Hollywood makes a film about the slaughter of 43 women and Children
They framed the murderers as heroes. Here’s how they did it and the real story with citations!
By Brett MacDonald AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS –
Hollywood is a liberal cesspool of revisionist history. It’s hard to deny it, but I am sure there are millions who will viciously do so anyways–it wasn’t a challenge. There once was a time that Hollywood was a disgusting unofficial Chamber of Washington Propaganda, and I had hoped that in my generation a golden age film would emerge. Boy was I let down. Today, rather than being a propaganda machine, Hollywood has become a puppy mill for liberal edginess. Time and time again absurd perversions of reality are spat out for the gullible masses to consume. Since people don’t read novels anymore this naturally contributes to the general dumbing down of society. But I digress!
Despite my already lowered expectations, the announcement of The Birth of a Nation–a movie about a black slave rebellion that takes its name from a very old movie about Klansmen–left me expecting a new achievement in gratuitous historical fanfiction. I was not disappointed. I don’t want to give anything away, but as a Russian friend of mine once told me: “You can’t spoil history!”
The Birth of a Nation (2016) follows the life of Nat Turner, leader of the eponymous Nat Turner’s Rebellion. In real life, Nat Turner was a child-killing, woman-slaying, wannabe prophet that viciously slaughtered the families of slave owners in the dead of night. The Birth of a Nation (2016) will be released in October, roughly 101 years after the original The Birth of a Nation. As mentioned above, the original is a ghastly portrayal of the reconstruction period that romanticized the KKK and made white people appear as the victims of black people in the south. The members of the Klan were the protagonists in the original. In this remake, a slaughtering band of marauders that kills an infant, nearly a dozen schoolchildren waiting for their teacher, countless wives and husbands, and numerous sons and daughters are made to look like heroes–in other words, the horseshoe theory is at play here.
I actually think that if the screenwriter from the first film were to get together with the screenwriter from the second they would have a blast–assuming one of them made sure to change his skin tone for the occasion.
Both versions of this film are nothing but a disgusting supremacist’s fetish. The original portrayal paints the rotten misdeeds of white people in a fresh hue of glory and the current rendition wallpapers over the miscreant, barbarity of a thuggish band of escaped slaves and attempts to portray them as Spartacus. There were numerous slave rebellions that were more worthy of a narrative–the Creole Case comes to mind. I would have no problem with Nat Turner, nor his rebellion, if they were killing their captors in a fair fight, if they were not harming little children, and if they were not chasing down and slaughtering women. But they were.
Here is how Hollywood chose to describe it anyways:
“Nat Turner, a former slave in America, leads a liberation movement in 1831 to free African-Americans in Virginia that results in a violent retaliation from whites.”
One of the most interesting things about the 2016 version is that it is written by a man that also plays the main character, Nate Parker. No doubt, the slaughter will be portrayed as a fair fight when, in reality, Nat Turner and his gang of rebelling slaves killed their masters in the dead of night. They did not care whether those masters were women. They did not care if those masters were children. They killed mercilessly, with crude weapons that often failed to strike a death blow on the first attempt and left their victims awoken, to face their murderers unforgiving eyes in their final moments.
But don’t take my word for it–Nat Turner was cornered, surrendered, and rendered a confession. His confession was reaffirmed by him in court and the record thereof survives today. It can be found right here.
- Here are a list of the dead killed by Turner and his men: Joseph Travers and wife and three children, Mrs. Elizabeth Turner, Hartwell Prebles, Sarah Newsome, Mrs. P. Reese and son William, Trajan Doyle, Henry Bryant and wife and child, and wife’s mother, Mrs. Catharine Whitehead, son Richard and four daughters and grand-child, Salathiel Francis, Nathaniel Francis’ overseer and two children, John T. Barrow, George Vaughan, Mrs. Levi Waller and ten children, William Williams, wife and two boys, Mrs. Caswell Worrell and child, Mrs. Rebecca Vaughan, Ann Eliza Vaughan, and son Arthur, Mrs. John K. Williams and child, Mrs. Jacob Williams and three children, and Edwin Drury–amounting to fifty-five.
- For him it was White vs Black and NOT about slave vs master: “And about this time I had a vision–and I saw white spirits and black spirits engaged in battle”
- When asked if he repented and found himself mistaken knowing that he was to be put to death Turner said no: “Was not Christ crucified?”
- During the start of his rampage, he was living with a master that he thought was kind he killed him first: “I had been living with Mr. Joseph Travis, who was to me a kind master, and placed the greatest confidence in me; in fact, I had no cause to complain of his treatment to me….I entered my master’s chamber, it being dark, I could not give a death blow, the hatchet glanced from his head, he sprang from the bed and called his wife, it was his last word, Will laid him dead” They then killed the wife who was sleeping in the bed next to him.
- When the rebelling slaves realized that they missed an infant, they returned to kill it: “There was a little infant sleeping in a cradle, that was forgotten, until we had left the house and gone some distance, when Henry and Will returned and killed it.”
- Nat Turner thought he was a prophet. His parents told him he was meant for some great purpose. He gave a full confession to his lawyer, Thomas Gray, who represented him at the trial that where he pleaded “not guilty,” because he felt it was the work of God. He was insane.
- Nat never toured the country as a preacher. That is complete nonsensical BS created by writer Nate Parker’s meme “research.”
- Turner pretty much thought he was the second coming of Christ and believed God spoke directly to him: I was struck with that particular passage which says : “Seek ye the kingdom of Heaven and all things shall be added unto you.” I reflected much on this passage, and prayed daily for light on this subject–As I was praying one day at my plough, the spirit spoke to me, saying “Seek ye the kingdom of Heaven and all things shall be added unto you.” Question–what do you mean by the Spirit. Ans. The Spirit that spoke to the prophets in former days–and I was greatly astonished, and for two years prayed continually, whenever my duty would permit–and then again I had the same revelation, which fully confirmed me in the impression that I was ordained for some great purpose in the hands of the Almighty.”
- Turner was found hiding out in burrow like a wild animal after the rest of his band of thugs were caught and slain 2 months before.
- While Turner was on his slaughter run, house slaves helped some of the would-be victims by hiding them from the thugging marauders.
- It was a pair of slaves that turned Nat Turner in.
- This is not a movie that should have ever been made.
