The Lifeline Expedition: Self-Hating White Masochists March In Chains And Yokes To "Atone" For Slavery In "Slavery Reconciliation March"

Would the Washington State Children's Administration consider this to be child abuse?
A Stormfront thread started on May 7th, 2013 and now 11 pages long discusses the activities of an organization called "The Lifeline Expedition". This group affords people the opportunity to "atone" for slavery by allowing themselves to be trussed up in chains and wooden yokes and making a public spectacle of themselves.

But it was James Edwards of The Political Cesspool who first brought this to notice. The Lifeline Expedition was actually founded by a Brit, David Pott, who organizes contingents of people to perform "slavery reconciliation marches" throughout American cities where the slave trade was most prominent. During this month, they've already marched in Marblehead, Salem and Boston in Massachusetts, and moved on to Providence and Newport in Rhode Island. However, it was their appearance in Newport which garnered media attention. As part of their outreach, the activists, some of who were white Americans and white Europeans, submitted a letter to the Newport City Council, asking the council to vote on a letter of apology for the city's past involvement in the slave trade; Keith Stokes, executive director of the Newport County Chamber of Commerce, agreed to bring the letter to the office of Mayor Richard C. Sardella. The group is now heading for Virginia, where they will march in Richmond, Jamestown and Williamsburg, and then on to South Carolina, where they will march in Charleston.

David Pott targeted Newport because, according to him, historical records that show at least 934 ships left Rhode Island, most from Newport, headed to West Africa in the period from 1730-1805 for shipments of slaves. This was part of what became known as the "triangle trade", where African slaves shipped to Newport were paid for with rum distilled in Rhode Island. Most of the slaves were subsequently traded in the Caribbean for molasses. In turn, the molasses was then brought to Rhode Island to be distilled into rum, and the trade cycle would begin anew. What the media story omitted was the identity of the ethnic group disproportionately involved in this trade; fortunately, Walter White Jr. corrected this deficiency in his pamphlet entitled "Who Brought The Slaves To America".

The media story focuses on Jacob Lienau and his large family including his parents, Shari and Michael Lienau, and their four biological children and five adopted children, who are part of the Lifeline Expedition. Jacob decided on his own to wear the yoke and chains after seeing a painting of African slave children wearing them in the 19th century, and hearing about the march. He claims he's not on a guilt trip, explaining "We today don't need to feel guilty, we just need to feel sorry." Somehow, the difference between "guilty" and "sorry" escapes me.

But of further interest is the fact that Lienau and his family hail from Camano Island in Washington State, which is 95 percent white. One must wonder how the Children's Administration division of the Washington State Division of Health and Social Services would react to the picture of a 13-year-old boy from the state being trussed up in chains and wooden yokes and exhibited publicly like livestock. Would the Children's Administration question the fitness of his parents? Enquiries can be directed through this portal, and they would be more credible if initiated by a Washington resident. Sounds like an opportunity for the Northwest Front to engage in some in-state activism.

I suppose if there's one saving grace behind this orgy of masochistic self-flagellation, it's the reminder that the slave trade was not exclusively a "Southern" thing.

That picture alone is just vomit-inducing.
Talk about corrupting, exploiting and abusing the young!

This kind of suicidal self hate amongst Whites is just fine by todays society, but if a White parent tells their child some "politically incorrect" things, and the kid repeats them at school- better call DCFS, get the kids away from those evil White nazi parents!

I guess none of us (WNs) should be surprised anymore at the new lows "achieved" by the pathetic, weak, stupid, White morons that comprise the majority of our populace in the 21st Century.

Such guilt trips would gain historical credit if it were SEPHARDIC JEWS that would participate in them. Most of the slavetraders belonged to that ethnicity.

What a load of bull!! We in today's society have nothing to feel guilty about.

This is why blacks still think of themselves as victims.

The children need to be removed from the parents. These children do not understand their actions & this is child abuse as far as I am concerned.
