Addendum to “For Whom Is
the Constitution Written?”
Additional evidence that the US Constitution was written by and for Whites is that the US Supreme Court ruled that Blacks were not citizens, and the fourteenth amendment was needed to make them citizens. Unfortunately, the fourteenth amendment, which is discussed below, also changed the construct of the country and the US Constitution.
Article IV, Section 2, Paragraph 1 of the US Constitution, reads: “The citizens of each State shall be entitled to all privileges and immunities of citizens in the several States.” During the debate on the Missouri Compromise in 1821, Charles Pinckney of South Carolina, who was the author of this clause said, “At the time I drew that Constitution, I perfectly knew that there did not then exist such a thing in the Union as a black or colored citizen, nor could I then have conceived it possible such a thing could ever have existed. . . .” The most important clause in the Constitution about citizenship is this comity clause, and its author says that it applied only to Whites and not to Blacks; therefore, the US Constitution is only for Whites.
Dred Scott Decision
The Dred Scott decision ruled that Negroes were not citizens under the US Constitution. Contrary to the popular myth, the Dred Scott decision did not declare or make the Negro nonhuman or subhuman. It merely declared that Negroes like foreigners were not citizens of the United States. Not being a citizen under the Constitution, the United States Supreme Court ruled that Scott, a Black slave, could not sue in a court of the United States government.
The Supreme Court ruled that Negroes were not, and were not intended to be included, under the word “citizens” in the Constitution, and, therefore, they could claim none of the rights and privileges that it provided and secured to citizens of the United States. Moreover, the Court acknowledged that a State could grant Negroes the rights and privileges of the citizens of that State, as some of the New England States had done. However, having the rights and privileges of a citizen of a State did not make a Negro a citizen of the Union or grant him rights in other States. (It also recognized that some States had given foreigners who intended to become citizens of the United States the rights and privileges of citizenship in that State, but this action did not make them citizens of the United States until they had been naturalized according to the nationalization law of the United States.)
Further, the Court declared that at the time of its adoption, the Constitution recognized as citizens the citizens in the several States. This recognition made them citizens of the new political body created by the Constitution when it was adopted. No other classes of people were included in this citizenship. They formed the Constitution for themselves and their posterity, and for no one else. All the personal rights and privileges guaranteed to citizens under this Constitution were intended only for those who were then members of the several State communities, or who should afterward, by birthright or otherwise, become members, according to the provisions of the Constitution and the principles on which it was founded.
The Court identified two clauses in the Constitution that point directly and specifically to the Negro race as a separate class of people. These two clauses clearly show that the Negro was not considered part of the people or citizens under the Constitution. One was the clause that reserves to each State the right to import slaves until the year 1808 (Article I, Section 2, Paragraph 1). This sanction unquestionably referred to the Negro. The other provision was the pledge of the States to each other to maintain the right of property of the master by delivering up to him any slave who escaped if he were found within their respective territories (Article IV, Section 2, Paragraph 3).
Thus, with the Dred Scott decision, the US Supreme Court ruled that the Negro could not be a citizen of the United States although a State could grant him the rights and privileges of a citizen of that State. By inference, no nonwhite could be a citizen of the United States under the Constitution.
Although the Supreme Court did not rule on the status of Indians in the Dred Scott decision, the Constitution strongly implies that Indians were not and could not be citizens of the United States. However, some States had granted Indians rights and privileges of citizens of their States. (Even after the adoption of the fourteenth amendment, Congress declared that Indians not taxed were not citizens under that amendment.)
Because of the Dred Scott decision, the fourteenth amendment was necessary to make Negroes citizens of the United States. Unfortunately, it did more than that. It destroyed the original Constitution and changed the whole concept and construction of the country. Not only did the fourteenth amendment make the Black man a citizen of the United States, but it also made the White man a citizen of the United States. Before, one was a citizen of a State, and by virtue of being a citizen of a State, he was a citizen of the United States. Under the fourteenth amendment, any citizen of the United States became a citizen of the State in which he resided. Thus, the fourteenth amendment changed the construction of the United States from a confederation of sovereign States to a consolidated union of States.
Before the fourteenth amendment, no national citizenship existed; a person was a citizen of a State. The term “citizen of the United States” was a term of convenience that meant that someone was a citizen of a State. According to one of the promoters, Senator James Blaine, of the fourteenth amendment, its intent was to change the status of citizenship by replacing citizen of a State with a citizen of the United States. Senator Blaine said, “. . . we are not confining the breadth and scope of our efforts to the Negro. It is for the white man as well. We intend to make citizenship national. Heretofore, a man has been a citizen of the United States because he was a citizen of some-one of the states: now we propose to reverse that.”
Besides changing citizenship, another purpose of the fourteenth amendment was and still is to humiliate and shame Southerners by making the Negro their master. Its purpose was and still is to degrade the Southerner to the level of the Negro and even below that level. Its objective was to degrade the Southerner by creating conditions that would encourage interracial mating. Sacrificing their beloved Negro to destroy the Southerner was of little concern for the Radical Republicans; they were just so much collateral damage. After all, Puritan Yankees considered Southerners to be subhuman at best and most likely a nonhuman beast.
Unfortunately, for the Northerner, but not the Radical Republicans, who were Puritan Yankees, whose descendants are Liberal Democrats, this degradation spread across the country as the Negro became elevated above Whites everywhere. Not only has the Negro been elevated above Whites, so have all other nonwhite races.
The fourteenth amendment was illegally, unlawfully, and unconstitutionally ratified. Most of the so-called legislators of the Southern legislatures who voted to ratify the fourteenth amendment were not citizens when they voted on the amendment. They did not become citizens entitled to vote until after the amendment was ratified. Moreover, the fourteenth amendment has other irregularities in its proposal and adoption, such as failure to achieve two-thirds of the votes in the Senate needed for its proposal.
When it was first sent to the States, 11 States rejected it (only 10 were needed to kill the amendment). Then, Congress refused to recognize the governments of the Southern States and replaced them with Negro governments controlled by carpetbaggers and scalawags backed by the US army to ensure the ratification of the amendment. Besides the ten Southern States voting to reject the fourteenth amendment, seven other States also voted to reject it. Although military might forced these 10 Southern States to change their rejection of ratification, two States, Ohio and New Jersey, that had previously voted to ratify the amendment changed their vote to reject it. While accepting the approvals of the unlawful governments of the Southern States, the Secretary of State refused to recognize the disapproval by these two States.
The Southern States that had rejected the fourteenth amendment were stripped of their representation in the US House of Representatives and the Senate and had their constitutions voided. Then, Congress through the army forced them to draft and adopt a new constitution for Congress’ approval and to ratify the fourteenth amendment before they were allowed any representation in Congress. Male inhabitants who were not disenfranchised because of participation in the rebellion elected delegates to the convention for drafting the new constitutions. Thus, most White males were disqualified. The legislature elected under the new constitution had to ratify the fourteenth amendment. Only then would Congress readmit that State and allow its Representatives and Senators be seated in Congress. Consequently, according to the law enacted by Congress to reorganize the governments of the Southern States, these States had no legitimate government when they ratified the fourteenth amendment.
Thus, many whites were disenfranchised for participating in the rebellion, and therefore, Negroes elected most of the delegates to the States’ constitutional conventions, although they had no legal right to vote. The constitutions drafted by these conventions were presented to the voters of the State for ratification. These voters were largely male Negroes since most Whites were disenfranchised for participating in the rebellion. Again, these Negroes had no legal right to vote.
The legality of the Southern States was not questioned when they ratified the thirteenth amendment, which forbade slavery. However, these same governments became illegal when they rejected the fourteenth amendment.
The Congress that passed the fourteenth amendment for submission to the States did so without Representatives and Senators from the Southern States although all, except Texas, had been entirely restored to all their functions as States in conformity with the organic law of the land.
To get the fourteenth amendment ratified, Congress had to enfranchise the Negroes and disfranchised the White men. Then, Congress had the Negroes, with the aid of carpetbaggers and scalawags, elect delegates to a convention to draw up a constitution that gave Negroes the right to vote. Afterward, the constitution was adopted without the vote of most White men. Next, a legislature was elected without the votes of most Whites. Thus, the State legislature consisted mostly of Negroes with some carpetbaggers and scalawags. After that, the Negro dominated legislature ratified the fourteenth amendment to make Negroes citizens of the United States. Consequently, people who were not citizens and could not vote elected a body that ratified the amendment that made them citizens with the right to vote. Such is the infamy of the fourteenth amendment.
The most hideous consequence of the fourteenth amendment was to destroy the original Constitution and the original construct of the United States. The United States were established as a federation of free and independent sovereign States. These States were a genetic nation, and they established the United States as a genetic country, that is, a country of, by, and for the White race. However, by making Negroes citizens, the fourteenth amendment changed the construct of the United States. They cease being a genetic federation and became a propositional empire. As a result, the purpose of the United States ceased being to protect, preserve, and promote the White residents thereof. A new purpose had to be found to include the Negro. That purpose became equality and democracy. From now on the United States would war to make the world safe for equality and democracy.
To accomplish this goal all men had to be changed into faceless beings called citizens. Moreover, each citizen was as good as another citizen. That is, citizens became interchangeable with one another. Importantly, people cease identifying themselves by race and identified themselves as citizens. Then, these citizens could be united to fight for democracy and equality. As long as these citizens would fight for democracy and equality, the United States fulfilled its purpose. Provided that these citizens would fight for democracy and equality, the type and quality of citizens mattered little: whether the citizen was White or Black or some other race did not matter. (Not only do liberals and libertarians revel in the conversion of the United States and the Constitution from a White country and Constitution to a propositional country and Constitution, so do nearly all conservatives.)
Thus, the fourteenth amendment completely destroyed the United States and subverted the US Constitution. It changed the country from one dedicated to protecting, preserving, and promoting the White race (the Aryan race) to a proportional country dedicated to spreading democracy and equality. Moreover, what the repeal of the prohibition amendment (the twenty-first amendment) did to the prohibition amendment (the eighteenth amendment), the fourteenth amendment effectively did to the ninth and, especially, the tenth amendments.
When the Negro became a citizen and the equal of the Aryan, the United States as originally founded died. The Hamiltonian-Lincolnians, Puritan Yankees, Marxists, Cabalist Jews, and their ilk won, and they have ruled the country ever since. Liberty has waned, and the US government and its despotism have waxed. Nearly all the governmental programs that many conservatives and most libertarians rail against have grown out of the fourteenth amendment.
