How We Fight Back

by Al Benson Jr.  Member Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Years ago I saw a Western movie about how a big rancher wanted to expand his holdings by driving a smaller rancher off his land and taking it over.  The smaller rancher didn’t boast and bluster about what he would do, he just quietly said “I’d advise you to leave me alone, because you won’t like the way I fight back.” And he didn’t. It eventually cost him his big ranch, lots of lost property, and lots of men.

It seems to me that folks in the Confederate and Southern Patriotic Movement have got to adopt the “you won’t like the way I fight back” mentality; because fight back we must, or our children and grandchildren will have no future worth the name. And when I say that I am not advocating illegal action. You can start looking for lots of legal ways to make our adversaries uncomfortable.

I just read an article that said the removal of the Confederate statues in New Orleans had cost $2.1 million dollars. Who’s going to pay for that? Supposedly, private funds were to be made available for that. Let’s wait and see. I have this sneaky suspicion that, when all is said and done,  the lucky New Orleans taxpayers will end up with most of the tab for this exercise in Cultural Genocide. Compliments of a mayor who wanted to please his black girlfriend!

On June 7th someone sent me an article about Forest Park in St. Louis, Missouri, where they are getting ready to take yet another Confederate monument down. They had barriers up and roads blocked to keep people away, supposedly for “safety.” Maybe they learned something from the protests in New Orleans. And the man that sent me this article wrote one of his own for his email list called More Marxist Socialism in action. That’s a good description. This man realizes what’s going on with this removal of all things Confederate–Marxist socialism! He nailed it! In fact, the more you read about the War and its results, the more you can begin to see that, from a Northern perspective, it was really a grand exercise in Marxist class struggle.

I have just finished recording a 35 minute CD that deals with that and hope to have promotional copies to send out this next week to potential promoters.

This was much more than just a North-South struggle and we must start getting our own folks informed enough so they can get beyond that and take a close look at those involved, especially those Leftist radicals that embraced Lincoln and the Northern cause, as well as the people that financed some of them.

One man who wrote sent a list of suggestions along as to how we should fight back, and some of them were not bad. He noted that we need Confederate flags everywhere and a big one along Highway 70 in St. Louis, NOW.  That’s a good idea. Actually we need Confederate flags along many of our highways in the South–all on private property of some sort; big, beautiful Confederate flags that you can see from a long way off. Several SCV groups have been working on this project in their respective areas and have been successful, as you can tell by the flak they are getting from “progressive” groups like the NAACP and others. The flags go up and suddenly the Leftists want to “dialogue” about it. And we shouldn’t buy into that ploy. Dialogue with those people is the kiss of death for our Movement. Those people have been trying to destroy our culture and heritage for decades now and we are supposed to dialogue with them??? That’s bovine fertilizer, and not even a  very high grade of it! Tel them “thanks, but no thanks. the flags you don’t like stay up, and if we catch you vandalizing them then we will see you in court.”

The same man also wrote (and I agree with him here, too) “We need to expose the rulers of the cities for what they do, and for the results.” If people were really aware of the leftward tilt of some of these city and town council members or some of the mayors of their cities, they might think twice about supporting what some of these people propose in regard to doing away with our heritage. All their chatter about “inclusiveness” and “diversity” is nothing more than a way to shut us out of the process and that’s all it is.  I have read about where some of these people who have wormed their way onto city councils are “community organizers.”  Community organizers are mostly communists who don’t want to go by that name. We just had a president who was a community organizer, remember? I only ever had experience with one other community organizer in my life, and he was what they refer to as “the genuine Communist article.” It’s long time past Southern folks started exposing the Leftist connections of those who want our heritage replaced with their own, and with some form of Leftism that our grandchildren will be forced to swallow.

Some have called for a monument project that celebrates both Western Civilization as well as Confederate heritage, and, while that is not a bad idea, most of us realize that our pockets are not all that deep at this point, but it’s a thought for the future. Right now we need to concentrate on getting more of those Confederate flags up–always on private property, and exposing the real nature and origin of our adversaries, whether we do it in articles, books, billboards, adds, or however, making sure we have solid documentation for what we say about them, and finding ways to get that out to the public at large.

There will be more to come later, but let’s go with this for now–promoting both our flags and the exposure of our Far Left adversaries.

So Where is Mitch Sleeping Tonight?

by Al Benson Jr.

Well, the Confederate monuments are all down in New Orleans and it seems that the political and religious Leftists have gotten their wish. There are some out there that are calling for a boycott of New Orleans and I can’t disagree with them. After what has transpired in that city why should any advocate of Southern heritage and history want to spend a thin dime there? You say “Well, after all, it’s a historical place.” That’s true, but after the cultural Marxists get through with their “social justice” romp throughout the city, how much real history will be left? Not as much as you’d like to think I’m afraid.

One of the main instigators of this historical carnage is the city’s infamous mayor, who pushed to get the Confederate monuments removed because, according to some, it would possibly pave the way for him to a possible presidential slot in 2020. And while that is probably true, or at least a major consideration for him, it seems, if you read between the lines, that there are “other” considerations for him also.

Someone sent me an article from a website called The Hayride,  http://thehayride.com  for May 17th of this year. It was authored by someone called MacAoidh, and I have no idea who that is, but it was an informative article. It dealt in part with the crime going on in New Orleans while the police were occupied watching the Confederate monuments being removed.

The article said, in part: “A city with crime on the level of Chicago should hve its leadership occupied with little else. Instead, New Orleans’ lame-duck mayor, Mitch Landrieu is desperately trying to deface and bowdlerize its cultural patrimony in order to create some sort of legacy he failed to earn through governance.” And that’s correct, but there’s more.

According to the Hayride article: “A Hayride source with knowledge of Landrieu’s private life indicated to us yesterday that the mayor no longer lives at home and has moved in with his mistress, a former communications director for the mayor’s office named Devona Dolliole. and that Ms. Dolliole, who is black, has been a personal influence on Landrieu’s dogged efforts to remove the monuments.” Is anyone surprised? And the former mayor, Moon Landrieu is supposed to be estranged from the current mayor over the campaign to denigrate the Confederate monuments. There is more to the article that I hesitate to get into here because it deals with legal issues regarding Landrieu’s fundraisers.

But at least you can see from this that there was more than one reason that Landrieu was so gung-ho to get those Confederate monuments down. No doubt his present “companion” is pleased  with his efforts, regardless of what those that pay his salary think.

The Elite Meet Today To Decide Our Future

by Al Benson Jr.

The annual meeting of the Bilderbergers for 2017 is being held this year in Chantilly, Virginia from June 1-4. The preliminaries are probably in progress as I write this. There was a time when the Establishment was able to keep these meetings almost totally secret and you couldn’t find out where they were bring held nor who was attending, and those few who did try to find out were hustled off the premises as though they had broken the cardinal law of Elitist Secrecy.

After awhile, though, that ceased to work real well, as some folks in the alternative media always seemed to manage to get in or at least get a list of the attendees and they passed that information out far and wide. And there is nothing wrong with that. When you have semi-secret groups of high mucky mucks meeting to plan the future of the world I think it’s a good thing for the public to be aware of that. The Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission and the Bilderberg Group are the three premier groups in this country that are trying to shuffle us all off into some sort of One World Government–and the more vehemently they deny that the more you’d better believe that some sort of World Government is their real agenda.

However, in their almost infinite wisdom, they have finally come to realize they can’t keep it all totally secret from us, the common herd, and so now they publish a list of attendees at their socialist soirees and hope we don’t recognize too many of the names. However, their discussions about our future remain secret even if the people doing the discussing don’t. For anyone interested in finding out who is attending these bashes you can go to http://www.BilderbergMeetings.org on the Internet and get a list of the Elite that plan how they think the rest of us should live in 2017. There is even a Face Book page out there called Bilderberg 2017 exposed. So all is not secret that they wish to be secret.

It is revealing to look at some of the names of those who will be in Chantilly for this confab. Some names jump out at you, like John O. Brennan, the Muslim convert who was the head of Obama’s CIA. Then there is Lindsey Graham, current U.S. Senator. I imagine there are some folks in his home state that would love to know what he is doing at a Bilderberg meeting. And Henry Kissinger is always at these things as one of the prime movers and shakers promoting One World Government. Then there is Terry McAuliffe, the Governor of Virginia. And H. R. McMaster, Mr. Trump’s National Security Adviser, and Peggy Noonan, author and columnist for the Wall Street Journal. Also attending is Wilbur Ross Jr., Mr. Trump’s Secretary of Commerce, as well as Nadia Schadlow, Deputy Assistant to the President, National Security Council, and Peter Thiel, who has been involved with the Trump administration. There is even a You Tube video out there called Will Donald Trump be at the 2017 Bilderberg?  I most assuredly hope he won’t, but it seems that several people in his administration will be. Not good news! These people represent a worldview that is supposedly anathema to that of Mr. Trump, and if that is really the case, then Mr. Trump has a bigger problem than even he realizes. Some in his administration are definitely advocates of One World Government in some form and if he is ever to accomplish what he says he wants to do he is going to have to find some way to remove those people and replace them with people that share his vision. His administration has been infiltrated by advocates of One World Government–and he needs to be aware of that if he isn’t.

Some of the topics that will be under discussion this year will be: The Trump Administration–a progress report; Can Globalisation be slowed down?; The War on Information (I bet that will be a dandy); and Why is Populism growing? Then there will be a discussion on Current Events, which I assume may be some kind of catch-all for everything they failed to cover with the other topics.

Many of those attending this conference display the fact that the Trump administration has lots of “swamp draining” to do if ever they plan on making lasting changes beneficial to the American people, because he has lots of people in his White House right now who have a vested interest in preserving the status quo and not changing anything that will help anyone but them and their leftist friends.

Segregated Integration

by Al Benson Jr.

Over fifty years ago this country was subjected to something called a “civil rights movement” supposedly because schools, restaurants and drinking fountains in the South were segregated. We were all dutifully informed by a compliant media that this was evil and “racist.”  Blacks and whites were not able to go to the same schools or use the same showers or whatever. The “civil rights movement” in our day has progressed to the point where boys calling themselves girls are now permitted in ladies bathrooms around the country. You can see we’ve come a long way–but in which direction? But back in the 1950s and 60s segregation was supposed to be evil and “racist” and so it had to be turned around, resisted, and gotten rid of, so we were told.

Having read a little about the “civil rights movement” over the years,  I was concerned that many of those involved seemed to spring almost unbidden from the far left part of the political spectrum, including many of the most well-known among them. Now, before the steam starts coming out of your ears, I am not saying that everyone in the civil rights movement was a communist (although it had its share). There were a lot of good people that got involved in it because of what they perceived as an injustice and who probably had no clue as to the leftward tilt of some of the leaders of the movement. And these good folks were used as window dressing to cover the activities of the more leftist-oriented in their ranks.

If you want a good expose’ of the civil rights movement, and one of the earliest, I would recommend a book by Alan Stang called It’s Very Simple–The true story of civil rights. Mr. Stang, now deceased, was an investigative reporter par excellence,  and dug into a  lot of stories over the years that most “investigative” reporters felt it was better, for the sake of their careers, to just leave alone. Alan’s book gives you some excellent observations on the civil rights movement and its leading luminaries . I believe it might still be available on Amazon.

Another good source is a book by Kent Steffgen called The Bondage of the Free–An examination of the civil rights movement. It was originally published in 1966 and reprinted in 2009 by The Institute for Southern Historical Review in Dahlonega, Georgia. You might try to see if it’s still available on Amazon. Both of these books give you a perspective on this movement you will never get on your evening newscast.

With the aid of the journalistic and political left the civil rights movement was finally able to get the courts and politicians to do away with segregation and integration became the law of the land, with open displays of black students being escorted to public schools to be integrated there by police, and we were treated to pictures of James Meredith being escorted to the University of Mississippi by the police, and the call was ever and anon for complete integration. Blacks were not supposed to be kept out of anyplace and whites were taught to be inclusive–or else!

So time has passed and we have now had several decades of forced integration where everybody gets thrown in with everybody else by federal edict. And at this point, if you are going to ask me if I have objections about sitting next to a black family in a restaurant, I don’t. I have had black friends over the years and, as Christians, we have often sat together and broke bread. But that has been our choice, not the government’s.

However, now that integration has been achieved, I have noticed a rather disturbing trend among many blacks, especially at the college level. Now that they have been thoroughly integrated into society, they have decided they are not sure that’s what they really want, they don’t seem to feel “safe” there, and so we are starting to see articles in the managed media about various colleges where blacks are demanding “no whites allowed space.” I guess you could call this segregated space away from white students. They wouldn’t use that term; they call it “safe” space, but what it amounts to, really, is segregated space.

An article I read on http://www.thecollegefix.com for January 6, 2016, written by Alec Dent–UNC Chapel Hill (North Carolina) said: “Black college students across the country have demanded that they be segregated from white peers,  calling for ‘safe spaces’ on campuses meant only for so-called students of color.” Some might look at that and consider it anti-white discrimination, but then, whites are the one group you can openly discriminate against and get away with it anymore. In fact it’s open season on them!

Demands for this sort of thing have been proliferating on campuses all across the country, with “local” university groups drawing up demands (many of which sound eerily similar to one another) “Underscoring that, students tend t hang out with similar students automatically…” Heavens to Abigail, some of us could have told them that fifty years ago when they were so busy trying to “integrate” all of us. They’ve finally discovered that amazing truth–and it only took them half a century! Man, that’s real progress! Maybe there’s hope for the “intellectuals” after all (but not much).

The article noted that this is going on at Oberlin College, at Scripps and Pomona colleges, and there have been others. One article I dug up mentioned the same thing at the University of Michigan. Another mentioned the University of Colorado at Boulder, and yet another mentioned American University. An article from http://www.frontpagemag.com for May 17, 2017, by Daniel Greenfield, noted that: “No whites allowed in college cafe due to black student demands.” Mr. Greenfield observed, quite astutely, that “Anti-racism is the new racism. Safe spaces are the new segregation.” He’s right on the money.

And so, the “civil rights movement”  has now “evolved” from integration with whites to reverse racism that excludes whites.

Knowing how these agendas from the left work, one can only wonder how long it will be before some brilliant leftist black professor in some college out on the Left Coast will “discover” that blacks and whites are not associating with one another as he would like and he will claim it’s all the fault of “white privilege” and so it will be time for a whole new “civil rights” crusade to begin.

Do you begin to get the feeling that we have all partaken of the scam before and in the next decade or so, we will be treated to a repeat performance?

Lew Rockwell on Confederate Statues

by Al Benson Jr.

I read an interesting little blip on http://www.lewrockwell.com this morning, May 19th. It seems that the cultural Marxist Regime in New Orleans is to take down the statue of General Lee on this day. Mr. Rocklwell’s headline said New Orleans would “dismantle” the Lee statue. To me that’s a nice way of saying they are going to break it up, but then I’ve been known on rare occasions, to have a suspicious mind, so I could be wrong.

I will quote Lew Rockwell here so you all can see what he said: “But the disgusted may have a remedy: commission Confederate statues, or buy the discarded, and display them on private property.  In the South, far away from decaying federal encampments like New Orleans.  Create an educational park about secession, Lincoln’s invasion, and all related issues, featuring a first-class museum, library, courses, films, resident scholars, and more. Tell the truth. It would draw international attention.”

Such would be a positive response to all the negative fertilizer we hear about the monuments and our flags. I have read about and noticed across the South, that local SCV groups and others have been buying little chunks of private property, some of them not any bigger than my carport at home, and they have been raising big, big Confederate flags on them–flagpoles 100 feet high with flags 30-50 feet long. This is much to the chagrin of local cultural Marxist excuses for politicians who can’t do anything about them because the are on private property. That is the same principle that Lew Rockwell is talking about here.

I realize such endeavors would take a good bit of money, but it might be something area Confederate groups could begin to work toward as worthwhile projects. And if private property could be purchased in some areas from sympathetic property owners then efforts along these lines could be started on a modest scale and could grow as funds became more available.

My wife and I have friends over near Laurel, Mississippi that have what they call a “little home lending library”  from which they loan books out to local folks who are interested in various subjects. Why couldn’t something like that be done in regard to Southern and Confederate history and heritage? What you would need is a not-too-big piece of private property where you could put up a small building. Our friends’ home lending library is not huge by any means, it’s probably a little bigger than our kitchen at home, and we don’t have a big kitchen. Yet they have managed to get books, many from his personal library, about theology, history, politics, and other subjects of general interest. If we could just learn to start thinking along these lines we might be able to come up with lots of possibilities that could be done locally by a few dedicated people, and they would not have to be as big as the Smithsonian Institute–and most assuredly not as politically correct.

A final question–who owns the “dismantled” statue of General Lee?  Does the city of New Orleans own these statues and what will they do with them once they are all down? There might be various answers to that question depending where in the South you happen to be.

I have been told that the beautiful Confederate monument next to the courthouse in Caddo Parish in Shreveport is on private property and that the statue belongs to the United Daughters of the Confederacy.  I don’t know authoritatively, so maybe someone can fill me in. That may well be true, otherwise the cultural Marxists in Shreveport would already have been there with the wrecking crew, with masks on, at midnight, with police snipers posted on the courthouse, ready to take it down. They’ll probably still try to do that if they can get by with it–legal, illegal, or otherwise.

Somehow, we have got to start thinking along the lines of finding good places for those statues and monuments we may be able to rescue so that we can make sure they are put back up someplace that we have control over rather than some city with weaseling politicians.

Please pray about this, and talk to others who may have similar concerns and there may be things those who want to preserve their culture can do in some areas to blunt the attacks of the cultural Marxists. After all, if the city council of East Overshoe votes to take down the local Confederate monument, only to see it back up in someone’s pasture five miles outside of town in a couple or three months where it can still be seen, what have they gained in the long run except a good chance of being booted out of office in the next election?

“Hey, Hey, Ho, Ho” Cultural Marxist Doublespeak

by Al Benson Jr.

According to http://www.nola.com for May 4th, the Joan of Arc statue on Decatur Street in New Orleans had the phrase Tear it Down sprayed in black paint on its base. The nature of the spray paint job has been thought by some to relate to the ongoing cultural Marxist purge of all things Confederate currently in progress there. Of course there is always the possibility that those who are attacking Confederate heritage don’t even realize that Joan of Arc lived in France in the 15th century and had nothing at all to do with the War of Northern Aggression.

The web article noted here stated: “But the statue of Joan of Arc, a 15th century military leader, martyr and Catholic saint, hasn’t been mentioned in the controversy to this point.” The key words in this sentence are “to this point.” Remember that!

The writer of the article said: “There is no connection between the “Tear it Down” tag and the Take Em Down NOLA organization, one of its leaders said…Malcolm Suber said TED members had nothing to do with the graffiti.”  “Joan of Arc is not on our radar,” Suber said. Well, not yet anyway. But didn’t these same people want the Andrew Jackson statue removed also? Or was that a supposedly “separate” group of cultural Marxists? The groups seem to proliferate so fast it gets hard after awhile to keep track of who wants what torn down. Andy Jackson didn’t have anything to do with the War of Northern Aggression either. He died 15 years before it started. But the folks that wanted (and still want) Jackson’s statue removed claimed taking his statue down would be a major stroke against “white supremacy.” So why wouldn’t the identical critique apply to Joan of Arc? After all, she was white and Christian and, in all honesty, folks, nowadays that’s the only criteria need to be branded as a white supremacist. If you read what some of these rather odd college professors today are spouting, you realize that, in their convoluted thinking, anyone born white is automatically a flaming racist and white supremacist–except them naturally. Somehow they seem to have escaped that malignancy that the entire rest of the white race is afflicted with. Either that or in their traitorous sellout of their race they feel they are exercising the  proper repentance for having been born white.

So you will have to pardon me if I can’t quite buy the collegiate swill they sprinkle over our kids while we pay big bucks to let them do it. Sure they hate Confederate flags, symbols, monuments, etc. But these people hate anything white and/or Christian.

When they holler “Hey, Hey, Ho, Ho, Western Civ. has got to go” what they are really saying is that white, Christian civilization needs to be gotten rid of. That is their ultimate target. The fact that many of them from overseas would still be living in grass huts somewhere, were it not for Christian civilization,  seems to escape them. Without western Christian civilization they would not be here and would not have the opportunity to get foundation money to carry on their anti-white war games.

As far as “racism” goes, the old saying applies–“it takes one to know one.”

They all want to celebrate their cultures while destroying ours, and those white folks that feel guilty about being white and are willing to go along with this ethnic cleansing of their own race are not even up to the level of being reprehensible.

The whole cultural Marxist agenda is about the destruction of western, Christian civilization. Give those people the chance and that is what they will do to you. What do you tell your children then–when they ask you why didn’t you stand up and do something? You need to begin to realize where these people are coming from. Sure they want to demolish Confederate and Southern culture. That’s the first step. And you folks who won’t stand up and help us defend our Confederate heritage will one day find that, when the cultural Marxists have gotten rid of us, they will come after you–and there won’t be anyone left to help you. What will you do then???

President Mitch or President Chelsea?

by Al Benson Jr.

The High Priesthood of the church of the New World Order is busily working toward some kind of consensus as to who they want to be our next president. It will probably be someone we would not want, but that’s totally immaterial. Their anointed candidate in 2016 blew it, for which she graciously blamed James Comey of the FBI and Wickileaks. This is a prime example of the revolution “eating its own.” And it usually couldn’t happen to nicer people. The French and Bolshevik Revolutions are other prime examples of this.

The only way the New World Order will dare leave Donald Trump in office is if they can find a way to totally co-opt his administration so that he, in effect, becomes a mere figurehead like Bush, Obama, Slick Willie, or Gerald Ford, or any of the other candidates that ran in the last election, with the exception of Rand Paul. They may co-opt Trump through his son-in-law Jared Kushner, who as it now seems to be turning out, has ties to George Soros. You don’t have to take my word for this. Check out http://www.infowars.com or other websites on the Internet. If they can get at Trump through his family they will, to all intents and purposes, neuter him and relegate him to the same position held by Ronald Reagan, where the conservatives got all the talk but the liberals got all the action. If you think that wasn’t where Reagan was really at, you can find photos of him on the Internet schmoozing with Henry Kissinger–two good ol’ boys if ever you saw them!

But whatever plans the High Priesthood has for the Republicans (and they always have operatives in both major parties) they definitely continue to work with the Demoncrats (ooops, slip of the finger, I meant Democrats), because the Democrats are so openly far to the Left that the High Priesthood can’t help loving them.

I just read an article on May 2nd on http://www.wwl.com that said: “A New York Times report names New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu as a potential 2020 presidential contender.”  The article continued: “Landrieu is gaining national attention over the removal of four confederate-era monuments in New Orleans.  DuBos (political analyst Clancy DuBos) says there’s speculation the monument controversy is a political move by the mayor to gain recognition around the country. ‘If he decides to do something on the national level, that will be part of his brand, and it will probably play well in the Democratic Party outside the Deep South,’ DuBos said.” So, just maybe there’s a chance that Mary’s brother will look forward to advancing his political career at the expense of Confederate cultural heritage and history. He may be willing to climb his way to the pinnacle of the political stars on the rubble left by the monuments to Lee, Beauregard, and Jeff Davis. Such action would surely endear him to the hearts of faux “Southerners” of the stripe of Nikki Haley, Lindsey Graham, and others who, even though many of them have maintained some semblance of their regional dialects, are still thoroughgoing Yankee/Marxists! All of this would be thoroughly in keeping with the religious practices of cultural Marxism and American Talibanism.

There is even some speculation that Hitlery’s daughter, Chelsea, might be getting groomed for a shot at the presidency. Now wouldn’t that be a stick in the eye!

With candidates like Mary’s brother and Hitlery’s daughter running for the Democrats, one has to wonder who the Republicans would oppose them with–Dracula maybe?

The exalted High Priests of New World Order religion have big plans for our future and the futures of our grandchildren, and I’d be wiling to bet most of us won’t be overly enthralled with them. Hunkering down and just hoping these disciples of Beelzebub  won’t notice you ain’t gonna do it. You need to shut your smart phones and smart TV’s off (because they can hear what you’re saying with them on) and you need, first of all, to pray, search the Scriptures, and from that you begin to learn the art of exposure and resistance.
