The line in question simply means that those who fought with the British would not escape punishment even if they were hirelings or slaves. A sentiment I surely agree with.
It is certainly applicable today. The enemy are liberals and being black should not be an excuse to escape punishment.
Poor bert. Dude is a socialist wet dream. Notice the parts he left out. That tiny part about Republicans freeing the slaves and going to war to do so. Then he fucks up the next part, the 50 years where Democrats slaughtered blacks for sport. Then he ignores the Democrat party actions when they didn't want uppity blacks voting. He completely skips over the new plantations the modern Democrat party has created.

This is what happens when a fucking snowflake liberal decides to unload their safe space thoughts on the world.
... says those Who repeatedly continue to use violence to strip Americans of the right to free speech, to silence the opposition voices of those who do not support Progressive views and agendas...
Dont stop there, southern strategy is next, continue on...
When the Senate passed the measure on June 19, 1964, -- nine days after supporters mustered enough votes to end the longest filibuster in Senate history -- the margin was 73-27. Better than two-thirds of Senate Democrats supported the measure on final passage (46 yeas, 21 nays), but an even stronger 82 percent of Republicans supported it (27 yeas, 6 nays).
The primary reason that Republican support was higher than Democratic support -- even though the legislation was pushed hard by a Democratic president, Lyndon B. Johnson -- is that the opposition to the bill primarily came from Southern lawmakers. In the mid 1960s, the South was overwhelmingly Democratic -- a legacy of the Civil War and Reconstruction, when the Republican Party was the leading force against slavery and its legacy. Because of this history, the Democratic Party in the 1960s was divided between Southern Democrats, most of whom opposed civil rights legislation, and Democrats from outside the South who more often than not supported it.
This pattern showed clearly in the House vote. Northern Democrats backed the Civil Rights Act by a margin even larger than that of Republicans -- 141 for, just four against -- while Southern Democrats were strongly opposed, by a margin of 11 yeas to 92 nays.
When the Voting Rights Act hit the floor in 1965, the vote results mirrored those of the Civil Rights Act. In the House, the measure passed by a 333-85 margin, with 78 percent of Democrats backing it (221 yeas and 61 nays) and 82 percent of Republicans backing it (112 yeas to 24 nays).
In the Senate, the measure passed by a 77-19 vote, with 73 percent of Democrats and 94 percent of Republicans supporting the bill.
Fyi. Lost the link on my phone, but feel free to fact check.

LBJ quotes that are verified.
"These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference. For if we don’t move at all, then their allies will line up against us and there’ll be no way of stopping them, we’ll lose the filibuster and there’ll be no way of putting a brake on all sorts of wild legislation. It’ll be Reconstruction all over again."
Johnson, like other presidents, would often reveal his true motivations in asides that the press never picked up. During one trip, Johnson was discussing his proposed civil rights bill with two governors. Explaining why it was so important to him, he said it was simple: “I’ll have them ******* voting Democratic for two hundred years.”
“That was the reason he was pushing the bill,” said MacMillan, who was present during the conversation. “Not because he wanted equality for everyone. It was strictly a political ploy for the Democratic party. He was phony from the word go.”
MacMillan said Johnson did not care if women were in the area. “He was totally naked with his daughters, Lady Bird, and female secretaries,” he said. “He was quite well endowed in his testicles,” MacMillan said, “So everyone started calling him Bull Nuts. He found out about it. He was really upset.”
Other sources have corroborated Johnson’s predilection for casual nudity, so we don’t need to dwell on it...
Did LBJ Say 'I'll Have Those N*****s Voting Democratic for 200 Years'?
Thats the civil rights act of 1964, an important component of the roots of southern strategy. Perhaps the most significant part is Strom Thrumond switching parties. But fast-forward today and you have parallels with Trumps comments with those of Lee Atwater.
Since when do we EVER sing more than the first verse? So we should abolish the national anthem because verses that nobody has EVER heard sung on an NFL field in the history of the league can be construed as "racist" in some liberal snowflakes eyes?
And if anyone points out how absurd you are...they're automatically considered a Nazi by you? How does pointing out that you're absurd make me a Nazi? That's so mindlessly blind to reality that you've turned yourself into a joke!
