Why Do Southerners Continue to Finance the Destruction of Their Children and Culture?

by Al Benson Jr.

It never ceases to amaze me how people can continue to feed their progeny into those Marxist meatgrinders  we refer to as public schools and “institutions of higher learning” and then wonder why their kids come home spouting the lessons they have learned about Marx or Mao or Che and how wonderful the society they have planned for us will be.

People spend literally millions every year paying through the nose for “educations” for their children when, in most cases, all these “educations” are really all about is the planned destruction of their culture and faith. That may sound harsh to some, but having worked around and at colleges, I can attest to what those institutions do to kids’ faith and culture. While I am not indicting every teacher or professor  (there are some honest ones, though not nearly enough) I do indict the systems they work for that claim to be about “education” but are really about student indoctrination.

Confirmation of my viewpoint was driven home to me awhile back by a friend in Georgia who has been part of the Southern Movement and happened to have a Confederate flag in his garage. One day his grandson came over and asked him why he had that “racist” flag in his garage. The grandson attends the local public school. Realizing there was a definite problem with his grandson’s history education, Grandpa has taken it upon himself to work with his grandson to correct some of the gross errors  perpetrated by that school’s “history” or “social studies” teachers and, at last report, it seemed to be helping out. And that is good. But how many grandsons across the South and other places have this same historical bilge thrown at them where there is no help from concerned grandfathers or dads? Too many!  And our history and our culture are being systematically trashed–and we are willingly paying for it!

The same is true of colleges in the South. Many naive Southern folks think they can just avoid these problems by making sure their kids attend Southern colleges and don’t go north for their higher education. That could have been true 130 years ago or so–but no more. Southern colleges have been thoroughly infiltrated by the minions of cultural Marxism every bit as much as those in Yankeeland, and we had better wake up and smell the college coffee–and I can guarantee you won’t like the aroma–it has the smell of the far, far Left!

A case in point–Richard Meagher, a political science professor at Randolph Macon College in Ashland, Virginia. Professor Meagher just had an op-ed piece printed in the Richmond Times-Dispatch for January 1, 2017. The headline for his piece was A plea for the new year: No more Confederate nonsense, please.  Meagher admits he is a transplanted Northerner and that, therefore, he feels his opinion will be worthless to a good number of Virginia folks and other Southerners as well–yet here he is, teaching in the South, and spreading that opinion to lots of Southern young folks. I guess he figures if he can’t change their parents’  minds the least he can do is to indoctrinate the kids and change theirs. This was a classic “reconstruction” tactic after the War of Northern Aggression. Ignore the parents and indoctrinate the kids.

If what he says in his op-ed piece is a sample of what he promotes in his classes then those kids that sit in his classes are in trouble. Meagher states: “When I teach my politics courses, I remind students that the long history of American politics boils down to the repeated need to placate racist Southerners. Beginning with the three-fifths compromise in the Constitution, and continuing through decades of compromise to prevent a Civil War, Northern politicians did their best to tolerate a brutal apartheid   regime that was improbably nested within their developing democracy.” And he states later that: “To put it bluntly: The Confederates were the bad guys, as were their Jim Crow descendants.  They lost, and the country is immeasurably better for it.” Really? Someone should ask Mr. Meagher about the Jim Crow laws in Illinois sometime, though I doubt if he’d acknowledge the existence of them, but exist they did, whether he will admit it or not.

Meagher has no patience with Southern claims about states rights or that the War was about the principle of secession. He labels those claims as “preposterous.” You can tell from the running dog of his commentary that all his students will ever get out of his classes is that the War was fought over slavery. For him there is no other reason worthy of mention, and besides we all know–that the Confederates were the bad guys, right? You can bet your kids will know that after sitting at the feet of the “master.”

Mr. Meagher attended the City University of New York where he got his Ph. D. so I guess that is the line they preach there. Although you would have thought, with a Ph. D. he would have realized that is country was a Republic, not a “developing democracy,” but the difference between the two seems lost on him.

What it all boils down to is this–we have just got to cease celebrating all this “Confederate nonsense” and we “need to stop holding up the Confederacy as something to honor.” In other words, the Yankee/Marxists don’t like what we do here in the South and so we just need to stop doing it to keep them happy. And when we stop doing this or that they don’t like, why before long, they will appear with another demand to cease and desist from something else they don’t like. Do you begin to see where all this is headed?

As you can see, the systematic attack on Confederate history and heritage has already begun for 2017. Meagher fired the opening shot on New Year’s day–he didn’t even wait for the warm weather like the cultural Marxists did the last two years. And good Southern patriots better not wait for the warm weather to answer him either. The battle for your culture, faith, and heritage has already been joined for 2017. The only question is–how long will it take before us “bad guys” decide to fight back???

Please Pass the Planned Poverty

by Al Benson Jr.

How many folks chanced to drive through parts of the South in the 1950s, 60s and even in the early 70s and noted how poor the country seemed to be compared with other areas of the United States? Many probably wondered why the South couldn’t seem t do better that it was doing. To say that the South, in our lifetime, was and is the poorest part of the country, with the possible exception of Indian reservations, is no exaggeration. And yet, knowing some of the reasons for that and the history behind it, my wife and I, now living in Louisiana, would not willingly go back north to live. The South is home, and we have been more content here than just about any other place we’ve lived, for several reasons.

There are reasons for the poverty in much of the South and for the poor whites and blacks that live in it, and in many cases the poverty is not their fault. It was intended for them to live that way by those that sought to conquer them during and after the War of Northern Aggression and by the descendants of those conquerors who, even today, enjoy rubbing their faces in the planned poverty that is supposed to be their due because their ancestors had the temerity to stand up and “dare defend their rights.” Such is not to be tolerated in the cultural Marxist milieu.

To explain some of this, Ron and Donnie Kennedy have a new book out called Punished With Poverty published by Shotwell Publishing in Columbia, South Carolina http://www.ShotwellPublishing.com  which I would recommend to any and all who wonder why the South has been in the particular situation we have found her in today. About the best way I can say it (excuse my bluntness) is that those collectivist types that overran the South during and after the War planned it that way. If Southern people were too poor and beaten down to fight back again, why there would be no future resistance to what would eventually morph into what we call the New World Order.

To quote the Kennedy Brothers: “Several years ago and elderly friend of the Kennedy Twins told a story about how his grandmother  often stated that ‘those people tried to starve all of us to death after the War.’ Two things struck me about this man’s story: First, his grandmother lived in North Central Louisiana, a section of the South that was not even physically touched by the War; second, his grandmother was not talking about starvation as a result of military action in and around her home but the actions of ‘those people,’ that is, Yankees, well after the War. The war was over, what happened to the idea of ‘with malice toward none,’…” If you’ve read the history you know what happened to it. It was nice Lincolnian  political rhetoric and that’s all it was.

And the Kennedys noted also: “(A) leading Northern newspaper called for a terrible retribution against Southerners: ‘We mean to conquer them,  Subjugate them…’ Never would traitors be permitted to ‘return to peaceful and contented homes’; instead they ‘must find poverty at their firesides and see privation in the anxious eyes of mothers and the rags of children.” Now isn’t this just an ennobling Northern sentiment? Somehow this isn’t quite the picture of the noble, generous and forgiving Yankees that i was taught about in my public indoctrination center’s “history” books.  The Kennedys ask the question: “Did the nation that spawned the articles quoted above, calling for Northerners  to ‘conquer and subjugate’ the South and leave the future generations of Southerners to ‘find poverty at their firesides and see privation in the anxious eyes of mothers and the rags of children,’ institute a Reconstruction policy that fulfilled these hideous propositions? One final question that must be asked: Is the policy of impoverishment and subjugation of Southerners an ongoing political policy of modern America?” How can you answer that question any other way but “Hell, Yes.”

The Kennedys also observed that: “For Northerners who view themselves via standard establishment propaganda as grand defenders of the downtrodden and promoters of freedom, reading about how the war against the South was instituted in order to secure profits and power for the North’s ruling elite, will not be gleefully embraced.” While that is understandable, in view of what we were all taught in public indoctrination centers, if some of the Northern folks want to really grasp what the War was all about then they are going to have to start embracing what the Kennedys talk about here–gleefully or otherwise.

There is so much in this book that I can’t do more than scratch the surface here, but in the words of the late Alan Stang,  when he reviewed Donnie’s and my book, Lincoln’s Marxists, in regard to Punished With Poverty, “You need to read this book!” I will be passing more information out of Punished With Poverty along as the Lord enables.

A Slightly Revised Onslaught Of Cultural Marxist Drivel

by Al Benson Jr.

Regarding what we still mistakenly call “journalists” we are forced to admit that they long ago abdicated their positions as responsible journalists and willingly prostituted themselves for the Ruling Establishment and its leftist cronies. They have no credibility left, which they have a hard time admitting, so they seek to denigrate their adversaries while covering themselves with journalistic fig leaves. Who in his right mind still watches the “Communist News Network” or the “Communist Broadcasting System” and expects any truth? Only the “useful idiots!”

At any rate, Mark Potok claims the phones at the SPLC have been ringing off the hook with folks concerned about the “radical right” who are, if you read between the lines, all Trump supporters. Anyone who knows the history of the SPLC realizes that a big part of their agenda–a big part–is painting anyone who is politically to the right of Hillary Clinton as a “hate group.” And it doesn’t make any difference if it’s just one person or a large group. If you dare to disagree with the leftist agenda for this countrly then you are a “hate group” period! End of discussion!

Interestingly enough, according to Pastor Chuck Baldwin, writing in http://www.NewsWithViews.com back in February of 2013, the Southern Poverty Law Center…”has long been used by the federal government and the national press corps to paint conservative organizations as ‘extremists,’ ‘anti-government,’ ‘hate groups,’ etc. No sooner would the SPLC issue some attack piece in their newsletter and police agencies all over the country would be issuing bulletins to their officers regurgitating what the SPLC had just spewed out. No private organization has this kind of connection to, and influence over, police agencies nationwide without collaboration with the Department of Justice in Washington, D.C.”

And Pastor Baldwin pointed in that article to a report by Judicial Watch “confirming that the DOJ and the SPLC are intricately tied at the hip.”

That being the case, this gives you some idea of where Puente’s commentary in this article is headed and where the cultural Marxist agenda is going to be headed in the next year or so. So if you folks here in the South thought that because the weather got a little cooler of late that the culture war was over, baby, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet! So don’t just sit and watch, get ready to resist–because they are about to ramp up their efforts to totally destroy our culture and heritage along with that of any patriotic  Americans out there that may still be left.

But all, fortunately, has not gone well for the left. I just got word today that the A & E KKK project had been cancelled. It seem that some of those who were to be participants in the project had been paid to do so, which was supposed to be a no-no. There were also allusions that there was a bit of a backlash to this project. I’d be willing to give that explanation more credibility than the one about them being paid. It may well be that enough folks out there are just plain fed up and disgusted with being labeled as “racist” rednecks and “deplorables” because they didn’t have the good sense to vote for Comrade Hillary that they are starting to fight back. If so, that’s all to the good. The drivel the cultural Marxists have been throwing at us for decades now needs to be repudiated and exposed for just what it is–an eight-letter word you don’t say in polite company!

I just got another communication today from the Dixie Heritage Newsletter that mentioned that membership in the KKK is believed to be, nationwide, only about 5,000. And the communication said: “The Democrats really need these guys. Somehow they’ve got to get those numbers up.” In other words, the cultural Marxists need the KKK out there to run interference for them in the streets while they try to scare ordinary folks to death. And one of the articles I read about all this had a big photo of a KKK member, hood, robe, and all, holding a big United States flag. No Confederate flags in sight! That one seems to have slipped by the censors. I’m sure the guy that took that one has by now been informed he’d better not make that mistake again.

Psalm 97:10 says, in part, “Ye that love the Lord, hate evil:” and let’s not kid ourselves. The people that are pushing this cultural Marxist drivel, whatever way they promote it, ARE evil! Understand, I have no use for the KKK. I think they have done a lot of harm, particularly to our Southern heritage. And it is rank injustice to play the “guilt by association” game with everyone on the right by trying to tie them in, somehow, to all the “hate groups” the SPLC claims are out there. Of course, if the SPLC can scare enough people into contributing to their supposed efforts to “combat hate” then that’s cash in their coffers, even if KKK membership is way down–and that’s part of the game, too.

Is The Seed Of The Serpent A Cultural Marxist?

by Al Benson Jr.

Recently I heard a sermon delivered that was quite appropriate, given the times we now live in here in America. The pastor who delivered the sermon started out by saying: “There is a war going on and it began in the Garden of Eden. God declared the war in Genesis 3:15 between His people (“the seed of the woman”) and the followers of Satan (“the seed of the serpent”). History is the record of this holy war. This is the cause of all the conflict we see in the world and in our country. The seed of the serpent hate the Lord and despise His word and thus, hate all those that love the Lord and honor His word.  And there is NO POSSIBILITY OF PEACE between the seed of the woman and the seed of the serpent apart from apostasy or repentance.”

There is much spiritual meat in this observation at many different levels. But one thing stood out to me as I heard this–the utter impossibility of any peace between these groups unless one of them capitulates to the other. It’s as simple as that. They cannot “co-exist” peacefully at any level. Interestingly enough, the cultural Marxist that hates the Lord and His people, seems to understand that far better than most Christians do.

It seems that, in the last 180 years or so, due to horrible theology, most Christians have been bemused into just trying to “be nice” to the whole world and trying not to “offend” anyone. In this we are dead wrong! If we are not offending someone then it’s really questionable if we are even doing anything except trying to keep out of trouble with the people we should be offending. Even a cursory reading of the New Testament shows that Jesus offended lots of people, many of them religious leaders. They finally managed to have Him crucified for His “offenses” against them–His chief offense being that He told them the truth!

Marxists of all stripes seem to understand all this better than most Christians do.Back during the Cold War the doctrinaire economic Marxists used to talk about “peaceful co-existence.” It sounded reasonable and altruistic and the Christians bought into it and they voted for politicians that seemed to buy into it. No one bothered to ask what the Communist definition of “peace” was. They all thought that it was the same as ours. But if you take the trouble to study, even a little, about how the Marxists use language, you will find that their definition  of “peace” is “absence of resistance to Marxism.” Is that your definition? It isn’t mine. So, in the Marxist mindset, you can never really have peace with a communist until you submit to his will, because he will never submit to yours!

With today’s cultural Marxists it is no different. Cultural Marxists are still Marxists and they are in the habit of taking a yard if you give them an inch. They are not about to change, but unfortunately, many Christians have started to change. We have gotten flabby and soft, often with the aid of wolves in sheep’s clothing, and the cultural Marxist will encourage this moral flabbiness, all in the name of “love, diversity, and multi-culturalism ” because he realizes that all this makes us weaker and allows him to be more controlling and demanding. If he can make the Christian feel guilty for standing up for Christian standards and righteousness then he has stolen a march on us. Because, like it or not, we must realize the cultural Marxist is at war with us and all we believe–because his ancestry takes him all the way back to the seed of the serpent. What we have got to start realizing is that, as long as we live, we are at war with him!

The pastor who preached this sermon recommended that Christians should learn to cultivate a “charitable contempt” for the society around us that preaches secular values and entertains cultural Marxists as though they were really somebody special when all they are is modern day anti-Christs. This does not mean that we go out of our way to become objectionable or nasty, or anything along those lines. Rather it means that we make an effort to stand up for the truth of God’s Word as it applies to the society we live in–and for us to do that, even charitably, we must be at war with the cultural Marxist at all times, because the minute we let our guard down he will slip the spiritual (and sometimes literal) knife between the second and third rib and then laugh while we bleed to death. Christians today need to learn this.

Too often we fight one battle with the devil’s disciples and then go home and sit down and think we’ve done our duty and it’s all over. We have to begin to grasp the truth that, in this life,  it is never all over, because it isn’t for the cultural Marxist.

If we properly understand this, then that will explain the intense cultural Marxist attack on Confederate flags and monuments in recent years. Make no mistake, the intense hatred the cultural Marxist has for the South and its history is, ultimately, because that history has a Christian foundation. And the cultural Marxist will not rest until he has utterly destroyed that foundation. And so we cannot afford to rest until we have utterly and completely resisted his efforts to do so, all the while seeking the Lord’s guidance  as to how to do that.

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.
