John Legend: Trump Presidency will Lead to Slavery-Era ‘Darkness’


Donald Trump is coming under fire once again from Hollywood's liberal elite. This time, it's' John Legend in the driver's seat.

The Grammy and Oscar-winning musician and “Underground” executive producer has lashed out at the GOP nominee on social media, previously engaging in a Twitter feud with Trump’s son — and today, Legend slammed the presidential hopeful again.

“We are in a moment now where we have a major candidate for office that is being very racist and divisive. I feel the need to call that out all the time because I don’t want us to feel like it’s impossible for our nation to go back to another dark place,” Legend said Tuesday afternoon at Variety’s TV Summit at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills, Calif., where he discussed his WGN America series “Underground,” a period drama about the Underground Railroad.

Unfortunately for Mr. Legend, the “dark period” about which he speaks was brought on by the party he endorses, not the Republicans.

The founders of the Democratic-Republican Party were prominent slave holders, like Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. Its opponent, the Federalist Party, was founded by abolitionists, like Alexander Hamilton. While the main point of contention was Federalism vs anti-Federalism, the parties were strangely divided between abolitionists and anti-abolitionists. The Democratic-Republican Party split in 1832, due to the rivalry of John Quincy Adams (abolitionist) and Henry Clay (emancipator) against Andrew Jackson (slavery advocate). Andrew Jackson, Martin Van Buren (anti-abolitionist), James K. Polk (slavery compromiser), and Stephen A. Douglas (slavery fence-sitter) founded the current Democratic Party. The abolitionists wandered in the wilderness for a while, mixing with Whigs, and finally coalescing into the Republican Party in 1854, with abolition as its singular purpose.

Despite these facts. Hollywood's leftist army continues to demonize Republicans as the party of hate. They keep talking, but is anyone actually listening to these empty-headed entertainers? Hopefully not.
