The Southern National Congress publishes a weekly internet article called "We Hold These Truths." Mr. Gene Andrews contributed this last article I believe Armadillo readers may find of interest.
I have always been proud of my time spent as an officer in the United States Marine Corps. I served in the Republic of Vietnam in 1969 and, while I was certainly no "John Wayne" type, I tried to do my duty to the best of my ability and I did bring all of my platoon out of Vietnam alive.
This past summer, the son of a frend of mine was very 'gung ho' about joining the Marines and asked my opinion, which I tried to give as honestly as possible, warts and all. I don't know if my discussions had any influence on him, but he enlisted, completed all of the pre-enlistment tests and physical exams and went to all of the pre-enlistment meetings. To say the least, he was very excited about serving his country in the Corps.
Shortly before he left Nashville for boot camp, he was told he could not serve his country because he had a Confederate Battle Flag tattooed on his shoulder in an area that would be completely covered by a t-shirt, and certainly by his uniform.
When informed of this, I went to t! he local recruiting station that had processed this young man to see if I were getting the entire story. The recruiter, a staff sergeant, told me, "Yes, sir. The Marine Corps considers the Confederate Flag a 'hate symbol,' but if the young man in question had a state or U.S. flag tattoo, that would be acceptable."
I informed the young sergeant that my family had defended the State of Tennessee (also his home state) against a sadistic invasion under that flag and to call our sacred flag of honour a 'hate symbol was an insult to ALL southerners, but especially to those southereners who had risked or even given their lives in service to the Marine Corps. Southerners had served at Belleau Woods, at Taraw and Iwo Jima, at Inchon and the Chosin Reservoir, and at Khe Sahn and Hue City, but now we are no longer wanted in the politically-correct don't-offend-any-minorities military? (This was just prior to the Fort Hood massacre)
He was polite, even sympathetic, but said the flag policy was a Marine Corps policy from Headquarters Marine Corps and not a local decision. After informing the sergeant that it seemed to me that our military was building a mercenary force of illegal aliens while rejecting native-born Americans in order to have a ready force to turn, without question, on American citizens, I asked the sergeant if he had taken out the trash yet.
He replied that he hadn't.
I then said, "Please add these to the day's garbage," and returned my lieutenant's bars, my gold and silver Marine Corps emblem from my dress blues, my shooting badges and my Vietnam ribbons.
I, like many of you, have always been told, "Once a Marine, always a Marine," and "There are no ex-Marines, only former Marines," but for me that is no longer true.
I was born in the South. I was raised here. I raised my family in the South and some day, God-willing, I h! ope to b e buried in the native soil of our Southern homeland. I have always considered myself a Southerner first, and will remain so, despite any other organization that I may temporarily join.
I will never make a critical remark about a veteran, from any branch of the service, but from now on, I will do everything in my power to discourage any Southern young man, or lady, from becoming a future veteran. I am now an ex-Marine.
In his article Mr. Andrews presents yet another piece of evidence that the Federal Government is carrying on a second Reconstruction on the South and has been for some time. They have not only lied to assuage their guilt for the brutal, unconstitutional war they waged on our Southern Homeland--not to mention all that followed (which was even worse) they lie now to remove all obstacles between them and the forging and forcing of Brave New World on the whole populace, which has become little more than a society as docile as sheep.
One might think the military immune to the pervasive political correctness that intimidates politicians and dictates policy in Mordor on the Potomac, but this is not true. We had a shocking dose of how much under the thumb of government our military heads are in the aftermath of the Ft. Hood massacre. Only a day or so after the killing thousands of Americans were shocked and outraged to hear General Casey opine that the greatest casualty of this "tragedy" was the military's "diversity."
With his words we see laid bare just how greasy, how reptilian-like and cowardly these military administrators have become. They obviously value the favor of corrupt politicians and the company of the twittering Washington media cocktail crowd over the company of people of honor and courage, many of whom abide in the South.
Besides exposing just one more policy of the Federal Jihad upon the South Mr. Andrews also observes something else of great importance, but which few American's presently suspect. Let me explain.
People think the Feds are in collusion with business to let as many illegals in as possible for cheap labor. That's not the half of it––it's not even the real reason. Mr. Anderson tells us the real reason, clearly and unequivocally: The Feds want them here because most of them are ignorant and, easily controlled. They did not have American liberty given to them with their mother's milk. They did not breath it in the air of their homeland. When rebellion happens among the populace because of Federal abuses the Feds will have made sure many of these immigrants are in the military. Unlike most American youth, these immigrants will be ready and willing to attack and subdue the protesters without any compunction otherwise. Why should they hold back? Most of the protesters are, in their estimation, individuals who were against the illegals entering in the United States in the first place.
This idea of Mr. Andrews is not the fruit of some wild conspiracy theory. Nor is it the result of some kind of rightist paranoia. It has already happened. There is historical precedent and I'm not talking about Russia or China. I'm talking about the good ol' US of A.
Lincoln did that very thing when he brought in thousands of German immigrants to subdue the seceding Southern states. (He had to do this to fill the ranks since large numbers of northerners refused to join the Federal invasion and found ways out of Lincoln's illegal and unconstitutional draft.)
These German immigrants were quite willing to fight the South. Many of them had recently fought a failed war of consolidation in Germany in 1848. They believed in consolidation of government powers and were contemptuous of the old Federalism of the Founders. Consequently, they were more than happy to fight for what would be an unavoidable increase in consolidation of powers once the new Southern Republic has been defeated and destroyed.
With that historical background in mind it is not hard at all to see that Mr. Andrews observations are just as logical as prophetically prescient: IF the make up of the military were primarily American citizens, with its traditionally large representation from the South, many soldiers would balk at an all out attack on their own relatives and friends. But the illegals in the military, many being guaranteed amnesty and citizenship in exchange for their "service," will not have the slightest hesitation in "doing what needs to be done." Their fealty will lie with that mutant monstrosity of an abstraction that has usurped our original form of central government and they will care nothing for the citzens 'in rebellion" whom they are asked to attack.
In the past the Federal government has made it perfectly and repeatedly clear that it is the enemy of the South---the South, like a battered wife, has been the Fed's object of domestic abuse and vilification. The South has been left prostrate under the jackboot of the Federal government countless times.
We MUST NEVER forget that.
The Federal government hates us and always will. It does not hate us for what we do, but for who we are. Ergo, it seeks more to destroy us more than "reform" or "reconstruct" us.
We can only appease the Feds by our acts of contrition, despising the south and disavowing our ancestors, our heritage and our culture. Southerners who do find favor with the Feds are those who flatter Yankees and become Shills for the Yankee mythology. Only those among us who become Uncle Tom's on Uncle Sam's plantation, willingly placing the fetters of the Chattel upon our own wrists, are acceptable in Mordor.
Do not mis-understand. Our opining is not a mere parochial or provincial lament. We cannot truly defend the rights of one without defending the rights of all. Therrefore, we must also become aware of something that is fast emerging in the consciousness of Americans throughout the nation, as witnessed by the rapid growth of movements like the Tea Party. More and more are seeing that the Feds are not just the enemy of the South, but of ALL who love liberty. Our greatest struggle is not against a foreign enemy abroad, but an all too familiar enemy at home; that Mutant Grotesquery, that malevolent Impostor that sits directly across the river from the former home of Robert E. Lee on the Potomac.
Those southerners who fought for Southern independence did not know then, but if they could see today, they would know that in fighting they were fighting for all Americans everywhere and at all times who cherish liberty.
In contrast, the ignorant Yankee farm boys who were slaughtered like sheep on the fields of invasion thought they were fighting against the South then, but in reality they were fighting against the very liberty of their great grandchildren now.
These poor farm boys had been taught to work, but not to reason. Therefore, they did not know how to use simple deduction to come to the most reasonable and likely analysis of the situation in which they found themselves. Specifically, if the Federal government will, at a given time, wage total war to subdue one or several states, reducing them to little more than conquered provinces for the sake of special interests, it will attack and reduce ALL states that oppose it at all times to the same conditions of abject humiliation, devastation and penury. None will be spared!
We are fools to think otherwise.
My fear is we have slept too long, for this time the people will face a much more powerful army than the one faced by Washington and the colonists in 1776, or the one faced by General Leonidas Polk in 1863. It is a fearful prospect. Yet, with General Polk, we can say as we resist, “to fight against tyranny is to serve God.”
