HONORING FREDERICK DOUGLASS


diane_tomlinson_2

On this the first day of Black History month it would only be proper to honor one of the greatest Americans ever with his own words; words that we here try to live by in the spirit that this Human Being meant them.

    speaking of black history

    • Fredrick Schwartz, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H. [Journ.] Says:

      Wait aren’t you the guy who said America wasn’t a country, but a continent? Anyway, you can ruminate on that one in your down time. First of the picture of the man in that link is not the slaveowner. Worse for you Bill John Punch in 1640 was forced by law into slavery for running away from indentured servitude. Prior to that Captain Nathaniel Bass was paid 40 pounds of tobacco a month for the labor of a Negro servant named Brase whose labor was sold to Lady Temperance Yeardley in 1625. Of course all those owners were white. But since you have stated many times that what happened back then doesn’t matter in modern times why repeat a lie to make some irrational idiot believe that slavery was an institution run by blacks in the New World when it was not? Did some Free blacks own slaves? Yes. Was the first slaveowner in the United States of America a black man? No because that would have been impossible because the United States of America was not formally a nation until 1789 and by then there were nearyl three quarters of a million Negro slaves on the continent of North America. QED.

      And another thing Mr Logan there was no photography in 1655. And you see this is the sort of stupid thing that right wing bigots like you will fall for. Just because you have a business doesn’t mean you are intelligent; I will hammer that into you every chance I get Billy boy and I will get plenty of chances. You are not a thinker you are a doer. But keep trying to be an intellectual and I will keep pointing and laughing at you standing there with egg on your face.

        yeah history = right wing bigotry to dumbed down,useful idiots. who think they are dead and demons with hooves ya gotta love the insanity. LOL x a zillion

        Johnson ultimately won the case, and not only did he get his servant back, but Casor became Johnson’s slave for life as Johnson had said he was. This officially made Johnson the first legal slave owner in the British colonies that would eventually become the United States. (There were other slaves before this in the Americas, many actually, just not ones that were legal in the British colonies under common law).

        The judge’s decision on the matter was announced as follows:

        This daye Anthony Johnson negro made his complaint to the court against Mr. Robert Parker and declared that hee deteyneth his servant John Casor negro under the pretence that said negro was a free man. The court seriously consideringe and maturely weighing the premisses, doe fynde that the saide Mr. Robert Parker most unjustly keepeth the said Negro from Anthony Johnson his master … It is therefore the Judgement of the Court and ordered That the said John Casor Negro forthwith returne unto the service of the said master Anthony Johnson, And that Mr. Robert Parker make payment of all charges in the suit.

        About 7 years later, Virginia made this practice legal for everyone, in 1661, by making it state law for any free white, black, or Indian, to be able to own slaves, along with indentured servants, as they’d been able to have before.

      • Fredrick Schwartz, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H. [Journ.] Says:

        Doesn’t matter what Johnson won; he wasn’t the first person in the colonies to hold a person in slavery. I thought we’d covered this?

      • neocon01 Says:

        yeah right freddy this from an ass fucking homo, who thinks he id dead, blogging from hell and works with a gumdrop computer and a boss with hooves…REALLY FREDDY??
        talk about laughing….OMG what a bunch of fucking left wing LOONS

      • Fredrick Schwartz, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H. [Journ.] Says:

        You’re seriously low on intellectual ammo aren’t ya? I am who I am and that’s all what I am. I’m not ashamed of who I am. I don’t have to conform to your standards because who are you to say how I should live. Nobody. I don'[t work for you and you don’t pay my bills. So I think you need to take a chill pill and calm down before you bust an artery or something.

    • sarahbloch Says:

      Okay sorry I was laughing hysterically that the dumb cracker at CofCC thought this was a photo of Johnson from 1655!

      • neocon01 Says:

        dumb cracker? bigotry much?
        hmmm some of the ghetto racist trash is rubbing off on you. You have been swallowing way too much black dong.

      • sarahbloch Says:

        I don’t think a white woman calling a white man a dumb cracker is bigotry as much as it a statement of the obvious!

      • sarahbloch Says:

        Says the man who hasn’t been blown this century. Sad.

      • neocon01 Says:

        sure it is especially when you are screwing a neegrow

      • sarahbloch Says:

    Two good things about freddy

      4. He was a feminist
      5. He was a multiculturalist
      6. He was for Peace above all else.

      • neocon01 Says:

        Born in Maryland in 1818, his master’s wife taught Douglass to read at a young age, and Douglass shared this knowledge with other slaves, encouraging them to read the New Testament and interpret Jesus Christ’s message of equality.

      • Fredrick Schwartz, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H. [Journ.] Says:

        A message you have forgotten . . .

      • neocon01 Says:

        one you never learned..

  3. neocon01 Says:

    Did You Know?
    “Between speaking fees, investments and income from presidential appointments, Frederick Douglass’ was able to mass $300,000 in savings–an equivalent of more than $10 million dollars today. We shouldn’t ENVY those earning $250,000 per year. We should EMULATE them. That’s how jobs are created.”

    African Americans originally came to America unwillingly, having been stolen and sold by Muslim slave-catchers in Africa to Dutch traders journeying to America in 1619.

    The Three-Fifths Clause dealt only with representation and not the worth of any individual.

    In 1857, a Democratically controlled Supreme Court delivered the Dred Scott decision, declaring that blacks were not persons or citizens but instead were property and therefore had no rights.
    The 13th Amendment to abolish slavery was voted for by 100% of the Republicans in congress and by 23% of the Democrats in congress.
    Not one Democrat either in the House or the Senate voted for the 14th amendment declaring that former slaves were full citizens of the state in which they lived and were therefore entitled to all the rights and privileges of any other citizen in that state.

    Not a single one of the 56 Democrats in Congress voted for the 15th amendment that granted explicit voting rights to black Americans.

    In 1866 Democrats formed the Ku Klux Klan to pave the way for Democrats to regain control in the elections.
    George Wallace was a Democrat.
    Bull Connor was a Democrat.

    In the 19th century, Democrats prevented Black Americans from going to public school.
    In the 20th and 21st century Democrats prevented Black Americans trapped in failing schools from choosing a better school. In fact Democrats voted against the bill by 99%.

    Jim Crow laws, poll taxes, grandfather clauses, Literacy tests, white only primaries, and physical violence all came from the Democratic Party.
    Between 1882 and 1964, 4,743 individuals were lynched. 3,446 blacks and 1,297 whites. Republicans often led the efforts to pass federal anti-lynching laws and Democrats successfully blocked those bills.
    Though both the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 were signed into law under Democrat President, Lyndon Johnson, it was the Republicans in Congress who made it possible in both cases – not to overlook the fact that the heart of both bills came from the work of Republican President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
    In the 108th Congress, when Republicans proposed a permanent extension of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, it was opposed by the Congressional Black Caucus (composed only of Democrats).
    Following the Civil War, Frederick Douglass received Presidential appointments from Republican Presidents Ulysses Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes, and James A. Garfield. Democratic President Grover Cleveland removed Frederick Douglas from office but Republican President Benjamin Harrison reappointed him.
    Very few today know that in 1808 Congress abolished the slave trade. Although slavery still had not been abolished in all the states, things definitely were moving in the right direction.
    By 1820, most of the Founding Fathers were dead and Thomas Jefferson’ party (the Democratic Party) had become the majority party in Congress.
    In 1789, Congress passed the Northwest Ordinance that prohibited slavery in a federal territory. In 1820, the Democratic Congress passed the Missouri Compromise and reversed that earlier policy, permitting slavery in almost half of the federal territories.
    In 1850, Democrats in Congress passed the “Fugitive Slave Law”. That law required Northerners to return escaped slaves back into slavery or else pay huge fines.
    Because the “Fugitive Slave Law” allowed Free Blacks to be carried into slavery, this law was disastrous for blacks in the North; and as a consequence of the atrocious provisions of this Democratic law, some 20,000 blacks in the North left the United States and fled to Canada.
    The “Underground Railroad” reached the height of its activity during this period, helping thousands of slaves escape from slavery in the South all the way out of the United States and into Canada – simply to escape the reach of the Democrats’ Fugitive Slave Law.
    In 1854, the Democratically controlled Congress passed another law strengthening slavery: the Kansas-Nebraska Act. Even though Democrats in Congress had already expanded the federal territories in which slavery was permitted through their passage of the Missouri Compromise, they had retained a ban on slavery in the Kansas-Nebraska territory. But through the Kansas-Nebraska Act, Democrats repealed those earlier restrictions, thus allowing slavery to be introduced into parts of the new territory where it previously had been forbidden.
    Following the passage of these pro-slavery laws in Congress, in May of 1854, a number of the anti-slavery Democrats in Congress – along with some anti-slavery members from other political parties, including the Whigs, Free Soilers, and Emancipationists, formed a new political party to fight slavery and secure equal civil rights for black Americans. The name of that party? They called it the Republican Party because they wanted to return to the principles of freedom and equality first set forth in the governing documents of the Republic before pro-slavery members of Congress had perverted those original principles.
    One of the founders of the Republican was U.S. Senator Charles Sumner. In 1856, Sumner gave a two day long speech in the U.S. Senate against slavery. Following that speech, Democratic Representative Preston Brooks from South Carolina came from the House, across the Rotunda of the Capitol, and over to the Senate where he literally clubbed down Sumner on the floor of the Senate, knocked him unconscious, and beat him almost to death. According to the sources of that day, many Democrats thought that Sumner’s clubbing was deserved, and it even amused them. What happened to Democrat Preston Brooks following his vicious attack on Sumner? He was proclaimed a southern hero and easily re-elected to Congress.
    In 1856, the Republican Party entered its first Presidential election, running Republican John C. Fremont against Democrat James Buchanan. In that election, the Republican Party issued its first-ever Party platform. It was a short document with only nine planks in the platform, but significantly, six of the nine planks set forth bold declarations of equality and civil rights for African Americans based on the principles of the Declaration of Independence.
    In 1856, the Democratic platform took a position strongly defending slavery and warned: “All efforts of the abolitionists… are calculated to lead to the most alarming and dangerous consequences and all such efforts have an inevitable tendency to diminish the happiness of the people”.
    It is worth noting that for over a century and a half, Democrats often have taken a position that some human life is disposable – as they did in the Dred Scott decision. In that instance, a black individual was not a life, it was property; and an individual could do with his property as he wished. Today, Democrats have largely taken that same position on unborn human life – that an unborn human is disposable property to do with as one wishes.
    African Americans were the victims of this disposable property ideology a century and a half ago, and still are today. Consider: although 12 percent of the current population is African American, almost 35 percent of all abortions are performed on African Americans. In fact, over the last decade, for every 100 African American live births, there were 53 abortions of African American babies. Democrats have encouraged this; and although black Americans are solidly pro-life with almost two-thirds opposing abortion on demand, a number of recent votes in Congress reveals that Democrats hold exactly the opposite view, with some 80 percent of congressional Democrats being almost rabidly pro-abortion and consistently voting against protections for innocent unborn human life.

      Well done Mr Logan you’ve done well cutting and pasting history into the comments section of this blog. Tomorrow maybe we’ll make an Excel spreadsheet! Anyway, every bit of what you copied and pasted is true. The Democratic Party from its birth to 1968 was filled with some of the most bigoted racist white men and women ever to walk the face of the earth. Many Democratic Party public servants, especially in the South, were members of the Ku Klux Klan. I know the history, but unless you have a time machine let’s look at what happened in the years from 1968 to 2016? Or I have an even better deal for you! If we can blame the Democratic Party for all those ills today can a black man still blame currently living white people for slavery? [Note to Sarah– I will only accept coin of the realm in payment. You will not ply me with one of your husband’s magnificent dinners.–F.S.]

      • sarahbloch Says:

        Stop gloating it’s not midnight yet.

      • neocon01 Says:

        it is what you asked for facts….you are too stupid to read more than two paragraphs, so for now the cut and paste will have to do. you know KISS for ya.

      • Fredrick Schwartz, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H. [Journ.] Says:

        Okay I’ll ask again if the Democratic party should be held accountable in 2016 for all the ill they caused over the past 160 years prior to the Civil Rights and Voting Rights Acts; should white Americans who are descended from slave owners be held accountable for the horrors of slavery? You’ve set up the hypocrisy of a double standard here. Being silent means you know you’re wrong and have to eat one very bad sandwich or the other! Here’s an analogy: “Do you still beat your wife if she won’t pee on you Mr Logan?” I haven’t laughed this hard since Falwell died. Do you see why you should just stay in right wing chat rooms with other low IQ people?

      • sarahbloch Says:

        Now that was just mean, Fred. You know he lives in a fantasy of his own superiority and you just used it against him. Classic, hilarious but mean.

      • neocon01 Says:

        However, black slave owners continued to thrive in the United States.

        By 1830 there were 3,775 black families living in the South who owned black slaves. By 1860 there were about 3,000 slaves owned by black households in the city of New Orleans alone.

      • Fredrick Schwartz, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H. [Journ.] Says:

        And those slave owners were wrong like all the others. Slavery was an immoral profit driven sin against Human Beings.

        love it when one retard slaps another on the back for a supposed gotcha…kind of the blind leading the blind concept.
