November 10, 1898 - Two days after the local elections in Wilmington, NC, the democratically elected and biracial government was overthrown by Democratic Party White Supremacists. Over 1,500 white men participated in an attack on the black newspaper, burning down the building. They ran officials and community leaders out of the city, and killed many blacks in widespread attacks. Although originally described as a race riot, it is now perceived as the only coup d'etat in US history.
Look at the faces on the top row. Does that tell you something about "news" and right wing wacko politics of today? 1%ers like the Koch brothers & corporations fund the right wing campaign of hate for one simple reason. When people are filled with hate they are easy to manipulate. The truth is that for some it is not, nor has it ever been about facts, honesty or truth. Logic is wasted on them.
