Marxist Cultural Genocide takes many forms, everything from destroying the cultural symbols of a people to making them feel guilty about who they are, making them ashamed to be what they are so they long to be something else.
Ever since the supposed end of the War of Northern Aggression (it never truly ended because it was a culture war) in 1865 it has been the main chore of the Yankee/Marxist propaganda mills to make sure the Southern people never felt good enough about themselves or their Cause that they would stand up and defend either their Cause or themselves. These subversive tactics ranged everywhere (and they are blatantly apparent in our day) from the removal of Confederate flags, statues and even street and park names to trying to make Southern folks feel guilty about their Southern accents. I think I’ve mentioned this before, but I once talked to a couple of nurses in a doctor’s office I visited. They noted the difference between my accent and theirs and they told me “we sound stupid.” I tried to disabuse them of such foolishness and asked them right out “who told you that you sound stupid?” No reply, but they were convinced that their Southern accents made them sound dumb, ignorant, or whatever and I could not convince them otherwise.
They even have courses in some colleges to help Southern young folks “get rid” of their Southern accents and sound just like those cookie-cutter models you see on the network “news” programs. Yuk!!! Give me a good Southern accent anytime! I guess one way to promote egalitarianism is to try to make everyone sound alike. Again, yuk! No matter what noble sounding reasons they attempt to give for this kind of thing, it is still cultural genocide. You are consciously tearing down Southern cultures and speech patterns and what are you replacing them with–a New Jersey accent? Heaven help us!
I’ve been watching much of what has gone on in Lexington and Charlottesville, Virginia recently, where Confederate flags are being removed, not allowed to fly anywhere except maybe on one day a year, or where holidays commemorating Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson are being “removed” so they are no longer celebrated–but you’ll notice they are quick to celebrate Martin Luther King day or Black History month. You have to wonder in these towns what holiday will replace Lee-Jackson Day, the celebration of Che Guevarra’s birthday maybe or Fred Shuttlesworth Day? If you don’t know who these last two names are, look them up while you can still find them on the Internet, before it is “neutralized.”
One major thing guaranteed to make Southern folks ashamed of who they are is the slavery question. This has been trotted out for so long by so many that it has finally gotten old. Southerners are constantly having the slavery issue thrown in their faces. Like they never had slaves in the North? Again, do a little homework. There is still evidence on the Internet (though it may disappear shortly) that shows that slavery was a going concern in the North. Most of you have probably heard of the state of Rhode Island, but how many of you know the full name of the state? It is the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations. Want three guesses as to why they named it that? Anyone that informs you that they never had any slaves in the North really hopes you are dumb, and if you are that dumb, maybe he can sell you a gold brick–genuine gold at bargain basement rates! Just give him your bank account number and he’ll deposit it in your account immediately if not sooner. The major difference between slavery in the North and in the South was that the Northern folks did away with it a few years earlier than the South did. And many Northerners that had slaves sold them South and after they’d got paid for them, told Southern folks that having those slaves was a sin and they should get rid of them. If it had been such a sin then why didn’t the Northerners emancipate them instead of selling them? You see, guilt often depends on whose ox gets gored (or who makes the profit).
One way the Yankee/Marxists have been able to instill guilt into Southern folks is via the public school system. You train three or four generations of public school kids with the idea that what their ancestors fought for was inherently evil and eventually, believe it or not, you are going to come up with a batch of kids that really believes that, and they end up feeling guilty because of who they are and not because of anything they ever did. I recall talking to a pastor once who told me that “after the War Between the States the South was the most heavily brainwashed part of the country.” He was right. Having lived down here for several years (and even before that) I have seen examples of it. Iv’e met Southerners who feel so much guilt over being born in the South that they feel this compelling need to atone for that sin by embracing Abraham Lincoln and the Union flag and denouncing as traitors anyone who will not do that. Someone from Georgia did that to me once and I replied with Patrick Henry’s famous quote “If this be treason then make the most of it.” I found it ironic that he, born and raised in the South felt the compelling need to wrap himself in Lincoln and his collectivist cause while I, born and raised in the North, felt, in the words of my friend, Donnie Kennedy that “the South was right.”
This kind of cultural genocide continues today, even as I write this. There are Marxist mentalities in Washington, New York, and other environs around the country that are working overtime to destroy the culture of the South, a culture more biblically based than anything they ever grew up in. I have long contended that the Christian base of Southern culture is really what they are trying to destroy. I haven’t yet seen anything to make me change my mind. The Christian faith is really hated by those people and those people actively work at trying to destroy it.
The Cultural Genocide Marxists are at war with the Christian faith and it’s time more of the Christians woke up and realized that.
