Democrats: Killing with misinformation since 1840
By Trevor Thomas
In 1840, item seven of the Democrats’ Party Platform read,
Resolved, That congress has no power, under the constitution, to interfere with or control the domestic institutions of the several states, and that such states are the sole and proper judges of everything appertaining to their own affairs, not prohibited by the constitution; that all efforts by abolitionists or others, made to induce congress to interfere with questions of slavery, or to take incipient steps in relation thereto, are calculated to lead to the most alarming and dangerous consequences, and that all such efforts have an inevitable tendency to diminish the happiness of the people, and endanger the stability and permanency of the union, and ought not to be countenanced by any friend to our political institutions.
For six consecutive party platforms -- from 1840 through 1860 -- Democrats used their party platform to promote the institution of slavery. In addition to keeping the horrific institution legal in the U.S., as a result of this deceit, hundreds of thousands of Americans would die.
Likewise, save for one year -- 1984 -- where abortion was not mentioned in the party platform, since 1976 the modern Democrat party has unapologetically stood for the “right” to kill children in the womb. In attempt to justify this slaughter and to keep as many Americans as possible -- especially younger Americans -- in the dark about the abortion industry, Democrats have used decades of disinformation to dehumanize the unborn. This has resulted in the deaths of tens of millions of the most innocent and helpless among us.
