Christmas Spirit of ’76
Washington saves Revolution
by Rich Lowry
Gen. George Washington’s army retreated from New York in ignominy in November 1776. As it moved through New Jersey, Lt. James Monroe, the future president, stood by the road and counted the troops: 3,000 left from an original force of 30,000.
In December 1776, the future of America hung on the fate of a bedraggled army barely a step ahead of annihilation.
The Americans confronted about two-thirds of the strength of the British army, and half its navy, not to mention thousands of German mercenaries. Ron Chernow recounts in his new book, “Washington: A Life,” that when the British fleet showed up off New York, an American soldier marveled that it was as if “all London was afloat.”
The defense of New York was barely worthy of the name. When British troops crossed into Manhattan at Kips Bay, the Americans ran. Washington reportedly exclaimed in despair, “Are these the men with which I am to defend America?”
Later, from the New Jersey Palisades, he watched as the British took Fort Washington across the Hudson, held by 3,000 American troops, and put surrendering Americans to the sword. According to one account, Washington turned away and wept “with the tenderness of a child.” (more…)

It should come as no surprise that within the NOI, black on black violence mimics the Muslim on Muslim violence elsewhere in the world. It should also come as no surprise that Louis Farrakhan parallels terrorist leaders like Osama Bin Laden. Malcom X learned this the hard way. All of this is just the nature of Islam.
Politics, liberalism and fear are the only things standing in the way of dealing with the NOI as it should be dealt with, as a terrorist organization. Do either of these following organizations ring any bells: Your Black Muslim Bakery or the Black Panthers?
The NOI is a front group for terrorism, just like CAIR. As far as this Cracker is concerned, Farrakhan belongs at the end of a rope.

More Overlooked History: Black Violence
If there was such a distinction as a Mainstream Journalism Award for Understatement, my nominee for 2007 would go to the Washington Post. On Friday, August 10, 2007, it published a front-page article by Karl Vick, entitled “For Some in Oakland, Editor’s Death Shows Subversion of Black Activism,” about the recent murder of Oakland Post editor Chauncey Bailey. Bailey’s alleged killer is Devaughndre Broussard, a 19-year old foot soldier in a local institution known as Your Black Muslim Bakery, who pegged Bailey with a shotgun and then proceeded to pump a second blast into his face.
The Washington Post suggested that the murder symbolizes that Oakland’s radical black movement “had over the years gone awry, and that the violence that infused parts of that tradition had been tolerated too long.”
Gosh, do you really think so? For some, it did not take the murder of a prominent black journalist in 2007 to realize this point
Oakland was, after all, the birth place of the Black Panthers. }} more…
