"Get started with. I think this person or this story broke during the summer. it's kinda hard to tell now with the pandemic. what time is like but one other prominent ones that i remember seeing that wino- was flooding. Our timeline was the story of jessica. Craig aka or formerly known as jess la. Barletta cringe already awesome early known formerly known best. I'm about that. Let's get started. Let's talk about her. Yes so this woman has allegedly and apparently apparently been taking on different like black and afro sport identities throughout her life. She's an a professor or was a professor and academic where george washington university and university teaching. You know black studies are afrikaner studies and publishing books but at some point she were shifting from being in a north african to being african american and then being afro latin next sand after boaty gua was i think the final landing place for her her official forum her final warm so jessica. Krog just aka justifiable maleta hers combination of black fishing and being a fake tina at the same time and She got called out basically rightfully so rightfully so by a group of professors who are after latina's who had issues with her they were witness to or on the receiving end of like aggression from her and like prejudice and bad behavior while she was masquerading as after let nine different contexts. Apparently being super like belligerent towards black women in my on cool and really I think overcompensating and so trying to be an ex sorted extreme caricature of like this south bronx like her. Allegedly her mother was like a drug addicts prostitutes like this narrative that should created about herself so black women in the academy you know began talking about these different experiences and came forward and said This is not right. Yeah she was definitely performing like whoa kness being extreme radical like it was very performative. She was a published academic author and she also received a ton of accolades rice. She received she was a finalist. For the twenty twenty frederick douglass prize book prize presented by yale's gilder lehrman center the study of slavery resistance and abolition. She also was nominated or a finalist for the twenty thousand nine. Harriet tubman book prize and just received a ton of accolades has really been propelled or was propelled forward and questionably hired because of not solely for her identity. But because of the work she was doing and also the way. She positioned herself as offer latino or body gua and it's very cringe to think about all of the opportunities she stole from actual author. Latinas boras caribbean women. That are doing if not the same work or better work you know. And so it's that was probably one of the first ones that we saw. And then i think it kind of just opened up the floodgates for a lot of others than i don't know about you ma. But in my chicano studies department at uc santa barbara. There were a couple of fake denies that i will not name. They were not. They weren't anyone that i took like. I didn't take any classes with them but they were around. People talked about them.

And they would tell me about these. Things happen. And in their cohort or in their in their seminars. And so you know. I think if if you've been in academia right. I haven't been to grad school.

The Nineteenth Amendment Turns 100

"On this centennial of the nineteenth amendment. Celebrate the persistence of the suffragettes and also recognize that the generations long fight was marred by racism, classism and anti-semitism. In this episode of Can we talk will explore the role of African American and Jewish women in fighting for women's right to vote and the lessons we can learn from the history. Judith Rosenbaum talked with three historians and she's here now to share those interviews with us. Hi, Judith Honey. So who are we going to hear from? I? I, will hear from Ellen de Boys. She's professor emeritus at Ucla, and she's been researching and writing about the suffrage movement since the early nineteen seventies her newest book is suffrage women's long battle for the vote. And true to the title of her book, She talks a lot about how drawn out this fight was and the incredible tenacity of the women who fought for the right to vote I take a long time that it took the stubbornness and consistency of the leaders who refused to give up to use the quote that was used against Elizabeth Warren. Nevertheless they persisted. Several generations lived and died without winning the vote and still did not give up. So I would say democracy is frequently if not always imperilled must be regularly defended or it will be lost. Alas I would say our constitutional order which we think of as being like the sun in the morning in the moon at night may not be eternal and we must act for. And finally, that in our activism, you really have to take the long view and not be discouraged because we're GONNA lose a lot like, Allen I too have found both wisdom and warnings in the suffrage movement. After the two thousand sixteen election I turned to history since as a historian that's what I tend to do and I was really drawn to the stories of the suffragettes. They gave me some perspective and reminded me to take the long view. I was worried about the next four years while these people who worked tirelessly for decades and many of them died before seeing the fruits of their labor. I asked Ellen how they sustain the Movement for so long she reminded me that while women were fighting for the right to vote, they made plenty of other gains along the way. So we have education, we have professions women are. Their lawyers their writers artists. So much so that by the time selfridge calms, it's almost like. To put it in a good way. It's like the icing on the cake to put it in a bad way. It's so overdue of women are a quarter of the labor force hold visions of the American economy couldn't exist that working women. So let's leftist politics and the question is why keep women out of politics? The other thing I would say is it's important to remember that along the way there are suffrage achievements of the most important of which are that many of the states west of the Mississippi are granting women are women are winning their activism. Right to vote, they have full voting rights. They are voting for president, a women of Colorado vote for president in every election starting in eighteen nineties. I the time that this effort to change. Suffrage state-by-state slightly crosses the Mississippi and arrives at victory in most powerful state in the union. York in nineteen seventeen over four million women, vote. So they already have the vote. These are important victories but Ellen, and I also talked about the failures of the suffrage movement especially, the racism that emerged in the fight over the Fifteenth Amendment the Fifteenth Amendment granted African American men the right to vote in eighteen seventy right prior to that suffer and abolitionist worked closely together and rallied around the call for universal suffrage that is voting rights for all. But in the lead up to the Fifteenth Amendment when it became clear that the Republican Party would only support suffrage for black men the movement split. Some were willing to accept the compromise voting rights for African. American men but not for women and some were not and this created a really painful rift. That's when the famous. Between abolitionist leader Frederick Douglass, and suffrage leaders, Susan B., Anthony and Elizabeth cady stanton was shattered. Yes. Stanton and Anthony News that the opportunity an amendment wouldn't come around again for a long time. They were enraged that after decades of activism both against slavery and four women's rights, women were being told to wait and they and other white Selfridge's felt it was unfair that quote unquote on educated black men would get the vote before educated white women. Here's what Ellen says about Stanton's public response. Stanton's particularly. Speaks over a period of a couple months really drawing on a lot of racist rhetoric and it's very painful. She was in her sort of core elitist. And that had a racist element to it, but it also had anti immigrant element to it too. She thought as she used to say women like herself shouldn't have to wait to get the vote until the daughter of. Blacks in butchers she said got vote.

In fact, Tennessee was indicted for manslaughter after one of her patients died. By some good fortune that I don't know the sisters found themselves with a wealthy patron in the form of railroad magnate Cornelius Vanderbilt. He and Tennessee were rumored to be lovers.

"Man Okay. So we've got all this massive gun control legislation which I'm assuming. That this is going to veto once it hits his desk, roll it into something else and he doesn't see it. I mean. Does anybody else you positive outcome here other than I'll just say it an open civil war. Mean I feel like I feel like patience like like those are the Sierra on the on the on the conference. Are being, backed into a corner. Yeah we're basically damned if we do. We're damned if we don't any anybody want to comment on that. No Matt Aspect. Mark Yeah. Well, the thing is like you hope it doesn't cover some this ridiculous. Of course. By, by thing is I would I guess probably is right now I don't know. Civil. War who against who? In other words, how would how would you distinguish I'll be okay Tepa. Got It the OH black lives matter. Got It. But. How do you distinguish? You gotta be. That's a great question. That's the real. That's a real problem is that we're facing a A faceless boogeyman to keep us all in our homes and isolated from one another. We've got blatant constitutional no violations from New York California including the first second third amendments. Fourth amendment. I mean and they're just they're not apologetic about it. They're just in your face to. Has. Closed Down Churches and locked Rock Jewish people out of their own parts. What's his name from says. Yeah. Is violating blatantly violating the first. Amendment people they can't sing in. Church. Are you kidding me. I mean, I'm not a religious separation of church and state. Well and second of all I mean, how does anybody look at that and not go holy shit let the lawsuits commence. Honestly So, now here's the thing I. WanNa Make It. I WanNa make it very clear for the audience and even those in the group I am not advocating for an open civil war where we start shooting. Okay. I would also like to say here only for myself but I believe that that I do not believe in the Black Lives Organization the Black Lives Matter Organization. I believe in the message black lives matter just as much as every other life and we should all be equal before the law we should be overseas equal treatment especially before the law. But. I'm not going to back a group that is Marxist and comes out and basically says it if you don't give us what we want, we're GONNA burn the system that the ground. I mean all here. Again, I mean if you have said organization that is in fact, baking a threat whether they considered idol. They considered valid. It is still a threat to. The life. Well, exactly how how do we not take that? How do we not take that based on the the instances of the last month? Says we says, we all watched the the horrific murder of a of a citizen by by discussing human being police officer. How do we? How do we not take that as anything other than a threat of actual violence based on recent history? Therein. Lies The question that I would poses that to go along with remarks you know who who exactly is going to do is A. Government. It's a radical leaders. Of States counties, cities, whatever. Or is it going to be people for people? We have. What did you just leave knowing? When you just gotTa love the irony that the Minnesota governor had the balls to ask the white. House for for bailout money after they let their city burn. I, mean, I understand there are citizens that were affected by that. But you know my argument would be well I'll tell you what once you spend the money that you say from you know. From dissolving your police. Believe. Yeah what you spend that money go ahead. Save yourself though you know the. Four hundred million dollars spent annually on your police force. Etc.. And They're not gonNA, pass it out. There's a blank check to the people because well, you know we don't get our tax money that way. Exactly. HAVE YOUR IS A. Stalemate along the lines of. City Minneapolis Saint Paul's which Is Looking for a five hundred dollar bill out the government's GONNA help. They're going to have to get that money somewhere. Well exactly and the question. Phoenix afraid now, but to answer your question or respond to your statement. I believe you said they're not gonNA raise taxes through the roof to do it. Of course, they will. Of course they will in turn. Bring. I. That's. That's a real trick. Isn't is when the IRS gets involved or whatever State Department revenue they have comes and starts locking people up the people sheepishly combine. and. The guy will probably get reelected. Let's be honest. Well you will probably see. You'll probably see something for the cities that were affected by riots and everything put into like a another stimulus bill passed by the house. Like they have added that money there you go to a legal and yeah. And everything else that I wouldn't put it past the House to sit there and add a piece in there that every city that was affected by these riots or has hardships now. Get X. amount of. Millions of dollars as part of this. Bill to. Help, stimulate the economy and the people that actually are affected by all this. That, it should be helping they'll put their. Claws into it and put. Extra things that won't matter, and then it'll sit there and argue back and forth between the House, and the Senate for God knows how long Because they won't budge on wasn't it? Well one thing you have to love about the strategy employed by the Democrats they're gonNA. They're gonNA try to stick it in something that make the president look bad if he vetoes it. Oh. Yeah. It'll be. It'll be some sort of. Bill and he'll have to it, and then they'll scream how he doesn't care about children. Exactly among the media will be all over it. Media will be all over at bashing him. Oh. Yeah. Yeah. The president doesn't care about the future. There for the last four years anyway. Well Yeah they've they've. It's funny. I. Yeah I was GONNA say I. Johnson and Nixon for sure. But you know twenty I hear people talking about Oh. Trump won't accept the results of the twenty twenty election loses you guys still haven't accepted the fact that you're get forty. Or the fact that impeachment failed yeah. Yeah the. Everything else. Rono. Everything else that you've thrown at them hasn't stuck. Exactly this is. This is reality you know this is not theory. All this stuff is happened. You know. I saw something today and I don't remember where it was talking about the reason that you know that. They want to sit there and blame trump for not being ready for this pandemic and everything was because the other half of the fence was sitting there. So busy trying to get him out for the last four years that he couldn't take time to focus. On being prepared for anything like that. The funny part is, is I I'm trying. I'm trying to I'm I don't know about you guys, but I'm tired of hearing how Trump getting the blame for a hundred and thirty thousand body bags. Here this is this is the thing we need to do things. We need to change the story number one it should be only a hundred, thirty, thousand, five bags why? If if anybody recalls I do specifically PURDIS MR TRUMP DONALD TRUMP put a travel ban in effect once we had ten positive cases in this country, the left assailed him for weeks for doing it. Okay. Nancy. Pelosi went to Chinatown encourage people not to wear masks Blah Blah. Xenophobic Racist Blah Blah Blah, pick your s that's yacht called, and now all of a sudden they WANNA blame him for one hundred, thirty, thousand body bags may explain something if he hadn't done what he did when he did, there'd be a million three bodybags. Okay end of discussion this has nothing to do with mass. This is all a political fucking game and and I'm tired of hearing about it. Except from you guys I love your new guys. DOTS. I. Think. Let's just put that on record right now. Yeah you're paid to talk matter of fact, we don't pay you at all. Yes. I think we have a contract we'll get. something. About our bucks and it'll happen advil or something like that. I. Think it was under someone nine. I was a corner of starbucks eight was a quarter of an advil and half starbucks get it straight monthly and you're no. Damage. Send Me. Oreo. Wait a minute. I want kids count. You want to renegotiate. All of your agent moved to Seattle. Yeah exactly somebody please his comments to that brick wall over there. Oh Yeah. Yeah. All right I feel like I've rented enough. Is there anything you gentlemen WANNA cover that I missed? How `bout? Redskins finally caving. By quest over we're going we're going for football. Then we're GONNA touch the Third Rail Ladies and gentlemen he just licked and grabbed it go right ahead phoenix. I did read an article that. There are some and I'm not saying a whole bowl loan. I'm not saying that YOU KNOW ENTIRE PATIENT O. Or and it's hard tribal right that there are in fact, some of the indigenous votes, native Americans. That want keep it because it actually gives them a sense of ownership relevant. We've along on this we have this. We can follow this because that is you know a depiction of our people. What's the Redskins fans great. I have no problem with that if there. was somebody like football but hey, you know I, see it representation in my people here. Thank you. There are well, we don't get me wrong that no, all fuck you and take it other. Cash kind of it's actually kind of funny that you mentioned that being that I'm also for those of us this for those of you just tuning in and getting no us as we get to know you I, am a football nut job I have been since my early days Yes. I was GONNA. Say I think there's actually incriminating proof out there wasn't much of a about football I gotta tell you. My love for the game has often outweighed all of this You know all the polit political bullshit that's going on in the game for quite some time. Get into Kapernick, that's a whole other rent for me that lasts about forty five minutes and maybe we'll do an episode just on that Now, there was always my understanding in watching anything about the Washington redskins and and the history of them that the that the team was supposedly named for one of their assistant coaches who was native American and it was if anybody. I played football I I. I. I know that Phoenix not sure if you did mark You know everybody everybody on the football field to talk shit and especially to your friends okay and Just because you have some sort of negative pejorative is a nickname, doesn't mean that people hate you Okay. So The, the the legend was and I've actually since found out found out, different resin was at the team was named for in honor of one of their beloved assistant coaches. Evidently that's not the case. Racist over racist overtones aside I? Mean we can dissect anything want. Come up with all kinds of. The point being is, why don't we just name? The region Caucasians and everybody'll be happy. Okay I mean. Seriously also living in living in Florida I gotTa tell you the university or she state has a deal to to use the seminole name from the from the seminal nation. They paid them royalties every year, which is why you don't hear this here the Indigenous People screaming about Florida state. Okay. So You know I I don't I don't want to say they haven't been relevant for twenty years. Hey easy. I. Agree I agree too I mean my head. One is, Emma water but. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute mark. Are You All I I. Take over the gators day. Well me too because. No. Fan. You know what you know University of Miami and the Florida. GATOR gator. Yeah. So It's just block. Gives you wondering we all love each other teams until we play each other so that that being said. Does anybody have any idea about the outrage regarding redskins? Honestly. I mean I might just you know that stupid that I don't see the problem with the name it's the name of sports team. Okay. I mean we'RE GONNA change the Cleveland Indians. Are we gonNA change you know aerobics Today. But that's again that's a whole other. That's a whole other thing. But how many? Are they are all the sports teams just to be to be called the daisies and you know we're good to go. Or how about the banana flavor wouldn't? Well, this is like football gets get. Exactly. Yeah.

World Premier Episode - burst 01

"Hello America. And welcome to the midnight. Patriots involves Spartan and I am flanked by Phoenix, Drip Dick, and mark. We are the midnight patriots and you may be asking yourselves why in the hell are we doing this? Well, got to be honest with you. Everybody has insomnia sucks almost as bad as tyranny that and we have day jobs. So we're GONNA talk in the series about the Constitution the bill of rights politics national current events. WE'RE GONNA call out here anyway guardless of the perceive political flavor using these standards of information logic and a passion for liberty. So that being said, I wanted to read something here real quick on our maiden voyage as sort of a sort of a way to set the standard. This this passage I'm about to read was actually written by. Thomas Paine one of our founders and framers, and regardless of how you see this man and the values that he possessed in that day that this was written this was written about seven months after the excuse me five months after the declaration of independence. So this is a this is a passage from December twenty, third, seventeen, seventy, six many of you have heard the the the line of this but I'm to go a little bit deeper into it, and hopefully this'll give the show some sort of context and and we hope we can earn your support as as time goes on. So this is from December twenty, third seventeen, seventy, six when the When the Revolutionary War was still going on and it says says as follows. These are the Times that try men's souls. Summer soldier in the Sun signed gatriways will in this crisis shrink from the service of their country. But he that stands by it now deserves the love and the thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, there's not easily conquered. Yet, we have this consolation with us at the heart of the conflict, the more glorious triumphs. What we obtained too cheap. We assume too lightly. It is dearness only that gives every thing. It's value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price on its goods. And it would be strange indeed if so celestial and article as freedom. Should not be highly rated. So those are the kind of the words that I could keep in mind as we go through this in every man here every person associated with this show would definitely be on the flag to make sure that the stretch stay read. So we're GONNA open up tonight and we're going to kind of open up the insanity that we've been seeing around our country regarding corona virus covid nineteen. Now everybody fever mind that none of us are medical professionals and our virologist by any stretch of the imagination where relating experiences and questions nothing that we say should be taken as any sort of diagnostic approach or any sort of Expert opinion. That said yours truly your host here Paul Spartan well, actually come at this from a perspective of being Osha certified in matters of respirators and and breathing protection. the rest of US come at this from from our own particular viewpoints and speculations. So let's just get started off So boys, we got we have. Governors California and Texas walking. Act Actual reopenings and we've got quote unquote more and indecisive confirmations, Cova, spreading but for but amazingly somehow in New York, they're reporting any new deaths or anybody WANNA start with an opinion on that. Honestly. You know I mean there's been some conversation prior to. Between myself and the other members. That's. Something is pulling the strings somewhere. Other than CDC, a hospital staff, surgeon, general things of that nature. Quite honestly, you know whatever it was whatever stream you Asian that recently came out that. Took a Italy Area. Jersey Pennsylvania. Great. Has stated sure. But why is it only California Texas? That more back that we know of your again to the states in the continental United States. Voting populace in those states. So my question now. WHO formed strings? Think. That's the overarching point here is that you know in in my experience not to get too nerdy and go too far down the rabbit hole but the same government that's telling us you know to be afraid and take particular actions like wearing cloth masks. Are the same ones that are telling us that the cloth masks don't work. I can tell you from from Osha Training and ocean certification that airborne pathogens particularly viruses. Are listed in the sub micron rage. Now that sounds that sounds really really you know interesting or maybe even boring but something that has to be realized is that when something is a sub micron particle. It passes right through the we've of a mask. Require its own moisture source. Now. Obviously state standard state standards vary but in the train I've received anything in the sub micron range requires a A. A SELF CONTAINED OXYGEN SOURCE With the use of a mask in that in that particular bio suit I mean if you WanNa, take a look and you think you're safe by wearing a cloth mask look at whatever rally just wears in a lab. When he's working with this type of contagion, it isn't a cloth masks. He wears a moon suit with a separate oxygen supply I mean there seems to be my perception is that the same people that are that are trying to Promote the panic are the ones trying to peddle a secure and make trillions and any thoughts on John? I think they're actually. No I. Think There's definitely you know financial motivation behind. This whether it's big whether it's by hospitals by a parent companies own hospitals. I mean. There's definitely something I think that financially pushes everything I mean between them getting you know a nice. paycheck at for each person, they list with Kobe or each person that unfortunately passes. listed. With Kovin. You, know they get a Giant financial. Yes if you will. Of money which I think pushes ally of these. Claims of more cases rising I mean like we. Previously is if you talk about the fact that of you know there's people around that work in the profession that there are things have been going around that they've sent. You know unused test the places. And they've come back positive when they haven't been used. But who who? Who who is the guy over in Africa, that tested a tested a fruit and a goat. And they both came back. Positive. Does anybody remember that news But you already your point but more to your point I believe the last figure I heard to. Last year I heard from the federal government was somewhere in the area of fifty to eighty five thousand dollars total for the treatment, and if the the particular person passes, the patient passes they get more. Does anybody have any information to dispute that because I think that was the last count that I heard. Be last information that I have. At, least. It's nineteen thousand dollars for a diagnosed case. Thirty eight thousand dollars if they are required hospital say and it goes up exponentially require respirator ICU care. They stay longer than hot. You're in you're out you're gone. So that being said. We all know that it'll supposedly. This bill. Gates himself and his research company. Or the ones that. Found viruses no did all the. Problems. I'm looking for here research. But. My question is if they did all the research, why did they come up with as well or have they? That's a question I posed to you folks. Well, I know they re you know they actually waiting to get ten thousand dollars plus from insurance companies and the federal government per dose mean. There's an argument to be made there. I mean, the guy is not a doctor nor is he of Arale just he just wants to make a make a killing on the here. Now that by the way is not an argument for any sort of socialized medicine. It's an absolute. It's an absolute disgusting power-hungry move at the cost of well forget about just American lives. What about globally, what have what is a million people in the ground now lifted discovered related At least one point three. If I remember correctly I could be wrong. Well, I got the second portion. Really a big to ask now is Bill Gates can't keep a bug out of his own computers what you're GONNA do with the world. Exactly number one key couldn't build a computer didn't crash three times a day for no reason. So why would we trust him with with people's lives? You know I mean he would. There was a there was a tit for tat went back and forth on social media several several years ago when he was still a once he was the kingpin of Microsoft. And he had mentioned something like You know if the auto industry had made many advances in the computer industry over the last twenty years, we'd all be driving cars that got a thousand miles to the gallon and went from zero to one hundred and two seconds to which I believe. It was the CEO at the time of Ford replied. Well. Yeah. But then the cars would crash twice a day for no reason. So. I mean you. Good Cryptic. I was GonNa say, well, then you you look at Osso. When you're talking about these numbers, go into hospitals. How many hospitals or possibly owned by the same parent company that owns the farms that the big farms that are gonna sit there and. Produce this vaccine all the sudden. Or? Not to say that they don't already have it and are just. Still waiting. I mean I know there's always testing and they have to get FDA approval and God knows what else but I mean, what's to say? that. They're not. You know getting twice the paychecks. On. Both things. Oh. Yeah. There's there's no doubt they're doubling down does absolutely no doubt doubling down your that said the other the other things that I've noticed here I don't know if everybody's been keeping up like I have. There's a Lotta unconstitutional shift happening. Okay. And I mean. Just heard I. Heard I. Heard Mark Heard Mark Giggling that that's fine because. The little that they'll get into that in a little bit but also just I wanna take a moment mark You serve this country with honor and distinction for several years in that in the military and I got to thank you for that Phoenix. You did as well and I got to say thank you for that. You protected my right to become a fat video playing hotdog eating copy guzzling douchebag that you see before you now and some of US servicemen appreciate that and Thank you. Appreciate. Bill. Hey they already did. They're called the IRS and believe me they're up my don't shit. I don't know where they I don't know where I ended maybe. It's not. So we've got measured we've got measures being proposed in in in multiple stages. Here is all the way from you know putting additional taxes on firearms to ammunition and then requiring a federal license. To purchase either. we've got the state of California. Who is you know? Well, let's just be honest they're doing what California does. It essentially eliminated their own their own Anti discrimination laws I don't know how that happened Where the hell does anybody see an end game here other than complete and total? Marxist. Shithole. That's where these lefties and I'm not GONNA say Liberals. Anymore. He's people are leftist-marxist pigs and by the way if any of you listening fuck off, don't ever come back. None of us here at. Fourth Yeah. This year at the Midnight Patriots give a flying fuck what you We don't have time to answer your e mails and believe me you're better off just turning off because if you heard that your heads probably. And I don't WanNa hear about it. Okay. You be somewhere else. All right. Man Okay. So we've got all this massive gun control legislation which I'm assuming. That this is going to veto once it hits his desk, roll it into something else and he doesn't see it. I mean. Does anybody else you positive outcome here other than I'll just say it an open civil war. Mean I feel like I feel like patience like like those are the Sierra on the on the on the conference. Are being, backed into a corner. Yeah we're basically damned if we do. We're damned if we don't any anybody want to comment on that. No Matt Aspect. Mark Yeah. Well, the thing is like you hope it doesn't cover some this ridiculous. Of course. By, by thing is I would I guess probably is right now I don't know. Civil. War who against who? In other words, how would how would you distinguish I'll be okay Tepa. Got It the OH black lives matter. Got It. But. How do you distinguish? You gotta be. That's a great question. That's the real. That's a real problem is that we're facing a A faceless boogeyman to keep us all in our homes and isolated from one another. We've got blatant constitutional no violations from New York California including the first second third amendments. Fourth amendment. I mean and they're just they're not apologetic about it. They're just in your face to. Has. Closed Down Churches and locked Rock Jewish people out of their own parts. What's his name from says. Yeah. Is violating blatantly violating the first. Amendment people they can't sing in. Church. Are you kidding me. I mean, I'm not a religious separation of church and state. Well and second of all I mean, how does anybody look at that and not go holy shit let the lawsuits commence. Honestly So, now here's the thing I. WanNa Make It. I WanNa make it very clear for the audience and even those in the group I am not advocating for an open civil war where we start shooting. Okay. I would also like to say here only for myself but I believe that that I do not believe in the Black Lives Organization the Black Lives Matter Organization. I believe in the message black lives matter just as much as every other life and we should all be equal before the law we should be overseas equal treatment especially before the law. But. I'm not going to back a group that is Marxist and comes out and basically says it if you don't give us what we want, we're GONNA burn the system that the ground. I mean all here. Again, I mean if you have said organization that is in fact, baking a threat whether they considered idol. They considered valid. It is still a threat to. The life. Well, exactly how how do we not take that? How do we not take that based on the the instances of the last month? Says we says, we all watched the the horrific murder of a of a citizen by by discussing human being police officer. How do we? How do we not take that as anything other than a threat of actual violence based on recent history? Therein. Lies The question that I would poses that to go along with remarks you know who who exactly is going to do is A. Government. It's a radical leaders. Of States counties, cities, whatever. Or is it going to be people for people? We have. What did you just leave knowing? When you just gotTa love the irony that the Minnesota governor had the balls to ask the white. House for for bailout money after they let their city burn. I, mean, I understand there are citizens that were affected by that. But you know my argument would be well I'll tell you what once you spend the money that you say from you know. From dissolving your police. Believe. Yeah what you spend that money go ahead. Save yourself though you know the. Four hundred million dollars spent annually on your police force. Etc.. And They're not gonNA, pass it out. There's a blank check to the people because well, you know we don't get our tax money that way. Exactly. HAVE YOUR IS A. Stalemate along the lines of. City Minneapolis Saint Paul's which Is Looking for a five hundred dollar bill out the government's GONNA help. They're going to have to get that money somewhere. Well exactly and the question. Phoenix afraid now, but to answer your question or respond to your statement. I believe you said they're not gonNA raise taxes through the roof to do it. Of course, they will. Of course they will in turn. Bring. I. That's. That's a real trick. Isn't is when the IRS gets involved or whatever State Department revenue they have comes and starts locking people up the people sheepishly combine. and. The guy will probably get reelected. Let's be honest. Well you will probably see. You'll probably see something for the cities that were affected by riots and everything put into like a another stimulus bill passed by the house. Like they have added that money there you go to a legal and yeah. And everything else that I wouldn't put it past the House to sit there and add a piece in there that every city that was affected by these riots or has hardships now. Get X. amount of. Millions of dollars as part of this. Bill to. Help, stimulate the economy and the people that actually are affected by all this. That, it should be helping they'll put their. Claws into it and put. Extra things that won't matter, and then it'll sit there and argue back and forth between the House, and the Senate for God knows how long Because they won't budge on wasn't it? Well one thing you have to love about the strategy employed by the Democrats they're gonNA. They're gonNA try to stick it in something that make the president look bad if he vetoes it. Oh. Yeah. It'll be. It'll be some sort of. Bill and he'll have to it, and then they'll scream how he doesn't care about children. Exactly among the media will be all over it. Media will be all over at bashing him. Oh. Yeah. Yeah. The president doesn't care about the future. There for the last four years anyway. Well Yeah they've they've. It's funny. I. Yeah I was GONNA say I. Johnson and Nixon for sure. But you know twenty I hear people talking about Oh. Trump won't accept the results of the twenty twenty election loses you guys still haven't accepted the fact that you're get forty. Or the fact that impeachment failed yeah. Yeah the. Everything else. Rono. Everything else that you've thrown at them hasn't stuck. Exactly this is. This is reality you know this is not theory. All this stuff is happened. You know. I saw something today and I don't remember where it was talking about the reason that you know that. They want to sit there and blame trump for not being ready for this pandemic and everything was because the other half of the fence was sitting there. So busy trying to get him out for the last four years that he couldn't take time to focus. On being prepared for anything like that. The funny part is, is I I'm trying. I'm trying to I'm I don't know about you guys, but I'm tired of hearing how Trump getting the blame for a hundred and thirty thousand body bags. Here this is this is the thing we need to do things. We need to change the story number one it should be only a hundred, thirty, thousand, five bags why? If if anybody recalls I do specifically PURDIS MR TRUMP DONALD TRUMP put a travel ban in effect once we had ten positive cases in this country, the left assailed him for weeks for doing it. Okay. Nancy. Pelosi went to Chinatown encourage people not to wear masks Blah Blah. Xenophobic Racist Blah Blah Blah, pick your s that's yacht called, and now all of a sudden they WANNA blame him for one hundred, thirty, thousand body bags may explain something if he hadn't done what he did when he did, there'd be a million three bodybags. Okay end of discussion this has nothing to do with mass. This is all a political fucking game and and I'm tired of hearing about it. Except from you guys I love your new guys. DOTS. I. Think. Let's just put that on record right now. Yeah you're paid to talk matter of fact, we don't pay you at all. Yes. I think we have a contract we'll get. something. About our bucks and it'll happen advil or something like that. I. Think it was under someone nine. I was a corner of starbucks eight was a quarter of an advil and half starbucks get it straight monthly and you're no. Damage. Send Me. Oreo. Wait a minute. I want kids count. You want to renegotiate. All of your agent moved to Seattle. Yeah exactly somebody please his comments to that brick wall over there. Oh Yeah. Yeah. All right I feel like I've rented enough. Is there anything you gentlemen WANNA cover that I missed? How `bout? Redskins finally caving. By quest over we're going we're going for football. Then we're GONNA touch the Third Rail Ladies and gentlemen he just licked and grabbed it go right ahead phoenix. I did read an article that. There are some and I'm not saying a whole bowl loan. I'm not saying that YOU KNOW ENTIRE PATIENT O. Or and it's hard tribal right that there are in fact, some of the indigenous votes, native Americans. That want keep it because it actually gives them a sense of ownership relevant. We've along on this we have this. We can follow this because that is you know a depiction of our people. What's the Redskins fans great. I have no problem with that if there. was somebody like football but hey, you know I, see it representation in my people here. Thank you. There are well, we don't get me wrong that no, all fuck you and take it other. Cash kind of it's actually kind of funny that you mentioned that being that I'm also for those of us this for those of you just tuning in and getting no us as we get to know you I, am a football nut job I have been since my early days Yes. I was GONNA. Say I think there's actually incriminating proof out there wasn't much of a about football I gotta tell you. My love for the game has often outweighed all of this You know all the polit political bullshit that's going on in the game for quite some time. Get into Kapernick, that's a whole other rent for me that lasts about forty five minutes and maybe we'll do an episode just on that Now, there was always my understanding in watching anything about the Washington redskins and and the history of them that the that the team was supposedly named for one of their assistant coaches who was native American and it was if anybody. I played football I I. I. I know that Phoenix not sure if you did mark You know everybody everybody on the football field to talk shit and especially to your friends okay and Just because you have some sort of negative pejorative is a nickname, doesn't mean that people hate you Okay. So The, the the legend was and I've actually since found out found out, different resin was at the team was named for in honor of one of their beloved assistant coaches. Evidently that's not the case. Racist over racist overtones aside I? Mean we can dissect anything want. Come up with all kinds of. The point being is, why don't we just name? The region Caucasians and everybody'll be happy. Okay I mean. Seriously also living in living in Florida I gotTa tell you the university or she state has a deal to to use the seminole name from the from the seminal nation. They paid them royalties every year, which is why you don't hear this here the Indigenous People screaming about Florida state. Okay. So You know I I don't I don't want to say they haven't been relevant for twenty years. Hey easy. I. Agree I agree too I mean my head. One is, Emma water but. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute mark. Are You All I I. Take over the gators day. Well me too because. No. Fan. You know what you know University of Miami and the Florida. GATOR gator. Yeah. So It's just block. Gives you wondering we all love each other teams until we play each other so that that being said. Does anybody have any idea about the outrage regarding redskins? Honestly. I mean I might just you know that stupid that I don't see the problem with the name it's the name of sports team. Okay. I mean we'RE GONNA change the Cleveland Indians. Are we gonNA change you know aerobics Today. But that's again that's a whole other. That's a whole other thing. But how many? Are they are all the sports teams just to be to be called the daisies and you know we're good to go. Or how about the banana flavor wouldn't? Well, this is like football gets get. Exactly. Yeah. Very wrapped up about injuries and things like that. Like five put flags on. Let's play flag football. But that's really the other thing I mean. You can argue that these guys are being paid wages that are equivalent to see to. Well, okay. hazard pay I mean there's they're making millions and millions of dollars. No offense I, what what what what come? Okay. These these guys mostly have guaranteed contracts. So, you break your leg. You're out of the game you're still getting paid and you should have gotten a degree so you should be able to join the workforce afterwards. Well. Puffing along the line that you know you're getting my mom bought list during my day. Is. Lump everything together all of one. We have you know events that have taken place because of. What took place. In A now it's moved to now we're going to start tearing down statues of anybody that. Could would did whatever. But now okay. Well, we need to keep that ball rolling. So we need this Norfolk Russell. Hey. Let's NFL take. Let's go up for baseball teams. Blackhawks. I love the fact that the blackhawks till they told those guys to stuff it. They're like, no, we're not change Noel. I mean yeah, and also also the the pretty big assumption there is that these people that are tearing down statues have any clue who they are I mean want to remove a statue wondering. I it's like I'll take the consequences of not taking US history for eight hundred Alex. Basically. Look, we get to wipe out four. Daily double. All right. So we'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA. PULL DOWN WE'RE. GonNa pull out Lincoln and we're GONNA pull down the statue of an abolitionist. Yeah. Let's do that. Oh Yeah. Well, they're not even educated. They're pulling down you know. They're pulling down. Statues of people that fought four slavery. To to abolish slavery, they're pulling down. I mean I saw they ruined the Frederick Douglass. Oh Yeah Yeah Yeah you mean the guy that advised Lincoln on how to actually take slavery down Gee I can't imagine why you hear him down. Clearly again, that's That's World Super Eight Hundred Alex. Exactly exactly no no, it's not world history. It's common core history. That's that's right. And? There is no wrong answer to one plus one. Knew exactly.

"But before this could happen, he would have to go one level deeper into the hell that he was now living in. January, I, of eighteen, thirty three Frederick Douglass was handed over to a man named Edward Covey. Edward Covey was a farmer nearby, and he had a reputation that he considered highly valuable. He was known as a slave breaker. And what this meant was other slave, owners and masters would send their more stubborn and difficult slaves to Mr. Covey spent he could. And let's not sugarcoat this. That Mr. Covey could simply beat the hell out of the slaves that were sent to him mercilessly in an effort to break them and their spirit, and send them back to their owner where they would be much more manageable after that. And so it was on January first eighteen, thirty, three as we've said. That Frederick Douglass entered into. Mr Covey's care for a period of one year. So that he could be beaten and broken as a slave. What things would not go as planned for Mr Covey? He was used to taking slaves and breaking them as we've said. But Frederick Douglass wasn't your ordinary slave. And Mr. Covey would soon find that out the hard way. Do..

"So. Let's pause here for a moment to again. Take all this in. Can You imagine the helplessness Frederick Douglass must have felt at that moment. I mean absolutely no way out of any of it. He had fainted hit been beaten as a result of his fainting. He had walked seven miles to his master's house in this bloody condition. Only to be told to go back or else he'd now get whipped again. I mean. I am floored that this was someone's reality. I mean there was absolutely nowhere to turn for shelter from the Damn Storm. So Douglas then made his way back to covey's farm arriving early the next morning, thinking the whole while about the beating that he was going to take from covey once he arrived. and Lo and behold Douglas said that he had barely made it over Covey's fence line before covey was running out of his house with the whip coming straight for him. And Douglas here courageously ran into the Cornfield and he hid from Covey. As of Corn Rows, never answering Covey's demands to show himself until covey finally gave up trying figuring that Douglas would have to emerge at some point. Which of course Douglas eventually did? But something weird happened after that. Covey. Left him alone. And? It wasn't like that in cross paths, either they did. Covey even asked Douglas a day or so later to help drive the pigs on the farm to a nearby lot which Douglas did for him. And all the while Covey still showed no signs of hostility towards Douglas. Till one day. It was a few days after Douglas Return to the farm that he was in the horse stable. And remember up until this point covey had shown no further hostility towards him. Douglas was in the loft on the second floor of the horse stable, throwing bales of hay down below. When, he was done. He was coming down the ladder. When all of a sudden covey burst into the stable with a long rope. He caught Douglas on the ladder and went right to work hurriedly trying to tie Douglas's feet together. Douglas suddenly realized what was happening and tried to jump from the ladder, but his feet were caught, and he fell into the hey below. And at that point, Covey stood over him. And Douglas knew just what was about to happen. And here is where it all turned for Douglas and a half to let him say what happened next with his own words quote. Mr Covey seem to now think that he had me and could do what he pleased. But, at this moment, from whence came the spirit I don't know, but.

"And he made his way across the farm to find out why. When he arrived, he found Douglas laying down and not moving. He asked Douglas. What was wrong and Douglas? Being barely able to speak quietly told him that he had fainted and was. To get up. Covey waited a few seconds, and then he kicked Douglas in his stomach and told him to get up. Douglas then tried to raise himself up, but covey kicked him again harder this time. Douglas tried again to get up and Covey again kicked him in the stomach. Mr Covey then grabbed a Hickory slat and whipped Douglas, and then covey soon took the Slat, and hit Douglas over the head with it cutting him severely. At that point covey stopped and stood there and watched the blood. Pour Down Douglas his face from the wound. Covey then left him there to attend to some other business on the farm. And Douglas remained on the ground bleeding profusely. A little while later Douglas was able to get up, and he decided then and there that he was going to walk to his master's House. Remember again that he was given to. Mr Covey to be broken by his actual master. So Douglas decided to walk the seven miles to his master's House to tell him what covey had just done to him. So Douglas waited for the right time when Covey was nowhere to be seen to make his move for the woods. But just before he entered the woods, covey caught sight of him in the distance, and yelled for him, demanding that he returned to his work and that if he didn't return immediately, he would be whipped mercilessly once again. But Douglas Ignored Covey's calls and moved as fast as he could into the woods to find cover amongst the trees and bushes. Douglas States in his writings here quote. I had not gone far before. My little strength again failed me. I could go no farther. I fell down and lay for a considerable time. The blood was yet. From the wound on my head and for a time I thought I should bleed to death and think now that I should have done so, but the blood so mad at my hair as to stop the wound. After lying there for three quarters of an hour I nerve myself up again and started on my way through blogs and briers barefooted bareheaded, tearing my feet, sometimes nearly every step. And after a journey of about seven miles occupying some five hours to perform it, I arrived at my master's store. Quote. And Douglas goes onto. Describe his appearance after this incident and journey stating quote. I then presented an appearance enough to affect any but a heart of iron. From the crown of my head to my feet. I was covered with blood. My hair was clotted with dust and blood. My shirt was stiff with blood. My legs and feet were torn in sundry places with briers and thorns, and were also covered in blood. I supposed I, looked like a man who had escaped a den of wild beasts, and barely escaped them. and quote. But despite his appearance, and despite the heartfelt pleased that he made to his master once he found him. His master denied him any protection from Covey, and insisted that he makes his way back to covey as soon as possible or else, he would whip him also..

"When we left off last episode Frederick Douglass was simply put in the throes of Hell. Like most other slaves he was being worked till he physically couldn't work anymore and then pushed to keep going. He was whipped beaten and starved, and while he still dreamed of one day escaping to freedom, the dream was slowly fading further, and further from his mind as the endless beatings and whippings continued. He grew numb as a person stubborn as a slave and difficult to manage by his owner. So on January first of eighteen thirty three. Douglas was sent for a period of one year by his Master and owner. To live with a man named Edward Covey. And the reason that he was sent to live with Mr Covey was simple. Covey had a reputation as a slave breaker. And Frederick Douglass from his owners perspective needed to be broken. Both in body and spirit. And it wasn't long after Douglas arrived at Mr Covey's farm that the efforts to break him started. A week into his time with Covey Douglas, took the first beating. Douglas was sent to the woods with a team of oxen to gather a load of wood. But on his way into the woods, one of the oxen was startled and jumped. And the whole cart toppled over and was damaged. When Covey heard what happened. He ordered Douglas back into the woods. But this time. Covey followed him. As soon as they were amongst the trees, covey used his axe to cut a few large switches of a gum tree. And a switch again is a thin branch that is used as a whip. Covey then clean the switches with his pocket knife. He then ordered Douglas to take off his shirt and turnaround. Douglas, knowing what was about to happen. Didn't move or respond to the order. Covey ordered him again to take off his shirt and turn around. When Douglas didn't move this time. Covey according to Douglas, quote. Rushed me with the fierceness of a tiger, tore off my clothes and lashed me till he had worn out the switches, cutting me so savagely as to leave the marks visible for a long time after. This whipping was the first of a number just like it..

"Which you're about to hear was first published about two years ago in May June of two thousand eighteen. And a good portion of you listening have never heard this series because this was a series that wasn't published on the podcast main feed, but published on the shows Patriot page. But, I did think that with all that's now happening in our country and with us. Hearing Frederick Douglass his name thrown around the National News, quite a bit, and with earlier this month, inexplicably a statue of Frederick Douglass in Rochester New York I believe being vandalized and then pulled down. I thought it might be a good idea or at least appropriate to release this into the main feed now so that more people can hear some of the incredible stories from Frederick Douglass Life. And so what you're about to hear comes mostly from Frederick Douglass himself who wrote about all this in his memoir, which was published in eighteen, forty five, so one hundred seventy five years ago, and that autobiography was titled Narrative of the Life Frederick Douglass an American slave. And like I said this was published in eighteen, forty five but I read this book for the first time. Probably Eleven or twelve years ago. And I just remember reading it and being so moved by this book specifically the part where? Douglas reaches his breaking point as a slave, and then fights back against his oppressor, and against the injustice that he feels. And this is a book if you haven't read it. I highly recommend you read. But in the absence of reading that I offer you these stories from his life. And this was a two-part series, so I'm guessing both parts at the same exact time so that there's no delay in you hearing the full story and just hit him back to back. With that preamble behind us I now bring you stories from the life of Frederick Douglass. A. Quote. You have seen how a man was made a slave. You shall see how a slave was made a man. And quote?.

House Vote On Washington, DC Statehood Was Years In The Making

"Being two hundred and thirty two votes in the affirmative one hundred and eighty vote in the negative. Last Friday the House of Representatives passed legislation that would increase the number of stars on the American flag from fifty to fifty one for the first time members approved a bill that would make the capital of the United States Washington DC its own state right now. It's a federal district basically. Within a country that typically houses the national government and is directly controlled by it. The bill says that while federal buildings like the White House would still be federal property. Everything else would be part of this new state, and instead of the District of Columbia. It would be called the Washington Douglas Commonwealth named after abolitionist. Frederick Douglass in theory. It doesn't take that much to create a new state, basically the house Senate and the president. All have to be on board, but DC's history is a federal district is complicated. To explain. We have to go back to the seventeen hundreds. During the American Revolution, the Continental. Congress didn't have a permanent home. The continental capital bounced around from New York to Philly, and then as the result of a compromise between southern and northern states they met in the middle literally in seventeen. Ninety President George. Washington picked spot for the nation's capital along the Potomac River, and it was named the district of. Columbia And the founding fathers wanted the receipts they wrote into the Constitution that DC should be federal city article, one section eight clause seventeen to be exact. They said otherwise Congress in the White House could be too influenced by the state government in which it lived. Tradeoff, though was that DC? Residents lost their representatives in Congress and in the Electoral College. This wasn't something people just let slide. In fact, someone in Congress has fought for DC to become a state every year since nineteen sixty five. Remember no taxation without representation from history class. That's when Americans under British rule demanded representatives across the pond in exchange for their tax dollars in the seventeen hundreds. And you can still find that slogan on DC license plates in twenty twenty, because district residents pay federal taxes, but they don't get to elect representatives with power to represent their interests in the federal government. Instead they have a local government, but even that is still subject to federal control through something called. Rule by invoking home rule Congress can actually block any law. Local officials or residents support. Some things have changed since seventeen ninety, though in its to thirty years of taxation without representation, the D. C. Population has grown to over seven hundred thousand people that's larger than the populations of some states, including Vermont and Wyoming and thanks to the twenty-third amendment district residents now at least gets vote for president and have their vote counted. DC has three votes in the electoral college, but advocates argue three electoral votes is not enough, and they've faced opposition in large part from Republicans in Congress. That's because Washington. DC residents have voted overwhelmingly for Democratic presidential candidates, so the concern is if you make it, state dens will get more of an upper hand in Congress moving forward. Mike we said this is a fight that's come up pretty much every year for decades, but this year the fight for DC to become a state has stayed in the spotlight. That's partly because of the recent protests over racial injustice. In DC. The trump administration has sent federal officers to clear protesters from the streets. Here was DC mayor Muriel bowser on PBS last month, where the capital city were federal district where seven hundred thousand tax paying Americans and I'm the Mayor Governor County executive all at once, but because we are not a state the federal government can encroach on our atonomy. Those recent clashes between protesters and federal officers have raised more questions about whether it's fair for the federal government to have so much. Say in how the city operates. Advocates also argue that the fight for DC to become a state is a civil rights issue. The majority of the district residents are people of color which means Washington. DC is one clear example of a place in which black Americans are being denied representation. So. DC statehood passing in the house last week was historic, but to be clear. It's not likely to pass the Republican controlled Senate. And president trump is also said he opposes the idea which means this bill will probably go nowhere, but if the balance of power changes in Washington and November it could be back on the table again and other US territories buying for statehood like Puerto Rico home to more than three million Americans could also have a shot at finally becoming part of the Union. Happy for the July.

"Anthony and other leaders of the women's suffrage movement which left some pretty ugly scars in the kinds of things they ended up saying to to one another although Douglas to be perfectly frank took a lot of that as a gentleman or as his foes stanton and Anthony showed deep kind of racism that had always been there but I do WanNa GonNa say Douglas is this set of contradictions like most great leaders are most great people he was this radical Patriot as you said earlier but you know he also levied some of the most withering attacks we've ever had on racism American hypocrisy and on the craven defenses of slavery he <hes> on the one hand you know always stood up for anyone undergoing oppression Russian and indignity and so on and yet he became when the war came he became a thumping war propaganda is advocating the death in the killing of every slave holder and every confederate soldier who defended the demon south when you read some his war propaganda during the warriors it will cause you to wince kinds of things that he says he was on the one hand always a proponent of the natural rights tradition edition and equality before law he was an advocate of activist government on the other hand he also preached inside and out Black Self reliance is did most black leaders of the nineteenth century so you you can find all of these kinds of contradictions in our paradoxes and then the product is of course also there and his private right David Blake. We've just got a couple of minutes left and in this brings us to the point in the conversation where we are. Oh you and I are speaking about Frederick Douglass life here we are in two thousand eighteen in an America that of course has not left the legacy of racism behind in any way shape or form in fact you know <hes> for many many reasons we can say it's as pressing as ever so I'm just wondering from from our from this perch here in this year in this time in the nation as it is now just got a couple of minutes left. I mean what are the lessons that you think we ought to be taking speaking from Frederick Douglass Life while as we said earlier if you read enough Douglas you'll sometimes think that that sentence or that paragraph was in today's headlines whether it's him examining the idea of race or the problem problem of the legacies of slavery or the problem of racial violence or the relationship of equality the relationship of people to the fourteenth amendments <hes> command of equality before law or birthright citizenship citizenship <hes> or even when we're talking about this phenomenon now of mass incarceration you know what are we capable of doing. <hes> you know a one human being to another or the whole idea how you fight power power from outside of that power Douglas is there as a template in fact. I think one of the most lasting parts of his legacy is that he is that prototypical example at least in America of the old radical outsider you know the old activist abolitionist who with time experiences victory a real triumph of his cause in the middle of his life in his in his forties and yet then lives thirty more years here's to reap what in effect became by the eighteen eighteen nineties of the betrayal and nearer ratio of those same victory so what what does the radical outsider do when he becomes with time. I'm a political insider have many examples of those people around the world from Nelson Mandela to <hes> many great leaders of the Civil Rights movement and even to that <hes> that political organizer who became came President United States well I. It seems as if everyone wants to claim Douglas says their own yeah Oh yeah he's become a little bit like Lincoln in that sense. Everyone wants to get Douglas on their side. So the conservative movement today especially Libertarians go in and they pluck out those passages from his writings about self reliance but the left plucks out his radicalism and he's all of those things you can't fit Frederick Douglass in a box and it's what makes him so interesting well.

"This hour with David blight. He's author of the new biography. Frederick Douglass prophet of freedom and professor blade. I have to say we've got a lot of response coming into this conversation online someone over Twitter. Someone calling themselves on T entity was reacting to earlier in this conversation. I was struggling with saying that's that white Americans owned black Americans in slavery and aunty entity says say owned, the persistent whitewashing of American slavery. And indeed all of American history is exactly why this country is riddled with festering, social cancers of all kinds and auntie NC. If you're still listening, I have to say, I definitely take your point my struggle with it was not an effort to whitewash history. But rather just feeling the pain of the truth of American history still to this day? So I just wanted to let her know that and I keep going. Back to Frederick Douglass his own writings themselves and David Blake. I'm just going to quote him again here because you know, in the pain and the truth of slavery. There was a another section of one of his own autobiographies where Douglas was writing about hearing men and women sing sing songs as they were enslaved. And he says that the hearing of those wild notes always depressed his spirit filled him with ineffable ineffable sadness that he has frequently found himself in tears while hearing them to those songs, I trace my first glimmering conception of the dehumanizing character of slavery. And I can never get rid of that conception, so. Yeah, beautiful words, but what is describing there's his memory as a child at the White House plantation. He said this always happened on allowance day, which was one day every month when all the slaves from around the vast why plantation would come to.

"To the north from the south their partnership would be short lived as ABRAHAM LINCOLN was assassinated that next year, some historians. Believe Lincoln's widow Mary Todd Lincoln gave Frederick Lincoln's walking stick in honor of their friendship after the civil war with slavery, finally abolished. Frederick Douglass turned his attention to a new issue in the fight for equality voting rights in eighteen sixty six Frederick Douglass along with feminists Elizabeth, Katie Stanton. And Susan b Anthony founded the equal rights association and organization. In that fought for the universal suffrage of black people and women that same year Douglas was elected to represent Rochester, New York at the national loyalist convention where he and other radical Republicans discussed what would later become the fifteenth amendment this amendment prohibited state governments from denying a citizen the right to vote based on that citizen's race color or previous condition of servitude. However, the debate over the fifteenth amendment led to arguments within the equal rights association about whether rights for women or black people should be prioritized. Frederick claim that Elizabeth Stanton was ignoring the importance of black male voters who were still afforded less legal privileges than white women Stanton argued that women's suffrage deserve to be spoken about and both causes should remain United regrettably in eighteen sixty nine the two sides split in the equal rights association. Dissolved also in eighteen sixty nine newly elected president Ulysses s grant appointed Frederick Douglass to head a commission on the annexation of the Dominican Republic to the US president grant wanted to annex the Dominican Republic for two reasons to ensure a European power didn't take it I and to create a safe haven for black people suffering in the United States. Grant appointed Douglas to become an ambassador in the Dominican Republic where he would investigate and create a report in favor of annexation this appoint. Made Frederick Douglass the first black man to hold an and Basseterre position in the United States. As is often the case when society progresses some fought back against the movement for equality in the wake of the civil war's end and the emancipation of American slaves racist organizations, like the Ku Klux Klan began to form by the following year. The K K K had a chapter in every southern state even with legislation like the enforcement act of eighteen seventy one which gave the president more power to intervene against white supremacy organizations racial violence was a constant danger in eighteen seventy two the Douglas family home was burned down in a suspicious fire. It's unclear who may have started the fire, but it was widely considered to be arson as Frederick had many enemies in anti civil rights circles, tragically fire consumed all their old copies of the northstar which by then were out of print the fire didn't discuss. George Frederick after losing their home, the family moved to Washington DC where Frederick continued his civil rights work in eighteen seventy four Douglas was brought on as president of the Friedman savings and trust company. The Bank was created by the United States Congress in eighteen sixty five to offer aid to newly freed slaves. But by the time Frederick was appointed nine years later..

"He started publishing his own weekly abolitionist newsletter the north star. Its motto was quote, right? Is of no sex truth is of no color. God is the father of us all and we are all brethren and quote, the northstar became one of the most influential anti-slavery, newsletters of the era in addition to writing about abolitionists. Frederick also used the newsletter to fight for women's rights. Frederick was a member of the western New York anti-slavery society where he met women's rights activist Elizabeth McClintock, she invited into the first woman's rights convention in July of eighteen forty eight at Seneca, falls New York shortly after the convention Frederick published a statement in the north star that said, quote in respect to political rights, we hold woman to be justly entitled to all we claim for man, we go farther and express our conviction that all political rights, which it is expedient for man to exercise is equally. So for women and quote. Frederick social activism didn't stop with speeches in newspaper articles in the late eighteen forty's he and Anna opened up their home as one of the northernmost stops on the underground railroad. The secret path that escaped slaves used to get past the Mason Dixon, line and into Canada. The Douglas is also took in civil rights freedom fighters and other colleagues of Frederick's while Frederick was off giving talks Anna continue to support the family with work as a servant and shoe binder in her book, my mother as I remember Rosetta Douglass wrote that Anna ceaselessly provided for the family. So that Frederick could go out and fulfill his dreams while Anna was well, regarded among the community for her devoted motherhood and her underground railroad work reputation took a hit after two of Frederick's white European female colleagues moved in with them one of the women. Juliet griffiths. British abolitionist who'd helped Frederick start. The northstar lived with the family for three years, according to Rosetta Douglass. She would read aloud to Frederick when he was tired or depressed and often accompanied him when he travelled out of town. The second woman till you asking was a German abolitionist and feminist who stayed with the family over the summers for twenty two years unsurprisingly. Rumors began to surface that Frederick was having affairs with both. Julia. And till the Anna bore the weight of these rumors silently for her speaking up whether to affirm or deny the claims meant exposing to the world, the privacy of her home life. She wouldn't encourage the rumors by stirring, the pot in eighteen fifty seven when Frederick was thirty nine. Amanda, all the daughter of Frederick's old slave master Thomas Auld approached him after a lecture. Amanda had become an abolitionist, Frederick and. Amanda, became friends and maintained a written correspondence for several years. But although Frederick Amanda, moved past the scars of slavery with a peaceful reunion the rest of the country wasn't quite so ready for reconciliation. On April twelve eighteen sixty one after a confederate tack on fort Sumter in South Carolina. The civil war began Frederick was one of the first to advocate for free black men to participate in the war claiming they should be a part of the fight for their freedom. He later served as a recruiter for the fifty fourth, Massachusetts, volunteer infantry, regiment. His son Frederick Douglass junior was also recruiter and his other son. Louis Douglas went on to become a decorated member of the army in the early years of the war. Frederick was an adamant supporter of ABRAHAM LINCOLN. But in eighteen sixty three after Lincoln issued the emancipation proclamation Frederick met with Lincoln to express his grievances. Frederick was upset. Lincoln didn't use the proclamation to allow x-l-e-a-r the right to vote or use it to condemn the unequal pay and mistreatment of black soldiers Lincoln's oversight. In. This matter is likely the reason that Douglas supported John C, Freemont of the radical democracy party in the eighteen sixty four election Lincoln was reelected, and he apparently took Fredericks advice to heart in August of eighteen sixty four Lincoln asked Douglas to assist in preparations for aiding the newly freed slaves coming.

"And by the eighteen thirties. It was beginning to gain momentum in the more slavery reliant, south abolitionists and made a strong impression in Maryland in eighteen twenty seven with the establishment of the Maryland colonization society, which was an extension of the American colonization society. The ACS is form of abolition was to free all black slaves and send them to Africa where they would quote have a better chance at a quality. So they meant well, but their ideas for fixing slavery weren't. Always the smartest. The ACS faced backlash both from southern slave owners and from other abolitionists and freed black slaves who didn't see the sense in their radical plans, but controversy aside the formation of the MCS brought the abolitionist movement to Baltimore and to the attention of young Frederick Douglass v read newspapers that covered the abolitionist movement for the first time in his life.

"Baltimore. Baltimore was Frederick's first experience with an actual city. He was shocked by what he saw though richer families in Baltimore own slaves. The city slaves seem to have a tremendous amount of freedom. This city had a different social order than the more isolated plantations. It was considered improper to be a cruel slave, owner urban slave owners didn't want people to think they were too poor to care for their slaves. And so city slaves were often, well fed and had nice clothes. Frederick arrived. At the home of Hugh Alden. His wife so FIA surprised to be welcomed with open arms in his autobiography Douglass wrote debt aside from the moral crime of owning a slave. So FIU was a kind woman shortly after his arrival in Baltimore so FIA began teaching Frederick to read. The lessons didn't last long when Hugh all realized what his wife was doing. He put a stop to it in. Hugh, all Joan words, it was quote on lawful and unsafe to teach a slave to read, and quote, he wasn't completely correct about that many states at that time had laws in place that forbade owners from teaching their slaves to read a write Maryland did not have any such laws. However, there was still a negative stigma around contributing to slave literacy, Hugh, expressed a commonly held belief that education was key in helping slaves become free citizens, which is why he didn't want Frederick learning to read a slave who could think for himself would be unruly and difficult to manage for his master to hear him say it if a slave learn to read, quote, it would forever unfit him to be a slave. He would become at once unmanageable and of no value to his master and quote Frederick over. Overheard Hugh say that and from that moment on he wanted nothing more than to learn how to read and write Frederick Douglass serve the alds for seven years during that time he secretly continued to teach himself to read and write he was beaten by both Hugh and Sophia whenever he was caught. This happened often. So FIA had adopted Hughes views on the dangers of an educated slave. She would become suspicious if Frederick was out of her sight for too long, he might be in another room with a book. The house wasn't always a safe place to continue his lessons. So Frederick learned other ways to continue his education, for example, he'd steal food from the house before I went on errands, then he'd trade the food with poor white children in new and exchange for words. In his dealing with these white children Frederick was often overcome with frustrations poor not these children would grow up and be free. He would only grow up to continue being a slave. Douglas wrote, quote, I would sometimes say to them I wished I could be as free as they would be when they got to be men you will be free as soon as you are twenty one. But I am a slave for life. Have not I as good a right to be free as you have and quote when he was twelve Frederick obtained a copy of the Columbian orator, the Colombian order was a collection of speeches that was commonly used to teach school children to read and write. It contained an essay dialogue between a master and the slave which explores a fictional conversation. Where slave pleads his case for freedom with his master in the dialogue, the master brings forward every. Common argument in favor of slavery. But the slave rebuts him and asserts that he deserves liberty as much as his master does. Eventually, the slave owner is so swayed by listening to the slaves perspective that he frees him just as his owners feared the more Frederick read the more he became discontent with his position in society. Frederick Stotts became dark. He considered killing himself. It was the only way he could see to escape his life of unjust servitude. It was around this time that Frederick became aware of the abolitionist movement. Abolitionists argued that slavery was morally evil and should be outlawed. The movement was rooted in the northern United States, which largely did not rely on slave labor..

"It's difficult to point to the one thing that Douglas is best known for a slave who taught himself to read and write Douglass escaped to freedom as a young man, he became a bestselling author with his autobiography narrative of the life of Frederick Douglass in American slave, which captured the tragic brutal conditions of American slavery. He became prolific in the abolitionist movement was friends with president ABRAHAM LINCOLN and was the first African American to be nominated for the office of vice president but Douglas's storied life began among the worst possible conditions. He wasn't born a free, man. He wasn't even born Frederick Douglass. Frederick Douglass was born Frederick Augusta's. Washington Bailey at some time around the year eighteen eighteen in Talbot county, Maryland, we should note here that because slave owners often didn't keep birth or death records of their slaves. Douglas's exact date of birth is unknown. In this episode will be using approximations of Douglas's age as we go through a story. Douglas was born into slavery on the property of Colonel Edward, Lloyd, one of the richest landowners in Maryland, Lloyd owned thousands of acres of land that were run by his clerks who were essentially managers of the massive plantations in his autobiography, he names his mother Harriet Bailey as a slave on the plantation. He claims that his father was actually a white man Colonel Aaron Anthony who served as a superintendent and clerk of the plantation where Frederick was born lack of birth records and agenda. Cultural taboo, on white people procreating with slaves means that no one can know for sure if Anthony was in fact, Douglas's father, it was common practice at the time to separate slave infants from their mothers, and please the baby care of an older slave that couldn't work in his autobiography Douglas guest at the reasoning behind this cruel practice. He wrote quote for what this separation is done. I do not know unless it be to hinder the development of the child's affection toward its mother and to blunt and destroy the natural affection of the mother for the child. This is the inevitable result. And quote as a baby Frederick was sent away to a different farm and placed in the care of his grandmother. The attempt to destroy the affection between Harriet Bailey and her son did not take at night Harriet would sneak away from her plantation and trick twelve miles through the dark wood. To see her son though, Douglas had few memories of this time in his early life. He does remember her singing him to sleep as a child? Harriet died.

"The threat of being sent to the deep south american country how did the slavonia americans reconcile the right to liberty within slavery well that's an answer to the interesting question i mean in effect it's an impossible act of reconciliation and if you think about the intellectual maneuvers that white americans especially powerful white americans make before 1830 generally speaking the justification for slavery is it's a necessary evil so in effect is something that's been entailed on the united states and it's very hard to get rid of and many of the founders in particular contrast the british emancipation struggle were in effect britain is charged with emancipating slaves who will become free in the caribbean with their problem dilemma which is if they free slaves they'll have to live alongside them so in a sense the probe of anti slavery in the united states is also a problem o of integration and are great hopes for integration amongst anti slavery campaigners even people at thomas jefferson and james madison so the kind of leading founders rhetorically commit to this that our great hopes for integration which by 1815 1820 are beginning to fade away and in maryland where frederick douglass is growing up one of the most powerful solutions to slavery amongst those people to think it's wrong is when black people afraid they should be sent somewhere else so in effect what you get in maryland is the idea that even if you can persuade slaveholders that they should abolish slavery the longterm future of black people is to be sent outside the united states so in effect what you don't get even amongst the antislavery campaigners is a commitment to integration and equality it's a commitment to expulsion and we know that when the lewis racist fullpower power and when facetoface it lincoln he brought that up and stood is grown marie serb this boy hussein is to whipped from a color watched her whipped and he was oversee morally a were counted kick karn cancelled that how do you become politically away.
