As long as a Republican sat in the White House, those victories were enforced. In 1957, President Dwight D. Eisenhower sent the 101st Airborne to Little Rock, Ark., to walk black children to school in defiance of the segregationist, Democratic governor of Arkansas, Orval Faubus — Bill Clinton’s friend.
This is what our Constitution was designed for: to use the force of the federal government to uphold the law when the states couldn’t (Shays’ Rebellion) or wouldn’t (segregationist Democrats).
If Richard Nixon had won the 1960 election instead of John F. Kennedy — as some say he did — there never would have been a need for Rosa Parks, the Freedom Rides and the rest of the civil disobedience of the civil rights movement.
But as soon as the Democrats got control of the White House, enforcement of the Supreme Court’s civil rights rulings came to a crashing halt. Elected Democrats in the states were free to violate legitimate constitutional rulings without interference from Democratic presidents.
I point this out because the Demoncrats and the MSM (that’s redundant, by the way) have been sh*tting bricks at the idea that a black conservative might actually win the Republican nomination for President, setting up a situation where a black man is running to replace another black man in the White House. The planned on argument of RAAAAAAAAAAAAAACISM will be much harder to use (not that they won’t try). It would be useful for all conservatives to consistently point out that the Demoncrats wer the pro-slavery party (and still are if you think that welfare dependency is a form of slavery) that the Demoncrats were the party of Jim Crow, that KKK members were usually Demoncrats and Robert Byrd was a Klavern head at one time.
It is the Demoncrats that wish to do away with meritocracy, which, by the way is how Herman Cain succeeded in business, and replace it with quotas based entirely on the color of one’s skin. Didn’t Martin Luther King rail against that? Something about being judged by the content of our character not the color of our skin? Never mind. Nothing to see here. Move on.
The OWS bums are not interested in justice – they are interested in anarchy. If they were really interested in Justice they would be marching on the White House not on Zuchini Park or whatever the place is. If they want to know why they don’t have jobs, perhaps they should look in the mirror. That $250,000 loan you got for seven years of liberal arts and humanities studies leading to a BA in Cross-Ethnic Gender Studies will not get you a job. Neither will the 2 dozen piercings you have scattered about your face. It’s not my fault you chose to be a lazy shiftless idiot studying worthless socialist bullsh*t on your Demoncrat sanctioned student loan. I have judged your character and find it greatly wanting. Give me a Herman Cain any day.
By the way, compare pictures of the ground where the OWS’ers have been and where a Tea Party rally has been. Go ahead. I dare you.
