After they’ve taken down all the statues, what’s next?

Fox News compiled a list of the Confederate Statues that have been removed from around the country. While the list is not complete, it is enough to cause the blood of any Christian Southerner to boil.

The most recent outrage, and perhaps the most flagrant thus far, was by Mayor Jim Strickland and the City Council of Memphis, Tennessee.

Of course, the liberal Atlantic magazine lauded the move, and if you have the stomach for it, you can read the full article here:

The article is full of lies and unmitigated hatred against Forrest, the Confederacy, and the South.  Even so, the stench of the unlawful and immoral treachery of city officials cannot be covered up, even by The Atlantic.

I’ll spare you and share some details from the article, so you may forego that unpleasant task.

The article is entitled: “Memphis's Novel Strategy for Tearing Down Confederate Statues”

I suppose that “Novel” sounds better than illegal and treacherous, which is exactly what it was.

The article begins: 
In a surprise move Wednesday evening, the city sold two parks to a nonprofit corporation that promptly tore down monuments to Nathan Bedford Forrest and Jefferson Davis.
“Surprise” that’s rich! The article goes on to tell how that non-profit organization was formed in October and that equipment and personnel were already staged before the “surprise agreement” with the city was signed.

The article explains: 
When Memphians woke up Wednesday, they lived in a city that owned Health Science Park and Fourth Bluff Park, and that featured prominent public statues of Confederate President Jefferson Davis and General Nathan Bedford Forrest. When they woke up the morning after, neither was true.
And what has become of the statues? 
The statues have been removed to a place nobody can find, according to the city’s chief legal officer.
The article continues to describe the city’s actions as “stealthy”, “sudden”, “most unorthodox”, “a work around” and “a new legal maneuver.” This all from someone who fully supports the atrocity.

The article even opines that: 
[T]he decision could also elicit legal challenges and raises some awkward questions about the rule of law.
But when you’ve got a politically correct agenda, the “awkward” rule of law is of no consequence.

As the article notes, the city was blocked by state law from removing the statues, but political correctness always finds a way. And in spite of all the questions the article assures us that the illegal, immoral and treacherous removal of the statues was “a step forward” even though the city was “brazenly flouting” state law.

Finally the article concludes:
The distance between righteous civil disobedience and risky breakdown of rule of law is not as wide as it might seem, however, and it’s easy to imagine ways in which such a procedure could be abused. What if local authorities defied state or federal authorities to erect a pro-Confederate statue?
But such a move would not fall within the politically correct agenda of our Amerikan controllers and we can rest assured that it would not be allowed and that city officials would be arrested and removed from office.

One thing the article neglects to mention is that Jim Strickland is a carpetbagger from Indiana.

Another overlooked fact is that the Forrest statue was actually a headstone for the graves of General Forrest and his wife. Just what might now become of their graves and earthly remains is yet to be seen. Perhaps they will be dug up and their bones burned, as happened with the Bible translator and committed Christian, John Wycliffe.

So, after all the statues are gone, what will be left to destroy? The answer should be rather obvious. The “final solution” is to rid the country and the world of Christian Southerners and our descendants. 

I can’t help but to think that Major Innes Randolph was right in the sentiments that he expressed after the war in his song “The Good Ol’ Rebel”. Those words have come to pretty much express my own thoughts, though I try to avoid some of the language he employed.


by Major Innes Randolph, C.S.A.

Oh, I'm a good old Rebel soldier, now that's just what I am;
For this "Fair Land of Freedom" I do not give a damn!
I'm glad I fit against it, I only wish we'd won,
And I don't want no pardon for anything I done.

I hates the Constitution, this "Great Republic," too!
I hates the Freedman's Bureau and uniforms of blue!
I hates the nasty eagle with all its brags and fuss,
And the lying, thieving Yankees, I hates 'em wuss and wuss!

I hates the Yankee nation and everything they do,
I hates the Declaration of Independence, too!
I hates the "Glorious Union" -- 'tis dripping with our blood,
And I hates their striped banner, and I fit it all I could.

I followed old Marse Robert for four years, near about,
Got wounded in three places, and starved at Point Lookout.
I cotched the "roomatism" a'campin' in the snow,
But I killed a chance o' Yankees, and I'd like to kill some mo'!

Three hundred thousand Yankees is stiff in Southern dust!
We got three hundred thousand before they conquered us.
They died of Southern fever and Southern steel and shot,
But I wish we'd got three million instead of what we got.

I can't take up my musket and fight 'em now no more,
But I ain't a'gonna love 'em, now that's for sartain sure!
I do not want no pardon for what I was and am,
And I won't be reconstructed, and I do not care a damn!


I’ll tell you this -- the yankee nation ain’t my country – and the yankee flag ain’t my flag . . .

Here I stand, so help me God!
