If Hillary Wins the Ethnic Cleansing WILL Continue (and “Reconstruction” WILL be ongoing)

by Al Benson Jr.

As we draw closer to the cooler weather of Autumn in the year of our Lord 2016, many think, especially in the South, that they and their heritage have survived yet another “long hot Summer” and now that it’s over they can go back to sleep for the Winter. This is a serious delusion for them to labor under–because it is as false as Hillary’s campaign rhetoric about her deep respect for the Second Amendment.

The ethnic cleansing campaign of the cultural Marxist Leftists has not abated, nor with the current “election” (selection) coming up, will it. If (some folks say “when”) Hillary “wins” the election, by hook or by crook (probably mostly by crook)  you will see another strong thrust in the “reconstruction” agenda, probably one of the strongest you have seen since Obama’s first year, back when he promised to “fundamentally transform” the United States. Has it ever occurred to anyone that what Obama was talking about was yet another phase of “reconstruction?” And because he and Hillary, in spite of all the huggy-kissy  stuff the “news” media spins out there for you on TV, really hate each others guts, she will try to outdo what he did so she can claim she had to finish what he started. You see, even though many on the Left loathe each other,  they are willing to work together to cut our throats, culturally and otherwise, while we on the Right prefer to fight with one another over jots and tittles rather than engaging those who would purge our culture from the face of the earth. As perverse as they are, the Leftists know how to work together when it is necessary. We have not begun to figure that out yet, much less attempt it. And in the mix we have many “Republicans,” so called, who, in spite of their conservative rhetoric, work to make sure we never do figure it out.

There was an article on http://www.wnd.com on the 20th of last May, written by Curtis Ellis, called The Radical Left’s Ethnic Cleansing Of America.  Mr. Ellis informed us that Hillary and Obama try to make us believe the disappearing jobs in this country are something that is inevitable in “the new global economy.” Donald Trump doesn’t buy that pile of cow chips and neither do I.

Mr. Ellis observed, and quite accurately I believe, that, “…the radical left planned the liquidation of white, blue collar working families…in order to ‘fundamentally transform’ America. The decimation of America’s middle class and industrial strength is a case of murder, not accidental death. It was done with premeditation, malice and forethought. The latest evidence comes from Thomas Frank, a man of the left and former Wall Street Journal columnist. His new book, Listen Liberal, exposes how the radical left, the Clinton family and Wall Street deliberately liquidated the white working class of America.”

One of the first ways they did this was to infiltrate the labor unions, purging men who actually worked for a living from influential positions and replacing them with “upper middle class activists…” They did the same thing in the Democratic Party until it represented only the far left.

And, of course, to make this really successful, you had to do it in the South, and the South already had a mostly Christian foundation that those people hated with a purple passion. A few psy-ops operations down here using “useful idiots” waving Confederate flags worked wonders when the media spun it the right way. The situation in Charleston, South Carolina in June of 2015 was a prime example.

Wesley Pruden wrote an article for http://www.washingtontimes.com back on June 25th, 2015 in which he noted: “This fit of ethnic cleansing was inevitable, given the popularity of getting ourselves politically correct, which has grown from a cottage industry, employing mostly family and intimate friends, to a great industry embracing the likes of Amazon, Wal-Mart and eBay…What started with palpitations and occasional fainting spells at the sight of a Confederate flag, has become a nationwide search for something, anything, to bring on a cleansing fit of hysterics.” When Rush Limbaugh said, at that point, that what had happened to the Confederate flag would eventually happen to the US flag everyone snickered. Now I don’t always agree with Rush Limbaugh, but in this instance, he was right on the money. Since his comments we have seen the cultural Marxists go after the US flag, the Gadsden flag, even the original Betsy Ross flag– all because they were all “racist” or “non-inclusive” or for whatever lame-brained reason they could conjure up at the time. But, for whatever reason, they all have to go. And Western culture and civilization also has to go. White culture must go–to be replaced with black culture, brown culture, purple culture with green spots, or whatever “culture” is deemed the best qualified to replace white culture–immediately if not sooner!

In the course of all this, Mr. Pruden brought up an interesting point. He observed that, as long as “racist” flags and monuments have to go–what about the Lincoln Memorial? He noted that “Honest” Abe “described himself as a white supremacist in language a Klansman could admire.” And if you think that statement is untrue, then you need to read The Lincoln/Douglas Debates. I assure you that Mr. Pruden knows whereof he speaks.

If you are naive enough to think the cultural Marxists have forgotten about you or don’t care what you do or say, then read an article by Kristinn Taylor on http://www.thegatewaypundit.com for July 7th of 2015, where she quotes an article from Politico Magazine by contributing editor Michael Lind.  Lind’s article describes the South as “Jesusland” and it states that the South “keeps the US down by its faith in God…” That should show you where the mindset of this publication is at. Politico whines about the fact that “conservative, religious white Southerners” are stopping the US  from “being more like Britain, Canada, and other liberal, English speaking democracies.” And Taylor observes: “The article concludes with the hope that the South will be ethnically and culturally cleansed by immigrants from other countries and liberals relocating from other parts of the US.” From that one statement alone do you begin to understand the Obama/Clinton/One World Government agenda for first your Southland and then for the rest of the country. While you sit bemused with your reality shows the Leftists are working at ways to do you  and your grandchildren in. Is that getting through to you yet??? They couldn’t say it any plainer!

So if (when) Hillary ascends to the regal throne in Washington, you can bet that “reconstruction” that never really ended, will be ongoing, because all of us nasty white Christian Southerners have to be expunged from this part of the country, and eventually from the rest as well–but first the South, then the West, and all the rest will fall into line after that.

One final thought occurs to me. If you want to work to forestall or prevent this, find yourself a good conservative Christian Church–one that advocates families having lots and lots of kids. The culture you save with lots of offspring, Christian-educated offspring, just may be your own.

Louisiana Had (and Has) Precious Little to Thank Washington For

by Al Benson Jr.

Have just finished reading Richard Taylor and the Red River Campaign of 1864 by Samuel W. Mitcham Jr. It was a very informative book on the infamous Red River Campaign (and Union cotton-stealing expedition) in Louisiana in the Spring of 1864.

Union General (and presidential aspirant) Nathaniel (Commissary) Banks led a Union army of over 30,000 men, which included several U S Navy boats and Commodore David Dixon Porter in a campaign to capture Shreveport, Louisiana for the glorious Union. The Navy folks and their vessels were supposedly along to aid General Banks in this effort, but most of them were much more interested in “appropriating” as much Louisiana cotton as they could get their hands on. Made no difference whether it was cotton owned by the Confederate government or privately-owned cotton, as the Navy got a cut out of whatever they managed to “confiscate.”

Opposing this Northern redistribution of Southern wealth by Lincoln’s “indestructible” Union was General Richard Taylor and a little over 5,000 men, mostly from Louisiana, Texas and Arizona. Believe it or not, with over 30,000 men and the help of the U S Navy, Banks couldn’t get it done, and Dick Taylor, as they say here in Louisiana, “whupped his ass.”

After he got as far as Mansfield and got solidly beaten there, Banks started his retreat back south. But at first he refused to call it a retreat, rather he labeled it a “retrograde” movement. That’s Yankee/Marxist language for a retreat without coming out and admitting it. However, the Yankee/Marxist soldiers who had been legitimately defeated at Mansfield were going to make sure they got back at the folks in Louisiana because they tried to defend their homes and property. Louisiana folks hadn’t learned that when the Yankee/Marxists come calling then defending your home and property is a no-no. Yankee/Marxists have no use whatever for private property–unless they can steal it, and naturally they always steal it for “the people.”

According to Mr. Mitcham, Confederate Lt. Col. Francis Richard Lubbock wrote: “The demoralized enemy in their retreat left no houses or fences, stock or supplies, behind them.  Everything of any possible value was taken or destroyed.” And Elias P. Pellet of the 114th New York Volunteers was honest enough to agree with Lubbock in his history of the 114th Regiment when he wrote: “Destruction and desolation followed on the trail of the retreating column. At night, the burning buildings mark our pathway. As far as the eye can reach, we see in front new fires breaking out, and in the rear the dying embers tell the tale of war. Hardly a building is left unharmed…The wanton and useless destruction of property has well earned (A. J. Smith’s) command a lasting disgrace…” A. J. (Whiskey) Smith was one of the Yankee/Marxist commanders under Banks and he had that nickname because he was rather too fond of the bottle.

Mr Mitcham also write: “To deprive both Rebels and civilians of food and water, wells were fouled and animals were shot, including cows, calves, hogs, horses, chickens, and mules. Houses, barns, corncribs, smokehouses, chicken coops, and Negro cabins were all burned.” It seems that “Firebug” Sherman in Georgia was not the only Yankee/Marxist arsonist during the War. It was probably a toss-up between Whiskey Smith and Phil Sheridan in Virginia as to who would get second place to Sherman. This commentary regarding Yankee arsonism is on page 250 of Mr. Mitcham’s book. He continues with more of the same on pages 259-60. Not fun reading unless you are a Yankee arsonist. They literally destroyed everything in their path even when it had no military value. You have to understand, they were making war on civilians as well as soldiers, and what’s more, they seemed to enjoy doing it.

On page 306 Mr. Mitcham made a very telling observation, which most folks today would probably not even think about. He wrote: “It took Louisiana almost a century to recover from the war,  and it has yet to recover its previous position. In 1860, it was ranked second in the Union in per capita income, and half of all American millionaires lived along the Natchez-New Orleans axis. Today it ranks forty-first in per capita income…”

The thought occurred to me, as I read this, that, starting with the major cotton theft here in Louisiana and in other places in the South as well, the War of Northern Aggression was one gigantic redistribution of the wealth scheme, not only to destroy our culture but to bleed us dry financially also. Didn’t von Clauswitz say that “war was the pursuit of political goals by ‘other means.'” If the “political goal” is to destroy the South, then for the Yankee/Marxist, war is a legitimate option.

You might say that this was the “Neanderthal version” of cultural Marxism, along with “reconstruction” later that was to deliver the coup d’ etat to the culture, faith, and financial stability of the South.  They weren’t able to take it quite as far as they would have liked to, but give the Yankee/Marxists credit–they did their absolute best to contribute to our destruction and demise as a distinct people–and they are still working on that as I write this.

Our problem is that the majority of our folks don’t realize that “those people” are still fighting their war against us. We quit fighting. They didn’t! All they did was to change their tactics. We are seeing the latest development of their new tactics in our day.

To their way of thinking the War will not be over until they have completely destroyed us, our faith and culture. They want our grandchildrens’ souls in their hip pocket. That’s a truth we have to begin to realize and so far, I don’t think we’ve grasped it yet.

Marxists and Monuments in New Orleans (and elsewhere)

by Al Benson Jr.

Well, today (September 24th) is the day that a far left group called “Take ‘Em Down Nola” which has aligned itself with Black Lives Matter, has decided that the statue of Andrew Jackson in New Orleans has to come down. It’s got to be done today. These worthies claim that the police in New Orleans will just have to step aside and watch while they dismantle the statue of Jackson which is in the French Quarter. This group has made threats against the police and Mayor Mitch Landrieu in the past. Had anyone on the right side of the political spectrum done such it would have been a federal crime of almost international proportions but as long as someone on the left has made the threats they will be ignored. That’s the way “equality under the law” works in this country anymore.  The left goes to jail and immediately gets a free pass out. The rigt just goes to jail for 99 years and the key is thrown away.

This leftist group claims they want to police to step aside so they can do their “civic duty.” You see, in the murky netherworld of the theological and political left, vandalism is redefined  as a civic duty as long as what you are tearing down is part of white culture. I guess we will just have to wait until the end of the day to find out whether these cultural Marxists were allowed by authorities in New Orleans to perform their “civic duty.” Somehow, I can’t imagine the mayor of New Orleans giving them all that much of a hassle. I’m sure if they decided to do their “civic duty” with Confederate monuments (which they yet may) Comrade Landrieu would have a field day!

As for the group they are aligned with, Black Lives Matter, it’s been around since 2013, formed by Alicia Garza who, according to http://www.discoverthenetworks.org has described herself as a “queer social justice activist who reveres the Marxist revolutionary, former Black Panther, and convicted cop-killer Assata Shakur for her contributions to the Black Liberation Movement.” Garza collaborated with two others of her Marxist ilk to form the Black Lives Matter group.

Discover the Networks also observed that “Though BLM is intended to represent the needs and grievances of all black people, Garza makes it clear that her organization is especially committed to helping ‘Black queer and trans folks’…” These people do let you know what they are all about.

The platform for Black Lives Matter states, in part: “We believe in elevating the experiences and leadership of the most marginalized Black people, including but not limited to those who are women, queer, trans, femmes, gender nonconforming, Muslim, formerly and currently incarcerated…” You can tell this is a Marxist group. They support all the right people.

In an article written for Conservative Daily Post Eric Whittle wrote on September 23rd that: “Regardless, one spokesperson for Take “Em Down Nola said that they would forcefully remove the (Jackson) monument if necessary, adding ‘that’s not a threat, that’s a promise.’ Take ‘Em Down Nola vandalized monuments with the message ‘take ’em down or we will.” How much more will it take to make folks realize their culture and way of life is under assault?

Just out of curiosity, I wonder how many of those that claim to belong to this second cousin to Black Lives Matter are really from New Orleans and how many are imports brought in from somewhere else to help stoke the fires of “civil rights.” That is a common tactic among Marxist groups–bringing in outsiders to help spread the mayhem and claiming they are all discontented local folks when actually many of them are nothing more than professional leftist agitators.

A good case in point is the riots in Charlotte, North Carolina,  by the merest coincidence, taking place at the same time as the current brouhaha in New Orleans.

An article on http://www.zerohedge.com for September 23rd by Tyler Durden noted the comments of a man from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Fraternal Order of Police. He said: “This is not Charlotte out here. These are outside entities that are coming in and causing these problems. These are not protesters, these are criminals…if you go back and look at some of the arrests that were made last night.I can about say probably 70% of those had out-of-state IDs. They’re not coming from Charlotte.” And Mr. Durden also observed that “18 months ago, as the riots flared in Ferguson, there was one man pulling the strings of this domestic false flag…George Soros.  George Soros donated $33 million to social justice organizations which helped turn the events in Ferguson  from a local protest into a national flashpoint.” Soros has also funded Black Lives Matter, the second cousin to this group in New Orleans that is working to tear your culture down.

It’s about time, in fact it’s long past time that we in the South woke up and realized that there is a concerted Marxist and One World Government agenda afoot to totally dismantle and do away with our history, faith, culture and heritage–and most of us blithely sit back and watch it happen. Then we complain when our grandchildren grow up to be little Marxists. You better wake up and smell the coffee while there is still some left to smell!

Will We Lose Our Heritage Because Of Our Apathy?

by Al Benson Jr.

Ahhh, yet another “unilateral” action by our beloved ruler! Those people that were ignorant enough to vote for him apparently did not grasp the salient fact that they were electing a dictator who was going to do whatever he wanted to do in the face of a do-nothing Congress. On the other hand maybe some of them (especially those at the top) did and that’s why they voted for him and promoted him.

I recently red an article on http://freedomoutpost.com  that stated: “The Veterans Affairs Department quietly moved this month to ban the flying of Confederate flags from fixed flagpoles at the cemeteries it runs, striking yet another blow against the controversial emblem. Congress had debated and rejected that change, but the Obama administration decided to move forward anyway, saying that it was unilaterally imposing the restrictions.”

We are more and more being confronted with a leftist rogue administration that, if Congress votes against what it wants, it goes ahead and does it anyway–and the Congress sits there like a bunch of dumb dogs and does nothing, says nothing, hears nothing and sees nothing–like the proverbial brass monkey.

It’s long past the time when we should have awakened and realized that what we have in Washington is one single political bird with two wings, a real left(ist) wing and a phony right wing so that when the bird flies he can only turn to the left. You would think that if Congress voted against something and our beloved ruler decided he’d just go ahead and do it anyway that they would call him on it, but no, if he decides he’s going to spit in their faces they will spend all their time before the next election telling their constituents back home that they’d try to spend more time at local town hall meetings if they weren’t so busy in Washington wiping all that dew off their faces!

But our beloved ruler is not only spitting in the faces of our erstwhile elected representatives, he is also spitting in the face of every genuine Southern patriot and everyone who had an ancestor who fought under that flag in the War of Northern Aggression, myself included.

And the political spittle isn’t only flowing from Washington. In the last year it has emanated from many state capitols, too many of them in the South, and from many city and town councils in the South that are presently peopled by individuals that came either from somewhere up north, or worse yet, from foreign countries  and have not the vaguest concept of our faith, history and heritage and hence they have no trouble trashing it on a regular basis because they have realized that most Southern folks are just not going to say all that much.

Why good Southern people continue to elect such creatures to rule over them is beyond me. Maybe it’s the fluoride they are pumping into most of our water supplies now, or the government (public) schools that have taught generations of Southern folks so now they have gotten to where they can’t tell upside down from inside out!

However you slice the bread or cut the mustard, Southern and Confederate heritage is being routinely denigrated on a daily basis and most Southern folks couldn’t seem to care less anymore.

Rep. Jared Huffman, a “progressive” (socialist) from California posing as a Democrat (there really isn’t a dimes worth of difference) had pushed for this. He calls those of us who revere Confederate flags and symbols “racists” and he labels the flag an “anachronistic symbol of hatred.” It’s quite clear that Mr. Huffman has not bothered to do the history homework,. He doesn’t really need to.  As long as he can brand all those that dare to oppose his opinions as “racists” that’s all he needs. No history, no documentation, no proof for his position, just an epithet thrown at those who dare to disagree with his exalted views. Problem is, most of us just sit back and take it.

The Freedom Outpost article makes a telling statement, one that should sting most of us. It says: “Rep. Huffman is right about one thing:  the Battle Flag is out of time. It is dated and out of place. Not because of what he thinks it stands for, but because the cause that it stood for has long left the memory of the people it was fought for–America.

Your heritage is like anything else–if you don’t cherish it and rightly use and promote it–you lose it. Enough said.

The South and the West–Targets for cultural destruction

by Al Benson Jr.

Frequently in recent years I have commented on the fact that the cultural American South and the cultural American West have the very same Federal adversaries. Therefore it seems reasonable to me that Southern and Western Americans that wish to preserve their unique cultures should sit down and talk with one another and seek ways to help one another prevent the planned destruction of both of our cultures.

There has been a lot in the past couple years in the news media (if such it can be called) about problems in the West with the Feds basically, if the truth were known, trying to run ranchers off their land because they seem to have a “more compelling” use for that land than the folks who have ranched and farmed it for the past 150 years, and please let’s don’t kid ourselves–the Feds are out to destroy the ranching culture in the Far West. It is one small residue of authentic American culture that they absolutely loathe because it breeds an independent spirit and the Feds hate independence, especially for ordinary folks, when we should all be getting programmed for the United Nations Agenda 21 scenario where no one has any independence. Anyone that has followed even the crooked news media has to realize that, in the West, the Feds are laboring mightily to crush any local independence.

While this problem might not be quite as openly apparent in the South it is still there, and beginning to manifest itself more and more, both with the ethnic cleansing campaign in regard to anything Confederate, and also with what people can and can’t do with their own land (which the Feds really consider to be theirs).

I recently got an article off the Kennedy Twins web site written by my good friend and co-author Donnie Kennedy entitled Crows, Slimy Frogs and Federal Tyranny. Donnie’s article points up several areas in which the problems of the Southerner and Westerner are just about identical.

Donnie observes: “From Point (Louisiana) we turn to the other end of the once sovereign State of Louisiana, where a land owner in St. Tammany Parish has run afoul of the Federal Registry, the EPA, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. It seems that fifty years ago his land was the habitat of the Mississippi Gopher Frog. The Federal Government in its ‘wisdom’ had determined to reintroduce this frog onto its ancient habitat–landowner be damned, the frogs and the Feds come first! Of course the Federal Government is assuring everyone  that it has no desire to disabuse the landowner of his property and everything will be done to make sure they can co-exist peacefully. Just stop and think. How much value has this man lost because his land is now under the ‘oversight’ of the Federal Government?  Before any change can be made on his property, it must pass Federal scrutiny. The value of his property has been greatly reduced and he must stand and obey the edicts of the supreme Federal Government.” Sound familiar to any of you folks in the West?  Can anyone say “desert tortoise”?

Years ago a man in the John Birch Society gave a speech I never forgot. He talked for over two hours with no notes. He had it all in his head. I heard him give the same speech on two different occasions. One thing he said always stuck with me. He said “It’s not really who owns the property that’s important. It’s who controls it.” The one who controls what can or can’t be done with the property, in essence, “owns” it no matter whose name is on the deed.

Same situation with property taxes. You may own property and have your name on the deed, but if you fail to pay your yearly rent for the use of that property then some governing body will come along and take “your” property and you can light your cigar with your deed because all it will be worth is the price of a good match.

We really need to begin rethinking our concepts of property, of taxes, of Federal regulations and a whole lot more because implicit in all government taxes, both West and South, is the concept that government really owns it all and we are only there by their sufferance. You may not like that thought. I may not like it but we really need to start thinking about it because, in Federal eyes, that’s the way it really is.

Ole Miss Continues Its March Toward “Relevancy”

by Al Benson Jr.

It seems that many of these colleges and universities in the South today don’t really feel “relevant” anymore, or maybe the proper term might be “politically correct” or more properly yet “culturally Marxist.” Somehow, it seems, their leadership and faculties must labor to convince  the cultural Marxists out there that they really, sincerely, want to play their game, but they have to do it in such a way that it will not alert those who still cherish Southern culture as to their true intent.

Therefore, they take the classical Fabian socialist approach that they might attain their intended destruction of Southern culture incrementally, all the while assuring those that might send their kids to be “educated” in their Ivory Towers that they really do treasure Southern culture and heritage, but, for the sake of being relevant in today’s changing world, they must work at soft-peddling that heritage just a bit, lest some Black Panther or Muslim terrorist become “offended.” For them the “sin” of offending someone is more heinous than the sin of adultery, which they really don’t consider all that bad anymore.

Ole Miss has gone in this direction. In its infinite wisdom, their leadership has decided to completely trash its Southern heritage and cultural background (incrementally of course) while assuring potential enrollees that this is the last thing they want to do. It may be the last thing they want to get caught doing, but hardly the last thing they really want to do.

I’ve worked at two different colleges over the years, one in the East and the other in the Midwest and from what I could see from either one, they seemed to think their mission was to “fundamentally transform”  the students sent to them so that their parents would hardly recognize them when they returned home. I had one lady even tell me once, “Since our daughter came here I don’t even know her anymore.” And she wasn’t happy with that. I told her “I could get fired for saying this to you but if you want your daughter back, taker her out of this school.” I don’t know if she ever did, but I felt it was sound advice. The “fundamental transformation” I have seen with many of these college kids is, in many cases, far from positive.

And at Ole Miss, this seems to be the plan also. They started out banning Confederate battle flags at ball games. That took awhile because, at first, the kids kept showing up with them at games anyway, but the school leadership persisted, and the kids, not realizing their heritage was under subtle attack, eventually started leaving the flags back at the dorm. Then they changed the school mascot. Col. Reb just had to go! He “offended” too many people, and who knows where all those people came from. Some may not have been Southerners who should have realized that, in the South, they don’t do things quite the same as they do in Trenton, New Jersey. Some may have been brainwashed Southern kids, because, as we know if we’ve done the homework, the brainwashing in public schools literally starts on the first day in Kindergarten.

Now it turns out the school band will be prevented from playing Dixie, while the school still talks of how it preserves Southern traditions–which it seems they are seeking to stab in the back culturally, one by one. What they want is a school that is totally identified with what they call the “New South.” And, as one man said years ago in a speech I heard “The New South is NO South.” He was right.

I wonder–how many of those that send their kids to Ole Miss that are from the South realize what is going on–and if they realized it would they be in agreement with it? And if they couldn’t agree with the hatchet job being done on their culture, would they consider putting their kids in some other school–if they could find another one that wasn’t doing the same thing? Years ago author William Lind wrote an article in which he called America’s colleges “little ivy-covered North Korea’s” He was right too.

The problem becomes more and more difficult for parents who want their youngsters to get a college education without being totally brainwashed. They really have to search to find places this can be accomplished and the number of such places seems to be diminishing.

There are some Christian colleges where this is possible, but you have to be careful there too, because some Christian colleges have also drunk the leftist Kool Aid, and may or may not even realize it. Parents in the South who want their Southern traditions and culture preserved for their children and grandchildren have got to be really discerning as to where they send them to college and I don’t envy them the homework they will have to do in making that decision in our culturally Marxist society today.

One Way To Fight Back–Sue The SOB’s

by Al Benson Jr.

Just yesterday (August 16th) someone sent me an article from the Courthouse News Service http://www.courthousenews.com written by Elizabeth Warmerdam about an artist in California suing the state for barring Confederate flags. The article notes: “California’s ban on state agencies selling or displaying items showing the Confederate flag is unconstitutional, says an artist who was not allowed to show his Civil War painting at the Fresno County Fair…Timothy Desmond sued the state on Monday, claiming the law prevents him from displaying his artwork at the Big Fresno Fair, operated by the 21st District Agricultural  Association on land owned by Fresno County. Artists display their work at the Fresno Fair every October. Desmond says the law violates the First Amendment.” One thing you have to understand here, the First Amendment only applies if we are not talking about Confederate flags or symbols.  In their case it does not apply–the law of government censorship in regard to anything Confederate then becomes the state and national standard.

Desmond does not agree. The painting he wants to display shows a scene from the 1864 siege of Atlanta and, guess what, there are Confederate flags in the picture, making it automatically verboten. Desmond is asking the Federal Court to declare California’s law as “unconstitutionally overbroad.” The bill was introduced in February of 2014, (even before the insanity in Charleston) by Assemblyman Isadore Hall, after his mother saw a replica of some Confederate money with the flag on it for sale in the Capitol gift ship in Sacramento. Governor Jerry Brown, that staunch advocate of First Amendment rights (for those that agree with him) couldn’t wait to sign this bill into law.So now an artist that dares to depict a Confederate flag in any sketch or painting might just as well forget his work being shown anywhere where the state has any say over what is displayed. That this smacks more than a little of state censorship is totally immaterial. After all, we are talking about Confederate flags here and everyone knows they should not be allowed to be displayed anywhere. Just ask any Communist and he will tell you! These are the folks that support Hillary in the upcoming “election” scam and they know what the game is even if most public-school educated Americans don’t have a clue.

So Timothy Desmond is suing the state of Commiefornia, oops, I meant California. Sorry about that. I wish Mr. Desmond well in his lawsuit. I don’t know if he will be victorious or not but at least he is making the state fight to enforce their censorship and ethnic cleansing.

In the same vein, the Sons of Confederate Veterans is suing the city of Natchitoches, Louisiana for them not being able to carry their battle flags in the annual parade there that they have marched in for years. The mayor in that fair city told them, basically, you are welcome to come but leave your flags in your vehicles, preferably out of sight. The SCV didn’t march. They picketed the parade–at both ends. Now they are suing the city.

The SCV groups in New Orleans also have a lawsuit against that city to prevent them from removing Confederate monuments. A court has stopped the city from trying to remove the monuments until all the litigation is out of the way.Of course New Orleans has been having some difficulty finding someone willing to take the monuments down.

And, according to an article in The Times-Picayune back in April of this year “Almost three out of four Louisiana residents oppose removing Confederate monuments and symbols from public space, according to a poll taken by LSU in February. Only 20 percent of people surveyed favored Confederate monument removal.” Of course we all know that to be politically correct (and culturally Marxist, which is their agenda for American society) the wishes of the 20 percent should be parroted and the wishes of the 80 percent should be ignored.  After all, the 80 percent are the ones that pay the bills. What do they know?

As much as we don’t like the concept of a litigious society yet more and more we are coming to the point where, to get any relief from what overbearing governments are doing to us we are having to learn to “sue the SOB’s” because nothing else seems to check their grasp for power. And although the courts most surely don’t always solve the problem, once in awhile they do rule in favor or ordinary folks and once in awhile the lawsuits make it just that much more difficult for over-grasping governmental bodies to force their will on us. At least, in some cases, it slows them down and makes then sweat to earn their tyranny.
