Confederate cleansing in the 21st Century, and the Slave Blame Game (and what you should know to counter the lies )
Im going to use this column to hit on several slave facts to give you strong rebuttal ammo on this whole
slave blame thing. First thing is, dont try and justify it and dont let your antagonist talk in presentism we
all know it went on since the beginning of man, it was wrong, and most knew it always was, yet indeed it still
goes on today, in the same Continent it seems to have always gone on. But what was, was and it was a legal
bondage welfare system. But what we are facing is the blame for it, like our ancestors sailed off to Africa
under a battle flag, marched into the interior, rounded up people, and brought them only to a few Southern
states, and then died by the tens of thousands to keep them enslaved. Thus, That Flag Stood for Slavery
and if you support that flag you believe in slavery, due to a war they claim was to free slaves.
OK, now you need to draw the line, and start pointing out facts. That flag NEVER flew over a slave ship
whereas, the U.S. Flag did. That ALL New World Colonies (later States) and territories, and I mean ALL, not just North America New World, but South America New World as well legally bought, sold and
owned slaves. So, which flag should these blame gamers really be hating? They dont have a clue, do you?
Fact alert, its Portugal who tops the list with thirty thousand voyages to buy 4,650,000 slaves. That is FOUR MILLION, SIX HUNDRED FIFTY THOUSAND SLAVES for resale folks, with Spain and
France coming in 2nd and 3rd place, with 4,000 voyages and 1 to 1.5 million slaves. While the British/North
America & United States come in at the bottom, at sixth of a 7 country list, and not only that, but most of
these four million slaves ended up in Brazil, so where is the population of USA or Brazil, burning Portu-
guese flags? Well? No, the ignorant slave history revisionists hate a four year flag, with no slave ships. Ask
them why they dont hate the Portuguese, Spanish, French and their flags, if they really believe in their convictions. Next factoid, these countries did not go inland hunting slaves. Africans were then, and still are, a tribal people loyal to their own tribes, not to Africa as a nation. It was big business, for the coastal tribes to
raid inland and deliver captured slaves for sale. It made their respective tribes rich, and powerful, and took
out the competition.
Here is a killer fact, per the Constitution, for you...verbatim: Section 9, Limits of Congress 1. The impor-
tation of the African race from any foreign country other than the slave holding states or Territories of the
United States of America , is hereby forbidden; and Congress is required to pass such laws as to effectively
prevent same. By whose Constitution is importing slaves illegal in March of 1861? That would be the
Constitution of the Confederate States of America. Say What? Yes, Im telling you that while they left the
institution in place, to figure out how it would run its course, they also wrote that importation was officially
illegal. Hmm...and did so, two years before Lincolns so called Emancipation Proclamation, and four years
before the United States declared an end to slavery, with the 13 th Amendment. Yes, its TRUE. Know it, learn it, speak it !
Lets follow up on this, so called, great emancipator Lincolns emancipation proclamation that freed the slaves as
youve been taught, a bit deeper. Its a bold faced lie, and always was. You must know, and point out, that it freed
not a single slave. NOT ONE. Read it. Im not going to type it, but essentially it stated that all slaves in the States in Rebellion were free. Well now, thats interesting Mr. Lincoln was not the President of those states. They had their
own President, Congress, etc., he could no sooner pass a law there than he could for Australia or Antarctica. But
further, and even more critical to your reply, is the actual fine print It EXCLUDED freeing any slaves where he
actually had control, and had the power to free them. Yes, true, such as the slave holding states that were still under his control and paying taxes, and conscripting men to fight his illegal war. Those States would be Maryland, Dela-
ware, Kentucky, and Missouri. All were to remain slave states, and even his illegally established state of West Virginia
was admitted into the Union, after the war was under way, as a slave State. Now get this, on top of that, the Proclama-
tion had even more qualifiers, excluding the freeing of slaves in Southern State territories controlled by his armed
forces. Locally, this included Norfolk, Princess Anne, Berkley, Accomac, and Northampton Counties, the Cities of
Norfolk, Portsmouth, Elizabeth City, and York; same deal in Louisiana any parish (county) the North actually
controlled equaled no deal, no freedom. In his own words left precisely as if this proclamation were not issued. So the whole thing was a crock from the get go. Where he had control he freed none, and where he had no control he
pretended to free all. Truth Bomb.
Ok heres another absolutely unknown fact for your argument pleasure. The Northern Capital of Washington, DC
also had plenty of slaves when this war was started, by Lincoln. It was a year into the war before he even dealt with
that issue coming up, with the Compensated Act to buy the property of slave owners at up to $300 each, from those
who owned them in DC. AND get this, also pay any newly freed slave 100 bucks if they wanted to leave the country, for Liberia, or Haiti. Think about it.with all the money he used, to kill Americans, why didnt he just use that money
instead, to continue that policy to end slavery? Well, like he himself said if I could preserve the Union without free-
ing a single slave I would the war wasnt over slavery. How could it be? You see, I forgot to mention that not only
did slave states stay in the Union, but the non-state Territories of Oklahoma, New Mexico, Utah, Nebraska, and
Washington were allowed to remain slave holding, so the numbers say he had 5 slave states and 5 slave territories, but
we are to believe it was a war against slavery? Plus, if he hadnt started the war at Fort Sumter, then called on other
states to help him kill Americans, then Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Arkansas would have still been in
the Union as slave states. That was 9 U.S. slave states vs 7 C.S.A slave states at the beginning of his planned war (plus
the slave territories). Well, thats rather interesting...when the war was started, the U.S. slave states outnumbered the
C.S.A. slave states. In fact, even after 4 more States seceded if you count Territories it was officially 10 U.S. slave vs
11 C.S. slave and was about 11 to 11, at the very beginning, before Kansas was admitted as a free state, changing from
a slave Territory. Hmmm...
What Im saying here, is know the facts. Speak the truth. There is no way our flag was a slave flag, as it is being
called, and Lincolns war was not about slavery. Our flag was a proud rallying point for men, almost all of whom nei-
ther owned, nor would ever own, slaves. They did, however, suffer and die on the field of honor, protecting their
families, homes, land, and their Nation from an invading army. PERIOD.

Removing Rebel flag wont solve problem of racism A Belle's Eye View

I am constantly amazed by the lack of logic exhibited by those who would take complex
situations and chose to solve them by a simple, yet illogical, means.
The latest demonstration of this is those who are taking the tragedy in Charleston and warping it
to make it about the Confederate flag. [See todays editorial.]
It seems there is quite a hue and cry for those who believe that by taking down the flag, racism
will be solved. Ta-da! Easy, peasy, lemon squeezy.
I guess it makes sense that those who would take the multitude of factors which lead to the War
