These five men had two things in common–all had a penchant for racism to one degree or another, and all were Democrats.
- Twelve memorials by racist Democrats that must removed – if they are serious about racism as they claim: monuments of Presidents Andrew Johnson, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Lyndon Baines Johnson, and Sen. Robert C Byrd.
- At Princeton, Woodrow Wilson “maintained the university’s long-standing ban on admitting blacks” and as President of the U.S. he “sanctioned” attempts to instill “segregation into federal departments.”
What follows is a short description of each of the Democrats and the memorials and/or namesakes in their honor:
President Andrew Johnson–Abraham Lincoln chose Andrew Johnson as his running mate in 1864 because Lincoln’s reelection hopes hinged on being able to attract some Democrat voters to his side. Lincoln was a Republican, Johnson a Democrat. The plan worked and Lincoln was reelected. However, following Lincoln’s assassination the oversight of post-Civil War policy for the South fell to Johnson, who believed the South ought to be able to make its own course. During his administration, post-Civil War Democrats enacted the Black Codes in the South, which were precursors to the Jim Crow laws they would implement in the 20th century. The Black Codes served to prevent freed slaves from actually experiencing the fullness of freedom. Johnson is honored with The Andrew Johnson National Historic Site and National Cemetery in Greenville, Tennessee.
President Woodrow Wilson–President Woodrow Wilson appeared tolerable of blacks and interested in their plight when running for election, but he made little effort to help better the condition of blacks as the 20th century hit its second decade. In fact, in The Warrior and the Priest, John Milton Cooper, Jr., wrote, “Wilson believed blacks were not innately inferior to whites and would, in two or three centuries, achieve a measure of economic and political, if not social, equality in America.” However, Cooper explained that these views had little impact on Wilson’s behavior as president of Princeton, a position he held prior to being President of the United States. At Princeton, Wilson “maintained the university’s long-standing ban on admitting blacks” and as President of the U.S. he “sanctioned” attempts to instill “segregation into federal departments.” Princeton honors Wilson with a college named The Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.
President Franklin Delano Roosevelt–FDR ordered the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II. In other words, Japanese Americans were rounded up and held in captivity. History.com reports that FDR instituted internment by “[signing] the War Department’s blanket Executive Order 9066” in February 1942. FDR is honored with the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial in Washington DC.
President Lyndon Baines Johnson—MSNBC put it bluntly, “Lyndon Johnson said the [n-word] a lot.” While “discussing civil rights legislation with men like Mississippi Democrat James Eastland, who committed most of his life to defending white supremacy, [LBJ’d] simply call it ‘the [n-word] bill.’” LBJ is honored with the Lyndon Baines Johnson Memorial Grove on the Potomac.
Sen. Robert C. Byrd–Prior to being a Democrat Senator in West Virginia, Byrd was a member of the Ku Klux Klan. When Byrd died in 2010, the Washington Post printed an eulogy which said, in part, “As a young man, Mr. Byrd was an ‘exalted cyclops’ of the Ku Klux Klan. Although he apologized numerous times for what he considered a youthful indiscretion, his early votes in Congress — notably a filibuster against the 1964 Civil Rights Act — reflected racially separatist views.” On June 26, 2010, the Cumberland Times-News reported that Byrd was honored by at least eight highways and/or bridges throughout West Virginia. The Times-News listed the memorials as “the Robert C. Byrd Expressway and Robert C. Byrd Bridge in Ohio County; Robert C. Byrd Highway (Corridor H); Robert C. Byrd Appalachian Highway System (also Corridor H); Robert C. Byrd Appalachian Highway System (Corridor G/U.S. 119); Robert C. Byrd Bridge in Huntington; Robert C. Byrd Interchange at Birch River; [and the] Robert C. Byrd Appalachian Highway System (Corridor L/I-77).”
If Democrats are serious about weeding out monuments tied to racist history, the 12 monuments which honor the above mentioned Democrats ought to be first on the list.
- Theodore Roosevelt is a ‘stark embodiment of the white supremacy’
- “The statue is seen as an affront to all who pass it on entering the museum, but especially to African and Native Americans.”
Hundreds of activists gathered at the American Museum of Natural History on Monday to take down the “racist” statue of Theodore Roosevelt and an urgent call to rename Columbus Day.
More than 200 people cheered outside the museum as activists covered the statue of Roosevelt on horseback flanked by an African American and Native American on either side and demanded it be ultimately removed.
“A stark embodiment of the white supremacy that Roosevelt himself espoused and promoted,” the group explained in a statement. “The statue is seen as an affront to all who pass it on entering the museum, but especially to African and Native Americans.”
Activists from the groups NYC Stands with Standing Rock and Decolonize This Place organized the protest to draw attention to the museum’s encouragement of racist tropes, and implored New York City to rename Columbus Day to Indigenous People’s Day.
Columbus Day controversially commemorates Christopher Columbus reportedly arriving in the Americas on 12 October 1492. Columbus is believed to have brutally enslaved the indigenous people upon his arrival and imposed harsh punishments, including torture. His arrival also ushered in European settlers to the Americas who waged wars against Native Americans and brought diseases with them that had a lasting devastating effect.
There is growing movement to change the name of Columbus Day. In the past year cities in 10 different states have moved to change the name to Indigenous People’s Day, the largest being in Phoenix, Arizona. However, opposition remains in places like Oklahoma City, and Cincinnati.
- Bill Maher: ‘Work in the fields? Senator, I’m a house n*****.’
HBO left-wing host Bill Maher provoked fury by using the N-Word live on a Friday night episode of his show “Real Time”.
Maher was interviewing Republican Senator Ben Sasse and the pair were talking about how Maher should visit Sasse’s home state of Nebraska when he decided to use the n-word.
Mr. Sasse said: ‘We’d love to have you work in the fields with us.’
Mr. Maher replied: ‘Work in the fields? Senator, I’m a house n*****.’
He quickly added that ‘it’s a joke’ but groans and awkward laughs could be heard from the audience.
Fox News has lost yet another personality after a complaint lodged by another Fox employee.
Bob Beckel, cohost of The Five, was fired Friday after an internal investigation stemming specifically from interaction with an African American IT coworker in New York on Tuesday.
Beckel, 68, has been accused of a pattern of insensitive and racist behavior and will be the subject of a forthcoming lawsuit by the IT employee, according to a statement released by Wigdor LLP on Friday.
‘Bob Beckel was terminated today for making an insensitive remark to an African-American employee,’ the network said in a statement.
Douglas H. Wigdor and Jeanne Christensen, partners at Wigdor LLP, released a statement Friday detailing what they say happened leading up to Beckel’s firing.
‘Mr Beckel stormed out of his office when our client, a Black IT employee came to service his computer, telling our client that he was leaving his office because he is Black.
‘To make matters worse, after our client lodged a complaint about Mr Beckel’s racist behavior, Mr Beckel, in front of Chief Human Resource Officer Kevin Lord, attempted to intimidate our client and persuade him to withdraw his complaint. Because he would not do so, Fox, in what has now become common place, leaked the story on a Friday to minimize the attention drawn to Mr Beckel’s racist behavior.
A person close to the matter at Fox said the following:
‘HR was informed of the incident on Tuesday evening and did a thorough investigation within 48 hours of the matter. We came to a decision that Bob needed to be terminated early this morning.’
LATEST FAKE HATE! ST. OLAF COLLEGE ADMITS FAKE RACIST NOTE, SUBMITTED BY SAMANTHA WELLS WHO KNEW IT WAS A HOAX
- Student Samantha Wells, who reported the incident, claimed on social media that she was aware that the note was “fabricated” at the time that she submitted the report…“I will be saying it was a hoax. I don’t care. There is nothing more that I can do.”
Over and over we see fabricated hate crimes instigated by loony Democrats who are so desperate to portray Trump’s presidency as new era of racism that they believe they have to make as many hoaxes as possible in order to create their loony fantasy.
A racist note, that sparked week-long protest efforts by students at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota, was “fabricated,” according to administrators.
The note, which threatened a black female student and used an ethnic slur, was concocted as part of an ill-conceived attempt at political activism.
“This was not a genuine threat,” St. Olaf President David R. Anderson wrote on Wednesday to students. “We’re confident that there is no ongoing threat from this incident to individuals or the community as a whole.”
The note, Anderson added, was a “strategy to draw attention to concerns about the campus climate.”
Student Samantha Wells, who reported the incident, claimed on social media that she was aware that the note was “fabricated” at the time that she submitted the report.
“So, it looks like something made its way back to me in the investigation,” Wells wrote. “I will be saying it was a hoax. I don’t care. There is nothing more that I can do.”
- CNN: “It’s hard to manage black people” and “Who would be worth more: black slaves from times past, or new slaves?”
According to The New York Business Journal, CNN is facing class action lawsuit from 175 current and former employees, alleging racism at America’s liberal cable network. And theirs is worse than Fox News. Hey media, why the silent cricket treatment?
As many as 175 current and former employees of CNN have contacted lawyers about joining a class-action suit that alleges racism at the cable network.
The news comes as two other media organizations, The New York Times and Fox News, are also being sued.
According to the New York Post, the lawsuit against CNN claims that the Atlanta-based company is “rife with racism” and “bigoted remarks.”
“It’s hard to manage black people” and “Who would be worth more: black slaves from times past, or new slaves?” are just some of the statements alleged in the complaint, filed by former CNN executive assistant Celeslie Henley and Ernest Colbert Jr., a former manager at the affiliated Turner Broadcasting System.
Henley and Colbert Jr. , represented by attorney Daniel Meachum, also cite wage discrimination, claiming that they were both paid less than white counterparts.
CNN representatives did not respond to requests for comment.
MILK IS RACIST AND SYMBOL OF HATE, CLAIMS CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY NEWSPAPER WRITER SAMANTHA DIAZ…UNHINGED!
( Daily Wire ) Nothing is sacred anymore. While it does not surprise anyone that the Left says white girls cannot wear hoop earrings and that fraternities must admit women in defiance to the exceptions to Title IX of the Civil Rights Act, nothing can logically explain an opinion piece claiming that milk is racist.
Samantha Diaz, a staff writer for California State University-Long Beach’s student newspaper The Daily 49er, wrote an article claiming that white supremacists and neo-Nazis are appropriating milk as a symbol of hate. Here is the hook to her article:
When you think of milk, what first comes to your mind? If you’re a millennial, you probably think of strong bones, Got Milk? commercials, or maybe eating your favorite cereal while watching cartoons on a Saturday morning.
What about racism? White nationalism? If you’re having trouble finding the connection between these institutions and milk, you’re not alone. You, along with the rest of the nation, have been so accustomed to hearing the benefits of milk that you probably didn’t even realize the subtle racism hidden in our health facts.
Diaz then argued that the federal government’s endorsement of milk as a beneficial part of the country’s diet “contributes to the problem by uncritically pushing people to drink milk, despite the potential detriment it has on non-white people’s health.” She stated that because African-Americans do not suffer from osteoporosis, a bone disease, at the same rates as most Americans, the United States is promoting a racist agenda. She also argued that the trolls at 4chan who hijacked Shia LaBeouf’s “He Will Not Divide Us” shtick, drank milk to counter-protest him as a means of imposing white supremacy on the actor.
Diaz alluded to a scene in the new blockbuster hit Get Out where a white woman drinks a glass of milk with a bendy straw, saying that the film “highlights racism in post-racial America” and citing that as additional evidence that milk represents a status symbol for white supremacists. She also cited a Mother Jones article to further justify her assertions:
The Mother Jones article states that not only is milk non-beneficial to Africans, but following the guidelines may actually be detrimental to their health. There is a strong correlation to calcium consumption and an increased risk of prostate cancer, unproportionally affecting African men. Furthermore, both black children and adults generally secrete less calcium on a daily basis than white people, making them less dependent upon milk.
