The Star Tribune, to it's great credit, printed a letter to the editor that just spanked the Dems and their race-baiting of the last two weeks.
History says differently
I find laughable Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's comment that she feels the Republican-controlled Congress is run like a plantation (Star Tribune, Jan. 17).
The Republican Party was established a few years before the Civil War with one purpose -- to end slavery. Many Democrats who strongly opposed slavery joined this new party.
When Abraham Lincoln, the first Republican president, was elected, Southern Democrats realized that this was the beginning of the end of slavery and seceded from the Union so they could continue enslaving African-Americans. The Civil War followed.
Now fast-forward to today. While more than 90 percent of African-Americans vote Democratic, they have little to show for it. They are being tossed bones.
It seems to me that slavery is still alive and well. The new plantation is the federal government, and the plantation owners are the Democratic Party.
