Nixon, now and forever ....
More than 2,200 hours of tape recordings from the Nixon White House now are available
Dig it. The heirs of Warren G Harding have managed to keep his personal papers unavailable.
“The Harding-Phillips love letters remain under an Ohio court protective order that expires in 2023, 100 years after Harding’s death, after which the content of the letters may be published or reviewed.”
Poor Nixon. He’s online but Harding’s not dead enough.
Topple the statues, remove his name from all public roads and buildings....
well see how far this story goes in the US MSM,
By harping on nonexistent and never achievable equality, the leaders of the fictitious Black Community have actually destroyed their race. The result of their corruption has been the development of festering feral enclaves.
Rather than progress, the urban black enclaves have devolved into the Aricanized wilds. Deetroit and Baltimore are the poster cities but Philadelphia and Newark and perhaps Wilmington are on the same course.
They sealed the tapes, and then forced through a national holiday - against the wishes of the American people.
He was the official biographer and who had to credentials to secure docs through FOIA if he wanted to. The sealed tapes are nothing new, asking why probably led him to the FBI docs.
Agreed and I didn’t even know the part about communist.
The more that is found about him the more of a disgrace he is.
He loved him some prostitutes too.
I could even live with an even keeled representation of his life.
but that will never happen.
evil, disgusting racism in the 50s & 60s.
Information is already available proving John Lewis has been involved sexually with an undetermined number of women.
Tear down his monument in the mall. Eliminate MLK day. Rename the streets named after him in all the cities. #MeToo
Whos trying to bury what story by bringing all this crap up now?
Rename them #metoo Blvd.
It has appeared through history that great people had sexual perversions and secrets. Sometimes I wish we didnt have to know them.
Yes, I do think we need in general to understand that even good people can have major flaws. And we need to de-pedestal the ones who engaged in crimes (sounds like MLK might be one of these). We need to know most truths. We want the truth and we need to be able to HANDLE the truth.
This is just personal desire, because I am fascinated by mental health, but I also revere privacy: I dont need to know sexual details about great people in the past, from their kinks or organs or orientations. But yes, if they were secretly committing crimes or clearly harming people, Id like to weigh their good deeds against that and stop any admiration.
Bill Cosby is a good example. His good comedy is forever tarnished in my mind because THERE ARE FUNNIER MEN WHO DIDNT NEED TO DRUG AND RAPE WOMEN. So his work is trash to me now that I know. Tim Conway who passed recently didnt have to do any of that, and was far funnier. Bill Cosby was a blight on the planet no matter how funny he might have been. Sum total is a negative for him. He had a choice of life and he chose to be a serial rapist.
So MLK may not make it through this revelation either. Some amazing speeches, bravery to fight for human rights, but if hes involved in cruel rapes...
You've got me all wrong. I think trashing MLK is a stupid move strategically for conservatives.
My point is this -- MLK's message - that we should judge people not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character - is a conservative message today, and is a perfect weapon to use against the leftists and Social Justice Warriors. His opposition to segregation in all forms stands in direct opposition to the leftists now pushing for black-only graduations, etc..
For Republicans to push those messages of MLK is hoisting leftists on their own petard. It forces them to distance themselves from and even to trash MLK. It is a weapon that can help drive an even bigger wedge between racist progressives and many blacks who are starting to question their allegiance to the Democrat party. Trump made significant inroads among black males, and is continuing to do so as the economy improves.
How does trashing MLK help us with any of that? It's handing the leftists a weapon that should be our own: "See, those evil conservatives even trash a guy who urged color-blindness and peaceful opposition. They're clearly interested in neither, so any black people considering supporting Trump should see them for the racists they are."
We're shooting ourselves in the foot by attacking MLK.
You're exactly right. MLK's message on race-relations is now our message, and trashing him is trashing a guy whose speeches on race should be one of our most effective tools to expose the race-baiters.
That came out wrong and I apologize.
But nobody quotes or remembers him for any socialist beliefs -- the left themselves buried that. What people remember him for -- the reason he is seared into the national memory -- is what he said about race and treating people in a color-blind manner. That's what people remember, and that's what's being trashed when you trash him.
We ought to be quoting his statements on race 24/7, and jamming it down the throats of the leftists at every opportunity.
I will add that this would be a 2fer or even a 3fer for the leftist deep state.
— creates noise and distraction at a time when people should have their eye on the ball
— implies a linkage between release of intel and racism
— destroys a black leader who the left now hates
