“Young people – don’t be in awe of past generations of white men – firstly they are dead, so they cannot have been as great as they have been portrayed, and secondly you can safely ignore much of what they said because most of them were odious racists”.
For example, here are a couple of quotes from 2 famous American “liberals”
(uh-oh, I can’t vouch for their accuracy either, but they do ring truthful for their times)
Inscribed on the Jefferson Memorial in Washington DC in reference to Negro slaves:
"Nothing is more certainly written in the book of fate, than that these people are to be free.”
Thomas Jefferson's actual words:
"Nothing is more certainly written in the book of fate, than that these people are to be free; nor is it less certain that the two races, equally free, cannot live in the same government. Nature, habit, opinion has drawn indelible lines of distinction between them."
Abraham Lincoln to a group of Negro community leaders on August 14th of 1862:
"Why should the people of your race be colonized, and where? Why should they leave this country? This is, perhaps, the first question for proper consideration. You and we are different races. We have between us a broader difference than exists between almost any other two races. Whether it is right or wrong I need not discuss, but this physical difference is a great disadvantage to us both, as I think your race suffer very greatly, many of them by living among us, while ours suffer from your presence. In a word, we suffer on each side. If this be admitted, it affords a reason at least why we should be separated. It is better for both, therefore, to be separated."
Therefore, it came as no great surprise to find that Albert Schweitzer held “racist” opinions about blacks, especially so since he lived amongst them for 50 years. That is to say he didn’t believe the prevailing orthodoxy - the Marxist misinformation that “all races are inherently equal”, and that if some APPEAR not to be equal it is only because they haven’t been educated”. In other words, its whiteys fault AS USUAL of course, as it is our responsibility to educate them isn’t it? (If, like me, you can immediately spot the flagrant flaw within this classic case of “liberal logic”, then you are obviously a racist too..!)
Now if one hundred liberals had loudly proclaimed that Schweitzer, a Nobel Prize Peace Prize winner, “never said such a thing” I would have rightfully ignored them due to the liberal urgency to grasp at the flimsiest straw that would seem to support racial equality whilst ignoring the strongest tree pointing in the opposite direction. Liberals are part liar, part fools, and part self-deceivers, but mostly they are intellectually dishonest LIARS..!
However, once a single “race-realist” (ie, an intellectually honest person) sincerely questions the veracity of the passage, then I really have to think again. Also the more I thought about this "quote" the more I began to get suspicious, esp as there was no chapter/page reference. It is very important that us RR's dont publish untruths - that is the trademark of the lying liberal.
With the benefit of hindsight it was suspicious that a specific chapter or page was never mentioned, only the name of the book. Also, in 1950, the Useless Nations (in a foretaste of the lunacy for which it was to become known) solemnly declared that all humans were equal.
All in all, it would have been surprising for him to have won a Nobel Prize AFTER saying such things, even back in 1951.
Of course, this does not mean that Schweitzer NEVER expressed these words, but if he did then I am now quite sure it was not in a mainstream publication – more likely it was in an interview (or letter) to an obscure European magazine and most probably not long before his death at the age of 90 in 1965. Old people are inclined to speak their mind – it is perhaps the only advantage bestowed by old age. Besides which, it is apparently acknowledged even amongst liberals that Schweitzer did have some racist traits – he would not sit at the same dining table as Africans, for example, and this dovetails rather closely with some of what he purportedly said in the heretical passage.
The bottom line is, it doesn’t really matter whether he said it or not, because anyone who knows the African mentality well, knows the sentiments expressed are 100% accurate.
