Another Anti-Southern Hit Piece?

by Al Benson Jr.

Member,, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Usually I try to avoid as much of the so-called “news” put out by the Fake News Empire as I can. Most of what comes out of the swamp in Washington these days has the potential of making one physically ill if one is exposed to too much of it.

But there are times when we are forced to look at some of it. I came across an article on https://www.msn.com just last evening, July 15th, that I felt needed to be checked out. The article started out with a picture of one lone man, in what looked like the Capitol Building in Washington, carrying a Confederate flag. My first thought was “well, here is another article that will seek to portray the South and its people as evil and domestic terrorists because most of us didn’t hold our noses and vote for Biden.”

And while I still think that was the main intent, I noted that the article went on to quote from a recent poll by an outfit called https://brightlinewatch.org which was of interest. It noted that 65% of Republicans in the South and 43% of Republicans in the Rocky Mountain states would be in favor of secession. News Week carried the same article https://www.newsweek.com and noted that “A 66% majority of Republicans in 13 Southern states including Texas and Florida are in favor of seceding from the union, according to a poll released Wednesday by Bright Line Watch. Half of all independents in the South agreed, while only 20% of Southern Democrats were on board.” The article also noted that “…43% of Republicans in states near the Rocky Mountains said the same.”

An article on https://mises.org for February 19th of this year noted a similar poll back at that time that said 50% of Republicans in the South supported the idea of secession. If the Mises Institute article is correct, and I have no reason to doubt them, that means Southern Republican support for secession has increased by 15 points since February.

Given the fact that the results of the 2020 election are, shall we say, highly suspect, then the reason for the increase for Southern and Western secession is not hard to figure out. To put it bluntly, most Southern and Western Republicans feel they were screwed in the last election. That’s one reason you have so many states now doing audits. And the fact that you have the Democrats moving heaven and earth to try to prevent those audits tells you something about the results of the last election. As Patrick Henry, another Southerner, once said “I smell a rat.”

Most Southern folks do not feel they will get a fair shake from the current Regime. I know I don’t. The current Regime seems bound and determined to undercut and remove the God-given liberties Americans possess, North, South, East or West. The Democrats, and even some Republicans are okay with that, which means that, at heart, they are potential dictators.

Such people do not hesitate to try to go beyond the law in their quest for power and control.
And if they can succeed in making both the South and West look bad in the bargain, so much the better for them–but not for us. These people need to be lawfully resisted and exposed for the would-be communists that they are.

As far as the secession question goes. I would recommend a short book by Ron Kennedy, published by Scuppernong Press called Red State Red County Secession–Creating a Nation of our Own. It will definitely give you some food for thought on the secession question and on the issue of nullification as well.

Schools or Indoctrination Centers? The Answer Should be Obvious

by Al Benson Jr.

As time goes on we are learning more and more about how public schools are pushing this Marxist oriented Critical Race Theory garbage. And I call it garbage because that is what it is The agenda for this is to cause hate and division between the races so they will never be able to come together and realize who their real enemies are and what those enemies are doing to all races.

The fact that those enemies are able to use the public schools in this country to promote their leftist propaganda should show people who really controls the public schools in this country. And I am not going to advocate that we get in there and fight to take “our” public schools back. That has been tried and it is an exercise in futility. The public schools were never, and I mean never, ours to begin with. They have always belonged to the enemies of the Lord Jesus Christ, right from day one!

Oh, I know lots of you don’t want to hear that. Your dear old Aunt Bessie taught in them for years and she never found any problem with them. Now I am not attacking Aunt Bessie’s sincerity but I do question her discernment and the discernment of those Christians who think like she does. And believe me, I have known lots of them. When my wife and I decided to homeschool our children, lo these many years ago now, we got more opposition from the Christians than we did from the world. Those Christians wanted us to put our kids in the local public school and they were quite disappointed when we refused to do that.

Their discernment in this critical area had been tampered with and they unknowingly came down on the side of the Lord’s enemies. After spending two years in Kanawha County, West Virginia during the textbook protest there in the mid-1970s I became convinced that the public school system does not exist to educate. It exists to indoctrinate our children in leftist values. I have never had cause to change my mind on this issue. In fact what I see going on in public schools today more and more bears out my original contentions.

I just read an article on https://www.thegatewaypundit.com for July 9th by Julian Conradson which stated, in part: “Investigative journalist and Critical Race Theory opponent Chris Rufo has identified over 30 school districts across 15 different states that are teaching the radical anti-whiteness book Not My Idea by Anastasis Higgenbotham….The book teaches children to primarily identify by their skin color while it paints white children as evil, saying: “Whiteness is a bad deal. It always was…Another page says “Racism is a white person’s problem and we are all caught up in it.” This is an absolute croc. Whatever “racism” exists in this world is a human problem not just a white problem and to teach kids this stuff is to lie to them and do them a grave injustice .Christopher Rufo notes that this book is meant for youngsters as young as kindergarten and it “traffics in the noxious principles of race essentialism, collective guilt, and anti-whiteness.’ Rufo has noted that “Critical race theory is driving public education–and must be stopped.”

But it won’t be stopped and the only solution to not having your kids poisoned by it is to get them out of public schools. Some are learning the lesson and are doing that, but not enough. A good example is California. An article on https://www.zerohedge.com for July 9th noted that: “The most recent homeschool figures are more than twice as high as they were during the 2018-2019 school year, when 14,548 PSAs (private school affidavits) were filed. There were 22, PSAs filed during the 2019-2020 school year. The largest increase in homeschoolers was especially notable among minority groups, including black and Hispanic learners. In African American households the proportion of homeschooling quintupled from 3/3 percent in spring 2020 to 16.1 percent in fall 2020.” By the same token, the percentage of Hispanic families that opted for homeschooling rose from 6.2 percent to 12.1 percent. And this is in just one state, a state not especially friendly to homeschooling. But this tells you something. More minority folks are getting the message that the public school system ain’t really their friend–and that’s important. Now if only the white folks who are continually slandered by that system would begin to get that message! One can only hope the Lord will begin to open their eyes–if they still have eyes to see.

Critical Race Theory Is The New Holy Writ For Public Schools

by Al Benson Jr.

For you Christian (and also other) parents who still think your local public school is still okay for your kids I have to further burst your bubble in the hope of waking at least some of you all up.

I will quote from an article on https://www.thegatewaypundit.com for July 5, 2021. The headline for this article states More than 5,000 Woke Teachers Sign Pledge to Teach CRT ‘Regardless of the Law’. The article says, in part “Throughout much of 2021, conservatives, in both classrooms and in the halls of state legislatures have been fighting back against the pervasive influence of critical race theory in public schools. Laws banning the instruction of CRT tenets in public schools have passed in more than 20 states, and there is reason to hope that the tide is beginning to turn in the fight for the country’s history and principles.” I wish I could agree with the latter part of his statement, but I am unable to.

He then notes the Zinn Education Project “that refuses to accept defeat, and desires to teach American children that this country was founded upon the ‘disposition of Native Americans, slavery, structural racism and oppression.” He also observes that “The organization is named for Howard Zinn, a socialist activist and ‘historian’ who wrote A Peoples History of the United States’ a left-wing propaganda pamphlet disguised as a textb0ok that has made its way into history classes all across the country.” So whatever else comes down the pike, you have to realize that Zinn’s book is already here and in use.

The article continues “Now the ZPE is circulating a ‘Pledge to Teach the Truth’ which identifies left-wing methods of analysis like critical race theory as ‘the truth’ and decrees that the signees–all of whom are educators–refuse to be ‘bullied” into compliance with the law.” In other words, these “teachers” who are really nothing more than change agents, are going to teach what they darn well please–no matter what their state laws say. We are told that, so far, there are more than 5,000 teachers in all 50 states that have signed on to do this. And I would be willing to bet that the vast majority of them teach in public schools. So, if you think your kids are “safe” from leftist propaganda tactics in public school because your state has a law against them on the books let me tell you that this is probably not the case–unless your state legislators show some guts on this issue. Even then the outcome is questionable.

Why are the kids not safe with a law on the books that prevents teaching critical race theory you ask. I will quote the headline from another Gateway Pundit article, this one for Independence Day, July 4th. How ironic! This one says Nation’s Largest Teachers Union Approves Plan to Promote Hate-Based Critical Race Theory in All 50 States and 14000 School Districts. The teachers union the article is talking about is The National Education Association, which most public school teachers belong to. Not all, but most. The NEA calls critical race theory “reasonable and appropriate.” They’ve got to be kidding, right? Well, actually, they are not. For a leftist teachers union, critical race theory is very appropriate as it helps to spread the leftist agenda in public school classrooms nationwide.

This is the kind of thing naive parents do not comprehend when they go to school board meetings. A school board meeting in Loudon County, Virginia was recently shut down when parents had the gall to complain about some of the crap their kids were being taught in public schools there. The parents didn’t like what was going on and the school board did not want to hear their legitimate complaints so they shut the meeting down. What this means is that the school board in Loudon Country will do what it damn well pleases and the parents will have no say!

This sort of thing is going on all across the country and still parents continue to funnel their children in to these public brain laundries we are still foolish enough to refer to as “schools.” I am not indicting all public school teachers here. There are still some good ones, but they are part of a shrinking minority–not representative of the public school’s real mission–propagandizing the students with an extreme left-wing bias.

Parents, especially Christian parents need to wake up to this fact and start removing their kids from these schools. I have noted statistics from several states showing public school enrollment is dropping–but not enough! More parents need to begin to get the message, to wake up and smell the coffee. The children they save may well be their own–but they need to get those kids out of the public schools asap.

Independence Day–Are We Really Free?

by Al Benson Jr.

Member Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

The title to this article is a rhetorical question. Anyone with a brain already knows the answer and doesn’t need me to tell him. Heck, no, this country is not a free country. In fact it has not been free since the Lincoln administration. We have had the illusion of freedom, with just enough “house privileges” from our federal master to keep us pacified while he reached for total control over our lives. With Harris/Biden in the White (Red) House he now feels that goal is within his grasp and he is getting impatient to grasp it in his hot little socialist hand.

A conservative commentator recently said that the New World Order has successfully taken control of the federal government. When you look at what is now going on it is hard to argue too much with his assessment.

Just about every person Harris/Biden has picked for any official position is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, which means that, in reality, the CFR is running the country, not Biden. Biden is nothing more than their vehicle through which they take total control, if he is even cognizant of what is going on. Biden was their transmission belt to power and when he has accomplished all he can to install them, they will simply disconnect him and put him out to pasture, where he should have been in the first place.

Donald Trump was a major speed bump in the New World Order’s agenda to reduce the US to a banana republic. So everything Trump did had to be undone as quickly as possible. Stealing the election from him was a major first step and keeping him out of office has to be their logical next step. While Trump was not able to restore freedom to America, at least he tried. He is the only president in my lifetime that tried. But I think he underestimated the vice-grip the New World Order had on this country at least since the beginning of the 20th century.

So what about “freedom” in America? Ask the good folks in the South how “free” they are to celebrate their history and heritage. That history and heritage, indeed their very culture, has been under constant assault for at least three decades and probably longer. Their flags and monuments have been torn down, desecrated and vandalized to the point where many of them need a county sheriff to protect them if they go to a cemetery to commemorate the grave of one of their fallen heroes. So how “free” are they? The radical socialists and communists in this country want to destroy not only their history and culture, but them as well.

And these same communists and socialists want to destroy the ranching and farming culture of the far West. After all, who needs real beef when they can be forced to buy Bill Gates’ synthetic phony. It’s all about cultural genocide and Authentic American cultures comprised of people who dare to think for themselves must be destroyed because they are major impediments to the agenda of the New World Order. They will not willingly be slaves to that Order so they have to go!

You want to know who is really free in this country? How about Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and a whole host of other far left groups? They can burn, destroy, pillage and vandalize to their heart’s content and the prostitute press labels them as “peaceful protesters.” The police won’t dare to touch them and the cities they loot and burn have wicked politicians who label what they are doing as “reparations.” The far left can intimidate people with impunity and if those people dare to resist then they are arrested because as we all know, anyone resisting the far left is automatically a “domestic terrorist.”

So, in light of all this, please tell me how “free we are this Independence day!

Socialists And Humanists Control Public Schools


by Al Benson Jr.


Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

My most recent article on the Unitarians and socialists controlling public schools drew so much negative response in certain quarters that I felt like I struck a raw nerve. That convinced me that I had done something right. When the leftists respond with vehemence to something you wrote or said you can tell you hit a nerve

.
The public school system is one of those sacred cows you are never supposed to touch. The leftists always respond in defense of public schools when patriotic Americans point out egregious things that system does. I can imagine, somewhere down the road, some erstwhile leftist in Congress will introduce a bill to make criticism of public education a “hate crime” committed by “domestic terrorists” and then all the commentators on CNN will spend every night for a week pointing out the holiness of public education versus the “evil” of those who dare to question what it is doing to, not for, our kids.


Alex Newman’s recent article in The New American magazine for June 21, 2021 Government Schools vs. Christianity gives us lots of information on those that have in the past, and still do, control what is taught in public schools. The articles goes into the efforts of socialist John Dewey’s work in that area. Many of you have probably heard of John Dewey but you have no idea of what he really stood for or did. Alex Newman describes him as an anti-Christian Utopian and I think he was right on the money there.


He says of Dewey that “Dewey, who visited the Soviet Union and wrote glowing reports about the supposed wonders of communism, is today almost universally regarded as the founding father of America’s government school system. Aside from his political and economic views, his ‘religious’ views were at the center of his efforts. Backed by Rockefeller money, Dewey was an avid foe of Christianity. In fact, he was one of the authors and signers of one of the most brazen public attacks on the Bible of the early 20th century. Dubbed the Humanist Manifesto , it was a total assault on Scripture, starting with the very first words, ‘Religious humanists regard the universe as self-existing and not created.'”


Newman described humanism quire accurately when he said “Humanism is basically a retread of the satanic lie found in Genesis 3:5–‘For God know that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil,’ that man can be his own god.” So the humanists, many of whom are Unitarians and socialists, parade their anti-Christian bias in plain sight. But there are dire implications for Dewey’s worldview, for us and our children.


Newman has observed: “And yet, if children are indoctrinated to believe in Dewey’s humanist religion, there can be no God-given rights, because there is no God to grant any rights. There are also no objective and eternal moral standards.” Do you begin to see where this kind of education is taking our kids?


Charles Francis Potter, one of Dewey’s good humanist buddies wrote a book back in 1930 entitled Humanism: A New Religion. It wasn’t, but Potter thought it was. And he raised a very good point, especially for Christians. He said: “What can a theistic Sunday school’s meeting for an hour once a week and teaching only a fraction of the children do to stem the tide of the five-day program of humanistic teaching?” I’ve asked that same question myself. I don’t like the answer. Yet most Christians seem satisfied to give the kids and hour of Sunday school once a week while sending them to public school to get 30-35 hours of humanist indoctrination–and then they wonder why they have problems with the kids! They can’t seem to figure out what the problem is. And quite possibly they can’t because they were “educated” in those same humanist public schools and were (mis)taught so they would be incapable of seeing the problem.


So many think if they just get in there they can reform the public schools. I know people who have tried that and have had to give it up as a bad job. That ain’t gonna happen folks. The public schools will not be reformed because they are doing exactly what they were created to do.


So don’t waste your time on parent teacher meetings and all the other trivia thrown in your way to distract you. Get your kids out of the public school system. Separate from it, secede from it, whatever terminology you want to use–get your kids out of it and keep them out of it! There are all kinds of Christian schools and home school programs out there. Do a little homework and find out what is available. There is a lot more available now than there used to be when my wife and I homeschooled. For your kids sake see what you can find.

Marxist Propaganda In Public Schools Posing As Education

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

I have written about Critical Race Theory before, and I probably will again. It is such a pernicious world view that it deserves all the negative publicity possible. At this point, several state legislatures around the country have bills in their legislatures to ban the teaching of this theory in their public schools and, while I have no use for the public school system, I do applaud these efforts. At least some in these state legislatures recognize what a horrendous insult to real education this leftist drivel really is.

However, for some reason, that does not hold true in the state of Washington. According to https://thefederallist.com/2021/06/03/washington-mandates-critical-race-theory this leftist plague will be visited on all public school students in that state. According to this article: “The race-obsessed framework isn’t relegated to schools in Seattle, where you’d expect a victim-centered ideology like critical race theory to flourish. Thanks to the state’s Democrat-controlled legislature, a trio of bills just signed into law mandates critical race theory training for all public school teachers. Another even requires training for medical students, teaching them it’s as essential to be social justice activists as it is to treat patients.. While critical race theory mandates go into effect in the 2022-2023 school year, many districts are already jumping on board.” Two mentioned are the Issaquah School District and the one in Bellingham.

The article also observes that “Staffers learn that black people cannot be racist because they don’t have power, that whites benefit from white privilege even if they experience ‘high poverty’ and that virtually every American institution is founded in white supremacy.” Can you imagine teachers being forced to communicate this lunacy to their students? This is not education. This is Marxist indoctrination, pure and simple. It occurs to me that those who promote this sort of thing are the real racists and not those they are trying to teach this stuff to.

You have racial prejudice among all ethnic groups, not just white folks, and to try to tell students that they are “racist” just because they are white is doing them a real disservice. By the same token, telling black students they lack the ability to have racial prejudice is lying to them. And those that promote this twaddle know that.

I mentioned in a previous article, an article by Christopher Rufo on Imprimis for March, 2021, Volume 50, No. 3 where Mr. Rufo deals with Critical Race Theory. He states: “Critical race theory is an academic discipline, formulated in the 1990s, built on the intellectual framework of identity-based Marxism. Relegated for many years to universities and obscure academic journals, over the past decade it has increasingly become the default ideology in our public institutions. It has been injected into government agencies, public school systems, teacher training programs, and corporate human resources departments in the form of diversity training programs, human resources modules, public policy frameworks, and school curricula.” If you can locate Mr. Rufo’s article on the internet https://imprimis.hillsdale.edu/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/imprimis_Mar_3-21

From what he has said, it doesn’t look like the leftists have missed out in many areas–education, business, you name it. While we have been busy and bemused watching ball games and reality shows the radical leftists among us have been busy with their efforts to subvert our institutions–and mostly we don’t begin to have the remotest clue. Where has the Christian Church been while all this was going on? Don’t hold your breath waiting for the answer to that one! I’m not sure you want to know!

For the poor folks in Washington who will be subjected to all of this I have some advice. Get your kids OUT of the public school system immediately if not sooner! Unless you want your kids to be trained to be good little Marxists, you don’t need this! And people in other states need to keep an eye on this situation, lest your legislators betray you and cave in to this sort of thing.

The leftists seem to come up with lots of noble-sounding euphemisms–tolerance, brotherhood, inclusiveness, and others, but when you look at the real guts of what they are peddling it is usually just a sugar-coated Marxism, with just enough sugar to fool the naive.

Critical Race Theory is bad news–Marxist bad news. Those who want to protect their children from this pile of leftist cow chips need to be aware of that fact. And once you become aware, then inform others.

Why Do Parents Put Up With This Crap?

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

I just read an article by a Nebojsa Malic on Russia Today for March 27th. I find it interesting that we seem to get more real news from foreign outlets than we do from the so-called “news” media in this country anymore. I have never been a big fan of Russia Today, in the past or now, so when I see more real news on that outlet than we get from what passes for the news media presently it only illustrates the total degeneracy and political corruption of the mainstream media in this country.

Anyone depending on our mainstream media for anything except leftist propaganda has to have a generous dose of mush between their ears.

Anyway, Malic’s article had some interesting observations contained in it. Thoughts to make American parents think, however many of them may still be capable of rational thought anymore. Malic noted: “Of course, the devil is in the details, such as making elementary school children (in California) invoke Aztec gods to empower them as ‘warriors’ for social justice. Among them is the ‘revolutionary spirit’ Huitzilopochtli, the deity of war and sun–and recipient of thousands of human sacrifices. Modern woke narratives paint the Aztecs as oppressed ‘people of color’ who fell victim to ‘white oppressors’ in the form of Spanish conquistadors, papering over inconvenient facts such as that the Aztecs slaughtered other Mesoamerican peoples…” And this is true. I have read some of the history, having some interest in American Indians over the years. The Aztecs were by no means Mesoamerican innocents. They got to where they were by killing off their opposition, some in battle, but many by bloody human sacrifice. And, in California, public school children are now supposed to be chanting to these pagan “gods.” Anything wrong with this picture?

If a public school teacher mentions the name of Jesus Christ in a positive way in a classroom that teacher could lose his or her job. But, hey, chanting to Aztec gods is okay, right? No problem there at all!

The the writer of this Russia Today article makes an astounding observation–astounding because it seems to be all true. He says “It’s not that Americans are less religious, as the polling suggests, but less Christian–the old religion getting replaced by politics, wokeness, and whatever the worship of Huitzilopochtli is supposed to be called.”

So I wonder, at this point, how many Christians in California have their children in public schools? Any number is too many! What do the Christians in California think of this new religious trend in “their” public schools? I have read nothing at all in this regard. So unless I hear something different, I have to assume that most Christians in that state have no problem with their kids being taught to chant to Aztec gods. If you have heard something different please let me know. I’d hate to think that California’s Christians have no problem with this.

Every Christian parent with a kid in public school in California should be yanking that kid out of public school as we speak.

Unfortunately, California is a bell-weather of what the rest of the country can eventually expect to be subjected to. So if the anti-Christs in that state get by with this then you can soon expect some of the more “progressive” aka leftist states in other areas to try to pull something similar. Christians need to be constantly reminded that the public school system does not belong to them. It is the Unitarian/socialist brainchild of the leftist Education Establishment in this country. It has been promoting anti-Christianity in one form or another since the 1800s. And Christians still haven’t figured that out! I begin to wonder if they ever will!

Too many Christians have been sold a bill of goods that tells them their little Johnny or Mary can be a “witness” to their degenerate public school system and help turn things around. Folks, that’s a croc and those that peddled that fable to you know it. It’s nothing more than their way of keeping your kids in the public brain laundry so they can be propagandized beyond your ability to reverse that action.

It’s about time Christians woke up before they lose their kids–and their country! If you can’t find a good Christian school for the kids then teach them at home. That will still be better than leaving them in public school to be subject to whatever whims the current “gods” in the public education establishment want to do to them.

“Cultural Genocide 1861-2020”

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

The Kennedy Brothers, in the third edition of The South Was Right! Shotwell Publishing, Columbia, South Carolina dealt with the ongoing problem of cultural genocide in chapter 17.

They observe, in the opening comments of this chapter that: “While updating the third edition of this book we found this chapter to be saddest chapter in the entire book. It is sad because had Southern Heritage organizations and leadership took our advice back in 1994 when we issued the second edition, we would not be witnessing the massive slandering and destruction of our Southern society we see all around us today (2020). In 1994 we pointed out that it will require bold political action to halt the Yankee Empire’s genocidal attack on the South. Our call for bold action was met with slanderous accusations of treason to the good ole U.S.A. and charges that the Kennedy Twins were radical and extremist–such slanderous accusations did not come from anti-South neo-Marxists but from leaders in Southern heritage organizations. One national leader told us, ‘We have more important things to do,’ while another told us we were ‘too confrontational.’ Pacified Southerners preferred to ignore the approaching neo-Marxist apocalypse while quietly meeting, eating, and retreating. Their timid, pathetic, non-defense of the South consisted of nothing more than pinning ‘I attended the convention’ medals on their chest or diligently researching their genealogy to justify the wearing of one more ancestor medal on their heritage ribbon. Such Southerners have no room to mock Nero for fiddling while Rome burned!”

I have run into people like that and I am willing to bet some of you have also. These are the folks who seek to live on the laurels of their ancestors without really trying to defend the cause for which their ancestors fought. Most of them probably attended public schools where they were taught really faulty “history” about their ancestors and the righteous cause for which they fought (and it wasn’t slavery) and whether they realize it or not, they have absorbed much of that fake history.

It is lots easier to subdue a people that has been taught bad history about their foundations. We see this happening today in government schools all across the land where Marxist programs like Critical Race Theory and similar programs like the 1619 Project are being used in colleges and K-12 government schools to give our young folks a terribly false and disjointed view of our history while at the same time portraying communism as something to be grasped for and sought after.

And what is our response? Mostly ambivalence. Even here in the South it is so much easier to just “go with the flow” and not bother to stand up and speak out for your history and your heritage. After all, they might call you a “racist” and that’s the last thing most folks want. Easier to just “sit down and shut up” and most folks in our day, even Southerners, have been taught to avoid any controversy that might draw the wrong attention to themselves.

Problem is, as the Kennedy Brothers tell us, this has been going on since at least 1861 and it shows no signs whatever of abating in our day. The Kennedys observe, accurately, that “The Southern political scalawags and their fellow travelers are the keys to maintaining Northern liberal political domination of our Southern homeland.” They liken those people to the French traitors who helped the Nazis in World War 2. The Kennedys tell us “Southern scalawags have led the fight to destroy our precious Southern heritage. The reason? Because they owe their allegiance, not to the people of the South, not to the principles of Constitutional liberty, but to the establishment, the power brokers who control the supreme federal government.”

The Kennedys noted, on page 399, that “Our Southern society has a heritage rich in cultural diversity. The study of the various cultures that comprise this heritage is certainly relevant and laudable. The problem is that the liberal education establishment has assumed unto itself the right to decide which cultures are relevant and which ones must be ignored. It has assumed unto itself the right to teach cultural diversity in a manner that will best support its left-of-center liberal bias. By ignoring and or falsifying our Southern heritage the liberal establishment is engaging in a deliberate campaign of cultural genocide.”

There is much more in chapter 17 than I can ever go into here. You really need to read this third edition of The South Was Right! and look at where we are in our day through the lens of what the Kennedys tell us. I know both of these men. They have done the homework–and where Southerners have failed to live up to their birthright, they don’t hesitate to tell us.

One thing we need to do that would be a step in the right direction is to start checking out educational alternatives to our present government education system. In spite of the occasional good teacher, that system will never give us the truth about our history and heritage and if we don’t learn that truth we will be forever reinventing the wheel in every generation and wondering why the wheel is square!

Texas Actions Benefit Red China

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

All those who work to help Communist China to dominate the U.S. do not live across the water somewhere. Many of them were born and raised in the good old U S of A. Look at what is going on in Sodom on the Potomac with the Harris/Biden Regime. The watchword for this regime seems to be “America Last, for ever and always!” Biden’s main interest in China, along with everything else he has done seems to be more financial then anything else–like, what can the Chinese Reds do for his family financially? The people behind Biden who pull his strings are much more interested in a Communist China that can and will dominate the U.S. His vice-president and Obama are two that come to mind in this area.

However, not all those that help Red China to practice domination of this country are Marxists–at least not on the surface. Some might only be interested, like Biden, in what Red China can do for their bank accounts.

It is getting more and more difficult in our day to know just who you can trust anymore. Some who have genuinely seemed conservative are doing things that harm this country to the benefit of Red China.

Someone sent me an article by Tom Dees from the National File for February 24th that spoke to this. Mr. Dees wrote: “Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s green energy policies paved the way for companies like GH America and Goldwind Americas, both with deep ties to the Chinese Communist Party, to profit millions from tax abatements and Renewable Energy Credits at the taxpayer’s expense…The investments gave the Chinese government direct access to Texas’ energy grid and sensitive national security information, including security assessments affecting the grid’s health and performance. National File previously reported on the threat that Chinese energy companies pose to Texas’ energy grid and national security. In a statement to National File, Cary Cheshire, President of Texans for Fiscal Responsibility, dubbed Governor Abbott’s slew of green proposals, ‘Abbott’s Green New Deal.’ Cary suggested, ‘Despite sitting on some of the world’s largest deposits of reliable and dependable fuels, Gov. Greg Abbott and the Texas state government have been administering their own Green New Deal by doling out over $10 billion in taxpayer dollars to subsidize operators of wind and solar energy. The state-administered Green New Deal has undermined the strength of our electric grid while transferring wealth from taxpayers and ratepayers to crony insiders and foreign governments.”

Dees continued: “The Daily Mail dubbing it ‘deeply troubling’ recorded Goldwind America’s deep ties to the Chinese government in June of 2020, noting that 40% of Goldwin’s top investors were known members of the Communist Party.” You mean to tell me Governor Abbott was not aware of this? Bet he was and just didn’t care.

A Dallas businessman who supported Abbott in 2014 said: “Abbott has allowed the Dragon in our backyard! Communist China is heavily invested in our wind and solar farms.” My my, what a surprise!

I read an article recently about some Chinese outfit that not long ago bought something like 130,000 acres in West Texas, somewhere just west of Del Rio. I’d be willing to bet that lots of good West Texans would not be real happy with this development. Some of this land has to be along the border–just made to order for Biden’s new oncoming crop of illegal immigrants. Wonder if all these new illegals will wear face masks and practice social distancing. Probably not–those rules are only for stupid Americans. They won’t apply to Biden’s illegal hordes.

However you look at it, the great State of Texas is being sold out from under the booted feet of Texans and handed piecemeal to the new erstwhile attackers of the Alamo–the Communist Chinese–and it would seem that the current governor of Texas loves to have it so.

Some Politically Correct (bad) History For Oklahoma

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Way back before I was married I lived for part of one year in Oklahoma, in addition to having spent quite a bit of time over the years in and out of the state. Oklahoma has always been one of my favorite spots in the country. I always found the folks there warm and friendly.

The year we lived there my Dad and I went down to Oklahoma City to find out about getting work in the state park system. That didn’t work out for us and it’s probably good that it didn’t, for had it done so I would not have gone back east and ended up marrying my wife. So the Lord had a plan for us in leaving Oklahoma. That being said, I still remember Oklahoma with fondness and my wife and I have visited it on more than one occasion as I wanted her to see one of the places in the West that I had learned to love.

So it was with a certain degree of sadness that I recently read an article by Allan Wall on https://vdare.com/writers/allan-wall abolishing the Oklahoma Land Run Monument from the community college in Oklahoma City.

Mr. Wall observed: “The land runs, which were actual races for land, are part of Oklahoma history. It’s how a significant portion of the state was settled. The first land run was in 1889, settling an area of central Oklahoma called ‘the unassigned lands’ which was uninhabited and not belonging to any Indian tribe. that’s the land run in which Oklahoma City was founded, jumping the population from zero to 10,000 in one day. In this era of Heritage Haters, the Land Runs are under attack. Now a monument at the Oklahoma City college has been removed…The large concrete slab, visible outside the main building on campus, depicted those who came to Oklahoma for the Land Run of 1889 as heroes and innovators, OCCC officials said. Executive Vice President Danita Rose, whose maternal grandfather was of Cherokee descent, said that the decision to remove the monument was a top priority for the executive leadership team.” In other words, the politically correct element at the college wanted this monument gone regardless of its value to the heritage of the state.

Some noted that it was the old “I’m Cherokee” argument but Mr. Wall gives the lie to that foolishness when he notes: “The land settled in the 1889 land run was not Cherokee land, had never been Cherokee l land and was never settled by the Cherokee.” And, interestingly enough, it had been a Cherokee who, in 1879,suggested that these unassigned lands be opened up to white settlement!

Danita Rose commented that: “If our goal is to create a community that is inclusive and welcoming to everyone, a monument that depicts cruelty and oppression can’t be on display here.” Frankly, I am at a loss to see how a monument to a land rush for land that was uninhabited contributes to cruelty and oppression, but then that’s just me. I’m sure the politically correct leftists among us can point to how any monument, anywhere, that they don’t particularly like contributes to cruelty and oppression in their narrow minds. I suppose they’d like to see the Land Rush monument replaced with a statue of either Marx or Lenin, those compassionate champions of humanity whose followers killed millions. Now wouldn’t such be a major contribution to “diversity”?

Actually what it all comes down to is that, when it comes to monuments “no white folks need apply.” In this day and age the definition of diversity means everybody except white folks. We are simply beyond the pale when it comes to diversity.

The Land Run of 1889 did not create oppression and/or cruelty but that doesn’t matter. The leftists claim it did and that’s all that matters. If you dare to question their historical knowledge or perspective then you are nothing but a racist bigot–so sit down and shut up!

It would seem that the Community College of Oklahoma City has succumbed to the thrall of leftist dogma so prevalent on most campuses today. Now, even with community colleges you have to be careful where you send your kids as there are fewer and fewer places where they won’t be bombarded with socialist doctrines. I wonder, with all that is going on today, how much Communist China has to do with what is being taught in many colleges.
