  • Conservative Black American Role Models Are Being Erased From History

    04/21/2018 12:55:50 PM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 21 replies
    There is a tragedy of historical and philosophical ignorance that is benefitting a tiny handful of people at the expense and well-being of the vast majority of black Americans. This tragedy is the purposeful erasing from the education system the history of successful black Americans before the Civil Rights Movement in the 1950s and the reason for their success and that of large numbers of other blacks. The leading black American at the turn of the 20th century was Booker T. Washington, whose approach was the virtual opposite of todayÂ’s grievance-focused approach that looks to government for personal progress. Washington,...
  • The Right Should Never Cede MLK to the Left

    On the occasion of the 50th Anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King, if you can indulge me a quick soapbox about the political use and abuse of his legacy. I'm not going to argue that MLK was exclusively a man of the right. He wasn't and his legacy isn't. Most of us know of his too close for comfort associations with Communists, as well as the extent to which some of his ideals and rhetoric veered off into leftist territory, particular in his later (and less successful) years. But there is far too much that is valuable about...

    Frederick Douglass was born Frederick “Baily” on a Maryland plantation around Feb. 7, 1817, though no accurate records exist, as he was a slave. He later chose the birth date of February 14 as he remembered his mother calling him her “little valentine.” He never saw his mother in the daylight, as he was separated from her as an infant. He did not know who his father was. Around 12 years old, his master’s sister-in-law, Sophia Auld, was teaching Frederick the alphabet, despite this being against the law. When her husband found out and immediately forbade it, saying that if...

    New York Times columnist Charles Blow has a long history of criticizing Republicans, but he has been particularly hostile toward other blacks who have supported President Trump and those who work in his administration. Here are 5 times Blow belittled and lashed out at Trump supporters who are black: 1. White House communications director for the Office of Public Liaison Omarosa Manigault — In a column published Sunday night, Blow described outgoing White House official Manigault, famous for her villainous reality TV persona, as “odious.” He called her “a fame junkie and check chaser, a devourer of any and all...

    Although completely ignored by the major news networks, President Donald Trump signed into law on Thursday legislation to establish the Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Commission, which will make plans to honor the 200th anniversary of the birth of Frederick Douglass (1818-1895), a slave who escaped to freedom and became a leading orator, abolitionist, writer, publisher, and statesman. Douglass was a Republican who often criticized the slavery-supporting Democratic Party. "It is not true that the Republican Party has not endeavored to protect the negro in his right to vote," said Douglass in an 1888 speech. "The whole moral power of the party...

    DETROIT — John James emerges with confidence from a former Detroit elementary school that has been transformed into a charter high school in the northwest side of the city. It is a stride any parent would hope to see in a son or daughter graduating from this school, founded by Jalen Rose, a former NBA player and member of the University of Michigan's legendary "Fab 5" squad. Outside the leafy campus of Jalen Rose Leadership Academy High School, parents wait for their children to emerge as a handful of students play on the school's clay basketball court.

    Former Wisconsin sheriff David Clarke, an African-American who criticized the Black Lives Mater movement and was previously under consideration for a position with the Trump administration, has joined a super political action committee that backs the president, officials said on Tuesday. Clarke, 61, will serve as spokesman and senior advisor for America First Action, his office and the political action committee said in two separate statements. “I will help make sure we elect the candidates who will do what they promise in support of President Trump’s agenda,” Clarke said in a statement from his office.

    The Political Insider ^ | 17 August 2017
    If you didn’t see it, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice from the Bush Administration went on Fox News to promote her new book: “Democracy: Stories from the Long Road to Freedom.” After what happened in Charlottesville, the topic is especially timely, which is why Fox and Friends host Brian Kilmeade immediately asked her an important question: “I want to talk about where your book starts, and that’s our Constitution. As an African-American woman, do you see yourself in this Constitution? Do you think that, when we look at nine of our first twelve presidents as slave owners, should we...

    ... As a Catholic commentator and pro-life advocate, I asked Evangelist Alveda C. King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and a pro-life leader (she serves as director of Civil Rights for the Unborn, the African-American outreach for Priests for Life and Gospel of Life Ministries), if she hopes Mr. Trump will be a pro-life president. Evangelist King graciously responded as follows: ‘I pray that all polar opposites learn to Agape Love, live and work together as brothers and sisters—or perish as fools. While I voted for Mr. Trump, my confidence remains in God, for life, liberty and the...

    It’s finally happened. Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) has smacked a Twitter troll into last week. In response to being called a “house n***a,” a disparaging term routinely used by the left to mock black conservatives, Scott fired back with a one-word response. Ouch. The racially insensitive tweet was ultimately deleted — and then the account was too. Some of the Twitter reactions are gold snip As the first black Republican senator since Reconstruction, Scott has had to put up with more than his fair share of racial jabs from his liberal critics. Clearly, he's figured out how to handle it...

    I know, I know. January 11 is very early to declare something as the "_____ of the year." But trust me on this.First, some background information. Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) is the only African-American Republican member of the Senate. He has also publicly supported Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) for attorney general. William Smith, an African American who formerly served as Sessions' counsel on the Senate Judiciary Committee, also has gone on the record to defend his former employer from accusations of racism.Naturally, "tolerant" liberals didn't take this very well. In a now-deleted tweet aimed at Scott and Smith, Twitter user...

    A Detroit, Michigan radio host has been pulled from local airwaves for supporting GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump after the New York business mogul visited the area on the campaign trail. Wayne Bradley, a black Trump supporter, took to Facebook to say that he was put on "hiatus" after Trump visited Detroit, saying he has "not been allowed back on the air since." When The American Mirror contacted the Detroit radio station, a representative said, "He's no longer on the air," after being asked about Bradley. Asked why that was, the station representative told The American Mirror "I really don't...

    Any member of an organization that truly cares about the group will not hesitate to hold the leadership accountable for the group’s actions, if they deem them to be inconsistent with the mission of the group. This is because they want to see the group succeed in fulfilling its mission. Many in the Republican Party have criticized Trump’s campaign, not because they want Trump to win, but because “they” don’t want to lose. They don’t want to lose their “power.” They want to be re-elected to their various congressional and gubernatorial offices strictly for the sake of having power, not...

    DENVER – Darryl Glenn emerged as the winner Tuesday following a divisive and chaotic five-man Republican U.S. Senate race that observers saw as uncertain to the last minute. Glenn will now turn his attention to incumbent Democrat Michael Bennet, who has received more than $7.6 million in individual contributions and has more than $5.7 million in the bank, after already purchasing significant television advertising in recent months. Glenn, an El Paso County commissioner, earned 37 percent of the vote as of 8:30 p.m. He was followed by Jack Graham with 25 percent, Robert Blaha with 16 percent, Jon Keyser with...
