When Black Lives Matter....

An observation about the graffiti showing up on monuments recently...


The graphic above was inspired by a column by Walter Williams, which began with this:
Each year, roughly 7,000 blacks are murdered. Ninety-four percent of the time, the murderer is another black person. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, between 1976 and 2011, there were 279,384 black murder victims. Using the 94 percent figure means that 262,621 were murdered by other blacks.http://www.creators.com/opinion/walter-williams/should-black-people-tolerate-this.html
The lynching statistics were obtained here: http://www.chesnuttarchive.org/classroom/lynchingstat.html  

Thus, 7000 x 94% = 6850 black on black murders per year, or 570 per month, or 3420 every six months, which is only 26 less than all the lynchings that occurred in 86 years.

I bring this up because I've never seen a single reference to it by leftists and assorted anti-racists. Now why do you suppose that is? What would they say if they were asked to acknowledge it?

Why is it more tragic when a white cop kills a black criminal than when a black criminal kills another black? Why is it more tragic when a white lunatic kills innocent blacks than when a black criminal kills innocent blacks? Are not all the victims equally dead? Aren't their families equally devastated?

Just as some people are more equal than others, some black lives matter more than other black lives, and the difference apparently depends on the race of the person taking them.

Just sayin'.

Outlasting the Tsunami

An artificially created but nevertheless powerful antiConfederate tidal wave of the magnitude of Indonesia's 2004 tsunami, is crashing across the country, and Simpson thinks I should have stopped it in Pensacola. Wish I'd known I had such power. I would have halted Hurricane Ivan a hundred miles out in the Gulf.

Well, no, Simpson really doesn't think that. He knows better. He's just being his usual slimy self. I wonder what such utter meanness does for him.

But on to what really matters. Southerners survived the war, reconstruction, and several generations of deliberately imposed economic oppression resulting in widespread poverty with associated  nutritional deficiency diseases (including but not limited to pellagra and hookworm) and early death. We will survive this war on our heritage, and we will bring it back. It may take years, decades, even generations, but we will. 

We will do on the intangible level of cultural heritage what physically destroyed places have done -- rebuild. We will work to bring it back and the effort will grow easier with time, because the larger culture that surrounds and opposes us will further weaken from the cultural rot of its own making.

The decline and crumpling of the USA would have made me sad, once upon a time....

But that was then. This is now.

Perversion Wins

Debasement wins.
Decadence wins.
Depravity wins.

Decency loses.
Family loses.

America loses.

It's Gonna Take More Than This....

The cultural fascists on the left have really stepped in it this time. They hate traditional Southerners, they hate our love of our region and culture, and especially our affection and respect for the symbol of our region, the Confederate battle flag.

They plan things, of course -- planned the Gramscian march through our western institutions to dismantle our larger culture, and carried out their plans methodically over a period of time.

But they are also reactionaries and opportunists.

They thought that exploiting Dylann Roof's connection to the battle flag would end its public acknowledgement once and for all. And at first, it looked like they could be right. Gov. Haley agreed the flag should come down from the soldier's memorial in Columbia. That was followed by a wave of eager battle flag erasures in public places and private commerce...

The leftist culture manipulators must have been ecstatic ... until flags started blanketing the South, and demonstrations of support and patrols to protect monuments cropped up from one corner of Dixie to the other.  The lefties might well be hearing a voice echoing in their minds, just beneath the cheering -- "I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve." -- attributed to Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto

These aren't created, professional agitators, like the left has to rely on for their demonstrations, bought with cigarettes and free transportation. These are ordinary Southerners speaking from their heart. The leftwingers had no idea what they would awaken. They don't understand motivation from the heart; they only understand foisting their worldview off on everyone; they understand only their own desire to tell others what they can and cannot do, think, believe.

The subculture of the South -- along with its own subcultures -- has been around for centuries. If it didn't go away during the union's struggle to erase it in the civil war and reconstruction, it's going to take more than censoring the battle flag to do it. A LOT more. Frankly, I don't think they have what it takes.

Thus, considering their true goal, they have stepped in failure, bigtime. It's gonna take a while to scrape it off the bottom of their shoes...

So for the messy-shod leftist culture warriors, it's a good thing the Supremes ruled as they did on homosex marriage. They can run to that and dive in, to save face.... Run in their stench-of-failure shoes to stink up their rainbow victory. cuz...

WE'RE STILL HEEEEE-EERE

Pensacola News Journal Cartoonist, um, Editorial Writer Hears from Me

Comment I left yesterday ....

The Confederate flag as a symbol hasn't fallen. It was torn down in an epic display of exploitation and deliberate manipulation. Dylann Roof has emphatically NOT defined it once and for all, and the people saying so are attempting to characterize as evil-by-association an uncountable multitude of decent people who respect and honor this symbol of their heritage and region.

Fundamentally good human beings do not try to paint other good human beings with the evilization brush.

The collapse was swift because it was orchestrated, likely planned in advance, and just awaiting a trigger. That's how our cultural manipulators work.

And the resistance is forming up and taking shape. Already, defense of the flag from people like rocker Charlie Daniels to presidential candidate Jim Webb has circulated online and in social media. Parades, rallies, patrols to protect monuments from desecration and other displays of pride in heritage have appeared. One flag eraser, Apple, has already reversed its decision to remove an app that featured the flag. Expect more retailers to quietly return the flag to retail shelves and online sales outlets in the future.

The multitudes to come out in support of the flag since the manipulation began are not the usual Confederate heritage advocates. For the most part they are simply good, decent Southerners who have been silent for too long, fearing the false but powerfully damaging label, "Racist." Well, now that they are being equated with a mass murderer (by people like you), because he misused a symbol they do not misuse but honor for its genuine meaning, they have, frankly, had enough.

This is not over. It is far from over. Lord, forgive those attempting to drum up hatred and harm on the basis of false association and false interpretation of a symbol -- if and when they repent. They know exactly what they're doing

Unbelievable....

Since Gov. Nikki Haley's announcement that she supports removing the Confederate battle flag from the soldier's monument in South Carolina, a sort of mass insanity has gripped the country, but so far, this tops all the rest. The NAACP is gathering signatures on a petition to get the Virginia Flaggers' I-95 battle flag near Fredericksburg removed.

The Washington Post reports that the petition will be presented the Virginia state House and Senate, Gov. Terry McAuliffe, Congress and President Obama.  Man, they want the full force of the law to land on the Virginia Flaggers, don't they?


But this flag is on private property.

This isn't the first time flag-haters have attempted to get the flag off private property. Kristin Konate collected signatures via an online petition to keep the first flag from going up near Richmond, in Chester. She gathered 20,000 signatures. The flag went up anyway and is still there, unless it has fallen prey to vandalism and/or theft the past few hours.

What this illustrates is the leftist's disregard for the rule of law. The flag is on private property and the government has no authority to tell people what flags they cannot fly on their property. Doesn't matter. Leftists see government as their Big Mama to comfort and soothe them when something happens they don't like, and, paradoxically, their personal thumb-breaker to coerce those who do something they don't like.  Doesn't matter if its legal and protected by law. What matter to them is how they feel and what they want.

It wasn't long ago that the flag on private property would be protected by law -- but now that's questionable. Considering the recent Supreme Court decisions, we can no longer expect Constitutional norms to be respected. Laws and rulings will be subjected to the force of whim.

The court showed us long ago that it does not hold human life sacred. These most recent cases show that the court no longer rules on the basis of the Constitution, but on the personal whim and the ideological beliefs of the individual justices. Perhaps it isn't likely, but it is very possible that the SCOTUS will abolish private property rights to appease the whim of the NAACP, which will be the end of the rule of law and the end of Constitutional protection ... of anything.

Message from the Virginia Flaggers

June 25, 2015 -- The onslaught of attacks against our flags, our Veterans, and our heritage in recent days is unprecedented. While we have obviously suffered setbacks, we are encouraged by what appears to be the beginning of an outcry and push back from Southerners across the country. Over the course of two days, we have seen an increase of fans on our Facebook page by over 1,000 NEW followers. Our email, messaging, and phone messages are swamped with requests for assistance, offers of support, and folks wanting to know what they can do to get involved. We believe that this is a crucial time and we must find a way to engage EVERYONE who is ready to stand and fight for our heritage.
 
The Virginia Flaggers have for some time advocated for a shift of responsibility of honoring our ancestors from municipalities to individuals and heritage groups. The Interstate Flag projects, patterned after the Georgia SCV Division's "Project Wave" initiative are one offshoot of this. We also encourage ALL supporters of Confederate heritage to fly a Confederate flag on your personal property and would like to call EVERYONE to put up a flag and have it flying by Sunday, June 28th, in a show of solidarity of the Southern people, to take a stand against the tide of hate and misinformation, and in honor and memory of the CONFEDERATE SOLDIERS who fought and died in the War Between the States.

“National Raise Your Battle Flag Day”, SUNDAY, JUNE 28th! Fly a Confederate flag, take a photo and post on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram…across social media, with the hashtag #RaiseYourBattleFlag, and post the photos to our Facebook page.

Not Even Tragedy Stops His Lies

Comments by Simpson at his slimy blog:

I find Connie Chastain’s ranting on this topic to be most amusing. After all, she runs a hate blog of the sort that would inspire someone to take violent action given her rabid intolerance.

What utter tripe, coming from somebody who has been trying for years to drum up hatred for Southern heritage folks in general, the Virginia Flaggers in particular, and most especiall Susan Hathaway.

She’s even endorsed the threat of violence against anti-Flagger protesters as self defence

Have no idea what he's talking about, but he lies all the time, so there's no telling. Interesting, though, that he reveals himself to be against self-defense.

...and we all remember how she poo-pooed Pat Hines’s threats of violence.

I said it wasn't a credible threat. Facebook agreed with me. The FBI agreed with me.

Meanwhile she continues to entertain thoughts of violence against Confederate heritage advocates as a form of literary inspiration.

Yes, the way Alex Haley did -- don't see Simpson complaining about that. And look at all these novelists who've written about violent stalkers. Don't hear him complaining about that. Obviously, he's just evilizing somebody he doesn't like. It's what he does.  http://www.barnesandnoble.com/s/?aref=1518&dref=9%2C1740%2C3035

We’ve already seen the Virginia Flaggers counterattack: they have even complained about people protesting their events.

Sometimes, Simpson's lies are just revolting -- and this just just another lie designed to drum up hatred for the VaFlaggers. Here's their "counterattack" and "complaint":
We obviously support their right to assemble peacefully and make their "points", and hope they appreciate that adding folks to the sidewalk, even if they are not working with us, draws more attention to our Cause, and increases the spotlight on the VMFA...and all the while we don't have to do anything except continue to stand, which we will do.
http://vaflaggers.blogspot.com/2015/06/vaflaggers-to-remain-standing.html
See, here is another attempt to associate the VaFlaggers with white supremacy, and perhaps make them the target of a crazed "antiracist."

Remember, their webmaster already excuses kidnapping children as a simple domestic dispute.


In the one case he's talking about (one child, "children") it is a domestic dispute. Unless he think the mother is a stranger who slipped in a window and took the child, Hauptmann-style? 

When will she explain away murder?


Never. When will you stop lying and stop drumming up hatred for Susan and the VaFlaggers?

Kevin Levin Appears Positively Giddy....

...in the wake of the brutal murders in South Carolina. Why? Apparently he thinks it will accelerate the agenda of wiping out Confederate heritage forever, one of his greatest wishes and fondest dreams. His post about it is astonishingly hyper.

Among other things, in typical thought-cop fashion, he says, "The fact that individuals may have different interpretations of the Confederate flag is irrelevant in this situation," (this situation being, among other things, the Confederate flag on the soldier's monument in Columbia).

Ah, no it's not irrelevant. In fact, it is more relevant than ever. The right of people to their interpretations must be protected -- about that flag and everything else about our heritage -- and it is more than arrogant, it's unconscionable, for Kevin Levin to declare that our right to our interpretations must be subject to his human, fallible and extremely prejudiced and bigoted judgment.

But there's more.

Attempts to portray heritage folks as white supremacists, to define their affinity for the Confederate flag with racism rather than honoring soldiers, has always been annoying and infuriating. But now we see that it could also turn out to be very dangerous.

Thanks to leftist encroachment on our educational institutions, especially since the civil rights movement, masses of Americans are completely irrational about race relations, totally focused on the narrowest interpretation of the civil war (with Confederates as total evil with no redeeming characteristics, indeed, no human-ness at all), and utterly and dangerously brainwashed about the Confederate flag -- as dangerously brainwashed as Dylann Roof. Haters will double down their attempts to equate heritage folks with lunatics like Roof and incite hatred for us in the dangerously brainwashed.

Who doubts that there are brainwashed leftwing lunatics out there who need but a small push to send them over the edge, and create a Dylann Roof-in-reverse?

A horrific manmade storm has appeared on the horizon, aimed right at us. Let's be careful out there. Mourn for the victims in Charleston, but keep your eyes open, stay informed, and take no chances.
