The Confederate Flag: A Cornerstone of White Supremacy

well Rob baker is at it again— trolling the web , looking for articles SOMEONE else wrote to support his hate everything Confederate agenda. I suppose he engages in this activity because he just doesn’t have the facts to support his argument. Let’s take a look at his newest piece of hate filled trash at

https://historicstruggle.wordpress.com/2015/06/29/the-confederate-flag-a-cornerstone-of-white-supremacy/

Baker first starts off with a link reference to Bruce Levine, a J. G. Randall Distinguished Professor of History at the University of Illinois. We know he is not bigoted since in his very first sentence he comes out with racism. Sure sign of an unbiased teacher. Not much left to say there.

Next Baker jumps to Kevin Levin’s blog. No need to waste time on that site, Levin’s hate for the Confederacy is well documented on his blog. May I suggest the reader go to this blog , which has documented Levin’s hate and read it for yourself —-

http://mybacksass.blogspot.com/2015/06/outlasting-tsunami.html

Type “Levin” in the search box found in the left hand column.

At any rate it seems that Levin is ranting and raving about Alexander Stephens “Cornerstone Speech.” I for one am not going to either defend or condemn this speech> I am simply going to let the reader decide for himself if he chooses to believe Levin’s cherry picked quote or not. The entire speech can be found here http://civilwarcauses.org/corner.htm

As you read the speech please pay particular attention to the notes at the very top and bottom of the page. That should give you an idea of how accurate this speech really is and just how much trust you can put into Levin and baker telling the WHOLE truth.

You can read Stephen’s speech “What I Really Said” at http://www.flatfenders.com/SCV/Heritage%20Defense_files/Cornerstone.htm

Of course bakers makes a claim to discredit these documents, but he never discredits the Cornerstone. Wonder why that is? he even tries to get ahead of the game by posting the “Lincoln was a racist” remark. No need to address that at this time. As I said draw you own conclusion, but at least know the whole story.

As baker goes through his cherry picked blog trash. he attempts to blame all sorts of hate and racism on the Confederacy. he never once mentions that the US Constitution protected slavery, The 3th Amendment would have made slavery a permanent institution, West Virginia came into the Union as a slave state and the Emancipation Proclamation only freed the slaves of rebels not the loyal slave owner.

In short Baker only posts the”facts” that support his agenda not the whole truth. Typical.

The Confederate Flag Debate: A Few Good Sources

Rob Baker has made a post as titled above for a dew good sources. A couple of the names mentioned I do not recognize, but I do know that Andy hall, and Kevin Levin are biased in their views and highly regulate the opposing post that are posted to their blogs. Eric Forner I have never read anything good about him, here is a link article that I think is worth reading– http://historyhalf.com/eric-foner-preaches-marxism-on-campus/

It sorta gives an idea of his views.

Tony Horwitz has an article here http://talkingpointsmemo.com/cafe/how-south-lost-the-civil-war-won-narrative-confederate-flag in which he states gen. N. B. Forrest is the founder of the KKK. Oh well so much for historical truth.

Nicholas Kristof at http://www.nytimes.com/2015/06/25/opinion/tearing-down-the-confederate-flag-is-just-a-start.html?_r=0 just much of the same bigotry and hate and fault7y history. Nothing new there

EUAN HAGUE
http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2015/04/civil-war-american-south-still-loves-confederacy-116771.html#.VY1KnGdFDL9 HHHHHoooooo Hummmmm just more bigotry and hate.

Easy to see why Hall, Baker, and Levin chose these articles, they are hate filled bigoted, historically inaccurate articles that support the agenda of more hate and bigotry.

Let’s look at bakers comments. One poster, Ya era hora. says: I’ve been curious about their devolution, but I’ll wait for them to come here to bitch about how oppressed they are because they’re giant wastes of space…

We ya, I will give you the opportunity to debate me in a civil manner, no insults just facts. Do you have what it takes.

Spray Paint, Monuments, and Conversation

What starts out as a good article by Al Mackey “Spray Paint, Monuments, and Conversation” ends up just being another hate filled rant by an idiot.

Mackey starts out by pointing out it is not proper to deface statues and so forth is you want to make a protest. I agree with him on that. Mackey also points out these protesters should learn how to spell “matter” as in Black Live Matter. I also agree with him on that and I also suggest get some education in history so that you don’t across as a bunch of ignorant, prejudiced thugs, which you really are. these are excellent points by Mackey. Then he drops at near the goal line with this statement–

His statement — I’m also uncomfortable with honoring treason and fighting for slavery on government property,

See here is the thing, Mackey cannot prove treason or prove the South was fighting for slavery. These are just the arguments of a bigot.
