The Real Hate-Mongers Are On the Left

by Al Benson Jr.

There is an old saying, I don’t know who originated it, but the Marxists and their allies have often used it in principle. It is “Condemn others and elevate yourself.” In other words, if you are doing something really reprehensible what you should do is to accuse your opposition of what you are doing and thereby focus peoples’ attention on them rather than on yourself. Often this works well and you can continue doing what you are doing while blaming your opposition for it and the people that can’t be bothered to do a little homework don’t know the difference. They just buy whatever you have said and, thereby, become “useful idiots” for the left’s current hate campaign.

This is exactly the situation we see with the current purge of all things Confederate going on. If you really look closely you can see leftist vitriol and hate manifesting itself in all of this. Who in his right mind would want to dig up the graves of Nathan Bedford Forrest and his wife, who have been dead for over 100 years? That kind of overt disrespect and disregard really has to be deep-seated. As bad as he was, has anyone seen anybody on the right seek to have Stalin disinterred? Or any of the other brutal Communist dictators?

The theological and political left have really displayed an amazing amount of hate against those they disagree with, to the point of having their memory expunged from public view, all for the “noble” cause of “fighting racism.” Of course when promoting hate and division it always helps to drape yourself in the robes of (self)righteousness and to present your cause as the one that is promoting “inclusiveness” when, in reality, that is the last thing you are about.

The theological left seems to have changed what the Scripture says (nothing new for them) and now the new unforgivable sin is “racism” instead of blasphemy against the Holy Spirit and we must now partake of all manner of horrible deeds to expunge the world of “racism.” Kind of like the cartoon I saw years ago showing people at a “peace” rally carrying signs that said “kill for peace.”

Pastor Chuck Baldwin summed some of this up pretty well in a column he wrote on July 9th. He said: “And look what is happening now; in one instant–after one deranged young man killed nine black people and who ostensibly photo-shopped a picture of himself with a Confederate flag–the entire political and media establishments in the country go on an all-out crusade to remove all semblances of the Confederacy.” And then Pastor Baldwin made a statement that I and many others consider to be the real crux of the matter. He said: “The speed in which all this has happened suggests that this was a planned, orchestrated event by the Powers That Be (PTB). And is it a mere coincidence that this took place at the exact same time that the U.S Supreme Court decided to legalize same-sex marriage? I think not.” Lots of other folks “think not” too, Pastor.

And Pastor Baldwin also observed, and this, I think, is the real crux of the matter, that: “May I tell you that the Confederate Flag is indeed a Christian flag because it has the cross of St. Andrew, who was a Christian martyr, and the letter ‘X’ has always been used to represent Christ, and to attack the flag is to deny the sovereignty, the majesty, and the might of the Lord Jesus Christ and His divine role in our history, culture and life.” And that, in my opinion, is what it is really all about. Under the noble-sounding euphemism of “combatting racism” the left is really attacking what they realize is a Christian symbol and thereby expressing their extreme hatred for anything Christian.

The Confederate Flag has been noted around the world  as a symbol of resistance to tyrants and that is another reason the left hates it. They are potentially tyrannical in their worldview and therefore they hate anything that is a symbol of resistance to any of their agendas. And remember also, that the left in this country is directed and funded by a group we could call the “shadow government.” These are the same people that give many of our “elected” officials their marching orders, and they, along with the leftists, hate “we the people.” And they especially hate the Christians among us because they recognize, in the Christian faith, a potential challenge to their tyranny and, if the truth be known, they hate Jesus Christ. In the final analysis that’s what it all comes down to.

The theological and political left hates the Christian faith and any culture that springs from that faith and they seek the destruction of such. But they can’t come out and say that openly at this point. So they seek to camouflage their intense hatred with expressions of “concern” about “racism” and the lack of “inclusiveness” and all manner of sophistries about compassion. You might well paraphrase that expression used by evangelists “God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life.” The leftist version of that is “The left hates you and has a wonderful plan for your destruction.” Remember, the Scripture says “God is love” but we also need to recognize in the real world that the leftists and their handlers are the biggest haters there are.

From the Liberal Left To the Loony Left They All Hate Confederate Flags And Symbols

by Al Benson Jr.

In recent days I have continued to observe as the theological and political left continues to orchestrate its assault against anything and everything Confederate. Some of their suggestions really swing to the loony side and some of their writers literally froth at the mouth. Their hatred of anything Southern or Confederate is really intense and unremitting. These people are not about to cease and desist. They see, at this point, a very real possibility of destroying Southern and Christian culture in the South and they want to be in for the kill! Most Southern folks don’t begin to grasp this. They need to.

There was an article on http://www.salon.com  on July 10th the headline for which was: “Let’s make the Confederate flag a hate crime: It is the American swastika and we should recoil from its horror.” The author of this loving and compassionate article is a Nick Bromell, who is a professor of American Studies at Massachusetts University at Amhurst. You almost had to know an article with this much anti-Southern vitriol had to originate with a Massachusetts leftist. I checked Professor Bromell out to see where he was coming from (though I already had a pretty good hunch). Turns out he’s pretty close to my age. I would have thought, from his style of writing, that he was a twenty-something frustrated youngster who was venting his angst about the South at the world.

He ended his Salon article with this little tidbit: “Has the age of ‘enmity’ finally ended?  Has the ‘malignant spirit’ finally died away? Has the ‘pestilence’ finally abated?  The answer to all these questions is ‘no’. The hateful actions of Dylann Roof remind us of that. So do the white supremacist websites Roof found appealing. So do the many Confederate flags displayed in places across the South–and beyond–today, emblazoning T-shirts, affixed to car bumpers, and worn as lapel pins in business suits.” So we supposedly have to get rid of all our flags and symbols because, to this professor and others of his ilk, they represent “hate.” Just so happens that one of Professor Bromell’s areas of study, and the name of a course he has taught, is “Emerson and Du Bois.” Apparently he feels that Emerson the Unitarian and Du Bois the Communist have something in common–and if you grasp the socialist bent of Unitarianism, they probably do .Bromell’s article exhibits the utmost in what many have labeled as “liberal love.”

Problem with the leftists is that what they really want to do is to edit history to make it say what they wish it said. If they can’t do that then they’d like to make sure laws are passed that would allow them to have removed from history the parts they don’t like and to make it a crime for anyone to believe any other version of history than theirs.

In this vein, I also ran across another article, and maybe this one could be considered to come from the loony left. It was about another college professor. It was on a site called Red Alert and was written by Ryan Girdusky on July 9th.  It’s brief. He states:” An assistant college professor claimed on Twitter that all whites have benefitted from slavery and are complicit in that evil institution that was abolished nearly 150 years ago. And when asked what whites should do to remedy this situation, Professor Adam Kotsko said whites must ‘commit mass suicide’.” There was a picture of Professor Kotsko with the article, and he’s as white as I am. One can only assume, given his suggestion, that he will step up and be first in line to do what he has suggested for the rest of us, right? Right? And someone may have suggested that to him because he later claimed that he didn’t really mean it and that no one should have taken him seriously.

It absolutely gives me the shivers to think that people today, in any area of the country, still send their kids blithely off to college to be taught by professors like the two noted in this article. What can you be thinking of to send your kids off to be taught this kind of stuff? This isn’t even high-grade bovine fertilizer!

Folks, it should be starting to be apparent, and we have got to get it though our heads–the religious and political left is at war with us, our faith, and our culture, and if we keep going on the way we have been, we will hand them the victory by sheer default. They are actively seeking and working to overthrow our entire system of faith and culture (they hate Christianity and even the thought of the old Confederacy), practicing cultural genocide on our entire region, and we are arguing when them about license tags!

We have been fighting a rear-guard action against those people for decades. Maybe it’s time for Christians and Confederates to change their tactics and do a little offensive battle. We’ve been reacting to what they’ve been working to do do us. That’s why the left calls us reactionaries! Could be we need to find ways not to just fight back, but to go on the offensive where we can determine to do that.

It’s interesting  that most Southern folks have not yet perceived that most of the vitriol directed against them and their culture has been coming from the left, and from the One World Government crowd (is there any difference between the two?). To put it bluntly, they want us gone. They with want our kids gone or brainwashed out of their minds so they don’t know upside down from inside out. They want our Christian faith trashed and our Southern culture disposed of and they are not ashamed to admit that. And we’re still out there trying to “be nice” to them so that maybe they’ll let us alone! That will never happen. Maybe it’s time we took the gloves off and threw a few punches. The left is not invulnerable. Let’s start trying to find their Achilles heel and seek the Lord’s help when we do. Praying some of the imprecatory psalms might be one good place to begin.

Media Manipulators–Lying Since the 1850s

By Al Benson Jr.

Those who manipulate the news, the spin masters, and those who shape news events to fit their own political agendas have been alive and well in this country at least since the 1850s, and probably before. These are the people who take news events and reshape them so that they say what they want them to say. For them truth is a by-word, to be pushed aside whenever it happens to get in the way of their pet agendas. They are journalistic Marxists—using the “news” they have created to justify the ends they promote.

One of the most famous (or infamous) of these was James Redpath. Early in his career he wrote anti-slavery articles under the pseudonym of “Berwick” and later worked as a reporter for Utopian Socialist Horace Greeley’s New York Tribune. According to Wikipedia: “An early assignment at the Tribune involved compiling ‘Facts of Slavery,’ a regular series of articles gathered from Southern newspaper exchanges. Beginning in March 1854, he traveled in the South to examine slavery for himself, interviewing slaves and collecting material published in 1859 as The Roving Editor: or, Talks with Slaves in the Southern States. The book’s production costs were covered by prominent antislavery philanthropist Gerrit Smith.” That was the Gerrit Smith of “Secret Six” fame, who got himself admitted to a sanitarium after the John Brown affair at Harpers Ferry, Virginia.

According to dlib.nyu.edu “Redpath inaugurated a ‘Facts of Slavery’ column for the New York Tribune, curating slave trade information from the Southern press, and later went South to interview slaves so they could have a forum for relating their experiences in their own words. He later took jobs at Southern newspapers and surreptitiously sent reports back north in the guise of letters to relatives in Minnesota. They, in turn, under prior arrangement, forwarded the reports to editors.” He was later a war correspondent with Sherman’s army. If he was in Georgia with them I’ll bet he had a ball whitewashing what “Sherman’s bummers” did there.

By 1855 Redpath had showed up on the Kansas-Missouri border and was writing for a Free Soil newspaper, the Missouri Democrat, on the problems in “Bleeding Kansas.” For yet another three years he continued to stick his “news media” nose into the situation in Kansas. He had involvement in politics and he continued to write “dispatches” in which he tried to gain support in New England for Free State settlers in Kansas. In 1856 he interviewed terrorist  John Brown, supposedly just days after he and his gang had murdered five pro-slavery men at Pottawatomie Creek by hacking them to death with broadswords while their families were forced to stand by and watch the gruesome scene. Folks, I submit, this was 19th century terrorism in living color! After that event Redpath became John Brown’s “most fervent publicist.”

Otto Scott, in his informative book The Secret Six: The Fool As Martyr said of Redpath “One of the magicians of confusion, expert at misdirecting attention, was the journalist James Redpath, who appeared in John Brown’s camp on the afternoon of May 29, 1856. How he found the camp remains a mystery. What he and John Brown discussed remains essentially unknown, except for a fable that Redpath wrote three years later, in a mendacious book about the scene. Here he described Brown as both a Cromwellian figure, all Biblical quotes and stern rules for clean living and high thinking and as chief of noble outlaws sequestered in the forest.” And so we see the “news media” of the 1850s hard at work, turning the terrorist into a saint for the dubious benefit of his Eastern readers.

You do have to wonder, along with Otto Scott, how Redpath located the terrorist camp, and Redpath never really tells. That would be giving out too much news that the public is not supposed to be aware of. However, Otto Scott made an interesting connection here, another one the “historians” don’t really want you to know about. He noted: “At the time Redpath met Brown in his camp, however, there could well have been more than journalistic curiosity involved. Redpath was a friend of the unscrupulous Jim Lane—the Free Soil leader who had escaped the treason dragnet cast out by the territorial government–…Brown, who Redpath and everyone else in the territory by now knew to be responsible for the Pottawatomie murders, was a man who seemed worth contacting, and Lane—according to Charles Robinson later—was in favor of using terror as a means of gaining power and property.” Anyone who has ever read any of the history of the Kansas-Missouri border problems and the “Civil War” in that area is familiar with Jim Lane. If you are not, then do a Google search on him. Lots of stuff out there on old “mad dog” Jim Lane!

However, Lane’s connection to “journalist” Redpath is never mentioned, but in looking at it as Scott has done you can begin to see the connection between terrorist Jim Lane and terrorist John Brown, and the conduit is news media pundit James Redpath.

And Scott has also noted something else the “historians” don’t comment much on. He said: “But it was clear that the murders in the Pottawatomie area had coincided with a series of organizing moves to drive Southern settlers out of Kansas, to destroy Southern settlements…The appearance of such deliberate and coordinated violence, however, could not have been possible, nor could it have proceeded, without a covering legend by Northern newspapermen, who shrouded its significance from the nation.”

So you can see that the “news media” today has a really checkered inheritance to live up to. They are still doing what the media back in the 1850s did—prevarication, waffling, obfuscation (I’m trying to find a nice way to say they were liars). Nothing has changed. But if you begin to get some faint glimmer of what they did back then you might begin to grasp what they are still doing today.

The Marxist President, the War Criminal, and Slave Reparations

By Al Benson Jr.

There was an article posted on www.thefederalistpapers.org  for April 19th  about how our Marxist president wants to punish all Americans (at least all white Americans) for slavery. I have been watching over the years as various race-baiters have sought to find a way to scam more Americans out of what little money they may have left. The slavery reparations game is just one more Marxist “redistribute the wealth” campaign. Does anyone honestly think that any of the ordinary black folks in this country will ever see a thin dime of “reparations” money if they manage to pull this off? Hardly! The Je$$e Jacksons and Al Sharptons and their organizations will be the ones to benefit from this scam, not ordinary black folks, so let’s don’t try to kid anyone as to what this is really all about.

The Federalist Papers article was written by Russ Helper, and he noted: “Every decade or so, the radical left mentions paying reparations to African-Americans for pre-Civil War slavery. The idea is that even though slavery was abolished over 150 years ago, many in the black community are still suffering from its effects. But now a report has come to light that the President is seriously considering forcing all Americans to pay reparations to descendants of slaves.”

Now I have to admit, I’m not a real big fan of that idea. My family didn’t come here until the early 1880s, from England and Scotland, so they didn’t own any slaves before the War of Northern Aggression—but, then, I forgot. They were white, so they were automatically guilty of “racism” and therefore, I, who am white, should feel guilty over that (I don’t. Sorry!) and I should be willing to shell out big bucks for slaves my family never owned to someone who has never been a slave. That’s the way this game is played in case you hadn’t figured that out yet.

So now the next installment of the reparations game is in full swing. Charles Payne, who is black, and works for Fox News has predicted that we will soon see an apology for slavery from the Red (White) House, and also the possibility of “massive sums of money doled out in reparations for slavery.” He says “There’s going to be a major push to get cash, and I’m talking LOTS of cash.”

All the slaves are dead, as are all the slaveowners, so how will Obama justify trying to pilfer the wallets of present day Americans with his reparations scheme? Well, he’s checked that out, and Mr. Helper’s article noted: “He cites a special field order from Union General William Tecumseh Sherman in which he confiscated 400,000 acres of land along the Atlantic Coast for division into the 40 acre lots to house the tens of thousands of freed slave refugees who had joined his march. Sherman’s intentions are disputed, though many believe it was meant to be only a temporary fix for an immediate problem. According to Payne, that order will be seen as an unfulfilled promise by the federal government, and that it could very well be a driving force behind the push for reparations…On the surface, some people could make the argument that this is only just and the right thing to do, but is it really? The truth is that 90% of those living in the south prior to the Civil War never owned slaves. Why should any of their descendants be forced to pay for something their ancestors didn’t do?” Because they are white, that’s why.

The special field order under discussion here is Special Field Orders Number 15. According to Michael Fellman in his book Citizen Sherman, “Sherman then recalled that he had then sat down and drafted his Special Field Orders Number 15, which he issued after (Edwin) Stanton had edited them carefully. Other historians have stressed Stanton’s role in the authorship, as well as that of the Joint Congressional Committee on the Conduct of the War. Whatever their exact genesis, these orders were an extremely radical proposal for redistribution of land confiscated from slaveholders to the newly freed slaves…’abandoned’ plantations (from which the owners had fled on the approach of Union troops)  were to be distributed in plots of ‘not more than forty acres of tillable ground’ to black heads of families’.” Fellman continued: “Land confiscation as one means of displacing the Confederate leadership had been discussed widely during the war…The general too had, since 1862, threatened Southerners with dispossession, their land to be distributed to Northern white colonists.” And Sherman continued: “…it may be both politic and right that we should banish them and appropriate their lands to a more loyal and useful population…If they want eternal war, well and good; we will dispossess them and put our friends in their place…Many people with less pertinacity have been wiped out of national existence.”

So it would appear that Comrade Obama and his socialist cadre plan to use this approach as their excuse to gouge the American public for reparations money. However, is this claim really legitimate?  Fellman noted on page 169 of his book that: “After the war, Sherman would claim that he intended his Special Field Orderss Number 15 only as an emergency war measure, and he did not protest when Andrew Johnson revoked it in 1866. So if Andrew Johnson revoked it that means it no longer had any binding authority after his revocation. Of course Obama and his minions have not bothered to mention Johnson’s revocation—at least not that I’ve read about and you can bet the farm that if the “news” media is aware of it they are not about to mention it either.

This whole scenario aptly illustrates why I call those people Yankee/Marxists. The Northern political and military industrial complex had a decided Marxist bent to it even that early.

In The Communist Manifesto Karl Marx, writing at the behest of the League of the Just  (Illuminati) listed ten points that Communists should employ in their seizure of various countries. Number One was: “Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes.” Number Four was: “Confiscation of the property of all émigrés and rebels.” So, basically what Sherman sought to do in confiscating thousands of acres and redistributing them to ex-slaves was an exercise in pure Marxism—but that wouldn’t bother Comrade Obama. That’d be right up his alley, just the like the reparations scam will be right up his alley—redistribution of the wealth is another Marxist tenet and you can bet the wealth always gets “redistributed” to their friends, their corporate fascist buddies.

I don’t know if he will try to push something like this through Congress, although many of them wouldn’t be averse to it, or if he will try to do it through yet another “executive order.” The gutless wonders in Congress, in both parties, would probably love to give him this, but there is an election coming up next year, farce though it is and some of these turkeys do want to get voted back in so they can keep feeding at the trough. But keep your eyes open either way. This Marxist scheme needs to be resisted.

Baltimore And Hillary–Two birds with one stone

by Al Benson Jr.

Those who have studied the MO (method of operation) for the Marxists for years have noted that one of their most productive agendas is to be able to undertake the orchestration of two seemingly unrelated events and work them out so that two different purposes are worked out and accomplished at the same time. They often, if all goes right, manage to kill two birds with one stone, and, as I said in an earlier article, many on the right are not even aware there are birds out there. As I check out some of these “conservative” websites on the Internet I have become convinced that many of them don’t have a clue while others–well, enough said.

Many have watched the purposeful escalation of racial tensions in Ferguson and Baltimore and can see how these situations are being worked out to serve the purpose of the One World Government clique. Part of this has been what we call the “Black Privilege” agenda. For so long we have had our “White Privilege” shoved down our throats that many, if not most, have not even had time to consider that such a thing as black privilege also exists–and that’s also part of the program.

Recently someone sent me and email entitled What Is Black Privilege? It contained some interesting observations, a couple of which I will pass along because they are so appropriate to where we find ourselves today with the riots, disruptions, propaganda, etc. One noted: Black privilege is being able to make insensitive comments about other races and not being called out for it (as white folks are). Another noted: Black privilege is having the establishment lie to cover up problems in your community or protect you from criticism (part of the Establishment being the “news” media). There were more, but you get the idea, and sadly, most of these happen.

Just yesterday morning (5/4/15) I read an article on http://www.theeconomiccollapseblog.com by Michael Snyder which stated in part: One of the things that is being ignored by many in the mainstream media is the fact that one of the key organizers of the Baltimore protests is a former national chairman of the New Black Panther Party named Malik Shabazz. These days he is president of an organization known as Black Lawyers for Justice, but he is still definitely up to his old tricks. Why didn’t the “news” media see fit to tell us that? You can bet the farm that if some white guy was out organizing protests and he had been a former member of the KKK it would have been all over the front pages of the papers from Bangor to East Porkchop! But because Comrade Shabazz is a former member of the Marxist Black Panthers, that fact just gets omitted. Of course to tell people that would give the game away and that’s the absolute last thing the “news” media is interested in.

Shabazz was interviewed by the New York Times. No surprise there. And in that interview he prattled on about how he was only trying to encourage civil disobedience and not violence, but then he wasn’t surprised when the violence happened because people here haven’t received justice. To which Mr. Snyder replied in his article: If you are marching for justice you don’t throw objects at random bystanders, loot stores or attack vehicles that are just driving through the area. But all those things happened on Saturday night. So all of this wasn’t really about “justice”–it was about exercising your “black privilege” because you know you are not going to be called on the carpet for anything you have done. You’ve got a free pass–“Don’t collect the $200, but don’t go to jail either–just raise hell!” “Burn baby, burn!” Snyder noted that even some of the pastors were inflaming the tensions, and when you take the trouble to check out the backgrounds of some of the pastors who have been part of the “civil rights” movement you can see why. If some of these so-called “shepherds of the flock” are not Red, then they are very deep pink.

So we have the usual leftist black radicals (and some white ones who wear coats and ties that we are not being told about) causing the same racial conflagration they have been pushing for decades. Part of the Marxist class struggle technique is the division of the races (classes) and they have become quite adept at exploiting that. And so, on the street level we have this concern, but at the Ruling Elite level, they have yet another concern.

Hillary Clinton is supposed to be the next president and they have to make sure that little endeavor goes forward, lest their agenda be knocked into the proverbial cocked hat. However, Hillary has gotten lots of negative publicity of late. It’s been so bad that even the prostitute press can’t cover it all up and so it sits out there–like a rotten egg on the national stomach–presently souring what is supposed to be a smashing success for Hillary next year and it isn’t at all possible to sweep all of it under the media rug. The pile under the media rug would be as big as the Matterhorn, and even with media complicity it would be obvious. So, what to do?

What’s a good way to get people’s minds off Hillary and on to other things so they’re not still meditating on Benghazi or cattle futures? Anyone remember those cattle futures?  Someone must, because there’s lots of really negative stuff out there about Hillary and what dubious “benefits” her presidency would provide (much of it all too true). Be thankful for the alternate media. Again, what to do?

How about a few riots? You know–the whole nine yards–destruction of property, looting, some black “martyr” who has been offed (if you don’t look too close) by the police and then some marches, demonstrations, lots of racialist rhetoric (and black privilege exercised) and you go from there. You just get people all worked up about this and who even remembers Hillary and what a disaster for the American people she will be as president. A long time until the election you say? Who says the riots and demonstrations are all over now? Who says all this destruction will not continue in other venues for the next eighteen months and who says that Hitlery (oops, Hillary) won’t by then have been fed by the Establishment the “wonder solution” to all this that she can use as a campaign promise? “Elect me and you won’t have to wait for your pie in the sky by and by, you can have it now. Those nasty Republicans only want you to eat cake, but I’ll feed you the real goods–a bigger slice of the national pie.”

And so the Marxist mentalities that run Sodom on the Potomac (who are not all Communist Party members) are killing two birds with one stone–promoting racial animosity that will give them the opportunity to eventually restrict our liberties even more, while at the same time running interference for Hillary so she can quietly slide into the White House in the next election with most of the negative publicity all but forgotten. Black privilege will have been massaged and white culture will have had yet another nail driven into its coffin. Hey, Comrades–is this a plan or what???

What the “News” Media Isn’t Telling Us About Baltimore

By Al Benson Jr.

Originally I had not planned to comment on this situation. There have been enough like it recently, all pretty much following the same pattern, that you know someone’s agenda is at work here. We’ve all heard this scenario before—the “innocent” Trayvon Martin, the “innocent” gentle giant in Ferguson, Missouri that just happened to be robbing a store when apprehended and now we have another “innocent,” Freddie Gray, who just happens to have a rap sheet as long as your arm. The innocence of all these “victims” is simply amazing and the planned (yes I said planned) moral indignation over all these is something to behold—unless you realize that the indignation over all of it is orchestrated.

I have often wondered—if these had all been white folks that had suffered these things, would there be the rioting in the streets and the willful destruction of private property? In some cases there might be some, but not to the extent that we observe in these situations. Let me state here that I do not condone police brutality against anyone—lawful restraint against anyone resisting arrest, yes, but brutality, no. Having said that, I feel there is much more involved than “police brutality.” And, as usual, our intrepid “news” media is telling us almost none of what we should be aware of and is parading the same old bugaboos of “white racism” and “white privilege” out there as some sort of exoneration for all the black destruction.

According to www.allenbwest.com  the population of Baltimore is 622,000. Of this number 63% are black. Now the “news” media spin on this is usually that those who occupy positions of “white privilege” are busily lording it over the 63% who are black, except in Baltimore the mayor, the states attorney, the police chief, and the city council president are all black, and 48% of the city police force is black. So the “white privilege” trial balloon isn’t going to fly here because most of the city government is in the hands of blacks. So they can’t blame this one on “whitey” although to give them their due, they will make a valiant effort.

Allen West (who is black) stated: “Everyone wants to have an honest conversation about race, so let’s us endeavor to do just that. Now, of course, when you speak the hard truth about race issues in America—and not just the liberal progressive talking points–and you’re white, you’ll be branded as a racist. And if you’re black, well, y’all just watch the comments below and see the denigrating drivel.”

But there are several leftist agendas at work here. The Marxist types excel at killing two birds with one stone while many on the right have not even found the birds yet. Someone sent me an email just last evening, the headline for which was: “MSNBC’s Al Sharpton demands DOJ takeover of police nationwide”  The article starts out with this: ‘In a video posted Thursday by the Baltimore Sun, MSNBC host and longtime liberal activist Al Sharpton demanded that police departments across the country be taken over by the Department of Justice. He also said it would be necessary to fight states’ rights to do so. ‘We need the Justice Department to step in and take over policing in this country’ he said…We’re going to have to fight states’ rights in terms of closing down police cases’.” So, in other words, Sharpton wants the utterly corrupt Department of Justice, now, thanks to senate approval, under the control of Eric Holder’s flunky, Loretta Lynch, to take over police forces nationwide. If you think you’ve got corruption now, just wait until the Justice Department assumes control. Baby, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet! The DOJ has taken corruption to a new level! But Sharpton being a far-left ideologue you can expect nothing else from him. I don’t think his leftist scheme, if it’s really his, will totally float, but watch and see if the DOJ  doesn’t make some sort of limited move (as the first step) in this direction. And of course to do this, they have to fight states’ rights, which is anathema to all Marxist mindsets. So watch for some sort of federal takeover of even more local affairs. Now it will be up to the States to resist this stuff. Let’s see if they are up for it.

So now they’ve issued arrest warrants for six policemen in Baltimore who were involved in the arrest of  Freddie Gray. And if you want to discover what sort of sterling individual Mr. Gray was you can go to Snopes.com and look for the “Freddie Gray Rap Sheet.” Even Snopes has to admit this is true and there is a list of all the items Mr. Gray has been detained for over the years by the police. To put it bluntly, Mr. Gray was a drug pusher. That’s about as gently as you can say it. Now that doesn’t justify police brutality if there was any (and reports differ on that) but it does go to show that Gray was hardly the personification of Snow White! The Baltimore Police Department was well acquainted with Mr. Gray. He had been their guest on several occasions.

The lady that will be prosecuting the six officers is Marilyn Mosby, the state’s attorney. There was an article about her and this case in the  Baltimore Sun, written by Doug Donavan and Mark Puente for May 1. It goes into how the black community seems to think this woman is a female personification of Superman, able to bound over judicial edifices with a single leap. And although the article seems to be positive in regard to her, it does note a couple problems that just might cause some concern. Their article noted “She (Mosby) has ties to the Gray’s family attorney, William H. ‘Billy’ Murphy Jr., who donated $5,000 to her campaign and served on her transition committee.  And her husband, Nick,  serves on the City Council,  representing the area where Gray died. Just minutes before Mosby’s news conference, the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 3, the local police union, called for an independent prosecutor to handle the Gray case.  Among the union’s criticisms were Mosby relationship to Murphy and her marriage to a councilman.” In light of all this, I think the idea of an independent prosecutor sounds like a rational request.

And I am sorry, in spite of what happened, I cannot see the justification for all the wanton destruction of private property right in the neighborhood these folks live in. I watched a bit of some of the videos showing the protesters going around smashing in car windows and store windows—any excuse for the destruction of property. Although I have heard that those responsible for starting the rioting had been members of the New Black Panther Party. Such would not surprise me in the least. Now that many of them have destroyed the economic base in their own areas they will go to the federal government and demand “help” to get themselves up and going again, and no doubt, the feds will give it to them—so they can feel like martyrs for having fought the noble battle against “white privilege.” Nothing but far left agendas are being advanced through all of this and the left knows, via prior performances, that they can get crowds of blacks in the streets rioting on any given occasion. They are cannon fodder for the leftists and for some in the Establishment—both of which apply the “pressure from above and pressure from below” on the American middle class, at lease what’s left of it.

Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson (also black) had a revelatory article on www.wnd.com a few days ago and he made some penetrating comments about our situation today. He said: “Just think about the latitude blacks are given to express themselves—particularly on race issues.  Blacks can say whatever they want about whites with little fear of criticism or backlash. Black entertainers, members of the Congressional Black Caucus, black professors and other black public figures routinely denigrate and stereotype white people. Contrast that with the muzzle over whites.” Rev. Peterson feels today that white supremacy is a myth but black privilege is real.

So as we continue our “dialogue” about “race” with the black racialists in Washington this trend will continue. It’s still open season on white folks, particularly white Southern folks with a Christian heritage and a states’ rights heritage. All that must be destroyed so the New World Order of Black Marxism can assume control, or at least until the black Marxists finally figure out they are being used—and by then it will be too late.Freddie

Government Schools—the god that failed on purpose

By Al Benson Jr.

In the past I have commented on how most people view public schools, how many have commented on their gross failure to educate and I have stated that the public schools have really not failed—at what they were instituted to do—the dumbing down of our kids. At this they have been a smashing success.

What they have failed to do, and this is on purpose, is to educate the children committed to their charge. They continue to turn out graduates who don’t even know what century the War of Northern Aggression was fought in or who Hitler was, or who was president before our current Commissar took the office.

I am not saying that every public school teacher is a “bad” person or even that everyone working for a public school system is a bad person—I have a niece that is a public school teacher and she is well acquainted with many of the tragic problems in that system. There are lots of good folks that, in one way or another, work in the public school system and it’s not them that are evil—it’s the system itself and the agenda of the Educational Establishment in this country.

The main problem with the public, or government, school system is that its founders and true adherents have a messiah complex. The wish to replace the Triune God with their educational system—not to educate children, but to control and manipulate them—to make them into compliant little robots to be used by the New World Order as they deem fit. The mindset of those running the current governmental education establishment goes all the way back to the Tower of Babel—they are going to build a tower that reaches to Heaven and make a name for themselves and create a people that will do their will, not God’s.

Unfortunately “their will” is something most Christians and patriotic people wish to remain blissfully unaware of. “Don’t tell us that “right-wing stuff” we don’t want to be aware of all that. If we are we might have to assume some responsibility personally for our kids’ education, and that’s the absolute last thing we want.” Personal responsibility—ugh!!! Forget that—let the schools do it—and the public schools are only too happy to do it—at the expense of your kids’ souls!

Just recently, I came across an article on http://www.thearrowsoftruth.com titled The Rockefeller School System: Compulsory Indoctrination Camps for Social Control that was published back in November of 2012. The article stated: “The first federalized U.S. educaton boar was the 1870 founded NEA (National Education Administration) which quickly announced that countrywide school science courses must be restructured to teach ‘evolution’ as fact, not theory. Having gained a fair amount of pull in the NEA, in 1903, John D. Rockefeller created the GEB (General Education Board) in an effort toward ‘this goal of social control.’ Later, in 1923 he would also created the International Education Board providing over $20 million to promote education abroad. The Rockefeller, Carnegie and Ford groups have often funded (and thus steered) American education more so even than the government.” One thing you need to realize here from this statement is that these people are the “real government” that calls the shots and the people you thought you elected to office are often little more than political puppets being directed by the Rockefellers, Carnegies, Fords, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission and the Bilderbergers. That’s where the real power in this country lies—not in those you voted for—they are just the “house slaves” carrying out Massa’s orders, for which they get “house privileges” and assorted perks.

The article continues: “Reading through the papers of the Rockefeller Foundation’s General Education Board an endowment rivaled in school policy influence in the first half of the twentieth century only by Andrew Carnegie’s various philanthropies, seven curious elements force themselves on the curious reader: 1. There appears a clear intention to mold people through schooling. 2. There is a clear intention to eliminate tradition and scholarship. 3. The net effect of various projects is to create a strong class system verging on caste. 4. There is a clear intention to reduce mass critical intelligence while supporting infinite specialization. 5. There is clear intention to weaken parental influence. 6 There is clear intention to overthrow accepted custom. 7. There is a striking congruency between the cumulative purposes of GEB and the utopian precepts of the oddball religious sect, once known as Perfectionism, a secular religion aimed at making the perfection of human nature, not salvation or happiness, the purpose of existence. The agenda of philanthropy, which had so much to do with the schools we got, turns out to contain an intensely political component.” And this is a quote from the John Taylor Gatto book The Underground History of American Education.

And the article gives a short list of organizations funded by the Rockefellers. Some of them are: Atlantic Union, Council on Foreign Relations, Federation of World Governments, The Trilateral Commission World Affairs Council, United World Federalists. Notice any trends in this list? All of these groups in one way or another promote World government.

In his informative book The Rockefeller File which I believe can be found on the Internet, author Gary Allen noted comments by a former Baptist pastor, Frederick Taylor Gates, who had pastured a church in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Gates left that pastorate, was appointed secretary of the American Baptist Education Society, and, in that post, he championed a Baptist university in Chicago, which became the University of Chicago—one of the most leftist universities in the country. In 1889, Gates met John D. Rockefeller and became one of his advisors. Gary Allen has observed that: “Daddy Oilbucks (Rockefeller) put his assistant, Fred Gates, in charge of his General Education Board. Gates tipped the Rockefeller philosophy on education in the Board’s Occasional Paper No. 1: In our dreams we have limitless resources and the people yield themselves with perfect docility to our molding hands. The present educational conventions fade from our minds, and unhampered by tradition, we work our own good will upon a grateful and responsive rural folk.” Gives you the warm fuzzies doesn’t it?

Some commentators have claimed this quote was taken out of context and really doesn’t mean what it sounds like, but if “Rev.” Gates ended up as an advisor to Rockefeller then you have to know that this One World mindset about educational control is where he was coming from. Had it not been, then Rockefeller would have had no use for him. And you have to wonder, looking at the University of Chicago now, where the Baptists lost control. I recall reading a little book, years ago entitled How Red is the University of Chicago?

Allen also noted that “The Rockefeller and Carnegie foundations, which often had interlocking directorates and many times acted in unison, began in the early Thirties to back John Dewey and his Marxist educationists with enormous amounts of money.” This is the same John Dewey that had so much to do with shaping public education in this country, the man that was a signer of Humanist Manifesto 1. Check that one out on the Internet too, while you still can.

The thing to remember here is that those who ran these foundations and had a One World Government mindset are the very ones that financially helped to design the curriculum that most of us were taught in government schools, and they are still doing it. Your kids today are getting fed the same One World Swill we were fed in government schools. It was, and still is, anti-Christian, as it was intended to be from the beginning. You can have all the Christian teachers you want in public schools, but if they are forced to teach this stuff, whether knowingly or not, where is their Christian testimony? The sincere teachers and the kids have been sold down the river and are forced to partake of the One World outlook that goes all the way back to the Tower of Babel. I realize the folks, even Christians, that prefer to have their kids “educated” in this setting won’t be influenced by what I have written here, but at least they will not be able to say no one ever told them. Lots of folks over the past hundred or so years have told them and the fact that they are not listening in the main is one reason this country will be judged.

And, coincidentally, in this vein, Sam Blumenfeld and Alex Newman have just written a book called Crimes of the Educators: How Utopians Are Using Government Schools To Destroy America’s Children. This was published by WND Books in April of this year.

Has the Next President Already Been Chosen—and is the election just going through the motions?

By Al Benson Jr.

If you looked at the last two presidential “elections” and, upon sober reflection, decided it was all an elaborate sham, then you and I are on the same page. The Republican Establishment ran two pathetically weak candidates against the Democrat, who was also a pathetically weak candidate when separated from his teleprompter, but he and his teleprompter were supposed to win and so that’s how it worked out—all according to plan—and both parties played the game.

Now we are facing 2016 and another year of campaign fertilizer being thrown in our faces until we choke on it, and it’s all to fool the public into believing that we really have any say at all in who sits in the White (Red) House. That’s already been decided. All that remains to be decided is which candidate the Republican wing of the Establishment will let run against her to give the impression that there really was a presidential race, and the scam of “elected representation” will continue to be perpetuated until the public wakes up—if ever.

Just this evening I read an article on http://www.westernjournalism.com which had for a headline: “Here’s What Marco Rubio Just Said About Running For President Against Hillary.” The article noted one interesting thing. It told us that Rubio’s “…entry into national politics was supported by Jeb Bush…” Does that set off a few warning bells? It should. Rubio made the standard political statements about Hitlery, er, excuse me I meant Hillary, being a “leader from yesterday” as if that makes any difference. The Western Journalism article actually made it sound like there might be a real presidential race between Rubio and Hilldabeast, sorry, I meant Hillary. Someone way over on the far right called her “Hilldabeast” in an email I saw and it just sort of slipped out. I should know better, I guess. And if Western Journalism knows what’s really going on, so should they. One thing you are forced to say about these professional politicians, they are good actors. They could give anyone in Hollyweird a run for their Oscar money.

Also just read a brief article on http://www.nypost.com by Michael Goodwin for April 11, 2015. Mr. Goodman observed: “More than five years ago, a Clinton confidant matter-of-factly described to me Hillary’s Plan. She would resign as secretary of state after President Obama’s first term, write a book and then run for president again. Check, check, and, with Sunday’s official launch, check again. Her to-do list is complete. She stuck like glue to the Plan, which required years of misleading blabber from her and Bubba that she hadn’t decided about 2016.” Question is, was it her plan or somebody else’s?

This game has been awhile in the setting up, but it’s still a political game—and the loser, as always, is the befuddled American voter. What he gets from the “news” media about the election couldn’t even be classified as swill—it’s not that high-grade. But it keeps him ignorant if it’s all he has to go on and the “news’ media’s prime function is keeping the public ignorant.

There was an interesting article on http://www.infowars.com back on May 2, 2013 entitled “Bilderberg Kingmaker Kissinger ‘Jokes’ About President Hillary Clinton At Elite Gathering.” Now maybe he was “joking” but he was telling the right people what to look for. It was more than a joke, folks, if you understand those people. Kissinger said: “I want to tell Hillary that when she misses the office, when she looks at the histories of secretaries of state, there might be hope for a fulfilling life afterwards” and he added (another “joke) that he had “thought up all kinds of schemes to get around Constitutional protections that prevented him, as a foreign born citizen, from becoming president himself.” Well, Mr. Kissinger, it took awhile, but the Republican and Democratic establishments finally figured out how to do it with the current resident of the White House. Who really knows if he’s a citizen or not—and they’ll never tell—because if it ever turns out he isn’t, then they’ve set a precedent for future presidents.

And the Info Wars article also noted: “In recent data dumps by Wikileaks, dubbed the ‘Kissinger Cables,’ the Bilderberg stalwart is quoted as saying, ‘Before the Freedom of Information Act, I used to say at meetings, ‘the illegal we do immediately; the unconstitutional takes a little longer’.” The Info Wars article concluded: “Clinton’s campaign against Barack Obama during the 2008 Democratic primaries came to an end when she abruptly announced that she was to concede and suspend her campaign, following a secret meeting held with Obama, which in all likelihood took place at the Bilderberg Group conference in Chantilly, Virginia. Now, it seems, is Hillary’s time, however.” Now the unconstitutional takes no time at all—just get our current commissar to write out an Executive Order! The Establishment is always learning new ways to shaft the public. It’s what they live for.

Then, there was another Info Wars article for February 5, 2015 that continued in the same vein by stating: “Radio talk show host Michael Savage believes Massachusetts Republican and failed presidential candidate Mitt Romney was told by the global elite to step down as the Republican presidential candidate in order to allow Democrat Hillary Clinton to win the 2016 election.” I don’t know what Michael Savage thinks of Mitt Romney, but if this is true, it just shows what many of us have known literally for decades—that both parties work in concert toward a One World agenda and there is no real difference. Savage stated: “The Bilderbergs met in Davos, and the decision was made that Hillary Clinton will be the next president, Romney was doing too well in the polls, so they threw him out. They want to make sure that another Bush—or an incompetent moron like Rubio—will be chosen to lead the Republicans, to ensure that Hillary becomes president.” Savage feels that the elections are prearranged by the Establishment Elite, and “like a rigged horse race, the outcome is predetermined.” Given what I’ve seen in the last few elections, I can’t totally disagree with him.

So, if Michael Savage is correct, you can go vote, but it won’t make any real difference because we are going to get Hitlery (darn it, there I go again) no matter what, just like we got Obama, no matter what. I don’t personally think Romney was all that great and the fact that he’s in there taking orders from the elite shows that he, too, plays the game. I may not vote for president next year, and if I do it will be one of the third party candidates that I can, in good conscience, cast a vote for, knowing full well he won’t even come close, if he even gets a mention in the “news” media.

Folks, I would not spend lots of time trying to figure out who the next president will be. That’s probably already been decided unless the Lord intervenes and messes up the One Worlder’s agenda. And I wouldn’t spend lots of time following the race, on television or even on the Internet because if we spend too much time on that distraction we may not be paying enough attention to what the Establishment is doing to us in other more important areas, like the Second and Tenth Amendments or “Constitutional Conventions” or any of the other foolishness currently going on.

Where Was the Church All This Time?

By Al Benson Jr.

Back during the 1970s and 80s Francis Schaeffer wrote a whole series of books that catered to a broadly evangelical audience. I didn’t read all of them but I did read a few, and some of them, to be honest, left me a little flat. Dr. Schaeffer passed away in 1984, I believe, but toward the end of his writing career (which was only one part of his ministry) he wrote a couple books that seemed to me to indicate that something had awakened him to where the country and the church in this country were really at.

He wrote A Christian Manifesto in which he noted through biblical history how many people that the Lord had blessed had disobeyed their rulers because their rulers were acting in open defiance of God’s will. One Bible verse he noted in this aspect was Acts 5:29. This was in reference to Peter and the other apostles preaching about Jesus and His resurrection in Jerusalem. They had been forbidden by the Jewish religious establishment from doing this. They were dragged in front of the high priest and the council for this and the high priest asked them directly, as noted in Acts 5:28 “Saying, Did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach in this name? and, behold, ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this man’s blood upon us.” How conveniently they forgot their own statements, uttered in Matthew 27:25, when, after Pilate had washed his hands, they stated: “Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.” Remember that statement guys? Oh I realize you got the multitude to shout it, but it was your sentiment. Has it ever occurred to you that you got only what you asked for?

But in reply to the religious establishment’s command to stop preaching in Jesus’ name, Peter said: “We ought to obey God rather than men” (Acts 5:29). The Bible sets a precedent, regardless of how Romans 13 is misrepresented, that says there are certain places where it is the bounden duty of believers to resist and disobey government. If government commands you to do that which is contrary to God’s will, then you have to obey God rather than man.

Another interesting book that Dr. Schaeffer wrote toward the end of his life was The Great Evangelical Disaster. I had this on my shelf for years and never got to it, but in recent weeks I pulled it down and opened it and was surprised at how accurately Dr. Schaeffer had described what is going on in this country, and others, in our own day.

He wrote, in 1984 (the year is interesting) that: “Something happened during the last sixty years—something which cut the moral foundation out from under our culture. Devastating things have come in every area of our culture, whether it be law or government, whether it is in the schools, our local communities or in the family. And these have happened within the lifetime of many who are reading this book. Our culture has been squandered and lost, and largely thrown away. Indeed, to call it a moral breakdown puts it mildly. Morality itself has been turned on its head with every form of moral perversion being praised and glorified in the media and the world of entertainment.” And, at this point in time, you could add the federal government to that list. Sounds just like today doesn’t it? And this was written over thirty years ago. While I might not totally agree with Schaeffer’s timeline for all this (I think it started earlier) the thing is that he has seen the problem. He noted the great burst of freedom brought about by the Protestant Reformation, and he said: “The freedoms which grew out of this were tremendous; and yet, with the forms grounded in a biblical consensus or ethos, the freedoms did not lead to chaos” as much of our so-called “freedom” today does.

And Schaeffer noted, quite accurately, that: “Sixty years ago could we have imagined that unborn children would be killed by the millions here in our own country? Or that we would have no freedom of speech when it comes to speaking of God and biblical truth in our public schools? Or that every form of sexual perversion would be promoted by the entertainment media? Or that marriage, raising children, and family life would be objects of attack? Sadly we must say that very few Christians have understood the battle we are in. Very few have taken a strong and courageous stand against the world spirit of this age as it destroys our culture and the Christian ethos that once shaped our country.” He noted that this is a “life and death struggle over life on this earth.” He asked also “Why has the Christian ethos in our culture been squandered? Why do we have so little impact upon the world today? Is it not because we have failed to take the primary battle seriously?” He asked penetrating questions—questions that most Christians today do not even begin to want to deal with. Having to wrestle with these things would require Christian responsibility and much of the church today is not having any of that. Years ago I spent a goodly amount of time in an evangelical church and looking at the things those folks didn’t want to deal with was an exercise in futility. In most cases, for some of them, it was much easier to just put the messenger out of his misery than it was to deal with anything he said. I recall, one time, they had a guest preacher for one Sunday morning (he never got an invite to come back) and he told the congregation, quite plainly, some of the issues they needed, as Christians, to be aware of and he named names as to people and organizations that were contributing to the neutralization of Christianity. You could feel the discomfort in the congregation. They didn’t want to hear it. One man said, on the way out, “we don’t need any of this right wing stuff.” Yes, you did need it, but you didn’t want it and it wasn’t “right wing stuff” it was the truth! I told the preacher as I was leaving “You didn’t make any friends here today.” I agreed with his comments and there was one other lady there that was not unsympathetic, but his sermon covered territory evangelicals should have known about and didn’t want to be bothered with. The rest couldn’t get out fast enough!

Sadly, this is where most of the church is today. If you try to give them any truth you are some kind of a “right winger” or even worse yet, you are being “negative.” And that’s the most cardinal sin in evangelicalism today—being “negative.” Many Christians would much prefer a lot of “lovey-dovey” nonsense than having to deal with the truth—because the truth is often negative and history is often a real mess, and yet we have to deal with what is, not what we’d like to have.

What Dr. Schaeffer may not have recognized, (at least he didn’t write about it) is that much of the horrible downturn in our culture has not been by accident or by natural degeneration, though that has occurred.

Look at the history of the public school system in this country since its inception. It was the creation of Unitarians and socialists and they had a worldview that contributed to the cultural downturn due to their anti-Christian worldviews. I have always found it interesting that one of the first things the federal government did in the South after they were victorious in the shooting part of the War of Northern Aggression was to bring the public education system, replete with Yankee/Marxist teachers, into the South to “educate” the “rebels’ children.” This was cultural genocide, still being practiced today, and it’s a real downer when it comes to uplifting the culture. This was not by accident.

And even in the 20th century, when the Frankfurt School and John Dewey were putting the final socialist touches on American public education—where was the Church? Why didn’t they have some clue as to what was going on? Did they even care? Because it seems that they had no clue, we have the educational mess we have today and sadly, many Christians rush to defend that against such “primitive” concepts at Christian education and home schooling. Yet another example of many Christians coming down on the wrong side of history. Instead of defending what the Church was doing, though the Church didn’t do it perfectly, they opposed it and stood up for what Marx’s disciples were planning for their children. When the pastor of your church comes to your house and tries to talk you into putting your kids in public school instead of giving them a Christian education at home, then you have to realize that the Church has major problems!

So you will have to pardon me if I ask “where was the Church all this time?” It seems we’ve mostly been out to lunch for the past 150 years! Please understand, there are exceptions to this, but unfortunately, not enough. Not what there should be. The leadership in this country, in just about all areas, is at war with the Christian faith and their agenda is to destroy it—and maybe replace it with the Muslim faith. I have to wonder when the Christians will wake up and smell the coffee.

What Was the Abolitionist’s REAL Game?

By Al Benson Jr.

The radical Northern abolitionists before the War of Northern Aggression have always been painted in what passes for history books as a noble, self-sacrificing breed who would sacrifice even their lives to free the black man from slavery in the South. The South, in these same “history” (and I used that term loosely) books is portrayed as a land of benighted darkness which only the sacrifice of the dedicated abolitionist can penetrate—men of the caliber of 19th century terrorist John Brown. The “history” books look with favor on such men. So do those who write communist propaganda—and you often have to wonder if the two are the same. Interestingly enough, there were abolitionist societies in the South but these are never mentioned in the history books, at least not any I ever read.

The conclusion I draw from that fact is that the Southern abolitionists were not really radicals of the leftist stripe but the Northern abolitionists leaned in that direction. Hence they get good press while all others are ignored.

If you think that statement is a bit strong, all you need do is to look at some of the comments of William Lloyd Garrison, one of the foremost of the radical Northern abolitionists.

Garrison, writing in his newspaper The Liberator in 1837 stated: “The motto of our banner has been, from the commencement of our moral warfare, ‘our country is the world—our countrymen are all mankind.’ We trust that will be our only epitaph.” You have to admit that such a statement sounds strongly internationalist in character, but then Garrison goes on to say that, next to the overthrow of slavery, the cause of peace will command his attention. And he sums up by stating: “As our object is universal emancipation—to redeem woman as well as man from a servile to an equal condition,–we shall go for the rights of woman to their utmost extent.” So he goes from slavery, to “peace” to “women’s rights (feminism)” and all these are areas that, even today, are a fertile breeding ground for Marxist endeavor and propaganda.

In his book Wendell Phillips author Carlos Martyn has observed, in regard to abolitionism that: “Thus it was that the crusade against slavery inevitably led first to the movement in behalf of woman and then to the movement in behalf of labor.” And of course abolitionist (and apostate) Wendell Phillips was in the thick of all this. And Mr. Martyn also noted of Garrison that: “There were those among the Garrisonians, too, who had adopted every ism of the day. These they sifted into their Anti-Slavery utterances, and thus produced the impression that Abolitionism was the nucleus of every scatter-brain theory and Utopian enterprise. Mr. Garrison himself was a sinner in this respect.” Whether the abolitionists adopted some oddball ideas or not, there were those among their number who seemed to be guiding them in the same direction that the Marxists were taking—from slavery to feminism and “womens’ rights” to involvement in the labor movement to “peace.” Of course your average run of the mill “historian” today would say that this was all totally coincidental—no collusion here on anyone’s part at all. It all just “happens.” Interestingly enough, Mr. Martyn noted Wendell Phillips’ comments regarding the South. Wendell Phillips said, in a speech We have not only an army to conquer, but we have a state of mind to annihilate…When England conquered the Highlands, she held them—held them until she could educate them,–and it took a generation. That is just what we have to do with the South; annihilate the old South, and put a new one there. You do not just annihilate a thing by abolishing it. You must supply the vacancy. I don’t know about anyone else, but to me, it sounds like Wendell Phillips was advocating that Cultural Genocide be practiced on the South.

So, as you can see, the Cultural Genocide problem here in the South is not new. It’s been going on since before the War of Northern Aggression in some form or other, but intensified more after that war because that’s when the real push came, via “reconstruction” to change the South from the Old South to NO South!

What’s just as bad is that it seems that Northern abolitionists almost practiced a form of the class struggle technique on Southern folks in kind of a reverse form. By their blatant attacks on Southern slavery what they really managed to do was to unite Southerners, both slave owners and those who would never own a slave, into one solid group who felt, with justification, that their section of the country was being attacked. Donnie Kennedy has noted in his informative book Rekilling Lincoln that: “…even nineteenth century historians have noted the fact that the vicious attacks upon Southern slavery by radical abolitionists had a harsh, negative impact on the Southern abolition movement. In 1866, George Lunt of Massachusetts noted this negative consequence of radical abolition agitation: The States of Virginia, Kentucky, and Tennessee were earnestly engaged in practical movements for the gradual emancipation of their slaves. This movement continued until it was arrested by the aggressions of the abolitionists upon their voluntary actions. .. The abolitionists, however, refused to accept as impending fact, and insisted upon convicting as criminals those who were so well disposed to bring about the very result at which they themselves professed to aim. The consequences were such as might have been reasonably expected. Promised emancipation refused to submit itself to hateful abolition.

So, basically, the radical Northern abolitionist movement deep-sixed the Southern abolitionist movement that was working toward gradual emancipation and pushed all Southern folks into a mode of self-protection over concern for what the radical Northerners had planned for them—and what they had planned for them was Cultural Genocide. So I have asked myself, given the leftist nature of Northern abolitionism, if that was the real game of the Northern abolitionist movement. They weren’t so much interested in really getting rid of Southern slavery as they were in getting rid of any potential competition to their movement—because when the slavery question was settled—they had “other plans” for their movement. Donnie noted in Rekilling Lincoln, on page 65, that: “The radical abolitionists crying ‘freedom from slavery’ and denouncing the South as ‘defenders’ of slavery were, by design or by ignorance, completely overlooking the efforts of Southerners to reduce and ultimately end slavery.” In my opinion, it was by design. At least some of the leadership on the Northern abolitionist movement knew what they were doing and the effect it would have and they went ahead anyway because portraying the South as a nation of slaveholders, when 80% of them never owned a slave fit in with their agenda.

And, as historian Otto Scott noted, most people think that abolitionism died with the end of the War of Northern Aggression, but it didn’t because many of the Republicans in Washington were really abolitionists and all the historians did was to change their name from Radical Abolitionists to Radical Republicans. But the same Marxist worldview was still there—world “peace” the feminist movement, the labor union movement—it was all still in place, much of it to be worked out in the 20th century, and much of it still being pushed now.

“Reconstruction” is still in place. Now they call it Political Correctness. Cultural Genocide is still emphatically in place in the South. Now they call it the “new South” or “cultural diversity” or some other high-sounding title to cover up what it really is. And most people don’t realize what’s being done to them. The next phase of this game is to put down white folks and make them feel guilty for being white and this is going on all over the country. It’s part of national “reconstruction.” So stay tuned, folks, if you thought it couldn’t get any worse, you haven’t seen anything yet.
