Much like Teddy Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson helped pave the way for modern progressivism. A movement which devours individual rights, replacing them with the collective, guided by a central government with an unquenchable appetite for power and control. Much like today’s democrat party, Wilson was a racist and an elite, with little regard for the unenlightened masses. Wilson’s perception of the hapless American people was “Men are as clay in the hands of the consummate leader.”
Moreover his perception of other races was very evident and ugly:
“self-preservation [forced whites] to rid themselves, by fair means or foul, of the intolerable burden of governments sustained by the votes of ignorant Negroes.”
“At a Cabinet meeting early in the Administration, Southern members expressed disingenuous concern over alleged friction between Negro and white government employees. Postmaster General Albert S. Burleson, a Texan, proposed segregating the races to eliminate the supposed problem. Secretary of the Treasury William Gibbs McAdoo supported him. … The rest of the Cabinet, along with the President, while not explicitly endorsing segregation, did not oppose it.”
– Woodrow Wilson
Much like the elitist contemporaries of both parties, Wilson believed we must keep third world people dominated through lies and manipulation. He championed the deceiving rhetoric of being opposed to WW1. “The object of this war is to deliver the free peoples of the world from the menace and the actual power of a vast military establishment controlled by an irresponsible government which, having secretly planned to dominate the world, proceeded to carry the plan out without regard either to the sacred obligations of treaty or the long-established practices and long-cherished principles of international action and honor; which chose its own time for the war; delivered its blow fiercely and suddenly; stopped at no barrier either of law or of mercy; swept a whole continent within the tide of blood–not the blood of soldiers only, but the blood of innocent women and children also, and of the helpless poor; and now stands balked, but not defeated, the enemy of four-fifths of the world.”
F.D.R would soon follow Wilson’s deceit and bring The United States into WW2; two of the deadliest wars, both entered by progressive democrats. Progressive’s hardly believe in the Constitution much less the ideals of our Founding Fathers. Wilson’s ideals were especially elitist. “[W]e must demand that the individual shall be willing to lose the sense of personal achievement, and shall be content to realize his activity only in connection to the activity of the many,” Most thinking people would equate this quote with that of Karl Marx.
Wilson’s influence on today’s progressive cadre is glaring, with such insidious characters as George W. Bush, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John McCain, Bill Clinton, Mitt Romney, and others. These global gangsters wield their influence and power by substantial wealthy. They pretend that they have their greedy little fingers on the pulse of the world, but are only interested in enslaving it.
