History Twist



This weekend I found myself battling with yet another case of insomnia (Welcome back old friend), after tossing and turning I finally decided to give in and turn on my television and watch the news. I figured if I heard a few stories about the deficit I would fall back to sleep immediately...No Such Luck!

Why because of this story below:

A major gun advocate is promoting his pro-firearms stance by saying that had African Americans been given the right to bear arms, "slavery might not have been a chapter in our history."
Larry Ward, chairman of Gun Appreciation Day, appeared on CNN Friday to defend the nationwide gun rally, which is scheduled for Jan. 19 -- just two days before Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Talking Points Memo notes.Ward insists that Gun Appreciation Day, which calls on gun activists across the nation to rally in support of the right to bear arms and against President Barack Obama's “post-Sandy Hook assault on gun rights," actually "honors the legacy of Dr. King."
I was stunned! Is this group so desperate for followers that they think they can just twist history? Clearly they are. Even in the most elementary of history lessons we are taught that slaves were brought to America against their will..hence the term SLAVERY. They were treated like cattle, beaten into submission and bought and sold away from their families. Does this sound like an environment where the OWNERS would let their property have guns?

NO! This is just another way for people to twist Black History for their own purposes, and there just seems to be too much of that going on lately. First that wacko Bachman signing the marriage vow, which claimed African Americans were better off during slavery, and every other story on Fox news from Ann Coulter insisting that we all become republicans because they freed us to Black Panthers intimidating voters. And NOW this...

I could add Django to this list to fuel all of your fire but I'm not here to debate movies and writers that live in their little bubbles. But real news, Yes I will point that out because too many people will think there is some accuracy to this nonsense and spread it to the masses.
