The president of the Woman's Republican Club of New Orleans this week defended a lawmaker from her party who believes that schools should teach the "good" of slavery.

In a post to Facebook on Sunday, Martha Huckabay -- a former delegate for Donald Trump -- lashed out at a CNN segment which criticized Louisiana state Rep. Ray Garofalo (R-LA), who said that children should learn "about everything dealing with slavery, the good, the bad, the ugly."

Huckabay took issue with GOP state Rep. Stephanie Hilferty after she criticized Garofalo.

"You are right Stephanie Hilferty 'none of us were around when slavery occurred,'" Huckabay wrote. "Slavery goes all they way back to biblical times, and if you've read your Bible, you would know that many of the slaves loved their masters, and their masters loved them, and took very good care of them, and their families."

She continued: "The question he should have pushed back her way was was their [sic] marriages in slavery? Were families and precious babies born (and I am talking about LIFE itself) into or out of slavery? Were slave owners ever known to be 'GOOD' to their slaves? Were slaves ever known to LOVE their masters?"

Huckabay went on to suggest "that some slaves never wanted to leave theIr plantation because it had become their home."

"We need to STOP allowing liberals that have been indoctrinated through marxisum [sic] run our House and Senate," she added. "These people do not see threw [sic] clear lenses. Their views are scued [sic] and very one sided. Slavery has been around since before Jesus Christ came to take away the sins of the world. Today's 'slavery' topic is a leftist trap! It is neither true nor based on real facts."

This is a good example of the ignorance and bigotry of the Christian right. Yes, there was a school of thought in the antebellum period that claimed slavery was beneficent to the slaves and slaves were happy. This was a rationalization that slaveowners used to justify the crimes against humanity they were committing. 

The fact that someone in 2021 would use this rationalization is just proof of how incredibly ignorant some of these people are.

The miscues in this paragraph show her to be an ignorant person.  Just because it was around before their beloved Messiah does not make it right.  Would she be so keen if it had been HER family that was chained beaten, bred and raped?  People like this drive me batty.

Love the phonic spelling of Marxism.  Really adds a level of sophistication to her argument. jrSmiley_98_smiley_image.gif

GOP and those who ended slavery:

"Sorry we didn't kill more of you when we kicked your asses"

Sadly true, frankly the north went too easy on the south IMO. But oh well, what’s done is long since done.

She seems to be a graduate of Trump University so her being a delegate is expected. 

Ah yes, all the good things about slavery, free room and board I suppose tops the list for her.

I wonder how keen she would be to get herself and family into slavery. I mean, the perks must outweigh the negatives right?

After recently ( and for the first time ) reading Harriet Beecher Stow's, "Uncle Tom's Cabin," published in 1852, I can understand the complexities of those times, coupled with the ingrained economics in the Southern Antebellum Society.

Times have changed.  To fast forward to the 21st Century and the recent so called conservative summations of non-apology for Slavery it is even more clear for me to understand and comprehend how it was possible for the Nazis to change and control the national politic in 1930s Germany.  This is not ignorance, this is a plan and a platform to de-democratize America and set the stage for an Autocracy.

Hell, I've seen confederate flags fly in Pennsylvania....and if I recall my history correctly, was firmly on the side of the Union during the War of Southern Rebellion

Several years ago in Pennsylvania, went to an area called The Beaver Dam.  Very rural, very old.  Had a brick red church next to the cemetery.  Saw five graves next to each other, all of them very young men, all of them died on July 1-3, 1863.  These were young men from that area, mustered and sent to Gettysburg.  I can not imagine the grief and heartache of those times for those people.

Confederate flags in Pennsylvania.  Honestly.  WTF.  MAGA and all the rest.

Another example of why today's Republican Party poses such a great danger to the American way of life.

Is it any wonder that the once Grand Old Party of Abraham Lincoln is now known merely as the gop?

Small g, rhymes with flop and slop. We gotta stop!
