That’s a prototypical version of the new twenty dollar bill per the Modern Liberals website here. It’s Harriet Tubman of Underground Railroad fame, in case you don’t know, and I’m sure a number of you don’t know and couldn’t care less (it’s couldn’t, Hillary, not could).
The Department of Treasury announced this week it has plans to move the seventh president of the United States, The Indian Slayer (versus The King Slayer) Andrew Jackson, also known as Old Hickory, to the back of the bill and in his stead will be an image of Harriet Tubman, but maybe not the image provided by the Modern Liberals blog. That would be too offensive even though it is historically accurate just as the image of Aunt Jemima was historically accurate before The Quaker Oats Company replaced it with a more “politically correct” and less offensive image of the Black Pancake Auntie. Per Wikipedia here:
Just as the formula for the mix has changed several times over the years, so has the Aunt Jemima image been modified several times. In her most recent 1989 makeover, as she reached her 100th anniversary, the 1968 image was updated, with her kerchief removed to reveal a natural hairdo and pearl earrings. The logo much more resembled a modern homemaker than previous designs and carried far fewer racial connotations. This new look remains with the products to this day.
Mind you, I didn’t think up the Aunt Jemima comparison. The commentator “BackRowHeckler” from the racist cesspool comment section of Kunstler’s blog, Clusterfuck Nation, did in the comments to this blog post.
If BackRowHeckler’s comment is offensive, and it is, so too is Modern Liberals depiction of Harriet Tubman on the twenty dollar bill. Modern Liberals doesn’t get a pass because it pretends to care about Black people. That’s bullshit and a double standard.
I spend time at Clusterfuck Nation‘s comment section because I need to feel the pulse of the seething pent-up rage of the increasingly dispossessed looking for scapegoats in all the wrong places. And, I’m there to fuck things up for “them.” They are a Motley Crue, to be sure.
As you can imagine, they were up in arms and harping on and on about the audacious effrontery (according to them, not me, or not me for their reasons) of removing Old Hickory from the front of the bill and moving him to the back only to be replaced by an uppity slave who didn’t know her place.
Harriet Tubman on the twenty dollar bill doesn’t offend me. I don’t consider it an affront. What concerns me is not only why some do consider it an affront and why they’re insulted by it, but also, the stark hypocrisy of those who chose to do it. I have to question their motivation, so, I crafted the following response to the issue that slices right through the racism of The Left and The Right. Please read it with an open mind. Read it several times over and let it sink in and then respond respectfully & intelligently if you so please. I encourage your constructive commentary.
Putting Harriet Tubman on the twenty dollar bill is an incredibly insensitive, denigrating and racially-motivated act on the part of so-called Liberals. It’s a credit economy, not a cash economy. Cash is pretty much irrelevant these days to those who are “going places.” Bits and Bytes are what matter most. Don’t believe me? When was the last time Obama’s daughters broke out a twenty to pay for something? I bet the answer is, NEVER!!! In fact, I bet they have never seen or touched a twenty. And by virtue of that, they are most assuredly not Black except for the color of their skin, and in my book, the only book that matters, that doesn’t make them Black.
Those who still engage in cash transactions are the ones who have been Left Behind — they’re the permanently disabled underclass. And that permanently disabled underclass, enabled by the Liberals as much as the Conservatives if not more mind you, is significantly comprised of highly impoverished Blacks. Harriet Tubman on the twenty, considering the aforementioned, is an extremely sadistic, cruel, cynical slap in the face to the contemporary slaves the “Liberals” have created. It’s tantamount to perpetual metaphorical psychical waterboarding — rubbing it in your victim’s face every day in perpetuity. What a bunch of sick fucking bastards.
It’s not just this latest gesture. Don’t think the Eskimo Pie/Klondike Bar POTUS isn’t laughing his ass off forcing this impoverished class to pay premiums for what is essentially Medicaid that was heretofore a taxpayer-funded healthcare program despite its neglect and inadequacy as such. At least Nero murdered, albeit gruesomely, those he deplored, but not Obama & Co. He/They prefer endless torture and degradation — a very slow, but extremely painful, death lasting decades.
