(UnitedVoice.com) – The chair of the Republican Party in Connecticut, JR Romano, did something that’s likely to irritate Democrats everywhere — he used the truth against them. Amidst the removal of Civil War monuments, statues of Christopher Columbus, and the somewhat inexplicable removal of the statue of the commander-in-chief of the Union Army, Gen. U.S. Grant, he believes perhaps they should change their party name. Why? Because of years of the institutionalized racism of the group.
So Matt are you in favor of the columbus statues being removed? If yes, then you should re-examine your twitter cover. Because we have had institutional racism and a century of human rights violations perpetrated by the democratic party. https://t.co/6Azmoh3wDi

He pointed out it was actually House Democrats who blocked the initial passage of the 13th amendment, which put an end to slavery. Another part of that institutional racism reared its ugly head as Senator Strom Thurmond (D-SC) recorded the longest one-person filibuster in Senate history of over 24 hours in his opposition to the Civil Rights Act of 1957. He didn’t become a mainstay of the Republican party until 1964.
We know that somehow, the Progressive Liberals of today will find a way to either brush off these facts, deny them, or outright lie about them. However, it is heartening to see that at least some Conservatives are being vocal about the hypocrisy of the Left and are starting to call them out on it.
