Payback’s a Bitch”: Rural Wisdom and the Gathering Storm


ConFlag The furor over the Confederate flag, think I, has little to do with the Confederate flag, which is a pretext, an uninvolved bystander. Rather it is about a seething anger in the United States that we must not mention. It is the anger of people who see everything they are and believe under attack by people they aren’t and do not want to be—their heritage, their religion, their values and way of life all mocked and even made criminal.

The talking heads inside Washington’s beltway, in editorial suites in New York, do not know of this anger. They do not talk to people in Joe’s Bar in Chicago or in barbecue joints in Wheeling. They are cloistered, smug, sure of themselves. And they are asking for it.

We are dealing with things visceral, not rational. Confusing the two is dangerous. Hatreds can boil over as syllogisms cannot. The banning of the flag infuriates, for example, me. Why? Although a Southerner by raising, I would far prefer to live in New York City than in Memphis. Yet I value my boyhood in Virginia and Alabama. My ancestors go back to the house of Burgesses, and I remember long slow summer days on the Rappahannock and in the limestone of Athens, Alabama.

When the federal government and the talking heads want to ban my past—here, permit me to exit momentarily the fraudulent objectivity of literature—I hate the sonsofbitches.

A lot of people quietly hate the sonsofbitches.

To them, to us, the Confederate flag stands for resistance to control from afar, to meddling and instruction from people we detest. It is the flag of “Leave me the hell alone.” And this Washington, Boston, and New York will…not…do.

A surprise may be coming.

What is the anger about? Most visibly, but far from uniquely, race: the illegals, the Knock-Out game, and Washington’s protection of both. The racial hostility that pervades the country today is largely the doing of the talking heads and its perverse social policies. The rancor is unlike anything I have seen.

Curious. When I was a lad ages ago, I thought well of Brown vs. the School board. Southerners said that integration would never work and they were right, but what came before was just wrong. I thought so then, and I think so now. I favored the civil-rights acts. I reluctantly favored affirmative action (I was very young) thinking it meant a hand up instead of an entitlement. I wrote hopefully of the prospect of educating blacks.

But look what happened. We now see forced hiring of the incompetent as a right, endless accounts of blacks destroying shopping malls, burning cities, brutally attacking whites in gangs, and the giving to blacks of anything they want because they are black. You don’t like the Confederate flag, Jesse? Why then, it must go. Whatever you say, Jesse.

It wasn’t this way, but it is now. It is getting worse. But there is far more than race. We now are compelled to live in a national sexual-freak show. Day after day after day the media are full of trans-this and trans-that, of homosexual marriages, all thrust in our faces, a parade of prancing peculiarities demanding and demanding and demanding. People who dare not say so are sick of it.

It isn’t viciousness. I don’t know anyone who wants to persecute the erotically baroque. Poofters in particular are usually bright, productive, decent people, and do not attack whites in wheel chairs with hammers. Yet I weary of their endless tedious concerns. I say, go. Go with God, but for God’s sake go. Or just shut up. That would do as well.

I, we, will be told, “But Fred, homosexuality is natural.” So is hemorrhagic tuberculosis. So is sadism. So is genocide.

Any sexual predilection can be called natural, and arguments can be made for all of them: Polygamy, or marriage with a sheep, or copulating on a public bus, or sex with girls of nine years. (How about, “Sex is natural. Children are erotic: Don’t they play doctor? Little girls are only afraid of it because of puritanical conditioning by society. Oral sex feels good, and adults do it, so why not…? Why shouldn’t her father gently teach her….” And so on.)

And crime is out of control, protected by a President and Attorney General with whom we, so many Americans, have nothing in common, who dislike us, and who want to disarm us and flood our country with illegal and incompatible aliens.

Do you think that wanting a gun is silly? Last week I started getting emails: “Chuck got shot.” On Breitbart I found that Chuck De Caro, a journalist and friend for so long that I forget how I met him, had checked into a motel in Albuquerque with his wife, whereupon an armed dirtbag tried to rob them and perhaps worse. I suppose that a white couple in their sixties must have seemed a soft target. Oops. It wasn’t a swell career move. Chuck is ex-Special Forces and a longtime war correspondent. Threatening his wife doesn’t fly well with him.

Anyway, Chuck apparently had other ideas about being robbed and perhaps killed. He also had a handgun. In the ensuing gunfight, he was hit several times and rushed to the hospital. Chuck will be okay, the dirtbag less so. He escaped to the parking lot, where he decided to lie down and bleed to death. A good choice. The news stories didn’t describe the perp, which meant…. Decaro

This gem, Tomorio Walton, is, or was, a career criminal and was, of course, on parole. Can you guess why so many of us want guns and carry permits? Characteristically I had to find the photo in the Mail Online, an English paper.

Then there is the de-Christianizing of the country. Religion, both historically and currently, is a potent thing. Play with it at your risk. It is not always really a matter of religion. Many of us, I among them, are not believers but value Christmas and its traditions. But no. We must not have nativity scenes or sing Christmas carols on public streets. Easter-egg hunts are unconstitutional. Mommy Washington doesn’t like them, and we have to do what Washington says.

Unless, of course, one day we don’t.

We are winding a spring.

Stoking the flames under the pressure cooker is the unending, ever-tightening control of every aspect of life by Washington. People inside the city’s beltway, a venue I know well, do not understand what they are playing with. They are sure that they know best, and they are going to make us toe the line.

Federal bureaucrats tell people in Casper, Laredo, and Knoxville what they can and cannot teach their children in the schools, what religious practices they may have and what their children may eat. They set curricula, determine to whom bakeries must sell cakes, decide who can marry what, and with whom we must associate.

I could go on. There is quiet fury about open borders, the forced acceptance of criminal aliens, of 100,000 Somalis by Minnesota, the endless wars, the declining standard of living, the insane censorship (say “nigger” and your career of thirty years ends) and the ungodly surveillance. Washington pushes, pushes, and pushes, thinking that with just enough pressure, we will all come to kowtow.

What if one day we don’t?

And there is governmental corruption, the sense—“realization,” I would say—that Washington is entirely in the hands of the arms manufacturers, of the Israeli lobby, of big pharma and ethnic lobbies and, well, anyone who bribes Congress. Elections are a sham, serving only to decide the division of the spoils for eight years. All decisions of importance are carefully kept out of the public’s hands.

Maybe Washington will always get away with it. Maybe it won’t. White Americans are an obedient and passive people, easily cowed, but maybe enough will prove enough. Maybe things will blow. Maybe jurisdictions will just ignore the feds, as begins to happen.

But it is dangerous. The economy declines, people out of college can’t get jobs, the ghettoes simmer, automation surges across the board, and one day soon we will have cutbacks in the entitlements. When groups begin competing for dwindling resources, things will get ugly. It could explode. It really could. You might be surprised how many people out there think, “Bring it on.” Not a good idea, but we go that way.

Tick Tick. Tick.

Louisiana Gunman is yet another Psychiatric Malpractice Lawsuit needing to be filed

Gunman at Lafayette movie Theater is a victim of Psychiatric malpractice. All of the modern mass killers are like Manchurian Candidates, out to destroy American values, push Government to grab guns etc. But the real culprits are these witch doctors in white coats, these Psychiatrists who wreck people brains chemically and never get held accountable for their malpractice. If these nuts are out mixing in public it’s because the Psychiatric community is NUTS! and because of Political correctness run amok. Rise up and demand they be held accountable ( The Doctors). “The gunman who killed two women and wounded nine people in a theater here Thursday night had a history of mental illness and financial trouble, officials said, and reportedly vented hatred of liberals and the government online, predicting the collapse of the United States.
The police identified the gunman as John Russell Houser, 59, of Phoenix City, Ala.
“America is so sick that I now believe it to be the enemy of the world,” he wrote on one discussion forum. “I know next to nothing about Iran, but the little I do know tells me they are far higher morally than this financially failing filth farm.
Mr. Houser was treated in the Phoenix City area for an unspecified mental illness in 2008 and 2009, according to Heath Taylor, the sheriff of Russell County, Ala. Court records show that he filed for bankruptcy protection in 2002, and the superintendent of the Louisiana State Police, Col. Michael D. Edmonson, said his finances had been poor; he recently received money from his mother.”

Black Confederate Flag Activist Dies in Car Crash After Flag Rally

Anthony Hervey, a 49-year-old resident of Oxford, Mississippi, was reportedly run off the road and killed as he neared his home town late Sunday morning. Hervey (who’s shown here in 2000) and Arlene Barnum, a black resident of Stuart, Oklahoma, were returning from a pro-Confederate flag rally in Birmingham, Alabama, where several African-Americans were featured among the supporters of the flag at the “Monumental Dixie” rally.
Barnum was hospitalized following the rollover. She explained that both she and Hervey advocated support of the Confederate flag, though she did not know Hervey before giving him a ride to the rally.
Barnum related that on the return trip, as they approached Oxford she let Hervey take over driving her Ford Explorer. She said he saw a vehicle in the rearview mirror speeding to catch up to them. According to the McAlester News, Barnum said Hervey accelerated, but a “silver vehicle continued to pursue,” and then it swerved into their passenger side.
Barnum posted on Facebook, “HELP … They after us. My vehicle inside down,” followed by another post in which she said that Hervey was pinned in.
Hervey was the founder of the Black Confederate Soldier Foundation, based in Oxford, Mississippi, whose mission is to “foster new thought on the Civil War.” His vision was to build a memorial that would include the names of the black Confederates who fought and died in the Civil War.
Hervey’s interest in the Confederate flag and the war began when he discovered that his own great-great-uncle, James Hervey, was one of those black Confederate soldiers. His ancestor served in the Army of Mississippi, and was killed at the Battle of Shiloh in 1862, in southwestern Tennessee, near the state line of Mississippi.
According to Hervey’s research, at least 100,000 black Confederates fought in the Civil War.
Accompanied by his brother Harry, Anthony began marching in 2000 along U.S. Highway 90, dressed in Confederate gray, carrying the Confederate “battle flag.” Harry wore a Robert E. Lee T-shirt. At the time, Hervey explained, “I am marching for freedom. The battle flag stands for freedom and states’ rights.”
He argued in 2000:
We currently live under a psychological form of reconstruction. Whites are made to feel guilty for sins of their ancestors, and blacks are made to feel downtrodden. This keeps all of us from communicating. The political correctness of today is killing the pride of the people.
At the Birmingham rally, Barnum publicly burned her NAACP life membership card in disgust at that group’s opposition to the Confederate flag. Police were forced to intervene and arrest several counter-protesters who attempted to attack Barnum, Hervey, and other pro-Confederate black Americans.
Hervey had been physically attacked in the past for his outspoken pro-Confederate views.
The Mississippi Highway Patrol is investigating the cause of the crash of Barnum’s vehicle. A Highway Patrol spokesman said the accident took place on Highway 6 near the Pontotoc County line, adding that no more details will be released untl accident reconstructionists examine the evidence.
The Oxford Clarion-Ledger reported that the account given by Barnum “makes the accident seem rather suspicious.”
Hervey was the author of Why I Wave the Confederate Flag: Written by a Black Man. Wearing a Confederate uniform and waving the Confederate flag in Oxford’s town square, he would often attract an audience for his talks on the subject of black Confederates in the Civil War.
Several years ago, Hervey told his brother Harry that he should not worry about those who shouted at them in anger as they marched along Highway 90, waving the Confederate flag. “They will yell a lot and want you to confront them, but they will not do anything,” he said.
Whether Hervey was correct in that assurance to his brother will depend on the results of the investigation by legal authorities in Mississippi.

Why Sudden Leftist Hysteria About The #ConfederateFlag? Texas To Start Teaching Truth Regarding The Civil War:

A couple of weeks ago, God put it on my heart to start researching the truth about Lincoln. I have known for some time that the Civil war was a states rights issue, but I was digging deeper regarding Lincoln. I thank God that he always has me ahead of what is happening…..
The last few days, on my facebook page, an idiot ‘conservative’ was trying to advise me that I was learning ‘revisionist history’ regarding the “Civil War.” I showed him the book about “Lincoln’s Marxists.’ Even proved to him that many of Lincoln’s Generals, Lt Col’s, Cols, Officers were Marxists and Socialists from the EU. He didn’t care to hear. He just blasted me. Ditto 2 other asshats on Twitter. The only phoney ‘history’ we learned were the LIES that Northern Progressives taught the whole nation, whitewashing Lincoln – the tyrannical dictator.
Slavery was a SIDE issue. Not “the” issue of the Civil war. Lincoln used the word slavery as a ‘watch word‘, (Which Karl Marx congratulated him on at his re-election). See that: Karl Marx Congratulated Abraham Lincoln For Pretending The Civil War Was About Slavery

Things are about to change for the minorities. And, a new kind of rage and repentance is going to sweep the land in remorse toward the Southerners:

This is why the Communist/Liberals are in mass hysteria. It had nothing to do with Dylann Roof & his Confederate Flag. Zero. The left knew this was on the horizon & had to cover their tracks. Eat crow, Liberal pigs:

Your days are at an END.



And some people find the Confederate Battle Flag offensive?

OCALA, Fla. (Reuters) – An eight-mile convoy of pickups, motorcycles and cars wound through a central Florida town on Sunday in a show of support for the Confederate flag, as a backlash against its banishment from public landmarks across the South picks up steam.

Horns blared and hundreds of the rebel flags fluttered as more than 1,500 vehicles and some 4,500 people turned out for the “Florida Southern Pride Ride” in Ocala, according to police estimates. Vehicles from states across the South and as far away as California participated.
“That flag has a lot of different meanings to a lot of different people,” said David Stone, 38, who organized the event. “It doesn’t symbolize hate unless you think it’s hate – and that’s your problem, not mine.”
Organizers announced the event as the South embarked on an emotional debate over the flag’s symbolism in the aftermath of the massacre of nine blacks by a white gunman in a Charleston church last month. The suspect in the church shootings had posed with the flag in photos posted on a website.
In South Carolina, lawmakers moved quickly to take the flag down from the statehouse grounds in Columbia, a longstanding demand of those who see it as a divisive symbol of the South’s pro-slavery legacy.
Alabama and scores of municipalities have take similar steps since the June 17 massacre.
But the national push to pull the controversial icon from stores and public displays is being met with determined resistance in some corners of the United States.
Supporters such as those who drove through Ocala on Sunday insist the flag is a honorable symbol of regional pride, a mark of respect for Southern soldiers who died in the American Civil War.
In Ocala, the seat of Marion County, an administrator had ordered the Confederate flag’s removal from a government complex. But last week county leaders overruled the order and the banner is again flying atop the building.
“It’s just about heritage. I’m upset they want to remove a piece of history,” said Jessica McRee, 29, an Ocala native and employee of a law enforcement agency who participated in Sunday’s ride.
In Hurley, Virginia, the rebel flag is more visible than ever as residents show their support for keeping the local high school’s logo, which features the Confederate flag waving from a saber.
Mississippi, whose state flag incorporates the design of the Confederate banner, is divided. The city of Hattiesburg has removed all state flags from city buildings, but just three miles away, the town of Petal has voted to fly the state flag at all of its city buildings.
Mississippi Republican Governor Phil Bryant has refused to call a special legislative session to address the issue, resisting calls to do so from leading state officials. In a 2001 statewide referendum, Mississippians overwhelmingly endorsed keeping the current state flag’s design.
“A backlash is beginning,” said Ben Jones, a spokesman for the Sons of Confederate Veterans, which represents 30,000 descendants of Confederate soldiers. “We are putting flags out. Everyone time one is taken down, we put five or six of them up.”
Jones, a former Democratic congressman from Georgia who starred in the hit 1980s TV comedy series “The Dukes of Hazzard,” said he has been selling out of the replicas for sale at his show-themed stores in Tennessee and Virginia. The show featured a stock car dubbed the General Lee with an image of the Confederate flag on its roof.
And North Carolina’s Department of Motor Vehicles recently sold out of a series of specialty license plates featuring the Confederate flag, local media reported. It has ordered more of the plates, which may be discontinued in the future.
Not everyone in rural Ocala was in sympathy with the ride, which police said was peaceful.
Galina Abdelaziz, 18, a recent Ocala high school graduate, stood with three others protesting the flag at the beginning of the parade route.
“It’s really discouraging to me to see this in my hometown,” Abdelaziz said.

The terminus of the parade had been changed at the last minute to avoid a largely black neighborhood where residents opposed the event, according to Ocala Sergeant Robie Bonner.
