SCGOP Celebrates MLK Day with David Barton
The South Carolina GOP hosted a luncheon yesterday for Martin Luther King Day that featured David Barton explaining how Democrats were responsible for slavery:
S.C. Republican leaders gathered to celebrate the legacy of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., before Monday night's SCGOP Debate.
Gov. Nikki Haley, Congressman Tim Scott, SCGOP Chairman Chad Connelly and historian David Barton spoke to a full room at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center to honor King and highlight the legacy of change in South Carolina.
David Barton, founder and president of WallBuilders, highlighted the historical difference between Republicans and Democrats. The historian led the crowd through a timeline demonstrating the role Democrats of the day played in perpetuating the existence of slavery in the United States.
As we have noted before, Barton produced a DVD several years back entitled "Setting the Record Straight: American History in Black & White" in which he blames the Democratic Party for everything from slavery and Jim Crow to lynchings and the KKK.
This is the message the SCGOP brought Barton in to deliver for its MLK Day celebration.
