Spike Lee was the guest of Joe Madison on his Sirius XM radio show where he declared a litany of false history and propaganda right out of the Marxist playbook.
“The foundation of the United States of America is immoral, from the get-go. The foundation has been shaky from day one. This country was based upon the stealing of the land from native people and genocide against native people, coupled with slavery.” Spike Lee said. “Whenever this day comes, when we go back to supposed normalcy. What they called normal was abnormal.”
There is so much to impact in this faulty statement. The history of the world is one of progress, and with progress came towns and cities that had to be governed. To claim that the first European settlers “stole” the land from tribes of nomad Indians is ludicrous.
The other important point to make is about the American Revolution. Lately, we are seeing the BLM movement attempt to justify their own violence by claiming they are doing the same thing as the first American patriots.
New York BLM leader Hawk Newsome made a disturbing comparison after Fox News’ Martha MacCallum asked him why he was threatening violence.
“Wow, it’s interesting that you would pose that question like that because this country is built upon violence. What was the American Revolution, what’s our diplomacy across the globe? We go in and we blow up countries and we replace their leaders with leaders who we like. So for any American to accuse us of being violent is extremely hypocritical,” Newsome said.
The American Revolution was lead by moral men who had no choice but to respond to England who resorted to using their military, first. The Continental Congress voted and formed an army. If anything, the BLM violence does remind us of one revolution, the French Revolution, which was ruled by “the mob” who resorted to using the Guillotine. It was one of the bloodiest and evil revolutions in history.
But let’s get back to Spike Lee who had a few more gems to drop during his interview.
“We’ve been patriotic for this country from day one,” said Lee of black Americans. “We’ve been here 401 years and we still haven’t got, you know, a full citizenship. If that was the case, we wouldn’t be getting shot down in the street left and right.”
Lee also stated the death of George Floyd is linked to the enslavement of black people. Lee wore a black baseball hat with “1619” embroidered on it. It’s an apparent nod to Nikole Hannah-Jones, the creator of the New York Times’ “1619 Project,” which won a 2020 Pulitzer Prize for commentary.
However, the Times had to acknowledge that the central claim in Hannah-Jones’s 1619 Project is false. In fact, everything the BLM movement is selling is based on falsehoods and lies.
People on social media didn’t wait long to give Spike Lee a rude awakening.
“He should just shut up. He has no clue about all the people in our country who fought against slavery, and who didn’t believe in it, including the south. He also doesn’t know the history of other countries who practiced it for centuries!” tweeted Melody7473.
“A country that Spike Lee has gotten very wealthy from being a citizen of. Like I said, I don’t give a f–k how this country was built, it built like every other country in the world. I have no guilt for it,” tweeted Twitter user “Melanie.”
Americans blasted Spike Lee for being a successful African-American who got rich and famous thanks to the American way of life he so loathes.
