The conservative folk and tea-party types, and those who call themselves the “Real Americans” have been talking about anarchy quoting Jefferson for a long time, as they prepared for war on its people. They often quote this particular founding father and slave-holding racist, who fathered many children by slaves he owned:
“When the government fears the people it’s liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.”
As we have witnessed the horrifying news of current events; namely police killings, no justice, and abuse of government powers that prophecy may be being for-filled. To put this in perspective, the definition of these words according to Webster’s Dictionary:
Terror – Any period of frightful violence or bloodshed, violence or threats of violence used for intimidation or coercion.
Liberty – Freedom from control, interference, obligation, restriction, and hampering conditions, etc., right of doing, thinking, and speaking according to choice.
Anarchy – Political and social disorder due to the absence of governmental control: lawlessness, disruption, and turmoil.
Considering the conditions the government has created, each of these words is relevant. The moral high-ground has been shown to be a facade for all the world to see, as black people have known for centuries. Frankly, the only people pretending that this is not true are the so-called “Real American’s”.
These folks will never admit that the land they love was erected upon the plunder of land, slaughter of life and this imaginary thing [to black people] called liberty. White America has played this game forever but now people have had enough and a vehicle where the truth can no longer be suppressed.
Our grandfathers listened to Dr. King when he told them to pray, and you will get to the Promise Land – they believe him. What he did not tell them was it was their capture and enslavement that took them from the Promise Land when they were placed on board the Good Ship Jesus!
The youth of today don’t believe the hype and understand that “black lives matter! This is not your grandfathers Civil Right Movement. They would rather die on their feet than to continue living on their knees, as they recall Nate Turners words before he was hung – “they crucified Jesus didn’t they”.
The making of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. into a cultural icon or electing a black president cannot fool people or change its racist past. It’s been four centuries of this heinous ungodly treatment – it is time for change – reign in the cop’s, put an end to their occupation and terror – it must stop. Race is the problem in your heart at its core – not from the souls of black America who has continued to suffer!
The entire world is watching as police brutally killed its black citizens for the most trivial offenses. Leaving the fatalities to die in the streets as spectacles in the most appalling disrespectful inhumane form of injustice, not to mention the military style response to peaceful protests.
This movement will not settle for anything less than what they claim to bring others around the world. No more murders, no more voter restriction, a fair justice system, freedom, equality, and most of all to live without terror from the law. Maybe the question asked is, who are the terrorists? And that’s my thought provoking perspective…
