Joshua Giddings on the South

Ohio

In light of John Bonaccorsi’s comments in the Lincoln-Douglas Debates thread, I will share another excerpt from America Aflame: How The Civil War Created a Nation:

“The danger to the South and its institutions was no longer abstract, as the prayer of Ohio Republican congressman Joshua Giddings demonstrated: “I look forward to the day when there shall be a servile insurrection in the South, when the black man … shall assert his freedom, and wage a war of extermination against his master; when the torch of the incendiary shall light up the towns and cities of the South, and blot out the last vestige of slavery. And yet I may not mock at their calamity, nor laugh when their fear cometh, yet I will hail it as the dawn of a political millennium.”

Such is the only mindset that could have ever created and sustained BRA.

  1. Emphasize SUSTAIN. Because it must be clear to anyone with eyes to see that the same feverish mass murderers are still at work.

  2. “Nor laugh when their fear cometh.” Sounds as if this Giddings has been spending too much time in the company of the King James Bible. That, I suspect, explains most of the derangement in English America, North and South.

  3. Hunter – don’t listen to ANY-ONE deny the reality, the mind-set, of that Giddings freak. It’s still very much in place. Scarily so – cause it’s merged with flat-out Marxism. Yankees are deranged Negrophiliacs. Secede as fast as you can.

  4. Canada until recently avoided these problems. It is in large part Anglo-Scot. Very King James, up until the the negro influx and the egalitarians took over.

  5. Incidental but Obama is in office because of the millenial generation voter. It was always a category I had trouble with. It’s a messianic sounding designation.

  6. I don’t think so.

    Quite simply, the culprit was ideological fanaticism. The real problem is the tendency of Yankees to define themselves ideologically and to think in terms of liberal abstractions like “liberty” and “equality.”

    Evangelical Christianity existed in the North and the South. In the South, evangelical Christianity was “the handmaiden of white supremacy.” In the North, evangelical Christianity inspired Harriet Beecher Stowe to write Uncle Tom’s Cabin, which was banned in every Southern state.

    Yankees are always trying to resolve the “contradictions” to their ideology. Back then it was slavery. Now it is “marriage equality.” It will be something else ten years from now because the North has never been content with itself.

  7. In the South, evangelical Christianity was “the handmaiden of white supremacy.”

    And that wasn’t derangement. It wasn’t derangement to bring vast numbers of beings of a type starkly different from one’s own to live among one’s people and to think that by constraining them to behave in superficial conformity with one’s ways that one was bringing them the light of Christ.

    Thanks for explaining.

    As per Apuleius, Yankeeland is Island of Misfit Toys.

    Obama as King Moonracer. Biden as “Charlie”.

  9. John B, yankees made their own attempts at creating a slaved based economy and brought the slaves in. get off your moral high horse because the history of your people doesn’t support it.

    No one is more ignorant of yankee history and yankee’ s false moral superiority then the damnyankee themselves

  10. “No one is more ignorant of yankee history and yankee’ s false moral superiority then the damnyankee themselves”

    Truer words have never been spoken. It never ceases to amaze me when they blindly hold forth on slavery or any other yankee cause du jour. Usually about half way through the harangue they reveal how perfectly mommy professor indoctrination substitutes for real knowledge and a grasp of the facts.

    Tamer, I would like to apologize for defaming the misfit toys by such a comparison.

    Yankees must fancy themselves to be like King Moonracer, dumping all the “wretched refuse” misfit peoples on Amurrica. Somebody make them stop.

    After all, “no child wants to play with a Charlie in the box.”
