20 Of The Most Embarrassing Moments In The History Of The Democrat Party. Gotta love the Democrat’s ability to completely re-write or ignore their nefarious past. We do find ourselves somewhat disappointed they didn’t include Democrat Wilbur Mills and Fannie Fox, AKA: The Tidal Basin Bombshell.

…and the list goes on and on and on.

Talk about “An Inconvenient Truth!”

That’s something else they do, and which they must be called out on aggressively: when a Republican president or official does something bad or stupid, it is laid directly at his feet. But when Saint Franklin puts US citizens in concentration camps or Truman nukes Hiroshima or invades Korea: “We” did it — meaning Americans as a guilty collective. Note too how Nixon gets the Vietnam albatross hung on his shoulders, with nary a word that it was LBJ’s bungling there which cost us victory and cost him the presidency. Any time a leftard starts ragging on Nixon, come back at him with the old “Hey hey, LBJ, how many kids did you kill today!”

Probably the only thing on the list I might take issue with is the Prohibition movement. The Prohibitionists might be describes as “progressive,” but they were largely the same bunch who had been Abolitionists just a few years before and many had the same fervent Christian underpinnings.

Well, that and the Trail of Tears. Yes, Old Hickory was immediately responsible for it, but the handwriting was on the wall, the Indian removals were ongoing and unstoppable, and that would have happened one way or another regardless of who was in charge. Indian leaders often chastise us with the cold fact that of the 270 some treaties made between the US government and Indian nations over 200 hundred years, every single one was broken — from our side. If we as a nation have any kind of collective guilt to regret, that’s where you can find it.

Excellent point! I hope a lot of people read this and remember it. We know it’s true, but it’s one of those (many) strategies that the left uses almost instinctively, while we on the right, who don’t think as deviously, can’t quite put our finger’s on.

I found a website about propaganda techniques, and started to read it. It was well written at first, and then the author began to devolve. Over the course of 300 pages, it went from a blueprint of propaganda techniques to rants about Alcoholics Anonymous (seriously) and conservative politicians.

The point is that it really takes a certain kind of person to be sneaky and devious, and I think that kind of person eventually does just lose touch with reality. Look at Dan Rather, for instance. As he gets older, he gets less coherent, and he has to be hidden away like crazy Aunt Esther. There is also no coincidence that these people gravitate to liberalism but (to quote Alton Brown) “that’s another show”.

Hey, no problem. Dems are great at rewriting history.

To me, the most infamous line ever spoken in the history of politics is “We have to pass the bill so we can find out what’s in it.”

That’s a line right out of Lewis Carroll, and it shows what the Dems are all about.

> 99 % of democrats are NEVER embarrassed by their (or their party’s) criminality or depravity. The more heinous the crime, or the more depraved the action, the more they act indignant and justify it if you point it out. Or they try and blame someone else. NEVER introspective. They are amoral, self-absorbed, childish, low-life unrepentant scum. Note to media – since > 95 % of you worship at the democrat’s feet, the definition fits you too.

And when they catch a Republican, a priest or a preacher doing something wrong they like to shout it to the heavens… not because they think the sin or the crime is wrong, but because they think no one should preach against sin or crime in the first place.

Right, MC, professional Democrats are shameless. They do not get embarrassed.

I think his re-election is more embarrassing than his first election
