Sometimes posting under the moniker “Fortpillow,” John C. Hall, Jr., of Dublin, Georgia, is a CPA who also has taught on an adjunct basis at a local technical college. He’s quite fond of the Confederacy and recently dressed up in his Confederate uniform to celebrate his purchase of a historic house for his business. He’s also a proud member of the Southern Heritage Preservation Group, where he once declared, “Forrest is my hero. His picture hangs on my wall. I don’t give a rat’s ass about whining liberals regarding him. One of my screen names if Fort Pillow. To me he is the standard of fighting for the cause in Dixy.”
Good enough. So let’s see what “Fortpillow” posted recently in the comments section of a blog post at The Atlantic:
Ah but Mr. Litvak…..let’s see Litvak is of Lithainian Jewish ancestry I wonder how long your seed has been upon this land? Mine has been here quite a while….Irish and Scot….I have the actual letters from my Confederate Ancestor. He spoke of Dixy you see as written in one of his letters. He was quite patriotic in his fever to defend his country. He even discusses his servants/slaves. My grandmother gave me a gift…a gift of the truth…what have ye?
And then there’s this …
Villani….I believe that is Italian. What boat did your people come on to arrive at Ellis Island?….There is a pattern shown by those who vilify the South such as yourself…..Ancestry does matter sir!……..
In the South a “large number of the people who settled the South were from a Scots-Irish mix and Huguenots. This is distinctly different from the influential English and Puritan settlement seen in the north. The groups maintained different world views. Those settling in the South held many common values. These values include polite manners, landed gentry, love of sports (including fighting), hospitality, quiet living, love of vocal music, pride in their ancestry, loyalty to local chieftains rather than a central authority and dangerous adventure.They also maintained a fierce love of independent thought in intellectual pursuits and religion. They maintained a “live and let live philosophy” as opposed to the Yankee/Puritan north that wanted to ‘save’ the world and tell others how to live their lives because they sincerely believed their ways were superior to those of other areas or religions.”According to the above quote…Our views differ and have always differed…it is our ancestry that sets us apart! My sword is my words and I shall unsheathe it to deal with your un- justified superiority complex.
And, finally, there’s this ….
Sierk is German…no doubt another recent immigrant to America post War of Northern aggression. And how long has your seed been in this land? Were your ancestor’s the mercenaries brought to give thee free land to slaughter the Southern Solider?
Yes, sir, John C. Hall Jr., CPA, of Dublin, Georgia, is an interesting person.
