- Cory Booker: “Bigotry Was Written Into Our Founding Documents”
- Cory Booker: “…without the truth there can be no reconciliation.”
- Veritas PAC: We sincerely doubt if this guy can handle the truth*
Where do you even start with this guy? He is so utterly wrapped up in hate, ingratitude, racism…Cory Booker is , so obviously, a tortured, demented soul
No gun purchases for him
It is chilling, indeed, that he is a member of the US Senate. Who, in private life, would ever hire this guy for anything. If one has a business, it would seem hardly safe to have him around customers, much less in close contact with fellow employees.
While he has, himself, declared that he has delusions…he calls them “spartacus moments”…there is no assurance that, given some bizarre stimulus, he could have a “George Hennard Moment”* (this is described below. Hennard perpetrated the infamous “Luby Cafeteria” massacre in 1991 in which he murdered 23 people and seriously injured 20 more. As he was killing, Hennard screamed: “This is what Bell County has done to me!”
Perhaps Cory’s fellow senators should keep that in mind when they hear Senator Booker so profoundly lament all the ills the founding of this nation has visited on him and his community”. )
We wish another Senator would ask Booker ~~ what country was foundationally, in terms of governing documents, superior to the US back in 1787? What African “country” did not enslave its rivals and sell them into slavery, to other Blacks, to Muslims, to Europeans, to the highest bidder? In what settled continent was slavery not practiced by indigenous peoples? Did African “nations” stop selling captured rivals after the US outlawed the slave trade (importation) in 1807, a year after England? What race never experienced slavery? Senator Booker do your ancestors include any who SOLD others into bondage or PARTICIPATED in the warring and capture of others to be sold as slaves at the behest of the tribal leadership? Where do you get your racial linked moral superiority?
(CNSNews.com) – Sen. Cory Booker (D.-N.J.) said in a speech at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, S.C. on Wednesday that bigotry was written into the founding documents of the United States and that white supremacy has “always been a part of the American story.”
“Bigotry was written into our founding documents. Native Americans, in our Declaration of Independence, were referred to as savages,” Booker said. “In our Constitution, black people are fractions of human beings.
“White supremacy has always been a problem in our America story,” he said. “If not always at the surface, then looking not so far beneath it.”
Here is a transcript of the part of Booker’s speech where he says that “bigotry was written into our founding documents”:
“Bigotry was written into our founding documents. Native Americans, in our Declaration of Independence, were referred to as savages. In our Constitution, black people are fractions of human beings.
“White supremacy has always been a problem in our America story. If not always at the surface, then looking not so far beneath it.
“We have seen it from slave masters who stole and pillage black bodies for profit, to demagogues throughout generations who stoked racist and anti-immigrant hatred, often for votes, and then enshrined this bigotry into our laws.
“And, yes, racist violence has always been a part of the American story. Never more so than in times of transition and times of rapid social change. We have seen it from the Civil War to the Civil Rights Movement, from the summer of 100 years ago to Charlottesville, from the lynching of people of Mexican descent in Port Veneer, Texas, 101 years ago, to the massacred targeting LatinX people in El Paso, Texas, this last Saturday.
“To say this is to speak the truth plainly, because without the truth there can be no reconciliation.”
On October 16th, 1991, George Hennard, of Bell County Texas, drove his pick-up truck through the window of a Luby’s Cafeteria. The carnage that followed later became known as the Luby’s Massacre. Hennard crawled out of the vehicle and screamed at the top of his voice: “This is what Bell County has done to me!” before shooting the man closest to him, who had come to assist with the crash. He then ordered everyone not to move, before systematically targeting and stalking women (against whom he was bitterly prejudiced) and shooting them at point blank range with his Glock pistol. . . .
According to David Stannard’s American Holocaust, 50% of African deaths occurred in Africa as a result of wars between native kingdoms, which produced the majority of slaves. This includes not only those who died in battles, but also those who died as a result of forced marches from inland areas to slave ports on the various coasts. The practice of enslaving enemy combatants and their villages was widespread throughout Western and West Central Africa, although wars were rarely started to procure slaves. The slave trade was largely a by-product of tribal and state warfare as a way of removing potential dissidents after victory or financing future wars.
However, some African groups proved particularly adept and brutal at the practice of enslaving others, such as Oyo, Benin, Igala, Kaabu, Asanteman, Dahomey, the Aro Confederacy and the Imbangala war bands. By the end of this process, no fewer than 18.3 million people would be herded into “factories” to await shipment to the New World.
The kings of Dahomey sold their war captives into transatlantic slavery, who otherwise would have been killed in a ceremony known as the Annual Customs. As one of West Africa’s principal slave states, Dahomey became extremely unpopular with neighbouring peoples. King Gezo of Dahomey said in the 1840s:
The slave trade is the ruling principle of my people. It is the source and the glory of their wealth…the mother lulls the child to sleep with notes of triumph over an enemy reduced to slavery…
