Hey, y’all. I always tell y’all to feel free to share my articles; I’m askin’ you to share this one. I’m askin’ in the hope that the people I’m talkin’ to will be reached, because they need to be educated before they lead this nation to bloodshed. They are pushin’ buttons that can’t be un-pushed, and I, for one, don’t want Americans to go to war with each other again, but neither do I want to see any more damage done to our Southern heritage.

America’s Most Beloved White Supremacist
Some of you may get angry at me for what I am about to say. Some of you may feel insulted. I don’t care; if I did, I wouldn’t say it. If you have either reaction and decide, because of your reaction, not to finish reading this article, understand that you will only be proving what I say to be true. Here it is: Those of you who participate in, or support, the “removal” of Confederate Monuments because you believe them to be monuments to “white supremacists” are ignorant, uneducated, indoctrinated fools. Now, you can prove me right, and remain ignorant, uneducated, indoctrinated fools, or you can finish reading this article and possibly break free of those chains. By all means, feel free to check my facts, you might learn something.
Monuments to the Confederacy and her fighting men have nothing to do with white supremacy; the war they fought was not over the perpetuation of the institution of slavery in America. The Southern States did not secede from the Union to preserve the institution of slavery in the South, or anywhere else in America. I know this not only because I have educated myself on the subject, but also because my common sense tells me that more than one million non-slave-owning men would not walk into the jaws of almost certain death so that some rich man down the road could keep HIS slaves. I have researched the War of Northern Aggression, or the “Civil War” as you were taught to call it in school, and its causes extensively, and I can tell you this: It was fought for the same reason as most wars are, over money. In this particular case, to collect the revenue of unfair taxes imposed upon the South by a greedy government dominated by Northern interests jealous of the South’s prosperity. But that is another story, one which I would be more than glad to tell upon request. “Monuments to White Supremacists” is what we’re talking about now.
You people that participate in these defamations are hypocrites of the worst stripe. You see, when you tear down and/or deface these monuments and refer to the Confederate Soldiers as white supremacists, I, as well as thousands like me, take it as a personal insult because you are talking about our ancestors; men like my great-great-great-grand-father Private James Scott, who along with his brother Stephen, in late February of 1862, walked approximately 40 miles from Coleridge, North Carolina to Alamance County, North Carolina where they enlisted in the 44th North Carolina Infantry on March 8, 1862. Both men were poor men, farmers who had never owned a slave, nor did they condone slavery; in fact, the family was involved in the Underground Railroad. They did what they did because the North was violating the sovereignty of the States and invading the Southern States in order to force them to pay the aforementioned taxes. So when you refer to these men, some of the most courageous, righteous men ever to be born, as white supremacists, we take it personally. Our heritage is sacred to us, and when you defame it, we get angry. To make matters worse, you defame our ancestors while ignoring, even deifying, the most famous white supremacist in American history.
In a speech given on March 4, 1861, the man I am referring to said, “I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races, that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race… I have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to interfere with the institution of slavery in the States where it exists. I believe I have no lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so.” I would submit to you that this is the definition of White Supremacy. Would you not agree?
On August 14, 1862, this same man met with a delegation of free black men, ministers and businessmen, men well respected within their communities, and told them, “You and we are different races. We have between us a broader difference than exists between almost any other two races. Whether it is right or wrong I need not discuss, but this physical difference is a great disadvantage to us both, as I think your race suffer very greatly, many of them by living among us, while ours suffer from your presence. In a word we suffer on each side. If this is admitted, it affords a reason at least why we should be separated… I do not propose to discuss this, but to present it as a fact with which we have to deal.” He was speaking of colonization; permanently exiling all the black people in America to South America or Africa. He told them that it was “for the good of mankind.” That sounds to me like something a white supremacist would say. Does it sound that way to you?
That man became famous, loved by blacks and whites alike, except for those who knew the truth of his character. That man is STILL famous; STILL loved by blacks and whites alike, except for those of us who haven’t forgotten the truth of his character, thanks in many ways to our Confederate ancestors… and we never will, for he was a man without any semblance of honor. That man was Abraham Lincoln, 16th President of the United States of America, and America’s most beloved white supremacist. So the next time you feel the need to “remove” a monument to white supremacy, why don’t you go to Washington, DC, and destroy THAT monument to white supremacy, because it is the largest, and very probably the only REAL, monument to white supremacy in the country, if not the world. Sic Semper Tyrannis!
