows. When the church was better respected and held more sway in society. When America was prosperous and an international manufacturing powerhouse. When kids and teens treated their elders with more respect. Etc, etc.
Obammy wants to go back to the 80’s reverse discrimination and busing.
I’m with you . Born in ‘52 .
Villap*ndejo is an imbecile..
The Democrats are going to lose the election with this talking point. 1812 was a time period when the real Patriots were in charge and none of the nonsense coming from this group would have been tolerated. In the 1950’s, Eisenhower was president and there was no silliness such as is going on today. Their reference to the old days is a reference to the good old days. They had better rethink this one.
Yes, the Eisenhower Administration in particular was rather RINOish.
Don't forget that during the first three years of the 1950s, Truman was president and the US was experiencing military casualties at a much higher rate in stalemated Korea when compared to Iraq and Afghanistan combined.
But, contrary to your post, Republicans actually did control both houses of Congress from 1953 to 1955.
That was only 20% of the decade. The best part of the 1950's was January to June, 1953, when Bob Taft ran the Senate. His successor, Bill Knowland, wasn't as competent, and after 1954, LBJ ran the show.
Give it back to the Mohawk traditionalists ~ they want to bring back ceremonial cannibalism
