Do you know the history behind the term “Abolitionism”? I am guessing if you are a product of America’s current Leftist education system and the Left’s penchant to revise history, you might be a little clueless.

 

In American history Abolition was a movement to free African-Americans from the bonds of slavery. By the time Republican Abraham Lincoln was elected in 1860, the Southern Slave States were concerned Lincoln’s election would mean interference in the slave economy and thus rebelled against the Northern Free States. The irony about Southern slave concerns is that President Lincoln never acted on slavery until 1863 (Lincoln and Emancipation Proclamation), two years into the roughly four year Civil War that ended in 1865.  

 

So, what has me reminiscing about American history and the Abolitionist Movement? I ran into a Tim Brown post at the Freedom Outpost with this title: “Why Abolitionism is Replacing the Pro-Life Movement”.

 

After seeing the title, I had to ask myself, “What in the world does the Abolitionist Movement that led to freeing the slaves have to do with the Pro-Life Movement?”

 

Well, it turns out that a movement is being initiated in Oklahoma that believes the tactics of the Pro-Life Movement have been ineffectual in reversing the curse of killing babies as a method of birth control. The movement being initiated in Oklahoma is called Abolitionism. Here’s an excerpt from the Freedom Outpost article (which I will be cross posting below my thoughts):

 

While the pro-life movement may mean well, it has the wrong concept of dealing with the murder of the unborn.  The pro-life movement, like its progressive counterparts, want to incrementally push their agenda.

 

The problem is that they are always allowing space and reason for the murder of the unborn.

 

Abolitionism in the modern context reasons that Pro-Life has been too tepid on why there is a Pro-Life Movement; viz., to radically inject the Christian Faith and vocally proclaim the Word of God and the moral ramification in Christ on killing babies. Especially looking at sexual promiscuity of unwed people causing a pregnancy.

 

The centrality is to know wrong is wrong and right is right. Thus, any concept of incrementalism to end abortion is nearly as bad or wrong or sinful as the abortion itself.

 

WHOA! That’s some good preaching!

 

But there is a concern that needs to be measured in this new Abolitionism to end pre-born baby-killing. My concern is that some idiot Christian will believe God has called him to act seditiously against the rule of law to the point of even killing pro-abortion advocates or doctors performing the baby-killing procedure.

 

Pre-Civil War abolitionists were also a God-fearing Christian lot that correctly believed slavery was morally reprehensible. As long as the Abolitionist activist civil disobedience was limited to helping escaped slaves to freedom by some kind of underground railroad so-to-speak, then I believe that was awesome. The modern era’s Martin Luther King is a classic American example of proper civil disobedience to cause social-cultural change.

 

The Abolitionists of Abraham Lincoln’s day practiced proper civil disobedience to free slaves. The Southern Plantation elitists hated Abolitionist civil disobedience because it messed with the culture they grew up in and believed should be maintained – at the very least to protect the family business.

 

Abolitionists were a bit more radical than President Lincoln. They wanted to end slavery yesterday, while Lincoln was willing to work compromises for the sake of the Southern economy. Southerners who had become rich from slave operated plantations wanted nothing to do with Abolition immediacy or Lincoln gradual slave elimination.

 

Some abolitionists were so extreme that they were willing to use violent terrorist tactics against Slave States to make a point. Such Abolitionist thinking did more to harden the Southern populace to support the wealthy plantation elites than to abolish slavery. Right or wrong, Americans don’t like to be told what to do. Fear tactics merely drove hostile public opinion against the Free State in the Southern States.

 

Abolitionists were peaceful protestors for the most part often active in aiding runaway slaves to escape to Canada. The most famous or infamous violent Abolitionist was John Brown who believe it was his duty to God to incite violence which he thought would embolden slaves to rise up against their masters and end slavery. Even many Northerners condemned Brown’s violent tactics, but in the end after he was hung for murder, John Brown became a rally cry legend of the Northern States and Union Army to take the fight to the Confederate Army.

 

The reality was though, John Brown was a seditious rabble rouser who killed innocent people. He began his violent campaign in the then Kansas Territory and it ended with his capture in Harper’s Ferry Virginia in 1859. After which he was tried, convicted and hung for murder.

Our guest on the Road to Now for Monday, Aug. 14, Randall Fuller author of, "The Book that Changed America," discusses John Brown's infamous raid on Harper's Ferry.

 

The irony of John Brown terrorism even in my grade school days in the 60s, the portrait of heroism of old Hollywood still made him the patriotic hero. Check this brief clip which I spotted Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland showing sympathy for John Brown as he was led to the gallows:

Clip from "Santa Fe Trail" (1940; 110 min)

 

Santa Fe Trail is a 1940 American western film directed by Michael Curtiz and starring Errol Flynn, Olivia de Havilland, Raymond Massey and Ronald Reagan. Written by Robert Buckner, the film is about the abolitionist John Brown and his fanatical attacks on slavery as a prelude to the American Civil War. Subthemes include J.E.B. Stuart and George Armstrong Custer as they duel for the hand of Kit Carson Holliday.

 

The film was one of the top-grossing films of the year, and the seventh Flynn–de Havilland collaboration.

 

Some of the speech the actor portraying John Brown was actually spoken by the real Brown at his hanging which would later add to his legend as an Abolitionist hero.

 

And here is a song that Union troops actually sang about John Brown adapted from the Battle Hymn of the Republic:

Very inspirational to a grade school kid.

 

But face it, John Brown went beyond civil disobedience escalating toward terrorism that cost the lives of people who disagreed with him. My concern there is a person listening to the new message of 21st century abolitionism that my sense God has called him to seditious murder to bring attention that abortion is murder.

 

That person will not only face the same result as John Brown, but in this day of lying Leftists, laws aimed at all Christian morality will bring persecution to the Bible Believing Christians that may not have been seen since before Rome became a government ordained Christian empire.

 

Tim Brown’s (fairly certain no relation to John Brown) article promoting the new Abolitionism to save pre-born babies from murder centers around a couple of Okies joining the Freedom Outpost team: Dan Fisher and T. Russell Hunter. Brown focuses on Hunter’s five tenets of the new Abolitionism that should be more activist oriented than the current Pro-Life Movement. The radical key of the new Abolitionism is ending the concept of “incrementalism”.

 

Here is the Brown article that culminates with a Hunter video preaching the new Abolitionism five tenets.

Why Abolitionism is Replacing the Pro-Life Movement

Freedom Outpost

 

I am excited to announce that very soon we will be having a few contributors from the state of Oklahoma.  Among those contributors, we are hoping to welcome gubernatorial candidate Dan Fisher.  However, to give you a taste of a man who has works that demonstrate his faith, I'd like to introduce you to T. Russell Hunter.

 

Mr. Hunter took time to speak with me over the weekend and we are excited about a new video that is set to rock Oklahoma politics on Wednesday and quite possibly the entire nation.

 

In preparation of that release, I thought it appropriate to point you to a short talk that Hunter did on why abolitionism is replacing the pro-life movement.

 

While the pro-life movement may mean well, it has the wrong concept of dealing with the murder of the unborn.  The pro-life movement, like its progressive counterparts, want to incrementally push their agenda.

 

The problem is that they are always allowing space and reason for the murder of the unborn.

 

Abolitionists do not allow for that at all.

 

Plus, abolitionists think like then presidential candidate Donald Trump when he stated that a mother who engages in the murder of her unborn baby is not a victim, but a criminal and should be treated as such, along with the abortionist and anyone having a hand in the murder.

 

With that stated, Hunter lays out the five tenets of abolition and why the pro-life movement must be abandoned if people are serious about ending the murder of the unborn.

 

Watch the video, listen to his presentation and see if you do not agree that those who believe in the sanctity of human life must become abolitionists and not simply be content with the scraps that pro-life representatives are throwing to us in order to maintain the status quo and bow the knee to the state and Molech.
