“Every great religious revival in America has led to an advance in Civil Rights–from the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights, to the end of slavery and the pursuit of racial equality but all this has been achieved in the face of established power structures strongly and often violently opposed to these rights. So this is a time of choosing…to keep open the doors of religious liberty. If we do so, then we will make possible the next great awakening in America…”

Tennessee Elementary School ‘Nation of Islam’ Handout Portrays Founding Fathers as Racists

Nation of IslamNation of Islam Handout at Harold McCormick Elementary School
in Elizabethton, Tennessee

(FOX News) The Mother of an 8 yr old wants to know why a Tennessee school teacher gave her child a handout from the ‘Nation of Islam’ portraying our beloved presidents as racists.

Sommer Bauer says that her son was given the ‘Nation of Islam’ handout at Harold McCormick Elementary School which asks: “What Does It Take to Be on Mount Rushmore?”

The handout then explains that George Washington hailed from Virginia “a prime breeder of black people.” Of Theodore Roosevelt, it’s alleged he called African Americans “ape like.” There are also disparaging remarks made of Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln.

Where oh where is the ACLU? What ever happened to that ‘separation of church and state’ thing that they are always arguing and threatening legal action at a drop of a hat against Christians?

Rediscovering Columbus, Not ‘Indigenous Peoples’ Day

Indigenous PeoplesHappy Columbus Indigenous Peoples Day –Image: AJ Stream@Twitter

(CNS News) Pandering to his Loony Liberal Lefty political base, President Obama on Friday, proclaimed the 13 October as Columbus Day noting that a “new history” launched by Italian explorer Christopher Columbus’ discovery of the new world included the history of American Indians which Obama said, is “marred with a long and shameful chapters of violence, disease and deprivation.”

In 2008 Myrna Blyth in the National Review wrote about the true history of Columbus Day that the Loony Liberal Kool-Aid drinking political left would rather not Americans to remember about Columbus Day–once a day of pride, a time for school children to honor a great explorer.

For years, history books portrayed Columbus heroically, as a great visionary and adventurer. In 1892 the 400th anniversary of Columbus voyage was such a big deal that there were festivities in every state, planned years in advance but by 1992 it was practically ignored–in fact, the Natl Conference of Churches declared the anniversary was “not a time for celebration” but one for “reflection and repentance”  in which whites must acknowledge a continuing history of “oppression, degradation and genocide.”

One thing most of us don’t know is that the ‘Pledge of Allegiance’ (something else that the Loony Liberal Left loves to hate too–I digress) was originally written for schoolchildren to recite as part of the 1892 Columbus Day celebration.

Twelve million children put their hands on their hearts and spoke 23 words and school children have been reciting it ever since with slight modification–those children pledged allegiance to “My Flag.” With so many immigrants coming into America in the 19th and 20th centuries, the wording was changed to make it crystal clear that everyone pledged allegiance to the same flag, “the flag of the United States of America.”

Nowadays, Columbus isn’t PC, his skills as a seaman are ignored and even his determination as an entrepreneur is forgotten…

Democrat Dolt N.Y. Senator Chuckie Schumer Credits Thomas Jefferson for Bill of Rights

Chuckie SchumerIn March, Sen Chuckie Schumer Failed 1st Grade Calendar Reading

(Washington Times) Sen Chuck Schumer stumbled over basic American history on Tuesday, crediting Thomas Jefferson for authorship of the ‘Bill of Rights’ during a debate over the 1st Amendment and campaign finance.

“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the ‘Bill of Rights’ on whats being proposed here, he’d agree with it, he would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute,” said Schumer.

While Jefferson is deemed the principle author of the ‘Declaration of Independence’ he was not intimately involved in the writing of the ‘Constitution or the Bill of Rights’ and in-fact was serving as the Minister of France at the time of both the Constitutional Convention and the Congressional debate over the ‘Bill of Rights.’

Jefferson’s fellow Virginians’ James Madison and George Mason are usually credited are being more influential in the process–Mason for being among the most forceful in demanding the protections of such a ‘Bill of Rights’ and Madison, for being the political muscle that got them approved.

“Madison’s support of the ‘Bill of Rights’ was of critical significance,” the National Archives writes on its webpage: “One of the new representatives from Virginia to the First Federal Congress as established by the new Constitution, he worked tirelessly to persuade the Hose to enact the amendments.”

The National Archives goes on to recount Madison’s efforts to shepherd a package of 17 Amendments through the House in 1789 a number that was later trimmed to 12 in the Senate before being submitted to the States–Of those, 10 were ratified fairly quickly.

One would hope that a sitting U.S. Senator would familiarize himself with American History before attempting to change the Constitution for political purposes.

The new Constitutional Amendment that Schumer is pushing, would grant to federal lawmakers the power to control free speech or whatever they would deem is objectionable to them.
