My Perspective of the UDC Organization

As I previously stated on this forum I think there are many fine ladies in the UDC but the problem seems to be with the ones they elect to the top leadership positions both state and national.  They appear to want to be only a history group and unwilling to get involved in the defense of our monuments, flags, symbols and all. Just meet-eat-retreat and feel great about themselves while our CSA history, heritage, and culture is under all out Marxist Socialist attack at the national, state, and local levels. 
Marxist Socialism-Communism  uses HUMANITARIANISM as a cloak to shelter their evil agenda of stripping people of their freedom and taking total control. They lure and entice people by offering free financial aid and free goods and services. A socialist is best described as a communist who does NOT YET have enough political power to take everything you have. Progressive and critical thinker are deceptive names used in place of socialist and communist to gain public acceptance. Karl Marx said "people separated from their heritage are easily persuaded" and communist Vladimir Lenin coined the term "useful idiots" to describe those who through ignorance work to help achieve adoption of the socialist communist manifesto.
There is a story-probably fictional- but good enough to be true that explains how the socialist-communist trap operates. In the Okefenokee swamp in southeast Georgia there was a drove of wild hogs that none of the locals had been successful in catching with dogs. One day a stranger! showed up. He built a pen but left the gate open. He put corn out away from the gate. Slowly the young pigs began to come and eat the corn. Finally the older hogs decided if the young pigs were going to eat the corn that they might as well also. The stranger kept placing the corn closer and closer to the pen and gate and eventually inside the pen. Then one night when all the pigs and hogs were inside the pen eating he sat in a tree stand and pulled a rope which sprung the gate shut. 
This upper UDC leadership appears to have been indoctrinated with Marxist political correctness and a desire to be liked and approved of by the liberal socialist left. They seem terrified that their good image will be stained if they defend the Confederacy which is  associated with slavery.  Never mind that the north (New England) who was primarily responsible for the development of American slavery gets a near free pass although attacks on the U.S. flag have now started as us Confederates warned would happen. 
I think the original UDC ladies who accomplished so much in the late 19th and early 20th centuries would be ashamed of this seemingly timid and cowardly group who is now in leadership positions and would deem them unworthy of their sires and fit only for a tyrants yoke. Unfortunately we have some like this in the SCV also.
Four ladies that I know and have tremendous admiration for who are doing all within their ability with the resources they have available to defend our CSA history, heritage, and culture are Mrs Rena Cobb of Preston Georgia, Mrs. Joan Hough (pronounced Huff) of Texas, Mrs.Pat Godwin of Alabama, and Mrs.Susan Hathaway of Virginia. And I am sure there are many many more.Thanks ladies for all you do. 
And two of the many many gentlemen who deserve recognition, appreciation and respect for the work they do are Chuck Demastus in Mississippi who publishes Southern Heritage News and Views (SHNV) and Bernhard Thuersam of North Carolina who publishes info. in SHNV. Mr. Thuersam is chairman of the North Carolina Sesquicentennial Commission. I don't think anyone could have done a better job. He is a native New Yorker who came south in the military, learned the truth, and became a more staunch Confederate than most southerners.

What Did They Abolish?

Many historians tell us the abolitionists are credited with the abolishment of slavery.  That is the tip of the iceberg.  They also abolished the original intent of the Constitution of the United States, they abolished States Rights, they abolished the Republican form of government, they altered citizenship from State citizenship to National citizenship.  In effect they abolished the “Republican Form of government and replaced it with a Democracy.
Their vendetta of hate against the Southern states forever abolished the foundation of our Republic.  Senator Wade of Ohio, June 25,1862, stated, “I would reduce the (South) to utter poverty… We shall never have peace until we take their (the South) influence away.”  The Hon. G.. W. Julian, of Indiana, Jan. 13 1862, added “Let us convert (the South) into a conquered Provence, and govern them as such is our discretion.  Finally, Wendell Phillips stated, “History shows no precedent of getting rid of an aristocracy like (the South) except by the death of the generation.”
The object of Northern Hate was to destroy the Constitution!  Mr. Garrison in a speech, 1856, declared, “The Union is a lie…a covenant with death and an agreement with Hell.”   Wendell Phillips proclaimed, “The Constitution of our fathers was a mistake! Tear it in pieces and make a better.  I have shown you that our work cannot be done under our Constitution.”
The foundation stone for this evil scheme is the “14th Amendment”, an amendment that was never legally adopted under article five of the constitution.  Under it the provisions of the 9th and 10th amendments were effectively negated. States Rights were abolished and brought under the control of the Federal government.  Voting rights were no longer a State function, but were under the authority of the Federal government. The Republican Form of government was replaced with a theoretical Democracy.  Education, local business, housing, contracts and Religion were taken form the states and deposited in Federal control.
It is interesting to not, the Southern states acceded to union (not joined) in the formative period and in 1860-61 they exercised the right to secede  based on the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.  When  the Congressional radicals acted to prevent Southern Congressmen their rightful seats in congress, 1867, and declared the South was a Conquered Provence, which considered the South to be outside the Union. Remember, the war was fought to preserve the Union, it was not until 1963 that the North fought for emancipation. At this point the South proved the political question of “does a State have the right to secede?” The South won the political objective of the War for Southern Independence, or as the conquers called the Civil War.
The 1950’s and 1960’s brought about what is called “”Reconstruction #2”.  The hatred of the South furthered the destruction of our Constitutional government.  The Supreme Court completed the demolition of the states during the Wilson administration and the passage of the 16th and 17th Amendments, giving States Rights over to the Federal government.
Then in the 1950’s The Warren Court disavowed the Constitution in favor of social engineering, overturning established cases, The Slaughter House case, Plessy V Fugerson, Gong Lum.  These decisions of previous courts upheld States Rights and individual liberties.
May 17, 1954 brought the Warren Courts Brown Case.  This decree by the court was heavily influenced by Gunner Myrdel’s work, An American Dilemma.  In chapter one of this work Myrdel wrote of the “fetish cult of the Constitution.”  He went on to say, “The 150 year old Constitution is in many respects impractical and ill-suited for modern conditions.” He also stated, “The worship of the Constitution also is a most flagrant violation of the American Creed.”  and to conclude, “The Constitution was nearly a plot against the common people.  This is the base on which Constitutional law was changed.  The work by Myrdel was mostly based on writings of authors who were identified as being communist or sympathizers.
Menial minded professors have taught three generations of American students that Mr. Hamilton’s idea of rule by the “best men” is demolished by political correctness and teachings of equality.  These professors teach the change of a Republican Form of government to a democracy.  They ignore the wisdom of our Founding Fathers that you must govern under form not theory. Thus you have a government of men, not laws.
This topic is well worth your study and attention.
