“Cooter” and Alabama SCV Cut Deal With Union Springs

Dukes Of Hazzard

Gary Carlyle, the Alabama Division Commander of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, finally waded into the Confederate flag controversy that has been brewing in Union Springs with this bit of slapstick comedy the other night:

“It was the Southern Soldier that was the determining factor of defeating Great Britain in the war for Americans Independence. General Cornwallis surrendered in Virginia. Prodigy of the gallant men and women who fought in the war for Independence fought again in another war with England in 1812. It was the Southern men of many Races, who with Andrew Jackson defeated the English Army at New Orleans and secured U.S,’s claim to the land of the Louisiana Purchase. When their lands were invaded in 1861 the grandsons of the American War for Independence gathered again to defend home, family, and fireside. In their ranks were Asians, Hispanics, Hebrews, Africans Americans, American Indians, Cubans, and other Nationalities along with many Northern citizens. A note overlooked by most historians is there were more slave states in the U.S. than in the Confederacy when Lincoln called for the invasion of Southern States. Also, more slave owners fought for the U.S. than for the Confederacy. Remember, Delaware was the last State to legally have slaves and Massachusetts was the first Colony to have slaving laws for Whites, American Indians, and Blacks. One should read what was said and published in the 1864 Democrat National Convention in Chicago.

As for the Spanish American war,” Every soldier’s grave made during our unfortunate civil war [sic] is a tribute to American valor… And the time has now come… when in the spirit of fraternity we should share in the care of the graves of the Confederate soldiers… and if it needed further justification it is found in the gallant loyalty to the Union and the flag so conspicuously shown in the year just passed by the sons and grandsons of those heroic dead.” …President William McKinley, 14 December 1898. Every war that the U.S. has entered, the Southern Soldiers have proven a great defender of America. At D-Day on the beaches of the war head, it was the descendants of the old Stonewall brigade that first broke through.

Today, we the Sons of Confederate Veterans honor all our Veterans and many in our ranks are Veterans. We the Sons of Confederate Veterans are outraged at the act of Myron Penn of dishonoring Southern Veterans graves. Federal law P.L.38, 59congress Chap. 631-34 Stat. 56 passed by the U.S. Congress places Confederate Graves with same rights, respect, and privileges as all U.S. Veterans.

Where is the unity, tolerance, and togetherness in denying free speech to those who wish to honor their forefathers? The Hebrew, American Indian, African American, Hispanic, American Cuban, and many others along with many “Whites” who accepted their responsibility to maintain liberty are worthy to be recognized and honored.

Alabama Division Commander of the Sons of Confederate Veterans”

Hurr durr … Don’t forget the cisgendered Cherokee Confederates, the bisexual Tejanos, the Jewish transsexuals or the African-American lesbians who fought for the Confederacy. We must never forget their heroic sacrifices!

What could possibly be lamer than that? Well this

“Union Springs Mayor Saint T. Thomas, Jr. has approved a request from the Sons of Confederate Veterans to place Confederate flags and United States flags in the cemetery behind the Red Door Theatre. The request was sent in writing to the City of Union Springs on May 22, 2015. Mayor Thomas told the Herald he approved their request to place flags in the cemetery on May 23, 2015, but instructed the organization to remove the flags before 10:00 a.m. on May 30, 2015. This is the request which was sent to the City of Union Springs by the Sons of Confederate Veterans. …”

Get ready for this too:

“Ben Jones, Chief of Heritage Operations for the 30,000 member Sons of Confederate Veterans, an international organization of men who are directly descended from those who fought for the Confederacy, praised the Mayor for “taking a clear stance for healing and reconciliation.”

“The removal of these flags from the graves of our ancestors was a terribly wrong-headed, provocative and divisive action,” said Jones. “No amount of political sanctimony can excuse it. Our membership asks that this ceremony on Saturday will be given the respect and reverence it deserves by all. We are grateful for the leadership of Mayor Thomas during this time, and we are hopeful that the event will take place in an atmosphere of reflection and genuine understanding.”

Ben “Cooter” Jones, the Chief of Heritage Operations for the Sons of Confederate Veterans, doesn’t mention in his official press release that he agreed to remove the flags from the Union Springs graveyard a week later.

Hurr durr … it is offensive and provocative when Myron Penn removes Confederate flags from Confederate graves, but when the Mayor of Union Springs and the Union Springs City Council does it twice, it is an illustration of their great leadership and reflects an “atmosphere of reflection and genuine understanding.”

Cooter might be crazy y’all, but he ain’t dumb!

Update: According to Al.com, Gary Carlyle said the flags would be removed “in a timely manner as to not interfere with the maintenance of the cemetery.” The Mayor of Union Springs has now converted the Alabama SCV into his cat’s paw for removing Confederate flags from Confederate graves! Surely, Thomas deserves at least some credit for negotiating such a deft surrender?

Hurr durr!!!

Escape From Bullock County

While former Alabama State Senator Myron Penn and the Mayor of Union Springs have focused their attention on the burning issue of Confederate flags decorating Confederate graves in a Confederate cemetery on Confederate Memorial Day, the real problems facing the city and county are being neglected:

0521151832
0521151834

Has anyone noticed all these yard signs which have sprouted up in Union Springs? Who are the Bullock County Crimestoppers?

“A shooting on Highway 82 in Bullock County. The next day in Union Springs a minister reportedly got robbed while sipping coffee on his own front porch.

Meet the man who’s tired of it all.

“I’m fed up with the crime in Union Springs and Bullock County,” said Courtney Woodfaulk, head of the Bullock County Crimestoppers program.

Courtney Woodfaulk, born and raised in Union Springs, believes he’s answering the call to try to do something about the rising crime rate, up 40% in the last year, according to Woodfaulk. The crimes have been primarily burglaries. Woodfaulk says part of his motivation stems from a close encounter his own son had with death in Atlanta.

“My son was shot in the home invasion,” Woodfaulk said. …

What happens if you get shot by a dindu in Union Springs or Bullock County? Suppose you are bleeding out in your own home. Maybe your dear old grandmother has had a heart attack or fallen down the stairs. Well, it seems that Bullock County is so broke that it can’t even afford ambulances anymore:

“It’s a service many people count on when there’s an emergency, but Bullock County could lose its only ambulance service.

The hospital board which maintains the ambulances says it’s running out of money to pay for the service. According to hospital board member Thomas May, the ambulance service needs about $100 thousand this year to fund the costs of running ambulances. …”

Violent crime. Poverty. Unemployment. Terrible schools. Corruption. Illegal aliens. Blighted homes. Abandoned businesses. Bankruptcy. Kudzu. Such are the fruits of Myron Penn, Billy Beasley, and Mayor Saint T. Thomas Jr. A city and county so broke and hopeless that Mad Max and Rick Grimes would feel at home here.

Confederate flags …. that’s the real problem!

The Sesquisentennial of the War for Southern Independence as Symbolic of the Fallen State of the South

Excellent read.

“With the Sesquicentennial of the epic war of American history winding down, many may think this War no longer particularly relevant and we can move on to more current concerns. Such an attitude, which I dare say prevails among most Americans, Southerners included, ignores the watershed importance of the War known by any number of names, the “Civil War,” the War Between the States, the War for Southern Independence, the Confederate War, the War of Northern Aggression, Lincoln’s War, the War Against Southern Independence, and by other names. …

In the reconstituted Union created after the North’s complete victory, the North commanded all the power and all the institutions of the U. S. as a whole and ever since has led the U. S. The South has had to conform and adjust and reconstruct itself, or be coerced to accomplish these things in “compliance” with the standards and the laws and the prevailing “moralities” of U. S. majorities, which time and again on issues of the utmost importance have prevailed against the will and culture and values of the South ….”

Note: I do have one criticism … the word “Jew” isn’t mentioned anywhere in this article, but that’s understandable because this essay was published at The Abbeville Institute. The Jewish Question is vital to understanding how and why the South, North, and the West have changed so much since World War II.

Think about it: Jewish billionaires are writing checks which effectively allow them to buy and control US senators in Arkansas, South Carolina, and Florida.

A Tour of Union Springs, AL

Here are some of the highlights of Union Springs, AL.

While I was down there yesterday evening, I took the liberty of snapping some photos around town. My travelogue essay on Selma was a big hit. Hopefully, these photos will help the rest of America get a better sense of what it is like to live in a small Southern town that is 75 percent black and 7 percent Hispanic. I’ve always thought of Union Springs as a microcosm of America’s majority-minority future.

0519151752

I’ve always wondered who lives in this lavender house in Union Springs. Could it be The Great Grape Ape?

0519151746

A Hispanic family now live in this blighted old home. Notice the clothesline on the front porch. Lots of illegal aliens live in Union Springs and work at the Wayne Farms chicken plant. They have taken over the finest old homes in the center of town and have reduced them to this. Whenever I am driving through Union Springs, I never cease to be struck by the jarring contrast to the Eufaula Historic District.

Deadline Passes: Confederate Flags Still In Union Springs Confederate Cemetery

As promised, I drove to Union Springs, AL this evening in the hope of catching Union Springs city employees on video in the act of removing the Confederate Battle Flags from the Confederate graves in the Confederate cemetery. The flags were still on display when I arrived there. No one was in the graveyard.

This video was shot around 6:15 PM. I assume the flags will be removed sometime tonight under the cover of darkness, but we will see if they are still there tomorrow:

Mayor of Union Springs Issues Executive Order to Remove Confederate Flags From Confederate Graves In Confederate Cemetery

Saint T. Thomas Jr., Mayor of Union Springs, AL

Saint T. Thomas Jr., Mayor of Union Springs, AL

The Confederate Battle Flag controversy in Union Springs is escalating.

Yesterday, I reported that some Southern patriot had restored 10 of the small Confederate Battle Flags to the graves of the Confederate soldiers buried in the Confederate cemetery in Union Springs, AL.

Last night, Al.com and WSFA 12 again carried the story which has evoked a strong negative reaction from the public. Among other national media outlets, The Washington Times and Fox News have picked up the story, which is now spreading through both the liberal and conservative blogosphere.

Mayor Saint T. Thomas Jr. of Union Springs has announced his plan to quell racial tension and make the controversy go away: at a meeting of the Union Springs City Council, he issued an executive order to instruct city employees to remove the Confederate flags from the Confederate cemetery by 6 PM this evening.

Presumably, once he does that then this row will all blow over. It’s not like having the city remove the Confederate flags from the graves in the Confederate cemetery will further polarize his community, antagonize Confederate heritage groups, and attract yet more statewide and national media attention to Union Springs.

Note: Mayor Saint T. Thomas Jr. needs some help. I want to do my part.

So here is what I am going to do: I’m going to drive down to Union Springs, snap some photos, and film Union Springs city employees removing the Confederate Battle Flags from the graves of Confederate soldiers in the Confederate cemetery. Then I am going to publish it here and upload it to Facebook and YouTube.

Hillary Clinton’s Jewish Handler

saban-clintonI’m surprised that National Review would publish this, but for some reason the “mainstream” has been becoming much more open to discussing how Jewish oligarchs are the puppeteers behind American politicians:

“Weeks after Hillary Clinton became secretary of state, the State Department objected to a proposed consultancy arrangement offered to Bill Clinton by media mogul Haim Saban, citing concerns about conflict of interest. Nevertheless, public records show that Saban’s nonprofit gave millions to the Clinton Foundation throughout Hillary Clinton’s tenure.

Saban, a billionaire best known for creating Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, has dual U.S.-Israeli citizenship and has spent heavily to support Israel. “His greatest concern, he says, is to protect Israel, by strengthening the United States-Israel relationship,” The New Yorker noted in a 2010 profile of Saban. At a conference in Israel, the article said, Saban had outlined three methods for influencing American politics: “make donations to political parties, establish think tanks, and control media outlets.” …

Yet between 2009 and 2013, as Hillary Clinton served as secretary of state, the Saban Family Foundation paid the Clinton Foundation more than $7 million, and listed $30.5 million in “grants and contributions approved for future payment,” according to nonprofit records filed with the Internal Revenue Service. It’s unclear whether there was any overlap between the $7 million paid and $30.5 million committed to the Clinton Foundation in those years.”…

Note: I believe Haim Saban also owns Univision which is now the largest television network in the US.
