Wilson’s Legacy

WilsonWilson1919Black activists are asserting that Woodrow Wilson, the twenty-eighth president of the United States, was a racist and therefore his name should be removed from Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.

If in a democracy the political leaders are accountable to the people then the American people should have seen to it that Wilson and his Zionist backers were jailed for taking the U.S. into World War I—a war, that could have ended in 1916 but for U.S. involvement, that is seen by honest historians as the root cause of the Depression, Hitler, WWII, the Holocaust, and today’s chaos in the Middle East.

Commenting on Wilson’s role in the Great War’s aftermath, Felix Frankfurter wrote in Felix Frankfurter Reminisces (1960) that various people had pointed out to Wilson “how harsh and severe were the consequences to the German people of some of the terms (of the Versailles Treaty), particularly economic, Wilson said, ‘We mean them to be harsh because we want to etch forever on the minds of the German people that the people are responsible for the conduct of its rulers.'”
