By the Left’s own standards, most of their own great heroes — such as FDR and Woodrow Wilson — should also be stripped of every honor and tossed away in the trash bin of history too.
Democratic President Woodrow Wilson, one of the most important and influential progressive presidents in U.S. history, was a notorious racist who supported and expanded segregation. Democratic President Franklin Delano Roosevelt was also a horrific racist. In 1942, he shamefully imprisoned 112,000 Japanese Americans in concentration camps. In fact, the long history of the Democratic Party is full of racism, segregationist policies and support for radical white supremacism. It was the Democrats, not Republicans, who created the Jim Crow South and stood against civil rights for African-Americans for generations.
