The state of Mississippi will probably be attacked and subjected to yet another round of ethnic cleansing via its state flag. The cultural Marxists, building on events that transpired last year, seem to feel that they can sound the death knell for Confederate symbols all across the country, and the Mississippi State Flag is one of their main targets.
If possible they will seek to do it without a vote of the citizens of Mississippi. They will seek to do it, if left to their own devices, through a legislative redesigning of the state flag which will totally emasculate any real cultural meaning from it. They are, after all, in the business of destroying Christian and Southern culture. That is one of the foremost items on their to do list.
So, look in this coming year for a barrage of false accusations regarding the flag. The prostitute press will greatly aid them in this, as they owe their souls to those who want to be rid of any and all Confederate symbols, be they in Jackson or New York and quite frankly, most of them don’t care if they lie to accomplish that or not.
So you will be told that the Confederate Battle Flag on the Mississippi State Flag places Mississippi “out of step” with the rest of the country. It makes Mississippi way too “non-conformist” and everyone should want to conform to the cultural Marxist worldview shouldn’t they? Well, no, actually they shouldn’t. If more people understood the Marxist worldview hopefully they would oppose it. And actually, what’s wrong with being non-conformist? When you look at where some of these states are headed today, like California and New York, do you really want to be “conformed” to that? We are told by the cultural Marxists that we need “diversity.” Only problem is that they get to define what the term means. Real diversity would include those who do not conform to the status quo. But if you understand the cultural Marxists then you realize that’s not really what they mean.
Then they will try to convince you that because the Battle Flag is on Mississippi’s state flag, that shows you that Mississippi supports and endorses slavery. In all honesty, folks, get real! The 13th Amendment passed in 1865 outlawed slavery. It has been gone for over 150 years now. The Confederate Battle Flag was only ever a soldiers’ flag and black soldiers fought under it along with whites, American Indians and some Mexicans. It was never an endorsement of slavery. It had nothing whatever to do with slavery just as the vast majority of men who fought under it had nothing to do with slavery.
The Battle Flag, whether part of Mississippi’s State Flag or not, hasn’t changed, but peoples’ perception of what it was has been twisted and manipulated so most people, black or white, don’t really know the history or the facts.
I will admit that certain undesirable groups and individuals have abused and misused Confederate flags. However, if you understand accurate history, you will realize that what those people have done through their misuse of the flag does not change what the flag was originally all about. All it does is to change the perception. And that is exactly what their misuse was intended to do.
So in this coming year, as the deluge of deliberate disinformation about the Battle Flag on the state flag is shoveled into your faces, before you buy into it, take the time and make the effort to find out the truth about the flag. The St. Andrews Cross on the battle flag is a Christian symbol and that symbolism ought to tell you something.
Why is it that no African slave was ever brought to the U.S.A. on a slave trading ship flying the Confederate flag but thousands upon thousands were transported on Northeastern Slave Trader ships flying the U.S.A. flag…yet it is the Confederate flag that never flew over ships transporting slave to the U.S.A. or anywhere else that blacks, ignorant radicals and atheist evolutionists want erased from American history? We truly are living in a world turned upside down…
We aren’t supposed to ask questions like that. They aren’t politically correct according to cultural Marxist thinking–which is just the reason we need to keep asking them as loudly as possible. There are still some folks out there that can be reached with the truth–not as many as we could wish for–but some.
Most attacks come from people outside Mississippi. I do not expect that to change in 2016. Facts mean nothing to these people who will stoop to the lowest level to get their way. We as Mississippians need to try to educate those who us with facts that cannot be disputed — make them look stupid in front of their peers.
Agreed. One thing we need is a good vigorous education campaign as well as exposure to show where “those people” who oppose the flag are really coming from–and where some of them are from.
Your misuse of ethnic cleansing is duly noted.
You will have to pardon me if I disagree.
