‘Never report a lie and never refuse to publish the truth’

Following below, for example, this is what radical Leftists & the MSM will never tell us …

Like The New York Times’ series, USA TODAY’s major feel-good series, 1619: Searching for Answers could produce more white guilt than any revelations about slavery. Both series were a sham, a shame, and a scheme to make living Americans feel guilt for slavery! It was an attempt to provide a face to the curse of slavery in America: that of Wanda Tucker who believes she is the ancestor of one of the 20 Angolan slaves sold in America in 1619.

She may be right but, of course, she is probably wrong. However, the paper—with missionary zeal—does a yeoman’s job to support her dreams, desires, and delusions even though it is a hopeless and impossible task.

Wanda is an ordained Baptist minister and college professor whose grandiose aspirations for a slave connection, if accepted as true, might promote her into historical significance. She has about the same chance of proving her famous ancestry as one of the ranting Democrats has of becoming President.

Angola is a huge nation roughly an 800 mile square along Africa’s western Atlantic Coast made up of rugged highlands, a huge plateau, farmlands, a desert, and mountains. It is rich in wild animal life such as giraffes, buffaloes, zebras, gorillas, chimpanzees, black rhinoceros, wildebeests, lions, hyenas, and leopards.

It also has a vast number of two-legged animals known as political leaders although they are thugs, thieves, and totalitarians. The nation is run by former general Joao Lourenco who was trained in Moscow; and the media, the money, and the military are controlled by him and the Marxist People’s Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA). Protestors are not treated well.

The country is rich in precious gems, metals, diamonds, gold, iron, cotton, coffee, and plenty of farmland. The nation has abundant natural resources, and it ranks among the highest of the oil-producing countries in sub-Saharan Africa. Most of the oil revenues go to the government resulting in a long simmering reaction toward the money grabbers.

The first of the lengthy series with a substantial amount of errors, exaggerations, and embellishments is loaded with feel-good revisionist history to give Blacks a feeling of importance and produce a wagonload of guilt on living Whites who have no culpability.

The article was headed, “Wanda Tucker’s spiritual journey to where the slave trade began.” No, that despicable trade started thousands of years earlier and race had nothing to do with it. Slavery was usually a result of wars and most slaves have been white.

Continuing Tucker’s search for her ancestor, Deborah Barfield Berry and Kelley Benham French, added, “Wanda’s family invokes a deep sense of pride whether it is provable or not.” How can one have pride, especially a “deep sense of pride” in an illusion or maybe delusion; for sure, not a conclusion?

The authors opined, “Her academic training never undermined her faith in her family’s history. Just because it wasn’t on paper didn’t mean it wasn’t true.” However, there is not a scintilla of proof that it was her family’s history. Moreover, it is also possibly true that one of the Socialist candidates could become president but don’t bet the farm on it.

The white Portuguese officials in Angola traded guns in return for slaves and with superior weapons, black chiefs captured and sold natives on a far larger scale providing funds to provoke intertribal warfare that produced even more slaves.

We are told “Historians had learned fairly recently that the first African-Americans had been captured here.” Note captured, but not captured by black chiefs and sold to unscrupulous Portuguese slavers. The article did not mention that Angola was the home of Anthony Johnson, a black man who became a large landowner in Jamestown and owned many slaves, including some Whites. Just an oversite.

The article managed to work in a criticism of President Trump’s comments on Baltimore’s problems and his criticism of the four “women of color.” Wanda allegedly thought of all that and “saw brown children in cages at the U.S. and Mexico border. She saw black boys being shot in the street.

No, Wanda “saw” none of that. In her mind’s eye she saw what she wanted to see—what she was looking for.

Wow, such literary gymnastics deserve a Pulitzer Prize but since Trump is blamed for mass shootings, the border mess, bad race relations, and the coming recession, that’s reasonable to everyone gazing at their navel standing in far left field. After all, everyone knows President Trump is responsible for sunspots, dandruff, bad weather, arthritis, and hot flashes.

The USA TODAY article opined about the black “queen” “Njinga, who came to power [in the 1600s]…is the most awe-inspiring of the Angolan ancestors….Something stirred in Wanda, seeing an entire country honor a black woman for her leadership and strength.” Njinga was ambassador to the Portuguese and later assumed power over the kingdoms after the death of her brother.
