Andrew Johnson

March 20, 2009
Part 3 of a new series identifying those responsible for the corruption of the constitution and capitalism.

The 17th President of the United States was an established racist. He vetoed Civil Rights bill, allowed for the Jim Crow Laws, and set up american racism that would last a hundred years. He cited decentralization as an argument against his actions (many states were not represented when the Civil Rights Bill passed Congress), but what he said in private makes it clear that this was not so.

Many consider him to be one of the worst presidents of the United States.

His Crimes

This is a country for white men, and by God, as long as I am President, it shall be a government for white men.

The founders believed that “all (of mankind) are created equal”. However, instead of properly reconstructing the Union, he made a mess of things.

Next in the series: Theodore Roosevelt
