Don’t Condemn the Confederate Flag… Washington Still Fears It!

March 19, 2013

Someone told me the Confederate Flag was a symbol of racism. Bah! Fact is they fell into the spin that has been around only since more recent times, as people in the 1860’s and early 1900’s KNEW why the Civil War was fought. And even though it is in black and white, SOME people choose the Romanticised version, which paints the North as the Glorious Freedom Fighters for the Enslaved Negroes of the South.
The myth has long been dispelled about the war being fought to free the slaves. It started for reasons from Theological and Political differences, to Industry and Taxation. And, the irony of it all is that the government is not valid without the consent of the governed, a principle set forth in the Constitution. When the South seceded, they didn’t declare war, the North did. And, “I am for preserving to the States the powers not yielded by them to the Union,” Thomas Jefferson claimed. “If there be any among us who wish to dissolve the Union… let them stand undisturbed, ” Jefferson said in his “First Inaugural Address” in 1800. Virginia, the two Carolinas, and Georgia funded 3/4 of the expenses of running the Federal Government. The tariffs were heavier on the South and they were getting nothing in return. It was TAXES and import DUTIES that brought about secession, not slavery. And, if it had been about slavery, all the south would have to have done was accept the ORIGINAL 13th amendment to have slavery protected for all time, in 1861. It was about the North envying the South’s prosperity, and fearing they would take it with them when they left. Lincoln saw as much and claimed, “I can’t let them go. Who would pay for the government?” Lincoln knew who was in charge of the government he headed: “In saving the Union, I have destroyed the republic. Before me I have the Confederacy which I loath. But behind me I have the bankers which a fear.” About The Emancipation Proclamation Abraham Lincoln claimed in 1862, “If I could save the Union without freeing any slave, I would do it.” He didn’t care about slaves or slavery but union and maintaining power. He said, ” I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about, in any way, a social and political equality of the White and Black races, that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of making voters or jurors of Negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with White people. I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the White and Black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I, as much as any other man, am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the White race.”  Whew… The ORIGINAL White Supremacist! Like I said…it wasn’t about Freedom or Equality for the Black population. It was about the same things we are fighting NOW, with the spendthrifts in Washington. Taxation, destroying our prosperity, and basically being enslaved by the government to fund the government and their expenditures, and even then, their redistribution of the wealth. It was taking from the South, to fund expansion, industrialization, and failed ventures. The bankers were looking at huge losses if the South wasn’t paying the import taxes, and the Government was looking at collapsing because if the South seceded, it had no money to run. It’s always been about the wealth, and taking that wealth from the South. That is what the Confederate Flag is a Battle Standard for. Not in support of Slavery. That is the history written by the winner…the spin.The same spin and bias this administration is feeding America as they tax heavier, and further encroach on individual rights. As they become divisive on every level…religious, political, racial, and economical. There is strength in the Confederate flag, and spirit that even Washington fears, today. That’s where those of us that cling to our guns and Bibles are coming from, and Obama knows it. And it isn’t about race , for MOST of us, but about individual Freedoms, and Rights GUARANTEED under the Constitution that Obama and his Marxist minions have no respect for.  And, as an afterthought… He compared himself to Lincoln, and I’ll give him this…He cares nothing for the black population. He is using them to further his agenda,  just as Lincoln USED them to further his. And, somewhere in history the “Glorious Lie” will be told of how he freed the minorities AGAIN, and gave them the rich man’s wealth. And, meanwhile, this administration prepares for war on its own citizens, again, as indicated by the purchase of ammunition, weaponry, riot tanks, and recent legislation. All these things because the taxpayer–the wealthy landowner–is tired of the Government doing the same thing NOW, that it was doing then to force the secession of states in 1860 and 1861. My God, people, we have states threatening secession, NOW! And, once again, the truth about why is being twisted… We are called racists, rednecks, Tea Baggers, and anything despicable the Marxists can think of,  and because they can’t dispel the truth with ridicule, they write their own propaganda and history.  If you want to know what the Confederate Flag really stands for, it is kind of a representation of  “Never Say Die Spirit”. The good ol’ boys and their mud slingin’, BBQ, fatback, hunting, fishing, gun toting,  “a country boy can survive”, and see you in church on Sunday way of life, where you take care of your neighbors in need because it’s right, not because the Government became their lifelong provider. See, it’s also about values like honor, honesty, and believing in some kind of work ethic. That is what the Confederate flag represents. It’s what is left of the American Spirit, right now, I think. So, don’t attack my Confederate Flag… I think that in the not too distant future, you just may be glad to see it coming, and proud of what it stands for.
