“More whites were brought as slaves to North Africa than blacks brought as slaves to the United States or to the 13 colonies from which it was formed. White slaves were still being bought and sold in the Ottoman Empire, decades after blacks were freed in the United States.”Dr Thomas Sowell, Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University
In the current political climate, it is crystal clear that dedication, courage and loyalty to the country is frowned upon and cursed at by the radical, orthodox, extremists of socialist liberal leftist establishment. Any display of heroism and courage by members of the military and law enforcement is usually ignored or mocked by the hypocritical, elitist, self centered, immoral trash from the entertainment industry and the bootlicking dregs of the cosmopolitan biased, cultural supremacist, corporate mainstream media. And don’t forget how the Democrats feel about the police, deserved or not.
The accusations of “systemic racism” are absolutely correct. Throughout the history of our lively little planet, people of every ethnic group was enslaved at some point. Unfortunately, slavery is a part of the American tapestry, as it is in other countries throughout time. As a matter of fact, modern slavery still exists and is a multibillion dollar industry with just the forced labor aspect generating approximately $150B USD each year. In 2018, The Global Survey Index estimated that roughly 40.3 million people are currently caught in modern day slavery, with 71% of those being female, and 25% being children.
The aforementioned MSM, the idiots from Hollywood and the oppressive, socialist, liberal left members of the Democratic Party, are actually praising and supporting the acts of destruction, defiance, mob violence and attempts at mob rule that are undertaken by the mask wearing unhinged fascist left, who are mirroring those of Nazi Germany’s Sturmabteilung (SA).The “SA” under Ernst Rohm, was Adolf Hitler’s paramilitary organization that muscled the National Socialist Workers Party rise to power in the early 1930’s. The SA, and eventually The Schutzstaffel (SS), was the major paramilitary arm of the National Socialist Workers Party, the Nazis. The Nazi destroyed statues, destroyed monuments and burned books. They wanted to change history by erasing it. Sound familiar? Who’s funding this mob?
Kyle Shideler, director and senior analyst for homeland security and counterterrorism at the Center for Security Policy,stated, “What is distressing is the level of support that Antifa does get from local and state officials from some of these more radical areas,” Shideler said. “We’ve seen these in Portland, we’re seeing it in Seattle with the mayor and some of the city council members who are essentially supporting this insurrection.” Hostile socialists armed with AR-15’s are in Seattle and it took the cowardly mayor weeks to address this problem.
In the 1930’s, today’s radical activists, engage in protest tactics such as social media activism and are hostile, involving property damage, physical violence and harassment against people whom they identify as racist, or on the far-right and attack law enforcement. Individuals involved in the movement tend to hold anti-government and anti-capitalist views and subscribe to a range of left-wing ideologies such as anarchism, communism, Marxism and socialism. And there are a few groups that fill the above classification, being designated as domestic terrorists. Additionally, “Black lives only matter to white liberals every 4 years ahead of an election,” according to Candace Owens, who added “I’m so sorry to those of you that thought otherwise.”
To that end, with the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Rayshard Brooks by officers employed by their local police departments, whether justified or not, lit the match that ignited organized, possibly preplanned riots, ransacking, looting, assaults, robbery, murder and attacks on law enforcement. Not surprisingly, the mayors and governors of the cities and states that saw the most damage and destruction were those with a Democrat in “charge!” The worst of the lot was Seattle mayor Jenny Durkan (D) and New York City’s resident Mayor putz, Bill DeBlasio. These two weak kneed politicians essentially threw their police departments under the bus, and then backed it up over their departments once again as they capitulated to the anarchists. And in NYC the crime rate is going up due to Mayor Putz’s dismantling of the anti-crime units, who said he won’t allow the city to revert back to its “bad old days” of high crime and excess gun violence, coming after a 72-hour period that saw 28 shootings and 38 injuries.
Back to New York City for one second…don’t forget that the city has experienced similar issues previously: three days of violence in July, 1863. The situation deteriorated so quickly that Mayor George Opdyke (D) requested that the Federal Army respond, because the NYPD was absolutely overwhelmed. The US Navy also responded, shelling the Five Points area of lower Manhattan, which was the hot spot. This is better known as “The 1863 NYC Draft Riots.” By the way, Opdyke refused the city’s Black population to view President Lincoln’s funeral train. Hmmm!
As reported by Lizette, “In an interesting sign of the growing distance between the Black radical racists of Black Lives Matter/the “defund the police” movement, and the Democrat Black political establishment in DC, Congressional Black Caucus Chairwoman Representative Karen Bass (D-CA) expressed her distaste for the term “defund the police.” “I told some friends that’s probably one of the worst slogans ever,” said Bass in a Washington Post live broadcast.” The urban areas will suffer the most.
Yes, as the peaceful protesters were exercising their First Amendment rights, their marches were infiltrated by the aforementioned “activists,” who flipped to outright insanity as dusk approached. There were protests against police brutality, which does happen on a very small scale, but there were protests against the history of slavery in the US. As usual the radical extremists of the socialist liberal left, the unprepossessing dregs of the cosmopolitan biased, cultural supremacist corporate mainstream media and the hypocritical, elitist, misogynistic trash from the entertainment industry got it wrong. The education system gets it wrong to brainwash and influence children in their charge. The weight of their lies will bring out the truth. There’s the convoluted history rewritten to fit the extremist liberal narrative and then there’s the documented truth.
As for the question of slavery, in 1619, approximately 19 Africans arrived in Jamestown, Virginia. They were transported by representatives of the Dutch East India Company, who had seized them from a Spanish slave ship. While under Spanish control, African slaves were usually Baptized under orders from the Crown. During that time period, it was an English custom to acknowledge that Baptized Christians were exempt from slavery. Therefore, the colonies treated these Africans as indentured servants. They joined about 1,000 English indentured servants already in the colony.
Due to the fact that the Africans were considered indentured servants, they were freed after a prescribed period, given the use of land and supplies by their former masters. No mention of this by the unhinged, orthodox, extremist liberal left demanding reparations. For example, Anthony Johnson (1600-1670) arrived in Virginia in 1621 from Angola as an indentured servant. He became free and a property owner, eventually buying and owning slaves himself. The shift of Africans from indentured servitude to slaves did not happen overnight.
In the mid 17th century, there were no laws regarding slavery in Virginia’s history. But, in 1640, a Virginia court sentenced African John Punch to slavery after he attempted to flee his indentured service. The two whites with whom he attempted to flee with were sentenced to an additional year of their indentured servitude, and three years’ service to the colony. This marked the first court sanctioning of legalized slavery in the English colonies and was one of the first legal distinctions made between Europeans and Africans.
What is overlooked is that the first true slaves in the American colonies were children from Ireland in 1619. Additionally, the Irish slave trade truly began when King James II sold 30,000 Irish political prisoners as slaves to the New World. His Proclamation of 1625 required Irish political prisoners be sent overseas and sold to English settlers in the West Indies. By the mid 1600s, the Irish were the main slaves sold to Antigua and Montserrat. At that time, 70% of the total population of Montserrat were Irish slaves. Additional Irish slaves were sent by Oliver Cromwell and King Charles I, totaling over 500K. It seems that Irish slaves were less expensive than African slaves and were treated more harshly at that time.
By 1830, there were approximately 319,599 free blacks in the United States. Approximately 13.7 per cent of the total black population was free. A significant number of these free blacks were the owners of slaves. The 1830 US Census lists 3,775 free Blacks who owned a total of 12,760 slaves.
One of the less well known aspects of the history of slavery is how many and how often non-whites owned and traded slaves in early America. Free black slave holders could be found at one time or another “in each of the thirteen original states and later in every state that countenanced slavery,” historian R. Halliburton Jr. observed. Black people bought and sold other Black people
William Ellison (April 1790 – December 5, 1861) was a very wealthy Black plantation owner and cotton gin manufacturer who lived in South Carolina. According to the 1860 census (in which his surname was listed as “Ellerson”), he owned 63 Black slaves, making him the largest of the 171 Black slaveholders in South Carolina, but far from the largest overall slave holder in the state.
According to historian Tiya Miles, a professor at Michigan, the number of enslaved people held by Cherokees was around 600 at the start of the 19th century and around 1,500 at the time of westward removal in 1838-9. Furthermore, Creeks, Choctaws, and Chickasaws, held around 3,500 slaves, across the three nations, as the 19th century began. Slavery inched its way slowly into the American way of life. I wonder if Elizabeth Warren was aware of this historical tidbit of her “people!”
Moreover, the American History that is being taught in American schools today portrays anyone who lived in the South during the Antebellum Period, which was from the late 18th century until the start of the Civil War in April, 1861, and was marked by the economic growth of the South through an agricultural industry, as a slave owner . The schools are saying that everyone owned at least one slave, which is absolutely incorrect. It was expensive to own one slave, while most of the land owners were poor dirt, barefoot farmers. Less than one-tenth of Southerners owned at least one slave, while half of that 1/10 owned more than one. From a pure economic standpoint, it was expensive to feed, clothe, house and provide medical care for another person.
The last thing to consider is that no one alive today either was a slave or slave owner. How can anyone be held responsible for the sins of the past? What will be the determining factors as to whom gets paid by whom, how much and where does the reparations come from? One person who should be asked is CNN’s own Anderson Cooper. His great, great, great grandfather, tycoon Corneilus Vanderbilt, owned a plantation in Alabama with a plethora of slaves; including former FLOTUS Michelle Obama’s great, great, great grandfather. Obviously, Cooper wasn’t alive as Vanderbilt owned slaves. Is he responsible for what occurred? No! A person from 150 years ago cannot be judged by today’s standards. Their accomplishments cannot be forgotten.
What’s interesting is that any Democrat worth their salt should look up these following Democratic people: Edward Rutledge, Preston Brooks, Roger Taney, Fernando Wood, Nathan Bedford Forrest, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt, Robert Byrd, Lyndon Baines Johnson and George Wallace. It’s easy to make the guess that the aforementioned names are people who were Democrat. What is more interesting is that one person signed the Declaration of Independence. Another was a pro-slavery Democrat from South Carolina who nearly caned to death an abolitionist Republican Senator from Massachusetts. You have a Supreme Court Associate Justice, three Presidents and a Governor from Alabama, who stated, “Segregation now, segregation forever.” The Senator from West Virginia who mentored Bubba and Hillary Clinton, was a Klansman. And speaking of the KKK, the first Wizard is listed here. The Klan, with support of Southern Democrats, suppressed voting rights of Blacks and Republicans in the South through violence and intimidation during the elections of 1868. And included in this group is a former Mayor of NYC who threatened that New York would succeed from the Union if the 13th Amendment was ratified when he was a member of The Congress.
Additionally, during the tenure of President Wilson, the country saw a rebirth of the Klan after Wilson endorsed the 1915 film “Birth of a Nation,” to go along with the enforcement of the Jim Crow laws in Washington, DC. And speaking of the Klan, let’s not forget about the 1924 Democratic Convention at NYC’s Madison Square Garden, called “The Klanbake,” as they marched down Broadway. Let’s not forget FDR’s internment camps, such as Manzanar, for American citizens of Japanese descent during WWII. Furthermore, Pelosi’s father, Thomas Ludwig John D’Alesandro Jr., as the Mayor of Baltimore, dedicated many statues celebrating the Confederacy throughout the city. There is further evidence of the Democrat deceit and skullduggery about being the party for minorities.
Unfortunately, the socialist component of the Democratic Obstructionist National People’s Socialist Party, the MSM and those bitter so-called entertainers are provided with a soapbox, similar to Hitler and his minions. Hitler used the SA to protest the Reichstag, the German Democratic government until 1933, harrass oppositional supporters and encourage violence, while stalking members of the government. The Sturmabteilung, “SA,” literally defined as “Storm Detachment,” as previously cited, functioned as the original paramilitary wing of the Nazi Party. It played a significant role in Hitler’s rise to power in the 1920s and 1930s by bullying and threatening the opposition. Sounds familiar? The left will not forget that their anointed queen lost to the non-establishment underdog.
It seemed that President Donald John Trump became a racist and a xenophobe in the eyes of the liberal leftist establishment when he began his victorious 2016 Presidential campaign and absolutely stomped their chosen one, the carpetbagging, money laundering, treasonous scoundrel, the one and only Hillary. Thank G-d. So, the political establishment swamp, and all of its peripherals , through their silence, is once again missing the big picture through their own devices of the insatiable desire for power, money and influence.
So, before any radical and violent activist group, and you who they are, begin to tear down cities, destroy businesses and homes in their neighborhoods or even the next one over, just take a look at which groups are preventing the “protesters” from “marching” peacefully into their neighborhoods towns and cities. By the way, I guess there’s an advantage to being a hypocrite, leftist, socialist elitist. As a case in point, California’s Beverly Hills and Rodeo Drive was blocked off by the BH police department. While throughout the country, blue collar and local businesses were absolutely torched and trashed in various Democratic cities, such as Seattle, Minneapolis and New York City.
History is a harsh teacher, but payment is worse without listening and applying those lessons. Remember, history can have a tendency to repeat itself. Don’t forget that the Democratic National Socialist People’s Party supports defunding the police, closing jails, open borders, legalizing drugs and destroying the economy with the socialist Green New Deal. Cuba? USSR? Venezuela? This our future with Joe Biden, the puppet! And the radical, orthodox, extremists of the socialist, liberal left are making sure not to waste a good crisis! Then ask yourself the following question: In the last century, has the Democratic Party made life better for residents in the inner city? Make the call!
