Out of the Dark Depths Rising

The liberals are bashing America again, delighted that protestors and rioters have taken to the streets over the Ferguson and Eric Garner grand jury decisions. The liberal message is the same: The American justice system has broken down; capitalism has broken down; our social order has broken down; America was an evil white institution from its inception. It’s all part of Obama’s promise to “fundamentally change America.”

Of course Obama and his liberal schemers are intent upon dismantling America and making it over into their own tyranny. Sadly, they have had a lot of success because they are aided by establishment politicians from both major parties. So, what country would these plotters like to see America modeled after?

How about a quick history lesson? How about we tell the real truth about America and what the world was like back 1776. Let us explain to this modern generation how America is a dream that rose out of the muck and mire of a dark oppression dating back to Cain and Abel.

We can go to Africa, that land of tribal chieftains — Egypt and the Pharaohs – and the Middle East and Isaac and Ishmael — Arabia, magic carpets, eunuchs, and harem slave-girls. Then as now, women and children were subjected to especially cruel degradation. The Middle East is the land of stoning, beheadings, and crucifixions. The Romans introduced crucifixions – but the Middle East reveled in it. Is not the history of that part of the world steeped in slavery and human exploitation? Yet, our school kids are taught the “rich and diverse” culture of Africa and the Muslim world. At the same time, they are taught that America’s founders were all a bunch of rich, white, brutal slave-holders.

Back then, as now, much of the world remained in the dark ages of human subjugation. But in 1776, here in America freedom-loving men from all walks of life took up arms against the most powerful army and navy in the world and fought for the God-given liberty of man. It was called the American Revolution and it was an experiment never attempted before in the history of the human race – for in America, the only powers the new government had were those granted by the people – a government that only governed with the consent of the people.

Yet, today America – and only America seems to deserve condemnation for its history and traditions.

Back then in north Africa there were pirates and slavers from Morocco to Libya. Down in the Congo the tribal chiefs were selling their own people to the Portuguese – and to the Muslim pirates and warlords. Do you hear Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Al Sharpton, or Jesse Jackson spew vitriol against Morocco or Algeria or Tunisia, or Libya? Any harsh words for the history of the Congo? Any condemnation of the slave trade in Africa even today?

Back then, the Portuguese could boast of being the most efficient at the business of human trafficking. The Portuguese traded slaves throughout Europe and the new world – a thriving commerce of men, women, and children. And ransom, which was as profitable then as it is now. But today in America, school children are not taught to condemn Portugal, nor do our liberal politicians rail against the Portuguese.

Today, America – and only America seems to deserve condemnation for its history and traditions.

Do we condemn Italy, Turkey, and Greece because of their history? It is a history of proud and honorable fall-on-your-sword warriors – gladiators, gory extravaganzas and cheering crowds, Christian-fed lions, flailing prisoners alive, upside down crucifixions — all public entertainment – all wonderful divertimentos. Bread and circuses.

And back then it seems, everyone was at war with Persia – Persia where it was popular to kill people by boiling them in oil. And exactly who invented impaling – I mean before Europe embraced it so widely?

That was the state of world affairs back in America, back in 1776 when a ragtag group of rebels fought for the rights of man – self-government and individual liberty. There was a lot of work yet ahead for the new nation, for it was a nation out of the dark depths rising.

Yet, today America – and only America seems to deserve condemnation for its history and traditions.

Do we condemn the Scandinavians for their history? How about those Vikings, eh? No, not the football team. Which brings to mind The Redskins. The America Indians were a bunch of cruel savages who today enjoy a false narrative of pseudo nobility. They were slavers, too, and thieves and murderers long before the white man came along to civilize them. They delighted in torture and rape as much as the Europeans. And if the truth be told, they were not the first inhabitants here. But that’s another story for another time.

Back to the Scandinavians. The Vikings were slavers and marauders. They were great sailors and navigators who navigated themselves right down through the villages of the Saxons and Franks and Brits. Were they spreading the message of peace and love and brotherhood? Not quite – unless you want to claim they were teaching the local villagers about bond-fires, orgies, mass slaughter, and unabashed frolicking.

How about Spain? How about the Moors in Andalucía? The Moors were Muslim – and we all know about the Muslims. Do you remember Ferdinand and Isabella? Nice Roman Catholic couple. They perfected the Inquisition to a state of fine art. In its strictest sense, the Inquisition was nothing more than a series of trials. Every accused person deserves a trial. I guess that’s why there is no condemnation today of Spain’s history, or the history of the Roman Catholic Church or Christianity. There is no condemnation of the Muslim religion or Muslim traditions – not today in our American classrooms.

But such was the state of world affairs back in 1776 when a group of “rabble in arms” pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor to give birth to America.

Yet, today, America – and only America seems to deserve condemnation for its history and traditions.

The Brits had their own Inquisition. The Brits had their floggings and public hangings, but that could be said of any civilized society back then. They had their indentured servants to abuse. Ah, Jolly old England! Ever hear of the witch burnings and executions by drawing and quartering. It was the Brits who burned Joan of Arc at the stake. It’s true they gave her a trial first. Every accused person deserves a trial. And how can you think of Joan of Arc and the Brits without conjuring images of mass rape.

But that’s not fair. Rape was not solely a British practice. It was popular throughout the old world. Then, as now, women and children were subjected to especially cruel degradation. I believe I’m repeating myself.

Do any of the Obama liberals condemn Saddam Hussein’s rape rooms or the abduction of women and young girls in Africa today? If they do, it’s a whispered condemnation. I guess things aren’t that much different today from the state of world affairs in 1776 when a group of British colonists gave birth to a dream they called America.

Yet, today America – and only America seems to deserve condemnation for its history and traditions.

The British – like the Romans — loved the spectacular. Like all those severed heads impaled on poles decorating the exterior walls of Newgate Prison. It’s pronounced “new-git,” I believe – if you want to be proper about it. When still attached to bodies, those heads were given a trial – as every accused person deserves. What an auspicious sight those heads must have been to those early travelers riding past Newgate on the road into London town. But there is no condemnation today of the British because of their history and traditions. At least not in America’s government schools.

Don’t be so modest, you Germans and Scotsmen and Irish – you Celts and Druids. And you Saxons and Normans. You had your own wild and glorious adventures. There were Catholics and Protestants killing each other, and both were killing Pagans. To be fair, Catholic and Protestant were also unkind to Jews. Jews were those people who had to become merchants and bankers and traders because they were not allowed to own land in Europe and could not be farmers and herdsmen. And the Muslims, of course, were against everyone, even back them. It seems no one was on speaking terms.

But there is no condemnation today of old Europe and the Balkans because of their history and traditions. That was just the state of world affairs back then – back when a group of armed citizens in the American colonies were giving the British hell.

Yet, today, America – and only America seems to deserve condemnation for its history and traditions.

The Guillotine:

And maybe you are French – and maybe you’ve forgotten about the French Revolution and your “Reign of Terror.” Remember the bloody guillotine? And how about those de Medicis? How about those Norman warlords? How about that Saint Bartholomew’s Day Massacre and those damned Huguenots? And remember L’ Homme au Masque de Fer – the Man in the Iron Mask? Talk about cruel and unusual punishment. How creative was that, eh? The stuff of legends, it was. But there’s no condemnation today of France or its history and traditions.

What I’ve described is a very brief overview of the “old world” and the depths of dark evil and inhumanity out of which America climbed. America became an enclave of “government by consent of the people,” a sanctuary of personal liberty, private property, capitalism, and God-given natural rights.

America rose up out of the old world power and oppression, out of a wretched swampland of muck and mire. And as we did, what we did was unheard of in the known world, and maybe it was not unexpected that we should carry with us some of the slime of how things were — until we finally rid ourselves of indentured servitude, the flogging of our sailors, the cruel horrors of slavery, and the disenfranchisement of women. And since then, who has done better, and who has done more?

A fledgling America managed to spread its wings and rise above the old world of Cain and Abel; Isaac and Ishmael; Christian against Jew against Muslim; tribe against tribe. America is the living affirmation that man’s rights come from God, not from government, not from monarchs nor warlords nor phony liberal ideologies.

Yet, today, America – and only America seems to deserve condemnation for its history and traditions.

Barack Obama is an evil man at a Whores Dance of demons and tyrants. They have a cruel agenda. They want to tear down America with divisive hatred and open the doors to their radical ideology of tyranny.

Obama and Holder and the power-mongers in Washington want to tear down our American heritage and rewrite our history in their own hateful way. They vilify our legal system and the traditions of our grand juries and our courts. They set up corrupt puppet judges and obedient bureaucrats who disregard our Constitution. Once they’ve succeeded in dismantling America, once the people and the school children believe their lies, they can decree the law of the land unfair. Then they will brazenly rule outside the law and to tell the people they are doing so in the name of justice. They already have a good start.

“No justice, no peace!” they cry. The condemnation of America and American traditions is relentless. And the people cheer believing America is and always was a cruel land – that America and capitalism are responsible for all the sorrows that were actually caused, not by capitalism, but by the liberal wrecking ball.

The tyrants claim to rule in the name of “justice” – an unwritten justice subject to their own whim — and soon there will be no laws except those decreed by corrupt men of power. Soon the people will no longer have the old written laws to protect them – because the written laws, the Constitution – all that was America – will have been destroyed.

So forgive me if I repeat my first paragraph:

The liberals are bashing America again, delighted that protestors and rioters have taken to the streets over the Ferguson and Eric Garner grand jury decisions. The liberal message is the same: The American justice system has broken down; capitalism has broken down; our social order has broken down; America was an evil white institution from its inception. It’s all part of Obama’s promise to “fundamentally change America.”

And Obama would have you believe that surely, America deserves condemnation for its history and traditions.

Back in 1776, out of the dark depths rising came a new covenant between God and man. Through all the long and troubled years, God has honored that covenant. But Obama has turned his back on that sacred promise. The real question is: Have we?
