“Everything that America deplores in Washington today is what the Confederacy fought against.”
“The liberals feel they are on a roll, having trashed states’ rights by railroading compulsory acceptance of homosexual marriage through the Supreme Court. Now, they feel, is the time to airbrush out of history every tradition that is an obstacle to their new, rootless, alien society based on intolerant political correctness. The epitome of everything they detest and fear is the Confederate Flag, so that is now the target of a hate campaign so fanatical and irrational as to seem barely sane.”
What you just read came from a writer for Breitbart. Because of my family history, I can DESTROY every evil idea these Rebel Devils – RAISE! Trump is raising a hateful victory flag with every appointment to his cabinet. The Trumpsters have declared war on half of America, and they hope you don’t notice – until its too late.
If you line up all those who voted, every other one would be a Trumpster. If Trump is all business, and he turned America into a giant mall, and then hung this sign at all the entrances…..”WHITES ONLY”……then he is not the business geneius he claims he is. He is a RACIST! He has given much information in public that says he is a racist. Look at the Democrats as the second best Consumors and Shoppers in the World. Why crush them, weaken their spirit, and make them feel UNWANTED?
When Obama was first elected, many whites wanted to blieve he hung up a sign that read….”BLACKS ONLY”. Trump has catered to this false claim, and surrounded himself with a CIVAL WAR CABINET that is prepared to got to war with half of America – and get revenge! Not for the election of Obama, but for losing the Civil War to the Northern Union. Hillary lost the Northern Union. The Southern Trumpsters will take no prisoners. The neo-Confederates will try to finish off OUR INCLUSIVE BOHEMIAN CULTURE. We must set up a perminent firewall. We must become EXCLUSIVE. We must exclude WHITE HATERS. We must not make Art or Music for them. The Muses are on our side. We must boycotte their stores. They created two Americas so they can make our life difficult. We must create a America that caters to our way of life.
Does anyone remember John Ashcroft? Ashcroft was Attorney General who firted with Neo-Confederates who have DRAWN LINES IN THE SAND in order to divide us. It is remarkable that THEY convinced 13% of black male voters to cross those lines, and be oner with them. This must not happen again. We must put aside all our lines in the sand, and look to this evil flag as the symbol of what divides us. We must identify who flies it on a internet site. We can place it on stores that cater to hate, and boycotte them. We can create bonds with foreign markets and foreigners who hate Trump’s Neo-Confederate Fighters and Haters. They are in the position to make peace with all Americans. They have chosen to go to war! So be it!
In December 2000, following his Senatorial defeat, Ashcroft was chosen for the position of U.S. attorney general by president-elect George W. Bush. He was confirmed by the Senate by a vote of 58 to 42, with most Democratic senators voting against him, citing his prior opposition to using forced busing to achieve desegregation, and their opposition to Ashcroft’s pro-life views.
“The League has also been a leading advocate of defending the use of the Confederate Flag in Southern states…. In response to a petition encouraging Sen. Ashcroft to condemn the League of the South, the Council of Conservative Citizens began circulating their own petition praising Ashcroft for his comments. The Council grew out of the old white Citizens Councils — the principal organization that fought for segregation in the South during the civil rights era.”
In the column posted on July 1, 2015, two weeks after the Emanuel AME killings in Charleston, while Bannon served as Breitbart chief executive, writer Gerald Warner praised the Confederate flag’s “glorious heritage” and called the Confederacy “a patriotic and idealistic cause.” The author called Republicans who spoke out against the flag as “weaklings.” Ten days after the post, Gov. Nikki Haley signed a bi-partisan bill to remove the Confederate flag from outside the Statehouse. Strom Thurmond’s youngest son was among the measure’s supporters.
Two specialists on the political dynamics of neo-Confederate and white nationalist groups in the United States today commented on aspects of racial politics and John Ashcroft, the nominee for attorney general.
For anyone who knows the history of the religious right, the possible revocation of tax-exempt status for claimed religious belief is a potent flashpoint. In his book, Thy Kingdom Come: An Evangelical’s Lament, religion historian Randall Balmer argues that contrary to conventional wisdom, which Balmar calls the “abortion myth”, evangelical voters were not propelled to political activism by the supreme court’s 1973 decision in Roe v Wade.
Instead, the issue that mobilized these voters was the IRS’s 1975 revocation of the tax-exempt status of the segregationist Bob Jones University. Rightwing religious architect Paul Weyrich told Balmer that it was “the federal government’s moves against Christian schools” that actually “enraged the Christian community”.
Bob Jones University claimed its ban on interracial dating and admission of students in interracial marriages was rooted in the Bible. It did not end its ban on interracial dating until 2000. The IRS’s decision – which went through protracted litigation that ultimately ended when the supreme court let the revocation stand – was in response to new IRS regulations and a 1972 Supreme Court case holding that educational institutions with racially discriminatory policies were not entitled to tax exemption.
“The Religious Right arose as a political movement for the purpose, effectively, of defending racial discrimination at Bob Jones University and at other segregated schools.”
Denying tax-exempt status to racially discriminatory schools – regardless of whether they claim their religion commands it – is not the only issue which the IRS can lawfully examine an applicant’s or organization’s activities. Under IRS regulations, tax-exempt organizations “may not have purposes or activities that are illegal or violate fundamental public policy”. The Bob Jones University case is just one example of the IRS applying this test. Its treatment of anti-abortion groups may be another.
The night they hauled old Dixie down…? In your dreams, Barack. And that goes for you too, Bill and Hillary, and all the other Beltway “liberal” control freaks. The American left is in a feeding frenzy, cynically exploiting the tragic murders of nine black worshippers in a Charleston church to promote its agenda of cultural genocide against conservatism, tradition and the South.
The liberals feel they are on a roll, having trashed states’ rights by railroading compulsory acceptance of homosexual marriage through the Supreme Court. Now, they feel, is the time to airbrush out of history every tradition that is an obstacle to their new, rootless, alien society based on intolerant political correctness. The epitome of everything they detest and fear is the Confederate Flag, so that is now the target of a hate campaign so fanatical and irrational as to seem barely sane.
A White House spokesman said last week that President Obama has maintained for years that the Confederate flag “should be taken down and placed in a museum where it belongs”. Some members of Congress are also demanding the removal from beneath the Capitol dome of several statues of Confederate leaders, including Jefferson Davis, the president of the Confederacy. The dean of Washington National Cathedral has called for two stained glass windows that depict the Confederate flag to be replaced. If Jefferson Davis’s statue is “divisive”, will they also demolish the Lincoln Memorial celebrating his opponent?
Further afield, Mayor Mitch Landrieu of New Orleans has called for a debate over the future of a statue in the city of Robert E. Lee and the renaming of a roundabout called Lee Circle to “reflect who we are as a people”. National retailers such as Walmart, Amazon, Sears, eBay and Etsy have rushed to remove items featuring the Confederate flag from their websites, though Walmart made a cake decorated with the Isil jihadist flag when a man who had been refused a cake with a Confederate flag requested it.
Google blocked digital ads that showed the flag and manufacturers pledged to stop producing it. But Nazi and Communist flags continue to be marketed on many American websites. At the outer fringe of irrationality, film critic Lou Lumenick, in the Washington Post, made a scathing attack on Gone With the Wind, the most iconic American film of the first half of the 20th century. It also resulted in the first award of an Oscar to a black actor. Lumenick did not, as some people stunned by his diatribe assumed, call for a ban on the film. But the attempt by the left to deride people who thought a ban was coming ignored the fact that any liberal denunciation of a cultural work almost routinely leads to a prohibition, so the reaction was perfectly logical.
Flags, statues, church windows, street names, films, novels, even an elementary school in California named after Robert E Lee – all are threatened with being swept into oblivion by a tsunami of destructive liberal triumphalism. The object is to disinherit and eradicate the historical memory and distinctive culture of millions of Americans. It is a second scorched-earth devastation of the South, cultural this time rather than material. This is Obama’s March to the Sea.
While your supporters are trashing the monuments and reputations of the forefathers of so many Americans, Barack, you might just want to remind us again which state of the Union, north or south, your ancestors resided in during the traumatic years 1861- 1865? Or did Kenya not have a dog in that fight? The Confederacy was not a callous conspiracy to enforce slavery, but a patriotic and idealistic cause for which 490,000 men were killed, wounded or taken captive. The Civil War was not fought over slavery, but in defence of states’ rights. As for secession, the very existence of the United States derived from its secession from the British Crown. Why did the South, then, not have the right to secede in turn from a Union grown intolerable to it, with Abraham Lincoln assuming the role of George III?
The attempt to demonise Robert E. Lee, a great gentleman and Christian soldier, is obscene. Lee was more critical of slavery than were the Northern generals Ulysses S. Grant and William Tecumseh Sherman. In a letter to his wife on 27 December 1856, which he could not have imagined anyone else would ever see, Lee wrote that “slavery as an institution, is a moral & political evil in any Country”.
American liberals have just struck another blow against states’ rights by benefiting from the whim of just one “floating” Supreme Court justice to enforce homosexual marriage at federal level. When a supreme court is recognised as having a bloc of “liberal” judges – a partisan alignment more appropriate to a political assembly – neutral justice no longer exists. Everything that America deplores in Washington today is what the Confederacy fought against.
With a Republican governor pressing to remove the Confederate battle flag from the monument to the South’s dead sons in the South Carolina State House grounds, conservatives could be forgiven for despairing, not at the assaults from the enemy without, but at the treason of the RINOs within (Jeb Bush, too, has jumped on the anti-flag bandwagon). Weaklings are now routinely subverted by a false sense of guilt induced by liberal propaganda and media hype.
But like their Marxist predecessors in the Soviet Union, the culture warriors of the left cannot be appeased by any concession: they rightly interpret it as weakness and demand more. Those who initiated identity politics are attempting to obliterate the Southern identity. There is only one response: defiance. Every tree, every rooftop, every picket fence, every telegraph pole in the South should be festooned with the Confederate battle flag. Hoist it high and fly it with pride, it proclaims a glorious heritage.
Burghart is director of the Building Democracy Initiative at the Center for New Community. The initiative works to counter the white nationalist movement in a 10-state region across the Midwest. “Sen. John Ashcroft gave an interview and legitimacy to one of the leading white nationalist groups in the country,” Burghart said today. “The Senate Judiciary Committee should focus on Sen. Ashcroft’s endorsement of Southern Partisan.” Burghart added: “Southern Partisan and its publisher the League of the South have a long history of promoting bigotry. The League of the South opposes the idea of ‘egalitarianism’ between the races and argues that Southern whites should not ‘give control over their civilization and its institution to another race, whether it be native blacks or Hispanic immigrants.’ To accomplish this goal, the League advocates overturning the 14th Amendment to the Constitution and contends that ‘secession is the best way to restore good government to the South.’ The League has also been a leading advocate of defending the use of the Confederate Flag in Southern states…. In response to a petition encouraging Sen. Ashcroft to condemn the League of the South, the Council of Conservative Citizens began circulating their own petition praising Ashcroft for his comments. The Council grew out of the old white Citizens Councils — the principal organization that fought for segregation in the South during the civil rights era.”
MARTIN A. LEE
Lee is the author of The Beast Reawakens; (Little, Brown & Co.; Routledge), a book about contemporary neo-fascism. He said today: “The diverse ethnic make-up of George W. Bush’s cabinet nominees — including African Americans Gen. Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice — has deflected attention from one of the most troubling developments in contemporary U.S. politics: the ascendance of the far right, neo-Confederate faction within the Republican Party. GOP heavyweights Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott and Attorney General-designate John Ashcroft have well-documented ties to hard-core, neo-Confederate organizations (the Council of Conservative Citizens and Southern Partisan, respectively) that equate race-mixing with genocide and routinely defend the legacy of slavery. But today’s more image-conscious white supremacists eschew heavy-handed master race rhetoric. Instead they couch their arguments in coded language that recasts bigotry as ethnic pride. They claim to be for whites rather than against people of color. They talk about preserving white identity and protecting the rights of European-Americans, which are allegedly under assault. Trumpeting what has since become the standard GOP line on ‘giveaway programs’ and ‘special preferences’ for minorities, white supremacists maintain that their deteriorating status in society is primarily a consequence of ‘reverse discrimination’ aimed at oppressed white people — not the result of global economic forces and social processes that are having a disruptive impact on almost everyone.”
