Bashing Democratic Party

How dare an independent, not a Republican or Democrat, speak out against the Democratic agenda.
Especially, how dare a black independent American speak out against the agenda of the Democratic president of the United States.
How dare he.
After all, the party of Jim Crow, the party of segregation, the Democratic Party can’t listen or accept or allow a black American to speak unless he holds to the party line.
Only if they hold to the party line may they talk! I can’t believe talking head Bob Beckel used the fact it was a prayer breakfast to criticize Doctor Carson and accuse him of not quoting the Bible properly.
Carson has more intelligence in his little finger than all of Beckel’s whole body.
The Democratic Party talking heads are criticizing a man who has contributed more to mankind than any Democrat has in the last 100 years. Carson, a black American, has saved countless lives and has developed procedures in neurosurgery that have saved even more lives.
While the talking heads for the Democratic Party criticize him, he is saving lives. It is a disgrace, what I see being said about him, and I am also sickened by the criticism that I have seen toward Bill Cosby.
The Democratic Party is not the party of freedom of speech.
Jim Crow is still alive within the Democratic Party, and they don’t care about the poor. They sure don’t care about the middle-class.

I am not happy with Republicans either, but at least they freed the slaves. Welfare is only a new name for slavery, keeping people poor. Ben Carson rose from poverty, and the Democratic Party doesn’t like that either.
