Dixie Now Too Racist For Alabama School

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

As the willful cultural genocide in this country continues, we now find that the song “Dixie” has to go from a school in Arab, Alabama. The song has “racist connotations” and so must be removed, replaced, shoved down the memory hole, where all “racist” instruments go except the institution of slavery and that only avoids the memory hole because the cultural Marxists can continue to use it as a political weapon to beat to death any who would be bold enough to stand up for the heritage and culture of the South–which must be destroyed at all costs.

And so the “fight song” of this school, which has heretofore been Dixie will have to be replaced with something else. How about The Communist Internationale? That song would be appropriate for every public school in this country, or perhaps Comrade Obama’s favorite, “I’d like to teach the world to sing” (everything except Dixie).

Southern songs, Southern traditions and culture, all need to go from Southern schools so your grandchildren will have no memory of their real history and heritage. If they still retain strong memories of their true heritage and culture then it’s not so easy to mold  their spiritual clay into pottery for the New World Order to fill with its spiritual and political offal.

Those who continue to sit idly by and do or say nothing while all this goes on will be guilty of complicity in the destruction of their children’s cultural memory. And those among their children that finally, through God’s providence, wake up and see what has transpired may well end up cursing them. If the kids ever get to the point where they say “Why didn’t you tell us?” how will they answer? Well, those ball games were really important you know.

A people that has no sense of its real history has no idea of where it should be going or how to get there. That’s the whole idea. Rob people of their history and culture and you rob them of their future and their future belongs to you!

You folks who are having your history and culture stolen and doing nothing about it need to reflect on that.

“Silent Sam” Going Back? Don’t Kid Yourself!

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Someone sent me, via email, while I’m still able to get stuff, a picture from http://www.dailytarheel.com/article/2018/08/law-behind-silent-sam a photo showing the police “surrounding” the Silent Sam statue as it lay on the ground after having been pulled down by a gang of Marxist vandals.

I found it rather ironic. The police waited to “surround” the statue until after the Marxist goons had ruined it. While they were in the process of doing their damage the cops just stood down and let them accomplish their mayhem. Undoubtedly, anyone who had tried to stop them from completing their destruction would have been arrested. This seems to be SOP for police departments around the country anymore–stand around while the Marxists do their damage to make sure no one bothers them while they are doing it. After the damage has been done, they “protect” what has been ruined. They seem to take the same approach when it comes to protecting legitimate protesters against Antifa or Black Lives Matter thugs–let the Marxists do what they want to whom they want and then arrest anyone trying to protect themselves from Marxist aggression. After all, it isn’t “nice” to resist the Marxists don’t you know.

It’s sort of like the police letting robbers rob the local bank and then arresting any civilian who attempts to either stop or chase them–and then surrounding the bank after the thieves have departed. When it comes to Marxist aggression that seems to be the SOP of most police departments anymore. You do have to wonder who gives them their marching (or standing down) orders. Are many of our cities and colleges so infested with Marxists that we can expect nothing else? If so, we have a major problem we haven’t even begun to address yet.

At any rate, an article on the Daily Tarheel by Casey Quam notes: “In the week following Silent Sam’s forced removal on August 20, questions over what will become of the statue have centered on the interpretation of N.C. Senate Bill 22. North Carolina General Statute 100-2.1, a section of Senate Bill 22, dictates that ‘a monument, memorial, or work of art owned by the state may not be removed, relocated or altered in any way without the approval of the North Carolina Historical Commission’, unless, among other reasons, the monument ‘poses a threat to public safety because of an unsafe or dangerous condition.’ According to the act, a publicly-owned object of remembrance may be temporarily relocated, and then replaced after no more than 90 days, only for the sake of an object’s own preservation,  or if the object is blocking construction zones. If it is permanently relocated, it must be relocated to a ‘site of similar prominence, honor, visibility, availability, and access that are within the boundaries of the jurisdiction.”

Sounds pretty straightforward, but by the time the  Leftist lawyers get through parsing all the language I’d be surprised is this law didn’t end up being applicable to everything except Confederate monuments! And if this state historical commission gets to finally decide, then we might ask where on the political spectrum they are coming from. If it’s the same place as some of the university and town officials, then God help us. Silent Sam will end up being buried in some warehouse forever!

The good folks in North Carolina are going to have to start doing some homework and finding out where their state historical commission is at politically so they will know how to proceed from there. Is the historical commission anywhere near unbiased,  or is it RED?

I hope I am wrong, but I have the sinking feeling that the folks in North Carolina, unless they really raise the roof over this, have seen the last of Silent Sam. Six months down the road, I’d love someone in North Carolina to be able to tell me I was wrong. But, after all, Silent Sam was Confederate–and based on past performances…..

So, A New Round Of Cultural Destruction

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Well, the cultural Marxists who are hell-bent on destroying Southern culture seem to be trying to play mind games with us poor Southern deplorables. They waited this year until the middle of August to start the cultural offensive that they started in April last year. All the better to keep us off balance and make us think they were going to let us alone this year. We have to start learning to disabuse ourselves of such foolishness. Those people will never, and I mean never, leave us alone until they have thoroughly torn down our culture and heritage and we better start getting that through our heads! Those  people are playing for keeps. Most of those on our side are just playing.

It’s really great to go to a march or a rally or write a letter or two–and then just quit and get ready for football or hunting season. We can take the rest of the year off now–we’ve done our bit. So while we plan our recreation for the rest of this year the cultural Marxists continue to work at the next phase of our cultural destruction.

You know what! They just may end up winning because, frankly, too many of our folks just don’t give a tinkers damn. Put on your Confederate uniform, wave the flag a little–fun and games! Rah, rah, rah! I’ve known people that, for them, putting on that uniform and marching in a parade is what it’s all about for them, and they never get any further than that. I’m not saying that we shouldn’t have a public presence our there, we should. But for too many of our folks that’s a far as it ever goes–and then what do they do when, like me, they can’t march anymore? They go home and sit in their easy chair and dream about those “good old days” that’s what!

Glory, glory, hallelujah, our Marxist adversaries march on, often to that very tune, while we vegetate.

Our cultural Marxist enemies (and they are Marxists of one stripe or another, like the skunk–lots of stripes there, too, never cease planning and working for our cultural destruction.

There was an excellent article by Dissident Mama on http://www.LewRockwell.com for August 27th. I don’t know who this good lady is, but she’s got it figured  out. She understands our enemies and what they are trying to do to us. She writes: “Modern progressives are just as evil in their bloodlust against the South as were William Tecumseh Sherman and Philip Sheridan. Today’s leftists may not be waging the shock-and-awe total warfare that the Union generals inflicted on Southern civilians (whites and blacks alike) and their dwellings, businesses, churches, infrastructure and food supply, but their aim is still the same: to have the Southern tradition and her people ‘annihilated and destroyed’.” She gets it. How many of us do?

She notes that modern progressives (really little more than Marxists) encourage “a kill-whitey message.” She observes that “They see Dixie as a scourge and the purging of it as their self-righteous calling. They’re godless puritans to the core.” I might disagree with her slightly here–they are not godless,  they just have a different “god” than the God of Holy Scripture.  Other than that, she’s right on the money. How many of our folks really grasp the nature of our enemies as this lady does? Not enough I fear.

They may, as she says, not be waging “shock-and awe” total warfare on us–yet! That will probably come later–if they can manage to soften us up enough by removing all our monuments and flags and by destroying our kids’ grasp of their culture and heritage via public education so they don’t think there is anything worth fighting for. As long as they control the vehicles of your kids’ education this is where we are headed. And please don’t think that I am calling here for the reform of public education–I am advocating secession from it. It is far beyond any meaningful repair.

So unless we wake up and smell the daisies, the future doesn’t look all that bright. I understand the Sons of Confederate Veterans has a new national cultural heritage director, Donnie Kennedy. Knowing Donnie and his strong commitment to our culture and heritage, he will do all he possibly can in that post. He can use help and prayers, especially prayers.

Understanding the nature of our adversaries is critical. Seeking the Lord’s help in defeating them is also critical.

The Hard Left Builds Nothing, Tears Down Everything Worthwhile

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

After watching the Leftists gorge themselves politically on a three-year binge to tear  down and destroy anything Southern and Confederate, the thought came to me, just today, that, the Leftists never really build or construct anything worthwhile. The Leftists spend their useless careers tearing down everything worthwhile that better people than they will ever  be have  built up. But, then, the Leftists are really nothing more than water carriers  for those that run the Deep State. I doubt that they are capable of building anything noble or worthwhile. They are little more than tools for destruction in the hands of those seeking  to destroy cultures or worldviews superior to their own.

And so it was, with a certain amount of anger, if not with surprise, I read the story about those “noble” Leftists in North Carolina that considered it their “patriotic” duty to tear down and destroy the Silent Sam monument  on the campus of the University of North Carolina while, so we are told, the police stood down and did nothing. I supposed had someone tried to  prevent the Lefties from doing what they did, he would have been arrested for “disturbing the (Leftist) peace.” I saw some photos of left-wingers smashing the monument with hammers and chisels. It takes an awful lot of hate to be that vindictive, but, then, this is what the Left is noted for, hate!

The monument was not there to defend slavery, but was rather a monument to the young men in UNC who had left school in order to defend their country against Yankee/Marxist invasion. But the Left has to claim they are fighting against slavery–that gives them a noble-sounding excuse to practice cultural destruction as well as material destruction, both of which they enjoy immensely. Although I was born in the North, I have a Confederate ancestor–and he was from North Carolina, so this Leftist destruction rather ticks me off.

I am willing to bet that those that agitate the Leftists into doing this sort of mayhem really know what the War of Northern Aggression was all about. They just want to make sure you don’t know. All I can say is that if the Leftists don’t realize, with all the research  material out there, what the War was really all about, they are either stupid, willfully ignorant or historically lazy, or some combination of all three!

They’ve been all too willing to listen to their Marxist professors instead of doing their own research, which they seem to lack the moral stamina to work at. Lots easier just to sit back and let Professor Marx tell you what he was told the War was all about. As far as doing your own research–forget that–much too time consuming and it cuts like crazy into your recreation time. So just forget about all that work. Listen up to what your Marxist professor has to say and then you can assume your morally superior (actually inferior) attitude about something you really know almost nothing about (while thinking you are a genius).

I remember, years ago now, during the Viet Nam War, a college student actually told me he thought us older folks should just listen to the kids his age because they were the ones that had time to do all the research as to what world events were really all about. I thought to myself (although I didn’t say it out loud because it would have cost me my job), “Junior, when you are finally dry behind the ears and have a little more living experience, then come back and see me, otherwise, just shut up because you don’t know what you’re  talking about!”

This is the sort of crap you get from these Left-wingers, some of whom are so steeped in the bovine fertilizer they spout that they don’t realize how inane they sound.

So let’s don’t kid ourselves. The Left is nothing more than a vehicle for and of hate, putty in the hands of their Deep State masters. They hate anything even remotely Southern or Confederate because, even in their ignorance, they realize the worldview of the South (and therefore of most Confederates) was, and to some extent still is, inherently Christian, while they in their willful apostasy are anti-Christian.

You can talk to these people, if they will listen, and even try to convert them. But you can never dialogue with them to the point where you have to accept some of their lie to get them to accept some of your Truth. If you get to that point, then back off!

John 14:6 is a good guideline in this  area.

Orwell Writ Large

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

There was a brief, but interesting article by Gary Benoit in the New American magazine for August 20th of this year. The title was   The Deep State and Its Subversive Designs. Mr. Benoit observed that: “Anyone who doubts the reality of the Deep State needs only to survey today’s major news stories to recognize both that the Deep State exists and that this unelected shadow government  within the executive branch of the U.S. government hates President Trump and is working to undermine and even overthrow his presidency.”

Yet, this attempted over throw of a legitimately elected president is defined by the Deep State as some sort of noble patriotism. The Deep State has on its hands a new president who refuses to play the political game by their rules and so they tell us (if we are stupid enough to believe it) the noble and “patriotic” thing to do is to overthrow him and  replace him with some political stooge who will play the game by their rules (and for their benefit, not ours). So the “loyal and honorable deep state has a higher duty. It’s called patriotism.” (Please refrain from rolling on the floor and  laughing your backside off!) The sad part is, they actually expect people to believe such drivel–and the even sadder part is–that some will.

This sort of weird mindset is totally Orwellian–you know–freedom is slavery, less is more…that kind of Orwellian. Or perhaps it’s also along the lines of Nikita Kruschev–we spit in their face and they call it dew.

So lets get this straight. According to the apologists for the Deep State, blatant treason in undeniably and nobly patriotic while adhering to a legitimately elected president is somehow harmful to the country. Treason is patriotism! How much more Orwellian can you get than that?

Mr. Benoit accurately noted that “America First” is anathema to the globalists, who will stop at  nothing to obliterate it, even if that means toppling the president.”

Make no mistake, if the Deep State/Council on Foreign Relations/Trilateral Commission manages to thwart the president’s agenda, either through direct overthrow or through compromising his program in some way, we will not stand a chance within the lifetimes of our great grandchildren of getting back what few  liberties we still have remaining. If they manage to pull this off you can kiss our Bill of Rights goodbye. It will be like you all elected Hillary as president, because the agenda you end up with will be hers.

Serious Christians, and others, need to pray about this and find  out what they can do to prevent it. A good place to start might be in obtaining a copy of the New American magazine for August 20th and starting to educate yourself on what the Deep State has in store for you and your children. Single copies are $3.95, with a $6.36 shipping charge. Mail your request to ShopJBS,  P O Box 8040, Appleton, Wisconsin  54912. Lots of worthwhile info in this magazine. Turn off the reality shows, walk away from the boob tube, and start finding out what you can do to preserve your kid’s culture and heritage, because once it’s gone it ain’t that easy to get it back again.

“There Was An Error Sending This Message”

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

I really wonder sometimes if someone is “monitoring” the email many, if not most, of us send and receive. I suppose that could be considered a rhetorical statement, as I really don’t wonder. I have a pretty fair country idea.

I’ve mentioned in the past, my friend in North Carolina, who had a good-sized email list. At the bottom of each mailing he used to include a small picture of a Confederate Flag. At a certain point in time, many of his mailings stopped going through and others that did just bounced back to him as “undeliverable.” Not  having had this problem previously (and it was increasing) he wondered just what the problem was. Finally at one point he became suspicious and, as an experiment, removed the little Confederate Flag from the bottom of his mailings. Guess what? I probably don’t need to tell you, as you have probably already guessed what I am going to say. All his mailings, minus the little Confederate Flag, started getting through again. Sheer coincidence I’m sure!

I have experienced some of the same thing. I once emailed an article about secession from my juno email address and I made the foolish mistake of using the word “secession” on the subject line. For some inexplicable reason juno could not manage to send this article out to my email list. I tried several times. No luck. The article just sat there like an email lead balloon–unsent. But then, remembering my friend in North Carolina and his situation, I took the word “secession” off the subject line and substituted the word “separation” for it. Needless to say, after I did that, the message went through–immediately if not sooner! I guess you could say “what a difference a word makes.” Both of these instances have gone a long way toward convincing me that someone, probably someone with a Deep State mentality, sort of “watches over” what we all send and receive, just to make sure, in their eyes,  we don’t slip the traces too far. They can’t always just refuse to flat out send the messages, even us deplorables would figure that out after awhile. So they kind of “nuance” their protests over deplorable emails if we tend to use certain “hot button” words or terms. At least for now! However, with all the internet censorship currently in the works, who knows where this will end up.

What with all the wildly unproven “hate mail” allegations proliferating against Alex Jones and others, who really knows where we are headed? The Globalist Powers that Be  may just decide that, for the good of humanity (theirs, not ours) they need to start censoring all the news except what they force-feed us on CNN (the Communist News Network). An attempt at such, just before the mid-terms, or a false flag scenario leading up to that, would come as no surprise.

Another interesting development, this time from aol  (America on Line) has been occurring for me of late, as well as a couple others who also use aol. Lots of folks, some of then politically incorrect, send me email messages, and some of them, depending on content, I make an effort to reply to, because their thoughts, or their courtesy to me, deserve a response. Usually I try to reply to them on the same thread they sent their original message on. But I am finding out, in the past few weeks, when I try to do that, I am unable to, and I get a message from aol–one I’m getting pretty well fed up with–that says  There was an error sending the message. And so it doesn’t go through. End of conversation! I’d say, in the past couple weeks, about 60% of the messages I try to reply to answer me with this happy little euphemism. It’s kind of like “Don’t bother–you can’t get there from here.” More and more, if I want to reply to  people who have emailed me I have to end up sending a totally separate message. These usually go through. So why don’t the others??? Am I supposed to get tired of trying and just quit or what?

More and more I am also finding that if I want messages, especially about my blog articles, to get through, I have to resort to nebulous-sounding titles or comments on subject lines.  Any title or subject line that really looks controversial, will probably guarantee the article goes nowhere–the print on the cutting room floor. And I am forced to do the same thing if I post a notice about an article on Facebook (which I usually only use to post notices about the blog articles).

So I don’t doubt for a New York minute that our email servers are being “presided” over by some of the more politically correct (cultural Marxist) among us. The question now remains—when will these “guardians” of the public good finally decide we are all better off knowing nothing about much of anything except the swill they choose to feed us?

Seeing what they are trying to do to Alex Jones and others, that day may not be far off. Although I am told that President Trump has finally addressed this issue publicly, we will have to see where that goes and how strongly he chooses to pursue it. Either way, at some point, we will have to address the question  of what we are going to do about it.

The Censors Have Something to Hide

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

For quite awhile now I have been observing the efforts of the Deep State and their Swamp Denizens to shut down free speech in this country. And let’s don’t kind ourselves–that is exactly what they are trying to do. The censors are trying to shut down any meaningful dialogue about where the country is headed so that only their views will be heard and no one else’s. Why you might ask? Simple–they have something to hide. They and those that pay them are doing things they don’t want you to know about–like trying to restrict your liberties and your free speech, but they can’t tell you that right out and so they seek to do  it via censorship.

Oh, they assure you, it’s all for the right reasons and it’s all for your own good, don’t you know. No, I am afraid most of us don’t know that and we don’t know it because it’s not true. It’s really for their (the censors) own good because they are mortally afraid that if enough Americans find out what they are really up to there might be a “grand necktie party” somewhere with them as the guests of  honor. That’s a situation they would prefer to avoid and so they try to hide the truth from us.

We see all  manner of noble-sounding euphemisms in the “News (what a laugh) Media”. Alex Jones and InfoWars  just have to  be shut down because they promote “hate.” No proof, no evidence of any kind to back up their wild allegations–we are all supposed to believe it just because they say it. There was a time when, if you made a controversial accusation against someone you had to provide evidence–documentation about your accusation.  I recall back in the 1950s and 60s if you called anyone a Communist you had to have the rock-solid evidence to put forth or no one would listen to you. And the “news media” complained if you didn’t have it. Seems those days are gone forever. Nowadays the  people in the “news media” can make the most far-out accusations against someone they don’t like and no one is supposed to have the temerity to dare to ask them for evidence.” Evidence! We just told you–isn’t that enough–how dare you not believe us! You know we wouldn’t lie, don’t you?” Sorry folks, but we don’t know that. The “news media” has been lying to us ever since I can remember. And they continue to spread the lies  the politicians tell us, because, after all, the news media and many of the politicians are little more than political stooges for those that really hold the reins of power in this country–people like those in the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission and the Bilderbergers. Don’t know who those people are? Then you better do some homework and begin to find out who the real unelected rulers of this country are.

Wonder why Donald Trump is having all the problems he’s having? These people are the reason. Trump is not one of them , not “one of the boys” and so the “boys” are working at finding some way to get rid of him,, but this truth needs to be censored out of the daily news reports because they have deemed that you don’t need to be aware of this. Better for them and their globalist agenda if they can keep you fat, dumb and ignorant.

And so our ever faithful “news media” lies about what it can’t totally cover up and censors as much as it can because their bosses really have lots of stuff to cover up. The censors always have something to hide from the  public.

My son writes a little free verse poetry once in awhile and just today, as I was working on this article he came up with one that goes along with it, so I will quote it here:

What lie will I see tonight?

I know exactly what I will see when I turn on my tv

Doesn’t matter the time, 6 am, noon, 10pm, or nine.

Don’t know why I keep checking in.

Because the truth for them is very thin.

In every story I see the lie,

the agenda that they always try.

Every channel gives me the blues

Whenever I tune in to the news.

His little poem pretty much tells you what you can expect in the way of truth, and it ain’t much.
