How To Stifle Peaceful Assembly–Bring In ANTIFA

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

A peaceful patriotic group assembled in Portland, Oregon on Saturday, August 4th for a patriotic prayer rally. There was no problem with this, as there should not have been. These are not the kind of folks that start riots. However, at some point the fascist-oriented Leftist group Antifa arrived. After their arrival and their subsequent “activities” which included throwing bottles and other things at the police,  the Portland police declared an “emergency situation” and informed all those present that if they did not leave the area they would be subject to arrest.

This is somewhat the same situation that prevailed in Charlottsville, Virginia last year around this time or shortly thereafter. Several Rightist groups that had assembled there were no real problem until Antifa and others of their Leftist ilk came on the scene, which resulted in all kinds of problems because Antifa started attacking people and only when they defended themselves did the police step in.

It almost seems, in a lot of these situations, as if the police have standing orders not to do anything until someone responds to Antifa violence. If no one responded and the patriotic groups just stood there and let Antifa beat on them one wonders if the police would do anything at all. But once someone on the Rightist side has the temerity to dare to resist Antifa aggression, then the police step in and declare an emergency and break up the rally, whatever it had been about. You almost get the impression that Antifa violence is okay but resistance to it is not.

I haven’t noticed Antifa breaking up an Leftist demonstrations, which often end up destroying private property. But, then, that’s not part of their  agenda while attacking and assaulting those on the Right is. And,  please, don’t let anyone misinform you that Antifa is “anti-fascist.” They are one of the most fascist groups around. When all is said and done, fascism is a Leftist ideology–the second cousin to communism.

It seems that nowadays all you have to do to deprive people of their First Amendment right of peaceful assembly to redress their grievances, or even to pray, is to make sure Antifa shows up and starts assaulting people and the police will end the assembly then and there! Almost seems like that’s the plan. If the group assembling to make a statement is anywhere to the right of Che Guevara then you can almost depend on an Antifa presence to shut down their free speech.

You do have to wonder who tells the police to stand down and let Antifa do what they want and only to  react if someone resists an Antifa assault. Is it the local authorities? Is it someone higher up than them who tells them what or what not to do?

You also have to wonder, sometimes, does the “to serve and protect” written on some police cars refer only to Antifa and not to ordinary American citizens? Why do so many police departments only act when someone at a rally resists being assaulted by some Antifa thug with a mask on? Who are the police there to protect–the Antifa fascists or ordinary citizens?

Has anyone considered that Antifa might be the perfect vehicle to deprive some Americans of their First Amendment protections in a public setting? That thought has occurred to me so I’m sure it has occurred to lots of others also.

And who funds Antifa? That’s a sixty-four dollar question. I’m also sure lots of folks have a pretty good idea–probably the man who seeks to be “the conscience of the world”  is one of the biggest paymasters for them. Who does Antifa really work for? Part of the Deep State? Are they part of the “pressure from below” that is being exerted on the American people by those who are waiting for their chance to exert their “pressure from above” on us? Inquiring minds would like to know–but then, maybe some of them already do.

“Love and Peace” and Multiculturalism Really Equal Hate (But you are not supposed to know that).

We seem to be wallowing in a politically correct (cultural Marxist) sea, (bilge included) of love, diversity, sensitivity, multi-culturalism,  and a few other “isms” I won’t mention here for the sake of decency. Most of those involved in various aspects of these “movements” really want to convey the idea that they are involved in what they do for the betterment of the world. Yet, if you look at them and what they say and do, you begin to realize that the one thing they all have in common is an abiding hatred for Jesus Christ and the Christian faith. Anything built upon any kind of Christian foundation is anathema to these people and they will go to great lengths to tear it  down.

They loudly proclaim that Christians are hate-mongers, yet we don’t see Christians running around tearing down historical monuments and flags, even those they may disagree with. We don’t see Christians with masks over their faces loudly claiming they are “anti-fascists” as they race to break up demonstrations and parades they don’t agree with. Only the proponents of Leftist love do that—all in the name of sensitivity and diversity.

It should have become more than obvious to thinking people by now that those on the Left that engage in this sort of behavior in the name of diversity really want no opinions out there that dissent from their Leftist dogma. They really don’t want people to have a chance to know the truth. They are nothing more than liars who want to shut down all opposition to the far-left agenda they promote for those big money moguls that finance them. They love no one and hate everybody, and  then they have the gall to call Christians purveyors of hate.

You have to realize that this is all by design. These people may claim to be opposed to capitalism or private property or unequal distribution of the wealth, but what they really seek to do is to tear down completely whatever remains of our Christian foundations. Nowhere is this more obvious than in their assaults on our Christian heritage and culture, especially here in the South!

Our Christian history and culture has to be replaced by some grotesque vision out of the Communist Manifesto, the Illuminati’s handbook for the destruction of a Christian society. And to think, our universities teach this  stuff and we pay to send our kids there to be indoctrinated. Then we wonder why kids are leaving the churches. And I haven’t even touched on what the kids get fed in grades K-12.

I’ll note one small instance here. When we lived back on the East Coast, there was a school over in Rhode Island that invited a prostitute to come in and lecture either one of the middle school grades or high school grades, I can’t recall just which right now. So how much benefit were those kids supposed to get out of this? And this wasn’t someone who had repented and was there to tell the kids how bad it was—she was still in business.

I have looked at a lot of the aberrations that have gone on in government schools over the decades and one thing I have noted—all of them were anti-Christian in some way, no exceptions! But then, the history of the government school system is shrouded in anti-Christianity. That should probably tell parents with kids in public schools that their kids would be better off in some other more Christian educational environment. Unfortunately, in the 40-plus years I have been observing this phenomenon most Christian parents don’t seem to have gotten the message. There are times when you almost feel like asking—“Oh Lord,  how long???”

So Who’s Promoting Insurrection On “Independence Day?”

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Most folks must have heard by now about the calls for civil war and/or insurrection that are being promoted to start on the fourth of July this year.

Every dedicated Leftist, has been, wanna be, or otherwise is out there bragging about how they are going to take the country down starting on the Fourth. It shows you how totally evil the Left really is. They preach about love, peace,  and tolerance but it is all bovine fertilizer, designed to cover up the fact that they really want to destroy the country and our culture and history and replace these with some grotesque imitation of how life was under Stalin in the Soviet Union. And they want us to believe they are doing it in the name of “peace” and societal improvement. If you dare to disagree with them you are a “racist” and if you voted for Trump, God help you, then you deserve the worst of all possible horrors! And they aim to make sure you get it while beating upon their self-righteous Leftist breasts. If their actions don’t wake us up to reality then we probably deserve the fate they have in store for us.

I’ve recently noted some of the more loud-mouthed among them. The ever loathsome Michael Moore is out there shouting that “We have to put our bodies on the line” to stop Trump. In his case that will be a pretty hefty contribution, as Comrade Moore looks like he’s been eating pretty regularly  of late. No shrinking violet or snowflake he! You have to wonder when he directed his last movie. He definitely belongs in the “has been” class–nothing left but big mouth, and too much of that!

Moore wants to get a million people to surround the capitol  to prevent Trump from appointing a new Supreme Court justice before the mid-term elections when he figures the Democrats will surge back into power in Congress and force Trump to settle for a new Supreme Court justice  the Communists would love!

Then there is Maxine (Mad  Max) Waters who is still, believe it or not, in Congress. You have to wonder what she’s done for her home district of late outside of shooting her mouth off. I’m told her home district is one of the most crime-ridden in the country, but she doesn’t  have time to worry about that–she’s way too busy badmouthing the President to be concerned about such trivialities. I heard her last outbreak earned her a charge of assaulting a news reporter. Right up her alley!  If they dare disagree with “Mad Max” they probably need to be assaulted, right?

Then there is another has been, Robert DiNero. The total educational clout of his Leftist argument is “F… Trump.” That’s all you can get out of him because he doesn’t have anything beyond that. Once he has screamed that two or three times he has shot his load and their ain’t no more (thank Heaven).

I read an article on the internet today about federal authorities arresting a man in Cleveland who was allegedly planning a terrorist attack for July 4th there. The man had an American name but was also known by a handle that  comes straight out of the Arabian Nights. Anyone surprised?

It would seem that the communists and other assorted Leftists will be attempting to provoke a communist revolution on July 4th that will result in Trump’s removal as President. In other words they, in some way or other, plan to overthrow the government. Unfortunately, there are people in Washington, some in government, that will be more than happy to aid them in that endeavor.

If the Left really plan such actions on July 4th, you have to wonder whose money will be paying for all this planned chaos. The Left always has big money people in back of its actions to foot the bills for all they do. Might be an interesting exercise to check out some of the organizations George Soros funds to see where they sit on the political spectrum,  or some of those funded by the Rockefeller Foundation or some of the other big, tax free foundations.

And don’t forget the old “pressure from above and pressure from below” principle. The Leftists exert the pressure from below but they always do it at the behest of those wanting to pressure us from above.

You can find books like None Dare Call It Conspiracy and The Rockefeller File on the internet and read them for nothing. They will give you some idea of what is going on today even though they were written several years ago. And there are other books you can buy that are not all that  expensive. One good one is The Shadows of Power by James Perloff, which is a history of the Council on Foreign Relations and how America has declined under that group.

We had better start waking up and realizing that the Leftists and the big money people that fund their radical activity are trying to take this country away from us.  And to add insult to injury we have the latest offering from the One World Government group, the United Nations on

So What Does Civil War Look Like in America In the 21st Century?

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Actually, civil war in this country has a lot of manifestations, some of which we are seeing right now.

Some say it will be a struggle between “progressives” (those on the Left and their Deep State financiers), some currently in government and the folks we refer to as patriots, of which there are many stripes, (many of which, unfortunately, refuse to get along  with one another). There are more patriots than progressives, but many patriots have yet to come to grips with the fact that, in several forms, the civil war has already begun. By the time some of the patriots decide to pick up their guns and fight, the real struggle may well be beyond them and their ability to make a difference. Unfortunately, they could have earlier made a difference had they been willing to pick up their Bibles and then their pens (which are still mightier than the sword if rightly used). Cultural conflicts are not always won with firearms, though that is a last resort.

Back before the War of Northern Aggression the North had been waging a cultural war against the South for decades. Mostly the South ignored it, paid little  attention to those Northern people (and those who backed them) as they horrendously slandered the South and its people. Many Southerners did not feel it was “gentlemanly” to reply to gross Northern slander. Good folks they were–but they were wrong. If the Lord is the source  of all truth, which He is, then you need to defend that truth wherever you have it!

Some say the civil war will commence when rational discussion can no longer be had. Sad to say, we are long past that point. All you have to do is look at Black Lives Matter, Antifa, or the NAACP to realize rational discussion is out the window. Those  people are there to destroy your culture and history and they don’t give a flip about “rational discussion.” That’s not on their agenda. Never will be!

You have to admit that, in a sense, a state of civil war exists between Trump and his supporters and those who supported St. Hillary in the last election. Hillary, Soros, Obama, and the rest of the Deep State apparatus have never gotten over Hillary’s stinging defeat in that election and the proof that  a variation of civil war exists is the  fact that they are all actively working to overthrow the results of the last election constantly.  The Deep State has never stopped trying to destroy Trump (and by extension those who support him) since he took office. They have been trying, illegally, immorally, or any way they could, to unseat him constantly–and they actually think we “deplorables” are too stupid to notice. They are not only at war with Trump–they are at war with US! Trump is trying to run the government as best he can and the Left (composed of many congress critters who are Republicans as well as Democratic socialists) is trying to wrest control from him and his administration and I think they’d actually hand it over to Hillary if they thought they  could do it, against the will of the American electorate. Maybe that’s why they want our guns so badly right about  now. When two opposing groups contend for control of the  same government that’s a definition of civil war!!!

Mueller’s witch hunt is a main campaign in the Left’s civil war against America and her people. We are already at war (a spiritual war first and foremost) and it  would be helpful if the Christians and patriots could, in larger numbers, begin to realize that the war is already upon us, both culturally and in the streets, as well as in the vaunted halls of congress.

A good place to make a beginning is to get on the internet and read None Dare Call It Conspiracy by Gary Allen. Although written back in 1972, it will give you valuable insight as to where we are in our day and why.

America’s Second “Civil War” will really be our first!

 

By Al Benson  Jr.

Member, Board  of Directors, Confederate Society of America

 

There has been lots of stuff on the internet, both  videos and articles, lately about what they are calling “America’s Second Civil War.” Actually, that title  is based on a false assumption. The war that was fought from 1861-65 was not a civil war. It was a war of Northern aggression to prevent Southern independence, because Southern independence would have meant no more tariff money from the South for Lincoln and his friends to finance their pet projects in the North.

The North and South were not fighting over the same government. The South had no interest in capturing the Northern government—they just wanted out, but the North needed the tariff money and so they fought.  The slavery question we have all been taught to believe was the North’s  Holy Grail was, at best, peripheral.

So if we have “another” civil war, it will be our first one and it may well happen in some form because there are people and groups that want it to happen—people and groups that you can’t sit down and talk rationally with, because they have a vision for a “new Amerika” as part of a “New World Order” and they are not about to compromise on that. The fact that most Americans don’t want that matters not at all to them. They want it and that’s what’s important to them. In their minds all we get to do is pay for it.

In an article by Pat Buchanan that was on www.wnd.com back in August of 2017 Buchanan noted that this country has changed since 1965. Before that, statues of our Southern heroes were venerated and honored, as were our flags. Buchanan said: “What his changed is America herself. She is not the same country. We have passed through a great social, cultural and moral revolution that has left us irretrievably divided on separate shores..” And he noted that, today, the names of Robert E. Lee and other Confederate heroes evoke “raw hatred and howls of ‘racist and traitor’.” In part,  our “institutions of higher learning” and the prostitute press are responsible for this—and they do it for a price.

Later on in his article, Buchanan notes President Trump’s question about this—“Where  does this all end?” And then he makes a chilling statement. He says “It doesn’t. Not until America’s histories and biographies are burned and new  texts written to Nazify Lee, Jackson, Davis and all the rest, will a newly indoctrinated generation of Americans accede to this demand to tear down and destroy what their fathers cherished.” As long as we continue to feed our next generation into these public education brain laundries, whether at the high school or college level, we are contributing to that destruction-and quite frankly, too many are too lazy to give a damn!

And Buchanan observes that, once the Left gets  through trashing the Confederates, they will push forward with the same agenda for whoever else is on their hit list. If you are naïve enough to think that “because I’m not a Confederate they won’t bother me” you had better learn to disabuse yourself of that fantasy right quick! If you are white, Christian, conservative, or patriotic you can bet the  farm you are on their list. You might not be as far up as the Confederates but you are there somewhere and when they get through destroying the cultures and heritage of those above you on the Leftist hit list, they will come for you!

In a column on www.dennisprager.com for January 24, 2017 it was stated: “This Second Civil War, fortunately, differs in another critically important way. It has  thus far been largely nonviolent. But given increasing left-wing violence, such as riots, the taking over of college presidents’ offices and the illegal occupation of state capitols, nonviolence  is not guaranteed to be a permanent characteristic of the Second Civil War. The same article later states: “Unity was possible between the right and the liberals, but not between the right and the left.” There are reasons for that. The article continues: “Just as in Western Europe, the left in America seeks to erase America’s Judeo-Christian foundations…Without any important value held in common, how can there be unity between left and non-left? Obviously there cannot. There will be unity only when the left vanquishes the right or the right vanquishes the left…” In other words, if you think you can make common cause with the Left and preserve a little of  what you still have—you are whistling Yankee Doodle!

The cultural Marxists, the political and theological Left, the Deep State (they are all kissin’ cousins) have as their plan your destruction and the destruction of your family and your faith and your history. Their “second Civil War” will be a war of extermination, in every understanding of that word! Do you get that yet???

One of the main questions here is—Who finances the Left?  They don’t do all that they do to work for your destruction for nothing. Someone has to pay for all this, and what do they expect to get out it all? I know it’s a rough go, but maybe you better start thinking and praying about all this and what you can do about it. Doing nothing gets you nothing but the destruction of your history, heritage and progeny.

Florida False Flag

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Originally, I had planned an article on another subject. But as this school shooting in Florida came along and as I watched developments it became apparent that this could wind up being one of the major false flags of the decade, depending on how much it ends up affecting our Second Amendment rights, which sadly, at this point, even Mr. Trump seems willing to compromise on. I hope the ease with which he is starting to cave in on this issue is not indicative of his trend for the future.

Today (Feb 21) I found an interesting article on https://constitution.com  which comments and asks questions about this situation (and some of the comments are worth passing along). I did not catch the author’s name but you should be able to pick up the article on their website. The author makes some penetrating observations about some of those anti-gun “students” from Florida we have all been treated to via the mainstream (fake news) media.

He notes: “There is a growing suspicion about some of the kids from the high school in Parkland, Florida, that was beset by a mass murder. Some are questioning the kids who have been all over TV advocating for the end of our Second Amendment rights. They are saying these kids are not mere high school students,  but are instead suspiciously well-trained activists.” Of course RINO Marco Rubio is putting his two cents worth in to condemn anyone who dares question the students’ integrity or sincerity.

According to a Tampa Bay Times reporter,  an aid to a Florida State Representative has said that: “…two of the kids who have been advocating for anti-gun policies are not regular students who were just caught up in the waves of history, but are ‘actors’ who were placed ahead of time to exploit a tragedy and push an agenda.” Rubio ended up attacking anyone who doubted what the students said. In other words–don’t you dare question what is going to be the “official version” of this event. Whatever questions you might have, keep them to yourself. Just sit down and shut up!

If you don’t follow this kind of thing, you may ask what is making people, who have now been exposed to these false flag events, begin to doubt these kids? According to the constitution.com article: “Well, in one case at least, some are now saying that Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student David Hogg, who has been appearing all over CNN, MSNBC, the Big three networks, and even foreign media, is a plant. There is a lot of proof that this kid has been an activist for some time. The folks at True Pundit, for instance, made a few accusations ‘But now we learn Hogg was hanging out at CNN headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia sometime before the school shooting. Before the shooting. Posing behind a news anchor desk.”  And True Pundit added some photos to beef up their contention. There were a couple photos in the article, one showing Hogg wearing his CNN t-shirt and another with him sitting behid  CNN news desk with some young lady, presumably some sort of news anchor.

Also, http://www.infowars.com observed in an article https://www.infowars.com/student-anti-gun-activist-featured-in-cbs-la-news-story-six-months-ago/  Hogg was noted s having been in a news story in August of 2017 in Redondo Beach, California. It seems the young Mr. Hogg does get around. The inforwars article observed other things, one of them how some students seem to be getting coached on how they should act in front of the media. One student said: “We’re not afraid of people trying to exploit us. We’ve practiced.  We know their slimy tactics. Thankfully, most networks we’ve worked with are interested in telling the right stories…” Now there is a loaded comment if ever their was one! A plug from a student for the mainstream media because they try to tell the “right stories.” Right for who? That’s a question some of us would enjoy seeing answered. Right for who? All the “news” that fits?

The more I look and listen to folks who know how to read between the lines and interpret this stuff, the more it looks to me like this whole Florida shooting event is more than a bit dicey.  If this ends up being another event designed to cut the Second Amendment off at the knees, even with the reluctant blessing of the president, it won’t surprise me in the least.

The comment from that kids who said “We’ve practiced” was revealing. Why have you practiced? Who has been coaching you? From your comment is sounds like there are a bunch of you, not just one. Almost sounds like you all were prepped ahead of time for all this. I realize, according to Mr. Rubio, I shouldn’t be in the least suspicious, but…..

Too Many Cultures To Fit Into “One Indivisible Nation?”

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Back in the 1990s I picked up a book in a used book store in Delavan, Wisconsin called The Nine Nations of North America by Joel Garreau, published way back in 1981. Mr. Garreau’s contention was that “Whatever the political maps may say, our continent is not divided into 50 states and three countries. What we really are is: The Nine Nations of North America.” Whatever else you may think of Mr. Garreau’s worldview, on this question he does have a valid point.

Mr. Garreau went on to display a map of North America in the center of his book that displayed the “nine nations” of North America and their approximate boundaries and he then discussed the separate cultures of each of the nine areas.

One of the cultural areas he listed was (and still is) “Dixie.” And, for him, Dixie went as far north as Indianapolis, Indiana and as far west as Dallas, Texas. From Fort Worth all the way to Denver, Colorado was another cultural area he labeled as “The Breadbasket.” West of that, all the way to the Sierra Nevada mountains  was what he called “The Empty Quarter”–the Far West, except for the Left Coast which was and is a totally different cultural milieu from any of the rest. Again, I can’t disagree overly much with him here. I remember the first time I went west, many years ago now,  that as I crossed over from Arizona and Nevada into eastern California, it didn’t take me too long to realize that “this ain’t the West.” Geographically it was, but not culturally. And the difference between California and Nevada and Arizona increased the further west you went in California. The same principle applies pretty much to Washington and Oregon. The eastern part of those states has some really pretty high desert country, but when you get in proximity to the coast, it’s a whole other animal. Different cultures altogether.

I wrote about Garreau’s book in a couple articles years ago because his theory seemed to have some validity, and I think it still does. Just recently I came across information about another book along the same lines, written by Colin Woodard, called American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America. Mr. Woodard does the same thing Mr. Garreau did regarding North America only he breaks it down into eleven separate cultures instead of nine. Only I’m not sure that the cultures of Dixie and the Far West are really rivals. I think, in most instances, they compliment one another because they have the same problems with the same types of people (overweening government bureaucrats). Mr. Woodard’s book is reviewed on a site called http://www.theburningplatform.com for those who might want to check it out.

It’s interesting how similar his map of North America is to Mr. Garreau’s, and yet there are differences. In Woodard’s book what we call Dixie is divided into four parts; the traditional Deep South, and above that what he calls “Greater Appalachia.  Then there is Tidewater Virginia and North Carolina, and liberal South Louisiana. But he notes that, generally, the Deep South and Greater Appalachia  have pretty much similar traditions and views of politics and government. These folks, in both areas, just want to be left alone and want the government to butt out of their lives. Both areas have strong, vibrant, colorful cultures, which the Left and East Coasts are trying to destroy. Their cultures remain strong, even after the continued assaults by the shock troops of the Left, financed by socialist millionaires, which have sought to weaken their (our) culture, heritage and traditions. Dixie may not push back as loudly as we could wish sometimes against her adversaries, but she does push back.

In fact, with some of the cultural genocide that has been practiced on this part of the country it is obvious that Dixie’s culture is totally at odds with the culture of the Left Coast and the East Coast, as well as that of many major cities. And, considering the cultural clash between the two, you have to give serious consideration to the question of whether the two opposing cultures would be better off separated into two distinct “nations.” Should that be the case (and I would not argue against it) all the folks in the South would need to do is to chase the Leftists out of the South, back to their preferred areas of habitation, under their own rocks, and find some way to make them leave the South alone. Separate countries might help that situation to some extent.

How to do that might just be the “sixty-four dollar question” because it is a known fact that the Leftists want to make the rest of the country as miserable as they are and they are willing to work hard at that. All things said, cultural separation as well as geographical separation might be best for everyone. We’ll just have to see where all this goes, but one thing is evident–Dixie needs to fight to hang onto its culture, faith, history and traditions and not left the Leftists turn us into yet another Socialist Great Swamp.

Key Words For Confederate Monuments–“On Private Land”

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Usually, I seldom quote the New York Times as it is not one of my favorite publications, and I have accused it, over the years, of not printing “all the news that’s fit to print” but rather of printing all the news that fits (the agenda).

On August 30th I read a Times article by a Sabrina Tavernise, and although I did not agree with all her conclusions in this article, she did bring up some points worthy of comment.

To start her article she noted: “One of the proudest moments of Robert Eldreth’s life was erecting a Confederate monument on a patch of grass behind the Georgetown (Delaware) Historical Society in 2007. It was the first monument to Delawareans who had served the Confederacy, and the fact that it came 142 years after the end of the war hardly mattered. ‘It’s a lesson in history,’ said Mr. Eldreth, who led the group that put it up. ‘It’s about our roots and sacrifices that those citizens here in Delaware made. To me that’s so honorable’.”

Ms. Tavernise made an interesting comment, citing the damage the Charlottesville episode was intended to cause the cause of Southern history and heritage, when she said: “While old monuments erected in bygone eras are coming down, new ones continue to go up.” Most in the mainstream media would never admit this.

She mentioned other instances along this line. She observed: “In Crenshaw County, Alabama,  a new monument to ‘unknown Confederate soldiers’ was unveiled Sunday in a private park. In the small East Texas town of Orange, a giant concrete ring of 13 columns, representing the states the Confederacy claimed as its own, is going up on private land at the intersection of Interstate 10 and Martin Luther King Drive.”

A historian at the University of North Carolina has also stated “There has been a Civil War memorial boom going on over the last 20 years.” He noted that at least 36 monuments had gone up in North Carolina since 2000 and that was as many as were put up in all the years between 1940 and 1990.

At this point, Tavernise made a statement I somewhat had to disagree with. She did note that, while in former years, monuments and memorials were put up in “busy public squares” the monuments going up today are appearing in quieter areas, more away “from the bustle of daily life on plots of private land, or on battlefield sites,…” And while many Americans don’t want to see monuments taken down, she feels that new monuments are not finding the acceptance in “broader society” that they once did. I guess that depends on where the “broader society” is coming from. If you are talking about Northern Virginia, which has become infested with dwelling places for Washington bureaucrats, she might have a point. However, I don’t think that holds true for many other places in the South.

A Sons of Confederate Veterans commander in Alabama noted that more monuments will go up, but it will be on private property. That seems to be the trend now, and in light of all the cultural destruction and ethnic cleansing that has gone on in the South in recent years, that seems to me to be the way to go. We need to keep putting up our monuments, flags, and memorials, but do it on private property, where culturally Marxist city and town council members can’t get their grubby collectivist paws on them. Oh, they will wail and moan about the “injustice and racism” of it all because they don’t get their way. Tough, baby. Let them know this is how the cookie crumbles.

Not as many may get to see some of the monuments in more out of the way places, but those that really care and want their children to appreciate their culture and heritage will make the effort to visit these places. And their culture and history will be preserved–even if it is a little ways outside of town. In the long run, that doesn’t matter.

The key to putting up our monuments, flags, and memorials is to start doing it on private land! The folks mentioned in this article have shown that this can be done, and for the sake of our children and their children’s futures it needs to be done. Whatever the cultural Marxists manage to tear down, let us be replacing as much as we can on private land. Private land!!! Even the thought of that makes the cultural Marxists cringe!

Political Ignorance–Part of the new slavery

by Al Benson Jr.

There a lots of “useful idiots” out there on the Left that couldn’t pour water into a teapot if they were handed a set of gilt-edged instructions along with the water. Our government education system has largely aided in their brainwashing and programming so that they think good is evil, freedom is slavery, and white is evil, even though many of them are white. They claim that fascism is a “right-wing” phenomena when any sane person recognizes that there is precious little difference between a Nazi (national socialist) and a Communist (international socialist). They are both socialists!

I just read an article this morning from Frontpage Magazine, by Matthew Vadum, dealing with Antifa, which is supposed to be an “anti-fascist” group but, in reality, acts as though they were Hitler’s brown shirts. Vadum stated in his article: “Video has surfaced showing masked Antifa thugs in Berkeley, California, last weekend calling for the destruction of the United States…It is becoming increasingly clear that the Antifa, short for anti-fascists, are the de facto militant arm of today’s Democratic Party…” According to Tucker Carlson of Fox News “This is a political militia that is doing the bidding, in effect, of Nancy Pelosi and Governor Jerry Brown and the mayor of Berkeley and all these supposedly mainstream Democratic politicians, and this is a militia hurting American citizens for saying what they think.”

And Antifa does have an agenda, whether its own or one that was handed to it by those who finance its Leftist political gyrations or not, I don’t know, but I rather think it’s one that has been handed to them and then they have been left to work out the particulars.

They talk about “creating a culture of  tolerance and then they employ the techniques of cultural Marxism to work that out. They say “To create a culture of tolerance, we must first eliminate all forms of hate speech. Every idea critical of our movement or our way of thinking  must be condemned as” racist, homophobic, misogynist, etc.” So, in their “culture of tolerance” they are going to condemn the opinions or ideas of anyone that dares to disagree with their collectivist viewpoint.

And they continue: “…When all else fails, compare someone to Hitler. Every once in awhile one of our minority group friends will become disillusioned and speak out as a conservative a.k.a. fascist. Belittle them as delusional..Our color, my blackness, for example, comes first. It defines who I am. Black first, American second. Gay/Lesbian first, little person/dwarf second, American third, and so on.”

And they say: “Most liberals are not ANTIFA (yet) but soon they will be…Never call any immigrant ‘illegal,’ obviously.  They are ‘undocumented…By 2117, one hundred years from now, our goal is to have 70% of the US population be non-white…”

They have a big interest in controlling the media and they have a big interest in the social media. They have said: “Social media is the new battlefront of ideals. We’ve seen what kind of power these outlets yield by kicking major fascists off their platform before. This will and this must only continue.” In other words they work to eliminate opinions contrary to their own. So much for “free speech.” It’s “free” if they say it is–otherwise it’s “fascist.”

And they make an interesting statement for those of you who have kids. They say: “Many of us first learned about Antifa and gained our views on college campuses and universities across the country. This needs to start earlier. Take up teaching as a profession. Educate the youth about the dangers of fascism…Teach little Tommy not just how to read good, but also how to think and act good.”  All in accord with the worldview of Antifa, of course. Maybe, if his parents are not too sharp about what goes on in school, they can teach little Tommy to be a good socialist! That’s where they are really headed and one way for them to do that is to make sure that little Tommy has no cultural heritage, particularly Southern cultural heritage, to fall back on, because like all good socialists, Antifa knows that if they steal your youngsters’ history and heritage they will control his future instead of you.

This is just a little something for you to ponder as you sit in front of the TV and watch the Anfifa thugs, all masked, march across your screen in their quest to “destroy fascists” which means  you!  

Culture Destroyers, Leftist Ignoramuses, Useful Idiots-all in high gear

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Some one sent me a copy  of an article from The Gateway Pundit website yesterday, August 17th, which I thought was poetic justice.  The article began by saying this: “Make no doubt about it–This is Marxist revolution in America today. Fed by media lies, radical community organizers and millions of dumb leftists.”

It turns out that a group of ignoramus Leftists in Chicago have torched a statue of Abraham Lincoln, even though he supposedly “freed the slaves” which he really didn’t. Now either these Leftists are totally ignorant–or, on the other hand, maybe a handful of them have read Donnie Kennedy’s and my book Lincoln’s Marxists which gives the lowdown on where Lincoln really was racially (if they can even read)–and if they graduated from Chicago public schools that’s a big “if.”

As I said, I found this an instance of poetic justice. Lincoln, the Marxist lover, has his statue torched by Chicago Marxists! That has got to be a hoot for people who know what the political game really is. Do I endorse their doing that to his statue? No. I am no Lincoln lover by any stretch of the imagination, but I don’t endorse vandalizing monuments and statues, even of people I don’t like. If we start doing that we are no better than our adversaries on the Left.

So the Social Justice Warriors (more Leftists) are definitely on a “remove the statues” kick. They sense cultural victory within their grasp this year and so they are going for broke. But I also noticed an article from Seattle yesterday about a really ugly statue of Lenin there (and I mean this this IS ugly)! However, for some reason the Social Justice Warrior crowd does not have this Lenin statue on their list of monuments that need to come down. They want Washington and Jefferson monuments to come down but they are okay with leaving Lenin up. Could it just possibly be that they agree with what Lenin did to Russia and they want the same thing for us here–Lenin being a beacon of light for them?

And then, back to New Orleans!  You all remember the big fuss there earlier this year over the Confederate statues that had to come down because a handful of Leftists, including the mayor’s black girlfriend, didn’t like them and the mayor decided to use that as a platform to advance his political career. Well, guess what? They are now back for round two and they have a whole bunch of other things they don’t like that now have to either come down or be changed. This is what you get when you try to appease the cultural Marxists–they never quit until your whole history and culture are gone and they own you.

According to an article by Kevin Litten: “Take Em Down NOLA has long said city leaders did not go far enough. They want the statue of Andrew Jackson in Jackson Square taken down, as well as the renaming of streets such as Jefferson Davis Parkway and Robert E. Lee Boulevard. Historian Kelly Porter, who said she was helping Take Em Down with research, said at the press conference that she had identified 13 additional statues and a number of schools, street names, and historical plaques linked to the Confederacy.  All told, more than 100 items could be targeted for removal or renaming, she said.” Did you all get that number–over 100 items changed or removed that are part of your history. Sounds like a thorough cultural purge will be underway in the Big Easy. Does that give you the warm fuzzies??? And do you think they will quit after New Orleans? If you do then you are naive beyond belief and live in la-la land!

I have a generational question for all these Social Justice types. What will they do when, somewhere down the road, others come along that don’t like what they have put up and go to changing it all over again with a whole new set of “heroes” and names?  It wouldn’t be the first time in history that happened. This sort of thing went on back in Egypt during the days of the Pharaohs. It went on during the French Revolution when the Illuminati types tried to remove any reference to God. Guess what? That didn’t work. God is still here–the revolutionaries are not–many of them having kept their appointments with the guillotine.

However, in this country, it is all an ongoing part of the “reconstruction” that started after the War of Northern Aggression. The reconstruction crowd has been trying to remove God and historic white Christian culture from this country, especially in the South, for 150 years now, and they show no sign of letting up. If anything, in recent years, they are ratcheting up their efforts, feeling their opposition is wearing down. Is it?  In 2015 I saw push-back to their efforts to get all Confederate flags taken down. This year I have not seen very much. It’s like most folks down here are just sitting it out, watching the Leftists do their thing–and when they’ve completely dismantled our history and heritage, we’ll sit back and wonder what happened.

Now I don’t endorse anything like this debacle in Charlottesville. That almost seems like a set-up the more you read about it. But it seems to me that we have to find some legitimate way to defend our history and culture while we still have it. Otherwise, we will simply be deprive of it by our doing nothing. Any suggestions?
