Let’s bomb Dixie
I don’t regret setting bombs
One of the things I love most about this job is how the other side keeps making our case for us. Southern traditionalists, like other paleoconservatives, point out that the Western ideals of social and individual liberty are not simply abstract ideas, but intrinsic components of Western culture; the obvious corollaries being 1) Insisting other cultures adopt our cultural practices is wildly impractical (hence, our opposition to the "liberation" of Iraq), and 2) To preserve those standards of liberty, we must protect, preserve, and promote our culture (which is why we oppose Wall Street’s Open Borders agenda).
The leftists and their Neocon blood brothers, through their deeds, as opposed to their rhetoric (which is only window dressing), clearly demonstrate they know we’re right. Leftist attacks on Southern culture are always aimed at promoting socialistic and statist programs. Southern culture, and the history underlying it, stand in the way of their Big-Government, globalist agenda. That’s why they hate us.
Ed Sebesta is a case in point (read this, for example, if you can bear it). Ed knows the South and its values stand in the way of his fuzzy notions of an egalitarian utopia. But the best this obsessed hater of all things Southern can manage is to gnaw at our culture. He has to depend on the kindness of more talented radicals to do anything of significance.
And in his latest project, he’s once again recruited like-minded, but more formidable, allies. He’s determined to pester President Obama, who clearly has no more pressing issues to occupy him, to stop the practise of laying a commemorative wreath at the Arlington Confederate Monument. Here’s his petition to Obama, with a list of signatories at the bottom.
And check out this comment, which goes even further, calling for the destruction of the Confederate Monument.
How telling that one of the supporters of this petition is none other than Bill Ayers, the former leader of the radical leftist Weather Underground who bombed several buildings in the 60s and 70s. Ayers, you may recall, was famous for telling the New York Times in 2001 that, "I don’t regret setting bombs. I feel we didn’t do enough." When asked if he would "do it all again," he replied, "I don’t want to discount the possibility."
Turns out he hasn’t changed a bit. He is also quoted in Wikipedia as saying, "Maybe I’m the last communist who is willing to admit it." Wiki also says:
Larry Grathwohl, an undercover FBI agent who infiltrated The Weather Underground, claimed that Ayers wanted to overthrow the United States government. In an interview in January 2009, Grathwohl stated that:
"The thing the most bone-chilling thing Bill Ayers said to me was that after the revolution succeeded and the government was overthrown, they believed they would have to eliminate 25 million Americans who would not conform to the new order."
Clearly, Ayers knows the history of communist revolutions, and that such noble ideals must be imposed by force on stubborn, unworthy mortals. I have to admire his honesty.
And the Washington Times tells us that Ayers’ latest book reveals his seething hatreds haven’t dimmed in the least:
His new book, published by Third World Press, is "Race Course Against White Supremacy." The publisher’s description on amazon.com summarizes the thesis "that white supremacy has been the dominant political system in the United States since its earliest days – and that it is still very much with us." Even though Mr. Obama enjoys approval ratings around 60 percent, Mr. Ayers insists that racism is the dominant cultural factor in America today. "It’s very hard not to drag the chains of that history into the present," he said last week. His goal seems to be to keep America’s minorities angry, which keeps America divided.
That’s the greatest thing about being part of the Southern Cause — we’re truly honored by the character and actions of our enemies.
