If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?

“If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?”

If we read the Psalm in its entirety, we find the answer.

Psalms 11:1-7 
To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. In the LORD put I my trust: how say ye to my soul, Flee as a bird to your mountain?  (2)  For, lo, the wicked bend their bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart.  (3)  If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?  (4)  The LORD is in his holy temple, the LORD'S throne is in heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men.  (5)  The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.  (6)  Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup.  (7)  For the righteous LORD loveth righteousness; his countenance doth behold the upright.

We might summarize that answer thusly: Continue to trust God; Continue to obey His revealed will; Continue to do right.

On every side the wicked are destroying the foundations. No surprise -- that’s their nature.


They seek to tear down every remembrance of our Godly Confederate ancestors and every acknowledgement of their righteous Cause.

There is very little we can do to stop them. Some of those poor deluded souls who marched in Charlottesville chanted: “You will not replace us”, while bearing flaming torches. I know, calling them deluded is giving the benefit of the doubt to some, who undoubtedly simply sought confrontation with their perceived enemies. Enemies that are ever so just like themselves in their tactics and in their desire to impose their statist vision on others.


The truth is, we have been replaced on campuses like the University of Virginia. We have been replaced in cities like Charlottesville, with their Carpetbagger mayor and their White-hating vice-mayor -- and this is generally the case all across our beloved Southland in the larger cities and at the centers of “higher learning”.

So, what is the dedicated and patriotic Southerner to do?

Continue to do right! Continue to stand! Continue to trust God!

Some may have grandiose ideas of seizing our lost campuses and cities, but that is clearly beyond our present power. We can, however, do what we can do.

- We can secede in our own hearts and minds. Abjure the yankee realm.

- We can refuse to fly the striped rag of our occupiers.

- We can refuse to join their armed forces.


- We can refuse to recite their South-hating, socialist “Pledge of Allegiance.”

- We can hoist our own Battle Flags on our own private property.


- We can refuse to yoke with those who may superficially resemble us, but whose goals and principles directly contradict our own and those of our forebears -- such as the Nazis and the modern Klan (that has no real connection to the original organization of that name – not historically, not politically, not philosophically, not morally).

- We can fly your own state flags in the place of the Evil Amerikan Empire’s flag.


- We can withdraw our consent in any number of ways, by refusing to participate in their bogus political dog and pony shows. [I won’t vote in a national election for the next emperor to occupy the throne in Babylon on the Potomac]


- We can withhold our support from those who hate our guts, be they corporations or industry or sports, such as the NCCA, the SEC, NASCAR, the NFL, the NBA, MLB, etc., etc.


- We can form and support small local organizations like Free Florida First and meet together to educate, and to encourage like-minded folks.

- We can display our Southern culture in our own dress (T-shirts; lapel pins; ties, etc.).


- We can install Southern Crosses of Honor on the graves of our Confederate dead.

- We can visit historical sites; battlefields; monuments (that still exist) and show our support for the Cause.

And I’m sure you can think of much more. Perhaps we cannot prevent the destruction or relocation of monuments to the South’s righteous cause, but we can erect our own monuments in the clothes we wear, the bumper stickers we place on our vehicles, the pictures we display in our own homes, etc.

Do you bemoan the loss of a Confederate memorial and yet you do not yourself display any remembrances of the Confederacy in your own home or upon your own person?

Let us be our own memorials to those who went before us in word, in deed, in dress, and in decor.

Suppose our children can no longer see any memorials to the Confederate Cause in the public square – let them see them upon their parents and grandparents.

When the children of Israel crossed into the Promised Land, the Lord instructed Joshua to erect a pillar of stones that would be a memorial to subsequent generations, and that would serve to elicit questions from the youth.

Joshua 4:6-7
(6)That this may be a sign among you, that when your children ask their fathers in time to come, saying, What mean ye by these stones?  (7)  Then ye shall answer them, That the waters of Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant of the LORD; when it passed over Jordan, the waters of Jordan were cut off: and these stones shall be for a memorial unto the children of Israel for ever.

We cannot depend upon a world that hates us and our ancestors to raise or maintain our memorials. We must do it ourselves.

Let us go our own way. Let us build our own culture. Let us, by the grace of God, live FREE!
