This is the weekend in January that all Southern history and heritage groups celebrate Lee-Jackson Day. All Southern culture/history/heritage groups across the whole country do this. Even in many places in the North. Lee-Jackson Day, named after two of our most well-known Christian/Confederate generals who both had their birthdays in January is being celebrated tonight with dinners and speakers all across this land. The media won’t tell you about this. You are supposed to believe that, after the tearing down of so many of our historical monuments last year, the Southern Heritage cause is almost no more.
I’m sorry to disappoint you folks over on the cultural Marxist Left, but it ain’t happening. You people have been trying to destroy us and our history for 150 years now and we are still here. And, as one old Southerner once said “We ain’t goin’ easy.”
The real history is, bit by bit, starting to come out. When you have a college professor, as in our last article, telling you that, basically, the socialists won the War of Northern Aggression, you have to realize that people are beginning to find out the truth.
I just reviewed a book by Gene Kizer Jr. entitled Slavery Was Not the Cause of the War Between the States. Lots of Leftist/liberals will poo-poo that and scream about how it is in error. Don’t pay any attention to them. Get the book and read it yourself. You can get it on Amazon.
It’s long past time folks in the South and in other areas started doing the homework and finding out what the War was really all about and today there is lots of really good stuff out there you can get hold of to find out. Fortunately, you are not bound anymore by the “history” books you had in government school. By the same token, folks wanting to find out what really goes on in this country are not bound anymore to check the same old prostitute news media outlets for their information. The alt.right media and the internet have opened up new avenues to get to the real truth. The monopoly the New York Times, the Washington Post and the regular television nitworks used to have on the news is gone and they are less than happy about it.
The same applies to the Southern/Confederate organizations. You’d be surprised at how many Southern patriots now have a grasp of what goes on in this country and how it affects them, their history, and the organizations they belong to. They are learning, and they are learning what they have to do to combat the mainstream media, which is, in its own way, just a dangerous as Soviet spies were during the Cold War (which never really ended by the way).
So, tonight, there are groups all across the country celebrating Lee-Jackson Day, from the Sons of Confederate Veterans to the Confederate Society of America and a whole bunch of others I know almost nothing about, but they are out there anyway–and by their very presence they are telling those Swamp Creatures on the Left as well as in Washington that they intend to persist in their righteous cause, that no matter how many of their monuments you take down, they will put more up and no matter how badly you try to besmirch their noble history, they are not about to quit resisting what you do and that when they see a chance, they will counterattack.
You can march in the streets and tell your Leftist lies about us all you want. When you all get through, we will still be there and we will still fight you with whatever means the Lord allows us. You cultural Marxists are noted for not quitting–neither will we!
