Danny Glover: ‘The Second Amendment Was Created to Protect Slavery’

During an event on Thursday to honor Martin Luther King Jr, award winning actor and humanitarian Danny Glover told Texas A&M students  that the danny gloversecond amendment was created to protect slavery.

“I don’t know if you know the genesis of the right to bear arms,” he said. “The Second Amendment comes from the right to protect themselves from slave revolts, and from uprisings by Native Americans.

“A revolt from people who were stolen from their land or revolt from people whose land was stolen from, that’s what the genesis of the second amendment is,” he continued.

Glover is certainly not the first person to make the point that the second amendment was crafted to protect slavery. Liberal talk show host Thom Hartmann made the point on his show this week that the main point of the second amendment wasn’t to protect Americans from a tyrannical government, but to put down slave rebellions.

On Hartmann’s The Big Picture with Thom Hartmann, he said, “But I want to tell you something you don’t know about the Second Amendment ,something that’s been lost in the pages of history – that is very crucial to informing today’s current gun debate. And that’s this: The real reason the Second Amendment was ratified, and why it says ‘State’ instead of ‘Country,’ was to preserve the Slave Patrol Militias in the Southern States, which was necessary to get Virginia’s vote. Founders Patrick Henry, George Mason, and James Madison were totally clear on that…and we all should be too…Today’s Second Amendment is linked to our nation’s disturbing history of slavery. In the Beginning, there were the Militias. In the South, they were also called the ‘Slave Patrols,’ and they were regulated by the states.”

    Danny Glover is absolutely correct. I have posted similar info previously on this site and others. We Black folks must dig into HISTORY and learn more about what has put us in the condition we are in today. It’s NOT ….”all Obama’s fault.”

    And by learning HISTORY, your mind will become enlightened as to why some of the GOP peanut gallery pundits are having fits and telling lies about the President’s “gun safety” EXEC. ORDERS. Many of them have not gotten over the first Civil War.

    In fact, back when they were discussing the AMENDMENTS, some of the plantation owners were afraid that the military that they had then would not be able to withstand a “slave revolt” or any uprising from Indians…so that is why they have the 2nd AMENDMENT…for the “Slave Patrols.” You might call it “the first police forces.”

    Just as there are “climate change deniers”….there are also those who are “Black History deniers.” They both push their “selective” ideas about what the real deal is…as they see it. But it is just their own “selections” of info….not necessarily factual proofs.

    Some folks are attacking Danny Glover for merely telling the facts about both issues. He is a fighter against global warming. And he has been very outfront about Black History. But there are folks who prefer to the darkness of ignorance…as long as they can keep promoting their own biased ideas.

    Some people get caught up into one way of looking at an issue…and then they spend lots of time trying to find anything that will help boost up what they already believe. They don’t want to be confused with facts, evidence, or historical data.

    I hate it when my people signify when they just learned something…instead of signifying, understand how it is used against you today…

    Remember, the gun laws in this country clearly states anyone who has a felony cannot legally own a gun…

    That means that 95% of Black males cannot own a gun because they were scared to pleading guilty to something they did or did not do…

    When you take the gun’s out of one race hands, and put it in aother race hands, then you have the second amendment all over again…

    How do you think guns end up in the hood? the perverted catholic is allowed to sell them to us, and then we get caught and do time…

    The gun laws is designed for the following purposes:

    1) keep guns out of the hands of Black folks…
    2) keep guns in the hands of white folks in-case of a race war…
    3) it is a financial investment for whites; meaning, they biy purchase a gun, and then when they need money, they sell to Black folks, who will evetually get caught with the gun…

    We need to get congress to pass a gun law that reads:

    1) If you purchase a gun (legally), and if that gun is used in a crime, and you did not report that gun lost or stolen, then you will be prosecuted for the crime that was commited with your gun…

    2) You cannot sell or trade the gun that you purchased, and if you want to desposed your gun, then you will have to take it to the local police department or back to the store/dealer…

    You see, these perverted catholic will never write laws that will lock all of them up…just look at the child-molestations and rape laws that these perverts commit everyday…

    So wake up people, and understand that while you sleep, someone is being paid to think, and these perverted catholic are changing the rules against us every day…

    History is so important . This is whites tell you to get over slavery and remain ignorant. The affects of slavery still impact us. Do not trust white history books.

    I would life to hear Mr. Glover speak. This new info regarding the real reason the second amendment came into law reveals why the rabid protectionism of bearing arms increased when President Obama was newly elected. Funny how the news hardly show blacks advocating and demanding gun rights, only whites. Observe undercurrents of fear.a

      Most african americans cannot even bear a fire arm due to their criminal records, why would they advocate for gun rights that they already lost?

    Wow…I have never seen a bigger collection of uninformed people.
    I used to like Dany, I can’t believe he would spout something so incorrect out of his mouth.
    Words cannot describe how flabbergasted I am that Danny would say this, and people would make the clueless comments below it.

      @james:

      You have the Truth mixed up with uninformed!

      Mr. Glover is CORRECT with the REAL meaning of the 2nd amendment! I guess you forgot, that during our forced enslavement, Blacks were not allowed to have guns; let alone carry them!!!

      They also did not want Blacks to have guns when they joined the military; this is why Blacks were put on the FRONT LINE, during those ‘uncivil wars’ we had to fight and win for you yankees!!! The yankee soldiers FEARED a Black man with a gun because [they] thought the Black soldiers would rebel and shoot the shyt out of them.

      You caucasoids are so da*mn dumb when it comes to the Truth. Why do you think caucasoids are buying up the gun stores, today? Because they are afraid of a REBELLION!!! They know, they are only 8% of the world’s population and are the True minorities, here in racist amerikkka!!!

      Blacks and non-white people dominate the world (92%), and this is why amerikkka, is occupying 130 countries, RIGHT NOW!!! HeII, they occupy ALL the countries in Afrika, except for Kemet!!! They still THINK Kemet is not part of Afrika!!!

      THEY LOVE THEIR WEAPONS, SO THEY CAN CONTINUE TO DOMINATE AND SPREAD white supremacy WORLD-WIDE!!!

      Why do you think they want these dumb down negroids to turn in their guns? When y’all go berserk on these chicken-hearted negroids, y’all know, they will be DEFENSELESS!!! This is also a plan, so Blacks will have no choice, but to be treated like new age slaves. Some negroids can’t SEE this Truth when it’s happening RIGHT IN FRONT OF THEIR EYES.

      YOU MUST OVERstand, THAT LAWS ARE ONLY WRITTEN FOR YOU caucasoid’s PROTECTION!!!

      BLACKS ARE STILL FIGHTING AND DYING FOR THE SAME LAWS; YOU PEOPLE ENJOY!!!

    He’s right, it makes sense. However gun ownership works both ways. The last time Blacks were explicitly banned from owning guns, was during the jim crow era. Now think about that.

    Danny Glover not only is retarded he is also a hypocrat, because he owns guns. Also, he is actor people, more likely paid to say what ever he says in public, sorry but thats how it works.

    The second amendment was implemented so the people could protect defend themselves and be able to overthrow an tyrant goverment if there was one (Read the declaration of Independence)

    @Truth Hurts, If Mr Glover is Retarded, why does he own guns!!? He owns guns coz unlike most n****s he never committed a crime or was too smart to get caught(as it is a Felony to OWN a FIREARM while having a Criminal Record), please explain how a couple of barettas, winchesters etc could overthrow a tyrannical government who have access to the same guns you have, some more guns you don’t have, bombs and explosives you don’t have and Bio Chemicals which you cannot attain without being branded a Terrorist! Forget the explanation coz I know your answer cannot justify your Ignorance!

  13. Its Time To Wake Up February 2, 2013 at 11:40 pm

    OuBlack people will not wake up. They bought in too far. They ignore the Spirit calling them back to their true selves. This is way beyond just not accepting inequality anymore. What are black people willing to accept??? Too many are so stuck in the world they choose not to acknowledge God and come away. They live as the beast does. Black people have gone so deep as to hate the color they and so they strike at everything that looks like them. Black people have lost touch.with the God in them so they seek external Gods. Black people have made deals under deals on top of deals to experience the white mans world, when in fact, black people had everything they needed—and wanted. I see detached, unfeeling, unloving, stressed, fearful, and even beast-like black people. And do know every person is not a reflection of Self. Every person is an ASPECT of God, either within or without, IS or IS NOT. There is only LOVE in truth. Black people live in fear of themselves AND of reaching back to God, because they are living a lie. A HUGE lie. The veil is so thick for some that they attack others to save themselves from MANS punishment. Black people have come to fear “death”. That is what separates them from Jesus the Christed, MLK, Malcolm, Marcus, and every other teacher, prophet and messenger sent. You beg, you plead, you pray, and bleed for an answer, a savior, someone to show you the WAY. Then they come, you criticize, you ostracize, you judge, all because the white man points out little HUMANE flaws. But do you think GOD would come as the light directly to you if you are not on GOD’S frequency as a people??? No. So before you God stands as you, man in the flesh. When you clear your accounts you will stand before God as God, in the light. Wake up wake up wake up. You are now responsible for your own actions and that of your brothers because you indulge together and turn away from the call of God in you. You mock, you bicker, you distract, and restrain yourSelves and each other, thinking God is separate from you. How little of you to believe you are here without guidance, without love. YOU chose to suffer! YOU chose to indulge! You chose to fight for equality of flesh—-you were free already!!!! How will you become free again??? Wake up Black people, and become ONE brethren in the Spirit of God, or die a permanent death in the flesh of man. God, what will you to have of me???

    Danny Glover was cast in the right movie, metaphorically. “Leathal Weapon”, that’s what a mind is that disseminates knowledge to the uninformed masses. Danny Glover is a voracious reader, who unlike many, needs to constantly feed his intellect. He and I used to frequent the same book store here in Portland Oregon, called Powells. I remember as a kid seeing the marches and the rabid racist southerners on tv and in print.
    They always displayed the confederate flag and NRA posters which were just as common as that trash flag. Like Tom Burrell said in his book, “Brainwashed,” there needs to be a modern approach to our problems, “The New Black Brain Campaign”.
    For a start that will mean the disposal of the alledged writings of bronze age, bedoin, illiterate, desert dwelling, flat earth believing, goat herders. I’m speaking about the book of myths known as the bible. while we’re at it, also chuck that 6th century collection of the most improbable facts possible in the trash can too. That would be the writings that form the other fantasy book called the qua’ran. Basically, because of all of the constant conquering, slavery, genocide, wholesale rape, colonialism and resource exploitation, we just picked one conquerors faith over the other.
    All thie vile bible and jesus promoters did was Take, Take, Take, Take and then took some more. Whether it be in Africa, South America, Brazil, North America, the Carribean, you name it and in return they gave you the bible. A book that was suppose to be the guide for moraity, love, respect, charity, mercy and peace. Clearly, it was a case of do as I say and not as I do. Is it such a strecth of the imagination to think that people,(Europeans),could commit these atrocities for centuries, but somehow wouldn’t print false words of text in a book. Do you understand that it’s estimated that two plus trillion (in todays dollars) was extracted from Africa alone by these people. Black people the world over have been praying to the god of jesus for three plus hundred years and what do we have to show for it. We’re at the top of almost every negative category of social, financial, or quality of life standard. It makes me want to pose the question to some of my christian brothers and sisters, if slavery was still the law of this land, would you still be christians? The very people who gave you your holy book, universally believed that we were’nt even human. And quiet as it’s kept, many still view us as sub-human.

    Authored By Poster “Big Will” Re: HIV Deliberate Development. Also Read:“The Isis Papers” by AA Female Dr. Frances Cress Welsing.

    HIV is synthetic. It has been developed over a number of years and it has an affinity for people of color. What the science and medical evidence concludes is that the HIV enzyme seeks out a receptor site in the blood of the Black genome. The receptor site is the CCR5 Delta 32+ (positive) gene that all people of color have. In the same sense, on the other end of the spectrum, is the 15 percent Caucasian population of the world, which is CCR5 Delta 32-(negative) gene. That means that under no circumstances, whether HIV came through the air, intravenous drug usage or any form of s****l activity, would the virus be transferable in Caucasian sector of the world’s population, which is basically of northern European descent.

    It is speculated by some experts that, in a worse case scenario, 85 percent of the world’s population could potentially perish under these designer viruses and designer synthetic biological agents. What we’re looking at here—because of this identified gene of the Black genome, this CCR5 Delta32+ (positive)—we are potentially looking at the eradication of all people of color. The bible states “My people perish for lack of knowledge.” The true devil doesn’t wear red tights, a cape with horns protruding from his forehead instead, the devil incarnate are diabolical Caucasian scientist (men and women) in white lab coats.
