Comrade Dewey and Cultural Genocide

by Al Benson Jr.

Cultural genocide, the planned and willful destruction of a culture (in this case a Christian culture), is accomplished in many ways. The orchestrated destruction of a culture is accomplished by the tearing down of the flags and symbols of that culture and the destruction of its historical monuments and the replacing of its names with others of a more socialist intent.

It is also accomplished by the mid-education and intentional dumbing down of the children of that culture so they know less than their grandfathers about their history, heritage, faith, or anything for that matter. This is often done via institutions of “learning” that are subtly used to, in effect, make children dumber than they would be otherwise, while taxing their parents to pay for the intentional ignorance.

Recently a friend in New England sent me a copy of a book by Samuel Blumenfeld and Alex Newman about public education in this country. It is titled, quite appropriately, Crimes of the Educators and it deals with the dumbing down process that goes on in what we charitably refer to as public, or government, schools.It was published just this year by World Net Daily and so is pretty up to date with what has been and is happening in those “schools” to which most folks, unfortunately, continue to send their children to be “educated.”

While Horace Mann (a Unitarian) was hailed in the 19th century as “the father of the common (public) schools, John Dewey was hailed in the early 20th century as the “father of progressive (socialist) education.” Blumenfeld (deceased only  this past June) has  written: “In the late 1800s, he (Dewey) and his socialist colleagues decided to embark on a long-range conspiracy to radically change America by imposing their own utopian version of a collectivist society…Dewey stated that the only way to undermine a capatalist system was to get rid of the emphasis primary schools placed on the development of high literacy and independent intelligence. Why? Because both of these sustained individualism. What was needed, they believed, was a new curriculum that emphasized socialization and taught children to read by w whole-word method that would lower the nation’s literacy level and make its children more amenable to collectivist values…They considered themselves peerless intellects and socialism a morally superior way of life.” However, Dewey was smart enough to realize that “…socialism could not be imposed on America by force. And so he told his followers that ‘change must come gradually’.” This was the classic Fabian socialist approach, and “The primary vehicle for this gradual change would be the public schools, where the dumbing-down process could be carried out without parents knowing what was being done to their children.”

Blumenfeld recognized that what Dewey was doing was cultural genocide and he said as much. “…Dewey’s plan was to impose on America a form of cultural genocide never before imposed on any nation. The way to do it was to disparage high literacy and to teach children to read by a method that would prevent them from achieving the kind of high personal literacy needed to develop their independent intelligence.”

Interestingly enough, Blumenfeld noted that Dewey’s mother had been a “devout Calvinist”  who had sought to instill in her son the doctrines of Calvinism, “which he then spent all his professional life trying to erase from his brain.”

Now consider this. Horace Mann ended up being a Unitarian who sought to do away with the Christian influence on education in New England. John Dewey ended up rejecting his mother’s Christian faith and trying to purge it from his memory. Both of these men were apostates–pure and simple. They both turned away from the Christian faith they had been raised in and they envisioned and worked for a public school system they could use to teach children the same apostasy they had embraced–without their parents being aware of it. Folks, this is the foundation of your public education system in this country. Stop and think about that as you blithely commit your children to the “tender mercies” of this system.

It sounds more than a bit devious to me. So much for the supposed “separation of church and state.” All you need do to get around that little foible is change the name of your religion, call it “science” and if you’ve dumbed enough people down already, you’re off to the races!

And people, especially in the South, wonder why public schools have so much problem with Confederate flags and symbols, many of which are Christian in origin. I would strongly urge people to get this book by Blumenfeld and Newman and begin to find out what goes on in “your” public schools (which were never really yours to begin with). Check out Amazon.com  This book is listed there.

Same Game, Different Players

by Al Benson Jr.

Have you ever gotten the feeling that when some event occurs that you’ve “seen this before someplace, that this isn’t the first time for this?” You can’t recall when or where this all happened before, but it’s somehow very familiar. Some might refer to this as deja vu , but it’s more than that. It’s really a repeated pattern, or maybe a repeated agenda might be a more appropriate term.

Recently, someone forwarded an article to me written in 2011 and posted on http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org  on September 26th of that year. The headline for the article read: “Immigrants Want Cross Removed from Swiss Flag.” Note that the headline did not specify who the “immigrants” were, but the article was forced to.

It began: “An immigrant group based in Bern has called for the emblematic white cross to be removed from the Swiss national flag because as a Christian symbol it ‘no longer corresponds to today’s multicultural Switzerland. Ivica Petrusic, the vice president of Second@s Plus a lobbying group that represents mostly Muslim second generation foreigners in Switzerland…says the group will launch a nationwide campaign in October to ask Swiss citizens to consider adopting a flag that is less offensive to Muslim immigrants.” Talk about gall, this is it! Move to someone else’s country and then chide them because they don’t do things your way and change their national culture to suit you. Has anyone given a thought to the not-so-remote possibility that this might be construed as Cultural Genocide?

In an interview at that time with a Swiss newspaper Aarguer Zeitung Petrusic noted that the cross had a Christian background and while the Christian roots of Switzerlalnd ought to be “:respected” it is also “…necessary to separate church and state because present day Switzerland “…has a great religious and cultural diversity.One has to ask if the State wants to continue building up a symbol in which many people no longer believe.” Does any of this sound familiar–separation of church and state, the use of symbols that many don’t believe in any longer? Are you beginning to connect some of the dots here? How many have heard almost identical rhetoric recently in regard to Confederate symbols and flags? The rhetoric could, literally, have been transported from one country to the other and, with minor changes, that may be the case. Which, for me, would occasion the question–how much real difference is there between the Muslim mindset and that of the NAACP?

Both are practitioners of Cultural Genocide, and work to see it practiced not only on the present generation but on future generations yet to come. If there were an ounce of genuine diversity in either of these groups they would not have that much of a problem with the flags and symbols of other cultures because that would represent true diversity, whether you agreed with all of them or not. The best you can say for these groups is that they give lip service to a pretended diversity while they really practice Cultural Genocide on any who dare to disagree with their agendas. The fact is that, in both cases, they seek to eradicate flags and symbols they don’t agree with and an astute person should be able to recognize that they are not about diversity–they are about changing the historical makeup of any country or group they do not agree with. They are, in effect, trying to culturally murder those they disagree with, most especially if they are Christians. We are not supposed to be smart enough to figure this out and we are supposed to be conned by their “diversity” chatter until we have sold out our faith, history, and heritage and accepted theirs in its place. A good description of Cultural Genocide–destroy your faith, enshrine theirs!

We have got to be discerning enough to recognize this and resist it, whether it be in Switzerland, the rest of Europe, or this country. We dare not remove Christian symbols just because other cultures don’t “like” them or are “offended” by them. If we do, we make ourselves like those Jesus described in Mark 4:17.

I have said this before and I still believe it holds true–that all this talk about “racism” being the result of Confederate symbols and because of that wanting to do away with those symbols, is promoted by those who want to remove any and all Christian symbols and the idea that the Christian faith had any effect on the South. If they are able to lay this major guilt trip on the South to the point where its folks won’t stand up and defend their flags and symbols, you can imagine where they will go from there. Christian crosses beware!

You have to understand that those people, whether Muslims, the NAACP, the Southern Poverty Law Center, or whoever, have, as part of their agenda the total destruction of your Christian faith, your history, culture, heritage, and ultimately–YOU! If they can rob you of your faith, heritage and culture, then they will have stolen all these from your children and grandchildren as well, and your descendants will eventually belong to them, because “He who controls the past controls the future.”

It Can All Hang Out In Fort Smith Public Schools But the Confederate Flag

by Al Benson Jr.

The city of Fort Smith, Arkansas may be familiar to many people. It has been pictured in many Western movies. It is the city where Judge Isaac Parker, the “hanging judge” presided over his court. Judge Parker sentenced over 70 people to hang during his judicial career, and from what I have read over the years, they probably deserved it. Others who probably deserved it and didn’t get hung, through lawyers intervening in their cases one way or another. One movie I saw years ago, “True Grit” had one of Judge Parker’s marshals, played by John Wayne, referring to the legal representatives in Fort Smith as “pettifogging lawyers.”

I’ve only been to Fort Smith once, back in the 1970s, but I remember it as a distinctly Southern town. But that was then, not now. That insidious political disease known an Political Correctness (in reality it’s Cultural Marxism) has quietly seeped into many places in the South to the point where often you can hardly tell you are in the South anymore.

Suffice it to say that the public school system in Fort Smith has now imbibed in Cultural Marxism in regard to Confederate symbols like so many other places. Given the history of the public school system I guess we really shouldn’t be surprised. Untortunately, I am afraid that many who should know the real history don’t, and so they climb aboard the dumbed-down bandwagon also.

According to the Times Record a local attorney, Joey McCutchen (they aren’t all bad) is suing the Fort Smith School Board because of their decision to remove the Confederate flag, the “Dixie” fight song, and the school mascot from Southside High School in Fort Smith.

According to the Times Record article: “The move, according to a statement from the school district came after ‘giving great consideration to the continuing impact of perceived symbols of racism on the community, state, and nation’.” So we are removing all Confederate symbols all across the country now because they are “perceived symbols of racism.” They don’t actually have to be “racist” symbols–all they have to do is to be “perceived” as that and that’s more than enough for the usual knee’jerk reaction from all the politically correct types stepping out from under their leftist rocks.

McCutchen is suing the school board on behalf of a Fort Smith resident, Curtis Sorrells, and the suit cites violation of the open meetings provision of the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act.  The suit said that the publicized agenda for the June 23 School Board Committee of the Whole meeting called only for a closed meeting for discussion of Superintendent Benny Gooden’s yearly performance.  The purpose of this notice was to lead members of the public and media into believing that the meeting was solely to discuss a personnel issue and that the meeting would not be open to the public.”

It was at this closed meeting according to 5newsonline.com that “members voted to recommend changing Southside High School’s mascot and fight song. Fort Smith attorney Joey McCutchen filed the lawsuit claiming the school board violated the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act by holding a committee vote without notifying the public.” Well, yes, if you are going to work for the cultural demise of a large group of your students you obviously don’t want to do it openly. McCutchen said: “The school board did not say one word about why they were for or against, and that is concerning, so I think we, the voters, need to come out. We need to get a school board that will engage us in the process because that’s what our government stands for.” Actually it may be what government used to stand for. Nowadays it stands for whatever it can get away with! One Confederate flag supporter said “I’m tired of all the political bull.” Friend, you better hang onto your Confederate flag because all this ain’t going away any time soon.

We have to understand that all these incidents, and so many have been reported that you can’t cover them all, are all part of one fabric–one agenda–and most of these public schools are just itching to find a reason, any reason, to ban Confederate symbols of any kind. The only thing that will stop them is a massive turnout of local citizens protesting what they are trying to do, citizens telling them that if they remove Confederate symbols then their children will no longer attend that school but will find educational alternatives. They’d be better off finding educational alternatives anyway, but that’s the kind of thing school boards might respond to, as most local school districts get federal funding based on how many students attend their schools and if a particular school ends up losing 75-100 students that will adversely affect what they get from the feds. They can understand that.

The Fort Smith situation shows us a couple things. For one, there are some decent lawyers out there who do try to do the right thing. I have known, over the years, a handful of Christian lawyers who do strive to make their faith part of their law practice.

For another thing, we should start checking out on the Internet the number of these cases that have shown up since the Charleston shootings. I’ve done some of that and, believe me, they are legion and they all seem to follow a similar pattern, which means they are all part of a preconceived agenda. Hence they are not, in any way, locally spontaneous. All the people involved in different communities may not all know one another, but there is a common thread that runs through all these attempts at banning anything Confederate, whether it be in schools, whole towns, or wherever. These people are all operating off the same blueprint. So you have to ask–where did the blueprint come from?

As the Times Record article noted, Confederate symbols are perceived symbols of racism. That in no way makes the perception accurate, but then, the leftists and those who finance them really don’t care about that anyway. Their aim is to get people thinking in a certain direction that serves their purpose. Whether that direction is accurate or not (and it usually isn’t) makes not one iota of difference.

That this is a campaign of ethnic cleansing by the left should be apparent by looking at those who support it, the NAACP and the Southern Poverty Law Center, along with a host of lesser leftist luminaries.  No one in their right mind could ever consider such groups as “objective” or “middle of the road” no matter what the “news” media tells us. So start checking out some of these outfits that promote ethnic cleansing and cultural genocide in regard to Confederate history and culture. You won’t like what you find if you do the homework. And when you do find it, you should heed the biblical admonition in Ephesians 5:11 and expose it.

Ken Burns’ Impressively Shallow “Civil War” series–conclusion

by Al Benson Jr.

I have been informed that Mr. Burns’ update for his “Civil War” series has been on public television this week (probably for the first rebroadcast of many) so I wanted to conclude my comments about it during this week. As readers can probably deduce from my comments in the first article, I have significant disagreements with Mr. Burns’ worldview.

One thing that bothered me was the way in which he dealt with some of the personalities, notably Stonewall Jackson.  In my original Christian News article back in October of 1990 I stated: “Other things in this series bothered me. Stonewall Jackson, one of the South’s ablest generals and a devoted Christian gentleman, was labeled  as a ‘cold-eyed killer, unloved by his men and fond of slaughter. I’m no expert on Jackson (though I have read two or three books about him) but I’ve read enough to know that such a description is utter hogwash!  Jackson’s Christianity was couched in terms that made him appear to be a religious fanatic. Robert E. Lee was dealt with somewhat more charitably, but probably because his own devotion as a Christian is so well-known that, like George Washington, he cannot be vilified with impunity.” (At least that was the situation when I wrote the original article. In the fanatical political correctness now afoot in the land I’m not so sure that norm holds anymore.)

“The series was very will done, artistically, with skillful use of old photos of the period, along with background music and sound effects of that time. All this was blended together in such a way as to make it all very watchable, particularly if you happen to be a history buff. All you had to watch out for were the conclusions drawn from the series.”

“The part of the series that dealt with the battles was well done and probably mostly accurate. The horrible bloodiness of the conflict was noted and not glamorized, and that was good.  Having visied several of the battlefields noted in the series, I would have to say that, historically, that was the best part of the series.” (Although now I understand that the National Park Service has gone around and changed all the plaques to state the the reason the war was fought was only over slavery, and that’s not good because it is totally erroneous. Slavery was one reason for the War, among many, and not the main reason no matter what these politically correct “historians” try to shove down your throats.)

“The program hinted at the fact that, after two years of ‘Civil War” Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, not out of a concern for slaves, but mainly as a political move, a ‘noble’ reason for the conflict to continue. Other historians have said it with more authority, though.”

“The final episode  dealt with the collapse of the Confederacy, Lincoln’s assassination, and the remainder of the lives of some well-known ‘Civil War’ figures. The birth of the Ku Klux Klan was mentioned, but NOT ONE WORD was said about the “reconstruction” period specifically, one of the most shameful periods in our history. That part of the picture was totally ignored. Down the memory hole if you will!”

“One thing admitted in this series was that the War Between the States changed the course of our history. One narrator in the series said we were never the same country after the war.  He seemed to feel that the change was for the better.” (Looking at what we have to deal with in our day, I’m not so sure of that. I think, in many ways, it’s worse.) “Another speaker summed it up by saying that, before the war, when the United States were spoken of, it was in the plural form ‘The United States are’ after the war the singular term  ‘The United States is’ came into usage. So much for the rights of and our recognition of individual states. These were swallowed up by a strong national government. Due to apostasy in this country (and most  of our troubles can be traced back to that cause) the War Between the States was truly the American Revolution (and our French Revolution) a revolution that most God-fearing Americans, both North and South lost!  Most have not realized that even unto this day.  Slaves were not freed in the truest sense of the word.  Care and ownership was just transferred from plantation owners to politicians who had big plans to use ex-slaves as a gigantic voting block  to keep them (the politicians) in power.  Many even said as much, though naturally, with less offensive terminology.”

“One of the concluding narrations was given by a lady “historian” who went so far as to say that as long as we have the downtrodden and the homeless on the streets the Civil War is never really over. One might translate that to mean “until the federal government is willing to provide cradle to the grave security for all citizens (socialism) the Civil War goes on!” And don’t we hear echoes of this same mantra today?

I have to agree with Mr. Burns on one point–the War never really has ended, but I don’t agree with his reasons. It has not ended because the Yankee/Marxist regimes that inhabit Washington have determined that the South and its Christian heritage and culture must be destroyed and they will not discontinue their war on us until they have accomplished that. We need to wake up and realize that. This latest planned and orchestrated attack on all things Confederate should be a wake-up call to Southern folks and all honorable folks everywhere as to the fact that the Ruling Elite expects you to surrender your history, faith, and culture to their minions and they will fight you until you do. Lets make sure they have a long, long fight!

The Political Class Will Sell You And Your Heritage Out

by Al Benson Jr.

Years ago I recall hearing a statement, the insightfulness of which I did not grasp at the time. A man in the political arena, back in the 1920s, said: “The first, foremost function of a politician is to get re-elected. Whatever else he may do after that is splendid redundance.” That statement perfectly describes the political class, both in our day and in many previous decades.

There was a time when men ran for office out of a sense of duty or of giving something back to the community because they had been materially blessed. Those men were statesmen. True statesmen are nearly extinct today, a vanishing breed. Unfortunately they have been replaced with politicians, the “political class” whose total agenda is all about getting elected or re-elected. They have been convinced that selling out their constituency for the “good” of the nation is their highest calling–if it will get them re-elected, or better yet, if it will make them candidates for higher offices.

Let’s face it, most of these people harbor secret ambitions of being president. Little do some of them realize that, to gain that coveted office, they would have to sell their souls to the Ruling Elite as well as he who instigates the Ruling Elite (1 Peter 5:8). But in order to gain the fame (and fortune) that goes with it, most are more than willing. Which fact makes then totally useless to the people that voted for them.

I have watched with both interest and disgust, to see how the denizens of the political class reacted to the recently created attacks on the Confederate flag across the country. Most of them were quite predictable. They sensed that, in the region of the District of Corruption, Confederate flags have been anathema for about 150 years now and so if they were ever going to progress politically in the District of Corruption they learned early that they would have to disavow that flag as strongly as possible. While the Confederate flag has been described as “the flag tyrants hate” which is true, it is also the flag that potential political tyrants hate.

The presidential race for 2016 has been, thus far, to say the least, interesting. There are presently more people running for president as Republicans than there are people in some towns in Colorado. And the Democrats are not much better except that their candidates are even loonier than the Republicans. Donald Trump is saying all the right things for the Republicans, but who really thinks the Elite will let him be president. Hillary was the Bilderbergers’  candidate of choice for president and it looked like a done deal until this fuss over her emails came up. Now they may have to have another meeting to decide whether to keep her or deep six her. Do I think Hillary will end up being prosecuted for her email indiscretions? Don’t make me laugh! And can you picture Joe Biden as president? Really, now!

However, watching the “conservative” Republicans parade their political correctness regarding Confederate symbols is something to behold. Did I think they’d do anything else? Not hardly. When Governor Nikki Haley curled up and genuflected at the alter of Cultural Marxism and couldn’t get the Confederate flag down fast enough, she set the tone for most of the other “conservative” Republicans. The Governor of Alabama followed almost immediately, and the Republicans gleefully joined the Democrats in the ethnic cleansing of the South that is still in full swing, even though the “news” media isn’t mentioning it quite as much right now.

There was an article in the Charlotte Observer for August 23rd which said: “The timing of Haley’s successful call to remove the Confederate flag from the S.C. State House–just as the 2016 presidential primary fight ramps up–has racheted up talk about the South Carolina governor’s vice presidential prospects…Today, Haley is speaking to national party groups and meetings of top conservatives. She is appearing on national television news programs. And, next week, Haley will head to Washington, D.C. to speak at the National Press Club on ‘the New South.’  Haley has gained a great deal from the flag removal, University of Virginia political scientist Larry Sabato said. ‘It really put her on the radar screen’.” Of course Haley says she isn’t paying attention to any of that. The heck she isn’t! That’s what it’s all about folks. Just sell out your constituencies’ history and heritage and the Ruling Elite inside the Beltway and in New York City will love you for it. It shows them what you are willing to do to gain higher office, and they know you can be had. It shows them you really have no moral compass, no real personal, heartfelt convictions about anything except getting elected and that’s what they love.

Folks, some of what has gone on in recent weeks regarding the Political Class should make this apparent to us, if we are doing any thinking at all over and above who’s on the next Reality Show. Most, the vast majority of politicians, from Washington down through our state capitals and even into our cities, really hate our history, heritage and faith, and what they will try to do is to destroy all three–all the while claiming they are promoting “reconciliation” and “racial healing” because they think we are too stupid to grasp what is going on or what they are doing to (not for) us. This is one reason we must resist their efforts. Not only is what they are trying to do to our culture wrong–it’s evil–and what’s worse they know that–but they plan to do it anyway because it’s what’s on the agenda.

Also, this means, if we are ticked off enough at what they are doing to us, we need to make a major reassessment regarding how we vote next year–and that doesn’t mean just changing from Democrat to Republican because the Republicans are, supposedly, the “conservatives.”  It’s the “conservatives” in the Republican Party that have been foremost in selling out our flags, history and heritage. Stop and realize that!  So we have to begin to reassess what we are going to do regarding them. And we better start dogging their trail at town meetings and hold them to account for whatever they do regarding our heritage.

There’s lots more going on with this issue over their attempted cultural genocide of our history, heritage, and faith, than I can cover in one article. Lord willing, I will continue in this vein as able.

(Only) “Black Lives Matter”

by Al Benson Jr.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that with the emerging “Black Lives Matter” Movement the only lives that matter to those people are black lives. All the rest are simply beneath mention because they are not black.

There is even a Black Lives Matter webpage out there and they are not hesitant in the least to tell you what they stand for, which is the typical leftist line. Are you surprised? Their website states, in part: “Black Lives Matter affirms the lives of Black queer and trans folks, disabled blacks, black undocumented folks, folks with records, women and all black lives along the gender spectrum. It centers those that have been marginalized within black liberation movements.  It is a tactic to (re)build the Black Liberation movement.” You have to give those people credit–they tell you right up front where they are at and you, if you are awake at all, can decide whether you want to support what they stand for or not.

Back in 2008 there was commentary on the Free Republic website which stated, again, in part: “Bill Ayers’ Weather Underground were allied with the Black Liberation movement (Rev. Wright’s thing) in an attempted communist overthrow of the US government.  This powerful connection is NOT being made by any of the popular conservative commentators. In fact, they are still at it today, only this time they plan to use the election process to achieve the same end.:” And in 2008 that’s exactly what they did, and it worked. We are living with the results today. Do you like them?

So leftist “black liberation” is still alive and well in the “Black Lives Matter” Movement.  And thought it may take some folks awhile to figure this out, it really shouldn’t. However, our power of discernment has been so watered down thanks to our public “education” system it’s a wonder we can figure out where the sun comes up anymore.

InfoWars.com  posted an article on their website for August 17th about a group of  Black Lives Matter people who tried to stop a Confederate flag rally in Broward County, Florida.  Around 200 Confederate flag supporters came to Plantation Park for a flag rally and were met there by a vulgar group of Black Lives Matter individuals that attempted to block their way.

The Black Lives Matter group carried all manner of profane signs, some of which read “F–Your Heritage” and “God Hates Flags” among the rest. Interestingly enough, I’ve heard some Christians make the same statement about God hating Confederate flags.  I wonder if the Christians who make such statements would feel at home in the Black Lives Matter crowd. Their profanity-laced signs and speech were so gross that I will refrain from further comment except to say that much of what they displayed was lots worse that what I’ve recorded here. That should give you some idea as to the content of their character. Yet how many ignorant and uninformed Christians will stick up for this profane crowd and condemn Confederate flags? Too many unfortunately!

And the InfoWars article further noted: “While asserting that the Confederate Flag represents the justification of violence against black people,  some Black Lives Matter protesters were also waving anarcho-communist black and red flags. Communism was responsible for the deaths of around 94 million people in the 20th century alone. There’s a contradiction to be found in there somewhere.” Most definitely, but then, these folks have an agenda to fulfill and so glaring contradictions don’t really matter to them and they hope most folks won’t notice anyhow.

In a recent article on this blogspot I commented that, if you noticed, it always seemed to be that the Black Lives Matter people used red and black paint whenever the defaced a Confederate monument or gravestone. Now you know why. And during their “counter-protest” some of these Black Lives Matter people (you can hardly call them ladies and gentlemen) ended up wiping their ample posteriors  with Confederate flags. Some black activists have even offered to defecate on US flags for $6.00 a pop! Anyone naive enough to think that you can sit down and dialogue with people like these is a prime candidate for induction into the Tooth Fairy Hall of Fame.

Unfortunately, for all their hate and profanity the Black Lives Matter people will realize, too late, that all they are doing is acting as cannon fodder for the New World Order clique–and for the New World Order people, black lives are just as meaningless as white lives, Hispanic lives, American Indian lives–any lives.

Now it appears that there is a big fuss over the news that one of the leading Black Lives Matter activists is not even black, or at best, only part black. If this is true it may be subtle evidence that the Black Lives Matter Movement is already in the process of being co-opted by the Establishment. And once the Establishment has used it to defend and protect sodomites and trash Confederate symbols and flags it may have outlived its usefulness and may well end up on the trash heap of leftist history.

In the meantime, Confederate and Southern heritage groups must continue to resist the efforts of these leftist “useful idiots” who are being used by the Establishment to trash our faith and culture.

Mary’s Brother Wants To Remove General Lee

by Al Benson Jr.

Some of you may remember Mary Landrieu, the former senator from Louisiana who was such a gung-ho supporter of Obamacare and other socialist schemes. Her continuing support for the current Marxist regime finally cost her the senate seat she had held forever, or so it seemed.

I haven’t kept up with Mary’s daily activities since she departed from the “District of Corruption” so I don’t know what pies she’s got her fingers into now, but you can bet, knowing the socialist mindset, she ain’t sitting home knitting doilies. Neither is her brother, Mitch, the current mayor of New Orleans. It seems that brother Mitch has jumped on the leftist bandwagon in regard to removing Confederate monuments in New Orleans.

So far here in Louisiana we had been spared much of the ethnic cleansing that has been going on in so many other Southern states. I’ve enjoyed watching the pickup trucks in my area with big Confederate Battle Flags on them. I’ve seen more in the past 3 weeks than in the almost thirteen years we’ve been here and there was a big Confederate flag rally over in West Monroe last July 14th. So the sentiments of average folks are for keeping the flag and the monuments.

However, you have to realize that Mayor Mitch and the other socialists in Louisiana are not average folks. Average folks don’t have an agenda. The socialists do–and a large part of that agenda is the wanton destruction of Southern and Christian culture. And you will get that from some of these socialists that even go to church. Church is a good cover for socialists and it fools lots of folks who should know better but don’t. I never forgot the saying from years ago (and it’s still true) “not many preachers become Communists but lots of Communists become preachers.”

At any rate, Mayor Mitch (who knows if Sister Mary is helping or not) has decided that his opening salvo against Confederate heritage will be fired at Lee Circle, one of the oldest monuments now standing in New Orleans. I’ve seen a picture of it and it’s a beautiful monument with General Lee standing at the top.

The Human Relations Commission in New Orleans supposedly makes it unlawful to discriminate on the grounds of age, color, creed, gender identification, gender or sex, marital status, national origin, ancestry…disability, race, religion, and so on. According to a communication from the Sons of Confederate Veterans: “The Human Relations Commission is holding a public hearing to discuss the question of whether to remove Robert E. Lee Statue, PGT Beauregard statue, Battle of Liberty Place monument, Jefferson Davis statue.  That will open the door and set a precedence to changing all things Confederate later.” You see, in this case, the Human Relations Commission has chosen to ignore the “national origin/ancestry” part of their charge when it comes to Confederate monuments. All that stuff applies to everyone but white folks it would seem.

The SCV communication continued: “The New Orleans Human Relations Commission will hold a public hearing on Thursday, August 13, 2015 at 6 pm in the City Council Chamber, 1300 Perdido Street on code section 146-611–Removal from public property by request from the New Orleans City Council, evaluation and recommendation: Robert E. Lee statue, PGT Beauregard statue, Battle of Liberty Place monument, Jefferson Davis statue. If you would like to submit a comment, please complete the feedback form below.  The comment period will close at 5 pm on Tuesday, August 11.  Comments received before 5 pm on August 11 will be included as part of the official public record…When you leave your comments, be polite and Southern. Be sure that you cite discrimination based upon heritage (one of the criteria) The New Orleans Human Rights Laws make it unlawful to discriminate in.” 

It would be good if lots of Confederate-minded folks in the New Orleans area could make it to that August 13th hearing because you can bet the farm that the leftists will be there to deep six your Confederate heritage and Christian culture if they can get away with it. Remember–their agenda is your destruction.
