You Americans Don’t Deserve No Stinkin’ Heritage Preservation!

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Well, it’s now official, from a leftist shill in the Harris/Biden Regime, any American seeking to preserve his or her cultural heritage is a potential Nazi!

According to an article for July 17th on https://www.informationliberation.com by Chris Menahan that is now the new line. The articles observes: “Samantha Vinograd, the Department of Homeland Security’s new acting assistant secretary for counterterrorism and threat prevention in the office of Strategy, Policy and Plans is a former CNN analyst who said the idea of American trying to preserve their heritage makes her ‘sick’. While appearing on CNN in March 2019 Vinograd slammed President Trump for giving a speech at CPAC about the importance of preserving our heritage.”

She said “Preserving your heritage, reclaiming our heritage, that sounds a lot like a certain leader that killed members of my family and about six million other Jews in the 1940s.” It would seem that Vinograd cares about her own family’s heritage but doesn’t give a tinker’s damn for yours. Are you Southern Heritage folks paying attention here? You should be. This woman is telling you that you are a potential Nazi if you care about your heritage, history and culture. Yours doesn’t matter. Hers does! Do you get the message? Her type of individual is what the Harris/Biden Regime thrives on and what they will, at some point, use to seek to deprive you of your right to try to preserve your heritage and culture.

Up to this point they have sought to discredit us by tearing down or monuments and removing our flags and telling everyone stupid enough to listen to them that our ancestors fought a war to preserve their right to keep slaves. That was a monstrous lie, but they got enough “useful idiots” to believe it to make things difficult for us. And they have “educated” enough of our own folks in their public brain laundries to believe that “it can never happen here” in regard to the destruction of our liberties and our culture. But it is happening and many of us have not got the sense to realize that. I hope these folks wake up before it is too late, but I am not optimistic at this point.

Too many of our Southern folks seem to believe they can promote their Southern heritage by watching the NASCAR races and they don’t have to do anything else. I hate to disillusion you all, but it will take a lot more than that. You will have to learn to work to preserve and promote your heritage. That means getting on the internet ,doing some homework, finding out what the historical issues are and why your heritage and culture are worth preserving.

Think about it this way—if your heritage and culture were not worth preserving then the leftists would not be out there trying to destroy them. The enemies of your history and culture are all over there on the political and theological left. Destroying Southern history and culture is a major tenet of their religious faith. Ask yourself if, with your Christian faith, you are willing to work to undercut their false religion and their wrong political conclusions. If you are not, then you have lost your culture already but don’t realize it yet. You may, at some point, but then it may be too late.

The vast majority of your Confederate ancestors did not fight to preserve slavery. They fought because their states were invaded and their rights were being taken away (and I am not talking about the right to own slaves).

It seems that the Harris/Biden Regime plans to go after anyone who strives to preserve their history and heritage, paint them all as Nazis, and then destroy their history, heritage and culture. The question is–are you willing to put up with that?

Another Anti-Southern Hit Piece?

by Al Benson Jr.

Member,, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Usually I try to avoid as much of the so-called “news” put out by the Fake News Empire as I can. Most of what comes out of the swamp in Washington these days has the potential of making one physically ill if one is exposed to too much of it.

But there are times when we are forced to look at some of it. I came across an article on https://www.msn.com just last evening, July 15th, that I felt needed to be checked out. The article started out with a picture of one lone man, in what looked like the Capitol Building in Washington, carrying a Confederate flag. My first thought was “well, here is another article that will seek to portray the South and its people as evil and domestic terrorists because most of us didn’t hold our noses and vote for Biden.”

And while I still think that was the main intent, I noted that the article went on to quote from a recent poll by an outfit called https://brightlinewatch.org which was of interest. It noted that 65% of Republicans in the South and 43% of Republicans in the Rocky Mountain states would be in favor of secession. News Week carried the same article https://www.newsweek.com and noted that “A 66% majority of Republicans in 13 Southern states including Texas and Florida are in favor of seceding from the union, according to a poll released Wednesday by Bright Line Watch. Half of all independents in the South agreed, while only 20% of Southern Democrats were on board.” The article also noted that “…43% of Republicans in states near the Rocky Mountains said the same.”

An article on https://mises.org for February 19th of this year noted a similar poll back at that time that said 50% of Republicans in the South supported the idea of secession. If the Mises Institute article is correct, and I have no reason to doubt them, that means Southern Republican support for secession has increased by 15 points since February.

Given the fact that the results of the 2020 election are, shall we say, highly suspect, then the reason for the increase for Southern and Western secession is not hard to figure out. To put it bluntly, most Southern and Western Republicans feel they were screwed in the last election. That’s one reason you have so many states now doing audits. And the fact that you have the Democrats moving heaven and earth to try to prevent those audits tells you something about the results of the last election. As Patrick Henry, another Southerner, once said “I smell a rat.”

Most Southern folks do not feel they will get a fair shake from the current Regime. I know I don’t. The current Regime seems bound and determined to undercut and remove the God-given liberties Americans possess, North, South, East or West. The Democrats, and even some Republicans are okay with that, which means that, at heart, they are potential dictators.

Such people do not hesitate to try to go beyond the law in their quest for power and control.
And if they can succeed in making both the South and West look bad in the bargain, so much the better for them–but not for us. These people need to be lawfully resisted and exposed for the would-be communists that they are.

As far as the secession question goes. I would recommend a short book by Ron Kennedy, published by Scuppernong Press called Red State Red County Secession–Creating a Nation of our Own. It will definitely give you some food for thought on the secession question and on the issue of nullification as well.

Get Vaccinated–Or Else!

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Notice how some of these scientific and medical “experts” keep changing the goalposts. It’s almost like they are getting directions from someone else who is telling them what to say and when to say it.

Way back when, they informed the public that if they just got the two shots of vaccine that would take care of any problems with the Chinese Virus and they wouldn’t have to worry anymore about it. Now they are engaged in moving the goal posts again.

An article on Russia Today for July 9th observed that: “US health regulators have said that a third dose of coronavirus vaccine is unnecessary ‘at this time,’ but noted that could change with new data, after Pfizer revealed plans to seek emergency authorization for a booster shot.” Seems there is now a new strain of the Chinese Virus out there and that will change everything. The article continued: “The announcement comes after Pfizer’s chief scientific officer, Mikael Dolsten said the pharma giant intends to request approval for a third vaccine dose sometime in the next month.” Anyone see a pattern here? After everyone has had a third booster shot, then how long will it be before they need a fourth booster shot, and then a fifth booster shot? And how much money will Pfizer make out of all this? You can bet they ain’t doing it for nothing/

An article of https://www.infowars.com for July 11th also noted that: “A Department of Homeland Security training program has provided a model for the federal government to normalize mass public quarantine measures despite the fact infections and deaths are dropping in the U.S. A website by the Rural Domestic Preparedness Consortium (RDPC) a training provider for the Department of Homeland Security, outlines how to begin rounding up unvaccinated American citizens for mass quarantine centers This 8 hour instructor-led course is designed to provide the knowledge necessary to begin planning for situations requiring the isolation and quarantine of a large portion of a local, rural population.” In other words, when push comes to shove, they are coming fr you folks in the country! You need to be aware of that. And this article continues: “This disturbing revelation comes as the Biden administration prepares to deploy door-to-door vaccine ‘strike forces’ nationwide, which, according to internal documents will entail clearing buildings and flagging unvaccinated individuals for quarantine measures.” To put it bluntly, you will end up in a FEMA camp unless you get vaccinated! So much for freedom of choice in Amerika!

I came across another article, which I cannot verify for certain on https://americasfreedomfighter.com and it noted: “It’s no longer a conspiracy theory. A bill in New York, SB416, will utilize FEMA camps and forced vaccines to deal with people who ‘MAY’ be contagious or a public health threat. Who gets to determine who is interred in these camps? The ruling class, of course.”

There was an informative article in The New American magazine for July 5, 2021 by Rebecca Terrell entitled Doctors Debunk The Medical ‘Consensus’. It dealt with the lockdowns imposed on us during the “pandemic” and the harm they have done. In this article, one doctor, Reiner Fuellmich, noted that “This corona virus…must be renamed a ‘Corona Scandal’ and those responsible for it must be criminally prosecuted and sued for civil damages…An international network of lawyers will argue this biggest tort case ever, the corona fraud scandal which has meanwhile unfolded into probably the greatest crime against humanity ever committed.”

Another article in the same issue of The New American was entitled Mask Confusion: Infringing on Individual Rights. It dealt with the whole issue of those cloth masks everyone had to wear during the “pandemic” and whether they actually did any good or not. The article said: “A retrospective view of the past year provides answers and reveals how individual rights were trampled by masking requirements and baseless mandates emanating from manipulation , fear, confusion, and lack of information and understanding rather than from actual science.” In the same article was a picture of a maskless Anthony Fauci, the big Hillary Clinton supporter, sitting with friends. A classic do as I say, not as I do scenario.

So this is where we are at right now. Big Pharma is all set to make more millions off booster shots and some states seem more than willing to “quarantine” those who dare to refuse “the jab.” So where are American’s God-given rights and freedom of choice in all this? They are willfully trampled on unless there is massive resistance to all this.

This from https://www.lewrockwell.com just this morning: By Becky Akers: “The Biden administration is casting conservative opponents of its Covid-19 vaccine campaign as dangerous and extreme. The White House has decided to hit back harder on misinformation and scare tactics after Republican lawmakers and conservative activists pledged to fight the administration’s stated plans to go ‘door-to-door’ to increase vaccination rates. The pushback will include directly calling out social media platforms and conservative news shows that promote such tactics. Patriots bewail this horrific , tyrannical intrusion into our communications–but the more astute realize it’s nothing new: the Deep State has been manipulating Hollywood, the press, popular music and even our correspondence for well over a century. The only difference is that now said control has come out into the open. That doesn’t make it worse, but it does make it scarier. Think of the contempt Our Rulers hold for us when they freely confess their abuse: they’re admitting it because they doubt we’ll do anything about it.” Will we???

Schools or Indoctrination Centers? The Answer Should be Obvious

by Al Benson Jr.

As time goes on we are learning more and more about how public schools are pushing this Marxist oriented Critical Race Theory garbage. And I call it garbage because that is what it is The agenda for this is to cause hate and division between the races so they will never be able to come together and realize who their real enemies are and what those enemies are doing to all races.

The fact that those enemies are able to use the public schools in this country to promote their leftist propaganda should show people who really controls the public schools in this country. And I am not going to advocate that we get in there and fight to take “our” public schools back. That has been tried and it is an exercise in futility. The public schools were never, and I mean never, ours to begin with. They have always belonged to the enemies of the Lord Jesus Christ, right from day one!

Oh, I know lots of you don’t want to hear that. Your dear old Aunt Bessie taught in them for years and she never found any problem with them. Now I am not attacking Aunt Bessie’s sincerity but I do question her discernment and the discernment of those Christians who think like she does. And believe me, I have known lots of them. When my wife and I decided to homeschool our children, lo these many years ago now, we got more opposition from the Christians than we did from the world. Those Christians wanted us to put our kids in the local public school and they were quite disappointed when we refused to do that.

Their discernment in this critical area had been tampered with and they unknowingly came down on the side of the Lord’s enemies. After spending two years in Kanawha County, West Virginia during the textbook protest there in the mid-1970s I became convinced that the public school system does not exist to educate. It exists to indoctrinate our children in leftist values. I have never had cause to change my mind on this issue. In fact what I see going on in public schools today more and more bears out my original contentions.

I just read an article on https://www.thegatewaypundit.com for July 9th by Julian Conradson which stated, in part: “Investigative journalist and Critical Race Theory opponent Chris Rufo has identified over 30 school districts across 15 different states that are teaching the radical anti-whiteness book Not My Idea by Anastasis Higgenbotham….The book teaches children to primarily identify by their skin color while it paints white children as evil, saying: “Whiteness is a bad deal. It always was…Another page says “Racism is a white person’s problem and we are all caught up in it.” This is an absolute croc. Whatever “racism” exists in this world is a human problem not just a white problem and to teach kids this stuff is to lie to them and do them a grave injustice .Christopher Rufo notes that this book is meant for youngsters as young as kindergarten and it “traffics in the noxious principles of race essentialism, collective guilt, and anti-whiteness.’ Rufo has noted that “Critical race theory is driving public education–and must be stopped.”

But it won’t be stopped and the only solution to not having your kids poisoned by it is to get them out of public schools. Some are learning the lesson and are doing that, but not enough. A good example is California. An article on https://www.zerohedge.com for July 9th noted that: “The most recent homeschool figures are more than twice as high as they were during the 2018-2019 school year, when 14,548 PSAs (private school affidavits) were filed. There were 22, PSAs filed during the 2019-2020 school year. The largest increase in homeschoolers was especially notable among minority groups, including black and Hispanic learners. In African American households the proportion of homeschooling quintupled from 3/3 percent in spring 2020 to 16.1 percent in fall 2020.” By the same token, the percentage of Hispanic families that opted for homeschooling rose from 6.2 percent to 12.1 percent. And this is in just one state, a state not especially friendly to homeschooling. But this tells you something. More minority folks are getting the message that the public school system ain’t really their friend–and that’s important. Now if only the white folks who are continually slandered by that system would begin to get that message! One can only hope the Lord will begin to open their eyes–if they still have eyes to see.

Critical Race Theory Is The New Holy Writ For Public Schools

by Al Benson Jr.

For you Christian (and also other) parents who still think your local public school is still okay for your kids I have to further burst your bubble in the hope of waking at least some of you all up.

I will quote from an article on https://www.thegatewaypundit.com for July 5, 2021. The headline for this article states More than 5,000 Woke Teachers Sign Pledge to Teach CRT ‘Regardless of the Law’. The article says, in part “Throughout much of 2021, conservatives, in both classrooms and in the halls of state legislatures have been fighting back against the pervasive influence of critical race theory in public schools. Laws banning the instruction of CRT tenets in public schools have passed in more than 20 states, and there is reason to hope that the tide is beginning to turn in the fight for the country’s history and principles.” I wish I could agree with the latter part of his statement, but I am unable to.

He then notes the Zinn Education Project “that refuses to accept defeat, and desires to teach American children that this country was founded upon the ‘disposition of Native Americans, slavery, structural racism and oppression.” He also observes that “The organization is named for Howard Zinn, a socialist activist and ‘historian’ who wrote A Peoples History of the United States’ a left-wing propaganda pamphlet disguised as a textb0ok that has made its way into history classes all across the country.” So whatever else comes down the pike, you have to realize that Zinn’s book is already here and in use.

The article continues “Now the ZPE is circulating a ‘Pledge to Teach the Truth’ which identifies left-wing methods of analysis like critical race theory as ‘the truth’ and decrees that the signees–all of whom are educators–refuse to be ‘bullied” into compliance with the law.” In other words, these “teachers” who are really nothing more than change agents, are going to teach what they darn well please–no matter what their state laws say. We are told that, so far, there are more than 5,000 teachers in all 50 states that have signed on to do this. And I would be willing to bet that the vast majority of them teach in public schools. So, if you think your kids are “safe” from leftist propaganda tactics in public school because your state has a law against them on the books let me tell you that this is probably not the case–unless your state legislators show some guts on this issue. Even then the outcome is questionable.

Why are the kids not safe with a law on the books that prevents teaching critical race theory you ask. I will quote the headline from another Gateway Pundit article, this one for Independence Day, July 4th. How ironic! This one says Nation’s Largest Teachers Union Approves Plan to Promote Hate-Based Critical Race Theory in All 50 States and 14000 School Districts. The teachers union the article is talking about is The National Education Association, which most public school teachers belong to. Not all, but most. The NEA calls critical race theory “reasonable and appropriate.” They’ve got to be kidding, right? Well, actually, they are not. For a leftist teachers union, critical race theory is very appropriate as it helps to spread the leftist agenda in public school classrooms nationwide.

This is the kind of thing naive parents do not comprehend when they go to school board meetings. A school board meeting in Loudon County, Virginia was recently shut down when parents had the gall to complain about some of the crap their kids were being taught in public schools there. The parents didn’t like what was going on and the school board did not want to hear their legitimate complaints so they shut the meeting down. What this means is that the school board in Loudon Country will do what it damn well pleases and the parents will have no say!

This sort of thing is going on all across the country and still parents continue to funnel their children in to these public brain laundries we are still foolish enough to refer to as “schools.” I am not indicting all public school teachers here. There are still some good ones, but they are part of a shrinking minority–not representative of the public school’s real mission–propagandizing the students with an extreme left-wing bias.

Parents, especially Christian parents need to wake up to this fact and start removing their kids from these schools. I have noted statistics from several states showing public school enrollment is dropping–but not enough! More parents need to begin to get the message, to wake up and smell the coffee. The children they save may well be their own–but they need to get those kids out of the public schools asap.

Independence Day–Are We Really Free?

by Al Benson Jr.

Member Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

The title to this article is a rhetorical question. Anyone with a brain already knows the answer and doesn’t need me to tell him. Heck, no, this country is not a free country. In fact it has not been free since the Lincoln administration. We have had the illusion of freedom, with just enough “house privileges” from our federal master to keep us pacified while he reached for total control over our lives. With Harris/Biden in the White (Red) House he now feels that goal is within his grasp and he is getting impatient to grasp it in his hot little socialist hand.

A conservative commentator recently said that the New World Order has successfully taken control of the federal government. When you look at what is now going on it is hard to argue too much with his assessment.

Just about every person Harris/Biden has picked for any official position is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, which means that, in reality, the CFR is running the country, not Biden. Biden is nothing more than their vehicle through which they take total control, if he is even cognizant of what is going on. Biden was their transmission belt to power and when he has accomplished all he can to install them, they will simply disconnect him and put him out to pasture, where he should have been in the first place.

Donald Trump was a major speed bump in the New World Order’s agenda to reduce the US to a banana republic. So everything Trump did had to be undone as quickly as possible. Stealing the election from him was a major first step and keeping him out of office has to be their logical next step. While Trump was not able to restore freedom to America, at least he tried. He is the only president in my lifetime that tried. But I think he underestimated the vice-grip the New World Order had on this country at least since the beginning of the 20th century.

So what about “freedom” in America? Ask the good folks in the South how “free” they are to celebrate their history and heritage. That history and heritage, indeed their very culture, has been under constant assault for at least three decades and probably longer. Their flags and monuments have been torn down, desecrated and vandalized to the point where many of them need a county sheriff to protect them if they go to a cemetery to commemorate the grave of one of their fallen heroes. So how “free” are they? The radical socialists and communists in this country want to destroy not only their history and culture, but them as well.

And these same communists and socialists want to destroy the ranching and farming culture of the far West. After all, who needs real beef when they can be forced to buy Bill Gates’ synthetic phony. It’s all about cultural genocide and Authentic American cultures comprised of people who dare to think for themselves must be destroyed because they are major impediments to the agenda of the New World Order. They will not willingly be slaves to that Order so they have to go!

You want to know who is really free in this country? How about Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and a whole host of other far left groups? They can burn, destroy, pillage and vandalize to their heart’s content and the prostitute press labels them as “peaceful protesters.” The police won’t dare to touch them and the cities they loot and burn have wicked politicians who label what they are doing as “reparations.” The far left can intimidate people with impunity and if those people dare to resist then they are arrested because as we all know, anyone resisting the far left is automatically a “domestic terrorist.”

So, in light of all this, please tell me how “free we are this Independence day!

Single Family Homes Are “Racist” Just Ask Joe Biden!

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

There was a time, even in my lifetime I can remember it, where the “American Dream” was for a family to own their own home, with a back yard big enough to entertain friends and maybe even plant a small garden there. But the current regime has determined that such activities, even the thoughts thereof, are inherently “racist” and what is even worse, they may contribute to that worst of all possible evils, “climate change.” Therefore, your single family “racist” home probably needs to be done away with and replaced by a multi-story apartment house and your neighborhood rezoned to accommodate that.

Does anyone reading this recognize that this might be happening in their area?

According to an article in the Washington Examiner https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/biden-squeezing-suburbs-existence for June 3rd this may end up happening at many local levels. The article notes: “…the Biden administration is pushing local governments to allow apartment buildings in neighborhoods that are restricted to single-family homes. The administration claims it’s a way to ease a national shortage and combat racial injustice in the housing market…Critics claim the federal government’s plan would change the landscape of towns and cities across the country and torpedo the American dream.” But you have to realize this radical rezoning scheme is not for everyone. The Examiner article observed that “Biden himself owns a four-acre lakefront home in upscale Greenville, Delaware, where there is absolutely no public housing , affordable housing or rentals that accept housing vouchers. And don’t expect any to be built next door to the Bidens.” So it is really a case of “rezoning for thee but not for me.” Is anyone surprised? This is so typical of the ruling elites. They are more than willing to alter our lifestyles whether we want them altered or not, but don’t you dare to mess with theirs or they may get the National Security Agency after you.

Another article on https://outragedpatriot.com/wow-joe-biden-attempting-to-destroy-suburbs-with noted that “Trump said during a 2020 campaign rally that Biden wants ‘to put low-cost housing in the suburbs, and that would mean abolishing, ruining the suburbs. It has already begun. It’s been going on for years.” So Trump was right again. No wonder they had to steal the election from him!

The article continued: “But Democrats are, indeed, planning to federalize local zoning laws within the infrastructure reconciliation package to displace single family homes with high-rise, low income apartments to impact the already purple suburbs. The reconciliation package plans to begin the destruction of the suburbs via a measure within the package called the HOMES Act, which intends to put the federal government in charge of local zoning laws to change local demographics, impacting the already purple voting districts.” And any local government that chooses not to play this federal game may see its HUD funding cut. So federal blackmail is the real name of the game. Destroy your suburban neighborhoods or your federal funding dries up!

I hope our elected representatives here in Louisiana have got the sense God gave a goose and will vote against this monstrosity. Who knows if they have even read the bill. Here we are, a few days before Independence Day having to protest a bill that will be responsible for helping to destroy the American Dream!

But, then, that is what this current Regime is really all about–the destruction of the American Dream and the abolition of our God-given liberties. And there are way too many home-grown leftists in this country, educated in our public schools, who are more than willing to help them do that.

Socialists And Humanists Control Public Schools


by Al Benson Jr.


Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

My most recent article on the Unitarians and socialists controlling public schools drew so much negative response in certain quarters that I felt like I struck a raw nerve. That convinced me that I had done something right. When the leftists respond with vehemence to something you wrote or said you can tell you hit a nerve

.
The public school system is one of those sacred cows you are never supposed to touch. The leftists always respond in defense of public schools when patriotic Americans point out egregious things that system does. I can imagine, somewhere down the road, some erstwhile leftist in Congress will introduce a bill to make criticism of public education a “hate crime” committed by “domestic terrorists” and then all the commentators on CNN will spend every night for a week pointing out the holiness of public education versus the “evil” of those who dare to question what it is doing to, not for, our kids.


Alex Newman’s recent article in The New American magazine for June 21, 2021 Government Schools vs. Christianity gives us lots of information on those that have in the past, and still do, control what is taught in public schools. The articles goes into the efforts of socialist John Dewey’s work in that area. Many of you have probably heard of John Dewey but you have no idea of what he really stood for or did. Alex Newman describes him as an anti-Christian Utopian and I think he was right on the money there.


He says of Dewey that “Dewey, who visited the Soviet Union and wrote glowing reports about the supposed wonders of communism, is today almost universally regarded as the founding father of America’s government school system. Aside from his political and economic views, his ‘religious’ views were at the center of his efforts. Backed by Rockefeller money, Dewey was an avid foe of Christianity. In fact, he was one of the authors and signers of one of the most brazen public attacks on the Bible of the early 20th century. Dubbed the Humanist Manifesto , it was a total assault on Scripture, starting with the very first words, ‘Religious humanists regard the universe as self-existing and not created.'”


Newman described humanism quire accurately when he said “Humanism is basically a retread of the satanic lie found in Genesis 3:5–‘For God know that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil,’ that man can be his own god.” So the humanists, many of whom are Unitarians and socialists, parade their anti-Christian bias in plain sight. But there are dire implications for Dewey’s worldview, for us and our children.


Newman has observed: “And yet, if children are indoctrinated to believe in Dewey’s humanist religion, there can be no God-given rights, because there is no God to grant any rights. There are also no objective and eternal moral standards.” Do you begin to see where this kind of education is taking our kids?


Charles Francis Potter, one of Dewey’s good humanist buddies wrote a book back in 1930 entitled Humanism: A New Religion. It wasn’t, but Potter thought it was. And he raised a very good point, especially for Christians. He said: “What can a theistic Sunday school’s meeting for an hour once a week and teaching only a fraction of the children do to stem the tide of the five-day program of humanistic teaching?” I’ve asked that same question myself. I don’t like the answer. Yet most Christians seem satisfied to give the kids and hour of Sunday school once a week while sending them to public school to get 30-35 hours of humanist indoctrination–and then they wonder why they have problems with the kids! They can’t seem to figure out what the problem is. And quite possibly they can’t because they were “educated” in those same humanist public schools and were (mis)taught so they would be incapable of seeing the problem.


So many think if they just get in there they can reform the public schools. I know people who have tried that and have had to give it up as a bad job. That ain’t gonna happen folks. The public schools will not be reformed because they are doing exactly what they were created to do.


So don’t waste your time on parent teacher meetings and all the other trivia thrown in your way to distract you. Get your kids out of the public school system. Separate from it, secede from it, whatever terminology you want to use–get your kids out of it and keep them out of it! There are all kinds of Christian schools and home school programs out there. Do a little homework and find out what is available. There is a lot more available now than there used to be when my wife and I homeschooled. For your kids sake see what you can find.

Unitarian/Socialist Influence On Public Schools

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

The recent June 21st issue of The New American magazine is a special report on education in America. The people that publish The New American realize that the major problem we have with education in this country is the public school system. An informative article by Alex Newman in this issue is entitled Government Schools vs. Christianity. Among other things Alex Newman noted: Despite the myth of religious ‘neutrality’ and ‘secular’ schooling perpetrated by the government school establishment and its apologists, all education is fundamentally religious in nature. That is just as true in government schools across the United States as it is in Islamic madrassas of Pakistan. The only question is what what religion and what worldview is being taught.” This is a cogent truth that most people, Christians included, never seem to grasp.

Newman goes on to observe that “non-Christians and anti-Christians with communist leanings were primarily responsible for the government takeover of education in America beginning in the mid-1850s…The gradual replacement of Christianity in the public schools began early on in the history of government-run education. It started with Communist Utopian Robert Owen, the first serious advocate of a total government takeover of education in America. In Owen’s view, only government training of children in collectivism from a young age could produce people ready to dispense with private property and live for what he viewed as the greater good of the collective.

Owen’s collective colony in New Harmony, Indiana went belly-up after only a few years, as most of such socialist experiments did in the 1800s. And there were a lot of them here in the 1800s, from Brook Farm to Fruitlands to New Harmony to the Shaker towns in several states, although the Shakers lasted longer than some of the others.

After his dismal failure at New Harmony, Owen teamed up with Orestes Brownson to promote a “secret society modeled on the Carbonari, an early 19th century Italian secret revolutionary society to work toward that goal.” And Newman tells us that the object of this society was “…convincing the public to support a government takeover of education. The second was to get men elected to the legislatures who would help advance that mission. But there was an even more ambitious goal: setting up a national system of compulsory government schools that would exclude all religion.” Brownson said that “The great object was to get rid of Christianity.”

And Unitarian Horace Mann “wanted to get the Bible out of education under the guise of stopping ‘sectarianism’.” Mann was totally opposed to the Calvinist church schools in Massachusetts. Mann was totally opposed to Reformed theology–indeed he had apostatized from it and formed his own creedal statement of how he felt life should be lived and he wanted to foist that apostate world view on the children of Massachusetts.

All of this happened in the early to mid-1800s–not the 1900s! Our problems with public schools go way, way back to their beginnings. You are not going to reform them by going to parent-teacher meetings or running for the local school board or throwing more public money at the public schools under the fallacious guise of “quality education.”

The public school system will not be reformed because it is doing what it s founders intended it to do. Those who say public education has failed do not understand what this system was created to do. Actually, the public schools have been a howling success at what they were created to do–propagandize your children into accepting and embracing the socialist, anti-Christian worldview.

This should be apparent to anyone who engages in serious thought when you see what is being taught in public schools in our day. Our public schools are teaching concepts that Lenin and Mao would love and endorse. Why do you think that so many of our kids are so sold on communism and socialism? Because they are getting it taught to them in school, that’s why. Oh they don’t call it communism. They give it nobler-sounding names like Critical Race Theory and the 1619 Project and a host of others. But what it amounts to is socialist doctrine and propaganda. If you choose to use public schools your kids are being indoctrinated in this stuff.

The articles in this latest issue of the New American advocate that you remove your kids from public schools and work to defund them and I could not agree more. Every new bond issue for public schools that comes up should be voted down. And they would be if only parents started to grasp the agenda of these brain laundries in sufficient numbers.

This Chinese virus that kept so many kids out of school last year allowed parents to get a look at at least some of what was being taught in schools and lots of parents did not like what they saw. Enrollments in public schools are down this year in many states, even here in Louisiana. Home school enrollment is on the rise–and that is good. We need to continue this trend.

More parents need to begin to grasp what the public school system is really all about, particularly Christian parents. Their primary goal is robbing your children of their faith and turning them into good, compliant little collectivists. Despite the efforts of some good teachers, that is the objective of the public school system and those that promote it, and people need to start figuring that out.

When a Socialist Became the Secretary of the Interior

I have noted in recent articles the impact that socialists and communists had in the history of this country well before the twentieth century–going all the way back to the 1840s. Lots of historians–so called–will seldom, if ever, acknowledge this. Even less will they make mention of the basic socialist foundations of the “conservative” Republican Party. This is history we are not supposed to be taught. And mostly, we aren’t. We have to find this out for ourselves by doing the homework.

One thing that does aid us is that more and more, the socialists are not bashful in admitting their impact on our earlier history. Where the historians ignore it, the socialists brag about it. Donnie Kennedy and I, when we wrote our book Lincoln’s Marxists, the first edition of which was called Red Republicans and Lincoln’s Marxists found this to be true. Incidentally, the first edition of our book is still available.

I just recently came across an article entitled https://worldhistory.us/american-history/impact-of-the-forty-eightors-on-the-amer… that was quite frank in what it admitted. It was published in August of 2018. In part it noted: “For the German-American Forty-Eighters, the best political instrument to ply their revolutionary ideals was the new Republican Party…As a result, the German Forty-Eighters became a significant voting bloc in the Republican Party.

Another German Forty-Eighter, Carl Schurz, a farmer and abolitionist from Wisconsin, helped pave the way for Lincoln’s presidential victory…Schurz mobilized a large part of the German-American vote for Lincoln in the general election…Unfortunately, the German-American reputation as fighters suffered during the course of the war. Schurz, who was awarded with a command by Lincoln, led German-speaking units at the battles of Chancellorsville and Gettysburg. His soldiers retreated pell-mell in those battles.” Germans supplied around 750,000 of the Union’s 2.5 million soldiers. That was in the neighborhood of 30%. Not all of those were Forty-Eighters, but a fair number were.

The article opines that the War of Northern Aggression would have happened whether the Forty-Eighters were there or not but it says “…the outcome might have been a bit different.

As for Carl Schurz, his propensities for socialist activities continued and he ended up becoming the Secretary of the Interior in the Hays administration. Pretty lofty position for a German socialist to occupy in the federal government. In our book Lincoln’s Marxists we provided a bit of information about Schurz and his time in the Interior Department. It was not Schurz at his best.

But even more harm was done by his wife, Margarethe Meyer Schurz. It was she who introduced the idea of kindergartens into America. She was a disciple of Friedrich Frobel, the founder of the Kindergarten movement. It is worth noting that, when the socialist revolutionaries were driven out of Germany and legitimate government was restored, kindergarten were banned in that country. When I first started this blog back in November of 2011 I did an article dealing with the socialist origins of the kindergarten movement. Like so many other socialist agendas it came into existence in the 1800s, not the 1900s in this country. And our children are not the better off for it. Yet, along with the rest of the public school movement we seem to have embraced it.

Now, with Critical Race Theory and the 1619 Project, along with the whole transgender movement some are beginning to see what the public schools have been doing to their children and lots of them don’t like it. Let us hope they realize they need to get their kids out of those indoctrination centers we call public schools.

It should, by now, have begun to dawn on people that a lot of the problems we have in this country were introduced here by European socialists of one stripe or another. And when they arrived they found home-grown American socialists who were more than willing to aid them in the destruction of our God-given liberties. That’s what socialism is really all about.
