re: Ignorance drives white support for Confederate flag - AU86
[quote]quote: Victor gets to write history. No question about that. There's a big difference between winning a rebellion and losing one. Since traditionally the losers get their histories written and get hung for treason, the Confederate leadership still got off easy. Again, your points ab...

[quote]quote: You are right. People in the North made millions on Slave trade/slave ships and they also made millions in the Northern mills using the cotton produced from slave labor. No one was innocent in that institution. This is never to be overlooked and is a great point, just not one in...

[quote]quote: Rex. Someone once said that the Confederacy's epitaph should read "Died of States Rights". 100% accurate. They were hoisted on their own petard [/quote] There is no greater proponent of States Rights than I am. But Davis was severely limited in waging that war because of the ...

re: Ignorance drives white support for Confederate flag - AU86
[quote]quote: Someone needs to design a new flag specifically for support of states' rights. It's a giant myth that the South seceded over states' rights. It was the OPPOSITE. Each of their statements of secession complained that the Northern states were crafting their own laws related to slaver...

Hey monsterballads. This one is for you. “When the South raised its sword against the Union’s Flag, it was in defense of the Union’s Constitution.” Confederate General John B. Gordon :lol: :lol:...

re: Ignorance drives white support for Confederate flag - AU86
[quote]quote: It wasn't treason. If it were, they would have arrested Lee and hundreds of other officers who let their intentions be known before the outbreak of hostilities. It's the very definition of treason. And the answer to your second point is the same as the answer to why those off...

re: Ignorance drives white support for Confederate flag - AU86
“Why doesn’t the Confederacy just fade away? Is it because we are irresistibly fascinated by catastrophic loss? Or is it something else? Is it because the Confederacy is to this day the greatest conservative resistance to federal authority in American history?” Professor David Blight...

re: U.S. Army Refuses To Bow To PC Crowd (On This One, At Least) - AU86
[quote]Mr Davis was not exactly solid as a wartime President[/quote] His greatest fault as I see it was his reluctance to get rid of his friends such as Bragg and Bishop Polk. They both caused enormous damage to the war cause in the west. Davis at the same time was known to hold a grudge against ...

re: Near super majority of Americans don't believe rebel flag is racist - AU86
“The universal practice of carrying arms in the South is undoubtedly the cause of occasional loss of life, and is much to be regretted. On the other hand, this custom renders altercations and quarrels of very rare occurrence, for people are naturally careful what they say when a bullet may be the pr...

That is why the majority needs to stand up and let their views be known to stop this historical and cultural genocide. Stay silent and cower down and this bunch will stop at nothing. What will be next?...
