Thank Beck For 'Discovering' Black History
Bob Parks: Black & Right ^ | 5/29/10 | Bob Parks

Posted on 05/29/2010 5:59:14 AM PDT by bocopar

I've written and produced video about the liberal whitewashing of black history for years, as has the Reverend Wayne Perryman, as has Frances Rice, as has Larry Edler, as has David Barton of Wallbuilders for even providing physical documentation, as well as many others. I've also said someone in the mainstream media would 'reveal' this revised history to the nation and act as if he or she discovered it.

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…
Enter Glenn Beck.

It was a great show. As always we have a fair collection of names and links on yesterday’s TV thread for those interested in digging deeper.

I certainly din not get the impression that Beck treated this information as “Breaking News”. He presented as it is, which is “hidden news”. If he wanted to take all of the credit he would not have had his two expert guests on. It is amazing how Parks critizes Beck instead of showing his appreciation in joining in the fight. Nothing more than jealousy.

Yes, and while many of us have been speaking out on this for years, Beck acts like he’s breaking news. Shame.

BS. Beck doesn't claim he 'discovered' the history of the communist "Black Liberation" movement. But he is the one FINALLY getting it out to a large audience in some level of detail (Hannity still understands very little about it). My only regret is that he misses so many opportunities to link it even more to Obama, Wright, the Weather Underground, Communist Cuba and Obama friend and associate Bill Ayers.

"Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal".--James (Jim) Cone,
African American Religious Thought: An Anthology (Paperback)
by Cornel West (Editor), Eddie S. Glaude Jr. (Editor)

SEAN HANNITY: But Reverend Jeremiah Wright is not backing down and has not for years and in his strong stance on the teaching of black liberation theology is nothing new. He had the same things to say last spring when he appeared on "Hannity & Colmes:"

WRIGHT: If you're not going to talk about theology in context, if you're not going to talk about liberation theology that came out of the '60s, systematized black liberation theology that started with Jim Cone in 1968 and the writings of Cone and the writings of Dwight Hopkins and the writings of womynist theologians and Asian theologians and Hispanic theologians, then you can't talk about the black value system.

HANNITY: But I'm a — reverend

WRIGHT: Do you know liberation theology, sir?

Obama's Church: Gospel of Hate
Kathy Shaidle, FrontPageMag.com
Monday, April 07, 2008

In March of 2007, FOX News host Sean Hannity had engaged Obama’s pastor in a heated interview about his Church’s teachings. For many viewers, the ensuing shouting match was their first exposure to "Black Liberation Theology"...

Like the pro-communist Liberation Theology that swept Central America in the 1980s and was repeatedly condemned by Pope John Paul II, Black Liberation Theology combines warmed-over 1960s vintage Marxism with carefully distorted biblical passages. However, in contrast to traditional Marxism, it emphasizes race rather than class. The Christian notion of "salvation" in the afterlife is superseded by "liberation" on earth, courtesy of the establishment of a socialist utopia.

Catholics for Marx [Liberation Theology]
By Fr. Robert Sirico
FrontPageMagazine.com | Thursday, June 03, 2004

In the days when the Superpowers were locked in a Cold War, Latin America seethed with revolution, and millions lived behind an iron curtain, a group of theologians concocted a novel idea within the history of Christianity. They proposed to combine the teachings of Jesus with the teachings of Marx as a way of justifying violent revolution to overthrow the economics of capitalism.

The Gospels were re-rendered not as doctrine impacting on the human soul but rather as windows into the historical dialectic of class struggle. These "liberation theologians" saw every biblical criticism of the rich as a mandate to expropriate the expropriating owners of capital, and every expression of compassion for the poor as a call for an uprising by the proletarian class of peasants and workers.

Weatherman leaders like Mark Rudd traveled illegally to Havana in 1968 to engage in terrorist training.

My brother has spoken about it (communist-revolutionary "Black Liberation") on the radio for decades and is pissed at Hannity for acting like HE discovered it. Meanwhile, Hannity STILL knows practically nothing about it. The dumb*ss rarely even referred to the Weather Underground as being communist revolutionaries. The only time I heard him do it, and I listen a LOT to his programs, is when he was quoting something Ayers himself said.

Having Mr. Barton on was a great invite. He gave me permission to post his documentary online. But Perryman sued the Democrat Party for their crimes against blacks, Shelby Steele’s been talking about revisionist history for years, and despite academia being the primary culprit for revising history, Beck had on a professor.

There is a lot that Hannity doesn't understand.

Bless his heart, because it is in the right place. However, to me, he is sometimes an embarrassment to the cause.

Every 3rd word is "literally." Every 5th word is "specificity." Worse than the repetition, he uses these words incorrectly. They are window dressing for his shallowly explained points.
I know that he is second in ratings only to Rush L., but I feel that his intellectual backwardness is an overall minus for the conservative movement.

Agree. Beck certainly didn’t try to take credit for revealing this. He is trying to expose the left for deleting it from our history books in the first place to keep the blacks dependent on the government.

Was Parks one of the two guys on his show yesterday? I sure hope not.

Thank you for building the foundation upon which Glen Beck brought to millions of people the truth about Black history in America.

Some of the stories brought tears as I pictured those men of color who so bravely put aside the fear and disgust they must have felt for the slave system to fight for freedom alongside the other patriots.

America is truly a gift from God I think, and this revelation of Black history underlined that most perfectly. It is such a horrible shame what we did in terms of slavery, it is also a horrible shame we we do with the democrat/liberal bigotry of dependence upon government, destruction of families, education, etc. in modern times.

America is a set of ideals which we will always be striving to achieve...perfection is God’s realm, all we can do is strive for excellence.

No need for that. A lot of folks who were trying to warn people about what was happening for YEARS regarding the Communist left and the "Liberation" movement are angry at 'Johnny come latelys' like Hannity and Limbaugh. Neither got/get into the important details. Both were afraid to even use the 'C' word (Communist) to describe what was happening. Hannity still rarely uses it. Limbaugh has only, within the past 1-1/2 years or so, begun using it. And forget .jack*ss Bill O'Reilly

A great segment on a very important and neglected part of our American history. My only gripe is that Beck does exaggerate a little bit to make his point. Armistead was certainly not the only “double agent” working for the Americans during the Revolution and if any “double agent” could be credited with saving/winning the American Revolution, it almost certainly should be John Honeyman of New Jersey. Armistead was an important figure in the history of Revolutionary War spying but Beck unintentionally goes a little too far and I think that actually makes a mockery of the historical record.

I thought the show was wonderful and I said as much on another thread. I learned a lot in that hour show. For instance, I had no idea that David Barton of Wall Builders helped get much of the information about these Black patriots back into Texas (and thus many other states’) textbooks. Beck has the viewership horsepower to get this out to the masses and he did just that. You’re sounding like Mark Levin when he claims Beck is always stealing his ideas. It sounds petty and does our cause no good. I’m just happy the word is getting out.

It goes back much further than Beck and his guests stated.

I was born in 1943. I _never_ recall being taught about black Founders. I discovered a tiny bit of suppressed history on my own, such as the existence of black slaveholders and black soldiers, while the Reconstruction era was presented from a 50s Southern Democrat Party position.

Having a mixed audience that obviously included history majors/grad students who were black was also a good touch, although there wasn’t enough time for too many questions from the audience.

Beck is also teaching that we need to get beyond the sports team version of politics. Party is irrelevant. We need to disseminate information and grill candidates on real ideas, not on buzz-word shorthand hot button substitutes like *prayer*, *choice*,*States Rights*, etc. Everyone on all sides has too much of a knee jerk response to such presentations.

We live in a *star* culture. Shelby has a limited audience and his books were ignored or marginalized, so the information didn’t get fair or wide dissemination. The professors Beck had on at least went out and did the research, wrote books and founded organizations and are being given a platform for the first time.

Bob, you are right, but if the real history of all of us as Americans is going to be revealed, we need to accept those who do it, even if they are academics or any other category we resent. Our enemies want us divided. They need us to fight among ourselves. They need history distorted to their ends. We need millions of people of all races, religions, professions to know all of the truth, good and ugly, so when we are told “Blacks cannot be conservative.” or “Artists cannot be conservative.” (this is the dismissal I have received), we just laugh and tell more truth. It is about truth, not anything else. The goal is to re-unite America and end the Balkanization used to enslave us.

We all need to be freed from all the various plantations. Beck is teaching a Refounding. He is going to be awkward and sometimes make missteps, but those walking point usually do.

IMO, Hannity is a mile wide and an inch deep on most subjects that he chooses to pontificate on. Take your original parenthetical statement and it applies to most of Hannity’s rantings. Thus: lather, rinse, repeat.

Glenn Beck, by bringing on the Professor and Barton, performed a great service to all American citizens.

Sadly, most Americans have never read the authentic histories of the founding period, as written by early historians. Instead, they have been exposed to revisionist histories, written by 20th Century writers who deliberately erased those facts which did not fit their "Progressive" agenda for "change"--that is, making all citizens slaves to a political elite in Washington, D. C., in cahoots with other "global" powers.

Not only have they, in effect, as Lynn Cheney once wrote, "erased our national memory," but they have endangered the liberty of future generations.

Wallbuilders.com has a tremendous library of original writings for any who wish to search out the facts for themselves, as do other web sites.

Well, Mr. Parks, you are one impressive fellow! I can see from the video you were aware of what Beck presented quite a while ago. But...rather than resent him in this...I see his presentation, with his popularity, a conduit to getting this information out to more people.

Finally, maybe, the truth will out!

Do you have a personal biography available? I just wonder how you escaped the prevailing mind set that has captured most blacks through the efforts of Jackson, Sharpton, etc. and the prevailing efforts of the liberals to keep blacks ‘in line’.

You must have had wonderful parents.

More like “uncovering” than discovering. The leftists stereotype all blacks as being in the W. E. B. DuBois, 0bama model.

Mr. Parks, we wouldn't have known about this significant piece of history if it hadn't been for Glenn Beck. Many people are only now opening their eyes to issues such as this and thus wouldn't have come upon your website or videos. Now they will.

People were not taught the historical truth when I was in school or when Glenn Beck was in school. Now he has the tools and most importantly, the venue to spread it and plant seeds of inspiration for people to learn more.

He's not trying to "take credit" for "discovering" but he does deserve appreciation for his educational programs. He thanks God every day that he is allowed to and so do I. Can't you see how excited he about his continuing walk on the road to enlightenment? Have you contacted him about your disgruntlement? Perhaps he will do a follow-up show.

"...I feel that his intellectual backwardness is an overall minus for the conservative movement."

Not everyone is on the same level as you. Hannity speaks to those who are "conservative" but perhaps not as rigidly Right as you or I. Some people need to have things repeated and essentially pounded into their heads. He does that well. He is a good, moral, generous and dedicated man who is doing his best to give voice to those who aren't political or history junkies but are interested enough to desire more information because it affects them and their families.

I wish people would quit it with the terms like "intellectual backwardness" when it comes to describing Sean Hannity. It makes them no better than the "intellectual elite" know-it-alls. Those people find Hannity's audience beneath them because it is comprised primarily of white-bread Americans, yet they certainly couldn't do what he does every day.

Caught only a small part of Beck’s show. I wonder how many here know who Crispus Attucks was (or if Beck mentioned him). I’ve known that fact for a few decades since Oscar Robertson attended Crispus Attucks High School in Indiana. It was such an unusual name that I researched it at some point and learned that Attucks was the first person killed in the Boston Massacre in 1770.

Does anyone remember the movie “Glory”. It was about a black regiment during the Civil War. I thought it was an excellent movie and was a portrayal of the Civil War I had never seen on film. Well, from the criticism that arose, you would have thought this film was on par with Birth of a Nation. I remember Spike Lee, specifically, along with other activists complaining because the movie focused on the letters of correspondence from the commander of the black troops, i.e. (white mans story). The other complaint was that the movie didn’t have input from the black community. Instead of absorbing the rich history that these men experienced in this wonderful movie, the leftys tried to villify the director and downplay the whole story with stupid controversy.

So, as they say; Same Sh_t, Different Day.

No need for that. A lot of folks who were trying to warn people about what was happening for YEARS regarding the Communist left and the "Liberation" movement are angry at 'Johnny come latelys' like Hannity and Limbaugh.

ooh. That's a lot of bitterness you're spitting out, ETL. Yes, you and others have been trying to warn people for years, but you weren't heard or noticed. There was really no ignition, no reason, to look into Black Liberation Theology until it was learned that Barack Obama was listening to that radical preacher, Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

Don't feel bad about your warnings not being noticed for years; David Horowitz could say the same thing. It took an event like the Presidential campaign to call it to most of America's attention. Sean Hannity could have ignored it like the rest of the media but he didn't. Aren't you even the slightest bit appreciative that the truth is coming out? Why waste your time being angry and bitter since that does no one any good and makes you unapproachable on the subject. Keep on keeping on and I'm right there with you.

I'll bet Glenn does another Black founders show. Maybe this time he will invite you.

The show was great, but Glenn wastes soooo much time. In his long first segment (too long) he thinks he has all kinds of time, and wastes it. Then in the short (too short) segments at the end of the show he has to try and squeeze things in. Yesterday's show was a perfect example of this. Also, when you have guests on, LET THEM TALK. Glenn relating history that he admits on air that he was fuzzy on and didn't review before the show, babbles on & on unsure of his facts, when he has two EXPERTS sitting right there.

I love Glenn, I just think his work is so important, that I hate to see him waste time. I just want him to be better at it.

I thought it was a good show. And that it was pointed out that a lot
of this history simply got “deleted” in a lot of history books.

I do appreciate Barton’s use of footnotes/citations in his research,
as well as actually possessing many original documents/books.
Drives the liberals crazy when he can quote “line and verse” from
historical figures in direct contradiction of what the liberals
wish history was.
