I found a shocking old family picture

Posted on 08/22/2012 4:33:11 PM PDT by MNDude

After my grandparents passed away, I've inherited thousands of old family slides and have been sorting through them and have been getting them converted to digital format.

Many of the pictures, of course include those of my mother, and her younger sister (my aunt) "Liz".

Aunt Liz is a prime and proper wealthy liberal elitist in her mid sixties and belongs to the well connected limousine liberal circles. One of her daughters joined the green peace and another became an environmental lawyer.

In conversation, she is not shy to voice her opposition to what she considers "hateful homophobia" or racism by republicans. I guess just try to picture Hilary Clinton.

Well...while going through these old photos, I came across a picture of my aunt at a Halloween party during her college years. I could NOT believe my eyes. My politically correct aunt Liz's face was painted black with exaggerated features. She was dressed up as an African American (or negro in those days I guess)with a great big grin on her face!

She and her one daughters are often posting nasty things about conservatives on FaceBook. It's very tempting to post her picture and tag her, although I guess I'd might get unfriended.

She wanted to be black way back then. She probably hates whites and is therefore a racist.

It's only racism when a Conservative does something like that. It is um, let me think, oh “immaturity” or better yet “an evolving paradigm” when a pinko does it. :-)

Oh, and that’s the thing I’ve learned about liberals thought the years. They ALWAYS have disdain for the very people they claim to ‘help’.

I was once at a dinner party in the UK with the usual, garden variety socialist and communist academics. They made fun of the disabled. No, I’m not kidding. My mouth flew open. I tell ya’....once the wine starts to flow....they drop their masks.

I’ve long believed that the racial hyper-sensitivity of many liberals - particularly older liberals - is the result of guilt over racist feelings and actions in their youth and young adulthoods.

They believe (perhaps subconsiously) that they can atone for past sins by becoming pious.

Like converts to some religion, they are the most zealous practitioners of their faith.

I’d have it scanned in and ready to go. The next time she post a screed about conservatives or Republicans hating blacks, wanting to deny them the vote, wearing sheets, blah blah...

...simply post it with her name and the year (if you have it, perhaps use ‘circa’) in response and no more.

Why would you get "unfriended"?

Although I have never painted my face for any reason, I would greatly appreciate a blast from my past!

But then again I'm a hard core VRW conservative and proud of my past!

I wouldn’t post it without first contacting her and explaining to her why you want to post it i.e. to show what a hypocrite she is. Just make sure you do not have any hypocrisy yourself.

First I would buy a website..reflecting her name like

www .AuntJanedoe.com

Upload the photo as background.

Then post the picture with a link to the website on her favorite social media.

Send me a link.

Interesting thread. I can offer no significant suggestion that is worthy of repeating. Why step on toes of relatives unless they have purposely stepped on yours, even if they hold no carrot of possible inheritance?

I don’t look at people through the lens of politics, but instead their character. Character is about .....well clueless people don’t have a clue about character and politicians generally don’t have any character. They have ambition and the desire to use others for their own advancement and that of their cronies.

If you post it, you can always play the dumb card.

“What? What’s the matter? Oh, come on! This was years ago, no one knows it is you. What? Oh, come ON! Everyone who knows you knows you aren’t a racist...”

And then tag in all her dem friends.

If she's a hyper-self-righteous Lefty, she will figure out a way to get you in trouble over it. Starting by complaining to Facebook about you posting "racist" pics (without mentioning that it's HER in the pic).

This doesn't mean that you can't email it to all the family and friends via regular email with a "look at this vintage picture of Aunt ____!"

Imagine how shocked I was when my Father took me to my GGGGF grave and he was a Yankee veteran of the Civil War headstone. Yea, my ancestor was a slave owning Yankee cavalryman from Tennessee that fought the CW wearing a blue coat. History has a way of bending our preconceived notions of what should be.

That's because the war was not about slavery. Only the reconstructed version that has brain washed everyone perpetuates the myth that it was.

Do it. But be smart about it. What you really need here is plausible deniability. Which is what will prevent you from being defriended (which will also allow you to see any responses from her friends)

So, here’s what you do. Dig out 2 or 3 other pictures from the stash and post all of them. Then claim that it was really just an “oops” and you meant to send that one to her privately. Apologize profusely, offer to take it down the next chance you get (which really means leave it up several days).

Why step on toes of relatives unless they have purposely stepped on yours...

Nearly every leftist liberal HAS stepped on numerous toes in and outside their families, it is their nature, like the scorpion, they sting everyone, they can't help themselves.

They are deserving.

The whine that results from getting some of what they dish out is a sound to behold.

And, you have a statistical duty to determine if they are ignorant or stupid.

Uncool to do anything on line. You can cherish your treasure in private or show it to family members along with the other stuff you found, but there’s no reason to get cruel and go public with it.

If your aunt is in her mid 60s then the blackface event occurred
during the 1960s. Remember political correctness was not so
much of an issue in those days. The appropriate use of this photo
would be in the area of pointing out context to your aunt. For ex-
ample, the next time auntie points out some percieved conserva-
tive historic transgression it would totally befuddle her to be con-
fronted with her own history by producing the photo.
