Tomato Can -
I haven't read it, but Dinesh D'Souza has a book about this showing that there wasn't some great flip of racists leftist becoming conservatives like the left try to claim
D'Souza is a propagandist, and the only reason anyone believes his garbage revisionist history is because they want to so they can feel like they're on the "correct" side and the other side are dastardly evildoers.
D'Souza is arguably an ideal recipient of special education. Hes really stupid and socially incompetent.
He's a propagandist but neither of you offer any evidence that what D'Souza had said is false. There is sort of a problem with that statement, no?
D'Souza isn't making any claims either. He is simply tearing apart this silly revisionist history you people seem to think is fact because someone once told you so it was. I am 100% open to the idea of a "Big Switch" however, nobody has ever presented any evidence that such a thing took place. This is almost as bad as the argument "The bible is truth and fact because it says it's truth and fact".
You guys are the one claiming there was a big switch. I don't need to disprove one existed. YOU need to prove it did exist because that's how logic works. I don't need to prove a negative while you do need to prove your claim. So prove to me that this happened. I'm doing my best not to call anyone names or stray off topic. If someone wishes to teach, I am willing to listen. However your going to have to respond to questions based on your assertions like I did above. You guys feel free to pick up where the others left off if you want.
I will agree to source anything you want me too. However most of the information I know is common knowledge. If you didn't know that Jimmy Carter won in 76, there isn't much more I can do.
I think you two misunderstand D'Souza. I don't believe he is trying to point the whole dirty end of the stick at the left. I think over time along with such myths as the "Big Switch" the left have removed themselves from history as if they were just observers. I'm sorry but Democrats have a shit history in our country. That doesn't mean Democrats are what they used to be. I am fine with the idea that overtime racists just got ran out and replaced. Someone mentioned that earlier. However that demonstrates that racists did once exist on the left.
How can you learn to not repeat history if your ignoring it existed? Some Democrats do the same thing with the internment of Japanese Americans in WW2. That was Democrats. They put innocent Japanese American in camps soley because there herritage. That was an awful, disgusting thing to do. That doesn't mean you as Tomato Can or BigTDizzle own those actions because your Democrats now.
The fact is that Democrats announced themselves the saviors of minorities. Nobody gave them that label. They wanted to change their ways and good for them. However you can't just take an erazer to history and make it seem like Democrats weren't as bad as they were. The reason they changed is as important as what they eventually became. If you start erasing history the story loses the important part of why? You want us to believe Democrats just had the foresight of equality on a whim? Ok you will have to prove that.
So let's despense with the name calling and shit talking and just have a chat.
