HISTORY, CIVICS, AND PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY PART 1

HISTORY, CIVICS, AND PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY PENSACOLA’S FIVE-FLAGS DISPLAYS

A MAP ABOUT WHITE HYPOCRISY

This is a 2013 map of “hate groups” designed by the Southern Poverty Law Center.  The Southern Poverty Law Center’s most recent “Hate Map” is designed differently–maybe its members saw the hypocrisy I’ll soon point out, and corrected it.

The Southern Poverty Law Center isn’t nearly as radical and destructive as the American Civil Liberties Union–though it sometimes allies itself with the notorious ACLU.

Still, the Southern Poverty Law Center is no fan of free speech–and it calls for the censorship of anything politically incorrect (or even not necessarily politically correct).

And the Southern Poverty Law Center is almost always biased toward the political left, and toward political correctness.

There are some exceptions–the Southern Poverty Law Center lists the Jewish Defense League as a hate group.  And the Jewish Defense League is definitely a hate group–though it’s politically incorrect to list it as such.

And the Southern Poverty Law Center lists the New Black Panther Party as a hate group.  The New Black Panther Party is so hateful that members of the original Black Panther Party have unsuccessfully filed lawsuits against it, numerous times, for using the name of their organization.  Nevertheless, it’s politically incorrect to list any Black supremacist group as a hate group.

But the Southern Poverty Law Center deems many groups “hate groups” which wouldn’t be considered hate groups by most people.  Most of these groups are labeled “hate groups” by the Southern Poverty Law Center because they oppose homosexuality, on religious grounds.  And however anyone views homosexuality, no one can deny that homosexuality is condemned in the Torah (Judaism), the Bible (Christianity), and the Qur’an (Islam).  Don’t Jews, Christians, and Muslims have the rights to freedom of religion and freedom of speech?  The Southern Poverty Law Center doesn’t think so.

White hypocrisy is synonymous with White supremacy.

And White hypocrisy infuriates me, most of the time.

But sometimes White hypocrisy amuses me.

And looking at the 2013 “hate group” map above, I couldn’t help but laugh at the blatant White hypocrisy exhibited in the map itself.

The Southern Poverty Law Center primarily fights White supremacist groups.  But the Southern Poverty Law Center is primarily staffed by Whites–and always has been.

It’s similar to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, in this regard.  The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People was established by White people who didn’t initially allow any Colored people to run the organization supposedly established for them.

It’s even similar to John Brown, in this regard.  John Brown was a White abolitionist who was responsible for the brutal murders of at least ten people–at least five of whom were unarmed, one of whom was a freed slave, and only one of whom was a slaveholder.  White Abolitionist John Brown led Whites and Blacks on an unsuccessful raid of the armory at Harper’s Ferry, Virginia (the ill-conceived plan was to confiscate the weapons stored there, then use them to liberate slaves–though with no regard for the lives of any White men, women, or children).  But John Brown only allowed other Whites to serve as his lieutenants in the storied raid–because he distrusted the Blacks whose cause he supposedly championed.

The 2013 “hate group” map designed by the Southern Poverty Law Center–which is primarily staffed by Whites, and always has been–shows which states supposedly have the most “hate groups” (and which have the least).  The map is in black and white.  And the darkest states on the map supposedly have the most “hate groups”.  This map could have been in color–the best color arguably being red.  And it’s not likely that the Southern Poverty Law Center avoided using red, in consideration of Native Americans.  It’s likely that the Southern Poverty Law Center avoided using red, in consideration of Communists.

What is certain is that hate groups are considered bad, by most reasonable people–just as love groups (like the colorful bands of flower children of old) are considered good, by most reasonable people.

Only one of the states in the Southern Poverty Law Center’s 2013 “hate group” map is white.  This means that Hawaii is the only state that is free of any “hate groups”–and is therefore the only state that is good.

Conversely, Idaho, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Delaware, West Virginia, Tennessee, and Mississippi are almost black.  This means that these states are rife with “hate groups”–and are therefore bad.

And Montana, Vermont, and Arkansas are black.  This means that these states are bursting at the seams with “hate groups”–and are therefore the worst.

So the totally good state is white.

And the totally bad states are black.

White is good.

Black is bad.

So suggests the Southern Poverty Law Center, in its 2013 “hate groups” map.

The Southern Poverty Law Center–a civil rights group staffed primarily by Whites, since its inception.

Sometimes White hypocrisy amuses me.

WORD 2 WHITES

What’s the difference between White hypocrisy and White supremacy?

WHO’S AFRAID OF THE TRUTH?

As of today, May 19, 2017, Mitch Landrieu has finally completed the destruction of all four of the Confederate memorial monuments in New Orleans.

He has done this without the consent of the people of Greater New Orleans, Louisiana at all–he hasn’t even allowed them to vote on it.

Using taxpayers’ money, Mayor Landrieu has employed henchmen among the firefighters of New Orleans (read Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury) to destroy these American historical monuments–all wearing masks and bulletproof vests, and all with the protection of police snipers, also employed by Landrieu (read 1984, by George Orwell).

In a private speech Mayor Landrieu gave his cronies today–both Democratic and Republican–he said, “We cannot be afraid of the truth.”

Who’s afraid of the truth?

The four Black, Democratic mayors who preceded Mitch Landrieu were not afraid of the truth.

Mitch Landrieu’s father, Mayor Moon Landrieu, was not afraid of the truth.

The citizens of Greater New Orleans–of all races and ethnic groups–were not afraid of the truth.

But Mayor Mitch Landrieu was certainly afraid of the truth.

Why, he was so afraid of the truth that he completely censored it, erased it so that no one would ever be able to know or understand it.

No tourists would ever be able to ask who Jefferson Davis was, who P.G.T. Beauregard was, who Robert E. Lee was–or even what gave rise to a local skirmish between Democrats and Republicans.

No tourists would ever be able to ask what the Confederate States of America was–how it was established, and why–and why it fought a defensive war against the United States of America to maintain its independence.

No tourists would ever be able to ask why the United States waged this war against the Confederate States, in the first place–and why the United States engaged in a brutal occupation of the former Confederate States, in which all citizens of the former Confederate States of America were denied their constitutional rights under the United States Constitution for twelve years.

No tourists would ever be able to ask what impact this era of American history would have on the future of the United States of America.

No tourists would ever be able to ask any questions about American history in New Orleans at all, because no tourists would know what questions to ask.

No tourists would ever see any evidence of this history.

No tourists would ever be able to learn the truth.

No schoolchildren ever would, either.

No future citizens of Greater New Orleans ever would, either.

Yes, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu was certainly afraid of the truth.

Just as Republican South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley was.

Just as Republican Alabama Governor Robert Bentley was.

Just as Republican Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward was.

Just as Republican Escambia County Commissioners Doug Underhill, Steven Barry, Wilson Robertson, and Grover C. Robinson IV were.

Just as Democratic Escambia County Commissioner Lumon May was.

Just as every state and local politician in the Southern United States was–and still is.

Because all politicians know that truth is something to be avoided, at all costs.

All politicians know that their power can only be maintained as long as their constituents are kept in a state of ignorance–as long as their constituents are blissfully unaware of the truth.

Who’s afraid of the truth?
