The phrase was (allegedly) coined by General Philip Sheridan. Do you just post stuff without any research? Do you just take talking points and not dig a little deeper before you post and look like a moron? This is why the left wants to burn books....they have shills like you who believe the talking points and want to re-write history.
In a word, yes

Since this is the political football thread I’ll post this here



The NFL in all its infinite wisdom will stencil social justice statements in each teams end zones all season long

And play the BLM national anthem “it takes all of us” before every game on week one

It's "Harding" you uninformed dolt.


4) Was President Harding a member of the Ku Klux Klan? Although he belonged to many fraternal organizations, he never was a Klansman. In 1922, the Klan spread the story that the president was a Klansman, and that allegation was published in newspapers across the country. The president adamantly denied the story. The Klan’s smear campaign seemingly was retribution for an October 1921 speech Harding gave in Birmingham, calling for an end to inequality between the races in regard to pslitical, economic and educational opportunities. The Klan also found that telling people the president was a Klansman was helpful in recruiting new members. The Klan was at the height of its popularity and membership in the early 1920s, with 4 million members and chapters in all 48 states.

And Hoover was the President during the Great Depression which had more to do with him losing the election than anything.


"Still, Hoover received between two-thirds and three-quarters of the black vote in northern urban wards."

As late as the mid-1930s, African American Republican John R. Lynch, who had represented Mississippi in the House during and after Reconstruction, summed up the sentiments of older black voters and upper middle-class professionals: “The colored voters cannot help but feel that in voting the Democratic ticket in national elections they will be voting to give their indorsement [sic] and their approval to every wrong of which they are victims, every right of which they are deprived, and every injustice of which they suffer.”
try a better source

it's probable Harding was at the WH KKK event described by a Grand Wizard ... it was a rather infamous event
Klan events in DC were rather common in the 1920s

in Harding's favor - he wasn't near as bad a racist as Wilson, the dem who proceeded him, arguably the most racist post civil war president ... Warren didn't have much trouble getting the black vote. And didn't have any trouble selling out black interests like numbers banking and voting rights if he turned a buck. Harding was dumb and crooked as much as racist - his talk and no action allowed the disenfranchisement of millions

Hoover was nut case. His "southern strategy" is a big part of what is wrong with the GOP to this day


he deported a million plus Mexicans (Latinos really, anyone with a Hispanic name) and a large number of east europeans, mostly Jews, with little or no due process. His refusal to apply disaster relief equally cost too many lives in the after math of the Great Flood, and too many promises broken.


Harding and Hoover were worse than guilty of selling out the black vote

Never in a million years did I think Warren G. Harding would be a topic of conversation at a football forum. Next week: Adlai Stevenson and the flex defense.
I bet you never imagined we'd have such historians posting about so much inaccurate shit from 100 years ago.

Besides, you've been banned elsewhere for far less.......

I prefer "asked to leave."
I was around then buddy and it was pretty unceremonious. And I recall you had a ton of posts and were one of the more active posters. But anyone could see you and Woody's Girl was never going to work out. Whatever makes you feel better....

start with The Fiery Cross, it's rather well documented
BTW, there are many historical records of Klan events in the DC in the 1920s

Harding's immigration policies were as racist as it gets - as were many judges he appointed
moreover, Harding, Coolidge, and Hoover never bothered to enforce civil rights

dude Wilson, Harding, Coolidge, and Hoover advocated eugenics, are you denying their complicity in Jim Crow?

are you saying the actions of these men didn't cost the GOP the black vote?

the last 24 hours of the news cycle is proof positive it's a bad idea to vote for a draft dodging trick
3 of our last 4 presidents dodged the draft to avoid Vietnam service and the 4th was too young to be drafted. Bill Clinton used a student deferment then went to England to protest the war. George Bush enlisted in the Air National Guard to avoid going to Vietnam. Trump had a medical deferment which was pretty easy to get. All you needed was a note from your doctor covering a whole slew of silly ailments including acne. On top of that, Al Gore the VP to draft dodger Bill Clinton, had his dad who was a senator keep him away from combat while he served. And then, Jimmy Carter pardoned all draft dodgers anyway. Unless you lived through that time then you really do not understand the mood of the country during the Vietnam war. But it is too bad Obama was too young to be drafted because it would have been interesting to see if he would have gone or found a way out as well.

I hate what has happened to the NFL. The clown at the top, Roger Goodell, should go down in NFL history as the worst commissioner they ever had. But they are paying him close to $50 million a year so he will be in the HoF after he is retired from his job.

but - none of them were flagrant tricks, the man is unfit

I did live through it

BTW, what about ism doesn't excuse this draft dodging trick, nor his supporters
