Blacks and the Confederacy

Leave a comment

This is by Walter E. Williams. 

This will piss off the race baiters and the liberals.

 

Last July, Anthony Hervey, an outspoken black advocate for the Confederate flag, was killed in a car crash. Arlene Barnum, a surviving passenger in the vehicle, told authorities and the media that they had been forced off the road by a carload of “angry young black men” after Hervey, while wearing his Confederate kepi, stopped at a convenience store en route to his home in Oxford, Mississippi. His death was in no small part caused by the gross level of ignorance, organized deceit and anger about the War of 1861. Much of the ignorance stems from the fact that most Americans believe the war was initiated to free slaves, when in truth, freeing slaves was little more than an afterthought. I want to lay out a few quotations and ask what you make of them.

During the “Civil War,” ex-slave Frederick Douglass observed, “There are at the present moment many colored men in the Confederate army doing duty not only as cooks, servants and laborers, but as real soldiers, having muskets on their shoulders, and bullets in their pockets, ready to shoot down loyal troops, and do all that soldiers may to destroy the Federal Government and build up that of the traitors and rebels” (Douglass’ Monthly, September 1861).

“For more than two years, negroes had been extensively employed in belligerent operations by the Confederacy. They had been embodied and drilled as Rebel soldiers, and had paraded with White troops at a time when this would not have been tolerated in the armies of the Union.” (Horace Greeley, in his book, “The American Conflict”).

“Over 3,000 negroes must be included in this number (of Confederate troops). These were clad in all kinds of uniforms, not only in cast-off or captured United States uniforms, but in coats with Southern buttons, State buttons, etc. These were shabby, but not shabbier or seedier than those worn by white men in rebel ranks. Most of the negroes had arms, rifles, muskets, sabres, bowie-knives, dirks, etc. They were supplied, in many instances, with knapsacks, haversacks, canteens, etc., and were manifestly an integral portion of the Southern Confederacy Army. They were seen riding on horses and mules, driving wagons, riding on caissons, in ambulances, with the staff of Generals, and promiscuously mixed up with all the rebel horde” (report by Dr. Lewis H. Steiner, chief inspector of the U.S. Sanitary Commission).

In April 1861, a Petersburg, Virginia, newspaper proposed “three cheers for the patriotic free Negroes of Lynchburg” after 70 blacks offered “to act in whatever capacity” had been “assigned to them” in defense of Virginia.

Those are but a few examples of the important role that blacks served as soldiers, freemen and slaves on the side of the Confederacy. The flap over the Confederate flag is not quite so simple as the nation’s race “experts” make it. They want us to believe the flag is a symbol of racism. Yes, racists have used the Confederate flag as their symbol, but racists have also marched behind the U.S. flag and have used the Bible. Would anyone suggest banning the U.S. flag from state buildings and references to the Bible?

Black civil rights activists, their white liberal supporters and historically ignorant Americans who attack the Confederate flag have committed a deep, despicable dishonor to our patriotic Southern black ancestors who marched, fought and died not to protect slavery but to protect their homeland from Northern aggression. They don’t deserve the dishonor. Dr. Leonard Haynes, a black professor at Southern University, stated, “When you eliminate the black Confederate soldier, you’ve eliminated the history of the South.”

The Wheel and Beer . . .

1 Comment

Hat Tip To Odie@Woodsterman.

 

The two most important events in all of history were 
the invention  of beer and the invention of the wheel… 

Beer  required grain and that was the  beginning of agriculture.
Neither  the glass bottle nor aluminum can were invented yet,so  while our early humans were sitting around waiting  
for  them to be invented,

They just stayed close to the  brewery. 
That’s how villages were  formed.

The  wheel was invented to get man to the  beer.

These  two were the foundation of modern 
civilization and, together,were the catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct subgroups:

1. Liberals.

2.  Conservatives.

Some  men spent their days tracking and killing animals 
to BBQ  at night while they were drinking beer.

This was the  beginning of what is known as the 
Conservative movement.

Other  men who were less skilled at hunting learned to 
live off  the conservatives by showing up for the nightly 
BBQ’s and  doing the sewing, fetching, and hairdressing. 
This was the  beginning of the Liberal movement.

Some  of these liberal men evolved into women. 
Others became  known as girlie-men.

Some noteworthy 
Liberal achievements  include the domestication of cats, 
the invention of group  therapy, group hugs, and the 
concept of democratic voting  to decide how to divide 
the meat and beer that  Conservatives provided.

Over  the years Conservatives came to be symbolized 
by the  largest, most powerful land animal on earth, 
the elephant.  Liberals are symbolized by the jackass 
for obvious  reasons.

Modern  Liberals like lite beer (with lime added), 
but most prefer  white wine or imported bottled water. 
They eat raw fish  but like their beef well done. Sushi, 
tofu, and French  food are standard Liberal fare. 
Another interesting  evolutionary side note: many 
Liberal women have higher  testosterone levels 
than their men.

Most  college professors, social workers, personal 
injury  attorneys, journalists, filmmakers in Hollywood, 
group  therapists and community organizers are Liberals. 
Liberals  meddled in our national pastime and invented the  designated hitter rule because it wasn’t fair to make the pitcher also bat.

Conservatives  drink real beer. They eat red meat and 
still provide for  their women. Conservatives are big 
game hunters, rodeo  cowboys, lumberjacks, construction 
workers, firemen,  medical doctors, police officers, engineers, corporate  executives, athletes, members of the military, airline  pilots, and generally anyone who works productively.   
Conservatives who own companies hire other conservatives  who want to work for a living.

Liberals  produce little or nothing. They like to govern the  producers and decide what to do with the production.  
Liberals believe Europeans are more enlightened than  
Americans. That is why most of the Liberals remained in  
Europe when Conservatives were coming to America . 
They  crept in after the Wild West was tamed and created a  business of trying to get more for  nothing.

Here  ends today’s lesson in world history.

It should be noted  that a Liberal may have a momentary urge to angrily  respond 
to this post.

A  Conservative will simply laugh and be so convinced of the  absolute truth of this history that it will be shared  immediately to other true believers and to just piss off  more liberals.

And there you have it. Let your next action reveal your true self.

I’m going to have another  beer.

The True Black Tragedy: Illegitimacy Rate of Nearly 75%

Leave a comment

This is from CNSNews.

Liberals have destroyed black families, yet the blacks are so uniformed they think DemocRats have their best interests at heart. 

Hustlers and people with little understanding want us to believe that today’s black problems are the continuing result of a legacy of slavery, poverty and racial discrimination. The fact is that most of the social pathology seen in poor black neighborhoods is entirely new in black history. Let’s look at some of it.

Today the overwhelming majority of black children are raised in single female-headed families. As early as the 1880s, three-quarters of black families were two-parent. In 1925 New York City, 85 percent of black families were two-parent. One study of 19th-century slave families found that in up to three-fourths of the families, all the children had the same mother and father.

Today’s black illegitimacy rate of nearly 75 percent is also entirely new. In 1940, black illegitimacy stood at 14 percent. It had risen to 25 percent by 1965, when Daniel Patrick Moynihan wrote “The Negro Family: The Case for National Action” and was widely condemned as a racist. By 1980, the black illegitimacy rate had more than doubled, to 56 percent, and it has been growing since. Both during slavery and as late as 1920, a teenage girl raising a child without a man present was rare among blacks.

Much of today’s pathology seen among many blacks is an outgrowth of the welfare state that has made self-destructive behavior less costly for the individual. Having children without the benefit of marriage is less burdensome if the mother receives housing subsidies, welfare payments and food stamps. Plus, the social stigma associated with unwed motherhood has vanished. Female-headed households, whether black or white, are a ticket for dependency and all of its associated problems. Ignored in all discussions is the fact that the poverty rate among black married couples has been in single digits since 1994.

Black youth unemployment in some cities is over 50 percent. But high black youth unemployment is also new. In 1948, the unemployment rate for black teens was slightly less than that of their white counterparts — 9.4 percent compared with 10.2.

During that same period, black youths were either just as active in the labor force or more so than white youths. Since the 1960s, both the labor force participation rate and the employment rate of black youths have fallen to what they are today. Why? Are employers more racially discriminatory today than yesteryear? Were black youths of yesteryear more skilled than whites of yesteryear? The answer to both questions is a big fat no.

The minimum wage law and other labor regulations have cut off the bottom rungs of the economic ladder. Put yourself in the place of an employer, and ask: If I must pay $7.25 an hour — plus mandated fringes, such as Social Security and workers’ compensation — would it pay me to hire a worker who is so unfortunate as to possess skills that enable him to produce only $5 worth of value per hour? Most employers view that as a losing economic proposition. Thus, the minimum wage law discriminates against the employment of low-skilled workers, who are most often youths — particularly black youths.

The little bit of money a teenager can earn through after-school, weekend and summer employment is not nearly so important as the other things he gains from early work experiences. He acquires skills and develops good work habits, such as being prompt, following orders and respecting supervisors. In addition, there are the self-respect and pride that a youngster gains from being financially semi-independent. All of these gains from early work experiences are important for any teen but are even more important for black teens. If black teens are going to learn anything that will make them a more valuable employee in the future, they aren’t going to learn it from their rotten schools, their dysfunctional families or their crime-ridden neighborhoods. They must learn it on the job.

The bulk of today’s problems for many blacks are a result of politicians and civil rights organizations using government in the name of helping blacks when in fact they are serving the purposes of powerful interest groups.

HOW LIBERALS DISTORT AMERICAN HISTORY

1 Comment

This is from Patriot UpDate.

Another reason to homeschool your children.

 

The United States has a rich history of which all Americans can be proud. It’s not perfect, but it is very good. America’s record among the community of nations is a sterling example of what people of good will can do when they enjoy the blessings of liberty, freedom, and self-determination. But liberals don’t see things this way. To them America’s history is a shameful record characterized by military adventurism, imperialism, and exploitation. Most liberals can find little good to say about America—past or present—and they use our nation’s public schools, colleges, and universities to pass their disdain on to successive generations of susceptible young people. Here are some examples of how liberals view America’s history and teach it in the public schools:

  • The American Revolution was flawed because it failed to free the slaves. The French Revolution was better (in spite of the orgy of mass murder).
  • America’s Founding Fathers were a bunch of patriarchal slaveholders unworthy of more than a brief mention in history books.
  • Democracy is a good thing—provided the left is in control.
  • All southerners during the War Between the States were bad—they all fought to preserve slavery.
  • California and Texas were taken from their rightful owners—Mexico—by Yankee imperialists backed by the U.S. military. Those Americans killed at the Alamo got what they deserved.
  • The Panama Canal is an example of the forceful expansionism and international bullying of an American president.
  • Hoover caused the Great Depression by relying on free-market economics and FDR ended it through government intervention. World War II had nothing to do with America’s economic recovery.
  • World War I and II were fought to help America’s imperialist allies retain their colonies worldwide.
  • Dropping the atomic bombs on Nagasaki and Hiroshima amounted to war crimes on the part of the U.S. military.
  • Joseph McCarthy was wrong about there being communists in the U.S. government.
  • Vietnam was an unjust war, soldiers who fought there are baby killers, and the only heroes of the war are those who burned their draft cards and refused to serve in the military.
  • Johnson’s “war on poverty” is an excellent example of how government programs can make the world a better place.
  • Because of the crushing remnants of slavery, minorities in America will perpetually need and should be given special privileges such as Affirmative Action to level the playing field.
  • Ronald Reagan was an over-the-hill politician who acted his way into the presidency. He was one of the worst presidents in America’s history.
  • Government programs, statism, and socialism are good. Private enterprise and free markets are bad.
  • Freedom of the press is a good thing, but conservative talk radio should be outlawed.
  • The Bill of Rights is commendable, but the Second Amendment should be repealed.
  • The religious freedom in the First Amendment does not apply to Christian businesses that are singled out for bullying tactics by homosexual advocacy groups.

Readers can probably add examples of their own concerning how liberals view America’s history. Nothing is more hypocritical than exploiting the Constitutional freedoms granted to all Americans to distort the history of the nation that affords those very freedoms to its citizens. But this is exactly what liberals do when they purposefully distort America’s history. What is worse is that these distortions are what liberals are teaching your children if you send them to public schools.

Bible Study

Remember what Jesus said: ‘Goats on the left, sheep on the right’ (Matthew 25:33).
Jesus also told Peter that if he wanted to catch fish do it from the right side of the boat.   They did and filled the boat with fish.
John 21:6 (NIV) … He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish.”
Origin of Left & Right…
I have often wondered why it is that Conservatives are called the “right”  and Liberals are called the “left”.
By chance I stumbled upon this verse in the Bible:    (NIV) – “The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left.”
Thus sayeth the Lord.   Amen.
It surely can’t get any simpler than that.

Walkin’ On The Fightin’ Side Of Me

The video and the words of the man that posted the video sum up the mood I am in.

 

I know a lot of Conservative people who are getting tired of being disrespected by Liberals who seem to hate America the way it is and who are determined to destroy the things we value and have reverence for. I for one am tired of being called names for disagreeing with the policies our current president is trying to force us to accept. I’m tired of hearing Liberals talk bad about America and then trying to BLOCK those who oppose them from speaking at all! This song somewhat sums up how I feel.

White’s Under Attack? One Video Shows What’s Happening to Whites in America

This is from Patriot Videos.net.

White America better wake up real fast.

 

Screen-Shot-2015-01-23-at-2.58.43-PM

 

The racial landscape of America is a lot different than it was 50 years ago. So what does that mean for White Americans?

Mostly, despite liberals claims, they’re not the ones who are the ones shaping policy. It’s the minorities who are, and it’s the Democrats who’re enabling this (mostly by allowing illegal aliens into the country and inflaming race wars).

Yes, whites still are the majority, but other racial groups have been making steady gains and it’s creating an ever more diverse population.

This isn’t a bad thing necessarily.

Watch the video

America’s great because it embraces all races and beliefs.

But the implications that whites are shaping all policy is untrue.  Democrats pander to minorities based on racial issues alone and they get a lot of support and the ability to shape policy because of that.

Do you think that’s true?

7 Ways Liberals Are Just As Bad As The People They Hate Most

2 Comments

This is from Town Hall.

 

“Words mean nothing to liberals. They say whatever will help advance their cause at the moment, switch talking points in a heartbeat, and then act indignant if anyone uses the exact same argument they were using five minutes ago.” — Ann Coulter

“It isn’t so much that liberals are ignorant. It’s just that they know so many things that aren’t so.”Ronald Reagan

Liberals are the mirror image of everything they claim to hate. Their hypocrisy knows no bounds, their ability to unflinchingly examine their own beliefs is practically non-existent and they are almost incapable of objectively examining the policies they advocate. The more fully people become engulfed by liberalism, the more they embrace political correctness, groupthink, and close-mindedness until their thought process becomes little more than simplistic tribalism.

Liberalism is good, just, and best because it’s liberalism. Conservatism is bad, unjust, and worse because it’s conservatism. End of story.

Seldom do liberals realize that they advocate positions that are just as morally repulsive as the grotesque positions they habitually (and usually incorrectly) attribute to people who disagree with them.

Want some examples?

1) It’s just as bad to accuse people of Islamophobia for being concerned about radical Islam as it is to hate decent, patriotic, peaceful people because they happen to be Muslims. If you can’t acknowledge that there are Muslims who love America and just want to live a good life and there are also Muslims who murder, rape and enslave innocent people because they believe Islam endorses it, then it doesn’t matter which side of the fence you come down on; you don’t have a good grasp on reality.

2) It’s just as bad to support race-based groups like La Raza, MEChA, the New Black Panthers, the Nation of Islam and Al Sharpton’s National Action Network as it is to back the KKK, the Aryan Nation and the American Nazi Party. They may have different levels of societal acceptance, but they’re all race-based groups that are hostile to certain groups of people based on the color of their skin.

3) It’s just as bad to hate men, blame them for everything and accuse them of perpetuating rape culture as it is to hate women and view them as being good for nothing other than having sex, bringing you beer and making you sandwiches. Anyone, male or female, who holds members of the opposite sex in contempt has deep-seated issues that need to be worked through with a psychologist.

4) It’s just as bad to idolize Communists like Mao, Castro, and Che Guevara as it is to idolize Nazis like Adolph Hitler, Heinrich Himmler, and Hermann Goering. They’re both similar ideologies, they both killed tens of millions, and whether an innocent person was sent to his death by a mass murderer like Stalin or a mass murderer like Adolf Eichmann, he’s still dead.

5) It’s just as bad to hate gay Americans for being gay as it is to try to force Christians to unwillingly participate in gay weddings. Just as holding a sign up in front of a gay man’s funeral is an act of hatred, trying to force someone to bake a cake or take pictures at a wedding that goes against his religious beliefs is also an act of hatred.

6) It’s just as bad to support kangaroo courts in colleges that make it easy for men to be falsely accused of rape as it is to be someone who accuses rape victims of having “brought it on themselves” by wearing short skirts. Either way, you’re blaming the victim and making it easier for innocent people to be victimized by the scum of the earth.

7) It’s just as bad to hate children and wish ill on them as it is to run the deficit up into the stratosphere. In fact, the person who detests children may be BETTER than the profligate spender because he may at least avoid them, while those who advocate massive spending increases “for the children” are putting our nation’s children in a financial hole so big that it may swallow their entire future.

Hands Up, Don’t Shoot’ Activists — and Historical Ignorance

1 Comment

This is from Town Hall.

Historical ignorance among liberals and the sheeple that follow them is commonplace.

 

What to say about “activists” pushing the “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” “movement,” even as police shootings of blacks are actually down 75 percent over the last 45 years? Some protestors, many old enough to know better, say ridiculous things about race relations, like “things have gone backward.” Time for perspective.

Booker T. Washington was born a slave. In his autobiography, “Up From Slavery,” written in 1901 — just a mere 36 years after the Civil War — Washington wrote:

“As a rule, not only did the members of my race entertain no feelings of bitterness against the whites before and during the war, but there are many instances of Negroes tenderly caring for their former masters and mistresses who for some reason have become poor and dependent since the war.

I know of instances where the former masters of slaves have for years been supplied with money by their former slaves to keep them from suffering. … One sends him a little coffee or sugar, another a little meat, and so on.

Nothing that the colored people possess is too good for the son of ‘old Mars’ Tom,’ who will perhaps never be permitted to suffer while any remain on the place who knew directly or indirectly of ‘old Mars’ Tom.’…

“From some things that I have said one may get the idea that some of the slaves did not want freedom. This is not true. I have never seen one who did not want to be free, or one who would return to slavery.

“I pity from the bottom of my heart any nation or body of people that is so unfortunate as to get entangled in the net of slavery. I have long since ceased to cherish any spirit of bitterness against the Southern white people on account of the enslavement of my race.

No one section of our country was wholly responsible for its introduction, and, besides, it was recognized and protected for years by the General Government.

Having once got its tentacles fastened on to the economic and social life of the Republic, it was no easy matter for the country to relieve itself of the institution.

Then, when we rid ourselves of prejudice, or racial feeling, and look facts in the face, we must acknowledge that, notwithstanding the cruelty and moral wrong of slavery, the ten million Negroes inhabiting this country, who themselves or whose ancestors went through the school of American slavery, are in a stronger and more hopeful condition, materially, intellectually, morally, and religiously, than is true of an equal number of black people in any other portion of the globe. …

“This I say, not to justify slavery — on the other hand, I condemn it as an institution, as we all know that in America it was established for selfish and financial reasons, and not from a missionary motive — but to call attention to a fact, and to show how Providence so often uses men and institutions to accomplish a purpose.”

As for the future, Washington said: “When a Negro girl learns to cook, to wash dishes, to sew, to write a book, or a Negro boy learns to groom horses, or to grow sweet potatoes, or to produce butter, or to build a house, or to be able to practice medicine, as well or better than some one else, they will be rewarded regardless of race or color.

In the long run, the world is going to have the best, and any difference in race, religion, or previous history will not long keep the world from what it wants.”

Nelson Mandela was beaten and imprisoned for almost three decades. When released at last, some supporters criticized him for showing too much grace and forgiveness toward his enemies. But Mandela’s attitude toward forgiveness set the tone for the nation. After his death, a South African wrote:

“History now shows (Mandela) did lead South Africa back from the abyss. But he did more, and it was this that sealed his reputation forever. He showed the world and his countrymen — black, white, rich, poor — that revenge is not the answer to years of injustice (emphasis added). Who among us, in coming out of prison after 27 years, would have had the generosity to turn away from settling scores? Who among us would have refused to avenge ourselves on those who had treated us with such cruelty?

“But he did. Nelson Mandela sat down with his enemies and forgave them and moved on. And in doing so, he rescued his country, and he rescued each one of us, and gave us hope that there could be a future for our beautiful, fractured land. And for the greater earth that we all share.”

Washington, born a slave, and Mandela, held captive for nearly 28 years, demonstrate the power of forgiveness — and of looking ahead. And these men forgave their actual oppressors.

My mother, born in the Jim Crow South, used to say, “The truth will not set you free — if delivered without hope.” The “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” “movement” is neither truthful nor hopeful.

LA RAZA CLAIMS GOP CAN’T WIN WHITE HOUSE WITHOUT AMNESTY AFTER MIDTERM SHELLACKING

3 Comments

This is from Breitbarts Big Government.

La Raza and liberals said the GOP could not win in 2014 without the illegals getting amnesty.

So now La Raza says the GOP cannot win the White House in 2016 without passing amnesty.

If amnesty passes the GOP will not win in 2016 as they were elected to stop amnesty.

La Raza is a terrorist thug organization.

 

After Republicans resoundingly defeated Democrats in the midterm elections largely due to the backlash against President Barack Obama’s forthcoming executive amnesty, La Raza threatened the party: you won’t win the White House without amnesty.

La Raza President and CEO Janet Murguia claimed “there will never again be an electoral map” and “an electorate as favorable to the Republican Party as in 2016.” In 2016, she claimed, “the demographics of the Electoral College will come home to roost for Republicans.”

“If they continue on this trajectory, Republicans will have elected their last president for the foreseeable future. Latino voter priorities must be reflected in Republican policy priorities,” Murguia said on Wednesday.

Two studies, though, determined that Republicans could win elections in 2014, as the party did, and beyond without passing massive amnesty legislation.

Murguia also told Democrats to “not take our community for granted” and told Obama to “act boldly to bring relief to the millions facing deportation and family separation.”

“The Hispanic community has waited far too long and expects him to fulfill his promise,” Murguia said.

The activist declared earlier this year that “USA! USA!” chants against illegal immigrants “made me angry.
