10th U.S. President John Tyler’s family still alive with living memories #MAGA

CyberPlayGround NetHappenings©1989IN AMERICAN LIVING MEMORY How two of President John Tyler’s grandsons are still alive, 174 years later

John Tyler was the first vice president elevated to the presidency on the death of the chief executive and the first president to marry in the White House.

John Tyler served in the House, Senate and as vice president before becoming president. His biggest accomplishment was the annexation of Texas.

Nearly 175 years later, two of his grandchildren are still around. Harrison Ruffin Tyler, 89, is one of two living grandsons of President John Tyler, who was born in 1790, one year after George Washington was sworn in as president. Just three generations — President Tyler, his son Lyon Tyler, and grandson Harrison — span almost the entire history of the United States. We met Harrison and his son William at President Tyler’s Virginia estate. We asked William if people find it hard to believe that his father is the grandson of the 10th president. – family background

THEY TALK ABOUT VIRGINIA REELS – THEIR OWN IRISH FRENCH HISTORY

THE IRISH CONNECTION BETWEEN JAZZ, NEW ORLEANS SECOND LINE,  JIGS, AND REELS

JAZZ IS AN IRISH GALLIC WORD

A jig has a 6/8 tempo, while a reel has a 4/4 tempo.

Scarlett O’Hara danced the Virginia Reel to the tunes (not songs) of “Irish Washerwoman” and “White Cockade” in the movie Gone With the Wind.

-Seosamh Ui Sinan – the tune of “Marching Through Georgia” is sung to pretty vile, sectarian words in some parts of Scotland. It’s the musical equivalent of fighting talk.

President JOHN TYLER FAMILY’S SLAVES EXPLAINS WHY D.C. NEEDS TO BE A STATE House to vote on D.C. statehood

1835: In the House of Representatives, John Tyler proposed eliminating the slave trade (but not slavery) in the  District of Columbia.  “Mr Tyler stated that… [he] had a decided objection to the District of Columbia being made a slave mart, a depot for the slaves brought from the two neighboring states.”  (Tyler, v1.  p571)

 1835: Tyler describes an Abolitionist publication to a gathering of Virginians.  “Here…is a picture upon the  external covering, designed to represent each of you, gentlemen.  A scourge is in your hand, and three victims bound  and kneeling at your feet.  You are represented as demons in the shape of men; and by way of contrast, here stands [Abolitionist] Arthur Tappan, Mr. Somebody Garrison, or Mr. Foreigner Thompson, patting the greasy little  fellows on their cheeks and giving them most lovely kisses.”  (Tyler. v.1  p576)

 1836:  Tyler opposed the suggestion that slavery be eliminated in the District of Columbia, which had been ceded to the government by Maryland and Virginia. 

“To interfere with the subject of slavery, not only without,  but against the consent of the people of Maryland and Virginia, would be in flagrant violation of the public faith, an  abuse of the trust conferred on Congress by the cession, and hazardous of the peace and security of these two  states.” (Tyler. v1,  p581)

 1838:  Newly elected president of the Virginia Colonization Society Tyler compared this movement to send  free Blacks to Africa to the Abolition movement.  “Policy and humanity go hand and hand in this great work… Philanthropy , when separated from policy, is the most dangerous agent in human affairs.  It is no way distinguishable  from fanaticism.  It hears not, sees not, and understands not….  And is there not a spirit of that sort now at work in  our own fair land?  It is the antagonist of that which we cherish.  It invades our hearth, assails our domestic circles,  preaches up sedition, and encourages insurrection…  in a word, it is the spirit of abolition.”  (Tyler.  v1,  p568-9)

ROOTS OF RACISM HERE

 1838:  “[God] works most inscrutably to the understandings of men; – the negro is torn from Africa, a barbarian,  ignorant and idolatrous; he is restored civilized, enlightened, and a Christian.”  (Tyler.  v1, p569)

Trump just hired televangelical Paula White as his faith advisor, which doesn’t come as a surprise given that both of them worship the same god: Money.

JUMP JIM CROW & JIMMY CRACK CORN

A great opportunity for teaching, and for getting students (and others) to think and feel deeply about issues of representation.

Just because  the music classroom DOESN’T talk about history or culture — AND WE don’t deal with slavery until US history in 5th grade we can all know that:

Professor Dan Cassidy knows the amazing origins of the words “Jim Crow, how it became part of the language, and the name for racist laws and attitudes used to oppress blacks in the Southern United States in the 19th and 20th Centuries.

The Words “JIM CROW” AND “JIMMY CRACK CORN” are  Irish American Vernacular English.

Read about the hidden influence of Irish and Scots-Gaelic on what we call American English. Jump Jim Crow (Tiomp Díomá Crua) is bilingual double-tongued  chorus  of defiance against the “cruel hard despair,” the “cruel blues” of  slavery. 

Professor Dan Cassidy wrote © 6/4/05
Scotland ‘s darker role in the slave trade is also well known. Scots were influential in founding the Ku Klux Klan, including the traditional Scottish symbol of the burning cross and the KKK’s oath ceremony, which originated from a Highland custom.

Many of the “crackers” were Scots-Irish Protestants who had left Ireland in the 18th century.

#QAnon #TakeTheOath

“digital soldiers”

for Orange Hitler

HERE YOU GO – SEE HOW THIS WORKS?
– TRUMP BELIEVERS THINK TRUMP IS ANOINTED BY GOD, SUPPORTED BY GENERAL FLYNN’S DIGITAL ARMY OF #QANON OATH TAKERS.
– THE PRESIDENT’S BREAKFAST RUN BY CHRISTIAN WHITE POWER POLITICAL PARTY

For all the “Digital Soldiers” taking the Military Oath.

Your oath requires you to respect the Constitution.
In our Constitutional Democracy the leader of the State is elected.
No one picks a God to appoint him.
The groundless assertion some Deity placed a vicious psychopath as President means you deny the Separation of Church and State enshrined there.
Your oath requires you to respect and follow the law.
The President is an indicted conspirator, has had to bribe his way out of prosecutions, faces many more when he is forced to leave.
Trump has had close to 100 executive orders declared illegal.
How many lies do you have to ignore?
Do you preach this to your prisoners as part of your smug pursuit of their punishment?
If you can not tell right from wrong, truth from lies, racism from leadership, an epidemic from tests, bowing to Putin from foreign policy, you belong in no public position – even on a beat (because you wouldn’t understand the word.) ~ Jonathan A. Weiss Esq.

Trump Rallies are the Gov’t Sanctioned Whipping Posts for Media Entertainment

Delaware formally removed whippings from its criminal justice laws in 1972.

For a single offense, people could be lashed up to 40 times.
Delaware was the last state to stop tying people to whipping posts and lashing their bare backs as criminal punishment.

“The whipping post was part of the spectacle punishment used in Delaware at the time.  I know people who have seen people whipped at that whipping post and have never forgot it,” Young said. CNN

Old Sussex County Courthouse in Georgetown, Delaware
The post was installed on the public courthouse grounds in 1993.
The 8-foot tall concrete post standing beside the historic Sussex County Courthouse will be removed.

A replica of a stockade also was quietly removed from another private property near the post without fanfare, local officials said. The placard stated that in 1852 the law was changed to limit the maximum number of lashes one could receive in one instance to 60. 

It doesn’t mention that everyone was potentially subject to the punishment before the law began to evolve. First, children were exempted. Then, white women were exempted. Later, in 1889, Black women were spared the potential lash.

The placard also said that cameras were forbidden. It doesn’t mention that ban was because Delaware’s politicians were embarrassed by negative publicity coming from out of state, and, instead of abolishing the post, those leaders essentially criminalized photographing its use. DELAWARE ONLINE
