GOP Rep. Gohmert sponsors resolution to ban Democratic Party

In response to a House motion on Wednesday to remove monuments honoring Confederate soldiers or any slavery supporter, U.S. Rep. Louis Gohmert, R-Texas, introduced a proposal of his own.


“A great portion of the history of the Democratic Party is filled with racism and hatred,” he claimed. “Since people are demanding we rid ourselves of the entities, symbols, and reminders of the repugnant aspects of our past, then the time has come for Democrats to acknowledge their party’s loathsome and bigoted past, and consider changing their party name to something that isn’t so blatantly and offensively tied to slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination, and the Ku Klux Klan.”

His resolution received support from some fellow House Republicans, including Andy Biggs of Arizona, Jody Hice of Georgia, Andy Harris of Maryland, and Randy Weber of Texas.
