Forbidden Truths Today
Source: American Dissident Voices, Program of 2/20/93
Welcome to American Dissident Voices. I’m Kevin Alfred Strom. You know, what passes for history these days in the controlled media and in the public schools is becoming more and more removed from the realm of reality. The reason this is happening is because the truth about our founding fathers and about the history of America makes the present-day political establishment very uncomfortable.
So our media masters and the lying politicians who serve them must hide the truth about our history or be exposed for the traitors and fakers that most of them are.
One area where truth is notably absent is in so-called Black History. Our schoolchildren are being taught incredible whoppers, such as the claim that Hannibal and Cleopatra and Beethoven were Black, that the ancient Egyptians were Black, that a Black co-discovered the North Pole with Admiral Peary, and that a Black man was the developer of blood plasma technology.
Even more insidious, our children are being taught blatant untruths about our past, about our founding fathers and other major personalities of American history, whose words are being edited and altered to make them consonant with the Third World America that certain forces are trying to build.
Stay tuned, for you’re about to hear some forbidden truths today on American Dissident Voices.
Before I go forward with the main subject of my show, let me just take a minute and set the record straight with regard to the tall tales that too often pass for “Black history.” Some of these whoppers are a result of over-enthusiastic history-rewriters, anxious to find as many Black contributions to history as possible – scholarship be damned, mistakenly associating everything on the continent of Africa with Black people. As any high-school graduate could have told you thirty years ago before our schools had been totally corrupted, Africa north of the Sahara is and always was inhabited mainly by Caucasians of various kinds, not by Black people. Hannibal was White, as his contemporary portrait sculpture testifies. Cleopatra was of pure Greek descent. The ancient Egyptians were also undoubtedly Caucasians, though in later years there was some intermarriage with their Black slaves. As to Beethoven, that absurd allegation can be disproved by contemporary portraiture. Matthew Henson, who was Black, was Admiral Peary’s valet, and nothing more. And Charles Drew, who did have a hand in the development of the use of blood plasma, was at most 1/32 Black.
It’s interesting to note that Abraham Lincoln’s birthday falls in the month which has lately been designated by our masters as “Black History Month,” the month of February. I do not know for certain if this was a purposeful decision on the part of the change agents who created this celebration, but it would not surprise me. For it is upon the persona and career of Abraham Lincoln that they have built a great mythology justifying the current unfair and unequal system of minority favoritism that it is our misfortune to live under.
Abraham Lincoln, they say, was a great exponent of racial equality who freed the slaves, and had he lived, would have been an enthusiastic advocate of “civil rights” for Blacks as we understand that term today.
Well, ladies and gentlemen, I’m here to tell you today that nothing could be further from the truth. If Abraham Lincoln were alive today he would be attacked by the Liberal media as the most despicable bigot and racist this world has ever seen, far to the right of even David Duke. Don’t believe me? I will not ask you to believe me – I will only ask you to listen to what I am about to reveal to you from contemporary historical documents and the writings of Mr. Lincoln himself.
I offer the following facts and statements in a spirit of good will to all. My purpose is not to lionize or to criticize Abraham Lincoln. My purpose is not to use Mr. Lincoln as a mouthpiece for my or anyone else’s views. I offer this information to all who hear me, whatever their race or political viewpoint, in the spirit of objective truth only. Remember, you will be hearing Lincoln’s words, not mine.
First I will quote from the text of the Emancipation Proclamation itself:
“I, Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States, and commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy thereof, do hereby proclaim and declare that…it is my purpose upon the next meeting of Congress to again recommend…the immediate or gradual abolishment of Slavery…and that the effort to colonize persons of African descent, with their consent, upon the continent or elsewhere, with the previously obtained consent of the government existing there, will be continued; that on the first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty three, all persons held as slaves within any State, or any designated part of a State, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States, shall be then, thenceforward and forever free….”
Even the Emancipation Proclamation itself makes it clear that Lincoln’s policy was to give the slaves their freedom, yes – but also to grant them the real freedom of a life in their own country in Africa; thus the reference to “colonize persons of African descent…upon the continent [of Africa]….”
Shortly after reading the Proclamation to his cabinet, President Lincoln met with a group of prominent free Blacks in the White House. The purpose of the meeting: to enter into a general program which would solve the race problem through a peaceful and voluntary separation of the races.
Lincoln’s viewpoint that separation of the races was the best solution to the problems of slavery and racial conflict was not a hastily-adopted political position. He had considered the problem for many years, and had spoken and written often on behalf of freedom and African colonization. For example, he stated in one of the famous Lincoln-Douglas debates:
“I will say, then, that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races – that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of Negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to inter-marry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality.”
Lincoln further stated in the Lincoln-Douglas debates, specifically on the subject of repatriation of those of African descent to Africa:
“Such separation, if effected at all, must be effected by colonization… …what colonization most needs is a hearty will… Let us be brought to believe that it is morally right, and at the same time favorable to, or at least not against, our interests to transfer the African to his native clime, and we shall find a way to do it, however great the task may be.”
Some of the vendors of fake history have made the claim, when confronted with these unimpeachable quotations from President Lincoln, that he changed his mind on the subject in the years after he issued the Emancipation Proclamation. But according to the autobiography of Union General Benjamin F. Butler, Abraham Lincoln made the following statement in a conversation with Butler in early April 1865, less than two weeks before his assassination on April 15th:
“But what shall we do with the negroes after they are free? I can hardly believe that the South and the North can live in peace, unless we can get rid of the negroes. …You have been a staunch friend of the [Black] race from the time you first advised me to enlist them at New Orleans. You have had a good deal of experience in moving bodies of men by water, – your movement up the James was a magnificent one. Now, we shall have use for our very large navy; what, then, are our difficulties in sending all the blacks away? …I fear a race war…. I wish you would carefully examine the question and give me your views upon it and go into the figures, as you did before in some degree, so as to show whether the negroes can be exported.”
Now, remember, friends, these are not my words. These are the words of President Abraham Lincoln. It is a sad day in America when a man can be denied his freedom of speech, as sometimes happens these days, or lose his job, because he expresses essentially the same viewpoint that President Lincoln espoused.
Now President Lincoln is not the only American historical figure whose views have been misrepresented by the media, the government, and the academy. Thomas Jefferson has sadly suffered the same fate of having his words edited to “fit in” with currently fashionable “politically correct” ideology.
In Washington, DC; not too far from the shores of the Potomac River, and in the opposite direction, not too far from the “adult bookstores,” burned-out and boarded-up buildings, hulks of stripped and abandoned cars, and the corpses of the victims of the daily gang murders in that city; stands one of the most beautiful buildings on this planet. I am speaking of that awe-inspiring rotunda of classic Greek proportions, the Jefferson Memorial. On the inside walls of the rotunda are engraved in the massive blocks of marble many of Jefferson’s more famous quotations, including his “I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.” Well, it is just such a tyranny that we labor under today, and it is my dolorous duty to inform you that, even in the Jefferson Memorial itself, his words have been edited to deceive the reader. On one of these marble panels are carved the following words:
“Nothing is more certainly written in the book of fate than that these people [the Blacks] are to be free. [period!]” Now let me read you the full quotation of that sentence of Thomas Jefferson’s, from which the preceding was only a misleading extract.
This is from Thomas Jefferson’s autobiography, first published by his grandson, Thomas Jefferson Randolph in 1829 and again published by special Act of Congress in 1853. The original manuscript is in the National Archives in Washington, DC, if they haven’t used it to wrap crack cocaine in yet. I quote from page 51, dated January 6, 1821:
“Nothing is more certainly written in the book of fate than that these people are to be free; [semicolon!] nor is it less certain that the two races, equally free, cannot live in the same government. Nature, habit, opinion have drawn indelible lines of distinction between them. It is still in our power to direct the process of emancipation and deportation, peaceably, and in such slow degree, as that the evil will wear off insensibly, and their place be …filled up by free White laborers. If, on the contrary, it is left to force itself on, human nature must shudder at the prospect held up.” I’ll give you the deliberately misquoted first sentence of that passage again:
“Nothing is more certainly written in the book of fate than that these people are to be free; nor is it less certain that the two races, equally free, cannot live in the same government.”
In his book, Notes on the State of Virginia, volume 8, page 380, Jefferson stated:
“…they [the Blacks] should continue with their parents to a certain age, then to be brought up, at the public expense, to tillage, arts, or sciences, according to their geniuses, till the females should be eighteen and the males twenty-one years of age, when they should be colonized to such place as the circumstances of the time should render most proper… …to declare them a free and independent people, and to extend to them our alliance and protection, till they have acquired strength; and to send vessels, at the same time, to other parts of the world for an equal number of white inhabitants, to induce them to migrate hither….”
That quote can also be found in the well-known Jefferson Cyclopedia, first published by Funk and Wagnalls in 1900 and still available in many libraries, under entry 7973, “Slaves, Emancipation of.”
Both Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln were advocates of a peaceful separation of the races as solution to the multiple problems and perennial ill-will that characterize any attempt at a multiracial society. But not only were they advocates on a personal level, they were active members of an organization dedicated to that same purpose, called the American Colonization Society, founded in 1817 in Washington, DC. Among its distinguished members were Francis Scott Key, John Randolph, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, Charles Fenton Mercer, John Marshall, Andrew Jackson, Daniel Webster, Henry Clay, and Abraham Lincoln.
It was the American Colonization Society which arranged for the purchase of land in Africa, which would eventually form the country called Liberia. This land was purchased with the intent that freed slaves would make their homes there in their own all-Black society, and these plans were actually put into effect, though never on the scale originally planned. The very name of the country, Liberia, was based on the Latin word meaning “freedom.” The capital of Liberia, Monrovia, takes its name from President James Monroe, a leading figure in the Society. And Liberia’s flag is almost identical to the Stars and Stripes, with one large white star replacing our field of stars. To this day, many of the leading families of Liberia are descended from freed slaves who migrated there during the nineteenth century.
It wasn’t only eminent White American historical figures who supported this eminently fair and sane solution to racial conflict, however. Black nationalists such as Marcus Garvey, Paul Cuffe, M. M. L. Gordon, and Bishop Henry M. Turner lent their support and leadership to the cause of separation and repatriation also. In 1935, a petition signed by over 400,000 Blacks was presented to the Franklin Roosevelt White House, stating in part:
“Given an opportunity in our ancestral Africa, the knowledge of farming and of simple farm machinery and implements, which we have acquired here would enable us to carve a frugal but decent livelihood out of the virgin soil and favorable climate of Liberia… We are a liability now, and any cost of this project, no matter how great, would still, we sincerely believe, be a sound investment for the American people… “
Though the Memorialists, as this group of Black nationalists called themselves, got no help from the Roosevelt White House, which was at that stage already planning the disastrous multiracial future of this country, they did succeed in getting the legislature of Virginia to pass a resolution calling for Federal aid to the colonization movement.
Today, we still see a division in the Black community between integrationists and nationalists. Today Louis Farrakhan is the most widely known of the nationalists, who want a separate nation, preferably in Africa, where Blacks would have their own government and a society more in tune with their natural inclinations and interests. It is the leftist and communist-associated integrationists, the followers of Martin Luther King, who are today on the wane among Blacks, and the nationalists who are riding the crest of a rising wave of separatist sentiment, especially among young Blacks. The recent idealized cinema portrayal of Malcolm X, who once said “Give us some land of our own and let us go for ourselves!,” is a part of this growing trend.
I think it is important for White people to understand that although the Black nationalists may have some bizarre historical and biological theories, and while they may call us names like “White devils” and worse, it is their position of racial separatism that offers the most direct, most reasonable, and really the only workable solution to the burgeoning race problem in this country. The race problem is so pervasive in America that it fills our newspapers from front to back with crimes, lawsuits, political battles, job disputes, and other conflicts; it fills our prisons and ruins countless lives. It absorbs the energies of our nation which could otherwise be put to productive use. It cries out for a solution. The philosophy of racial separatism is in harmony with traditional American principles and was in fact, as I have shown you, the very program espoused by the universally acknowledged giants of America’s political foundation. It cannot be attacked as “racist” by either side, since large and respected groups on both sides of the racial line see it as the only answer. The primary opposition to it comes from the controlled media and the bought politicians, who seem bound and determined to erect a multiracial social experiment over the corpse of what used to be America.
Ladies and gentlemen, I am about to offer you something very rare and very special. It is a book by Arthur J. Demarest, entitled Resettlement. It deals clearly and in detail with the issues that I have only begun to touch on in this program. Resettlement is not an anti-Black book. It is really not even a political book at all. It is a superbly researched, well-reasoned, and strictly objective attempt at a solution to racial strife and conflict. I am offering this hardback, 165-page book to every listener who contributes $8 or more for the continued broadcasting of this program. Resettlement is the work of a mature scholar, a man who has spent a lifetime studying social, political, and anthropological problems. Not content with mere analysis, he presents a solution – what he calls “the only solution that has not been tried, the only one that cannot fail.”
