Princeton University and President Wilson


For John, BLUFYour friends who are Democrat have some apologizing to do.  Nothing to see here; just move along.



From Mr Michael van der Galien, and Pajamas Media, yesterday, we have "'Black Lives Matter' Gets One Right:  Woodrow Wilson Was a Terrible Racist"
The Black Lives Matter movement has frequently been criticized by conservatives, and for good reason.  The organization is undeniably radical and practices race-based intimidation.  For instance, slightly less than two weeks ago, activists attacked white students studying in a library at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire.  Their "sin," apparently, was their skin -- the white students were born racists and criminals per the eyes of Black Lives Matter.  The innocent students were slammed against the walls, cursed at, and berated for their supposed racial privilege.

Having said that, even a broken [analogue] clock is right twice a day.  In subject matter, if not tactics, Black Lives Matter got it right for once:

Black Lives Matter activists at Princeton University have taken over the president’s office and say they won’t leave until the school acknowledges former U.S. president Woodrow Wilson as a racist and renames all buildings currently honoring him on campus.

Then the article goes on to detail how President Wilson reversed racial progress in the United States and notes that Mr Glenn Beck was correct in...
...claiming that Wilson "was part of the Margaret Sanger, 'let's kill off the inferior race'" movement.
But, here is the twist, and you knew there was a twist:
But to be consistent, the university must also make an effort to explain to the Black Lives Matter students that Wilson's racism was intrinsically linked to his Progressivism. The dangerous political ideology believes all individuals are servants to the state; I don't expect that correcting this side of the Wilson story will be prioritized over there anytime soon.
