Have a little chuckle with me. I snagged this little meme from some very progressive progressives, a meme I completely agree with. Robert Smalls was a remarkable man, one whose life would definitely make an adventuresome and entertaining movie.
I leave you to do your own research, but the short story is that there was frequent election fraud on the part of the Dems. He was eventually set up and framed, and later pardoned.
He is also well known for having said “I ask that every colored man in the North who has a vote to cast would cast that vote for the regular Republican Party and thus bury the Democratic Party so deep that there will not be seen even a bubble coming from the spot where the burial took place.”
Not even a bubble.
Somebody really should make that movie.
