Michelle Malkin wades into the panic peddlers:
On Monday, a Baltimore Sun lead editorial decried “a series of mysterious fires at African-American churches across the South” in the wake of the Charleston murders. The newspaper cited a “pattern” of attacks, including what it claimed was an “uptick in attacks on 37 black churches in the South” in the 1990s that “prompted President Bill Clinton to set up a church-arson investigative task force.” ... Reminder: Several of the hyped hate crimes against black churches had been committed by black suspects; a significant number of the black churches were, in fact, white churches; and the complex motives behind the crimes included mental illness, vandalism and concealment of theft. Once again, falsified history is repeating itself.UPDATE: Source: Fire at South Carolina black church wasn't arson
What a bunch of sanctimonious vandals:
On Tuesday, the radical group of the Islamic State (IS/ISIS) blew up two monuments in the ancient city of Palmyra in central Syria, IS-linked media sources reported. Pictures uploaded to a text and image sharing website showed one of the monuments, believed to be the tomb of Sheikh Mohammed Ali, being blown up. Militants from the extreme group destroyed the shrines because they consider them to be sacrilegious.And speaking of sanctimonious vandals, check out these headlines: Shreveport NAACP demands removal of Confederate monument Pasquotank NAACP calls for removal of Confederate monument Forest Park Confederate Monument Under Scrutiny Former Macon mayor calls for the removal of confederate monument Group calls for removal of Norfolk Confederate Monument Yes, aren't you glad ISIS doesn't control us?

Check out the latest posts by the South's favorite internet stalker, Ed Sebesta. Here, he throws a tantrum at the Museum of the Confederacy for that institution's "pandering" to the Sons of Confederate Veterans, which Sebesta seems to imagine is a maniacal band of desperados. How is the MOTC "pandering" to the SCV? By renting out public space to them. Yes, really. In his tortured and pompous prose, Sebesta says in a letter to the MOTC: "This isn’t just any group, it is the Sons of Confederate Veterans and it isn’t just some convention center, the location is the Museum of the Confederacy and their use of this specific location is an act of the American Civil War Museum enabling a pernicious movement." "A pernicious movement!" Egads! By Jove, we cannot have this! And just to remind the world how creepy and obsessed he is, Sebesta ends his letter with this dark warning: "When the next shooting occurs some of the blood will be on your hands and the hands of the American Civil War Museum trustees." And then there's a post entitled "Laughing Your Posteriors Off," in which he links to a profanity-laced video mocking a Confederate parade where two vehicles lock bumpers. Yeah, hilarious. But humour has never been Sebesta's strong suit. If you want a video showing a public demonstration gone wrong, check this one out. It sounds like a WWF Cage Match: Gay Pride vs. Black Lives Matter. These two groups clash when the BLM folks elbow their way into the middle of a Gay Pride parade. Two people get shot, the crowd stampedes, and someone drives a car through the crowd. Now THAT'S entertainment: What a vivid foretaste of our multicultural future.
Here's a nice segue from my previous post. Brent Bozell looks behind the highfalutin rhetoric of the Social Justice Warriors and their boosters in the corporate media and exposes the totalitarian impulses that actually motivate these people:
You cultural fascists have struck again. You have shown you will say most anything, and do most anything to advance your radical agenda. But that’s not enough, is it? Your intent is to ban any opposition. Your goal is to ban even the expression of dissension. ... Now it’s the Confederate flag. I don’t know what’s more offensive, your disgusting character assassination or the outright embarrassment of politicians and businesses quaking in their shoes at the thought they might be next on your hit list.He's right. As demonstrated countless times, the SJWs want any who disagree to lose jobs, to be silenced, and to be permanently banished from the marketplace of ideas. Their totalitarian thugs, period.
This story should clarify things for the near-sighted. If you think the escalating jihad against the Confederate Battleflag is based only on the desire not to offend those delicate souls who cower and whimper when they see one, guess again. It's not an attack on a piece of cloth, it's an attack on us, against Western Civilization. These Social Justice Warriors spell it out for the learning impaired:
“Disarm NYPD” announced the “Burn the American Flags” event on Facebook, inviting individuals to join the organization at Fort Greene Park to “set fire to this symbol of oppression.” Organizers said accused Charleston shooter Dylann Roof wasn’t an “isolated actor,” but a “product of a consistent pattern of state-sponsored terrorism and radicalized dehumanization in America.” The event originally was aimed at burning the Confederate flag, but later changed to focus on the stars and stripes. “There will be no peace until we tear down this system of oppression,” the group wrote on Facebook. “It isn’t enough to take the flag down; we must put an end to white supremacy once and for all.”"White Supremacy" is the modern-day equivalent of "Capitalism" as shorthand for what today's radicals hate and are hell-bound to destroy. While old-time communists portrayed their agenda in terms of economic conflict, with the "dictatorship of the proletariat" over the bourgeoisie as their ultimate goal, our much scruffier SJWs seek racial conflict aimed at a dictatorship of peoples of color over eeeevil Whites. It's time to start paying attention to the true motivations behind all the shouting and cursing. And to pick a side.

"Right now, this past week with everything that is going on, I feel very much like the Jews must have felt in the very beginning of the Nazi Germany takeover. I mean I do feel that way, like there is a concerted effort to wipe people like me out, to wipe out my heritage and to erase the truths of history." Tim Steadman
A must-read from the inimitable Jim Goad:
When crazed psychiatrist Nidal Hasan went bonkers with a gun at an Army base in Fort Hood, TX in 2009 while shouting “Allahu akbar!” and picking off 13 victims, the feds refused to prosecute him as a terrorist. But the US Justice Department announced this past Friday that it’s investigating the Charleston shooting as a possible terrorist incident. So enough with your baseless whimpering about how white privilege will protect Dylann Roof from being charged as a terrorist. I’ve just demonstrated that reality is the complete opposite of what you’re claiming it is, and maybe one day you’ll have enough decency and honor to not only admit your errors, but to thank me for correcting you.As Goad points out, every act the Feds have taken in the name of freeing the oppressed has expanded DC's control over our lives. Now the government routinely spies on its own citizens, humiliates us at airports, and claims the power to indefinitely detain citizens without a warrant. If that makes you feel safer, you're nuts.
The Red Guard raises its ugly head in Memphis:
“Memphis Mayor A. C. Wharton wants to dig up the bodies of Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest and his wife and remove them from a city park in the latest and most despicable example of the anti-Southern cleansing spreading across the nation…In addition to desecrating the graves, Wharton wants to tear down a massive statue honoring the Confederate general."I wonder if the Hon. A. C. Wharton plans to hang Forrest before reinterring the body?
The left is riding high these days. Little wonder they're picking more fights. After all, any opposition to the leftist agenda brands a person or group as standing for "hate." So now they're going after churches.
I've been trying (mostly unsuccessfully) to warn conservative Southerners that the self-named "Neocons" are nothing more than leftists who've appropriated the vocabulary of conservatism. So this fact-filled piece from Paul Gottfried shouldn't surprise anyone. And even those who know the truth about Neocons will find Gottfried's expose informative and useful:
The neoconservatives were still in the forefront of South-bashing for decades, from their organized defamation of Mel Bradford, the conservative Southern candidate for the directorship of the National Endowment for the Humanities in 1981, through the crusade to remove the Mississippi senate majority leader Trent Lott in 2002 after he had too fulsomely praised (former segregationist, former Democrat) South Carolina senator Strom Thurmond on his hundredth birthday, to the bile they are now pouring on the already-isolated defenders of the Southern cause.It's time to make a choice, Southerners. Are your loyalties with Likud or with the South? Chose wisely -- you might not get another chance.

No, this isn't an Onion satire. It's the logical next step in the Cultural Marxist agenda. After all, now that the full force of the federal government is behind the re-definition of marriage, there's no limit to interesting new interpretations. From Politico

We are not to draw any conclusions from murderous acts in the news today: ISIS Kills at Least 146 Civilians 37 European Tourists Killed in Attack on Tunisian Beach Resort French Salafist Attacks US Plant in Lyon: One Beheaded Remember, we live in a tolerant country that respects all peoples, so we know the actions of thousands do not define the culture of millions. However, the actions of one do.
Same-sex "marriage" is now the law of the land. Because in America, we have democracy, and that means the people are sovereign. All nine of them.

Cultural Revolution? Who said anything about a Cultural Revolution? Oh, you mean this kind of thing from Apple:
Many large US companies, like Walmart and Amazon, have already banned the sale of any Confederate flag merchandise as a reaction to the recent events. Now, it appears that Apple has decided to join them by pulling many Civil War wargames from the App Store. As of the writing of this story, games like Ultimate General: Gettysburg and all the Hunted Cow Civil War games are nowhere to be found.Things are getting REAL weird out there.
Yesterday I published a post entitled Taking Down That Flag Is Just A Start, which discussed the glorious path leftists think will take us all to Utopia. I agree with the title of that piece -- taking down the flaw WILL be the start of something, though probably NOT what the leftists and statists envision. It's shaping up to be the start of an energized backlash, as indicated in this story from Business Insider:
Amazon's sales of Confederate flags have skyrocketed by more than 3,000% in the past 24 hours. People are snatching up the flags online after several major retailers — including eBay, Wal-Mart, and Sears — pulled them from shelves.3,000%? Wow. Let a thousand flowers bloom by flying the Southern Cross all over the South.
The DC Empire doesn't mind murder when it's done by the right people. From Tim Holcombe:
Last week, yet another doped-up, psychotic killer took the lives of nine people in Charleston, South Carolina. It is a terribly sad and tragic story, yet amidst the tears and grief of friends and loved ones, the oligarchs who presume to lord over Americans at national and state levels pounced within hours, agendas intact, ever the opportunists. Barack Obama launched into his tired, mindless, pathetic, predictable tirade against guns. South Carolina governor Nikki Haley shed a few dutiful tears, and then declared war on fabric. Because, you know, had it not been for a flag, this would never have happened.You'll definitely want to read the whole thing. Funny and incisive. Thanks to Christopher for the link!
This is interesting. From Allen West:
While the mainstream media is decrying the fact that the Charleston shooting victim’s body was carried past a Confederate flag today, the good pastor may not have found it all that offensive. In 2000, during his first term in the South Carolina State Senate, Pinckney actually voted in favor of H5028, the May 2000 compromise which placed the flag at its current location. H5028 related to THE PERMANENT PLACEMENT OF THE UNITED STATES FLAG, THE SOUTH CAROLINA STATE FLAG, AND THE SOUTH CAROLINA INFANTRY BATTLE FLAG OF THE CONFEDERATE STATES OF AMERICA

The headline, by the way, isn't mine -- it's the original in a US News & World Report op-ed. After the Social Justice Warriors perform their exorcism of all Southern symbols, they plan to get REALLY serious about their ongoing revolution. And they're being pretty brazen about it:
Exiling that flag is, in the end, symbolic. There are at least four more steps we need that go well beyond that. I've arranged them in the order that I consider least to most controversial. ... We also need to track domestic terrorism, including groups based on hatred of blacks and other minorities. Former Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano caught huge flak when her department reported in 2009 that right-wing extremism was on the rise, fueled largely by the recession and the nation's first black president. Conservatives attacked the report and its conclusion that white supremacists and a few angry military veterans were ripe for recruitment, and DHS backed off. ... Broadly popular gun safety measures such as comprehensive background checks present the next level of challenge. While Congress bewilderingly failed to act after 20 children were gunned down in their elementary school classroom in Newtown, Connecticut, the landscape is not entirely bleak. State action may be more practical at this point – indeed, Everytown for Gun Safety is claiming victory over the gun lobby in 2015 legislative sessions across the country. Even the U.S. Senate might be more receptive now. Republicans will be fighting to hold seven seats in blue or purple states next year, when the presidency is on the ballot and the electorate will be more liberal than it was in 2014. Finally, and most controversially, we should consider reparations.Now we know that "racial healing" requires even more government surveillance, gun control, and race-based reparations. That would be a huge boost for Big Government and the Race Hustlers. Win-win!
The DC Empire's very own Cultural Revolution is glowing red-hot, and shows no signs of abating. Like the Red Guards of Communist China who screamed insults at anyone or anything they imagined represented traditional culture, DC's Red Guards are trying to out-do each other in discovering and uprooting symbols of the South. The DC Red Guards blubber that the Confederate Battle Flag has to be hidden from view because it was in a picture with a homicidal maniac. But since this is mass hysteria, now they demand EVERYTHING Southern has to go, including the First National Flag. Yes, the First National. Joel Ford raving about the Confederate Stars and Bars, which flies over the capitol in Raleigh on Robert E. Lee's birthday:
“Would we fly the swastika above the state Capitol?” Sen. Joel Ford, a Charlotte Democrat, said Tuesday. “And if the answer is no, we should not fly the Confederate national flag. Both represent some of the darkest periods in the world’s history.”And now that Governor Haley of South Carolina has joined with the Red Guards to take down the Confederate memorial in Columbia, North Carolina's Frat-Boy Governor wants to prove that he, too, is a back-stabing Republican. McCrory wants to stop issuing Sons of Confederate Veterans license plates with the SCV logo. Can this hysteria get any loonier? Oh, yes. Ever-alert Red Guards in Minnesota, of all places, are shrieking that a lake named for John C. Calhoun must be re-named:
The Charleston, S.C., massacre and battle over the Confederate flag has stirred up a major conversation in Minneapolis. A new petition is asking that the name of Lake Calhoun be changed. The lake is named after John C. Calhoun, a former war department secretary who helped bring Fort Snelling to Minnesota. He is also known for supporting slavery. The monument with his name was recently desecrated in Charleston. And here, there is also dissension about his namesake lake.My imagination isn't wild enough to guess what's next.

A solution just occurred to me for the problem of picking a sufficiently distinguished dead woman to grace the $10 bill: Issue an Executive Order declaring that Alexander Hamilton now self-identifies as a woman and leave the bill alone. From Billll's Idle Mind
The Abbeville Review.
Here are three news stories that came out this weekend. Guess which one represents a critical problem for African Americans: Philadelphia
Ten people, including three children, were shot at a Philadelphia cookout and block party Saturday night. According to Philadelphia police incident report, witnesses said "that two unknown black males had fired (at the crowd) with a shotgun at least once and then (drove) down the street in a gold or silver four door sedan and fired several more shots, possibly with a handgun."Chicago
Two men were killed and at least 16 other people have been wounded during separate shootings across the city since Saturday afternoon, police said. Around 11:20 p.m. Saturday, an 18-year-old man was shot to death in the West Humboldt Park neighborhood on the West Side, police said. The man was walking with another man in the 4200 block of West Division Street when an attacker approached him and fired shots, police said.Charleston
Mike Cosper, a pastor at Sojourn Community Church, a Southern Baptist church in Louisville, Kentucky, told CNN that wrestling with the [Confederate] flag's racial history is necessary to improving race relations in the United States. "It's a symbol that is just so powerful, so visceral because of where it comes from and what it means," said Cosper, who is white. "I feel compelled to love my brothers and sister and to empathize with them when they say 'This is what this means. This is what it communicates.' The thing that needs to come down."If you guessed the first two stories represented problems, then you simply weren't paying attention. Those two events took place in northern cities, which are free of eeeevil Confederate flags. And, as EVERYONE KNOWS, the Confederate flag is the root cause of all the real problems confronting African Americans. Now you know.

"The murderer who perpetrated this Charleston black church massacre appears to have intended to maximize publicity for himself by pushing every conceivable hot button of the mainstream media in the fashion that would generate the most unending coverage of this Teachable Moment." - Steve Sailer
