With the current race climate, this Monday, we wanted to follow the breadcrumbs of history back to the Father of
Oppression Progressivism, Woodrow Wilson.
When it comes to old Woody, sure, our PD staff has touched on his miraculous resurrection of the KKK before, but this first Progressive really did so much more when it comes to the white sheet brigade.
According to Woodrow Wilson, “The white men were roused by a mere instinct of self-preservation…until at last there had sprung into existence a great Ku Klux Klan, a veritable empire of the South to protect the Southern country.”
Heck, he even screened Birth of a Nation at the White House.
Yes, in February 1915, this Democrat President held a special gala screening of the film based on the book originally titled, The Clansman, by Thomas Dixon.
In case you would also like to subject yourself to this three-hour long, piece of cinematic tripe, it is available now on YouTube.
