The Democrats literally filibustered the Civil Rights Act of 1964 for 75 freaking days to prevent its passage…
Stacey Abrams opened her discussion with MSNBC by accusing President Trump of taking words and twisting their meaning, yet she conveniently forgets the history of her own damn party. Furthermore, Abrams embraces her own accusations as she twists when Senator Tom Cotton referenced the Founding Fathers’ statement about slavery being a necessary evil.
Cotton stated, “We have to study the history of slavery and its role and impact on the development of our country because otherwise we can’t understand our country. As the Founding Fathers said, it was the necessary evil upon which the union was built, but the union was built in a way, as Lincoln said, to put slavery on the course to its ultimate extinction.”
Slavery dates back to biblical times and was the method of employment and hierarchy but, as history has taught us, slavery turned very heinous, violent, and ungodly disrespectful.
Overall, what I can gather from this statement, and correct me if I’m wrong or misguided to any degree, but Cotton was simply suggesting that slavery evolved in a direction that turned ugly and, as a country, we were able to defeat the ugliness – THAT should be celebrated. What we learned from that process should be celebrated. Ultimately, the black community should celebrate such a victory for their people, much like the Jews continue to celebrate their ancestors overcoming genocide.
Typical Democrap mentality – never see the growth that comes from overcoming mistakes and always shy away from learning from all the inevitable evils while you enjoy your participation trophies for having a brain stem.
Monday on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut,” former Georgia Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Stacey Abrams reacted to Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) writing that the Founding Fathers thought slavery was “a necessary evil.”
Abrams said, “There is no such thing as a necessary evil. Evil is evil, and slavery is one of the ultimate evils. And I think having this conversation on the day when John Lewis lays in state is a critical moment of reckoning.”

She continued, “If Tom Cotton is sincere in his desire to understand history, then he should be celebrating the 1619 Project. He should be celebrating The Voting Rights Act renewal. He should be celebrating Black Lives Matter because the continuity of evil in our country has led us to this moment. We can only extinguish evil by acknowledging that it exists and doing everything in our power to defeat it, not to celebrate it, not to excuse it, and certainly not to use it as a polemic way to justify the racism that runs through the party that is lifting up Tom Cotton and his language as something that’s legitimate as part of the argument about what our children should learn about this country.”
… he literally wasn’t excusing slavery…
Let me know when someone who’s associated with a party that doesn’t advocate for murdering millions of black babies every year (ie – planned parenthood, founded by Margaret Sanger, who openly admitted to her desire of aborting the black race and sterilizing them) starts talking about how much black lives matter.
There’s clearly still a lot more evil we have yet to learn from in this country.
