The other day, in picking one of the most recent examples of the Democrat Party’s blatant racism in a piece called Racist Democrats Unleash their Nazi to Slay their Communist, I drew attention to Democrat Party's House Majority Whip James Clyburn’s interview with Neil Cavuto. It fit into the article, but what he said is so egregious it needs to be examined on its own.
In responding to whether President Trump deserves some credit for helping facilitate an economy where blacks and Hispanics have all-time low unemployment rates, Clyburn said this:
No, because it’s not true not true, I'm saying that the African American unemployment is not the lowest it's ever been unless you [don’t] count slavery … We were fully employed during slavery. So it all depends how you measure this up.
According to the Hill dot com, in response to the potential of President Trump becoming more popular in the black community because of the lowest black unemployment rate since the Democrats kept 100% of all blacks employed as slaves, Clyburn said that was impossible because:
I go to church with African Americans. I live with African Americans. I'm the father of African Americans.
Ok, if it’s true he goes to church with other black folks, chances are, he’s heard the story of Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin. In the decade leading up to the Civil War, this story was so popular and influential that, in 1862, when President Lincoln finally got to meet Harriet Beecher Stowe, he reportedly said, “So you are the little lady that started this war.”
It is more than just a story about slavery. It’s a story about forgiveness and living righteously, no matter how bad your circumstances are. Even in slavery, Tom refused to give into the temptation to kill his drugged-up slave master at the request of the slave master’s sex slave Cassy. Even back then, Democrats had the habit of keeping sex slaves, just like they do now in the day and age of Epstein, Weinstein, NXIVM, Wexner, Nygard and all the dominoes about to fall... After reminding Cassy that, if Tom or she were to kill Simon Legree they’d be willingly selling their souls to evil, he instead talked her into escaping.
And this little detail of a much larger story right here is why so many liberals like Clyburn and those who admire this man consider being an “Uncle Tom” a terrible thing – because Tom refused to give into evil and murder the man who’d enslaved him. Instead, he held to his Christian faith and was able to forgive, even without the slave master’s repentance. Those, who would have black folks give into this evil and therefore refuse to forgive those who’d do them wrong, are essentially seeking to curse the souls of those in whose hearts they’ve purposely implanted the spirit of unforgiveness. Satan comes at you from many different directions – oftentimes with the help of your supposed friends.
While Luke 13:3-5, suggests that without repentance there is no forgiveness or being saved, in Ephesians 4:32 we are instructed to forgive others just as “God, for Christ’s sake, hath forgiven you.” There doesn’t seem to be the qualifying portion of the law where we only have to give forgiveness to those who’ve repented.
Luke 13:3-5 King James Version (KJV)
3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
4 Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem?
5 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
Ephesians 4:25-32 King James Version (KJV)
25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.
26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:
27 Neither give place to the devil.
28 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.
29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:
32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.
With that in mind, the real purpose of the story becomes more apparent. Guess what, even though Tom didn’t give into his anger and kill his slave master, he is still the hero. There’s no cathartic slewing of the beast. It’s bigger and more Biblically sophisticated than that.
Before the scene mentioned above, while out in the fields one day, Lucy, another slave working the fields with Tom, was feeling ill. Her sack of cotton was light as a result. It didn’t help that Legree’s slave-hand overseers Sambo and Quimbo kicked her while she was down. Sambo and Quimbo are truly what liberal black folks claim an Uncle Tom is, but, because Clyburn and his ilk have done so little to make sure modern-day black folks know how to read or even have a desire to read things that aren’t ideologically simpatico with godless liberalism, the story is turned upside down.
Like James Clyburn, who, in the House of Representatives, whips up the votes for his Massa Pelosi and all the other Democrats who are the descendants of the slave masters of the 19th and 18th centuries, Sambo and Quimbo whip their fellow black slaves in order to keep them in line and working hard at the demands of their slave master Legree.
Only thing is, Clyburn’s worse that Sambo and Quimbo, even though they ultimately whipped Tom to death.
Massa Legree wanted Tom to be broken, but Tom had become a Christian at the plantation he was at before he was sold to Legree. His moral fortitude in Christ gave him the strength to resist Sambo and Quimbo’s orders to whip Lucy for not working hard enough.
Because of his unwillingness to whip a weak and sick slave girl, Tom willingly got whipped by his slave master’s overseers.
This happened repeatedly because he persisted in refusing their demands on behalf of Legree.
Then, after talking Cassy out of ruining her soul by killing Legree, Cassy and Emmeline escape. When Legree, along with his demonic henchman Sambo and Quimbo, demands to know where they went, Tom refuses to give them any info. At that point, Sambo and Quimbo whipped him to death’s doorstep.
Just before passing out though, Tom whispers forgiveness for Legree.
Tom did this without Legree repenting, even as repentance is normally necessary for forgiveness. Tom gave it freely, even as he was on death’s doorstep. Later, once the dying Tom had woken again, Sambo and Quimbo actually apologized for what they had done.
There was something about the moral fortitude in Tom’s ability to forgive the man that had demanded his death without even a “sorry” that changed the demonic slave master’s henchman. Tom, being the hero of great Christian moral fortitude, forgave Sambo and Quimbo in response to their repentance.
And this is why I say Clyburn, the unrepentant Sambo, is worse than Sambo and Quimbo. At least Sambo and Quimbo repented for what they had done.
Clyburn, on the other hand, has never repented for wielding Massa Pelosi’s whip to bring about and maintain an America where Democrats make it a point to oppress Clyburn’s own people, even after more than a hundred and fifty years have passed since Republicans made the Democrats give up their slaves. House Whip Clyburn and House Massa Pelosi are the modern-day heads of the party of slavery, the KKK, segregation and the purposeful genocide of black babies in the womb.
When it came time to give Trump credit for his race-blind policies that have lowered black unemployment to its all-time low, Clyburn refused to give him that credit. He instead took the credit on behalf of his party and their past ability to keep blacks in America at 100% employment during their days as the slave masters.
Not for one second did Clyburn stop and think about how immoral his party was when they were running the plantations and enslaving his own people and therefore, in his own words, giving them a 100% employment rate. That’s despicable. His lack of apology and refusal to repent make him worse than Sambo and Quimbo. At least they realized what they’d done was wrong and had apologized.
Clyburn’s mind has been so crippled with his soul being bought and paid for with the power that comes with wielding the whip on behalf of Massa Pelosi, he seemingly has no ability to understand anything to do with forgiveness about which he might ought’ve learned with other “African Americans in church.”
Instead, he’ll probably just go on and on, like other black liberals with the power given to them by the plantation massas, throwing the misused and misunderstood term “Uncle Tom” at anyone as brave as Cassy and Emmeline to have walked off the plantation. He’s just an unrepentant Sambo whose hate-twisted mind can do nothing but lust for power at any cost.
