Lying Speech Is Their Native Tongue
“Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that his justice cannot sleep forever” –Thomas Jefferson
Thomas Jefferson’s original rough draft of the Declaration of Independence:
“We hold these truths to be sacred & undeniable; that all men are created equal & independent, that from that equal creation they derive rights inherent & inalienable, among which are the preservation of life, & liberty, & the pursuit of happiness; that to secure these ends, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; that whenever any form of government shall become destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, & to institute new government…”
The Final Text of the Declaration of Independence July 4 1776
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government…
“Equal & independent” versus “equal”
With five simple words in the Declaration of Independence—“all men are created equal”—Thomas Jefferson undid Aristotle’s ancient formula, which had governed human affairs until 1776: “From the hour of their birth, some men are marked out for subjection, others for rule.” — Henry Wiencek
That may have been the rhetoric, but it clearly wasn’t Jefferson’s intention. Writing in “White Over Black” Winthrop Jordan says of Jefferson: “He could not rid himself of the suspicion that the Negro was naturally inferior. If this we’re in fact the case, then it was axiomatic that the Creator had so created the Negro and no amount of education or freedom or any other tinkering could undo the facts of Nature. Thus Jefferson suspected that the Creator might have…created men unequal… If the Negro was not originally equal he could never ‘become’ so, not if equality really stemmed from ‘that equal creation’ from which Jefferson had derived it in the Declaration.”
Jefferson’s original draft of the Declaration read: “We hold these Truths to be self-evident; that all Men are created equal and independent; that from that equal Creation they derive Rights inherent and unalienable…” Jefferson’s statement was changed to read: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights…” Jefferson believed that the change from “created equal and independent” to “all men are created equal,” “had weakened the force of the document.” Some scholars have reasoned that the intent of Jefferson’s “equal and independent” statement was the same as the US Supreme Court in the 1896 Plessy decision, “separate but equal,” which in practice became separate and unequal. In other words the substitution stripped the Declaration of a rationalization for slavery.
Certainly Thomas Jefferson, driven by the philosophy of white supremacy and the economic benefits of slavery, did not believe that all human beings were created equal. People created unequally by God were not entitled to human rights.
Thomas Jefferson was the preeminent institutionalized white supremacist of the late 18th/early 19th century, as proven by his writings in Notes on the State of Virginia.
Orangutan’s, which are not indigenous to Afrika, prefer “the black women over those of his own species”
The first difference which strikes us is that of colour. Whether the black of the negro resides in the reticular membrane between the skin and scarf-skin, or in the scarf-skin itself; whether it proceeds from the colour of the blood, the colour of the bile, or from that of some other secretion, the difference is fixed in nature, and is as real as if its seat and cause were better known to us. And is this difference of no importance? Is it not the foundation of a greater or less share of beauty in the two races? Are not the fine mixtures of red and white, the expressions of every passion by greater or less suffusions of colour in the one, preferable to that eternal monotony, which reigns in the countenances, that immovable veil of black which covers all the emotions of the other race? Add to these, flowing hair, a more elegant symmetry of form, their own judgment in favour of the whites, declared by their preference of them, as uniformly as is the preference of the Oran-utan [orangutan] for the black women over those of his own species. The circumstance of superior beauty, is thought worthy attention in the propagation of our horses, dogs, and other domestic animals; why not in that of man?
They are more ardent after their female: but love seems with them to be more an eager desire, than a tender delicate mixture of sentiment and sensation. Their griefs are transient. Those numberless afflictions, which render it doubtful whether heaven has given life to us in mercy or in wrath, are less felt, and sooner forgotten with them. In general, their existence appears to participate more of sensation than reflection. To this must be ascribed their disposition to sleep when abstracted from their diversions, and unemployed in labor. An animal whose body is at rest, and who does not reflect, must be disposed to sleep of course. Comparing them by their faculties of memory, reason, and imagination, it appears to me, that in memory they are equal to the whites; in reason much inferior, as I think one could scarcely be found capable of tracing and comprehending the investigations of Euclid; and that in imagination they are dull, tasteless, and anomalous.
As regards Euclid: Jefferson’s ignorance or denial on this subject is profound. Aristotle is on record saying: “Thus the mathematical sciences first originated in Egypt.” Egypt is “the cradle of mathematics-that is, the country of origin for Greek mathematics. The mathematical arts had never before been formed, constituted or elaborated anywhere else originating in Egypt only.” See Theophile Obenga “African Philosophy, The Pharaonic Period: 2780-330 BC”
It is not their condition then, but nature, which has produced the distinction. — Whether further observation will or will not verify the conjecture, that nature has been less bountiful to them in the endowments of the head, I believe that in those of the heart she will be found to have done them justice.
Emancipation for the Afrikan would mean genetic annihilation for white people
I advance it therefore as a suspicion only, that the blacks, whether originally a distinct race, or made distinct by time and circumstances, are inferior to the whites in the endowments both of body and mind. It is not against experience to suppose, that different species of the same genus, or varieties of the same species, may possess different qualifications. Will not a lover of natural history then, one who views the gradations in all the races of animals with the eye of philosophy, excuse an effort to keep those in the department of man as distinct as nature has formed them? This unfortunate difference of colour, and perhaps of faculty, is a powerful obstacle to the emancipation of these people. Many of their advocates, while they wish to vindicate the liberty of human nature, are anxious also to preserve its dignity and beauty. Some of these, embarrassed by the question `What further is to be done with them?’ join themselves in opposition with those who are actuated by sordid avarice only. Among the Romans emancipation required but one effort. The slave, when made free, might mix with, without staining the blood of his master. But with us a second is necessary, unknown to history. When freed, he is to be removed beyond the reach of mixture. . . .
Jefferson was more concerned about the effects of slavery on white people than its effects on enslaved Afrikans. In addition to genetic annihilation, Jefferson’s greatest fear, particularly after the Revolution in Ayiti, was that Afrikans would become vessels of Divine Reciprocity.
It will probably be asked, Why not retain and incorporate the blacks into the state, and thus save the expense of supplying, by importation of white settlers, the vacancies they will leave? Deep rooted prejudices entertained by the whites; ten thousand recollections, by the blacks, of the injuries they have sustained; new provocations; the real distinctions which nature has made; and many other circumstances, will divide us into parties, and produce convulsions which will probably never end but in the extermination of the one or the other race. — To these objections, which are political, may be added others, which are physical and moral.
Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that his justice cannot sleep forever; that considering numbers, nature, and natural means only, a revolution of the wheel of fortune, an exchange of the situation, is among possible events; that it may become probable by supernatural interference! The Almighty has no attribute which can take side with us in such a contest.
In his Rough Draft, Jefferson said of King George:
“He has incited treasonable insurrections in our fellow-subjects, with the allurements of forfeiture & confiscation of our property”
That statement was changed in the final text and combined with a passage about Indigenous People.
“He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian savages, whose known rule of warfare, is undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.”
A New York Times article posted at Subrealism deals with Afrikan rebellion as a driving force for American independence from Britain.
The enormous profits generated by the enslavement of Afrikan people
From the Wiencek article
What Jefferson set out clearly for the first time was that he was making a 4 percent profit every year on the birth of black children. The enslaved were yielding him a bonanza, a perpetual human dividend at compound interest… In another communication from the early 1790s, Jefferson takes the 4 percent formula further and quite bluntly advances the notion that slavery presented an investment strategy for the future. He writes that an acquaintance who had suffered financial reverses “should have been invested in negroes.”
In his lifetime Jefferson owned more than 600 slaves. At any one time about 100 slaves lived on the mountain; the highest slave population, in 1817, was 140.
Just months after the factory began operation, he wrote that “a nailery which I have established with my own negro boys now provides completely for the maintenance of my family.” Two months of labor by the nail boys paid the entire annual grocery bill for the white family.
A startling statistic emerged in the 1970s, when economists taking a hardheaded look at slavery found that on the eve of the Civil War, enslaved black people, in the aggregate, formed the second most valuable capital asset in the United States. David Brion Davis sums up their findings: “In 1860, the value of Southern slaves was about three times the amount invested in manufacturing or railroads nationwide.” The only asset more valuable than the black people was the land itself. The formula Jefferson had stumbled upon became the engine not only of Monticello but of the entire slaveholding South and the Northern industries, shippers, banks, insurers and investors who weighed risk against returns and bet on slavery. The words Jefferson used—“their increase”—became magic words.
We can only imagine how many enslaved Afrikans were forced into “dehumanizing breeding” once Jefferson’s calculations went “viral.” Virginia became America’s “Slave Coast.”
In my post about Georgetown I wrote the following:
The Slave Trade Clause (Article 1 Section 9) of the 1787 US Constitution allowed the international trade in Afrikan human beings to continue for at least another 21 years: “The Migration or Importation of such Persons as any of the States now existing shall think proper to admit shall not be prohibited by the Congress prior to the Year one thousand eight hundred and eight, but a Tax or duty may be imposed on such Importation, not exceeding ten dollars for each Person.”
In 1807, the US Congress passed a law which declared that after January 1, 1808 it would “not be lawful to import or bring into the United States or the territories thereof from any foreign kingdom, place, or country, any negro, mulatto, or person of colour, with intent to hold, sell, or dispose of such [person] … as a slave, to be held to service or labour.”
Despite banning the international slave trade to the United States, the enslaved Afrikan US population increased from 1,538,125 in 1820 to 3,953,760 in 1860. In Mississippi, the enslaved population increased from 32,814 (1820) to 462,198 (1860). In Louisiana, the increase over that period was from 69,064 to 331,726. Those increases were fueled by the invention of the cotton gin (1793), the international demand for cotton, and the development of the domestic slave trade, selling Afrikans from the tobacco plantations of the Upper South to the cotton, rice, and the deadly sugar plantations of the Deep South. The 272 enslaved Afrikans sold by Georgetown to Louisiana plantation owners were part of the domestic slave trade.
Obviously, I omitted the most critical factor for the increase in the Afrikan population–breeding which provided human beings for the domestic slave trade. Virginia became America’s slave coast and Thomas Jefferson was the progenitor of that barbarism.
Lying speech is their native tongue
Based on their capacity to construct a nation on a foundation of crimes against humanity (genocide, slavery, theft), the American president is able to declare:
“Two hundred and thirty-eight years ago, our founders came together and declared a new nation and a revolutionary idea: the belief that we are all created equal; that we’re free to govern ourselves; that each of us is entitled to life and liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. And in the generations that have followed, through war and peace, through depression and prosperity – these truths have guided us as we have built the greatest democratic, economic, and military force the world has ever known.” – President Barack Obama (July 4, 2014)
Later for the Fourth of You Lie. What Afrikan people need is:
One Eye of Heru to Bro. Ayotunde Sundiata for forwarding this declaration from Bro. Samori Camara. Liberate, empower and end our 500 + years of dependence.
