would that be left revisionist history? Johnson was impeached for resisting the implementation of the reconstruction policies.

Johnson had earned the ire of Congress for his staunch resistance to implementing its Civil War reconstruction policies.
No, President Andrew Johnson drew the ire of radical republicans for his more moderate , non-interventionist local, state-centric approach to Reconstruction --"Americans had long been suspicious of the federal government playing too large a role in the affairs of state. But the Radicals felt that extraordinary times called for direct intervention in state affairs and laws designed to protect the emancipated blacks. At the heart of their beliefs was the notion that blacks must be given a chance to compete in a free-labor economy...."

"President Johnson stood in opposition. He vetoed the Freedmen's Bureau Bill, claiming that it would bloat the size of government."

President Andrew Johnson's decentralized approach to implementing Reconstruction was very close and similar to the modern-day republicans like Nixon , Reagan, Paul Ryan and libertarians like Ron Paul's states rights argument.

<quoted text>So Bill Ayers lied himself ...in his own memoirs??? In his 2001 memoir Fugitive Days, Ayers recounts his life as a Sixties radical and boasts that he “participated in the bombings of New York City Police Headquarters in 1970, of the Capitol building in 1971, and the Pentagon in 1972.” Of the day he bombed the Pentagon, Ayers writes,“Everything was absolutely ideal.... The sky was blue. The birds were singing. And the bastards were finally going to get what was coming to them.” He further recalls his fascination with the fact that "a good bomb" could render even "big buildings and wide streets ... fragile and destructible," leaving behind a "majestic scene" of utter destruction.
All told, Ayers and the Weather Underground were responsible for 30 bombings aimed at destroying the defense and security infrastructures of the U.S. "I don't regret setting bombs," said Ayers in 2001, "I feel we didn't do enough." Contemplating whether or not he might again use bombs against the U.S. sometime in the future, he wrote:“I can’t imagine entirely dismissing the possibility.”
In 1970, Ayers’ then-girlfriend Diana Oughton, along with Weatherman members Terry Robbins and Ted Gold, were killed when a bomb they were constructing exploded unexpectedly. That bomb had been intended for detonation at a dance that was to be attended by hundreds of Army soldiers at Fort Dix, New Jersey. Ayers himself attested that the bomb would have done serious damage,“tearing through windows and walls and, yes, people too.” Notably, Ayers' fingerprints were found at the bomb-making site, along with an assortment of anti-personnel weapons, stabbing implements, C-4 plastic explosive, and dozens of Marxist-Leninist publications.
Whose the dumb f now? Why Real dumb Dave of course!!!!
P.S. Bill Ayers told me face to face that he wrote O'bama's book--he also said that the second O'bama was written by some political hack. Maybe he does lie...what do you think?
Look,I realie you right whiners have declared corporations the same as people but now buildings?

I clearly said Ayers never blew up any one .

Ayers was not in on the bomb that exploded killing those Weathermen members. He was not into hurting people.

The Weathermen were a loose knit group with many factions & many group leaders.

So who is the dumbf*ck now. It is you because buildings are not people.

First paragraph of your article

"The Radical Republicans believed blacks were entitled to the same political rights and opportunities as whites. They also believed that the Confederate leaders should be punished for their roles in the Civil War."

Wow, that is radical. Who wrote this article?

"President Johnson stood in opposition. He ...vetoed the Civil Rights Bill rejecting that blacks have the "same rights of property and person" as whites. Moderate Republicans were appalled at Johnson's racism. They joined with the Radicals to overturn Johnson's Civil Rights Act veto. "

No matter if the article calls them Radical the bottom line is the bill they supported is what is accepted law .

No matter how you spin it, Johnson was a racist as stated by the article.

Johnson was impeached for failure to enact laws Congress passed

Today’s GOP vs. Tomorrow’s GOP on Immigration

We are about to watch something unfold that is really fascinating and very rare in American politics. One of our two major parties—I’ll let you guess which one!—is on the cusp of having to weigh what is good for its congressional wing in the short term versus what is good for its aspirations to reclaim the presidency over the long term. I’m not sure this has any precedent, at least in the modern history of the republic: a party that, electorally, demographically, and culturally, has so insulated and isolated itself from the rest of the nation that what’s good for its legislators is bad for the party’s future—not to mention the rest of the country.
