This Day in History: 1870-02-03

1870: The pretended “Fifteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution” is illegally ratified while the former Confederate states are under occupation regimes with almost all their citizens forcibly disenfranchised. Unleashing massive political corruption, and pushed by the Republican party to secure more votes for its new constituency — newly freed and appallingly ignorant Blacks — it empowers the Washington regime to “legally” abolish literacy tests, civics tests, poll taxes, and racial requirements for voting in any state. No law and no act of the Washington regime, nor the regime itself, could conceivably be regarded as legitimate after this date.
