“We control life, Winston, at all its levels. You are imagining that there is something called human nature which will be outraged by what we do and will turn against us. But we create human nature. Men are infinitely malleable.” 1984 by George Orwell.
“Do not hate your brother in your heart.” Leviticus 19:17
“Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:32
I will present the truth and facts to you. Not white truth, not black truth, not green truth. Just the truth. If I discover an error by myself or others, I will correct it.
There are no white people or black people. Hold your hand next to a white sheet and black sheet of paper. There is only one race of people, the human race. Some of my best friends have skin color that is darker or lighter than my own. I am in their homes, they are in mine. Some of these people have spent days to a year in my home.
Slavery is a great evil. It is not a white skinned or black
skinned issue. Slavery, racism and bigotry are about taking
advantage of other people. This can become widespread due to conquest, laws and ignorance.
Slavery was wrong when light skinned people owned darker skinned people in America.
Slavery was wrong when American Indians owned darker skinned people in America.
Slavery was wrong when dark skinned people owned dark skinned people in America.
Slavery was wrong when Africans sold and owned dark skinned people in Africa.
Slavery was wrong when Vikings sold and owned people in Europe.
Slavery was wrong when Romans sold and owned people in Europe, Asia, Middle East and Africa.
Slavery was wrong when Egyptians sold and owned people in the Middle East and Africa.
Slavery was wrong when Middle Easterners sold and owned people in the Middle East and Africa.
Slavery was wrong when ancient Europeans sold and owned people in Europe.
Slavery was wrong when ancient peoples of the Americas sold and owned people.
Slavery has not existed in the United States for well over a hundred years. Slavery did not begin here. It was too slow in being eradicated but it was ended. George Washington and Abraham Lincoln grew up in an era of slavery, racism and bigotry. The information they were “programmed” with led them to believe that blacks were inferior. They were products of their environment. Despite the misinformation they were given, they slowly came to the realization that what they had believed about blacks was wrong.
This is one of the reasons that what pastor Jeremiah Wright
is preaching is important. Most importantly, he is enfluencing
his parishioners, especially the children. He has also had an
impact on Barack Obama, who is running for president of the US. This is not a casual relationship. Jeremiah Wright has been consistently referred to as a mentor to Barack Obama. Don’t even begin to question the above. I am very well educated and studied quite a bit of history.
Next to statements regarding entitlement and what the US government owes it’s citizens. What the federal government is responsible for is quite simple. Here are the primary responsibilities: Defense, law legislation, Supreme Court decisions, federal banking and interstate commerce. The President of the United States has the primary job of Commander in Chief. Once again national defense.
Accountability is lacking in modern day society. Why do modern day Americans have a sense of entitlement. That is, the government owes them affordable housing, free health care, educations, etc. There are three main reasons for this. The modern day Democratic Party that get votes by promising hand outs from the government,
demagogues that gain from manipulating the masses and human greed.
Here is a good example of this lack of accountability from a
recent post on this blog:
“While it is clear that a disproportionate number of African Americans are tortured by inadequate health care; poor housing, inadequate educations, abusive criminal justice, unemployment and high crime, much of this today is because they live in poverty. And in the global capitalism of today these conditions now exist for countless numbers of other Americans, white, Asian, Latino and others.”
The word torture is used again. This is a common ploy of the liberal left. Once again, there is a lack of personal accountability. The reason many of these people are in poverty is due to a lack of personal accountability and the notion that they are owed everything. Much of this comes from the modern day Democrats and demagogues.
Just look around at all the people that come to the US knowing full well of the opportunity here. All they have to do is work hard and they do, and often turn their lives around in one generation.
One of the other great lies being told is about George W Bush
and the Iraq War. George Bush did not lie about the Iraq War. There are two posts on this blog concerning the tone of the country and the situation in Iraq prior to the war. 10 quotes were provided about Iraq and Saddam Hussein, yet people have short memories and many have an agenda of propagating lies. All of the quotes came from the Clinton Administration and substantiate what George W Bush acted upon.
Lies and diversions. These are the hallmark of the liberal left.
Barack Obama’s speech about racism was a diversion. Yes, it was brilliant and eloquent, but so was Adolf Hitler. The German people wanted change. Change is not always good. Some people posting on this blog are attempting diversions as well. They speak of this white pastor and that white pastor. This is once again a diversion and rationalization. Everyone is accountable for their own actions. Some of these pastors said some really stupid things. However, Jeremiah Wright is spewing racist hate, anti semitism and hate for America. When I hear these other pastors spewing this level
of hate and mentoring a presidential candidate for 20 years, then I will redirect my energies.
So, why am I and many others focusing attention on Barack Obama, Jeremiah Wright and others they associated with. Many red flags were raised by the hate speeches of pastor Wright, his mentoring of Barack Obama for 20 years, ties to Saddam Hussein, other suspicious middle eastern and African ties and ties to criminal elements. There were red flags in Germany prior to the rise of Adolf Hitler. The people chose to ignore them. They were swept up in the euphoria of the moment with a promise of change. Even though then, as now, words of racism, anti semitism and hate were being used,
it was somebody else that was responsible for their problems. This is too important to characterize as a blacks versus whites issue. We are all Americans and we need to make an informed decision.
