Illinois Rep. Schakowsky Says America Needs to Take Blame for Britain’s Slavery Before U.S. was Founded

Rep. Jan Schakowsky said America needs to take the blame for the slaves brought to the new world by the British.



Jan Schakowsky, the historically ignorant socialist congresswoman from Chicago, said America needs to take the blame for the slaves brought to the new world by the British in the 1600s before there even was an America.

Any school kid knows that there was no United States of America until the colonists rebelled against Great Britain and fought a war to gain their independence in 1776.

But the anti-American Schakowsky said Friday that slavery from 1619 to 1776 was America’s fault even though there was no such thing as America until the end of that period.

This ignoramus congresswoman’s comments came in response to a bill introduced by Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton who seeks to take federal funding away from any school that uses the lies in the so-called “1619 Project” that seeks to blame the U.S.A. for the existence of slavery before there even was a U.S.A.

As Just The News explained:

Last year, New York Times Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Jake Silverstein wrote in a piece titled, “Why We Published the 1619 Project,” that the arrival of African slaves in the British colony of Virginia in 1619 “inaugurated a barbaric system of chattel slavery that would last for the next 250 years. This is sometimes referred to as the country’s original sin, but it is more than that: It is the country’s very origin.”

Schakowsky was asked whether the contents of the “1619 Project” should be taught as part of U.S. history when the country was not founded until 1776.

“That was one of the most compelling articles I ever read, that talked about how deep and dark our history of slavery really is, that even as our country was founded, slavery was entrenched in the culture of our country, and so I think teaching that is – it’s just one of the most compelling articles and informative articles to set the stage of how we are where we are today. So I am all for that incredible article,” she said during a conference call in response to a question from Just the News.

The anti-American Schakowsky is one of 139 America-hating Democrats who co-sponsored the Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act to create a committee to “examine slavery and discrimination in the colonies and the United States from 1619 to the present and recommend appropriate remedies.”

This woman is a traitor.

Democrat Tim Kaine Faces Backlash after Claiming U.S.A. Invented Slavery

Virginia Democrat U.S. Senator Tim Kaine was slapped around good on social media after his great lie when he said the United States invented slavery.



Virginia Democrat U.S. Senator Tim Kaine was slapped around good on social media after his great lie when he said the United States invented slavery.

Tim Kaine, if you don’t remember, was picked as Hillary Clinton’s vice presidential running mate, but he is wholly ignorant of American… no, human history.

This lying half-wit took to the floor of the U.S. Senate on Tuesday and disgorged this outright lie:

“The first African Americans sent into the English colonies came to Point Comfort in 1619. They were slaves, they had been captured against their will, but they landed in colonies that didn’t have slavery — there were no laws about slavery in the colonies at that time. The United States didn’t inherit slavery from anybody. We created it.”

“It got created by the Virginia General Assembly and the legislatures of other states. IIt got created by the court systems in colonial America that enforced fugitive slave laws.”

Nearly every word Kaine said in this is an outright lie, not to mention wholly illogical.

Firstly, the blacks sent to the colonies in 1619 were NOT “African Americans.” There was no “America” at the time. There was no United States for well over 100 years after 1619! The colonies were British territory. And other slaves were sent to Spanish and French territories in this new world.

So, these were AFRICAN Africans, not “African Americans.”

Secondly, there absolutely was slavery in the New World, and it was here before white men ever came here.

Many Native American tribes practiced slavery through conquest and war. They would capture members of other tribes (especially women) and hold them in captivity. This practice occurred in every corner of the Native American world before whites even knew this continent existed.

It is also idiotic to claim that American somehow invented slavery. After all, slavery is in the Bible which was written thousands of years before the British Colonies and the United States were founded.

Slavery has been practiced by every race, every ethnicity, and every nation going back to the dawn of time. To claim that the idea sprang into being because the United States is evil is woefully ignorant of any part of human history.

And on top of all that… how could they be slaves BEFORE America “invented” it? Kaine admitted that the Africans were “captured” and “sent against their will” before they came to America. So, slavery obviously existed before they got to America, or they could not have been “captured” and “sent” here in the first place. So, how could Americans have invented slavery if the slaves were enslaved and sent here first? Kaine’s brain does not work the way it is supposed to.

Get a load of this moron:
