Ted Hayes hob-nobs with top Republicans, addresses Tea Parties, attended Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally and has been associated with the anti-illegal-immigration groups. Hayes is known as the “Rasta Republican.” On his website he espouses racist beliefs and advocates reparations for slavery. Hayes’ participation in “patriot groups” appears to be a bizarre offer of collective salvation and redemption for whites by a follower of a kind of black nationalist cult religion in exchange for the eventual payment of reparations. Some of our local Tea Party and Minutemen leadership are trying to sell Hayes as a “patriot.” Have the Republicans, Tea Party and San Diego Minutemen been bamboozled? We report, you decide.
In one article posted on his website, he asserts that all whites are collectively guilty and that the right for reparations comes from God! Hayes says that races are responsible for the misdeeds of ancestors committed as far back as previous thousands of generations and that even God and Jesus Christ demand reparations be made. The current generation of whites has to admit their guilt and pay restitution, in order to be seen worthy of redemption in the eyes of God. See quotes below:
Reparations IS GENERATIONAL Responsibility. God will hold one Generation responsible and accountable for the wrongdoing of previous ones…even thousands.
Jesus Christ Himself teaches that without REPARATIONS, GOD will not hear prayer nor receive praise and thanksgiving. (Mathew 5: 23-26)
In the Last Day, the Day of Judgment, JESUS CHRIST as JUDGE actually holds His own generation accountable for the past deeds (sins) of generation gone by.
Elsewhere he states that blacks are a “nation within a nation” an says that land is necessary for reparations. Hayes is espousing a racist concept that whites are responsible for the actions of previous generations, even up to thousands of generations before. That races have a “karma” based on the actions of previous generations is an occult idea that was developed by the Theosophists a little over a century ago. Some of the top Nazis were Theosophists and the Nazis also borrowed this idea from the Theosophists that races inherit collective credit or blame for acts done in previous generations. The above quotes came from this page, God is the Author of Reparations by Ted Hayes
Hayes explains in this article, “The Braithwaite Papers by Ted Hayes,” that blacks cannot be racist and that only white people can be racist. This is also a racist concept.
Black peoples being racist, is an oxymoron! We historically are not racist nor should we allow anyone else to intimidate us into powerlessness by accusing us of such, especially people with straight hair and Caucasian physical features.
Remember, racism, relatively new in human history, has its beginnings with White or light colored skin with certain Nordic features and primarily straight haired Caucasian Europeans identifying us darker, so-called Negroid Africans (as they labeled Black peoples) with kinky or nappy hair as inferior to themselves based mainly on those physical appearances, etc.
By his dress and rhetoric on his website, Ted Hayes presents himself as an adherent of Black Hebrew-ism, which is known as the “Black Hebrew Israelites,” “Black Hebrew Nation” or simply the “Black Hebrews.”
Black Hebrew-ism is a millennial cult movement and a form of black nationalism with some doctrinal similarities to Obama’s own black nationalist sect, Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago. It is black supremacist in its doctrine. Black Hebrews believe that slaves brought to the Americas are the Chosen People, the descendants of a lost tribe of Israelites and that whites are collectively guilty for slavery.
In the article below, Tom Metzger, head of the White Aryan Resistance, is quoted as saying that the Black Hebrews are their black counterpart. See the article below.
Hayes’ bizarre, cult-like religious beliefs and his support for reparations — mandated by God — have not exactly been a secret, yet many conservative media personalities, Tea Party and Minutemen organizers have embraced him. Politics makes strange bedfellows, they say. Some of these people would willingly sell their souls, if it would help them advance their personal agenda, no different from the politicians we have now in this respect. However, if they expect a caricatured Afro-centric character, like Ted Hayes, to deliver significant black support, they are sadly very much delusional.
This is a clip of Ted Hayes speaking at a Tea Party Rally in Oceanside, Ca (near San Diego) on October 21, 2010. This rally was sponsored by the “Stop Taxing Us” group, founded by Gary Gonsalves.
