Why are Southern Americans still fighting the Civil War?
Why do we still dwell in a place 150 years ago, yet still have the ambivalence to exist in modern times? Why can’t we just let it go? Are we still mad that we lost? Do we still dislike people in the North? All are valid questions; the answers are deep-rooted within us and not what you’d expect.
You see, it’s not that we’re still fighting it, it’s that we’re having to fight it again. It’s not even Northerners we’re fighting this time, it’s the liberal left, and their professional victims, who have provoked us this time with one of the most evil propaganda onslaughts of sophistry and hate speech that makes the cold war with the late Soviet Union seem like a lovers quarrel.
Up until the late 1980’s, the most beautiful and popular of all the Confederate flags, the rectangular ‘Southern Cross,’ could be seen in schools and on TV and on businesses and other pop culture institutions and it was all just part of the nostalgia. The civil rights movement had eventually been embraced by enough of America, black and white, throughout the country, and the entire nation began to gel as a well-oiled machine the way America was meant to.
It was right around the turn of the decade into the upstart computer-age of the 1990’s when certain organizations that used to be good, and who were supported by most of the country, suddenly decided to remind black people that whitey still hated them. (a lie, of course)
Why would they do such a thing after all we had accomplished? Why paint this picture that nobody helped minorities at all with their plight? Why focus on only the fraction of a percent of the population that were still racists? I am well aware there is still a disproportionate amount of minorities who are poor, but why stop the momentum we had built as a country?
Any good journalist, politician, businessman or police investigator will tell you the same thing – “When in doubt, follow the money.”
“Circumstantial, but very persuasive evidence” as we call it, finally surfaced about a once shining civil rights group who suffered a crushing blow, not from hate groups or white people or Southerners, but from corruption within. They were hemorrhaging money and needed some way play their victim cards from a fresh angle to spur more support and donations.
The rebel flag must have been quite the tempting target. When attacked with the use of the flag by the remnants of hate groups that once numbered in the millions, and popular Yankee revisionist history we were all taught, the plan worked perfectly and made corrupt people rich.
Their attacks were successful enough that they attracted the rest of the left since the South is primarily a conservative Christian nation within a larger nation, diverse in their faith. By the grace of God we wield a vast amount of political power in these united States, which is one more reason for the lefty’s to despise us.
The people who hate the South, wanting to vilify her are not only the race-baiters, but also the people who hate Christians and natural law and conservatism and traditional gender roles, etc. They are bitter and decrepit creatures, emotionally and psychologically unstable, who are so miserable that they anguish for someone to blame for it, as if that will help them. As if silencing any one who could offer valid counter-arguments against their sophistry would make their nihilistic humanist ideology right.
Telling Southerners that they must live with the label of ‘traitors’ and ‘racists’ unless they put that flag away and curse their honored dead is akin to telling blacks that they must be segregated and disenfranchised again unless they accept the ‘nigger’ label, and admit that they are inferior, or telling Jews to publicly admit they are the ‘spawn of Eve and Satan’ and line up for tattoos or else we will exterminate them with gas. It’s all the same ridiculous and abhorrent hate speech, only this time it’s spewing from the pie holes of the left.
So there you have it in a nutshell. We are backed into a corner and are compelled to fight for our honor and dignity.
I leave you with a few select quotes from President Jefferson Davis on the subject:
“Truth crushed to the earth is truth still and, like a seed, will rise again.” (This is where we get our little catch phrase, by the way)
“We protest solemnly in the face of mankind, that we desire peace at any sacrifice, save that of honor.”
“The contest is not over, the strife is not ended. It has only entered upon a new and enlarged arena.”
“The principle for which we contend is bound to reassert itself, though it may be at another time and in another form.”
To us, these few lines are eerily prophetic.
