Slavery Ain't Diddly

Today is Tuesday, 13 April 2010.

Spewing hate yesterday on CNN, Haley Barbour, Republican Governor of Mississippi since 2004, said, in regard to the Virginia Republican governor’s proclamation of Confederate History Month, which ignored slavery: “To me, it's a sort of feeling that it's a nit. That it is not significant, that it's not a – it's trying to make a big deal out of something doesn't amount to diddly.”

Well, Hatey Barber is just promoting and marketing to his fellow neo-Nazis, and, besides, he hasn’t said anything outrageous enough in a while to get on TV, so his ego addiction is out of control.

I’m so tired of pointing this out: mass theft, mass rape, and mass murder do amount to “diddly”, unless one is a white supremacist, with values deriving from the Ninth Circle of Hell.

For those who, like Barboor and the anti-Semite Patrick Buchanan, claim the Civil War wasn’t about slavery, dig this excerpt from the Mississippi declaration of secession:

"Our position is thoroughly identified with the institution of slavery - the greatest material interest of the world. Its labor supplies the product, which constitutes by far the largest and most important portions of commerce of the earth. These products are peculiar to the climate verging on the tropical regions, and by an imperious law of nature, none but the black race can bear exposure to the tropical sun. These products have become necessities of the world, and a blow at slavery is a blow at commerce and civilization."

Or how about the “Cornerstone Speech” of “C.S.A.” “Vice President” Alexander Stephens, who proclaimed that the “cornerstone” of the treasonous “government” "rest[ed] upon the great truth that the negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery—subordination to the superior race—is his natural and normal condition. This, our new government, is the first, in the history of the world, based upon this great physical, philosophical, and moral truth”.

‘Tis fitting to mention this on the birth date of the man who, when he wrote “…all men are created equal …”, actually meant “all Aryan males with net worths substantially above average”. _______________________________________________


Yet another study finds that children who are spanked are more likely to be aggressive toward other children than children who aren’t spanked.

If parents teach by their behaviour that child abuse is “a good thing”, then naturally their children will tend to believe that abuse of others is a proper life perspective and practice.

As adults, they project those “traditional family values” into action in the wider world, resulting in drive-bys, wife-beating, My Lais, and affirming the propriety of nuclear genocide.
