If They Carried Both Flags Why Does the Media Only Find One “Racist?”

by Al Benson Jr.

Having followed the ethnic cleansing program of the cultural Marxists for several years it has come as no surprise that they have, again, attacked Confederate flags and symbols with much vitriol in the past six months or so. The shootings in Charleston gave them fresh impetus, a shot in the arm, if you will.

The total removal of anything “Confederate” has long been a part of their agenda, both the  ones on the street and those in board rooms in New York and Washington. Indeed, the ones on the street are little more than “useful idiots” for the ones in the board rooms. They are the cannon fodder for the revolution promoted by those who plan to remake American culture, most particularly Southern American culture, in their own image. These people are the ultimate idolators.

I have noted, for a couple decades now, how the “news” media has sought to connect the Confederate Battle flag to the Ku Klux Klan. This has been an ongoing project. This is one thought they have assiduously attempted to implant into the minds of the American public—KKK equals Confederate flag–it’s all the same, you have one you have the other, so just equate the two and don’t even bother to think about it (because beyond that they’d rather you didn’t).

Even for the media and the leftists, though, there are always some flies in the buttermilk. If you go back and follow some of the history down you begin to find it hasn’t always been that way.  This is what the anti-Southern cultural mind-benders would rather you didn’t do–follow the history down.

We’ve all seen photos of the (what passes for news) media of KKK marches, rallies, or what have you and there are always almost more Confederate flags around than there are people. Hint: this is not by accident. I saw a video tape once of a KKK parade in Northern Illinois that had two flag bearers at the front of the procession, one carrying a US flag and the other carrying a Confederate flag. The media person doing the video inadvertently focused in first on the guy carrying the US flag, and realizing he had goofed, he immediately switched and concentrated on the person carrying the Confederate flag for the rest of the video and you never saw the US flag again. This is so typical. In fact, I was surprised,  that this late in the cultural genocide game you could still see a US flag in a KKK parade. Most had been purged and replaced with Confederate flags. This was probably fifteen years or so ago.

While doing some research for another project, I happened to come across a whole batch of old photos of KKK rallies and marches from back in the 1920s and 30s. And guess what? They weren’t all in the South. One was in Washington, D.C.; another was in Ohio. I even found a picture of one in Minnesota–hardly the heart of Dixie! Turns out, if you do  a little research, you find that, in the earlier part of the 20th century the Klan was very prevalent in Ohio, Indiana and other Midwestern states, more so than in the South. I’m not saying the South didn’t have them, but they don’t seem to have had as many as the Midwest did. And somehow, I tend to doubt that all those Midwestern Klan members  were rabid and racist Southern rednecks. In fact, growing up in the North, I got to know a couple people in New England that had been Klan members in their earlier days. These people were Northerners. They had never lived anywhere near the South. They had been part of that great Northern former Klan population that no one ever mentions (or is supposed to be aware of).

One thing I noted in those old Klan photos–anytime they had a march or a parade you had more US flags on hand than you could shake a stick at. Yet this is never mentioned. Only the present day Klan (which is not nearly as big as people think it is) is ever talked about.  Only the current Klan carrying Confederate flags is ever noted–outside of thinly veiled attempts at making Nathan Bedford Forrest the chief bugaboo of the Klan–forever!

Now I realize I’m not even supposed to think of this, but, if the Confederate flag is “racist” because the Klan carried it, does that also make the US flag racist because the Klan carried it? Well? Don’t hear too many replies from the left. Of course I realize that, to the real Far Left, every flag in this country is “racist” except that of the old Soviet Union, that great leveler (with machine guns or otherwise) of society. But I do wonder why it’s okay to portray the Confederate flag as “racist” because certain groups carried it and then to ignore the fact that these same groups also carried the US flag. Maybe it’s not quite time to label the US flag racist in a major campaign yet.

There was a point in time when the KKK switched from carrying the US flag to carrying the Confederate flag. Why?

The Thief of Culture

by Al Benson Jr.

Three or four years ago I read a fictional book by Tony Hillerman called A Thief of Time. It was a story about people in the Southwest called “pot hunters”–people who illegally dig for Indian artifacts on federal land so they can sell them to artifact collectors, usually for pretty hefty sums. While I am not in favor of this sort of thing, neither am I in favor of how the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) treats Western folks that use or lease federal land. After all, the land, in theory, is supposed to belong to the public. In fact, it belongs to the Washington Empire, no matter what administration is currently in power.

Supposedly the “thieves of time” are stealing the past when they illegally take artifacts from “public land.”  It’s an interesting concept (and not one I totally disagree with) and it’s not generally something people even consider in today’s whirl of sports extravaganzas and reality shows. In that context maybe we should begin to think about the “Thieves of Culture” who are, even as I write this, trying to steal our culture and replace it with some socialist (Marxist) phantasm straight out of the Middle East or Eastern Europe. This, the current regime tells us, will be just great for the country and it gives us a golden opportunity to display our love and compassion for those from countries that hate our guts. All the more reason for inviting them over here, so they say. What I say to that isn’t printable.

In a recent column on http://www.newswithviews.com columnist Frosty Woolridge has said, and quite accurately, that: “With every third world immigrant entering the United States of America, our country loses its ethos. It loses its culture. It loses its language and it loses its religion. Ultimately, it loses its identity….”

That’s the real name of the game. That is the goal of the current regime–to so water down the culture and religion of this country that it is impossible to tell us from some “banana republic” over in Lower Slobovia. That’s what it’s really all about, with the potential influx of hundreds of thousands of new refugees. The current regime is busily working on this while most folks dumbly sit on their thumbs at home, bemused by whatever drivel the “nitworks” (with government sanction) decide to throw at us.  The total destruction of American culture, most particularly in the South, is the goal of the individual that sits in the White House (when he’s not in Hawaii playing golf on our dime) and it’s the goal of those who made sure he got to the White House to begin with. What do you think all this fuss over Confederate flags and symbols this past summer was all about? Cultural destruction, that’s what, and don’t think it’s finished yet. The thieves of culture recognize that most of the resistance they get to their plans comes from the South, a South with a Christian background and worldview–and they must destroy that. They are, after all, cultural Marxists and they are at war with us, even if we can’t quite seem to figure it out yet. They are in an ongoing culture war with us and it would be nice if a few more of the folks on our side of the fence quit competing with each other over who will be the Chief Couch Potato and stood up and fought back.

And it would be nice if more Christians stood up and fought back. I just read an article this morning about a woman professor at Wheaton College in Illinois, Billy Graham’s alma mater. This woman has decided that, in “solidarity” with the Muslims, she should wear a Muslim hijab during the Christian Advent Season.  She made quite a point of saying, on social media, that Christians and Muslims have the same God, and the college suspended her. In my opinion they should have fired her. At best, a statement like that can be considered blasphemous. Christians and Muslims do not share the same God, but then she went on to note that Pope Francis said the same thing. This demonstrates how influential the thieves of culture have been in the Church. Instead of the Church shaping the culture the thieves of culture have been busy influencing the Church, reshaping it, if you will. A woman who believes this kind of thing holds a position in a school that teaches future theologians and the head of the Roman Catholic Church thinks God the Father and Allah are the same! Evangelicals and Roman Catholics ought to be up in arms–but they won’t. Much easier to just sit at home and watch the tube–less hassle that way. And the  culture continues to be dragged yet another step closer to destruction because most Christians are just too blasted (I was tempted to use another word) lazy to get up and DO anything. Luther, Calvin, and Knox wouldn’t have been real pleased with this generation or the last couple preceding it. The thieves of culture have spent considerable time in the churches too.

The Church has become soft and complacent and mostly doesn’t want to do anything that might involve having to struggle to preserve what the Lord has given us. Much easier to just “go with the flow” and let the Lord take care of it all so I don’t have to get my theological hands dirty and I won’t have to DO anything that might interfere with Sunday afternoon’s football game.

My personal opinion is that, unless we start to wake up, the Lord is going to put us through the mill, and all those folks sitting by waiting for a secret, imminent rapture (non-involvement) will be in for much more than a culture shock. We are past being ripe for judgment. How many unborn babies have died since 1973? Unless we start to turn around (repent) the Lord just may well give us a couple generations of Sharia Law to get our attention. Most of what’s happened up to now doesn’t seem to be doing it! In 70 AD the Lord destroyed Jerusalem because the Jews refused to repent when they had been given the opportunity.  Makes you wonder if the Church’s 70 AD isn’t just over the horizon?

Destroy Your Flags–Destroy You

by Al Benson Jr.

Commentary has abounded in recent months that, after the attempted Ethnic Cleansing regarding Confederate flags and symbols, regarding anything Confederate, that, after a short breathing period to give Southern patriots a chance to go back to sleep, there will be an attempt of some kind next year in Mississippi to change the state flag with its St. Andrew’s cross into something that the cultural Marxists will find more acceptable.  In their left-leaning rationale anything that “offends” them has to go. Doesn’t make any difference how anyone else feels about it–they feel they deserve the final word–and they intend to have it. “Offended Lives Matter.” All they need to move forward is a sleeping populace and a lying :news” media and they will implement their agenda.

The fact that, years ago, the Mississippi  citizenry voted overwhelmingly to keep the present state flag means nothing to those people. THEY  don’t want it and so it has to go. If not now, then next year or the year after or whenever they can manage to finagle its removal, by whatever means possible, legal or otherwise. I think they’d dearly love to see the Hammer & Cycle  waving over the capitol in Jackson. Do they know what they are doing–that they are trashing your history and heritage? You better believe they do. It’s on their “to do” list–it’s what they live for.

Franklin Sanders, in the October 2014 issue of The Moneychanger  said, quite accurately, “Make no mistake! For any people, the past is their life.Cut off from their past, a people cannot have any future. Their future dies. So it is not trivial when they attack your flag–they are not attacking merely that symbol, but everything that symbol represents, your religion, your culture, and ultimately you. They understand that without your past, they destroy your future.” Stop and think about that for a moment.  They realize, even if you don’t (although you should) that if they can destroy your past your future will be theirs, not yours.

They are more than happy and willing to throw your cultural memories and traditions, what Mama taught you, and what the preacher at church told you, into the dustbin of history, along with your flags, because they have a plan for your future. You may not like their plan, but they intend to force it on you anyway–for our own good, so they say.

The cultural Marxists know what’s good for everybody’s future and they have a plan to make sure we all get there, whether we want to go or not. Ask the United Nations! They and our federal government have lots of plans for our “future.”  And to partake of all their beneficence all we have to do is give up all that is dear to us, faith, family, culture, memories, our sense of place, our God-given liberties, all of it.

And a major stumbling block to our partaking of their socialist utopia (and making life better for them, not us) is those Confederate flags.  They remind  people of so much they need to forget–opposition to tyranny, out-of-control government, limited government–all the stuff that needs to go so they and the UN can build a better world for us all in which they control our future and we have no say about anything except how quickly we can obey their edicts. Got to get rid of those nasty Confederate flags, especially if they are part of your state flag. If people voted to keep them once then it’s time for another vote–and another round of propaganda from the “news” media about how terrible they are.

Part of what you will be told about those that want to keep Confederate flags is that they are ignorant, racists, poorly educated, the dregs of society.  Makes you wonder what the educational level of those that voted for our current president in two elections was.

This next yer may well see, in Mississippi, another attempt to force another vote to change the design of the state flag–if they are willing to even let the people vote and don’t just try to change it via government edict like some politicians I can think of. And those of you that have your children in institutions of public “learning” will have to keep an eye on what they will possibly try to teach your kids about your state flag.

It looks like 2016 might be an “interesting” year. what with the presidential charade, and if the cultural Marxists are able to engineer another vote on the Mississippi state flag, it would be just great if the good folks there could vote again to keep their current flag and stymie the  cultural Marxist agenda for their state just a little bit.

 

The “Civil War” Was ALWAYS About Ethnic Cleansing

by Al Benson Jr.

We have all read in our Politically Correct (cultural Marxist)  “history”  books about how the noble and virtuous North went to war in order to wipe out the evil of slavery in the South and to preserve the Union (empire) from those treasonous, greasy Southern slave holders whose evil plan was to take their states out of the Glorious Union–and we all know that secession is treason–right?

This is the unmitigated hogwash that passes for “history” in our institutions of public learning and, sad to say, in too many private schools as well. If this were actually the case, one might question why the national government did not abolish slavery in the four slave states that remained in the Union. Even Lincoln’s infamous “Emancipation Proclamation” didn’t bother to do that. But we are not even supposed to think about all that–on with the agenda! And the agenda was, and still is, Ethnic Cleansing in the South (and eventually everywhere else once the South has been cleansed).

Historian and novelist Clifford Dowdey of Richmond, Virginia (now deceased) pointed that out for those astute enough to grasp it, in his book Lee’s Last Campaign, originally published back around 1960 and subsequently reprinted.

Dowdey noted, on page 57 that: “The Union population had been injected with a crusading spirit by Lincoln’s brilliant political war measure, the Emancipation Proclamation. This gave the equivalent of a slogan for the ignorant and the indifferent, while the necessary object of hatred for a crusade–‘the chivalry-ridden, slave-holding South’  was provided by the abolitionists and their powers in the Republican Party. Less than one fourth of the Southerners were associated in any way with slavery (scarcely more than ten per cent actually owned slaves) and active emancipationists included Lee, Jeb Stuart and A.P. Hill.  The chivalrous  attitudes were confined largely to plantation families, but the concept of chivalry particularly goaded non-privileged Northerners…Under the sanction of the slogan, the anti-Southern Republican Party enjoyed virtually despotic power in its policy of conquering the South by physical destruction.” And  earlier, on page 56, he had observed: “Lee saw from the beginning that the armed conflict grew from deeper roots than the difference of opinion over the Negro’s status or even preservation of the Union.” In other words, Lee saw the theological roots of the North’s vitriolic hatred for the South. That’s something most “historians” almost totally ignore.

As far as Lincoln was concerned, Dowdey told us back on page 50 that: “Lincoln assumed the responsibility for the consequences of total war;…he intended to heal the South’s wounds after its society was destroyed…” And on page 60 Dowdey noted, that “The changed nature of the war revealed that the forces arrayed against them waited only for their defeat by arms to obliterate the society of their beloved land.” In other words, the Yankee/Marxists in the North were planning on the total destruction of all Southern society and the replacing of it with something else. I believe that constitutes a pretty fair definition of Ethnic Cleansing.

Another astute observer of the Southern scene, author Frank Conner, said pretty much the same thing in his informative book The South Under Siege–1830-2000 when he stated: “Actually this cultural war has raged unabated since the 1830s, when Northern liberals decided to supplant Christianity with secular humanism as the official religion, and they selected the religious South as their battleground.  To understand what the (culture) war is really all about we shall review the battles of Northern secularism against Southern Christianity–many of which have been fought under the banner of black civil-rights. As those battles continue today, the opinion makers are attacking the Old South with ever-increasing rancor…the present day vilification of the Confederacy is part of a long term ideological war waged against the conservative white South for the purpose of destroying the Southerners as a people and rendering them socially, politically, and economically impotent.” And I might add that a large part of that agenda is also to render them spiritually impotent.

Whether Mr. Dowdey or Mr. Conner says it, they are both saying the same thing. Dowdey said it first around 1960 and Conner noted it again around 2000, and in the forty years in between, who paid attention? Not too many or we wouldn’t be in the situation we find ourselves in today. There is an on-going program among both political parties, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission–the Ruling Elite, that calls for the spiritual, mental and physical destruction of the South and particularly for the destruction of anything even remotely presumed to be Confederate. This all is, indeed, Ethnic Cleansing, or Cultural Genocide, and most Southern folks don’t even have a clue that this is happening or that it is an ONGOING program and has been for 150 years and more.

There is much more involved here than the concern over slavery, but current and past “historians” are mostly more than willing to go with the flow, write their politically correct books about the War, give their speeches and make big bucks by making sure they do nothing to rock the boat. They would simply rather you never learned about how your own society is being destroyed by “those people” I mentioned in the previous paragraph. If you remain ignorant then you can’t ask questions about why your society and culture are being destroyed.

Mr. Dowdey made the statement that, at some point, the War “changed.”That’s the one thing I disagree with him on. I believe that Ethnic Cleansing, particularly here in the South, has always been on the agenda since day one. Other than that, his book is right on the money and if you can still find a copy on Amazon.com or some other place, then grab it. In the same vein, if you can find a copy of Frank Conner’s book I would urge you to pick that one up too. It’s long, over 700 pages, and I realize most folks today hate to read anything longer than the football scores on their local sports page, but we should really work at getting ourselves back into the habit of real reading, especially where our history and culture are concerned. Frank Conner’s book may be long, but it’s not difficult reading. He didn’t write it for college professors, he wrote it for ordinary folks, you and me.

If your heart and mind have been alerting you that something is decidedly wrong all across the country, but especially here in our South, (and after living here for over 13 years I consider it mine; it’s home) then you need to get these books if at all possible and start to find out why the society and culture you know and love is being systematically destroyed and you are being rendered  imminently replaceable by a horde of Third World terrorists and hooligans.
