9781331846840: The Watsonian (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Watsonian

When one thinks of Andrew Jackson one thinks of a combatant, a man who would lose his last drop of blood upholding a conviction. Can you picture Jackson straddling a fence on any public question? Can you imagine Old Hickory sidestepping an issue or pleading for harmony when great principles were at stake? No! A thousand times No.

But that is just what we find our Democratic leaders doing at a dinner, called a Jackson Day - Dinner Why? No one knows. Much was said of Jackson and Jefferson and their principles in the ball room of the Mayflower Hotel on the night of January 12th. Yet when we read the full proceedings of that dinner we fail to find a single action which would back up the great principles handed down to us by the founders of the Democratic Party.

Harmony! was the cry, and when a speaker threatened to voice a conviction the toastmaster would rap for order.

Don't assail the Trusts and Money Interests as we must have their large contributions in the approaching campaign.

Don't assail the Catholic Church for meddling in American politics because we will lose the Priest Led Vote of America.

Don't assail the nullifiers of the 18th amendment because we must have the backing of the liquor ring.

No!! You must not even discuss these issues because they might cause friction and we Must Have Harmony.

Listen to these words from a would-be Jackson: In choosing a color bearer for 1928 do not measure his fitness by his relation to the prohibition law nor his religious affiliation.

The American people are not going to stand for any such rot as this. The Democratic Party can not dodge these issues in their platform and entertain the least hope of victory. These questions are burning the ears of every loyal American and they will not accept the word Harmony for an answer.
