The War against the Confederacy

By Ray Starmann

The War against the Confederacy is a War against America.

The War against the Confederacy is a war on American history.

The War against the Confederacy is a war against all of us and a war on America’s institutions.

The War against the Confederacy is being waged by militant leftists, big government lackeys, aggrieved snowflakes and the hate America crowd.

Since a psychotic young man, who owned a Confederate flag, killed nine parishioners at a black church in South Carolina in June of 2015, the radical left, big government crowd in this country is doing something they’ve wanted to do since 1861, completely eradicate the Confederacy and every last vestige of its history.

For two years, the nation has watched as Confederate flags have been ripped down from city halls and state capitol buildings and have been banned from selling on Amazon, although one may freely purchase a Nazi, Soviet, Italian Fascist or a North Korean flag on the website. The harmless TV show, the Dukes of Hazzard was permanently cancelled by TV Land, even though it is one of the most popular shows in TV history. The reason being that the main characters drove a car named the General Lee that had a Rebel flag on the roof.

Yeah, those Duke Boys were some real racists.

It would be laughable if it wasn’t true. But, this is America in 2017, where cultural Marxists are running wild.

In every corner of the New South, the history of the Old South is being destroyed to placate the wishes of people who are motivated by the 21st Century version of fascism known as political correctness.

There is not a week that goes by now without seeing a news report concerning a Confederate monument that has been vandalized or is being torn down, in scenes that mimic the actions of ISIS in the Middle East or the SA in Nazi Germany. Statues of General Robert E. Lee are being carted off feet first, from Virginia to Texas, as if he was a deposed despot, instead of the most beloved general in American history.

In fact, last week in New Orleans, city officials began removing Confederate monuments that include statues of Lee, General P.T. Beauregard and Confederate President Jefferson Davis.

There is a dangerous trend infesting this country like malignant cancer cells. Anyone on the left who feels triggered or psychologically injured by a book, a speaker, a statue, a monument, a flag or a song, can claim some kind of special candyass status and demand that the speaker or in the case of the Confederacy, the flags, the statues and the monuments are destroyed.

You can’t eradicate history simply by removing statues, but that won’t stop the radical left.

Of course the most common argument for removing symbols of the Confederacy is that the symbols represent racism.

Is the Confederate flag racist? If it is in the hands of members of the KKK who are waving it, yes.

But, what about the person from North Carolina, for example, whose great, great grandfather served in the Army of Northern Virginia?  Do they see that flag as a symbol of racism, or as the symbol of military history, or American history? I would assume the latter.

And, who has the right to tell them how to interpret history? When others order you to remove symbols of history, or to think a certain way that is simply fascism; nothing more and nothing less.

Still others would say that Robert E. Lee was a racist because he fought for the Confederacy. But, Lee himself never purchased or owned any slaves. He did inherit slaves from his father in law, George Custis. Some of the slaves were freed in 1857 and the rest in 1862. In fact if you had asked him, he would have told you he was opposed to slavery and that he fought the Civil War because his home state, Virginia, had been invaded by the Yankees.

What many of the wailing little fascists in America don’t know is that General Ulysses S. Grant, the man who prosecuted the war against Lee, the man whom Lee surrendered to in 1865, owned a slave named William Jones, whom he freed in 1859. In fact, Grant’s wife, Julia had four slaves, although they may have officially belonged to her father.

One would think the snowflakes and the liberal whining mayors would be demanding a removal of all Grant statues across the nation.

But, logic has never been a factor in the liberal thought process.

Do the liberal mayors, the PC governors and the little vandals of America know that only six percent of the soldiers fighting for the Confederacy actually owned any slaves?

If asked, Confederate soldiers would have said they were fighting because the North had invaded their land, or they were fighting against big government and the right to be left alone.  Big government vs. small government; sounds familiar doesn’t it? It’s almost like it never really got resolved. Very few men were fighting to protect slavery, or the profits of King Cotton.

If asked, most soldiers in the Union Army would have said they were fighting to save the union. Except for abolitionists wearing blue, a majority weren’t fighting to free the slaves.

Sounds a little racist to me…

And, what about President Lincoln?

In 1861, Lincoln supported the original 13th Amendment or the Corwin Amendment. The Corwin Amendment was a proposed amendment to the United States Constitution that would shield “domestic institutions” of the states (which in 1861 included slavery) from the constitutional amendment process and from abolition or interference by Congress. It was passed by the 36th Congress on March 2, 1861, and submitted to the state legislatures for ratification. Senator William H. Seward of New York introduced the amendment in the Senate and Representative Thomas Corwin of Ohio introduced it in the House of Representatives. It was one of several measures considered by Congress in an ultimately unsuccessful attempt to attract the seceding states back into the Union and in an attempt to entice border slave states to stay.

The official text of the amendment reads: No amendment shall be made to the Constitution which will authorize or give to Congress the power to abolish or interfere, within any State, with the domestic institutions thereof, including that of persons held to labor or service by the laws of said State.

President Lincoln, in his first inaugural address on March 4, said of the Corwin Amendment:

I understand a proposed amendment to the Constitution—which amendment, however, I have not seen—has passed Congress, to the effect that the Federal Government shall never interfere with the domestic institutions of the States, including that of persons held to service … holding such a provision to now be implied constitutional law, I have no objection to its being made express and irrevocable.

Hmm…Sounds a little racist to me. Strangely, Steven Spielberg deleted any mention of the Corwin Amendment in his film, Lincoln. What a surprise.

Before the amendment could be ratified by all states, war broke out. But, the following states did ratify it: Kentucky, Ohio, Rhode Island, Illinois and Maryland.

Lincoln was a realist who would have done just about anything to save the Union, including tossing the constitution out the window, which he frequently did. Emancipation was a political legerdemain, to distract the nation from the series of Union Army defeats in the Eastern Theater and a litany of incompetent Union Army commanders. Lincoln needed the abolitionists behind him and something to rally the North; hence, the Emancipation Proclamation. Two years after emancipation, Lincoln was concocting ways for the black population to be relocated to British Colonies in the Caribbean before he was assassinated.

Whoaa…

Dirty little secret lefties, what if Lincoln was more of a racist than Lee?

Oh my God!

I bet your Marxist professor didn’t tell you that.

The victors wrote the history and sold the snake oil that they were the holy saviors defeating those evil slaver holders, even though almost all of the men they fought never owned a slave in their whole lives.

To compensate for their incompetence on the battlefield, the North developed the ‘holier than thou’ attitude. Lee may have run rings around the Army of the Potomac, but so what, he was evil and so was Jackson, Stuart, Longstreet, the entire Army of Northern Virginia and the Confederacy. Also included in the group of white nationalist racists were George Patton’s Confederate grandfather who was killed in 1864, Chesty Puller’s Confederate grandfather who was killed in 1863 and Woodrow Wilson’s father who was a CSA chaplain.

Combine a 150 year arrogant attitude with modern day political correctness and you have the current War against the Confederacy.

Don’t think for a moment that it will stop with Lee and Davis. There is no end to the militant fascism raging among left wing snowflakes.

Those who come for Lee today, will come for Lincoln tomorrow.

Soon, they will be demanding that statues of Jefferson, Washington and Andrew Jackson are destroyed. In fact Jackson has been run off the $20 bill to be replaced by Harriet Tubman.

After they are finished with them, they will go after Custer, Grant, Wyatt Earp, Teddy Roosevelt and FDR; after all he imprisoned the Japanese during WWII. When they’re done with FDR, they’ll come for Ike and Ronald Wilson Reagan.

Don’t think it will just be flags and statues. Next, there will be book burnings and destruction of private property belonging to people deemed enemies of the state.

It won’t stop until Americans put their feet down and say enough is enough. Frankly these people who try and tell us how to interpret our own history are nothing more than tyrants.

The War against the Confederacy is a war on freedom itself.

N.B. I’m not a Southerner. I’m from Northern Illinois and my relatives fought for the Union. In fact, my great, great, great uncle who served in the 2nd Indiana Cavalry, was captured during McCook’s Raid on Atlanta on July 30, 1864 and spent the rest of the war in Andersonville Prison.

He survived. But, it looks like American history won’t.

  1. Well,my maternal greatgrandfather A.J. Richardson fought with the 1st Tennessee Regulars at the Battles of Lookout Mountain,Chattanooga,and Chickamauga…..they gave Grant’s boys a good blistering during that campaign……then at the end of his enlistment,he went home to White Oak plantation on Tumbling Creek in Dickson County west of Nashville and,even as all of Tennessee fell under Federal occupation, kept the Richardson family together and the plantation growing and fended off the depredations of frequent Yankee cavalry patrols that were usually on foraging missions they called “requisitioning”….he and the boys played merry hell hiding the smoked meats and other goodies from those bluebelly vultures…A. J. was something of a hero and and a legend in my family….and no amount of whining by politically correct lefty revisionists will ever erase my family’s part in the War Between the States

    • I agree, Robbins Mitchell. My great grandfather was with the 103rd Vol Infantry and captured at Plymouth NC a river blocade. He survived Andersonville. I do not want history distorted and I do not want the South made to look evil. Stop this political correct horse dung.The war is still on. This time for our minds and soul.

  3. Painting everyone with the broad brush of “racism” hardly excuses the veneration of those who actually took up arms against the Union in order to preserve slavery. As a Yankee, I find it more than a little galling to have traitors immortalized in bronze and marble, and more than a little ironic to have military bases named after them. What would you think of an Adolf Hitler High School in Germany or a parade celebrating the Bataan Death March in Japan to honor someone’s grandpappy’s noble fight for fascism?

    Maybe it is time we reevaluate how we honor the “Noble Cause” in this country, and realize it just wasn’t that noble.

    • So, you’re comparing Hitler and Tojo to Lee, Longstreet, Forrest, Stuart and Jackson? They’re traitors in your mind, but not to millions of people in the South. Why is secession treason?

    • Shawn,you need to study your history a little better,THE ROTHCHILD BANKERS were trying to over come the entire nation,AND the south said screw you,and the bought and sold NORTHERN GOVERNMENT ATTACKED THEM,and tried to shove it down their throat,they fought back,MONEY SON,NOTHING ELSE..its always money..THATS THE REASON THEY KILLED THE PRESIDENT,he created his new money called GREEN BACKS,they killed him for it….

  4. My GG Grandfather was Lt. FJ Power, Co. G, 17th Va. Infantry. Wounded and captured at Manassas Gap covering Lee’s rear upon the withdrawal from Gettysburg. Sent to Johnson’s Island, a yankee POW camp in Sandusky, Ohio.
    As stated in the first video, For Old Virginia, this did not end with him nor will it end with me. We WILL have our freedom and way of life returned to us. This ain’t over; not by a damn sight.

  5. All my Pure-Bred dogs are named for Southern Generals and/or heroes…Ive had that tradition for over 40 years and my son now names his familys dogs the same way.
    When people learn that my female Shepherd is named (John Hunt) MORGAN and they ask the genesis of the name they get a history lesson about the Commander of Braggs right cavalry wing.The Story lives on in many ways.

  6. This is a war on WHITE. Period. he Confederacy is just a sideshow to give them “legitimacy”. You are being genocided by immigration and Judas Goats such as the Kardashians promoting intermarriage. They HATE White.

  8. How prophetic were his words….
    If the North wins it is not alone the destruction of our property, it is the prelude to anarchy, infidelity and the ultimate loss of free and responsible government on this continent. They are the tribe of Commerce, Factories and Banks and we should meet the Federal invaders on the outer verge of just and right defense. No quarter given to the invaders of our homes and firesides……..Stonewall Jackson

  9. It was the intransigence of the slave holding class that foiled any type of political compromise with the wretched institution of slavery. If they paid the slaves instead of whipping them I would wager plantation production would have tripled, sounds worth a try and way better than 100’s of thousands dead. BTW southerners ignore how they terrorized the north for ten years after the passage of the fugitive slave act.

  10. THE WHITE FLAGS on the brookland bridge were THE US GOVERNMENT signaling they SURRENDED to the ROTHCHILD bankers and russian and chinese military,YOU BETTER be ready to fight again,THIS ITS WAR in the streets of america,DO NOT ATTEMP A FACE TO FACE BATTLE,you’ll lose to many good men doing that,get out of the cities,their going to nuke them,and the air force will spray a VIRUS on everyone be ready for it,GET your kids OUT of the public schools,their going to kidnapp them to get your guns,watchout in the mountains,they’ll be coming for you on quad cycles,7 of them in a group to over come you,BE READY it starts anyday day now……….

  11. My GGF was also involved in McCook’s Raid but on the Confederate Side in Sul Ross’ Texas Cavalry Brigade. He never owned slaves. He married two different Creek Indian girls after the first died in the birth of her third child. The late 1860’s were a hard time in northern Mississippi. My GGF did not tell his children of his war experience. His oldest half Indian son only knew of his Texas Ranger experience. No one believed him, until I proved it in 2008. We finally found his grave and marked it with a Civil War VA grave stone and a Texas Ranger Cross in 2015. As a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans I fight in this current war all the time. Your article was very accurate. “Save Your Confederate Money, The South Will Rise Again!”

    • My GGGU was captured at Newnan. Perhaps your GGF captured him. 🙂

      He was just another immigrant that Lincoln poured into the fire.

  12. Once you revise history to fit a political view, there is no end to the revisions. Hitler and his propaganda ministry did this to prove Ayarian superiorty, just as the radical left is trying to do today to prove whites are the problem of the world…

    The revisions will continue.

  13. THE INNOCENT SOUTHERN CITIZENS WERE MURDERED BY LINCOLN AND SHERMAN. THE SOUTHERN STATES SUFFERED DUE TO THE WAR CRIMES FROM THE 2 LEADERS. THE SOUTH LOST VERY INFASTRUCTURE……CITIES WERE BURNED……RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY AND HOMES WERE BURNED…. LOOTING…..RAPING…..SHERMAN AND LINCOLN WERE RESPONSIBLE. BLACKS AND WHITES WERE THE SUBJECTS BOTH RACES WERE VIOLATED IN EVERY WAY POSSIBLE.
    THESE TO SUB-HUMANS WITH ZERO CONCIOUS GOT AWAY CLEAN AND NEVER WERE BROUGHT TO TRIAL.

    HAD SOUTHERN LEADERS CONDUCTED THEMSELVES IN THIS MANNER …..REST ASSURED THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN PROSECUTED .
    THE SOUTH CONTINUES TO BE VIOLATED …..BY THE U.S. FEDERAL GOVERNMENT…..OUR CIVIL WAR HISTORY IS BEING THREATENED AND ABOLISHED. CIVIL WAR STATUES AND MONUMENTS ARE NOW BEING REMOVED AND DEFACED.

    LINCOLN AND SHERMANS WAR CRIMES SHOULD BE ADDRESSED ……THE LINCOLN MEMORIAL SHOULD BE JACK HAMMERED ….. BEATEN TO DUST AND HAULED AWAY. ANY AND ALL OF LINCOLNS MEMORIALS OR STATUES SHOULD RECEIVE THE SAME TREATMENT……AND THE SAME FOR SHERMAN.

    ALL OF THE SOLDIERS WHO WERE PART OF THIS SPECIALIZED CIVILIAN KILLING ….. PACK OF CRIMINALS SHOULD BE STRIPPED OF ALL MILITARY HONORS, RANKS, AND RECOGNIZED FOR THEIR CRIMES.

  14. The Marxist tyrants are going after the “low hanging fruits” first. The same divide and conquer commies that say all things Confederate must go will soon go after everything else. What’s next? The Washington monument or the Jefferson memorial? How the Declaration of Independence, the US Constitution and bill of rights? All of these things have the same characteristics of Confederate Memorial’s there all the product of southern white slaveowners. After all, Barack Obama did say that the United States was basically a flawed country.
