Portrait of Victimization: A Confederate Heritage Advocate

By now many of us are familiar with the violent fantasies of certain Confederate heritage advocates. One promised to write an entire novel about the tale of someone bent upon violence against those poor innocent followers of the Confederate cause. That’s right.

Just as some Confederate advocates like to identify with victims of the Holocaust, now we have Confederate heritage advocates identifying with the victims of the Charleston shootings. Yes, that’s right. Here’s the complete statement offered by one of them:

Connie, these far-Leftist people do not consider us worthy of existing, let alone the dignity of being treated as human beings with rights. Their own rhetoric and lack of empathy show mindsets that are full of hatred (both self-hatred and hatred of others) and – in a few cases – border on psychotic.

It is as I have said before, it is only a matter of time before another potential Bryce Williams out there with only two brain cells and no emotional control gets inspired by one of those movements, or something some Wonkette says and commits some Columbine/Aurora/Charleston/UVA/Boston-type act of retribution for some alleged “crime”…more frightening considering that may young people and children attend these events.

Regardless I will not lower my flag, nor will I hide. If like those who followed Ghandi or King I must take a beating in order to openly be proud of who I am and who my ancestors were – then I would be proud to take that beating. I am not afraid for my own life, that debt has already been paid and my soul belongs to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the Son of the true and living God. They can beat my body, break my bones, even kill me. All they would have is my dead body, not my obedience, or compliance to their misguided stereotypical worldview.

Still, I will pray that cooler heads prevail, but I fear that the most radical members of the Opposition will not allow it. God be with all of us as we continue to stand against PC bigotry and the mentalities of racial identity politics.

To which the owner of the Confederate heritage blog in question replied:

Well said, Carl.

That this exchange occurred on September 11 only added to its flavor.

Mind you, the fellow who is not afraid of being a victim also declared that he would confront the Ku Klux Klan for abusing his beloved Confederate battle flag … but when Klansmen showed up in his home state last July 18 to protest the removal of that flag from the grounds of the South Carolina state capitol, he found he had other things to do that prevented his attendance.

But let’s not have facts interrupt victimization fantasies, shall we? For guess what appeared today?

The people arrayed against us are children of the Great Deceiver. They pretend to be tolerant and the champions of the downtrodden, but basically, they are socialists with socialism’s true goal. And what is that?

Well, the visible goals are:

1. Destruction of private property
2. Destruction of the traditional family
3. Destruction of traditional (Christian) religion

But as Igor Shafarevich knew, their true goal is far different….

“…socialism had endured throughout history, usually in the form of one or another Christian heresy. It gives expression to the gnostic urge to rebel — the rebellion of the educated against the constraints imposed by Creation and by God. In earlier periods, when of course the socialist label was not used, it could be identified by its insistent, unvarying emphasis on certain goals: the destruction of private property and of the traditional or ‘nuclear’ family; and above all, the dismemberment of traditional, or orthodox religion. Throughout history, the phenomenon has been obsessed with material equality, and with the eradication of individual and gender distinctions. It wars incessantly against the normal. Shafarevich concluded that a ‘striving for self-destruction,’ for nothingness, for the “death of mankind,” was the true goal of socialism. Instinctively, without stating it or even seeing it as the conscious goal, the socialist phenomenon seeks the death of the human race.”

It strives for self-destruction, for the death of mankind, for the death of the human race. Nothingness. That is socialism’s goal….

I understand if it takes you some time to try to wrap your head around that sort of logic. From questioning the display of the Confederate battle flag and decrying white supremacy and bigotry to wanting to kill Confederate heritage advocates to desiring a socialist order … yup, that’s how these fine minds work.

Remember another time when Confederate heritage advocates indulged in these victimization fantasies? Hello, Rob Walker. That didn’t turn out too well, either.

    The Chastain Promise:

    As soon as I’m physically and medically able to do so, I will resume sidewalk-style activism, and at this point, I’m not particularly worried about violence in my area. There are lots of places far worse than northwest Florida. But as our heritage community grows and activism increases, we will be more likely to draw the attention of heritage haters and their, ah, ” unintended” enforcers. So I will be taking my own advice and be constantly aware of my surroundings at events and prepared to dodge bullets, to pour oil on the troubled waters, as it were, if there is opportunity to do so, and avert confrontations that could result in violence.

      It’s really quite amazing. Then again, it was nice of Carl and Connie to present themselves in this fashion. Of course, they do it quite often. Maybe they want to be easy targets (although not as they define it).

        In the spirit of Dr. King and Mr. Ghandi I would like to nominate Ms. Chastain for the Nobel Peace Prize.

    “It’s everybody’s fault but mine!” or “Everybody hates me because I’m always right!” or some other self-righteous crap.

    I wish they would just read some real history.

    Sincerely,
    Neil

      There were probably over 100,000 books written between 1895 and 1950 with the Lost Cause version of history. If fact, I would guess that objective history books on the late Rebellion probably didn’t outnumber the yearly total of Lost Cause-oriented books until maybe the past two decades or so. That gives these folks an awful lot of ammunition and sources to quote. The problem is that their sources are not very accurate in most particulars. Perhaps we should start an outreach program to send “real history” books to the leaders of the CBF movement. I’d call it Yankee evangelism!😉

    They weren’t wanted in DC. They are so used to farting in everyone’s church and nobody fighting back and then finally they met up with the people who wouldn’t take their crap.

    They all talk a big game, but in reality they ran scared when faced with college kids and DC residence who sent them a clear message which was “not in our town”!

    Lesson learned: don’t push your racist crap where it isn’t wanted.

    Is “Neo-Yankee” even a word? Pardon my French, but what the fuck is a “Neo-Yankee”? An American?

    Brooks,
    You are 100% right. Trying to follow the logic in those statements is difficult. Does Carl actually equate the Confederate Heritage Movement to the movements of Civil Rights and Indian Independence? Are Hathaway and Chastain on the same plane as Gandhi and King? Is the recent Flagger demonstration in D.C. comparable to the Pettus Bridge and the Salt Boycott? I would think the post would be in the humor file if you didn’t believe that Carl was sincere.
    BTW I didn’t know that I was a Socialist (I always thought I was a Democrat), now I have to find out where the local Socialist have their meetings so I can attend and help in plotting the end of humankind. LOL
