One thing that has never sat well with me nor made any sense as I was growing up was regarding the relationship between the Democrat Party and the black-American Community. How can it be that the political party that is said to have freed Blacks in America from bondage and slavery, and protected it from segregationist policies, the Republican Party, to now be the Party that is hated and denounced by the black-American community today?
On Memorial Day 2016, on a day that was purposely set aside to honor the brave men and women, sons and daughters, husbands and wives, who have given the ultimate sacrifice for their fellow soldiers and country, the heads of the “History Channel” have decided to run a remake of Roots – an American slave movie. Roots originally aired in 1977, and was based on the family of Alex Haley, the author.
At a time of the greatest increase of racial division in our nation since the 1960’s, the powers at the History Channel unleashes a movie on of one of the darkest divisive racial periods in American history? They could not do a remake on the Amistad, Glory, or the Tuskegee Airmen? They couldn’t do a movie on Fredrick Douglas, the Buffalo Soldiers, General Hannibal, Madame C.J Walker, or any story about how Black and White Americans joined to combat injustice, slavery, or to ensure freedom in America? Really? But to do a story on some of these topics or heroes would be counter to the narrative that Blacks in America have always been slaves and that Whites owe them eternally for what some of their ancestors did to some blacks generations ago and that is the “White Man” that is keeping me down”. Why not do an epic mini-series on the Trail of Tears-the forced removal of the so-called Indian from their lands by the U.S government, the strife between the Irish and the Italians at the turn of the century, or the forced incarceration of the Asian-Americans during World War II? It does not fit their narrative to further divide the two dominate ethnic groups in America – the Blacks and Whites.
The whole world knows by just glancing at the history of America and it’s political and social structure that the matter of slavery and race, regarding Blacks and Whites, is a scab on the nation. And if they wanted to divide us, distract us, and have us fighting amongst ourselves, the easiest way to do so is to peel back the scab and pour vinegar in it.
Over the past 7 plus years, upon the election of the United States’ first actual African-American, Mr. Barack Obama, the race-baiters and those seeking to divide us and separate us have left no opportunity to dump salt on the unhealed wound of America unutilized. Every divisive dart to keep Blacks dis-trusting whites, feeling entitled to the wealth of others, and sub-consciously imprinted with the belief they we destined to be 2nd class citizens who are subsequently unable to survive independent the hand of the government, has struck its mark with destructive accuracy.
What I find to be a perverted twist of the insanity of this whole situation is that the Puppet Master, the real director of the chaos and disturbance who seeks to destroy America, has the Blacks in America seeking relief for the past suffering, i.e., White people putting them in slavery, from a government mostly composed of White people, with its political flag-barer a political Party, the Democratic Party, who led the fight FOR slavery up until the official abolishment, with no help from them, who created the Klu Klux Klan, and who’s policies ( along with Liberal Progressives) have further shackled the black American community, both socially and economically, to hardship and crippling governmental dependence, in a nation that still provides the black American community with an estimated $1 TRILLION in annual wealth. Just imagine if there were not shackles about the ankles and minds of the black-American? As reported by MartinRicard.com in 2013, there were 35,000 Black millionaires in America, nearly 2 million black-Americans owned their own business, and 28 banks were owned by black Americans. Why aren’t these such stories more vociferously reported, humm? Instead, who famed journalist Tony Brown calls, the plantation warriors leave no quarter in attempting to keep as many Blacks mentally chained to the plantation via constant reminders of a period, that at the end of the day, relative to the many centuries and centuries of the existence of Blacks on the planet, as well as on this continent, equates to a minute in time.
The most interestingly over-looked component in stories about the slave trade is the complicitness of Blacks in placing Blacks into bondage and on plantations in America, as well as all over the world. Though the Media wishes to keep the focus on the dirty hands of some Whites, it seeks to cleanse the hands of the Black accomplices regarding the black-American plight. If history is to be reported, should it best be reported honestly? Black-Americans making a profit on the suffering and the economic displacement of other Blacks by keeping the kettle of racial hatred and mis-trust intensely stirred isn’t anything new. Great pre-1960’s Civil Rights Leader Booker T. Washington prophetically stated, “There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”
The History Channel could have picked any day other than Memorial Day to air Roots. It could have chosen to air something historically positive, patriotic, and or uplifting and inspiring. But it purposefully chose not to. The heads of the History Channel should be ashamed of themselves for rather than using a day to bring us together to remember why we are so blessed to be united as Americans, to remember the best in us, the great American heroes who gave their lives for the benefit of those to come after them of this country, and for the rest of the free world, to instead choosing to highlight a destructive and divisive period in our nation’s history, to use it for a day of propagandazation of the worst of us, to further divide us for the benefit of only our enemies, whether they be from without or within. Days such as Memorial Day should be a time for all Americans, no matter our ethnicity, to be reminded of all the reasons we should be proud to be Americans and living in, what is still the greatest nation led by Divine Providence in which we are the only nation to declare in writing that ALL men are created equal and receive our inalienable rights through God, and not man-America.
At the end of the day, we each determine whether we to be free or slave.
Here we go again. We are purposely being distracted from real issues that can actually bring this nation out of the worst economic downturn since the ’29 Depression to expend energies on an issue that wasn’t on anyone’s map before the Media and the Administration put it there. Kinda like the healthcare “crisis” that made it crucial for the government to ram Obama-care down our throats; or the financial “crisis” that made it crucial that the government pass the Dodd-Frank financial over haul with scant public exposure.
Now Mexico being located to the south of us and like-gender individual’s relationships have now been thrust up the sleeping American people for yet another “crisis” that the United States government has to solve. But unlike Obama-care and Dodd-Frank that will have negative economic reverberations for generations to come, the issues regarding the illegal-immigration, of Mexicans in particularly, and same-sex marriage is a seismic social earthquake of mega-tone proportions that will forever change the nation’s moral landscape.
The government directly creating a crisis and or creating the environment for a crisis for it to inevitably offer the solution to move the American people into a direction that benefits its longing for power and control is nothing new. A very good argument can be made that the move of many Black Americans from free man to slave was for the political benefit of the government, specifically the Democrat Party, in concert with big business and the Church. The solution of the government was then to prescribe a new political status and classification, Civil Rights and the U.S Citizen. And we all know how unified we are due to that. Don’t we?
Maybe its only fitting that we as a nation find ourselves again struggling with the government attempting to provide another solution dealing with governmental status and classification, whether someone is to be identified as being legally illegible to receive government privileges and how much the government can benefit from such illegibility. Don’t fool yourself folks the government increasing its tax base and expanding its power and control over its Citizens is what this is really all about. .
Several liberal Media pundits have already spilled the beans about how the government would financially benefit by reclassifying marriage to include same-sex persons. What many of us may not be aware of is the fact that gays and lesbians generally earn more money than Hetero-Sexuals. Also, it has been reported that reforming the immigration system would actually cost the Social Security Administration Billions due to the fact as things stand now though millions of illegal-immigrants pay into Social Security, the Administration doesn’t have to pay out to them. Wonder why we don’t see millions of illegal-immigrants demanding to be U.S Citizens or millions of gays and lesbians demanding to be regulated by the government like their hetero-sexual counterparts marching across the nation? Its simply because this is a government initiated cause. And when the people most of the several states have voted they have fervently voted against illegal-immigration and the redefining of marriage to include same-sex persons.
There are two facts that are indisputable regarding these two issues legally according to the government’s own law, and they are in Black’s Law Dictionary 2ndEd. marriage is defined, “as distinguished from the agreement to marry and from the act of becoming married, Is the civil status of one man and one woman united in law for life, for the discharge to each other and the community of the duties legally incumbent on those whose associationis founded on the distinction of sex.” And according to theFederal Immigration and Nationality Act Section 8 USC 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv)(b)(iii), “Any person who . . . encourages or induces an alien to . . . reside . . . knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such . . . residence is . . . in violation of law, shall be punished as provided . . . for each alien in respect to whom such a violation occurs . .. fined under title 18 . . . imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both.” If these are laws and precedents that have lasted for as long as this nation has been in existence, and now all of the sudden the government itself is seeking to subjugate them, rather than have an open and honest discussion about them with us the people to possibly have the laws changed or amended, one has to ask, what is really going on? The government chooses to engage in dishonest, divisive, and manipulative propaganda.The government chooses to not reduce the red tape, onerous regulations, and massive bureaucracy that causes the horrific backlog that keeps so many wanting and qualified immigrants from LEGALLY coming to and staying in America, and not to rightly enforce its current immigration laws. And it chooses to not simply leave marriage defined as what it has always been in this country and dating as far back as Ancient Rome – a union between a man and a woman to promote procreation and a stable society – and create another political status, Civil Union, with its own governance and qualifications. It chooses to seek to have intellectually vacant arguments and attempts to redefine terms and words such as, what is is. What is a man? What is legal? And what is marriage? Despite the government’s propaganda, this issue is not about “equality”, but political status and classification for both the financial and political benefit of the government. As Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas truthfully stated, “Government cannot make us equal; it can only recognize, respect, and protect us as equal before the law.”
It is interesting that the one political party that has been the instigator in America’s most divisive social movements has been the Democratic Party. And like in the past, a combination of politics, big business, and the church, are instigative parties in these movements. I’m not saying. I’m just saying.
The great hazard of frivolously and loosely choosing to redefining words and customs that have stood for generations and centuries with little regard of the consequences to the society as a whole is to question is anything sacred? Are there any longer any absolutes? Can we any longer definitively claim what is acceptable and not acceptable? How do we stand up and say no if no is no longer clearly definable? How can we then say this is right and this is wrong or that this is good and this bad? And is is is?
Alexis de Tocqueville once prophetically stated, “America is great because America is good. If America ever ceases to be good it will cease to be great.” This is what this battle is about. America’s moral soul. And how our next generations will view issues of morality. In truth, there is little light between what effects social issues and what effects economic issues. They are both of the same stick. It is only our fundamentally sound moral compass that keeps us from one day awakening to a nation engulfed in flames. It is ultimately up to us to chose.
Recently Mr. Obama’s representative remarked that the Republican Party was looking to put blacks back into chains. Who was that representative of Mr. Obama? It was none other his Vice President Joe Biden. As he spoke to a group mostly of Black Americans at a campaign stop in Virginia referring to the notion that freeing America’s financial institutions, i.e., “unchain Wall Street”, would in fact be a horrible thing, as he arrogantly stated to the crowd, “They’re gonna put y’all back in chains.” Now mind you this is a largely crowed of Black Americans that he said this to. And in the audio amazingly you can actually hear some laughter from the crowd. This is the Vice President, who happens to be a member of the Democratic Party, who’s saying this, so it must be true. Right? So it’s ok for him to say it. Right? And since no one in the Establishment Media or the Republican Party is voicefully rebutting the claim that it was the Republican Party who put blacks in America in chains in the first place, it must be true. Right? I can think of no truer Maxim at this moment than, “that an unrebutted claim stands as truth”. The truth is actually that it was the Democratic Party who has gone through great lengths to place and keep the Black American in bondage, when not physically, then most certainly mentally. This unrebutted lie is the most tragic distortion and outright falsification of history ever projected on the American people because it preys on the ignorant and the intellectually uninitiated, and it becomes a tool to divide the people of this nation. The historical truth is that from Lincoln till today it has been the Republican Party that has sought to free the Black American, and every American, both physically and economically.
According the author and historian David Barton in his book, Setting the Record Straight: American History in Black and White, the Democratic Party, particularly the southern democrats, was the proponents of not only Negro, i.e. Black American, slavery, but never allowing the Black American to gain his just liberties and freedoms. Even after the Congress with the 1789 Northwest Ordinance forbid slavery in any territory seeking to become part of the Union and virtually ending slavery in America by the 1800’s. But it was the Democratic Party-led Congress that reversed the Northwest Ordinance’s banned on slavery in federal territories with the 1820 Missouri Compromise and the 1854 Kansas-Nebraska Act making slavery federal policy. It was the Democratic Party who introduced the 1850 Fugitive Slave Law that gave rise to American Blacks fleeing the South all the way to Canada via the “Underground Railroad” .
Also according to Mr. Barton’s book, it wasn’t till the creation of the Republican Party and its entry of the Presidential election of 1856 that the tide of slavery would began to be beaten back politically with its platform including 6 planks of equality and rights for the Black American. In 1860 the Republican Party took control of the Congress and the White House with the election of Abraham Lincoln, thus beginning the galactic battle between the pro-slavery position of the Democratic Party and the anti-slavery position of the Republican Party. I think that a good argument can be made that if not for the fervent and extreme pro-slavery position of the democrats there may not have been a “civil war”. But, that is just my opinion. Some point of facts; it was the Republican Party that passed the 13th Amendment to Abolish Slavery, the 14th Amendment extending government protected privileges to freed slaves, and the 15th Amendment granting voting privileges to Black Americans, and the 1875 Civil Rights Act, the 1964 Civil Rights Act and 1965 Voting Rights Acts, and some dozens of anti-slavery laws, all of which had very very little Democratic support, if any; it was the Republican Party that welcomed blacks to hold political offices, both state-wide and at the federal level, as well as prominent positions throughout the political spectrum from the “Civil War” till today, irrespective of the election of the first African-American as president being a Democrat; it was the Democratic Party that created vast extreme measures and knew of no bounds to suppress the Black American’s rising political strength, even murder and violence; it was the Democratic Party that had the nation’s first Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan as a leader of its National Convention in 1868, as well as noted ex-Klansmen and white supremacist as congressional members that included the late Senator Robert Byrd and Strom Thurmond (prior to becoming republican); up until the election of John Kennedy, it was the Republican Party that was the home for blacks in America. Let’s remember what party was in power in the southern States in the 60’s. If one were to add up all the Blacks who have represented the Republican Party and the Democrat Party, he would have no doubt that it is the party of Lincoln who has welcomed black political participation. It was Republican Rep. Joseph Hayne Rainey who prophetically stated, “You gentlemen on the other side of the House have voted against all the … amendments of the Constitution and the laws enforcing the same. Why did you do it? I answer, because those had a tendency to give to poor Negro his just rights -… and give him freedom of action, and the opportunity of education, that he might elevate himself to the dignity of manhood. Now you come to us and say that you are our best friends. We would that we could look upon you as such. We would that your votes as recorded … from day to day could only demonstrate it. But your votes, your actions, and the constant cultivation of your cherished prejudices prove to the Negroes of the entire country that the Democrats could have sway, our race would have no foothold here … The Democratic Party may woo us, they may court us and try to us to worship at their shrine, but I will tell the gentlemen that are Republicans by instinct, and will be Republicans as long as God will allow our proper senses to sway over us.” He stated this in 1872. Rainey was one of the first seven American Blacks elected to the Congress after the “Civil War”. All were Republican. If one was to review the policies and motives of the Democratic Party he would see that it is it that encourages dependency and servitude, while it is the Republican Party encourages independence and self-reliance. History tells the perverted truth that it is the Party founded by Thomas Jefferson, the Democratic Party, who wants to place chains about the head, wrist, and ankles of the those wanting to be free. Freedom was never meant to be convenient, easy, nor for those not wanting to take ownership and responsibility for their lives.
The distortion of history and truth is most prevalent in this nation. Coupled with intellectual deprivation that is encouraged in this culture makes the words uttered by the Vice President even more concerning because it does nothing to begin to enlighten, inform, or unite Americans. Instead it seeks to only ignite the smoldering embers of hate based on ignorance and stupidity of who we are as Americans and where we have come from to be such. 106 B.C. Roman Philosopher Marcus Tullius Cicero said it best when he said, “To be ignorant of what happened before you were born… is to live the life of a child forever.” Imagine how different our nation would be if true history wasn’t hidden in the dark, manipulated/distorted, and presented to too many of us like bitter vegetables, but displayed in the light to be examined, discussed, appreciated, and resolved? So as such malicious statements such as that which Mr. Biden uttered would be cause for him, and others of his ilk, to run for sheer shame and dishonor and dare not be seen or heard from again.
