Well it seems that Al Mackey and some of his crew are about to ruin their jeans over a cherry-picked statement a student made. See Mackey’s and his lackeys comments here— https://studycivilwar.wordpress.com/2015/02/15/austin-teenager-more-trustworthy-than-adult-scv-liar/#comments .
It seems some teenager in Austin, picked this quote from the Texas SECESSION DECLARATION “Based upon the unnatural feeling of hostility to these Southern States and their beneficent and patriarchal system of African slavery, proclaiming the debasing doctrine of the equality of all men, irrespective of race or color — a doctrine at war with nature, in opposition to the experience of mankind, and in violation of the plainest revelations of the Divine Law.” Jacob adds, “As if that’s a bad thing.”
First of all I cannot believe that anyone would offer any secession document as proof positive the war was about slavery. Of course we just say Corey Meyer do the same thing. Folks these documents are just what they say they are SECESSION DOCUMENTS, nothing more. Second, why just take a portion of a document and use it as your proof. What does one do with the rest of the document, just throw it away?
Hummm I wonder what Mackey would have said if he had picked this statement from the Texas doc? They have refused to vote appropriations for protecting Texas against ruthless savages, for the sole reason that she is a slave-holding State.
Would that have made the war about the Indians raids?
The rest of Mackey’s article is just trash. Traitors, liars etc., the usual insults. Turns out Mackey is the only liar when he says this kid is well versed in history. Fact is the kid is just parroting what some biased teacher has told him.
Gee Mackey just think, this kid knows as little as you!!!!!!!!
