House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarty (R-CA) proclaimed on Tuesday that the Democrat Party has not evolved from its days supporting slavery, Jim Crow laws, and the Ku Klux Klan, because today, the Democrat Party supports Critical Race Theory.
“Democrats are desperate to pretend their party has progressed from their days of supporting slavery, pushing Jim Crow laws, and supporting the KKK,” McCarthy tweeted.
“But today, the Dem Party has simply replaced the racism of the Klan with the racism of Critical Race Theory,” the congressman added.
“Just a few years ago, then Vice President Joe Biden praised Democrat senator Robert Byrd. He was the Exalted Cyclops of the Ku Klux Klan,” McCarthy said. “In his eulogy for Byrd, he said, ‘For a lot of us, he was a friend, a mentor, and a guide.’”
“Another leading Democrat who praised Byrd at the time was Speaker Pelosi. She called Byrd a friend, a great person, and a great American patriot,” the congressman added.
