Terrorism in America Isn’t New–Nor will it cease anytime soon

Recently a friend at church asked me a question that showed he had been thinking. He said “Was there anything like the BLM around before the Civil War?” It was a good question, one most people would not have thought of in our day of gross historical ignorance.

After a bit of thought what popped into my mind was terrorist John Brown’s atrocities in Kansas and his attack on the arsenal at Harpers Ferry, Virginia. The parallels to today are quite striking. Brown was a 19th century terrorist trying to do away with slavery. I have seen comments that he was some sort of communist. I would not doubt that. He had two Forty-eighters in his merry little band of terrorists when he was in Kansas. I don’t think they came east with him.

While in Kansas he made a point of attacking Southern families, even if they owned no slaves. John Brown and his “Northern Army” made war on Southerners even before Abe Lincoln did–just because they were Southerners. Terrorists always make war on innocent people. It scares most people into non-resistance to the terrorists efforts and goals.

I found an informative article by Steve Byas in the Feb. 7th, 2017 issue of the New American Magazine entitled John Brown’s Lethal Legacy. Mr. Byas went into quite a bit of detail about Brown’s terrorist activity and also about the wealthy northeasterners that financed and supported it. You should be able to find this on the internet. I did.

In referring to Brown’s terrorist killings in Kansas, Mr. Byas noted: “These brutal murders took place during the struggle between violent pro–and anti-slavery forces for control of the Kansas territory–known to history as ‘Bleeding Kansas.’ While the body of John Brown, as the song says, is ‘moldering in the grave,’ his example still inspires modern radicals, who justify violence upon the innocent if the cause is ‘just.’ Following the election of Donald Trump, Brown was specifically cited by some extremists to justify a violent response…and behind similar violent protesters today–are the radical men with the money,…” Indeed, the group that is called The Secret Six that supported and financed John Brown were the George Soros’ and Rockefellers and Fords of their day–“willing to invest money in treason” as Unitarian Thomas Wentworth Higginson said in that day.

If you want to check out what some of the present day radicals on the left are doing then do an internet search on The John Brown Gun Clubs.

Another interesting site you might want to check out is https://www.redneckrevolt.org/principles This site claims it is “putting the red back in redneck.” Doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what they are talking about. Where Black Lives Matter is directed at blacks, this site is directed at whites, but they stand for the same things that BLM does–tearing down capitalism and “white supremacy” and their (not your) right to revolution.

And one more for your reading pleasure https://www.unz.com/mwhitney/blms-war-on-the-deplorables The sources listed here should give you some idea of what is going on in our day–and what has gone on since the War of Northern Aggression–and before. It’s nothing new, folks. To figure it out all you need is a sense of history and being willing to connect the dots. It’s like the Bible says in Ecclesiastes, “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done; and there is no new thing under the sun.”

Leftist radicals in the 1850s had the same goals as they do in our day–the destruction of our country and its culture and its real history. Didn’t know it had been going on that long, did you? That’s because most of us were never taught real history–but it’s not too late for us to learn.

  1. Funny thing about John Brown and his abolitionist marauders. Not many know or understand why John Brown and his abolition marauders were in the Kansas Territory raiding and killing new settlers. Like today with Communist George Soros who, with other, anti-American traitors fund “Black Lives Matter” John Brown was funded by Northeastern “Robber Barons” or Industrialists who along with their new Republican Party, dedicated to industry, as was Abraham Lincoln, their first President, they wanted to dominate Congress and the presidency, which they did in 1860 with Lincoln’s ascent to the White House, with less than 40% of the popular vote I might add.

    Immediately the new Republican majority began passing tariff legislation that was detrimental to southern agriculture but beneficial to the Northeast.

    In any case the Northeastern “Robber Baron” industrialists, then in solid control of the Federal Government, needed additional votes in The U. S.House if they were going to be politically able to shut the southern agriculture Congressional delegation out of the Union legislation making process. The industrialization Congressional majority and industrialist Abraham Lincoln realized that they needed more industrial supporting State U.S. House delegates who were pro-industry.

    So, they first sent abolitionists, like John Brown, out to the Kansas Territory with his anarchist abolition army/criminals, to insure that territories in the West, of the Louisiana Territory, be given State-hood if they promised to come into the Union as industrial supporting States. The reason State politicians were eager to support industrialization was the “Robber Barons” of the Northeast and their new Republican Federal Government and President offered these potentially new State a deal the could not refuse.

    That deal was that the Northeastern industrialists promised to extend their industrial infrastructure to the Western States applying to enter the Union. Each new State would have 1 U.S. House delegate for every 30,000 residents. They expected the Northeast industrialists and their industry leaning new President, Lincoln, and their new Republican Party’s congressional majority to provide the new industrial states the railways and canals needed to bring additional residents businessmen to the new Western States could build prosperous manufacturing businesses in their new Western States.

    There was a hitch for the Northeast Industrial Barons however…they didn’t have the financial resources to build their own Northeastern Manufacturing Infrastructure. With the election of former Whig Party operative, Abraham Lincoln, who was also a railroad company attorney was to shut the Southern agriculture states congressional delegation completely out of the legislation making process of the new Republican Party Union Congress majority. This they achieved in 1860. At a point Southern agriculture States and their overseas trading partners were paying some 80% of all the tariff and duties flowing into the Union Treasury. The new Republican Federal Government then began passing legislation to raise tariff and duties on Southern agriculture and their overseas trading partners to fund the States and Northeastern business tycoons construction of their Northeastern manufacturing infrastructure…

    Having been shut-out of the legislating process in the Union Congress and the new industrial new Republic President, Lincoln, signing rising tariff and duty tax bills, which were being passed by the new Republican Congress majority, to raise the funds the Northeast “Robber Barons” needed to build their manufacturing infrastructure in the Northeast and new Western States, but never offering to extend their infrastructure into the Southern agriculture States even thought the Southern agriculture States was being levied more and more tariff and duty taxes, as they came into the Union as industrial States…

    The oft claimed, that the struggle in Kansas and other ” Territory” states was whether or not the territories could allow agriculture migrants and their slaves to enter and farm in the new entering Western states to the Union. The catch however was, when a territory was a “territory” the Union Government had no say or constitutional authority over whether slaves could be brought into the new Western Territories or not. Territorial, i.e. states were ‘open states’ to slavery and agriculture activities, etc.

    The U.S. Constitution said nothing about the U.S. Government controlling Territories! Since what Lincoln and his Northeastern “Robber Baron” allies, and bosses, aimed to gain was voters in the Union House of Representatives, they ignored the constitutional fact that as soon as a Western state was voted into the Union by the Union Congress, they immediately came under the constitutional laws of the U.S.A., which guaranteed the Institution of Slavery in the U.S.A.!
    The Founding Fathers had already supported the ‘Institution of Slavery’ in the new U.S.A. and only the requirement that by 1808 no additional Slaves could be transported into the U.S.A., but the Founders did not attempt to end slavery in the U.S.A. Most rational level headed Americans supported slavery in both the South, North and West at that time in America’s history. And, Lincoln could have cared less about slaves at this point in his life…it was only after he had lost all of The War, Lincoln’s Tariff War, battles that he wrote his propaganda document the “Emancipation Proclamation” for, which was never intended to give slaves their freedom but to raise the moral of his, Lincoln’s Union troops, who were losing their battles to the Confederate State’s armies, and to raise the moral of the Northeastern residents who were supplying their young men to Lincoln’s meat-grinding machine as he, Abraham Lincoln and his Union General Scott covertly worked to implement their Anaconda Assault Plan against the Southern agriculture States, and the new Confederate States of America March in 1861 when Lincoln ordered Union military assault troops into Virginia with presidential orders to assault and capture the Confederate railroad junction at Manassas Junction Station, confiscate Confederate locomotives, rail-cars and the railroads from Manassas to Richmond City, Virginia, the new Capital of the Confederate States of America, with presidential orders to surround Richmond City and capture or kill all Confederate politicians or government workers. The Confederate militia troops stopped Lincolns “civil war” attempt by defeating Lincoln and Scott’s Union Army at the Battle of Bull Creek, in Virginia. This ladies and gentlemen, was the “civil war” Lincoln promised in his veiled threat, during his first presidential i inauguration, to force Southern agriculture states back into the Union and back onto the Union Treasury rolls. Why would the Confederacy, already a viable and peaceful nation of agriculture industries need to assault the Union government and replace their government in Washington City with their own Confederate Government? They wouldn’t and didn’t! In fact the decision the Confederate politicians and their President made, to not fight an offensive war, but to fight a ‘defensive war’ would eventually cost the south the War when it ran out of fighting age men while the Union still had several million eligible young men, and the Union had all of the manufactures needed to supply Union forces with arms, supplies, transportation, ships, etc. The Confederacy’s fate was decided at the ‘Battle of Bull Creek’ even before Lincoln’s Tariff War began.

    As far as the Fort Sumter and Fort Pickens incidents go they were covert war activities by Lincoln and Scott to establish Union military staging location to support Scott and Lincoln’s ‘Anaconda Assault Plan’ on the Southern agriculture states: From Ft. Sumter the Union military would assault and march across the northern agriculture states to the Mississippi River; while another Union military force would launch it’s assault from Ft. Pickens, in Florida, up the Mississippi River to link up with the Ft. Sumter Union military forces. The plan then called for assaulting one agriculture state at the time to enslave their residents and slaves so they could be forced at gunpoint to produce agriculture products to raise funds to build the industrializing Northeast’s manufacturing infrastructure to, as was said numerous times, “to control world commerce from the Northeast United States”…

    There’s more! So if you are interested in True American History taken form period documents get a copy of “THE TRUTH OF THE WAR CONSPIRACY OF 1861” by Huger Williams Johnstone ,who was at Ft. Pickens when Union military ships assault forces captured and held Ft. Pickens…
