Spike Lee: America Built On Genocide, Slavery & Theft — He Gets Rude Awakening

Spike Lee spewed some of the craziest false claims during a recent radio interview. “America was founded upon genocide, slavery, and theft,” said the leftwing Hollywood director. He also claimed that “black Americans have never been given full citizenship” and that the founding of America “was immoral.” Well, poor Spike didn’t know what hit him when got a rude awakening. You’ll love this.

Spike Lee is probably one of the most radical leftwing directors in Hollywood today. And it’s a real shame. It is such a waste of a life that has been given so much, and still, he walks around with a gigantic chip on his shoulder.

Spike was the guest of Joe Madison on his Sirius XM radio show where he declared a litany of false history and propaganda right out of the Marxist playbook.

“The foundation of the United States of America is immoral, from the get-go. The foundation has been shaky from day one. This country was based upon the stealing of the land from native people and genocide against native people, coupled with slavery.” Spike Lee said. “Whenever this day comes, when we go back to supposed normalcy. What they called normal was abnormal.”

There is so much to impact in this faulty statement. The history of the world is one of progress, and with progress came towns and cities that had to be governed. To claim that the first European settlers “stole” the land from tribes of nomad Indians is ludicrous.

The other important point to make is about the American Revolution. Lately, we are seeing the Black Lives Matter movement attempt to justify their own violence by claiming they are doing the same thing as the first American patriots.

New York BLM leader Hawk Newsome made a disturbing comparison after Fox News’ Martha MacCallum asked him why he was threatening violence.

“Wow, it’s interesting that you would pose that question like that because this country is built upon violence. What was the American Revolution, what’s our diplomacy across the globe? We go in and we blow up countries and we replace their leaders with leaders who we like. So for any American to accuse us of being violent is extremely hypocritical,” Newsome said.

Let’s be crystal clear. The American Revolution was lead by moral men who had no choice but to respond to England who resorted to using their military, first. The Continental Congress voted and formed an army. If anything, the BLM violence does remind us of one revolution, the French Revolution, which was ruled by “the mob” who resorted to using the Guillotine. It was one of the bloodiest and evil revolutions in history.

But let’s get back to Spike Lee who had a few more gems to drop during his interview.

“We’ve been patriotic for this country from day one,” said Lee of black Americans. “We’ve been here 401 years and we still haven’t got, you know, a full citizenship. If that was the case, we wouldn’t be getting shot down in the street left and right.”

Lee also stated the death of George Floyd is linked to the enslavement of blacks. Lee wore a black baseball hat with “1619” embroidered on it. It’s an apparent nod to Nikole Hannah-Jones, the creator of the New York Times’ “1619 Project,” which won a 2020 Pulitzer Prize for commentary.

However, the Times had to acknowledge that the central claim in Hannah-Jones’s 1619 Project is false. In fact, everything the BLM movement is selling is based on falsehoods and lies.

Well, Americans gave ole Spike Lee a rude awakening on social media. 

“He should just shut up. He has no clue about all the people in our country who fought against slavery, and who didn’t believe in it, including the south. He also doesn’t know the history of other countries who practiced it for centuries!” tweeted Melody7473.


“Why does the Left always confuse America with the Soviet Union and Communist China? Public education or just mind-numbing stupidity and arrogance?” tweeted Jim Simpson.

“And @SpikeLeeJoint will not give up his prosperity earned because of white people paying to see his shit. Don’t accept another damn white dollar. Only accept money from Black people and you will be in the gutter somewhere,” tweeted Rural USA.

“Spike Lee is a nimrod. If you hate our country so much, why do you love profiting off of it? Hollywood ‘elites’ truly believe they are the ones to save us from ourselves. Prideful, stupid, and cocky,” tweeted George Revere.

“A country that Spike Lee has gotten very wealthy from being a citizen of. Like I said, I don’t give a f–k how this country was built, it built like every other country in the world. I have no guilt for it,” tweeted Twitter user “Melanie.”

“No, [America was built on] actually hard work, intelligence & guiding principles that actually result in success! If your assessment was correct then the vast majority of the world would be paradise!” tweeted Dobransky.

Americans blasted Spike Lee for being a successful African-American who got rich and famous thanks to the American way of life he so loathes.

Well, what do we expect when the false New York Times “1619 Project” makes the wild claim that Americans fought the Revolutionary War “to protect slavery.” The BLM thugs who are defacing the monuments graffiti “1619,” also calling attention to this wild claim that America has been a “racist nation for 401 years.”

Spike Lee and the tiny minority of radicals who are out to burn down America have a big surprise waiting for them. The vast majority of Americans can only take so much and will never allow the new “mob” in the streets to get the final say.
