Donkeycrat (donkey + Democrat)

"Donkeycrat” (Democratic donkey + Democrat) is an infrequently used and generally derogatory term for a Democrat. “Donkeycrat” has been cited in print since at least 1929.


27 April 1929, Tampa (FL) Morning Tribune, pg. 8, col. 6:

(Letter by W. H. Kirkpatrick—ed.)

9 March 1950, Hartford (CT) Courant, “The People’s Forum: Meditation From A Connecticut Thicket” by Rowland F Denison, pg. 10:
And he can well shake his head at the “evil” of urban concentration, which was feared and dreaded of old by one whom present-day Donkeycrats apparently revere—Thomas Jefferson.

24 September 1956, El Paso (TX) Herald-Post, “Many who hate Ike also dislike peace” by Duncan Montgomery, pg. 18, cols. 4-5:
That does sound like a first rate indictment, but the Nominee of the Donkeycrats has to blow some sort of horn.

EDITOR: The frustrated “donkeycrat” aspiring to become our chief executive is doing everything possible to aggravate Mr. Nixon into debate, but the President very properly is reluctant to comply.
(Letter by M. W. Madsen, Sunnyvale—ed.)

Over the past twenty years, the “Democratic Party” has evolved, (stealthily), into the “Donkeycrat Party”!!!
