I have a flag holder attached to the front of my house. However, it has been a long time since it has held any flag. I have resolved to purchase various Confederate flags -- the First National, the Second and Third Nationals, the battleflag, the Bonnie Blue Flag, and fly one of them on national holidays.
I will start off with the First National flag. However, I have to purchase one first. Searavenpress.com sells Confederate flags for $15 each with free shipping. I will order all of the flags today.
The despicable Southern Poverty Law Center is now targeting Confederate monuments, flags and symbols. They are a far-left, money-making scheme that seeks to marginalize all Conservative groups and personalities. They have no credibility.
I haven't posted here for seven months. I didn't stop writing, I just transferred much of my heritage defense to my other, better-read blog, Saberpoint. Now I am back to this one for dealing with Confederate heritage and history.
It is not easy to defend the Confederacy nowadays, as the anti-South hatred has been stoked to a degree greater than anytime since reconstruction. It's as if a form of madness has spread across the nation like a plague. The mere display of a Confederate flag results in sharp cries of outrage and anguish, with much posing and posturing by those who would defend us from it.
Most Americans don't remotely know or understand what happened in America between 1860 and 1877, the time period that includes Lincoln's war and the reconstruction that came afterwards. However, the Northern version of the history of that time period is largely a lie, a self-serving, massive distortion of what actually happened and why.
I have discovered a Southern writer who explains what happened and why, one Lochlainn Seabrook of Sea Raven Press. I just finished his book Abraham Lincoln: the Southern View. Next on my reading list is Everything You Were Taught About American Slavery is Wrong, Ask a Southerner. Both of these books are weighty tomes, 654 pages for the former, 1020 pages for the latter.
The book on Lincoln inflamed my feelings against the North, Lincoln and Yankeedom. If I suddenly attained supernatural powers, I would restore the Confederate States of America immediately, then resurrect and hang Lincoln, Sherman, Grant and Sheridan for crimes against humanity. Since I can't do that, I can continue to learn, and to propagate the truth, in the hopes that future generations may go looking for it and someday find it.
You should do the same. Check out Sea Raven Press at their website, here.
This blog is about the Confederate States of America, Confederate descendants, American history and American politics. Everyone who cares about these subjects is welcome here.
We love the Southern Confederacy because it was the nation of our ancestors and is our nation by inheritance. We love the South and the Confederacy for reasons of patriotism, self-identity, reverence for ancestors, and family ties. Likewise, we love the Confederate flag and the song "Dixie" and other icons of Southern heritage for the valor, bravery and family ties that they represent. We do not cherish these icons for any but honorable reasons. We will vigorously defend Southern heritage and history from those who denigrate it.
However, our goal extends beyond defense of past history -- we will also work hard for a new birth of American liberty and prosperity, even if that can only be achieved by a new secession of the states.
Please do not assume that because we link particular organizations, we agree with every one of their positions and comments.
Within these links, do not feel that you must agree with every position that a Southern heritage or political web site holds. Find what you like and can support, and align yourself with those groups that share your values.
