“If the North keeps trying to cram this thing (desegregation) down our throats, there’s going to be bloodshed.”
– Eugene “Bull” Connor
The big news of the day is that Jefferson County, Alabama – the home of the Birmingham metropolitan area – has finally earned the distinction of filing for the biggest municipal bankruptcy in American history.
The collapse of Birmingham is without a doubt BRA’s crowning achievement. America’s “most segregated city” where the climatic battle of the civil rights movement took place has been transformed into the biggest black hole in Alabama. It has taken 32 years of uninterrupted rule by the Black Undertow to destroy The Magic City.
Bull Connor is laughing so hard from the grave – see, I told you so – that he can be heard from one side of the state to the other. The city fathers who believed they could negotiate with MLK and the “Civil Rights Movement” must be quite proud of themselves on this glorious and historic day in Alabama.
As hard as it is to believe now, the Birmingham business leadership once believed that they could compete with Atlanta, and that if only segregation were dismantled, peace with the Black Undertow and the Mainstream Media would allow the downtown businesses to thrive. Since the 1960s, Birmingham has lost the Iron Bowl, five Fortune 500 companies, 40 percent of its population and has been transformed into a city that is 73 percent Negroid-American, over 27 percent of which subsists on the EBT card, and which is now the 7th most violent city in America.
The immediate cause of the collapse of Birmingham is the systematic corruption and fraud surrounding Mayor Larry Langford who as head of the Jefferson County Commission accumulated a $3.2 billion dollar sewer debt that was arranged by JP Morgan and financed by derivatives. These bonds were issued to finance “what could be the most expensive sewer system in history.”
Last year, Langford began serving a 15 year prison sentence after being arrested by the FBI on “a 101-count indictment alleging conspiracy, bribery, fraud, money laundering, and filing false tax returns in connection with a long-running bribery scheme.” He was convicted on 60 counts of public corruption and was removed from office.
As the Mayor of Birmingham, Larry Langford took more than $200,000 in money, designer clothes, and jewelry from Montgomery investment banker William B. Blount in exchange for steering more than $7 million in debt and credit default swap fees to two former JP Morgan bankers.
The decline of Birmingham began in earnest with the election of Richard Arrington, the first black mayor of a series of black mayors, who ruled the city for twenty years, and who transformed Birmingham into a national trendsetter in black crime, white flight, corruption, and racial nepotism.
There is a story behind the collapse of every great city. Birmingham is no exception:
In 1963, the “Reverend” Martin Luther King, Jr. (who was patronizing several mistresses across the country at the time) and the SCLC came to Birmingham to organize flash mobs to deliberately and flagrantly violate state and local segregation laws. They knew beforehand that the Mainstream Media had their back and would portray the flash mobs as heroes on national television.
In response to this massive outbreak of organized lawlessness, Eugene “Bull” Connor had the audacity to arrest thousands of these criminals, including the “Reverend” Martin Luther King, Jr., who sought out Birmingham and who came there for the specific purpose of getting himself arrested in a publicity stunt. Connor asked for and received an injunction that barred the Birmingham protests. MLK and Fred Shuttlesworth chose to violate the court order – it was an “unjust” court order like the “unjust” laws they had collectively decided to violate.
It was the convicted child molester James Bevel who organized what came to be known as the “Children’s Crusade” in Birmingham. After thousands of negroes had overwhelmed the Birmingham jails, Connor resorted to fire hoses to keep the flash mob (by this time, composed largely of black teenagers who were chosen to generate more sympathetic photo ops) from occupying the Birmingham downtown business district and destroying commercial activity in the city.
The Mainstream Media reported on the actions of the wicked and cruel segregationists of Birmingham (who were merely enforcing the law) and demanded a strong response from the federal government to protect MLK and the flash mobs (the violators of the law) who had created the anarchic situation. JFK dispatched three thousand federal troops to Birmingham to restore order.
The sole purpose of this premeditated stunt for the television cameras, the newspapers, and the national magazines was to change Northern public opinion and mobilize it behind the glorious cause of federal civil rights legislation that would destroy the Jim Crow system. That was also the purpose of selecting the Lincoln Memorial as the backdrop of MLK’s 1963 “I Have a Dream” speech.
A month later, JFK of Massachusetts went on television and addressed his nation – the United States of Yankeeland – on the subject of “civil rights” and the violence in Birmingham and other cities. He called for a federal civil rights law, which ultimately became the Civil Rights Act of 1964, to overthrow segregation and live up to the ideals of the 14th Amendment Constitution which was imposed on Dixie at gunpoint by the Union Army in Reconstruction.
After being filibustered for 74 days in the Senate by White Southerners, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 cleared both chambers of Congress. JFK’s nation overwhelmingly voted for the Civil Rights Act of 1964 which was sold by LBJ to the public as a tribute to JFK who had ironically been assassinated by the communist Lee Harvey Oswald in Dallas the previous year.
1 Southern senator and 7 Southern representatives in Congress voted for the Civil Rights Act of 1964. 21 Southern senators and 97 Southern representatives voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
72 Northern and Western senators and 283 Northern and Western representatives voted for the Civil Rights Act of 1964. 6 Northern and Western senators and 33 Northern and Western representatives voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
If there was ever a vote that decisively proved it is impossible to “take our country back” within the Union, it was the vote on the Civil Rights Act of 1964. After the Selma campaign, which replicated the organized lawlessness of the Birmingham campaign for Northern television audiences, the Voting Rights Act of 1965 was passed along the same sectional lines.
Jim Crow was overthrown by Congress. The color line was abolished by the Supreme Court. Bull Connor was removed from office as the Commissioner of Public Safety. The Negroid-American became an American voter.
A great experiment in “racial equality” was begun in Birmingham and countless other Southern cities. Almost immediately, the Voting Rights Act of 1965 swelled the black vote in Birmingham to 40 percent of the electorate.
This destroyed the political power of the White working class and created a gentry liberal electorate that allowed White business progressives and White liberals to rule Birmingham. George Siebels, Jr. and David Vann would rule Birmingham from 1967 until 1979.
Negroid-Americans like Richard Arrington and Larry Langford were elected to the Birmingham City Council. By 1980, Negroid-Americans had become a majority in The Magic City, and Richard Arrington was elected Mayor of Birmingham.
Whites fled the “One Great City” to the Jefferson County suburbs as the Black Undertow transformed Birmingham into a cesspool of crime, corruption, and affirmative action. By the 1990s, the Whites who served on the Birmingham City Council were mere puppets of Richard Arrington, who owed their positions to the endorsements of Arrington’s “Citizens’ Coalition” which represented the interests of the Negroid-American bloc vote.
The great utopian experiment in “colorblindness” temporarily empowered White liberals as overlords of Birmingham before they surrendered power to the new system of black supremacy which has been replicated in every major American city where Negroid-Americans have become a majority.
So now, we stand at the fitting terminus of the project of the “Civil Rights Movement” that MLK and Fred Shuttlesworth launched in Birmingham in 1963, as the Black Undertow has finally succeeded in bankrupting Jefferson County, thereby cutting off vital public services (such as adequate police protection) to the prosperous, hardworking White taxpayers of the Birmingham suburbs.
Birmingham has followed in the footsteps of Prichard in Mobile County. My own home in Barbour County is flirting with bankruptcy. There is no telling how many counties and municipalities in Alabama and Georgia are on the verge of bankruptcy right now.
Harrisburg, PA recently filed for bankruptcy. The “collapse of the system” is now underway. The Black Undertow cities and counties are falling like dominoes. Birmingham won’t be the last.
Centuries from now, our descendants will “Remember, Remember, Birmingham Collapsed on the 10th of November.”
