Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) recently gave Democrats a run for their money by introducing a House resolution demanding that the Democratic Party changes its name or be barred from participation in the House of Representatives due to its past public support of slavery and the Confederacy.
The resolution raises a question of the “privileges” of the House and the standards in which the left wants to hold everyone else to. The GOP lawmaker was making a point that “cancel culture” works both ways, in which many organizations and products deemed offensive were voiced in support by the left to rename and rebrand.

The Democratic National Conventions were commonly known as the “Klan-Bake” due to the overwhelming influence of the Ku Klux Klan in the Democratic Party. The Democrats led filibusters against the Civil Rights Act, enacted and enforced Jim Crow laws that forced segregation and restricted freedoms of black Americans in the United States. The list goes on and on…
“And two, that any political organization or party that has ever held a public position that supported slavery of the Confederacy shall either change its name or be barred from participation in the House of Representatives,” Congressman Gohmert concluded.
By calling upon Congress to ban any political organization or party that has ever held a public position in support of slavery or the Confederate States of America, Gohmert is giving the violently offended left a taste of their own medicine. The left has sat around and watched their party burn cities, tear down statues, and call upon everything to be renamed, without even remembering their own offensive ties to slav
