The Democratic Party is the Party of Slavery. They are the party that decided to secede from the Union. They are the party that started a Civil War over the right to treat people as property. They are the party that, once their side lost the war, set up structures to keep American citizens from exercising their civil rights.
And now, 150 years after the Civil War, the Democratic Party is at it again.
Republicans were leading a bipartisan effort to stop slavery around the world. Human trafficking is a terrible issue. It affects children in this country and women elsewhere. It destroys families and lives. And the Democrats are backing strong, bipartisan legislation.
Because the Democrats still believe people can be property. They believe people can killed. And they want the government to do it.
Yes, the reality is that the same arguments used by Democrats 150 years ago to defend the institution of slavery are now used to defend the institution of abortion and, in the process, Democrats are willing to filibuster a bill to fight slavery around the world.
