From her first ever public speaking engagement in 2010 to her wildly popular speech at CPAC this weekend her message has centered around what she calls the true history of racism in the United States and it isn’t the version we were taught in school or see in the regular media.
“What if I told you that white supremacy is real in America, and it came with the very first gun law? That black people had no right to protect themselves from the KKK?” Johnson said to applause and appreciative “amens” from the audience.
“What if I told you that minimum wage [laws] was to protect white jobs from black workers, through unionization? That actually happened in this country. What if I told you that price controls put out by FDR actually bankrupted black farms? People who worked for themselves their entire lives were now forced to go to government and beg for welfare?
