Democrats Call For Republicans To Condemn Barbour Slavery Comments

 

 

 
"Governor Barbour defended the  indefensible this morning and in doing so betrayed a Republican mind set that is not only out of touch with this century, but the last one as well.  To say that the systematic condemnation of millions to bondage and generation upon generation to servitude is "not significant," or that the tearing apart of families and the selling of human beings as cattel "doesn't amount to diddly" is outrageous for any public official to say, let alone a man Republicans have placed in a position of leadership. This is the second Republican leader who has dismissed the horror of slavery as "insignificant" in the past one week.  These comments  are unacceptable and should be universally condemned in the strongest terms. A failure to do so will send a strong message to all Americans that Republicans endorse Governor Barbour's sentiments and are content not only to be left behind in another century, but that they deserve to be a small regional party in the permanent minority," said DNC Press Secretary Hari Sevugan
