A Republican president refused to remove troops from a former U.S. fort. That fort was wholly within the territory of another sovereign nation, and that nation had lawfully demanded their withdrawal. Eventually a bloody war ensued.
That president was Abraham Lincoln. The fort was Fort Sumter. The sovereign nation was South Carolina. And the war that ensued was the “War of Northern Aggression.” (Commonly and erroneously known as the “American Civil War”.)
Before that war was over, something on the order of one million Americans died as a direct result of the tyranny, hubris, and blind hatred of Abraham Lincoln and his supporters.
This week another Republican president, Donald J. Trump, has asserted that he will not remove U.S. troops from bases in the sovereign nation of Iraq, though that nation has ordered their withdrawal. It is highly likely that war will ensue in the Middle East as a result of this Amerikan hubris and arrogance.
I would like to direct a couple of questions to my fellow Southerners:
How can you continue to support (nay, virtually worship) this liberal New York yankee in the White House, as he continues to repeat the tyrannies of Abraham Lincoln, not only in Iraq, but here at home as well?
How many must die as a result of the Amerikan Empire’s inability to mind its own business before your eyes will be opened?
How many sons and daughters of the South must be sacrificed to the Amerikan Leviathan before you will say, ENOUGH?
It is astonishing to me that some of you still get upset when I assert that it: “Ain’t My Flag; Ain’t My Country.”
General Lee issued an Order to his troops in 1863 that contained the following prayer. It ought to still be the prayer of all true Southerners:
“God is our only refuge and our strength. Let us humble ourselves before Him. Let us confess our many sins, and beseech Him to give us a higher courage, a purer patriotism, and more determined will; that He will hasten the time when war, with its sorrows and sufferings, shall cease, and that He will give us a name and place among the nations of the earth.”
In the words of my president, Jefferson F. Davis, spoken to the Confederate Congress on the ratification of our Constitution:
“We desire peace at any sacrifice save that of honor and independence; we seek no conquest, no aggrandizement, no concession of any kind from the States with which we were lately confederated; all we ask is to be let alone; that those who never held power over us shall not now attempt our subjugation by arms.”
I suppose that this is all that the people of Iraq and the Middle East would ask.
The problem is that yankee governments CANNOT leave anyone alone. Not at home and not abroad.
I cannot change the immoral, illegal, and unconstitutional policies of Donald Trump and the yankee government in Babylon on the Potomac, but I can assure you of this much: I WILL NOT SUPPORT IT! I WILL SPEAK OUT AGAINST IT! I WILL RESIST!
Give this some thought and determine where you stand. The yankees will not allow you to remain neutral. They demand your reverence and obeisance. They shall not have mine!
God Bless the Sovereign State of Florida! – AND -- God Bless all the Confederate States of America!
