Confederate History and Heritage Month: Wellington Goddin begs President Andrew Johnson for a full pardon, but why?

Image
An interesting bit of Confederate history and heritage here, to begin to close-out Confederate History and Heritage Month. On December 8, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln issued his "Proclamation of Amnesty and Reconstruction"








In part, President Lincoln's proclamation read:


"Whereas in and by the Constitution of the United States, it is provided that the President "shall have power to grant reprieves and pardons for offences against the United States, except in cases of impeachment, andWhereas a rebellion now exists whereby the loyal State governments of several States have for a long time been subverted, and many persons have committed, and are now guilty of treason against the United States, andWhereas, with reference to said rebellion and treason, laws have been enacted by Congress, declaring forfeitures, and confiscations of property, and liberation of slaves, all upon terms and conditions therein stated, and also declaring that the President was thereby a…

Confederate History and Heritage Month: Robert E. Lee takes an oath

Image
I can imagine how embarrassing it must have been for Bobby Lee to have to grovel for forgiveness. A real man would have just blown his brains out. There is no reason to celebrate this colossal failure. He turned against his own countrymen and then came begging for a chance to protect and defend the Constitution? Well, I say, "No Monuments for Turncoats"!

Virginia Flagger Facebook poster appears to call for lynching over Confederate Monument removal

Image
For the second time today, a poster at the Virginia Flaggers Facebook page has apparentlycalled for violence. This time, appearing to advocate for the lynching of a Mayor and a University President

LOSer Andrew Tracey advocates violence against Confederate memorial opposition on Virginia Flagger Facebook page

Image
This is not surprising. The Virginia Flaggers are both scared to openly support the hate group, and at the same time, scared to distance themselves from them. I doubt that you will hear them denounce this call for violence made from their own Facebook page. The thing is, they do not have to go on the record supporting the League of the South's Southern brand of white nationalism, because saying nothing IS support.

Why does the Confederate Heritage movement continue to embrace embarrassing, discredited hacks?

Image
The fallout from the "Great Headstone Caper of 2016" continues.











Although some people are fightin' mad over the spread of misinformation over this non-issue, it doesn't appear as though they are really willing to do anything about it beyond a little huffing and puffing. 










Some Confederate leaders are offering their own advice in this matter.









Spoken like a true leader. Even confronted with undeniable evidence, I guess some hucksters just can't let it go.












Is a hate flag finally coming to Charlottesville?

Thank goodness for the media









Stay tuned...

The League of the South makes a rare exception?

Image
Ah the good ol' days. Remember when a Southern Nationalists word counted for something?









I know what you're thinking. As long as they didn't take her money, they're still technically not hypocrites. What's next? The National Socialist Movement will start accepting Jews?









Uh oh. Looks like the ugly, bald attorney goofed up. Oops!

Confederate Cray Cray: Arlene Barnum and the case of the swimming stones...

Image
I think she's picked up a scent. Via WTVM:




"“The City of Montgomery says it's not a criminal matter. The soldiers’ names are real, but their graves are not missing markers. Officials don't believe the headstones were ever actually used on graves. They're part of a group of nearly 80 stones recovered by the city at an abandoned house. Almost a year and a half ago, the city responded to a nuisance call regarding a swimming pool left unattended at a home on Madison Avenue. Inspectors went out and noticed that tombstones were lining the pool area and were being used as stepping stones throughout the backyard. "All of the monument headstones were turned upside down the name of the soldier facing down and the smooth side facing up. We noticed a couple were broken. I thought it was a little odd. We got a crew out there unearthing all of them and flipping them over and that's when we found that every one of them had a soldier's name and a date of birth and a …

Texas pastor asks the Southern Baptist Convention to repudiate the Confederate flag as a "step in good faith toward racial healing in America"

Image
A Texas pastor has called on the Southern Baptist Convention to denounce the further use of the Confederate flag, a controversial and divisive symbol which is a constant reminder of slavery and rebellion. Pastor Dwight McKissic of the Cornerstone Baptist Church in Arlington, Texas recently drafted a resolution titled the, "Resolution on The Elimination of The Confederate Flag from Public Life". The resolution was submitted to the Resolutions Committee of the 2016 Southern Baptist Convention for consideration. The annual convention is slated to meet in St. Louis, Missouri from June 14th until June 15th. The text of the resolution reads:



"Resolution on The Elimination of The Confederate Flag from Public LifeSubmitted to the Resolutions Committee of the 2016 Southern Baptist ConventionBy Wm. Dwight McKissic, Sr., Cornerstone Baptist Church, Arlington, TXWHEREAS, SBC President Ronnie Floyd has rallied Southern Baptists to “rise up and cry out against the racism that still e…

Now, now Michael. Lest we forget.











This is coming up next week. Should be a lot of fun.










Should be a very wholesome, Christian message, I'm sure.

Rock Stone Mountain ends in complete failure!

Image
Well duh. I could've told you this was going to end this way. Tons of media reports are popping up over what looks to have been an utter failure yesterday in Stone Mountain, Georgia. I only wish I could've been there to see this bonanza of FAIL!!! Via Vice:


""The 25 people who showed up an hour early are the only ones here," Estes said. But he said he wasn't concerned about the light attendance."



25 people? LOL! What else is there to say?
