Eleanor Roosevelt



 
Oct 21, 2013 video archive from C-SPAN 2 hours, 1 minute

Don't miss this historical information and video clips of this courageous woman.


First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt

American HISTORY you may not know about.

Eleanor Roosevelt was both the most loved by the people and the most hated First Lady by the elites in American History because of her courageous activities.

J. Edgar Hoover led an effort to have Eleanor Roosevelt declared a negro, be stripped of her citizenship and deported to Liberia!

Eleanor Roosevelt has the largest FBI file of any First Lady.

The Republican Campaign button for the 1936 election had, "We don't like Eleanor either." on it. IOW, every bigot out there hated her guts. She was often depicted with "coal dust" on her face in satirical newspaper cartoons. No, it wasn't because she was friendly with coal miners and supported unions for them... 

The Daughters of the American Revolution DID NOT LIKE HER AT ALL. Why? Because she supported unions and defended the civil rights of African Americans. She made these High society ladies uncomfortable with all this "boat rocking". LOL!

And that's WHY J. Edgar Hoover,  one of the greatest fascist Racist Police State Pigs in American History, targeted her. Even with all her high society white family credentials, the INSTANT she moved to support a democratic USA with equal rights for all, the propaganda machine of dedicated fascist racist assholes declared her a N_____R Lover.

When that didn't work, they decided to go all out and to rebrand her genetics in order to DESTROY her credibility.

The Klu Klux Klan placed the highest price on her head (reward for assassinating her) that that pack of cowardly murdering racists had ever placed on anyone on its list of "Enemies of Amerika".

Despite many assasination threats and attempts (she carried a gun), she refused secret service protection until her death in 1962. 

Eleanor Roosevelt's Wartime Prayer
Dear Lord,
Lest I continue
My complacent way,
Help me to remember that somewhere,
Somehow out there
A man died for me today.

As long as there be war,
I then must
Ask and answer
Am I worth dying for?


When Eleanor informs Truman of her husband's death:
ER: Harry, He's dead.
HT: Oh Mrs. Roosevelt, I'm so sorry. Is there anything I can do for you?
ER: That's the wrong question because you are the one in trouble now.


Historians discuss all the above and much more including the 1918 Lucy Mercer affair with FDR that caused Eleanor to, henceforth, have her own bedroom, how FDR's mother told him that if he divorced Eleanor to marry Lucy, she would cut him off from the family money and how, despite all this, in 1921 when FDR got polio, Eleanor was the one who willingly gave him a daily enema, inserted a glass tube in his **** to extract urine (because of his paralysis) and gave him the support in the political arena to win the presidency over a decade later. He could not have done it without her.

The elitist, greedy, anti-democratic, racist, predatory capitalists from EVERY political party have been out to undo everything SHE and FDR accomplished for human decency ever since.
