Obama is not the first famous black writer to pull the wool over the establishment’s eyes

Jack Cashill tells a story I never knew (no doubt because I grew up on the MSM).  Roots was a fraud, from beginning to end — but what an important fraud, because it managed to remove Muslims from the slave trade.

    Of course. It would be inconvenient for the Democrats to ally with blacks and Muslims, while at the same time decrying slavery, when records exist to demonstrate that blacks and Muslims owned and got rich off the slave trade.

    It’s too much psychological stress. Even the best Leftists can only hold so many contradictory beliefs at the same time. there is a breaking point past which they won’t be able to flex.


    “Bethesda Author Settles ‘Roots’ Suit for $500,000”
    I had a vague memory of the headline, but had no idea of all the background on Haley’s book. Cashill’s post would make for a great book – of course, he would be derided as a racist for telling the truth.
    The old axium, ‘don’t believe anything you read and half of what you see’ sure rings true enough.

    Part of the propaganda operation the Left engages in to create core fundamental premises upon which the Left then advances Nigerian style cons, concerns the groundwork which Roots contributes to. This groundwork creates the justification used for further advanced work.
    By spreading the evidence out amongst different times and authors, you ensure that you can bring both authority and peer pressure on individuals: to make them believe much as they accuse Victorian England of suppressing sexuality. This is designed to make people conform in suppressing the truth for themselves, their neighbors, and their co-workers. By making it so that everyone ‘knows’ there is racism, you make it more likely that others will go along to get along.
    This is not a propaganda operation you can carry out and fund in a few years. This has taken decades of work. The Left is tireless. They are motivated. They will never stop. There is no compromise that will fix the problems they cause. Least of all, with them.

    Name 3 things off the top of your head that the Left accuses their enemies of being, and then apply the principle of human projection as a mental defense and see how many of the 3 is actually true for the Left. See how many of the 3 are actually required by the Left for the Left’s goals to function.
    They don’t like conformity and suppression? Oh, is that so. They don’t like repression and monolithic, non-diversified views? Check it to see if it is so.
