The Worm Turns

by Al Benson Jr.

For almost a year now we have been hearing wild tales about President Trump’s supposed “collusion” with the Russians and Putin. Of course no credible evidence for this has showed up, but, hey, that makes no difference. Robert Mueller will continue to probe this until the cows come home, hoping to dig up some Trump acquaintance from twenty years ago that may have had supper in a Russian restaurant someplace, and this is the sort of drivel he is finding to prove Trump’s “collusion” with Putin.

At the risk of sounding negative, all this stuff Mueller claims he is doing is nothing more than a giant distraction–thrown out there to redirect people’s thoughts away from the real Russian collusion that has gone on between the Clintons and Putin as far back as 2009. You say you haven’t seen anything about that in the prostitute press? Well, surprise, surprise! The prostitute press is living up to its name by “forgetting” to mention any of this to the public, but enough has come out by now that they were forced to give it about three minutes this past week on the mainstream “news.” But don’t look for much more because they will tell you as little as they can get away with as they continue to parrot tales of Trump’s “Russian collusion delusion.”

I came across an interesting article on http://www.conservativeinstitute.org for October 18th which stated: “The real evidence of Russian collusion was uncovered by the FBI during the early days of the Obama administration but was not made public until this week. The FBI uncovered significant evidence  indicating that Russian officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering in the days leading up to the controversial transfer of control of more than one-fifth  of the U S supply of uranium. They held onto that evidence for more than four years, leaving Americans in the dark about the scandal and its ramifications for both the Obama administration and the Clinton family. The director of the FBI during the time of this coverup? You might recognize his name: Robert Mueller.”

There was an article on http://thehill.com  indicating that the Clinton Foundation was right in the middle of this “plot.” Seems the feds had an informant working inside the Russian nuclear industry and he found lots of this stuff out which, the Obama administration, in its rush to be the “most transparent administration in history” seems to have forgotten to mention. The Hill article (and I am surprised that this is the source) noted that: “They also obtained an eyewitness account–backed by documents–indicating Russian nuclear officials  had routed millions of dollars  to the US designed to benefit former President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow, sources told The Hill.” There’s quite a bit more, but you get the idea. Seems like just a bit of a conflict of interest here, don’t you think?

Anyone who has followed the Clintons over the years realizes that this is classic Clinton behavior. They always have their fingers stuck in the honey jar, or the cookie jar, or whatever they can reach.

If this were you and I we would have been tossed into the calaboose so quickly it would have made your head spin and the key would have been deposited in the Gulf of Mexico (maybe along with some bodies). But because this is the Clintons, and they have been getting away with murder for so long, I am afraid they will walk this time too. There are just too many Obama and Hillary lovers ensconced in the Trump administration for anything meaningful to be done.

They tell us we are a “government of laws and not men.” Sounds nice, but nowadays it is a fable–about on a par with Jack and the beanstalk or the three bears. What should be and what will be ain’t the same animal.

I have been watching government shaft the public for over 40 years now. Why should this time be any different? I realize Trump is in office, but let’s face it, he’s just about by himself up there and the Deep State folks can do so much he can’t even keep track of all of it–and they’ve got him busy 24/7 just trying to stay afloat. One man can’t do it all and he’s not getting much help.

I had hoped Jeff Sessions would have his back once he got into office, but Sessions seems to be sitting more of it out and only doing something when he is absolutely forced to. Charles Grassley has finally gotten into some of this and started asking questions and that’s good. He needs to keep doing that and to start subpoenaing people to testify to his committee. Once he starts doing that you can get the alternative media to report on it because you are won’t get anything from the prostitute press. They’re much more interested in investigating what they wish Trump had done. They have no interest whatever in dealing with what the Clintons and Obama have done.

Anyone who can’t see that the Trump administration has been constantly under siege since it took over just isn’t paying attention. This should prove that, whatever faults he may have, Mr. Trump is not “one of the boys” and so they have to try to neutralize him–any way they can. Awhile back an evangelical pastor exhorted his people to start praying daily for Mr. Trump. I think that would be a great idea for Christians in general, all over the country.

“Confederaphobia–An American Epidemic”

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Anyone following my blogs knows this is a subject I have given considerable attention to over the years. I am glad someone has now written a book about this which goes into more detail than I can on my blog spots, and now concerned folks can begin to study this mental aberration in some detail.

Paul C. Graham has written a book, the title of which is the title I quoted for this article. It was only published this year by Shotwell Publishing  in Columbia, South Carolina. This is the publisher that is turning out many books that give you the knowledge to fight political correctness (cultural Marxism) with the truth. So few publishers today have the intestinal fortitude (guts) to publish books that deal with this form of cultural genocide that it is truly refreshing to find someone willing to take those people (cultural Marxists) on and print the truth about them–truth that will ultimately “make us free.”

Mr. Graham’s book is not a lengthy one, only 58 pages with three appendixes. The serious reader can get through it in a day, and it’s not written in high-flown language. It is for us ordinary folks, and, in most cases, we are the ones that need it. Mr. Graham deals  with this subject in some detail (he packs a lot in 58 pages) and he helps us to understand the mindset of those who hate all things Southern and Confederate.

He notes how the present round of this aberration began in June, 2015,  when that “useful idiot” Dylan Roof shot those black folks in their church in Charleston, South Carolina. It was almost as if this event was a (the) signal to the Governor of South Carolina, Nimrata Haley (she is of East Indian descent) to pull the Confederate flag down at the capitol. Mr. Graham notes: “Haley and her accomplices foolishly viewed their actions as a great victory against hatred and intolerance. They were not alone. It appears that some kind of miracle was expected to sweep the land once the flag in South Carolina was removed. There is now, ironically, (and sadly, quite predictably), more hate and more violence than there was before, only now it is unabashedly directed toward native Southerners, their ancestors, and anything associated with them.” After reflecting upon this situation for the past couple years, I have to conclude that this was the intention!  Mr. Graham continues: “In less than a week, the issue surrounding the Confederate Battle Flag displayed in Columbia went from a state and local issue to a national issue to an international issue.” Again–that was the intention!  The cultural Marxists and those who finance them used this event as a new springboard to wage war on the faith, culture and heritage of the South. Until this day they have never ceased.

Starting on page 15, Mr. Graham explains the phenomena of “Confederaphobia.” He states that it is “…characterized by an irrational and pathological hatred and fear of all things Confederate–flags, monuments, graves, portraits, trinkets, stickers, etc.–anything that could be associated, even tenuously, with the late Confederate States of America, including the region from which it sprang and those people and groups of people who are native or sympathetic to this region.” In other words, these Leftist wing-nuts hate us and our ancestors and everything they or we ever stood for. Mr. Graham continues: “Regardless of the shape it assumes, Confederaphobia has the characteristic of dehumanizing self-identified Southerners and seeks to deny them their humanity, their dignity and their right to exist as they are–both individually and collectively–in the public sphere.” This aggressive attitude ends up scaring many Southern folks into “hiding in the shadows” and talking softly for fear of being identified as Southerners. After all, it’s not politically correct to stand up for something that so many seem to hate and loathe, and so,  for fear of drawing attention to themselves, many Southern folks just shut up and try to stay out of the public eye (and the line of fire). This is exactly what they are being conditioned to do–shut up and just sit down! That way only one side of the debate gets heard and Southerners, in effect, give the cultural battlefield over to those sworn enemies who plan to destroy them.

He observes, correctly, that “…being Southern or sympathetic to Southern history, heritage and culture–including that of the Confederate era and symbols associated with it–is not  wrong.” He talks about people being moved by the sight of a Confederate flag or the playing of “Dixie” or revering Confederate ancestors, and he states that these things are not wrong.  I can identify with what he says. I am moved by the sight of a Confederate flag waving in the breeze or hearing “Dixie” played and I had a Confederate ancestor who lost most of one leg at Spotsylvania, so when you go out of your way to tell me what an evil cause he fought for, I take that personally. You are slapping me and my ancestor in the face and I don’t much appreciate that–and lots of others in my position don’t appreciate it either.

Mr. Graham notes that most Confederaphobes are really guilty of the same attitudes they seek to project onto Southerners. This is standard cultural Marxist procedure–condemn others for what you, yourself are guilty of. He says (and I agree with him) that “Hatred and fear, coupled with a superiority complex and institutional approval fuels the expression of the more odious forms of Confederaphobia.  In its more extreme expression Confederaphobia can lead to violence and/or murder.” He notes the part that social media plays in all this. He talks about something that many of us have noted recently–contextualization–in regard to monuments and other Southern displays. Supposedly the contemporary cultural Marxist insists on “contextualizing” Confederate monuments and displays so they can be explained to gullible folks as to what they “really mean.” This is nothing more than cultural Marxist propaganda and Mr. Graham noted that it is nothing more than “an attempt to explain away the most obvious meaning of the display.”

He plainly sees the place “educational” institutions in this country, “especially colleges and universities, but increasingly in K-12 public schools–which are permeated with strong ideological biases, have strictly implied rules or policies against any outward expression of one’s Southern identity or views that fall outside of the accepted narratives of the South as racist, treasonous, and that the ‘Civil War’ was all about slavery.”

It’s not that the things the Confederaphobe hates are really bad, but rather that he has been conditioned to think they are by institutions of “education,” the “news” media, and the entertainment industry–all working hand in glove with one another, whether they realize it or not (and I think many of them do).

As stated so well by Mr. Graham, our flags and monuments remind us that “…we are a unique and recognizable people that have the right to exist, a right to be who and what we are without molestation, apology, or shame.” However, it appears, in our current cultural situation that we are going to have to start contending for that right because the cultural Marxists and their elite financiers plan to deprive us of that right if they can. You need to read Mr. Graham’s book. It will help you to understand much of what you see going on around you.

Multiple Shooters And A Cover-up In Vegas

by Al Benson Jr.

Member Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

You ignorant, racist, hate-filled “deplorables,” what has gone down in Vegas is supposed to show you what you get for not having the good sense to vote for Hillary in the last election. This is partial payback for your denying Hillary the office she was so plainly entitled to and would have had if you all hadn’t messed it all up for her by voting for that horrible Trump!  And to get back at you, Hillary, with the willing aid of Paul Ryan and the “usual suspects” in the Republican Party, will be coming for your guns–one new regulation at a time!

Trump may be pro-Second Amendment, but with all the battles he is being forced to fight on all fronts, from the Russian “collusion delusion” on down, his Second Amendment stand will be superfluous.  Las Vegas, at one level (there are other levels) is a sneak preview of what “those people” in Washington and other places would dearly love to do to you, and will, if given enough time.

Yesterday, October 4th, on Zero Hedge, there was an article by Michael Snyder from The Economic Collapse Blog. Mr. Snyder asked 16 questions about the Vegas shooting that the prostitute press aka the Mainstream Media would rather not see dealt with. I can’t go into all of them here, but some were really good so I will touch on them. I would urge you to check out The Economic Collapse Blog.

Question 2 of the 16:  Were their additional shooters? Yes, there were, it seems, more than one and there was also shooting at another hotel about a mile away, the Bellagio Hotel. So the shooters were not all at the Mandalay Bay. From what I heard, the shooting at the Bellagio was stopped rather quickly. It seems the security folks or whoever there were on the job and they squelched the shooting in about a minute and a half.

Question 5 of 16: How in the world did Paddock get 42 guns and several thousand rounds of ammunition into his hotel room, supposedly without anyone noticing? That’s one I asked myself, given the amount of video coverage that hotels and casinos usually have, especially in a place like Vegas. Almost makes you wonder, with all those guns, if he wasn’t carrying on some sort of gun running business. And who would all those guns have been for–Islamic terrorist groups possibly? It’s known that Paddock had a ton of Antifa stuff in his room. Even the Sheriff’s Department there has had to admit that.

Question 6 of 16: “How did someone with ‘no military background’ and that wasn’t a ‘gun guy at all’ operate such advanced weapons?” An article from Natural News made this point–“…these are not systems any Joe off the street can just pick up and use to effortlessly mow down 500 people. Running these systems requires extensive training, experience and stamina.” And the answer to that is that he didn’t do it all. He had help, and not all even in the hotel he was in.

Question 7 of 16:  Why was there a woman out in the audience at the music festival telling people they were going to die in 45 minutes? Actually it has been reported on InfoWars.com that there were both a man and a woman doing the same thing. What did they know? Obviously more than the audience!

Question 8 of 16: “Why did it take law enforcement authorities 72 minutes to get into Stephen Paddock’s hotel room?”

Question 15 of 16: “Why were nearly all the exits out of the concert venue completely blocked?”

And Question 16 of 16: Why was a country music festival chosen as the target?  Was the goal to kill as many Trump supporters and other conservatives as possible?…” That was part of it, that and to prepare the rubes in flyover country for another all out assault on their Second Amendment rights. They were supposed to feel “guilty” over being white and being gun owners and be made ready to, again, sit on “stools of everlasting repentance” just like the Establishment Radicals did to Southerners at the end of the War of Northern Aggression.

Gary North, as usual, asks a few penetrating questions about this that should be addressed. On GaryNorth.com for October 5th, he asks “Do the rounds that killed and wounded all those people match the weapons in the shooter’s motel room. Are there any rounds that do not match, indicating more than one shooter?” If some of these guns were to be passed along to someone else then he wouldn’t need to know how to use them all, would he? All he’d need to know how to use would be the few he might do some shooting with.

Several people have asked questions that I checked out today. Why didn’t alarms sound when the shooter(s) broke the hotel windows? Seeing those windows broken out should have given some indication as to where the shooter(s) were. And where have all the bullet casings from all that shooting gone? Has anyone picked them up to see what caliber the weapons are?

Another item from InfoWars. com was an article noting that Paddock had a guest in his room at least one day when he ordered breakfast. They had a picture of the receipt for breakfast for two, which listed “occupant and guest” on it. So who was the “guest?”  Lots of inquiring minds would really like to know. So why do I get the feeling that, unless these facts become so glaring that they can’t be swept under the rug, no one is going to deal with any of this?

It has been noted that heavy gambling is one way of “laundering” crooked money and getting it out into the system. Is that what Paddock was engaged in with all the gambling he was doing? Do any of these big hotels and casinos have Islamic or Leftist connections?

News broadcaster David Knight noted today on his newscast that we will now be getting “death by a thousand cuts” in regard to gun control. They will now start trying to dismantle the Second Amendment, one little regulation at a time until they have accomplished what Obama was trying to do while he was in office and couldn’t quite bring it off?  Hillary was then supposed to complete the job. How ironic now that, if this happens, it may be during a Republican administration. If Trump is going to stop this he will have to start vetoing any of this legislation that comes down the pike–and rest assured it will come!  Because if the truth were known, many so-called Republicans want it every bit as much as the socialist Democrats do. The only difference between most of these socialists is the party label. So there is a lot going on with Vegas and, as usual, the Leftists plan on getting two or three things done with one action.

Lots Of Questions About Las Vegas

by Al Benson Jr.

It seems as if there are more questions about the horrible terrorist attack in Las Vegas than there are answers. The Leftist politicians and media have again raised the howl for more gun control, as though that would have prevented this situation. It wouldn’t. Stop and do a little checking about some of the recent false flag events that have taken place in this country and see how many of the people that supposedly did the shooting (most of them dead now) obtained the weapons the supposedly used legally. The majority got them legally or someone else got them legally for them.

So the Leftist hue and cry for more gun control is nothing more than the usual Leftist attempt to gut the Second Amendment in any way they can and they are politicizing this event to promote their agenda. They should be thoroughly disgusted with themselves, but being cultural Marxists, they are not. The end justifies whatever means they use. I hope the president stands firm on the Second Amendment and does not emotionally cave in to their Leftist hysterics because, for them, it’s all an act, a sham, to promote taking down the Second Amendment. They all have bodyguards, with guns, but they don’t want ordinary, honest folks to have guns because they might actually shoot, in self defense, some of the Left’s Antifa or Black Lives Matter buddies and that would really be a tragedy, wouldn’t it? For them it is a tragedy if ordinary folks have the means to defend themselves. That’s a no no!

Lots of questions about this supposed shooter. Supposedly they found Antifa literature in his hotel room, along with an arsenal of firearms. You have to wonder how this man got all those guns up to his room on the 32nd floor. It must have been quite a chore–and no one saw him toting all this in. And we are talking about long guns here, not pistols that you might carry in a suitcase or a shoulder holster.

It is said he had cameras set up to film him shooting down at all those people and even had cameras set up in the hallway of the hotel so he could see if the cops were going to interrupt him. Did he have the expertise to set up all this equipment and make sure it worked? Or did he have help?

The shooter and his girlfriend seem to have Islamic connections and ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack. Of course you have to realize this is not Islamic terrorism. It reality it’s, well, it’s Islamic terrorism. Sort of like “when is an investigation not an investigation, but only a ‘matter’?” You know what I mean.

Here, if you follow all that is going on, you have a case of Muslim terrorists uniting with the Left in this country and elsewhere, and in this country, a main part of that agenda is the destruction of the Second Amendment. Please keep that in mind, because that is what a lot of this is all about. It’s a replay, on steroids, of many of the false flags that happened during the days of the Obama Regime where, after almost every shooting somewhere the scripted call for more and more gun control always seemed to emerge out of the chaos.

I watched an interesting video tonight (10/3) in which the action seemed to show that the shooting did not come from way up on the 32nd floor, where you could see no gun flashes coming from, but rather way down at almost ground level, where you could see gun flashes coming from and hear the weapons going off every time you saw the flashes. From the video, it looked like that might indicate more than one shooter. But, we are not supposed to talk about that, or even think about it–thought-crime, you know! Just forget I mentioned it.

Antifa has threatened civil war by November 4th this year. And considering this month is the 100th anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution they may try to celebrate that in this country with a 21st century version of Red October.

Just a little something to reflect on in your more serious moments.

This Site Contains…..whatever we don’t like, so it’s blocked

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

One thing you can learn from a visit to your local public library is that all internet sites are equal, but some are not quite as equal as others. And the ones that are not quite as equal as the others get blocked. Who gets to define what constitutes “equal” is yet another question. Back in the days when we spoke in more plain English because the fear of “offending” someone wasn’t quite as potent as it seems to be today, this sort of thing was just labeled for what it really was–censorship! 

This afternoon, I went with a friend to our local public library while he used one of their computers to check out his email and a few other things. While there, I did the same, and checked out several websites that I usually check out each day.

Toward the end of my checking I thought, since I had not checked it in two or three days, I would check out the website for The Confederate Society of America of which I am a member.

So I typed the name into the search line on the search engine and instead of being connected to CSA’s website I was connected with something called Barracuda which dutifully informed me that the site I was trying to connect with contained “hateful or racist material” or  words to that effect and therefore it was blocked and inaccessible to me. My first thought was “what’s this crap?” So I tried again and got the same politically correct response.

At that point I went to get one of the library employees and she came over to see what the problem was. She went to check and came back to tell me there was nothing they could do about it. All the parish libraries are set up like this. I asked her how I could file a complaint about this. She told me I would have to go see the head librarian at the main branch. I asked her why something like this is on their computers. She didn’t know but she said that this program is set up so that certain key words you type in trigger this response and that’s as far as you get. I asked her “I suppose the word Confederate is one of those key words?” She figured it probably would be. What a surprise!

I told her that “I happen to belong to this particular group and there is nothing racist or hateful on their site. It deals with culture and history and that’s all it deals with.” While she might have been sympathetic, there was nothing she could do. The whole thing was set up from the main library. Given the demographics of the city where the main library is located, I am really dubious as to whether talking to those people would do any good or be an exercise in futility (probably the latter), and I don’t need anymore futility than I already have. This particular city has a set of six flagpoles out in front of the city hall. Years ago, one of those flagpoles used to contain a First National Confederate States flag. Then black leadership assumed control. Need I say more?

Some of you all around the country might check out the computers in your own public libraries just to see if this censorship situation prevails in your areas and let us know. Maybe some areas are not yet burdened with this cultural Marxism, because that’s really all it is.  The cultural Marxists feel they need to be the final arbiters of what we see and hear and whether we like that or not makes no difference to them. They know what’s best (for them) and what’s best for them is that we don’t see and hear what gives them political indigestion. Kind of like the situation in Washington right now. Those generals on Mr. Trump’s staff seem to be deciding what he gets to see and hear and who he talks to and who is shut out. Same principle.

I just wonder who is responsible for deciding what material is “hateful” or “racist.” Who makes that decision? It is local folks? Is it this Barracuda outfit, or who? Or do some of these people involved have possible connections to the Southern Poverty Law Center for whom everything to the right of Joe Stalin is hateful?

These folks who may be denizens of the Great Swamp keep telling us all this is for our own good and that we are much better off if we don’t see the truth but rather let them interpret what is “racist” or “hateful” because they are the “experts” at all this.

Again, who gets to determine what is “racist” or “hateful” and what do they get out of it? That’s the real question.

Rewriting Your History By Destroying Your National Anthem–what they didn’t tell you

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

In my most recent article about the destruction of Southern history (and eventually all real US history) I noted that part of that destruction was the promotion of the “reality show” mentality and the promotion of continual sports extravaganzas. People can now watch continuous wall-to-wall sports programs literally every weekend as well as about three nights per week–giving them no time to think about anything of any greater depth than the batting averages of their favorite baseball players or the running yardage of their favorite football players. And then we have basketball, track, hockey, tiddly-winks and a host of others also.

And while there is nothing wrong with a little recreational viewing of various sports events  (I like to watch a good rodeo once in awhile myself) it has gotten to the point in this country now where the sports events are almost a form of idolatry.

Hopefully, some of that may be starting to change as some people begin to be rudely awakened to where some of our “sports” figures may really be at. They make millions of dollars a year and are able to live in the lifestyle of the rich and famous, yet when it comes to the National Anthem of the country where they have been so blessed, they can’t be bothered to stand up. In fact, they take the trouble to kneel in protest to that National Anthem. You have to wonder where some of these guys are politically–if they are even able to define a political thought. Patriotic they ain’t–somewhat Leftwing many of them may well be. And what about those that encourage them to participate in this inane stuff? You have to wonder how many of these encouragers have any leverage with the ball clubs these guys play for. Might be a good question for debate sometime.

So now we have many of these athletic “rocket scientists” kneeling in opposition to standing while the National Anthem is being played. They seem to feel that this country “oppresses” people of color and they buy into this “white privilege” claptrap. All I can say is, that with the millions many of them make every year, I’ve often had the thought that I wouldn’t mind being as financially “Oppressed” as they are. I suppose I shouldn’t say it, but I will anyway–people who make millions each year and still gripe about being “oppressed” are a batch of ingrates!

Why are they protesting the National Anthem? From the cultural Marxist viewpoint, there are several reasons, all of them part of the cultural Marxist agenda.

In the first place, the Anthem’s author, Francis Scott Key, was from the area around Frederick, Maryland. Back when Key was alive Maryland was considered a Southern state. Francis Scott Key was a Southerner. Reason One.

Key was born on a plantation in what was, at that point in history, Frederick County, Maryland. And Key’s family were (gasp! horror of horrors–slave owners!) That says most of it right there. Anyone who was a slave owner in the 1800s is, today, automatically beyond the pale–not even fit to be talked about except in a highly critical manner. Reason Two.

Francis Scott Key was a devout Episcopalian. As a youngster he had actually considered becoming an Episcopal priest, but ended up becoming a lawyer instead. I wonder if he ever reflected on his choice. He was active in his church. He helped found two Episcopal seminaries and was associated with the American Bible Society. So Francis Scott Key was a Christian. There’s Reason Three right there!

If you understand the mentality and the workings of the Shadow Government types in our day, you begin to see that there is a lot more to this protest against the National Anthem than you have been told about.

Key was a Southerner, a Christian, and was opposed to the radical abolitionism of the William Lloyd Garrison types. Therefore, he must be completely denigrated in front of what the Establishment feels are us stupid “deplorables” so we won’t gripe too much as they try to rewrite yet one more part of our history and try to replace our National Anthem with I want the world to sing (Obama’s first choice) or Kumbiya, or the Communist Internationale  or some other worthy Marxist ditty. Because changing our history and our perspective on our history is what all of this is really all about–and they are not above using some of the “useful idiots” in the NFL to accomplish that.

So, as you can begin to perceive, there is lots more involved here than a batch of spoiled brat athletes getting their panties in a twist. This is part of the planned assault on our culture, heritage, Christian faith, and history. We had better start to wake up to that fact. That might even involve starting to go to church on the Lord’s Day instead of just climbing out of bed and flipping on ESPN, which you might just be better off if you didn’t bother with!

They Are Rewriting Your History–do you care?

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Someone sent me an article from Fox News a couple days ago about two South Carolina politicians, one black and one white, that want to put up a new monument to honor a Union “black Civil War hero” in Columbia, South Carolina.

We presently exist in a cultural vortex in which Confederate monuments and flags are being pulled down or removed almost weekly. In that climate these two South Carolina legislators want to erect a monument to a “Union hero” in South Carolina, the original seat of Southern secession. I am almost tempted to ask “How are the mighty fallen?”

Now I am not disparaging the man they want to put the monument up to memorialize. I don’t know that much about him and he may well have been a brave man. There were many brave men (and some scoundrels) who supported the Union cause and even though I disagree with that cause (consolidation and collectivism) I don’t deny the bravery of many of its adherents.

But the way this particular South Carolina scenario is being handled it looks to me like little more than one more Yankee/Marxist attempt at rewriting our Southern history and promoting Union “values” while denigrating Confederate values. This cultural con game has been going on almost since Appomattox (and, in some various forms, it went on even before the War began). Southern culture has ever been the target of Northern “do-gooders” and their friends on the Left.

This rewrite scenario for our history struck me because these two politicians want to have this new Union monument erected on the “same South Carolina state house grounds where a Confederate flag flew until 2015.” Amazing coincidence!  And the Fox News article went on to state that: “Gregory and Jackson were two of the forces working together to have the Confederate flag removed from the Capitol grounds in July 2015.” Do you get what these modern carpetbaggers are doing here? They are replacing Confederate history with Union history in Columbia, South Carolina.

And in how many other places around the South also? How many articles have I seen in the past three years or so where, if some political bootlicker can’t get a Confederate monument removed, why then he, she, or it wants to have additional plaques, complete with “interpretive history” added to the scene so the Confederate monument can now be understood in its “proper context.” What that means, in plain English, is that they will now put up plaques with commentary on them that lies about what the monument really stands for. Sorry, but that’s the way it usually works out.

Find a Confederate monument somewhere that portrays three or four Confederate soldiers and some Leftist “historian” will work to put up a plaque or “interpretive” sign that says “The men represented on this monument  fought to preserve the institution of slavery in the South.” Think i’m kidding?  Go to some of your national “Civil War” battlefields and ask the staff there what the War was really all about. Ask some of those people why the South seceded and they will self-righteously inform you that it was “so the South could keep her slaves.” Any other reasons? Why, what other reason could there have been? It was all about slavery–“everybody” knows that. That’s what our “history” books say. Slavery in the North? Why whoever heard of that? Must be some kind of conspiracy theory! Like me, some of you all have been treated to this psycho-babble before. It’s what the PHDs  tell us–and they Pile it Higher and pile it Deeper than just about anybody else–because they are cultural Marxists and they have an agenda.

Their agenda is to rewrite your history and change your culture, but you all are supposed to be too stupid to figure that out. And if they manage to get enough flags and monuments removed and enough street names changed–and replaced with their opposite numbers from Yankee/Marxist Land, your history will be rewritten–and replaced–and your kids will never know the difference. That, along with the cultural Marxist hogwash they teach your kids in government schools, is the real name of the game. Your kids can do precious little to defend a culture, history, and heritage they are almost totally unaware of now, can they?

You folks who do nothing but sit home and watch reality shows and continuous sports extravaganzas,  all the while kidding yourselves that you love your Southern heritage,  had better start thinking about some of this stuff. You may not like what I write–but you better start thinking about some of this stuff. Your kids futures depend on it.

Think about this–once they have destroyed your history and culture and neutered you, the sports shows that bemused you will be gone. No more need for them then!  They will have accomplished their purpose for their promoters of keeping you bemused while their promoters destroyed your culture and heritage–and after they have accomplished that, there is no more need to “entertain” you–because you and your kids belong to them. Then the real fun starts–for them!!!
