We raided and sold our neighbours as slaves.

Recently, in June 2018, the Oluwo of Iwo made a public apology.

Who’s the Oluwo of Iwo?

He’s the king of the Iwo Kingdom in Nigeria. Iwo is a city in the Osun State in Nigeria, and the Iwo Kingdom is based on this city. The Iwo Kingdom is also a traditional state.

Now what’s interesting about this apology is that it’s specifically about his monarchy. It’s an apology, which admits that his ancestors had condoned and earned wealth from the African slavers who had raided and sold their peers from rival tribes to the Europeans.

It’s very telling to read this honest admittance from a monarch in Nigeria:

“I regret the involvement of traditional institutions in slavery. Monarchs are one of the stakeholders that promoted slavery. We sold our children for a wall clock, tobacco, alcohol, guns, glass cup, wine, necklace, food plate, sweet and other unmerited peanuts such that, today, many Africans are permanently loss to suffer the stigmatization and unfair treatment till date.

I take the bull by the horns to apologize for the role kingship played in slave trade because of material life. Many black Americans are yet to recover from the wound of slavery. I`m apologizing to the accidental blacks in Cuba, Brazil, Caribbeans, America and other parts of the world. I want the victims to acknowledge our regret for the past and we move forward.

White men never forced us to sell our children as slave. Our fathers voluntarily released their children on excitement for peanut. Then, there was no means of payment. Human were offered in exchange for glittering material gifts. Such ignorance shouldn’t have survived without monarchs consent, who by then were the heads. We owe past and current an apology. I’m leading in tendering that.”

The Transatlantic Slave Trade was only possible because it took willing sellers and willing buyers to make this trade happen. So then, there were Africans who raided and sold their peers from rival tribes to the Europeans. Unfortunately, they were willing sellers.

It seems to me that it’s both greed and complicity that these African slavers felt. The Europeans were also cravenly interested in purchasing slaves as guaranteed labour to build and harvest the cash crops for their colonies.

Tracey Ullman: “When you’re so woke, you’re asleep”

This gives me hope 😂🤣😅.

The BBC still has a sense of humour.

This sketch wasn’t CENSORED by the Millennials who are trying to be deeply virtuous. That virtue would be the virtue of Social Justice.

One minute you’re carrying a reusable water bottle, and the next minute you’re arguing water is racist.”

Progressivism never ever stops.

This is a funny comic.

It depicts the slippery slope of Progress. Specifically it’s a pock shot at Progressive morals and why “Progressivism” never stops erasing and replacing tradition. That tradition would be traditional knowledge, culture and morals upheld by indigenous Elders. That’s one example.

My specific problem I have with White progressive liberals is that they only get miffed when a younger generation of “Progressives” mature into young adulthood and demand to replace the Elders. Liberal progressives prefer to never quit replacing whatever morals and cultural riches had predated them with their own thought up morals. Simply put, Progressivism is a belief that an older moral system must be erased and replaced with a more chic and edgier moral system.

The Indigenous peoples in Canada get what I’m talking about because they were legislated by White liberal progressive-minded Canadians to attend *Residential Schools*.

Progressive liberals expounded they were on the “right side of history” and felt moral goodness when the Canadian federal government had made it law to pack up and send off Indigenous children to both Catholic and Protestant run boarding schools. All these schools where managed by a majority of White people. There was a token Indian administrator, but the majority were White Canadians. An example of a such an Indian administrator was the Indigenous man who was the principal of the Protestant Christian run residential school, called Cecilia Jeffrey Indian Residential School, which Chanie Wenjack had ran away from. Chanie Wenjack had also died of exposure.

I also am honestly very tired of repeatedly being interrupted with “…but SLAVERY and the Jim Crow legislated White Supremacy in the U.S. had to be erased by Progressives.” However, I’m not talking about that, Buttheads. I’m talking about a wholesale and never-ending erasure of traditions and moral systems like:

1) You are a child from a First Nations band in Canada, and you were legislated to get only schooled in English because your ancestors “Native” language was believed to be “dated”.

I’m talking about neverending Progressivism that does erasure like that. Got it?

That is my warning to anyone who wants to talk about White Supremacy and about how White progressive liberals were always saving the day. White progressives have fucked up, and they continue to leave their foot prints on someone else’s tradition of respecting their Elders.

The Humboldt Broncos: Nora Loreto’s Social Justice response to a tragic bus crash – part 4

I had caught a supporter of Nora Loreto doing a lie, which was fake news.

The lie purported that Celeste Leray-Leicht (a Humboldt Broncos mother) was being mobbed with hate email and social media text messages.

The steps of this fake news occured like this:

1) Denise Balkisson (@balkisson) had linked to “PARENTS OF JACOB LEICHT FIND PURPOSE IN THE FACE OF TRAGEDY” by Ken Campbell, from The Hockey News, as part of her tweet:

2) The Twitter user @trapdinawrpool next used the screencapture from Denise’s tweet, and retweeted the image with the fake news claim that a Humboldt Broncos mother was being mobbed.

Below is the screencapture:

The tweet from @trapdinawrpool was exactly versed as: “The mob now turns its blood lust toward the mother of a deceased Humboldt player. This has never been about respect for the dead and their families but instead serving a white supremacist world view.”

Finally, Nora Loreto retweeted the fake news from @trapdinawrpool:

Nora had retweeted a fake claim from the Twitter user @trapdinawrpool because, obviously, the fake news had fit her own narrative of herself being a victim and that a mob was being irrational.

However, Nora is a terrible journalist for not vetting what is real news versus fake news from her Twitter fans. A real journalist has to assess the content that one of her fans blurbs. This is called having journalistic standards.

The Humboldt Broncos: Nora Loreto’s Social Justice response to a tragic bus crash – part 3

Many Canadians are now familiar with the Humboldt Broncos bus crash near the town of Tisdale, Saskatchewan.

16 people (10 of whom were the hockey players) were killed by the collision of a semi transport truck with the bus of the Humboldt Broncos. The location of this terrible collision was at the intersection of Highway 335 and Highway 35 in Saskatchewan.

As well, many Canadians became acquainted with Nora Loreto’s infamous tweet. It was a posturing statement that first demonstrated a moralizing Social Justice, and then a very weak condolence toward the Humboldt Broncos.

Nora had to tweet: “The Humboldt Tragedy is so terrible. I know that’s obvious but there’s really not much more to say.

However, she didn’t stop with ‘there’s not much more to say‘, but continued to yap:

I’m trying to not get cynical about what is a totally devastating tragedy but the maleness, the youthfulness and the whiteness of the victims are, of course, playing a significant role.”

She next embarked on a daily Twitter campaign to display herself as a victim. Of course, Nora had called anyone a Nazi and White Supremacist while doing this self absorbed effort to seem like a victim.

The words ‘Nazis’ and ‘White Supremacy’ were overused by Nora Loreto. Her incessant usage had made these words noise.

I liked this guy’s correction of her frequent overuse of ‘Nazis’:

It also doesn’t matter that he made a typo with ‘appropriate’. He made his point.

The Humboldt Broncos: Nora Loreto’s Social Justice response to a tragic bus crash – part 2

I read all of Nora Loreto’s first tweets that mixed her political opinion with her very mild condolences for the Humboldt Broncos. Nora’s Social Justice opinion in those tweets had overshadowed her condolence.

She said “…there’s really not much more to say” but chose to continue with: “I’m trying to not get cynical about what is a totally devastating tragedy but the maleness, the youthfulness and the whiteness of the victims are, of course, playing a significant role….”.

Her tweets read like backhanded compliments.

Also Number 4 would have been her laughing at the opposition. This opposition was the legitimate criticism (both civil and pointed) that Nora was tweeted:

Nora-Loreto_Humboldt-Broncos-bus-crash-tweets_2nd-tweet

Nora-Loreto_Humboldt-Broncos-bus-crash-tweets_5th-tweet

Nora-Loreto_Humboldt-Broncos-bus-crash-tweets_6th-tweet

Yes, Nora was messaged anger. This anger included both threats, death threats and civil rebuke. Nora didn’t once tweet examples of the pointed (but civil) criticism that she got. She complained that Nazis and White Supremacists must have been tweeting her the criticism.

Thanks Nora, I’m neither.

The Humboldt Broncos: Nora Loreto’s Social Justice response to a tragic bus crash

I keep track of tragic accidents, and recently there was a very severe bus accident in Canada. On April 6th, this year in Saskatchewan, the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team suffered a terrible collision with a transport semi truck. 16 people, in total, had died. Only 13 people had survived.

The location of this terrible collision was at the intersection of Highway 335 and Highway 35 in Saskatchewan. As well, another life taking collision took place at this same intersection two decades ago. In 1997, a family of 6 were killed when their truck was hit by a tractor trailer truck at this intersection, which is also called Armley Corner.

When you look at the photo on the right, you see that the Humboldt Broncos bus was travelling North along Highway 35. The semi transport truck was travelling West along Highway 335. The Humboldt Broncos bus had the right of way. So when the transport truck drove through the intersection, the Humboldt Broncos bus couldn’t immediately stop to avoid the semi transport truck. The trees that you see in both photos show that the Humboldt Broncos bus driver, Glen Doerkson, didn’t see the transport truck immediately as he drove the Humboldt team’s bus through the intersection.

The RCMP are investigating this horrific collision. They will also update the Canadian public with its conclusion once it has a complete report.

In the meantime, insult was added to injury when a Social Justice adherent, named Nora Loreto, decided it was a good idea to show off her presumed superior Social Justice morality on Twitter.

Nora could have tweeted “This Is A Tragedy” without including a Social Justice moral lecture. However, Nora wanted to display her Social Justice. She let it all hang out. There was no humility.

Thanks for showing your naked Social Justice that’s in sore need of a shower, Nora.

So of course, Nora Loreto, had tweeted very false condolences to the Humboldt Broncos.

Here they are:

Nora had to tweet: “I’m trying to not get cynical about what is a totally devastating tragedy but the maleness, the youthfulness and the whiteness of the victims are, of course, playing a significant role.”

Her software, called Social Justice, is the newest religion that convinces the converts to ONLY view human beings by their pedigree of Race, Gender, Ethnicity, and so on.

Intersectionality is Pedigree. It is the newest form of Birth Right for anyone who identifies their ancestors as being wronged. This birth right is an entitlement to justice as retribution. The retribution would be from anyone currently alive whose ancestors were the Wrong Doers and the Transgressors.

Finally, intersectionality is undoubtedly the latest iteration of the Catholic Christian belief of Original Sin. It is both a birth right and a smudge of original sin.

I am done with Nora Loreto. Her Social Justice stinks and it’s only sectarian politics that’s rotten to the core.
