How a Southern Nationalist Views United States Veterans

From the pen of Tim Manning:

Those who will honour U.S. Veterans now living need to know that they are honouring men and women who are doing to foreign nations what the USA did to the South during the 1860s through the Period of Reconstruction in the 1870s. We must at least stop celebrating the American Holocaust committed against the Southern people of the Confederate States of America ! ! !

Here’s Mr. Manning several years ago …

Note that no one at the Southern Heritage Preservation Group voiced an objection to this sentiment (its self-styled chaplain “liked” it).

Just a reminder of how some people think.

For the rest of you … for those of you who have served or are serving in the armed forces of the United States, thank you for your service.

    Good heavens! Mr. Manning can’t even spare a kind thought for the military men and women (mostly young kids) who keep us safe and free. Really, why doesn’t he forfeit his citizenship if he feels so oppressed? At least he is free to leave, unlike the slaves his vaunted Confederacy kept in bondage.

    And the “American Holocaust?” Pullease…your ancestors started a bloody war and now you’re whining because they lost? War and Reconstruction were both hard on the South, but I don’t think the Japanese and Germans blubber as much as neoconfederates do about their hardships. It’s the 21st century. For God’s sake buck up.

      In regards to the so called southern holocaust,what did the confederate leaders think was going to happen when they fired on US troops at fort Sumter,did they think at all.

    “American Holocaust committed against the Southern people”??? That word he uses: I do not think it means what he thinks it means.

    Also, ironic that a neo-Confederate would describe the Civil War & Reconstruction as a holocaust since some blacks view American slavery as the American Holocaust (I don’t agree with them either, but that claim seems a little less ridiculous).

      “. . .some blacks view American slavery as the American Holocaust .”

      American Holocaust? I’ve never heard that. I think, perhaps, you’re referring to the term “Black Holocaust” which some blacks (and others) use to refer to the entire period of the European and American slave trade; not just American slavery.

    Mr. Manning needs a psych eval…

    Fair winds and following seas to all those who took the oath. Semper fidelis.

    Maybe Sherman should have burned Savannah too.

    Considering the garbage that’s been coming from characters like Mr. Manning for decades, it amazes me that they wonder why the South is viewed negatively by so many people.

    Our heroic war dead died so that this joker can cram down a dozen chocolate glazed every day. Disconcerting…..
