Hilarious. Just jaw dropping.
Some events do take place but are not true; others are—although they never occurred. Elie Wiesel
The nutcase Beck had on with him said that Washington had "Free blacks on his general staff throughout the war." Since I cannot imagine anyone being that stupid, the only conclusion is that he is jut a damn liar. No negro was ever in a position where he could issue commands to White American soldiers until after World War II.
Outside the fevered precincts of New England, negro lovers were at least as scarce in the North as in the South. Several states, including Lincoln's Illinois, had laws making it a felony for a free negro to enter the state. The law stayed on the books in Illinois until the war was over.
In 1860, only months before I fired that first cannon ball into Fort Sumter, Wisconsin, the birthplace of the Republican Party, held a referendum on giving negroes full citizenship, whereby they could be jurors and voters. The referendum was soundly defeated!
In 1864, as Sheridan carried out Lincoln's order to strip the Shennandoah Valley of all kinds of provisions so that "A crow flying across the valley would have to carry his food," negroes deserted and fled north. When they got to the Ohio River, the old men and young boys of the Buckeye state gathered on the north bank and fired upon the negroes attempting to cross into their state.
Again, other than the flaming hypocrites of New England, virtually all Americans had a healthy racial view for the first century and a half of the Republic's existence. Northerners of the Midwest and West shared the views of Lincoln, as stated in his first inaugural. They could care less about the darkies enslaved in the South, so long as none of them came to their states. They opposed the extension of slavery into the territories for the same reason---they didn't want Negroes in those states.
The hypocrisy of New England blue bloods is of monumental proportions, just as it has always been. A century and a half ago, they entertained the mulatto, Douglass, and his White skank in their drawing rooms, where they discussed Voltaire and Milton. They were firmly convinced that within every one of the 3 million negroes enslaved in Dixie there lurked a philosopher, just waiting for them to free him.
In the antebellum South, as contemporary writings show, and as the slaves in Roosevelt's "Slave Narratives" attest, it was customary for the Mistress of the plantation to render medical care to slaves who were sick or hurt, sometimes staying at their bedsides all night. In New England at the outbreak of the war, a 12 year old girl could me mangled by her loom in a Yankee mill, and be thrown out into the alley, without any medical help at all.
It is very likely that when Harriet Beecher Stowe took a break from writing her screed about "Uncle Tom," and raised her window for fresh air, she could hear the cries of the children who were broken and torn in the mills.
There really is nothing new under the sun.
PS: "Black Founders" would certainly be something new. Beck is a looney.
