The “I’m Offended” Movement is Cultural Marxism in Action

by Al Benson Jr.

I have been watching this game of minorities and others being “offended” at just about anything and everything anyone else says or does. It has gotten beyond being ludicrous so we need to stop and take a good look at it and where it is headed.

The “I’m Offended” game, or maybe agenda would be a more correct term, seems to do one thing–it limits freedom of expression and action. For fear of “offending” someone you dare not say this or do that, and so if you follow this to its logical conclusion you end up saying nothing, doing nothing and thinking nothing. Such inaction on the part of most people makes totalitarians, whether they be Democrats, Republicans or Communists deliriously happy.

Lots of folks have started to notice this trend (agenda) of late.  I read a quote just last week that said: “My freedom ends where your feelings begin.” That’s a very accurate statement. The man who said it understands what’s going on. I read another one this week where the man said: “I’m offended by all those folks being offended over nothing.” That one is also on target.

There are so many out there now that are “offended” by so much that if everyone gives in to their list of pet grievances society will come to a screeching halt. Could that possibly be the name of the game?

They had a major flap at Yale recently over, guess what, Halloween costumes! An article on http://www.leanrightamerica.org  for November 10th said: “Halloween is more than a week in the past,  but students at Yale University are having a tough time moving on. Angry that school administrators did not take their concerns about offensive costuming seriously enough, a group of minority students met with Yale president Peter  Salovey last week to have their say. Salovery, it seems, was moved by what he heard.” What politically correct, blubbering sycophant who runs any kind of school in today’s offended world wouldn’t  be “moved” when students came to him with this kind of frippery? It gives him a chance to buddy with the plebes as if he really cared about their concerns.

It seems that some of these students are finding life on the campus of Yale “profoundly difficult.” It actually got to the point where the Intellectual Affairs Committee sent out an email requesting that students not wear “culturally unaware and insensitive costumes.” The article stated: “Apparently we’ve reached that point in history where one can take a joke.” Oh, you better believe you’ve reached it. We have arrived at the point where no one can say or even think anything that some minority group will not find offensive and jump all over your case about. There is absolutely NO humor in these people whatever. They are deadly serious.

You have to understand that this “I’m offended” agenda is another phase of Cultural Marxism. That’s all it is.  It restricts people’s liberty to laugh, or kid, and if the truth were known, much of it is not all that offensive, no matter what they say.  And I have noticed that these people who are waiting in line to “be offended” at the drop of a hat seem to have no problem at all offending white Christians, or any real Christians for that matter. They are literally standing in line to have their shot at putting Christians and their beliefs down. Haven’t noticed that? Maybe you just haven’t been paying attention. White Christians especially are the one group that it’s perfectly okay to offend, particularly if they are from the South. In fact, its’ open season on them.  Anything goes–and unfortunately, most of them don’t have sense enough to realize it yet. They’ve been kept too busy not trying to “offend” every other group around–even to the point where a lesbian “bishop” in some church in Sweden has had the cross removed from her church lest it “offend” the Muslims! You would not believe how much of this crap goes on and how much the Christians play into it unknowingly. Not much spiritual discernment left in this day and apostate age. We are so busy trying not to “offend” rank unbelievers that we can’t be bothered to stand up and defend what we are supposed to believe. After all, that might “offend” someone!

Now I am not advocating that we go out of our way to try to offend anyone, but let’s face it, Christians, just by being Christians are going to “offend” lots of folks. The truth always offends those who don’t want to believe it. If the truth offends you, I’m sorry, that’s tough. Jesus said in Matthew 11:6 “…blessed is he whosoever shall not be offended in me.” Maybe Christians need to be more concerned in making sure they are not offended by Jesus and His teaching than they need to be concerned that they might offend some pagan who doesn’t want the truth anyway.

We have, this past summer, had a concentrated campaign of ethnic and cultural cleansing here in the South that has been the most dramatic I can recall in my lifetime. And you can tell that those people who want to trash our culture, want to get rid of our flags, statues, monuments, even park and street names (it all has to go, immediately if not sooner) are playing for keeps. I don’t think most Southern folks realize the intensity of the hatred those people have for us and our history, faith and culture. Everything we believe and do is “offensive” to minorities and therefore, we must stop it all, right now.

I wonder, has anyone bothered to put forth the possibility that what they are trying to do to our history, faith, and culture just might be offensive to us? Oh, that’s not even a concern. Our right to exist ends where their injured feelings begin and we need to be on “stools of everlasting repentance” forever.

After all, the Cultural Marxists are only trying to obliterate  our faith, history, and culture–why should we be offended at that? I’ll tell you something–you’d better learn to be offended by it, otherwise they just may pull it off! Where will you be then?

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again–you had better learn how to resist these people because that’s the only thing they understand–and if you don’t do it they will just run over you as if you were so much “collateral” damage. And, as for these folks that are “offended” by everything from soup to nuts, start telling them to be thankful they still have the right to be “offended.” It’s one of the few rights they still have. And if this “gentleman”  they helped put into the White House has his way they won’t have that long!

Public Schools Promote What Scripture Forbids

by Al Benson Jr.

Very recently I read an article on http://www.wnd.com  written by Bob Unruh about a sodomite group in Scotland that is promoting a petition which demands that children from kindergarten on up be forced to “learn about homosexual, bi-sexual and transgender issues.” The moderator of the Free Church of Scotland labeled the proposal “a Trojan horse to impose an ideological perspective on all pupils.” He was right. This petition, circulated by a sodomite activist group, Time for Inclusive Education, wants children, from their earliest years of schooling to be indoctrinated in that which Holy Scripture forbids. I guess you could say those people have an agenda and it is clearly anti-Christian.

But that’s Scotland, you say, we don’t have to worry about that over here. Our public schools would never do anything like that, and besides, the school my kids go to has a Christian teacher or two and a great band program. What else matters?

Folks, I hate to rain on your parade, but this sort of thing is going on in this country also and, unfortunately, it’s nothing new. It has been going on for decades. Ask the people of Kanawha County, West Virginia about their textbook protest in the mid-1970s.

However, every once in awhile the sodomite agenda needs updating and it helps to have “useful idiots” like California Governor Jerry Brown in the governor’s chair who are more than willing to help it along. An article on http://www.cnn.com for July 15, 2011 noted: “Democratic Governor Jerry Brown said Thursday he had signed a bill that will require public schools in the state to teach students about the contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans….’History should be honest.’ Brown said in a statement.”  Yes, Mr. Brown, history should be honest–therefore homosexual propaganda shouldn’t be paraded as history in front of students. Rev. Louis Sheldon, founder of the Traditional Values Coalition said: “It is an outrage that Gov. Jerry Brown has opened the classroom door for homosexual activists to indoctrinate the minds of California’s youth, since no factual material would be allowed to be presented. If parents don’t already have their children out of public schools, this should cause them to remove them.” Yes, Rev. Sheldon, it should, but it probably won’t!

And then there was an article on http://www.cbn.com for July 6, 2015 which carried the headline: “Gender Identity Curriculum Angers Parents in Virginia.” The article stated, in part: “Parents opposed to including the lessons protested at the hearing. Many are concerned they won’t be able to opt their children out of the classes because the lessons have been removed from the Family Life Education curriculum into health classes, which are mandatory.” Of course this stuff is mandatory. They want your kids indoctrinated with it. Don’t you get it yet? For heaven sake, people, wake up and smell the sodomite soda. The Education Establishment in this country wants your kids indoctrinated (brainwashed) with this kind of thing. It’s on their to do list, right near the top of the page. It’s not accidental, or some bureaucratic screw-up.  This is being done to your kids on purpose! If you have taught your kids at home that, according to Scripture this kind of behavior is wrong, they plan to change that with their indoctrination. The article observed that parents protested this at the hearing, and what good did their protest do? It’s mandatory for the kids to be fed this propaganda no matter what the parents want and the educational establishment will make sure it is fed to them. Mom and Dad’s wishes don’t matter. Get that through your heads!

If your kids remain in public schools they will, at some point, be fed this sodomite drivel because that’s what the agenda is. If your kids were raised in a Christian home, with Christian standards–then all that has to be changed–and these government school change agents are more than willing to work to circumvent what you have taught your kids–it’s what they live for! All this junk isn’t accidental, isn’t some bureaucratic snafu–it’s on purpose and they will continue to do it to your kids–on purpose–unless you remove them from that system. You can’t just join the PTA and work to reform the system. That has never cut the mustard and it never will. All this is window dressing, to keep parents thinking they have some voice in their kids’ education when actually they have none. I’m not saying all teachers are bad–they’re not, but the system they work for is and those who run that system have an agenda that will be forced on American youth–no matter what–unless you get your kids out of their system, and it is theirs, not yours.

If you want some info about what the public education system is trying to do to (not for) your children, look up John Taylor Gatto on line. He’s an ex-public school teacher who wrote a book about all this. Read the recent Blumenfeld-Newman book Crimes of the Educators. Check out Exodus Mandate, P O Box 10272, Columbia, South Carolina, 29211 or at http://www.exodusmandate.org  and sign up for their newsletter. You can do that on line, too. Begin to find out what goes on in these schools and then work to get your kids out of them.

Years ago I worked for a Christian home school program in the Midwest and I did a few years on the phones there. One afternoon a lady from New York called up and wanted home schooling information for her daughter. Turned out she was a public school teacher, yet she was going to home school her daughter. And I never forgot what she told me. She said “I’m here (the public school) every day. No way is my daughter going to this school.” I can’t say it any better than she did.

The National Education Association and the Confederate Flag

by Al Benson Jr.

Back in July of this year the National Education Association had a big meeting in Orlando, Florida and, as is typical with this “educational” organization, they ended up debating issues that seldom have anything to do with education but would make a wish list that every socialist congressperson in Washington would dearly love to vote for.

An article by Stephen Sawchuk on Education Weekly blogs has headlined: “Resolution on Confederate Flag Sparks Controversy at NEA Assembly.”  The first sentence in the article stated: “National Education Association delegates adopted a new business item directing the union to ‘find appropriate and effective efforts to remove the confederate battle flag from schools and public spaces.'” What trying to remove Confederate battle flags from “public spaces” has to do with education escapes me and honestly, folks, how many Confederate battle flags have you recently seen atop the flagpoles at public schools? This is a politically correct (Culturally Marxist) propaganda item to alert other leftist organizations that the NEA and they are on the same page.

This item would have originally included as well “other symbols of the Confederacy”  and this led some there to question whether this resolution would include “war memorials for confederate soldiers, statues, exhibits and state flags (like Mississippi’s)  that incorporate Confederate flags. In the end that language was deleted” and they relegated their resolution to just Confederate flags. That must have been a heart-breaker for some of them. But I guess they realized, at that point, that they didn’t want to bite off more than they could chew and just getting rid of Confederate flags would still be a major step in their ethnic cleansing agenda.

The resolution on the Confederate flag passed strongly on a voice vote, but before they could manage even that it took 90 minutes of debate. Mr. Sawchuk in his closing statement said, in part, “This is not just a battle over flags, this is a battle over historical narratives.” While that wasn’t his entire statement he did realize that some historical narratives have not been really explored–though he and I would probably disagree on just which ones haven’t.

Some of the commentary by bloggers on this site was interesting and insightful. One blogger said, in part, “Do I fly the flag? No. Do I care if someone else flies the flag? No. This is just a group of people looking for a way to be insulted and this flag is the newest thing on the block.” While I believe there is a lot more to it than that, he is definitely on the right track as far as he has gone.

Another blogger on this site took an interesting tack. He said, again in part, “My second conclusion is that the hypocrites and ninnies who are on the march to save America from the Confederate flag have about the same chance of success as the Children’s Crusade. Do they have the slightest idea of who they are dealing with? They are taking on the same people who fought the Union to a standstill for four bloody years, and they are taking on people for whom that flag means something and it probably isn’t slavery…People who had never cared before will start sporting Confederate flags,  if only because their self-appointed ‘betters’ say they shouldn’t do it.” I have to admit that this commentator made a couple valid points. I’ve seen Confederate flags recently in places I never saw them before and Confederate flag rallies have proliferated  here in the South–and that’s not all that bad.

It goes to show you that the Cultural Marxists  (who ARE Marxists) don’t always get it right. Sometimes they end up ticking off people that, for the sake of their cause, they’d be better off just leaving alone.Sleeping giants sometimes awake–not as often as I’d like, but it does happen.

Sam Blumenfeld and Alex Newman in Crimes of the Educators have stated: “Note that the NEA recognizes no American culture that the student may take pride in. He is to appreciate the cultures of others, and learn about them, at the expense of learning about his own.”  And that holds doubly true if the student happens to live in the South. When we first moved here from the Midwest I talked to a knowledgeable pastor who made the comment that the South has been the most heavily brainwashed part of the country. It has been going on here since 1865. No one who has observed the national scene to any meaningful extent should doubt this. The socialist agenda of making Southern kids ashamed of their faith, history, and heritage has been pursued with extreme vigor. Part of what is going on now with Confederate symbols is a big part of that.

All you have to do is study “those people” that are opposed to Confederate symbols–the NAACP, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and the National Education Association. These groups, in order to gull the public, try to pose as “mainstream” which is totally ludicrous. They are all way over there on the extreme left of the political (and religious) spectrum. They don’t come close to being the middle-of-the-roaders they try to pretend they are. They are all Cultural Marxists, and a Cultural Marxist is nothing more than a Marxist promoting a Marxist agenda whether he belongs to some organization or not.

So take a close look at these groups that are so assiduously working to remove the symbols of your heritage. You won’t like what you find, but you do need to be aware of it.

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’ “Civil War”–Impressively Shallow

by Al Benson Jr.

Twenty five years ago this year Ken Burns launched his supposedly epic series entitled “The Civil War.” One thing you have to understand about Mr. Burns going in, he is a modern day radical abolitionist. That is his mindset. Oh, he feigns objectivity but a quick look at his work will show you that he is anything but objective.

His original “Civil War” series lasted several nights on prime time television and to be sure I got it all I sat through the entire thing. Supposedly it took Mr. Burns five years of research and a ton of Rockefeller money, all to discover that, guess what, the war was really all about slavery! What a surprise! Knowing at least part of his funding sources could anyone who has followed any of this think his conclusions would be any different.

Well, that was a long time ago, you may say. However I’ve been told that Mr. Burns is about to redo and update this series and bring it back again. After all, almost a whole generation has gone by since this series was last presented and so it’s about time now, especially in light of all this planned fuss over Confederate flags and symbols, to reintroduce this generation to the “Civil War was only about slavery issue” so that people will not forget this holy mantra of the left.

Back in October of 1990 I did an article for The Christian News out of New Haven, Missouri about Mr. Burns’ series and the title of it was exactly the same as the title for this article. Mr. Burns probably has the financial backing to update and redigitalize his material. Unfortunately, I don’t have such, so all I can do is to go back to my original article and pull out some significant excerpts and hope this will suffice. Since I expect that most folks reading this will not have seen my original article this will probably not be repetitious to most. So please bear with me.

“Being a student of that period of U.S. history that encompasses the period from around 1820-1890, I was naturally interested when I saw several articles in newspapers touting public television’s “Civil War” series, shown the week of September 23rd for five successive nights. The series got such favorable  preview publicity in the media that I felt it might be the crowning achievement of propaganda in regard to the War Between the States.  Being somewhat forewarned, and being, though Northern by birth, basically of a Southern disposition in regard to the War, I was not, unfortunately, disappointed in my assessment of the series.”

“If, in some faint vein, I had hoped for objectivity in this series, such a vain hope was dashed on the first night’s broadcast. We were supposed to have the ’causes’ of the War outlined on the first broadcast. The ’causes’ all boiled down to the same stale abolitionist rhetoric that far too many of our ‘history’ books parrot today–the reason the war was fought was to free the slaves, a noble endeavor on the part of the North. The whole question of states’ rights and constitutional issues was given no more than a line or two, barely lip service. The theological implications of the War were totally ignored, as if they had never existed, and indeed, for the promoters of the program they probably did not, consciously. We were told that the man that put this series together spent five years researching his subject. That may be, but he surely didn’t read the same books I have!”

“The series hardly dealt with the Unitarian-influenced abolitionist movement in the North and the pressure that radical movement exerted on Northern politicians. It did not at all deal with the revival of reformation Christianity taking place in the South before the war.”

“John Brown, the abolitionist terrorist, was mentioned chiefly in his connection to the aborted raid at Harpers Ferry, Virginia. One got the impression from the program that Brown did all that he did on his own. Never was there a mention of the wealthy group of Northerners, one a Unitarian clergyman, called ‘the Secret Six’ that paid for a great deal of John Browns terrorism, both in Kansas and other places. Why weren’t these Northern financiers of Brown’s terrorism mentioned? They are mentioned in the National Park Service museum at Harpers Ferry. Their pictures are on the wall there.”

Lord willing, I will continue with these comments in another article. I don’t know when Mr. Burns’ updated series will be rebroadcast but it might not hurt to sit in when it is and make note of all the things that have been conveniently left out. I am sure you will find the list considerable.

All “Hate” Symbols Are Not Equal

by Al Benson Jr.

George Orwell was noted, decades ago now, in his book Animal Farm for making the prophetic statement “All the animals in this barnyard are equal but some are more equal than others.” We recognize that this is true in the political realm, where those that rule us (at least the ones that we can see) claim that we and they are all equal, but it always works out that they end up being “more equal” than the rest of us because they know how to work the system. Sort of like the old Communist commissars who ruled with an iron fist in the name of the “people” but no one ever really told us which people. Obviously it wasn’t the common people. So we can always recognize as a given the fact that, no matter what the political fertilizer being spread around, there will always be a class of people that is “more equal” than the rest of us.

The same is true of cultural symbols.  Some are always portrayed as “more equal” (worse) than others, depending on whose agenda is being forwarded with the portrayal.

For instance, in the current Culturally Marxist climate, we are constantly being informed that the Confederate flag (any Confederate flag) is the premier “hate symbol” in the universe. Nazi and Communist flags pale into minor insignificance beside it. Muslim flags, carried by those who behead Christians are hardly worth mentioning because, after all, they are carried by people belonging to the “religion of peace” and so they couldn’t possibly be considered hate symbols. Ask our beloved president–he knows!

That loopy character in Charleston who murdered those nine black folks had a picture of himself taken with a Confederate flag and so doesn’t that prove this flag is the world’s foremost symbol of hate? I’ve read several comments about that photo in recent weeks, but the one that really caught my eye, and I don’t recall the site I saw it on now, said the photo of him with that flag was “ostensibly photoshopped.” After all the fuss over the president’s “birth certificate” in recent years, the term “photoshopped” caught my attention. But what about other hate symbols? What about other hate crimes?

The black journalist that killed those two white people in Virginia only a few days ago–will that be treated as a hate crime? Or will that be passed off as another case of “workplace violence?” I’m afraid most of us already know the answer to that one.

There was an article on Breitbart.com for August 27th, the headline of which read: “Report: LGBT Rainbow Hate-Flag Found In WDBJ Killer’s Virginia Apartment.”  I’d be willing to bet your Evening Fishwrapper didn’t say it quite like that. For them it will be toned down to almost minor insignificance. The Breitbart article noted: “The Daily Telegraph has learned that ‘Police reportedly confiscated a gay pride flag’ from the apartment of Vester Lee Flanagan Wednesday. In an apparent hate crime, Flanagan is the 41 year-old black journalist who murdered two white Virginia reporters on live television Wednesday morning before turning the gun on himself… In a manifesto faxed to ABC News, Flanagan, an Obama supporter, claimed that his motive involved a ‘race war.’ Flanagan was black and gay and apparently angered by the fact that he had been a victim of racism and homophobia at the hands of black men and white women…The gay pride rainbow flag reportedly found in Flanagan’s apartment is seen by many as a symbol of anti-Christian hate.” Of course the many who view it that way are not politicians or media people.

So, do you think it will be treated that way by the “news” media? Don’t kid yourselves. They and the politicians will bend over backwards (so far they lose their balance) trying to portray the Sodomite flag as a banner of “love and inclusiveness” at the same time they are striving to paint the Confederate flag as something hateful.  And most of them have been so completely brainwashed they won’t even begin to see the glaring contradiction.

Now we all know that there have been some groups that have misused  and abused the Confederate flag.  They’ve used it for purposes it was never intended to be used for. It is now past time for good Southern folks to reclaim their flag and repudiate those who have misused it. Some have already done this. More need to.

As far as the Sodomite flag goes, it lauds and promotes what the Scriptures condemn. In that sense, to label it a hate flag is not out of line. It promotes a lifestyle that Christians should not countenance, but rather should examine in the light of Ephesians 5:11-12.  Unfortunately, many Christians will not think this is a “loving” approach and so they will reject it. And the Ruling Establishment and the “news” media which they control love to have it so.

In fact we have been deluded into such political correctness that an account of a deputy sheriff in Texas being shot in the back by a black man has now been appended so  that it reads that the sheriff was shot by a “dark-skinned” person. Are they now afraid to reveal the man’s race? Oh, I forgot, it’s only white folks that do this kind of stuff. No one else cares to be “racist” but us–and on and on the hogwash gets spread around. Let’s hope that folks are starting to get fed up with what amounts to a very large pile of bovine fertilizer!

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.
