    Be prepared to fall off the face of the Earth.

    Also, take note who in your neighborhood goes outside with a candle at 10pm EST. You may want to distance yourself from them going forward.

    The Confederate Generals John Hunt Morgan and John C. Breckenridge are both outside the old courthouse in Lexington. They first wanted to remove them completely, but they have to have approval from the Kentucky Military Heritage Commission and that was not going to be forthcoming, so now they are proposing to move them to Veterans Park. If they do not get unanimous approval from the Commission the statues can't be moved.

    A Government In Rebellion

    The USA is a failed state. It was charged at its founding to protect and defend the borders. Fail. It was charged with securing the rule of law. Fail. It was charged with securing the right of the people to be secure in their papers and effects. Fail. It was charged with protecting a citizens right to a fair trial, a thing lost in the current judicial system of trumped up charges and plea bargains. Fail. It was charged with requiring the popularly elected House of Representatives with making all legislation, that does not exist where 90% of all new legislation is considered "rules" and "regulations" and is originated and passed in committees of bureaucracies. Fail.

    There is no area in which one might look where the language and intent of the Constitution is honored. This is more than just a problem, it is indicative of a failed political state. That there are those who benefit from this dysfunction is a fact, but it is not indicative of a functioning government. It is a government evolving from its intent to the opposite of its intent. Yes, it functions, but not to its purpose, which is to say if a tire is blown, with a big hole in it, it might still be used as a child's swing, but it no longer functions to its purpose.

    The only purpose of the United States government is to deal with foreign powers, including native Indian tribes, settle disputes between the states and provide for the common defense. There are a few other responsibilities, but small in nature compared to those. It was not intended to have a say in every day activities of the people, to take a piece of every bit of commerce engaged in throughout the states. It was not intended to be the last say in every dispute. It was not intended to decide what cultural mores would be in effect in every state in the land. It certainly was not intended to produce government agencies with the ability to kill citizens with impunity at the behest of political officeholders. All of this and more is taking place. Why?

    The United States Government is devolving from a government largely controlled by the population to a government bent on control of the population. That is a failure and until the American people come to understand that this is a government that has failed in every aspect of its charter, it will continue to devolve. There is no reconciliation available to a government impervious to the will of the people. This is what is on display when the president is attacked for pursuing the goals for which he was elected. It is a governmental rejection of the will of the people. And, since the government is only empowered by the consent of the governed, it is a government in rebellion against the people.

    The people, therefore, are rightly empowered to rebel against the government. With the ultimate and intentional subversion of the will of the people through impeachment and removal of individuals given the consent to govern, the government bureaucracies will be in open rebellion against the people, a condition encouraged and supported in all collectivist governments, but wholly intolerable to those who claim to be a REPUBLIC.

    The Coming Violence of the Left

    Posted on August 12, 2017

    In my AmRen wrap-up about AntiFa, I noted that it was the women on the Left with the blood lust. The mentally disturbed woman I highlighted is a good example. She goes on social media with hysteric rants about imaginary violence, in an effort to get her fellow wackos to do something crazy. Her claims about gun fire and riots at American Renaissance were entirely false, but clearly she was hoping her tweets would get her coreligionists into a violent mood. Her life is dedicated to bringing about bloodshed.

    Further to that, this was floating around on social media yesterday in the run-up to the big rally in Charlottesville. Every claim in it is false. Mike Enoch has been lecturing people for weeks about the need to avoid violence and not bring weapons The organizers have developed a good relationship with the local police department so that the cops will protect the attendees from the Antifa. The cops spent most of Friday clearing weapons from the park that Antifa has been hiding there in advance of the rally.

    Vox Day has this post up on the same topic. He links to a mentally disturbed woman making claims about the rally, which are patently false. She claims to be a “behavior scientist” which is a clue that she is most likely just a cat lady. A look at her twitter feed reveals that she spends her days harassing people on twitter, in an effort to draw attention to herself. Steve Sailer often jokes that modern feminism is just a project for homely women to get the attention of males. Caroline Zero is proof of that.

    Again, the trend you see with this cargo cult is that it is women out front, trying to push for violence and bloodshed. This is similar to what happened in the radical groups of the 60’s and 70’s. Many of the most violent members of the Black Panthers were women. The Weather Underground was led by a women, Bernardine Dohrn. The radicalism of the 1960’s was initially led by males, but in time women took over and it became more violent and less coherent. Once again, the arrival of SJW’s signals the end phase.

    There’s something else going on today. Antifa is largely a cargo cult. They dress up like radicals and perform public events like the radicals of 50 years ago, all in the hope that the past will become the present. Unlike the past, there’s no reactionary counter to the modern Progressive. No one is putting fire hoses on Lefty or having the cops break up Antifa’s protests. The people in charge are funding groups like Antifa. The government of Charlottesville is backing nutjobs like Caroline Zero.

    As Eric Hoffer pointed out, mass movements need an enemy and the Left has always had the struggle as an essential element of their identity. It’s why they have invented things like institutional racism and white privilege. Lacking anything resembling actual racism in modern America, and faced with a tsunami of anti-white sermonizing, they have been forced to invent a boogeyman. Like shamans of the past, the modern Left warns about evil spirits, but now they are called unconscious bias and extremism.

    Similarly, and you see it in that Medium post linked by Vox, the Left is now trying to justify their move to violence. It is evident in the Antifa rants and that post claiming the alt-right is arming up for the rally. The Left wants to start murdering people, but they cannot find a justification, so they are starting to invent reasons. Caroline Zero is adding a veneer of 1970’s pop psychology to her calls for violence, but she is simply trying to invent a suitable stand-in for Bull Connor and the truncheon wielding riot police.

    The incoherent and random violence of the 70’s was mostly due to dis-confirmation. The counter-culture did not usher in the age of peace, love and understanding. Instead it decayed into drug use and degeneracy. Something similar is happening here. The election of Obama convinced many on the Left that the end times were upon us. The righteous would be carried to the promised land, and most important, the bad whites would be chased from the land, either sent into exile or reduced to the status of untouchables.

    That obviously did not happen, which is why the Left is so unhinged. More important though, their attempt at a kill shot by putting Obama in the White House has ignited a genuine counter revolution. For fifty years the Left has faced nothing more than token resistance from “their friends on the Right” but now they are seeing a true opposition forming up. The Buckley Right embraced Progressive morality, with slightly different ends, while the alt-right rejects Progressive morality in its entirety.This is the result.

    For people like Caroline Zero and Lacy MacAuley, this is reason enough to start murdering people. To them, this parade is violence because it is the nullification of their movement, which is the nullification of them. Their entire identity is now defined by their largely imaginary struggle against the mysterious forces of institutional racism, white privilege and invisible Hitlers. To them, that parade is the manifestation of evil, so they will resort to any means necessary to stop it.

    Lurker knocked it out of the ballpark. Every immediate action item
    for Whites is covered.
    I would have stated it somewhat differently, but it is spot on.

    1. The major cities in the FUSA are not controlled by the
    White race. If you doubt this statement, just get yourself
    a good police scanner, and listen often,
    especially on Friday and Saturday nights.
    You will then understand the truth of this statement.

    Therefore, if you are White, you need to be toting your tail
    out of the cities, and right now.
    When the festivities kick off, which could be just about
    anytime now, you will be the minority, and there will be
    no quarter for you and your family.
    We are talking about your physical life here.

    As stated previously many times, the critical thresholds
    for population demographics are as follows:

    1. White race must be at least 70 percent of the total
    population demographic, in order for there to be any
    simblance of a peaceful life, in the particular
    geographical area. In my current AO, Whites are 85 percent,
    Africans are 8 percent. It has so far been very peaceful here
    and even at the local Walmart it is peaceful.

    2. African race must be no larger than 20 percent of the total
    population demographic, as they will always exert twice
    their population demographic. A 25 percent African
    population demographic, will for all intents and purposes,
    control the local government in that particular
    geographical area. Even a few percentages less than
    20 percent, is an indication to standby to move out,
    as the African population demographic is always
    going to be increasing.
    I have researched this fact many many times,
    and knowing the African population demograhic
    of a specific area, and then see the US government
    constantly under report the African population demographic.
    IMHO, the African population demographic in the FUSA
    is at least 20 percent, perhaps even 25 percent.
    In some areas obviously there are more,
    and in some areas there are less, however the overall
    African population demographic is way understated
    by the US government.

    The great website, city-data provided the needed info
    for Charlottesville VA, and it was as I had expected.
    Alt-right should have chosen another city to make
    their stand, which is IMHO going to be futile.
    I expect all of the Southern Heritage monuments to
    eventually be removed. Demographics is key, and folks
    the demographics are not in favour of the White race,
    which for all intents and purposes, will be extinct
    in another 100 years. The Africans know the future
    is theirs(4.5 Billion on planet Earth by 2100),
    and so does the various governments worldwide.
    They see the handwriting on the wall,
    and they are simply responding to it.

    The city-data for Charlottesville VA

    White alone 65.4 percent - always will be decreasing
    Black alone 19.2 percent - always will be increasing

    As you can see, both demographics are very determintal
    to the White race.

    3. You can never have enough guns and Ammo.
    Long range, medium range, and close in range
    rifles and shotguns, and side arms of several calibers.

    Too bad the White race cannot simply just load up,
    and leave planet Earth on rocket ships for another planet.

    There was a movie, that came out in 1951 called,
    When Worlds Collide. At the end of the movie,
    the rocket ship takes off towards the new planet.
    I often say thats the White race leaving planet Earth,
    going to a planet where there are only White people.

    Mankind reached its pinnacle with the White race,
    and now we are witnessing the destruction world wide,
    as the White race has started is decent into oblivion.

    I only state the truth, and wish that it was otherwise,
    as there are good and decent people of all races,
    but not enough to stop what is coming.

    Interesting assessment, and I agree. Here's a question though: Is liberalism a symptom or the cause of this devolution?

    Please! Stay this time!
    It is good to see your handle and your words!
    Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country!

    Oh, and regarding the Confederate monuments: the growing cry on Twitter is to pull them all down and replace them with statues of Horst...er, Heather Heyer.
    "Why not stay awake now? Who wants to sleep now with so much happening, so much to see? Life used to be dull you see...and you don't have to sleep alone, you don't even have to sleep at all; and so, all you have to do is show the stick to the dog now and then and say, 'Thank God for nothing.'"

    History on Wes Bellamy

    http://www.richmond.com/news/virgini...ac15e6c6a.html

    CHARLOTTESVILLE — Charlottesville City Councilor Wes Bellamy is facing calls to be removed from his job and other public positions he holds after a local author’s blog featured tweets attributed to Bellamy that some consider racist and misogynistic.

    The tweets show Bellamy claiming that he hates black people who “act white” or “talk white,” and considers white women to be the “devil.”

    Most of the tweets appear to have been written between 2009 to 2014.

    According to his Twitter account, Bellamy, who often tweets a few dozen times a day, created his account in April 2009. Since then, he has sent approximately 123,000 of the 140-character-max posts on the social media platform.

    Other tweets published on the blog post written by author Jason Kessler show Bellamy, 30, saying that women often lie about the amount of men they have sex with and that he hates “seeing White people in Orangeburg,” the South Carolina community where he attended college.

    In a statement sent Sunday evening, Bellamy, a first-year councilor, said he is sorry for having sent those tweets.

    “I sincerely apologize for the inappropriate things I posted to social media many years ago,” the statement said. “I’m learning to be a better man, community leader, educator, public servant and overall person. Since then, I’ve worked every day to become a better version of myself.”

    “There are issues that need to be brought to light and dealt with. Equality in areas such as gender, sexual orientation and race need to be discussed,” he said. “I’ve convened some of those conversations, (but) that does not mean that I’m exempt from any of them, far from it.”

    According to a biography on the city’s website, Bellamy, who is originally from Atlanta, moved to Charlottesville in 2009. After failing to be elected to the council in 2013, losing by just five votes, he was the top vote-getter in last year’s election.

    In addition to serving on the City Council, he is an appointed member of the Virginia Board of Education and a computer science teacher at Albemarle High School.

    He also is active with a number of community organizations, including serving as president of the 100 Black Men of Central Virginia, the Young Black Professional Network of Charlottesville and the Charlottesville/Albemarle Alliance of Black School Educators.

    Kessler argues on his blog post that Bellamy routinely has been creating divisions in the community by dedicating himself “almost exclusively to his Afrocentric racial agenda, running roughshod over the effete white liberals making up the Charlottesville Democratic Party.”

    Pointing to a number of recent controversies in the community, such as the movement to remove the city’s Confederate statues and Bellamy’s call for a boycott of a local restaurant owned by a University of Virginia lecturer who recently wrote on social media that the Black Lives Matter movement is racist, comparing it to the Ku Klux Klan, Kessler said he looked into Bellamy’s Twitter posts for “evidence of anti-white bias.”

    Kessler, who wrote last year on his blog that he is “pro-free speech, anti-affirmative action, anti-cultural Marxist and pro-equality,” among other things, declined an interview request Sunday. Kessler’s social media accounts often reference the “alt-right,” a right-wing movement that rejects mainstream conservatism.

    Recently, various institutions and civil rights organizations have condemned the movement, alleging that its supporters are often anti-Semitic, white ethno-nationalists who oppose feminism, refugee resettlement and multiculturalism.

    Last week, prior to publishing his blog post, Kessler wrote on his Facebook that he is thinking about running for the City Council to “protect” the Confederate statues and “curtail institutional racial discrimination (i.e. affirmative action).”

    He also said he wishes to “protect the legacy of Thomas Jefferson from social justice warriors.”

    “I’m looking into it even if it’s just to raise awareness of these cultural issues,” Kessler wrote. “I’m prepared to rain down some fire.”

    Kessler’s blog post, which was published Thursday, prompted a number of readers to contact the City Council, the Albemarle County School Board and local media outlets.

    City councilors and county school officials did not reply to requests for comment Sunday.

    “I believe Wes is unfit to serve because a position on the City Council requires an unbiased view of all Charlottesville’s citizens,” said Aaron Wissinger, a city resident.

    Responding to a request for comment, Wissinger said, “one tweet that stood out to me was ‘I don’t like white people so I hate white snow!’ That seems like pretty obvious racism. … I find all of this appalling.”

    An Albemarle High School senior, who wished to remain anonymous for fear of retribution, said he finds it “truly disgusting to know that this man is ‘teaching’ in the school in which I attend.”

    The student added that he hopes the city will “remove him” from the council and that he “hopefully gets fired” from the school.

    On Saturday, the Virginia Flaggers, an organization that has been advocating for the retention of the city’s Confederate memorials, posted a statement on Facebook that called for the council to remove Bellamy from office.

    “Working with fellow councilman Kristin Szakos, Vice-Mayor Bellamy bullied council into spending over $10K to appoint a ‘commission’ to evaluate the statues, based on his false ‘white supremacy’ narrative,’” the statement said. “Bellamy is unfit for office and all attempts to remove or alter our historical monuments must end immediately.”

    Nikuyah Walker, a local social justice activist and member of the Albemarle-Charlottesville NAACP, said she was alarmed by some of Bellamy’s tweets, but argued that they were presented with little to no context, and that they were written a number of years ago when he was still in his early 20s.

    Walker said Bellamy has changed his way of thinking in some regards since then. Echoing a number of Bellamy’s tweets, Walker said he has told her that he thinks it’s wrong for black people to be criticized for “talking white.”

    Questioning why Kessler looked so far back into his account, Walker said, “Wes is a black male. You often face a different level of scrutiny” because of that.

    I would have stated it somewhat differently, but it is spot on.

    1. The major cities in the FUSA are not controlled by the
    White race. If you doubt this statement, just get yourself
    a good police scanner, and listen often,
    especially on Friday and Saturday nights.
    You will then understand the truth of this statement.

    Therefore, if you are White, you need to be toting your tail
    out of the cities, and right now.
    When the festivities kick off, which could be just about
    anytime now, you will be the minority, and there will be
    no quarter for you and your family.
    We are talking about your physical life here.

    As stated previously many times, the critical thresholds
    for population demographics are as follows:

    1. White race must be at least 70 percent of the total
    population demographic, in order for there to be any
    simblance of a peaceful life, in the particular
    geographical area. In my current AO, Whites are 85 percent,
    Africans are 8 percent. It has so far been very peaceful here
    and even at the local Walmart it is peaceful.

    2. African race must be no larger than 20 percent of the total
    population demographic, as they will always exert twice
    their population demographic. A 25 percent African
    population demographic, will for all intents and purposes,
    control the local government in that particular
    geographical area. Even a few percentages less than
    20 percent, is an indication to standby to move out,
    as the African population demographic is always
    going to be increasing.
    I have researched this fact many many times,
    and knowing the African population demograhic
    of a specific area, and then see the US government
    constantly under report the African population demographic.
    IMHO, the African population demographic in the FUSA
    is at least 20 percent, perhaps even 25 percent.
    In some areas obviously there are more,
    and in some areas there are less, however the overall
    African population demographic is way understated
    by the US government.

    The great website, city-data provided the needed info
    for Charlottesville VA, and it was as I had expected.
    Alt-right should have chosen another city to make
    their stand, which is IMHO going to be futile.
    I expect all of the Southern Heritage monuments to
    eventually be removed. Demographics is key, and folks
    the demographics are not in favour of the White race,
    which for all intents and purposes, will be extinct
    in another 100 years. The Africans know the future
    is theirs(4.5 Billion on planet Earth by 2100),
    and so does the various governments worldwide.
    They see the handwriting on the wall,
    and they are simply responding to it.

    The city-data for Charlottesville VA

    White alone 65.4 percent - always will be decreasing
    Black alone 19.2 percent - always will be increasing

    As you can see, both demographics are very determintal
    to the White race.

    3. You can never have enough guns and Ammo.
    Long range, medium range, and close in range
    rifles and shotguns, and side arms of several calibers.

    Too bad the White race cannot simply just load up,
    and leave planet Earth on rocket ships for another planet.

    There was a movie, that came out in 1951 called,
    When Worlds Collide. At the end of the movie,
    the rocket ship takes off towards the new planet.
    I often say thats the White race leaving planet Earth,
    going to a planet where there are only White people.

    Mankind reached its pinnacle with the White race,
    and now we are witnessing the destruction world wide,
    as the White race has started is decent into oblivion.

    I only state the truth, and wish that it was otherwise,
    as there are good and decent people of all races,
    but not enough to stop what is coming.

    73 to all de Nowski.

    Regarads to all deplorables,
    Nowski
    Thank you brother.

    Stay safe.

    The Confederate Generals John Hunt Morgan and John C. Breckenridge are both outside the old courthouse in Lexington.

If they do not get unanimous approval from the Commission the statues can't be moved.

    Here's a link to the whole story:

    4Rivers, thanks for the info, and the link. I am assuming that if the mayor is liberal, that the majority of the city population there in Lexington is as well. I would also assume that the majority of Fayette county is as well.

    Would it also be a safe assumption that most also support moving the statues ?

    Justice Department opens civil-rights investigation into Charlottesville crash

    The Justice Department has opened up a federal investigation into the deadly events in Charlottesville, Va. on Saturday after a car plowed into a crowd of protestors and left one dead.

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Saturday that a federal civil rights investigation into the incident had been opened.

    “The violence and deaths in Charlottesville strike at the heart of American law and justice. When such actions arise from racial bigotry and hatred, they betray our core values and cannot be tolerated," Sessions said in a statement.

    "I have talked with FBI Director Chris Wray, FBI agents on the scene, and law enforcement officials for the state of Virginia. The FBI has been supporting state and local authorities throughout the day. U.S. Attorney Rick Mountcastle has commenced a federal investigation and will have the full support of the Department of Justice. Justice will prevail.”

    The United States Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Virginia and the Richmond Field Office of the FBI also issued a statement confirming the investigation.

    "The Richmond FBI Field Office, the Civil Rights Division and the US Attorney's Office for the Western District of Virginia have opened a civil rights investigation into the circumstances of the deadly vehicular incident that occured earlier Saturday morning. The FBI will collect all available facts and evidence, and as this is an ongoing investigation we are not able to comment further at this time," the statement read.

    A vehicle plowed through a crowd of protesters in Charlottesville, Va. Saturday after police broke up violent clashes between far-right groups and counter-demonstrators.

    The University of Virginia Health System said 20 people were brought to the hospital Saturday afternoon after the car careened into a group of people protesting near a popular pedestrian mall in the college town. One died and the rest were being assessed and treated for injuries.

    Video posted on social media shows a car careening through the crowd as another vehicle rams into its rear bumper before backing away. In other photos and videos posted online Saturday, people can be seen being treated for injuries.
    I am going to take a wild stab here and hypothesize that this is going to be turned into a Gun control Argument by the leftest commies?

    Should not congress as per their past psychological behavior dictates and their infament, I mean infinite wisdom has permitted, pass vehicle/Automobile Control legislation?

    After all if the gun is at fault for violent acts should not the car also be?
    The loss of ethical absolutes has robbed our society of the ability to combat forces that would enslave it.

    Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

    Again let me suggest a piece of "future fiction" - A Desert Called Peace, by Tom Kratman. I suggest finding a used hardback copy as at over 700 pages it's a bit much for a paperback.
    =====================

    https://www.amazon.com/Desert-Called...2649025&sr=1-6

    ===================================

    Five hundred years from now, humankind has found a link to a remarkably Earth-like planet and settled there, dividing -- as humans will -- into dozens of nation-states. The Federated States of Columbia has consolidated power and risen against the oppression of Earth's corrupt Caliphate. But when Salafi madmen bent on a new jihad kill FSC Captain Patrick Hennessey's family in a cowardly attack, they create an enemy that will show even less mercy than they do. A legendary warrior is born: Carrera, the scourge of Salafism. He will forge an army from the decrepit remains of a military in a failing state. He will find those who killed his family. He will destroy them utterly. And he will try like hell to not becoming exactly like the enemy he is fighting. Only when he is finished will there be peace: the peace of an empty wind as it blows across a desert strewn with the bones of Carrera's enemies.

    ANTIFA and BLM are pretextual names for movements better known as Marxist-Communists......

    Via Cousin John



    A friend and fellow SCV & SCV Mechanized Cavalry member named JD Montes posted this and it says better than I could say what I believe to be happening in our country right now. Read his words below:

    .......They pick "low-hanging fruit" causes such as Confederate memorials to incense their base and draw support in preparation for an intentional bait-and-switch. In reality they are Anti-American, anti-liberty, unilateralists, pro-violence, pro-revenge and antithetical to the historical American experience.

    Their goal is cultural revisionism and erasure of history like the NAZI ideology they falsely oppose. They are the modern American "NAZI" movement. Intent on tearing down our great Constitutional- Republic with fake causes intending to rebuild under their communist umbrella of suppression of the people, not freedom for people. They are fakes who will pivot from Confederate memorials to taking down images of US Founding Fathers. They already want to take down President Andrew Jacksons statue in Jacksonville Fl and they have a movement afoot to take down Thomas Jefferson on the Columbia University campus.

    Make no mistake; their soil is Marxism under the disguise of opposing racism and bigotry only to grow cultural and ideological revisionism upon an unsuspecting citizenry. They are like Greek sirens calling people with their trumpets only to mislead them to more evil and insidious anti-americanism.

    Sadly the American MSM is part of that movement; fully lying to the public while plotting their eventual takeover. They cannot take America by force from the outside, so they choose to take America from the inside. US President Abraham Lincoln was right about one thing: "“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” So it is today.

    The ACLU and the and other civil liberty organizations supported yesterday's rally in the name of free speech. The Federal court granted permit to the organizers only to have a city council attempt to force them to move their lawful assembly miles outside of town due to (you guessed it: ANTIFA and BLM dissent). But real liberty, Liberals argue, does not recognize only speech with which you agree. It recognizes and protects that speech. So what have we here?

    We have the suppression of a rally only because of disagreement with their message of keeping the memorials standing while the real "haters" spread their divisive message of tearing down veterans memorials across this land to serve their false intent.

    If history is to record the past, then let it record the past for the good of the future. Should we erase history because it does not comport with our sensitivities, taste or flavor. Maybe we should outlaw all ice cream except chocolate. But frankly taste and opinion are personal. So if sensitivity and opinions are a fluid concept in the liberal mind, why would a political party like Democrats buy into Marxism leading to Communism? Because it suits their political agenda, all the while unknowingly (or maybe knowingly) selling out American ideals of capitalism and individual liberty to movements like ANTIFA and BLM.

    These memorials, these monuments were gifts to Southern states who fought for a cause that was self-preservation. The rally cry of the Marxists is that its all about slavery. But to say that 'slavery' was the primary cause in and of itself is too easy, too simple, too unthinking. Rather a pervasive examination of the American political and economic machine in the early days of this nation is required to truly understand "The Cause". The American War between the states was no more solely about slavery than just being solely about battles and men, but moreso, that slavery was merely a singular subelement of broader reasons of self government and true constitutionalism. That, my friends, is truly American? Where is George Washington when I need him?

    I am not justifying slavery, but I am stating that slavery was not the primary cause of any "civil war". It is but a convenient term given to us by the victors because its sounds moral, holy and worthy in a war that the North was losing until Lincoln's self-reluctant Emancipation Proclamation made it a moral battle. This war was about keeping the Union together at all costs in his eyes. So sound bites, digitized words, photos, and singularly defined negative words do no justice to the history of this nation's greatest internal conflict. It does no justice to the sons, fathers and families that gave the ultimate sacrifice to their state when duty called. These monuments are to dead veterans who fought for their homeland states --- something we today truly understand politically and know little about without deeper examination in a historical context. Frankly, they are all veterans...AMERICAN veterans as declared by the US Congress in the 1950s. They were brothers vs brothers and fathers vs fathers. These memorials should be protected and embraced like the prodigal son; not eschewed and reviled.

    In the end, this isn't about racism or bigotry from an inanimate object standing silently in a park or courthouse lawn. It is about whether this nation will live up to its constitutional principles and ideals of free speech or do we embrace the false and darker path of allowing unilateral opinion to destroy Southern history which is really American history.

    Do we really believe in our Constitution? Or are we just lapdogs for every PC movement that comes along with faux causes disguised in pretty verbiage that really intend to attack our Constitutional form of government under false pretense of defying racism and bigotry?

    So if only one side is allowed to protest...if only one brother in a war is to be revered...if only one mother is allowed to weep for her dead child...if only one father is permitted to honor his lost son at war...if only one side receives just because of past wrongs...if the media relates one opinion and not just the facts...then are BLM, MSM and ANTIFA honesty against Facism? Or are they for it?

    Better yet, are WE for it? If so this social experiment built on individual liberty and freedom...it wont last much longer.

    I say, Herman Goebbels would be proud of these intentionally fake movements.

    As Strudel Nut posted, the NAACP has come out for the removal, but that's a given.

    I'm not from Central Kentucky, so it's hard for me to say whether the majority of Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government County citizens would be for it or not. Their state representatives are split almost even with 8 democrats and 7 republicans, so they still lean to the conservative side for a city as large as they are. My guess is that's the Fayette County people outside of the city proper. Maybe Strudel Nut can give us more insight on this.

    What I see happening in Kentucky mirrors most of the country. We are almost equally divided along conservative/liberal lines. Even in my end of the state, we are having a debate over whether the Confederate Flag can be flown in the Veterans Day Parade by the Son of Confederate Veterans. There's been a pretty big stink over it and it has been decided yet, though I think the leadership already know what they want to do, but don't have the guts to come out and do it.

    It's becoming a fight almost anywhere you look anymore. More and more people are talking about how nasty things have gotten, and more and more I'm hearing people talk about preparing for what's coming. I've pretty much given up hope that we can get through this without a fight/war in this country. I try to believe Patriotic Americans no matter the color or background will be on the winning side again and return this country to the Republic it once was, but we have a hard road ahead of us.

    I just stumbled across this video today. When things start getting rough out there with these asshats trying to screw up what is left of my country, I turn to country music to help me cope. If the commies, berniebots, hillary harridans, soro's suckasses and other assorted vermin want to finally start getting really froggy out there, they had best understand that they may unleash a force that they didn't count on. Look no farther than the "polls" before election day saying that felonious von pantsuit was going to take this election in a cakewalk

    Oops.....didn't work out too good for them did it.

    This country is worth my life, my very small fortune and my sacred honor. Always has been. If she needs it, she has it. Keep our powder dry, but if they want to get stupid, then it shall be so.
    A long national nightmare has ended. Our Republic STILL stands!! The Adults are back in the building. Now we take our Country back, no matter how many special snowflakes have to be melted down to do it. President Trump, you've got the ball. Lets ROCK!!

    The Neo-Nazi may be only a single miscreant carrying a single swastica flag

    Swastika flags can be openly purchased. Dupes or agents provocateur can be hired to carry them and mix with the people someone wants to delegitimize.

    PSYOP 101.... learn to recognize it.

    strudel nut, I hope it does not happen. I hope the "removal fever" stays in Lexington. I really doubt it will spread into EK, at least I hope it doesn't.

    I really don't want to see open conflict down there in Lexington. If you were guessing, what percentages of Pro Removal vs Anti Removal are in Fayette County ? I know that is a tuff question, but what would be your guess ?

    This country is worth my life, my very small fortune and my sacred honor. Always has been. If she needs it, she has it. Keep our powder dry, but if they want to get stupid, then it shall be so.
    Anyone here got some defogging solution for my glasses?
    People are quick to confuse and despise confidence as arrogance but that is common amongst those who have never accomplished anything in their lives and who have always played it safe not willing to risk failure.

    For the Virginia Flaggers, It’s Hate, Not Heritage

    This week the Virginia Flaggers celebrate their five-year anniversary. You may never have heard of this organization, but if you have traveled Virginia’s highways over the past few years you certainly have seen their handiwork. During this time the Flaggers have raised large Confederate battle flags along I-95, I-81, and I-64. In July 2015 the group raised a 30-by-50 foot flag near Danville, Virginia along the I-29 bypass. These flag raisings have been carried out in response to the steps taken by local governments, along with public and private institutions, to remove or re-locate Confederate iconography.

    The organization has enjoyed steady coverage by local media outlets over the last five years, but few reporters have looked closely at Flagger membership or the individuals and organizations with which it has found common cause. Some of these individuals are directly connected with White Nationalist groups such as the League of the South, which openly promote white supremacy. Such a close association blurs the lines between legitimate concerns for the preservation of history and heritage and the racial politics of the present.

    The core of the Virginia Flaggers was organized by Susan Hathaway in 2011 in response to the removal of a Confederate battle flag in front of Confederate Memorial Chapel in Richmond, Virginia, which at one point was part of a soldiers’ home for Confederate veterans. The property is now owned and operated by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA). According to the Flaggers, the Confederate battle flag ought to be celebrated, along with the men who fought under it. Their understanding of the war falls neatly within the confines of the Lost Cause narrative: Slavery had nothing to do with the cause of the war; relations between white and black Southerners were peaceful before the war; the Confederacy fought solely for states’ rights; and African Americans supported the cause in large numbers. According to Hathaway, “As sons and daughters of the South, we have inherited a birthright. Ours is a proud heritage.”

    Early on the Flaggers remained focused on the VMFA by staging weekly protests in front of the chapel, but they quickly expanded their reach across Virginia. In 2012 they protested the opening of the Museum of the Confederacy’s new branch at Appomattox for refusing to fly the battle flag outside of the building, even though the museum preserves and exhibits one of the largest collection of wartime flags inside. Beginning in 2013 their focus shifted to Lexington, where the city council was deciding whether to discontinue the practice of allowing the display of Confederate flags on city-owned light poles for the annual gathering of the Sons of Confederate Veterans. Their protests and threats to boycott city businesses failed to prevent Lexington from discontinuing the practice. Shortly thereafter Washington & Lee University, also located in the city, chose to remove Confederate battle flags from inside Lee Chapel, where the general is buried.

    In the face of these defeats the Flaggers chose to take the offensive by buying small plots of land along Virginia highways for their Confederate battle flags. The raising of the first flag along I-95, just south of Richmond, received a good deal of media attention. Hathaway hoped that these flags would serve as a “living, breathing memorial to our Confederate dead.” Increased publicity, however, brought the Flaggers into closer contact with individuals whose interests in the Confederate battle flag extended far beyond commemorating the dead. In 2012 the Flaggers were photographed parading with Matthew Heimbach. Heimbach was the founder of Towson State’s White Student Union and Towson’s Youth for Western Civilization. In 2014 he became the League of the South’s training director and is considered by the Southern Poverty Law Center to be the “new face of white nationalism.”

    In response to the twin defeats in Lexington, the Virginia Flaggers raised a battle flag on the property of Raymond Agnor along I-81, just north of the city. Shortly after the flag raising, Agnor took out an ad in a local newspaper stating in no uncertain terms that, “No black people or democrats are allowed on my property until further notice.” “I don’t want them on my property,” he went on to say, “because I have seen what they did in Baltimore and Ferguson and other places.” While the Flaggers refused to respond to the controversy at the time there is every reason to believe that they share Agnor’s racial outlook.

    The Confederate battle flag raised in Stafford County near Fredericksburg, Virginia is located on the property of Hubert Wayne Cash, who believes that “all blacks are a worthless bunch of freeloading, dangerous animals that should be put down like the dogs that they are.” He goes on, but you get the idea.

    Time for All Christians to Denounce White Supremacy
    Last summer Susan Hathaway agreed to join Kirk Lyons of the Southern Legal Resource Center—an organization that the SPLC labels as “Extremist “—and James Bessenger of the South Carolina Secessionist Party for a flag raising ceremony to mark the one-year anniversary of the removal of the Confederate battle flag from the state house grounds in Columbia, South Carolina. This followed the mass shooting at a Charleston church by suspect Dylann Roof, who it was learned identified closely with Confederate iconography. Just before the event, which was scheduled for July 10, 2016, Hathaway canceled her appearance, but there is no indication that it had anything to do with the reputations of the other speakers.

    The Flaggers have redoubled their efforts in the wake of the Charleston shootings and subsequent calls to remove Confederate flags and monuments from public spaces, but they have met with no success. Communities throughout Virginia continue to question the appropriateness of Confederate iconography in public spaces. The Flaggers have traveled to cities like Charlottesville and Danville to testify at city council hearings and remind community members that the wrong decision will be met with one or more flag raisings, but few people take them seriously.

    This past week Alexandria, Virginia’s City Council voted unanimously to change the name of Jefferson Davis Highway and is looking into the removal of a Confederate soldier statue in the center of town as well. It is very likely that at some point the Virginia Flaggers will visit and may even find a small plot of ground to raise another one of their large battle flags. With each flag raising, however, the Flaggers reveal how very little influence they have had on these community debates and decisions. Instead, they are being left behind and exposed for the reactionaries that they are.
    Their highway flags wave in the name of two lost causes, the first being the defeat of an army pledged to establish an independent slaveholding republic and the other, to try to justify it 150 years later. For the Virginia Flaggers, it has always been about “hate, not heritage.”
