The Perversity of Justice in America
Charlie on the Turnpike makes this note about Juneteenth, the day slavery officially ended:
Today marks a distinct anniversary that is hardly ever mentioned.
Right Voices: "Today, Americans celebrate Juneteenth when in 1865 slavery finally ended throughout the entire United States. Sadly, few people know that Juneteenth was a high water mark for African- Americans. Soon after that great day, the Democratic Party defeated the Reconstruction policies of the Republican Party, postponing the civil rights movement until the 1950s.
An important fact which most history books ignore is that Abraham Lincoln's 1864 running mate was a Democrat, Andrew Johnson of Tennessee. And so after Lincoln's assassination, it was a Democrat who would be President of the United States for the first four years after the Civil War. That first President Johnson did all in his power to prevent African- Americans from experiencing Lincoln's new birth of freedom."
Reality Hammer follows it up with this:
You never know which way the worm will turn in Washington. In the latest episode of "more equal than others" we have the case of someone who admitted assaulting police officer (but justified it as a response to "racial profiling") yet was not indicted for the crime:
WASHINGTON (AP) - A grand jury declined Friday to indict Rep. Cynthia McKinney in connection with a confrontation in which she admitted hitting a police officer who tried to stop her from entering a House office building.
Democrats feel that Karl Rove is guilty despite not being indicted for a crime...here we have someone who admits committing a crime and is not indicted...so is she guilty in the eyes of Democrats?
