The Founders defined democracy as mobocracy. Knowing that democracies are short lived, usually ending in civil wars. Athens/Attica being the prime example. A lynch mob is the perfect example of a democracy.
Of the 4,743 persons lynched by the KKK from 1882 to 1964, 1,297 were white Republicans. Pardon, if I desire to keep Democrats far away from my person.
Republicans: I don't care what Trump did 20 years ago
also Republicans: look what the Democrats did over 100 years ago.
The Democrats Liarstraights is referencing are now all Republicans. So much for that dead horse.
