When you go down to the seventh paragraph of this article Mr Peterson tells you he’s the only “CONSERVATIVE” Democrat left in Congress. Liberals control the Democratic Party today.
The last of the holdouts left over from when the “conservatives” ran the Democratic Party in the days of Lincoln. During the Civil Rights Era those conservatives began to migrate over to the Republican Party and take over it, till day, the transformation is basically complete, with the exception of a lone holdout like Peterson, or maybe one or two other scragglers.
So when we talk about Republicans, it helps to be mindful that these people are ” CONSERVATIVES”, and these are the people who have opposed the liberation and advancement of black people tooth and nail from the beginning, and still today, with Trump as a shining example.
