Revisionist Black History Month
Bob Parks: Black & Right ^ | 2/2/09 | Bob Parks

Posted on 02/02/2009 6:41:17 AM PST by bocopar

This whopper deserves all the attention it can get. Again, it shows the ignorance and contempt of the electorate liberals depend on.

Even TODAY on the Democrats.org website...

Democrats are unwavering in our support of equal opportunity for all Americans. That's why we’ve worked to pass every one of our nation’s Civil Rights laws, and every law that protects workers. Most recently, Democrats stood together to reauthorize the Voting Rights Act.

On every civil rights issue, Democrats have led the fight. We support vigorous enforcement of existing laws, and remain committed to protecting fundamental civil rights in America.

This is the kind of BS spewed by Democrats on a daily basis, and unfortunately the media and other so-called watchdogs are so apparently ignorant of American history, Democrats continue to LIE through their teeth to their constituents, and via academia, to our kids. Despite the truth being out there for years, it's probably not going to explode until some big shot news anchor gives us an "explosive expose" bringing us all those facts first, so he/she can proudly receive a Pulitzer...

The Democrat party has done more to destroy the black family in America than the KKK ever could have hoped.

Okay, I’ve got a question. If MLK,Jr’s birthday is in January and celebrated in January as a federal holiday, then why isn’t Black History Month in January? Presidents Lincoln and Washington are celebrated in February on President’s Day but Black History Month overshadows such reverence to our past presidents.

There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs—partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs…

There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who do not want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public.

-Booker T. Washington

“On every civil rights issue, Democrats have led the fight.”

Except for the 120 years they were for slavery, segregation, and Jim Crow. Wait, I left out lynching.

Well, I know the army’s “equal opportunity” program isn’t equal. Everybody gets a month except white males. And if we complain about it we are labeled racist. I myself was accused of trying to organize a “white rally” on one base I was at.

Franklin Roosevelt would not endorse a Federal anti-lynching law because he was afraid he would lose the support of Southern Democrats.

Too bad America has to go thru two months of this madness. First of all, Martin Luther King, Jr., Day should have been called Civil Rights Day . . . much more appropriate to appreciate the struggle that African Americans went through in our history. To give the month basically to honoring a guy with a rather shady background (close ties to communists, plaguerizing his college thesis, marital infidelity, etc.) seems just plain wrong.

And then to put America through a month of highly suspect, poorly researched, and deliberately slanted history is just terrible.

It’s been estimated that no more than 675,000 “Negroes” were brought to the U.S. against their will to the slave trade. The Civil War saw approximately 660,000 Caucasians die, almost one-for-one, to resolve that matter. That point WILL NOT BE BROUGHT UP during this month’s orgy of White Guilt.

Thank you for your service to this wonderful land we call home. Too often, we take it for granted. So, thank you. Prayer heavenward for your safety.

As to your comment, sure seems like “what’s wrong is right and what’s right is wrong...hmm?” sigh.

“who knows what s**t will be peddled
for truth on this network.

So you listen to me. Listen to me.

Televisión is not the truth. Televisión’s
a goddamn**ed amusement park.

Televisión is a circus, a carnival,

a travelling troupe of acrobats,
storytellers, dancers, singers, jugglers,

sideshow freaks, lion tamers
and football players.

We’re in the boredom-killing business.

So if you want the truth, go to God.

Go to your gurus. Go to yourselves.

Because that’s the only place
you’re ever going to find any real truth.

But, man, you’re never gonna
get any truth from us.

We’ll tell you anything you wanna hear.
We lie like hell.

We’ll tell you that Kojak
always gets the killer,

and that nobody ever gets cancer
in Archie Bunker’s house.

However much trouble the hero is in,
don’t worry. Look at your watch.

At the end of the hour he’s going to win.
We’ll tell you any s**t you want to hear.

We deal in illusions, man.
None of it is true.

But you people sit there,
day after day, night after night,

all ages, colours, creeds.
We’re all you know. You’re beginning
to believe the illusions we’re spinning.

You’re beginning to think the tube
is reality and your lives are unreal.
You do whatever the tube tells you.

You dress like the tube,
eat like the tube,

raise your children like the tube,
think like the tube.

This is mass madness, you maniacs.

In God’s name, you people are
the real thing! We are the illusión!

So turn off your televisión sets.
Turn them off now.

Turn them off right now!
Turn them off and leave them off.

Turn them off right in the middle
of the sentence I’m speaking now.

Turn them off.”

Peter Finch as Howard Beal in ‘Network’ 1976-77

AND the civil rights act that finally passed in ‘64, AFTER dim-0s killed the one brought by Republicans in ‘57. If not for that one making the dim-0s know that Republicans WOULD someday get one passed, the ‘64 act would not have happened.

It should be “Black History Minute” in full recognition of the black contribution to western civilization.

You can disabuse yourself of that notion right away.

They don't award Pulitzers for exposing the left.

On every civil rights issue, Democrats have led the fight.

We have always been at war with Eastasia.
