The answer to the #WhiteLivesMatter question is that historians today are far left, academic dweebs and they write the history books. “Educators” who write curriculum and choose text books for K-12 schools make historians look like Barry Goldwater.
There’s much screaming about “reparations” for blacks because of slavery and I not only support that, I’m in favor of expanding it. Here’s just part of what you’ll not hear from the far left about slavery.
Much attention and condemnation has been directed towards the tragedy of the African slave trade, which took place between the 16th and the 19th centuries. However, another equally despicable trade in humans was taking place around the same time in the Mediterranean. It is estimated that up to 1.25 million Europeans were enslaved by the so-called Barbary corsairs, and their lives were just as pitiful as their African counterparts. They have come to be known as the white slaves of Barbary.
That’s right, whites were held in slavery too. Guess who the Barbary pirates were? If you guessed “Muslims” you win.
“One of the things that both the public and many scholars have tended to take as given is that slavery was always racial in nature,” said historian Robert Davis, author of Christian Slaves, Muslim Masters: White Slavery in the Mediterranean, the Barbary Coast, and Italy. “But that is not true,” he added.
In comments which may stoke controversy, Davis claims that white slavery had been minimised or ignored because academics preferred to treat Europeans as evil colonialists rather than as victims.
Note that Davis is a historian. Probably not a really popular historian among those who practice the craft. But then truth-tellers are seldom popular among their lying peers.
Slavery is widespread even today. And again, you get to guess who is enslaving people – primarily blacks from Africa. If you guessed “Muslims” you win again. Muslims have been at the forefront of enslaving people for 1,400 years and their “prophet” Mohammed was a slave owner and Quran justifies slavery.
Today, here’s just a little slice of the Muslim business of slavery in Africa.
Slavery is widespread today and it’s run by Muslims with the silence of so-called first world nations. You haven’t heard a peep about this from Barack Obama have you?
No, and for two reasons. First of all, #WhiteLivesMatter isn’t even on his – or the left’s – agenda. You’re a racist if you mention that. Second, #BlackLives Matter is nothing but a fraud. The only black lives that matter to the community organizer community are those black punks who’ve been shot by police, typically in the midst of breaking the law.
I didn’t forget about my comment supporting “reparations.” I support reparations and here’s why. Slavery is institutional with Muslims. They were heavily involved in the black slave trade in the 17th – 19th centuries and are still involved in slavery. They’re also sitting on pools of oil and oil money. So, how about we distribute that oil money to the victims of Islam who’ve been enslaved.
That solves two problems. First, it shuts up the “reparations” crowd, they get their cash and it doesn’t disrupt the U.S. economy. Second, it sucks all the money currently paying for terrorism around the world out of Muslim hands. I don’t much care where it goes as long as Muslim are reduced to sticks and stones.
