Well, as dumb as the "slavery" comment was, there is a faint glimmer of truth in there. This was, in fact, the logo of the Alabama Democratic party until 1966:

There's no denying the Dems were the pro-slavery party during slavery and solidly racist for a long time, but they didn't "protect slavery" until 1966. Jim Crow, sure. However, there's a reason the south went Republican.

One of the lamest types of posts on Twitter are the ones where columnists (especially established ones) retweet other people praising them*, like they're releasing a movie.

* As opposed to responding or expanding on the ideas
