Whited Sepulchre Republican Jon Hubbard Thinks Slavery was “A Blessing”

October 6, 2012

He’s just mad he never got to be a slavemaster himself.

…and seriously, those damn black people should be grateful to people like him for enslaving their ancestors, raping their women, selling human beings like cattle, and beating and even killing them if they didn’t do what their masters said.

Because eventually, says Hubbard in his new book (read about it in the Huffington Post), those people–well, their descendants, anyway–would have the “privilege” of becoming citizens in the nation that did all those horrific, immoral things to them.

Bonus!

And naturally, Hubbard says all this obscene stuff in the name of Christianity. And Christians everywhere rise up and denounce him and call the judgement of God down upon him for this utter, utter blas–wait. Where are they, anyway, all those condemning voices?

    Yep, where are they? Besides the evident racism underlying his remarks (and the complete disregard for the large portion of the captive and enslaved who never survived the Middle Passage), Hubbard by rights ought to be lambasted by genuine Bible believers for idolatry as well — he’s made an idol of his nation (or what he construes as its virtues).

    Too bad he doesn’t realize that the nation he actually idolizes went out of business in 1865.

      He and everyone who thinks as he does is positively obscene. And you’re right — the rightwingnut “Christians” worship their ideal of a country — not God, and certainly not the real country.
