Talking of history, do you know your New Testament? In Chapter 8 of the Acts of the Apostles (verse 27 to be exact) there is a reference to "Candace, queen of the Ethopians". Some scholars tell us that Candace was not, as might be thought, the name of a person, but of a dynasty. Others suggest that the term might have meant "queen mother".
No matter. The English Puritans and others who have given their daughters this name have understandably assumed that it means "queen". And who is the best known bearer of it at the present day? Step forward the brave and beautiful Ms Candace Owens, a voice of sense and moderation amid the present race warfare.
Here she is, in a video issued by Prager University.
Meanwhile here is BLM activist Shaun King, who's sounding foolish, fascistic and sinister with his reverse racism.
I mean, look whose statue is in his sights, and why:
Deservedly, he's meeting opposition and ridicule:
Writing in The Spectator, the distinguished British journalist Charles Moore has King's measure, as well as that of the fools who meekly give into them. Inter alia:
'.... I had a cousin by marriage called Lawrence Durdin-Robertson. After ten years as an Anglican parson, he returned to his ancestral home, Clonegal Castle, in Ireland. There he gradually came to the view that God had been (or rather, is) a woman. He and his sister eventually founded the Fellowship of Isis, dedicated to this proposition, whose temple is in the castle basement. Lawrence, who, as the Fellowship of Isis puts it, ‘made his transition to spirit’ in 1994, was hardline, and tended, when he saw statues of Jesus with a beard, to break the beards off. I am glad he thrived pre-Twitter, so that his ideas did not spread much further than Co. Carlow. No such luck with today’s equivalents.
Shaun King is a well-known and noisy activist associated with Black Lives Matter, who fell out with some of them because there was sharp disagreement about how black he really was. Now Mr King is tweeting: ‘Yes, I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down. They are a form of white supremacy. Always have been. In the Bible, when the family of Jesus wanted to hide, and blend in, guess where they went? EGYPT! Not Denmark. Tear them down.’ It is only a matter of time before people of Shaun King’s mind scour our churches and cathedrals for depictions — readily available, of course — of the ‘white European’ Jesus, and do as he suggests. How will the bench of bishops react then? I suspect they will express their collective repentance for being what the Archbishop of Canterbury calls ‘deeply institutionally racist’ and take the knee amid the rubble and the dust.
By the way, I suggest Mr King add Michelangelo’s David to his list: there a Middle Eastern king is disgracefully recast by a white European as a white European, uncircumcised penis and all. Tear it down! .....' [Emphasis added]
