Are Today’s Democrats (and many Republicans) Really Just Socialists?

by Al Benson Jr.

I just read an article on https://patriotpost.us by columnist David Limbaugh, for February 2nd entitled Democratic Leaders, Why Do You Find Patriotism Divisive?

Although he made some insightful comments, I think Mr. Limbaugh really missed where the Democratic Party, at leadership levels, is at today. Limbaugh said: “Obviously today’s Democratic Party (at least its leadership) has a problem with raw expressions of patriotism because Democrats don’t seem to look at America through anything but their distorted prism of Balkanized identity politics.” I can’t disagree with his assessment here. In their racist world view Democratic leaders view any expression of patriotism as “white supremacy” or “homophobia” or something else dreamed up by some Ivy League Leftist professor. Professor Artemas X. Goflunk at Goofus University  has stated that all whites are racist (except him, naturally) so it must be so. After all, the good professor would never lie to us, would he? Well, yes, as a matter of fact he would–and it wouldn’t bother him in the least. After all, “the ends justify the means.”

Limbaugh stated in his article, of Democrats,  that “They have no alternative agenda; everything they tried under Obama failed. Yet they are still promoting the same destructive ideas.” Of course everything tried under Obama failed. It was intended to! Obama was a socialist and his policies were intended to drag this country into some form of third world socialism and they figured if he wasn’t able to get that thorny job done then Hillary would come along and complete the mopping-up process. Hillary was really ticked when that didn’t work out for her. She’s still ticked that all of us “deplorables” were not willing to accept her brand of beneficent socialism–and her and all her friends (and accomplices) in the FBI, the DOJ, and other government agencies are still trying to unseat that usurper, Trump, so Hillary and her minions can once again begin to force feed us what they know is really best for us. And for some reason what’s “best” for us is always something that is best financially for them. But we are beginning to figure that out, to her chagrin.

As I look at the Democratic Party today I have to conclude that, at its leadership levels, it is completely socialist, if not Marxist. The agenda they promote and claim is so good for the country should make any thinking American absolutely cringe. Had Hillary been able to steal the election, where do you think your Second Amendment rights would be today? Where do you think your private property rights would be (regulated out of existence)?

In fact, if you want to discern the end results of a Clinton victory all you have to do is check out the ten points Karl Marx promoted in The Communist Manifesto, at the behest of his Illuminist masters.

Although they would stoutly deny it, today’s Democratic leadership is headed in that direction as fast as they dare go. They have been working to turn this country into a socialist paradise as grand as that of Cuba or Venezuela and they are tired of waiting. They want their socialism here, right now. The fact that Trump and a handful or reactionary Congressmen resist them irks them to no end.

However, as I note the Far Left socialistic bent of the Democratic Party, that should not be construed to mean that the Republican Party is pure as the driven snow by any means. There are almost as many socialists in the ranks of the Republican Establishment as there are amongst the Democrats–and they’ve been there lots longer.

If you want to begin to grasp how the early Republican Party (around the time of Fremont and Lincoln) embraced the Illuminist designs  written about by Marx in The Communist Manifesto, then drag your copy of Lincoln’s Marxists, if you have one, off that dusty bookshelf and reread pages 240-251.

Unfortunately, what we now have in Washington is a Deep State Swamp, composed of both Democrats and Republicans who have a vested interest in continuing to make sure that the American suckers finish last! What we must begin to do is to grasp the truth of Deep State socialism in both parties! That’s not to say that everyone in both parties is a socialist, but, if you study the situation, you begin to notice that the proclivity toward Deep State socialism gets progressively stronger the higher into the leadership of both parties you go. This is something the public at large needs to start grasping so they might know how to defend themselves from it accordingly.

How “History” Professors View the “Civil War”

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Many who will read this are already aware of how our current crop of “historians”–so called, view the War of Northern Aggression. However, some who read it may not be all that aware, and so this is written for those unaware ones who still labor under the naive delusion that the War was fought over slavery and that communism did not rear its ugly head in America until at least the 1930s. Well, it did rear its ugly head in the 30s–but it was the 1830s, not the 1930s. By the 1930s communism was already well established here. It’s just that no one bothered to inform the American public.

I spend considerable time on the internet scrounging around for information in those areas that concern me, and one of those areas is the record of communist and socialist infiltration in this country, both in the 19th and 20th centuries.

I recently ran across an article by Andrew Zimmerman, a professor of history at George Washington University. The article was written back in July of 2013 and, at that time, Professor Zimmerman was working on an international history of the American War of Northern Aggression. Of course he didn’t call it that.

He had some interesting commentary in his article that backed up what Donnie Kennedy and I said in our book Lincoln’s Marxists.  The title of his article was The Civil War Was a Victory for Marx and Working-Class Radicals. When I read that I thought “I wonder what some of the students in high school and college history classes would think of Zimmerman’s viewpoint if it were presented to their classes in this manner.” of course, thanks to decades of government school indoctrination that might not bother all of them, but it might bother some–and that “some” might ask embarrassing questions of their “history” teachers. To counteract that possibility the War is usually presented to our students as a noble Northern crusade to eradicate slavery in that mean old, racist, South. The fact that four slave states remained in the Union is seldom touched upon.

Zimmerman couches it in this manner, quite revelatory in its own way.  He says: “For revolutionary socialists, the Civil War was a decisive victory in an even larger struggle between democracy and private property.” The communists are really high on “democracy.” It’s one of their favorite euphemisms, but they don’t mean the same thing by it you have been taught to believe it is.

Professor Roy Colby, in his book A Communese-English Dictionary notes the communist understanding of democracy as: “a collectivistic dictatorship; a totalitarian state.” It’s interesting that the Founding Fathers all had a very dim view of Democracy. They felt it eventually led to tyranny. So what Professor Zimmerman is telling us, whether he even realizes it or not, is that the Civil War was a victory for the totalitarian state against the concept of private property. You folks that have never thought of it in those terms need to start trying to wrap your minds around that concept.

And Zimmerman, again, back up what Donnie Kennedy and I noted in Lincoln’s Marxists when he says: “Marx also followed the progress of the Civil War closely because so many of his fellow exiled European revolutionaries fought in the ranks of the Union Army. Defeated and sent into American exile after a wave of European revolutions in 1848-49, many discovered the struggle against slavery a more hopeful strategy than they have previously pursued. Revolutionary socialists were thus one of the many groups that won the Civil War. For them it was a decisive victory in an even larger struggle between democracy and private property.

How many of you have ever seen the results of the War of Northern Aggression presented in this fashion? Not many I’ll wager. What Zimmerman is telling you here, if you can begin to grasp it, is that the result of the War of Northern Aggression was a victory for communism against the right of private property–and by private property I don’t just mean slaves. Anyone who has read about Sherman’s March through Georgia and South Carolina knows the utter contempt Sherman and his “bummers” had for private property–all private property. They expended lots of time and effort destroying as much as they could in their gentle ministrations to an almost prostrate Confederacy. And they were especially hard on Christian Churches. Does that tell you anything? It should!

So communism, in one form or another, has been alive and well in this country for longer than most people care to think about. Zimmerman is probably not even aware of Donnie’s and my book, but his commentary in this article backs up just about everything we said in it, only in a little less detail.

I don’t know Professor Zimmerman, but from the way he writes I would assume he is a graduate of the University of Political Correctness. And, in his honesty,  he admits to the same things Donnie and I have written about. Seems I have read a passage in Scripture about something being confirmed in the mouths of two or three witnesses.

Smart Cars–Do They Equal Agenda 21?

by Al Benson Jr.

Just yesterday or the day before, I watched a news clip on one of the alt.right sites that was talking about the auto show in Las Vegas, Nevada that is going on now.

Now I am not a mechanical person by any means. This kind of thing does not fascinate me. I can remember old Ford Model T’s (my dad had one during the Second World War because there was not anything being made but military vehicles). I remember double-winger planes. There were still some of them around when I was a kid, so I belong to the “old school” I guess. There were even a handful of characters from the Old Western days still alive when I was a kid. So modern I am not, and I am not sure, seeing some of what I see down the road, that I want to be. It seems that much of what is on the horizon will limit what you can do, where you can go, and regulate what you see and do and how far you travel.

I have written in the past about the United Nations’ Agenda 21 project that, supposedly promotes “sustainability” (population regulation) as the way to go. The UN would like to round up all of us rural or country dwellers and force us into little two-by-twice apartments with about 200 feet of living space in huge mega-cities. That way they would prevent us from doing any traveling, especially out in the country and possibly taking any trips to see anyone away from where we live that they might not approve of. They have been trying to get US cities and towns to buy into this UN concept of what amounts to a giant POW camp for the general population. Some places have seen the light and are opting out of this potential UN gulag. Let’s hope more begin to see where this is going.

Some of what the UN is promoting with Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030 (the updated version) seems to be evident at this automotive show in Las Vegas. They have a new vehicle on display–a driverless auto that has no steering wheel or brakes. You don’t drive it–it drives you. It’s like a driverless taxi from what I can tell. If you have to go somewhere you call and this vehicle shows up and takes you to your destination and you pay for that with some kind of credit card of whatever, but apparently you don’t own it, you just pay when you need to use it. You can’t steer it, you can’t stop it, like I said, it drives you. As one who has traveled all over this country over the years and we went where we wanted to go, when we wanted to go, I ain’t sure I like this concept at all.

What is the idea behind this? is this supposed to start to curtail the private ownership of automobiles? It seems a step in that direction, along with the idea that people need to be herded into these UN-sponsored gulags and not allowed to go where they want to because going where they want to supposedly endangers the “sustainability” of the area you live in.

And who owns or controls these driverless cars? Some private company? The government? Whoever it is, they will have a record of where you go at all times, whether to the grocery store or to church, or to visit some friend that may have views the government does not approve of, hence you may be added to a list of “interesting” people to be watched.

I have often wondered just how much of the stuff promoted by the federal government anymore is a brainchild of the UN, with their Tower-of Babel delusions of One World government. We know that the UN is responsible for some programs that have been implanted in the public schools in this country. Do a Google search sometime and type in UNESCO and American Public Schools. You may not like what you find.

Even though Donald Trump is president, there are people in his administration that harbor a decided One World government worldview. That’s where they want to take us, whether we want to go there or not. The UN is NOT our friend–but it wants to be our keeper!

I’m not sure where these driverless cars fit into this, but they could be a major part of the program designed to keep us, not down on the farm, but rather out in the local gulag. Driverless cars is not an idea I would embrace and I hope the driving public takes a good look at this concept and gives it a huge thumbs down!

Happy New Year–We’re Not Updating Your InfoWars Connection!

by Al Benson Jr.

I just received, on 12/27. a New Year’s gift from Google. They decided not to update my InfoWars connection. All the other pages or email lists that I have listed seem to be getting updated daily except the InfoWars one. My first thought was “how petty!” But then I remembered that Google is one of those sources that had decided that the American public is better off if they only get one side of the story–the Deep State side. They don’t need to be aware of any of the rest of it–all that involves way too much thinking and decision making and our public school “educated” kids are just not up for that anymore, and unfortunately, neither are most of their parents (or grandparents).

I had read somewhere just recently that Google, Facebook, and one other Establishment outfit whose name escapes me at the moment, had all decided that they were going to start censoring what their readers got. Oh they don’t call it “censoring.” They have some fancy title for it that their executives were taught in school when the teacher had nothing better to do. But no matter what fancy handle you hang  on it, it all amounts to trying to keep as much information from their readership as possible in areas that make them queasy.

I don’t think this new omission is particularly aimed at me but it probably a policy aimed at anyone that has InfoWars listed as part of their daily reading. This forces me to go to another server to read the daily InfoWars updates, a minor inconvenience, but one I am willing to undertake, as InfoWars gives me information I seldom get from other sources and usually gives it to me ahead of what other sources do end up with it. So I will switch to the other server and keep up with the daily InfoWars commentary, and while I am there I will also check out updates for all the other pages I check daily, and there are a fair number of them.

Having two blog spots and publishing two newsletters puts me in the position of needing to keep up with current events as well as the historical material I write about. Just checking my email is good for about three hours a day, especially since the major uptick in anti-Confederate hysteria emerged a couple years ago.

So, if Google has decided that I (and many others) don’t need to be kept aware of what InfoWars publishes on a daily basis then all they do is force us onto other venues that are still willing to provide what we need.

The public today is not like the public in Nixon’s day, when all you had to get info on Watergate were the usual suspects–the three main media outlets–all controlled by the same people with the same statist worldview. Today you have the alt.right media and there is enough of that so the Establishment will never be able to shove Pandora back into the box again like they used to.

Today, the information is out there (just like “the truth is out there”) for those willing to look for it and there are sites like InfoWars, The Drudge Report, World Net Daily and a whole host of others putting out documentation that makes the Deep State absolutely cringe–and it’s about time!

So Google and Facebook and other Deep State outfits can withhold all they want, but eventually it’s going to get out there no matter what they do and they might as well get used to that.

Deo Vindice!

Chicago Needs To Think Twice Before Begging For UN “Peacekeeping” Troops

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

So the One World Government crowd in Chicago thinks they are doing the right thing by requesting United Nations “peacekeeping” troops to patrol their streets to root out crime and dispense with firearms? If you only had a clue as to what you are asking for–well, maybe some of you do and the idea doesn’t bother you. You feel you are taking an important step into the corridors of potential One World government and if only you show the way, others may follow your shining example.

Though others may try to follow your example, they will curse you for it in the end, once they wake up and find out what you have unleashed in this country.

“Huntin’ and peckin” around on the internet, I found an article by Declan Walsh Nicola Byrne on http://www.globalpolicy.org from way back in the ancient days of December of 2002. It was quietly titled UN Peacekeepers Criticized. Byrne started off the article with: “An Irish soldier  serving as a United Nations peacekeeper in Eritrea has been caught making pornographic videos of local women and is now serving a jail sentence in Ireland…the Eritrean government has condemned the activities of the Irish defense force and questioned its continued presence  in the war-scarred state in the Horn of Africa… Yesterday a government spokesman said ‘these people call themselves peacekeepers, when in fact all they want is a long holiday and a chance to fool around with our women. They do not respect our country, our culture, or our people’.” Later in the same article, it was noted that: “United Nations peacekeeping troops have been involved in a catalogue of crimes and scandals across the globe. During the UN peacekeeping mission in Somalia, it was claimed Canadian, Belgian, and Italian soldiers were involved in torture and murder. An inquiry by the Canadian government of a young Somali man in 1993,  found that he had been murdered by its troops and that a senior officer had lied  in an attempt to cover up the atrocity. Two soldiers were jailed.” This is not the only article I have read about this sort of thing. Could it be that the UN’s version of “peacekeeping” is somewhat different than ours?

Several instances are mentioned in a book I called attention to in my recent article on the UN. Author William Norman Grigg observed in his book Freedom On The Alter–The UN’s Crusade Against God & Family, on page 2, that “Survivors and witnesses of the UN’s 1961 ‘peacekeeping’ massacre in Katanga, a province of the former Belgian Congo, regard the ‘Blue Berets’ as something less than heroic.  Religious scholar Thomas Molnar, who has ample firsthand experience with UN ‘peacekeeping’ activities testified: ‘I have often walked in the footsteps of United Nations troops intervening for peace and seen the pillage, rape, and injustice. In the ex-Belgian Congo, Indian UN soldiers were feared like the plague’.”

And on page 3, Mr. Grigg observed that: “In 1994, UN ‘peacekeeping’ troops in Mozambique purchased sexual favors from impoverished children. In 1988, the director of the Belgian UNICEF committee was convicted of participation in a child sex and prostitution ring; the organization’s Brussels office was used to manufacture child pornography, much of it involving children of North African descent…Somalians will recall that during the UN’s ‘Operation Restore Hope,’ civilians were massacred  indiscriminately by Pakistani ‘peacekeepers’.”

Now I have to admit that reading about some of this stuff is pretty gruesome. I don’t particularly enjoy writing about it. There are other subjects I’d much rather deal with, but, people need to be aware of some of what has gone on under UN auspices in the name of “peace.” The United Nations gives you the same kind of “peace” you get from the Communists!

So, with the politicians in Chicago pandering for UN participation in their city, we have to ask, is this something we really want in this country? Even in Chicago??? The city council in Chicago needs to realize what they are asking for–if some of them don’t know already. Years ago someone said to me, and I never forgot it “Be careful what you ask for–you may get it.” I recall one instance in my  life where this came true and it drove the point home.

The UN may have a record of “peacekeeping. But, is it the kind of “peace” we want, and at what cost, and to who? The last thing you want in this country is United Nations “peacekeepers.” The “peace” you get from them may be the “peace” of the grave!

Trump Gone By Christmas?

by Al Benson Jr.

Back in July the Democrats (with subtle Republican help) pushed a bill to remove Trump from office by use of the 25th Amendment. It didn’t float back then, but the Deep State is nothing if not persistent when it comes to carrying out its agenda to Make America Last. So they are considering another go at it. Recently we had a Democratic (socialist?) congressman introduce a bill to impeach Trump. Naturally at this point it failed, and I think he realized it would, but the plan was to get the idea out there in front of people so when it came up again, (as it will) people would have been conditioned to the idea.

Now there is all manner of stuff on the internet this evening about how the Deep State has planned to make sure Trump is out of office by Christmas. These people are cultural Marxists. They don’t quit until their objective is obtained–something those on our side have not even begun to grasp yet.

Lots of people think, with the Republicans in the majority in Congress, this would never happen. Don’t be too sure. Just because someone wears the label of “Republican” doesn’t mean for a New York minute that he is not part of the Deep State or a raving liberal, or worse yet, a quiet, subtle liberal who hates what Trump has been doing and wants desperately to put it all back to where it would have been if Hillary had been elected.

The real name of the game is to get Trump out of office any way they have to so they can begin to dismantle all he has done and give back to us the socialist garbage Obama left us with. To them that would be Nirvana.

One of those who wants Trump gone noted, awhile back, that “This is a president who seems increasingly at odds with everyone and everything around him.” The reason for that might just be that Trump is beginning to realize that those he has surrounded himself with do not have his best interests at heart, nor do they have the best interests of the country and its people at heart.

You only have a week now until Christmas. So keep your eye on what happens in Washington in that week.

The Deep State is working on a coup that will remove your president and his agenda and will put you back into the hands of Hillary and her handlers.

For all his faults, Trump has a vision that will help ordinary Americans to build better lives for themselves and their families. The Deep State does not want you to have that!  They want you under their thumb–or their jackboot, whichever they can reach you with first!

Ultimately, their war is not with Trump–it is with you (and me).

Christmas As War

by Al Benson Jr.

It is an obvious fact now that, for several years, there has been a subtle (and often not-so subtle) effort underway to de-Christianize Christmas. The politically correct among us would never dare utter those forbidden words “Merry Christmas.” Utterly unthinkable! We must all be programmed to say “Happy Holidays” or “Season’s Greetings” but never Merry Christmas. To openly acknowledge Jesus Christ and the Christmas season has become something beyond the pale–maybe not so much with Trump in office, but most certainly when Obama was in office. Obama claimed he was a Christian but he acted like a Muslim, and as they say, “the proof of the pudding is in the eating.” And so the liberal/Marxist mindset is at war with Christ and Christmas. The memory of  Christ and Christmas must be stamped out nationwide just as surely as Confederate symbols must be stamped out in the South (and most other places too).

For years outfits like the ADL (Anti-Defamation League) and others have railed against Christmas as a Christ-centered season. They’ve managed to get most of the big retail places on their side. No one sells Christmas trees anymore. Now they sell “holiday trees” and government schools no longer have Christmas vacations, now they have “winterbreak” or some other such neutered holiday. And what do most Christians do?  Some are distressed about it, as they should be, and they feel they are under cultural attack, which they are.

But let’s look at the whole scenario in a little different light. Actually, if we approach it correctly,  Christmas is war against the World System, and the Great Swamp in this country. And the attacks against the truth of Jesus Christ and the idea of Christmas are not really new. They have gone on since King Herod had all the children in Bethlehem under two years old slain in hopes of killing Christ. The lunatics that inspired and ran the French Revolution thought to rid themselves of Jesus Christ by obliterating His memory from their country and starting all over again with the year one. All these ludicrous attempts failed miserably, and those attempts going forward today via the Deep State and others, will fail also.

One thing can be said, though, for these anti-Christ revolutionaries–they recognize the true meaning of Christmas where many culture-blind Westerners do not anymore. The revolutionaries know what Christmas means for them–ultimate defeat! They were not able to rid the world of Christ in His own time, and they will not be able to now. As long as Christians continue to celebrate the birth of Christ in a Christian manner, they are, in actuality, committing an act of war against the world, the flesh, and the devil–and no matter what he does, the devil is powerless to stop them. Christian worship is an act of war! It says to the devil “you did your best to eradicate Christ and failed, and we weekly celebrate His victory over you, and even though final victory is not yet attained on this earth, someday it will be and even those who hate Christ will be forced to bow the knee to Him.”

This is what Christmas commemorates–Christ’s first coming into this world that His ultimate victory might be made known and celebrated–and that grates on His enemies no end.

The official Christmas season does not end until January 6th, which is Epiphany–the revealing of Christ to the gentiles. So, until then, let us not hesitate to celebrate His birth, His ultimate victory over the World System, whether we live to see it or not. And let us make sure we wish various and sundry people a resounding Merry Christmas!

“Sovereign” States or Federal Satrapies?

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

There was an article on the Zero Hedge website back on last June 27th, written by Michael Snyder, which had originally appeared on the Economic Collapse blog. It was about how much land the federal government “owns” in our Western states. From the looks of the map that appeared with the article they “own” almost half ot it. The article noted that: “Today, the feds control approximately  640 million acres of land, and after decades of very poor management, many are calling on the states to take a larger role. This is particularly true in the 11 western states where the federal government collectively  owns 47 percent of all the land.”

Yep, you read that figure right–47 percent of it all. For instance, in Nevada, the feds “own” 84% of all the land in the state.  That leaves 16% of the state for ordinary folks. The feds “own” 64% of Utah, 61% of both Idaho and Alaska and 52% of Oregon. By the time you get to Wyoming the feds only “own” a measly 48% of the state. What a comedown from Nevada that must be for them!

I have to ask the question–does the public, ordinary folks, only owning 16% of the state they live in really constitute it being a “sovereign” state, or is it still really a federal territory that has been labeled a state for the sake of convenience (and electoral votes)?

Another pertinent question might be, which is more important–who “owns” it or who controls it? If the general public “owns” it  but can’t do much with it, then the federal government that controls  it is the actual de facto owner, isn’t it? It’s somewhat akin to the situation with the property tax that I have written about before on several occasions. You “own” your house and possess a deed with your name on it saying you own it. Yet, if you fail to pay the yearly governmental rent then some unit of government can come and take “your” property and do what they will with it. So, in the long run, who is the real owner–the man with his name on the deed–or the governmental agency that can take it away from him if he doesn’t pay their yearly “rent?” Mostly, we don’t want to think about this kind of thing. We should.

There was an article in the New York Times for August 25th of this year about Trump’a new Secretary of the Interior proposing shrinking of four national monuments in the West–so designated by King Barack the First (and hopefully the last). One of these was the Bears Ears, over west of Blanding, Utah. You can find it on your road atlas. Obama created a national monument there that was 1.35 million acres in size–land locked up so the public could do nothing with it.  Mr. Zinke, Trump’s Secretary of the Interior wants to reduce the Bears Ears monument to 160,000 acres. I hope he makes it, but even 160,000 acres is a lot for a monument with the Bears Ears as its centerpiece.  It’s pretty country there. We’ve been through some of it several times over the years, but it doesn’t rate another 160,000 closed-down acres for a national monument. Cutting it in half and designating half of it for a monument at the Bears Ears would be plenty, but then that wouldn’t give the feds control over all the 1.35 million acres–and control is what they really want. Control in the name of creating new “public’ monuments and “recreation areas” where you can only go if you follow their rules.

The owner of Land & Livestock international (look it up on the internet) has observed that “Transferring these lands to the States would be a great improvement, but would not necessarily be the best ultimate end…These lands need to be returned to their rightful owners (and/or their heirs and assigns)–the families who have 4 or 5 generations of sweat equity in the lands (or those who have rightfully purchased those property rights through  voluntary exchange). I am hopeful but I doubt seriously that we will ever see it happen.”

In the case of some of that “public” land near the Bundy Ranch in Nevada, one might be led to question just how much of this “public” land has been of use to Harry Reid and his son, or to Hillary with her Uranium One deal. Lots of big bucks being made there off some of that land that, we the public, supposedly own.

Bigotry Against White Southerners Is ALWAYS In Season

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

As most honest people realize by now, liberals, socialists, and communists are all cultural Marxists, which means, for them, that it is perfectly permissible to do unto others what they condemn others (usually unrighteously) for doing unto them. In fact, for them, it’s mandatory.  For them, their day is not complete unless they are actively assailing someone on the political or religious Right, while blaming those folks for even daring to defend themselves. “Condemn others and elevate yourself” is their watchword.

I read an interesting article on The Hill by Jacqueline Thomsen for November 12th, 2017, the headline for which was Poll: Nearly half of white Southerners feel like they’re under attack.  All I can say to that is–it’s about time! White Southerners are under attack–and have been now for decades. Their culture, their history, their faith, even their Southern accents, are and have been under assault for longer than I care to think about. Most of them have been totally oblivious to it. It would really be nice if some of  them, lots more of them, were starting to wake up and smell the coffee. It would be really nice to think they are finally starting to get the picture and beginning to push back!

Thomsen observed that “Nearly half of white Americans living in the South feel like they’re under attack, a new Winthrop University poll found. Forty six percent of white Southerners said they agree or strongly agree that white people are under attack in the U.S….And 30 percent of all respondents in the poll agreed when asked if America needs to protect and preserve its white European heritage. More than half the respondents disagreed with this statement. Forty percent of respondents said they believed that Confederate statues should remain as is.” However, 25 percent said some sort of plaque should be added to “contextualize” (adulterate) the meaning of the statue. I wonder if that 25 percent would feel the same way about a statue of Martin Luther King Jr or socialist Carl Schurz.

Problem is, you don’t dare try to “contextualize” anyone else’s history but that of the white folks. To do that to anyone else’s statues or cultural monuments would be politically incorrect (racist), but it’s perfectly okay to do it to those of the white folks. In fact, it’s part of the game. It’s called cultural genocide if you do it to anyone but white folks, but for the white folks it’s perfectly okay to do it. You see, it’s open season on them 24/7, all year. It’s good that some of them are finally beginning to wake up and realize what’s being done to them.

I have read so much Marxist drivel from college professors and other PH.Ds (piled higher and deeper) about how all whites should be ashamed of being white and should work to repudiate their “whiteness” while taking pains to embrace every other pagan culture out there to express their “solidarity” with the world, that it just about makes me sick. The Lord made all people who and what they are, and to openly repudiate what the Lord created, the way He created it, is a repudiation of God and His perfect plan. Not that this would bother some of those people. The same principle is true for those people that want sex changes. They refuse to be satisfied with what God made the way He made it, so they plan to improve on it. They seem to think they have more wisdom than God, which is untrue, not that you could convince them of it.

The same situation holds true for Southern accents. An article I read in The Washington Times for November 7th, by David Keene, noted, of a person he wrote about “…he could never vote for Mr. Carter (back in 1976) because of his ‘Southern accent’.” As a Southerner, he “talked funny.” Now I had my problems with Jimmy Carter and I didn’t vote for him, but it sure wasn’t  because of him, as a Southerner, “talking funny.” His politics were much too cozy with those of David Rockefeller and the Trilateral Commission to suit me.

Could it be said that not voting for a person because you don’t like the way he talks makes you a bigot? Well, in the world of the cultural Marxist it doesn’t seem to–unless, of course, you are a Southerner! And if that happens to be the case, then, to those people, you are automatically a bigot–from the first breath you draw!

Over the years I’ve been called a racist, an anti-Semite, an Islamaphobe, and a “deplorable” as well as several other things I do not care to list here. Most of these epithets are designed to stifle reasonable debate or discussion. Folks who get called these names need to realize that fact and keep talking anyway. When folks throw some of these names at me, I don’t let it stop me from saying what I have to say, and that bothers some of them, because nasty names are supposed to shut you up and they don’t always. I just tell them–I don’t care what you call me. Just don’t call me late for supper.

Conservatives Continue to Lose Because They Just Don’t Know the History

by Al Benson Jr.

Christians and other patriotic folks, even with Trump in office, continue to lose the battle for our culture because we just don’t know our history. And what’s worse, many of us just don’t care to learn if it goes against our preconceived notions or what we were taught in those indoctrination centers we insist on referring to as “public schools.”

I almost can’t count the times in the past ten years or so that I have gotten “alarm” bulletins from various patriotic and conservative groups that are suddenly up in arms because someone is supposedly threatening to do away with the pledge of allegiance. It seems that they literally view this pledge as being on a par with the Declaration of Independence. Folks, I’ve got a news flash for you all–it ain’t! And if it was done away with tomorrow we would not be the worse off.

According to one of these “alarm” notices that I got today (11/11/17) the Washington Post  claims the pledge is “…steeped in bigotry…origins in nativism and white nationalism.” To put it bluntly, such assertions are a crock.

I will defend our Confederate monuments. I will defend other historic statues and monuments that reflect our Christian culture. I will defend the National Anthem, written by a Christian man. I will not defend the pledge of allegiance. Why? Because I know its history and the people so frantic to defend it don’t seem to.

In our book Lincoln’s Marxists Donnie Kennedy and I have dealt with the pledge of allegiance  and its dubious “Christian” author on pages 30 and 46. If you have the book, check it out. If you haven’t bothered, maybe you should get it.

On page 30 we wrote: “For most modern day Christians it is very difficult to think of anyone being a Christian and a socialist, let alone a communist at the same time. These very same Christians will dutifully place their right hand over their heart and repeat the pledge of allegiance to the United States flag, a pledge that was written by one of America’s most notable Christian socialists, Francis Bellamy.”This man, who incidentally, was a minister in a church in Massachusetts, was the cousin of socialist Edward Bellamy. We said that: “Each time an American places his hand over his heart and recites the pledge of allegiance, he is repeating a pledge inspired by and written by a utopian socialist ideologue. Francis Bellamy’s denial of the deity of Christ, his denial of the resurrection of Christ, and his rejection of the Bible as the infallible Word of God led to his removal as a Baptist minister. Born and raised in Massachusetts, a short stay in the South  was enough to convince Bellamy  that the South was hopelessly tied to orthodox Christianity even to the point of rejecting such modern and progressive theories as evolution. Francis Bellamy believed that the defining event in American history was the Civil War, and he admitted that he desired that his pledge would reinforce everything that the arguments of Hamilton…the speeches of William H. Seward and Lincoln (and) the Civil War had accomplished.” So there is the true origin of your “pledge of allegiance”–the parting shot of “reconstruction” at the South–one nation “indivisible.” And if that is true, then your Confederate ancestors, and mine, were all traitors. So stop and reflect on that before you so eagerly recite this spurious pledge, in the name of “patriotism.”

One might  almost be led to wonder if the Washington Post’s real agenda was to get ill-informed Christians and patriots all wound up so they would expend their time and effort eagerly defending a major tenet of socialism–one nation indivisible!

How many Christians and conservatives will jump on this bandwagon and throw themselves into an effort to defend the pledge because they just don’t know the real history???  You think it ever occurs to the socialists and the One World Government crowd to get us chasing our own tails this way? Of course it does!  And we fall for it every time! They pull the same stunt on Christians with the Battle Hymn of the Republic, a thoroughly Unitarian dirge that has appeared in more Christian hymn books than I like to think about.

Until we get serious about learning our real history we will continue  to fall prey to every “hot button” issue the Leftists continue to strew in our path and waste our time and effort defending what is really socialism when we should be defending our God-given liberties.
