Crom Carmichael Outlines the Many Unthruths That Dr. Ibram X. Kendi Chooses as Truth While Democrats Historically Prove Racist

 

Live from Music Row Friday morning on The Tennessee Star Report with Michael Patrick Leahy – broadcast on Nashville’s Talk Radio 98.3 and 1510 WLAC weekdays from 5:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. – guest host Christina Botteri welcomed the original all-star panelist Crom Carmichael to the studio who outlined several issues wrong with the 1619 Project and how it was the Democrat Party that has historically always been against minorities.

Botteri: In the studio with me, the original all-star panelist. And we were having an animated discussion over the break about a great many things. But Crom, you wanted to circle back to some of the things that we were talking about in the previous segment with Dr. Ibram Kendi. Tell us about that.

Carmichael: Dr. Kendi is a big supporter of Critical Race Theory and is a big supporter of the 1619 Project. And the 1619 Project essentially posits is that our country started in 1619 when the first Black slaves, and there were between 20 and 40 who arrived in Jamestown and that’s when the country started.

And that all of what happened since then in our country is because of slavery. And that our Declaration of Independence is because of slavery. Our Constitution is because of slavery. Our economic growth is because of slavery and all these different things.

They ascribe all that. But slavery was not unique to this geography. And I say this geography because we weren’t a country until well after that. We had to fight a war of independence to become our own country and to have our own laws, and not live under British laws.

The original slavery in this country was a British institution. It wasn’t a constitutional institution because we didn’t have a Constitution. But what they posit is that all this economic growth and everything wouldn’t have happened if it weren’t for slavery, and we wouldn’t have the government institutions.

So they say that all of our government institutions are based on slavery also. Well, there was a lot of slavery in the world for hundreds of years prior to 1619. And if slavery ends up generating the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, our form of government, and our robust economy, if it does all those things, then why didn’t it do it in other countries that had even more slavery?

They should even be more robust than ours. But it didn’t happen in the other countries because the 1619 proposition is fundamentally flawed in kind and Kendi promotes that as truth. When somebody gets up and promotes something that is false as truth, we call that person Anthony Fauci. (Botteri laughs)

Botteri: Duh duh duh.

Carmichael: (Chuckles) So Kendi promotes a Critical Race Theory that maintains that there is systemic racism. Now, I will argue that there is institutional racism and there’s always been institutional racism.

And the institutional racism that we’ve had has been something that the Democrat Party has pushed for 200 or 300 years. The Klu Klux Klan was at that time what Antifa is today. It was the militant wing of the Democrat Party, the Klu Klux Klan.

It’s amazing to me that Biden goes to Tulsa and says what he says, not recognizing, I guess he didn’t even know that it was the Klu Klux Klan that did in Tulsa 100 years ago and what happened to the Black business community and the Black people in Tulsa.

It was the Klu Klux Klan. The Klu Klux Klan was formed by the Democrat Party. It was exalted at many Democrat conventions during those years. The Jim Crow laws that Biden says are terrible, those are Democrat institutions.

And so here you have Kendi, who is talking about the history of our country but he completely ignores the fact that the Democrat Party was the party of slavery and is the party today that forces Black and Hispanic children to go to terrible schools.

He ignores every bit of that because he has a different agenda. And part of his agenda is to make $25,000. for each one of his speeches. So he’s a very wealthy guy and he’s a very famous guy.

The book I’m reading right now is a book about Muhammad Ali. It’s called The Left Hook That Dazed Ali and Destroyed King’s Dream. Because Ali could have chosen to support Martin Luther King. King’s dream speech was in 1963. That was the year of the dream speech. That was about the same year that Ali became a Muslim.

Botteri: After, by the way, Democrats killed the Civil Rights Act I think that would be for the second time. The Civil Rights Act was brought up by Republicans in 1957 for the first time. It took several iterations before it finally passed.

Crom Carmichael Explains How Gun Laws Today Are Those of Jim Crow

Crom Carmichael Explains How Gun Laws Today Are Those of Jim Crow

 

Live from Music Row Monday morning on The Tennessee Star Report with Michael Patrick Leahy – broadcast on Nashville’s Talk Radio 98.3 and 1510 WLAC weekdays from 5:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. – host Leahy welcomed the original all-star panelist Crom Carmichael to the studio who outlined the convoluted gun requirements to obtaining a firearm in certain blue states while making it harder for lower-income people to own, and how these resemble Jim Crow voting laws from the past.

(Maxine Waters clip plays)

Leahy: That is Representative Maxine Waters, who is Black and who is a Democrat and was up in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, the site of the second police shooting of a young Black man or the shooting of a young Black man who was resisting arrest and sounds like inciting violence to me. In Florida Ron DeSantis doesn’t like that kind of idea Crom.

Carmichael: What Maxine Waters said there was, we need to stay in the streets, correct?

Leahy: That is what she said. Now, the Constitution allows us to peaceably, assemble to address the government with our grievances. That’s what the Constitution allows. What Ron DeSantis and the Republicans in Florida have done is they’ve passed legislation that essentially says that if your protest turns to intimidation that is by definition of their law, not peaceful.

And so mostly peaceful in Florida won’t fly anymore. And if it’s two or more people, two or more people. I remember seeing videos, for example, of all the riots all over the country. But I also saw videos in Washington, D.C., outside of the Capitol, where you had some protesters, and they were just like the protesters in so many cities across the country that were acting intimidatingly against the Capitol Hill police. In Florida that will be an arrestable offense. That will be a felony, not a misdemeanor.

Leahy: There’s no state law, apparently that addresses that in Minnesota although there are certain constitutional elements to it. Here’s the story about Waters, from Breitbart. Waters in her remarks to reporters, that a protest in Brooklyn Center, where thousands have been protesting the death of Daunte Wright encouraged people to ‘take to the streets if Chauvin (Derk Chauvin the officer charged with, I think second-degree murder in the death of George Floyd back in May) we’re looking for a guilty verdict,’ Waters said.

‘And we are looking to see if all of the talk that took place and has been taking place. And after they saw what happened to George Floyd, if nothing does happen, then we know that we’ve got to not only stay in the street, but we’ve got to fight for justice.’ That’s what she said. That sounds like inciting violence to me.

Carmichael: Sure does. I would like to compare that to anything that Trump said. Trump didn’t say anything like that.

Leahy: Nothing like that.

Carmichael: And they’re claiming that Trump said this. But if I could, Michael, let me do a Jen Psaki here and circle back.

Leahy: Jen Psaki, the incompetent Press Secretary for Joe Biden.

Carmichael: No, she’s actually quite competent. She just provides zero information. She’s very competent. She does have information. She does exactly what the Biden administration wants her to do.

Leahy: Which is to give no information.

Carmichael: Which is to provide nothing. But anyway, let me give you some more information. We’ve talked about this previously, the Jim Crow laws. First of all the Jim Crow laws were passed post-Civil War by the Democrats in the South. This is extremely important that we recognize as it was the Democrats in the South who passed the Jim Crow laws. What did the Jim Crow laws do? They did two primary things. Anyway, the two things: one is they imposed poll taxes to make it expensive to vote.

Leahy: Right.

Carmichael: And the other is they set up certain standards and certain procedures, things that you had to pass in order to have the right to vote. And those were disproportionate. They truly did subdue the Black vote.

Leahy: Absolutely.

Carmichael: Absolutely did that. Now, let’s look at Illinois, and let’s look at Indiana. Of the people in Illinois, less than have a firearm. In Indiana 20 percent have firearms. And in Indiana, the cost of applying for a firearm is $12. In Illinois, it’s $450. Democrats control Illinois. Are Democrats trying to keep low-income people from owning a firearm?

Leahy: From legally owning.

Carmichael: From legally owning. Great point. The violence in Illinois is terrible. The violence in Chicago is terrible. The people committing the violence, do not own legal guns.

Leahy: And there are usually illegal guns.

Carmichael: These are mostly illegal guns. And so in Illinois, it is the Democrats who are trying to have a poll tax as it were on the right on the right of self-protection. Now in Illinois, you have to have 16 hours of training. If you live in the city of Chicago, you have to drive a long long way away to get training. But you have to have 16 hours. And that’s also expensive because you have to pay for the training.

Leahy: Pay for the training.

Carmichael: But that means if you tried to do it in two full days, eight hours a day, you’d have to drive someplace and stay overnight. So what they’re doing is they’re making it as difficult as possible in Illinois for a low-income Black person in Chicago to own a gun.

Leahy: Legally.

Carmichael: Legally. That is the definition. What the Democrats are doing in Illinois to keep black people from protecting themselves is the essence of Jim Crow.

Leahy: It’s a Second Amendment suppression.

Carmichael: It is Second Amendment suppression. No question about that. But it is the tactics. It is the tactics that they’re using. They’re making it expensive, and they’re making it almost like you have to jump through all kinds of hoops. And the results are that Black people, especially in Chicago, the honest Black people, which is the vast majority they can’t afford the time or the money to protect themselves. And the police and the mayor simply aren’t able to do it. For whatever reason, they aren’t doing it. And so this is resulting in murder. This is resulting in death. And it’s all Jim Crow gun laws. Jim Crow Gun laws.

Leahy: You make a very fine point there, Crom.
