February the Twenty-eighth

This day in history:

2/28/1692 - Salem witch hunt begins

This would be where several known Christians were accused by several known witches of practicing witchcraft. The court, overseen by a former slave-trader posing as judge, condemned the Christians to death solely on the word of the confessed witches. Revisionists have perpetuated the lie that this was the opposite of what it really was. The grandson of the slave-trader, Nathaniel Hawthorne,  later continued his family work by devoting himself to falsely casting Christians in as bad a light as possible.


2/28/1854 - Republican Party formally organized at Ripon WI

Formed for the primary purpose of ending the slave trade. Their main opponent, the Democrat party, remains committed to the enslavement of Blacks even to this day.


2/28/1983 - Final TV episode of "MASH" airs (CBS); record 125 million watch

It was good while it lasted, but it had run its course. The Korean War itself only lasted three years. Besides the show was giving too much clout to Liberal Moron, Mike Farrell.


2/28/1994 - Brady Law, imposing a wait-period to buy a hand-gun, went into effect

The NRA opposed this, offering instead an instant check method to verify the customer's legal right to purchase a gun. Liberal lawmakers instead chose to go with the Brady Bill, which required no background check. Criminals simply waited for their guns, since background checks cost too much for shop owners to implement, and the Brady Bill didn't require them (efforts to require it without the system proposed by the NRA were rejected as being too costly -- thus being an “unfunded mandate”). Eventually lawmakers switched to the NRA supported legislation of a computerized instant background check -- but the MSM continued to refer to it as the “Brady Law.” In an effort to fool stupid people (their main supporter base) Sarah Brady's organization eventually changed its name.


Births

2/28/1928 - Smokey The Bear

Deaths

2/28/1979 - Mr Ed

...Oh, for those of you who don't know who they are...Smokey the Bear was a bear cub that had been found in a recently burned forest. He was adopted as the mascot for Fire Prevention. Mr. Ed was the horse used for the television show by the same name about a talking horse. A failed remake was attempted in 2004, but the viewing public lost interest since it seemed too much like the recent movie made by and starring a talking horse's behind.
