This week Cade Logue wrote an informative piece in the on-line periodical The Blue State Conservative with the central tenet that Confederate soldiers of the US Civil War were not traitors.
I agree with his sentiment and am impressed with his research. Reasonable people may disagree, but the facts are facts. There are distinctions worthy of note.
What necessitates his strong article? I see a pile of related acts, mostly vandals, some hard-headed and hard-hearted, and an inability to discriminate between history for its own sake (as an arbiter of American values) and outright intimidation.
Most of this is about imagery. Are the Confederate dead worthy of memorializing? Any American soldier, yes, and attempts to destroy genuine remembrances, especially in cemeteries, is unreasonable and unnecessarily cruel. The enlisted Confederate was likely dirt poor, illiterate, and didn’t own slaves. His error in judgment in life before conscription was tempered by false church values and wanting to keep what little he had.
And once any soldier’s life is lost he deserves the dignity of a decent burial and an opportunity for his family to pay respects, for generations if possible. A statue of an unidentified soldier or an angel in a graveyard should be looked on with respect and reverence.
But it ends there.
I read Uncle Tom’s Cabin this week, after pretending to read the novel in high school. I don’t know anyone who admits to chewing through it, but most people think of the pejorative of Uncle Tom as an insult. He was, in fact, a modest hero, unashamed Christian, and humble martyr. More on this later.
Christian-Driven America-First Precious Metals.
Before markets collapse, the smart play is to move wealth or retirement to precious metals. Contact Genesis Gold now to make it happen smoothly with no hassles from a group driven by fellowship.
There are three huge elements of imagery in America which should be eliminated.
First, reverse dedicating Army posts for Confederate generals, which is long overdue. These flag officers likely were West Point graduates and fought for the wrong side. Whatever legislative mechanism of the past that worked up these native son names, most certainly a transactional end note to a larger congressional abuse, should be acknowledged and fixed forthwith.One example particularly galls me: General Braxton Bragg of the CSA was a particularly brutal commander, and his vanity and incompetence caused […]
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
