Southern Heritage <br>News and Views: In Defense of the Flag

In Defense of the Flag

It truly pains my heart that a lot of blacks, and misguided whites, are offended by the Confederate Battle Flag.

That flag does not now represent, nor has it ever represented, slavery.  Yes, it has been hijacked by hate groups, like the KKK, but their main flag of choice has been the U.S. flag, and they also use the Christian flag. Why are the U.S. and Christian flags not called “racist” flags?  Because there is a war going on against all things Southern; our heritage, our history, and our symbols ever since the socialists won the War of Northern Aggression.

Southern culture would not be what it is without the flavor of the Southern blacks. Much has been contributed  by our fellow black Southerners.  It is sad to see them, and others, indoctrinated and brainwashed by those who are promoting a socialist agenda, which includes cultural genocide.  While nobody condones the institution of slavery, the fact is that it was a way of life, in both the North and the South, for many years. It was the New England slave traders that built the ships to transport already captured Africans from their homeland to the U.S. where they were sold to both Northerners and Southerners. Many brave, black Confederates fought the invading armies of blue, as did many Cherokee Indians, Jews, and Mexicans who sided with the Confederacy.  Slavery was not the issue, as taught in our rewritten history, but money, power, and greed, as is the case in all wars. General Robert E. Lee was against slavery, and had freed the slaves he inherited.  Union General Ulysses S. Grant retained his slaves even after the ratification of the 13th Amendment, which actually freed the slaves. So, the South was NOT fighting for slavery, and the North was NOT fighting to free the slaves. The institution was on its way out anyway.  The war just destroyed everything in its path, which included slavery. Slavery ended first in the North, not because of any moral endeavor or mercy on their part, but due to the institution not being conducive to an industrial society, and because Northerners refused to work alongside of blacks. Segregation, Jim Crowe Laws, and the Black Codes all originated in the North, not in the South.

Since the South was being burdened with 85% of the federal revenues, Lincoln could not bear to see that disappear with the seceded states.  He stated in his first inaugural address that he would continue the collection of duties, “by force if necessary”.  His invading armies raped, burned, murdered, and looted their way through the South, waging war on innocent civilians, who were mostly old men, women, and children. The Marxists have tried to stamp out our symbols and heritage for 150 years.  They don’t want any sign of self reliance or defiance to tyranny displayed.  They want us all to be crushed beneath the thumb of tyranny and not know what our Founders stood for, as well as our dead Confederate ancestors. They slander our symbols with words like “hate” , “racism”, and “slavery”, which are much more suited for their Yankee flag than any Confederate banner. It was their flag that flew high above the slave trading ships, built in New England. No Confederate flag ever flew on any slaver. Slander, lies, and propaganda are all the enemy have to hurl at us, because none of the historical facts back up any of their arguments. The truth easily deflates anything they can produce. We must defend these attacks upon our culture and heritage and not let these lies against us go unanswered.

Why would a former president of the NAACP, H. K. Edgerton, dress in Confederate gray and carry the Confederate Battle Flag from Asheville, NC to Austin, TX if the flag represents “hatred” and “racism”?  Because it does not represent these things, but represents a proud people fighting to defend their homeland from an illegal and unconstitutional invasion by an overgrown, oppressive government.  Mr. Edgerton has risen up above the traditional myths of indoctrination and learned for himself the truth which the media, and the government do not want known.  Anyone who contradicts the “standard” version of “history” is labeled as a kook or a lunatic. Well, as Mark Twain said, “It is easier to fool someone than to convince them they have been fooled”.   The truth is out there for anyone who dares look for it. Hosea 4:6 says, “My people destroy themselves for lack of knowledge”.  I would invite everyone, especially my Southern brethren, black and white, to discover the truth and infuse themselves with knowledge of that great conflict which has been rewritten to hide the truth.  Then the light of truth will open your eyes to what has been hidden and lied about for 150 years.
