Hey, Harry! The supporters of slavery were DEMOCRATS

Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) says that people who oppose socialized medicine are comparable to those opposed freeing the slaves.  Another outrageous lie from the Democrats!

Just as outrageous is that, by ignoring their party’s heritage, the Republican Party has allowed Democrats and their lefty media allies to mislead millions of Americans about the true history of the Grand Old Party.

Every Republican, and I mean every Republican, should know that it was the Republican Party that freed the slaves and that it was the Democrats who wanted to keep African-Americans in chains.  Democrats denounced President Abraham Lincoln (R-IL) for his Emancipation Proclamation, and congressional Democrats voted unanimously against the 13th Amendment to abolish slavery.  In fact, so long as the GOP appreciated its heritage, the Democrats were known as the Slaveocrat Party.

To quote Back to Basics for the Republican Party: “The more we Republicans know about the history of our party, the more the Democrats will worry about the future of theirs.”
