"Harriet Tubman? Give me a break!" . . . Please come CAPTION Brian Kilmeade!!!



Brian ("I'm still waiting for the MacArthur award." Kilmeade is saying: "There are lots of reasons to oppose replacing the image of Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill that have nothing to do with racism: Jackson was one of the original Puritan founding fathers, he was popular with his slaves, he gave his name to countless counties in our nation, and he restored lands west of the Mississippi to the American Indian, lands which are now some of the richest in the nation. . . . Besides, who ever heard of an American hero with a head-rag?"



******************************

Above CAPTION based on the following item at News Hounds with a lovely (i.e., horrific) clip:

1. I believe that Kilmeade

was born stupid and then took stupid lessons to enhance his stupidity. The 3 Stooges on the couch in the morning. And, no, I don't watch that horrid network.

5. "restored lands west of the Mississippi to the American Indian"

"which are now some of the richest in the nation"

Yep, Old Hickory just up and gave Oklahoma to the Cherokees. Only problem is the Cherokees already had land in the Southeastern U.S. not to mention a written language, a constitution and a representative form of government.. They were unceremoniously kicked off that land in the 1830s in accordance with the Indian Removal Act of 1830 signed by one President Andrew Jackson and in defiance of a SCOTUS decision against the state of Georgia which upheld the Cherokee land claims in Georgia. And oh yeah, some 20,000 Cherokee had to walk to Oklahoma - you know that area of the U.S. which is now one of the richest areas in the U.S.?


"he was popular with his slaves"

As opposed to the slaves of John C. Calhoun, I am sure. Geez, did he actually say that?

6. Isn't it funny how "NOT racist" Republicans say they are?

Over and over and over and over and over again?

This goes double when they troll Democratic blogs or FB pages.

7. Let's face it Harriet Tubman was a criminal. I think its terrible for black America to celebrate her

Think of the horrible lesson it teaches black children. If you break the law then you might get honored on money. Is that really the message we need to send those people. Its bad enough our police have to shoot them time and time again to protect us already, Imagine how many more we will have to shoot after that known criminal Harriet Tubman gets on our 20s. A lawless state is what they're promoting. They say Andrew Jackson was a bad man, but everything he did was legal at the time. Not so with Harriet Tubman, think about that. It makes her a criminal. A real criminal. If we honor a criminal we'll be sending an open message to hoods, and gangs that being a criminal is all right in this country. Maybe it is with that Obama, but that's not how we live in christian America. We don't like those hood gang values that Harriet represents. I'm not asking you to think about history, I'm asking those people to think of our most vulnerable children. They need role models and not street gang thugs on their money.

10. Warning: CAPTIONing at DU has traditionally been a creative endeavor

but we usually try to channel our subject's essence.

So, no he didn't say these things, but he would have if he thought he could get away with it, or if he was a bit less guarded, or . . .

11. The sad thing is local radio hacks

do say these things and the creep into national level discussion means it will get there eventually. It's amazing what they feel comfortable saying these days compared to 20 years ago.
