The following article, Cloth Worn By Pelosi & Dems Are ‘Historically’ Tied to African Empire Slave Traders (Details), was first published on Flag And Cross.
If they aren’t pandering, bloviating, or demagoguing, Democrats seemingly wouldn’t know what to do with themselves. It’s as if they thrive on nonsense.
But you already knew that.
Check this out, via TDW:
A top mainstream fact-checker wrote on Tuesday that the Kente cloths that Democrats wore earlier this month after the death of George Floyd were “historically worn” by an “empire involved in [the] West African slave trade.”
More from USA Today:
A popular legend claims creators of kente cloth presented the cloth to Asantehene Osei Tutu, the Asante kingdom’s first leader. Tutu named the cloth “kente,” meaning basket, and adopted the fabric as a royal cloth for special occasions.
Tutu, who lived from 1660 to 1712 or 1717, unified several small Asante kingdoms to create the Asante empire. He is credited with expanding the Asante throughout most of Ghana and introducing his subjects to the gold and slave trades along the West African coast.
The Asante supplied British and Dutch traders with slaves in exchange for firearms, which they used to expand their empire. Slaves were often acquired as tributes from smaller states or captured during war. Some slaves were brought across the Atlantic whiles others stayed in Africa to work in gold fields.
Does wearing kente cloth and taking a knee mean you are all of a sudden "down with the struggle"? This is why people hate disingenuous politicians. Speaker Pelosi was there for the 94 crime bill. She is part of the problem. #VA10 https://t.co/uLbdwOgOoS
