House votes to kill Gohmert-sponsored resolution to ban Democratic Party

Source: Washington Post

WASHINGTON House Democrats on Tuesday killed a Republican resolution that would have effectively banned the Democratic Party or any political organization for its past history of supporting slavery and the Confederacy.

The House voted 223-to-176 to table the resolution sponsored by Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, who introduced it in July as a counter to the overwhelming, bipartisan House vote to remove statues of Confederate leaders from the Capitol.

Gohmert reintroduced the privileged resolution last week, forcing a swift procedural vote in the House that fell along near-party lines

The resolution from Gohmert also would have directed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to remove "any item that names, symbolizes, or mentions any political organization or party that has ever held a public position that supported slavery or the Confederacy, from any area within the House.

3. That someone would propose to ban on political party is deplorable but...

...the fact that 176 members were in agreement...I don't even have a work for that.

4. The Republican party ...the ANTI SCIENCE AND ANTI EDUCATION party...

If they had their choice they would ban SCIENCE... and take us back to the 1600 where they burned women they didn't care for , by calling them witches.

Hey, Gohmert: Thank God you republicans won that war back in the 1860s.

A democrat should introduce that resolution.

Surely the republicans would vote in favor.

24. I am guessing Louie didn't think this one out.

to remove "any item that names, symbolizes, or mentions any
political organization or party that has ever held a public position
that supported slavery or the Confederacy,
from any area within the House.

Which would include himself!

26. So the southern racists who abandoned the Democratic Party after LBJ signed the Civil Rights Act put

forward a pathetic and likely unconstitutional resolution to try to counter the fact that their president, who is a blatant racist, is going down in flames. Got it. That will probably work.

because they were the slaveholders.
