Anyone who knows the need for a rule of law has been ill watching how Hillary Clinton has been able to establish herself as being above the law. The FBI reiterated the numerous points where she lied to both them and to Congress all without saying she broke the law. Then the FBI gives her a pass by simply saying how she is just incompetent in handling sensitive information. The baffling thing is how this woman still is running for the office of President who will be in charge of all sensitive matters. The use of the Clinton Foundation as a political pay for play arena has been proven beyond any reasonable contention. Her incompetents in handling Benghazi were clearly the reason for the deaths of Americans. Even the swirling rumors surrounding the mysterious recent deaths of people surrounding her email fiasco yet no real investigation will ever be done just like no real investigation was ever done in the death of Vince Foster or the multitudes of people killed or accidentally found dead along the wake of the lives of both Bill and Hillary Clinton. Yet she still remains as the media choice for President. This should make every American question both the media and the system. Even the primaries where emails proved how the DNC rigged the elections in favor of Clinton against Sanders, still she stands above the law.
This election is not about who will be the next President. This election is whether there will be an America for the next President. Hillary has vowed to bring hundreds of thousands of ‘refugees’ into this country from countries known for terrorism. It is impossible to vet those numbers leaving America not having immigrants but rather an invasion. Hillary as made it clear that her agenda will be to disarm the civilian populous. She does not believe that citizens have the right to bear arms. It is clear that terrorist in this country and elsewhere have no problems getting weapons meaning that she is going to leave the law abiding people defenseless. I do not promote violence in this nation. I simply write what many people think. America is running out of time and it is time to be blunt. If Hillary Clinton gets elected President, America will face its second revolution. Hillary Clinton will continue Obama’s policy which has driven race relations back 50 years and a wedge between both classes and races to a powder keg level. If Hillary is elected America will cease to exist as it has been known. I regret to state that all reasonable conclusions are that if Hillary is elected that there will be civil war. I do not want that in my country. I am not promoting that in my country. I simply say what I see happening in my country. We are almost there already. Personally I believe that if it was not for the election being so close that there probably would be more push back against present policies already. The America people see election as a sacred trust. Yet the DNC and Hillary Clinton have already violated that trust by what has been revealed they have done with the primaries.
Under Obama voter fraud has been proven. It is a numeric impossibility for there to be precincts where not one vote was cast for the opposition. Yet this last election with Obama this happened in numerous precincts. People have testified as to how they were approached to create software used to corrupt voting machines. The DNC has taken the last sacred rites of being an American and have thrown on the trash heap. Now in this new election two of the major companies which make and operate the voting machines are large Clinton donors. There has been corruption in the election; there will continue to be corruption in the election. If the DNS insists on make our election process equal to those of third world countries then they should not be surprised when the citizenry responds to corrupt elections like they do in third world countries. You cannot have total corruption in the top leadership and not have violence in response by those under those corrupt officials. I believe the DNC used to express the concerns of average people. That is no longer the truth. The DNC has been hijacked by those who have only a goal of total overthrow of the American system and way of life. The DNC has established itself as being above the law as has been proven by the lack of any consequence of previous actions in the rigged primaries and the multitude of ‘investigations’ or lack thereof into the actions of the Clintons over the years and recent decade.
Our world is already experiencing global conflict. This means that while our leadership refused to admit it that we are experiencing the early days of World War III. The world is at war with radical Islam in numerous countries around the globe. Our present leadership is infiltrated with members of radical Islam or are Islamic sympathizers. Hillary with her close ties to radical Islam would not fight Islam and simply capitulate as Islam continues to infest all aspects of our nation. This would leave the average American who refuses to live under Islamic rule with no other option but armed response. It would be a fight or die situation. This is the reality of this election.
It is an insult to any thinking American when the media tries to make news over who might be changing their opinion on this or that topic. The media is an insult to journalism as they try to make news out of which radically inclined multi-million dollar contract sports person makes some stupid protest over what he sees an unjust as he is laughing all the way to the bank. The media is missing that this election is a referendum over the future of our nation and even to the extent as to whether or not there will be a nation. There will be a land mass. There will be something loosely referred to as a nation. But there will not be a United States of America.
What would be the proper response? Imagine the year was 1939 and there were pockets of people in the United States who swore allegiance to the philosophies found in Mein Kampf. Would it be more proper to allow them to stay in America? Would it be more proper to establish a round table to set down with these people and try to understand their beliefs better? Would it be more proper to force them to leave the country? Would it be more proper to keep them and all their associates under watch? Would it be more proper to worry about not violating their particular rights? People need to stop lying to themselves and this nation. AMERICA IS AT WAR! Our leaders are too spineless to admit this reality. It is important that we admit this reality otherwise what is the response. Right now liberals are so worried about protecting the ‘rights’ of those who have declared war against America and Americans. These same people have declared war not only against America but against the world. Innocent people are being slaughtered by countless numbers. It is infuriating that some people proclaim that these people have a right to be protected because of their ‘freedom of religion’. We need to get one thing straight. When these people start slaughtering innocent people in the name of their religion they lose ALL rights associated with freedom of religion. It is no longer a religion and is a bloodthirsty cult. There are no freedoms of religion for radical Islamic terrorists. When a mosque starts hiding weapons for terrorists and becomes the nucleus for terrorist cells it loses all rights and liberties associated with freedom of religion.
The liberal left can ignore and deny the reality of this new world war all they desire but it will not change the reality that it exists. The only way to stop a world war is to attack it with full force. Our national leaders are guilty of treason and are siding with the enemies of the people. There is a perfect opportunity for the world to come together against a common foe. Russia has openly attacked and vowed to destroy ISIS and all its elements. Other nations have openly attacked and are seeking the utter destruction of ISIS. America is the only power country that seems to be playing finger games during this time of global threat. There is no doubt that our President is either Muslim or a strong Muslim sympathizer. It is the radical Muslims who are attacking the world. What would be the proper response if during the late 30’s if our President was either a Nazi or a Nazi sympathizer? Our nation must wake up to the fact that this administration is not American or pro-America. This administration is pro-Muslim and wants America to be an Islamic nation. They will allow any and all crisis to occur in this country in order to promote their agenda. They seem to want America to come to a state of crisis where martial law and UN ‘peacekeepers’ are our law enforcement. I am amazed at the total stupidity of the Attorney General and Vice President promoting a national police force. It worked so well for Adolf Hitler. Are we so stupid in leadership that we have forgotten everything about history? It is so arrogant to think that those in power can simply ignore facts of history that does not fit their agenda. They do not like the facts that the Confederacy was NOT all a racist bunch or nut-bags killing every black man they encountered. In many ways the leadership of the South was more aware and compassionate of the needs of the black man than many of those in leadership of the North. This is simple historical fact. The leadership of this nation wants to ignore that a nation prospers when people are allowed to work without so many regulations. They want to ignore the facts that our nation did well during a people where the people was allowed to keep their wages and not have to spend nearly 30% in taxes. They want to ignore that fact that people want criminals to be held accountable. They want to ignore the fact that if you pay people to riot and destroy communities that it is a criminal offense such as what George Soros appears to have done with Ferguson. They want to ignore the fact that people who are attacking innocent citizens simply because they are attending a political rally which is contrary to what they promote are doing nothing less that was done by the ‘brown shirts’ during the days of Nazi Germany. Our leadership is killing America.
I am glad when people speak out against the terrorists and actually use common sense wording. Political correctness will never solve anything. Sitting down over tea and cookies will never resolve terrorism. Killing the enemy will at least reduce their numbers enough that there will not be the numbers of terrorists. If the terrorists are afraid to die then they will not be so bold in killing scores of innocent people. You might not be able to wipe out all terrorists or terrorism but you can reduce their numbers enough that it will cut into their recruiting. If there are more terrorists leaving in body bags then are marching in then the numbers will reduce. But with our Muslim sympathizing leadership America will never have a strong offense against Islamic terrorism.
I think the America people themselves are getting sick and tired of the whiny, milk-toast approach of our so called elected leaders where Islamic terrorists are concerned. I think the American people are about ready to take matters into their own hands. If Islamic terrorists want to attack our homeland I think most Americans are ready to shoot back. I think most Americans are about ready to tell our elected leaders who are too cowardly or treasonous to stand up against Islamic terrorists to go, (I am really trying to find the proper “G” rated terms to use here), jump off a cliff. Maybe this is part of Obama’s plan. I have come to believe that he has no positive goal for America and is nothing more than a narcissist nut bag who thinks that he is God’s gift to humanity. He promotes the Black Lives Matter groups while attending a memorial for slaughtered police officers. As long as Black Lives Matters groups promote the stoppage of freeways keeping emergency vehicles from getting to emergency rooms and fires they are nothing more than domestic terrorists. As long as they chant death to the police, they are nothing more than domestic terrorists. As long as they encourage harm they are nothing more than domestic terrorists. And, as long as Obama meets with these people and keeps them in his inner circle he is nothing more than a terrorist sympathizer. The new Black Panther movement is no different than the old Black Panther movement. These people are nothing more than radicals who think that the world owes them a living and that they should be allowed to have their way. These idiots love to think they are all big and bad but have no idea of what is about to fall upon them if they keep up their stupidity.
People are fed up! I cannot begin to understand why anyone in their right minds would vote for Hillary Clinton in that she is part of the same group that has created this problem. I do not care if Donald Duck was on the other ticket; it is beyond asinine to vote for the same group that has brought America to the brink of civil war. Hillary Clinton was bragging about how she established ‘communication’ with the different groups. That is a big part of the problem. The liberal left wants to think that you can sit down over tea and crumpets and chat with the terrorists. She has even made the stupid statement as to how we need to understand them more. All I understand is that if someone wants to murder me or my loved ones that I will shoot back. Personally, I think anyone who supports Hillary Clinton needs a reality check.
I personally believe that our leadership does not ignore nor even deny the reality of Islamic terrorism. Personally, I believe that our administration promotes it. I do not believe our leadership will ever speak our strongly against radical Islam because our leadership is part of Islam and has strong close ties with radical Islam. Our elected leaders have betrayed us. I have looked at the enemy and behold, the enemy was us.
You say you are going to ‘dismantle organizations of hate’. Your definition of ‘organizations of hate’ based upon statements you have made previously include the Christian church because of the ‘crusades’ and their ‘vicious’ attacks against Islam. You seem to include veterans in terrorist labeling even though these people lay down their lives in fights against terrorism. You also seem to include the NRA as well as the whole Republican Party in your ‘organizations of hate’. Please allow me to be blunt since you do not seem to understand any form of subtlety. GET IT THROUGH YOUR THICK HEAD THAT THE ONLY ‘ORGANIZATION OF HATE’ THAT IS KILLING PEOPLE AROUND THE GLOBE IS ISIS AND RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISTS! You seem too dense to be able to understand that it is ISLAMIC TERRORIST and not the NRA that is bombing airports. You seem to be too dense to be able to understand that it is not the Republican Party that is shooting people up at bars and other ‘gun free zone’ gatherings. IT IS RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISTS WHO IS THE ENEMY! I have been taught to respect people and if I cannot respect the person then to respect the position. I have no respect for you Mr. President because you have perverted the office of President into your own piggy bank and seat of tyrannical power. You have no right to make the decrees you are trying to impose upon the American people and if the media was not so far up your backside they would have dug a little bit deeper into your own words and have made how dedicated you are to Islam more of an issue as well as would have done at least preliminary journalism into why you were never capable of providing a proper birth certificate. You, sir, are a fraud; a charlatan; and a phony. You are nothing more than a wolf in sheep’s clothing and the world see it. The problem is that there are still too many people in this country who are blinded because you are part black. They do not care of your character, simply of your color.
I am proud to be a member of the Sons of the American Revolution as well as the Southern Cherokee of Kentucky. The first membership means that I have traced my lineage to people who fought along side of those such as George Washington in forming this country. The second means that I have traced my lineage back to those who were on this soil long before it was ever thought of as a nation. I sit back and watch as Islam is being forced upon the free people of this land. Some of the things that the Catholic Church did in its ignorance of the Native ways of life look like a fun time at a pow wow in comparison to the blood lust of Islam against people who do not believe and they dictate. Our political leaders have failed us. They have abandoned their oaths of office. They have abandoned their promises to their people for the sake of money and power of political office. Americans of ALL RACE, COLORS, AND CREEDS must unit. It is time for militiaman and hippy to find common ground in that if things do not change and Islam continues to gain ground in America that there will be no room or permitted place for either. Islam will demand full obedience to Sharia Law which removes our Constitutional rights and liberties. Democrat, Republican and Independent better get their heads out of the sand, or wherever they have it placed, and see the future. Look at the other Islamic countries and see if that is what you want as your status quo. It only takes a brief look at France, Belgium, Sweden and Germany to realize that the refugee influx is not about people fleeing the ravages of war but a camouflaged invasion of Islamic warriors.
I have never promoted violence in any of my writings. But I am a realist and can see that violence is coming because it is being thrusted upon us. Our nation is at stake. Our liberties are being threatened. This administration refuses to even acknowledge that radical Islam is the global problem. With that in mind they are bound to open wide the doors of America with no regard of the effects. I hate to admit it but I would have to have my head so far into the sand as the left wing liberals no not see that all indicators scream that this is the plan of Obama and his administration. I would have to close my eyes to too much not to be willing to say that I must draw no other conclusion but that this administration wants civil war on our soil. This administration is determined to make America into an Islamic nation regardless of the human cost. I want to be wrong. I want someone to be able to step up and give me a reasonable, rational and logical explanation of Obama’s actions. Until such time I am left with my conclusions that America is being sold out and unless something major changes real soon that there will be blood on the horizon.
I would not say that Orlando was the ‘shot heard around the world’ but it was definitely the shot heard around the nation. People and things are becoming clearer. As Ryan tried to have a moment of silence for those lost in the terrorist rampage certain Democrats walked out of the room. After the moment of silence Democrats disrupted the order of Congress demanding their votes. I do not remember that ever happening when Harry Reid was majority leader of the Senate and not one Republican bill was sent to the floor. The masks are coming off. If there are any good politicians still in the Democrat party I would recommend that you leave that party or be prepared to be painted with the same brush. The Democrat party of today is not the party of old. The Democrat party of today is a mask for socialism and the goal of a quasi-communistic rule of America. It represents a destruction of the US Constitution as an ‘outdated’ document and a removal of the American way of life for a more ‘socially appropriate’ lifestyle which will not offend anyone. Do not doubt their primary goal is to disarm Americans because our owning and carrying firearms are considered ‘offensive’ to many and mainly to those who would prefer to see us all dead. Our freedoms are considered offensive to Islam because we drink alcohol if we desire, we eat pork and are not bothered when our women wear bikinis. We like seeing the beauty in the female form and do not want them covered in a potato sack.
Do not be surprised as the final push of the Obama administration to remove the American way of life goes full nova. Obama has stacked the Supreme Court with people who opposed the Constitution as much as he does and expects them to vote in lock and step with the agenda. We will see bill after bill and executive order after executive order to remove gun rights from citizens. The total disregard for those who died in Orlando and the complete manipulation of the situation for political has been made clear. The present Democrat party has no regard for people but merely an agenda. People like Feinstein is a disgrace who vowed to protect this country and now an active opponent against this country and its way of life. If anyone in Congress has forgotten their oath they vowed to protect and serve the people and to support the Constitution. But they now disregard the Constitution and view the people as their subjects.
It should not be a surprise that Obama cannot utter the words ‘radical Islamic terrorists’. It is against the koran for one Muslim to speak ill of another Muslim. Let us get past all the political dog poop. Obama was raised Muslim, was registered in school as a Muslim, supports Islam, protects Islam, has defended Islam in front of the United Nations and has made the statement that if the political winds turn against Islam that he would support Islam. He has made the historically incorrect statement as how ‘Muslims have built the very fiber of this nation’ when in reality Islam had attacked this country for decades. Since 1783 Islam has been attacking America, American people, taking thousands of slaves, and killing innocent people. There should be no question that Obama is a Muslim. Any first year detective would come up with the same conclusion giving the visible and historical evidence. Obama has an agenda that is the bread and butter of the Democrat party. They do not care if they spark the next American Revolution as long as they support their leader’s agenda. Let us get one thing straight. Your leader is NOT supporting America, the American way of life, American history, nor even knows anything about American history. Your leader is a sham, a coward, and ignorant puppet who simply sees the people as a piggy bank to be used and abused. He has no regard for America, Christianity, or the American way of life. He knows about as much about the US Constitution as some peasant on the streets of some Muslim country who still considers a plateful of bugs as a delicatessen.
If you do not have a good rifle used for not only self-defense but also national defense the time is now to get one. Keep it as quiet as possible because it will be a dangerous commodity. Do not be surprised at the insanity which is coming done the road lead by Obama and the Democrats. Do not under estimate this nitwit’s agenda, his desire to use every means possible legal and illegal, Constitutional and unconstitutional to mean his agenda and goals. Stay vigilant and do not believe everything you see. The media is staying that the Muslim caught with the bomb material in California heading to the gay pride parade and the Muslim who held the hostages at the Texas Walmart are not all connected with the terrorists of Orlando. Personally I think there is a better chance of winning the Power Ball Lottery than these not being connected. We are not under attack by ‘lone wolf’ terrorists especially when they all vow allegiance to the same group of nut-jobs. These people are here in America. The Democrats are determined to bring in more into this country under the guise of refugees. Do not be surprised as these things increase. As in Europe women will be under attack. If your sweetie does not carry encourage her to do so. The best way to deter rapists is to make sure that he never is able to rape another person.
I am not a man of doom and gloom. But I am a realist. I believe in being prepared. I would rather be prepared and never need what I have than to need it and not have any means to protect myself, my family or my country. Make no mistake no be deceived. The present Democrat party is not a party in favor of America or the American way of life. Islam is not a peaceful religion who simply wants to exist. I still hold that there might be some within Islam who, in spite of what their religion teaches deep in the koran, simply wants to be left alone in peace. But do not be deceived that the masses of Islam are here peacefully. Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country. That is more than a typing exercise. It is a mandate. If you have….carry. If you do not have….then get something that you can legally carry. If you are not trained….get training. If you do not have a permit….get one. Do not be surprised. It was the armed citizen that deterred Japan from a frontal assault against this nation during World War II. It is up to the armed citizen to keep defending it in spite as to what the Democrats want to say about the right of the citizen to do so. Anyone who speaks out against the right to defend one’s self, one’s family, or one’s country must be considered as a traitor to America and the American way of life. In the words of George Washington: The only language state sponsors of Islamic terrorism understands is force.
As the election comes closer and a real threat to the continued policies of Obama and his administration look like they might be overturned, there are some things that I can easily see happening within the next few months.
Obama will try via executive order to create a ‘fast track’ or even so much as an immediate path to citizenship. Once the new refugees and ‘immigrants’ are legal citizens then he would be able to stuff the ballot box with votes from people he would have been able to get into the voting booth.
Obama will try via executive order to do everything to finalize his goal of gun confiscation and extreme gun restriction. There have been some trial balloons set up already regarding attempts for confiscation using the Department of Veteran Affairs and State governments.
Obama will try to find a reason to enact a state of national emergency with the goal of delaying the election. The path has already been set through executive orders signed by Bill Clinton permitting the UN to be used on US soil in the case of a national emergency or crisis.
Obama needs his thousands of refugees in this country to aid in creating the national crisis much like they have done in Europe.
Do not be surprised as the radicals unit in anarchy. They are being paid by key people of the left and have been proven. They have admitted and bragged about being paid to riot and protest. These are going to be Obama’s army to create chaos in America.
Somethings that our Congress needs to keep in mind is that the general public and the silent majority are no longer silent. We the people have just made it extremely clear that they want Donald Trump as the next Republican nominee. There has never been such a landslide for any candidate and especially for one who was not a sitting politician. Congress needs to wise up because if they try to permit Obama to pull his fast tricks during his remaining time in office then those politicians will be removed and unemployed. The people are sick and tired of being played as fools. We are awake and we are pissed! Congress will never be able to stick the Genie back into the bottle.
Obama and his crew are going to fight for ever inch they believe they can still gain over these next few months. Do not expect it to end after the election. I do not trust Obama. He has proven himself, in my humble personal opinion, to be nuttier than bat crap! Do not be surprised if after the election, and if Trump wins, that there is some national emergency that Obama tries to use to stay in power.Keep in mind that ‘power’ is the key word. Obama loves power. He seems to have the idea that he is king and can rule. He wants his ideas and his agenda rather than an American agenda. This he has proven over the years. Our nation is not out of the woods by any means. Do not be surprised if over the next few months until January that the ‘doo doo does not fly into the windmill’. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
I must admit that I am basically in a state of shock. I never thought I would see the day when the things happening today would be routine. The elephant of the GOP has become like the cartoon character of a fluffy Dumbo like creature with an umbrella in one hand and a cup of tea in the other. The Democrat donkey has become nothing more than a great big jackass. Socialism is an accepted characteristic for presidential candidates. We have an administration that is not even attempting to hide the corruption of padding the ballot box with the influx of illegals. The Constitution has never been used against itself to a greater extent in history than it is presently. The right to keep and bear arms has never been under greater attack. Our elected officials have never been able to get away with making absolutely stupid statements before like they do today…(no Guam will not tip over due to the presence of the Navy). We have an administration that is openly Muslim, proud of it, and are very active in making America an Islamic nation. Government leaders are leaving the founding beliefs of this nation and have abandoned any and every reference to God because it might offend someone somewhere. We do not have leaders. We have power hungry and greedy pussies that have rejected the will of the people.
I wonder if today is something like it was during the late 1700’s. I wonder if people who watched England become increasingly more power hungry and greedy at the expense of the people sat back hoping that maybe something would change and that people would actually change and start listening to reason again. I wonder how many kept believing that the system would kick start back into a working government. I firmly believe that it is the purpose of this administration to break America and to create civil war. If there is civil war then there will be martial law and the rule of FEMA who supersedes the Constitution and personal rights. I believe it is the goal of this administration to bring so many radicals from the south, Middle East, and Europe into this country so that Obama would have his private civilian army that he has been wanting since the first day of his presidency. I firmly believe that it is the goal of this administration with the help of the Democrat party to disarm every civilian. I firmly believe that the average person does not matter to the majority of our elected officials which is why people like Trump and Carson are surging in the polls. The American people do not trust politicians and for good reason. Present day politicians see the average American as a piggy bank to be used to fund whatever they please. They travel around the globe without giving a second thought at the lives of the average American. They have life time income and complain they are still not getting enough money while they are receiving 4-5 times what the average American makes a year with an expense account that is staggering. We have people running for president who has already been caught in so many lies that the average person would be in prison. Our government needs to wise up.
There will be changes in office. I do not know if it will be before or after the election. I am hoping that there will be peaceful changes from the ballot box. But I see overt actions on the part of many in the Democrat party to corrupt the election by permitting non-Americans to vote. The number of people who have voted for the Democrat party who have been deceased, in prison, cartoon characters, and even non-existent names is amazing. People have bragged about voting numerous times in the same election. Voting machines have been caught switching votes. If there is one thing that those in the political arena better not do and that is corrupt the ballot box. It is the ballot box that is the ONLY thing which makes America different and which has keep America peaceful.
I hope that there is a new President with a brain and who will listen to the voice of the people. I hope that there is a new President who will return America to its basic Christian roots. We are not, never have been and never will be an Islamic country. I hope that there is a new President who will lead America back to a position of strength again. America, presently, is laughable in the eyes of the global governments. I want a President who is proud to be the President of the United States of America. I am so tired of a doofis who goes around bowing to everyone saying how bad America is and how it needs to change. If I had an employee who kept going around saying how bad my company was I would fire him on the spot.
There will be change. There will be a difference in the government. I just hope it is a peaceful change. But of what I see this President and his administration doing, along with the support of a complacent, power hungry and greedy Democrat party, I am having my doubts. I hope I am wrong. But what I see happening is setting America up for a big event. What I see is setting America up for a major clash between radical foreign invaders and ideologies and the classic American way of life. All I can say is that if you are not prepared you better be. Have you scoped out your area regarding food and water? Have you a means to protect yourself and your family? Have you a plan should things go bad? Have you thought about where you will go? Have you a plan to get with other family members so that you are a greater number than just yourself? Have you contemplated alliances? No, my tin foil hat is not fitting too tight. I just do not have rose colored glasses on anymore.
Believe it or not but I have been called a racist simply because I have the ‘stars and bars’ on my car and on Facebook. I find it interesting when the character of a person can be judged by a thing. Usually these self-righteous pee brains go running to the argument of the swastika. First of all I am not one to be playing around with where the swastika is concerned because I had an uncle who was in the units who liberated the camps and saw what the swastika stood for during WWII and my father was in the Pacific theater and also knew what would happen to the world if the swastika and Japanese imperialism was not defeated. There is no remote connection between the swastika and the ‘stars and bars’. A simple bit of individual research would be extremely helpful to these semi-experts who think that if they push harder on topics that they are supposed to know more than the average person. Another point that the experts forget about is that there were many Confederate flags.
Those who want to scream that anything to do with the Confederacy is racist have no concept of history and the Confederacy. There were many blacks who willingly and proudly fought under the various Confederate flags. I am of Cherokee decent and there were many Native Americans who fought under a Confederate flag. My particular tribe was originally denied federal recognition as a tribe solely because the tribal leader was a general in the Confederate army. We are still trying to get federal recognition since shortly after that denial Congress basically closed the door to tribal recognition apart from a long and drawn out process with mounts of paperwork.
A little bit of history regarding the ‘stars and bars’ would go a long way for the ‘experts’. The Confederate flag referred to as the ‘stars and bars’ goes back to the Scottish flag. This, in turn, goes back to the St. Peter’s cross because St. Peter was supposed to have been crucified upside down on an ‘X’ shaped cross. It is a symbol of courage, steadfastness, determination, and a willingness to stand or die for one’s beliefs. It has nothing to do with racism. I doubt most highly that any Jew ever willingly fought or defended the swastika but many blacks were proud to wear the Southern Gray.
It would also be nice if these experts did a little research into the Civil War. Slavery was not the primary cause of the Civil War. The North and the money people were concerned about the South seceding from the Union. The federal government was getting more and more demanding in what was expected or demanded from the States and the South valued the idea of State’s sovereignty so they left the Union as opposed to just doing as a federal government expected. With the South leaving the Union many of the money people were concerned about the sea ports which were largely located in the South. They knew that people would not want war over sea ports so they took some of the abuses of slavery which were happening in the South and amplified them to get the emotions of the people behind the idea of a now noble war. It must be kept in mind that many of these abuses did not happen. Many slaves were treated as family and did not want to leave after the Emancipation Proclamation was signed. In reality there were very little differences going on between the black slaves in the South and the child labor and immigrant labor which was going on in the North. Additionally, it might be notable to include that there were black slave owners and many black well to do business men. Being black in the South did not automatically mean you were sold and beaten.
If anyone or anything is to be blamed for the abuses done to the blacks in the south it is neither the ‘stars and bars’ nor the Confederacy which should be held responsible. It is ironic that many who are screaming racism the loudest belong to the very group that amplified the anti-black movements of the South; the Democrat party. Prior to the infiltration by various trouble seeking Democrats after the Civil War, the Klu Klux Klan actually had black members. This is a point of history that can be easily researched. After the trouble makers infiltrated the organization was when it became a domestic terrorist group. The Democrats or the ‘Dixie crates’ as they were called worked hard to keep the black from becoming an American, have the right to vote, or to have their babies seen as Americans (yes, that is where the 14th amendment comes from and not from Mexico. It is also worth noting here that many who came to America through Ellis Island and had babies were never given immediate citizenship). If anything is to be seen as a symbol of racism it is not the ‘stars and bars’ but rather that dag burn donkey!
