“Racism Costs Everyone” author will speak here

Click above to watch Heather McGhee’s TED Talk, “Racism has a cost for everyone,” on May 8, 2020.
We found both her message and perspective very insightful. We hope individual community members, book clubs, schools, churches and clubs consider The Sum of Us for their next book.
— PATH President/CEO Christy Connolly
The Warrenton-based PATH Foundation will host a March 10 virtual discussion with Heather McGhee, author of the new book, The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Prosper Together.

The conversation will focus on Ms. McGhee’s research and process of writing the book. She also will answer audience questions.

The 40-year-old political commentator and strategist earned a bachelor’s degree from Yale University and a law degree from the University of California at Berkeley.

PATH has made complimentary copies of Ms. McGhee’s book available at Fauquier, Rappahannock and Culpeper public libraries, as well as at The Open Book in Warrenton.

Warrenton resident John McCarthy, PATH’s former chairman, will moderate the discussion, starting at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 10.

Sorry, libs.

Race Card: DECLINED.

It is maxed out.

Proclamation of Amnesty and Pardon Granted to All Persons of European Descent

Whereas, Europeans kept my forebears in bondage some three centuries toiling without pay,

Whereas, Europeans ignored the human rights pledges of the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution,

Whereas, the Emancipation Proclamation, the Thirteenth and Fourteenth Amendments meant little more than empty words,

Therefore, Americans of European ancestry are guilty of great crimes against my ancestors and their progeny.

But, in the recognition Europeans themselves have been victims of various and sundry human rights violations to wit: the Norman Conquest, the Irish Potato Famine, Decline of the Hapsburg Dynasty, Napoleonic and Czarist adventurism, and gratuitous insults and speculations about the intelligence of Europeans of Polish descent,

I, Walter E. Williams, do declare full and general amnesty and pardon to all persons of European ancestry, for both their own grievances, and those of their forebears, against my people.

Therefore, from this day forward Americans of European ancestry can stand straight and proud knowing they are without guilt and thus obliged not to act like damn fools in their relationships with Americans of African ancestry.

Walter E. Williams, Gracious and Generous Grantor

Dr. Walter E. Williams stood as one of the great thinkers in modern times. Whether it was economics, politics, history, cultural and social issues, Dr. Williams brought forth common sense and relevance in his syndicated columns. And, he did so with humor, as evident by his Proclamation displayed above. Read it along with his blog post for proper context.,-liberals-and-blacks/

Jeffersonia American - ".........first and foremost, without faith, there is no hope." That's your opinion and nothing more.

The rest of your posting, blah,blah,blah, same old same old run-on garbage.

Don't mind me if I don't respond to you in the future, it's a waste of my time.
Jeffersonian American · March 1, 2021 at 8:01 am
Mr. House, first and foremost, without faith, there is no hope.

Furthermore, based on your continued CONFEDERAPHOBIA expressed in this forum, you are in desperate need of an honest American history lesson. I've provided some useful documented references in the past in this forum, but perhaps you didn't read them. I've provided a few more below that I hope you will read and carefully consider.

The very same Principles of 1776, championed by the one-third of the American colonists who believed our Natural Law Rights and our right to self-determination were ordained by God as witnessed during the First American Secession from the British Crown, were also the same "Principles of '76" as enshrined in our Declaration of Independence which animated the War for Southern Independence as championed by the Confederate States of America 85 years later during the Second American Secession from Washington, D.C., which was a response by the Southern states to the massive rupture of our American political system by 1860 over a Union which, by then, had become unworkable with the Confederate States of America fighting for Constitutional Government as bequeathed to us by our founding fathers. Furthermore, “The War Between the States” is a more correct terminology to describe the great conflict, not a "Civil War," which is defined as when two or more sides fight for control of the national government. Southern leaders like Jefferson Davis and Robert E. Lee were not fighting for control of Washington, D.C., in 1861, any more than Benjamin Franklin and George Washington were fighting for control of the British Crown in 1776. The South simply wanted to be left alone- with peaceful, legal secession as allowed under our Constitutional Government. The 1861-1865 war was waged over control of territory and resources; it was a war of tariffs; it was in every respect an immoral and unnecessary war whose best solution would have been a peaceful, negotiated settlement forming an alternative union of states. It was between two constitutionally-sanctioned governments that the war was waged. The Confederate States of America wanted to leave the northern Union states intact and its United States Government untrammeled. Southern states voted after careful deliberations in those states to form an alternative union to maintain a purer form of Constitutional government as bequeathed by our Founding Fathers. Slavery itself as an institution was disappearing around Europe and the rest of the civilized world- in all but a few pockets which remain around the globe today. Many of the institutions of slavery died a natural death in the civilized world by the 1880's, and many scholars of today contend it would have suffered the same fate in the years following 1861 in North America. And yet the irony is, even after Lee surrendered the Army of Northern Virginia at Appomattox in 1865, slavery was still legal in the District of Columbia.

Our founders were outspoken in their desire to avoid creating a massive, highly centralized national government controlling our everyday lives- and everything they warned us about has come to pass- so we are still very much living with the consequences of the War Between the States to this very day and we ought to study and teach it truthfully and learn from it.

(CONTINUED) On the topic of race relations, ironically, the very society that was best equipped to absorb and assimilate blacks sold into slavery as well as free blacks living in the Americas since at least the 1500s, was the American South, which during Mr. Lincoln's War to Prevent Southern Independence- the bloodiest conflict of the 19th century- which sought to destroy and subjugate the American South to regain total and continue the unfair economic control of its vast resources and territory- merely to preserve a Northeastern Industrial Empire. As a result of the Union victory after four long years of horrific sacrifice and deaths of a million Americans and permanent disfigurement and physical maiming of another million more Americans- our original constitutional republic of the founders and our U.S. Constitution was destroyed and replaced by Mr. Lincoln's Empire. The American South- not the thoroughly racist North- prior to President Abraham Lincoln, was a thoroughly integrated society, and represented the best possibility to assimilate recent black generations sold into slavery or otherwise arriving free from Africa that were one, two or more generations removed from tribal existence; and that southern American society was brutally subjugated and replaced afterward by the hostile Federal Union Army Occupation that was Reconstruction, which imposed the much hated "Jim Crow Laws" across the former Confederate States of America- the long standing racist, Northern Black Codes which were imposed across the American South that would stand for another century. But all of these forms of racism were not Southern in origin. The thoroughly racist Abraham Lincoln and Northern States sought to impose their worldview upon their fellow Americans which now included free blacks as well. Slavery was a national blight in 1861, not just a Southern problem. (CONTINUED NEXT POSTING)

(CONTINUED) While the PATH Foundation and Radical Black Lives Matter/ANTIFA Left are perfectly fine hosting this one-sided discussion on race and the Black Lives Matter Indoctrinations In American History- instead of their continued efforts to marinate our local community in their common themes of hatred for America as founded based on our Natural Law Rights which ended a thousand or more years of serfdom, feudalism and yes- even the evil institution of slavery which did not originate in the American South- one can always hope they will finance and promote other more intellectually honest lectures and sources on our American History for our current community to reinforce the Christian teaching so desperately needed today that we are all God's Children. Or are we condemned by PATH and others to only be forced to continue to marinate in the racial agitations of Black Lives Matter lectures while conveniently erasing all mention and discussion from history, for example, the names of the documented 952 Freemen (free blacks) who owned slaves by 1830 in Virginia? What about the over 70,000 documented Black Confederates- both slaves and freemen who remained loyal to their native states and homes during their valiant service in the Confederate States Armies in 1861-65 as both soldiers and laborers found throughout the thoroughly integrated CSA Army, and who received the same pay as their white Confederate brothers-in-arms? Not so in the Union Army- which was completely segregated and whose Black soldiers earned approximately half the pay of their white Union Army counterparts, etc. The lessons from the period are far more intricate and complex than the often Spectacular Lies being spread by Revisionist Historians and "Advocacy Scholars" today. And I view the descendants of Black Confederates I have joyously met here in Fauquier County and elsewhere, who served honorably along with my (white) Great-Grandfather in the Confederate States Army during that massive American rupture of our political system as my Christian Brothers as well. I know their inherent goodness and decency comes from our shared Christian faith and long family histories which saw mutual hardship and sacrifices- and if White Southerners got a bad and raw deal from Mr. Lincoln's immoral, unjustified and bloody War to Prevent Southern Independence and from the harsh, racist Federal Reconstruction imposed afterward here in Virginia and across the American South afterward, we also know it was our Black Christian Brothers and Sisters who got the rawest deal of all. Yet throughout all of this evildoing committed against American Southerners- indeed against all Americans of of all races and backgrounds, those of us who know our own family histories passed down to us and who already know who we are- recognize the many cultural and spiritual Christian ties we share which binds us together as we all seek to make today and tomorrow a better place to live and hope and dream and achieve under our God-ordained Natural Law Rights, and hard-earned liberty and freedom against all odds, and as sacrificed, preserved and defended by each successive generation of Americans of all races and backgrounds.

Cleanth Brooks said that Northern literature lacks greatness because it tends to be sentimental, ideological and pornographic. All three trade on the surface or aspects of things to stimulate emotion, instead of penetrating to the heart of things. When you do that you confront original sin as well as human goodness.

But don't take my word for all of this- I encourage you to read more about it yourself based on the written words of the Americans and Confederates who lived during that time; and by the sound scholarship of some of the most distinguished scholars of our time today. Here are a few topic area recommendations to get you started on your own racial justice enlightenment- the ties which bind us together in our common struggles and sacrifices as Americans- be they North, South, East, West, Black, White, Slave or Freemen. The Truth Shall Set Us All Free from our current Federal Government Plantation, and serve to push back the frontiers of modern historic ignorance, bigotry and intolerance of the very worst kind.

Does anyone think it is peculiar how antifa and blm is doing the same thing in others countries? Is it paternalistic to get racism, equity training shoved to us. Don't you think we got the training already. Is it just whites that are prejudiced? Really??? Fauquier where does Path receive its funds?
Mark House · February 28, 2021 at 5:14 pm
Jeffersonian American - I am an atheist so you are preaching your religious cultism to an uninterested party.

"What we need to understand is they will obliterate our history, values and traditions- if we let them."

Do you mean the protracted history that the Daughters of the Confederacy pushed on southern children after the Civil War? The made up history, the lies, that still linger in the South poisoning the pool of equality under the law?

When you say "WE and OUR" you mean "White" history, values, and traditions, don't you?
JohnQ · February 28, 2021 at 12:36 pm
Apparently, there are some folks who openly rail against the use of pseudonyms while writing in this forum. I am sure James Madison, John Jay, and Alexander Hamilton would disagree.
Jeffersonian American · February 28, 2021 at 7:25 am
Mr. House, to answer your question, "Yes." Now back to the Racism Discussion at hand. There is nothing for me to atone for in a racial indoctrination hosted by the Globalist-Funded PATH Foundation. Live the Ten Commandments. Love thy neighbor. We are ALL God's Children. ALL Lives Matter.

Perhaps you may have a reason to attend and perhaps you have something to atone for.

Author Forrest Marion asks on what basis or authority is such language and the verdict America is a systemically racist country to be accepted? An answer is demanded by any civilization or culture that hopes to survive. But, alas, the theory of “Critical Race” requires one to accept that racism is “baked-in to all of society." Actual evidence is entirely beside the point – and the point is a reordering of all of society, indeed, the creating of a new reality (we’ve seen this several times before – with the anointed in charge, and disastrous outcomes). Author Marion further correctly notes the organizations promoting CRT are frighteningly clear about what they believe. Sensing victory, they do not hide their intentions. The best known among them, Black Lives Matter (BLM), boasts, “We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure” (a traditional Marxist aim). The Movement 4 Black Lives (M4BL) – a partner organization of BLM – openly states, “WE ARE ABOLITIONIST: We believe that prisons, police and all other institutions that inflict violence on Black people must be abolished [emphasis added] and replaced by institutions that value and affirm the flourishing of Black lives.” BLM joins the demand for police defunding. Much more of their hideousness is out there for the reading. As The Heritage Foundation rightly observes,

The goals of the Black Lives Matter organization (and affiliated lecturers and best selling authors) go far beyond what most people think. But they are hiding in plain sight, there for the world to see, if only we read beyond the slogans and the innocuous-sounding media accounts of the movement.

The group’s radical Marxist agenda would supplant the basic building block of society – the family – with the state and destroy the economic system that has lifted more people from poverty than any other. Black lives, and all lives, would be harmed.

Theirs is a blueprint for misery, not justice. It must be rejected.


Chronicles- A Magazine of American Culture accurately observes in the wake of our massively fraudulent American 2020 Presidential election with partisan strife tearing the little remaining fabric of our former American republic, we need to stay mindful of the many ways that America comes under direct assault from the Cancel Culture that dominates in today's Democrat Party and Marxist-Communist Progressive movement.

We see assaults and systematic eradication upon our history in the 1619 Project and in the sophistry of such concepts as "multiracial whiteness," with which they try to discount non-caucasian support for conservatism. What we need to understand is they will obliterate our history, values and traditions- if we let them.

But we will not concede.

J.B. Shurk writing at AMERICAN THINKER questions why is the "land of the free" so afraid of free speech? Why is the U.S. military more concerned with spreading intersectional Marxism and purging Trump voters among its ranks than ending and completing wars that have endured for decades? Why can't Americans question an election without being called terrorists by their government? Why does a company as powerful as Amazon feel threatened by a single book questioning transgenderism? Why must a company as dominant as Google insist on banning interviews with President Trump in order to keep control of the "narrative"? Why must companies with universal name brand recognition such as Disney and Coca-Cola still bow down before false woke gods by firing actresses who question "cancel culture" and subjecting employees to racial indoctrination?

(CONTINUED) CHRONICLES notes in their strident opposition to progressive zeitgeist, Thinking Americans will not be turned from the truth. Nor will we be silenced. Despite the Cultural Marxists promoting their truly vile, not-so-clever racist agendas and disastrous, Red Communist and Globalist-Funded Black Live Matter / ANTIFA objectives in these spaces and OP-EDs published nationwide (even Fundamentally Transforming our formerly tranquil Town of Warrenton Courthouse Square every Saturday morning into a public disturbance with their menacing signage and Goth attire, blaring race music and threatening scenes better suited for dilapidated, hate-filled, rat-infested, Democrat Controlled urban wasteland Baltimore, Maryland or "Straight Outta Compton"), traditional Fauquier citizens of all races and backgrounds who were taught by their parents and prior generations to believe "We Are All God's Children" and that "All Lives Matter" as a foundation to our American civilization are not alone in our thinking- and to remain faithful to our wider resolve to uphold Truth and Beauty in our community and throughout our greater society- because Truth Is Truth until the end of time.

Traditional God-fearing Americans who love the ideals and principles of our timeless Natural Law Rights (that's God-given rights- not rights granted by some king, dictator or tyrant or politician) and our right to self-determination as enshrined in our American founding documents- including our Declaration of Independence, our Bill of Rights, and especially our state and Federal Constitutions and our Virginia Declaration of Rights- will not be turned from these self-evident truths; and we shall be made more sure of our resolve.

Nearly 60 years ago, Martin Luther King- in his better moments- urged us all to become color-blind. Why on Earth would I want to attend a public lecture in the 21st century that keeps stoking the fires of racist ideology and labeling everyone and every thing in our American history in terms of race and Critical Race Theory? Are these purveyors of Critical Race Theory suggesting after trillions of dollars of Great Society Big Government Spending over the past six decades based on defining everyone by race and racial quotas and creating thousands of Government programs, bureaus and agencies emphasizing favoritism of non-white race-based demographics, decades of anti-white reverse discrimination Federal Government. State and local policies enacted, higher education anti-white race-based admissions and scholarship programs is not enough atonement, if ever, for America? If not, when will it ever end? Until there is no more America?

No thanks. Study your world history factually and truthfully. No matter how difficult circumstances were for everyone who eventually settled here or immigrated here centuries ago, we are all infinitely better off living here today in the 21st century, than where we all fled from.

A free republic, if we can keep it.

"The Transgender Rights Cultural Marxism now being imposed is not only destroying America- it is destroying America's Armed Forces and the very foundation of our American society- and which harms AMERICANS OF ALL RACES and the HUMAN RACE as some of us have already witnessed."

Jeffersonian American - Time to put up or shut up. Go to the talk, ask questions, engage with people instead of on here where you are a broken record stuck in the same deep groove of tinfoil hat land.
Jeffersonian American · February 26, 2021 at 6:13 am
TWO REVOLUTIONS AT ONCE: Mr. Fields, those officials not obeying the U.S. Constitution aren't merely just being elected- or officially appointed- here and there, they have resorted now to STEALING local, state and NATIONAL ELECTIONS to impose their Marxist-Communist Agenda for America and its many forms of Cultural Marxism to destroy American civilization and history itself. Don't believe me? How about the 2020 U.S. National Election- where all the constitutional guardrails provided by our American founders were deliberately ignored by our broken government institutions and those who swore to uphold our U.S. and state constitutions. Want another example? How about the fact the Biden/Harris Regime is now destroying women's rights under Title IX- allowing biological males to play on women's sports teams, share women's bathrooms, etc., just because a biological male who thinks he's a woman says so- he gets to displace an actual woman on a team or enter the women's rest rooms to peep, intimidate, threaten or otherwise harass your innocent daughter, wife, mother, sister, Aunt or grandmother? Talk about Democrat Racism- with the soon-to-be appointment of Radical Democrat Merrick Garland, America's Women will have an Old White Male as U.S. Attorney General UPHOLDING these Transgender Laws and the deliberate destruction of Title IX protections- spreading a hideous cultural disaster across every American state, city and town. Soon, Real American Women and Girls will have NO remaining protections against Attorney General Merrick Garland or confused Transgender Males who think they are women. The Transgender Rights Cultural Marxism now being imposed is not only destroying America- it is destroying America's Armed Forces and the very foundation of our American society- and which harms AMERICANS OF ALL RACES and the HUMAN RACE as some of us have already witnessed.

Ms. Rodgers, perhaps when the Globalist funded PATH Foundation sponsors local Virginia and Warrenton seminars on upholding our U.S. and Virginia Constitutions- and educating the children and adults in our community of our Virginia Declaration of Rights; perhaps when the many Radical Left, Globalist-funded PATH, FORD and other Foundations contribute their hundreds of millions of dollars injected into every corner of the United States every year to champion the preservation of our American historic monuments and the factual study of our American history including our proud and distinguished Virginia and Confederate heritage as they pertain to our Natural Law Rights and our right to self-determination and our struggles for independence during two American secessions of 1776 and 1861, then perhaps I will entertain listening and learning from their sponsored speakers and seminars. But to attend a Cultural Marxism seminar based on book steeped in the ideology of how (White) America is a systemically racist country (I read the book overview online) by a New York City author, would be an indoctrination that I have no reason or guilt to endure. Throughout my life, I have always been nothing but kind to my Christian Brothers and Sisters who happened to be black, always remembering WE ARE ALL GOD'S CHILDREN; thus, I would not benefit from marinating further in a lecture steeped in BLM-tinged Racist Intolerance, Bigotry, Confederaphobia, and other Historic Ignorance on Fire of the very worst kind (based on the author's book jacket and on-line overview, and the official affiliated reviews. Only Christianity, love and sheer fortitude will save this land and its inhabitants now. It is fair to say our American history is far more intricate, interrelated, and complex than the generalities to be presented in this forthcoming lecture; and there are far many more ties that bind us together as Americans and God's Children among the races than not. We cannot learn from our mistakes of the past if that American history, and the nobler words, deeds, actions, struggles and historic monuments of our forebears are being systematically eradicated and erased and replaced with the Revisionist History and "Advocacy Scholarship" now being promoted in the one-sided narrative of the 21st century Cultural Marxists. Ever-increasing numbers of Americans are now realizing the Democrat Party and all of these Globalist funded organizations seek the “Fundamental Transformation” of America.

Back in July 2020 Scott McKay at American Spectator wrote an amazing piece on the Four Stages of Marxist Takeover.

McKay’s report is based on the words and warnings of Soviet defector Yuri Bezmenov.

It’s been seven months since the report was published and the situation today is even more dire than predicted. Even McKay would never have predicted the antics of the Marxist left during the 2020 elections. The Marxist takeover of America is well on its way. Here are the four steps of Marxist takeover of America: (CONTINUED NEXT POSTING)
Jeffersonian American · February 26, 2021 at 6:00 am
(CONTINUED) The first goal of revolutionary propaganda, particularly the Marxist variety, is to demoralize. It is to depress you and make you believe your civilization is lost. Once you succumb to that, you are, in the words of Ming the Merciless, “satisfied with less.” Why do you think ordinary white people are so willing to apologize for the sins of their ancestors and to confess to being racist without even knowing it? Why do you think corporate America is blindly endorsing a Marxist revolutionary organization that openly declares war on the nuclear family?

That’s demoralization, and according to Bezmenov it’s the first step in engineered societal collapse.

What’s the second step? Destabilization.

Bezmenov describes that as a rapid decline in the structure of a society — its economy, its military, its international relations. We’ve discussed in this space the unquestionable impetus on the part of Democrats to keep the economy as hamstrung as possible with COVID-19 shutdowns.

No, that isn’t a conspiracy theory. They’re telling you it’s what they’re after. Do you believe Ilhan Omar was off-script when she suggested dismantling America’s economy as a system of oppression earlier this week? Ilhan Omar, who paid a political consultant $900,000 in fees last year, money that came from somewhere, isn’t smart enough to say these things without having the script written for her. She’s being trotted out to introduce them because she’s already radioactive and a lightning rod for criticism, and also because she’s (1) black, (2) Muslim, and (3) an immigrant, and even an illegal one. To criticize her statements is "Racism." So when other Democrats join her call you are no longer allowed to object.

Google Omar’s statements and what you’ll find is a loud cacophony of gaslighting by left-wing media outlets like Common Dreams, The Nation, the Washington Post, and others attacking Republicans for reacting to what they saw and heard on video as “meltdowns” and “losing their minds.” Even Snopes, the left-wing site purportedly acting as a fact-check operation, declares that Omar didn’t actually say what she said.

That’s destabilization. They’re fully engaged in it, whether you believe they’ve been successful or not. But ask Mark McCloskey, for example, whether or not he thinks it’s outlandish to suggest the American order has been destabilized. McCloskey told Tucker Carlson that after the police told him they couldn’t protect him after the incident where he and his wife used guns to protect their property from a mob of Black Lives Matter trespassers, he called around to private security firms for help and was given advice to get out of his house and let the mob do what they would. Does that sound like a stable society to you?

The third stage is crisis, the catalyzing event that builds on the first two stages to bring on the change the revolutionaries are looking for. Looking for a crisis? Take your pick. We barely even remember the fact that we just had only the third presidential impeachment in American history half a year ago, a constitutional crisis that was wholly and completely manufactured directly out of thin air. We progressed immediately from that to COVID-19, which was unquestionably a manufactured crisis — not that the virus itself isn’t deadly to a certain portion of the population, but if you think the panic and destruction it’s caused doesn’t smack of manufacture then it’s clear you’ve been demoralized.

And then the George Floyd riots and the paroxysms of violence and virtue-signaling those have brought on, complete with the current campaign to bowdlerize American history and culture in an increasingly indiscriminate fashion. That’s a crisis, everybody, and it’s a completely manufactured one. The speed of the cultural collapse that followed Floyd’s death — when the legal system moved very swiftly against the police officers responsible for it — makes it undeniable this was planned and only needed a catalyst.

What’s the fourth stage? Normalization. As in, a “new normal.” The statues and monuments are gone, the ball games are out, or at least you aren’t allowed in the stadium to watch them (and you’ve got to watch them on TV interspersed with commercial spots and in-game messaging pushing whatever memes and narratives the ESPNs and NBCs of the world and their Madison Avenue partners wish to implant in your mind), the schools have purged American history and culture, the Universal Basic Income checks have replaced your job, which you can’t do because the small business where you used to work has gone under thanks to the virus.

And Biden is president. For a little while, until it’s clear he’s incapacitated per the 25th Amendment, and then somebody else that you didn’t vote for is in charge of the country. (CONTINUED NEXT POSTING)
Jeffersonian American · February 26, 2021 at 5:53 am
(CONTINUED) Scott McKay ends his history lesson with this nugget. This was back in July, before Democrats locked doors for two days to manufacture ballots, and drove in vans full of ballots at 3:30 AM, and pulled out suitcases of ballots hidden under tables to steal the landslide 2020 election from U.S. President Donald Trump.

Let’s hope your confidence none of this can happen is well-placed. The evidence is overwhelming to the contrary.

But just to be sure, let’s make damned sure Biden and the Kamala Democrats take an historic beating in the coming Novembers after election fraud has been permanently fixed in the corrupted states. We don’t want to find out what’s behind the curtain in Biden’s basement. Too many nasty things are already peeking out at us from there.

The revolution is upon us. Pray to God that it is not too late for America.
And plan accordingly.

In the case of the growing number of "local" Globalist funded organizations across our American landscape, it's Two Revolutions At Once: Cultural and Marxist. My Christian American heroes and truly great historic American figures are being systematically eradicated, destroyed and erased by the Cultural Marxists, hapless or complicit politicians and by the Globalist Funded Organizations. Your American heroes may be next. After all, it was Martin Luther King who was surrounded by Communists who began orchestrating the “Two Revolutions At Once” Agenda in earnest over 60 years ago. Read the FBI files since declassified, before they too, are erased from our official American history.

I'll have to take a pass on this coming lecture, but I definitely look forward to attending the NEXT lecture to be scheduled on how to halt the Cultural and Marxist Revolutions currently underway in our community, our State and our country.

In the interim, love thy neighbor with Christian forbearance as the Holy Bible teaches, beware of false prophets; and know that the ultimate revenge against tyranny is to lead good and noble lives with family, friends and loved ones, for even the Christians led good and noble lives during the fall of ancient Rome.

TADD- I question questionable Americans that snivel and show their teeth like cornered rats ala Kavanaugh.

Why would I attend any speech promoted by people that have proven themselves to be insurrectionists and traitors?

You don't agree with any violence? What's your take on the death penalty? Or defending your home from an invasion by someone intent on stealing from you or doing you bodily harm?
TADD · February 25, 2021 at 9:43 am
Jerome, Kavanaugh has pages of credentials and experience unlike the shady lawyer Biden is trying to get confirmed as Secretary of Health and Human services. You will slam any good American to push your agenda. If Qanon or Proud boys backed a speech about racism, would you go? Kavanaugh was called a gang rapist. Me2 led by an illegal had their women baging on fed doors. I don't agree with any violence and Obama with the mayor of Baltimore sure pushed buttons to cook up riots without evidence.

Savefauqueircounty2019 - Plain and simple, Kavanaugh is NOT qualified for his position. He didn't serve enough time on the bench, his judgement record is abysmal, and he does not have the temperament to be a SC justice.

Sure TADD. The BLM protests this year created about $500 million in property damages.

And the US forcibly moved a little over 300,000 people from Africa to the US to work for no pay for the rest of their lives, while also ensuring that their offspring would have the same fate. Not counting all of those born into bondage in the US, if the harm done to those brought here in slavery came to a little less than $2 per person in total damages, then sure, BLM has done more damage in total than the damage done towards slaves.

Glad we're keeping all this in perspective.

Don't you think blm has done enough to scare us? The expense of their damage is far beyond the violence towards slaves.

Playing the racist card over and over and over.... BLM per Wikipedia received 10.6 million in donations. They generalize and rationalize their violence against Americans with their rioting without evidence.They have become the judge and jury. We witnessed what happened to Kavanaugh and his family. Me 2 was violently beating on federal doors. Amy Schumer was arrested. If this violence is ok with the radical left in the name if sexism and racism than why isn't the focus on Ralph and his assistant governor?

BetKeptSecrets - Who was it that caused the death of people at the Capitol Riot on January 6, 2021 and who instigated and encouraged the riot?

We don't deserve to have people serving in our government who are being elected and swearing to uphold the Constitution, to then go off script and invite destruction and falsehoods promoting conspiracies.

You could go to the talk, unless you're talking out of your backside, and ask some questions.

BLM isn't any different than many organizations in this country that protest, they promote stopping the wholesale murder of people of color, the Anti-Abortion people promote the halt of abortions, the Anti-Gun groups promote cease and desist of killing children.

I hope she will discuss initially where the racism/prejudices started and who sold out their people to slavery not to this country but many countries. Why it was legal to purchase slaves and how are illegal immigrants now viewed when hired by dishonest employers who should be shamed. Illegal immigrants are modern day slaves and many countries enslave their women and their children. America is the most welcoming diverse country in the world. We don't deserve BLM, KKK, or Antifa burning down and destroying our cities and murdering its people in the name of racism. It appears purposeful, intentional, calculated and planned. So if they are permitted to do this and our leaders get them out of jail for free, we have to ask is BLM a new branch of our government? They are acting and behaving as though they are.

Jeffersonian America - Why not go to the talk, perhaps you will learn something useful?

QAnon has a strong hold on you for a self-promoted intellectual.

We notice the Globalist PATH Foundation is hosting this author in our small, longstanding, tranquil, close-knit local community, whose book details all kinds of terrible incidents found in our American history- following the Black Lives Matter narrative, Social Justice objectives, renewing old race agitations and affiliations, etc. Indeed, slavery isn't the only Evil in the world, though it is indeed Evil. Also Evil was the bloodiest conflict of the 19th century found anywhere in the world- the brutal and bloody subjugation of the American South- including Blacks, Whites, Slaves and Freemen- at a cost of a million dead American soldiers in both the North and the South along with innocent Southern civilians, and the permanent maiming of another million more American soldiers of both sides- merely to preserve a Northeastern Industrial Empire (The Lincoln Empire replaced our original constitutional republic of our American founders by bloody force of arms- and 160 years later, here we are).

While the PATH Foundation and Radical Black Lives Matter/ANTIFA Left are perfectly fine hosting this one-sided discussion on race and the Black Lives Matter Indoctrinations In American History- instead of their continued efforts to marinate our local community in their common themes of hatred for America as founded based on our Natural Law Rights which ended a thousand or more years of serfdom, feudalism and yes- even the evil institution of slavery which did not originate in the American South- one can always hope they will finance and promote other more intellectually honest lectures and sources on our American History for our current community to reinforce the Christian teaching so desperately needed today that we are all God's Children. Or are we condemned by PATH and others to only be forced to continue to marinate in the racial agitations of Black Lives Matter lectures while conveniently erasing all mention and discussion from history, for example, the names the documented 952 Freemen (free blacks) who owned slaves by 1830 in Virginia?

Cleanth Brooks said that Northern literature lacks greatness because it tends to be sentimental, ideological and pornographic. All three trade on the surface or aspects of things to stimulate emotion, instead of penetrating to the heart of things. When you do that you confront original sin as well as human goodness.
