LBJ Made His First Speech as a SenatorATTACKING an anti-Lynching Bill.
“That #@&^%$#@*#! Damned Nigger preacher.”
President Lyndon Baines Johnson’s Real Opinion of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Hillary and Bill have excoriated Senator Obama for telling a factual statement about
President Reagan; but at the same time Hillary claims Dr. Martin Luther King would
have been ineffective without President Lyndon Baines Johnson (LBJ).
The message she sends is that “Hillary is just like LBJ” and all us poor helpless,
ineffective “dreamers” need Hillary to lead us to the Promised Land.
Susan B. Anthony-II tells a lot about LBJ, “The man with the face of ‘a chain-gang
boss.’” in the appendices to the final volume in her series: Hillary® Unveiled.
Here are just a few facts revealed by noted authors who knew LBJ:
“I’ll have them niggers voting Democrat for the next two hundred years.”

LBJ called the Civil Rights Act “that Nigger Bill.”
Harry McPherson remembered, “And about five minutes later I heard (LBJ) say to some
southerner . . . , ‘I’m going to have to bring up the nigger bill again.’ “

LONE STAR RISING Lyndon Johnson and His Times,
1908-1960. By Robert Dallek
When Dr. King led protests against LBJ’s Vietnam War, President Johnson cursed Dr.
King as “that Nigger preacher.”
“Lyndon Johnson was a Monster! He was one of the few politicians with whom I found
it uncomfortable to be in the same room. Johnson exuded a brutal lust for power which
I found most disagreeable. When he said, ‘I never trust a man unless I have his pecker
in my pocket,’ he really meant it. He boasted about acting on the principle, ‘Give
me a man’s balls, and his heart and mind will follow.’ I could never forgive him
for the way he destroyed Hubert Humphrey’s personality while Hubert was Vice-President,
thus costing the United States the best President it never had.”

Healey was the British Secretary of Defense, and Robert McNamara’s counterpart.

Does LBJ remind you of anyone?
LBJ was obsessed with gaining power regardless of the cost. As a young politician
and congressman he betrayed every principle he had and every person he met in order
to gratify his own insatiable ambition.
His career was built on cynicism, ruthlessness, and greed, “in which any maneuver
is justified by the end of victory . . . a morality that is amorality”: in short,
an American Richard III.
Johnson was ruthless, greedy, and ambitious. He bullied and humiliated his staff.
He was too lazy to go to the bathroom so he used a chamber pot in his busy office.
Johnson would force his staffers and secretaries to sit and listen “while he did
his daily stool.”
He treated his wife Lady Bird vilely. He openly carried on affairs with other women,
including Nixon’s former nemesis, Helen Gahagan Douglas. He procured envelopes stuffed
with cash from his “ultraconservative” Texas oil patrons. He destroyed a liberal
nominee for the Federal Power Commission, Leland Olds, with a bit of ruthless red-baiting
that would have made Joe McCarthy wince.
He courted and then betrayed his mentor, the powerful Richard Russell of Georgia,
who enabled him to become minority and then majority leader of the Senate, just as
he betrayed his earlier mentor in the House, Sam Rayburn.
Johnson openly used racial epithetslike “nigger” and “boy.” He liked to play a practical
“joke” on Black gas-station attendants by putting a RATTLESNAKE in his car’s trunkand then asking his Black victims to check the back.
