The biggest tragedy of the Civil Rights Era is that it has long since become a source of political symbolism and influence for hucksters who are not worthy of the mantle of those who originally fought for human equality and dignity:
…when the president spoke before an audience in Selma back in 2007, Obama credited the civil rights march as the inspiration for his conception. The only problem with that, as conservative pundit Michelle Malkin points out, is that the president was already three years old when the march occurred in 1965.
Naturally the mass media, which is essentially the wholly-owned propaganda arm of the U.S.
Socialist Democratic Party, will work to ensure nothing harshes their carefully constructed narrative on such issues as Selma.
The reality? It was Democrats keeping minorities down back then, and it’s Democratic policies keeping minorities (wages and employment) down today. It’s a shame that over 50 years’ time, efforts originally intended to increase individual freedom have been subverted into a touchstone for a statist ideology that is stifling individual freedom today.
