about

Historically, segments of white Americans have let racist paranoia supersede judicious reasoning throughout our history. The 2016 Presidential election in the United States brought the Know-Nothing's back from the hidden depths of our history books. This book provides a historical account of the Know-Nothing Party in the 1850s through their reemergence in the 21st century with the election of Donald Trump. Analyzing the anti-immigration and anti-Catholic rhetoric of the Know-Nothing movement and tracing that same rhetoric in George Wallace's American Independent Party in the '60s, up into its appearance in the Trump movement, this book provides a guide for understanding the 2016 Republican Party agenda through its inheritance from the Know-Nothing Movement.
1. Introduction.- 2. The Original Know-Nothing's.- 3. Our 13th President now a Know-Nothing!.- 4. Trump '68.- 5. Obama and the Resurrection of the Know Nothing.- 6. The World is Watching-Again!.- 7. Conclusions.
