Will Johnson: Democrats are Erasing Our History
Barry Nussbaum: Welcome to ATP Report. I'm Barry Nussbaum. Our very special guest today, Will Johnson, is back with us. He's a friend of ATP and the founder of UniteAmericaFirst.com. Welcome, Will Johnson.
Will Johnson: Hey, thanks for having me, sir.
Barry Nussbaum: It's a pleasure. So let's kick it off with the greatest movie ever made, according to most people, Gone with the Wind. In present-day dollars, it's the biggest grossing movie of all time. It's one of the most-watched movies in world history. When it was first released, besides setting the all-time record for attendance and gross, it had the record for Academy Award wins and nominations for acting, directing, art history, etc. The first Academy Award to go to a black woman in American history, and now it's been banned for being racist, and it's no longer going to be shown until it has a proper introduction. What are your thoughts on American culture in regards to Gone with the Wind, Will?
Will Johnson: You know, this is completely ridiculous. After all of these years, now all of a sudden, they have an issue with Gone with the Wind. You know, they're not stopping with Gone with the Wind either. They're going after Aunt Jemima pancakes and Uncle Ben. It is never-ending with the left. You give them an inch, and they take two miles now. It used to be one mile. But, you know, I've seen Gone with the Wind. I didn't even look at it as being racist. It actually showed our history for America, you know. It's a great depiction of American history, and we should just leave it at that. Leave it as a movie, something that was, you know, entertaining, something that we could possibly learn from but the left they can't do that. They have to take it and say, "Oh, my goodness." You know why? Because he showed the truth of the Democrats and how they were then and how they are now, and they're trying to rewrite history and change it.
Barry Nussbaum: You know, you make an interesting point and, let's veer off-topic for a second. You just said something that's so historically accurate that I don't understand why it doesn't get talked about it, especially in politics today. The Democrats did not want the slaves freed; the Republicans did. The Democrats were members of the Ku Klux Klan, not the Republicans. Democrats, not the Republicans did the lynchings. Each right that was given, whether it was voting or slavery or Jim Crow, those were all terribly racist policies of the Democrat Party. How is that not being publicized today?
Will Johnson: You know, that's the exact issue, right? The Democrats know that all these Confederate statues that show how the Democrats were and how they are. I'm still saying that's how they are, and they're just trying to cover it up. They're trying to remove the statues, so people don't see them, and out of sight, out of mind. And, you know, the Democrats, they are the ones who wanted to enslave black people. Not a single Republican owned a slave. Not a single one. The Republicans, they originally did the whole reparations for African-Americans at the time when they were freeing slaves in what, 1866. Well, the Democrats reversed it. Actually was 1865 when they first did reparations. In 1866 the Democrats reversed it because of Andrew Johnson. But, you know, we see the same thing over and over coming out of the Democrats, and they believe that the American people are really dumb enough to believe that they were not the party of slavery. That's what they're trying to change. They don't want people to realize it, and they're attacking our history for that very reason so they can change it and convince more people to stick with them.
Barry Nussbaum: Well, let's talk about censorship first in art, and then we'll talk about what's going on with the statues. A family favorite for my children growing up was the show cops. I don't know if you ever saw it. That's been taken off the air because it shows police in a positive light. Right?
Will Johnson: Just doing their jobs.
Barry Nussbaum: Yeah, protecting whites, blacks, yellows, greens, whatever from crime, and they usually solve the crime at the end. Why is that offensive?
Will Johnson: Well, right now, the left, they're trying to remove police officers out of the way so that way they can just create havoc throughout the entire nation. That's why you have them defunding police officers or police departments throughout the country like L.A., Minneapolis, and Seattle. They're doing this because they want total chaos to take place. So that way, they can turn around and pointed at President Trump and say, look, this is because of President Trump. Most people don't know that it starts with the Mayor and then the Governor. If the Mayor can't bring stability to the city, then it goes up to the governor. If the Governor can't do it, it goes to the President. Still, they're passing all of that and going directly to President Trump because they want President Trump to look like he's not doing a good job.
Barry Nussbaum: Let's talk about American history that we touched on a second ago. You're seeing statues every day being attacked. Abraham Lincoln, the guy that freed slaves and emancipated them. George Washington, the founder of the country. Thomas Jefferson, who wrote maybe the most brilliant document ever, the Declaration of Independence, and on and on and on the statues are coming down. In fact, it's so pervasive that statues honoring, for example, black volunteers in the Union army that fought the South to free the slaves those statues have been destroyed.
Will Johnson: Yes.
Barry Nussbaum: What is possibly behind the idea of every statue coming down, whether it's a good guy or a bad guy, or do they just not even know what they're doing?
Will Johnson: Well, in order for them to rewrite history, you have to remove not only the Confederate statues, but you have to remove the statues that represented the end of slavery, for example, Abraham Lincoln. There are a lot of people out there right now that are under the impression that Abraham Lincoln was a Democrat because he freed the slaves, and the Democrats are running with this story. When you tell a lot of people that they are like, what? What? Lincoln was not a Democrat. He was a Republican. But they have this narrative. They have this agenda to rewrite history, and I can't tell you how many people that I've talked to that actually believe that Abraham Lincoln was a Democrat because he freed the slaves. They have this whole thing to deceive people and believe that the Democrat Party was for black people, which was not true at all. The Democrat Party was the party of Jim Crow. They are the party of the KKK. They are the party that was against civil rights. They are the party that didn't even want women to vote, let alone black people. That is who they are, but they're trying to change history. So you have to remove all of the statues. Because if you have a statue up that's of Abraham Lincoln that freed the slaves, and they say, OK, here's the statue where they freed the slaves. But where's the statue of the ones that didn't? And they said they want to put it in a museum but, you know, once they put those Confederate statues in a museum, the very next day, oh the museum is closed due to maintenance. I'm telling you, that's exactly how it's going to play out.
