  • Liberals, media elite show off their masks in response to end of travel mandate: ‘KISS MY -––’ 'I don’t give a damn what some grossly unqualified Donald Trump judge said, I’m double masked and wearing goggles on this Nashville to DC flight.'

    Defiant members of the media and other liberals have responded to the recent lifting of the travel mask mandate by taking selfies of themselves wearing masks on their recent travels and insisting to social media users that they feel safer from COVID-19 this way. After U.S. District Court Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle voided the Biden administration’s travel mask mandate on Monday, there was some fear online from liberal media figures who didn’t feel safe enough going bare-faced on an airplane or Uber ride. MSNBC host Tiffany Cross posted a photo of herself on a flight wearing her black mask. Her...

    BBC ^ | 19 July 2020 | Adaobi Tricia Nwaubani
    My great-grandfather, Nwaubani Ogogo Oriaku, was what I prefer to call a businessman, from the Igbo ethnic group of south-eastern Nigeria. He dealt in a number of goods, including tobacco and palm produce. He also sold human beings. "He had agents who captured slaves from different places and brought them to him," my father told me. Nwaubani Ogogo's slaves were sold through the ports of Calabar and Bonny in the south of what is today known as Nigeria. People from ethnic groups along the coast, such as the Efik and Ijaw, usually acted as stevedores for the white merchants and...
  • How Deep Chinese Influence Pushed Australia Into Astonishing Covid Tyranny

    The Federalist ^ | NOVEMBER 22, 2021 | Carina Benton
    A compromised political elite is responding to a virus likely juiced up in a Chinese bioweapons lab by adopting scientifically unprecedented, Communist-style social controls. When Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison called last year for an investigation into the origins of COVID-19, China retaliated with tariffs. Domestically, a cohort of Beijing-friendly former ambassadors, foreign and defense ministers, and state premiers dutifully reminded the public that China’s status as Australia’s biggest trading partner makes antagonizing the regime a risky business. Beijing sycophants have recycled versions of this talking point for years, rationalizing China’s contempt for Western universal values, territorial aggrandizement, repression of...

    Mihrigul Tursun, a survivor of China’s concentration camp system, urged the National Basketball Association (NBA) in remarks to Breitbart News on Friday to condemn China’s human rights abuses. Tursun also warned star player LeBron James, one of China’s biggest business partners in the league, to distance himself from the regime “because money cannot do everything.” Tursun was participating in a march Friday organized by the East Turkistan Government in Exile in Washington, DC, the purpose of which was to demand that the administration of President Joe Biden act to protect the Uyghur people from the ongoing genocide they are enduring...

    As part of his effort to bring awareness to the vast network of Chinese slave labor camps, Enes Kanter has again addressed Nike Owner Phil Knight asking him to stop using Chinese slave labor to make Nike’s products. In a Tuesday tweet, Kanter wrote, “How about I book plane tickets for us and let’s fly to China together. We can try to visit these SLAVE labor camps, and you can see it with your own eyes.” He also invited LeBron James and Michael Jordan along on the trip.

    The Chinese Communists don’t like having their oppressive regime called out for human rights abuses and they let U.S. climate envoy John Kerry know that in no uncertain terms. ... The reason their solar panels are being sanctioned is that the Communists are engaging in unfair trading practices by deliberately selling the products at a loss to undercut the viability of the U.S. solar panel industry. The Chinese were also using slave labor to produce the panels. It’s harder to sell those solar panels because the Chinese are cheating and got caught. Should we lift the restrictions because of human...
  • 1741: Othello, Doctor Harry, and five other New York slaves

    07/18/2021 7:09:36 AM PDT · by CheshireTheCat · 8 replies ^ | July 18, 2021 | Headsman
    On this date in 1741, six slaves named Othello, Quack, Venture, Frank, Fortune, and Galloway were hanged, and a seventh, “Harry the Negro Doctor”, burned — all casualties of the ongoing investigation into the purported slave plot to torch colonial New York. A truly horrific day in the city’s history. However, as we have noted in our entry about the last prior mass execution of this affair, these July bloodbaths surprisingly turn out to be all about the court extricating itself from a potentially limitless investigation into the servile classes. With the return of the Chief Justice James De Lancey...

    The Jamaican professor Donald Harris, father of Kamala Harris wrote an article for Jamaica Globe, in which he claimed that his maternal grandmother was descended from an Irish plantation owner named Hamilton-Brown. Reuter’s fact-checkers were unable to find conclusive evidence that Harris was indeed related to Brown. In his Jamaica Global article, Harris claimed to be descended from the 19th-century planter and slave owner Hamilton Brown. He wrote: “My roots go back, within my lifetime, to my paternal grandmother Miss Chrishy (née Christiana Brown, descendant of Hamilton Brown who is on record as plantation and slave owner and founder of...

    Frontpagemagazine ^ | Jun 8, 2021 | Bill Warner
    The New York Times published The 1619 Project by Nikole Hannah-Jones that says the Revolutionary War was fought to preserve slavery. Slavery made the U.S. wealthy. The US original sin was racism. Our culture is built on racism and is an unchangeable part of our society. The 1619 Project is based on CRT, cultural Marxist critical race theory -- only white racism matters and it is systemic in the U.S. It maintains that all blacks are victims (still slaves) and all white people are privileged oppressors (still masters). So there must be monetary and socialized atonement. This theory denigrates the...

    The NBA and its players profit from China and its inhumane treatment of its citizens. Thus, when asked about China’s genocide and slave labor, members of the NBA often fold like pathetic stooges. NBA commissioner Adam Silver, promoted as the most vocal commissioner in sports, has followed his players’ lead and refused to acknowledge how hypocritical and dishonest the NBA’s relationship with China is.
  • Reparations for ancestors of slaves? The numbers don't add up. Discussions about reparations reared its ugly head again in Congress. It still doesn't make any sense

    American Thinker ^ | 03/12/2021 | Anna L. Stark
    House Resolution 40, the Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act, got underway again in mid-February. It was originally introduced in Congress by John Conyers of Michigan in 1989, then again by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas in 2019, followed by Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey, who presented a companion bill last April. Of particular contention is the claim that white Americans are responsible for the "sin of slavery" and should be made to pay, in order to adequately address and resolve 400 years of racial injustice and inequality, while contending that 5% of all...

    Cameron Village in Raleigh, a Southeastern shopping destination when it was built in the late 1940s on former Cameron family holdings, will get a new name. It will be called Village District, dropping its connection to the Cameron family, whose wealthy patriarch was one of the largest holders of enslaved people in North Carolina before the Civil War. "Reintroducing this destination as Village District aligns with the collective values of our neighbors, patrons, and merchants," Chris Widmayer, vice president of investments for Regency Centers, which owns the shopping center, said in a release Thursday. "The Village District will bring a...

    SANTA ROSA COUNTY, Fla. (WEAR) – Two men were arrested in Santa Rosa County on Wednesday for child human trafficking, deputies announced Thursday. Two children were recovered in the process. Frank Leija Moreno, 39, and Jackson Perez-Godinez, 21, are charged with human trafficking and human smuggling. They are being held in jail on no bond. The Santa Rosa County Sheriff's Office says deputies pulled over a vehicle on I-10 Wednesday for traffic violations. Moreno and Perez-Godinez were in the front seat and acting "suspicious," according to deputies. Two boys ages 14 and 17 were in the backseat. Authorities say the...

    MEXICO CITY (AP) — Archaeologists in Mexico said Tuesday they have identified a ship that carried Mayan people into virtual slavery in the 1850s, the first time such a ship has been found. The wreck of the Cuban-based paddle-wheel steamboat was found in 2017, but wasn’t identified until researchers from the National Institute of Anthropology and History checked contemporary documents and found evidence it was the ship “La Unión.” The ship had been used to take Mayas captured during an 1847-1901 rebellion known as “The War of the Castes” to work in sugarcane fields in Cuba. Slavery was illegal in...

    Who Should Pay? Who Should Get? As we all know, talk of reparations for injustice is everywhere. But here’s a headline, appearing in the British Spectator magazine, that hit home to Virgil, old Roman that he is: “Italy owes Wales reparations for the wrongs of the Roman Empire.” The author, one Lloyd Evans—an impeccable Welsh name, that—declared: Let me add my voice to the clamour on behalf of this island’s indigenous Celtic people. My family are from Llanelli in Carmarthenshire and I believe that my compatriots have an excellent case to make against the Roman Empire. Yes, Evans said he...

    CLEMSON, S.C. — The locations of more than 200 possible unmarked graves have been found in Woodland Cemetery next to Memorial Stadium on the Clemson University campus. The graves were found by ground-penetrating radar and are believed to date back more than a century, according to a release from the university. "The graves are thought to be those of enslaved people who worked from about 1830 to 1865 on John C. Calhoun’s Fort Hill Plantation and later as sharecroppers and Black laborers, including convicted individuals involved in the construction of Clemson College from 1890 to 1915," the release said.

    Dated but relevant. The father of Kamala Harris detailed how their ancestors owned slaves, an inconvenient part of her history as she has spent much of her campaign focusing on race politics. The Democrats have been up in arms about an NBC News report that detailed how Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s great-great-grandfathers owned slaves in Alabama in the 1800s. Donald Harris, a Stanford University economics professor and father of 2020 Democrat candidate, wrote about how they are descendant of an Irishman who owned a slave plantation in Jamaica in a piece titled “Reflections of a Jamaican Father.” “My roots...
