Fiftieth Anniversary of Little Rock Nine/Pic of Mike Huckabee at the Fortieth Anniversary


Here is a post about the Fiftieth Anniversary of the Little Rock Nine from an email from Micheal Zak at Grand Old Partisan.

  • On this day in 1957, Republican President Dwight Eisenhower ordered federal troops to Little Rock, Arkansas.
    In September of that year, a few days after passage of the Republican Party's 1957 Civil Rights Act, Orval Faubus, the Democrat Governor of Arkansas, ordered the state National Guard to prevent the court-ordered segregation of a Little Rock public school. At first, Republican President Dwight Eisenhower tried to negotiate with Faubus, but after several fruitless weeks the President lost patience with his Democrat foe. Eisenhower had not been afraid to take on the Nazis, and he certainly was not going to be fazed by Faubus or any other Democrat challenging the Constitution.
    On the advice of his Attorney General, Herbert Brownell, Eisenhower placed the Governor's soldiers under federal government control and ordered the 101st Airborne to Arkansas. Senators Lyndon Johnson and John Kennedy publicly criticized the President for enforcing a federal court order. Many Democrats actually compared the President's act to the Soviet invasion of Hungary the year before.
    Today is the fiftieth anniversary of this great Republican achievement to protect African-Americans from their Democrat oppressors.
    Your contacts may appreciate this link to the story -- http://rs6.net/tn.jsp?t=7sil9ecab.0.exsh8ecab.gszhqvbab.15422&ts=S0280&p=http%3A%2F%2Fgrandoldpartisan.typepad.com%2Fblog%2F2007%2F09%2Fpost -- on Grand Old Partisan, each day celebrating 153 years of Republican heroes and heroics. The article is adapted from Back to Basics for the Republican Party.

Tomorrow the festivities about the event will happen tomorrow in Little Rock Arkansas at the Central High School. Mike Huckabee will be in attendance. Unfortunately he will not be making a speech. I will post about the event. If Mike does any interviews afterward and makes a comment I will let ya know.

I want to share a photo I recieved from the campaign. This is when Mike Huckabee spoke at the Fortieth Anniversary of the Little Rock Nine. I had made a post about Mike Huckabee planning on attending the Fiftieth Anniversary of the Little Rock Nine and so I emailed Chris Maiorana and asked if there was an available picture of Mike speaking at the event. He went above and beyond the call of duty and contacted those in the communications department for me. So I want to give a special thanks to Chris and those in the communications department. A PERFECT example of what happens when everyone "Organize and Win/Vote Republican."



One of the great things about Mike Huckabee is that he believes in Civil Rights, not because of pandering, but because it is part of God given human rights.

Also, check out what the campaign is doing in regards to Vertical Day. I know I came a little late to this. But better late than never. Go to the main site and the blog site. Maneuver around and point and click to your little heart's desire.

There is a link to the Demand Maps. Again, if you are from Michigan, it is very important that you demand Mike Huckabee to come to your town, especially if you are from north of Midland. Oops, sometimes I need to read things more careful. The map is a donation map. All ya need to do is go to the home page at http://www.mikehuckabee.com/ find the map on the front page, click. Donate, anywhere from $5-2300 or if you are a couple up to $4600. When you do this a little banner that says "I Like Mike" will show up above your hometown.

I'm sorry about what happened with Gov. Huckabee's visit to Mackinaw City. Thanks for all of your work. I hope Vertical Day steers some more traffic to the Mike Huckabee campaign and the cause.
