Recently done has been the marketing of fear and the instilling of national paranoia,
in order to commit usurpation and gain power, not in the fashion of Lenin or Hitler,
but rather in the fashion of Jefferson Davis. Do not be deceived. The old phrase,
"the South will rise again," was not stated in jest. However, in the Year 2011,
the former Confederate South was burning again and again and again, as in drought-
ridden Texas, parched Georgia, and the Carolinas. This time, the engulfing flames
were not compliments of an enraged Tecumseh Sherman. They were compliments
of an enraged nature that unleashed its abandonment of man in the direction of man
Talk about twisting the facts and spinning something around to the point of making
the instigator look like the victim. A line item review is needed at this point, being
that there are Republicans now blaming all of America's woes on Obama, despite
the historic fact that the greatest economic crisis since the Great Depression took
place in 2008. Obama didn't take office until 2009.
Not County Militias, my friend. Rather, National Unity is the needed goal.
Beware of those who present themselves as the "oath keeping," "Constitutional Free-
dom Fighters," and "Resistance." The red flag phrases to watch out for are County
Militia and County Possé. The manifesto of these individuals is nothing more than
the diatribes of "States' Rights," Jefferson Davis, and neo-Confederate Secession
from the Union. It's merely more pernicious, these days. Very simply, they want to
bring back the deregulated spirit of the Confederate South, yet they pretend that they
are defending the United States Constitution.
The States' Rights proponents want a convenient dictatorship free from federal over-
sight and accountability. They want to have no federal watchdog to protect the com-
mon citizens in their locales, and they want no one nudging the Good Ole Boys' con-
sciences out of their collective comatose state. It's nothing more than that.
For the record, the guest on the radio talk show who was barking out the phrases,
"County Militia," "County possé," and "States' Rights" in cult leader cadence had a
Southern accent. However, ...
Not all southerners are this way. Some are like Mike Wallace on Sixty Minutes.
Some have ridden the rodeo and are fun. Some think in terms of moving forward.
Some are from the French part of Louisiana, while others have parents from the
northern states. But, the States' Rights Gang are all trouble, always and in every
way. Each one is nothing more than the Jim Jones-type of cult leader, marketing
fear, in order to create hostility toward those whom they perceive as thwarting
their goal, so that you will go out and fight their States' Rights war for them.
If you were to take a drive to Charleston and then stroll throughout its more scenic
avenues, you would pass (unless someone recently tore it down) a building upon
which is prominently affixed the title, the Daughters of the Confederacy. This
is no different than having an association called the Daughters of Nazi Germany.
Both the Confederacy and Nazi Germany caused the deaths of numerous gentlemen
raised in the northern states. This is States' Rights anti-diplomacy.
The Asininity of States' Rights in the Modern Era
We live in the era of rapid transit. In the same one day, a person can start in New
York City, stop-off in Cleveland, make another stop in Denver, and then end up
on the West Coast before the sun goes down. Communications go State to State
in seconds. Interstate travel is par for the course amongst trucking firms. Corpor-
ations operate in numerous states. There needs to be a Uniform Code put into ac-
tion that will apply to all citizens and businesses from the Atlantic Coastline to the
Pacific Ocean. The States' Rights Ideology is asinine, isolationist, and oppressive.
Incidentally, humans have rights; not States. Remember what Hitler was quoted as
having asserted. He stated that the solitary human is not to be considered, being that
the human dies, but the State continues onward. Hitler failed to realize that the State
was made for man and NOT man for the State. In as much, there is no such thing as
States' Rights in the mind of the Eternal God. There are only the rights of the citizens
in those States.
The Geneva Convention States Otherwise
In the spirit of marketing paranoia, the individual on the radio stated that a soldier
could kill any other soldier if he wants to, no questions asked. The fact is that the
Geneva Convention expressly forbade shooting an already-injured soldier. If an
individual goes on a right wing radio talk show and states something, it doesn't au-
tomatically mean he's correct. After all, the Bush-backers on the radio in 2003
were 100% wrong about Iraq and their claims about the non-existent Weapons
of Indiscriminate Destruction. Test things for cracks. Test the Spirits, literally.
Discernment is the order of the day.
The NDAA Came During the Occupy Wall Street Protests
The National Defense Authorization Act came about during the worldwide Occupy
protests. Therefore, the reasonably minded person can suspect that the NDAA pro-
vision for detaining American citizens without due process of the law was an excuse
to eventually corral OWS & 99% Declaration leaders. Then, the right wing propa-
gandists decided to twist things around, making it look as if the Democrats are now
coming after the Republicans, poised to throw them all in detainment camps. It was
a right wing diversionary tactic.
Be on the lookout. In the red state Southern United States, where this article was
written, certain factions are still fighting the Civil War, maintaining an arrogant sense
of Confederate superiority. All the while, they seek to disunify this nation. The ploy
to disunify is accompanied with the same old diatribes. The irony is that the diatribes
used to belong to the Southern Democrats. They now are professed by Reaganite
Republicans. Zero difference.
