Democrat mocks slavery

Harriet Tubman was the escaped slave who kept returning to the South to liberate other slaves. Some people want to put her on the $20 bill to replace the slave-owning founder of the Democrat Party, Andrew Jackson.

Senfronia Calpernia Thompson, 82, is a confused woman who has been in the Texas House representing Houston for 49 years.

Thompson believes she is a modern Harriet Tubman.

Fox reported, "Texas State Representative Senfronia Thompson – one of the Democratic lawmakers that fled Austin for D.C. to deprive the state legislature of a quorum to vote on election integrity legislation – delivered a fiery speech in which she appeared to compare Texas officials threatening her arrest with the act of a slave escaping the plantation."

She is nothing like a slave leaving a plantation.

She is just like a spoiled brat who is throwing a tantrum because she is not getting her way.

Comparing herself, a duly elected official for nearly a half-century, to a slave is pretty ignorant. 

What she and her colleagues did is not a first. She is not being arrested because she is black. She ran for public office of her own free will and now she refuses to do her job. 

Legislators fleeing a state to deny a quorum are legendary. The reason they leave the state is to avoid arrest, which would force them to show up for work and give the majority a quorum so business could be conducted.

While unusual, what Thompson and company are doing is a well-established desperation move by the party out of power. Occasionally it works.

It was pretty bad when Democrats dusted off Jim Crow and dragged him into the debate over whether mail-in ballots must be verified and whether people must show an ID at the polls.

Texas legislators hopped onto a private plane to fly to DC, where they infected at least one White House staffer and at least one Pelosi staffer with covid 19. At least 6 of the Texas Democrats also caught covid 19 as well. The party has stopped reporting on its superspreading of covid.

Flying in an airplane is a far cry from traveling covertly in the dead of night through slave states to free slaves, knowing that if caught you can be enslaved again, but likely will be lynched.

I get that Democrats are desperate to hang on to power having stolen the last election.

But what I don't get is why through overuse they are turning slavery into a word as meaningless as Nazi, which through misuse now means someone with whom you disagree.

Maybe the plan is to water down slavery and Jim Crow to the point where they are harmless things.

If true, that is pretty darned wicked, even for Democrats.

  1. I've rarely seen the house tactic work. Normally it blows up in your face and the party in power, if they really have the power, gets even more members so as to make the fleeing parties representatives presence unnecessary.

    If Texas voters don't like this, the GOP will get a supermajority.

  2. It’s easier to understand the left when you realize that most things they say and do come from a position of intolerance and hate for anyone who dares disagree with them.

    1. Teleology is purpose, and the ultimate purpose of Leftism is destruction of The Good. Think of a demon searching for a weapon to attack Goodness.

    2. I have for many years said the dems are the big tent, the party of hate! Their hatred knows no bounds and they forgive each other for public slips. They do things we would never consider because they hate. It starts close to home, with themselves. When you disgust yourself you can't find happiness anywhere and as a result you want everyone to feel as awful as you do. And then theres that damn repub party and they are usually grinning stupidly happy folks that you despise almost as much as yourself! No matter what they do it will never be enough because they still hate...

  3. If they are not doing their job, the are not Legislators, but tourists. Actually, they are insurrectionists- since they are uprising against and preventing legitimate government business. I suggest they are terrorists- since they have delivered a bioweapon to the Capitol.

    Think you mean party out of power (although you may be right; the Demos are running on empty).

  6. "the slave-owning founder of the Democrat Party, Andrew Jackson."

    Conrad Black gives Jackson some credit for the suppression of the Doctrine of Nullification.
    Vice President John C. Calhoun was the most effective proponent of the constitutional theory of state nullification, that if a state believed a federal law unconstitutional, it could declare the law null and void in the state.

  7. I can see Sendronia’s autobiography now - 49 Years a Slave.

  8. The point at the end about watering down Jim Crow and slavery is very good. While it is obviously evil, their motivation might be to mitigate these historical deeds their party brought about.

    2. I beg to differ, it’s not so much a wind farm as a hit air factory.

  10. One really impressive thing about bigtime (and big-mouthed) leftists is that for the most part they have led soft, cushie, no-results-required, pampered lives, crave the cachet that comes with being a "victim of oppression," but are perpetually itching to BE oppressors.

    In other words, they want to sit around in cushie lifestyles... while somehow also being - simultaneously - BOTH sides at the bridge in Selma...

  11. As I keep saying, I don't KNOW if the Dems are a wholly-owned subsidiary of the media, or it it's the other way round, but it's OBVIOUS that they are in CAHOOTS...and sleep in the same beds.

  13. Hmm, why overuse the slavery trope to the point of meaninglessness?

    Sound like a useful endeavor prior to enslaving people.

    I'm figuring on anti-racism laws and terms in the work camps for the convicts.
