  • Democrats on civil rights: Bullet or bribe? (...history of discrimination, dependency)

    Booker T. Washington In 1857, the Supreme Court, with seven of the nine justices being Democrat, decided that Dred Scott was not a citizen, but property. Chief Justice Roger Taney, appointed by Democrat President Andrew Jackson, wrote that slaves were “so far inferior … that the Negro might justly and lawfully be reduced to slavery for their own benefit.” After the Civil War, the 13th Amendment was adopted Dec. 6, 1865, abolishing slavery in America. Once Southern Democrats were forced to free their slaves, they attempted to effectively re-enslave them by passing “Black Codes” and “Jim Crow Laws” which...

    The current Sheriff is Scott Israel; he was elected to office in November 2012. As Sheriff, Israel has made it a point to reach out to diverse crowds, including those who could be considered enemies of the U.S. and her allies. Broward Sheriff Scott Israel’s 2015 radical Muslim tour began this past January, when he posed for photos with Sofian Abdelaziz Zakkout and a member of Zakkout’s Miami-based AMANA group at a local mosque. Zakkout is a big supporter of Hamas. On his Facebook page, one can find Hamas logos and photos of Hamas militants and leaders, including Hamas founders Ahmed Yassin and...
  • HISTORICAL IGNORANCE II: Forgotten facts about Lincoln, slavery and the Civil War

    FrontPage Mag ^ | 07/22/2015 | Prof. Walter Williams
    We call the war of 1861 the Civil War. But is that right? A civil war is a struggle between two or more entities trying to take over the central government. Confederate President Jefferson Davis no more sought to take over Washington, D.C., than George Washington sought to take over London in 1776. Both wars, those of 1776 and 1861, were wars of independence. Such a recognition does not require one to sanction the horrors of slavery. We might ask, How much of the war was about slavery? Was President Abraham Lincoln really for outlawing slavery? Let's look at his...

    Just south of Nashville, Tennessee, along Interstate 65, there sits a statue of Nathan Bedford Forrest riding on horseback, surrounded by Confederate battle flags. For those with little more than a passing interest in American history, Forrest may be only known to you as the person after whom Forrest Gump was named in the movie. Others will know that he was a Confederate general and the first Grand Wizard of the KKK. It’s been sitting there on private land since 1998, but given recent events you can imagine that it’s become the target of renewed political interest. The Metro...

The KKK rally in support of the Confederate flag came a week and a day after the flag was removed from outside the Capitol building. "The Confederate flag does not represent hate. A lot of Americans died for that flag," one...

As Robert Putnam recently made clear with "Our Kids”", the real threat to the fabric of American society may be the growing class divide and indeed, the post-crisis monetary policies that have served to exacerbate the disparity between the rich and everyone else have a polarizing effect, as Main Street watches helplessly while the very same bankers who took taxpayer money in 2008 become billionaires on the back of the Fed’s printing press. And while it might very well be that America’s future is...

    A mayor in Washington state says he won’t resign after he called First Lady Michelle Obama “gorilla face,” insisting that would mean he’s admitting he’s racist. Airway Heights Mayor Patrick Rushing confirmed to KHQ-6, NBC’s Spokane affiliate, that he indeed did make the offensive statement on his Facebook page, but brushed it off as playful banter between he and his friends. “Gorilla face Michelle, can’t disagree with that,” Rushing wrote. “The woman is not attractive except to monkey man Barack. Check out them ears. LOL.” He’s tried to brush it off as “playful back and forth banter that my friends...

Louie Gohmert took to the House floor to deliver an impassioned speech about history, with a lesson on hypocrisy, reminding the nation and those on the left the rabbit hole of removing all things perceived as racist – like the Confederate flag – is a deep one that leads right to the Democratic Party. The context of Gohmert’s remarks was the nationwide condemnation of the Confederate flag, leading to a congressional attempt to boot the banner from some federally managed properties. Gohmert first reminded the cause of the shooting at the Charleston, South Carolina, church that left nine dead...

In fact, toward the end of his life, General Forrest would have likely sought to exterminate those who would kill blacks in his name, or for his "cause," like Roof.

Likewise, USA Today reported earlier this week that the KKK left the following message on its answering machine: “We will be at the statehouse in Columbia, S.C., standing up for our Confederate history and all the southerners who fought and died against federal tyranny.”...

A website hosting the document, seemingly written by Roof, 21, not long before the killings at the Emanuel AME Church emerged Saturday, and said he had 'no choice' but to carry out the massacre. On the site, he pinpoints Charleston, South Carolina, as his target because of its high proportion of blacks, bemoans that there is 'no real KKK' to help him, and claims he has 'no choice' but to act.

    Last month marked the 40th anniversary of the fall of Saigon, a moment vividly encapsulated by the frenzied scene of South Vietnamese desperately trying to reach the last helicopter on the roof of the American embassy. April was also the 150th anniversary of the surrender at Appomattox, when Robert E. Lee capitulated to Ulysses S. Grant, bringing the bloodiest fighting of the Civil War to an end.The two episodes seemingly have little to do with each other. But each, in its way, illustrates one of the bleakly recurring themes of US military history: When America's armed forces prematurely abandon the...

    It seems my mission here is to bring to your attention unfamiliar and unfashionable truths about American history. Let me give you another one. The American West, the frontier, was NOT conquered and settled by a “Nation of Immigrants.” George Washington was already the fifth generation of his family in Virginia, as were most of his neighbours. There was a wave of Scots-Irish immigration before the Revolution. Thereafter, for almost a century, there was a trickle of immigrants but no wave. Not until the late 1840s, with the Irish potato famine and the Continental revolutions of 1848, was there another...

Of course, the answer is that no one knew. That is because they aren’t. Since there are not any Klansmen at UNC, a group called the Real Silent Sam Coalition is focusing on a building, Saunders Hall, which was named after a former Klansman. Decades ago, UNC named its Department of History building after Saunders, not...

    Jefferson, a member of the gentry of Old Virginia, was always regarded as one of the best and brightest of his generation, a gentleman of the finest intellect, taste, and manners. Although Jefferson loved and was loyal to the Union, he was a Virginian first and an American second; Virginia, Jefferson avowed, was his “country.” This order of allegiance – State over Union, or “Society” over “the State” – was firmly rooted in the Old South. Accordingly, in the emerging conflict between the North and the South, Jefferson sided with his own country. “It is true that we are completely...

The film is as confounding as ever, both brilliant and repugnant. Groundbreaking in its use of innovative cinematic techniques, it remains tainted by its brazen racism. The Birth of a Nation was the creation of DW Griffith, who had tried his hand as an actor and playwright but whose real genius lay in film-making. Nothing on its scale had even been attempted before.

In our own party, slavery and Jim Crow all too often were justified in the Democratic platform. Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest, possibly the first grand dragon of the Ku Klux Klan, spoke at the 1868 Democratic National Convention. Most Klansmen were Democrats. The party refused to condemn the Klan as late as its 1924 convention, a gathering wags called “the Klanbake.” Woodrow Wilson, a...

Wade—of a moment that liberals will never dare acknowledge: a 1926 speech to the KKK by one of their most revered ideological darlings, Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger. Unlike Scalise, Sanger did not unwittingly speak to a group with a link (direct or indirect) to the KKK through a member. No, Margaret knowingly went directly to the Real McCoy—straight to the dragon’s mouth. In May 1926, a hopeful spring day,...

    We are in the midst of a war on rape. From American campuses to British courthouses, from newspaper op-ed pages to the weird world of online petitions, ‘zero tolerance’ of rape has been declared. And who could possibly be against it? No one is ‘pro-rape’. So surely everyone will cheer a war on rape. Not so fast. Wars on rape have been declared before, and often for deeply reactionary reasons, having the effect of harming society rather than helping women. Consider the ‘war on rape’ declared in America’s Deep South in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, when the KKK...

    I don’t have to drive too far from my home to find real racists.  Within an hour’s drive, I can find true white-sheet-wearing KKK members, and I can find Black Panthers.  Their mutual, seething hatred of each other based on skin color would, in a simple physics equation, cancel each other out.  But in matters of race, these groups simply feed one another’s fire, and build each other up, in an unwinnable, atrocious war. Being white, and brought up in New Hampshire, I never saw race relations in any forum other than one-on-one.  There were three black kids in my...

    How Martha Coakley sent a guy to prison using a case won by the KKK in 1875. ===================================================== Martha Coakley and the KKK, strange bedfellows. Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley has aspired to higher office in Massachusetts for years. Scott Brown defeated her and the “machine” in a closely contested U.S. Senate race in 2010 but that didn’t deter her, she’s back again, this time running for Governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. If ever there were a candidate that illustrates blind faith voting, Mar - tha would be it. The brand name Democrats including Hillary Clin - ton and...

    As if it weren’t enough of a burden for the good people of Ferguson that hundreds of outside agitators have descended upon the town, now there is one more agitating, outsider group threatening violence in the streets of the beautiful Missouri town. The Ku Klux Klan. As if Al Sharpton and other democrat race baiters, the Black Panthers, and other outsider groups needed more of an excuse to turn the town into an actual war zone, the KKK has pushed out a flier that promises to “defend” the people of Ferguson with deadly force if necessary, According to ViceNews:

    The head of Missouri's most visible KKK group claims his "Klanline" is being flooded with calls from prospective recruits angered by the continuing protests in Ferguson. "Missouri is definitely on fire right now," says Frank Ancona, the imperial wizard of the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. In the past the group made headlines by passing out fliers for a KKK neighborhood watch program, but Ancona tells Daily RFT the Ferguson protests are attracting a new wave hopeful hood-wearers. He says he's inducted 50 new members to the group's Missouri chapter this month, and numbers are up in...

    The white supremacist organisation, 'Ku Klux Klan', infamous for racism and violence, is reportedly rebranding itself and opening its doors – quite surprisingly – to other members of the society such as Jews, Blacks, Hispanics and gays. ..... The white supremacist group 'Ku Klux Klan' is reportedly rebranding to including jews, black people and gays.... The move reportedly comes after John Abarr, a KKK member from Great Falls in Montana, had a discussion with the National Association for the Advancement of Coloured People (NCAAP), although it is not exactly clear what they talked about.

    Link to source of the KKK picture The Ku Klux Klan in a parade in Anaheim, California, in 1924, the same year California's CCW law passed, with the purpose of disarming Latino and Chinese legal residents. California's CCW system is still regulated under this law. The following article appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle on July 15th, 1923, page 3, column 1. It mentions that California's CCW (Concealed Carry Weapon) law was passed specifically to prevent Chinese, Latinos and legal immigrants (non-naturalized permanent residents) from being armed. Note that this was from a time in California in which Hispanics...

    A string of leaks to the media protecting Darren Wilson are part of a very big problem. Here's the sordid history. On those rare occasions when it makes a real effort to grapple with the raw brutality of Jim Crow, the American mainstream media usually returns to a particular set of images that, by their very nature, are jarring and extraordinary: the burning cross, the hangman’s knot, the Klansman on horseback. This isn’t a bad thing; you can’t understand Jim Crow without understanding the significance of the Klan, for example. But it’s not an entirely good one, either. The problem...

A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered."
