Confederate flag still flies over Denver

DENVER, COLORADO- All eyes have been on South Carolina, Bree Newsome, and the White Supremacist rallies which have percolated since, but Colorado indignants could note that a Confederate battle flag does still fly over Denver. The historic Riverside Cemetery commemorates Memorial Day, Veterans Day, and notable Civil War anniversaries with flags honoring American soldiers. They don’t fly Old Glory over the Confederate vets and the manager assured me they don’t plan to dishonor the Rebels with a Union flag anytime soon. On the graveyard’s Northwest side, nearest to the Evans crypt there’s a cobblestone patch where the bricks are engraved with the names of Colorado veterans who served the Confederacy. Over the gathering is a flag pole which was dedicated in 2003. It’s a discrete affair visible to only visitors touring the cemetery’s historic tombstones or dog-walkers heading out to the Riverside’s wetland conservation area.

Drop symbols of White Supremacy, but don’t embolden government supremacy

SORRY, I DO HAVE A PROBLEM with government telling me how to think or telling me what I can’t say. Flags mean a lot to me and I CAN imagine MY flag being declared hateful or a public threat. How is anyone to rally like-minded dissenters when a government and its corporate media can declare their rallying symbol non grata? I don’t like the Confederate rebel flag either, it is modern code for unrepentant white racism, but I’m hugely skeptical when Big Brother is driving the bandwagon. How amusing that activists eager to burn Confederate flags find that the major retailers have already banned them. There’s a statement you’re being prevented making.

Scrap White Supremacy but we must cling tightly to the supremacy of individuals over their government.

Could the censors come for your flag too? I’m not big on national flags. However, the flags with which I associate ideologically, let’s be honest, scream regicide.

Imagine if the next mass shooter lunatic leaves selfies with an Anarchist flag or an Anon mask. “Rise up” is hate speech to oligarchs.

Guys, when Walmart, Target, Dixie politicians and the White House are on your side, you’re fantasizing and you’re on the wrong side.

If the vocabulary of racism, such as the word “nigger”, is effaced, how are we to talk about it? We had this argument about Mark Twain’s use of the word in Huckleberry Finn. Literature lost as I remember.

How blessed we would be to forget about slavery, except the same demographic is enslaved today in the prison system, while we white-out the words we need to recognize it.

Let’s be generous for a moment. The “Rebel” Flag, even as it draws racists like flies, is also about rebellion. Did you know the Civil War wears a revisionist title? Until America’s foreign excursions, the Civil War was called the War of Rebellion. Formal documents of the period are still bound as the Union’s record of the War of Rebellion.

Who effected the name change and why? Did it benefit the victor to write the history of the Civil War to cast slavery as its predominant issue? To justify the sacrifice of lives and trampling of state sovereignty?

The American national identity is that of revolutionaries rebelling against authoritarian rule. Was it confusing to let the bad guys usurp the rebel image?

I think it’s a lie to believe the common Southerner fought to preserve slavery. Just as it is to pretend the common German soldier defended the extermination camps. The average Johnny Rebel fought off the Yankee foreigner. Johnny Rebel was racist but no more so than his northern adversary. Lynchings of black men happened in both North and South.

If you want to hold a flag to account for racism, you’ll find a greater offender in the Union Flag, and today’s fifty star equivalent. The Stars and Stripes flew over the slave trade, the genocide of Native Americans, and the conquest and exploitation of indigenous peoples everywhere since.

If you want to fight racism, address its mechanisms. Address its leaders, not its disputable standard. The flag is a distraction. Who are racism’s enforcers? I read that Maryland police just killed another unarmed black man. Eye on that ball.

Judging history as we’ve distilled it, the cause of the Confederacy was unjust, but the Southern soldiers fought the Union as rebels.

I am damn partial to REBELS.

I’m reminded of the lyrics to I’m a Good Old Rebel. These reflect sentiments contemporary to the Reconstruction era, unreconstructed by the abolitionist narrative. Read ’em and weep.

Oh, I’m a good old rebel,?
Now that’s just what I am.?
For this Fair Land of Freedom,
?I do no give a damn.?
I’m glad I fought again’ her,
?I only wish we won.
?I ain’t asked any pardon for anything I’ve done.

I hates the Yankee Nation and everything they do.
?I hates the Declaration of Independence, too.?
I hates the glorious Union, ’tis dripping with our blood.?
I hates the striped banner, and fought it all I could.

I rode with Robert E. Lee,?
For three years, thereabout.?
Got wounded in four places,
?And I starved at Point Lookout.
?I catched the rheumatism
?A campin’ in the snow.?
But I killed a chance of Yankees
?And I’d like to kill some more.

Three hundred thousand Yankees
?Is stiff in southern dust.?
We got three hundred thousand?
Before they conquered us.?
They died of Southern Fever
?And Southern steel and shot.?
I wish there were three million
?Instead of what we got.

?I can’t pick up my musket?
And fight ’em down no more.?
But I ain’t agonna love ’em?
Now that is certain sure.
?And I don’t want no pardon?
For what I was and am.?
I won’t be reconstructed?
And I do not give a damn.

Oh, I’m a good old rebel,
?Now that’s just what I am.?
And for this Yankee Nation,
?I do no give a damn.?
I’m glad I fought again’ her,?
I only wish we won.?
I ain’t asked any pardon for anything I’ve done.?
I ain’t asked any pardon for anything I’ve done.

Take down THAT flag


If you think taking down a flag can address the systemic oppression of people of color, have at it, but BOY DO YOU HAVE THE WRONG FLAG.

The “Confederate flag” flies over civil war memorial cemeteries and gravestones across America. Veteran and veteran-lovers cling to the notion that soldiers don’t give their lives in vain, so they are honored by the flag they fought for, in half the cases, the Confederate States. The Confederacy is as defunct as the sovereign nation of Texas, or the Third Reich for that matter, whose flags and insignia retain a similar appeal, often to the same demographic. Even if we pretend the Rebel flag represented the half of the US which defended slavery, it is not the standard that flew over the slave ships or plantations, or Charleston Bay for that matter, for the hundreds of years before the 1861-65 War of Rebellion. Those flags were many and international but it’s safe to say that the nationalist flag that most symbolizes Western racist imperialism is the American Red, White and Blue.

Who presided over the retention of slavery, over segregation, over lynching, over genocide, over the continued suppression of African American empowerment? Whose flag assailed the Native Americans, crossed the Pacific, and hasn’t stopped yet? To address America’s ingrained racism, take THAT flag down!

Battle of ChickamaugaThere’s an easy fix for our country’s Civil War graves and memorials. Replace the rebel flags with the “Stars and Bars” the authentic flag of the Confederate States. It has none of the white klan cache. As for the mistakenly iconic “Battle Flag”, BURN IT! If that offends Southerners, too bad, but have some empathy, you’re probably clinging to the Stars and Stripes with the same unbecoming nostalgia.

The Stark truth about race in Texas.

Of course, now the Land Commissioner is putting through using his State Agency an official OK for issuing license plates with the confederate Hate Flag for a group called Sons Of Confederate Veterans. A group for which I qualify but I would never darken their doorway because I believ Know For A FACT that they’re celebrating a four-year long continuous 9/11 Terror Attack against Americans, for the purpose of the “states right” to use state funds and state police and state militia to enforce the perpetual denial of every human right to Americans based on the color of their skin. They’re a front group for the Klan in other words.
But that’s not the whole story nor where I got the title for this post.
I had a neighbor in Polytechnic Heights, a neighborhood in Ft Worth. Her name was Mrs Stark. Age 98. One early morning, I wasn’t there, I was in Oklahoma at Job Corps learning to cook…. she was struck by the Poly Rapist. Who was actually more than one person. Struck repeatedly with a hammer then raped, then laft to die. For all that, she lived another week or so in intensive care. The attackers were a youth gang. Teenagers. And black. But that isn’t really relevant, they didn’t rape little old ladies because they were white or the attackers black, it wasn’t revenge for slavery or anything like that. They were just cowards, out for the cheapest thrill available. Which during that long hot summer was rape and murder. It wasn’t racially based, it was based on them finding the easiest victims, the ones most helpless. God help the stupid bastard who tries to tell me that White Americans never attacked or don’t still attack the most helpless victims, they’re not off the hook.
This was the late 70s, legalized segregation wasn’t a very distant memory. There was a very half-hearted offer from the Klan to patrol the streets. Yeah right. They were fishing for a way to look like martyrs, prevented from Nobly Protecting The Elderly by Liberals. While the Stark truth was that they wouldn’t have been able to do it. They, too, prefer their victims to be as helpless as possible. They were going to try to play it up as a Black vs White conflict.

They don’t have the intestines for a real New Civil War but they’ll start one anyway and hide behind the real combatants. Same as they do in Iraq and Afghanistan. They’ll try to use the “reverse racism” issue to propel Perry or some other Racist Moron into the White House. Count the bleeding corpses later but get their short term profit guaranteed.

Hell, they might even dig up Mrs Stark, hopefully not literally, as a rallying cry for their Hate-based (per) Version of Christianity.

The best weapon against Hatred is Truth. Hate needs lies to manifest itself and perpetuate itself.
Lies like those spread by the Sons Of Confederate Veterans, “Heritage” groups, and the polish the turd bullshit artists who still insist that there’s no hatred involved in their acts. The State of Mississippi is going ahead, as far as I know, with their plans to issue commemorative license plates honoring Nathan Bedford Forrest, one of the founders of the Klan and a War criminal who had American prisoners of war murdered (Oh, I’m supposed to say “executed”, my bad) at Ft Pillow for the crime of being escaped property.

But that’s not hate, it’s Heritage.
And since the majority of the Union Soldiers killed during the 4 Year Organized Terrorist Hate Crime that was the Confederacy were White, that makes it a White-on-White hate crime too. To the tune of a half million Americans slaughtered.

They want to revise history to revive History, to revive the hatred. Stand in the breach with Truth, never falter.

Shit I learned in school

…because, really, I DO believe there’s a deliberate sabotage of Public Education being done simply by handing a “liberal” program over to be administered by “conservatives”.
In 7th grade in Texas you’re taught Texas History. Some of it would be almost unrecognizable from a Yankee point of view.
For instance, we were taught that the Civil War wasn’t about slavery, it was about State’s Rights.
State’s Rights to spend civic money and exercise military and police powers to enforce slavery.
We were also told, and I have reason to believe that it’s gotten worse, we were told that the Slaves were well treated, given decent food and housing, and Medical Care. Happy Days on de ol’ Plantation wif all de Darkies singin’ and happy and de Massa jes’ lubbin all of dem!
O, de sun shines bright
on my old Kentucky home
it’s summer and the darkies are gay…
You smile and laugh and sing because the Massah would beat you and maybe have you killed if you indicated any dissatisfaction with the arrangement. It’s that simple.
The Slaves were all Happy and Content and Well Treated… so why do the Corporate Slaveholders of the Modern Plantation, the ones who advance this bald-face lie about how good slaves had it, refuse to provide health care and good nutrition and housing for their Debt-slaves?
Is it only profitable to provide a decent standard of living if you outright OWN the workers?

They don’t make too much comment about how these Happy, Contented Slaves all smilin’ and singin’ and the Good Massah lubbin’ every one of dem… why they would be forbidden to take any outside employment in their spare time, to perhaps earn enough money to buy their freedom?
The Prison System uses a similar tactic to keep its slaves from escaping, if you’re caught with money you’re punished.
Likewise the Slaves were forbidden Education, even so much as to teach a slave to read was punishable by death. And to BE that slave?
Thus are the scions of the Debt Slaves treated now, public education being snatched away from our kids and allocated only to the children of the Merchant master class.
And health care and nutrition… look to the TeaTards with their anger and hatred toward people who actually receive health care, which the TeaTard Hate Freak leaders say only the Wealthy deserve.

Of course they will LIE and say they’re only looking out for States Rights…. Corporate State rights to hold people in slavery.
And threatening a new Civil War in which they’ll kill a lot of Americans to keep things that way.
Them Corporate Slaveowners sho’ does love them the idea of Killing Americans.
Why I believe the Texas History Textbooks are being slanted more to the right… Rick “GoodHair” Perry, fascist dictator of Texas, said the older textbooks were too Liberal WTF?
And in Texas the Governor determines the curriculum for the schools in the entire state. So look for even MORE brainwashed morons who will grow up thinking that keeping human beings in bondage and Killing PEOPLE who object is actually a good thing.

Mississippi set to honor Klan Founding Father Bedford-Forrest

With “heritage” license plates. “It’s not Hate, it’s Heritage… a heritage of hating people so badly that we would deny them liberty from before they’re born and tear our nation apart, slaughter all together a half million Americans, in order to keep them as Slaves.” This is the guy whose orders, carried out, were to massacre Union P.O.W.s because they were black. After the surrender of Ft Pillow, April 12th 1864. A real American TERRORIST, infamous for his saying of “Save your Confederate Money, the South will rise again!” and urged that among others, General Robert E Lee should be hanged for surrendering, and every Confederate soldier refuse to honor the surrender, and keep the war going forever.

So far his Terrorist Movement has kept it going for a hundred and fifty years and with the addition of Lincoln’s Party and the TeaBag RACISTS to their list of allies.

I saw one bumper sticker here in Colorado Springs last year, had the Confederate Battle Flag and the POW flag and the slogan, “This flag would never have left you behind”.

Unless, of course, you happened to not be White in which case the proponents of the Hate-filled Cause represented by the flag would have simply killed you. The car had Texas tags.

Muslim Mommas never cry and other heinous lies

What got me started on this offering was a TV show on at midnight, only lasted (from my perspective, because the channel got changed quickly) for about two minutes. The show was about 9/11 survivors. One of them said “That’s the difference between America and everybody else… in America when there’s great tragedy and danger people band together and help each other out”. So that means the only people on the entire surface of the planet where people actually have Human Feelings is in America, and everybody else is incapable of actual humanity. Subhumans in other words. Nothing Racist about that? No Religious bigotry either, like when a Muslim preacher orating at a funeral says the deceased is in Paradise, that’s supposedly cold-hearted brainwashing and encouraging the other members of the congregation to do suicide bombings.

When a sold-out Christian Priest, military OR civilian, says that a fallen American soldier is in Heaven, that’s of course not anything to do with glorifying the war that killed the soldier or saying that the cause was just, and righteous, and ordained by God, is it?

Especially when so many of these Sold-out Priests actually DO come right out and say that their version of Jihad/Crusade really IS just, righteous, ordained by God… A “Holy” War in other words.

The Anti-Islam Pro-Holy War Media break out a doll allegedly given to Palestinian kids with bombs, guns, swords and other knives, with a faction-specific headscarf identifying the doll as being Hamas.

and of course, like the funerary eulogy, is “brainwashing the kids to become suicide bombers” while the U.S. version thereof, pictured here, is NOT brainwashing the kids to be Fighter Pilots, Bomber Pilots, Drone Manipulators, Marines, Soldiers and Seamen who use large numbers of heavily armed comrades and high tech weaponry to Kill People using guns, bombs, knives and torture techniques applied to handcuffed prisoners… because, of course, the High-Tech weaponry makes the notion of a Suicide Bomber unnecessary.

If other people who don’t have access to a Drone that can be launched from a heavily guarded air force base and controlled by some Coward Punk Uniformed Child sitting at a desk at an air base in Nebraska, use the more “hands on” approach to delivering their ordinance, then THEY are the cowardly ones, right?

Teaching uniformed children to use weapons and military techniques and tactics is of course a strictly un-American concept, because we would NEVER do that, including not teaching our kids to use the same skills they would need to manipulate Drone Robot Bombs into the living space of other Human Beings with the purpose of Killing The Other Human Beings, by remote control…

No, that’s the province of Other People.

When an American Child is killed violently, usually the violence either accidental or deliberate occurs in America.

Since by most counts the U.S. majority is White and Christian, that means that the majority of both Victims and Victors would be Christian Whites.

Unless you have the silly-ass notion that American Christian Whites don’t ever commit violent crimes.

Until the insertion, forcibly, of the Killer Kristian Krusade into Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq, most violent contact between people in the regions would by default be by other Iraqi, Afghan or Pakistani citizens. “Killing their own people” is the screeching denunciation launched against every Muslim on the planet by Professional Lying Crybabies, like the Pentagon Media Liaisons and their largely unacknowledged Killer Kreep Komrades at FOX and AP and BBC “news” Outlets.

So where is the outcry, whither the screams of loud lamentation, over American White Christians in America “killing their own people”?

Oh, that’s right, it’s all from the “discredited” Radical Left. And of course disproved, even though the facts are obvious, simply because a Leftist writes about it.

And of course wouldn’t reflect on the patent dishonesty or Moral Cowardice of the Radical Right.

Nor would their myths that AFDC, Food Assistance and Medicaid go mostly to Black Americans, when the fact is that White Americans, simply being in the majority, depend more heavily on these “entitlement” programs.

Since RICH Americans are in the tiniest minority and people living below the poverty line are the Vast Majority.

“Average” income and “Median” income don’t mean “half the people in the country make that much or above”.

That would take some Algebra, true, but it’s basic algebra. Anybody who plays checkers or dominoes or any card game knows the basic math to work out that 85% of the wealth being controlled by 5% of the population means there’s 95% of the population would control only 15% of the wealth. In order for a middle class to even exist would mean that the “underclass” those of us “subhumans” who don’t make anywhere near Median Income, is the true Majority.

But it’s only Racial, religious and ethnic minorities who have Public Assistance. Which counts for less than half the Federal Budget. According to the Hate-Mongers.

They also have a myth that Federal Prisoners get food stamp and AFDC benefits. Ronald Reagan, GHW Bush and Newt Gingrich made a campaign issue of it, and actually won. So did “libertarian hero” Ron ‘not really a racist but i play one on TV’ Paul.

And the REAL Welfare Payout, to the “defense” Contractors, is more than half the budget, and going to a tiny minority of the people in the country.

The ones who fund the Hate-Speech Demagogues like Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck and Ron Paul to tell us that Black and Hispanic people on public assistance is what’s breaking the budget.

And incite more Racially Motivated Wars, too, so they can keep their “defense” industry sponsors’ snouts firmly in the trough.

And if Americans of any ethnic, religious, racial or political subculture, get killed in the process, that of course isn’t Anti-American violence, because of course, the Tea Party and other Ku Klux Klown groups have reserved for themselves the right to say who is or is not a “Real” American. People of Ethnic, Religious or Political Difference to the Tea Party “mainstream” need not apply.

National “burn the confederate flag” day, 9/12

Because the Hatemongers and Deathmongers have gotten increasingly abusive in their rallies to drum up support of Killing People. While they say they’re not Racist about it in any way, they do fly the Confederate Battle Flag, the “Southern Cross” and sometimes bear signs saying “Not Hate, Heritage” and the Hate Flag.
It’s a heritage of hatred. Of forcing Americans to surrender their liberties before birth based on THEIR heritage and the color of their skins. Their Hate Heritage, and mine, killed about 300,000 AMERICANS who opposed their Slavery and another 180,000 of their own comrades. Fighting for nothing more, from their sick point of view, than Hatred of other human beings that is so fierce even today that they feel it was right to keep them in bondage.

So it doesn’t have to be a BIG flag, or even made of cloth, Just print on up on your color printer or go to Kinko’s or someplace similar and pay a quarter to have it printed, full color, on both sides. And burn it in front of the Racist TeaBags and other hate freaks who are pushing for endless war.

Burn the flag to show solidarity with the notion of People being more than, and worth more than, property. The Corporate Privateers have gotten a couple of Supreme Court decisions that their Corporations have more rights than actual Humans do.

Their support of the Insurance Lobby against Universal Health Coverage was based on the same principle of their “states rights” of our ancestors.
The “right” to own human beings, and that emancipation of those human beings was somehow an abridgment of Their Rights to own property. Only, the “property” was Human Beings.
The Insurance Lobby claims that a Government Health Care option would be such devastating competition that they would lose their “property” in other words, OUR business is their property. OUR health care is somehow THEIR property, to be bought and sold at their whim.

It’s the Dred Scott decision all over again, only this time it’s EVERY American who is deprived of our liberty without due process, EVERY American sold as chattel, as Slaves, to the Insurance Corporations.

Force them to admit their Slaver attitude.

Waving that particular Hate-Flag is like what the American National Socialist White Persons Party did in Skokie Illinois, parading Nazi Uniforms and Flags through a Jewish Neighborhood. They wave this Flag of Hate in contempt of all decency and morality.

Hysterical Revisionist Virginia Tea Party attempts another test of Anti-Smart Bomb Strategy, EPIC FAIL!

As we approach the Sesquicentennial (150 years) of the Civil War (massive contradiction in terms) the Commonwealth of Virginia attempted to pass off a “Confederate History Month” with no mention whatsodamnever of slavery. Even with decades of attempting to show that display of the Confederate Southern Cross battle flag (not an official confederate national flag, incidentally) is somehow not a symbol of Racism.
 
(These colors don’t run… A God-Damn thing.)

The slogan “Not Hate – Heritage!!” is on posters, tee-shirts, bumper stickers, pasted onto Bibles, whatever and wherever. Pure Chumba-Wumba.
“Sure, we don’t hate us no Nigras, we just feel y’all are so inferior to us that we can deprive you of liberty directly from birth, just on account of the color of your skin”
Due to the institutionalized “right” for the slave “owners” to RAPE any one of the slaves they wished at any time, unless a Black American is a recent immigrant from Africa, he’s got Confederate heritage too.
They’ve been teaching, for generations, that the Confederacy wasn’t about Slavery, that it was “States’ Rights”… Meaning, the state has the right to spend Public Money, and use State police and court powers, to the direct benefit of Private Corporations who systematically denied Liberty to Human Beings, based on the color of their skin.

And they’re STILL trying to push off this Racist Lie as being real. It has a double edge to it, first the Rich Bastards who would profit from another civil war, or think they would, believe that Black and Hispanic and Indian Southerners will be STUPID enough to ignore the history, much of it very recent, of Racism openly displayed alongside the Confederate battle flag.
They also believe that WHITE Southerners will be retarded enough to believe it, so, y’all rednecks, guess what? The slavery cartel think YOU are stupid too.

Now, here’s the fun part. The Governor of Virginia, and the Governor of Texas, both have loudly threatened to secede over the pure Arrogance of a Black man bucking THEIR system and actually being elected President. They deny it, but then, they deny that Slavery was the reason for secession and for the Confederacy and for the Civil War.

To use a Jewish saying, they’re pissing on our collective leg and saying that it’s rain.

But the Citizens of the Commonwealth, a HUGE bloc of voters, who voted in the 70 MILLION voter bloc who rejected the Racist Regime of Bush and his annointed replacement Sarah Failin’ and John McInsane… forced the newly elected governor (the one who is supposedly a rejection of the Black President by the same voters) to concede on this.

So, will Texas, and Virginia, and Tennessee, etc.. actually Secede? Fat Chance.

The last time Texas seceded the black and hispanic and Native American Indians didn’t have the vote, were forbidden by law to own firearms, and the Blacks were forbidden under pain of well, PAIN to learn to read, and the death penalty for anybody who TAUGHT slaves to read.
They continued this “Not Hate” tradition all the way into the 1960s, Teachers were the primary targets of the “Not Hate, Heritage” Flag waving Ku Klux Klan.
Feed the rednecks the Chumba-Wumba about how proud and noble their ancestors were for being STUPID enough to buy into that Lie the first time around, and then forbid the Blacks to become educated. Didn’t work, did it? The Plan, since the Nixon Regime, was to cut public Education as far as they could, accelerated greatly by the Reagan/Bush/Bush Jr Regime.

And after Generations of MASSIVE indoctrination of the Whites and equally massive attempts to suppress educational opportunities for “the others” they failed to slip that “no mention of slavery” bit past The People of Virginia. They’re failing to slip it past the people of Texas.

The only way Secession would work is with an overwhelming Majority of Texans or residents of other states backing it up. They don’t even have an overwhelming Majority of WHITE Texans, what are they going to do? Secede anyway and force the dissenters to leave their homes, families, businesses, communities? “Love it or Leave It”?

Actually, the easiest way would be, if you can’t deal with Democracy, can’t deal with a rejection of your Racist Values, oh Mighty Whitey Secessionists, YOU leave. There’s a colony of U.S. Imperialists in Costa Rica, they even forced the natives to abandon their own language and adopt English names and the English language for the privilege of being their Servants.

The dialog goes something like this “What’s yo name, boy?”
“Miguel”
WHIPLASH Whip whip whip…
“No, Yo name TOBY…”

This would work until the “peasants” have had quite enough of it, storm the gated communities of their “masters” and drag them out and kill them.

The U.S. Army, which already has a huge percentage of the soldiers being Black and Hispanic (because the whites just ain’t turning out in droves to fight for their own profits and Black and Hispanic children are the new favorite target of the recruiters) will refuse to fight for the New Confederacy. They would also refuse to fight for a New Confederacy in Texas and Virginia.

Shit, people ain’t as stupid as Governors Rick GoodHair Perry and Bob McDonnell think they are.
The Anti-Smart Bomb is proving to be a Dud.

America is not a “white” nation

Well now… an apparently Southern person wrote in response to an article about the Tea-Baggers and Other Klan Affiliates espousing Hate Crimes against black American PEOPLE, under the banners of the Failed Confederate States, that “you are an Idiot” and saying something about the “palling around with terrorists” badly disproved Tea Party Rhetoric. And then saying that the Southern States will secede along with Alaska. And of course all Southerners are going to agree to this, Right? Allow me to remind you of a few things…

The South has changed quite a bit since you Racist Retards decided you were going to take your toys and leave, miffed because a Yankee from Illinois of Mixed Race (what, you didn’t hear that part in Texas History? Abraham Lincoln was from an ethnic group called Malargeons, and was often said to be Negro. Of course, in Modern Southern classrooms the Lies from the Last Secession movement about States Rights are more prevalent than saying it was about race) was Elected President and was going to attempt a major bit of Reform which put Human Rights above property “rights” in the case of the “right” to keep Human Beings as property. The secessionists won’t have the votes to do it. Same reason they didn’t have the votes to stop America from electing Barack Obama to be President. America isn’t a “white” nation and neither are any of the states.

What would you do, Secessionists, to force the Black and Hispanic AMERICANS in “your” states to either join you in secession or get out?

Would you get the White Sheets out of grandpa’s closet and ride out lynching anybody who didn’t go along with the idea? That’s what the Confederacy did the first time, and the only reason they could get it to work TEMPORARILY was the fact that the blacks were held in slavery and deliberately kept ignorant, not allowed to learn to so much as read on pain of beatings and death. They were also kept unarmed. Do you seriously believe that you’ll be able to peddle that same kind of shit today? Take all the Tea-Baggers in Texas and descend on ONE Black American enclave, maybe Polytechnic Heights or Stop Six in Ft Worth, maybe South Oak Cliff in Dallas or 5th Ward in Houston. Or the equally hated-by-the-Tea-Party-and-other-Klan-groups Hispanics, the ones who your Stupid Loudmouth Leaders Beck and Limbaugh were confidently predicting would vote against Barack Obama because the Fox News Retards calculated them to be every bit as stupidly racist as the Tea-Baggers. Go to Segundo Barrio in El Paso with that shit.

Tell them you’re taking over completely in Texas. See how long you would last. Try the same thing in Birmingham Alabama, see how far you get with that.

See, in order for your “we’re going to take all our toys and go home” snivelly little Tantrum to work, you would have to have unanimous support. You won’t get it.

Just like you didn’t “get” the idea that 70 MILLION Americans voted against your Racist “white is right” Platform in the last election.

Maybe you were counting on the Ignorance Factor, well, even with the deliberate sabotage of Public Schools in Texas and the rest of America ever since there WAS such an animal as Public Education, people aren’t as stupid and racist as you hoped in the last election, where once again I have to remind you 70 MILLION Americans rejected your Racist Platform. The Commonwealth of Virginia rejected your Racist Platform.

But you believe that somehow you’re going to unite all the people of the South and do it under the Confederate Hate Flag?

Sir or Madame, YOU truly are an idiot.

I’m a good old rebel

Excepting that the South fought for slavery and rural feudalism, their nostalgia is libertarian. Is that the enduring emotional charge behind flying the Confederate flag? Hoyt Axton recorded I’m a Good Old Rebel as being a “song of the Civil War,” but the spirit is decidedly Post.

I’m a Good Old Rebel
 
Oh, I’m a good old rebel, now that’s just what I am.
For this here land of freedom I do not give a damn.
I’m glad I fought against it, I only wish we’d won.
I ain’t asked any pardon for anything I’ve done.
 
I hates the Yankee nation and eveythin’ they do.
I hates the Declaration of Independence too.
I hates the glorious union, ’tis dripping with our blood.
I hates the striped banner, I fought it all I could.
 
I rode with Robert E. Lee for three years there about.
Got wounded in four places and I starved at Point Lookout.
I caught the rheumatism a campin’ in the snow,
But I killed a chance of Yankees, and I’d like to kill some more.
 
Three hundred thousand Yankees is stiff in Southern dust.
We got three hundred thousand before they conquered us.
They died of Southern fever and Southern steel and shot.
I wished it was three million, instead of what we got.
 
I can’t take up my musket and fight ’em down no more,
But I ain’t a-goin’ to love them now, that is certain sure.
I won’t be reconstructed, I’m better now than them.
And for that carpetbagger, I don’t give a damn.
 
Oh, I’m a good old rebel, now that’s just what I am
And for this Yankee nation I do no give a damn.
I’m glad I fought against her, I only wish we’d won.
I ain’t asked any pardon for anything I’ve done.
