The Pledge Bachmann Signed: President Obama is Worse Than Slavery

Religious fanatic pledge also stokes racism
Wingnuts • Views: 21,811

Here’s the Iowa Family Leader “Marriage Vow” signed yesterday by Michele Bachmann, and I recommend that everyone read this — to see just how insane these people are. The very first bullet point on the first page gives you an idea:

Slavery had a disastrous impact on African-American families, yet sadly a child born into slavery in 1860 was more likely to be raised by his mother and father in a two-parent household than was an African-American baby born after the election of the USA’s first African-American president.

Here’s the study they cite to back up this claim, from yet another religious right “think tank” — and it was released in 2005, three years before Barack Obama took office. So how can they use this to bemoan the state of African-American families after Obama was elected?

Simple answer: they’re lying. And Michele Bachmann, currently one of the GOP frontrunners for the Presidential nomination, has put her signature on these lies.

There’s no longer any doubt — this will be the most fanatical, reactionary right wing slate of candidates ever fielded by the Republican Party.

Holy crap. If her previous statements and pronouncements are any indication, I doubt Bachmann even read this pledge. Not that she would have refused to sign if she had; she probably agrees with the sentiment.

And of course what they'll say is that they were just noting that Obama is president, and is black, and they weren't trying to draw any comparison.

This is more of the concern trolling of the black community by Conservatives, trying to drum up the "Liberals are killing you aborting your babies" shit. They're also taking the word 'genocide' and using it in a perverted fashion.

Twits.

Really, I can only come to two possible explanations for Bachmann's signature:

1) She's just doing it because she believes it'll give her some sort of edge in Iowa with the crazies, who seem to be the most vocal minority in the GOP.

2) She really is that dumb/crazy.

The only good news about all of this is that the GOP continues to marginalize itself more and more everyday.... now I just hope the Democrats can get the message out to the average American...

I'd like to thank Bachmann and her associates for providing additional material supporting my position on never voting for the GOP again.

What they don't mention is that in 1860 one parent owns the the other parent and the child.

Yes on both counts. I'm just surprised the frothy mix hasn't signed yet, since his only excuse for still being in this race is that he's the most reactionary social conservative running, but now Bachmann has just upped the ante on the crazy.

Seriously. Are they just entirely dodging that topic? Yep.

Are they dodging the topic of the children of slaves being sold?

Yep.

Are they ignoring that the children of slaves generally started working from the time they were very young, getting no education whatsoever except what they could cadge for themselves?

Yep.

How are their parents raising them when their parents aren't allowed to make any independent choices for them?

Contemptible, utterly racist crap. Where are people in the GOP calling out this shit? Why is the GOP leadership betting on racist america and not, well, America?

I'm especially interested in seeing who does and doesn't sign and what their reasoning is. Which one of the candidates is willing to step forward and gladly gulp down the Kool-Aid before asking for seconds. Because this is the sort of wild-eyed ideology that would normally kill a candidate in any other election season.

From Nate Silver's twitter:

The "source" for the dubious statistic in pledge Bachmann signed comes from here. It refers to 1880-1910, not slavery.

So, just a flat out racist lie.

Yay.

Want to hear what actual slaves thought of marriage under slavery?


As John Anderson explained: "I did not want to marry a girl belonging to my own place, because I knew I could not bear to see her ill-treated." Moses Grandy agreed he wrote: "no colored man wishes to live at the house where his wife lives, for he has to endure the continual misery of seeing her flogged and abused without daring to say a word in her defence." As Henry Bibb pointed out: "If my wife must be exposed to the insults and licentious passions of wicked slave-drivers and overseers. Heaven forbid that I should be compelled to witness the sight."

And imagine watching your child get beaten in front of you, with now chance to help him.

Yeah, that's 'raising' a child alright.

Really, the only thing missing from the pledge is an invitation to African Americans to go back to the good old days and let white folks run their affairs and own their offspring, since obviously the whole freedom and equality thing isn't working out so well for them.

How much 'raising' of your child can you do when you're working in the fields from dawn until dusk? You can snatch a few minutes for them in the morning and at night, I guess.

But at least there were two parents, except their parents couldn't bear to be together and watch each other get abused.

The poor mothers probably got to have that "So, we can't stop the white men from raping me, mommy?" talk with their daughters, too. Such an important time when you're raising a child.

Sorry to paint such a horrific picture. but goddamn, this is one of the foulest and evilest and most racist things to enter mainstream US politics.

Worse, watching your kids dragged off to be sold at auction, knowing you'll never see them again. And we're not talking teens, we're talking kids as young as 6 or 7, being stripped from their parents for the rest of their lives.

And these are the same nitwits who get angry when the government "tells them" how to raise their own kids.

32 kirkspencer  Fri, Jul 8, 2011 11:33:23am

I just finished my first read-through of the study - actually a literature review - Charles links. There's a lot of cases of treating correlation as causation. Example: a greater proportion of Single parent blacks are poverty stricken than married blacks. Therefore, goes this study, blacks becoming married would reduce poverty.

(I took a side-trip through one of the studies they used for this - Lerman's Impacts of Marital Status and Parental Presence on the Material Hardship of Families with Children, 2002. Lerman notes with surprise two things in relation to black parents, marriage, and poverty levels. First, while the poverty level for single parents is greater than that of married parent, the difference is surprisingly small. Second, the BIG failure is cohabiting but unmarried parents. He also notes that for other than black this is untrue - the order of decreasing poverty levels for them is single, cohabiting, married.)

The point is the literature review/study is questionable. Not a surprise, but I'm noting it here for the record.

I will actually find myself, barring major disaster and/or anarchy, voting for Obama's second term. And relishing the sweet taste of schadenfreude when the GOP candidate gets spanked like Mondale in '84.

Another thing about the "pledge". I have no doubt that the "robust childbearing and reproduction" clause is referring to their desire to reverse Griswold v. Connecticut which struck down state bans on contraceptive devises and which recognized the Right to Privacy, which the wingnuts claim doesn't exist. They want the state to regulate every aspect of American's sex lives.

Appearing on CNBC this morning, presidential candidate Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) was asked about this morning’s dismal jobs report and whether higher unemployment rates might help her chances of winning in 2012. “Does it strike you that as the unemployment rate goes up, your chances of winning office also go up?” host Carl Quintanilla asked. “Well, that could be. Again, I hope so,” Bachmann replied.

She's disgusting.

Yeah, but that's not the real reason they're pissed. Limbaugh let the cat out of the bag, they're pissed because they see it as an attempt at "gun control." Republicans don't want anything done about the straw sale black market, so the same techniques they support to bust marijuana distribution networks are bad in this instance. Granted weapons aren't weed and what ATF did was nominally dangerous, but the southwest and mexico are already saturated with guns, it was trying to track and staunch the flow for illegal gun transfers that's the real sin here.

55 RadicalModerate  Fri, Jul 8, 2011 12:12:30pm

A couple things I immediately noticed regarding the pledge that Bachmann signed.

First of all, I noticed all of the footnotes on this so-called pledge - some 22 of them. Two pages consisting of the pledge itself, and the other two were the text of the footnotes. Reading through them, only three of these footnotes cited any actual sources. The others were listed opinion pieces, and in most cases were simply editorial commentaries.

Secondly, and more importantly, the vow title is "A Declaration of Dependence upon MARRIAGE and FAMiLY1". Which means that the candidates agree to be subservient to these. Marriage? Ok, no real problem there. However, FAMiLY? Notice that is the style rendered that designates this as "The FAMiLY Leader" organization (which is clarified in the footnote text). This isn't about protecting of the institute of families, but of Vander Plaats thirst for the power to dictate policy.

The other reason the study is false or a lie...

You won't find any records on the 1860 slave schedules that show which slaves were husband and wife...
if you can't even find a name on more than half of them, you sure won't find family unit status...

Sadly, I probably would have played along with this years ago, had I not started a family tree and run in to what I call the "Slavery Brick Wall"... the place you hit in the historical record that shows just how little a slave was cared about, hell, cows were recorded better... but I digress...

None of that "family" claptrap is ever about "families", it's about authoritarianism. These are people who will break up, estrange, and abuse their own families over things like Bible verses.

So it's no surprise they have such a cavalier attitude about African-American families. I really love it when white conservative bigots purport to tell us southern slavery is preferable to freedom. Then the act angry and confused because can only get 17 Black people to vote for them. :/
