Actually, according the website from which you swiped the photograph, which is about Brown vs The Board of Education of Topeka, its Kansan honor at it's finest. This should come as no surprise to anyone of any real education in American history. American segregation should always be especially associated with the Midwest. The truth is that the South has always been the least segregated part of the country.
I believe it was George Wallace who said, “I draw the line in the dust and toss the gauntlet before the feet of tyranny, and I say segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever.”
The history books are wrong and he was in fact from the mid-west.
I have the SCV-TN tag on my 996.
both my wife and I have beaucoup CSA ancestry
we still take the kids to place wreaths and whatnot given where we live
i even insist my kids respect dead Federals too. ..except for a few
I dunno, maybe cause they have skin bigotry in the game bro.
No, it’s because he’s soft on many social issues from abortion to Islam.
Just look at his historical posts.
But aside from all that he’s great.
LOL..they are squirming on their own petard
Truth is unimportant to the South Makes Me Angry For Personal Reasons club here.
What does the “Honorable MAMA'S BABY, DADDY'S MAYBE Non-Sequitur” bring upon us common folks today?
Rendition? We are in continued celebration of our heroes and pledge ourselves against you and yours.
Lost Causer? Better than being a submissive B!tch. Just because you and your “Love Boutique, Big Governmental, Mattress Back Friends” like the taste of the federal boot; nevertheless don't expect others to share in the disgrace.
Well, my immediate family plus two older aunts who moved to be close by are all that’s here.
The other 100 plus in my clan are still down there with you which will always be home for me....Prep-Ole Miss...long ago.
My great X4 grandpa was Pappy Tom Sullivan of Smith County ..me and another 1500 folks today..lol
I live now in Williamson county on the old Dawes Plantation remains just a hair from the old Harrison House of Battle of Franklin fame....I can see Carnton too from the hilltop behind my home....and Winstead and Breezy hills are about 800 yards to my northwest ...if you know much about the battle
For the first time since I left Jackson for good 28 years ago I feel at home more or less. But I still go down there a lot...several times per year.
You're trying to be insulting, aren't you?
Rendition? We are in continued celebration of our heroes and pledge ourselves against you and yours.
Then your heroes are poorly served by the low quality of their supporters.
Lost Causer? Better than being a submissive B!tch. Just because you and your Love Boutique, Big Governmental, Mattress Back Friends like the taste of the federal boot; nevertheless don't expect others to share in the disgrace.
Yadda, yadda, yadda. Blah, blah, blah. Typical incoherent Idabilly post. You really need to wipe the foam off your mouth and calm down.
Bubba hoe temp - spawn of Troll (ns)
I’M A REB TROLLING FREEPER
or, The Ballad of NonSensical and his spawn, BubbaHoeTemp
Oh, Im a Reb Trolling Freeper, now thats just what I am.
I sit at my computer and type out loads of spam.
I spout my revisionist history just like I learned in screwl.
I dont need no facts cuz Im just a government tool.
I hates the Stars and Bars and I want it to be banned.
I only want freedom for my politically correct clan.
I waits for Rebs to post so I can shout out my cat-calls
Id face them down in person but I just dont have the balls.
I hates all things about the South Ive said it many times
I secretly fell guilty because of my ancestors crimes.
The Rebs will never know it because Ive been brain washed
And everything but trolling about me has been squashed.
The Rebs made us look stupid on every battle field
They showed up ill equipped and my ancestors were killed.
But I will not admit this, the facts are on my side
Or at least the ones I make up since my honesty has died.
Im stuck inside the four walls of this facility.
Theyll never let me out because of my low mental faculties.
But as long as I have my computer and Freeper log in ID
Ill keep posting lies and venom for all eternity.
I love being a member of the “Lost Cause”. What they forget is that the “cause” was about freedom. Rather be a “Lost Causer” than a “Found Socialist.” But that’s just me.
It is funny that their supposed insult is really a constant reminder that our cause was about freedom. That they are so clueless is not surprising.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Bubba Ho-Tep. But in this case it also points out a total lack of creativity on the part of the Lost Cause brigade.
Damn it. There you go resorting to facts. They don’t care about no stinkin’ facts. It’s all about the hate, man.
That's the best you can do? Why I'd expected more from you, given the rabid level of most of your responses.
I like it, but I think it should say something about blogging in their mom’s basement.
As a black man once told me, “In the north the white people tell me we are equals but flee from their neighborhoods when a black family moves in and they call me nigger when they think I can’t hear. In the South we live in the same neighborhoods and if somebody doesn’t like me they tell me to my face. But when they say that they don’t like me it seldom has anything to do with my race. I will never live in the north again.”
I'm sure that Major Innes Randolph would be equally flattered and as unimpressed by your spawns creativity.
Indeed it is, had you taken the effort to actually look into the matter. Brown v. Board of Ed was actually Brown v. Topeka Board of Education, et.al. It was a grouping of similar cases from Kansas, South Carolina, Delaware, D.C. and Virginia. And the interesting part in all of this is what happened after Brown. By the time the Supreme Court handed down their decision, the Topeka School System was already well on their way to implementing an integration plan that fully complied with the court's finding. In the Virginia case, Davis v. County School Board of Prince Edward County, the Board of Supervisors for Prince Edward County refused to appropriate any funds for the County School Board for the period 1959-1964, effectively closing the public schools rather than integrate them. In the South Carolina case, Briggs v. Elliott, a three judge panel had voted two to one to uphold segregation. The lone dissenting vote, Judge J. Waite Warring, was driven from the state for his vote supporting segregation. In any event it took years for integration to finally come. In the D.C. case, Bolling v. C. Melvin Sharpe, Southern congressmen and senators did all they could to hinder the implementation of the Brown ruling. And in the Delaware case, Belton v. Gebhart, again it took years before the order was implemented.
So on the one hand you have a Yankee state of Kansas fully implementing the ruling in a timely manner and on the other hand you have Southern states and Southern leaders doing everything in their power up to and including doing away with the schools altogether to keep from integrating. And the reaction elsewhere in the South is noteworthy as well. In Virginia, Senator Harry F. Byrd, Sr. organized the Massive Resistance movement that included the closing of schools rather than desegregating them. In 1957, Arkansas Governor Orval Faubus called out his state's National Guard to block black students' entry to Little Rock High School. In Florida the legislature passed an Interposition Resolution in 1957 denouncing the decision and declaring it null and void. (Another attempt at nullification it seems). And of course in 1963, Alabama Gov. George Wallace personally blocked the door to Foster Auditorium at the University of Alabama to prevent the enrollment of two black students.
Southern honor at its finest indeed.
The cheap shots that bubba hoe temp has been taking at stand watie, who is not here to defend himself, continues to prove the cowardice and total lack of honor of these yankee piles of buzzard crap.
Well for two-thirds of your population at any rate.
Rather be a Lost Causer than a Found Socialist. But thats just me.
Most amusing, considering the socialistic tendencies of Jeff Davis' confederacy.
That they are so clueless is not surprising.
Funny. We've reached the same conclusion about all y'all.
And no doubt you agree completely with the ideas Randolph expressed in his poem?
submission is their middle name
Non-sense - is after all ‘Piss Proud’!
“Well for two-thirds of your population at any rate.”
Just as it was under the United States. No point made there.
“Most amusing, considering the socialistic tendencies of Jeff Davis’ confederacy.”
But not nearly as amusing as forgetting to compare it to Lincoln’s dictatorship. No point made there.
“Funny. We’ve reached the same conclusion about all y’all.”
It is funny. People with no intellectual honesty reaching conclusions. Of course, the conclusions reached are indicative of the lack of that dishonesty. No point made there. Not even any sense made.
I don’t know why you continue to post things that are, well, pointless.
Said by the man who had not the courtesy to ping the person he's lamely attemtping to insult...
But honesty is not a Southron hallmark it seems. You claim your cause was for 'freedom'. Let's be honest, it was for the freedom to continue to enslave others and the freedom to take your institution of slavery to every corner of the country that instigated your rebellion.
But not nearly as amusing as forgetting to compare it to Lincolns dictatorship. No point made there.
However an honest comparison of Lincoln's actions and Davis' would show that the true tyrant ruled south of the Potomac and not north. Davis abused his constitution and trampled on freedoms and states rights in ways that Lincoln would never have contemplated.
People with no intellectual honesty reaching conclusions.
And yet you continue to try.
I dont know why you continue to post things that are, well, pointless.
I could easily ask the same about you.
More delusional revisionism from the Master Delusionist, known hypocrite and pathalogical liar.
Davis supported a limited government, federalism, and an expansionist foreign policy (go west young man). Jefferson Davis was a statesman, a graduate of West Point, a US congressman, US senator and Secretary of War; all in all, a far more interesting and honorable man than the slippery lawyer from Illinois.
You are so incredebly clever!!
You want me to say 'Yes!Yes!' so that you can point your pudgy finger at the screen and shout (to no one in particular) "See!! I told the world in post #66 of this thread that cowboyway 'hates the United States'!!"
You are so miserably pathetic............
Just like you he's always here, posting his insults, nonsense and lies.
Stand, on the other hand, is not here, in case you haven't noticed.
Do you really want to play this game? Because I can come up with far more pictures of southern segregation than you can northern. By the way, the state in this picture is Montana.
Davis supported a limited government, federalism, and an expansionist foreign policy (go west young man).
Which is, of course, why he refused to staff the third branch of government, seized control of the milita from the states, nationalized industries like textile and salt and liquor, instituted an income tax and proposed rates that were confiscatory in nature, seized a percentage of private farm produce without compensation 'for the war effort', forced private ship owners to reserve part of their cargo space without compensation for government shipments 'for the war effort', levied slave labor without compensating the owners 'for the war effort', suspended habeas corpus miles from the battlefield, jailed thousands without charges, all because he was a "limited government federalist". Thomas Jefferson would puke at the idea of being linked with a fraud like Davis.
...a far more interesting and honorable man than the slippery lawyer from Illinois.
As the Southron myth machine would have us believe. The truth is much different. And is, apparently, a foreign concept to the rebel horde.
Better than the last time you tried your hand at it, but you still need to work on the meter. I give it a C-.
Then how about commenting on the current leadership of the SCV?
Yes you are.
“Let’s be honest, it was for the freedom to continue to enslave others and the freedom to take your institution of slavery to every corner of the country that instigated your rebellion.”
I’m always honest. Glad to see you want to start. But you are wrong. The South had NO desire to force slavery in ANY state where it did not exist. Your statement is wrong. Period.
“However an honest comparison of Lincoln’s actions and Davis’ would show that the true tyrant ruled south of the Potomac and not north. Davis abused his constitution and trampled on freedoms and states rights in ways that Lincoln would never have contemplated.”
LOL! The ultimate difference being, even if that were true, that the Confederate states could LEAVE Davis any time. Which makes your whole premise wrong, again.
“And yet you continue to try...” to reason with them. And I admit, it is a failing.
“I could easily ask the same about you. “
But I would be asking from a documented background of your failures, while your attempts to discredit me are pathetic Pee Wee Herman come backs.
Gosh, you are just too clever for me, aren't you? </sarcasm>
You're doing a fine job of filling in Watie's slot as the lead foaming-at-the-mouth neo-confederate loon around here. Now you just need to make up some titles for reference books.
Under the Dred Scott decision they had that right regardless of local state laws. And their desire was to retain the right take slavery to any territory they wanted. I should have been more clear.
The ultimate difference being, even if that were true, that the Confederate states could LEAVE Davis any time.
A claim that, of course, can never be proven or disproven. However, considering the way Davis trampled the rights of the states it'd be hard to see him allowing them to leave.
The truth as you know it is limited to the fuzzy constructs of your own mind with absolutely no basis in reality.
