An actual coup in america: Democrats in 1944

BURT COHEN · AUGUST 3, 2017

Quote:In the long held American tradition of opposition to colonialism and a government serving the common good, FDR's vice president Henry A Wallace was an outstanding visionary. Then a corrupt political machine performed a bloodless coup at the 1944 Democratic convention. Just as his name was to be placed in nomination (he easily had the votes to win) the gavel was brought down and the convention instantly adjourned despite a huge outcry from the floor. Had Wallace remained as VP, he would have become president instead of Truman. American University History Professor Peter Kuznick explains the incredibly significance of this act to the next seventy years of American history. There would have been no atomic bombs dropped and no Vietnam War, had Wallace's name simply been placed in nomination. The difference was about nine seconds. Listen in and learn.

Yes, a VERY important part of the USA's hidden political history! So much would have been different [and better]. Sadly, however, I fear had he been nominated and elected he may well have been assassinated - but perhaps in the few years before that happened some good could have been done. It is all part of a pattern that anyone with eyes and an independent mind can see - independent political thinkers who really care about the average person and/or doing the most good / the least harm are systematically not nominated, made unelectable or assassinated one way or another. More so those who have socialist leanings. The USA does what is RIGHT and this has remained so from 1776 to today. Progressive thinking/action is really not allowed by those few who feel they 'own' and 'run' the USA. Wallace was really excellent and is today almost unknown. There are several very good books on him and his political views.
