Glenn Beck and the Innocence of Slavery in America

05 Oct

This is unbelievable!

Glenn Beck denies the history of slavery in America.

Let me paint you a picture here, Mr. Beck – here is a picture of two slave children for sale –

Slave Photo

This picture came from an estate sale in Charlotte, North Carolina, and was accompanied by a document detailing the sale of  “John” for $1,150 in 1854. An estimated 12 million slaves died in the “Middle Passage” on the way to the Americas…

Hardly an innocent business.

Slavery existed in Europe and the Americas for nearly 200 years before the English Colonies which became the United States were founded. The English, the Spanish, the Dutch, the Portuguese, and virtually all seagoing European powers participated in that trade – starting in the 1400’s. Even Queen Elizabeth participaed and profited frm the trade:

English participation in the lucrative slave trade seems to have begun when John Hawkins hijacked a Portuguese ship carrying Africans to Brazil in 1562. Hawkins traded the slaves at Hispaniola for ginger, pearls and sugar, making a huge profit which could not be ignored by his countrymen. One year later, Hawking sold a cargo of Black slaves in Hispaniola and the floodgates were opened. Though Queen Elizabeth spoke out against the dark business, she later took shares in Hawkins” ventures, even lending him one of her ships in the enterprise that pitted her adventurous navigators against those of Spain, Portugal, and the Netherlands (It was Hawkins who introduced tobacco into England in 1565).

Somebody needs to put Mr. Beck back on his anti-psychotic medication.

    And guess who is talking to:

    WASHINGTON – Desperate for jobs and cool toward President Barack Obama, working-class whites are flocking to Republicans, turning a group long wary of Democrats into an even bigger impediment to the party’s drive to keep control of Congress.

    An Associated Press-GfK poll shows whites without four-year college degrees preferring GOP candidates by twice the margin of the last two elections, when Democrats made significant gains in the House and Senate. The poll, conducted last month, found this group favoring GOP hopefuls 58 percent to 36 percent — a whopping 22 percentage-point gap.

      Expected. That group has always been manipulable – the best example of which was getting them to die for slavery during the Civil War. By pushing the racial buttons they can be manipulated any way you like… Including walking off a cliff like lemmings.

      what does that have to do with the price of tea in China?

      We’re talkin about a man who seems to think he knows EVERYTHING about the black race lately and he doesnt. This has nothing to do with politcs, dude.

      This is one of the stupidest things he could say. There is nothing innocent about slavery dude.

      And you just outted yourself as a possible racist and for sure an Anti Obamanite.

    My aceboon posterchild for angry pseudo-scientific racism deposited this link yesterday afternoon – and I’ve been mining it for gems ever since. Evidently one of the “titans” in the field of “conservative” alternative reality revisionism kicked the bucket earlier this week. good riddance….,

      Yeah – The newest movement among the racial conservative types is to reinvent history to fit their narrative. It’s the final concession that their followers are cult slaves, too stupid and wrapped up in racial hate to remember their 5th Grade History class.

    All this trash about who has slaves when — utter nonsense.

    Only the South — the CSA — was FOUNDED on perpetual slavery of the black race, by the white race, according to “the great moral truth” that God ordained the white man to enslave the black.

    The Southern leaders BRAGGED about this at the time. Other nations had various kinds of slavery for various lengths of time — but ONLY the CSA did slavery RIGHT, according to Vice President Stephens.

    Other nations enslaved whites or the losers in war, or for just a generation. But the Confederacy was FOUNDED on God’s will for slavery — and the (white) world will follow our example, said Stephens. This was a scientific truth he said, like Galileo’s planets, and Harvey’s circulation system.

    If you don’t understand that the South was not “just another slave nation” you don’t know anything. No one in history, before or since, was FOUNDED on total and perpetual subjugation and torture of one race, by another race, according to biblical principles.

    See “Death of the Southern God — my blog about t his.
