    I had expected it to be Leftist B.S. But about the time it mentioned Andrew Jackson, I caught on. I had known most of it before. But it seems that too many people do not know it.
    I was about 12 years old when the Civil Rights Bill of 1964 was passed. I knew that George Wallace was a Democrat, and was rather confused by the Democrats' claiming to be the champions of the black people.--(Although, as an individualist for property rights, I was against that part of the Bill which mandated that private property owners could not make their own decisions about what happened on their own property).

    The GOP wasn't a party until 1854 at all. Perhaps the presenter is referring to an ancestor to the GOP, e.g., the Whigs.
    Most politicians and people were what modern people would call racist in the 18th century and early 19th century This issue is as irrelevant as the history of the Democrats in the same era.

        Thanks for pointing out what I missed in not watching past the initial falsehoods. It's too bad that he didn't research the truth about the GOP before he made the video.
        The rest of his facts on the GOP are as much rubbish as the beginning was. The history as recorded by the victors of Lincoln's Dictatorial Looting Tax War is as true as the current MSM story about Trump and the Russians.
        Neither party has the high ground. Both were racists and the GOP were looters from the first day of existence. They CAUSED the war and it wasn't to free anyone; it was to enslave everyone except the looting industry of the north. It has been veiled as a sacred crusade to shift blame for the murder of 400,000 Americans. Lincoln played the part of Nancy Pelosi, refusing even to talk to representatives from the southern states while pushing the south towards war that Lincoln desired like some Dems today desire an economic collapse to hurt Trump with no regard for the effects on the American people,
        I get pissed every time I see one of these holier than thou GOP apologists repeating the propaganda that the victors of the war wrote to hide their guilt. For the rest of the story I recommend DiLorenzo's The Real Lincoln.

        Both major parties have been looting the people since Thomas Jefferson retired from politics.

          Lots of history omitted from school curriculum. President Buchanan was approached by southern governors who told him that slave owners in their states were willing to emancipate their slaves on two conditions: first, that they be compensated for property losses, which would allow them to hire back the slaves as paid labor; and second that the government provide for indigent slaves. Buchanan balked at the idea of the cost of such an agreement, and told the governors that their idea had no hope of passage in Congress. Opportunity lost, and a much greater cost in fortune and lives to follow.

    Might be interesting to play the audio and pump up the volume of that video at a BLM demonstration.just to see how many minds get blown.
