Would You Like to Make Some Money Off Confederate Heritage? Here’s How …

We are coming to the end of another summer. Children are returning to school, and Labor Day will mark the traditional end of summer break, even if in some cases school has been in session for weeks.

One of the traditional Hollywood staples for many years was the summer camp movie. The story was always the same: there was a camp where people met, bonded, and found out the meaning of life despite themselves, sometimes by scoring a tremendous victory over a rival camp populated by privileged kids. You know exactly what I mean …

… or this …

… or some others …

… except those horror movies.

Now comes our annual reminder of Kevin Levin’s favorite summer camp. That’s right … the Sam Davis Youth Camp. Watch this:

Looks like fun, right?

Wholesome fun for the kiddies. Look at how they are dressed … and one day they’ll look like this:

Carl Roden Rice Service 1

… or this …

Barry boy girl

… or this:

Z two

Something to look forward to, eh?

So, here’s the deal: why not make a movie about Sam Davis Youth Camp? Oh, we’ll call it something else, like Nathan Bedford Forrest Youth Camp or Gone With the Wind By the Lake … but you can see the potential. After all, these folks did:

What would you feature? Who would you cast, and in what role?

    Connie Chastain stars in Ernestine goes to Sam Davis Youth Camp.

    The videos of the youth camp were downright scary. I thought that Goebbels was going to limp in and give a speech.
    How does one volunteer to be a guest speaker at the camp. Brooks perhaps you should think about volunteering.
    BTW I didn’t see any ancestors of all those black confederate volunteers the heritage folks talk about.
    Maybe the confederate artillery would have performed better during the war if they had female crews working the guns.
    I’ll bet every kid in that room is sick and tired of hearing “Dixie”. I didn’t know the song had 20 verses.

      Leo,
      The similarities are eerie. These poor kids at the SCV youth camp are in for a tough life if they don,t get an education to combat the brainwashing and propaganda.

        The Hitler Youth Camps were the first thing that came to mind when I viewed the video.
        It is truly unnerving how similar they are in brainwashing children.

    The Apartheid-era South African flag in their meeting room was a really nice touch.

      I am trying to understand the kilts. I am not aware that Scottish kilts wee ever popular attire in the antebellum south.

      • Andy Hall August 12, 2015 / 10:56 am

        They weren’t, especially. There were lots of Scots-Irish in the South, though (especially the Upper South), and in recent years there’s been a lot of effort put into retroactively embracing that heritage, even to a degree (kilts, bagpipes) that the actual Scots-Irish descendants of the mid-19th century mostly didn’t. It really has reached some ridiculous proportions.

        Personally, I blame Jim Webb and Star Trek.

        • Leo August 12, 2015 / 12:52 pm

          Andy, that post from Dead Confederates on the confederate kilts has me speechless. I am simply amazed at the stupidity the heritage crowd will go to in manufacturing history and heritage.

          I managed to trace my family back to the Macfarlane Clan but don’t feel the need to don a kilt to prove it.

            Leo,
            I think the real way to make money off the Heritage folks is by marketing the most asinine thing you can think of. Perhaps a pet rock with the CBF painted on it. These saps will buy anything.

      If only there was a Rhodesian one!

        Laqueesha,
        As far as the South African flag is concerned, it frightens me to think that one of these people had to go out of their way to get one. I mean the local Wal-Mart doesn’t keep them in stock. These people need serious therapy.

        • Laqueesha August 14, 2015 / 6:04 pm

          Indeed. I remember seeing real South Africans perplexed as to why Americans would get one, when most actual South Africans don’t care for the thing much.

    Don’t forget the flag hucksters! Like Kyle Rogers from the C of CC, the guiding light of white nationalism for the young mass murderer Dylan Roof, who is using this serge in flag fetishism to profit in his flag business.
