Toldja, Part Deux

Florida man ordered to remove American flag display 
Residents of a Florida city covered their neighborhood with hundreds of American flags Monday in support of a local hardware store told to remove six American flags from its property.   Story and video here
As I've noted before ... what goes around, comes around.  Or ... paybacks are H-E- double hockey sticks and karma's a be-yotch.

Hey, good, loyal, leftist American starzinstripe-lovin' statists -- how does it feel to have your own methods turned on you? And remember -- it's only gonna get worse.

Whittle Nails It ... Again

A number of things concern me ... there are even a few things I fear. But ebola fever isn't one of them -- and Whittle does a fine job of presenting the reasons why I ain't skeered of coming down with it. What's interesting about ebola to me is the reaction to it in this country and what it says about us -- and about our government and its meddling and intrusion into health care.

What it says about the government is that it is either (a) astonishingly inept or (b) astonishingly uncaring about the population it is supposed to represent. Personally, I think it's a little of both. (You can see this starkly in the government's illegal importation of multitudes of kids from Central America, with basically no health screening or precautions.)

The dumbing down of American kids, starting with the baby boomer generation (talkin' 'bout MY generation) in our elementary school years, has now been increasingly implemented for three generations. Americans have been indoctrinated by the  leftist-run school system to see themselves as incompetent and government as the answer -- the caretaker. The problem is, officials in government come from the same pool of dumbed down people, and instances of  government incompetence that have resulted are paraded before us in the news, day after day.

As low as we have fallen, we still haven't reached the point where we hack to death people (unless, of course, we are Muslim converts) who are trying to help us; but I have seen on Facebook comments by people who suspect, like the Africans Whittle mentions, that efforts to combat the problem are actually efforts to spread it, in disguise.

We are the nation that basically won a global war and put men on the moon... But that was accomplished by the final un-dumbed down generation. By now, the USA has become a parody of itself...

Quote of the Week ... or Month ... or Whatever

I think the Virginia Flaggers err when they fly the CSA navy jack/Army of Tennessee flag as a salute to the soldiers of the Army of Northern Virginia. Not only do they fly a flag with no context, but the flag they fly violates any sort of historical context.

After all, it’s not history, but heritage, with these folks, and we know that it’s a heritage of hate, judging from the bitterness spewed by their spokespeople and supporters.

Your job, dear readers, should you accept it, is to --

(1) advise who should get to decide when flying a flag "errs" and what the criteria  for their decision should be; and what qualifications they should have to make such decisions for anyone but themselves.

(2) Identify spokespeople for the Virginia Flaggers.

(3) Identify any instances of hate and bitterness "spewed" by them at the VaFlaggers blog, Facebook group, or other venues. (Provide links.)

Personally, I think the Virginia Flaggers are doing a great job of keeping the Confederate battle flag visible, and people who are upset about it are those who wish to remove Confederate flags from public view and hide them in a basement somewhere, if not actually destroy them. This certainly includes the people who mouth off about "context".

The flippin' context for the Virginia Flaggers memorial flags is that they are Confederate battle flags flying in a Confederate state where battles were fought, for the purpose of commemorating the Confederate soldiers who fought those battles. How hard is that to comprehend?

Discuss.

What Goes Around, Comes Around

We've been telling all the CBF haters and CBF removers that once you create acceptance of removing American flags, even this* one, then that one would be next. And so it is...

Burning the US flag in Ferguson
SC high school students told to remove US flag from truck bed
Apartment complex orders resident to remove US flag
Firefighters ordered to remove US flag decals from helmets (This has since been reversed)
College student forced to remove US flag

And this is just a very quick, tiny look at the beginning. It will get worse.

And, yes, Confederate flags are American flags. See? Fill in the blank:

 The Confederate States of _________

I'll give you a hint. It starts with A and ends with a and it ain't Antarctica.

And Now for Something Completely Different

There's been precious little rock music I've cared anything about since the late 1980s. But here are a couple I actually like. The video absolutely sucks, and the lyrics are awful, but I like the music.
 



Right Here, Right Now was released in 1999. How You Like Me Now was released in 2009. Perhaps another rock tune will be released in 2019 that I'll like...

Corey In Drag

So David Tatum posts some images of his new ribbons on his blog, and gets a comment from Corey:


It's hard to read at this size, so here's a close up:


If it's still too small to read, it sez, "Not new nor improved. Did you check all your spelling this time professor?"

Dave also made a post about the ribbons at Dixie Outfitters on Facebook, and got a similar comment from one LeAnne Crabtree:
Interesting thing about LeAnne Crabtree. She's a member of George/Corey's Trashing Confederate Flags Facebook group. Her profile page shows some longstanding Corey fake-profile hallmarks. New to Facebook, few friends, little activity...
Another interesting thing about "LeAnne" -- she shows up in a Google image search...  Boy, does she!
Google Image Search

Scroll down past the "Visually Similar Images" and see all the web pages where "LeAnne" shows up!

Soooo, Ms. "LeAnne" joins a whole host of fake profiles Corey has fabricated (Victor Hatcher, Max Webber, Finster Henhawk, and many more). This is the first time I'm aware of that he created a female profile, however. Which leads us to wonder, has Corey developed gender issues? Or does he just enjoy going around in cyber-drag?
This is an example of the ethically challenged person who trashes Southern heritage and who hates and harasses heritage folks like the Virginia Flaggers.  A brother (sister?) in arms with a history professor who writes fraudulent book reviews at Amazon.com (click "Wish List" at bottom right to see who "One Skeptical Observer" really is) and who also hates and harasses the Virginia Flaggers. Big cyber-friends with Kristen "Wonder Woman" Konate who accused two Virginia Flaggers of putting her address online, when she was the one who did that.

Also friends with "Hecate Crowley" or "Crowley Hecate," aka Liberty Lamp(rey), who threatened the VaFlaggers ("Well, they should be scared of us, we win at this game, always have and always will. We would like to help put a stop to this flag going up, but we need a little assistance")and whose Twitter feed revealed a disturbing death fetish (Kill Whitey!). Corey/LeAnne has some bizarre cyber-friends ... not to mention weird alternate personalities....

Harping and Carping from the Texas Coast

Andy Hall is carping, broken-record-like, about Confederate veterans and the KKK again. His point is that if any Confederate veterans embraced the KKK, any and all who honors the Confederacy today should, too -- and in fact, they probably do, but don't trumpet it, since it got politically incorrect to do so ... but now and then, it slips out...

This is Andy's latest salvo against Southern heritage folks, this time Robert Mestas of Defending the Heritage. Andy was the one, you may remember, who called Robert's son "friggin' Opie" for his appearance on a Defending the Heritage video.  http://cwmemory.com/2011/04/05/the-next-generation/

You may further recall that Andy was all affronted by heritage folks who referred to a location in 1960s television series in their praise of the South, specifically, Mayberry, of The Andy Griffith Show fame. Sed Andy, "There’s one well-known Southron heritage site that, when the author wants to refer to traditional, rural Southern virtues, also mentions Mayberry — a fictional town that only existed on a Hollywood backlot, whose law enforcement officers never dealt with really serious violent crime, and where African Americans were almost invisible."

He never did explain why that was objectionable, but it was okay for Kevin Levin to huff and puff against heritage folks on the basis of a fictional 60s TV drama, The Rebel -- Johnny Yuma.

 Levin's tripe is here: Johnny Yuma’s Appomattox  http://cwmemory.com/2011/04/09/johnny-yumas-appomattox/

You can read my thoughts on Ludicrous Levin's praise of the fictional Yuma here: THIS is the spirit of reconcliation? http://mybacksass.blogspot.com/2011/04/this-is-spirit-of-reconciliation-lol.html

So now Andy is bellyaching because Robert's short caption identifying a Confederate veteran doesn't include the information about the man's KKK involvement. Then sez Andy, "I don’t know why I should expect better from Robert. After all, he has a habit of making up fake quotes from Confederate veterans, right?"Andy has a link embedded in that comment that takes the reader to this image from Facebook:

And in the Facebook thread following this image, there is this note from Robert:

I wrote the words myself as if they had been spoken by the man pointing his hand out to the future...
I suppose none of Andy's commenters notice that one instance of something does not establish a habit. But it's classic Hallism to take comments, claims, activities of one or a few heritage folks and palm them off as far more than they are, usually representative of all Southern heritage.

It's simply jaw-dropping that someone who strives so assiduously to palm himself off as a scholarly history writer seems ignorant of the concept of poetic license. (See Ed Baptist's new "history" book on slavery for breathtaking examples of poetic license.)
License or liberty taken by a poet, prose writer, or other artist in deviating from rule, conventional form, logic, or fact, in order to produce a desired effect.  (Dictionary.com)
Anyone with a grain of sense knows, or can figure out, that Robert's quote is poetic license, created from the present situation that Confederate heritage finds itself in (though Patrick Cleburne said something similar during the war).

Andy makes himself look nastier and more mean-spirited as time goes by.

If This Is True...

There. Are. No. Words....  Story HERE AT Jihad Watch.

Baseball and ... the Civil War?

Excerpt from Dumb Jock: The Alex Austin Story. The set up: Kate Simmons has had a crush on Pensacola Mullets catcher Alex Austin since the first of the season. When she meets him at a team charity event, and he invites her to eat with him, it's like a dream come true...  (Alex, btw, is a sweet Southern boy.)

========


They carried their heavily laden plates and tall cups of iced tea to a vacant table at the edge of the crowd. There was no room on their plates for bread, and Alex volunteered to return for rolls.

"Be right back," he told her.

Considering that being near him, seeing him up close and conversing with him kept her stomach madly quivering, it was amazing to Kate that she could eat a bite. And yet her appetite had ratcheted up throughout the evening, and now hunger was gnawing at her.

He brought back a plate heaped with dinner rolls, breadsticks, buttered slices of French bread, and saltines to accompany their salads.  

"I also took a chance on bringing dessert. Do you like white chocolate macadamia nut cookies?"

She smiled, delighted. "My favorite!"

"Mine too." He returned her smile and took a bite of seafood salad, giving a barely audible moan of pleasure. "Good stuff. So, Kate, are you from Pensacola?"

"I'm from Gadsden, Alabama. I moved here about a year ago. "

"Gadsden. Home of Emma Sansom," he murmured. "A Confederate heroine. Fifteen years old, showed General Forrest where to ford a creek and engage Union troops that were on the way to cut off the Confederate railroad at Chattanooga."

"Yes. There's a monument to her in Gadsden. And a school named after her."

He nodded. "I've seen the monument."

Kate's brows rose with mild curiosity. "Are you a civil war buff?"

"In a manner of speaking. I'm a student and admirer of the Confederacy."

"I guess I don't automatically associate the War Between the States and baseball."

"Well, there is a connection." He gave her a wink. "Ken Burns made snarky documentaries about both of them."
