Why the Left Has to Lie About American History

AMAC Exclusive by Scott Centorino

American

As the left vainly tries to deceive Americans into accepting the toxic reign of identity politics, they are forced time and again to contort American history and falsify heroic stories from our past because a truthful telling would reveal the mendacity of their narrative and the bankruptcy of their agenda. The forgotten tales of two Americans—both named James—are the perfect reminder of why.

 Born in the 18th century, James Forten worked odd jobs along Philadelphia’s waterfront to support his mother and sister after his father died. By 1781, he was fifteen and old enough to volunteer to join the Continental Navy.  

 In his first taste of combat, he demonstrated his physical courage. But it took getting captured to demonstrate his moral courage. 

 A British warship, the Amphion, captured his ship’s crew off the coast of Virginia. The British captain quickly sensed his intelligence and made Forten a generous offer. 

 In exchange for freeing Forten from life as a prisoner of war, Forten would serve the British captain at his country estate in England.

 Forten didn’t hesitate. He turned it down. 

He told the British captain, “I have been taken prisoner for the liberties of my country and never will prove a traitor to her interest.” Instead of a comfortable life tutoring the captain’s sons, Forten re-joined his crewmates in a prison ship, waiting for freedom for himself and his country. 

 James Forten didn’t want comfort. He wanted to serve his nation.

 Two centuries later, in 1961, Jim Zwerg joined his Fisk University classmate, John Lewis, to participate in bus trips through the Deep South to fight segregation. 

 These ‘freedom riders’ challenged the real Jim Crow, not what progressive activists today label as Jim Crow with shameful nonchalance. In a time of segregated drinking foundations, targeted fire hoses, and brutal killings, the real Jim Crow meant real risk. 

Jim Zwerg accepted that risk gladly. He later said that “my faith was never so strong as during that time. I knew I was doing what I should be doing.” 

When Zwerg’s Greyhound bus pulled into Montgomery, Alabama, the bus station appeared empty. Then the ambush came. From his window on the bus, Zwerg could see young white men outside holding baseball bats and chains. 

The police had left. Their protection had abandoned the area. 

But Zwerg stood up from his seat anyway, walked down the aisle, and got off the bus. 

The crowd did what it came to do. It smashed Zwerg’s face with his suitcase, pinned his head down, and methodically knocked teeth out of his mouth. He only regained consciousness two days later. Newspapers published pictures of his bruised face and shocked the nation. 

James Forten and Jim Zwerg shared courage, a sense of purpose, and a love for the promise of America. 

But these attributes have seeded the American experience for centuries. What makes their stories so special, aside from their common name and age? 

You might have guessed that James Forten and Jim Zwerg did not have race in common. One was white. One was black. 

But it might surprise you to learn that James Forten, the Revolutionary War sailor, was black and Jim Zwerg, the civil rights activist, was white.   

For each, their race made them singular targets in their time. 

Every time James Forten sailed into a southern port, he risked seizure for chained slavery. Forten’s acceptance of that risk for the sake of the American cause as it existed then would befuddle the woke mob today, addicted as they are too crude and distorted history, as exemplified by the 1619 Project. 

Jim Zwerg, on the other hand, knew the mob in Montgomery would treat him more harshly than his fellow passengers. 

 The stories of these two brave men do not conform to the identity politics narrative that has taken over our culture. 

 Remembering these tales—and others like them—can help bring our culture closer to Martin Luther King’s ideal, in which every individual is treated as a unique person with dignity and a soul that transcends their ethnic or racial identity.  

 If the antidote for tribalism is individualism, individuals like James Forten and Jim Zwerg show us the way.

Christian conservatives and uneducated white Americans are dragging us into some holy, nativist sh*t. Their fear of this ‘ungodly’ path our nation has embarked on (the path of pro choice, LGBTQ+, anti-patriarchal, LOVE AND FREEDOM FROM OPPRESSIVE AND ARCHAIC PATTERNS OF THINKING) has forged an alliance with a fear of multiculturalism. This alliance called FEAR OF CHANGE will allow any lie that will stymie the efforts of forward thinkers.

Creationist. Nativist. Neanderthal. Come on. We’re better than that.

The ‘mainstream’ media’s crime is omission. Refusing to report on things which they fear will inflame anti-immigrant or anti-black sentiment. They omit stories which they deem uncomfortable.

The right wing media’s crime is broadcasting utter BS. Conspiracy theorists. Creationists. Fear mongers. People who are TERRIFIED by the looming post-Christian, non-white centred USA which we’ll soon inhabit.

PLUMMETING numbers of Christians.

INCREASING literacy and education levels.

A rapidly DIVERSIFYING, mixed race culture.

An increasing awareness that the only way Republicans can win is by suppressing the vote.

Scared much white Christian America?

Interesting stories, but I think the author could have done a much better job addressing the concept of the article. The Democrats (the left) MUST lie about history for 2 reasons. 1) Their history is a disaster and shows their true colors. 2) If people actually knew the history of the Democrat party, nobody would vote for them.

  • The Democrat party fought to keep blacks in slavery. Republicans fought to free them.
  • The KKK was created by the Democrat party as their enforcement wing (think Nazi brown shirts) to keep blacks “in their place”.
  • Planned Parenthood was created by a leftist Democrat as a means to control the black population. And you might notice that most PP locations just happen to be in heavy black population centers.
  • Black so called “Leaders” (leftists) such as Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton, et al made millions keeping racism alive and teaching blacks that they are victims and that they are “owed” instead of teaching them how to make their lives better.
  • Democrats support laws, only when said laws advance their political ends.
  • Democrats will say anything it takes to advance their political power. Who can forget the Harry Reid interview where he admitted his comment that a republican politician “not paying any taxes” was a lie, but followed it with the comment (and a smile) and “they lost didn’t they”.
  • Democrats will fabricate evidence to destroy their political enemies. Just look a the Trump impeachments and the fabricated Steele Dossier (funded/created by the Democrats)
  • Democrats have weaponized government agencies against their political enemies and the American people. Under Obama, the IRS would not allow conservative 401Cs and the Justice Department ignoring admitted, blatant felonies by the likes of Hillary, Hunter (and probably the entire Biden family), and FBI officials. But in the meanwhile, digging into the lives of conservatives in search of something, anything wrong. And lest we forget the current political prisoners. People who were at the Jan 6 protest currently being held in prison for months with no charges yet filed.
  • Racism has been reborn by the current Democrats. It is an instrument to help them gain/retain power and destroy their political enemies. Before Obama’s was elected, polls showed that 83% of Americans believed that race relations in America were good and had come along ways to making America more focused on who you are and not what color your skin is. But Obama, the Democrats, and the race baiters would have non of that. Following the Marxist playbook, the Democrats have systematically divided this country along race and gender lines.

Throw in censorship, cancel culture, and critical race theory and this list could go on for pages.

Bottom line, if everyone actually understood the history of, and what the Democrat party is actually about, nobody with a brain who loved this country would ever vote for them. THAT is why the Democrats must change history.

I don’t understand the supposed lie. African Americans have made much progress, but we not at the point where people are just judged by the content of their character. There is hard evidence of discrimination in the workplace, loans, housing and in many facets of life. While great progress has been made, we have far to go. Why is talking about racism and seeking to do better a problem?

It’s really a value proposition. For instance – 

All of those Ivy League schools? All they need to do is rid themselves of all the moronic rich kid legacies. 

Then, to fill those openings – venture into our inner cities. And, once they’ve gone gangsta, they haven’t yet gone far enough. 

Really tap into the leaders of these communities. Bring those good folks into their schools, and – obviously – give them enough money to bring in a few of their crew, to keep it legit. Ivy League is in desperate need of street cred.  

Now, obviously, fire all of the white professors. They’ve had their time. And they understand and appreciate it. Either that, or they’re hypocrites? Certainly not?

Finally, we can begin to establish values that are more appealing to inner city youth. 

We currently offer masters and doctorates in the humanities – 

Replace those worthless degrees with masters and doctorates in twerking. 

I certainly enjoy twerking much more than I enjoy listening to some moron with a doctorate tossing out inane theories that are only possibly of any interest to other morons in the same field. WHO CARES!!??!!

And rapping? That’s a much more challenging field of study. The rhythm and rhyme – and not even touching on the beat.

But, oh well –

No chance we’ll ever convince the racist white folks who run our Ivy League schools to go along with any new ideas. 

No, they’re too busy damning everyone else for being ignorant racists. 

So, really – if we can’t establish common values – then… how can we ever arrive at a solution?

“Why is talking about racism and seeking to do better a problem?”

Neither one is a problem if done honestly and with noble intentions. The left seeks to keep blacks on the democrat plantation by pretending that every republican is a black hating racist and that democrats will rescue blacks from slavery. Or to put it another way, the left doesn’t give a damn about the plight of blacks, but only uses them in their quest for absolute control over our lives.

It isn’t a problem to talk about racism and attempting to do better, it is that much talk about racism is often racist comments. It is important that progress is recognized and appreciated, not ignored. We have come a long way since the days when slavery was legal in America, and is an issue that takes time to resolve. There are still blacks (BLM) who won’t recognize any progress, and some like Al Sharpen, Jesse Jackson, and others who make their living promoting racism. Yes, there is still a long way to go. You said, “African Americans have made much progress, but…”. When someone makes a statement followed by the word BUT, that is saying “forget what I just said”.

There are many avenues of redress for blacks or other minorities who feel they have been discriminated against in the workplace, housing , loans or any other such facets of life. And there are many lawyers chomping at the bit to take cases like that. I know because I used to work in that field. There are some real problems in some black communities that do need solving. Primarily poor education, broken homes and this culture that seems to revere gangs and violence. Democratic politicians have led many cities with those problems for decades and they’ve just gotten worse. I don’t know the answer to the dilemma. A return of God, charter schools, vouchers for school choice might be a start.

Why Boomers Must Lie About… Absolutely Everything

There, fixed it for you?

I do understand that you Mature Americans refuse to own up – preferring to deflect criticism –

“Look! Over there! No, not us! Those ones over there! They did it!” 

Bush, McCain, Romney – your faux Conservative Boomer Squad, now all fervently preaching the gospel of the very Far Left. How incredibly bizarre… 

But… will the Boomers finally cede even an ounce of their absolute power in 2024?

Seriously doubt it. My guess is we’ll just see the Trump v Hillary rematch? ;) Up there, fighting it out in their wheelchairs, with the breathing tubes? 

Then, Putin hears he has the terminal illness – and… 

He’s put up with enough of the disrespect! So… 

Ka-BOOMER!

America responds. Boomers nuke the world. The End. 

Thank you, Mature Americans! It’s been lovely serving your every possible whim and fancy.

And yes, we know –

It wasn’t you! It was that Boomer over there, two houses up on the left… no, not on the right! And definitely not you, personally. Understood.

Heck, you probably can’t even retire and offer someone younger a shot at advancement –

So please – stop sacrificing so much of yourselves already, on account of us younger folks? ;) 

You just give and give, far too much of yourselves. Thank you!

Hate is most definitely the wrong word. And hardly anyone younger is in any position to pity any of you?

I’m not judging individuals. I have tons of Boomer friends and relatives. Who doesn’t? Your generation is SO MASSIVE!!! ;)

National Debt in 1992 – $4,065 Billion
National Debt in 2020 (End of Q2, BEFORE first round of Stimulus) – $26,477 Billion

And that’s just a very SMALL sample of the HUGE MESS that Boomers are quite happily leaving for future generations to clean up?

The Far Left now outright owns all of academia, the media, and the vast majority of our corporations.

How are we to possibly reverse that? What – are we to take up arms? ;)

You’d have us all killed for disrupting your retirement. The last folks who dared question you are still locked up in solitary confinement there in DC. And their Boomer hero, Trump? Hasn’t lifted a finger, hasn’t lent a dime to their defense. In typical Boomer fashion.

My problem is that the Boomers apparently have no shame. Nothing is their fault. They didn’t do it. Again – it’s those other Boomers, up the street, two houses over.

Hey, if you even wished to pay down the debt you created, even back to the original $4 Trillion? No? Cut into those Boomer retirement funds? Not a chance! ;)

Whose responsibility is it then? Who exactly should own up to this mess? Which individuals should we be targeting? Who should we demand at least BEGIN reversing the destruction that Boomers have wrought on our country?

But… no shame in that Boomer game. Not your problem, right? Absolutely unbelievable…

Following his umpteenth non-bankruptcy, he spent 14 years on NBC Reality TV as America’s Ultimate Boomer Business Tycoon? Then, after that, the Far Left granted him BILLIONS in free promotion throughout 2016, on Hillary’s marching orders.

So PLEASE – stop sacrificing so much of yourselves on account of us younger folks? ;) It’s too much, really.

Very sorry – putting myself back in lockdown. Before COVID kills me :(

Oh, it can only kill YOU? And I’d just maybe catch a bad case of the flu? Then I’d build up a natural immunity?

Oh, so you’re just gonna quarantine YOURSELVES, right?

Racism is more the blacks trying to get a free ride. They abandon their kids until they are killed for being thugs and then they want reparations when they couldn’t care less about them until they see free money!!! Over 50% of black men marry white women-abandoning the black women. These black men will tell the white woman you won’t go out with me because I’m black-claiming racist lie. The white woman caves in despite her intuition that the guys a thug. Young black males HEROES are older black men who screw as many women as possible. 13% of America’s population is black yet 52% of murders in America are done by this 13%. The real problem isn’t guns it’s the black male for the most part. This is the truth about America, not that it’s the white male who is being wicked.

The Baby Boomers have absolutely destroyed this country. 

Liberal or conservative, the COVID lockdowns perfectly illustrate how their generation has responded to EVERY crisis they’ve ever created.

ME FIRST!!!! 

Everyone younger? Other than those who were already ill, COVID would have just been a bad case of the flu. And the rest of us? We would have then just built up a natural immunity to the virus. 

But instead? They lock down the entire world to save themselves.

Rather than cede their power by simply quarantining themselves?

NO! Everyone must suffer. BOOMERS FIRST!!!! 

And – American History? The Boomers, the most intellectual, most advanced generation ever? They’ve pretty much rewritten every book.

We’ve lost our education system, our churches, our morality – and the government has just grown by leaps and bounds. 

As for the absolutely INSANE National Debt they’ve created? Even prior to the lockdown? 

Well… their kids can pay for it. What – expect THEM to suffer for the horrible choices they continue to make? Not a chance. 

Accept ANY responsibility whatsoever? Nah… we’ll just whine about what we’ve done. 

It was THEM! The OTHER BOOMERS! OVER THERE! This is all THEIR FAULT!!!

But hey –

Boomers will likely be one of the last generations to ever experience freedom. They’ve used it up for all it’s worth, and then some!

As for the rest of us? We’re absolutely doomed.

Pretty much absolutely no way we can recover from the Boomer’s Free-For-Us. No, NOT for All. Just for them.  

You “Mature Americans” should be absolutely ashamed of yourself. But… instead? 

HA! Good luck cleaning up our mess!

National Debt in 1992 – $4,065 Billion
National Debt in 2020 (End of Q2, BEFORE first round of Stimulus) – $26,477 Billion

Again, that’s prior to the “Save Us Boomers” COVID lockdowns. Or are you just “fantasizing” that younger people were at terrible risk of dying from COVID? That the global lockdowns weren’t ONLY about saving yourselves, retaining your absolute power?

But, again, as usual – no shame in the Boomer game. And you’re nowhere NEAR finished destroying this country.

My guess is you’ll be nuking the world soon enough? ‘Cuz hey – can’t just hand Boomers nuclear weapons and expect them NOT to blow **** up, amiright?

But once the majority of you start dying off in droves? I’m sure that’ll be the end of all of us.

Hey – again, as you’ve perfectly repeatedly illustrated with your continuous bailouts and lockdowns –

If Boomers can’t enjoy it? Nobody can.

NUKE THE WORLD!!!!

Rather than let us think you are a fool, you have posted your stupidity here and removed all doubt. Go actually live for a few years as a responsible adult and then come back here and display some wisdom. You may be educated, but you aren’t smart.

The left lies about everything; if they did not tell a lie, they would have nothing to say. Awful and gullible people; destroying their own country. Scary…

There will never be a reason important enough for people who are paid enormous sums of money to do their very best to make America the greatest country on Earth to lie about a damned thing. Only cowards and low-lifes find it necessary to degrade themselves further by trying to change facts to further their causes, no matter how base they are. Our history is ours, but I worry that when our generation is gone, so will it be. Libturd schools refuse to teach American History, American Gov’t, and decent English anymore, and common core just about undid everything kids had been learning.
The deepest and greatest shame goes to any party who serves satan.

Well… y’all can fuss about whatever ya want –
But, as a soldier in the Confederacy, I’m putting my life on the line so the few rich folks who run the plantation, who own pretty much all the slaves –
I’m out here fightin’ so’s they can keep them slaves!
Same as you today!
Just imagine – if’n the North was threatenin’ to gather up all them Rolls Royce –
Well, you know you’d risk your life for his right to keep that Rolls Royce! Dang Yankees!
Anywise, after I’m dead –
Well then I’ll leave it up to them intellectuals what to rewrite history –
Y’know, wherein I’m out here riskin’ my life –
Just so them plantation owners can keep them slaves!
And the good folks up north?
They riskin’ their lives just to free the slaves! That’s how much they care!
It’s jes’ the intellectual HONEST TRUTH – that’s what it is!
An’ don’t you dare to question it, ya dang racist!
And the State of Mississippi? After the woke corporations done warned Mississippi for the last time –
Turns out – some 70% of the population just miraculously voted to replace that symbol of the evil Confederacy! They sure did! It’s the HONEST TRUTH!
What? Ain’t nobody questionin’ it! Heck no – lest everyone know they’s a hateful racist.
Just like me. I mean – kin you even IMAGINE the SHAME I must feel? Out here fightin’ the good Yankees who are jes’ out here fightin’ to FREE THE SLAVES?
Ain’t it the HONEST TRUTH?

We all buy into endless lies as our government and our national debt only continue their unlimited “growth”, forever spiraling out of control.
Faux conservatives have forever knowingly ceded the media, academia, and corporate control to the very far left. So that they and their children would continue to be invited to all of the most exclusive garden parties in DC.
Bush, Romney, McCain – all of them, it surprises us to find out – are just darlings of the very far left.
My guess is that it’s far too late for any actual true conservatives to finally wake up (become woke) to this nonsense?
And how would the damage be undone? Professors are all tenured, and have fully indoctrinated anyone they ALLOW to gain a PhD. So… how would we ever replace any of them?
And who would serve in the media? Given all of our corporations have become “woke”, who would create media outlets to lose money, to then hire conservative journalists? Put feet on the ground?
Ah well… I guess it’s best to just whine and moan about it?
We obviously can’t trust the Republican Party to actually do anything about any of it. Again, as it turns out, our so-called leaders all turn out to be closeted members of the very Far Left.
So, before you cry to your friends about how it’s – it’s JUST NOT FAIR – what has happened to our country? Possibly a tad bit of introspection? As to how all of this came about?
No tenure and term limits might be a start?
But… that’s never ever gonna happen ;) Those who hold all of the power will never cede an ounce of that power. Why would they?
So let us all join together here today and… whine some more? ;) It just ain’t fair!

It’s not fair to say that all in our government – legislature – are doing nothing. The problem is that there aren’t enough of those who are trying to get it done. All conservatives need to back those few and get rid of the rest. Even the real democrats need to join in, not those socialists that say they’re democrats.

You lot are insane. So desperate against the unstoppable (increasing education levels, secularisation, inclusivity, LGBTQ+, wealth redistribution) that you’re invoking a military uprising to take back ‘your’ country.

If a force of alt-right loonies took up arms to overthrow a democratic government and ‘restore the constitution’ history would never forgive them.
