Skip to comments.The Myth of Northern Innocence
Posted on 12/03/2012 4:55:51 PM PST by John S Mosby
Burly-and-bearded country singer Trace Adkins ruffled all the usual feathers and bruised all the usual feelings when he dared to wear a Confederate battle flag earpiece in full view of gasping national TV viewers while singing The Christmas Song in the Yankee stronghold of Rockefeller Center on November 28.
Adkins, who belches out such venerable neo-country chestnuts as Honky Tonk Badonkadonk and Brown Chicken, Brown Cow, was subjected to the predictably rage-stroking vilification that comes whenever anyone suggests that the American South has ever been anything beyond a rancid cultural cesspool of lynching, incest, bestiality, racism, toothlessness, retardation, and yes, racism, even though I said it twice.

You appear to be another one of those lost causers who conflate and confuse current conditions to 150 year old history. So, are you suggesting that the same sort of traitorous bastards who turned their backs on their country and their commitments are or should be the ones who save us from the progressives this time around?
Good point. "Lost causes" look conservative to people because they lost. People seem to think history would have stopped where it was if the losing side had won. But if they'd won, they'd have reshaped history themselves. And people -- not so very different from those complaining her and now about the union victory a century and a half ago -- would be complaining about how everything went to blazes when the union and Constitution collapsed and we lost George Washington's republic to secession mania.
If you use the bible to talk about “slavery” you had jolly well better use the term in the same sense the bible did. That ain’t self righteousness; that’s sense.
Slavery is slavery. That, too, is sense.
That is nonsense if you use the first term and second term by different definitions.
Why are you dancing around in this vain, transparent attempt to deny the obvious?
The only lost cause I lament about is the one the Founders started, and the continual reduction of the original intent, driven by revisionists of every stripe and every agenda, but particularly the NWO Progressive one that began post WBTS.
IF you want to call the same people who CREATED this country traitorous bastards, then you can live with that version of history. Not one was convicted of treason, and the only ones who were hung (aside from an unfortunate Swiss-born CSA officer- a foreigner that is), were the assassination conspirators (with a good bit of recently researched info that Sec. Stanton and his band of Reconstruction Radical repubs were behind killing Lincoln— who would have been much more lenient on the South, as Goad’s observations support. Please don’t forget that Lincoln’s mother, Nancy Hanks, was pure Southern). Who IS w being suggested? Constitutionalists, who support the original Founders intent and a distinct cultural group. They are not composed of pseudo conservative Statist RINOs machine party politicians who devolved from the repub party of Lincoln to today.
Might add that it is just as specious to call the democrats the party of slavery. Neither party is the same as 150 years ago, once the Progressive agenda took over and the Establishment (all hail fellow well met— you know, like the loser Alf Landon) became the Statist norm with an agenda that has had little to do with the sovereign country of the USA, and manipulated by an elite crew of extra sovereign world government types. The rise of European sovereignty is a harbinger of what is happening to us, expressed as a State’s sovereignty— we are NOT paying for this federal monster.
There is far more blatant organized bigotry against blacks in the North (all academic political contortions aside), and it is essential for the Northern liberals to cover that up with continual “tut-tuts” against expressed Southern heritage which is expressed along with frank patriotism for the US. They need to have “superior” feelings so essential to Progressives who know better than our Founders.
Surely it must be maddening for the Statist police of the coming state being planned to figure out who is whom as they continue to eliminate our rights in their comfortable gubmint jobs (all equal opportunity hires— to include sharia muslims). The people at the top are criminal, and one in particular. Pravda is correct- how ironic.
I have no idea where you got that in anything I (or anyone else here) posted.
From your prior post to me, #41: “So, are you suggesting that the same sort of traitorous bastards who turned their backs on their country....” That’s where I got that, OK.
To disabuse you of some ignorant righteous indignation of the same “tut-tut” variety discussed in this thread:
The colonies of Virginia, the Carolinas and Georgia were all later Southern states. Those colonies produced Founding Fathers who created the US, who had descendants and these descendants seceded from the US, in consultation with their state legislatures (in which many,if not most were in a leadership role) based on their understanding of the Constitution.
A few examples: the Lees of Virginia (all of them- one a step grandson of George Washington), President John Tyler(who fought secession until there was no choice), John B. Gordon (GA),Lt. Col. Waller Patton and his brother Col George S. Patton (yes, the grandfather of Gen. George S. Patton (all descendants of Rev. War Gen’l Hugh Mercer, Washington’s right hand man)and Vice Pres. John Breckinridge. ALL of these descendants of our Founders seceded from the US. Traitorous bastards, yeah, right. PC history must have glossed over who they were.
There were also in Northern states, descendants of Founders and Framers who sided with the South in its secession, again based on an understanding of the Constitution that most in the US had. These were mostly not in on the greedy railroad and West expansion cartels.
All of these people seceded in much the same understanding of the Constitution that Federalist delegates from Massachusetts, Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island had when in 1814, they threatened to secede in their opposition to the War of 1812, intending to make a separate peace with Britain. Presaging the coming divide of North from South.
The truth of Lincoln is pretty well known with all his inconvenient truths and ludicrous portrayals in Hollywood. For obamao and his minions to try to compare him to Lincoln is beyond laughable, and at the same time indicative of the deviousness of these lying social justice marxists. Still working the white guilt vote, to continue the racial divide and set back race relations 50 years. It is an old communist tactic in the US- no surprise in sychrony with leftie Hollywood- and disgusting. We cannot have a pretender king pretending to be an emancipator while systematically destroying our Constitutional Republic. The South will definitely not have it.
Yep, traitorous bastards.
