Now--Culturally Marxist Currency!

by Al Benson Jr.

Right after he was awarded the presidency of this country Obama said that he was going to "fundamentally transform" the United States. People could only guess what he meant by that, but those that knew anything of Obama's real background had deep suspicions that whatever he was going to do, it wasn't going to be good. Their suspicions have been more than justified. His transformation agenda (the agenda of his handlers) has been at work transforming the culture of this country. In fact, you could say that American culture has been emotionally and physically assaulted under "his" regime.

Now he and his handlers will further assault the culture by changing the design of the country's currency. You all have read by now about the new design of the twenty dollar bill and other bills that will be undergoing the Obamaite "transformation." The new currency designs to be foisted off on the public in the near future are living proof that the cultural Marxists will literally push their agenda in every area of our lives in an attempt to convert the sleeping public into accepting their pernicious theology.

A main "cornerstone"  of their theology is an abolitionism morphing into a "civil rights" movement. And it's all part of Karl Marx's "reconstruction of a social world" that Donnie Kennedy and I took note of in our book Lincoln's Marxists. 

Our august Secretary of the Treasury has dutifully informed us that the picture of Andy Jackson on our twenty dollar fiat currency bills will soon be replaced with a simply glowing portrait of Harriet Tubman, one of the movers and shakers in the "underground railway" before the War of Northern Aggression.

The Underground Railway, we have been told, was a system of "safe houses" from places in the South leading all the way up through the Northern states and into Canada. Supposedly friendly Southern abolitionists helped the escaping slaves to go north where a friendly, virtuous Northern population awaited their arrival with open arms. They teach some of this in many of the country's public school "history" texts.

Suffice it to say that "it ain't quite so." Writer Michael B. Chesson is a professor of history at the University of Massachusetts, Boston, and he specializes  in the history of the American "Civil War." He wrote an authoritative article for The Textbook League which appeared in their newsletter, Volume 12, Number One. Check out  Professor Chesson noted several history books that promote this line about the Underground Railway and he noted the inaccuracies in all this regarding Harriet Tubman.

Suffice it to say there are culture-changing reasons why Ms Tubman is about to replace Andy Jackson on the twenty. Andy Jackson is not politically correct (culturally Marxist) and Ms. Tubman is. But they are going to keep Alexander Hamilton on the ten dollar bill. He is politically correct as the promoter of the first national bank, so the feds don't really want to remove him.

But even for that, they plan on making some changes to the ten spot, and to the five dollar bill as well, although I don't expect they will remove from the five dollar bill the portrait of the president who was a favorite of the Marxists and socialists.

The Treasury Secretary, Jack Lew, has said, in part: "The new $10 bill will honor the story and the heroes of the women's suffrage movement against the backdrop of the Treasury Building...The new $10 design will depict that historic march and honor Lucretia Mott, Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Alice Paul for their contributions to the suffrage movement.?

It's interesting that Mr. Lew neglected to mention the connections of Susan B. Anthony, Lucretia Mott and Elizabeth Cady Stanton with the Spiritualist Movement during the latter part of the nineteenth century. If you can find a copy of the book Radical Spirits  by Ann Braude that will give you some insight into the Spiritualist Movement and its connections with the "women's rights" movement. The early feminist movement was riddled with Spiritualism. This is something else the "history" books have mostly forgotten to mention.

After neglecting to mention all that, Mr. Lew moved on to inform us that the new five dollar bill, in addition to keeping the portrait of the Marxist's favorite president, "will depict the historic events that have occurred at the Lincoln Memorial." Lew noted that, in 1963, Martin Luther King Jr. gave us his "I have a dream" speech at the Lincoln Memorial. Lew noted that, on the back of the five dollar bill, they will start featuring leaders of the civil rights movement. That should be interesting. I wonder which ones they will pick--they can't go too far in hardly any direction without bumping into someone with Communist connections, not that this would bother them, as long as the public at large can be kept in total ignorance about it. With our current public education system that should be no problem.

So we have finally gotten to the point where all the culturally Marxist leftist aberrations will now be commemorated as healthy and normal on our currency. Former history will be erased  and some of the prize agendas of the cultural Marxist Movement will be enshrined on the currency, complete with anti-counterfeit strips. What more could you ask for?

I just wonder what they will end up doing with the one dollar bill. After all, George Washington WAS a slave owner. Maybe, they can find some way to get someone like Pol Pot, the great Cambodian "liberator" onto the one dollar bill. Undoubtedly he would be quite acceptable to the cultural Marxist crowd and they could then get rid of that picture of that nasty old Southern slave owner. After all, we have had presidential candidates whose citizenship in this country has not been beyond question, so why not a known Communist on the one dollar bill? Our currency (notice I have not called it money) has become a major propaganda tool for the One World government crowd. Unfortunately, most people probably will not even notice. Unfortunately, their children and grandchildren will--and the knowledge won't be positive.

The Republican Party--Can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit?

by Al Benson Jr.

By no stretch of the wildest imagination can the Republican Party be considered truly conservative and/or patriotic. I realize such a statement will shock some folks who grew up with the myth that the Republican Party was the "party of small government."

If you doubt, just go back and look at the history of the GOP. Who was its first presidential candidate back in 1856? Anyone know? It was John Charles (Pathfinder) Fremont. Actually Fremont didn't find too many of the paths--Kit Carson, his scout found most of them, but Fremont got the credit. Fremont was, by any accurate definition, a radical that leaned hard left in his political views. When the War of Northern Aggression broke out Fremont, who had a command in Missouri, ended up with a whole cadre of socialist Forty-eighters (Lincoln's Marxists) in his command.

When Fremont had run for president in 1856, Frederick Hassaurek, one of the socialist Forty-eighters campaigned all over the Midwest for him. That fact established a relationship between Fremont and the Forty-eighters. And when Fremont didn't make the cut in 1856 the Forty-eighters had to wait another four years until Abraham Lincoln came along and, as they had done for Fremont, so they did for Lincoln. They worked for his election and when the war started they thronged to serve in his armies, and some of them served in the early Republican Party. A couple of Forty-eighters even helped to write the Republican Party platform in 1860--hardly what you would call an auspicious "conservative" beginning for the party.

Real conservatism has seldom been part of the Republican Party agenda.  Perceived conservatism has though. Perceived conservatism is great for getting conservative support from people who have not done the homework, and they serve as good window dressing to make others think conservatism thrives where it really doesn't. For some background material on the early Republican Party and the Forty-eighters, read the book Lincoln's Marxists.  

So, over the years, the Republican Party has worked to fool the voting public into thinking it is something it is not--patriotic and conservative! You might be tempted to say "well that was then but this is now." Okay--show me the difference between what they did then and what they are doing now. In 2012 you had Ron Paul running for president, and he had won several states, one of them Louisiana where I live. I went to the party caucus in Monroe in 2012 and Ron Paul got 80% of the vote there. Romney got 20%. It was the same in most other Louisiana cities that we checked. However, when the state caucus was held in Shreveport shortly after, with Ron Paul having 80% of the delegates statewide, the state Republican Establishment decided it was not going to seat Ron Paul's 80%--it was going to seat and recognize Romney's 20%. When the 80% of legitimate delegates complained the Republican Establishment called the police in and they made sure the illegitimate 20% were the delegates that were recognized. Lots of folks have forgotten this. I haven't. The Republican Establishment in Louisiana (and several other states) stole their state from Ron Paul and handed it to Mitt Romney. Why? Because they realized that Romney was not going to beat Obama and Obama was supposed to get a second term. Romney was the weakest Republican they could have nominated--same as in 2008 when McCain got the nod. Everyone knew he wasn't going to beat Obama, wasn't supposed to beat Obama. If I had a suspicious mind I'd be tempted to say "the fix was in." But far be it from me to think such thoughts. The Republicans are noted for putting up weak candidates in years the Democrats are supposed to win.

And 2016 is no different. One of the stable of Establishment candidates was supposed to win and then lose to Hillary in the general election. So far it hasn't worked out that way, but it will eventually if the "conservative" Republicans can figure out a way to deep six Donald Trump. He was the real spoiler in their plan and he has hung on to the bitter end. If he gets enough delegates to take the nomination then the Republican Establishment will have to find a way to deny him the nomination--because he is not supposed to win--Hillary is! And you can tell the way the Republican Establishment is acting that this is the game plan. They are bending over backwards to smear Trump. Conservatives--so called--are stating openly that if Trump wins the nomination they will not support him. They are howling that Trump is not a real conservative. The question then arises--are they??? Not hardly.

One thing you have to realize--at the national level and most state levels, the Republican and Democratic parties share the same socialist worldview and so they scratch one another's backs because they promote identical socialist agendas and they don't want some rank outsider coming along to upset the apple cart they have worked at filling for the last several decades.. Both parties, working together, have moved this country a long way down the road to One World government. That's their real agenda.

Doug Parris wrote an interesting article that appeared on on April 8th. Mr. Parris noted some of the less-than-conservative actions of the "party of small government" in recent years. He said: "...from 1988 to 2012 the Party elites successfully rebuffed the candidacies and enormous grassroots movements of Pat Robertson, Pat Buchanan, and Ron Paul, all of whom were treated as hostile invaders and their millions of supporters as vermin, despised and rejected. And the odd candidates the Party occasionally elected in their stead loyally compromised away the principles that animated their supporters." In other words, they sold out!

So Mr. Parris feels that the Republican Party is on its last legs, that  it's almost finished whether they end up  stopping Trump or not. Parris describes the GOP bosses as "flexible." Is that a good description or what? So we end up with a Republican Party that tries to convince people it is conservative when all it is at this point is irrelevant. And as long as they can fool the voters they don't really care. It's all a game, a charade, a political scam if you will to make people think you have two different parties with two different worldviews when all you really have is one internationalist, socialist party with two names.

No Wonder the Left Usually Wins--the Right is Nothing But a Hollow Shell

by Al Benson Jr.

I have been watching, this weekend, all the fuss over the Communist groups that managed to break up Trump's rally in Chicago. From Communist groups you expect this sort of thing. Since they can't intelligently debate their corrupt points their only alternative is to shout down their adversaries and try to shut them down and them blame their adversaries for it. This is the standard bill of fare for the lefties, proving that they really have nothing worthwhile to contribute and can get by with blaming the opposition for that fact.

What surprised me, though, was the people over on the right who spouted the exact same line the lefties did. Communist groups broke up Trump's rally and it was all Trump's fault according to many that are supposed to be "right-wingers." Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio were among the headliners in this dog and pony show and when you begin to see "conservative" candidates pushing the same line at Hillary and Bernie you have to know something is wrong, dreadfully wrong.

I can come up with no other conclusion than this; that much of what we consider to be the conservative, patriotic movement is really nothing more than a hollow shell, geared to fool honest, patriotic Americans with its blather about "small government" when what they are really doing is providing cover for the left without appearing to do so. And they do fool lots of folks who lack the discernment to figure out what they are doing.

It's a given than both Republican and Democratic Parties are nothing more than two wings on the same socialist, One World vulture and anyone who really trusts the Republicans to deliver the country from the clutches of the "liberal Democrats" is whistling Yankee/Marxist Doodle because that's all the Republicans will ever give him--doodle!

I'm thinking of going through my email list and deleting a batch of those sites I have been getting mail from for years so because, as I watch what they say more and more, I find many of them seem to be nothing more than foils for the Marxists. Now I will admit that Donald Trump is far from the perfect candidate. He has issues I don't agree with, such as his position on eminent domain. But on the other hand, I can't disagree with  him on the Second Amendment--as long as he sticks to what he's said so far. What amazes me is that he draws fire from both left and right and, on some reflection, that says to me that left and right really agree on many things when push comes to shove and they only let us know about it when someone like Trump comes along that they are forced to say something about because his positions attack the left/right coalition they are really part of.

So, it seems to me that lots of folks who have claimed to be on the right and to be patriotic with their "America first" messages have really been lying to us, which probably siphons money and support away from those groups that are genuinely conservative and patriotic. That would be a Marxist goal too.

I'm thinking that it might be a good idea for us to start reassessing some of these "patriotic" groups to see what they really are doing for us, if anything, and how much of their supposed effort in our behalf amounts to little more than meaningless blather that directs real opposition away from the left. When Cruz and Rubio reach the point where they become indistinguishable from Hillary and Bernie then we better start realizing we have homework to do. A good start might be to check the Internet and find a membership list for the Council on Foreign Relations and check out any members of Congress who might be members or have family members who belong or have belonged. Then check out "news" media people who belong. Once you have done that you will know why you get the slanted media coverage so prevalent on the six o' clock news and in the daily fishwrapper you still refer to as a newspaper.

Unfortunately the advocates of One World Government are alive and well on both the left and the right. It should be our bounden duty to expose the ones on the right.

The Republican Establishment--Is It Really a Criminal Conspiracy?

by Al Benson Jr.

After having watched the political gyrations the Republican Party is going through in their efforts to reject the candidacy of Donald Trump I have to come to the conclusion that all that many have said about them over the years is correct. They really are no different than the Democrats. The Council on Foreign Relations/Trilateral Commission really does give them their marching orders and the only difference between them and the Democrats is that they have been directed to hide their socialist proclivities where the Democrats have been allowed to let them all hang out. The two political parties really are nothing more than two different wings on the same socialist turkey and, as usual, and by design, it is flying in the wrong direction.

The American people are being stiffed by the Internationalists and it is on purpose and with the consent of all three branches of the government. As I have said before, the Constitution is no protection whatever for the public when all three branches of government are in collusion to ignore it and are aided and abetted by a prostitute media.

If the Republicans were really "conservative" they would not be having the problem they are with Donald Trump. If the other Republican candidates were really as conservative as they claim they would not all be looking for ways to dump him. You have to come to the conclusion with Trump, that if the left and the so-called right both hate his guts then he must be doing something right! And the fact that both left and "right" are so anxious to deep six him tells you that, at root, they have the same socialist agenda. The left is left. The "right" is really left and the American public has no one in government to defend it. All they want to do is to make sure they get your guns before you start to realize this.

I think all this talk about "indicting" Hillary is a big joke. Does anyone honestly think the Loretta Lynch's "Just Us Department" of which the FBI is a part will ever have her indicted? Come on folks, you have to be kidding! The only way she will ever get indicted is if, for some reason, the CFR/Trilateralist/Bilderburger group decides she is too much of a liability to become president and they decide to throw her under the bus. Other than that, she's a shoo-in, no matter how many votes she does or doesn't get. After all, we all know it's who counts them, not who votes that makes the difference.

And the Republicans are heartily trying to resurrect that tired old retread, Mitt Romney so he can take support away from Trump. They are also looking for another weak Republican candidate that will not be able to beat Hillary and if Romney couldn't beat Obama then Hillary will have him for lunch--and it's all according to plan.

The Ruling Establishment knows the public is fed up. They couldn't care less! They figure whatever they shove down our throats we'll take it. We're too stupid to do anything else!  One of these days they may be in for a rude awakening and when that happens it may get messy--but they don't realize that yet so they will keep on pushing.

If the Republican Party were going to stand up for conservative and patriotic values they would have done it when they got a majority in Congress. Instead they just continued to cave in to Obama. When conservatives arose in protest over John Boehner's caving in they finally, reluctantly, removed him and gave us Paul Ryan who is nothing more than Boehner-Lite, so nothing changed. And nothing will change no matter who we get for president either. They will find some way to sidetrack Trump and we will get the weakest possible Republican candidate to run against Hillary and it will be business as usual in the "District of Corruption."

Our "Pre-Revolutionary" Mood

by Al Benson Jr.

In my "huntin' and peckin' on the Internet this week I came across an interesting article on  which observed that the vast majority of Americans now believe that both political parties  are so hopelessly corrupt that they are unable to change anything for the better. The article, published on 2/8/16 stated that "This, in fact, is a revolution."

The article continued: "We've previously noted that polls show that Americans are in a 'pre-revolutionary' mood, that less than 1 in 5 Americans think that the government has the 'consent of the governed,' that government corruption tops the list of American fears (gee, we wonder why), and that 3 times as many Americans supported King George during the Revolutionary War than support our OWN Congress today." That statement, in itself, speaks volumes as to where the country is as I write this. As for King George looking better than Congress today--why not. At present Congress is busy stiffing the American public who pays their fat salaries and thanks to groups like the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission the Republican and Democratic parties are in bed with each other committing political fornication.

Republican and Democratic pollsters as well as independent political strategists have been reviewing polling date recently and they came up with some interesting results.

The zerohedge articled noted: "84% of all Americans believe political leaders are more interested in protecting their power and privilege than doing what is right. 81% believe the power of ordinary people to control our country is getting weaker every day as politicians of both parties fight to protect their own power and privilege...78% believe that the Democratic and Republican Parties are essentially useless in changing anything because both political parties are too beholden to special interests to create any meaningful change...74% see the biased and slanted coverage of the media as part of the problem...70% believe the government in Washington  does not govern with the consent of the people...They concluded: The country is in a pre-revolutionary moment. This election could mark the beginning of the end two-party duopoly in the United States." This is not the entire list by any means. There was more but I cannot reproduce all of it here. Check out the zerohedge article for yourselves.

I am not sure most folks totally grasp the truth that their government and both political parties, the media, many universities and other organizations, including some church denominations have all been infiltrated by the minions of One World Government. I would encourage folks to get on the Internet and check out the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission. Check out their origins, who is part and parcel of them, what connections they have to the United Nations. In that regard, check out Alger Hiss who was part of Roosevelt's State Department as well as a Communist Party member, all of which bothered Roosevelt not one little bit. There is a wealth of information out there IF you are willing to make the effort to check it out. It will begin to show you why we are in the mess we are in. There is an old book out there (old being 1962) by Dan Smoot called The Invisible Government.  I believe it's on the Internet. Check it out. If it's on there you can read it for free, along with Gary Allen's book None Dare Call It Conspiracy which is also on the Internet.

These books will give you insight into why neither political party will ever do anything to change the status quo. The American public is finally beginning to wake up, stretch and yawn, and wonder why they are being taken by those they elect to office to represent them and which don't, but rather represent those in favor of One World Government, which means, for Americans, the destruction of their God-given liberty. If we are not willing, or just too lazy, to defend and protect what God has given us then we deserve to lose it. And because we've been too lazy up to now all this has been happening. Maybe the "pre-revolutionary moment" we are experiencing right now is by the grace of God, giving us yet one more chance to repent of our national as well as our personal sins and seeking His guidance as to how we turn this situation around. And make no mistake, we will NOT do it in our own strength, but only with His help and guidance.

I know today many Christians will tell you because the Lord is in control just sit back and don't worry about it. Respectfully, I disagree with the part about sitting back and not worrying. The Lord is in control and quite probably He wants to exercise some of that control using us to do it. But if we won't have any of that, then He will find someone else to do it and we may not like the results.

Is the Next Presidential Election Nothing More Than a Fixed Political Horse Race?

by Al Benson Jr.

Just read an article on today telling about how a Zogby Poll shows that the voters think Donald Trump would do a better job as president than would Hillary Clinton, otherwise referred to as "Hillary the un-indicted." Lots of polls have shown Trump in the lead as of late and I have to admit that he is saying lots of things many of us agree with, not all, but many.  He is an excellent barometer to reflect how much of the American public has come to feel, accurately so, that the Ruling Elite is stiffing us today. And the Ruling Elite--the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, and the Bilderberg Group realize how dissatisfied  the public has become with what passes for real government in our day.

Only problem is, "those people" have spent lots of money and literally generations of time diligently getting us into the sorry shape we are now in and they are not about to let someone like Trump, if he really is a lone wolf, win an election that will set their timetable back.  Ron Paul would have sought to do that back in 2012 and they made sure that didn't happen. If Trump is really on the level they will do the same thing on this go-round. They can't afford to let him get in there and gum up the agenda they and their fathers and grandfathers have worked so diligently to put in place.

Back on April 14, 2015 I did an article on my other blog spot  which I entitled Has the Next President Already Been Chosen--and is the election just going through the motions?  I noted in that article that radio talk show host Michael Savage had stated that: "The Bilderbergs met in Davos,  and the decision was made that Hillary Clinton will be the next president.  Romney was doing too well in the polls, so they threw him out. They want to make sure that another Bush--or an incompetent moron like Rubio--will be chosen to lead the Republicans, to ensure that Hillary becomes president." My April 14, 2015 article must have struck a responsive chord somewhere, because a year and eight months after I wrote it, it is still getting a bunch of views every week, many more than some of the other articles that have come and gone since then.

What brought all this to mind again was an article I just read on  on January 26th for this year. The headline for this one was: Insider: It Doesn't Matter About Trump, 'Hillary Will Win.'
The article began with this: "Highly influential CEO Martin Sorrell suggests that the outcome of the 2016 presidential election has already been decided, remarking, 'It doesn't matter who the Republicans put up..Hillary will win'." Infowars noted that: "Sorrell's comments are in line with similar sentiments expressed by globalists at the recent Davos confab...According to a Reuters report, financial elitists are 'alarmed' at the prospect of Trump being the Republican nominee, although they still expect his campaign to falter. Harvard University's Niall Ferguson told Reuters that Trump's chances 'could be over before Super Tuesday'." Now how would he know something like that? Some little bird been chirping in his ear?

Author and columnist Ann Coulter, in a column on January 20th wrote that: "We never had total war against a candidate like we're seeing with Donald Trump. All the elements of national media are uniting to stop him. Look for a fake Trump scandal  to break--probably from a conservative news outlet--right before the Iowa caucus."

As a candidate, I hadn't thought all that much about Trump one way or the other. I had figured he was just part of the Establishment's stable of candidates like all the rest. Maybe inserted in there to give the primaries a little pzazz, to possibly enthrall a voting public that's getting a little tired of all this and that is finally beginning to realize that, no matter who wins, they lose! However, he has stuck in there longer than I thought he would, and the fact that everybody, both socialists (Democrats) and conservatives seem to hate his guts, including the "news" media, both socialist and conservative, does make one wonder. If he's really genuine (I love his stands on illegal aliens and Middle-Eastern terrorists and the Second Amendment) what does that say about the moral bankruptcy  of what we mistakenly refer to as the "conservative" movement in this country? What it says is that, in reality the same people control the "conservatives" that control the socialists--the CFR, the Trilateralists, and Bilderbergers. No matter what party label they wear they all work for the same bosses!

The main point to this is that, in my opinion, many of our elections are a sham, a game played to fool the public so they will not realize that the Ruling Elite in Washington, New York and London is screwing them and that the elitist One World Government agenda will go forward no matter who gets into the White House. The presidential elections are a farce anymore and the people taking part in these "debates" ought to get Oscars--oh, sorry, I forget, the Oscars are too "white" anymore. Maybe we should start handing out "Barack Obama Diversity Awards" instead. That might appease the perpetually offended--for awhile.

I would encourage people to start doing a bit of homework on some of these candidates. You can find enough on the Internet if you "hunt and peck" around a little to make you shudder at where they are really coming from. You might just find enough to cause you to question if a vote for president  is really even worth the effort.

Hey Bernie--Don't Apologize For Me!

by Al Benson Jr.

Just read an interesting article earlier this week on  that mentioned how that lovable old socialist Bernie Sanders wants all of us white folks to apologize for slavery in America. You have to wonder if he's looking to steal black votes from Hillary or exactly what his game is.

Seems like the blame whitey for everything game hasn't been doing real well lately so maybe he feels as though he has to help it along. Some white folks are beginning to get a little ticked off at seeing the flags and symbols of their culture and heritage being constantly attacked and smeared and they are responding with Confederate flags on their flag poles and on the backs of their trucks and with rallies where everyone carries a Confederate flag of some kind.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize that the vast majority of the politicians in both parties hate our guts but they can't come right out and say it. How it must agitate them to have to bite their tongues when they are forced to give speeches or attend town meetings where they actually have to talk to us rubes in flyover country because, even with some of the "creative voting" we now have they still need our votes to get back in so they can continue to feed at the trough that we pay to keep full for them.

So when they can't tell us what they really think, the only thing left for them to do is to get back at us by trying to lay a guilt trip on us. We haven't been "compassionate" enough to minorities or we haven't grovelled sufficiently at the foot of the gods of political correctness (cultural Marxists) and we haven't gladly volunteered to pay unending "reparations" for slavery, and on and on, the socialists and Marxists continue the litany of our shortcomings! It all gets a little tedious after awhile.

Now Bernie wants all of us white Americans to apologize for slavery (again). Bernie, if you'll humbly pardon my saying it, you are, as the British say "right 'round the bend." My ancestors came here, most of them, from North England and Scotland, in the 1880s so we never owned slaves during the War of Northern Aggression--not that it would have made any difference anyway. So, Bernie, you'll have to pardon me if I don't feel real guilty about the slavery issue.  As long as you are spreading the guilt around, what about those black African chiefs that sold their own people to slave traders? Or what about free blacks in this country that owned slaves? Any guilt for them? I didn't think so, just for us white folks, right?

So now you want us to feel guilty because  some black folks don't have as much as we do right? Tell you something, Bernie, my wife and I drive around in a 17 year old car because that's all we can afford. Most of the blacks I know here in North Louisiana have got much newer and better cars than the one we have. And the few that I run into that try to talk to me about "white privilege"  are a little put off when I tell them how old our car is compared to what they are driving. At that point they don't have much more to say. They work at changing the subject, which, somehow, doesn't solve the problem.

So let's look briefly at some of these downtrodden black folks. What about Oprah? She's got to be one of the wealthiest people in the world. If we are going to abide by your old socialist credo about redistribution of the wealth then maybe she should give some of us poor white folks some of what she's got. We don't always have all we could use and she's got more than she needs by a long shot--so what about a little redistribution of the wealth there? Oh, I see, it doesn't work that way does it?

When you and your socialist and Marxist friends finish with your anti-white diatribes we are all contritely supposed to line up with silver in our palms right?  Well, Bernie, you're white, at least from the photos I have seen you look white, and you've got more than most of us have got. So if we are going to play the "redistribution of the wealth" game it seems to me that you should get at the head of the line because you've got much more wealth to be redistributed than most of us have.

In fact, as a good socialist, you should be out there thinking about where you can give most of yours away, because if you want equal income redistribution for us, then you, as a good socialist, should lead by example shouldn't you? You and Hillary and most of the people in this current regime are all socialists and/or Marxists of one stripe or another and yet it seems to me that you all have lots more money than us poor folks. So why aren't you all spreading your wealth around to help the poor and needy--and I don't mean by passing another welfare bill in Congress that we, not you, will be paying for, I mean by reaching down into your own pockets and really digging deep to enable the poor and downtrodden to lift themselves up by your bootstraps. Isn't that what good socialists do?

You could start off by giving up those fat congressional pay raises that are always voted for at 1 a.m. in the morning, by voice votes, so that we don't know how many of you have "appropriated" money from us to keep your standard of living way, way above ours. How about passing up those big congressional vacations that we the people end up paying for? How about doing away with all those congressional perks that we pay for? If I didn't know better it would seem to me that your socialist "redistribution of the wealth" program is a one-way street. We pay and you "redistribute" to your friends and business colleagues.

Bernie, I don't know how to break it to you any gentler than this--I am not about to feel guilty over slavery I had nothing to do with. I am not about to be ashamed of the culture and heritage of the part of the country I live in.  I won't play that game--and neither should anyone else. However, if you want to play it, let me ask you a question. Since you are from New England, and just about all the ships that carried slaves to this country originated in New England, do you feel guilty enough to be willing to take your fat bankroll out of your pocket and hand it to the race-baiters so you can assuage your personal guilt for the slave trade?  I didn't think so!
