The Confederate flag that flew over a war memorial on South Carolina’s state capitol grounds was taken down today. Thousands of people were bused in to celebrate what? What did taking down this flag ultimately gain besides making politicians and the PC crowd feel good about themselves?
This day is a celebration in hubris. Progressives ballyhooed the accomplishment of an ultimate goal and that was to display mastery over a people’s past and heritage, and they rubbed our noses in it. What made it worse was to have a so-called conservative governor and legislature do their dirty work. Would it be appropriate to call these politicians, carpetbaggers and scalawags?
Southerners were warned what would happen to a conquered people. Major General Patrick Cleburne’s prophetic words ring true to this day.
Every man should endeavor to understand the meaning of subjugation before it is too late. We can give but a faint idea when we say it means the loss of all we now hold most sacred — slaves and all other personal property, lands, homesteads, liberty, justice, safety, pride, manhood. It means that the history of this heroic struggle will be written by the enemy; that our youth will be trained by Northern school teachers; will learn from Northern school books their version of the war; will be impressed by all the influences of history and education to regard our gallant dead as traitors, our maimed veterans as fit objects for derision. It means the crushing of Southern manhood, the hatred of our former slaves, who will, on a spy system, be our secret police. The conqueror's policy is to divide the conquered into factions and stir up animosity among them, and in training an army of negroes the North no doubt holds this thought in perspective.
Progressives have endeavored to obliterate Southern pride by rewritting their history. The Confederate flag just happens to be the latest casualty in a long train of abuses.
Progressives kind of remind me of ISIS: both subscribe to a totalitarian ideology that destroys anyone or anything that stands in its way. That means obliterating a people’s culture, history and religious institutions that don’t comport with their perverted sense of superiority. Take a look in a mirror, America.
