    I don't see any white "guilt" from the confed flag worshippers. I see white supremacists who'd like to push America back into the gutter of segregation.

    Start with reading The South was Right. A lot of things I have actually found out that have been left out of the history books you'll have to go to heaven to find out, since my granddaddy, who taught me more than I could ever learn in any book, has been gone from this earth for 9 1/2 years now. He got his information from the veterans who lived in the Old Soldier's Home in Richmond VA, while a student at Benedictine College (now Benedictine College Prepatory) in Richmond in the 1920's.

    That's because the white guilt is coming from those seeking to ban the confederate flag and if possible, all things that may provide any honor or glory to members of the confederacy or the memory of the confederacy, as well as those wanting to white wash history to conform to their own ideology.

    There definitely are white supremacists still around - just like there are black racists and all sorts of strange things. You see what you want to see because that's what Progressives do.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    What is it gonna take for you to learn that the war was not all about slavery until a couple of years in? It was ONE issue but sure as heck not the main one. What is it gonna take, the Congressional records from the 1850's?

Just don't expect government to prop up the ideas of white supremacy any more than it should be propping up religious beliefs.
    His mental issues do not need to be dismissed, they need to be brought out to focus on the pathetic mental health system in this nation.

    Re: Confederate Flag

    Later, when the yankees realized it was do or die time, because Europe was fixing to help the South, then they made it all about slavery.
    So, horsegirl, you're telling us that you think northerners wrote the secession declarations for the southern states? Did you not even know that these documents, which clearly state that the threat of the abolition of slavery is either the no. 1 item on their list of reasons or the only one listed, existed? It would be easy to find them online but I suspect you wouldn't want to do that because it would threaten your mythology.

    Do you forget that slavery was more rampant in the north than you are led to believe? Not to mention that Lincoln in reality had every intention of deporting the blacks back to Africa, which luckily for them he didn't get a chance. His "emancipation proclamation" on the other hand only freed the Southern slaves, who if they did manage to escape and were caught they were returned under the Fugitive Slave Act. Now I could see where some states would make it all about slavery but overall it was a minor issue, that is until the yanks realized the Confederates were no pushovers.

    Bwhahaha and there is the origins of your revisionists propaganda. The League of the South are a white supremacist and white nationalist organization. James Ronald Kennedy(Author of The South was Right) being a co founder of the League of the South.

    Southern Nationalist is how the League of the South describes itself and then there is the white supremacist BS.

    DixieNet.Org :: Official Website of the League of the South!

    "Q: Why does the LS seek to protect the Anglo-Celtic core population and culture of the historic South?

    A: The Anglo-Celtic peoples settled the South and gave it its dominate culture and civilisation. We believe that the advancement of Anglo-Celtic culture and civilisation is vital in order to preserve our region as we know it. Should this core be destroyed or displaced the South would be made over in an alien image - unfamiliar and inhospitable to our children and grandchildren. We, as Anglo-Celtic Southerners, have a duty to protect that which our ancestors bequeathed to us. If we do not promote our interests then no one will do it for us."


    Its funny the neo-Confederates always out themselves as being the reason that the Confederate flag represents hate.
