History is being rewritten before our very eyes! 10 years ago, when researching any topic I could find what I was looking for rather easily without wading through page after page of propaganda and Progressive Liberal literature. Now, not so much. Everything, it seems has a liberal spin, even basic historical facts are being changed and not even subtly. For instance, this evening after watching the most amazing docudrama--Grant, I realized that the KKK of the post Civil War was reborn and rebranded in our modern times to be called, White Supremacy, Neo-Nazi, Aryan Nation and the like and Misnomered, "RIGHT WING EXTREMISTS." In my own little town of Coeur d'Alene, Id. we had the infamous, Richard Butler as the leader of The Aryan Nation in Hayden, Id and hailed, "one of the most well known and influential leaders of the American far-right." Ok, so now this is where it gets dicey and although the narrative started spinning many decades prior, it began taking a stronghold in the minds of our nation in the early 70's. Now, because of Butler's presence in this area, it has been forever coined as and now mythed as place of skinheads, racists, and White Supremacy and even some people in town still cling to that ideology...now I am NOT saying that Richard Butler was not a racist any more than I would ever say Hitler loved the Jews. Butler was indeed a racist, vile and disgusting...what I am trying to find out was the exact timeframe that the Democrats had the ability to change the narrative.
I am not going to be laborious over the fact the it was indeed the Democrats that created the KKK because if you follow what I write, you will know this to be true. However, while doing my research this evening I came across this. Now the one thing that I have come to be very aware of is that people don't logically think! Pretty much, not even at all anymore. They can read something that is 100% contradictory and not even try to rationalize it. Take this this for instance...it is from the Associated Press (AP): By CHLOE KIM October 23, 2018 "
CLAIM: The Ku Klux Klan was formed by the Democratic Party.
AP’S ASSESSMENT: False. The Ku Klux Klan was not formed by the Democratic Party.
THE FACTS: The Klan first emerged after the Civil War in an effort to intimidate Southern blacks to stay out of politics and to exploit their labor. It was created in Pulaski, Tennessee, by Confederate veterans: Frank McCord, Richard Reed, John Lester, John Kennedy, J. Calvin Jones and James Crowe. Mark Pitcavage, senior fellow at the Anti-Defamation League’s Center on Extremism, told The Associated Press that it was originally designed “purely for entertainment, with no political motivations.”
"Pitcavage said members engaged in social antics that grew to incorporate cruel pranks. The Klan gradually took on a political tone and by 1867 it began engaging in violent acts. According to Pitcavage, many KKK members were Democrats since the Whig Party had died out and white Southerners disliked the Republican party. He says, though, that the Klan was not started by the Democratic Party “ nor did it have ideological motives until later.”
"By the 1870s the Klan had died out since white Southerners had retaken control of state governments 'through their campaigns of violence and intimidation.' When a new Klan emerged in the 1910s, it attracted members from both parties, as well as members affiliated with no parties. "
"Here’s more information on Facebook’s fact-checking program: https://www.facebook.com/help/1952307158131536 "
"The Associated Press reviewed this story after it was surfaced to third-party fact checkers as part of an initiative with Facebook to assess the accuracy of news content."
Did you read that? I mean REALLY READ THAT? Did you get the spin? This comment from the AP was a very subtle attempt to rewrite history, using, THEIR ASSESSMENT, their mind-blowing contradictory words and throwing in Facebook Fact-Checkers for validation. "Klan emerged...to intimidate Southern Blacks to stay out of politics... Created by "Veterans..." ALL DEMOCRATS. "originally designed “purely for entertainment, with no political motivations.” WHAT? How could this author actually write that with a straight face? So, let's go out and lynch us some Black folks for entertainment! How DARE the AP put out such a shameful comment? See it here. https://apnews.com/afs:Content:2336745806
Just like when I was a kid, I went right to the Encyclopedia Britannica; if it was good enough for me to write my high school English papers, it is good enough for me to take a look at now. "in 1866...The organization quickly became a vehicle for Southern white underground resistance to Radical Reconstruction. Klan members sought the restoration of white supremacy through intimidation and violence aimed at the newly enfranchised black freedmen. A similar organization, the Knights of the White Camelia, began in Louisiana in 1867." What? "WHITE SUPREMACY?" 1867: "Dressed in robes and sheets designed to frighten superstitious blacks and to prevent identification by the occupying federal troops, Klansmen whipped and killed freedmen and their white supporters in nighttime raids." ENTERTAINMENT? Congress to passed the Force Act in 1870 and the Ku Klux Klan Act in 1871, basically calling them a domestic terrorist groups that we see today (ANTIFA) and it "prohibited groups of people from banding together or to go in disguise upon the public highways, or upon the premises of another with the intention of violating citizens’ constitutional rights." Now the AP, is trying to tell us that the "Klan died out since White Southerners had retaken control of state governments 'through their campaigns of violence and intimidation.'" So, basically Nancy Pelosi was now in leading and they bullied their way into Government control of the states! These were NOT NICE PEOPLE and still are not.
Sorry AP, you can keep your radical rules...the TRUTH will be told. Keeping with my old school research and going to sites that haven't been completely polluted with the LEFT WING EXTREMIST RADICAL RULES, this is what the New World Encyclopedia had to say about the KKK: Ku Klux Klan (KKK) is the name of several past and present organizations in the United States that have advocated at different times white supremacy, anti-Semitism, racism, anti-Catholicism, homophobia, and nativism. These organizations have often used terrorism, violence and acts of intimidation to oppress Black Americans and other groups." Racism, White Supremacy both associated with the KKK. hmmmm... Ok, so when did the narrative change? At what point in our RECENT history did the Democrats manage to flip this and change the truth to a lie? When did they pull a page from Hitler's ideology and Alinsky's rule book and start repeating a lie so often the people believed it to be the truth. When did the racists and the White Supremacists become the RIGHT WING EXTREMIST? And how did they get the entire country to buy it? I mean really, HOW?
Does the name Robert Byrd ring any Racist Bells? It should! Byrd was a Democrat politician who served as a United States Senator from West Virginia for over 51 years, from 1959 until his death in 2010. "He unseated Ted Kennedy in 1971 to become majority whip, or the second highest-ranking Democrat, until 1977." He was well loved and respected by his Democrat colleagues. Hillary Clinton stated that Byrd was a “a true American original, my friend and mentor.” He sounds like a True American Patriot, right? But Byrd was a KLANSMAN! A very well positioned and HIGH ORDER member of the KKK. As this racist group became less popular during the civil rights movement because, well, Black people began to stand up to these evil, racist bigots, their tactics started to change...not their racism mind you, but their tactics! And unfortunately so many members of the Black community didn't even see what was actually happening. Outright racism, the KKK was REPLACED with COMPASSIONATE RACISM with the signing of the Civil Rights Act (1964) by another well know Democrat Racist and alleged Klan member, Democrat President Lyndon Johnson. The real agenda behind the "War on Poverty" was to keep poor, black families, in poverty. Most Republicans and conservatives will claim that this ACT was a catastrophic failure and drove millions of Blacks deeper into poverty and had a disastrous effect on the Black family unit, forcing Blacks and poor Whites to be dependant on the Government. But it WASN'T a failure, it accomplished EXACTLY what the Democrats wanted...keep Blacks enslaved, one way or another. The KKK moniker had to be changed and a RADICAL RULE along with Hitler's "BIG LIE" needed to be put into action...And this is when it all happened. This is how the LEFT-WING EXTREMIST changed the narrative and sowed the seeds of their new narrative, the "Right Wing Extremist." The wheels of the well oiled propaganda machine began to SPIN.
RULE 10: “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.” Violence from the other side can win the public to your side because the public sympathizes with the underdog. (Unions used this tactic. Peaceful [albeit loud] demonstrations during the heyday of unions in the early to mid-20th Century incurred management’s wrath, often in the form of violence that eventually brought public sympathy to their side.)"~Saul Alinsky’s 12 Rules for Radicals
“If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.” ~Adolf Hitler
Which brings me back to my little town...the beginning of my thought and the reason I am writing this. If you remember the article I wrote: Coeur d'Alene Stands Up, Antifa Stands Down, I decided to write a follow-up article from the perspective of our Local Businesses. The reason, I wanted to write that was because I had read a few local news articles that claimed there were some local business that were not happy with the armed civilians that came out in DROVES to protect our , Coeur d'Alene, Id Main Street Businesses. In the wake of our neighbor's to the West; Spokane's violent protest on the evening of May 30th, that was instigated by people that even the local news called, outsiders, our concerned citizens took action to be prepared. Keep in mind that the distance from Spokane to our downtown district area is 33 miles. What we witnessed in Spokane on a Sunday was something that we never thought we would see here...come on, that type of violent behaviour happens in heavily diverse and populated places like Seattle, Portland, LA, but not Spokane, which is just a conversation away from our little town. The understanding from EYE WITNESSES that were in Spokane that evening was that this violent (ANTIFA) group was intent on wreaking havoc on our peaceful, little community the next day (Monday). And this PROVED to be 100% correct as many unfamiliar faces converged across the street from our Local Winco Store, ready to rumble, not to peacefully protest in an unfamiliar town.
So where does Richard Butler, come into this story, and why? In my outreach to local business owners, one woman, who wished to remain anonymous, as she claimed to NOT do so could put her life, her family and her business in jeopardy...She compared the Coeur d'Alene citizens that were armed and ready to protect their community from the likes of ANTIFA rioters, as "Right Wing Extremists." She included a reference from SNOPES that claimed nothing evil was coming the way of Coeur d'Alene, but it was all a hoax perpetrated by the White Supremacist group, EVROPA...and a lot of Progressive Liberal bla bla bla from SNOPES. This person recalled the events of Monday, June 1st,; "I would express my opinion about this latest white supremacy terrorist activity but as it turns out we just witnessed the demonstration of how alive and well it is in our region." She went on to mentioned the name, Aryan Nation recounting the events of that time in our local history when Richard Butler, who was NOT a Conservative Republican by the way, spread his, White Supremacist, KKK type hate in our community. She used the term, "WHITE SUPREMACIST" and "RIGHT WING EXTRMEST" (sic) several times in her response to me. If nothing else proved it, comment made it very clear that I was dealing with a liberal, "The idea of "protecting the businesses" only provided necessary cover for appointing themselves law enforcement.they stand behind the 2nd amendment but fail to read the whole thing which states that the right to bear arms is granted to 'a well trained and regulated militia'. The participants I witnessed were anything but that!" OK! HOLD UP JUST A MINUTE! Who reading this catches her egregious mistake here? And this is the problem with so many people and not just Liberals. They don't know their history, do not understand the Constitution or even why it written. "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE!
"... it will be possible to have an excellent body of well-trained militia, ready to take the field whenever the defence of the State shall require it. This will not only lessen the call for military establishments, but if circumstances should at any time oblige the Government to form an army of any magnitude, that army can never be formidable to the liberties of the People, while there is a large body of citizens, little, if at all, inferior to them in discipline and the use of arms, who stand ready to defend their own rights, and those of their fellow-citizens. This appears to me the only substitute that can be devised for a standing army, and the best possible security against it, if it should exist."
My response: "I have lived in this town for many decades and knew 90% of the folks that were out for the entire week hoping to avoid any of the conflict, violence and damage that our neighbors a short distance to the West encountered. After speaking with the police and the media, it was clear that this was not a fabricated event, and the people causing the problems were not locals. The damage caused to their city is plain to see. But perhaps you are right and it was just all a ploy to divide us...but I am glad it didn't happen here. The one thing I saw, was several hundred people, united, coming out, even in the rain, to stand guard over our little town. When speaking to them, their sentiment was unanimous..."We don't want to see what happened in Spokane, happen here." I think that is a good thing. And by the way, the Black man in the pic, was a local, BLM protestor, also out protecting our city. How can you miss the good in that? I do agree, there are those who are intent on promoting hate and division, we've seen them all week, looting, destroying, killing, confiscating Seattle city blocks...but I think they would be disgusted to be called or even associated with anything that resembles those on the Right."
I don't believe this person is hateful or fulfilling any sort of Liberal agenda, I just believe that she, like so many others are misguided and have bought into the agenda of the Left Wing Extremists.
And THIS is how it is done! This is how Mitt Romney a RINO, John McCain another RINO and Marco Rubio (who knows what he is) could come out and give praise to ANTIFA during the violent protests in Charlottesville, Va in 2017. "Americans standing up to defy hate and bigotry.” ~Mccain. “One side is racist, bigoted, The other opposes racism and bigotry. Morally different universes.”~Romney. TELL A LIE FOR LONG ENOUGH AND PEOPLE WILL BELIEVE IT! Just as the narrative was flipped by the Democrats to cover up their racist, violent history as LEFT-WING EXTREMIST, Democrat sympathizers as the politicians mentioned above started to spin a narrative, and with the help of the Media Monsters it took hold. The extremely, violent fascist group, who pretends to be against fascism, ANTIFA are just a repackaging of the almost forgotten political, The Populist Party: "In the United States, the term "populist" originally referred to the Populist Party and related left-wing movements of the late nineteenth century that wanted to curtail the power of the corporate and financial establishment." The Populist Party was a radical Liberal one and racist through and through and under the guise of "helping farmers" their real agenda was directly online with Antifa, but with a twist. "During the late 1880s and early 1890s, a million African Americans joined the Colored Farmers Alliance. At one of their conventions, black farmers argued that 'land belong to the sovereign people,' and should not be treated as private property. As the Populist movement divided the South's white population, a number of black leaders saw a chance to forge an alliance with poorer whites. The threat of this bi-racial alliance led many upper-class conservative Democrats to play the "race card." They appealed to white farmers to vote Democratic in order to maintain a system of white supremacy. The appeal to racism proved highly effective in undermining Populism's appeal. Upper-class conservative Democrats took the lead in calling for legalized segregation and disfranchisement (sic) of African Americans." ~Digital History
And that history is being rewritten as well..and soon that political party will be known as the party of "Right-Wing Extremists." You just wait and see! And who knows, in 50 years, ANTIFA may be rewritten as Right-Wing Extremists. That would not surprise me on bit!
I am done, for now...although there is just so much more...the point is, Racism is not progressively occupied in the minds of Conservative, Republicans, but IS a constant seed growing in the Democrat Party that is ever changing in its direction and its deep seated roots spread like weeds disguised as beautiful flowers. The Divisions in our country have always had their roots in the soil of Liberalism and with enough fertilizer their ideologies spread like noxious weeds, you know the type...the weeds that grow in your cultivated garden that have pretty flowers but their creeping vines eventually choke out the the real beauty and when the season is over we are left with the reality; sticking pickers that cling tightly to anything that touches them and continues to spread in a different area.
