#NeverForget The Aryan Jesus in Nazi Germany: The Bible and the Holocaust

"We must learn to regard people less in light of what they do or omit to do, and more in the light of what they suffer."

-Dietrich Bonhoeffer Image
"If it has come about that today The Black Christ; has to be led into the field AGAINST The White Christ; by a young black poet, than a deep cleft in the church of Jesus Christ is indicated."

-- Dietrich Bonhoeffer

The PRRI survey is fascinating, as their surveys always are.

The survey asked what percentage of each group thought the way of life has changed mostly for the better since the 1950’s. Results:

Democrats - 63%
Independents - 48%
Republicans - 29%…
Perspectives/experiences probably come into play here. The 1950s were a simpler time and many people may think about Leave It To Beaver and John Wayne.

To me, that era meant people like me not being able to vote, stay in hotels, attend good schools or drink from water fountains.
One of the unfortunately aspects of human nature is we tend to not think much about or worry much about things that don’t affect us directly or affect those we know directly.

It’s not even malicious in its intent. It’s just how we are. Self-focused.

When Black Meant Republican

By @ChrisALadd

It’s easy to forget now, but just a few generations ago African Americans overwhelmingly identified themselves as Republicans.

In the fall of 1895 Atlanta put on one in a series of “International Expositions” designed to highlight its progress in recovering from the war. Racial tensions had been growing since southerners, at the end of Reconstruction, began instituting Jim Crow laws.
The organizers of the Exposition invited prominent black leader Booker T. Washington to give a keynote address. The position he took in that speech was a calculated gamble. Image

My Name Is John Punch: I am the first LEGAL #racialslave in human history.

I do not remember much about my past. That said, I do remember I wass born in the most beautiful place in the world —Africa.

I don't recall where in Africa.

Maybe Cameroon, Gabon or the Ivory Coast.

Black Conservatism is NOT Lily-White Conservatism

"Authentic black conservatism has always had the fundamental and explicit goal of opposing white supremacy."

— Kareim Oliphant

If Burkean conservatism is a response to the French Revolution, then African conservatism is also a response. It emerges out of, and in response to the shock of both Colonialism and The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade — the largest forced migration in history.…
The LARGEST, long-distance, coerced migration in human history — The Atlantic slave trade is the backdrop, for the dissimilar attitudes, values, unique differences, between, Anglo conservatism, and what is referred to as African or "black conservatism".

"Racism doesn't exist in America".

— Rep. #MarjorieTaylorGreene

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene on what's wrong with Black and Hispanic men.


It's not a black/hispanic problem. It's an American problem (global problem).

And, it's also not just an individual problem.

“Fighting” racism; is racism?

Documenting the dissimilar impact (both indirect and direct)of racism, on black life; that's racism?

That's a country on its way towards Nazism.
“The answer to racism is not #colorblindness. The answer to racism is to embrace a worldview that says diversity is beautiful.”
“[Color-blindness] is an attempt to avoid racism by removing its source, color. Sadly, the implications of this attempt actually feed the very thing it is seeking to starve.” — Pastor Kyle J. Howard #tcot #maga #tlot #blackconservatives Image

“This is what underpins the far-right's endless whataboutery and tendency to equate slavery in different contexts across different millenia. The goal is to empty the history of the transatlantic slave trade of its unique racial element and thus remove its legacy as a determinant"
"False equivalence and an endless dishonest minimisation are characteristics of both Racial slavery denialism and Holocaust denialism."
“The system of racialised perpetual hereditary chattel slavery that was developed in the New World by Europeans has NO EQUIVALENT in history."

Rare video 📹: Black Wall Street. #BlackWallStreet #BlackHistoryMonth
#BlackWallStreet is a very serious reminder of the dissimilar history African American businesses had to endure, endured, things, that most of "The Newly Arrived" would've never survived. And, despite our history: Today, they ask "Why can't you just be like the good Asians".
You could have built to the moon 🌚 and watch it all disappear, all in one night, all in one night! The legal beneficiaries of our pain, being falsely compared to us. Centuries of working for free; due to slavery,

And, now, this. After all that — and we were supposedly "free".

@CoachFelecia From time-to-time, ethnic personalities similar to that of #AndyNgo have appeared in right-wing movements ..

You just have to look for them.

These "ethnic" individuals aren't there to discover the truth!
@CoachFelecia They are their to provide a service. That is their value.

What is the service? They are weaponized to confuse the public while empowering "lily-white" delusions about black people.
@CoachFelecia These individuals...

Scott Atlas: The Last Word… #tcot
“First, I have been shocked at the enormous power of the government, to unilaterally decree, to simply close businesses and schools by edict, restrict personal movement, mandate behavior, and eliminate our most basic freedoms, without any end and little accountability.”
“Second, I remain surprised at the acceptance by the American people of draconian rules, restrictions, and unprecedented mandates, even those that are arbitrary, destructive, and wholly unscientific.”

If you've been wanting to meet an automated Reagan conservative who worries about our future by spamming Twitter with links to poorly-source articles about "voter fraud" on a website you've never heard of, @keichri is the account for you. #FridayFeeling

cc: @ZellaQuixote
Almost all (98.5%) of @keichri's recent tweets are automated via dlvr(dot)it. This account has apparently dabbled in automation before, although at least two of the apps it was using have subsequently been shut down (erased7812941 and erased13330229).
The primary mission of @keichri appears to be to promote various right-wing websites, usually obscure ones. Almost all of its tweets since March 2020 link to speakingaboutnews(dot)com, with a previous three and a half year binge of spamming links to conservativeread(dot)com.

Fellow Patriots,

We all know that Iran stands as an existential threat to American freedom and democracy in the Middle East. Yet the Deep State—led by Obama, AOC, and other Islamic Marxists—will do whatever it takes to prevent our liberation of the country. #tcot
This is why I've started a new crowd-funded project:

We Invade Iran!

Our goal is to reach $7 billion, which should cover the cost of a tactical nuclear bombardment, followed by a full-scale ground invasion—led by us, the American people.
If you've been paying attention to the Fake News media, you just don't know the truth about Iran. The freedom-loving Iranian people overwhelmingly support a devastating atomic strike on their country—especially if they know that it's funded by Americans, and not the DC Swamp.

Just finished reading all 211 pages of Mary Trump’s book, “Too Much And Never Enough: How My Family Created The World’s Most Dangerous Man.” Folks, we have a psychotic sociopath in the White House. This book reveals where al of this evil originated from. What she lays out is 1/3
a devastating indictment of his parents and how this uneducated fool has been able to thrive while massively failing. I am even more committed to seeing him lose in 100 days. There is no way in hell he can be allowed four more years. I read this book in two sittings over 2/3
the last two days. A real takedown of a sick and demented man. #FireTrumpInNovember #MAGA #TCOT 3/3

I understand 100% why many Christians and pro-life people prefer the GOP over the Democratic Party, which has been owned by the abortion industry.

What I DON’T understand is being against abortion but being totally cool with, like, almost every other form of evil.
I’m not that sure how well it nets out to shrug at white nationalism, be fine with total disregard for the law, corruption up the wazoo, hugging on dictators, pissing on allies, being purposefully cruel toward immigrant children - BUT - being pro-life.
It’s the moral equivalent of getting an extra large big boy burger with large fries and extra mayo - but priding yourself with washing it all down with a Diet Coke. Because nutrition matters to you.

I don’t think it counts if abortion is the ONLY form of evil that bothers you.

1. It's amazing that, even after all we've learned, so many people dont understand the magnitude of what Russia did in its disinformation campaign.

And most important, Americans don't get how their gullibility and participation were essential to making it work, then and now...
2...We are under cyberattack by a foreign enemy. It is the first attack on America to be largely ignored by our government. The magnitude and significance of it cannot be overstated.

So, I am going to give you all the data to understand...
3...this thread may be attacked. Whenever I write about Russia, they are. In 2016, when I wrote about Russian disinformation being pushed onto the internet by an account @TEN_GOP my reporting from the intel world slammed here and elsewhere online, as well as by WashPost....
