[ASI] When Slaves Burned Down the White House

Dear Friend of America’s Survival:

The left has reacted with glee to Colin Kaepernick’s protest of the National Anthem, with anti-American writer Glenn Greenwald’s The Intercept running a story saying the National Anthem celebrated slavery. This is absolute hogwash. It celebrated freedom and independence.

The rarely-sung verse at issue celebrates the deaths of British mercenaries (hirelings) and “freed” slaves who were hired by the British to burn down the White House during the war of 1812. The British were offering faux freedom to slaves if they would fight for the British oppressors and  wage war on America. You can find this information in the book, Critical White Studies: Looking Behind the Mirror, By Richard Delgado and Jean Stefancic. Some of the “freed” slaves wore redcoat uniforms. Jane Cook, the author of Stories of Faith and Courage from the Revolutionary War and The Faith of America’s First Ladies, reports, “Called the Colonial or West Indies Militia, these former slaves were part of the British marines, soldiers, and sailors who attacked Washington. These forces defeated American forces at Bladensburg, Maryland, on August 24, 1814, and arrived at sunset in Washington, where they burned most of the public buildings, most notoriously the White House and the U.S. Capitol.”

Here’s the verse:

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore,
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
A home and a Country should leave us no more?
Their blood has wash’d out their foul footstep’s pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

So naturally, from the viewpoint of the American revolutionaries, the deaths of those fighting against America and burning down the White House would be celebrated.

Once again, our media have gotten the facts totally mixed up. Most of our media are shiftless and lazy, not to mention ideologically left-wing.

My new column on the black murder of two white nuns is getting some attention. Here is it featured  by GOPUSA:

Hillary once talked about black super predators and then backed away. This is one of them. They do exist.

More has come out regarding his criminal record. Here’s what we now know:

  • Sanders was in prison from June 2004 to February 2011 on a conviction of second-degree robbery.
  • Sanders was in prison in Iowa from August 1999 to August 2002 on a conviction of theft.
  • From April to October 1996 for two counts of third-offense drunken driving.
  • Sanders was on probation after a prison term for a felony drunken-driving conviction in Mississippi last year.
  • He was also convicted of another armed robbery charge, sentenced in 1986 and served six years.

And don’t forget our column on the Illegal Alien Bus Massacre in Louisiana.
