Honoring Our Dead

On Memorial Day, it is right that we remember those who died for our freedoms, even if they were not successful in their cause.

General Patrick Cleburne warned what was in store for the South should it lose the war.  He wrote
It means that the history of this heroic struggle will be written by the enemy; that our youth will be trained by Northern school teachers; will learn from Northern school books their version of the war; will be impressed by all the influences of history and education to regard our gallant dead as traitors, our maimed veterans as fit objects for derision.
Everything the good General predicted has come true.

God bless our Confederate dead, and may we never forget them.

BAN THE FLAG! Join the Campaign!

It is the flag of oppression, the flag of lies, the flag of ignorance.  The flag of extremists, the flag of an increasingly totalitarian ideology.

Join us in banning this flag from public display, anywhere, lest someone sane become offended.

Feel free to use this graphic on your websites or blogs.  Spread the word!


Because one good turn deserves another....

Support for the Confederate Flag Grows on FaceBook

The idiot legislature of our Looney-Tunes state of California has passed a law to ban the display or sale of Confederate flags on state property.  I will happily and willingly break this law at the very first opportunity.  What we need is a group of us to visit the State Capitol grounds in Sacramento, and take turns selling each other small Confederate flags, say, for 10 cents each.  Someone can film it, and we can then put the film on YouTube.

This law is so unconstitutional as to defy the imagination.  It deserves not only our contempt, but our open defiance.

This new law has been discussed on at least three FaceBook forums recently, and the commenters were overwhelmingly in support of the flag.  Many discussed contempt for California.  I find this trend most encouraging.  Almost none of the commenters were in any way offended by the Confederate flag, and recognized it as a heritage symbol and an American flag.

Two Good Books That I Recommend

I have read two worthy books in the past two weeks, ones that I recommend.  They are:

1.  The Path to National Suicide - an Essay on Immigration and Multiculturalism, by Lawrence Auster.  This book explains how, due to liberal ideology, our borders were opened in 1965, and how the resulting transformation of America's ethnic composition helped fuel the ideology of multiculturalism which is changing the ethnic composition of America in radical ways.  Auster does not argue that all non-European immigration be halted, but that it is occurring too much and too fast for new immigrants to be successfully assimilated into our Anglo-Saxon, Judeo-Christian culture.  Third world immigration should be slowed to a fraction of what it is now.  The demographics of America prior to the 1965 immigration act should be restored and preserved, in order to retain our culture, forms of government and traditions.

I found the pamphlet very well written and argued.

2. The Myths of Slavery, by Walter D. Kennedy.  The actual history of slavery in the United States includes the North's enormous culpability in the institution, as well as its hypocrisy.  The author convincingly refutes the many slanders and falsehoods about the Confederacy, the Southern states, and the institution of African slavery.  Note:  exposing the whole truth about slavery is not "defending slavery," so please don't go there.  If you adore Lincoln as a demi-god and like to repeat the simplistic falsehoods of the Northern Myth, you won't like this book -- and that's why you should read it.

There is no way you can honor, respect or admire the Yankee invasion of the South in 1861 without undermining your own freedom in the here and now.

The Confederate Soldier Was Not a Villain; Great Quotes on the Southern Confederacy

Lately I have noticed a false assumption among many conservatives and Republicans, that the Confederate soldier was a villain, and invoke his image in a negative way, in order to disparage the modern Democrat Party.  See this discussion, and comments, at Legal Insurrection, for example.

The irony in this is that the Confederate soldier fought for major principles that are the foundation of modern Conservative thought.  No, not slavery, no not racial animus, but the sovereignty of the American states and their opposition to a strong, tyrannical federal government -- the kind of federal government we have today.

By assuming that the North's aggression on the South was good, modern conservatives contradict the very principles they pretend to support.

Here are some great quotes from the web, some of which praise the Confederate soldier, and some of which show the villainy of the Northern war on the South.
