Republican Congressman Louie Gohmert ripped the radical left’s latest concept of “cancel culture” in a fiery op-ed published Thursday; suggesting it’s now time to “Cancel Democrats” instead.
“Many on the left and their willing accomplices in the media would tell you otherwise, yet a cursory examination of our nation’s factual history and records proves the riots and chaos that have swept across our country in recent months stand as a devastating reminder of the racist policies and values held by the Democratic Party throughout much of its history,” writes Gohmert.
“Throughout America’s history, Republicans have fought to repeal Jim Crow laws, desegregate schools, and promote racial equality in America. In recent years, Republicans, including President Trump, have continued this fight by working valiantly to lift Americans of all races out of poverty through pro-growth economic policies that have done more to help the plight of the impoverished than any administration. Prior to the economic downturn caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, unemployment rates for minorities were at record lows with employment at record highs,” he adds.
“Efforts by Democrats to destroy all public traces of their own history of supporting slavery, the Confederacy, and segregation in an attempt to shift blame onto Republicans must no longer go unchallenged. It is time for Democrats to play by their own rules, and accept the standards they have forced onto everyone else. They must divest themselves of their name that has denied so many the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Their recent actions demand nothing less. Instead of canceling our culture and history, it’s time to #CancelDemocrats,” concludes Gohmert.

GOHMERT on HANNITY: ‘When it Came Down to Articles of Impeachment, There Was No Crime’
Rep. Louie Gohmert stopped-by ‘Hannity’ Monday night to weigh-in on the Democrats’ ongoing impeachment fantasy; saying when push came to shove, their final Articles “included no crime.”
“It is outrageous. You’ve been taking about this for years. What gets me, is I saw people who lied so often, they have no conscience, it’s become completely worthless. We’re seeing that in the House, we’re seeing that in the Senate,” said Gohmert.
“When it came down to the Articles of Impeachment, there is no crime. It’s pretty outrageous,” he added.
