Culture Destroyers, Leftist Ignoramuses, Useful Idiots-all in high gear

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Some one sent me a copy  of an article from The Gateway Pundit website yesterday, August 17th, which I thought was poetic justice.  The article began by saying this: “Make no doubt about it–This is Marxist revolution in America today. Fed by media lies, radical community organizers and millions of dumb leftists.”

It turns out that a group of ignoramus Leftists in Chicago have torched a statue of Abraham Lincoln, even though he supposedly “freed the slaves” which he really didn’t. Now either these Leftists are totally ignorant–or, on the other hand, maybe a handful of them have read Donnie Kennedy’s and my book Lincoln’s Marxists which gives the lowdown on where Lincoln really was racially (if they can even read)–and if they graduated from Chicago public schools that’s a big “if.”

As I said, I found this an instance of poetic justice. Lincoln, the Marxist lover, has his statue torched by Chicago Marxists! That has got to be a hoot for people who know what the political game really is. Do I endorse their doing that to his statue? No. I am no Lincoln lover by any stretch of the imagination, but I don’t endorse vandalizing monuments and statues, even of people I don’t like. If we start doing that we are no better than our adversaries on the Left.

So the Social Justice Warriors (more Leftists) are definitely on a “remove the statues” kick. They sense cultural victory within their grasp this year and so they are going for broke. But I also noticed an article from Seattle yesterday about a really ugly statue of Lenin there (and I mean this this IS ugly)! However, for some reason the Social Justice Warrior crowd does not have this Lenin statue on their list of monuments that need to come down. They want Washington and Jefferson monuments to come down but they are okay with leaving Lenin up. Could it just possibly be that they agree with what Lenin did to Russia and they want the same thing for us here–Lenin being a beacon of light for them?

And then, back to New Orleans!  You all remember the big fuss there earlier this year over the Confederate statues that had to come down because a handful of Leftists, including the mayor’s black girlfriend, didn’t like them and the mayor decided to use that as a platform to advance his political career. Well, guess what? They are now back for round two and they have a whole bunch of other things they don’t like that now have to either come down or be changed. This is what you get when you try to appease the cultural Marxists–they never quit until your whole history and culture are gone and they own you.

According to an article by Kevin Litten: “Take Em Down NOLA has long said city leaders did not go far enough. They want the statue of Andrew Jackson in Jackson Square taken down, as well as the renaming of streets such as Jefferson Davis Parkway and Robert E. Lee Boulevard. Historian Kelly Porter, who said she was helping Take Em Down with research, said at the press conference that she had identified 13 additional statues and a number of schools, street names, and historical plaques linked to the Confederacy.  All told, more than 100 items could be targeted for removal or renaming, she said.” Did you all get that number–over 100 items changed or removed that are part of your history. Sounds like a thorough cultural purge will be underway in the Big Easy. Does that give you the warm fuzzies??? And do you think they will quit after New Orleans? If you do then you are naive beyond belief and live in la-la land!

I have a generational question for all these Social Justice types. What will they do when, somewhere down the road, others come along that don’t like what they have put up and go to changing it all over again with a whole new set of “heroes” and names?  It wouldn’t be the first time in history that happened. This sort of thing went on back in Egypt during the days of the Pharaohs. It went on during the French Revolution when the Illuminati types tried to remove any reference to God. Guess what? That didn’t work. God is still here–the revolutionaries are not–many of them having kept their appointments with the guillotine.

However, in this country, it is all an ongoing part of the “reconstruction” that started after the War of Northern Aggression. The reconstruction crowd has been trying to remove God and historic white Christian culture from this country, especially in the South, for 150 years now, and they show no sign of letting up. If anything, in recent years, they are ratcheting up their efforts, feeling their opposition is wearing down. Is it?  In 2015 I saw push-back to their efforts to get all Confederate flags taken down. This year I have not seen very much. It’s like most folks down here are just sitting it out, watching the Leftists do their thing–and when they’ve completely dismantled our history and heritage, we’ll sit back and wonder what happened.

Now I don’t endorse anything like this debacle in Charlottesville. That almost seems like a set-up the more you read about it. But it seems to me that we have to find some legitimate way to defend our history and culture while we still have it. Otherwise, we will simply be deprive of it by our doing nothing. Any suggestions?

Segregation Was Not Southern Racism–It Was Federal Policy

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

I have just received an informative little book that deals with a lot of material folks will never see in their “history” books, but need to be aware of, especially here in the South. This book was written by John Chodes of New York City and published by Shotwell Publishing  http://www.ShotwellPublishing.com in Columbia, South Carolina.

The title of the book is Segregation Federal Policy or Racism? And Mr. Chodes explains why it was federal policy instead of Southern racism. He starts out by dealing with a subject I have written about on and off for years, but which most people simply fail to grasp–that “reconstruction” did not end in the South after the Yankee/Marxist troops departed–it just continued under other names and it continues right down to our day. The current riots in Charlottesville, Virginia are a prime example of how “reconstruction” continues to work in our day.

Chodes notes on page x of his introduction that: “Northerners attempted to recast every opinion opposed to the North’s myths, to impose Northern ways upon the Southern people, to…write error across the pages of Southern history which were out of keeping with the Northern legend…” Here he quoted Frank L. Owsley, who had noted all this decades ago. And referring to this, Chodes stated: “This new history erased the fact that segregation is not the result of Southern racism. It is the result of federal policy from 1865 to 1900 to divide the white and black races and to promote discord and hatred for political advantage.” In this vein, he begins to conclude his book with this statement: “Uncle Sam has come full circle. He created segregation by fraud, force, and violence, then blamed Southerners for those deeds. Now he employs busing, gerrymandering of election districts, the police, the national guard, the courts, confiscation, and the threat of incarceration to achieve a coercive, integrated, egalitarian society through an arbitrary  ratio of blacks to whites. This is totally in keeping with the utopian dream of the Radical Republican carpetbaggers and congressmen.” And in between these two points he says an awful lot in a short 73 pages that it will take a couple of articles for me to even hit all the high points.

Mr. Chodes notes how the antebellum society of the South before the War of Northern Aggression was an integrated society, especially on the plantations, but other places as well. For Southern society to function back then there had to be a fair amount of integration because there was a mutual dependence of both races on the other. After the Confederacy was defeated (but never officially surrendered) all of this changed. “Reconstruction” changed all this “…by the bayonet, into mutual suspicion and loathing, separation and violence. A great mental and physical chasm opened up between the races.” That was not by accident. He goes into the fact that, in the Johnson administration, segregation began under “congressional reconstruction.”  He wrote that: “In many respects, the Reconstruction-era policy of divide and conquer is still maintained today but in a subtler form.” Only with some of what is going on today with the planned destruction of Southern culture, it is getting much less subtle and much more overt.

Chodes notes the integrated makeup of Southern armies. He observes: “Contrary to politically correct history, the Confederacy used blacks, slave and free, as troops long before the North did. Slaves were integrated with white troops into Southern armies,” and although Mr. Chodes didn’t mention it, they got the same pay, when they got paid, as white troops did. In the Northern armies they got less.

The 14th and 15th Amendments come in for “honorable” mention by Chodes, where he notes that “Both these amendments drove a tremendous antagonistic  wedge between the races. They were not intended to create equality between blacks and whites, they were to put the bottom rail on top and perpetuate constant discord, violence, and political submission of the rebels to the freedmen. These Constitutional amendments were acts of revenge and their effects are still felt today.”

The Freedmen’s Bureau and the Union League are dealt with in some detail and he notes how the Freedmen’s Bureau “…represented the first unconstitutional foray by the federal government into education. The Freedmen’s bureau began the process of nationalizing Southern schools…It focused on educating blacks, which included propagandizing for Republicans and hating ‘traitors’ so that any hope of reconciliation with Southern whites was eradicated.” He noted that the Morrill Act, passed in Congress, was “segregating whites for re-education” and he ties all this in with the Department of Agriculture and shows how it has worked down through the decades. Do you begin now to get some idea of where all this is going? Connecting any dots?

This is not a fun book to read, but it is a necessary book to read if you want to begin to grasp all that has been done to (not for) us since the end of the War, all in the name of “progress.”

It is easy to see that the federal government already had a class struggle (Marxist) mindset and a plan in the works before the War was ended that they were going to foist upon the South first, and then the rest of the country afterward.

Please do yourself and your children a favor and read Mr. Chodes’ book to grasp what the cultural Marxists have done to us while we slept, especially here in the South.  And if you don’t grasp what cultural Marxism is, it is nothing more than a communist war on your culture, on you, and on your children. You should be able to understand that. It’s as plain as I can make it.

Mr. Chodes’ book sells for $7.95 and would be worth it at twice the price.

Hashtag: “Fire McM…..”

by Al Benson Jr.

I have been told that there is a new hashtag out there on Twitter (if they haven’t removed it already) that says “FireMcMaster” and that lots of folks are responding to this, which can’t make the managed media overly happy.

Last evening someone sent me an internet article about National Security Adviser H. R. McMaster briefing cultural Marxist George Soros on what’s going on in the White House with the possible takeover and removal of President Trump from office.

The original article was from infowars.com and while I realize lots of folks don’t like Info Wars for various reasons, I do have to say this– they have good sources and they get the information right. Along with several other sites, I have followed them regularly and usually, if they say something, you can take it to the bank–as long as you actually look at what they said and not at what someone else says they said.

I looked up the Info Wars article on the Internet and found pages and pages of where others had picked it up, one outfit from as far away as New Zealand.

The article was written by Kit Daniels on August 8th and I will quote a little of what he says.  He began with: “National Security Advisor H. R. McMaster is an active operative of globalist billionaire George Soros, according to three separate domestic and foreign intelligence sources…” And he quotes Roger Stone, who has been a political operative since the early 1960s. Stone says: “I have confirmed from sources from inside the White House, the Israeli government and Israeli intelligence that the Israelis have intercepted email communications from General McMaster to George Soros, informing him of everything that’s going on inside the White House…I have double checked this with two different sources very high up in Israeli intelligence, and I actually expect the Israeli ambassador to the US to confirm this.”

Stone noted that: “George Soros has penetrated the Trump White House. Soros has planted a mole infiltrating the National Security apparatus: a woman named Fiona Hill, who has a Harvard background, and has been on the Soros payroll of the Open Society Institute.” Ms. Hill is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

You might be tempted to wonder why the Zionists would have all that much trouble with McMaster. One reason might be an article on the New York Times website for February 24, 2017 which states: “H. R. McMaster breaks with administration on views of Islam.” In other words, McMaster takes a more Obamaesque view of Islam than  President Trump does. In fact, as I have said in previous articles, McMaster disagrees with Trump on just about everything–so why is he where he is? Who advised Trump to choose this turkey for such a high and important position? Inquiring minds sure would like to know. When it comes to picking people from some of these important posts, Trump, almost inevitably, seems to choose people that are guaranteed to give him a hassle over what he wants to do.  And with McMaster he has picked a real beaut–one that is now coming back to bite him unless he does something about it.

As the hashtag said “FireMcMaster.”

Update: Came across an article on http://www.wnd.com for August 11th by Leo Hohmann about the strange bedfellows that McMaster has. Mr. Hohmann noted: “If H. R. McMaster’s committment to President Trump’s conservative agenda is to be judged by those who defend him and want him to stay on as White House national security advisor, it’s not looking good for him.”

“In the past McMaster has been publicly defended by John McCain, R-Ariz, groups funded by George Soros and Media Matters. Now comes the latest endorsement, from the Islamist group CAIR, also known as the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which was shown in federal court to be a front group for Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood’s branch in the Holy Land.” These are some of Obama’s good buddies!

They are labeling those who want McMaster gone as “white supremacists.” Sound familiar? Now McMaster is as lily-white as many of the rest of us, yet those who want him gone are now “white supremacists.” The Swamp must be getting some heat about McMaster and his CFR connections or all these leftists would not be stepping up to the plate to tell us what scumbags we are for wanting him gone.

Coups And Questions

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Has anyone other than me noticed a subtle shift in the direction the Trump administration seems to be taking? I try to keep track of all this, from various websites to You Tube presentations,to news articles people send me, and in just the last few days, I have gotten the feeling on the back of my neck, where the hair stands up (what there is of it) that something is going on–and it ain’t good!

One source noted some signs of a possible coup, and one of those signs was a lack of information for the President from previous sources, which have been mostly good sources. Now it seems that his “new” sources of information all have to be “official” sources, which means that friends, and even some family, no longer seem to have access to him and information previously passed to him by friends now has to go through “official” channels, which will ultimately decide what the President sees–or if he sees it at all.

Trump has three generals in the White House. At least two of them have connections with Deep State organizations. So who advised him in choosing these guys? None of them are on the same page he is on, but yet they all have high level positions in his administration and he has been out there defending at least one of them against those who have taken the trouble to point this out. So what’s the deal?

Congress has just recently passed a bill on Russian sanctions, which don’t help our situation regarding World War 3 to any great extent. Supposedly the bill was on Trump’s desk by July 29th. I even read some articles that said that Congress passed this to tie Trump’s hands in dealing with Russia. Makes you wonder which side Congress is really on–well, not quite–seeing that leadership positions are held by Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell, whose wife is also in Trump’s cabinet and is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out which side Congress is on–and it ain’t ours!

If Trump signs this bill–does it indicate that he has seen the handwriting on the Deep State wall and is ready to throw in the towel. Or does it indicate that his decisions are already being made for him and no one else realizes it yet? Has decision making on important issues been taken away from Trump? I realize there are lots of questions here but I want folks to start thinking about this stuff.

If the Deep State is making the major decisions already, will they, in the long run, even be able to leave Trump alive? He represents what many Americans want–a desperately needed change in the direction this country has gone in for decades. Ultimately, the Deep State not only hates Trump, but all of us “deplorables” that voted for him too. Should some “accident” befall him, would that be a Deep State lesson to patriotic Americans to just “shut up and sit down?”—or Deep State Daddy will be coming for you?

Michael Savage has said that if the Deep State takes out Trump there will be a civil war in this country. Ordinary folks will rise up and fight back. One can hope and pray that Michael Savage is right. Based on what I have seen over the years, all I can say is that, on this and several other questions “I’m from Missouri–you gotta Show Me!”

It seems we are entering a time when Christians are really going to need to be able to discern good from evil. Or as Matthew said in Matthew 7:15, “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” Some of them may come in military uniforms with lots of medals on them, and some may come in expensive suits worn by congressmen, but the “ravening wolf” part still applies–maybe even more so.

When Trump got elected I felt the Lord was giving us one more chance to repent and start to turn around. I’m not sure we’ve done an awful lot of that. Judging from some of the response I’ve seen, lots of folks, when Trump got elected, just said: “Well, we’ve got another Republican in the White House now so we can all just take it easy and go back to sleep for another four years.” That was hardly the response that is needed.

If the Deep State succeeds in taking out Trump, unless there is great revival, you will not have another chance at decent government in this country, not only in our lifetimes, but in the lifetimes of our great grandchildren. Most people do not realize what is at stake here. Most Christians do not realize.

Puppets Pulling Strings For Other Puppets

by Al Benson Jr.

Just this evening someone informed me about a new website that deals with H. R. McMaster, the CFR operative that seems to be trying to push Trump in certain directions that are not good for his agenda or for the country as a whole.

The site is http://www.mcmasterleaks.com  and on the first page of the site is an interesting cartoon. It shows H. R. McMaster and General David Petraeus, both at the end of puppet strings held by George Soros, who, in turn, is at the end of puppet strings being held by the Saudis. My next question is: who controls the puppet strings that hold the Saudis in place–because you know, if you are realistic that the Saudis are not the end of the road in all this. They are just one part of the machinery being used to tear down Donald Trump’s “America First” agenda. Do they get their orders from New York? London? Tel Aviv? or where?

The http://www.mcmasterleaks.com site lists several things McMaster has been involved in and gives you links to check out

There is some interesting commentary on this site that has links you can check out. For instance: “H. R. McMaster recently hired two of Ben Rhodes closest allies at NSC. Ben Rhodes is under investigation as part of the Susan Rice spying scandal.”

Then there is: “McMaster refuses to get rid of Obama holdovers who spied on Trump. Derek Harvey was the key figure when it came to the Middle East. He was against the Iran Deal and the funding of Palestinian Authority terror. He called out Islamic Jihad. He tried to force out the Obama holdovers running our foreign policy. And new he’s gone.”

“McMaster fired Rich Higgins for writing a memo criticizing  Islamic terrorism. Through the campaign candidate Trump tapped into a deep vein of concern among many citizens that America is at risk and slipping away. Globalists and Islamists recognize that for their vision to succeed, America, both as an ideal and as a national and political identity, must be destroyed…Islamists ally with cultural Marxists because, as far back as the 1980s, they properly assessed that the left has a strong chance of reducing Western civilization to its benefit.”

I stated in the article previous to this one Trump’s Main Enemies In His Own Administration  that several of the programs that Mr. Trump was pushing for his America First agenda were things McMaster was fundamentally opposed to, like getting out of Afghanistan and getting out of Syria. McMaster wants us to increase our involvement in these places. We’ve been in Afghanistan for 16 years now and what have we accomplished? Yet all these politicians and political generals from Bush and Obama on down have wanted us to continue there and have promoted “troop surges” which just puts more American boys in harm’s way. It seems that these people have wanted this country involved in perpetual wars–supposedly for “perpetual” peace–which somehow, never quite seems to arrive, at least not without more “troop surges.”

And, again, let us not forget H. L. McMaster’s  Council on Foreign Relations association. The CFR has always been a major part of every administration as long as I have been alive, be it Republican or Democrat, which means that there really isn’t much difference between the two. The CFR seems to be working mightily to insert its people into Trump’s administration–something I am not sure he really grasps the implications of.

At any rate, check out this new site http://www.mcmasterleaks.com and keep track of what gets posted there. You can bet the farm that the material put up there will hardly, if ever, be mentioned in your Evening Fishwrapper or on the Communist News Network.

 

Trump’s Main Enemies In His Own Administration

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

You might almost say that this is what Pogo was talking about years ago when he said “we have met the enemy and he is us.”

We all know President Trump has a ton of enemies on the political and theological Left, among Democrats, “progressives” and other slithery denizens of the “vast Left-Wing political Swamp.” These people all heartily wish Mr. Trump, his family, and his agenda extreme ill. And they are working toward that end. That’s a given.

What is not so apparent to many is the fact that these people represent only  one portion of Trump’s opposition. They are the most vile and vulgar part, but they are not the most dangerous and insidious part. The most dangerous and insidious part of his opposition hides in plain sight–as part of his administration. These are the people that are supposed to be helping him promote his America First agenda, and a handful are, but many beyond that handful are diligently working at helping him to fail in his effort, and what’s more, some of the more deluded among them may even think they are doing the country a service by aiding in his downfall. But others among them are not deluded–and they are the ones he has got to learn to beware of. Ironically, some of these are people he has chosen himself, and you have to wonder who advised him in some of these choices.

Mr Trump truly respects the military and in a sense, he has surrounded himself with generals–Flynn, Mattis, McMaster, and others. I think here that Mr. Trump has made a grave error in his thinking. Just because someone happens to be or have been a general in the military doesn’t automatically mean he is your friend. There are such things as political generals.

I have recently seen commentary on the Internet about a movie from back in 1964–Seven Days In May,  starring Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas, both dedicated Leftists in their day. Anyone remember that one?  Remember what it was about–a military coup to overthrow the president. In the movie it failed, but not by much. And there are actually people here who naively believe that “it just couldn’t happen here in America.” Well, dream on folks, because it may well, even now, be in the process of happening, and sleeping Americans won’t realize it until they wake up some fine morning not too far down the road and the prostitute press happily informs them that this occurred “while you slept.” Which will probably end up being true in more ways than one.

The question might well be asked–why are some generals in the Trump administration aiding and abetting those on the Far Left to engage in their attacks on the Trump administration?  One answer is because the generals and those on the Far Left have the same bosses.

Let me cite a classic example here, taken from an article in the Washington Examiner for August 3, 2017. The article was authored by Melissa Quinn and entitled: H. R. McMaster told Susan Rice she can keep her security clearance.

According to Quinn’s article: “National Security adviser H. R. McMaster told former national security adviser Susan Rice that she could continue to have access to classified information and that he would waive a ‘need-to-know’ requirement when it comes to accessing classified information contained in documents she saw or received during her time as national security adviser, according to a report. The letter was sent from McMaster to Rice’s home in April, according to Circa and the president didn’t know about either the letter or McMaster’s  decision to allow Rice to keep her Top Secret/Sensitive Compartmented Information clearance.”  So here we have a woman, part of the Obama administration, about to be investigated by Congress because she was involved in unmasking people on Trump’s team during the last election, and McMaster has given her permission to keep her top secret security clearance. Why is this? It seems that several people from the Obama administration have gotten to keep their top secret security clearances when the Trump administration came in–one of them being Hillary. This enables them to get in and poke around in who knows what that they should no longer be given access to. Again, why is this??? I’d sure like to know and I am sure lots of other folks would to.

Then there was the article on http://dailycaller.com for August 3rd which said: “National Security adviser H. R. McMaster is thwarting President Donald Trump’s foreign policy prescriptions…Everything the President wants to do, McMaster opposes. Trump wants to get out of Afghanistan–McMaster wants to go in. Trump wants to get out of Syria–McMaster wants to go in. Trump wants to deal with the China issue–McMaster doesn’t…” There’s more, but you get the idea. One official stated: “I know the president isn’t a big fan of what McMaster’s doing the former official declared. I don’t understand why he is allowing a guy who is subverting his foreign policy at every turn to remain in place.”  That’s a very good question–why indeed? Is there some situation there whereby Trump is unable to do anything about this? If so, then Trump has already lost the presidency but no one realizes it yet.

McMaster is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations so you have to know he will kowtow to the One World Government cabal and their agenda. But why is Trump leaving him in place to do this. Is he so enamored of military generals that he can’t see that McMaster is deep-sixing him on every possible front? Or is there something else going on that prevents him?

And then there was the article on Zero Hedge for April 13, 2017, by William Craddick, taken from a site called Disobedient Media, in which the headline stated: “H. R. McMaster’s Ties To Soros-Supported Think Tank Raise Questions.” Disobedient Media sounds like an interesting site.

All in all, at this point, it seems that Mr. Trump is appointing people to high positions that have vested interests in seeing that he fails miserably, and because of that the American people fail. Up to this point I have supported Trump and applauded much of what he did, but if he continues to appoint people that have his demise as a main part of their agenda, then I begin to start wondering what is going on and why. Appointing those who want to make sure America continues to head in the wrong direction, according to Comrade Obama’s wishes is hardly the way to “Make America Great Again.”

Update: WorldNetDaily.com  has also, just this evening weighed in on this issue. They claim McMaster should be fired because of “subversive insubordination” in purging Trump loyalists recently.

They noted that McMaster has reportedly “blocked an attempted purge of holdovers from the Obama administration within the National Security Council, while removing a half-dozen key Trump loyalists, three in the last three weeks.” However, McMaster doesn’t like the word “holdover.”  He says “there’s no such thing as a holdover” just loyal career staffers. What a crock that is!

It seems that Trump has been kept in the dark about much of the purging, but the word seems to be “leaking out” (no puns intended) and supposedly Trump has thought about replacing McMaster with CIA Director Mike Pompeo. He needs to look somewhere else. Doing that is little more than replacing the devil with one of his disciples.

Is Black Privilege At Colleges On The Way Out?

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

How many of you have been treated to stories and “news” commentaries about “white privilege” until it is literally coming out the kazoo? I have heard and read about it until I am thoroughly sick and tired of it–and most of the black people that try to chastise me with their pontifications about my “white privilege” seem to drive newer cars than we do and many have college educations, which I could not afford. I have often asked the question–just who ended up with all the “privilege?” But, of course, that is the forbidden question and you are automatically “racist” for even thinking it. It is, after all, “thoughtcrime.”  Says who???

It reminds me of the German socialist Donnie Kennedy and I wrote about in Lincoln’s Marxists, who, after the War of Northern Aggression was over, lectured Confederate General Richard Taylor about how to be a “real American.” Naturally his definition of a “real American” (socialist) was somewhat different than ours was.

And so it is with this “white privilege” charade. Many of the black “liberals” (socialists) that I have run across seem to have accrued lots more “privilege” than most white folks I know. It reminded me of when we first came to North Louisiana. I had a hard time finding work at first and one day my wife went to the nearest city and inquired about how you went about getting food stamps on a temporary basis if you were out of work. The lady she talked to was black, but not unfriendly, and she explained to my wife that, in this particular area, if you were not black, you could just about forget about any help. The help was for the black folks, not for the rest of us. So I concluded from that episode, which happened several years ago now, that part of our “white privilege” here was the privilege of being refused help that folks with darker skins got automatically. So please, don’t talk to me about “white privilege” because it’s all a pile of bovine fertilizer and most folks know it even if they don’t dare say it!

Along those lines, I read a New York Times article by a Charlie Savage for August 1, 2017 about the Trump administration preparing to “…redirect sources of the Justice Department’s civil rights division toward investigating and suing universities over affirmative action admissions policies deemed to discriminate against white applicants…The document, an internal announcement of the civil rights division, seeks current lawyers interested in working for a new project on ‘investigations and possible litigation related to intentional race-based discrimination in college and university admissions’.”  Question: if this document was an internal memo, where did the New York Times get a copy of it? Another “leak?”

It seems that this investigation may be run from the division’s front office, rather than the Justice Department’s Educational Opportunities Section. That fact may indicate a serious investigation. Time will tell, so stay tuned.

The Times article noted that Roger Clegg,  who was a former official in the civil rights division under Reagan, and then under Bush, and who is now president of the Center for Equal Opportunity, has said that this new project is a “welcome” and “long overdue” development. Clegg said: “The civil rights laws were deliberately written to protect everyone from discrimination, and it is frequently the case that not only are whites discriminated against now, but frequently Asian-Americans as well.” It’s a good statement, but I’d disagree with him on one point. The civil rights laws were not written to protect everyone–they were written, originally, to encourage exactly what they do now–promote blacks over whites in a typical class struggle scenario–just like “reconstruction” after the War.

Lets be realistic–whites are discriminated  against, in spite of all the Leftist howling we hear from the Swamp to the contrary. I know of one company, right here in Louisiana that had a job opening a few years back. Folks from all races signed up to take the testing program for this job. I was told that the whites who took the test got higher scores than did most of the others–and when that fact became obvious to the test administrators, what they did was simply to pitch all the test results and start over with an entire new group of possible candidates, one that was more “racially inclusive” (meaning a black majority) and they went from there. So, in that particular case, having “white privilege” meant you got to be excluded from trying out for this job if you scored too high on the test. That seems to be how most of these programs work out.

So, if the Justice Department actually gets to where they can do something about this situation at the university level, then I am all for it. Naturally, the Leftists among us (and there are too many) will scream and moan because one of their pet entitlements may end up being removed (the ability to get in whether you qualify or not).  But that one has been around way too long anyway. I have seen it in operation since the 1960s, before I even had a clue as to what it was all about. I’d like to see someone finally begin to deal with it, despite all the ranting about “racism” from those on the Left, who, if the truth be known, are the real racists.
