SLAVERY AND IMMIGRATION
Wednesday there was a “Reparations” hearing in Congress to discuss a payback system for African Americans whose ancestors were slaves. According to some Congress people, they African American descended from slaves were never able to catch up with everyone else here in the United States, therefore, they should have a handout.
Although there were those, such as Danny Glover and Te-Nihisi Coates, who argued the case for slavery reparations, the one who brought the House to chaos was Coleman Hughes, columnist for Quillete. https://clarion.causeaction.com/2019/06/19/black-democratic-writer-gets-booed-called-presumptive-by-white-liberal-rep-steve-cohen-after-opposing-reparations-in-house-hearing/
Hughes is an African American writer who finds the case for reparations insulting to “put a price” on the suffering of their ancestors. He admitted the horror of the era and told of how he was advised by many of either side not to speak a today’s hearing, yet he felt compelled to give his opinion of why reparations were not necessary.
He felt that trying to make up for the suffering of the past on the people of the present was ineffective, especially in his case as he grew up in a prosperous home and attended an Ivy League school.
This, of course, caused a riotous hally-balloo in the halls of Congress as no one is supposed to have an opposing opinion of a liberal idea.
Fried chicken eating, Democratic Representative and chairman of the hearing, Steven Cohen, called repeatedly for order and allowed that “even if he was presumptive, he still had a right to speak.”
(Cohen probably meant presumptuous, too much chicken in his mouth messed his vocabulary up. Could be that maligning him as he defended him confused the crowd.)
The treatment of this young man is the exact definition of racism. How dare a man of color chastise those who were trying to marginalize all people of color?
Slavery, without rant or rhetoric, is an unforgivable sin, and an abomination.
Generally, the those that were brought to the United States were Africans that were prisoners of war or criminals who were sold by the victors of local tribes or forcibly taken from their homeland to be slaves. http://www.africaw.com/africans-did-not-sell-their-own-people-into-slavery
There were incidents of slavery or indentured servants who did trade their freedom and autonomy for passage to the New World. These individuals did indeed gamble their very lives on the hope of a better future.
“Indentured servitude was a labor system in which people paid for their passage by working for an employer for a fixed term of years. It was widely employed in the 18th century in the British colonies in North American and elsewhere. It was a way for the poor in Britain and the German states to obtain paid passage to the American colonies.” https://www.bing.com/search?q=indentured+servants&form=PRUSEN&mkt=en-us&httpsmsn=1&refig=e31e007e7e5f4894b88cd5c33f2ebb8e&sp=1&ghc=1&filters=ufn%3A%22indentured+servants%22+sid%3A%22a623096e-fa52-5453-4ceb-e3a156dc21f1%22&qs=MB&pq=indentured&sc=8-10&cvid=e31e007e7e5f4894b88cd5c33f2ebb8e
An employer was contractually bound to release the person from his or her indenture at the completion of the agreed upon term. Sometimes, this didn’t happen and the people were considered property. As the dishonest employer was deeper of pocket than the servant, the outcome was often not favorable to those who were indentured.
Another forgotten group of slaves were the Irish. The first slaves in the British colonies were white slaves from Ireland. http://www.africaresource.com/rasta/sesostris-the-great-the-egyptian-hercules/the-irish-slave-trade-forgotten-white-slaves/
King James II and Charles I led a concerted effort to enslave the Irish. It began when James II sold 30,000 Irish slaves to owners the New World. His proclamation in 1625 stated that Irish political prisoners to be sold to English settlers in the West Indies. The Irish were considered human livestock for English merchants. The initial majority of slaves in the New World were Irish slaves.
If anyone mentions slavery in conversation it is almost a given that it is a reference to African slaves, which is not entirely true.
How it is that no one ever mentions how shabbily treated the Irish were treated by the English monarchs?
The Irish weren’t treated too much better at the turn of the century when the Potato Famine forced so many to immigrate to the United States, even though “donations” to buy ships and passage for the starving people were often death traps when corrupt people were involved in the transactions. Those for whom the charity was intended, never made it to the New World.
When they did arrive, finding a job was difficult when the “Help Wanted” sign ended with “No Irish Need Apply.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-Irish_sentiment
Yet the Irish have not formed an” Irish Lives Matter” group or demanded reparations for the years their ancestors spent as slaves or second class citizens.
There were slave owners, who for reasons of conscience, manumitted their slaves. This often earned the undying ire of their neighbors. Another unfortunate part of being a freed slave was that someone could claim them as their property. Being unable to read and write, the free person had to have their manumission papers on them at all times, and be aware of those who would steal or destroy their papers.
Unless Congress is willing to reimburse all of the above types of slavery and their descendants this is yet another liberal tempest in a teapot, and for some, an insult to those who prospered in spite of the odds against them.
Skilled politicians can propagandize people to accept their own slavery, and even demand
more. Hitler did it with apparent ease. Unorganized push back is ineffective and if dangerous to
the state and the state feels threatened, it will turn tyrannical to save itself. Keep your guns.
The unpleasantness now growing on the streets of Paris, reflect a tax push back by a once
moribund French population for whom any more compliance has hit a wall. They have just about
had all the socialist crap they can take. French President Macrons casual increase in fuel taxes,
in support of fighting global warming, blew up in his face and he’s backed down. The riots on the
streets of Paris are predictable precursors to the unloading of a whole host of other grievances
against European socialist engineering that has seduced the people to accept an ideology foreign
to their human nature, their culture and their best interests. Global socialism is starting to
unravel. Even in their anger, the French rioters are calling out “Trump, Trump, Trump.” Well?
The toad, Macron is part of the New World Order crowd that demands Eastern European
countries, who are adamantly refusing to participate, accept their fair share of Islamic migrants
for the good of European economic production. The Europeans have been propagandized into
accepting these hostile foreign workers because of the low birthrates in host countries. That
problem, like here in America, is caused by the enacted Socialists schemes for selected
population control through infanticide (abortion), doctor-assisted suicides and, for the elderly,
denial of medical services after a certain age.
People understand that when those Islamic rascals move into their host countries they
immediately set about demanding, by threats and violence, that host governments accept their
demands for Shariah Laws. They create “no-go zones” and also expect the passive acceptance
of the Islamization of that country by demanding hate crime laws to punish infidels who refuse to
comply with their submission to Islamic enslavement. Make no mistake, Islam is not your friend.
Statistics now show that most of these people don’t work but live off the social welfare programs
of the host country, paid for by the taxpayers, while they engage in the Islamic subversion of the
host populations. I think the French people have about had all they can stand of that too.
It’s working like that in America too. Consider those millennial age students who are turning
toward Democrat socialism espoused by the likes of Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren
among others. Sanders and Warren are from the old school of American socialists that practiced
subversion by stealth, through the implementation of “Common Core” educational programs, the
seating of Jurists who are willing to impose feel good laws that are unconstitutional, and through
the wholesale attempts to impose government mandated healthcare.
To prevent the citizens from noticing what the “elites” are doing, it’s necessary for them to
distract us with nonsense. The Leftist propaganda machine, the Main Stream Media, is in
business to do just that. Fretting over natural occurrences and trifles while the Deep State
continues its negative narrative to implicate President Trump in wrongdoing while exculpating
the real source of evil, Hillary Clinton and her cabal of potential codefendants.
Americans who see this, instinctively understand that if this phony Mueller Investigation works to
remove President Trump from office upon a manufactured pretense, but fails to pursue the
Clintons/Obama crime syndicate, then the danger exists that the American people just might
take a note from the brave French standing up to the EU’s Socialist machine that is killing them,
and do the same. That’s why they want our guns.
I have very little faith in our political party’s or their politicians, except for the President, to do the
right thing. Americans, enough of them to make Donald Trump the President, will absolutely not
countenance his removal by the “Deep State” criminals trying to protect themselves by removing
Here, the law of unintended consequences of their legislations will be noticeable. To make a law
that’s is contrary to the best interests of America, then make another law to repair the damage,
is to create the impression they are doing something worthy. This too will not go unnoticed
The world, especially Europe and the United States, are on the cusp of the greatest effort by the
New World Order crowd of international bankers and political leaders, to steal our liberties and
our production for no good purpose at all save to satisfy a “elites” desire to hold power over all.
Apart from their open borders initiatives that expects all countries (especially America) to accept
the entry of any and all immigrants without exception, their next step will be the coming
economic crisis for which Trump will be blamed.
To fix that ‘false flag’ crisis they will encourage the acceptance of their phony “cryptocurrency”
that, once accepted, will become the valueless currency of the New World Order. We will soon
become a cashless society and when that happens, our enslavement will be complete. Think
about that! It could be just around the corner.
Remember, Liberty is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (10Dec18)
