Why are young people outraged by statutes of Confederate soldiers?

The Civil War ended well over over 150 years ago.

Why now?

Is there nothing else for them to protest against?

Well as it turns out, there’s plenty to protest about that is far more important than Confederate statues.

They could begin by protesting Nike shoes and other US corporations for exploiting the various peoples in Southeast Asia and Central America.

They could protest manufacturing firms that outsource labor to Third World countries.

Why don’t they?

First, they would have to know about this exploitation.

If the mainstream media doesn’t cover it, they probably don’t know about it.

Second, they would have to be told to protest this exploitation.

Sadly, most people are followers.

In light of not knowing anything about these issues, and not being told to protest about them, young people fill in the rage gap with what they do know and what is commanded of them.

Thus statues of Confederate soldiers.

The elites love Confederate soldiers.

The Confederacy sells.

Bull Connor sells.

Racism sells.

Race hustling works for the elites.

Race hustling is easy, cheap and prevalent.

Racism cloaks the mind in confusion and prevents you from thinking rationally.

Most importantly, it diverts attention from important issues.

Why aren’t young people protesting our government’s instigation of the civil war in Syria?  400,000 people have died.  Millions fled as refugees.  Oops, wrong civil war.

Why aren’t young people protesting the treatment of Palestinians by Israel?  Millions live under oppression every single day.

Why aren’t young people protesting the carnage in Yemen?  Thousands upon thousands have been wiped off the planet by our ally, Saudi Arabia.

Why aren’t they protesting?  Because they don’t know about it.

Because they’re led somewhere else.

They’re in a land 150 years away into the past, safely away from the issues of today.

They’re in antebellum America!

That’s great for the New World Order.

They are now free to operate.

911 truth anyone?

What?  Who’s got time for that?

Stephen F. Austin owned slaves 200 years ago.  

It’s an outrage.

The Smear

Well, I’ve talked about the Confederacy before. It’s probably time to talk about it again given that CNN and the liberals are using it to smear Cindy Hyde-Smith.

Hyde-Smith is running in a special election for Thad Cochrane’s Senate seat in Mississippi.

First, the Civil War was not a war to free the slaves. You can slog through my prior posts to see why.

Now, of course, the liberals, true to form, want it to be that way, but wanting does not make it so.

The Civil War was about economics. Saying that the war was about slavery gives far too much credit to the bankers and industrialists who must finance a war. These guys do not go to war for social justice.

The social justice narrative is constructed to loan nobility to the elites who begin these wars.

Now, once the war was begun, slavery was used as a weapon against the South. But hold on, let us not think that the North really cared about black folk. They didn’t.

They still don’t.

What the North cared about beside winning the war was all that cheap black labor that would be freed up by abolishing slavery. Oh yeah, baby; they were licking their chops at all that cheap black labor that they could use in their factories. Plus, they could use that labor as scabs to break up emerging unions.

What they wanted to do was replace official slavery with a new kind of slavery.

Oh, and as for Jim Crow, Jim Crow laws existed in the North as well. Don’t think for one second that white people in the North were any more pure than their white cousins in the South.

Now, if Jim Crow was so repulsive to the North after reconstruction, why didn’t the North wage war again?

Aha, because the North got what it wanted the first time around. The Civil War was always about economics. When the South seceded it was free to trade cotton for finished goods from England which could compete with the finished goods being manufactured in the North.

That’s why the North declared war against the South. If the South had never seceded we’d have slavery today.

It’s always about the money for these elites. They simply don’t give a flip about social justice.

Which brings us to Cindy Hyde-Smith and this bogus smear about the Confederacy.

CNN doesn’t give a damn about slavery, the Confederacy or black folk. What they care about is selecting for you the candidate their corporate puppet-masters approve of.

If their liberal candidate had embraced a Civil War general you’d hear nary a peep about it.

These issues exist to move the citizenry to elect those candidates who the elites desire. Typically their candidates favor a corporate agenda. Big surprise.

Yes, we live in a shamocracy that has all the trappings of legitimacy.

Now, that’s dangerous.

Somehow, I think the Founding Fathers sensed that this might happen which is why they wanted your Senators elected by your state legislature.

This indirect method was actually better representation for you, but all that got changed with the 17th Amendment.

Which is why the 17th Amendment must be repealed.

Your country depends upon it.

Robert E. Lee

The other day, Trump praised Robert E. Lee, and the media went nuts.

So …

Yes.

Do they wax giddy over emotional hot-button “moments”?

Yes.

Did Robert E. Lee fight to promote slavery?

No.

Did he fight for the South because his country, Virginia, asked him to fight and to not do so would be considered treasonous?

Yes.

Did Abraham Lincoln believe that the North should continue to hold malice toward the South?

No.

Does acknowledging Robert E. Lee’s greatness as a general in way promote slavery or racism?

No.

Do the goofballs in Palo Alto and their buddies in the media and the left think that acknowledging Robert E. Lee’s greatness as a general in any way promotes slavery or racism?

Yes.

Is this one of the reasons why Democrats can’t win an election?

Yes.

Would it behoove Democrats to get back on the planet?

Yes.

Would it behoove us to control the amount of money that poorly educated Palo Alto schmucks can make?

Yes.

Will poorly educated Palo Alto schmucks attempt to ban books on the Civil War written by authors such as  Shelby Foote because they praise Southern Civil War generals?

Yes.

Does Robert E. Lee’s descendant have any special credibility in denouncing Robert E. Lee?

No.

Does the media think he does?

Yes.

Does the media think you are so stupid as to think he does?

Yes.

Is the media therefore unqualified to report news to you?

Yes.

Confederate Statues

The young are obsessed with Confederate statues.

They rage about slavery that took place over 150 years ago yet rage little about their own slavery today. Yes, they are slaves to the activists and social justice warriors who manipulate them into the cattle pens of frivolity and serfdom.

What they should be protesting against are the gradual usurpation of their individual freedoms through false wars physical and abstract against the false enemies – China, Iran, Russia, global warming, hate speech, Stonewall Jackson – that the powers that be choose to create that day.

__

In the antebellum South, states were regarded more as countries rather than states being part of a union.  Virginia was regarded as a homeland of sorts.  When Generals such as Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson fought for the South, they did so for their homeland, not for slavery.  To not do so would be considered an act of treason.
