Dan Riehl: Sarah Palin Does It Again With Civil War Reference

By Gary P Jackson

Dan Riehl observes that once again Sarah Palin is ahead of the curve by bringing up the Civil War when talking about Obama’s racist nature and the way he seeks to use race [and class] to divide us as a nation. Referencing her interview with Sean Hannity:

This is classic Sarah Palin. I’d wager people would be surprised to learn that progressive Obama czarist Cass Suntein agrees with her on this growing flap because Palin had the audacity to invoke the Civil War in reference to Derrick Bell. I reached the same conclusion myself studying Bell. Cass Sunstein in The New Yorker, May 3 2004.

The American Civil War (1861–1865) policy yielded the cessation of legal slavery in the U.S., however not the intent of a different class of citizen. Before the end of the war, the Morrill Land-Grant Colleges Act (Morrill Act of 1862) was passed to provide for federal funding of higher education by each state with the details left to the state legislatures.

Following the war, the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution guaranteed equal protection under the law to all citizens, and Congress established the Freedmen’s Bureau to assist the integration of former slaves into Southern society. After the end of Reconstruction in 1877, former slave-holding states enacted various laws to undermine the equal treatment of African Americans, although the 14th Amendment as well as federal Civil Rights laws enacted during reconstruction were meant to guarantee it. However Southern states contended that the requirement of equality could be met in a manner that kept the races separate.

Dan does a good job of showing where Sarah got it right, and how her contemporaries then got it all wrong.

One more instance of Sarah Palin being far ahead of the curve on the issues, and being able to articulate them in a manner that sticks with you.

    Re: The picture of Obama at the black board. During the campaign he, Obama, insisted that he did not know Ayers.

      That’s actually photoshopped the original Obama is giving a lecture to ACORN rent-a-thugs.

      Obama knew Ayers well. Not only did Obama start his political career in Ayers’ living room, before that Obama worked at two of Ayers’ non-profit “education” foundations. Obama was chairman of both. We all know Ayers wrote Obama’s first book, but some may not know that Obama wrote a blurb for one of Ayers’ books on education. The two were very close.

        I wish that the association with Ayers, would come out and be exposed in truth.
        But, first, it has to be explained, the history of Ayers. When Ayers was active, I didn’t give it any consideration. I was busy with school, family, and he, Ayers laid his groundwork, and then, infiltrated the mainstream. And I only know that from reading an article during the Democratic Presidential Primary. (Which contained very little information.) So how would the voters today understand the connection?

        Ayers is as evil as it gets. He’s a vile communist who should have been put in prison forever. He railed on rich people and told children they should kill their parents. Ironically it was Ayers’ rich daddy that hired the lawyer who got him off!

        Here’s something that should scare you. This is who Ayers, Obama and the rest of the democrat party truly are:

        Thank you. As a student at NYU post WWII, in a Social Studies class, one student arrived on May day with a commuist armband. He was seated next to me, and as usual, he was a verbal disruption to the class.
        So, I thought, I’m paying for this class, I’m going to speak out. I said, out loud to the prof., I objected to his disturbance. The prof said, with a smile, let him be. I turned to him and told him to shut up. HE SHUT UP.
        THE SECOND TIME WAS YEARS LATER AT A LECTURE BY BILL BUCKLEY, AT HUNTER COLLEGE, AND 2 OF THEM SAT BEHIND ME. THEY KEPT YELLING OUT. I SAID SHUT UP. OVER ONE HUNDRED PEOPLE THERE AND THEY WERE ALL AFRAID TO SAY ANYTHING.
        I found out the next day when I came home from teaching, the man sitting next to them, taught with my sister, and he told her what I did.
        He thought I had guts but where were his guts?
