Why do so many people hate Wilson so much? He was obviously way too idealistic when it comes to his views towards Europe, but I've seen him listed as the worst president ever and I can't understand why.

Clueless burger fuck who helped destroy Germany and Austria-Hungary.

...seriously?

>WW: Hey guys, we must have a peace where nobody is disadvantage-
>France: FUCK OF AMERIGAN, YOU WOULDNT UNDERSTAND, WE WANT GERMANY SO RUINED IT WILL NEVER BE A THREAT EVER AGAIN
>German butthurt leads to Nazis
Good Job Europe
>>
>>600259

some of the recent hate on him is because he was an unrepentant racist to the extent that it negatively affected some major decisions, like him ignoring Ho Chi Minh's petition for Vietnamese self determination.
>>
>>600288
>HEY GUYS I'M A BURGER RETARD, LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT YOUR COUNTRY AND HOW IT SHOULD LOOK
>NO, IT WON'T LEAD TO ANY MORE WARS, TRUST ME I'M A BURGER EXPERT
>>
>>600312
As if ruining Germany worked for you guys.
>>
>>600317
I was mostly referring to Austria-Hungary.
>>
>>600289
Well he was born in Virginia in 1865 and couldn't overcome his upbringing. In contrast, consider Theodore Roosevelt, first President to invite a back man to the White House. There's more to be said about Wilson, like he was a prick, but that'll do for now.
>>
>>600288
Versailles wasn't anymore unfair than the treaty the Germans imposed on the French in 1871. The French were obviously pushing the hardest for reparations since their most industrialized region had been occupied and destroyed during WWI.
>>
>>600312
Wilson was /int/ incarnation.
>>
>>600355
Well The French and most of Europe actually had no problem With Japan's Racial Equallity proposal
So what the fuck made Anglo/Germanic Countries so obsessed with race?
>>
>>600355
But is it really that bad?
>>
Made senseless plans for redrawing Europes borders after WW1 without consulting the British or French or even understanding what kind of affect on Europe his proposals would have.

Insisted on the establishment of the League of Nations but then refused to make the US a part of it.
>>
>>600379
The white man's burden in the British Empire as an excuse for imperialism and in America it was a combination of not having a unified ethnic heritage and thus using whiteness as synonymous to American and trying to justify the oppression of it's sizable minorities.
>>
>>600527

He didn't exactly refuse, he got shut down by the senate despite his vigorously campaigning for the measure.
>>
>>600527
>refused to be a part of it
Google 'Henry cabot lodge'
>>
>>600518
Was what really that bad?
>>
>>600259
He entered America into WWI, introduced income tax, and violated the 1st amendment to shut down anti-war activists.
>>
>>600626
Nothing wrong with anything you posted
>>
There are multiple reasons for everyone on the political spectrum to hate the guy:

>curtailed civil liberties and freedom during WWI (The Espionage Act is still on the books)
>cracked down on commies, socialists, and the IWW and helped instigate the first Red Scare (and the race riots of the 1919 Red Summer)
>was a racist
>enacted the Federal Reserve and passed the amendment that established the income tax
>nationalized railroads and other major industries during WWI, massively expanded the power of the federal government
>fundamentally transformed American foreign policy from one that was isolationist and wary of foreign entanglements into one that was interventionist and willing to enter foreign conflicts; established the rhetoric of the need to "spread democracy" and claimed the US has a "moral obligation" to intervene around the world
>favored globalism and reduction of sovereignty

There's lots for people to hate, OP.
>>
>>600629
According to you, sure. But you're not the only person in the world. OP asked why so many people hate Wilson, and I gave him the reasons why. Nobody asked for your opinion.
>>
>>600626
>violated the 1st amendment

Good. The 1st amendment is degeneracy.

In fact all the amendments are degeneracy.
>>
>>600649
Other than the stupid neoconservative thing, that's just being a politician
>>
>>600703

It'd be awfully inconvenient for your worldview if you learned he was a progressive.
>>
>>600723
Why? Progressive has meant a huge spectrum of things over the course of the word in a political sense. In Wilson's day, his views were not a contradiction of progressivism.
>>
>>600723
I fail to see the relevance outside of a 'le ebin progressive librulz xdddd' meme. I already knew that
>>
>>600754
*ebil
>>
>>600259
as a member of his family, i hate him for his economic policies. the federal reserve bank and demanding all the countries gold, then switching from a gold standard to a credit standard.
>>
>>600688
nice bait you got there, friend.
>>
>>600527
Would the League of Nations have really done anything even with the US as part of it? Look at how ineffective and toothless the UN is.
