Remember when the Left was against Slavery?




Along with their endless demagoguery about racism in America, Liberals and the Left have had an obsession with slavery.

Those in the grievance business have even “progressed” to blaming all white people for slavery in America, which ended over 165 years ago.

These discussions usually lead to debates about whether the civil war was fought over slavery or states rights, whether people whose ancestors came to America in the 1900’s ought to be blamed for what the country did before they got here.

For that matter, should anyone alive today be culpable for sins they personally did not commit?  The use of their family origin and ancestry to demonize and persecute them is the very essence of racism isn’t it?

If it made a bit of sense to punish the offspring for the crimes of their grandparents and great-great grandparents, why aren’t our prisons full of them?

The cult-like Left has worked hard to keep black people on the psychological plantation of perceived victimhood to continue whipping up hatred and chaos for everyone in our country. Their strategy is always the same: Create or escalate a problem to justify the solution that was their real agenda all along.

Their solution is always to force more and bigger government on everyone to amass greater political power for themselves and less power and prosperity for everyone else.

They add even greater insult to our injuries by claiming this is all because they care so much about us–more than anyone else. They have crowned themselves benevolent dictators.  Of course, everything they demand that we do is for our own good.

What is slavery at its core?  Along with the evil notion that one human being can be “owned” by another and be forced into involuntary servitude, it is the equally evil notion that one human should be able to take the God-given right of autonomy and free will from another. The latter is necessary to create the former.

Right now, today, the Democrat Party which is controlled by the radical Left is engaged in making everyone think it is not only socially acceptable to use force to control the masses, but it is morally wrong to protest!

Using fraud and endless fear-mongering about “public health” they are working harder than ever to put individual liberty out of favor.

  After decades of lecturing us all about slavery, they seek to do exactly that—enslave people!

How foolish and naive for those who happen to agree with them about one thing today, to believe they will be saved from their own enslavement about something else tomorrow.

From free speech to women’s sports, from being “anti-corporation” to even littering, today’s Left has made a complete about-face on just about everything they once claimed to believe so vociferously.

Now, they have unmasked themselves as being pro-slavery.

We could keep arguing about what sort of punishment Caryn Johnson (Whoopi Goldberg) deserves, but isn’t this a more worthy battleground?

When people aren’t taught History, they tend to apply present day standards to History. In 1860, Slavery was alive an well throughout the World. It’s still very alive today. The Democrat Left has never been against Slavery. Their goal has always been Government control of the Work force. The Republican Right has always been for Corporate control of the Work Force. Occasionally, we have had a Politician who is for The People. In my lifetime, there was Ike, JFK, Reagan, and Trump with a few, very few, Congressmen over the years. America First started with the TEA Party. President Trump took it to the next level with the concept of America First and focused on empowering the American People. This has scared the Globalist Democrat / RINO Uniparty to death. How dare The People even consider breaking the bonds of slavery and exercise their God Given Rights to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

President Trump expanded the US Economy and made it possible for more people to work and build a business. Prosperous People are not inclined to vote Democrat, so Godless Communist Democrat Liberal Losers created the Covid Hoax. They destroyed Small Business and put Millions of Americans back on the Democrat Welfare Plantation. Without work, People have no choice but to become slaves to the Government in a Big Government Society.

The Left has always been pro-slavery. The only thing that changes is whom they seek to enslave.

That is a good summary. Of course, the large corporations have joined the leftist pro-slavery movement. Discrimination against whites is rampant.

First thing I say if an argument is brewing:..’How heavy are your chains’?
Mine were of a certain heft but they were short and tied to a whipping post.
In time as the decades past they became a part of me ,they even became a source of comfort. I knew I could always depend on my chains. But then one day they were gone. I got rid of them, today I feel a glorious sense of freedom from worry. My fathers people suffered immensely under the yolk of oppression and servitude by a tyrannical neighboring nation for over 700 years ! We now and always will remember this.
But we do not hold that country’s people or my own ‘whipping post’ accountable for any of that, Today I choose not to reclaim those chains ,better still to move ahead without animosity or regrets.
How heavy are your chains and how long will you hold on to them?
