And every knows that a clockwork analog time machine is way better than a digital time machine on a chip.

Naw subby, It was still just Obama's time machine. O went back, grabbed Hitler, and the two of them went back even further to have a couple of beers with Wilson.

Johnson, who advises Tremblay on historical matters, cited many of the beliefs held by supporters of the alternative 13th Amendment. He said that the amendment was ratified and then removed from the Constitution by President Abraham Lincoln, adding that Lincoln's actions dissolved the United States and that the president did not emancipate the slaves. Johnson also claimed that the United States is still subject to Lincoln's declaration of martial law and is now under the control of Queen Elizabeth II.


... wow.

I just ... OK.  F*ck this, I'm going to have more to drink, instead of dwelling on the fact that this nut is picking up a no-doubt decent paycheck while I'm unemployed.

You're avoiding the truth here: Barack Obama isWoodrow Wilson.
 
2013-03-01 09:13:07 PM  
Woodrow Wilson, because he was a sympathizer and he believed in the Aryan race, he believed that Hitler was correct in the races

He went through all the educational material and wiped out all the -- all anything that he could about the true history,
  about how the slaves were a really good integral part

Wait Hitler was wrong but slavery was good, this would make sense if I was drunk wouldn't it?

In cases like this, twelve people should be selected at random from across the country and the question put to them: does this person deserve to keep her job? Does she deserve to keep her freedom? If the majority votes no she is immediately fired, then involuntarily committed. The primary criterion for this treatment is a refusal to recognize the authority of the government at whatever level combined with a position of authority in said government. Next on the list: Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

I love the derpa durr the right spews about Wilson after Glenn Beck explained to them he was a scary, scary man a few years ago. It's certainly historical fact Wilson imprisoned Americans and was an all around dick. Hundreds of thousands of patriotic conservative Americans locked up to make way for the COMMUNAZI FEDERAL RESERVE CONTROLLED BY EVIL JEWS INFLATING THE MONEY SUPPLY  WHO GET THEIR SUSTENANCE FROM THE SORROW AND ANGUISH OF WHITE PROTESTANTS!...

...Oh wait, he attacked the IWW and the American left after the Bolsheviks took over and the perfect opportunity to crush serious dissenters arose. Looks like Glenn forgot that part; I'm sure it was unintentional.

Well sure, but you have to understand that all the leaders of the free world had time machines at their disposal back then.

Churchill had the TARDIS, for example.

This isn't as crazy as it seems. Hitler's idea of a "master white race" (meaning nordic/northern european) wasn't new or novel. The concept of degenerate races had been around since the 19th century. It had many adherents, and it's sadly still somewhat embedded in our collective consciousness to this day. To give an example, there's still a fascination with "lost civilizations" and this craze started believe it or not when they found the ruins of the Mali empire in Africa and thought "there must be a lost civilization of white people," which worked it's way into popular fiction. A lot of the Conan works are based on this concept. Because it was completely outside people's thought patterns that black people could possibly have had a technologically advanced culture. Mormon beliefs are that white people "degenerated" into Native Americans. These notions of a race hierarchy also worked its way into Nazi ideology -- but they took it a step further to "we must defend our superior white culture from degeneration."

Whether or not Wilson believed in these sorts of race theories, I have no idea. I'm just saying that Stella Tremblay who I hadn't heard of until reading this article is not necessarily incorrect simply because Hitler rose to power after Wilson died.

Many, many people supported the idea of Eugenics in the first half of the 20th century in the United States. If you look at the history of mental health laws during that time, MANY states had laws requiring the mentally ill or defective had to be sterilized to prevent them from passing their 'diseases' on. In addition, Anti-Separatism in the United States paralleled that of the Germans during the great depression and before. Hitler's policies and beliefs found a great amount of purchase among the US's rich and powerfully influential industrialists, like Henry Ford, and even among people like Charles Lindbergh. Many, many people initially supported Nazi Germany's policies, and it wasn't until the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor that it even began to change. There were even talks of the US entering the war on the side of Germany before the attack took place.

If you think it couldn't, or didn't happen here, you're dead wrong.

That's because they've dug a deep enough hole for themselves that the lunatic fringe is the only parent of their base they can really count on anymore. They've already lost the moderates. Out-crazying everybody else is the only way to survive primaries anymore.

Well, it's not exactly a secret that Wilson was a dick to minorities, but somehow I don't think he systematically purged historical records "about how the slaves were a really good integral part." Also, where the hell did that come from? Why did she even bring him up for a speech about Black History month?

I think she was making a point reconciling strict constitutionalism with slavery (that the founders were against slavery). And that we don't hear much about it because Wilson though government expansion related to WWI used the fact we were updating educational materials to remove this notion.

Anyway, I don't know enough whether to agree or disagree. But it's not "hey wilson had a time machine" level crazy.

BronyMedic: If you think it couldn't, or didn't happen here, you're dead wrong.


You can't play down the significant anti-Nazi sentiment that existed well before we entered the war. You're right, it could have happened here (and still could)... but it wasn't likely.

Fixing up an old house we discovered layers and layers of newspaper laid out below a linoleum floor (insulation). I saw the dates on the papers and took to reading them on breaks... found an article a full year before we entered the war where 100 US vets drunkenly crashed a 1000 person pro-nazi gathering in upstate NY

(csb: the outnumbered vets cleaned house,  the police arrested many Nazi sympathizers but no vets.. despite them being the aggressors :P)

Hollywood was hammering home the message all they could.

My grandparents told me stories of the US govt paying German-Americans to keep an ear open for any suspicious activity. My grandmother never served in the military but because of that program was buried as a 1st LT at Indiantown Gap. (grandpa was a Navy cook during the war)

There were plenty willing to entertain both sides... in times of great struggle people are always hedging their bets and not wanting to be on the losing side.

Even though that was the case, many knew there was a clear moral argument to be made and I think a majority wanted to be on the right side of that, regardless of who won. The only question really remaining to the public was if we had any business sending our boys to die in their war... (not which side it was we should join)... a question that was answered for us by Pearl Harbor.

Yeah, there's two different sets of weird claims, here.

Wilson, sympathetic to ugly racial supremacy theories?  Eh, maybe.  Wasn't that rare a thing, quite socially acceptable at the time as long as you sounded scholarly about it, and some of the threads that would eventually be woven into the Nazi Aryan pseudo-mythology go way back.  (See also: Prester John legends from 12th century Europe, Thule references all the way back to prechristian Greece...)

A systematic records purge and the lost 13th Amendment?  I'm not sure you could talk Nicolas Cage into that one, the plot's thin even by his standards.  It's not even interesting-weird, it's just tinfoil weird.

PROTIP: If the person making the argument is the type of person you could imagine standing up in court and arguing that their speeding ticket should be dismissed because Franklin Pierce granted sovereignty to their great-great-great-great grandfather's plantation, it's probably safer to a priori disagree.

Hm.  Was apparently born in Italy, lives in Auburn NH with husband, has 4 kids...  Mormon/LDS...  first elected in 2010...

Only education background I can find is "some college," per the Live Free or Die Alliance.  (As for how they'd know, when no one else seems to, your guess is as good as mine.)

Wilson was a classic Southern racist.  Less so than some of his contemporaries -- he at least considered Slavs to be more or less equal to West Europeans, and on that point he very much disagreed with Hitler.

If Britain and France had listened to Wilson, there might never have been a WW2 in Europe; and if his ideas of self-determination, good enough for white people, had also been good enough for others, we might never have been involved in Vietnam.

See, this is why the internet is so great. If I'd have been born 20 years earlier, I might have lived my entire life not knowing someone could be this stupid.
