African Attorney General Barr Compares Coronavirus Quarantine to Slavery - 09-19-2020, 01:31 AM

William Barr compared coronavirus lockdown to slavery talking to students and faculty of a private Christian college in Michigan:

Quote:
Attorney General William Barr drew sharp condemnation Thursday for comparing lockdown orders during the coronavirus pandemic to slavery. In remarks Wednesday night at an event hosted by Hillsdale College, Barr had called the lockdown orders the "greatest intrusion on civil liberties in American history" since slavery.
Of course the liberal media and all the crazy left wingers criticized him for it - I mean, they criticize him for everything, even if he says "it's raining" when it's clearly raining, the same crowd would still be appalled by his remarks.

Nonetheless, it is worth considering whether Attorney General was 100% correct in his statement. Let's compare and contrast:

Coronavirus quarantine
Coronavirus quarantines were introduced by communist left wing governments, taking away freedom from God fearing Christians in clear opposition to the Holy Bible:

Galatians 5:13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only [use] not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.

Sure, we weren't literally locked down in our houses, but our freedom to go to a restaurant, movie theater, even hair salon have been taken away from us.

The businesses have been closed, practically forcing people to do nothing - and God really does hate lazy bums who sit around without doing nothing:

Proverbs 19:15 Slothfulness casteth into a deep sleep; and an idle soul shall suffer hunger.
Proverbs 21:25 The desire of the slothful killeth him; for his hands refuse to labour.

1 Timothy 5:8 But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.
2 Thessalonians 3:10 For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.


So yes, in terms of taking away one's freedom the quarantine has been exactly like slavery. What's worse, we were not allowed to work, thus angering God. All to save lives of people who are either old or have preexisting conditions so they're going to die sooner or later anyway. Ridiculous.

Slavery
Slavery was also taking away freedom, which is why Barr made the comparison. However, slavery was forcing lazy bums to work, and as I have shown in the verses above, God wants everyone to work hard! Moreover, slavery is part of the social order that God has approved, to the point that God included detailed instructions both to slave owners and slaves themselves in the Life Manual that is the Holy Bible.

Ephesians 6:5 Servants, be obedient to them that are [your] masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ;

So slavery is approved by God. Sure, some slaves died on the way here (after their African black brothers have captured and sold them to white slavers on the African coast - white slavers never needed to venture into the continent by themselves), some died on the plantations, some children were sold away from their parents, really, nothing out of the ordinary, everything that happened can be easily justified with the Holy Bible.

In conclusion, Barr's comparison of slavery with coronavirus quarantines was basically true but a bit unfair: coronavirus quarantines are much worse than slavery.

You understand perfectly Attorney General Barr's point, Sister. I summarize it in this way. Slaves could not visit a barber shop or hair salon. Under the quarantine we cannot either. But, slaves knew how to take care of their hair themselves. Our familiarity with self hair care is minimal. That makes the quarantine worse than slavery.


Isaiah 24:1-3 Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty (2)...as the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him. (3) The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the LORD hath spoken his word.

As much as I admire Bill Barr, I don't think it is an apt analogy.

Slaves lead lives of perfect contentment, with their needs for food and shelter being provided to them at no charge, a zero unemployment rate, no drugs or gangs of roving Antifa terrorists to disrupt the lives of honest folk, a low black-on-black murder rate, fathers staying with their children until the children were sold, punishment doled out swiftly with the lash and pistol rather than through long periods of soul-crushing incarceration, and eternal salvation because we Christians brought the Good News of Jesus Christ to them. What Democrats don't understand is that slaveholders had an incentive to take good care of their property, so they did--a great example of the free market in action.

So-called "slavery" was in fact the greatest FREEDOM blacks have ever known, liberating them from the smothering cloak of ignorance, sloth, and savage violence that has defined every other period of their existence on this Earth.

"Slavery" guaranteed that every Negro buck, sow, and pickaninny had a hot meal waiting for them when they finished their day's work in the field. Never again would they have to pray to their ju-ju gods that the last strip of bark their skeletal fingers peeled back would reveal the cornucopia of wriggling grubs and flavorful lichens that still eluded them after weeks of foraging. They had it made in the shade.

"Slavery" is another worthless PC snarl word when misapplied to the servitude of Negroes under the firm but fair hand of the white man — which was simply the natural order of things.

True slavery is an affront to nature.

The balonavirus lockdowns are MUCH closer to slavery than anything blacks have ever endured.

Regardless of Hollywood fantasy, no black was ever forced to wear a harness over his face — one that muffled his speech and restricted his breathing. We must do exactly that, because of a harmless bug whose existence the elites cannot prove.

Under lockdown, we are prevented from dining outside the confines our homes, a violation of the Constitutional right to free assembly. Unable to socialize, unable to exercise, our bodies and minds wither away.

Black servitude, in contrast, turned Negroes into well-oiled machines who dominate sports to this very day. Why? Because that's literally what they were: expensive farm equipment. Their masters had financial incentive to keep them healthy and strong.

Black servitude birthed a Golden Age of Negro culture. The songs they sang to express the JOY of working for their betters can be heard in 99% of modern pop hits.

"Slavery" created culture. Lockdowns obliterate it.

Worst of all, many churches have permanently closed, allowing countless souls to spiral into sin and damnation. This is no accident. It is not collateral damage. It is the end goal, the calculated PLAN of the Satanic elites.

I understand and appreciate the intent behind Barr's words — but he is far, far off the mark here.


16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
1 Thess 4:16-17

In Africa, many societies recognized slaves merely as property, but others saw them as dependents who eventually might be integrated into the families of slave owners. Still other societies allowed slaves to attain positions of military or administrative power. Most often, both slave owners and slaves were black Africans, although they were frequently of different ethnic groups. Traditionally, African slaves were bought to perform menial or domestic labor, to serve as wives or concubines, or to enhance the status of the slave owner. Traditional African practices of slavery were altered to some extent beginning in the 7th century by two non-African groups of slave traders: Arab Muslims and Europeans. [emphasis added by ed.]
In fact, slavery has been so much an accepted traditional African practice (even if "altered to some extent" by Arab and European traders) that even today - a century after slavery has been outlawed - descendants of slaves are not allowed to marry descendants of slave owners and other free Africans:

Quote:
In a tragedy reminiscent of Romeo and Juliet, a couple in Nigeria killed themselves earlier this month after their parents had forbidden them from marrying because one of them was a descendant of slaves.

"They're saying we can't get married... all because of an ancient belief," the note they left behind said.

The lovers, who were in their early thirties, hailed from Okija in south-eastern Anambra state, where slavery was officially abolished in the early 1900s, as in the rest of the country, by the UK, Nigeria's colonial ruler at the time.

But descendants of freed slaves among the Igbo ethnic group still inherit the status of their ancestors and they are forbidden by local culture from marrying those Igbos seen as "freeborn".
So frankly, African Americans should be thankful that their ancestors were mercifully moved to a continent where (1) slavery ended earlier than in their homeland, and (2) currently there is no prohibition of slave/free descendants intermarriage.

I always enjoy pictures of healthy and happy Africans who are doing well here in the U.S. Many go into show business:

A Nigerian woman works at my dentist's office. Her name is N'kosi or something. Last time I was there, two black delivery men damaged a shipment of anesthesia drugs by unloading them roughly from the back of the truck, as if the boxes were full of chicken wings. I cringed as the vials within shattered audibly. But what really shocked me was N'gala's response.

"Stupid niggahs!" she shrieked at the loafers. "G'won back to da trees, ya pack ah' monkeys!"

For a moment they stared dumbfounded, mouths hanging open like deflated inner tubes. Then they scurried back their truck.

"I sorry, Miz T," said M'gamba. "'Counta all my people, I sorry. We da ones what done sent dem jigaboos ova heeya, way back in da old times. We only wanted to be rid of dem, don'cha see. But it don' be right. We shoulda poke holes in all da ships, so dey sink into da sea wit all dem worthless niggahs 'fore dey touch down 'pon dis land. No, it don' be right."

And that was how I learned that Africans hate American blacks and consider them nothing more than (semi-)upright apes. It makes perfect sense. The first slaves in America represented a sampling of the absolute bottom of the African barrel.

If blacks really want "muh repuhrayshunz," they should demand them not from whites (whose only crime was purchasing 388,000 lemons) but from the ones who enslaved them in the first place and look down wide, flat noses at them to this very day: their own cousins in the Motherland.

They won't do that, of course.

Why not?

Because blacks want to get paid in actual money — not leaves, berries, scorpion tails, carved buffalo turds, or whatever passes for currency in Africa these days.


16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

Indeed. In Africa, the descendants of the black slave traders are still enjoying prosperity achieved by their slaver ancestors.

People from ethnic groups along the coast, such as the Efik and Ijaw, usually acted as stevedores for the white merchants and as middlemen for Igbo traders like my great-grandfather.

They loaded and offloaded ships and supplied the foreigners with food and other provisions. They negotiated prices for slaves from the hinterlands, then collected royalties from both the sellers and buyers.
So, while it would be logical for African Americans to demand reparations from their African cousins, as you say:

Excellent point, Sister, excellent point.

On the other hand, the whole reparations issue is very tricky. If we seriously wanted to repay the damages caused by transatlantic slave trade, we would also have to repay the damages caused by the cease of the transatlantic slave trade.

But by using force rather than persuasion, many local people such as my great-grandfather may not have understood that abolition was about the dignity of humankind and not a mere change in economic policy that affected demand and supply.

"We think this trade must go on," one local king in Bonny infamously said in the 19th Century.

"That is the verdict of our oracle and our priests. They say that your country, however great, can never stop a trade ordained by God."...

Acclaimed Igbo historian Adiele Afigbo described the slave trade in south-eastern Nigeria which lasted until the late 1940s and early 1950s as one of the best kept secrets of the British colonial administration.

While the international trade ended, the local trade continued.

"The government was aware of the fact that the coastal chiefs and the major coastal traders had continued to buy slaves from the interior," wrote Afigbo in The Abolition of the Slave Trade in Southern Nigeria: 1885 to 1950.
When the transatlantic slave trade dried up, it caused colossal damages for the African slave traders! They had to continue capturing, selling, and keeping slaves in secret!! Can you imagine the hardships endured by the African slave owners who had to hide their slaves from prying eyes??? They had the moral obligation to obey God's laws before white men's laws!
