Dems ‘forgot one small detail’ while remembering the Little Rock Nine

TheDemocrats tweeted an Obama quote to commemorate the “Little Rock Nine”—nine black students who enrolled in a public high school in defiance of then Governor Orval Faubus. They forgot to mention one little detail though.

.@TheDemocrats and Obama forgot one small detail here. It was a DEMOCRAT Governor these brave kids defied. https://t.co/fKfv00MxjN

Yeah, it’s surprising there isn’t a staged picture of Obama at the high school in Little Rock. There must not be any good golf courses in Arkansas.

Have @TheDemocrats become The Audacity of Dopes? Arkansas Governor Orval Faubus, center of the Little Rock Nine controversy was a DEMOCRAT.

Glad @TheDemocrats are finally coming around to the Republican position since it was a Republican who ensured it against the threats of Dems

@TheDemocrats: Okay, cool. Did y'all forget it was @TheDemocrats that were trying to block the #LittleRockNine from getting that education?

#LOL @TheDemocrats Indeed DEM. Gov. Orval Faubus ordered Arkansas National Guard to prevent African American students from enrolling.

@TheDemocrats @KennettDems Amazing how some folks try to "pretend" that Party roles haven't COMPLETELY reversed. DEMS once behaved like #GOP

Hmmm…we must have missed the stories about Republicans using the armed forces to segregate schools.
