WATCH: Bumbling MAGA Minion Gets Stunned In Debate On Confederacy
- 4 minutes
The Democrats were the ones that were for slavery. The Democrats were the ones that came up the Jim Crow stuff. >> Speaker 2: Even if all of that were true about slavery, which party flies the Confederate flag today? >> Speaker 1: A lot of the Democrats. >> Speaker 2: You really think Democrats fly the Confederate flag? >> Speaker 1: There's Democrats that, yes. [00:00:16] >> Overwhelmingly, you'll see a Confederate flag right next to a Trump flag. That's just how it works now. >> Speaker 1: No, I haven't seen that overwhelmingly. >> Speaker 2: You really? Was it Democrats or Republicans trying to take down Confederate statues? >> Speaker 1: Confederate statues? >> Speaker 2: Which party was trying to take down Confederate statues? [00:00:32] >> Speaker 3: Yeah, what's the statue got to do with- >> Speaker 2: You're saying that Democrats are pro-Confederate. But weren't Democrats trying to remove Confederate statues? >> Speaker 1: Why are they doing that? >> Speaker 2: Because they're anti-Confederate. >> Speaker 1: No, they're not. >> Speaker 2: Why are they trying to remove the statues then? [00:00:47] >> Speaker 1: Because they're trying to change the history of our country. Take your camera and go interview all these Black people that are here, okay? >> Speaker 2: Yeah. >> Speaker 2: And you ask them- >> The three Black people that are here? >> Speaker 1: If you ask them. [SOUND] [LAUGH] [00:01:04] >> Speaker 4: Adam Mockler needs an Emmy dog. Let me tell you something right now. This was so beautiful. He said Confederate statues? Yeah, it goes with the flag, the Confederate flag. It's the same statue, same flag. I took down one. I'm a Democrat. Not the Democrat to brag about being a Democrat right now, [00:01:21] cuz it ain't something to hold. But I took one down. And I'm telling you right now, I see them connected to Trump Flags. They are with Trump flags. They at his rallies. He know exactly what he's doing. The woman in the video told the truth. She said those trying to take down the Confederate statues are domestic [00:01:39] terrorists. And that's what they see, and that's what they know. I'm so tired of Republicans trying to muddy the water about what the parties used to be. There was a time, absolutely, where those Democrats were those who were the party of slavery. We know there was also a shift when Fannie Lou Hamer made them sick, [00:01:57] Black people at the National Party. When she was sick and tired of being sick and tired, that there was a shift. And the racists left the Democratic Party and flew to the Republican. Who were some of those racists? Ronald Reagan left the Democratic Party at that time. Who else left? Strom Thurmond and a lot of other Republicans. [00:02:14] Now present-day Republicans. And to argue that Black people are protected by Republicans, or Republicans are looking out for our interests, makes no sense when you see Sarah Huckabee, a governor banning words. Talking about anti-woke behavior. [00:02:29] When you see the governor, I don't even wanna say his name, the small man in Florida, the sanctimonious. [LAUGH] When you see him banning books. When you see Donald Trump saying our lineage descended from s-hole countries, it's no need to pretend who and which party we're talking about here. [00:02:47] He know he represents a racist party, and trying to play dumb looks real dumb on camera. So he did a great job at it. >> Speaker 5: Yeah Mayor. I mean, it's one thing to that history, and the history is true. I mean, Democrats certainly, they were that party. [00:03:02] And some people may argue some remnants of that is still peeking out. I mean, inquiring minds- >> Joe Manchin. >> We will continue to debate that. But the answer, I mean, it's one thing to go back in history and say it was the Democratic Party that did this. They were the Dixiecrats. They were the party for slavery. [00:03:18] All of that stuff is true, irrefutable. But GOP, what you doing about it? You not doing anything to change the dynamic or the systems in this country so that they bend more towards justice. You not doing any of that. [00:03:33] So Mayor, they kill me when they state that history. But then they're not doing anything that is the antithesis of that history. As a matter of fact, they done took the ball from the Democrats and running it straight up the middle, in most cases. [00:03:48] But none of these parties are, none of them have clean hands. But it's one thing to state what the Democratic Party was. But I wanna know, GOP, what are you right now? >> Speaker 4: Don't try to confuse me with the was when we're dealing with the is. [00:04:03] >> Come on now.
