Hummmmmm

To those women protesters who took off work yesterday– Isn’t amazing the world didn’t stop while you missed work??? Even when the elected officials walked out in support of your cause, life went on.

HUMMMMMMM

That should tell you just how important to you are in the world as whole. Think about. See if you get my point.

An open letter to some elected officials

This is a letter I wrote to several elected. It is a result of Sen Kaine asking Sen. Tom Price about his support of Georgia’s Confederate History Month Resolution which did not not include slavery. In answering Sen. Price sort of stumbled over a non-answer. Ladies and gentlemen we have our work cut out for us.

Due to comments Trump made at the Black History Museum in Washington, I will be writing a letter to him also.

Secretary Price,
My wife and I watched you question Representative Tom Price on his nomination by President Trump to head the Health and Human Services department. I was appalled to see you question Representative Price about his support of Georgia’s Confederate History Month and its failure to mention slavery. Why should the resolution mention slavery?
In my opinion a question of that nature just suggests the lack of historical knowledge and/or a biased view of the war. Surely anyone who has studied the issues of the war know that slavery had nothing to do with the war. That statement can be proven true by historical records of the period.

That being said I challenge you to get what you deem the best four historians available to you. When you have assembled your team and I have assembled my team of the same number a total of five each, we will debate you on the floor of the Senate. We will prove our point. The prize, a federally recognized celebration of Confederate History Month. I only ask of you to keep the debate and voting fair and unbiased.

I have in the past submitted a copy of a Confederate History Resolution to the Mississippi representatives. Sad to say, they did not have the knowledge or the backbone to try and move this issue forward. To be honest, I am willing to bet the same is true today. I will forward this resolution to any and all parties who may want to read it. It follows the resolution for BLACK HISTORY MONTH very close. By the way, don’t you find this federal recognition of one race somewhat RACIST??? You do know that a Confederate History Month will honor ALL races that were present in the United States at that period of time???

Now, speaking of Black History Month, why does the Federal Government practice racism? I was in the Veterans Center in Biloxi, Mississippi and I noticed several placards dedicated solely to Black History month. I am curious how much money was wasted on this material that only a select few care about? Wouldn’t the money be better spent on the nineteen trillion dollar debt? Would it better serve men and women of ALL races who served in the armed forces of the United States, if it was spent on services for them???

I know the reasons behind Black History Month, so is it your point that whites have not contributed anything to this country worth mentioning? Confederates or ex-Confederates?

I also bring to your attention the holiday Martin L. King. What do you really know about him??? Is he really worth having a holiday named after him? In the whole history of this country is there not one white who is worthy of a Federal recognized holiday? Don’t even mention the war criminal Lincoln. Let’s talk about honest and honorable men like Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee, and James Longstreet, or Joe Wheeler perhaps.

I am really curious how many replies I get. I am not talking about the canned responses that you folks usually send out. I am talking about honest to goodness, thought out replies. The smart money says none.

Best regards,

The Truth about the Battle of Liberty Place

It never ceases to amaze me how some “historians” or those who want to post blog articles about the South always leave about half the facts out of their articles. Such is the case with Nick Sacco in his article Reflections on the Battle of Liberty Place Monument and the Political Nature of Public Iconography at https://pastexplore.wordpress.com/2017/01/19/reflections-on-the-battle-of-liberty-place-monument-and-the-political-nature-of-public-iconography/

Letts’ take a look shall we?

Mr. Sacco’s first paragraph he states the White league is made up of “ex-Confederates and white supremacist.” My question to Mr. Sacco is how do you know they were white supremacist ? By the inscription on the monument as you posted??? We will get to that later.

Anyway this battle was a uprising against the RECONSTRUTIONIST government of William P. Kellogg. You can read more here at Wili. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Pitt_Kellogg to get a good background on the vent.

As Sacco goes on with his narrative he tells us that the crowd was made up of ex-Confederates. he does not tell us that that the Municipal Police is lead by no other that Confederate General James Longstreet and some 4,000 armed soldiers. That fact is glaring omitted.

Another fact that seems to be missing is P.G.T. Beauregard was an active member of the Reform party that believed Blacks should have voting rights. Oh well these are just they sort of facts that you come to expect the “other” side will deliberately overlook as that tap out their propaganda.

In his third paragraph Mr. Sacco wants to lecture us about race relations in the South— Jim Crow and such. Where races relations any better in the North??/ I seriously doubt it. In fact was the Jim Crow laws started in the Northern states??? I am certain they did. Of course being of superior intellect Mr. Sacco is gonna tell us what his interruption of the statue is.

Moving along, I am getting tired of typing, so I am gonna make a couple of comments and then give you a link to read. These are points I want you to pay attention to—

Sacco’s Italian comment– wrong.

The Inscription on the monument note what the links says about it

You can read the truth at http://www.nolatourguy.com/FrenchQuarter/the-battle-of-liberty-place/

And my last comment think about this–

What is the difference between a white supremist and say a black civil rights activist??? none. But that is a post for another day.

Baker’s Fake News

Well folks I have finally got everything moved in the direction I need. Seems like Al mackey has been quite, at least he has been spreading as many lies as he had been in the past. Not to fear Rob Baker seems to have taken his place. However Baker is mostly whining because of the results of the presidential election.

I suppose that it comes as no surprise that, according to Baker, everyone who voted for Trump is a Confederate Flag waving racist. I assume this includes the blacks and Hispanics who voted for Trump????

Anyway Baker has a photo shopped image of Trump and the Confederate Battle flag posted. So what Baker, you are just promoting what has become a well used term today— FAKE NEWS See the image at https://historicstruggle.wordpress.com/2016/07/06/donald-trumps-confederate-flag/’

Folks be sure to read Kevin Levins ignorant quote that Baker posted. Oh boy he shows his true colors.

Now let me say the photo below is just one of many that can be found online. I used it for no particular reason except it shows Clinton with the US flag.

Now let’s look at some more photos of the US flag shall we???

Now let me say this, unlike Baker, it is not my intention to talk bad or disparage any flag in US history. I simply point out the TRUTH

Baker I say this to you, anythime you want to discuss the baggage carried by the US Flag and that baggage carried by the Confederate Battle Flag, I will be here. You are welcome to post a opposing view in a civil manner. Something you seldom allow on your pages.

Not Much has been happening

Folks I haven’t dropped off the face of the earth and no I haven’t give up the good fight to correct some of the lies spread by some people (you know who they are). In fact I have been quite busy with the SHAPE websites, adding info and updating some pages. Running three websites is quite a chore, add defending Southern Heritage to the mix and it amounts for a busy time.

It does seem that Mackey has slacked up on his hateful posts some, so that is good. less time to spend inside not fishing!!!!

Doing these updates and such is getting harder. It seems I can see good at a distance, but to sit at a computer and type out a short article has become quite a chore. I never was a really good typist, but now without spell check, I can’t type my name. Anyway enough of my whining, I just wanted to sort of update everyone and let you know what is happening.

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU AND YOURS!!!
