William Lloyd Garrison, "all on fire" in the cause of anti-slavery

Alabama

“I am aware that many object to the severity of my language; but is there not cause for severity? I will be as harsh as truth, and as uncompromising as justice. On this subject, I do not wish to think, or to speak, or write, with moderation.”

– William Lloyd Garrison

In an amazing turn of events, the SPLC has been forced to acknowledge the marauding flash mobs which most recently launched The Blitz of 2011 on the United Kingdom and savagely beat Whites at the Wisconsin State Fair to the point where Democrats lost the Wisconsin recall elections.

The SPLC is right to observe:

“Either way, the trend, if not stanched, could push the nation toward a new social rupture that undermines decades of tentatively easing tensions between whites and blacks.”

I intend to do everything in my power (hopefully with some assistance) to bring down this tyrannical and unaffordable racial caste system – Black Run America (1965-2012) – that generations of White Southern Christians have been forced to live under since 1965:

Whether the black flash mob trend is a manifestation of anti-white hate – as white nationalist commentators eagerly affirm with breathless self-righteousness – or just a familiar spilling over of boredom and frustration from a teenage class that is still wracked by high unemployment and minuscule prospects for opportunity and advancement, one thing appears certain: Thanks to digital-speed social media, its consequences may be felt virtually anywhere, at any time – and with very little warning

There has definitely been a new air of self righteousness and zealotry in some of the “White Nationalist blogs” that have been condemning the “flash mobs.” We eagerly anticipate the 2012 election season and the opportunities it will surely provide to practice non-violent witness of reality on the SPLC.

As far as OD is concerned, it is a discursive turning point where the abstract analysis, the humorous observations, and the satirical rhetoric beings to evolve into a distinctly Protestant voice with sharper moral edge.

In 1831, William Lloyd Garrison founded The Liberator, the leading anti-slavery periodical of the Antebellum era. Garrison and his followers were the Northern counterparts of the Southern fire eaters that I have always admired like William Lowndes Yancey.

Leaving aside Garrison’s political views, the greatest abolitionist in American history was objectively a master of the art of rhetoric, and he won many followers over to his side in the ensuing decades. The same is true of the fire eaters like Robert Barnwell Rhett who from his post at The Charleston Mercury triumphed in South Carolina over the course of the 1850s.

In 1856, Sen. Charles Sumner of Massachusetts delivered his epic philippic on the subject of slavery in the U.S. Senate, The Crime Against Kansas. It was such a masterful presentation of the Yankee position on anti-slavery that it earned him a caning from Rep. Preston Brooks.

There is a lesson to be learned here: the art of rhetoric and political theory was far more advanced in the Antebellum era than it is in 2011 under Barack Hussein Obama who tours the Midwest to give bland speeches about his plan “pivot” to jobs from his teleprompter.

If you study the greats and admire them, there is a lot to be learned that is applicable to our situation: Henry Clay, John Quincy Adams, Daniel Webster, John C. Calhoun, Charles Sumner, William Lloyd Garrison, Robert Barnwell Rhett, William Lowndes Yancey, etc.

There is a treasure chest of American rhetoric buried in the National Archives which can be adapted to make our case against the SPLC and ACLU.

Note: Has Morris gone home to Macon County to shine the Booker T. statue yet? It shouldn’t be long now before the “flash mobs” strike in Birmingham and Montgomery. There has already been one in Mobile.

Update: Barack Hussein Obama has compared himself to Martin Luther King, Jr. This is actually a very good comparison as both of them were windbags.

If you read the Taylor Branch trilogy on the “Civil Rights Movement,” you will find that MLK was a publicity hound and media celebrity, the Elvis of Insolence. He was a Baptist preacher who did more nothing but give speeches to people on television and interviews to the Mainstream Media.

MLK played a major role (with the assistance of Newsweek and the New York Times) in passing the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. If you tour the Alabama Black Belt in 2011, you can see just how well those great ideas worked out in practice.

Obama is doing his best imitation of MLK by preaching on television and begging for money in New York State. He is a community organizer from Chicago like BRA’s moral evangel Jesse Jackson who doesn’t have anything resembling actual leadership qualities – his only qualification to be president is that he is black – just like Charles Blow’s only qualification to write for the New York Times is that he is black.

Charles Blow, the Wall Street vampires, and the Washington establishment are the real “Know Nothings.” 3/4th of the United States agrees that these people don’t have a clue as to how to fix the economy.

In between Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Eric “My People” Holder, and Barack Hussein Obama, they will finish off what the black fictional image MLK started, which is to say they will likely preside over the demise of Black Run America.

The Democratic Party needs five more years of Obama’s leadership. I read in The Los Angeles Times that even James Carville is ready to jump ship. What else can you do when Obama is putting New York into play?

Update: Barack Hussein Obama is going on another BRA Freedom Ride to the rural Midwest. He is spending a lot of time in the Midwest these days because a populist alliance between the Midwest and Dixie can finally put an end to the coastal fanatics who have destroyed the Democratic Party.

As a Southern Democrat, James Carville must be mortified when he hears Nancy Pelosi giving speeches like this:

It won’t be long now before Arkansas and Mississippi become Alabama and Georgia in the state legislatures.

  1. Barack Obama and Martin Luther King have something else in common. Both men rose to prominence with help of jewish advisors and jewish financial donors.

    From “Jewish Dominance and Exploitation of the Black Civil Rights Movement”:

    Many observers argue that the presumed Jewish altruism and social activism in the American civil rights movement of the 1960’s had baser motives. Benjamin Ginsberg argues that the multicultural coalitions spearheaded by Jews in the civil rights era “was a political tactic” to “undermine the power” of those establishment social forces that hindered further Jewish socio-economic advancement.[GINSBERG, p.125] In 1975 Hasia Dinner wrote a PhD thesis about the way that “Jewish support for black causes was a way for Jews to broaden their own rights without becoming conspicuous by advocating their group interests.”[FEINGOLD, p.130] Diner writes “one must conclude that these leaders acted out of peculiarly Jewish motives…[My] book demonstrates that Jewish ends were secured by involvement with blacks.”[DINER, p. xiv, xii]

    Obama has always been the man he is today. He is the very personification of cognitive dissonance — the gap between what we (especially liberals) expected of the first serious African American presidential candidate and the man he in fact is. He has next to none of the rhetorical qualities of the old-time black politicians. He would eschew the cliche, but he feels little of their pain. In this sense, he has been patronized by liberals who looked at a man and saw black and has been reviled by those who looked at a black man and saw “other.”

  3. Consider for a moment that Obama’s account of how he had to fight to get medical coverage for his dying mother is not exactly true. The White House’s response to this revelation was grudging silence

  4. The emergent populist alliance between the midwest and the south? Wishful thinking, maybe. The last time that Minnesota, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Illinois all voted for a “conservative” was 1972, the last time even a majority of them voted “conservative” was 1988. They’re very reliably “blue.” I really don’t think the flash mobs have reversed their natural proclivities, yet. Preston Brooks failed to beat any sense into Charles Sumner, either.

    There’s still a lot of time before the election, though, so maybe there’s room for “hope and change.” I just wouldn’t bet the farm on it.

  5. Apuleius,

    The Midwest is clearly switching sides. It is happening at the state level. That is why Obama is panicking and has spent all his time campaigning in the Midwest.

    Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin have Republican governors and Republican state legislatures. Illinois sent Mark Kirk to the Senate to Barack Obama’s old Senate seat. Russ Feingold was defeated in Wisconsin.

    In 2010, the Democrats barely squeaked out small victories in Minnesota, Illinois, and Iowa. The Minnesota state legislature recently shutdown because of the budget fight between the Republican state legislature and the Democratic governor.

    Just recently, the Democrats lost their long awaited battle in the Wisconsin recall elections. Their polling has showing for months that White America is consolidating into a racial voting bloc.

    The Democrats are in so much trouble that New York is now in play for 2012.

  6. It is important to keep in mind that the North has changed its mind before. Remember the 1880s and 1890s? The Radical Republicans lost power in the North. That is how we got home rule.

    Having to live under Barack Hussein Obama’s economic leadership is turning the Midwest against Reconstruction 2.0.

  7. Hunter, I sure hope you’re right. Maybe I just suffer from Hubert Humphrey, Eugene McCarthy, George McGovern, Gerald Ford, Walter Mondale, Hilary Clinton, Richard Daley, Barack Obama, Al Franken, Rahm Emmanuel, etc… fatigue. Or can the leopard change his spots?

    Let’s examine some evidence take a close look at the main five solid blue states of the upper midwest:
    Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, and Iowa

    Last time the state voted for a Republican presidential candidate:
    Minnesota: 1972 (39 years ago!), Wisconsin: 1984, Illinois: 1988, Michigan: 1988, Iowa: 2004 (1st time since 1984)

    Current Senators:
    Minnesota: 2 Democrats, Wisconsin: 1 Dem/1 Rep, Illinois: 1 Dem/1 Rep, Michigan: 2 Democrats, Iowa: 2 Democrats
    Let’s see that 8 Democrats and 2 Republicans–very conservative, indeed. Even more than practically anywhere this side of Massachusetts (1 Dem/1 Rep).

    Say, how’s that gay marriage thing working out in Iowa? Sure hope it’s going well for them. Nothing like a good bunch of “fiscal conservatives” liking each other…a lot.

    These states have some of the most restrictive gun control laws in the country. Not quite NY, Massachusetts or California, but it ain’t for lack of trying.

    Quick question: What are the ONLY TWO states in the entire country that do not have some form of concealed carry gun laws?
    Wisconsin and Illinois (NOTE: Neither state is in New England.)

    One thing I love about the fall is starting hunting season off with a good dove hunt. Of course, I’m sure you know that you can’t go dove hunting in any Northeastern state (NY or above) and also…Iowa! I believe Michigan can’t either now because they voted down a referendum–in 2006 while they were turning conservative. All other states have dove hunting seasons (except Alaska–it’s a migration issue, you know, got nothing to do with Mexicans, though).

    I’ll stop here because I’m starting to get bored with it. Looking back on the small amount of data, I can honestly say that most of it could be overlooked–except for the dove season part.

    When I think about a freshly grilled dove breast, wrapped in bacon with a jalapeno tucked in behind the breast bone…it’s just not American not to like something that good. Those people are not like us at all!!!

    Maybe it is just an education problem. They ought to pass a law or set up a government agency, don’t you think?

  8. Apuleius,

    It is possible for a state to change its spots.

    Again, the best example of this is Kansas, which was the home of the Jayhawkers and Bloody Kansas, but which is now more conservative than Missouri or Florida.

    Kansas never forgave Washington for Roe vs. Wade. It is the headquarters of the anti-abortion movement. There is a good book about this state that is called “What’s The Matter With Kansas?”

    If I am not mistaken, South Dakota was the home of Tom Daschle and George McGovern.

    Colorado and Florida have been transformed by transplants. Virginia has been changed by transplants. It goes without saying that California has changed its colors because of immigration.

    In the 1930s, North Dakota was a hotbed of socialism and all kinds of leftist nonsense, but now North Dakota is a rock solid conservative state, which Obama lost when he carried North Carolina.

    My own theory is that in the long run the Midwest will become more like the Interior West. At the state level, I can already see it happening. Now that the industry of the Midwest has been outsourced to China by Wall Street, it is going through a political transformation.

    Note: Dove breasts with bacon are the best. Eat ’em every year.

  9. It took the South almost five decades to shake itself free of the Democratic Party. Just recently, the last Democrat on the Alabama Supreme Court left the bench, and “tort hell” has been transformed into one of the most pro-business states in America.

    Strange things are happening. Republicans control the Alabama legislature for the first time since Reconstruction.

    I can even see the day coming when Morris goes home to Macon County to shine the Booker T. statue.

  10. I’m fairly certain that fall elections are coming up in Kentucky, Virginia, and Mississippi. Let’s see what happens. I know that the Blue Dog in South Arkansas recently announced his retirement.

  11. I guess I am a bit jaded due to Yankee zerg rush here in Florida, terraforming away all our slash pine forests, destroying good quail habitat, voting for tax increases every chance they get, talking all the time about how much better things are up there (why did you move, then?), and making the usual remarks about Southerners just because they don’t know there’s some of us still here amid the wreckage…and Midwesterners are often the most vocal and critical.

    Also, the political impact of Republicans has been devastating for the South. Neoconservative/”fiscal conservative”/RINO/Northern moderate Republicans are in many respects way worse than Democrats–way more PC, quick to condemn “racism”, hateful of Southern folkways and traditions (neither of the carpetbagger Bush boys ever saw a Confederate monument or marker that he didn’t have dismantled or taken down). They are simply “liberal lite,” just retarding the destruction only so as to add to the “frog in the pot” syndrome that prevents public outcry until it is too late and there is nothing left to “conserve.” The death of a thousand paper cuts.

    I sure hope they get it together. Mostly, I hope the ones here in the South will either get their heart in Dixie, or their ass out!

    Deo Vindice.
