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.
