Keep the Iowa Standard Going!
One of the first things Stalin did when he took power was to alter Russian history. The Bolshevik Revolution required remaking the minds of the Russian people. To do that, history had to be censored, distorted and rewritten.
We are witnessing something similar in our very own country and it is deeply disturbing. Senator Tim Kaine would make Stalin proud. On the floor of the Senate, he said the following last week:
“…The United States didn’t inherit slavery from anybody. We created it. It got created by the Virginia General Assembly and the legislatures of other states. It got created by the court systems in colonial America that enforced fugitive slave laws.”
Is he that ignorant or does he hate our country so much that he feels the need to distort our history and put America in the worst possible light? Or does he think he can benefit politically by lying to incite more racial strife? Whatever the reason, a man who is spewing false history on the floor of the Senate is not worthy to serve in that body.
The first Africans who arrived in Virginia in 1619 were indentured servants. The Portuguese had developed the Atlantic slave trade 150 years earlier. European colonies did not have to “invent” slavery. It was already part of the culture of that day. America inherited it.
Furthermore, there was no “United States” when the first Africans arrived on this continent. There was no America as we know it. There were British colonists who came from Europe where slavery was a fact of life. America did not invent slavery or the slave trade. Establishing codes for management of slavery, while abhorrent, is not the same as “creating” the institution itself. This is not a justification of slavery, but acknowledgement of the realities of the 17th century world and the context of slavery’s introduction to this continent.
Why is it that Americans like Tim Kaine are so determined to teach people to think the worst of our own country? Why do they stay here if they have nothing but contempt for America? Why do they want to serve in government if they have nothing but disdain for the United States? Tim Kaine should resign from the Senate and renounce his citizenship. He should relocate to some other nation of which he can be proud. Help us at STAND to expose such anti-American propaganda and offer a vision for the future of our country that brings us together instead of ripping us apart.
Kaine fails to mention that slavery was indigenous to Africa, and that African Muslims introduced Europeans to the immoral practice. He does not acknowledge that slavery couldn’t have happened without the cooperation of African kingdoms and tribes. He says slaves were taken against their will, but does not acknowledge that fellow Africans were their captors.
Slavery is not a racial problem, but a human problem that still exists in various parts of the world. By contrast, America is a land of freedom.
Mauritania, in Africa, has a vibrant slave trade to this day. Human trafficking is a form of slavery, and people of all races are perpetrating it and being victimized by it. But Tim Kaine and America haters like him are so obsessed with getting and keeping power that they would slander our country to pander to the radicals who support them.
Starting 400 years ago, as the economies of Europe, North and South America and the West Indies came to rely upon slave labor, slavery was institutionalized. Creating rules and order for the subjugation of conquered people has been happening throughout human history. It is not unique.
Nevertheless, only one nation founded itself on this lofty idea:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
These are some of the greatest words ever written. They have resonated through the centuries. They have been quoted by people all over the world. It seems that the only place those words are devalued is among the socialists and communists who want to tear our country down. They started with the lawless destruction of Confederate statues. Now they are attacking Ulysses S. Grant, Teddy Roosevelt, Thomas Jefferson and even George Washington. They are defacing war memorials to our fallen heroes who gave their lives for our liberty. Tim Kaine and other demagogues like him are trying to destroy our beloved country. We cannot allow Marxists to do to America what Stalin did in the Soviet Union – change history to suit his agenda and keep himself in power. Help us to stay true to America’s national destiny of hope, freedom and opportunity. Help us to defend and preserve our history. That is the only way to stop tyranny and totalitarianism from robbing us of the legacy of liberty.
I’ll stick with Washington and Jefferson over a hack politician like Tim Kaine any time. Kaine and all of his anti-American comrades can leave. I wish they would. It would be a favor to the rest of us.
We can then build on the legacy of our Founding Fathers. They weren’t perfect people, but neither are we. What we have in common with them is a love of liberty and love of country. It’s time for patriots to unite against the mob who hates everything America represents. We cannot allow them to delegitimize, destabilize and deconstruct our country.
We are in this fight until we win, and we will win. We cannot be defeated if we will not quit because we are on God’s side. So is America, if we have anything to say about it.
May God bless you and your family and may He continue to bless the United States of America.
For God & Country.
