As a military brat and retired military officer, I suppose I could talk about my experiences and try to speak authoritatively about the relative greatness of Southern ideas. However, that would be hogwash. I am no more qualified to speak about the supremacy of Southern ideas than anyone else. And frankly, I don’t think James Atticus Bowden is either.
So why did I reblog Bowden’s post? Read Bowden’s post carefully. Three things shine through. Bowden loves:
- His home state, Virginia.
- The founding ideals that made America a great, constitutional republic.
- Our Lord and His Holy Bible.
I am a fan of all three, particularly our savior, Christ Jesus.
When at its founding slavery divided the North and the South, that set up a great conflict. That conflict eventually resulted in the Civil War. Since then, the North has repressed the South using both the real and the imagined bigotry of Southerners as an excuse. Sadly, the party that most supported slavery, the Democratic Party, did not die with the Civil War. Instead, that party been most guilty of fomenting the strife that has allowed the repression of Blacks to continue. And Blacks, foolishly believing those lying and bigoted Democrats now support them, vote Democrat and against their own best interests. Instead of voting to run their own lives, Blacks vote for their own enslavement by the Federal Government. I would say that’s dumb, but there are dumber souls.
- The environmentalist wackos.
- The guilt-ridden Whites who vote Democrat.
- The greedy fools who vote for those politicians who promise them “other people’s money.”
- Those who believe Socialism is both ethical and works.
- and so forth.
So will the South rise again? That I do not know. I just know God is in heaven, and His Will will be done.
I write about Southern History Month every year. Not Confederate History Month. Southern history is much bigger than Confederate history. And, unlike the Confederacy, the South has a future. The opening pic above has the Confederate Battle flags that create so much excitement in these ignorant times – and something else. One of the Flaggers is a young black lady. She is one of the fewer than 200 Virginia Flaggers whose passion for proper respect drives them. And, that makes several points.
In our Commonwealth of about 7.7 million people, maybe 200 people take their free time on weekends, in all weather, to wave a flag that is the symbol of hatred, racism, slavery, segregation and over-the-top extremes of evil to way too many people who live in Virginia. So, what does that tiny number mean? It means the power of heritage, history, family, faith and the ideas…
