“Racist” Cows?

by Al Benson Jr.

We have been duly informed by the politically correct, the cultural Marxists among us, that anyone politically to the right of Ho Chi Minh or Fidel Castro is a “deplorable” racist. Evidence  for this accusation?  Well, who needs evidence? Just say it long enough and loud enough and people will believe it. The Social Justice warriors way over on the Far Left fringe have decreed it. Ain’t that enough? After all, who would even think of questioning “social justice” or its  provocateurs?

However, in recent days the social justice campaign seems to have reached new and more glorious  heights. According to the website Intellihub the animal rights group PETA has continued to add to its list of “unusual” claims, and this time they have put out a video that literally claims that drinking milk just might mean you are a closet racist. Intellihub recently said: “The group posted the video on Friday in a Tweet that reads, ‘Did you know that milk has long been a symbol used by white supremacists?”

Wow, I didn’t know that did you? Well, they say you learn something new every day (even if it is slightly off the wall). So now we have had the ultimate tool of the Far Right white supremacy crowd exposed for what it really is–Milk, white milk! Well, if it’s white it must be “racist” right?  I mean, everything white is racist isn’t it? Makes you wonder about snow doesn’t it?

So I thought, in view of this startling revelation that we ought to take this whole racist scenario one step further and expose yet another layer of deep-rooted racism–Cows!

I mean, after all, the brown cow eats green grass but she gives white milk, so it stands to reason, at least among the progressive Left, that the cow is racist too. Doesn’t it? What other logical conclusion could a devout cultural Marxist come up with? If she wasn’t racist couldn’t we, at least once in awhile, depend on chocolate milk from her? The fact that she continually provides only white milk must indicate that the cow, knowingly or not, has deep racist tendencies.  And what about her owner? He has to be a flaming racist too. Do we dare ask how many cows he has that only give white milk? Is there a right-wing conspiracy here among the agricultural set to flood the country with white milk? If so, this needs to be exposed. The Communist News Network should send out some hot-shot reporter, have him sneak around the dairy farm and get some samples of that white milk. Then he could have them tested for the amount of inherent racism they might contain. Anything over 50 grams per udderful would be enough to seal his journalistic career forever.

We must realize that this is a serious problem!  Racist milk from racist cows is flooding the country. Valiant anti-racists just can’t obtain brown, yellow, red, or black milk–all these miserable bovines today provide for us is this insipid, racist white stuff. Why it’s enough to gag a maggot!

The social justice folks need to start scratching around under the rocks and barrels to see if they can find a friend somewhere in Congress, one who might be ready to expose all this. Once they produce such a specimen he could introduce mandatory legislation nationwide that would force all daily farmers to inoculate their cows with something approved by the FDA that would turn the color of the milk given by cows into something besides white. I imagine, to the Flakes over on the leftist fringe, that would seem to be a reasonable solution to this horrible problem.

Seem to me I have seen an article or two in the local LameStream Media outlets that discussed in depth the traumatic experiences undergone by those that were forced to drink white milk. Having to drink white milk was more traumatic for them than someone having tipped over their little red wagons when they were three years old.

I know you can get chocolate and strawberry milk flavorings at the local super market, but even if you buy and use them, somehow it just isn’t the same when you realize the milk was white to begin with.

So there has to be some solution that could be introduced that would call for more federal regulation and at least one more layer of bureaucracy to ease the unemployment problems that Obama’s stimulus packages didn’t quite take care of.

I can see it now–pre-planned spontaneous street demonstrations all across the country, with people marching and carrying signs that say “White is Right; Strawberry is Red; and Chocolate is—whatever!” And you thought Trump’s Russian scenario was something!  Brother, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet!

A Little More Anti-Southern Media Propaganda?

by Al Benson Jr.

In getting on the computer to check my email the other day I ran across one of those classic surveys you often find on the Internet. This one listed all the different states in the country and purported to tell you which were the best ten states to live in and which were the ten worst states to live in

No doubt we have all seen this type of thing on the Internet from time to time. I don’t know if “survey” is the proper word to describe these things or not. They cover all manner of geographical topics–what are the ten best cities in the US to live in and what are the ten worst; what are the areas of the country that people are the most content in, or the least content in; what parts of the country have the cleanest air–state by state; what part of the country is the least racially prejudiced–state by state;  and what parts of the country are the most economically deprived–state by state.

Over the years I’ve checked out a batch of these just to see what conclusions they came up with, although after the first two or three I’d checked, I found there was a pattern to most of these. No matter what the subject covered was, the Southern states always seemed to end up at or near the bottom of the list. Northern “paradises” like New Jersey, New York, Michigan or Illinois always seemed to be close to or at the top of the list, while Louisiana, Georgia, Mississippi or Alabama always seemed to bump along somewhere in the bottom dozen.

These “surveys” or whatever you want to call them leave the distinct impression that the frozen North is heaven on earth, while the South is such a gosh-awful place that no one in his right mind would ever go there if he didn’t absolutely have to.

I hate to burst the surveyors’ politically correct little bubble (well, not really) but I think they’ve got a lot of it backwards, a not uncommon event among the politically correct.

Outside a couple years in West Virginia, a brief sojourn for me in Oklahoma before I was married, and myriad trips to the Western states over the years, my family and I have spent most of our lives in the North. Now it wasn’t all bad and there were some really good folks we knew (who were not Yankee types), but I have to tell you, after fourteen years in Louisiana, I have no desire to go back north to live. We are more content in the South than ever we were in the North, and we’d only go back under extreme duress, not by happy choice. Our son has now come south and is over in East Texas, and he really likes Texas.

One place, however, that I do have to agree with these “surveys” is when they deal with economic issues. The South is always listed as the most economically barren part of the country, with more folks at or below the poverty level and more folks on food stamps (although I don’t know how they outdo Chicago and Detroit) than most other places in the nation. And there is a reason for that–and not an accidental one. It was not always so. In fact, up until the War of Northern Aggression, the South was the most prosperous part of the country. After the shooting part of that war was over the tables were turned. When “reconstruction”  (actually deconstruction) was visited on the South  by a “benevolent” Yankee/Marxist regime in Washington, the South was turned into the poorest part of the country. And again, need I stress that this was no accident? Didn’t think so.

For those that would appreciated a little in-depth study as to the reasons for this situation I would urge you to read Punished with Poverty–The Suffering South by James and Walter Kennedy and published by Shotwell Publishing LLC of Columbia, South Carolina. You can find it on Amazon and it isn’t all that expensive but it is informative. In one place the Kennedys quote a Northern newspaper that stated: We mean to conquer them, Subjugate them… Never would traitors be permitted to ‘return to peaceful and contented homes’; instead they ‘must find poverty at their firesides and see privation in the anxious eyes of mothers and the rags of children’.  Now I submit–here is Yankee charity at its highest point!

To bear witness to this, Francis Butler Simkins wrote in A History of the South that “As soon as the federal troops got a foothold in the South property was seized and sold for nonpayment under the Direct Tax Act…It is estimated that the federal taxes collected in the South in 1865-68 exceeded the entire amount the federal government and private Northern agencies spent on Southern relief and reconstruction during that period.” Or, as one Yankee general said in Louisiana, during the Red River Campaign in 1864: “We didn’t come to buy, we came to take.” And take they did! If this is accurate, and I have no reason to think it isn’t, then the Yankee/Marxists actually turned a profit on “reconstruction” over and above what they just stole outright.

All that to say this: before you blame Southern folks for being lazy and shiftless and whatever else you can come up with, read the Kennedy Brothers’ latest book and it will give you a very good indication as to why “it is what it is” in the South, even today.
