    States Rights, Slave Trading & Right Wing Hypocrisy
    "in 1787, when the Constitutional Convention met in Philadelphia, no American state except Georgia had yet reopened the African trade. Nevertheless, with the expectation of reopening the international slave trade, the delegates from the Deep South jealously guarded their right to import more slaves...the provision in Article 1, Section 9 of the Constitution, which prevented Congress from ending the trade before 1808."

    Beck and right wingers here at USMB and other places have misrepresented and lied about the 'innocent' slave trade in Colonial America up to the Us Civil War. They tried to say it was Big Government and regulation that turned the Colonial/American slave trade from being in their words 'innocent' --- into the horror people pretend to be horrified by even as they wittingly or unwittingly defend it.

    After 1800, however, Georgia and South Carolina reopened their international slave trade, and in the next eight years, these two states would introduce about 100,000 new slaves from Africa.

    It's time for a history lesson minus the dry drunkard Beck and his angry white followers who would defend the slave trade as a way to attack big government.

    The Federal government prolonged slavery by ruling that slave property in slave states was slave property in free states.

    A white, Republican President ended slavery. A white, male Supreme court overturned Plessy.

    The US Constitution started it all. Read up on things. A white Liberal Republican. White northerners and southerners all held their puke back as they fought southern demands for slaves being counted, so they compromised. 3/5 of slaves counted for representation. How ironic is that?:lol::lol:

    slave holders asking to get federal representation for slaves. :lol:

    Revere, if you desire to engage in misrepresentation without acknowledging truth, you will remain a lowly troll with little impact

    Revere is a typical Right Wing Lunatic @ USMB ::: incapable of fully grasping and posting truths.

    Funny thing though, it was liberal democrats who fought for their right to own people as slaves, or as private property.

    Just like now we have to fight the liberal democrats.

    I am a slave to liberal democrats who steal more and more of my hard work to make themselves rich.

    And it was conservative Republicans who wanted to keep all black people out of the west to preserve the area for free white people, and who wanted to deport all free black people back to Africa or Central America. Only genuine abolitionists had the moral high ground during this era, not Republicans or Democrats.

    It was not conservatives nor republicans.

    Can you say Senator Byrd, liberal democrat and KKK leader.

    Maybe you should be specific instead of making general statements. Slavery deserves critical analysis, general statements are ugly and out of context, at best.

    Maybe you should be specific rather than making general partisan statements. Abraham Lincoln was one of the leading proponents of colonization, so yes it's safe to say that it was a Republican plan.
