On September 9, 2020 University of Virginia history Professor Elizabeth Varon penned an op-ed for The Washington Post entitled “Trump’s 2020 playbook is coming straight from Southern enslavers.”
Ashley Carnahan of Campus Reform noted how Varon “discussed the history of abolitionism in the 19th century and how it impacted the Civil War” and alluded to the “simple, powerful lesson” that Frederick Douglass and Harriet Jacobs understood regarding racial conflict in America. She asserted that both abolitionist figures understood that “racism and slavery, not abolitionism, were the root causes of American strife.”
Carnahan argued that White Southerners in that era were attempting to spark a race war between the North and the South. “Even as they [White Southerners] violently shattered the nation, secessionists continued to cast abolitionists as the disunionists, arguing that the agenda of emancipation and racial equality was just a Trojan horse for Northerners’ ruthless bid for power,” she declared.
Varnon likened Trump’s rhetoric concerning the protests and unrest in cities like Portland and Seattle to that of Southern enslavers who tried to suppress the abolitionist movements.
“In arguing that radical protesters endanger U.S. law and order, Trump is echoing the attacks leveled by Southern enslavers against abolitionists. The purpose of such tactics, then and now, is to confuse Americans about causes and effects — and to serve notice that those in power flatly refuse to cede any ground to progressive reformers.”
Alex Briegel, a UVA student, said to Campus Reform that “the article certainly serves as an entertaining read recounting the history of and battle between nineteenth-century abolitionists and traditionalists.”
He added, “whether Trump and various right-wing media are intentionally using these tactics or whether this is merely a coincidence is a question this article cannot answer. Still, Varnon illustrates an interesting point and each of us should determine for ourselves what this means for our vote.”
The history regarding the Civil War is often cartoonish at best thanks to the politically correct history curricula present in American universities. While the South was interested in preserving slavery, there were strong economic and cultural motives for its separation. The conflict was the final stage of regional tensions that had its origin during the constitutional debates. Additionally, the North was initially more concerned about maintaining the integrity of the nation rather than going on a moral crusade.
Civil conflict of that nature is not exceptional when looking at the history of nation states, which are often marked by civil conflict in their development as states. Like all nations, had its fair share of growing pain. Nonetheless, it has prevailed and made amends for previous errors. Unfortunately, the radical Left is more fixated with the past and willing to destroy all the positive aspects of America and its history just to prove a point.
A Researcher at Brown University Claims that Trump Signs and American Flags Frighten Black People
America’s “Finest” Institutions Down the Insane Path of Wokeness
Carycruz Bueno, a postdoctoral researcher at Brown University, tweeted about how Black Airbnb guests may actually receive trauma from looking at Trump signs.
A few weeks ago Bueno tweeted that the online vacation rental company “doesn’t understand the trauma” that Trump signs allegedly cause for Black people.
As Ben Zeisloft of Campus Reform noted, “Airbnb rentals are privately owned properties listed for short-term and long-term rental on Airbnb. Airbnb, unlike hotels, does not own the properties. It is the platform that connects private owners with renters and facilitates payments.”
Bueno claimed that when she and her husband arrived at a property they rented in Maine they saw “Trump signs and other white nationalist symbols” in the yard. Bueno recalled that she was “immediately scared” for her life and her family’s safety.
According to Bueno’s account of the situation, Airbnb said they could do nothing to address the situation. The Brown University researcher said that this a “prime example [of] how White companies make a BLM statement,”and then proceed to “do nothing” when a Black person declares that she doesn’t “feel safe.”
Bueno is of the opinion that Airbnb is “only words no action,” and should “do better” to accommodate the grievances of so-called persecuted groups.
She also advocated for the establishment of a “greenbook version of AirBnB” in order for BIPOC (black indigenous people of color) not have “to pay to feel uncomfortable and scared.”
Bueno even went as far as to say that the American flag could serve as a symbol “used in many places to scare Black people,” on top of KKK and Confederate symbols.
Several conservative students on campus were not happy with Bueno’s remarks.
Brown University Students for Trump President Emma Rae Phillips said to Campus Reform that she is “disappointed by Bueno’s comments.”
Phillips is an economics major and observed that Bueno’s “tweets do not seem to show much understanding of how free markets work” given how people who use Airbnb can patronize other services instead.
Additionally, she noted that “American flags and Trump signs are not racist in any way, shape, or form.”
With how radically indoctrinated many students have become, you can only expect the most outlandish of behavior coming from these students. Late stage political correctness if you will.
Conservatives may have to social distance themselves from these institutions of higher learning. They’re more like indoctrination centers at this point.
