DNC: HONOR PRESIDENT LYNDON BAINES JOHNSON, CIVIL RIGHTS ICON AT THE 2016 DNC CONVENTION
July 25, 2016 Contact: Ludwig at 301-768-1076 CITIZENS PICKET WHITE HOUSE URGING OBAMA AND DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE TO STOP IGNORING THE CONTRIBUTIONS OF PRESIDENT LYNDON BAINES JOHNSON (There would have been no Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton without the civil rights vision of President Lyndon Baines Johnson. Time for the DNC to publicly recognize his outstanding accomplishments. He has not been recognized since the 1968 Convention. We want this convention to give the daughters of this late President a prime time slot before the historic nomination of Hillary Clinton transpires. Please announce on your upcoming news shows and websites. People of all races colors and creeds are urged to join in our crusade to honor President Lyndon Baines Johnson) On the day that President Obama is supposed to speak at the Democratic Convention, some concerned citizens and civil rights activists will picket the White House urging President Obama to mention the contributions of the late President Lyndon Baines Johnson to preserving civil rights for minorities. Our sources tell us that the Democratic Committee has not honored this civil rights icon since 1968. This historic protest takes place in the heat on the north side of the White House on this Wednesday, July 27, from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM. We should never forget that the civil rights bills of 1965 and affirmative action programs of 1966 enabled President Obama to reach this high pinnacle of success. These laws represent the main reason that Hillary Clinton has become the first female nominated for President from a major political party in America. It is their hope that even at this late date that Hillary will use her clout to arrange for the two living daughters of President Johnson to give a brief tribute to their beloved father who changed the landscape of civil rights in America. At the least, there should be a moment of silence before Hillary Clinton is introduced on Thursday night. She should definitely mention this great trailblazer in her speech. With the fair voting rights laws of the Johnson Great Society being attacked constantly by Republicans, there has never been a more perfect time to uplift the name of President Lyndon Baines Johnson, a true servant of God who believed in the Golden Rule that is the fundamental teaching of Christianity the faith that so many racist people in America espouse. We expect about 15 people from the Pray at the Pump Movement (PAPM) and Black ministers from the Washington metropolitan area to be present at the vigil/protest. Some of the signs at the LBJ event will read: DNC: Don’t Forget the Contribution of Lyndon Baines Johnson to Civil Rights; Let LBJ’s daughters speak to the 2016 Convention ; There Would be no President Obama or Hillary Clinton Without President LBJ; Bernie Sanders Loves LBJ; or LBJ, A TRUE CIVIL RIGHTS ICON. The group will form prayer groups with people and visitors from around the world who are visiting the White House grounds or taking their lunch breaks. Artists from the Pray at the Pump Movement will perform songs of the civil rights era. Rocky Twyman, the founder of the Pray at the Pump Movement (PAPM) gives praises to God for helping him to arrange for Lynda Johnson Robb, the eldest daughter of President Johnson to speak at the 50th celebration of his high school class at Pine Forge Academy in Pennsylvania, one of four predominantly black boarding high school that still exists in the country. His 1966 class directly benefited from the civil rights programs of the Great Society. He like other blacks believe that President Johnson has not received enough credit from the minority communities or the Democratic Party for his accomplishments. He hopes that this Pennsylvania event will set the record straight. Twyman, who founded the Oprah Winfrey for Nobel Peace Prize Movement in 2005 was very disappointed that Ms. Winfrey portrayed this civil rights icon as a racist in the movie Selma. In Twyman’s opinion, she would not have achieved her financial success if it had not been for the far reaching civil rights legislation of President Johnson. Twyman is planning a special community fundraiser for the foundation in Montgomery County on August 27, President Johnson’s birthday. The event will conclude with the singing of We Shall Overcome, the famous civil rights hymn of the sixties that is still performed in black churches to this day on Martin Luther King’s birthday. . There will be a special Walking Book of Love for the Johnson family that people can sign. The card will be sent to the great LBJ Library in Austin, Texas. Supporters of this project are also urged to sign the online petition urging the National Democratic Committee to publicly recognize the civil rights accomplishment of President Lyndon Baines Johnson, A TRUE CIVIL RIGHTS ICON.
