“THAT THESE DEAD SHALL NOT HAVE DIED IN VAIN”
by Sharon Rondeau
(Mar. 25, 2015) — In a recent interview, anti-illegal-alien amnesty black activist Ted Hayes told The Post & Email that he believes the issue of slavery in the U.S. has never been reconciled, has led to the enormous influx of illegal aliens into the U.S., and that blacks are hurt the most by insecure borders and the resultant “ethno-racial cleansing.”
Hayes maintains that both the Republican and Democrat Parties have abandoned blacks and that the Democrats are now exploiting illegal aliens as the new “minority,” replacing what he described as their previous courting of blacks for votes. He believes that “socialists” have advocated for “rights” for illegal aliens which do not exist and which threaten to bring about America’s demise.
He is calling on Congress to hold “hearings and investigations to determine the astronomical impact of comprehensive immigration reform (CIR), past-present-future, positive or negative upon the American black, US citizens, so called African-Americans, Negroes, Colored Peoples, etc., i.e., descendants of chattel slaves and Jim Crow survivors.”
The owner of several websites, Hayes created “The Moratorium Proposition” as a “morally correct action” to supplant the rhetoric of activists such as Al Sharpton who Hayes believes divide, rather than unite, Americans. He is seeking volunteers to launch local chapters of The Moratorium Proposition in all 50 states in order to preserve “one nation under God.”
“Black lives matter,” Hayes told us, although with a different meaning than that signified by the popular movement which arose from the killings of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO and Eric Garner in Staten Island, NY last year.
In his famous Gettysburg Address, Lincoln said:
Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.
But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate — we can not consecrate — we can not hallow — this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
“…the Great Liberator duly warns us that should We the People of the founding father’s Posterity falter and fail in this sacred, and noble duty, then the American Dream experiment…indeed, the weird, human government aberration of all time, will be over and perish.”
The governmental controls and socialist fiscal crisis; the Islamic-Jihad-Muslim incursion; the civilian, non-military invasion and occupation of US land, erroneously called “illegal immigration”; along with the decay of American societal and civil fabric, and of course, the specter of fatal damage to the nation caused by Barack Hussein Obama; etc, all have their roots in what Abraham Lincoln admonished and warned us about…which is, the consequences of failure to finish the Contractual and Covenanted business with GOD concerning chattel slavery and its’ aftermath.”
On November 20, 2014, Obama announced that he planned to grant deferred deportation status to potentially millions of illegals as a result of their familial relationship to participants in DACA, a program he ordered created in June 2012 by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to allow illegal aliens under the age of 31 to remain in the country under certain conditions when they normally would face removal proceedings.
Obama claimed he was forced to act because Congress had not. His actions are currently under challenge from a group of 26 states in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas and the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans.
Hayes describes Obama as “anti-Black,” “wicked and dreaded,” and a “phoney Christian.”
Regarding “reparations” for slavery, Hayes has written a proposal in response to that which Rep. John Conyers introduced in Congress in 1999 which names “the guilty ones” and “calls for acknowledgment of the responsible and culpable entities in the following chronological order, they are: the nations, tribes, Clans of West Africa; Mecca of the Muslims; the Roman Catholic Church; the Portugal, Spain; England, Europe, and finally the United States of America.”
On November 21, a presidential memorandum was published stating that Obama planned to assemble a task force on “creating welcoming communities” for immigrants and refugees.
Hayes and legislative research assistant Susan Payne listened to three conference calls which divulged the regime’s plans to bring in millions of illegal aliens and award them federal benefits and create “a country within a country” in multiple urban areas which Hayes perceives will impact blacks significantly.
Under Obama, deportations have plummeted, and the new priorities set forth by his November 20 executive actions direct virtually all resources toward deporting only the most hardened criminal illegals.
In 2013, the Obama regime released more than 68,000 convicted criminal illegal aliens into American communities without notifying the public and in violation of federal law. Last year, another 30,000 were released from ICE custody.
Hayes believes that white guilt over black slavery has never been adequately purged, with Obama’s “presidency” the result. He told us that the “constitutional business of slavery” needs to be “finished.” “We must finish the cause for which these boys gave their lives,” he said of those who died during the American Civil War, both white and black.
“Obama has turned the civil rights movement into an ‘illegal alien movement,'” Hayes told us, speaking of Obama’s presence and remarks in Selma, AL on March 7, the 50th anniversary of a bloody confrontation between a white county sheriff, his deputies, citizens he had deputized, and blacks marching across the Edmund Pettus Bridge petitioning for voting rights. “What’s really bad is the fact that the African-American so-called ‘civil rights leaders,’ including John Lewis, who got his head crushed, sat there and allowed this man to take the suffering of our people – black and white in this country – and give it to a bunch of illegal aliens, international border criminals,” he told us. “What really bothers me more than anything else is the fact that ‘conservative’ black Republicans and Tea Partiers are horrifically silent, criminally silent on this issue. They say nothing on this issue.”
“The black conservatives tend to want to spend all their time showing white conservatives how ‘conservative’ they are. White conservatives do not need to hear black people telling them about conservatism, because white people told us about conservatism; they taught us what it is. White conservatives need to hear from black conservatives as to how to get these conservative principles en masse into your community. How do we do that? Black conservatives don’t have a clue. All they can do is knock black people for being stupid, being on the Democrat plantation, having babies…the whole thing.
The Post & Email: Why do you say that?
Ted Hayes: He’s a smart brain surgeon; no one denies that. But he knows nothing about running a company! He knows nothing about making hard-nosed decisions other than on the operating table. He’s a wonderful guy; don’t misunderstand me. He would ruin other people’s lives if he did that. I could see him as surgeon general.
Like Barack Obama, he has no power base. All the presidents prior to this man could go into a meeting and could say, “We’re going to do it this way.” George Bush could say, “We’re going to do it this way…” “I don’t think so, Mr. President…” “We’re going to do it this way…My daddy’s behind me.” But Obama has no power; Dr. Carson has no power. He’ll be ruled by whomever puts him in office.
But I digress. Black conservatives do not have a plan. I do, though. I do have a plan.
I have tried for years to get some prominent black conservatives who are more known than I, more “establishment”-looking than I – I’m a street-looking guy – they’re smarter than I – to become the lightning rod to bring us all together, create a manifesto with the ultimate objective for our people with a plan and a strategy and a timeline as to how and when we reach that and become a responsible body politic whereby Republicans, Democrats, anyone who wants to help black people – can do so. I could never get anyone to do that.
Sooooo…the Lord has told me…Dude, I did not give you this knowledge and information for you to sit around and criticize other people about how they’re not doing what they should be doing. If you know so much, Big-Mouth, you get out there and you do it. So I’m asserting myself – and that’s what this rally is going to be partly about – ultimately, I will become the alternative voice to Al Sharpton and the race-baiters in this country. At the same time, I will be a lightning rod that will pull the black conservatives together into a body politic. The next step is they will then reach out, if “Black Lives Matter,” to the liberal black Democrats and bring them to this body politic – if Black Lives Matter – and then we together will bring the country to a place of peace and resolution.
[Editor’s Note: By “rally,” Hayes is referring to a launch of The Moratorium Proposition in Phoenix, AZ which had been scheduled for April 18 but has been moved to sometime in May to allow more time for planning.]
The illegal-alien element will be dealt with accordingly – it has to be dealt with – and of course, the Muslim element will have to be dealt with as well. Then I believe that We the People will have a movement whereby we will never, ever repeat what we did with Barack Obama in this country and that we will have learned our lesson. We must heal from the slave-race wound of our ancestors.
The Post & Email: It appears that race relations have worsened since Obama took office, even though he would claim differently.
Ted Hayes: Race relations in the country have gotten very strained since Mr. Obama [took office.] On the other hand, he did not cause the wound. That’s how he got in. I see Obama as a vector. I see the Muslim movement, the illegal alien movement, and the invasion of the socialists as vectors that have gotten into the wound. Obama is like the fatal vector that is going to finish us off if we do not extract him from that wound.
The only way we’re going to end this is we have to ignore, on the one hand, Obama, the socialists, and the illegal aliens; we have to put them aside. These are things that God has sent upon our nation. It’s a natural law of the universe: if a wound is open and untreated, the natural law of the universe says that a vector will come to that wound and disease, and that wound will cause gangrene and kill the body. That’s natural law, what God created.
So in the human realm, we must recognize that our country, the United States of America, did not start slavery. It’s a misnomer that the white man started slavery. We inherited slavery from the British Empire on July 2-4, 1776. We inherited it. Therefore, we are not guilty of slavery, but we are responsible for what we have inherited.
When you buy a house, when you marry, when you contract, you do it for better or for worse. You can’t just say, “I accept the good part and want nothing to do with the bad part.” No, you’re in it now.
That’s why the 740,000 young white boys – plus 38,000 black boys – who died in that civil war were innocent. They had nothing to do with slavery, especially the boys in the North who probably never saw a black man in their life. So it wasn’t about that at all; it was about something else. And those boys suffered what our Founding Fathers failed to finish in 1776.
As you recall, the Founding Fathers were divided over whether or not to include chattel slavery in the Declaration of Independence. Thomas Jefferson did, but the others said, “Take it out, because it’s offensive to the South; this is not the time.” We almost did not have the birth of a nation over this issue of chattel slavery, and most people are not aware of that. But Somebody else more important than us is aware of it, and that’s God Himself, because both the North and the South made God the central figure of the Declaration of Independence; they were saying He created all human beings equally, yet they, collectively, were holding another group of human beings as chattel human property, which was very offensive to God. He takes that personally. These are His children, and they included His name to something that was evil. So through the decades, God was trying to get America’s attention: “End this; stop this now; clear My name.” They didn’t do it; hence, the Civil War came and chastised the nation.
Abraham Lincoln warned us and said, “Now, folks, if we don’t finish what these boys started, that same God in the Declaration of Independence will bring us to that point again and the nation will perish. One hundred fifty years later, look what we have in this country: we are facing the end.
