I like Nikki Haley, the Governor of South Carolina, or at least I used to like Nikki Haley, but what she did this past week with the Confederate Flag was DISGRACEFUL, and downright anti-American.
I also think that all the politicians; especially Republicans who support the ABOLITION of the STARS AND BARS are at best FOOLS . . . and at worst political sell-outs.
DISGRACEFUL DOESN’T BEGIN TO DESCRIBE IT:
I am a Canadian, who like most Canadians was raised to be a Liberal. But, along the road to maturity, I discovered that there was something very wrong with the mindset and honesty of the LEFT, so I invested a great deal of my time studying and learning the differences between the RIGHT AND THE LEFT.
AND NOWHERE WERE THE DIFFERENCES BETTER ILLUSTRATED THAN THE US CIVIL WAR:
It’s easy to look at America between 1861 and 1865, and declare that the Civil War, that claimed more than 600,000-Lives, was fought to end Slavery. Because that’s what the LEFT wants everyone to believe.
BUT THAT’S JUST NOT TRUE:
Slavery was a vile industry practiced in some Southern States, but also practiced and benefitted by many Northern Hypocrites. And for those who believe that Abraham Lincoln’s number-one calling was to FREE the Slaves . . . IT WASN’T.
LINCOLN’S NUMBER-ONE INTEREST WAS KEEPING THE COUNTRY UNITED:
It’s real easy for LEFTIST Conservative-Haters, going back some 150-years since the Civil War, to paint the entire South as bloodthirsty SLAVERS . . . where in fact, very few Southerners owned Slaves or profited from Slave Labor.
But that never stopped the Northern LEFT from slamming the ENTIRE South, for the actions of a few. And with LEFTIST Hollywood marching in lockstep . . . with a plethora of blockbuster movies that portrayed the South as a backward appendage of America, full of incest, racism and ignorance . . . the propaganda was in full assault.
THE SOUTH HAD NO LOCK ON RACISM:
The Slaves were FREED with Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation . . . but it seems that no one told the North, where racism ran wild, denying the so-called FREED Slaves any kind of real FREEDOM and opportunities.
And even today in Northern Liberal States . . . Blacks are still getting SLAMMED in their own communities by their own people.
Black unemployment is through the roof. Black school dropouts outnumber the people who actually graduate. Black teen-pregnancies with delinquent fathers is epidemic. And Black-On-Black MURDERS is akin to a war zone, WITH MOST OF THIS BEING IN THE “LIBERATED” NORTH.
WHY THE LEFT HAVE SUCH A HATRED FOR THE CONFEDERATE FLAG:
The Civil War had little to do with Slavery, nearly as much as it had to do with STATES’ RIGHTS, where the North did whatever it could to usurp the rights of the South, trying to force themselves and their values onto a mostly agrarian society with core beliefs that ran CONTRARY to the North.
THE CONFEDERATE FLAG REPRESENTS PATRIOTIC AMERICAN VALUES:
Just because haters of Conservative-Values, including the MEDIA have declared that the Confederate Flag is RACIST . . . DOES NOT MAKE IT TRUE. Yet, that has become the accepted narrative throughout the LEFTIST side of the USA.
BUT WE SHOULD NEVER PLAY THAT GAME:
If the LEFT really wants to divide the USA, and start a Second Civil War, this might be the 21st Century’s version of FORT SUMTER, rubbing Southern History into the dirt and stomping on it . . . and from what I know of Southerners, especially TEXANS, the desecration of the Confederate Flag will not stand.
TO THE SOUTH . . . THE CONFEDERATE FLAG REPRESENTS FREEDOM AND INDEPENDENCE:
Rush Limbaugh said that this is a slippery slope . . . “Today the Confederate Flag, tomorrow the Stars and Stripes”, which many pundits laughed at.
THAT SAID – they really shouldn’t be laughing.
How many times have we heard, read, or have seen on television how the Stars and Stripes have come under attack on American soil, where communities, condos, etc, have filed charges against people who raised the Stars and Stripes at their own homes? ESPECIALLY VETERANS?
How many times have we seen on the news, where LEFTIST Americans have stepped all over the Stars and Stripes to make their sick point?
Rush Limbaugh doesn’t have to be proven right . . . current history has already decided in his favor.
SPECIAL NOTE . . . On Thursday, June 25, 2015, the Supreme Court has proven that it does not answer to the people, and cares NOTHING for the guarantees of the Constitution, or the lawful position of the People’s House in Congress.
The people will not accept a government that is in Abraham Lincoln’s own words, delivered on November 19, 1863 at the site of the Battle of Gettysburg . . . that is NOT: “of the people, by the people, and for the people”.
FREE PEOPLE will at one point rise-up, not to be governed by fiat, by an unelected and unassailable ruling class, answerable to no one but themselves, guaranteed their privilege of authority for their entire lives, even if the Congress surrenders their status as the ELECTED representatives of the people.
HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF . . . REMEMBER FORT SUMTER – APRIL 12-14, 1861.
