Joe Biden & Kamala Harris are helpfully reminding Americans that the Democrats were the party of slavery, secession, & segregation. By contrast, the Republican Party was founded on & has always stood for the natural equality of all men & women.

Sen. Tom Cotton has been down this path before, trying to explain away the Republican Party’s modern-day dependence on bigotry, misogyny and inequality by talking of segregationist Democrats of yore (all now Dixie Republicans these days.)
The Twittersphere unloaded him last night as he tried to make Kamala Harris out to be a tool of slavers. Cotton lately has opposed the Voting Rights Act, affirmative action, the ERA, women’s medical rights, non-partisan districting and more. Pussy grabbing? He’s OK with that in his president.
One of many rejoinders:
Tom Cotton helpfully reminds us that the Democratic Party has changed and has a diverse field of candidates, while the Republican Party is led by a white supremacist, supported by the KKK, neo-Nazis and white nationalists.
