Opinion from a Libertarian ViewPoint

Totalitarian Hate – LewRockwell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on April 15, 2018

Progressive dominated government education. The only truth they know is if has anything to do with white Western culture it is bad.

…First, black supremacy is the origin of Southern slavery. It was blacks and Asiatic Muslims on the African continent that enslaved and sold other blacks to the slave traders.”

Inconvenient truth. Enslavement was honed to a fine art in the Middle East of old and remains there to this day.

The unhinged cultural Marxist Left that now totally dominates nearly every university in America has been hard at work trying to stamp out the small remnant (1-2%? 5%?) of non-communist faculty in the humanities and social sciences. Their latest strategy is to organize a mob of low-I.Q. students to scream and yell, call names, and sometimes set buildings on fire and commit other acts of violence directed at a single non-communist campus speaker or professor.

A couple of weeks ago two students – a giddy-looking little girl named Allie Jacobs, a member of the Leftist student group “Student Power,” and an effeminate-looking young man named Jonathan Ray Jackson, a graduate student in “Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies,” were associated with others who placed posters all over the campus announcing the tired old Leftist sloganeering that Professor DeRosa is a “white supremacist.” “FAU Young Democratic Socialists” proudly takes “credit” for the libelous smears of Professor DeRosa.

What seems to have incited this attack on Professor DeRosa is that the Left got wind of the fact that he teaches FAU-affiliated classes in American civics (the Constitution, Declaration of Indepencence, and other founding documents, etc.) at a privately-owned maximum-security prison in Florida, funded by a grant from the Koch Foundation.  Seventy percent of the inmates there are black.  Therein lies his “Great Sin”:  He associated himself with a Koch Foundation-funded charitable program, and participated in it at a private, not a socialist, government-run prison.  A ragtag group of Leftists jerks (not at FAU) called “UnKochMyCampus” seems to be one of the organizers of this whole charade.

State Universities like FAU are lavishly funded by tax dollars from direct state government appropriations, federal and state government grants of all sorts, and millions from mostly left-wing foundations. As with all universities, whenever a single conservative or libertarian individual or foundation proposes a drop-in-the-ocean donation a campus “protest” erupts. Yale University was even forced to return a $100 million donation to the Bass family of Texas intended to be used to teach about Western Civilization at Yale, something the Yale faculty refused to consider…

In this case they took one of Professor Derosa’s statements of plain, undisputed, historical facts and got all hysterical over it. In an Abbeville Institute essay entitled “Confederate Case Law: The Rule of Law, Not Men,” he pointed out that the slave trade, like all trades, had a buyers’ side and a sellers’ side. Understanding this, he said, means that “linking . . . slavery with white supremacy is a gross oversimplification. First, black supremacy is the origin of Southern slavery. It was blacks and Asiatic Muslims on the African continent that enslaved and sold other blacks to the slave traders.”

There is no disputing this. European slave traders did not go into the interior of Africa and risk dying of malaria or being eaten by wild animals; they did business with African kings on the west coast of Africa who sold their own people – or anyone else they could enslave — into slavery.

The FAU student libelers ignored what Professor DeRosa actually said here, only broadcasting the lie that he supposedly defended “white supremacy.” They also ignored the very next sentence in the essay where Professor DeRosa wrote that “although slavery is morally reprehensible, it was legal.” He said this because the purpose of the rest of the article is to use Confederate case law to discuss how the judicial system of the Confederacy dealt with slaves who committed crimes. It is a very interesting piece of scholarship, but of course these “students” have no interest at all in scholarship…

Be seeing you
