As we have recently seen, the “savage executioners” who rose up and slaughtered thousands of White settlers in Saint-Dominigue, France’s most important colony, exercised inhuman cruelty in their genocidal campaign. Their revolution destroyed one of the wealthiest societies in the world and created an impoverished, despotic Black-run country called Haiti. Needless to say, those White people who were able to flee to safety left. Hundreds of them sought refuge in the State of South Carolina.
These French colonists from Saint-Domingue were joined by others fleeing the choas and slaughter of the French Revolution in their home country. The September Massacres in Paris and the 1804 Haiti Massacre are examples of the senseless murder which defined the two Leftist revolutions and drove many to seek safety in Dixie. Southerners generously opened their arms to many of the victims.
Dr. David Ramsay (1749-1815) wrote of this episode in Southern history in his work Ramsay’s History of South Carolina: From Its First Settlement in 1670 to the Year 1808. He wrote:
A new variety of human misery was lately presented for the exercise of [South Carolina’s] hospitality. The insecurity of life, liberty, and property, in revolutionary France, and the indiscriminate massacre of Frenchmen in St. Domingo, drove several hundreds in the last years of the 18th century to the shores of Carolina. They were kindly received; and, such as were in need, received a temporary accommodation at the expense of the public. Most of them fixed their residence in or near Charleston.
These days South Carolina and other Southern States are forced to take in more and more Muslim “refugees” from the Middle East, endangering our citizens and imposing an alien and incompatible culture in our midst. However, once upon a time we “kindly received” White, Right-wing refugees we thought would fit in and add to our strength. And we supported them when necessary for a short time. Today, we are looted indefinitely to provide welfare, housing, free education, free healthcare and an assortment of other free services to people who pose a serious security risk and add nothing positive whatsoever to our society. The contrast between the kinds of people to whom we offered refuge then and those we are forced to take in now is stark.
If Southerners were again free we could set our own refugee policy, perhaps accepting Afrikaners and Rhodesians fleeing genocide at the hands of hostile Black Leftist regimes. And we could again close our door to the Third World and its violence, chaos and poverty.
