This is a 1860's vintage picture of a slave auction shop.

I continue to watch on TV, day and night, over and over, everything about the Kennedy’s. I have learned so many things about their history, things I realize all of you knew of long ago. Sure, I knew of Teddy Kennedy, but I never realized his greatness; of all the good things he accomplished for so many people.

There is no greater coward on this earth than those worthless maggots who have crawled out of the woodwork to assassinate some of our past presidents, political figures, and Martin Luther King Jr. I ask myself why these cold blooded parasites weren’t aborted, (I'm against abortion, yet feel the government has no right to dictate what a woman should do with her own body, but in they're cases, I would have been all for it) or died at birth, or involved in a fatal accident as youths, before they were ever able to accomplish their evil deeds by commit the murders or attempted murders of so many great men.

What a beautiful and very extraordinary family the Kennedy’s were.

There is something I watched as I continued to learn of this exceptional family, and that was a video where African American’s were attacked viciously as they demonstrated in a peaceful manner way back in the 60's. I looked for it in Youtube, but didn’t find it, but I did find one that enraged and sickened me. And to think that those who committed these heinous and cowardly acts against Blacks, called themselves Christians. In this video, I watched them with their own children, smiling proudly towards the camera, as if they had accomplished some heroic act. I cannot even begin to fathom how these people, who I assume to be humans, could have committed such atrocities towards other human-beings.

I knew things like this happened, but NOW the absolute REALITY of this shameful part of American history hit me like a ton of bricks. How is it possible that our government allowed those inhumane things to happen back then?

These horrible people couldn't have been followers of the teachings of Jesus Christ the Holy Bible, but instead, were influenced by following the teachings of Anton LaVey in his satanic bible.

From 1882 - 1998, 4743 murders by lynching occurred in the United States of America - 3446 were African-American

I despise those, and present day racists who DARE to call themselves Christians.

Southern trees bear a strange fruit,
Blood on the leaves and blood at the root,
Black body swinging in the Southern breeze,
Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees.

Pastoral scene of the gallant South,
The bulging eyes and the twisted mouth,
Scent of magnolia sweet and fresh,
And the sudden smell of burning flesh!

Here is a fruit for the crows to pluck,
For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck,
For the sun to rot, for a tree to drop,
Here is a strange and bitter crop.

If only the Chappa incident hadn't happened, he would have been the next president. He's almost as handsome as my beloved Obama!

You do know that Christians are responsible for a huge number of murders, assassination, and other attrocities, right?

Just read history and such things will not be a surprised.

in the name of religion...
I know that all the bloodshed that's been spilt since just about the beginning of time, and continues to this day, has in the name of religion.

This is one of those times in history where I find it inexcusable, because bloodshed was not only committed in the name of religion, but also because of race. What makes it all the more horrific is that those shameful and barbaric acts were committed against fellow Americans by fellow Americans.

I shall agree that there were a lot of bad things that did happen in the south where he mixing of the races were involved and one of the mosr scurrilous was the KuKluxKlan, even though there were some good things they were involved in in the 1800's Specifically running the "carpet baggers" back up north when they came down south to try and push their own brand of morality on us. One must remember that the first blacks that were brought into the young United States were brought into the Northern States to act as house slaves, cooks, maids and sitters for the children the stable boys to take care of the animals. It would take a few years before "slaves" were brought south to work the plantations. AND Dont believe half of what you read in Uncle Toms Cabin, Harriet Beecher Stowe never set foot in the south until after the war and wrote her book from stories that she had heard. Was slavery bad? YES IT WAS and I am a Son of the Confederacy. I have relatives who foutht in the war of northern aggression. There was nothing "Civil" about it. Noone can walk the grounds at gettysburg and not feel the spirits of Brothers or Sons and Fathers who fought against each other and died for what they believed in. Regardless what some may thing it was NOT about slavery, it was about States Rights. The same thing we are up in arms about right now.

I kinda figured you would be up in arms also about the Kennedy's. Please keep in mind that every family has bad eggs. I have nothing but GOOD to say about John and Bobby. Both were loyal Americans who served their country loyally in the military and then as servants of the people. Even the Kennedy Women were good in that withjout them we would not have wonderful things like the Special Olympics. The fact that both were plugging Marilyn Monroe does not fase me in the least.
Their father you must know made his millions in running illeagle booze between Canida and the US. He was a BootLegger, and one of the best. Teddy when he grew up instead of becomming a fiscal conservative like his two older brothers became a bleeding heart liberal, and put shame on his name at almost every step.

This will continue on my nest post..............

Oh, Fred, yer such a hoot. Yeah, the Civil War was about States Rights; The individual State's right to keep slavery legal. Ask some of your 'black friends' about that, why doncha? lol

wrong
Carpet-baggers were unscrupulous capitalistic opportunists who could have given a shit about passing morality to anyone. They cared about money and power. The Knights were not battling anyone's forced morality unless you're meaning the Klan didn't want anyone telling them they couldn't treat human beings as merchandise. They burned the businesses of carpetbaggers that hired and paid freedmen to work, plus there was also the occasional lynching of them, as well. Was those the good things you were referring to?

Also, the "northern" states you speak of, the ones who "brought" the slaves in? You're speaking of the colonies, when there was no north or south to the states. By the time the first shots were fired, slavery was rampant down the eastern seaboard, throughout the "old" south, and into the deep south. Saying the northerners brought slavery to the south is akin to blaming the Beatles for rock-and-roll.

And one more error. Slaves were not necessarily brought south. Slaves in the deep south mostly filtered through the port of New Orleans, but they were also ferried in from Maryland and the Carolinas, the largest ports of entry in the old south.

Part 2
Teddy was no hero but an A#1 jerk. young people have no idea about his antics but lets look at a few.

1. He was caught cheating at Harvard when he attended it. He was expelled twice, once for cheating on a test, and once for paying a classmate to cheat for him.

2. While expelled, Kennedy enlisted in the Army, but mistakenly signed up for four years instead of two. His Father, Joseph P. Kennedy, former U.S. Ambassador to England (a step up from bootlegging liquor into the US from Canada during prohibition), pulled the necessary strings to have his enlistment shortened to two years, and to ensure that he served in Europe, not Korea, where a war was raging.

3. Kennedy was assigned to Paris, never advanced beyond the rank of Private, and returned to Harvard upon being discharged. Imagine a person of his "education" NEVER advancing past the rank of Private!

4. While attending law school at the University of Virginia, he was cited for reckless driving four times, including once when he was clocked driving 90 miles per hour in a residential neighborhood with his headlights off after dark.. Yet his Virginia driver's license was never revoked.

5. In 1964, he was seriously injured in a plane crash and hospitalized for several months. Test results done by the hospital at the time he was admitted had shown he was legally intoxicated. The results of those tests remained a "state secret" until in the 1980's when the report was unsealed.

6. On July 19, 1969, Kennedy attended a party on Chappaquiddick Island in Massachusetts . At about 11:00 PM, he borrowed his chauffeur's keys to his Oldsmobile limousine and offered to give a ride home to Mary Jo Kopechne, a campaign worker. Leaving the island via an unlit bridge with no guard rail, Kennedy steered the car off the bridge, flipped, and into Poucha Pond.

7. He swam to shore and walked back to the party passing several houses and a fire station. Two friends then returned with him to the scene of the accident. According to their later testimony, they told him what he already knew - that he was required by law to immediately report the accident to the authorities. Instead Kennedy made his way to his hotel, called his lawyer, and went to sleep. Kennedy called the police the next morning and by then the wreck had already been discovered. Before dying Kopechne had scratched at the upholstered floor above her head in the upside-down car.
The Kennedy family began "calling in favors", ensuring that any inquiry would be contained. Her corpse was whisked out-of-state to her family before an autopsy could be conducted. Further details are uncertain, but after the accident Kennedy says he repeatedly dove under the water trying to rescue Kopechne and he didn't call police because he was in a state of shock. It is widely assumed Kennedy was
drunk, and he held off calling police in hopes that his family could fix the problem overnight. Since the accident Kennedy's "political enemies" have referred to him as the distinguished Senator from Chappaquiddick. He pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of an accident, and was given a SUSPENDED SENTENCE OF TWO MONTHS. There was later an effort to have her body exhumed and autopsied, but her family successfully fought against this in court, and Kennedy's family paid their attorney's bills...... a "token of friendship"?

8. Kennedy has held his Senate seat for more than forty years, but considering his longevity, his accomplishments seem scant. In his very first Senate roll he was the floor manager for the bill that turned U.S. immigration policy upside down and opened the floodgate for immigrants from third world countries..

9. Since that time, he has been the prime instigator and author of every expansion of an increase in immigration up to and including the latest attempt to grant amnesty to illegal aliens.

10. He is known around Washington as a public drunk, loud, boisterous, and very disrespectful to ladies. JERK is a better description than "great American"... "A blonde in every pond" is his motto.

The great comedianne Moms Mabley did a skit yeras ago where she said "If you can't say something good about the dead, then dont say it... He's dead... GOOD!"

I'm not sure what you've read about Anton Lavey's Satanic Bible but I assure you the evil of slavery was justified by the Christian Bible.
Jeff Davis of the confederacy even said so.

" "[Slavery] was established by decree of Almighty God...it is sanctioned in the Bible, in both Testaments, from Genesis to Revelation...it has existed in all ages, has been found among the people of the highest civilization, and in nations of the highest proficiency in the arts."

Anton Lavey's church was more along the line of the hellfire Club of the 18th century. Basically, a less hypocritical version of C street that John Ensign and those other hypocrites belonged to. Debauchery and fun without the hangups of the morality police.

Anton Lavey was an avowed atheist who used his church to promote a swinging lifestyle that mocked Christianity by openly defiling the Mass rituals with orgies, etc. That might not be right and it might be offensive to us who hold those beliefs but slavery had nothing to do with them.

All those ritualistic horrors by Richard ramirez etc had nothing to do with Anton Lavey's church. And please don't regurgitate the Jayne mansfield B.S. attributed to Anton Lavey. It's crap for weak minds.

Jimmy Swaggart got caught doing what laVey did all the time. The only difference was La vey did it openly and did't apologize to anyone. Swaggart used the "satan made me do it " loophole.

perplexed and saddened ...
I've never even owned the frightening book, so I do not know one thing about what it says.

I've been giving great thought to things that were brought up about the Holy Bible in that certain LJ. As you know, I have read the Christian Bible twice in my life, and must admit that I was quite confused. I think I'll soon make a post on exactly the things that perplexed and saddened me most. It's just something one who was brought up Catholic, never dared to question for fear not only of the humans, but also God's reaction to daring to question anything about it.

I never thought for the world that my bringing up slavery, would put me in doubt of so many other things.

I will definitely express what I now feel, but I become so aggravated with myself, because it's so hard for me to express exactly what's in my soul in writing.

I wouldn't be too suprised that many come in Christ's name, i.e. claiming to be Christian.

    Matthew 24:5

    5For many will come on the basis of my name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and will mislead many.
