The old professor does enjoy helping his readers understand history and its results…..so from time to time a history lesson is called for…….at least here on IST.
You know there are many incidents where one thing leads to another and politics is no different….a kinda political theorem…..
For instance….there are some that say that Trump has racist tendencies and that he is making moves that can be seen as unconstitutional….and his persecution of the press (media)…….but you know that he is not the first president to be said to have such thoughts….
Yes, really…..I am serious!
Woodrow Wilson it is said that he was a racist (claims that he was even a member of the KKK) and that some of his policies were unconstitutional…..
The Washington Times has published a piece where a hard look was taken at the presidency of Wilson. (take into consideration that the WT is a conservative media and will attack so-called “progressive” policies)
Wilson, the first college president to occupy the White House, banned blacks from government restrooms, was the first president to openly attack the U.S. Constitution and eagerly support laws to prosecute and imprison those who disagreed with his policies. His hostility to black Americans was matched only by his antipathy toward Italian, German and Irish Americans and his desire to rid the nation of those he referred to dismissively as “hyphenated Americans” and against who he railed incessantly.
Amazing that all the policies of Wilson that are so “progressive” are very similar to those of our new president, Donald J. Trump.
