“What happened in Selma is part of a far larger movement which reaches into every section and State of America. It is the effort of American Negroes to secure for themselves the full blessings of American life.
Their cause must be our cause too. Because it is not just Negroes, but really it is all of us, who must overcome the crippling legacy of bigotry and injustice.
And we shall overcome.”
– President Lyndon B. Johnson, Special Message To Congress, March 15, 1965
If you are around my age, chances are you have never heard of Selma before, which is a small Antebellum cotton town in West Alabama. The historical importance of this city to the creation of Black Run America (BRA) cannot be exaggerated.
Americans who are old enough to have lived through the 1960s remember Selma and can probably tell you why what happened there was so important.
When John Lewis and Hosea Williams led a crowd of 600 African-Americans from the George Washington Carver housing projects and were dispersed on the Edmund Pettus Bridge by Alabama state troopers and Dallas County sheriff’s deputies, ABC broadcast the “shocking images” of “Bloody Sunday” across the world.
Thanks to DWLs, millions of Americans saw wicked Alabama segregationists on television beating helpless “non-violent” protesters, not a known hate group which explicitly endorsed violence and whose official battle cry was “black power” leading a menacing and unlawful march by a flash mob out of the Selma ghetto, which was the brainchild of a delusional child molester.
The slanted news coverage in Selma turned public opinion against Jim Crow. The Whites of Selma were demonized by DWLs as little more than irrational racist bigots who were standing in the way of America’s “progress.”
The Voting Rights Act, which emerged as a product of the Selma campaign, unleashed a social and political revolution in America:
(1) It massively augmented “the black vote” which allowed African-Americans to conquer major cities like Birmingham, Atlanta, and Richmond. Whites were forced out to the surrounding suburbs.
(2) It eliminated the segregationist strongholds in Congress and replaced them with majority-minority districts in the Black Belt which tilted the entire American political spectrum to the Left.
(3) It transformed Southern politics by forcing the White vote to solidify into a racial bloc under the leadership of the Republican business elite. In other words, it eliminated the White working class as an independent political force, which is why you don’t see elected officials like Bull Connor anymore.
(4) It introduced every form of corruption imaginable to the political process when African-Americans started using their newfound political power to loot the national treasury.
(5) Because of the ever present threat of the black vote, not to mention the threat posed by other forms of chaos that African-Americans are capable of unleashing (such as burning down Los Angeles and Detroit), Whites are forced to hide their true feelings and systematically censor what they say about blacks in the public sphere.
In so many words, White America finds itself in a bad marriage with African-Americans because of the stupid decisions made a generation ago in a more innocent age.
No one is allowed to call attention to the massive black hole which destroyed Selma or the black hole in Birmingham which bankrupted Jefferson County or the black hole in West Montgomery or the black hole in Atlanta which just devoured Brittney Watts.
(6) Finally, the Voting Rights Act handed cities like Tuskegee and Selma over to African-Americans on a silver platter, whose incompetence and mismanagement created the first waves of White refugees from these expanding “black holes,” which are metastasizing across the state like cancer and gnawing away at the foundation of our economy like termites.
Today, Selma is 23.5 percent White and 74.3 percent African-American. In 2008, Barack Hussein Obama carried Dallas County with 67.1 percent of the vote. African-Americans are 66.9 percent of Dallas County.
Selma has a black mayor. It has a black majority city council. There are three Whites on the city council. Whites are still 23.5 percent of the population. Thus, the racial character of Selma is not as far gone as Tuskegee, which is 95.9 percent African-American, but it is clearly headed in that direction.
What does Selma represent?
It represents the birthplace of Black Run America. Because of what happened on the Edmund Pettus Bridge, we had to give voting rights to African-Americans, which means we later had to surrender Atlanta and Detroit to African-Americans, and ultimately elect Barack Hussein Obama to “fulfill the dream” of Martin Luther King and the Civil Rights Movement.
What happened to Selma? The DWLs in the media lost all interest in the story after the Voting Rights Act was passed. Now that Barack Hussein Obama is BRA’s president, isn’t it about time to do a follow up story on the city that brought this all about?
Someone has to do the job the MSM won’t do. The SPLC and Montgomery Advertiser are not reporting on this breaking news story. “Those Who Can See” are in for a treat today. We’re crossing the Alabama Veldt to take a tour of post-apocalyptic Selma.
In 1965, MLK led the Selma-to-Montgomery March down this four lane highway. It is now a National Historic Trail. Along the highway, I saw three “campsites” which had been identified with historic markers where the marchers, many of whom were DWL koolaid drinking hippies in the mold of Nicholas Kristof of the New York Times, had slept in the cornfields.
By the time you reach the outskirts of Selma, you can already tell that something is visibly wrong: there are rundown trailer parks on either side of the road, the roads seem poorly maintained, the grass is getting higher.
The construction and decoration of the buildings on the outskirts of Selma announces to anyone familiar with the general pattern that you are about to enter a black hole. Similar buildings can be found in Macon County on the other side of the state.
The Chamber of Commerce has a nicer “Welcome to Historic Selma” sign as you get closer. Unfortunately, the attention of the visitor is soon distracted by the Minnie B. Anderson homes on the other side of the road.
It is a whole neighborhood of abandoned houses with gaping holes in their roofs, trees and vines growing up around the homes, windows with shattered glass, although a few of the units did seem to be occupied by African-Americans, and I did see a few black children playing among the ruins.
Next up, an abandoned grocery store being reclaimed by the wilderness, and a competitive KFC sign that boasts of “Selma’s Best Chicken!” There are fried chicken joints all over Selma including an upscale Zaxby’s which looks utterly out of place in the decaying city.
As I entered Selma, I shot a photo of a black fictional image on a billboard: 7 African-Americans and 1 White female graduating from Concordia College.
The scene at the foot of the Edmund Pettus Bridge which houses the “National Voting Rights Museum” is breathtaking. Just look at this national embarrassment.
This is the memorial to the Selma-to-Montgomery march at the foot of Edmund Pettus Bridge. Across the street, you can see the “National Voting Rights Museum,” which has apparently fallen on hard times.
Edmund Pettus Bridge
The Edmund Pettus Bridge, which stretches across the Alabama River like the Colossus of Rhodes, is a monument to the White people who built Selma, and to what the city could have been had it not been destroyed by the Voting Rights Act.
I walked across the bridge (from the Montgomery side, making a point to come from the opposite direction) and shot some photos of the Alabama River below. In Downtown Selma, I shot some photos from an angle, which gives a more scenic view of the accomplishment.
This is what it must feel like to tour the ruins of the Roman Empire in Europe.
The Antebellum waterfront in Selma which used to contain lots of businesses was completely deserted on a Sunday afternoon. No one could be seen walking around. The Selma-Times Journal is still run out of there though.
The neutron bomb effect, which is on even more prominent display in Tuskegee, “The Pride of Swift Growing South,” is consistently a reliable indicator of a black hole.
Brown Chapel/George Washington Carver Housing Projects
As I turned off Water Avenue, I hit Martin Luther King St. and rode less than a mile or two up the road to the George Washington Carver housing projects, which is centered on Brown Chapel, now designated a “National Historic Landmark,” where Martin Luther King, Jr. ran the Selma campaign.
The “civil rights activists” who were famously repulsed by Alabama state troopers on Edmund Pettus Bridge had marched out of the Carver housing project which in 2011 looks virtually unchanged after fifty years of the Great Society welfare spending.
This whole publicity scheme in Selma was James Bevel’s idea, one of MLK’s top lieutenants, who was subsequently found guilty of molesting his own daughters in 2007. In the 1990s, Bevel was Lyndon LaRouche’s vice presidential candidate, so it should come as no surprise that the Selma-to-Montgomery March was his idea.
James Bevel’s wife, Diane Nash of Chicago, was a founder of SNCC and played a major role in the integration of Nashville and the “Freedom Rides” to Alabama. Later, SNCC renounced non-violence, went full “black power,” and expelled its White members, including the delusional DWL twin fruitcakes James Peck and James Zwerg, who were famously beaten on camera in Birmingham and Montgomery.
After Selma, Diane Nash went to North Vietnam to rub shoulders with Ho Chi Minh, Stokely Carmichael went to Cuba to denounce America with Fidel Castro, Bob Moses changed his name and moved to Tanzania, and John Lewis became a U.S. congressman who represents Georgia’s Fifth Congressional District in Atlanta.
John Lewis was Brittney Watts’ congressman.
Interestingly enough, none of these agitators actually stuck around in Selma after using the people who lived there as pawns to advance their radical agenda. Predictably, they moved on like locusts to the next city – this time in Mississippi, which was a spectacular failure – to stir up more trouble and draw more attention to themselves.
The Jewish Synagogue
There is a massive brick synagogue in Selma which used to serve the Dallas County Jewish community. It is now decaying like the YMCA across the street and the rest of the city. Jews and Whites been been abandoning Selma ever since African-Americans seized power.
It will come as a great disappointment to anti-Semites and Jewish leftists alike (this is a must see video) that Jews didn’t play much of a role in the triumph of the Civil Rights Movement in Selma.
Lehman Brothers got its start in Montgomery. Jewish merchants once dominated the Selma business district. Selma had Jewish mayors who supported Jim Crow.
Not only were Jews never excluded from the Selma Country Club, Jews had played a major role in founding it. Jews flocked to the Selma synagogue from neighboring cities like Demopolis and Camden which also once had a Jewish mercantile presence.
In the parts of the Deep South, Sephardic and Ashkenazi Jews had assimilated almost completely into the WASP power structure, and never took much of an interest in assaulting it, as they were the business establishment in some of these cities.
In Selma, the civil rights protesters led a boycott of the downtown business district, which in a replay of Tuskegee crippled many of the Jewish owned stores. White flight from Selma subsequently ruined their businesses.
Now there are all of 12 Jews left in Selma who are still complaining about Martin Luther King and Rabbi Abraham Heschel.
Like most other cities, Selma has a commercial strip populated with franchises that you would see in any other city: McDonald’s, Sonic, Hardee’s, Wendy’s, Burger King, etc.
There is a Wal-Mart Super Center. Unlike Tuskegee, Selma has a few chain hotels like the Hampton Inn and Day’s Inn, where a White person could spend the night if necessary.
And yet, you can clearly see the presence of the black hole in Selma’s business district. The city looks much older and grimier than nearby Prattville. The grass and roads have been neglected by the black city government.
In a few decades, Selma will be the spitting image of Tuskegee if it continues to shed its White population because of its crumbling economic foundation.
The Selma Historic District was my last stop on my whirlwind tour of the city that gave Black America the right to vote. I set out in search of Sturdivant Hall which is one of Alabama’s most well known Greek Revival antebellum mansions.
It is still sitting there like a jewel in all its Antebellum splendor.
There are a number of other Antebellum homes in the area, but what I saw in Selma was nothing resembling Eufaula, which is Selma’s twin city in the Eastern Black Belt, and which still has a White government.
Less than a mile from Sturdivant Hall, there are collapsed homes everywhere which are being reclaimed by weeds, teen pregnancy billboards which advertise syphilis tests, and a parting image which poignantly summarizes the neglect and economic devastation on display everywhere in Selma.
I will leave you with this …
Do not let this happen to your city.
I strongly encourage our Northern readers (by that I mean those who do not live in Chicago, Detroit, Philly, Newark, etc.), who because of their geographic distance from the American negro are more susceptible to false and exaggerated estimates of the leadership capabilities of African-Americans, to recall the words of President Abraham Lincoln.
“I will say, then, that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races; that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say, in addition to this, that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live while they do remain together, there must be the position of superior and inferior. I am as much as any other man in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race.”
Will forever forbid … unless Whitey is either lied to by the media or succumbs to self hatred, as no sane person would actually want to live in a black hole.
Still to this day, that is good advice for Chicago and Selma.
Note: I am in the process of uploading the photos and inserting the links to the Selma travelogue. The final gallery will soon be tagged and labeled on our Flickr account.
