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

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Coups And Questions

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Puppets Pulling Strings For Other Puppets

by Al Benson Jr.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Part Four–Why Our Kids Never Went To Public School

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

The reactions to our decision to home school our kids were fairly quick and followed certain patterns. A couple of folks decided that, as long as we were going to do this, they could help us out by giving us lists of books we should get and make sure our kids read. I recall two such lists, if I remember correctly. I did look over the lists to see what they had.

Interestingly enough, one of the books near the top of both lists was Catcher in the Rye. When I had worked at a college back in the East, many of the kids I knew there had that one as required reading, so I had a chance back then to browse through it on several occasions. Now maybe it’s just that I am old fashioned, but my first reaction to seeing that on both lists was “I don’t want our kids reading that!” Maybe some of you all have read that one and don’t think it was as questionable as I did. There were several other offerings on both lists that I frowned at. There wasn’t an awful lot on either list that I wanted our kids messing with. Now our kids were both readers and we bought them books when we could afford to and they read and reread many of them until the covers literally fell off them. We bought them C. S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia series and they read those until they were literally falling apart. I realize some folks disagree with some of Lewis’ materials, but it was a lot better than some of what was out there. Anyway, the book lists were a flop.

Later on, after that, (and I didn’t find this out until our kids were grown and our son told it to me), some of the ladies from the church pulled him aside one day and asked him if he wouldn’t really rather go to a public school than to have to learn at  home. I assume they were trying to get him to persuade us to put the kids in the local government schools. That didn’t work either. My son told them that if he had to end up in a public school, he would just quit. At that point he was 16 and, therefore, old enough to do that.

In retrospect, that bothered me a little. My wife and I had made certain decisions that we felt were best for our children and they were trying to “rearrange” those decisions to what they thought was best.

So, with those two agendas not working, the next project was to send the pastor out to talk to us and talk us into doing what many, if not most, in the church figured we should do. You see. some of these folks had a problem with the fact that neither my wife nor I had a college degree, and in their minds you couldn’t do anything without a college degree, preferably several, with a whole batch of letters strung out after your name. I don’t think they felt we were stupid–it was just that we were ignorant and didn’t know what we didn’t know. I had tried to tell some of them who didn’t know what the government schools in West Virginia and other places were doing and they didn’t want to know that. So I guess that made us even!

Understand, when I say all this, these were not bad people. I think some of them had a genuine concern, but their worldview was not our worldview and they never could quite grasp where we were coming from. All they knew was that much of it turned them off and part of their solution to our situation was to try to make our kids as much like theirs as possible.

Anyway, the pastor came out one evening (his kids were in government schools which he thought were just great). And he was going to talk us into “doing the right thing” for our kids. So he gave us all his reasons why he thought the government schools were the only way to go with our kids and they would probably grow up culturally deprived if they couldn’t attend them.

After he had completed his recitation, I said to him, “You’ve told us all the reasons you think we should put our kids in public school and now I’m going to tell you all the reasons we are not going to do that.” And I had a list of reasons, not on paper, but in my head and so I started telling him what we knew about government education and our problems with it. When I got through, he said to me “You’ve thought this through pretty well haven’t you?” I assured him we had, which was no lie, and then he said to me (and I have never forgotten this) “In light of what you have just told me, what I am suggesting to you must sound like blasphemy.” To which I replied “You’re getting pretty close.” I guess I had made our point, either that or they all thought we were totally hopeless, I don’t know which, because no one at church ever mentioned the education question to us again. From the pastor on down, they just dropped it.

And although this incident I am about to mention doesn’t have specifically to do with our kids’ education, I mention it anyway, because it is an educational issue. I had been asked to teach a Sunday School class, and there was a lot of “safe” material out there that I could have used that would have threatened or challenged no one. However, I chose to try to teach a class about secular humanism. They all professed to be “agin it” but most of them knew little about it or how it had infiltrated the churches.

This came up because I had previously taught a one session class about this and quoted extensively from The Humanist Manifesto 2, which they were obviously unfamiliar with. At the end of that class, one lady asked me if what I had used was John Birch material. I told her “I didn’t use any John Birch material.  What I gave  you today was right from the Humanist Manifesto 2. What I gave you was right from the horse’s mouth.” They were astonished, they didn’t have a clue.

Anyway, I don’t know for sure, but I think that may have had something to do with my getting the invitation to do the Sunday School class. In order to have something for them to go by, I bought a book from the local Bible book store about secular humanism and showed it to the pastor.  He took it, showed it to some others, whether it was the elders or not I don’t know, but then he came back and told me some folks had problems with some of what was in the book. So he hemmed and hawed about it and so I just asked him up front, seeing that there were problems with parts of the book “Would you rather I just didn’t do this?” I figured if the book was too rich for them, that gave them an out, but I wasn’t planning on teaching something that made folks feel good. There isn’t much education or challenge in “feeling good.” They could get someone else for that.

The pastor came back in a week or so and said to go ahead and use the book. So I did, and I prepared a lesson for the first week and typed up a batch of material, both from the book and other sources, on secular humanism I had or borrowed. Every week that I did the class, which I think lasted for 3 months or so, I had a batch of reference material to hand out to everyone in the class so they had something on paper to take home with them and look over (I hoped).

But even though they finally agreed to let me do the class, there were still obvious reservations–to the point where they printed a disclaimer in the church bulletin each Sunday letting the congregation know the church probably didn’t endorse everything in the book, so anyone who took the class did so at their own risk.

Interestingly enough, the class was packed–all kinds of people from the elders and deacons on down. I have never been sure if all those folks sat in because of what they could learn or if they were there to make sure I didn’t go too far off what they considered was the deep end.

Part Two–Why our kids never went to public school

by Al Benson Jr.

Regarding the situation in Kanawha County, West Virginia from 1974-76, I have several observations that were clinchers for my wife and I as to why our kids would never cross the threshold of a government school building.

While in West Virginia, my brother and I attended quite a few school board meetings  for Kanawha County, which were held in Charleston. Any time we were able to go, the school board meetings always ended up being “standing room only” affairs. If you wanted a seat you got there early. People, once the textbook protest started, showed up for school board meetings because they felt it was a chance to express their frustration at what the school system was trying for force on their kids. Little did they realize at the time, to paraphrase a saying used during the global warming scam, “the agenda is already settled.” And some of the school board members that spoke at these meetings were, shall we say,  slightly less than candid.  You always got straight, honest answers from Alice Moore. From some of the others it was a toss-up.

There was one meeting I recall, where one of the board members got caught in an untruth, and was called on it right during the meeting. He just laughed it off and continued on with whatever charade he was trying to peddle. At another meeting,  one of the parents attempted to read a passage out of her daughter’s 8th grade literature book. She hadn’t gotten very far into it when the moderator informed her that “You can’t read that in a public meeting!” To which the quick-thinking mom replied “If I can’t read this in a public meeting then why is it required reading in my daughter’s eighth grade class?” Excellent question! No answer was forthcoming. It seems the content of the book  was so profane it could not be read in a public meeting but apparently it was not too profane to be read in an eighth grade literature class. Does that give you just a slight idea of where the government school system was (and still is)?

As an aside–I noted how full the school board meetings always seemed to be. In the town I live in now, when I was in better health, I used to go to the town council meetings regularly. Usually there was hardly anyone there. The only time anyone ever showed up was when citizenship awards were handed out to kids in the local government schools–and after that was done, parents and kids all departed, not bothering to stay for the rest of the meeting. I often wondered if it was just apathy or what. I reflected on that a bit–until a particular issue came up in town a couple or three years ago, which involved a referendum the townfolk had to vote on. The referendum passed–but only by 11 votes, which, to me reflected a basically split town. After that event I started looking at non-attendance at council meetings from a different perspective. It came to me why no one hardly ever went to town council meetings. Those who were satisfied with the status quo in town didn’t need to be bothered going. They were going to get what they wanted anyway. Those who were not had realized that no one was going to listen to them anyway. They had already been to meetings to express their feelings and the town council, from the mayor on down, didn’t seem to want to hear it–so why bother.  As in Kanawha County, West Virginia–“the agenda was already settled.” This all exhibited one thing to me.  Beyond a certain point, many just get fed up with trying. That doesn’t necessarily mean they are happy–and the discontent over not being heard will break out somewhere, at some time, just like it did in Kanawha County, West Virginia when it became entirely clear that the school board already had an agenda they were going to pursue and they were not about to let the parents’ wishes get in their way. After all, all the parents did was to furnish the kids for the government school’s noble experiments in humanism and pay for it all! Why should anyone have to have any regard for what they wanted?

I noticed something else in West Virginia (this event was a pivotal point in our lives) about the book protest. It was the fundamentalist Christians that seemed to be the most concerned about the raunchy stuff in the proposed textbooks. Folks in liberal (socialist) churches  seemed, in the main, to have no problem with the secular humanist content of the books. Folks in most of the evangelical churches basically just sat the protest out. I’m not sure what they believed about the books, but whatever it was, it didn’t reach them enough to get them mad enough to go out and try to do anything about them. To me, that was a sad situation, but it was not the last time I was to see such a situation.

I am not a fundamentalist Christian (and I don’t say that to knock them by any means). I am a Presbyterian Calvinist, yet I saw major problems with these books, and with the concept of a government-run education system that sought to undermine the values Christian parents taught their children. In that instance, the fundamentalists and I were on the same page.  Again, I reflected on all this and wondered why the evangelicals just sat this protest out, given the stakes involved regarding their children. It wasn’t until we left West Virginia and moved to Indiana and attended an evangelical Presbyterian church there that I got my answer.

Antifa a no-show at Gettysburg on 7/1

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Well, the anticipated protests and monument desecration at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania on July 1, 2017 proved to be a flash in the pan. Of course Antifa claimed they never planned to show up and create any problems to begin with, but who knows if that’s the truth or not? They pulled the same stunt in Marietta, Georgia a few months ago, so maybe they are getting their kicks out of saying they will be where they won’t be to see what reaction they get.

There was a heavy police presence in Gettysburg on July 1st and it was rumored that some of the SCV Mechanized Cavalry were going to be on hand also. One article I read noted that only a handful of pro-Confederate protesters showed up to combat any Antifa “activities” should they occur.

I can’t say for sure, but I’d be willing to bet that Antifa looked at the whole entire situation and decided it might be better off for them if they passed on this one. They were probably not going to have the same situation they recently had in New Orleans where the mayor was sympathetic to them and told the cops to let them alone. It seems that some of their leadership may have a pretty fair country instinct as to where they can go and get by with their shenanigans and where they might go that would get them hurt if they push too hard–and these folks really don’t want to get hurt. I don’t know if those that finance their hooliganism won’t pay for hospital bills or what, but they seem to be like so many others on the Left, they don’t mind inflicting pain on others but they’d rather not bleed themselves.

And just because they said they didn’t plan this or that event is no reason to accept their word. In describing socialists, progressives” and others of that ilk, Ron Kennedy noted in his recent book Dixie Rising–Rules for Rebels that “They have no moral compunction to be truthful especially when dealing with Southern conservatives. As far as liberals are concerned, telling slanderous falsehoods about the South is virtuous (morally right from their humanist point of view) if it advances the liberal’s ‘social justice’ agenda. They show us no respect; therefore it would be both foolish and dangerous for us to show respect for their left-wing ideas.” And Antifa is most definitely a “social justice” organization. Therefore, whatever they tell you has to be taken with a very large grain of salt.

Whether they will even show up at Gettysburg or not over the weekend will have to be seen. But you can rest assured they ain’t going away and if you don’t see them sooner then you will see them later–wherever they figure they can protest with no pain and promote their Leftist agenda. Even the name of their organization is a charade. If anyone is fascist it is them.

Remember this folks, it is all part of “reconstruction” like the public school system, and “reconstruction” is ongoing!

A short update on July 3, 2017–Homeland Security in New Jersey has just listed Antifa as a domestic terrorist organization due to their attacks on supporters of President Trump around the country. I sure have not always agreed with Homeland Security on lots of things, but this time they got it right.

Cultural Marxist Richmond Mayor Caves In–Did you honestly expect anything different?

by Al Benson Jr.

Member Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Just last evening I received an article from the Virginia Flaggers which illustrated our continuing problem with cultural Marxism this year in the South.

The article stated, in part, that: “Following the lead of disgraced New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, Mayor Levar Stoney has chosen to tow the PC line of the NAACP and SPLC, who have supported the false narrative that our monuments and memorials are somehow tied to ‘racism, slavery, Jim Crow, and white supremacy.’ This false narrative has gained traction with the left, who has successfully used it to convince politicians to take  up their cause of attempting to remove every trace of the Confederacy from public view. Mr. Stoney appears to have caved to their pressure.”

The article went on to note the overwhelming support of the vast majority of citizens in Virginia who just want their monuments left alone. But let’s face it, folks, that is not going to happen because that does not suit the agenda of the Far Left. The article said that the fake narrative of what the monuments are all about “gained traction” with the Left. From what I have read and seen over the last thirty years or so, the false narrative about our monuments and flags was originated by the Left. They didn’t just happen to latch onto it as it moved on by–they started the movement to begin with. Let us not hesitate to give credit where it is due!

With all this in mind, I did a little digging to see if I could find out where Mayor Stoney was coming from prior to his being elected as Mayor of  Richmond, Virginia. It wasn’t that hard to find and it turned out to be pretty much what I expected.

Turns out that Stoney worked as an organizer for the 2004 campaign of John Kerry. According to Wikipedia ” In 2004  Stoney traveled to Wisconsin to work with the local Democratic Party in a ‘get out the vote’ effort. Five of his colleagues would later be charged with slashing the tires of a van meant to be used to drive Republican voters to the polls. Stoney initially lied to police claiming he had no knowledge of the incident. He would later admit to FBI investigators that he was present in the Democratic campaign offices after his colleagues came in to brag about slashing the tires.  Stoney then went on to testify against his colleagues…After questioning during a committee meeting with Virginia Republican lawmakers about his indiscretion, it was accepted as ‘an isolated, youthful mistake’.” It may have been a mistake, but let’s don’t kid ourselves, Mayor Stoney, as his background shows,  is a cultural Marxist. Later he worked for the Democratic Party of Virginia for three years, where he ended up being the Executive Director. In that capacity he worked handily with Barack Obama’s presidential campaign back in 2008.

He won his mayorship in Richmond against seven other candidates–with 35% of the vote. Hardly a landslide!

He can’t take Richmond’s Confederate monuments down–there is a law in Virginia that prevents that. So as long as he is unable to remove them, he will declare his cultural Marxist jihad against them in another way–under the guise of presenting “context” about the monuments, he will issue disingenuous prevarications regarding them. In other words, whatever “context” will, in the future, be presented regarding Confederate monuments, it will, shall we say, be slightly less than accurate. If we understand (and we should be learning by now) how the cultural Marxists operate, this should not surprise us in the least. It would be worthwhile, if somehow it could be done, for there to be opposing contexts presented about the monuments so that people viewing them would have both sides of the story and thus be able to make up their own minds. However, the Left is not about presenting any side but its own. For them there is no other side!

We have to realize (which we should have done before now) that the cultural Marxists and those who finance them are never going to cease and desist. The total destruction of Southern and Christian culture is a major part of their program, and so our resistance to what they do must be ongoing.

Finding private property to erect our monuments and fly our flags should end up being a major priority for us. It may not be easy, but somehow we are going to have to do it. To quit fighting those people is to turn your grandchildren’s futures over to the cultural Marxists, and I don’t know about you, but such a solution for my grandchildren is morally reprehensible to me. Even worse, it would be immoral for us to settle for that.

My wife and I usually do a short devotion from the Scriptures in the evening after supper, something from the Old Testament and then something from the New Testament. Last evening the New Testament part of our reading was from Luke, chapter 4, having to do with the devil tempting Jesus in the wilderness. It ended with verse 13, which said: “And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season.” I don’t think it violates Scripture to believe that this session in the wilderness was not the last time Satan sought to tempt, pressure and persecute Jesus. There would be other times down the road, we just aren’t told about them. The point here being that the devil didn’t give up or quit, even though Jesus defeated him in the end, he didn’t quit. After reading that, the thought crossed my mind that “the devil was a cultural Marxist, ” or even more accurately you could say that he was the father of cultural Marxism.
