Centuries? The "Lost Cause" movement (such as it was) occurred during the late 1800s and early 1900s. Hardly "centuries". Dumb fcuk.

FYI, the CNN article is wrong in stating that the Civil War was fought of slavery. Even Lincoln didn't believe so. Hell, he was ok with slavery in remaining in the South and even favored shipping Blacks to colonies in the Caribbean.

1) 1800's, 1900's, 2000's. The Conservative hate cover up has spanned three centuries.

2) You'll notice that CNN offered both opposing views. As expected.

3) If it weren't for the severe mistreatment of Blacks, the state's rights wouldn't have become an issue. Hats off to Lincoln for maintaining a basic matter-of-fact position in a very rough time in our country's history. Having a president pick sides in a very public way would have been a real detriment.

Using Confederate General Jubal Early's efforts to start the Southern Historical Society in 1870, only 146 years have transpired, hardly "centuries" of time as you are insinuating. Also one should keep in mind that ex-Confederates, the KKK and Southerners of the late 1800s and early 1900s were more likely to be Democrats not Republicans. In fact the embracing of the Progressive Movement by Democrats was partly led by that rabid racist, Woodrow Wilson.

If you want to get technical about it Conservatives have had to cover for their disgraceful actions since way back in the mid 1600's when religious organizations started calling them out on their sins. To continually compare modern day Democrats with Democrats from around the time of the Civil War shows either an incredible lack of knowledge about American history, or some serious lip service. Our various political affiliations have shifted their stances over time. For evidence of that one would need to look no further than our current Republican party. What was not so long ago a party with a well grounded conservative platform has become a crony capitalism Federalist party that has been trying it's hardest to shove it's Christianity and patriotism in our faces to rile up the base and hide what it's doing behind it's back. So yes, political parties can change their platform. Which is why I refer to them as Conservatives. Which in today's world is what they are.

AND THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF WHY CONSERVATIVES SHOULD NOT ARGUE WITH REPRESSIVE LIBERALS

It begins with the LYING REPRESSIVE LIBERAL making the FALSE claim that conservatives have been hiding their message of hate for CENTURIES.

Rather than ignoring the LYING REPRESSIVE LIBERAL or just shutting the scmubag down, the LYING REPRESSSIVE LIBERAL is engaged in a back and forth debate with the defense that it has only been 146 years which is hardly centuries.    It is useless to argue with a REPRESSIVE LIBERAL as you only offer the cretins an opportunity to spread more falsehoods.

The FACTS are simple.  REPRESSIVE LIBERALS believed in slavery (repression) and they fought the Civil War to protect it.  The Republican Party under Lincoln was actually formed to end slavery and CONSERVATIVE professors from the CONSERVATIVE Hillsdale College actually wrote the original Republican Platform.

I think Gomezz has already set you straight on the facts about the Civil War.  

About the formation of the Republican party - Were they against slavery ?  Or was the party platform against the spread of slavery ?  A subtle (too much so for you) but significant difference.  Which was it ?

Or as always shall we rely upon Gomezz to bring the facts to your understanding?

I am sick and tired of repressive liberals distorting and rewriting history.  Equally disgusting are those who let these disgusting scumbags get away with it or worse yet aid and abet them.

The Republican Party was formed to oppose slavery - PLAIN AND SIMPLE.  The Republican Party has been opposed to slavery since it came into existence while the deomonrat party has supported slavery in one form or another throughout its history.  Despite all of the repressive liberal attempts to rewrite history and now claim that the two parties have switched positions and it was really Republicans that supported slavery, THEY ARE WRONG.

There is one distinct data point that PROVES them wrong and that is the best little college in America.  Hillsdale College was one of the very first colleges to admit women and blacks.  They were also instrumental in the formation of the Republican Party and the drafting of its early platforms.

http://hillsdalecollegian.com/2016/08/arnn-spalding-propose-1860-style-gop-platform/

https://www.hillsdale.edu/about/history/

Hillsdale College has steadfastly opposed slavery and was instrumental in the creation of the Republican Party as well as its existence today.  Hillsdale College has not changed and neither has the Republican Party on the issue of slavery or OTHER CONSERVATIVE PRINCIPLES. The only thing that has changed with the Republican Party is that we have allowed scumbag progressives to infiltrate the party and gain some leadership roles.

REPRESSIVE LIBERALS ARE FULL OF BULLSHIT.
Conservatives need to silence these scumbags, not try to argue with them.  THEY ARE EVIL.

It would appear that they are just following the playbook of your hero Obama.  He would not name a single special prosecutor or investigative body to look at any of the numerous ethics problems in the White House.  Everybody wants to investigate themselves and thanks to dipshit demonrats, that is the way the game is played.  If Obama had been upfront and created a special prosecutor for all of his and Hillary's scandals, the Republicans could never get away with this.  BUT HE DIDN'T.

Unless you are willing to tackle the source of the problem you should shut your mouth asshole and crawl back under you rock.  No just go away.

The OCE was a piece of crap, in effect nothing more than a Star Chamber conjured up by Pelosi's fevered mind that routinely violated due process and basic evidentiary standards that routinely discriminated against those being investigated when they tried to invoke their rights. No surprise that your singular Liberal brain cell would be repulsed by the idea of someone exercising their Constitutional and legal rights.

There are certainly two different views on this issue.  Your comment almost completely mirrors what I heard Buck Sexton say this morning.  It could well be 100% accurate.  However, I have a moderately favorable opinion of Judicial Watch and they are on the other side of this issue.

http://www.judicialwatch.org/press-room/press-releases/judicial-watch-calls-upon-house-retain-congressional-ethics-office/

I do not doubt that there were some "witch hunts" originated in this investigative body and that is why the demonrats are vigorously defending it.  However, for Judicial Watch to take the strong position they have, there might be other factors to consider.

In 1996 "Bubba" Clinton endorsed a $10B loan from the IMF for the imploding Yeltsin presidency in Russia to help liberalize the Russian economy and tilt it to being more capitalist. Yeltsin partly used the money on social spending before the election which included payment of back wages and pensions to essentially buy popular support.

That was a bailout, and part of an ongoing process. The IMF had already loaned Russia money under Yeltsin, and he met all of the guidelines they had laid out for him in that loan. The similarly here is that Putin, being an oligarchist dictator, saw value in Trump and Republicans. He then proceed to very directly and very secretly try to rig the election.

The IMF on the other hand was up front about what was going on. And much like when the EU bailed out various countries around Europe, political reprocussions are unavoidable because it's a real take it or leave it policy.

The big takeaways here are to never trust Russia, and that Putin is trying to infect the US, through the #PartyofTrump, with his oligarchism.

Thanks for pointing that out.
