  •  Buchanan is an all-purpose religious bigot (2+ / 0-)

       not just an anti-semite.  He doesn't like Islam and he also has disparaged my (non)-religious peeps--atheists and agnostics.

        I've often wondered if he is even more backward thinking than President Buchanan, whose term ended 150 years ago. (James Buchanan was one of the forgettable ones before Lincoln.)

      who was in the KKK.

      if the KKK were socially acceptable to be a part of, buchanan would certainly be in it

      •  Wilson was in the KKK? (0+ / 0-)

        I know that Wilson had poor connections with the black community (one example is when he viewed "Birth of a Nation" at the WH), but I had no idea it was this bad.

          it harding might have been the one in the KKK

          regardless, both wilson and harding were supporters of the organization

            Wilson took his southern outlooks and feelings towards race with him to the White House. Almost upon taking office, he fired most of the African Americans who held posts within the federal government, and segregated the Navy, which until then had been desegregated. Many of the newly segregated parts of Wilson’s federal government would remain so, clear into the 1950s.
