Woodrow Wilson Under the Bus


In a stunning reversal, and in solidarity with Princeton’s Black Justice League (PBJL), vile progs have tossed President Woodrow Wilson under the bus. PBJL took a page from Occupy’s playbook and Black Lives Matter’s playbook (hmmmmm) and occupied the president of Princeton’s office yesterday, vowing to stay until all of their demands were met. So vile prog fanboys will know the script, our pallid friend, Dylan Matthews has the Voxplanation.

…let’s be clear on one thing: Woodrow Wilson was, in fact, a racist pig. He was a racist by current standards, and he was a racist by the standards of the 1910s…

Easily the worst part of Wilson’s record as president was his overseeing of the resegregation of multiple agencies of the federal government, which had been surprisingly integrated as a result of Reconstruction decades earlier. At an April 11, 1913, Cabinet meeting, Postmaster General Albert Burleson argued for segregating the Railway Mail Service. He took exception to the fact that workers shared glasses, towels, and washrooms. Wilson offered no objection to Burleson’s plan for segregation, saying that he “wished the matter adjusted in a way to make the least friction.”

Both Burleson and Treasury Secretary William McAdoo took Wilson’s comments as authorization to segregate.

Yep. You read that right. Wilson dodged an issue and other people did stuff. Wilson looked the other way. And that’s exactly like if he himself had ordered and oversaw it.

Wilson also had the unmitigated gall to be from the south and a descendant of confederates. DUH. Racist!

Wilson was governor of New Jersey when he became president in 1913, but he had been born in Virginia and raised in Georgia and South Carolina.


Wilson himself was the descendant of Confederate soldiers..

He also had a book quote featured in Birth of a Nation! Nail, meet coffin.

Griffith Wilson Quote BoN

Then, of course there’s Wilson’s book from which the quote was taken. It was, btw, written with a co-author, and is just as racist as the day is long. There are three cherry-picked quotes to prove it! The book was copyrighted in 1902, btw, with no date for when the material was written. But you knows these vile progs today. It’s only okay if Obama evolves.

This is all a change of tune for progressives overall. Wilson has been a Great Progressive Hero, up there with FDR & JFK & LBJ. The only difference is the lack of acronym. And for the most part, they’ve been busy drawing comparisons between Woodrow Wilson and President Obama.

  1. Here’s the WaPo in 2009 saying that Obama is Wilson’s heir.
  2. Here’s the Daily Beast, also in 2009, talking up Obama’s Wilsonian Moment as he prepared for his Nobel Prize, a feat he shares in common with Wilson.
  3. Here’s Politico in 2012 talking about Wilson being the model for Obama’s 2nd term.
  4. Here’s a Georgetown University professor crowing about how awesome Wilson, and how he should be in the constellation of Democratic Presidents, and affixing Obama to Wilson along with it. Also 2013.
  5. Here’s The Week in 2013 taking pains to make sure you associate Obama with Wilson–and not G. W. Bush–when it comes to Syria.
  6. And here’s my personal favorite, a September 11, 2013 blog post by “The Progressive Professor” making the case that Obama is as awesome as Wilson, AND Teddy Roosevelt, AND Dwight D. Eisenhower, AND JFK. 11venty!!!!!1!!1!

These are a dime a dozen. You can find a ton on Google going back to Obama’s pre-election days. Wilson has always been a progressive superstar, until there was this recent need for him to be under the bus. Now you can forget about it, because it has been Voxplained to you that Obama Wilson is directly accountable for the actions of others, his heritage is questionable, and via the use of a very foggy lens in construing quotes from his co-authored book written well before he became president.

Never forget that the 28th POTUS is a racist pig scumbag lying sack of shit. The GD Overton Window has become a roving parasite on the left, one that seeks to latch on to any political ideology, even its own, and suck the blood right of it.

Obama and Wilson are exactly alike. Except they aren’t, because only one of them signed a constitutional amendment that expanded voting rights to 51% of the population, without any qualifiers or exceptions. I’m just sayin’.

    Just a campaign alert: If you get an e-mail from Breitbart pleading for a donation to Ted Cruz so he doesn’t have to drop out of the race, just ignore it. Apparently Cruz is using a Breitbart mailing list which is against the rules.


    • Myiq2xu says:

      I was unaware that Andrew Breitbart was assassinated. And I was under the impression that Breitbart.com was backing Trump.

      • Dora says:

        It’s believed that he was poisoned.

        • Myiq2xu says:

          Believed by who?

          • Dora says:

            It is believed by witnesses who were there and by his father-in-law, Orsen Bean. The fact that the coroner died suddenly of arsenic poisoning a day or two later added to the mystery.

          • blowme0bama says:

            It is suspicious, but I think the biggest thing is he was found with symptoms that were consistent with a type of poisoning from a substance that causes heart attacks but inconsistent with actual heart attacks(?). Also, coroner died real shortly afterwards. Going from memory from however long ago that was.

            Kind of like that death at pRes asshole’s church – very suspicious stuff, but nothing you can get a handle on.

          • votermom says:

            That was the really wierd part that makes me go hmmm.

          • Venus says:

            The coroner dying just a few days later is very suspicious.

            I realize this is all tinfoil hat stuff, but the entire thing makes me go “hmm” like votermom.

    Donald Trump and Family Talk to Barbara Walters About His Presidential Run, What His Kids Think of Their Upbringing, and How He Is Handling the Role of Grandpa Trump


    • DeniseVB says:

      Walters made that comment about how surprised she was Melania was so smart (implying she was a bimbo trophy wife) on one of the morning shows promoting the interview. I don’t think I was clear downstairs😉

  5. Myiq2xu says:

  6. DeniseVB says:

    I can’t believe Princeton caved on those demands, who’s next on the SJW wishlist of scrubbing history? Wilson was President of Princeton before he became NJ governor, then President.

    I scanned his wiki page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Woodrow_Wilson only to find out he was a much better and more accomplished President than Obama, and that was over 100 years ago. Woody won the Nobel Peace prize after WW1, so I guess he had to prove he was worthy of it unlike Obama’s participation award.

    100 years ago is a long time, there were still racial problems, though perhaps wiki scrubbed the bad parts like public hangings or whippings on the National Mall ? Not all our history is squeaky clean, but it’s our history. Including the clueless rabble rousers’ who always seem to have something to bitch and moan about. So annoying they are! ~Yoda

    • Right? But did Princeton actually give into many demands? I saw a couple of articles and it looked they just agreed to create a segregated space (ironic, right?) and to look into other stuff?

      • DeniseVB says:

        As far as I can tell Princeton agreed to think about their demands ? Probably giving the alum time to weigh in😉 Like Michelle Obama, heh, she hated it there.

        • leslie says:

          Michelle hated everywhere she lived. If they were to move to Dubai, she would find something to complain about.
          And BTW: She hated the people who live in the U of Chicago Hospital neighborhood so much she wrote the patient dumping policy for them that STILL remains in place. If she couldn’t complain about something, she’d have nothing to say.

          • DeniseVB says:

            As I recall, she got that job after Obama was elected to the Senate, then the UoC got a really nice federal grant. How convenient. Of course Chicago dirty tricks got him that Senate seat. He couldn’t even get elected to Congress on his first try.

          • Myiq2xu says:

            She got the job when Obama was in the Illinois senate, then she got a big raise when Obama went to D.C. After she quit (during the 2008 campaign) they eliminated the position.

        Lola, this was a really awesome post. My FB is FULL of WW fauxrage and… I have not had time to find out the truth. Thank you!

    • cynic says:

      As a book collector, I had to pull off my bookshelf, “The True Story of Woodrow Wilson”, by David Lawrence (1924). Here are a few quotes from the book. Yup, I could see the Obama comparison:

      “On one or two occasions Mr. Wilson was so much disturbed by newspaper attacks made upon him that he wrote to the newspapers and asked that certain reporters be removed from the White House assignment.”

      “Cynics and critics have risen to dissect the character and personality of the man. He has been catalogued as a phrase-maker, a dreamer, an intellectual autocrat; a dogmatic, stubborn pedagogue; an egotist wielding power with Napoleonic ambition; a breaker of friendships, the ungrateful recipient of personal and political service, with a confidence in himself superinduced by the feminine adulation which ran though his whole career. As a statesman he has been called radical, adventurous, opportunistic-a muddling idealist.

    Shorter Vile Progs: We agree with Glenn Beck.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Beck predicted the future under a President Obama too. I’m enjoying watching the progs eating their own, has anyone told them Wilson was a Democrat ? Heh.

      • cynic says:

        Beck is the reason why I currently have two books on Woodrow Wilson. The other is, “Woodrow Wilson as I Know Him” by Joseph Tumulty, Secretary to the President (1921)

        It’s important that we preserve these old books. History is being rewritten, and we know that we can’t always trust Wikipedia.

    • Somebody says:

      I thought about Beck too 1539!

      Denise I doubt these kids have a clue when WW served as POTUS, let alone his party affiliation. They just want to bitch and moan and be victims……oh and curl up in a safe space, SMH.

      You’re correct the progs are eating one of their own, hell many believe WW was basically the Godfather of modern progressivism which makes this all the more amusing to watch.

  11. The grill picture is hilarious. Who added that? DVB? Myiq? VM? It was the laugh I needed this morning.

  12. elliesmom says:

    Do the SJWs believe if they erase any public recognition of our history, history will change? Woodrow Wilson, like all of the presidents of Princeton, left a mark on the university. Taking his name off a building might make people less aware he was ever there, but his legacy, positive or negative, still remains. When I applied for my teaching license, one of the requirements in MA is you’ve taken a class that includes both the US Constitution and the MA state one. Rather than argue with the state about it, I took The History of American Politics at a local state university. In the first class meeting, the prof took us on a tour of the campus, pointing out all of the buildings and giving us the history of how the building got its name and who the people behind the names were. Since this was one of the first teachers’ colleges in the US and was started by Horace Mann, the names on the buildings provide a rich history, not only of the university, but also of the politics of public education. Whatever the personal failings of the people whose names are carved into the stone may have been, their commitment to public education was strong. I don’t know if Horace Mann committed any unpardonable sins, but if the SJWs can find one and get his name taken off all of the buildings and plaques, it won’t change the original philosophy of education that started the school, which was his.

  13. Dora says:

    The accusation of racism is getting tiring by now. Pres. Wilson has a lot more things on his record to be thrown under the bus for, including Prohibition, the Federal Reserve Act, Income Tax, and the influence of the despicable Col House who founded the Council of Foreign Relations. We can’t forget Wilson’s support of Eugenics and his push to legalize sterilizations. And of course, his worst offense might have been getting us into a war to ‘make the world safe for democracy’. The man was a disaster.

    • dm says:

      Well, given everything you referenced, if you add in the racist factor, then I guess Obama is just like Wilson.

    • DandyTIger says:

      All the things you mentioned is precisely why he’s a progressive hero. So funny that he’s being thrown under the bus. Identity politics never ends well.

      • Dora says:

        I’d better add that even though I despise the man, I don’t believe he should be obliterated. Removing his name is an insult to our history. I hate what’s been happening with these changes.

      • Yep. He did a lot of questionable things and inarguably violated constitutional principles on several fronts. He was also a master manipulator when it came to factions under his own tent. He did avoid some pushback on the segregation of some fed workers. He tried to sidestep the women’s suffrage issue and cynically claimed he “didn’t know” the suffragist imprisoned in the capitol he lived in where treated that badly. He lost that propoganda war and got on board, but only after he was no longer at risk in his 2nd term.

    • DeniseVB says:

      According to the wiki page, he won his second term based on the slogan “He kept us out of war”, then we entered WW1, lol.

      • leslie says:

        And… Obama won the Nobel PEACE Prize before he waged war on the American people who elected him. (Not to mention drone killings of civilians and “personally” signing of” on the drone targets.)

    • 1539days says:

      I feel the same way about Wilson as Trump. I don’t like them, but I don’t support these methods people are using to disparage them.

  14. Dora says:

    When did he meet with the Christians? I guess I must have missed that one.

    Student Fascists Win Again: Princeton to Chisel Woodrow Wilson’s Name Off Buildings

    PBJL and others of their ilk are moving dangerously in the direction of ISIS when they succeed in removing our history. They want to destroy what will become our antiquities. Power is intoxicating. Where will they stop? Who will stop them? Hopefully the alumni are not amused and will make it clear with the power of their money to put an end to this revolution while it is still in its infancy.

    The destruction of middle eastern antiquities and beheading of Khaled Asaad, the 82-year-old archaeologist, who had been in charge of overseeing the ancient site at Palmyra in Syria shows how far extremists can go when they are allowed to metastasize.

    The Dems’ useful idiots are finding out how racist the Dem/progressive history is.


  22. gram krakka says:

    Immigration experts give President Obama Pinocchios for his claim that the U.S. has never used “religious tests” to determine which refugees get passage to America.

    Russian and Ethiopian Jews, Armenians Christians and Catholics from Vietnam have all been moved to the front of the line in previous eras based on their faith, according to historians. And giving one religious group preference is tantamount to sending others to the back of the lines, noted immigration experts.

    Under the 1990 law known as the Lautenberg Amendment, the federal government initially granted a presumption of refugee eligibility for Jews and Christians fleeing the former Soviet Union and Southeast Asia. Nowadays, the amendment, extended last year by Obama, prioritizes the resettlement of Jews, Christians, Baha’is, and other religious minorities who flee Iran.


    • DeniseVB says:

      I hear none of the Syrian refugees are Christians ? I would think priority should go to the ones in most danger because religion of peace likes to torture and kill them ?

      • Jadzia says:

        Wikipedia and other sources (al Jazeera, American Conservative, Christian missionary groups) seem to say that the percentage of Christians in Syria is somewhere between 6-15% of the population. But who knows if they are overrepresented, underrepresented, or neither in the group of people who are leaving.

    Great post, Lola!

    My first encounter with Woodrow Wilson was as a kid reading A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. The main character overhears grown-ups talking about the next election and one said Wilson, since he was a Democrat, would be a war president. Somehow that always stuck in my mind.

      What a ridiculous and “insulting to all women” comment by Barbara Walter. She is basically saying that when she sees beautiful women she thinks that they are stupid . It’s worse, I think, because she is a woman herself. And I say this without being in the Trump camp yet.

    • Ooooh, pie! Good luck!

    • swanspirit says:

      When I baked my first apple pie , I didn’t know how many apples to put in it, so I used a whole 5lb bag of apples. After i put the top crust on, it looked like a small mountain of apple pie. But it was delicious! Good Luck!!

      • leslie says:

        What a happy story for a first pie! We used so many apples that even after piling them higher and higher, we still had left over apple slices. So we put them in a bowl (they were already tossed with cinnamon, sugar and a little flour) so the little girls had apples with their apple pie. and so did the grown-ups. 😉

    • votermom says:

      apple pie is the bestest of pies

      I’m baking pies for Thanksgiving week starting tonight. First Key Lime, then our favorite French Apple (crumb topping instead of pie pastry), Chocolate Pecan and of course Pumpkin.
      My wonderful gd, the beautiful Eleanor of Arlington, graduates from peanut allergy desensitization this coming Wednesday – something for which we are truly thankful! To celebrate we will be making peanut butter cookies with Hershey Kisses in the thumbprint. She will have to eat peanut butter everyday for the rest of her life to maintain desensitization. She hates PB.

      • How does one graduate from peanut allergy desensitizaton? What does that even mean?

      • leslie says:

        You are making me grin from ear to ear😀 The apple pie was a crumb topping (my preference) and it was definitely a fun way to start. I hope your pies all turn out as well as this one did for me. (beginner’s luck I suppose) And that your Thanksgiving is simply wonderful. (I’m with Eleanor of Arlington re: PB)

    • cynic says:

      Apple pie, my favorite! My neighbor use to have cooking classes in her kitchen. She always told us to use a variety of apples in the pie. I think we’ve all had apples that haven’t had much juice, or ones that lacked a good apple flavor, etc. If you use three or four varieties, you’ll be saved.

      • leslie says:

        Thanks! The pie turned out well.🙂 In fact, my family wants me to make this for Thanksgiving AND for Christmas! I’ll try using more than one type of apple the next time. Do you have some that you prefer for pies? I used Granny Smith this time and I read/used several “adjustments” to the original recipe. I feel so good about the end result. There’s nothing left over. I think that’s a good sign, don’t you?

        • cynic says:

          Yea! Granny Smith is definitely the #1 apple for pies. So glad everything turned out. My first attempt at making a pie crust occurred a couple of months after getting married. It wasn’t a pleasant memory. The crust fell apart, pieces of dough had fallen everywhere, hubby came in to try to help, and he was stepping on all the pieces that had fallen on the floor, smooshing them into his socks. I can’t remember how long it took for me to try making another one. Once you find a good pie dough recipe, stick with it.

          I and another woman gave a program on pie making for our Herb Guild. It was a fun program. We had a pie contest, I found old pie baking recipe books on ebay to give as door prizes, and it made me try numerous pie crust recipes (one w/vodka, one w/egg, one w/vinegar, one w/lard, one w/butter). I still go back to one I’ve been using for years. It’s easy to work with, and comes out flaky.

          Here’s a link to a suggestion for other apples to try in a blend.

          Oh, and I forgot to mention in the story of my first pie crust. I beat the pie tin, and put a permanent dent in the pan.

        • That’s a great sign! The best compliment to the chef.
