Democrat Senator Tom Harkin – a racist AND ageist

“I mean, how are we ever going to match Clint Eastwood? I got to thinking he is the perfect icon for today’s Republican tea party: an old angry white man spewing incoherent nonsense.” Democrat Senator Tom Harkin

There the Democrat goes again: a racist and ageist rant.  What does Clint Eastwood’s skin color or age have to do with anything?  That’s right, it only matters to racists such as Senator Harkin.  What does Clint Eastwood’s age matter?  It doesn’t.

This is the new civility?  From the party that fought against civil rights for more than 100 years, the Democrats continue to embrace their racist past.

Let’s recall:

  • Six pro-slavery platforms from 1840 to 1860.
  • Opposed the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments.
  • Supported segregation in 20 platforms between 1868 and 1948.
  • Had a smaller percentage of votes for the 1960s Civil Rights laws than the Republicans.
