The latest example of liberal Hollywood spin will turn American history on its head by radically reimagining the southern states as victors of the Civil War (1861-1865), with slavery continuing to flourish into the present-day. David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, creators of HBO’s award-winning adventure series Game of Thrones (2011-), have just been given the green light to produce a controversial new series titled Confederate.
The show’s historically distorted storyline will follow “a broad swath of characters on both sides of the Mason-Dixon Demilitarized Zone—freedom fighters, slave hunters, politicians, abolitionists, journalists, the executives of a slave-holding conglomerate and the families of people in their thrall.”
Frankly, I’m not surprised that one of the network’s next big pet projects will be to completely rewrite the most divisive chapter in American history. And for what? To promote more divisiveness? If the industry’s declining reputation for actually entertaining audiences is any indication, then you can count on Confederate to stoke the flames of racial division. Malcom Spellman (Empire), who is on-board as both executive producer and writer, explained it best during an interview:

Come hook or crook, Democrats are desperately trying to set up for a big win on November 8. Like many people, I’m suspicious of them. They have a bigger reputation of committing voter fraud, intimidation, and even downright violence than any other political party in America. But did you know their desperate schemes date back to at least the 1860s? Unfortunately, this is another one of those history lessons most of us never learned in school. Today, anyone who dares to utter the words “rigged election,” is publicly attacked as “right-wing conspirators.” This is suppose to silence us from doing our civic duty of making sure our elections have integrity. Meanwhile, the real conspirators just keep on riggin’ full steam ahead.
Today, we’re becoming more aware of some of the back room shenanigans that Democrats and their political operatives have been up to all along, thinking most Americans would never find out. Oops!
Mass Voter Fraud & Poll Manipulation
In a series of explosive videos, investigative journalist James O’Keefe and his undercover Project Veritas team take us behind-the-scenes of the Democratic Party’s vast secret network of nefarious dealings.
By now, you’re probably aware that the $20 bill is getting a facelift. Apparently, our government has nothing better to do than turn our paper currency into wallet-sized political billboards, starting with replacing the image of white, male, Democrat and slaveholder President Andrew Jackson (1767-1845) with that of black, female, Republican and abolitionist Harriet Tubman (1822-1913).
Personally, I don’t have a problem with Harriet Tubman’s image appearing on our currency. I can care less that she’s black, or a woman for that matter. Those are just superficial differences that progressive bureaucrats love to exploit, even though such attributes say nothing about the value of an individual.
However, what intrigues me most about Tubman is that, despite being born into slavery on a Maryland plantation in 1822, she refused to think of herself as a victim. You might even say she was driven by a “Live Free or Die” spirit. Unfortunately, this side of Tubman is never mentioned in the history books. Therefore, I shall do the honors.

Have you heard of Josiah Walls or Hiram Rhodes Revels? How about Joseph Hayne Rainey? If not, you’re not alone. I taught history and I never knew half of our nation’s past until I began to re-educate myself by learning from original source materials, rather than modern textbooks written by progressive Democrats with an agenda.
Interestingly, Democrats have long ago erased these historic figures from our textbooks, only to offer deceitful propaganda and economic enticements in an effort to convince people, especially black Americans, that it’s the Democrats rather than Republicans who are the true saviors of civil liberties. Luckily, we can still venture back into America’s real historical record to find that facts are stubborn things. Let’s take a closer look.
An 1872 print by Currier and Ives depicts the first seven black Americans elected to the U.S. Congress during the Reconstruction period of 1865 to 1877—and they’re all Republican!
From left to right:
- Sen. Hiram Rhodes Revels, R-MS (1822-1901): Already an ordained minister, Revels served as an army chaplain and was responsible for recruiting three additional regiments during the Civil War. He was also elected to the Mississippi Senate in 1869 and the U.S. Senate in 1870, making him America’s first black senator.
- Rep. Benjamin Turner, R-AL (1825-1894): Within just five years, Turner went from slave to wealthy businessman. He also became a delegate to the Alabama Republican State Convention of 1867 and a member of the Selma City Council in 1868. In 1871, Turner was even elected to the U.S. Congress.
