Wednesday, June 19, 2019, was the latest rendition of belligerent, accomplish-nothing colored reparationists trying to extort money vis-a`-vis the lies surrounding history.
This time around they employed a House of Representatives Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties hearing on H.R. 40. The intent was to “establish a commission to study and consider a national apology and proposal for reparations for the institution of slavery, its subsequent de jure and de facto racial and economic discrimination against African-Americans and the impact of these forces on living African-Americans.”
The Kabuki theater dog and pony show featured the Fidel Castro loving commie, Danny Glover, who’s IQ is rivaled only by empty soup cans. Another speaker was Ta-Nehisi Coates who is the body part for which bathroom tissue was invented. I rebuked an article by Coates in which he claimed there was “no such thing as black on black crime” at time when 94 percent of all blacks shot, killed and murdered where shot, killed and murdered by another black person(s).
The bill itself was introduced by Sheila Jackson Lee, D-TX, and Cory Booker, D-NJ. Together one of them represents how not to put lipstick on a pig and the other “allegedly wink-wink,” represents how to grope a woman against her will and how to drag a homosexual man into a public bathroom and sexually assault him. I’ll leave it up to you to pin the tail on the appropriate “Donkey”, i.e., Democrat, pursuant to which is which.
I am re-sharing two syndicated op-ed pieces I’ve written explaining why blacks are not owed nor do they deserve reparations. For their intended purposes at this time, I’m sharing them as Part I and Part II. They detail what Lee, Booker and the other malevolents either: A) do not know; or B) do not want you to know. Personally I’m going with A and B.
No Group More Evil Than White Liberal Progressives; July 30, 2018
If I were asked: “Can there be a more despicable cabal of liars, deceivers, and Erebusic marplots than liberal white progressives?” My answer would be yes, but not on this earth – the only ones worse are burning in the prosaic netherworld of Lucifer’s eternal abiding place.”
Some may be thinking: “C’mon Mychal, that’s harsh even by your straightforwardness. “ But, let me explain.
The emotional, psychological and behavioral damage that progressives have done to blacks cannot be overstated. And just as the greatest trick Satan ever played was convincing people that he doesn’t exist, these brutish Mohocks have convinced blacks they alone have their best interests in mind contrary to all empirical evidence.
A Gordian knot is more soluble than it is to answer the question of why any black persons in their right mind support and/or trust neo-Leninist liberals? Are the overwhelming majority of blacks completely incapable of recognizing what progressives have done to them? I pause to say this is not a treatise on why blacks should be Republicans; it is a treatise on how can they be Democrats?
White progressives have enslaved blacks on a plantation of emotional and psychological inferiority since the beginning of the 20th century when Vladimir Lenin and W.E.B. du Bois formed their ungodly alliance that philosophically continues until today.
It’s resultant of voting rights provisions established by Republicans, in the mid 1700s, “towns such as Baltimore had more blacks than whites voting in elections; and when the proposed US Constitution was placed before the citizens in 1787 and 1788, it was ratified by both black and white voters in a number of States.” (See: Black History Issue 2003; wallbuilders.com) During Reconstruction, there were some 2,000 blacks that held public office. Some were former salves. This was because of “the passage of explicit constitutional voting rights for blacks in 1870” by Republicans.
It was rabid segregationist progressive Democrats who after regaining power in 1882 reversed all of the Constitutional freedoms, i.e., equal rights, that Republicans had legislated for the former slaves. Democrats would suppress equal rights for blacks the next 83 years until the signing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Democrats used the Klu Klux Klan (KKK) and codified Jim Crow laws to deny blacks equal rights. D.W. Griffith produced the epically racist movie, “Birth of a Nation” in 1915 to portray blacks as savages. It helped KKK Democrats further subjugate blacks under Jim Crow.
It’s a fact that Democrat president Lyndon Johnson sought the help of Republicans led by Senator, Everett Dirksen, R-IL. Dirksen was the Republican Senate Minority Leader from 1959 to 1969, which means the Democrat majority could have written and passed Civil Rights legislation anytime they wanted.
And while it’s true that 153 Congressional Democrats voted for the Act only 9 of them were from the South, with a full one-third of Senate Democrats voting against the Act.
Suppose there was a more draconian reason for Johnson employing Republican Dirksen to carry the ball. I believe a strong argument can be made that Johnson took the route that he did to protect Southern Democrats. It was a calculated risk that by having Republicans push the Act through and Northern Democrats vote in the majority he could both protect Southern Democrats who were rabid racist segregationists, and also use the introduction of Great Society initiatives and the carrot of entitlements to deceive blacks into believing progressives were their best friends and saviors.
White progressive Democrats are singular in their objective to retain blacks as their personal voting bloc. Blacks are skillfully manipulated into violent outbursts and demonstrations while progressive puppet masters lurk in the shadows. The plaintive cry of progressives is that everyone and everything that they disagree with is racist.
Which bridges me to President Trump. When did President Trump become a racist? Was it when virtually every black entertainer entertainment group and athlete spent time with him at his hotels, casinos, and on his golf courses?
Google surreptitiously uses their ability to determine what websites appear first when President Trump’s name is googled; not surprisingly everything one sees is anti-President Trump. Going only by the first page of Google it’s easy to see why those who simply stop there, thoughtlessly believe what they read.
One headline from PBS, the taxpayer supported Public Broadcast System, read “Every Moment In Trump’s Charged Relationship With Race.” My question is just when was that? Just when did that supposedly take place? PBS like all progressive outlets spins truth and makes it racist. Was President Trump racist when blacks from Muhammad Ali to Mike Tyson, to the biggest and best-known black musicians and actors wined, dined, and took in shows with him?
These political hatchet jobs are taken from the progressive Democrat playbook. White progressives have done nothing for blacks but keep them angry, unemployed, uneducated, on food stamps, welfare, and in public housing. But the moment America has a President who has made quantifiable leaps forward for all Americans and specifically blacks, white progressives say he’s racist. And blacks, after all years of evidence to the contrary, still believe them.
Let’s Demand ‘Reparations’ From Blacks For Riots and Violent Protests; December 11, 2017
Certainly not all, but it’s safe to say the majority of blacks openly claim or quietly believe the lie that America was built by slaves. Many people, and especially many black people, are not interested in factual truths; they’re only interested in lies and distortions that augment and support their ignorance.
The truth about slavery in America is that it existed. It was immoral but it was not illegal. At no time did America supplant any Eastern country as having the most slaves or a country that supplied slaves to other countries. America participated in slavery only briefly and only in limited locales. America didn’t invent slavery any more than America created crazed jihadists.
When the American Republic was founded in 1776, slavery not only literally existed everywhere on earth, but it was an accepted aspect of human history for centuries before Moses was born and eventually led Israel out of Egyptian bondage.
Following are facts about slavery that the purveyors of white guilt are ignorant of: Aristotle further opined that “it is clear that there are certain people who are free and certain who are slaves by nature, and it is both to their advantage, and just, for them to be slaves.” The Romans seized so many captives from Eastern Europe that the terms “Slav” and “slave” bore the same origins. All the great cultures of the ancient world, from Egypt to Babylonia, Athens to Rome, Persia to India to China, depended upon the brutal enslavement of the masses – often representing heavy majorities of the population. Contrary to the glamorization of aboriginal New World cultures, the Mayas, Aztecs and Incas counted among the most brutal slave-masters of them all — not only turning the members of other tribes into harshly abused beasts of burden but also using these conquered enemies to feed a limitless lust for human sacrifice. The Tupinamba, a powerful tribe on the coast of Brazil south of the Amazon, took huge numbers of captives, then humiliated them for months or years, before engaging in mass slaughter of their victims in ritualized cannibalistic feasts. In Africa, slavery also represented a timeless norm long before any intrusion by Europeans. Moreover, the Portuguese, Spanish, Dutch or British slave traders rarely penetrated far beyond the coasts: the actual capture and kidnapping of the millions of victims always occurred at the hands of neighboring tribes. As the great African-American historian Nathan Huggins pointed out, “virtually all of the enslavement of Africans was carried out by other Africans” but the concept of an African “race” was the invention of Western colonists, and most African traders “saw themselves as selling people other than their own.” (Six Inconvenient Truths About The U.S. and Slavery; Michael Medved; Townhall.com; 9/26/2007)
The myth that America became wealthy because of slave labor is just that – a myth. America became wealthy despite slave labor. The most prosperous states in the country were those that first freed their slaves. As Medved states: “Pennsylvania passed an emancipation law in 1780; Connecticut and Rhode Island followed four years later (all before the Constitution). New York approved emancipation in 1799. These states (with dynamic banking centers in Philadelphia and Manhattan) quickly emerged as robust centers of commerce and manufacturing, greatly enriching themselves while the slave-based economies in the South languished by comparison…All analyses of Northern victory in the great sectional struggle highlights the vast advantages in terms of wealth and productivity in New England, the Mid-Atlantic States and the Midwest, compared to the relatively backward and impoverished states of the Confederacy.”
Devin Foley, co founder and president of the Intellectual Takeout wrote: “Turning back to ‘Warfare In The Western World,’ we find statistics that show just how dramatic the differences in populations and economic power were between the free North and the slave South. … “But in a longer struggle the North’s advantages were substantial. With a population of 20 million, the Northern states obviously possessed a much larger military manpower base, but their industrial capacity was far greater as well. In 1860 the North had over 110,000 manufacturing establishments, the South just 18,000. The North produced 94 percent of the country’s iron, 97 percent of is coal and – not incidentally – 97 percent of its firearms. It contained 22,000 miles of railroad to the South’s 8,500. The North outperformed the South agriculturally as well. Northerners held 75 percent of the country’s farm acreage, produced 60 percent of its livestock, 67 percent of its corn, and 81 percent of its wheat. All in all, they held 75 percent of the nation’s total wealth.” (No, Slavery Didn’t Build America: It’s A Popular Narrative, But History Doesn’t Support It; 3/2/2016)
Foley also notes: “That final statistic combined with the North’s victory in the Civil War should be sufficient to dispel the idea that America was built on slavery. Keep in mind, too, that not all of the wealth in the South was generated by slaves. Free men in the South also worked their own fields and industries.”
Medved further points out that: “Yale historian David Brion Davis in his definitive 2006 history ‘Inhuman Bondage: The Rise and Fall Of Slavery In The New World’ notes that colonial North America…surprisingly received only 5 to 6 percent of the African slaves shipped across the Atlantic. Meanwhile, the Arab slave trade (primarily from East Africa) lasted longer and enslaved more human beings than the European slavers working the other side of the continent… when taking the prodigious and unspeakably cruel Islamic enslavements into the equation, at least 97 percent of all African men, women and children who were kidnapped, sold, and taken from their homes, were sent somewhere other than the British colonies of North America. In this context there is no historical basis to claim that the United States bears primary, or even prominent guilt for the depredations of centuries of African slavery.”
Armed with these facts it would be nice to enlighten “The National Coalition of Blacks for Reparations in America” to factual reality. Said Reparationists are in the midst of attempting to shake down and extort money from University of Chicago; because supposedly: “Like so many other venerable American institutions, the University of Chicago is built on slavery…Hundreds of enslaved people lived and died on [the Douglas] plantation to make the University of Chicago and its $7 billion endowment, possible. [Ergo,] reparations are long overdue.” This is based upon a published paper by four University of Chicago graduate students from the history department. The paper detailed the University of Chicago’s founding with profits from enslavements.
The very idea of this extortion attempt should be subjected to harshest rebuke. It’s time for blacks that bathe in the immiseration of lies and blackmail, to cease and desist. In the absence of that I say we should counter their arguments by holding them financially accountable for the cities and personal property they have destroyed by rioting, violent protest, and the looting that accompanies same.
Instead of allowing institutions and businesses to be blackmailed under the guise of being held accountable, I say we teach blacks what accountability is, by holding them financially responsible for the murder and mayhem they commit.
