1619 New York Times Garbage — The New York Times is starting a divisive propaganda push to convince Americans that our country didn’t start in 1776 with the Declaration of Independence but in 1619 “when a ship carrying enslaved Africans landed in Virginia.”
This is going to backfire. You see those 20 Africans were not chattel slaves bound for life but indentured servants much as half of the European immigrants to the colonies were. These Africans were put in bondage by other Africans. Europeans gave money to those who had put them in chains allowing them to gain their freedom after a period of labor– at least in Virginia. It wasn’t all that bad a deal for them.
One of those 20 original indentured servants was an Angolan who took the name Anthony Johnson. After Johnson served his indenture and gained his freedom, he became a successful tobacco farmer. He got an African indentured servant of his own named John Casor.
Except Johnson didn’t free Casor upon the expiration of the indenture.
So Casor got help from an English neighbor, who compelled Johnson to grant Casor’s freedom. The victory, however, was short lived. Johnson filed his own lawsuit in 1654 in Northhampton County, Va. The powers that be felt Johnson had a pretty neat idea, and ruled in his favor binding Casor to him for life.
And hence the vile evil of chattel slavery was born.
If The New York Times wants to argue that our founding father was Anthony Johnson, well, it would certainly be an interesting thing to teach during Black History Month.
The United States was founded on July 4, 1776. Almost immediately upon declaration of independence the British mandate to maintain slavery was rejected by the Northern colonies and abolition began, starting with the counties of New York that would become Vermont in 1777 and then Pennsylvania in 1780. Note this was before the Treaty of Paris was signed and the Revolution still raged.
Skin color is meaningless. Judge people by their character.
The New York Times is garbage. All decent people should ignore it.
Define Racism Truthfully, Not Politically — Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Pa1) gets props for his appearance on the just ended The Dean Malik Show on WWDB 860AM but there was a point that never made it to the table.
He said he thought the greatest issue facing the country was the tenor of political discourse.
So he goes along with calling the President a racist.
For what it’s worth, he said he didn’t think President Trump is a racist.
He’s just apparently OK with saying he uses racist language.
Congressman, if you are sincere about wanting to “tone down” discourse start condemning those who use the word “racist” as a political attack.
Insist that “racist” and “racism” be consistently and specifically defined so the evil that the word should describe is not diluted. Racism is not mere bigotry or prejudice or disagreement but a belief that certain ethnicities should have lesser or no civil liberty.
Telling an ingrate to love it or leave America is not racism — or even prejudice — regardless of the color of the skin of ingrate. Calling someone a racist for confronting an ingrate is craven and despicable. Failing to confront someone making such an accusation is cowardice.
The biggest threat, Congressman, is the division caused by identity politics. The Founding Fathers knew this hence our national motto “Out of Many One“.
Or another way of saying it and hopefully triggering the right type of people: Where we go one, we go all.
Fitzpatrick Appearing On Malik Show — Dean Malik has posted that Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Pa1)will be appearing on his show today (July 19) which airs noon on WWDB 860 AM.
Fitzpatrick was one of the few Republicans who voted to condemn President Trump’s remarks criticizing hateful anti-American statements by Democrat congresswomen.
The show is hosted by Malik and Don Beishl Fr. Also on the show will be noted journalist Stu Bykofsky, who had a long career with The Philadelphia Daily News; Stan Casacio, about his run for Montgomery County Controller; Billy Ciancaglini, the Republican candidate for Mayor of Philadelphia, and Bill Lawrence of BillLawrenceOnline.com.
Dean Malik Hosts BillLawrenceOnline — Bill Lawrence of BillLawrenceOnline will be guest of Dean Malik and Don Beishl Jr., noon, tomorrow (July 19) on WWDB 860 AM.
Also on the show will be noted journalist Stu Bykofsky, who had a long career with The Philadelphia Daily News; Stan Casacio, about his run for Montgomery County Controller; and Billy Ciancaglini, the Republican candidate for Mayor of Philadelphia.
Malik says he has invited Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick (R?-Pa1) to explain his recent vote condemning the President’s tweets as allegedly “racist” (we strongly disagree) and to discuss other issues.
“We shall see if he makes the time in his busy schedule to be on the show,” Malik said.
A podcast of the show is here. Malik’s other guests included Juanita Broaddrick. Pauline comes on at the 49:40 mark.
The Dean Malik Show airs noon Fridays on WWDB 860 AM.
Considering the behavior among Montco GOP commissioner candidates — yes Joe Gale and Jeff Salvino you are getting blamed for this too — we fear Lawrence will be returned to office.
We have not heard any prominent Republican condemn, attack or even question Lawrence but we’ve certainly heard them go after each other.
The Democrats have circled the wagons around this protege of Josh Shapiro while the Republicans have created a circular firing squad. Call it how to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory and let injustice go unpunished.
Gamaliel vs Wikipedia Correction Project — Emmy-award winning journalist Sharyl Attkisson, who had been CBS’ D.C.-based investigative journalist and a substitute anchor for CBS Evening News before falling out of the grace of the network’s leftist overseers because she dared question activities of the Obama Administration, is battling Wikipedia.
Wikipedia, she says, refuses to correct biographical information even when demonstrably shown to be false. She has started the Wikipedia Correction Project (WCP) to fix things.
She saysthe goal is to make additional information that is censored on Wikipedia available elsewhere
Fascinating to watch small-time grifters attempt to demonize/monetize @Wikipedia in the same way more successful grifters like Ann Coulter and Sarah Palin have done with the media, Gamaliel tweeted about the proven and trusted Ms. Attkisson.
By the way, another way to have fun with Wikipedia is to sign up for Dissenter and edit Wikipedia articles that way. Granted only other Dissenter users can see the edits but there are more Dissenters every day.
Anthony Buttacy Our Time Guest — John Haenn’s most recent Our Time addressed the twisted depths that those running (ruining?) public education have brought those institutions that they had been trusted to shepherd.
Anyway, John’s guest was Anthony Buttacy, the headmaster of West-Mont Christian Academy in Pottstown.
While Mr. Buttacy doesn’t address the transgender issue — which John brings up in his opening monologue — he points out that our society is suffering from a noted rejection of objective truth.
He also says the today’s students are overbooked with regard to time and that parents don’t spend as much time with them as they once did. Listen to it below. It’s an interesting conversation and he has interesting things to say.
