The most celebrated Democratic presidents are also – by far – the most race-obsessed. These American presidents care much less about content of character than they do about melanin levels. Whether their obsession is how black Americans can help launch the Democrats into power, such as in the case of Lyndon B. Johnson; or if the disdain for the “other” is really just straight-up racism, such as in the case of Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the common thread – of progressivism – remains.
5.) Lyndon B. Johnson
Several particularly egregious and racist quotes have been attributed to LBJ. As observed at the Huffington Post, LBJ said in 1948 that President Truman’s civil rights proposal…
…is a farce and a sham…I have voted against the so-called poll tax repeal bill … I have voted against the so-called anti-lynching bill.
So why was LBJ for Republican-passed civil rights legislation in 1964 (a watered-down version of the 1957 civil rights legislation under Eisenhower), but against it in 1948? Just like President Obama, LBJ was evidently not concerned about the plight of black Americans but rather about the continuation of a progressive agenda.
Consider that LBJ’s failed “$20 trillion taxpayer-funded war on poverty” known as the Orwellion-sounding “great society” program has been the single greatest contributor of the breakdown of black families in America.
As noted at Business Insider:
There is more drug addiction and more social and family breakdown among this population than when the Great Society was launched.
LBJ pushed ahead with his “great society” program “which gave rise to Medicaid, Head Start and a broad range of other federal anti-poverty programs,” declaring that “negroes” are “getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness….” and claimed further that his efforts would secure the vote of the “nig*ers” for “200 years.”
As noted in 2013 at the Washington Post:
“Nearly 50 years after the release of the U.S. Department of Labor report ‘The Negro Family: The Case for National Action,’ which was highly controversial and widely criticized at the time [as it was released at the time of the unveiling of the “Great Society”], the new Urban Institute study found that the alarming statistics in the report back then ‘have only grown worse, not only for blacks, but for whites and Hispanics as well.'”
4.) Bill Clinton
In 1992, Bill Clinton told the New York Times that it was a “mistake” for him to golf at an all-white country club and for good measure, further accused then-President George H.W. Bush and Republicans “of dividing the country racially.”
When Bill Clinton selected global warming fear monger Al Gore as his Vice President, it clearly did not bother him that Gore’s dad walked “arm-in-arm with other segregationist Democrats to kill the Civil Rights act of 1964.” It further did not occur to Bill Clinton to distance himself from “notorious segregationist,” racist, pro-communist, and anti-Semitic “mentor” former Arkansas Sen. J. William Fulbright, who “was one of ninety-nine congressional Democrats to sign the Southern Manifesto, which declared that the Southern states had a right to keep their populations segregated by race.”
As an aside, the famous Fulbright fellowship has been recently renamed to the “J. William Fulbright – Hillary Rodham Clinton Fellowship.”
The Southern Manifesto, by the way, “was signed by 101 members of the U.S. Congress, including 19 senators and 82 members of the House of Representatives. Ninety-nine of them were Democrats.”
As reported at National Review, Bill Clinton was among “three state officials the NAACP sued in 1989 under the federal Voting Rights Act of 1965” for suppressing the black vote. Quoting the Arkansas Gazette from December 6, 1989, the article continues: “Plaintiffs offered plenty of proof of monolithic voting along racial lines, intimidation of black voters and candidates and other official acts that made voting harder for blacks…the evidence at the trial was indeed overwhelming that the Voting Rights Act had been violated…”
The article continues:
During his 12-year tenure, Governor Clinton never approved a state civil-rights law. However, he did issue birthday proclamations honoring Confederate leaders Jefferson Davis and Robert E. Lee. He also signed Act 116 in 1987. That statute reconfirmed that the star directly above the word “Arkansas” in the state flag “is to commemorate the Confederate States of America.” Arkansas also observed Confederate Flag Day every year Clinton served…
According to the book Game Change, as reported in an article at the NY Daily News, Bill Clinton was hoping for the late Ted Kennedy’s endorsement for his wife Hillary as President but Kennedy threw his support behind Obama, prompting Clinton to say, “the only reason you are endorsing him is because he’s black. Let’s just be clear.”
Clinton allegedly added,
A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee.
3.) Franklin Delano Roosevelt
FDR spoke at the 1924 Democrat National Convention, also known as the “Klanbake” for the “heavy representation of Ku Klux Klan-friendly delegates,” as reported at the Wall Street Journal. According to Digital History, after the Klanbake, “some 20,000 Klan supporters wearing white hoods and robes held a picnic in New Jersey…”
Roosevelt appointed “confidant” James Byrnes to the Supreme Court, who was so powerful that he was known as the “assistant president on the home front” and who “believed in racial segregation…and worked to defeat anti-lynching bills introduced in Congress.”
Despite the fact that Byrnes was not elected by the people, FDR “assigned Byrnes more powers than ever held by a public official.”
Even worse, FDR appointed prominent Ku Klux Klan member Hugo Black to the Supreme Court. Black’s involvement in the KKK was confirmed by Pittsburgh Post-Gazette journalist Ray Sprigle, a journalist who won a “Pulitzer Prize for Reporting” for his exposé.
As reported at Liberty Unyielding, the revelation was a massive scandal at the time.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt additionally refused to meet with black Olympian Jesse Owens. As reported at the Daily Mail:
President Franklin Roosevelt never congratulated Owens or invited him to the White House. ‘Hitler didn’t snub me – it was FDR who snubbed me,’ Owens said.
But all of the above offenses pale in comparison to Roosevelt’s Executive Order 9066, which “authorized the internment of tens of thousands of American citizens of Japanese ancestry and resident aliens from Japan.” Some Germans and Italians were also interned. Expressing about his position on German and Italian Americans during World War II, Roosevelt stated “I don’t care so much about the Italians, they are a lot of opera singers, but the Germans are different. They may be dangerous.”
As an aside, in 1945, speaking of a Japanese soldier who lost his life defending America, then-Captain Ronald Reagan said,
Blood that has soaked into the sand of a beach is all one color. America stands unique in the world, the only country not founded on race, but on a way, an ideal.
The Japanese faced discrimination even after they returned home by groups “such as the American Legion, Native Sons of the Gold West, and labor unions…”
Not surprisingly, FDR’s Supreme Court, including Hugo Black – who wrote the majority opinion) later found the civil rights horror to be Constitutional.
Perhaps the Supreme Court is not infallible, after all.
2.) Woodrow Wilson
“It is untenable, in view of the established facts, to maintain that the segregation is simply to avoid race friction, for the simple reason that for fifty years white and colored clerks have been working together in peace and harmony and friendliness, doing so even through two Democratic administrations. Soon after your inauguration began, segregation was drastically introduced in the Treasury and Postal departments by your appointees.”
– Monroe Trotter to Woodrow Wilson, imploring him to stop rampant segregation in Wilson’s Administration
Progressive hero Woodrow Wilson may be glorified as a “leader of the Progressive Movement” on the federal government website; but this disturbed President was not only racist, he almost single-handedly brought about the resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan in America.
As reported at Liberty Unyielding:
The Ku Klux Klan persecuted black Americans and their white Republican advocates, along with Catholics and Jewish people. The Ku Klux Klan enjoyed a “resurgence” in 1915, thanks mainly to the film, “The Birth of a Nation,” which was based on Thomas Dixon’s “The Clansman.” Thomas Dixon was a “longtime political supporter, friend and former classmate of [Woodrow] Wilson’s at Johns Hopkins University.”
Woodrow Wilson screened “The Birth of a Nation” in the White House. In fact, it was the very first film to ever be shown at the White House. Woodrow Wilson himself was quoted in the film from his own book, A History of the American People.
In his book, Wilson wrote:
“The white men of the South were aroused by the mere instinct of self-preservation to rid themselves, by fair means or foul, of the intolerable burden of governments sustained by the votes of ignorant negroes and conducted in the interest of adventurers.”
This is how it looked (modified) in the movie:
If one Googles “intolerable burden of governments sustained by the votes of ignorant negroes,” one is led right to the passage in Wilson’s book, where he continues to breathlessly glorify the Ku Klux Klan.
Wilson was not surprisingly a huge supporter of segregation and even “extended and defended segregation in the federal civil service. Black workers were forced to use inferior and segregated washrooms, and screens were set up to separate black and white workers in the same government offices.”
One quote by Woodrow Wilson not taught in history class:
Segregation is not a humiliation but a benefit, and ought to be so regarded by you gentlemen.
Woman’s Suffrage Leader Alice Stokes Paul would also take exception to the portrayal of Wilson as a civil rights leader.
As reported at TavernKeepers.com:
“After Wilson ignored the Woman’s Suffrage movement, he was finally forced, as a stated “war measure”, and only after increasing pressure from Paul and the National Women’s Party, to promote the [Constitutional] amendment. After Democratic Senators filibustered to prevent a roll call, the amendment was finally passed [granting women the right to vote]. Ayes including 36 (82%) Republicans and 20 (54%) Democrats.”
Ironically, the Democratic Party Website brazenly uses racist Democrat Woodrow Wilson as an example of Civil Rights. They state, “Under the leadership of Democratic President Woodrow Wilson, the U.S. Constitution was amended to grant women the right to vote.”
1). Barack Obama
Like FDR and LBJ, President Obama indeed favors the insidious soul-crushing* (see quotes below) welfare programs that are detrimental to society as a whole, having a particular negative impact on Hispanic and black communities (as noted in the 2014 “Welfare Indicators and Risk Factors” report from HHS: “recipiency and dependency rates are higher for Non-Hispanic Blacks and Hispanics of any race than they are for NonHispanic Whites.”)
Under Obama, food stamps have doubled (Food Stamps also doubled under George W. Bush, from $17 billion to $38 billion, then doubled again under Obama, to $78 billion), CNS found that “38 percent of all children 5 and under in the United States were welfare recipients in 2011” (the latest year data is available from previously-mentioned HHS report), and as reported last year at Policy Mic, the welfare state is growing faster than jobs are being created.
As observed at National Review Online, the culture of racial politics has permeated other areas in the government. Members of the Black Caucus, for example, “now routinely either allege outright racism or exhibit racist attitudes themselves if opposition arises to the Obama agenda.”
Obama additionally is obsessed with skin color to the point of idiocy (as is his wife) – using identity politics ad nauseum to divide Americans seemingly in any way possible – not just by race, but by gender, sexual orientation, religion, wealth, and anything else that can be used to divide, confuse and polarize.
A little-known fact about President Obama is that he is a believer in the Constitutionally abhorrent “disparate impact” legal theory, which basically ignores the root causes of racial disparities and instead seeks to remedy perceived wrongs after the fact. One example of this are the policies that led to the financial collapse in 2008. Read Neil Munro’s article at the Daily Caller to find out how Obama himself contributed to the financial collapse.
But President Obama is easily the number one racist president because his obsession with skin color is a cover for something much more insidious.
President Obama wants communist revolution.
The author does not make this claim lightly.
Throughout his life, Barack Obama has been surrounded by Communist Party members, Democrat Socialist of America activists and other assorted leftist radicals. Trevor Loudon, expert on socialist and radical movements and author of “Barack Obama and the Enemies Within,” and his latest jaw-dropping book, “The Enemies Within: Communists, Socialists and Progressives in the U.S. Congress” was the first to make the connection with the Hawaiian Communist Frank Marshall Davis. Loudon also exposed former “Green Czar” Van Jones as a Communist working in the Obama Administration.
One thing all of these radical groups have in common is the relentless exploitation of racial and class divisions as a strategy employed to break down American social structure.
But Obama was not only acquainted with Communist card carrying member Frank Marshall Davis; He is also deeply enmeshed with key advisers David Axelrod and Valerie Jarrett, both of whom have family and professional ties to Communist Party USA.
Obama also has been acquainted with radicals from:
- Democratic Socialists of America
- New Party/Progressive Chicago
- Communist Party USA
- Committees of Correspondence
- the Labor Movement
- ACORN & Project Vote
- Council for a Livable World
President Obama and those surrounding him carefully, deliberately and painstakingly degrade and dismantle the Constitution and the founding fathers at every turn; they attempt to marginalize and vilify patriotic Americans because patriotic groups such as the Tea Party are the only force standing in their path to the slow march to communism and global governance.
* See the following quotes and learn from history:
“The lessons of history, confirmed by the evidence immediately before me, show conclusively that continued dependence upon relief induces a spiritual and moral disintegration fundamentally to the national fibre. To dole out relief in this way is to administer a narcotic, a subtle destroyer of the human spirit. It is inimical to the dictates of sound policy. It is in violation of the traditions of America. Work must be found for able-bodied but destitute workers. The Federal Government must and shall quit this business of relief.” – FDR, Annual Message to Congress, January 4, 1935
“Because it is right, because it is wise, and because, for the first time in our history, it is possible to conquer poverty, I submit, for the consideration of the Congress and the country, the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964.” – Lyndon B. Johnson’s Special Message to Congress, March 16, 1964
The “…steady expansion of this welfare program [FDR’s Social Security Act of 1935], as of public assistance programs in general, can be taken as a measure of the steady disintegration of the Negro family structure over the past generation in the United States” – United States Department of Labor report published in March 1965
