Only those with a destructive agenda oppose the sane solution to racial conflict espoused by America's founders.

WHAT PASSES for history these days in the controlled media and in
the public schools is becoming more and more removed from the realm of
reality. The reason this is happening is because the truth about our
Founding Fathers and about the history of America makes the present-day
political establishment very uncomfortable.
So our media masters and the lying politicians who serve them must
hide the truth about our history, or be exposed for the traitors and
fakers that most of them are.
One area where truth is notably absent is in so-called Black
History. Our schoolchildren are being taught incredible whoppers, such
as the claim that Hannibal and Cleopatra and Beethoven were Black, that
the ancient Egyptians were Black, that a Black co-discovered the North
Pole with Admiral Peary, and that a Black man was the developer of
blood plasma technology.
Even more insidious, our children are being taught blatant untruths
about our past, about our Founding Fathers and other major
personalities of American history, whose words are being edited and
altered to make them consonant with the Third World America that
certain forces are trying to build.
Before I go forward with the main subject of my show, let me just take a minute and set the record straight with regard to the tall tales that too often pass for "Black history." Some of these whoppers are a
result of over-enthusiastic history-rewriters, anxious to find as many
Black contributions to history as possible -- scholarship be damned,
mistakenly associating everything on the continent of Africa with Black
people. As any high-school graduate could have told you thirty years
ago before our schools had been totally corrupted, Africa north of the
Sahara is and always was inhabited mainly by Caucasians of various kinds,
not by Black people. Hannibal was White, as his contemporary portrait
sculpture testifies. Cleopatra was of pure Greek descent. The ancient
Egyptians were also undoubtedly Caucasians, though in later years there
was some intermarriage with their Black slaves. As to Beethoven, that
absurd allegation can be disproved by contemporary portraiture. Matthew
Henson, who was Black, was Admiral Peary's valet, and nothing more. And Charles Drew, who did have a hand in the development of the use of blood plasma, was only fractionally Black.
It's interesting to note that Abraham Lincoln's birthday falls in
the month which has lately been designated by our masters as "Black
History Month," the month of February. I do not know for certain if
this was a purposeful decision on the part of the change agents who
created this celebration, but it would not surprise me. For it is upon
the persona and career of Abraham Lincoln that they have built a great
mythology justifying the current unfair and unequal system of minority
favoritism that it is our misfortune to live under.
Lincoln: the record
Abraham Lincoln, they say, was a great exponent of racial equality
who freed the slaves, and had he lived, would have been an enthusiastic
advocate of "civil rights" for Blacks as we understand that term today.
Well, ladies and gentlemen, I'm here to tell you today that nothing
could be further from the truth. If Abraham Lincoln were alive today he
would be attacked by the controlled media as the most despicable bigot
and racist this world has ever seen, far to the right of even David Duke.
Don't believe me? I will not ask you to believe me -- I will only ask
you to listen to what I am about to reveal to you from contemporary
historical documents and the writings of Mr. Lincoln himself.
I offer the following facts and statements in a spirit of good will
to all. My purpose is not to lionize or to criticize Abraham Lincoln.
My purpose is not to use Mr. Lincoln as a mouthpiece for my or anyone
else's views. I offer this information to all who hear me, whatever
their race or political viewpoint, in the spirit of objective truth
only. Remember, you will be hearing Lincoln's words, not mine.
First I will quote from the text of the Emancipation Proclamation itself:
"I, Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States, and
commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy thereof, do hereby proclaim and
declare that... it is my purpose upon the next meeting of Congress to
again recommend... the immediate or gradual abolishment of Slavery...
and that the effort to colonize persons of African descent, with their
consent, upon the continent or elsewhere, with the previously obtained
consent of the government existing there, will be continued; that on
the first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight
hundred and sixty three, all persons held as slaves within any State,
or any designated part of a State, the people whereof shall then be in
rebellion against the United States, shall be then, thenceforward and
Even the Emancipation Proclamation itself makes it clear that
Lincoln's policy was to give the slaves their freedom, yes -- but also
to grant them the real freedom of a life in their own country in
Africa; thus the reference to "colonize persons of African
descent...upon the continent [of Africa]...."
Shortly after reading the Proclamation to his cabinet, President
Lincoln met with a group of prominent free Blacks in the White House.
The purpose of the meeting: to enter into a general program which would
solve the race problem through a peaceful and voluntary separation of
Lincoln's viewpoint that separation of the races was the best
solution to the problems of slavery and racial conflict was not a
hastily-adopted political position. He had considered the problem for
many years, and had spoken and written often on behalf of freedom and
African colonization. For example, he stated in one of the famous
"I will say, then, that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of
bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the
white and black races -- that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of
making voters or jurors of Negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold
office, nor to inter-marry with white people; and I will say in
addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white
and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races
living together on terms of social and political equality."
Lincoln further stated in the Lincoln-Douglas debates, specifically
on the subject of repatriation of those of African descent to Africa:
"Such separation, if effected at all, must be effected by
colonization... what colonization most needs is a hearty will.... Let
us be brought to believe that it is morally right, and at the same time
favorable to, or at least not against, our interests to transfer the
African to his native clime, and we shall find a way to do it, however
great the task may be."
Some of the vendors of fake history have made the claim, when
confronted with these unimpeachable quotations from President Lincoln,
that he changed his mind on the subject in the years after he issued
the Emancipation Proclamation. But according to the autobiography of
Union General Benjamin F. Butler, Abraham Lincoln made the following
statement in a conversation with Butler in early April 1865, less than
two weeks before his assassination on April 15th:
"But what shall we do with the negroes after they are free? I can
hardly believe that the South and the North can live in peace, unless
we can get rid of the negroes. ...You have been a staunch friend of the
[Black] race from the time you first advised me to enlist them at New
Orleans. You have had a good deal of experience in moving bodies of men
by water, - your movement up the James was a magnificent one. Now, we
shall have use for our very large navy; what, then, are our
difficulties in sending all the blacks away? ...I fear a race war.... I
wish you would carefully examine the question and give me your views
upon it and go into the figures, as you did before in some degree, so
as to show whether the negroes can be exported."
Now, remember, friends, these are not my words. These are the words
of President Abraham Lincoln. It is a sad day in America when a man can
be denied his freedom of speech, as sometimes happens these days, or
lose his job, because he expresses essentially the same viewpoint that
President Lincoln espoused.
Now President Lincoln is not the only American historical figure
whose views have been misrepresented by the media, the government, and
the academy. Thomas Jefferson has sadly suffered the same fate of
having his words edited to "fit in" with currently fashionable
"politically correct" ideology.
In Washington, DC; not too far from the shores of the Potomac
River, and also not too far from the "adult bookstores," burned-out and
boarded-up buildings, hulks of stripped and abandoned cars, and the
corpses of the victims of the daily gang murders in that city; stands
one of the most beautiful buildings on this planet. I am speaking of
that awe-inspiring rotunda of classic Greek proportions, the Jefferson Memorial
On the inside walls of the rotunda are engraved in the massive blocks
of marble many of Jefferson's more famous quotations, including his "I
have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility against every form
of tyranny over the mind of man." Well, it is just such a tyranny
that we labor under today, and it is my dolorous duty to inform you
that, even in the Jefferson Memorial itself, his words have been edited
to deceive the reader. On one of these marble panels are carved the
"Nothing is more certainly written in the book of fate than that
these people [the Blacks] are to be free. [period!]" Now let me read
you the full quotation of that sentence of Thomas Jefferson's, from
which the preceding was only a misleading extract.
This is from Thomas Jefferson's autobiography, first published by
his grandson, Thomas Jefferson Randolph in 1829 and again published by
special Act of Congress in 1853. The original manuscript is in the
National Archives in Washington, DC, if they haven't used it to wrap
crack cocaine in yet. I quote from page 51, dated January 6, 1821:
"Nothing is more certainly written in the book of fate than that
these people are to be free; [semicolon!] nor is it less certain that
the two races, equally free, cannot live in the same government.
Nature, habit, opinion have drawn indelible lines of distinction
between them. It is still in our power to direct the process of
emancipation and deportation, peaceably, and in such slow degree, as
that the evil will wear off insensibly, and their place be ...filled up
by free White laborers. If, on the contrary, it is left to force itself
on, human nature must shudder at the prospect held up."
I'll give you the deliberately misquoted first sentence of that passage again:
"Nothing is more certainly written in the book of fate than that
these people are to be free; nor is it less certain that the two races,
equally free, cannot live in the same government."
In his book, Notes on the State of Virginia
, volume 8, page 380, Jefferson stated:
"...they [the Blacks] should continue with their parents to a
certain age, then to be brought up, at the public expense, to tillage,
arts, or sciences, according to their geniuses, till the females should
be eighteen and the males twenty-one years of age, when they should be
colonized to such place as the circumstances of the time should render
most proper... to declare them a free and independent people, and to
extend to them our alliance and protection, till they have acquired
strength; and to send vessels, at the same time, to other parts of the
world for an equal number of white inhabitants, to induce them to
That quote can also be found in the well-known Jefferson Cyclopedia
first published by Funk and Wagnalls in 1900 and still available in
many libraries, under entry 7973, "Slaves, Emancipation of."
A peaceful separation
Both Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln were advocates of a
peaceful separation of the races as solution to the multiple problems
and perennial ill-will that characterize any attempt at a multiracial
society. But not only were they advocates on a personal level, they
were active members of an organization dedicated to that same purpose,
called the American Colonization Society, founded in 1817 in
Washington, DC. Among its distinguished members were Francis Scott Key,
John Randolph, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, Charles
Fenton Mercer, John Marshall, Andrew Jackson
, Daniel Webster, Henry Clay, and Abraham Lincoln.
It was the American Colonization Society which arranged for the
purchase of land in Africa, which would eventually form the country
called Liberia. This land was purchased with the intent that freed
slaves would make their homes there in their own all-Black society, and
these plans were actually put into effect, though never on the scale
originally planned. The very name of the country, Liberia, was based on
the Latin word meaning "freedom." The capital of Liberia, Monrovia,
takes its name from President James Monroe, a leading figure in the
Society. And Liberia's flag is almost identical to the Stars and
Stripes, with one large white star replacing our field of stars. To
this day, many of the leading families of Liberia are descended from
freed slaves who migrated there during the nineteenth century.
It wasn't only eminent White American historical figures who
supported this eminently fair and sane solution to racial conflict,
however. Black nationalists such as Marcus Garvey, Paul Cuffe, M. M. L.
Gordon, and Bishop Henry M. Turner lent their support and leadership to
the cause of separation and repatriation also. In 1935, a petition
signed by over 400,000 Blacks was presented to the Franklin Roosevelt
White House, stating in part:
"Given an opportunity in our ancestral Africa, the knowledge of
farming and of simple farm machinery and implements, which we have
acquired here would enable us to carve a frugal but decent livelihood
out of the virgin soil and favorable climate of Liberia... We are a
liability now, and any cost of this project, no matter how great, would
still, we sincerely believe, be a sound investment for the American
Though the Memorialists, as this group of Black nationalists called
themselves, got no help from the Roosevelt White House, which was at
that stage already planning the disastrous multiracial future of this
country, they did succeed in getting the legislature of Virginia to
pass a resolution calling for Federal aid to the colonization movement.
Today, we still see a division in the Black community between integrationists and nationalists. Today Louis Farrakhan is the most widely known of the
nationalists, who want a separate nation, preferably in Africa, where
Blacks would have their own government and a society more in tune with
their natural inclinations and interests. It is the leftist and
communist-associated integrationists, the followers of Martin Luther King,
who are today on the wane among Blacks, and the nationalists who are
riding the crest of a rising wave of separatist sentiment, especially
among young Blacks. The recent idealized cinema portrayal of Malcolm X,
who once said "Give us some land of our own and let us go for
ourselves!," is a part of this growing trend.
There's only one solution
I think it is important for White people to understand that
although the Black nationalists may have some bizarre historical and
biological theories, and while they may call us names like "White
devils" and worse, it is their position of racial separatism that
offers the most direct, most reasonable, and really the only workable
solution to the burgeoning race problem in this country.
The race problem is so pervasive in America that it fills our
newspapers from front to back with crimes, lawsuits, political battles,
job disputes, and other conflicts; it fills our prisons and ruins
countless lives. It absorbs the energies of our nation which could
otherwise be put to productive use. It cries out for a solution.
The philosophy of racial separatism is in harmony with traditional American principles and was in fact, as
I have shown you, the very program espoused by the universally
acknowledged giants of America's political foundation. It cannot be
attacked as "racist" by either side, since large and respected groups
on both sides of the racial line see it as the only answer. The primary
opposition to it comes from the controlled media and the bought
politicians, who seem bound and determined to erect a multiracial
social experiment over the corpse of what used to be America.
