Confederate Heritage Salutes Veterans

This is how they do it at Sea Raven Press, long known for its support of Confederate heritage correctness scholarship:

SRP 1.JPGOne million armed African American slaves supporting the Confederacy by taking up arms. That shows a certain ability in math as well as history. Where did they hide all these soldiers? General Lee wants to know.

And, by all means, honor the Confederate Battle Flag … like this:

SRP 2Of course, there are too many stars there, and the flag is shredded, but these are mere details.

And finally, we all know that Confederate heritage has nothing to do with present politics, right? Sure …

SRP 3

This is the sort of political correctness I’m sure some people who whine about it can get behind. Just ask Matthew Heimbach.

    So if one million “remained loyal” AND “took up arms for the” rebellion, that means 2.5 million supported the US?

    Just trying to unpack this one…

    And if 1 million took up arms, wow, where did they serve in 1861-65? How many lost their lives? Given the number of troops generally accepted as serving the rebellion, that would suggest that every confederate soldier and officer was “black” … Which at least is an interesting portrayal of the ethnic ancestry of the typical “southerner”…

    The mind boggles…

    The number of “Black Confederates” keeps going up, maybe they’re adjusting for inflation.
    BTW, Trump came out in favor of removing the CBF in Columbia and we all know about his Civil War knowledge. Maybe the million Black Confederates fought at the River of Blood. I hear there was quite a battle fought over a par 3, a least that’s what the monument says.
    Is anyone surprised that the “heritage correctness” crowd would fall for this con-man?

    The internet and social media have exposed this as a society where one clown can make something up out of whole cloth and the cattle swallow it. Nobody uses common sense; nobody asks any questions; and nobody looks for answers. We deserve what we get.

    I recently had a friend over at Civil War Talk forum make the following comment:

    “Bringing up historical fact to a Heritage advocate is like bringing a knife to a gun fight.”
