Pulling out all the stops: Barack Obama descendant of first slave?

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

In the latest episode of ‘Obama media worship,’ the latest breaking story is that President Obama is a direct descendent of the first American slave on his mother’s side. That’s right, this super historical president is even more historical than you know! Don’t pay any attention to the crappy job he’s doing – just know he’s really historical

The New York Times reported:

The findings are scheduled to be announced on Monday by Ancestry.com, a genealogy company based in Provo, Utah. Its team, while lacking definitive proof, said it had evidence that “strongly suggests” Mr. Obama’s family tree — on his mother’s side — stretches back nearly four centuries to a slave in colonial Virginia named John Punch.

In 1640, Mr. Punch, then an indentured servant, escaped from Virginia and went to Maryland. He was captured there and, along with two white servants who had also escaped, was put on trial. His punishment — servitude for life — was harsher than what the white servants received, and it has led some historians to regard him as the first African to be legally sanctioned as a slave, years before Virginia adopted laws allowing slavery.

The media is, of course, trying to use this to bring race back into the conversation so that the media will have every opportunity possible to call anyone who isn’t an Obama supporter a racist.

“How can we not have him as president of the United States for a second term?  We ‑‑ I mean, we have to have him.  It would be racist to not have him now,” Glenn joked.

“Isn’t that a terrible conclusion from what you just said? Like, why would that make it so we had to have him as president? What significance would that have?” Stu asked.

Pat jokingly responded by calling him a racist for even asking the question.

Then again, if the ancestor is on his mother’s side playing the race card may not be that easy, seeing as she’s caucasian. Nevertheless, the media will find a way.

Make sure to watch the hilarious clip above and tune in tonight at 5pm ET on GBTV where Glenn will take a serious look at the glorification out media is doing of the first family and the shocking similarities it has to a country like North Korea.

    Notice the way the article states…

    The findings are scheduled to be announced on Monday by Ancestry.com, a genealogy company based in Provo, Utah. Its team, while lacking definitive proof, said it had evidence that “strongly suggests” Mr. Obama’s family tree — on his mother’s side — stretches back nearly four centuries to a slave in colonial Virginia named John Punch.

    Key phrase:

    “Its team, while lacking definite proof…”

    Translation: NO solid, established proof and no documentation that confirms the fact of the alleged link to the first slave recorded in America. There is no reliable proof, its a complete attempt for political maneuvering and position on the field of racial politics.

    Obama is desperate to reinforce his connection with his base, thus by having others make the claim to being a descent, via “strongly suggesting” evidence, which is at best hypothetical and conjecture (i.e. A GUESS), and blatant fabrication and distortion at worst, of the very first slave recorded in America, he can say “my ancestors were repressed…’

    This is done for race political positioning and posturing only. Nothing more and nothing less.

    Explain how he knows this please! He doesn’t even know where he was born. But as usual the liberal lick spittle’s will be swooning once again at this arrogant fool. If anything he is related to the “blacks” that captured and sold the real slaves to the white sea captains that brought them west. Yeah I know most people don’t even know that it was the black Africans that captured and sold these people. I guess it is just to damaging to their case for reparations.

    The REAL first slave in the American British colonies: Slavery was legally established by…. a black former indentured servant. He introduced African-style slavery to a system that had relied upon indentured servitude to pay off debts, allowing a person to earn their way to freedom.

    Anthony Johnson, African indentured servant in Virginia, established African-style slavery in American Colonies
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthony_Johnson_(American_Colonial)

    The question is, since Obama’s mother was pasty white, was she related to the white slaves in the early colonies?

    Well, with this ‘new’ knowledge, I think we should all demand ‘reparations’.  Who knew?

    George Downing wrote a
    letter to the honorable John Winthrop Colonial Governor of Massachusetts
    in 1645, “planters who want to make a fortune in the West Indies must
    procure white slave labor out of England if they wanted to succeed.” 
    Lewis Cecil Gray’s History of Agriculture in the Southern United
    States to 1860 vol.1 pp 316, 318 records Sir George Sandys’ 1618 plan
    for Virginia, referring to bound whites assigned to the treasurer’s
    office. “To belong to said office forever. 
    The service of whites bound to Berkeley Hundred was deemed
    perpetual.”

    My ancestors were from England and Scotland.  Reckon I could be a great, great, great, great, great, great granddaughter of an original slave?  WOWIE CAZOWIE!!

    ” Alexander tells of the other 88 Scots sold into slavery that day in “THE LYON IN MOURNING” pages 242-243.
    Jeremiah Howell was a lifetime-indentured servant by his uncle in Lewis County, Virginia in the early 1700’s.  His son, Jeremiah, won his freedom by fighting in the Revolution.  There were hundreds of thousands of Scots sold into slavery during Colonial America.  White slavery to the American Colonies occurred as early as 1630 in Scotland.”

    The article also claimed that Punch married a white woman and became a “free man” who then owned a large plantation with slaves.  Now, how can it be that he is descended from a “slave” when the alleged the ‘first grandfather’ was (1) A FREE MAN; and (2) OWNED HIS OWN SLAVES?  It is true that some Negroes were plantation owners and owned more slaves than their Caucasian counterparts, a fact that one can find in the Archives of several States. I don’t buy the ‘historical’ rendition given in this article.  If read correctly, obammy is no more qualified to be a desendant of a slave than he is eligible to be President–in short, he is niether.

    Many of us do know how African tribal leaders sold their own into slavery; unfortunately, it is their descendants who refuse to accept that fact in history because it is too easy to blame someone else.  Once they accept the facts as they really are, they have to then acept responsibilty and accountability for their own acts.  Oh, by the way, the original Roots opened with how kenyetta became a slave in America.  His uncle murdered his father and sold kenyetta so he could become the tribes’ chief; the position was inherited, passing to the oldest living brother if the Chief had no heirs. Later editions, I have heard, omit this opening.   The book was stolen from an 80 year old ailing man and later published by the current author, who was later proven to be a plagerist and he had to pay the elderly man a paltry sum–did the wayward ‘author’ share the wealth he received from his theft?  Certainly not–he left the originator of the book to die in abject poverty in the slums of NYC.

    Seems odd since I recall that they could find no record of his grandparents’ births or their marriage certificate.  They do know they were from Kansas I think?  I’ve done quite a bit of family research and kinda, sorta almost close just doesn’t prove anything.  You need something  that obama just doesn’t want to provide and that is documentation so I don’t know how they traced anything unless it was through his mother’s relatives that do have records of some sort.  But I doubt that since he has spend millions trying scrub his history.

    Did they also mention that he is a even closer decedent of the Arab Slave Traders that ripped people from their homes and sold them in the first place?
    His daddy is from the Luo Tribe and they are known Slave Traders living in Kenya on the coast as it was easier to ship them.

    What about Obama’s momma’s family that history shows they owned slaves? Did he forget about that side of the family?

    Looks he’s got more slave blood on his hands in his history than the credit of descending from one in the first place.

    Negro plantation owners owned many indentured servants as well as black slaves.  Some plantation owners had a practice of giving their favorite black slave a white indentured servant.  No matter who owned them, the white indentured servant was treated far less humanely than the black slaves.  Odd, isn’t it, that the descendants of these white slaves aren’t demanding reparation from the black decendants for their part in the inhumane manner in which they treated our ancestors.

    American Heritage, vol. 441, “Selling Poor Steven” states that 3,775 free blacks owned 12,740 black slaves. This story also purports that the first slave owner in VA, Anthony Johnson, was a black man. Frighteningly, the story also outlines how free black women “owned” their husbands, free blacks sold their children into slavery, and absent free black slave owners “leased” their slaves to plantation owners.”

    Except for recent immigrants about the last 30 years; Most Americans Are Some Way Related. Didn’t they find out that George Bush and Sarah Palin are related to BHO? Yet they still verbally abuse her. During the 2008 campaign Obama people and “celebrities” insulted Sarah Palin’s Family’s American Indian heritage nastily. But Obama and no dems criticized that or called for apologies. Anyone who has read the actual documents facts knows what Monk wrote. So are they trying to say O’s 11th great grandad who was Black or part Black was owned by another Black man? Wouldn’t that make “likeability” because of simpathy for “injustice” worse. “Ancestry com” and others say the report is inconclusive because complete proof is gone and can’t be found. So in other words the report is A GUESS, WISHFUL THINKING AND LONGING. By “npr” and “the times”. The same npr that fired liberal Juan Williams because he wasn’t liberal enough.

    I think “they” are just trying to further confuse the uneducated. 

    The article intimated that more of us have black ancestors than we like to admit, which makes people more racist.  I would think it would work the other way around — if you knew you had black relatives, that would help to alleviate any racism you might feel. 

    Then again, history tells that one reason Hitler hated the Jews was because he had Jewish blood in him and was ashamed of it. 

    Is this like the old saying about dogs, “They only kill their masters?”

    And maybe someone can explain this to me, it’s something I’ve never understood.  America was not the first nation where slavery occurred — it’s been around in one form or another since the dawn of man, practically.  America was, however, one of the first nations to make and pass a law preventing it from continuing.  So why does it seem like the only country where it’s even brought up anymore is in America?

    Without this story, he has no connection to being down with the struggle as Al not so sharpton would say.  It’s hard to get sympathy for slavery when your father from Kenya probably has more evidence of being a part of being a slave trader than a slave.

    Wow!   Since ”evidence strongly suggests” that B.O. could be a descendant of the first slave,

    they should move ahead with this story?   How soon before a book deal will be made?  After all,

    Yep, you’re right, Sam.  Blacks did sell fellow blacks they defeated in fighting (or just

    rounded up some?), and then sold them for the going rate.  Elsewhere, I had heard the

    Arabs were big in the black slave trade, as well.   On another thread, someone had

    commented about Obama’s Arab heritage via Kenya.  Wonder when that will be looked

    into and/or investigated?   Could they have been in the slave trade business?   If so,

    that piece of information would probably never see the light of day.

    AmPat, one of the reasons why our country is ”still paying for it” could be because there

    was a war fought around mid-nineteenth century which involved the black slaves to one

    degree or another.   As things progressed, it was easy for some to fall into ”the victim”

    mode and get goodies and entitlements from ”Uncle Sugar.”   Not saying the blacks had

    it easy.  They did live through the Jim Crow years and segregation.   But they were not

    the only ones in America who had hard times.  Look at the history of some of the early

    immigrants to this country.  Some of them were treated rather shabbily.  Irish, for one.

    Not too long ago, another race was rounded up and put into camps.  Remember what

    happened to the Japanese, who lived on the West Coast, during WWII?

    If the facts are correct about Punch, that he was black, does not make him a slave.  He is reputed to have been an indentured servant – a free man who contracted his future labor without remuneration to cover passage to Virginia.  The consequence of his attempt to defraud his contract holder was a life of indentured. I agree this is harsh by modern standards, but this is not slavery.

    A slave (by colonial standards) was someone forcibly removed from Africa and sold into labor without the individuals consent.

    Other question, if Punch was Irish, he may have been black Irish. This does not mean negro, it means a Irishman that had dark hair and was a descendent of a survivor of the Spanish Armada.

         Plantations were run like small cities, and the plantation owners were the law –something most people do not know.  Physical abuse of slaves never even happened as much as they say; they were punished when they committed crimes such as murder, rape, or theft. 
         You have to remember, too, that blacks were not considered 100% human 200 years ago; even 2000 years ago, the word they used for them was “beasts”, and the name for them has changed over 50 times since then.  They’ve come a long way, since now they are called ‘African-American’ by the ignorant, even if they aren’t American.  There is more abuse of animals today than abuse of slaves yesterday.
         Slavery was not a bad thing.  Instead of freeing the slaves, all they had to do was create laws to protect them, just like they made laws to protect women as wives, and just like there are laws which protect animals.
