'Hate in their heart': Byron Donalds's office sent copy of Uncle Tom's Cabin
by Virginia Aabram, Congressional Reporter

Rep. Byron Donalds's (R-FL) office received a copy of Uncle Tom's Cabin on Thursday, according to the congressman, who accused the book's sender of having "hate in their heart."

The 1852 anti-slavery novel is one of the best-known abolitionist works of all time, but its portrayal of the deferential main character Uncle Tom, a slave, is used against conservative black people to accuse them of selling out to the Republican Party.

"Whoever sent this book did so w/ hate in their heart & the desire to depict me as a sellout," he tweeted, followed by a quote attributed to basketball player Bill Russell: "Concentration & mental toughness are the margins of victory."

Democrats being Democrats.
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

Put that Abolitionist AGITPROP in it's place. (The circular file).
While there might have been a few who routinely mistreated their slaves, it made no more sense to treat them badly than it does to take a sledgehammer to your John Deere.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

This kind of peer pressure among Blacks that you must stay part of the group no matter what they believe and do is a big reason I admire conservative Blacks. It's not easy to break from the group you otherwise identify with. It takes real strength to do it.

Uh, no, not really.  For one thing, John Deeres don’t reproduce.
