Stop the Gun Grabbers

…the Constitution’s framers gave us the Second Amendment to protect our rights to go deer and duck hunting, do a bit of skeet shooting, and protect ourselves against criminals. That this vision is so widely held reflects the failure of gun rights advocates, such as the NRA and Gun Owners of America, to educate the American people

The Essence of Liberty: Volume I: Liberty and History: The Rise and Fall of the Noble Experiment with Constitutionally Limited Government (Liberty and ... Limited Government) (Volume 1)The NRA may be the biggest gun control organization in the world. It has compromised away far more gun rights than it ever saved. — jtl, 419

The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2)The nation’s demagogues and constitutionally ignorant are using the Charleston, South Carolina, AME church shooting to attack the Second Amendment’s “right of the people to keep and bear Arms.” A couple of years ago, President Barack Obama said, “I have a profound respect for the The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)traditions of hunting that trace back in this country for generations.” That’s a vision shared by many Americans, namely that the Constitution’s framers gave us the Second Amendment to protect our rights to go deer and duck hunting, do a bit of skeet shooting, and protect ourselves against criminals. Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewThat this vision is so widely held reflects the failure of gun rights advocates, such as the NRA and Gun Owners of America, to educate the American people. The following are some statements by the Founding Fathers. You tell me which one of them suggests that they gave us the Second Amendment for deer and duck hunting and protection against criminals.

Combat Shooter's HandbookAlexander Hamilton said, “The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed,” adding later, “If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no recourse left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government.” What institution was Hamilton referring to when he said “the representatives of the people”?

Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps InstituteThomas Jefferson: “What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms.” Who are the rulers Jefferson had in mind?

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsJames Madison, the “Father of the Constitution,” said, “(The Constitution preserves) the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation … (where) the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.”

A Handbook for Ranch Managers Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference ManualGeorge Mason, author of the Virginia Bill of Rights, which served as inspiration for the U.S. Constitution’s Bill of Rights, said, “To disarm the people — that was the best and most effectual way to enslave them,” later saying, “I ask, sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people, except for a few public officials.”

Richard Henry Lee said, “To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them.”

Here’s a much more recent statement from a liberal, bearing no kinship to today’s liberals/progressives: The late Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey said, “Certainly, one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the right of the citizen to keep and bear arms. … The right of the citizen to bear arms is just one guarantee against arbitrary government, one more safeguard against the tyranny which now appears remote in America but which historically has proven to be always possible.”

There are some historical anti-gun statements that might please America’s gun grabbers. “Armas para que?” (Translated: “Guns, for what?”) That’s how Fidel Castro saw the right of citizens to possess guns. There’s a more famous anti-gun statement: “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing.” That was Adolf Hitler.

At the heart of the original American ideal is the deep distrust and suspicion the founders of our nation had for Congress, distrust and suspicion not shared as much by today’s Americans. Some of the founders’ distrust is seen in our Constitution’s language, such as Congress shall not abridge, infringe, deny, disparage, violate or deny. If the founders did not believe Congress would abuse our God-given rights, they would not have provided those protections.

Maybe there are Americans who would argue that we are moving toward greater liberty and less government control over our lives and no longer need to remain an armed citizenry. I’d like to see their evidence.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)The Essence of Liberty Volume III: Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic. This is the volume that pulls it all together. With reference to Hans-Hermann Hoppe’s description of Murray Rothbard’s work, it is a “unique contribution to the rediscovery of property and property rights as the common foundation of both economics and political philosophy, and the systematic reconstruction and conceptual integration of modern, marginalist economics and natural-law political philosophy into a unified moral science: libertarianism.” Available in both paperback and Kindle versions.

Are White Men Gods? (II): Getting the Facts Straight

What I think, Cornel, is that if you want the advantages of success, you have to succeed… People who count on their fingers should maintain a discreet silence.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume I: Liberty and History: The Rise and Fall of the Noble Experiment with Constitutionally Limited Government (Liberty and ... Limited Government) (Volume 1)   Old Fred has never been one to mince words and could care less what our enemies think of (or say about) him.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2)We are kindred spirits. I put it this way: Had it not been for the white male of Western European origin, the rest of the world would still be digging tubers out of the ground with a pointed stick. And they need to get over it. — jtl, 419

by Fred Reed of Fred on Everything

The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)I find Cornel West, a black professor, complaining of White Supremacy, which he believes our black President needs to remedy. Obama, he says, is “niggerized.”

“A niggerized black person is a black person who is afraid and scared and intimidated when it comes to putting a spotlight on white supremacy and fighting against white supremacy,” West said.

Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewI would like to explain to Professor West a few things about this dread supremacy:

We have White Supremacy, Professor, because for 2500 years we, whites, have produced the best minds on the planet, the greatest flourishing of the arts and sciences ever seen, the most complex and organized societies. We have White Supremacy, whatever exactly it may be, because we have been the earth’s most successful race. No other has come close. Deal with it.

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsWe put probes on Mars and invented the thousands of technologies needed to do it. We developed the symphony orchestra, the highest form of musical expression. We invented the airplane, the computer, the internet, and tennis shoes. Putting it compactly,  we invented the modern world. A degree of privilege, however you may conceive it, goes with the territory.Space Shuttle

A product of white engineers. When you can do this, come back and talk to me.

Blacks may not have the background to grasp the extent of our achievements. Still, permit me a brief and very incomplete list of things white people have done or invented:

Combat Shooter's HandbookEuclidean geometry. Parabolic geometry. Hyperbolic geometry. Projective geometry. Differential geometry. Calculus: Limits, continuity, differentiation, integration. Physical chemistry. Organic chemistry. Biochemistry. Classical mechanics. The indeterminacy principle. The wave equation. The Parthenon. The Anabasis. Air conditioning. Number theory. Romanesque architecture. Gothic architecture. Information Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps Institutetheory. Entropy. Enthalpy. Every symphony ever written. Pierre Auguste Renoir. The twelve-tone scale. The mathematics behind it, twelfth root of two and all that. S-p hybrid bonding orbitals. The Bohr-Sommerfeld atom. The purine-pyrimidine structure of the DNA ladder. Single-sideband radio. All other radio. Dentistry. The internal-combustion engine. Turbojets. Turbofans. Doppler beam-sharpening. Penicillin. A Handbook for Ranch Managers Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual Airplanes. Surgery. The mammogram. The Pill. The condom. Polio vaccine. The integrated circuit. The computer. Football. Computational fluid dynamics. Tensors. The Constitution. Euripides, Sophocles, Aristophanes, Aeschylus, Homer, Hesiod. Glass. Rubber. Nylon. Roads. Buildings. Elvis. Acetylcholinesterase inhibitors. (OK, that’s nerve gas, and maybe we didn’t really need it.) Silicone. The automobile. Really weird stuff, like clathrates, Buckyballs, and rotaxanes. The Bible. Bug spray. Diffie-Hellman, public-key cryptography, and RSA. Et cetera.

Computers
Computers, invented by us. We are not the only ones who can design these monsters. The Japanese, Chinese, Koreans, and Indians can do it, and they have my respect. But–Babbage, Turing, Shockley, Shannon, Boole, von Neumann–we invented computers. People who count on their fingers should maintain a discreet silence.

As a race, Cornel, we are happy  for you, for anyone, to enjoy the benefits of our civilization, but that is exactly what it is—our civilization. It has become a global civilization because others among the competent—again, Chinese, Japanese, Indians, Koreans—have found it to be in technical matters superior. It came from us. They, I note, do not complain of White Supremacy or White Privilege. They are too busy making computers and money.

Now,  Cornel, I have often heard blacks demanding reparations  for slavery. All right. I agree. It is only fair.  I will pay a half-million dollars to each of my slaves, and free them immediately.  I am not sure how many I have, but will try to give you an estimate in even dozens. Further, I believe that all blacks are entitled to a similar amount for every year in which they were slaves.

However,  I think you owe us royalties for the use of our civilization, which can be regarded as a sort of software. There should be a licensing fee. After all, every time you use a computer, or a door knob, you are using something invented by us. Every time you sharpen a pencil, or use one, or read or write, you infringe our copyright, so to speak. We have spent millennia coming up with things–literacy, soap, counting–and it is only fair that we receive recompense.

The accounting burden would be excessive if we tried to distribute royalties in too fine a granularity, such as three cents per use of a boom box or a Glock, so we should probably use a bundled approach–so much per year for use of the wheel, refrigerator, and television. The amount could be deducted first from reparations payments and then automatically from EFT cards.Gothic

A white man’s kraal. We started building them around 1137.

Now, Cornel, it isn’t that we whites want to be supreme. It is just that we haven’t been able to help it. It isn’t our fault that we produced Newton, Archimedes, Einstein, and all those mutants. They are just birth effects, things that happen to even the best families. You have to play the hand you are dealt. A little sympathy would be appropriate.

Hardly distinguishable from the Tang Dynasty
 These gentlemen, hardly distinguishable from the Julio-Claudians, are probably from Papua-New Guinea. I propose to give them a trial subscription to White Supremacist culture.
An essentially identical culture, differing only in unimportant details (Mission Control)
An essentially identical culture, differing only in detail. (Mission Control)

What I think, Cornel, is that if you want the advantages of success, you have to succeed. We have. It is chic to say  that whites are now headed for the dust bin of history. Maybe. If so, historians of the future will say, “Damn! That was some really fine dust, wasn’t it?”

Excerpts from “Put Out More Flags”

So long as you continue to worry about what your enemies think, you will continue to lose every battle.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume I: Liberty and History: The Rise and Fall of the Noble Experiment with Constitutionally Limited Government (Liberty and ... Limited Government) (Volume 1)As SFC Steven F Barry once said, “There are only two things that we absolutely must do in this country: 1) openly admit to ourselves that we live in a Communist country and 2) quit being polite to the enemy.” — jtl, 419

by Thomas Fleming at The Fleming Foundation Sent to me by Chuck Demastus of Southern Heritage News and Views

The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2)“The war against the South is part of the war against Christian civilization and against every normal and wholesome human attachment. These people want to obliterate all distinctions, not just between North and South or Liberal and Conservative, but between citizen and alien, male and female, straight and twisted.”

The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)“Southern people, you are at war, whether you want to acknowledge it or not, and in such a war you cannot afford to flinch in the face of the enemy. What do you care what your enemies think of you? So long as you have the slightest whiff of Christianity emanating from your churches, so long as anyone has Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian Viewa kind word to say about General Lee, they will continue their campaign of cultural genocide.”

“So long as you continue to worry about what your enemies think, you will continue to lose every battle. Every generation of Southern children over Combat Shooter's HandbookReconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps InstituteThe Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other Misfitsthe past hundred years is less likely to go to Church or speak their local dialect, more likely to tolerate (or practice) perversity and denounce the South. That is because each generation of parents is content to go along to get ahead, conforming to whatever edicts come out of Washington, letting their children’s minds be moulded by the dimwits who graduate from schools of education, watching Fox or CNN, listening to NPR or Sean Hannity.”

A Handbook for Ranch Managers Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual “It is time for Southerners to get off the defensive and positively assert the virtues of the South while condemning the vices of their enemies. The South was not perfect, because even to imagine there can be a perfect society is a leftist fantasy, but, compared with most societies of that time, the Kennedy brothers were certainly correct when they titled their book, The South Was Right.”

Response to: The ludicrous, self-defeating hypocrisy of flying the Confederate battle flag

The War for Southern Independence was about slavery, which is to say the Yankee victory assured our collective bondage on the Pinko – Potomac plantation.

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsIndeed it has rightfully been said that Dishonest Abe freed the slaves and enslaved the freemen. After all, what is the difference in a country where 50% of its population are slaves and a country where all of its population are 50% slaves. (Add up all of your taxes and you will have forked over at least that much over your lifetime to the “greater good.”)

Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps InstituteAnd oh, those are some numbers that put things in perspective. Hitler murdered 6 million Jews. Over the past 42 years, the government of the uSSA has sanctioned the murder of 60 million of the most innocent amongst us. Think about it and then let your next thought be secession. — jtl, 419

Here is the URL for the original essay, in case the link won’t work for you: http://americanvision.org/12130/the-ludicrous-self-defeating-hypocrisy-of-flying-the-confederate-battle-flag/

Dr. McDurmon,

I received a copy of your article, The ludicrous, self-defeating hypocrisy in flying the Confederate battle flag, and I couldn’t be more disappointed. Nothing is more demoralizing than for Pastors to perpetuate 150 years of Marxist propaganda.

Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewA Sheppard should clear the fog of ignorance and light the truth, not submit to conformity. You join the ranks of Pastors deceived to do the deeds of antichrist forces, using your Pastoral influence to cloak their end game. You divert the flock from the real threat to this country, which is not an Combat Shooter's Handbookantiquated system abolished in 1865. The War for Southern Independence was about slavery, which is to say the Yankee victory assured our collective bondage on the Pinko – Potomac plantation.

Y’all preach on personal sin, which is good because A Handbook for Ranch Managers Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual righteousness starts with the individual. But very few of you ever inspire Christians to stand in the gap against the Godless policies of the national government. Sanctioned atrocities under US colors, including known collaboration with New World Order unholy alliances, far outweigh any real or perceived “sins” under the flag of the Confederacy.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume I: Liberty and History: The Rise and Fall of the Noble Experiment with Constitutionally Limited Government (Liberty and ... Limited Government) (Volume 1) The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2) The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3) Normally I would  engage in a spirited historical or scriptural debate, but let’s instead apply your logic toward a few “modern” issues. I’ll preface with your comments.

In your article, you claim “you get it” but that we should “shuck the evil and hold on only to the good.” You incessantly mention “wickedness and Godless”, stating  “the unforgiveable sins that are permanently inseparable from the government and its flags” with respect to slavery and the Confederacy. What about today’s legalized immorality embraced by all three branches of government?

For the last 42 years, we have sanctioned the slaughter of nearly 60 million sinless children under the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision – arguably the most odious blight in human history. Let me put that figure into perspective. Hitler slaughtered six million Jews and will forever be remembered as a monster. We are 10 times worse than Hitler. So what does that make us Dr. McDurmon? Not only is abortion anathema to God’s law, it continues to be US law “inseparable” from US colors. Tax payers are forced to be an accessory to savagery that violates their conscience and faith. Abortion is part of the permanent platform of Democrats with insignificant opposition by Republicans. And we have the temerity to speak on human rights? Talk about “shucking evil.”

As predicted, the Supreme Court has ruled in favor of same-sex marriage. Again, they use the 14th Amendment, an illegal Reconstruction Amendment (you can research it) designed for Washington to override State laws. Again, this is another policy “inseparable” from US colors that violate God’s law. Again, the homosexual agenda is a permanent platform of Democrats with insignificant opposition by Republicans. This “again” stuff really mounts up.

Now, you want me to bring down my G-G-Grandfather’s flag because of the “evil” attached to it. I’m going to go out on a limb and say you’re anti-abortion and against same-sex marriage. Based on your logic and those two issues alone, you should be for lowering the “evil” US Flag. If not, then your argument is nothing short of moral relativism. Or to borrow your words, “ludicrous, self-defeating hypocrisy.”

In case you haven’t noticed, the Democrats and Republicans are the modern-day Pharisees and Sadducees. And you know how Jesus proved time and again how hypocritical and wrong they were. They are a nefarious “band of pirates” who exhibit Cicero’s “enemy from within.” As my good friend would say, they are two wings on the same bird of prey. They are loyal only to special interest and their New World Order masters, which is why there are more millionaires in Congress than at any time in our history.

News flash Pastor: This is about far more than just a flag, and has been for more than a century. Remember when Obama, whom I affectionately call the Muslim Mole, made his infamous statement about us “clinging to our bibles and guns?” It wasn’t a Freudian slip, it was a shot over the bow that he had us in his cross hairs. He knows we are the final hurdle in forcing a full-blown Marxist society.

All this anti-South / anti-Confederate vitriol is a ruse by sinister design. Marxists fear the South because we are a proven stronghold against tyranny, be it King George, King Lincoln, or King Obama. The visceral hatred toward the South is because of our proven visceral strength. And at the foundation of that strength is our Judeo-Christian values, which is why these rabid, Amalekite Marxists are teaming with every Goth they can muster to eradicate all vestiges of our faith, history and traditions utilizing every device possible.

We cling to a lot of old ways because they will always be needed. Every sector of the country has warts in their history. Our country’s history has experienced both joyful and sorrowful times. Like it or not, it’s the stuff we’re made of. Southerners ain’t perfect, but we’re not conformists either. We are commanded to love one another, but not tolerate “wickedness and Godlessness.” This has long presented a problem for the One World pinkos.

That’s why this is deeper than a flag. The hyper-drive “fundamental transformation” forced by this antichrist administration proves this. Soon, we’ll be relegated to outlaw status. In many ways, we already are.  Jesus said, “Because I have been persecuted, so will you.” The persecution, under US colors, grows.

Our country is morally and financially bankrupt Dr. McDurmon. The One World Order wants control and all three branches of government are their unified puppets. With all the pinko-poisoned policies being forced upon us, your energy would be better served as a watchman to sound the clarion call on their encroachment.

Your congregation needs to endorse Discipleship not Democrats – Righteousness not Republicans. Don’t let your congregation leave your church without knowing who the real enemy is. Don’t succumb to the liberal lure of digging up bones to throw you off the trail. Don’t allow the Confederate “diversion” to take your eye off the real One World Order objective. Because when it all goes sideways preacher, you may find your only friend in this world is a Confederate and his flag.

God Bless with Confederate Regards,

Jimmy Ward, GySgt / USMC (ret.)

7 Things You Didn’t Know About the Civil War: “There were over 3,000 BLACK slave owners who lived in the south”

With all of the controversy surrounding the Confederate Flag, and with Apple Inc. now removing all civil war related games from their app offerings, we have reached a point where propaganda has begun to outweigh the real truth.

Combat Shooter's HandbookActually, I am loving this. It has given me, and guys like me who are interested in correcting the propaganda  camp version of this, the most lied about, part of American history, a wonderful opportunity to “educate.” I’d bet a 6 pack that none of you were told this at the mandatory government propaganda camp (aka public school) at which you received a great part of your lifetime of indoctrination in cultural Marxism. — jtl, 419

lincolnmemorial

Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps InstituteThe following seven points from Daniel Ameduri of Future Money Trends is an effort to clear up some of the erroneous information being disseminated by agenda-driven politicos and activists:

1. The SLAVE states of Maryland, Missouri, Delaware, Kentucky, as well as the District of Columbia, were SLAVE STATES in the Union that fought for the NORTH.

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other Misfits2. Two years after the Emancipation Proclamation was made in 1863, the Union states of Delaware and Kentucky continued to have slavery until the Thirteenth Amendment was passed that abolished slavery.

The Emancipation Proclamation only freed Confederate slaves. It was Lincoln’s punishment for them, but it didn’t affect the slaves that remained in union control, including New Orleans, Tennessee, or Norfolk, Virginia, which were under the control of Union armies.

Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian View3. A year into the war, President Lincoln wrote a letter to the New York Tribune stating, “If I could save the Union without freeing any slave, I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves, I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone, I would also do that.” Not exactly a civil rights leader…

The Essence of Liberty: Volume I: Liberty and History: The Rise and Fall of the Noble Experiment with Constitutionally Limited Government (Liberty and ... Limited Government) (Volume 1) The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2) The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)Lincoln opposed inter-racial marriages, supported the Illinois Constitution’s prohibition of immigration of blacks into the state, defended a slave owner who was seeking to retrieve his runaway slaves but never defended slaves or runaways themselves, and he was a lifelong advocate of colonization — of sending every last black person in the U.S. to Africa, Haiti, or central America — anywhere but in the United States.

A Handbook for Ranch Managers Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual 4. Most white southern families had no slaves, which means most white soldiers in the south had no slaves.

And they definitely didn’t have slaves like some of the NORTHERN army soldiers who were from the states of Delaware, Maryland, Missouri, and Kentucky.

According to the census of the entire United States, with 27 million people, about 1.4% were slave owners, or 4.8% of southern whites owned slaves.

http://americancivilwar.com/authors/black_slaveowners.htm

5. Here is something you won’t learn about in Black History Month:

There were over 3,000 BLACK slave owners who lived in the south.

According to the U.S. census, in South Carolina in 1830, about a fourth of the negro slave masters owned 10 or more slaves.

6. The north had laws preventing “free” black people from actually getting rights as citizens.

Two acts of Congress were passed during the Civil War, one in 1864 and one in 1866, which allowed slave owners whose slaves enlisted or were drafted into the Union military to file a claim against the federal government for loss of the slave’s services.

7. Abraham Lincoln was a tyrant and acted as America’s first dictator…

He arrested Maryland legislators to prevent them from voting on secession. He shut down at least 300 northern newspapers opposing his war policies. He imprisoned 10,000 Union citizens without due process of law. And he even provoked the south into war, even after North Carolina, Tennessee, Arkansas, and Virginia voted to stay in the Union.

The Real Reason for the Anti-Confederate Flag Hysteria

Another defining characteristic of the cultural Marxist Left is its hatred of free speech – by those who disagree with it.  Free speech should only be enjoyed by the victims of white (heterosexual male) oppression, they say.  Allowing white male oppressors to have free speech simply leads to even more “oppression” of the oppressed (which now includes everyone who is not a white heterosexual male).  This is why so many university administrators proudly crack down on academic freedom with campus speech codes, tolerance of riotous disruptions of conservative or libertarian campus lecturers, and even the libeling and slandering of such speakers when they are allowed to speak.  It makes them popular among the cultural Marxist faculty in the humanities and social sciences, and therefore makes their jobs and lives more pleasant.  It also helps to cement into place the cultural Marxist mantra that “white privilege” is the one and only source of all the world’s problems.

Did you ever notice how the white, heterosexual, SOUTHERN male is one of the very few groups of people that it is OK to make insulting jokes about?

Why should we want to hang around and take the abuse. We are never going to change their minds. Separation is the only answer.  Think secession. — jtl, 419

By Thomas DiLorenzo via LewRockwell.com

June 27, 2015

Every couple of years the totalitarian socialist Left in America (a.k.a., the Democratic Party and all of its appendages) pretends to be indignant about the existence of the Confederate flag somewhere.  The lapdog cultural Marxist media fall in line, treating the siting of the flag in the same way they would treat the siting of an Ebola victim in a large crowd.  Americans are reminded once again by the New York/New England/Ivy League-educated presstitute class that they should hate Southerners and all things Southern.  As Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart recently whined in faux horror, Southerners “waged war against the United States” government!  Waaaaaaaaah!

The anti-Confederate flag hysteria is only one small part of the Left’s general strategy, however.  It is part of their overriding strategy of diverting the public’s attention away from all the grotesque failures of leftist interventionism, form the welfare state to the government takeover of education to the war on drugs and beyond.  The neocons who run the Republican Party are usually complicit in all of this.

The welfare state has decimated the black family and is hard at work destroying the white family as well by eliminating the stigma against a man’s abandoning his wife and children with welfare checks (See Charles Murray, Losing Ground).  What does the Confederate flag have to do with this?  The welfare state has destroyed the work ethic of millions of Americans. What does the Confederate flag have to do with this?  The Fed caused the biggest depression since the Great Depression with its latest boom-and-bust-cycle act.  What does the Confederate flag have to do with this?

The rotten inner city government schools have enriched uneducated “teachers” and school bureaucrats but have ruined the lives of untold numbers of black children with fraudulent “education.” What does the Confederate flag have to do with this?

The war on drugs has had a horrific racial effect in that it has caused the incarceration of hundreds of thousands of mostly young black men from the inner cities while creating the reasons for drug-gang violence and all the death that is associated with it. What does the Confederate flag have to do with this?

The minimum wage law has always had a disproportionately harmful effect on black teenage unemployment.  What has the Confederate flag have to do with this?  High taxes, onerous regulations, and uncontrollable government spending by all levels of government have sucked resources out of the job-creating private sector only to fatten the government bureaucracy, depriving all Americans of job opportunities.  What has the Confederate flag have to do with ANY of this?  ALL of this was done under the auspices of the U.S. flag.

The ideological lynchpin of the cultural Marxists who dominate so much of American politics, the media and the universities is the argument that there is one and only one reason why there still exists a “black underclass” (mostly) in American cities, namely, “white privilege” and “the legacy of slavery.”  To cultural Marxists, nothing else matters, or should even be allowed to be discussed.  The welfare/warfare state, the war on drugs, the public schools, etc. cannot possibly have had anything but good effects, they say, because they were all undertaken with the best of intentions.  It’s all the fault of “white privilege,” say privileged white politicians, privileged white university administrators, and privileged white media talking heads.

The Confederate flag, they claim, is the banner of white privilege, the sole cause of all the problems of the “underclass”; hence, all the extreme torches-and-pitchforks-type behavior over the flag in recent days.  The cultural Marxist Left views it all as an assault on “white privilege,” the source of all evil in the world.

Another defining characteristic of the cultural Marxist Left is its hatred of free speech – by those who disagree with it.  Free speech should only be enjoyed by the victims of white (heterosexual male) oppression, they say.  Allowing white male oppressors to have free speech simply leads to even more “oppression” of the oppressed (which now includes everyone who is not a white heterosexual male).  This is why so many university administrators proudly crack down on academic freedom with campus speech codes, tolerance of riotous disruptions of conservative or libertarian campus lecturers, and even the libeling and slandering of such speakers when they are allowed to speak.  It makes them popular among the cultural Marxist faculty in the humanities and social sciences, and therefore makes their jobs and lives more pleasant.  It also helps to cement into place the cultural Marxist mantra that “white privilege” is the one and only source of all the world’s problems.

I offer as a personal example of this phenomenon the malicious libeling of Professor Walter Block several years ago by one Brian Linnane, the president of Loyola University Maryland, an ugly event that many readers of LewRockwell.com will recall.  At my invitation, Professor Block presented a lecture to the undergraduate Adam Smith Club on the evening of their annual dinner.  His topic was the economics of discrimination, a very mainstream topic that is addressed in all principles of economics textbooks (I recommend Walter Williams’ new book on the subject, Race and Economics: How Much Does Discrimination Explain?).  Professor Block is known as an iconoclast, but in this instance he presented a very mainstream talk consistent with the ideas of his old graduate school dissertation chairman, the late Gary Becker, author of The Economics of Discrimination, which I believe was Becker’s own dissertation at the University of Chicago way back when.

Professor Block did his usual fabulous job of explaining how racial or sexual discrimination in the workplace is penalized in a free, competitive market by creating profit opportunities for competitors.  For example, if an employer pays a white male employee $50,000/year, and an equally-qualified black or female employee $25,000 for the same job for which each employee is capable of producing say, $60,000 in revenue for the employer, the black or female employee is bound to be scooped up by a competitor.  The competing business person can offer them say, $35,000 and make $25,000 on the deal ($60,000 in revenue minus $35,000 in salary).  Then another competitor may offer $40,000, or $50,000, etc., depending on the intensity of competition.  If there is enough competition, the “pay gap” will disappear altogether.  This is how free-market competition penalizes racial or sexual discrimination in the workplace and causes it to diminish or disappear.  The lecture was met with applause by the students.

But the whole thing was a set-up by the campus cultural Marxists, led by the university president, Brian Linnane.  They sent a single black student to the lecture who supposedly complained (not to me, the sponsor of the lecture, but to the gang of cultural Marxist faculty and administrators on campus known to some students as the “social justice crowd”)  that Professor Block’s remarks were “insensitive.” That was seven years ago.  To this day, no one associated with the Loyola University Maryland administration has ever revealed just what Professor Block said that was “insensitive,” or why their students should be treated like imbecilic little infants whose ears must be protected from ”insensitive” speech such as Gary Becker/University of Chicago-style economics.  They even refused to answer the question when a Baltimore Sun reporter asked them about it.

The libeling occurred when Brian Linnane sent an email to all of the university’s students, faculty, and alumni apologizing for the “insensitivity” of Professor Block’s speech, which he did not personally hear, along with a sanctimonious proclamation of how devoted he was to the cause of anti-discrimination.  He clearly wanted his readers to think, incorrectly, that Professor Block must have uttered some kind of racist epithet.

The real reason for the malicious libeling of Walter Block by the Loyola University administration was revealed (to me, at least) by a statement that one of the undergraduate students in the room made at the end of Professor Block’s lecture.  “But we want to talk about the legacy of slavery,” he sheepishly complained, in good politically-correct fashion.  Outside of the economics students in the room, who knew better, the other students like this one were thoroughly brainwashed in the cultural Marxist “white privilege” mantra along with the notion that all other discussions of the possible causes of black/white wage differences, unemployment, or anything else, should be censored by any means possible.  They are incapable of even engaging in a question-and-answer session with someone like Professor Block, since that would require the use of logical thought.   All they had been taught, for the most part, was how to mouth left-wing political platitudes and slogans.

Thus, the purpose of Brian Linnane’s malicious libeling of Walter Block was  to send the rest of the campus the message that such non-cultural Marxist talk would no longer be tolerated on “his” campus, and that anyone who attempted it would be smeared as a racist – or worse.  Something like this scenario has been played out at numerous other American universities.  It is all part and parcel, along with the Confederate flag hysteria, of the cultural Marxist crusade against “white privilege” in their campaign of denial of the grotesque failures of “liberalism.”

Racist Thug Guns Down Three in Atlanta

Racist Thug Guns Down Three in Atlanta by DailyKenn.com

Commentary by Craig Maus, President, The Confederate Society of America

  The Double-Standard is as appalling as it is Obvious.

As such, the Hypocrisy that is akin to it allows for the Enemy from Within to advance their odious Ideology under the guise of UnFairness, allowing for more Socialized mechanisms to be IMPLANTED.

Using Humanitarianism as a ‘cause celeb’ is the oldest Marxist trick in the book.

And America has Swallowed this sanctimonious puke lock, stock & proverbial barrel thanks to the government’s National Education Department (created in the 1970’s) that BELCHES this crap while using our Tax Money to advance its Diatribe!

State ‘public schools’ NO longer TEACH- they merely echo that which they are told to ‘Teach’ less their Central-National government subsidies are withheld.

Thus a Foreign Ideology spreads like a shroud encompassing one and all divorcing them from ALL REALITY & historical truth.

This country NO more looks like the Republic of old than does a skunk look like a snake.

Thus BULL-SHIT trumps REALITY and the People become ‘fodder for the political cannons’  that supposedly NEVER existed.

By the Eternal, but WE MUST SEPARATE!

For God, family and the Restoration of The Republic of the Original Confederation,

Historical ‘Soul’ Searching

NO Confederate Flag existed nor did ANY SOUTHERN SHIP EVER NEGOTIATE WITH THE AFRICAN CHIEFTAINS to PURCHASE THE SLAVES THEY CAPTURED RESULTING FROM WARS WITH OTHER TRIBES… Did you think those African Chieftains would hold onto the blacks of other tribes captured in Battle as POW’s and feed and house them? … Hell, if they couldn’t be sold, they were sacrificed to their Gods.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume I: Liberty and History: The Rise and Fall of the Noble Experiment with Constitutionally Limited Government (Liberty and ... Limited Government) (Volume 1)There is a reason they called it the “slave trade.” Every trade involves at least two parties–a buyer and a seller. So, why is there never any mention of the “black” side of that trade? I know…silly question. — jtl, 419

From Craig Maus at The Confederate Society of America

The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2)Let’s do some Historical ‘Soul’ searching shall we whereby the dumbed down & Liberal ‘Humanists’ might LEARN something….although I doubt it.

First off , the Young United States was engaged, like MOST countries of the world during the 17th, 18th & 19th centuries, in the Institution of Slavery.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)That is NOT to suggest that it was right but merely to identify what was considered part of a ‘global’ economic practice.

Having said that, let us move the ‘clock’ forward to the 19th century and for those Liberal Elitists that is the 1800’s.

Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewSo here we are in Charleston Harbor during the 1800’s and anchored in the harbor are those ships that were known as SLAVERS- unloading their human cargo to be sold at the Charleston Block for as much as $1,000.00 per person and even higher.

Now that was ONE HELLUVA LOT OF MONEY BACK THEN and when you multiply that by the hundreds of thousands over the centuries, as noted, IT ADDS UP TO A PRTTEY NICE SUM OF MONEY- wouldn’t you say?

Now when YOU buy something, SOMEONE is making a profit.

Now let us go back to those SHIPS anchored in the harbor.

Were they FLYING a Confederate Battle Flag- NO- because the Confederate Battle Flag was YET TO EXIST! Is YOUR ‘Dumb’ button beginning to ‘Connect some early Dots’?

Then whose FLAG were they FLYING-? The Stars & Stripes that’s who!

Are YOU surprised?

ALL SLAVERS (Ships) came out of New York, Boston and Philadelphia harbors- check the Maritime Records if in Y’all don’t believe us.

And guess where that MONEY ($$$$$$$$$$$) was going ALL THOSE YEARS?

Yup- TO THE Northern Industrialists. Again, check the Maritime Records to SEE WHO OWNED THOSE SHIPS- THE NAMES MIGHT SURPRISE YOU!

By THE 1860’S, Slavery was nearing its end. Feeding, housing and taking care of People is NOT cheap and Industry was replacing the need for human labor.

Oh, and by the Way- Free Black Men in the South NOT ONLY EXISTED but owned Plantations themselves and engaged in the institution of Slavery as well- were y’all ever TAUGHT that?

As such, the Industrialists in the North were NO longer realizing the PROFITS TO WHICH THEY HAD BECOME ACCUSTOMED and thus their riches were being impacted.

So what happened next has been equally OMITTED from the History Books.

They and their Banking Friends worked closely with LINCOLN’S boys in passing many EXTREME TARIFF BILLS.

They had to make up for their LOSSES somehow, didn’t they?
After all, they could get ANY Bill through Congress as there were MORE NORTHERN STATES THAN THERE WERE SOUTHERN and guess what- just like King George who set off the REVOLUTION with his Stamp Act demanding 75% from ALL goods produced by the Colonies, Abe & Company did the same eclipsing the situation with their Morrell Tariff that likewise demanded 75% of ALL GOODS produced in the South.

That is when the South said: We’re outa here because this is NOT the ‘contract’ we agreed to when we signed onto this ‘junket’.
Now the rest, as they say, is History- RESULTING IN A Civil War but- as mentioned above, Our Confederate Flag did NOT Exist!
It came about ONLY AFTER Lincoln decided to INVADE US WITHOUT ANY AUTHORIZATION TO DO SO FROM CONGRESS- DID Y’ALL KNOW THAT?

So the Confederate Flag NEVER represented what they claiming now but… those claims are coming from the Political Goons and Ignoramuses that are running & ruling this Country who are collectively STEALING YOUR MONEY!

And did YOU KNOW what OUR Confederate Flag represented?
Did you know it was a CHRISTIAN FLAG representing the Cross of St. Andrew?

Did you know who St. Andrew was?

He was the patron Saint of Scotland who was impaled by the Romans on one of their cartwheels in a X fashion.

Did you know ANY of this?

It was designed (THE flag) so AS to represent God’s Republic representing the Original Confederation whose Stars were that of Jesus and His 12 disciples.

So the Flag Y’all are taking down, demonizing, eradicating, etc. is that of your Faith representing the last vestiges of the Original Republic whose CONFEDERATION was that of THE FORMER

Independent Sovereign States.

Are Y’all happy NOW- You have CUT YOUR OWN THROATS because others simply told YOU TOO by mere accusation and FINGER POINTING & without any MERIT WHATSOEVER.

And remember those SHIPS anchored in Charleston Harbor over many, many years and the FLAG THEY FLEW- the STARS & STRIPES as NO Confederate Flag existed nor did ANY SOUTHERN SHIP EVER NEGOTIATE WITH THE AFRICAN CHIEFTAINS to PURCHASE THE SLAVES THEY CAPTURED RESULTING FROM WARS WITH OTHER TRIBES.

HAVE YOU BEEN TAUGHT ANY OF THIS??????????????????????????

Did you think those African Chieftains would hold onto the blacks of other tribes captured in Battle as POW’s and feed and house them?
Hell, if they couldn’t be sold, they were sacrificed to their Gods.

Did YOU know any of this or are YOU one of those knee-jerk types who simply listened to another who made up YOUR MIND FOR YOU WITHOUT EVER CHECKING ANYTHING FOR YOURSELF?

We MUST SEPARATE AS SEPARATION IS SURVIVAL!

Environmental and Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian View

edited by

Dr Jimmy T (Gunny) LaBaume

Is now available in both PAPERBACK and Kindle

BookCoverImageMurray N. Rothbard was the father of what some call Radical Libertarianism or Anarcho-Capitalism which Hans-Hermann Hoppe described as “Rothbard’s unique contribution to the rediscovery of property and property rights as the common foundation of both economics and political philosophy, and the systematic reconstruction and conceptual integration of modern, marginalist economics and natural-law political philosophy into a unified moral science: libertarianism.”

This book applies the principles of this “unified moral science” to environmental and natural resource management issues.

The book started out life as an assigned reading list for a university level course entitled Environmental and Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian View.

As I began to prepare to teach the course, I quickly saw that there was a plethora of textbooks suitable for universal level courses dealing with environmental and natural resource economics. The only problem was that they were all based in mainstream neo-classical (or Keynesian) theory. I could find no single collection of material comprising a comprehensive treatment of environmental and natural resource economics based on Austrian Economic Theory.

However, I was able to find a large number of essays, monographs, papers delivered at professional meetings and published from a multitude of sources. This book is the result. It is composed of a collection of research reports and essays by reputable scientists, economists, and legal experts as well as private property and free market activists.

The book is organized into seven parts: I. Environmentalism: The New State Religion; II. The New State Religion Debunked; III. Introduction to Environmental and Natural Resource Economics; IV. Interventionism: Law and Regulation; V. Pollution and Recycling; VI. Property Rights: Planning, Zoning and Eminent Domain; and VII. Free Market Conservation. It also includes an elaborate Bibliography, References and Recommended Reading section including an extensive Annotated Bibliography of related and works on the subject.

The intellectual level of the individual works ranges from quite scholarly to informed editorial opinion.

Yankee supremacists trash South’s heroes

Most Southerners, however, were not slaveholders. All Southerners were sovereigntists, fighting a “War for Southern Independence.” They rejected central coercion. Southerners believed a union that was entered voluntarily could be exited in the same way. As even establishment historian Paul Johnson concedes, “The South was protesting not only against the North’s interference in its ‘peculiar institution’ but against the growth of government generally.”

The Essence of Liberty: Volume I: Liberty and History: The Rise and Fall of the Noble Experiment with Constitutionally Limited Government (Liberty and ... Limited Government) (Volume 1)   And we still reject central coercion. We still believe in voluntary association with freedom to disassociate. We are still against the growth of government generally. Come to think of it, that is probably their problem with us. 

There is a back story. The Scot-Irish were Scotsmen who came to America on an Irish passport. They were “allowed” to settle the Appalachian mountain chain because that was the “frontier” at the time and the chicken-shit British settlers on the eastern seaboard knew they, being fearless fighters, would protect them from the Indians. 

Out of that came Country Music, NASCAR, moonshine and Daisy Duke.

These were also the people who made up the back bone of the Confederate Army. They were not slave holders simply because they were too poor to own slaves. They fought viciously because they were fighting in defense of their homeland.

Your UN-reconstructed friend– jtl, 419

by Ilana Mercer via World Net Daily

The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2)Fox News anchor Sean Hannity promised to provide a much-needed history of the much-maligned Confederate flag. For a moment, it seemed as though he and his guest, Mark Steyn, would deliver on the promise and lift the veil of ignorance. But no: The two showmen conducted a tactical tit-for-tat. They pinned the battle flag of the Army of Northern Virginia on the Southern Democrats (aka Dixiecrats). “I’m too sexy for my sheet,” sneered Steyn.

It fell to the woman who used to come across as the consummate Yankee supremacist to edify. The new Ann Coulter is indeed lovely:

Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewAlso on Fox, Ms. Coulter remarked that she was “appalled by” South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley’s call “for the removal of the Confederate battle flag from the state Capitol.” As “a student of American history,” Coulter offered that “the Confederate flag we’re [fussing] about never flew over an official Confederate building. It was a battle flag. It is to honor Robert E. Lee. And anyone who knows the first thing about military history knows that there is no greater army that ever took to the battle field than the Confederate Army.”

The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)And anyone who knows the first thing about human valor knows that there was no man more valorous and courageous than Robert E. Lee, whose “two uncles signed the Declaration of Independence and [whose] father was a notable cavalry officer in the War for Independence.”

Combat Shooter's HandbookThe battle flag of the Army of Northern Virginia – known as “Lee’s Army” – is not to be conflated with the “Stars and Bars,” which “became the official national flag of the Confederacy.” According to Sons of the South, the “first official use of the ‘Stars and Bars’ was at the inauguration of Jefferson Davis on March 4, 1861.” But because it resembled the “Stars and Stripes” flown by the Union, the “Stars and Bars” proved a liability during the Battle of Bull Run.

The confusion caused by the similarity in the flags was of great concern to Confederate Gen. P.G.T. Beauregard. He suggested that the Confederate national flag be changed to something completely different, to avoid confusion in battle in the future. This idea was rejected by the Confederate government. Beauregard then suggested that there should be two flags. One, the national flag, and the second one a battle flag, with the battle flag being completely different from the United States flag.

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsOriginally, the flag whose history is being trampled today was a red square, not a rectangle. Atop it was the blue Southern Cross. In the cross were – still are – the 13 stars representing the 13 states in the Confederacy.

Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps InstituteWars are generally a rich man’s affair and a poor man’s fight. Yankees are fond of citing Confederate officials in support of slavery and a war for slavery. Most Southerners, however, were not slaveholders. All Southerners were sovereigntists, fighting a “War for Southern Independence.” They rejected A Handbook for Ranch Managers Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manualcentral coercion. Southerners believed a union that was entered voluntarily could be exited in the same way. As even establishment historian Paul Johnson concedes, “The South was protesting not only against the North’s interference in its ‘peculiar institution’ but against the growth of government generally.”

Lincoln grew government, markedly, in size and in predatory boldness.

“Slavery as an institution is a moral and political evil,” wrote the South’s greatest hero, Gen. Lee. He did not go to war for that repugnant institution. To this American hero, local was truly beautiful. “In 1861 he was offered command of all the armies of the United States, the height of a soldier’s ambition,” chronicles Clyde Wilson, distinguished professor emeritus of history at the University of South Carolina. “But the path of honor commanded him to choose to defend his own people from invasion rather than do the bidding of the politicians who controlled the federal machinery in Washington.”

To his sister, Lee wrote: “With all my devotion to the Union, and the feeling of loyalty and duty of an American citizen, I have not been able to make up my mind to raise my hand against my relatives, my children, my home.” Lee, you see, was first and foremost a Virginian, the state that gave America its greatest presidents and the Constitution itself.

Was “Honest Abe” worthy of the moniker? In “Lincoln Unmasked,” Thomas J. DiLorenzo takes on historical assumptions about 16th president

Lord Acton, the British historian of liberty, wrote to Lee in praise. The general, surmised Lord Acton, was fighting to preserve “the only availing check upon the absolutism of the sovereign will”: states’ rights and secession.

Lee’s inspired reply to Lord Acton:

“… I believe that the maintenance of the rights and authority reserved to the states and to the people … are the safeguard to the continuance of a free government … whereas the consolidation of the states into one vast republic, sure to be aggressive abroad and despotic at home, will be the certain precursor of that ruin which has overwhelmed all those that have preceded it.”

Another extraordinary Southerner was James Johnston Pettigrew. He gave his life for Southern independence, not for slavery. Quoting Pettigrew, professor Wilson likens the forbearance of his own Confederate forebears to “the small Greek city-states who stood against the mighty Persian Empire in the fifth century B.C.”

Not quite Leonidas’ 300 Spartans at Thermopylae, but close.

“The U.S. government had quadruple the South’s resources.” Yet “it took 22 million Northerners four years of the bloodiest warfare in American history to conquer 5 million Southerners,” who “mobilized 90 percent of their men and lost nearly a fourth.”

When they hoist the battle flag of the Army of Northern Virginia, it is these soldiers Southerners honor.

Unable to defeat the South, the U.S. government resorted to terrorism—to an unprecedented war against Southern women and children.

With their battle flag, Southerners commemorate these innocents.

Love and Hate in Dixie

Even as ISIS is desecrating tombs in Palmyra, Syria, the cultural purge of the South has begun.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume I: Liberty and History: The Rise and Fall of the Noble Experiment with Constitutionally Limited Government (Liberty and ... Limited Government) (Volume 1)It is what my old mama used to refer to as “two faced” except worse as it is based on totally fabricated lies. — jtl, 419

By Patrick J. Buchanan via the Patrick J. Buchanan Web Site

The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2)“I will never be able to hold her again, but I forgive you.”

So said Nadine Collier, who lost her mother in the massacre at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina, offering forgiveness to Dylann Roof, who confessed to the atrocity that took the lives of nine churchgoers at that Wednesday night prayer service and Bible study.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3) If there is a better recent example of what it means to be a Christian, I am unaware of it. Collier and the families of those slain showed a faithfulness to Christ’s gospel of love and forgiveness that many are taught but few are strong enough to follow, especially at times like this.

Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewTheir Christian witness testifies to a forgotten truth: If slavery was the worst thing that happened to black folks brought from Africa to America, Christianity was the best.

Charleston, too, gave us an example of how a city should behave when faced with horror.

Combat Shooter's HandbookContrast the conduct of those good Southern people who stood outside that church in solidarity with the aggrieved, with the Ferguson mobs that looted and burned and the New York mobs that chanted for the killing of cops when the Eric Garner grand jury declined to indict.

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsYet, predictably, the cultural Marxists, following Rahm Emanuel’s dictum that you never let a crisis go to waste, descended like locusts.

Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps InstituteAs Roof had filmed himself flaunting a Confederate battle flag, the cry went out to tear that flag down from the war memorial in Columbia, South Carolina, and remove its vile presence everywhere in America.

A Handbook for Ranch Managers Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual Sally Jenkins of The Washington Post appeared front and center on its op-ed page with this call to healing: “The Confederate battle flag is an American swastika, the relic of traitors and totalitarians, symbol of a brutal regime, not a republic. The Confederacy was treason in defense of a still deeper crime against humanity: slavery.”

But if Jenkins’ hate-filled screed is right, if the Confederacy was Nazi Germany on American soil, then not only the battle flag must go.

The Confederate War Memorial on the capitol grounds honors the scores of thousands of South Carolinians who died in the lost cause. And if that was a cause of traitors and totalitarians and about nothing but slavery, ought not that memorial be dynamited?

Even as ISIS is desecrating tombs in Palmyra, Syria, the cultural purge of the South has begun.

Rep. Steve Cohen wants the name of legendary cavalryman Nathan Bedford Forrest removed from Forrest Park in Memphis and his bust gone from the capitol; Sen. Mitch McConnell wants the statue of Confederate President Jefferson Davis removed from the Kentucky capitol.

Governors are rushing to remove replicas of the battle flag from license plates, with Virginia’s Terry McAuliffe the most vocal. Will McAuliffe also demand that the statues of Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson be removed from Monument Avenue in Richmond?

“Take Down a Symbol of Hatred,” rails The New York Times.

But the battle flag is not so much a symbol of hatred as it is an object of hatred, a target of hatred. It evokes a hatred of the visceral sort that we see manifest in Jenkins’ equating of the South of Washington, Jefferson, John Calhoun, Andrew Jackson and Lee with Hitler’s Third Reich.

What the flag symbolizes for the millions who revere, cherish or love it, however, is the heroism of those who fought and died under it. That flag flew over battlefields, not over slave quarters.

Hence, who are the real haters here?

Can the Times really believe that all those coffee cups and baseball caps and T-shirts and sweaters and flag decals on car and truck bumpers are declarations that the owners hate black people? Does the Times believe Southern folks fly the battle flag in their yards because they want slavery back?

The Times’ editorialists cannot be such fools.

Vilification of that battle flag and the Confederacy is part of the cultural revolution in America that flowered half a century ago. Among its goals was the demoralization of the American people by demonizing their past and poisoning their belief in their own history.

The world is turned upside down. The new dogma of the cultural Marxists: Columbus was a genocidal racist. Three of our Founding Fathers — Washington, Jefferson, Madison — were slaveowners. Andrew Jackson was an ethnic cleanser of Indians. The great Confederate generals —- Lee, Jackson, Forrest — fought to preserve an evil institution. You have nothing to be proud of and much to be ashamed of if your ancestors fought for the South. And, oh yes, your battle flag is the moral equivalent of a Nazi swastika.

If we are to preserve our republic, future generations are going to need what that battle flag truly stands for: pride in our history and defiance in the face of the arrogance of power.
