I recently published a post entitled An Inconvenient Truth the subject of which was the recent controversy involving Southern Rock legends Lynyrd Skynyrd interview with CNN their distancing of themselves from the Confederate Battle Flag, fan outrage, and Gary Rossington’s (last original member of Lynyrd Skynyrd) clarification and pledge to keep flying the flag at their live shows.
Today I want to take the discussion in a new direction, one that will most likely get me as much or more hate mail than it will positive responses. That being said, this is what I feel, and this is what I feel is right to say.
I like most of you was both angered and disappointed when Lynyrd Skynyrd appeared on CNN and declared that they were dissociating themselves from the Confederate Flag, I found their Facebook page and shared my displeasure with them like THOUSANDS of my fellow Southerners and Skynyrd fans did. I was quite please , when Gary Rossington posted his statement clarifying his position on the flag stating that:
“I wanted to clarify the discussion of the Confederate Flag in our recent CNN interview. Myself, the past members and the present members (that are from the South), are all extremely proud of our heritage and being from the South. We know what the Dixie flag represents and its heritage; the Civil War was fought over States rights.
We still utilize the Confederate (Rebel) flag on stage every night in our shows, we are and always will be a Southern American Rock band, first and foremost. We also utilize the state flag of Alabama and the American flag as well, ‘cause at the end of the day, we are all Americans. I only stated my opinion that the confederate flag, at times, was unfairly being used as a symbol by various hate groups, which is something that we don’t support the flag being used for. The Confederate flag means something more to us, Heritage not Hate”
It was good to know that so many of us spoke out and it was even better that somebody listened. Gary Rossington listened and tried to make things right, now where I come from, that’s all a man can do , or be expected to do. So why are so many of my Southern brothers in the ranks of the Sons of Confederate Veterans still raking him over the coals?
Michael Givens, Commander in Chief of the Sons of Confederate Veterans could never be described as a simple administrator, or a bureacrat within the ranks of the 31,000 that make up the Sons. He is an Independent film maker, he is articulate, proactive and thinks outside of the box in his duties. In short his has been an excellent commander but in the case of Lynyrd Skynyrd, specifically Gary Rossington’s statements he is wrong. Responding to Rossington’s statement he left the following comment in the comments section at the band’s website, www.lynyrdskynyrd.com stating:
“Dear Gary, Lynyrd Skynyrd, management, `et alia’,
I am the Commander-in-Chief of the Sons of Confederate Veterans. We are an organization, chartered in 1896 by veterans of the War for Southern Independence for the purpose of promoting the true history and principles of the Confederate soldiers’ cause. On behalf of our 31,000 members I write you today to express our deep sadness and concern over your present stance toward our venerable banner of the South. Your use of the flag in a manner that is up lifting and not aligned with any form of hate has been a stalwart defense of the flag’s true symbolism for many years. We appreciate and applaud your past efforts on behalf of our common ancestors.
Our biggest concern comes from your statement on the 8th of September 2012 to CNN. You disclosed, “But I think through the years, you know, people like the KKK and Skinheads and people have kind of kidnapped the dixie rebel flag from the southern tradition and the heritage of the soldiers.” Sir, our ancestors wrote the definition of that flag with their blood and when they furled the flag at the last battle they tucked their God-given liberty inside. The KKK and the Skinheads do not define our flag any more than the NAACP or any other hate group.
I am sure you do not agree with their hateful views of our flag, therefore I must ask you, who will stand up for the TRUTH, if not you and if not me? The answer is no one and without us the truth will be buried with the American Confederate flag. That is why we must not capitulate to their nancy demands.
Like many men in my organization, your music has been the soundtrack of my life. Your songs have helped define my own identity and Southernness. I have been a fan from the beginning. I was at the second to the last concert of the original band in Johnson City, Tennessee. All my best friends were at the Greenville, South Carolina concert a few days later. Then, our lives were changed forever—some much more than others. We have always been there for you. Your fans have not let you down. Do not let us down.
My fear is that you are living the song, WORKING FOR THE MCA and that Lynyrd Skynyrd has become the subject of a re-branding effort that hopes to make a kinder, gentler Lynyrd Skynyrd. I worked in the ad world for twenty years; re-branding’s not what we need. We need the honest and courageous Lynyrd Skynyrd.
Stay true to your people.
Please fell free to contact me if I may help. I wish you the very best and remain,
Michael Givens Commander-in-Chief Sons of Confederate Veterans scv.org michaelgivens.com”
This was a good statement, a proper statement, and it should have stopped there, however; since making the statement he has also added :
“They still have not put it back in merchandise and the fact that they capitulated in the first place continues the acid rain of angst.”
Commander Givens has also seemingly become obsessed with a few nameless individuals in the comments (all 53 of them) section on the band’s website www.lynyrdskynyrd.com stating: “My letter to Skynyrd has brought out the loons. Y’all might want to chime in”, as well as being obsessed with the the moderators on the site.
Sir, perhaps Gary Rossington did some soul searching after the CNN interview and the backlash from the fans. The end result is that the band will once again fly the flag that has been the symbol of the band for over 40 years, and our heritage for 150 years.
You , me, or anyone else for that matter has no right to demand what kind of merchandise they sell. The free market will determine the demand. Isn’t that what our ancestors fought the war to begin with? Besides, Gary Rossington isn’t telling us what merchandise to sell.
While you have been trying to bring Lynyrd Skynyrd under the heel, a major developement has occurred in Alabama. The Herald Standard is reporting that:
“Council members in an Alabama city voted Tuesday to stop a group’s work on a new monument honoring a Confederate general who was an early leader in the Ku Klux Klan.
The Selma City Council voted 4-0 with two members abstaining to stop all work on the monument to Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest until the courts decide whether the city or a Confederate heritage group owns the cemetery property where the monument would be rebuilt.
Demonstrations by civil rights groups about 10 years ago led to the relocation of a Forrest monument from outside a city building near downtown to a section of a city cemetery honoring Confederate war dead. But Forrest’s bust was removed and apparently stolen from atop a 7-foot granite memorial earlier this year, and efforts to rebuild it have drawn protests and calls by civil rights activists not to replace it.
Detractors say Forrest traded black people like cattle, massacred black Union soldiers and joined the early Ku Klux Klan. His defenders dispute much of that and counter with stories that depict him as a protector of slave families and defender of the weak who resigned from the KKK”
I ask you this; Who is more of a threat to our heritage? A group of friends who admit they were wrong and moves forward, or a group of well organized individuals, who will never admit when they are wrong and will not be happy until they destroy everything we hold dear?
Commander Givens, I respect you, but I would respect you a hell of a lot more if you got off your computer, stop having a teenage-style chatroom smack down with a nameless idiot and get your ass down to Alabama to confront the REAL threats to our heritage. respectfully,Clint E.

“Once again, Congress has ignored the will of the people.
For weeks it has been obvious that millions of Americans are steadfastly opposed to CISPA, the so-called cybersecurity legislation passed by the House last night that will allow the government to surveil Americans and deny them Fourth Amendment protection while on the internet.
Congressional leaders and members have come up with all kinds of lame excuses in order to push the bill through, including the absurd claim made by the House Majority leader that CISPA will create jobs.”

Today is “tax day,” the first of which in American history was the work of — you guessed it — Dishonest Abe in 1862. It was The Great Railroad Lobbyist/Protectionist/Inflationist/Corporate Welfare Statist/Warmonger president who gave us the first “progressive” income tax.
Lincoln’s chief tax collector, David A. Wells (head of the U.S. Revenue Commission) expressed the basic theme of governmental plunder through income taxation (which was not permitted by the Constitution at the time) when he said: “Wherever you find an article, a product, a trade, a profession, or a source of income, tax it!”
Believe me when I tell you that I wish I didn’t have to keep covering this story but it is a story which has unfolded in the South (Sanford , Fla) and could have very big implications in the lives of Southerners.
It could have very big implications because of what Attorney General of the United States Eric Holder addressed the National Action Network yesterday in Washington, D.C. and praised, yes you heard right, praised “Reverend” Al Sharpton stating:
“Thank you very much, Reverend Al. I appreciate your kind words, and I’m especially grateful for your prayers and for your partnership, your friendship, and also for your tireless efforts to speak out for the voiceless, to stand up for the powerless, and to shine a light on the problems we must solve and the promises, the promises that we must fill.”
Wow. So Al Sharpton is a problem solver and a shiner of light now?
Let’s look at Mr. Sharptons past “problem solving” skills. From Wikipedia:
“The Crown Heights riot began on August 19, 1991, after a car driven by a Jewish man, and part of a procession led by an unmarked police car, went through an intersection and was struck by another vehicle causing it to veer onto the sidewalk where it accidentally struck and killed a seven-year-old Guyanese boy named Gavin Cato and severely injured his cousin Angela. Witnesses could not agree upon the speed and could not agree whether the light was yellow or red. One of the factors that sparked the riot was the arrival of a private ambulance which, on the orders of a police officer worried for the Jewish driver’s safety, removed the uninjured driver from the scene while Cato lay pinned under his car. Cato and his cousin were treated soon after by a city ambulance. Caribbean-American and African-American residents of the neighborhood rioted for four consecutive days fueled by rumors that the private ambulance had refused to treat Cato. During the riot blacks looted stores, beat Jews in the street, and clashed with groups of Jews, hurling rocks and bottles at one another after Yankel Rosenbaum, a visiting student from Australia, was stabbed and killed by a member of a mob shouting “Kill the Jew.” Sharpton marched through Crown Heights and in front of “770″, shortly after the riot, with about 400 protesters (who chanted “Whose streets? Our streets!” and “No justice, no peace!”), in spite of Mayor David Dinkins‘s attempts to keep the from happening.
In 1995, a black Pentecostal Church, the United House of Prayer, which owned a retail property on 125th Street, asked Fred Harari, a Jewish tenant who operated Freddie’s Fashion Mart, to evict his longtime subtenant, a black-owned record store called The Record Shack. Sharpton led a protest in Harlem against the planned eviction of The Record Shack. Sharpton told the protesters, “We will not stand by and allow them to move this brother so that some white interloper can expand his business.”
On December 8, 1995, Roland J. Smith Jr., one of the protesters, entered Harari’s store with a gun and flammable liquid, shot several customers and set the store on fire. The gunman fatally shot himself, and seven store employees died of smoke inhalation. Fire Department officials discovered that the store’s sprinkler had been shut down, in violation of the local fire code. Sharpton claimed that the perpetrator was an open critic of himself and his nonviolent tactics. Sharpton later expressed regret for making the racial remark, “white interloper,” and denied responsibility for inflaming or provoking the violence.
On March 11, 2007, Sharpton held a press conference to highlight what he said was unequal treatment of four suspected rapists in a high-profile crime in the Dunbar Village Housing Projects in West Palm Beach, Florida. The suspects, who were young black men, were arrested for allegedly raping and beating a black Haitian woman at gunpoint. The crime also involved forcing the woman to perform oral sex on her 12-year-old son.
At his press conference Sharpton said that any violent act toward a woman is inexcusable but he felt that the accused youths were being treated unfairly because they were black. Sharpton contrasted the treatment of the suspects, who remain in jail, with white suspects involComments on Jews
During the Crown Heights Riot, Sharpton (who arranged a rally in Crown Heights after Cato’s death) has been seen by some commentators as inflaming tensions by making remarks that included “If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house”.
Comments on gays
Sharpton was quoted as saying to an audience at Kean College in 1994 that, “White folks was [sic] in caves while we was building empires…. We taught philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it.” Sharpton defended his comments by noting that the term “homo” was not homophobic but added that he no longer uses the term. Sharpton has since called for an end to homophobia in the African-American community.
Comments on Mormons
- “As for the one Mormon running for office, those who really believe in God will defeat him anyways, so don’t worry about that; that’s a temporary situation.”
In response, a representative for Romney told reporters that “bigotry toward anyone because of their beliefs is unacceptable.” The Catholic League compared Sharpton to Don Imus, and said that his remarks “should finish his career”.
On May 9, during an interview on Paula Zahn NOW, Sharpton said that his views on Mormonism were based on the “Mormon Church’s traditionally racist views regarding blacks” and its interpretation of the so-called “Curse of Ham“. On May 10, Sharpton called two apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and apologized to them for his remarks and asked to meet with them. A spokesman for the Church confirmed that Sharpton had called and said that “we appreciate it very much, Rev. Sharpton’s call, and we consider the matter closed.” He also apologized to “any member of the Mormon church” who was offended by his comments. Later that month, Sharpton went to Salt Lake City, Utah, where he met with Elder M. Russell Ballard, a leader of the Church, and Elder Robert C. Oaks of the Church’s Presidency of the Seventy.
Tawana Brawley controversy
Al Sharpton interviewed in 2007 on whether he is tired of hearing about Tawana Brawley twenty years later.
On November 28, 1987, Tawana Brawley, a 15-year-old African-American girl, was found smeared with feces, lying in a garbage bag, her clothing torn and burned and with various slurs and epithets written on her body in charcoal. Brawley claimed she had been assaulted and raped by six white men, some of them police officers, in the town of Wappinger, New York.
Attorneys Alton H. Maddox and C. Vernon Mason joined Sharpton in support of Brawley. A grand jury was convened; after seven months of examining police and medical records, the jury determined that Brawley had fabricated her story. Sharpton, Maddox, and Mason accused the Dutchess County prosecutor, Steven Pagones, of racism and of being one of the perpetrators of the alleged abduction and rape. The three were successfully sued for slander and ordered to pay $345,000 in damages, the jury finding Sharpton liable for making seven defamatory statements about Pagones, Maddox for two, and Mason for one. Sharpton refused to pay his share of the damages; it was later paid by a number of black business leaders.
In 2007, Sharpton said he would have accepted the case the same as he does today. The only difference would be he would not have made it so personal with Pagones, but he still felt Brawley had a good case to go to trial. “I disagreed with the grand jury on Brawley,” said Sharpton in an interview. “I believed there was enough evidence to go to trial. Grand jury said there wasn’t. Okay, fine. Do I have a right to disagree with the grand jury? Many Americans believe O.J. Simpson was guilty. A jury said he wasn’t. So I have as much right to question a jury as they do. Does it make somebody a racist? No! They just disagreed with the jury. So did I.” 
ved in a gang rape—which he claimed was equivalent to the Dunbar Village attack—who were released after posting bond”
Wow that is quite an impressive list of “problem solving” skills is it not? Eric Holder the U.S. Attorney General, who refused to prosecute members of the New Black Panther Party for voter intimidation in 2008 and who refuses to investigate the New Black Panther Party’s $10,000 bounty for George Zimmerman’s head, is praising Al Sharpton , a reverend in name only, who has a history of inciting violence and racial tensions.
Combine that with the fact that the Southern Poverty Law Center , a “poverty pimp” organization has stated that there is no such thing as hate speech in regard to threats being made by the New Black Panther Party in Florida. From Infowars.com:
“In the wake of the Trayvon Martin tragedy, the media and left-leaning politcians, along with extremist groups like the Neo-Nazi National Socialist Movement (NSM) and the New Black Panther Party (NBP) have all combined to create a perfect storm which appears to be nudging America in the direction of an all-out race war.
In addition, fake news reports of NSM’s armed Neo-Nazis patrolling the streets of Sanford, Florida were spreading through the media over this past weekend. Infowars went on to expose these as false claims on Tuesday.
When we spoke to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and its Director Mark Potok on Monday, the SPLC rightly confirmed that they had no knowledge of armed Neo-Nazi patrols in Sanford.
But when asked about the seriousness of the New Black Panther Party’s very public, on-radio demand for a ‘blood on the streets’ race war and their ‘Dead or Alive’ $10,000 bounty on the head of Trayvon Martin’s shooter George Zimmerman, and whether authorities should arrest their leader Malik Zulu Shabazz, as well as Michelle Williams and Chawn Kweli, the New Black Panther’s chief of staff in Tampa and a national spokesman, respectively – because their public declarations constituted hate speech… Potok told this writer:
“There’s no such thing as hate speech…”
“… there must be incitement, or an element of immediacy for authorities to intervene.”
Potok went on to add that for hate speech to be actionable, there must be what is termed as a “true threat” in legal language.
Certainly the New Black Panther Party should be categorized as a “hate group”, according to the SPLC’s previous categorization used to demonize numerous domestic patriot and sovereign citizen groups. In fact the SPLC has compiled a list of hundreds of “Natiivist” US hate groups . Surprisingly, the New Black Panther Party does not exist on their extensive list which comprises mostly of “Minutemen” citizen militia organizations situated along America’s borders”
It would certainly seem that left – wing organizations, liberal media and the Department of Justice are working together to create the perfect storm and it is my opinion that they want riots, they want civil unrest , they want anarchy because it would benefit THEM.
At a time when Southern culture, heritage and history are being sytematically erased it goes without saying that ONE of the benefits for the “White House Alliance’s” plan for civil unrest would be to wipe this culture out permenantly. President Obama wants to be a dictator, he has even publically said so on July 25, 2011 stating that: “The idea of doing things on my own is very tempting”
Look for my racial “crises” coming out of the South as election time nears. Lincoln needed a bad guy in 1861, there is no reason to doubt that Obama is blowing the dust off his plan for his own benefit.- webmaster
Well the accusations abound that Across our Confederation is guilty of “Race-Baiting”. It reminds me of an article I read about liberals once upon a time. The just of it was that one can not win an argument against liberals because facts mean nothing. Facts mean nothing because liberalism is more than a political viewpoint, it is a religion to those who believe in it and the followers have enough faith in their “religion” to believe that if they keep repeating the lies, distorting the truth and manipulating the media enough, the world will see things how they want the world to see them.
That might work for THEM but that is not how I see the world. I see the world for how it REALLY is.
Excuse me, I am not the “race-baiter” I expose the race-baiters.
Maybe Al-Sharpton didn’t call for an expanding of civil unrest.
Maybe a rap group didn’t put out a video calling for riots and hurting white children.
Maybe militant black thugs didn’t go on a spray painting spree of Confederate monuments in New Orleans in the name of “Justice” for Trayvon. Maybe the aforementioned same black thugs didn’t spray paint “blacks kill white people too” on a bridge in the same city during their vandalism spree and maybe, just maybe Tulane professor Charles Figley didn’t say that “their intent was to practice terrorism”
Monuments were being defaced prior to Trayvon’s death. That being said, the militants who dawn their hoodies on their head, (a spray can in one hand and a pack of “Skittles” in the other) as a sign of solidarity for their fallen martre, feel even more embolden and justified in doing so.
No thanks to anti-Southern bloggers such as Kevin Levin over at Civil War Memory who suggests that the monuments are a result of a “history of racial tension” .
Can I label men like Levin “Yankee -Baiters”?
This isn’t going away and there is no reason to hide your head in the sand and pretend it is. Call me what you want, the fact is, I really don’t care what you call me but one thing is for sure, you won’t find me wringing my hands at the matter, questioning the “history of racial injustice” as thugs continue to vandalise monuments to the Confederate veterans, distribute rap songs that call for physical harm of white children, or insinuate that if we all don’t beg for forgiveness from Trayvon that white people are going to die.-webmaster.
Continuing with my exploration of “Reverend” Jesse Jackson’s accusation that “blacks are under attack” I thought it would be interesting to explore the statistics regarding “Black History” vs “Southern” or “Confederate” history. An article posted on NJ.Com’s website , published Feb 26, 2010 ( “Renaming a street is a common – and sometimes controversial – way to honor Martin Luther King Jr” ) states: ”When it comes to renaming public spaces in honor of African-Americans, no modern tradition has been more successful — and often more contentious — than renaming a street after Martin Luther King Jr.
What began in Chicago a few months after the civil rights leader was assassinated in 1968 picked up steam once his birthday was named a federal holiday in 1983. Whether dubbed a street, highway, drive, boulevard, lane or circle, renaming continue to this day, said Derek Alderman, an East Carolina University geographer who has studied the trend.
There are now at least 893 Martin Luther King Jr. streets in the United States, according to his latest compilation. The majority of those are in the South, particularly in King’s home state of Georgia, which has 128.”
You know those are interesting statistics. Over 893 MLK streets across the U.S. , amazingly most of them are located in South , where an epidemic of anti-Confederate vandalism cases has erupted. One needs only to do a quick Google or Yahoo search to see just how bad this epidemic has become….

March 8, 2012 Examiner.Com
These are incidents that have happened over the last month alone! The latter, being directly linked to the NAACP. I ask you; Who is under attack here? Certainly not Jesse and Al.
And what happens when Southerners try to honor Black Confederates who served their country? They are ridiculed by the likes of not only radicals from the racial left, but white guilt , neo-yankee propagandist such as Kevin Levin and Brookes Simpson.
On the other hand the Trayvon Martin incident has spawned an entirely new type of “civil rights” symbol…the hoodie. It has been seen everywhere from the U.S. House of Representatives , to Black churches and by liberal television hosts.
Yes little Trayvon is now a martre and his death will be put to good use by liberal media and the rabid black racialists to further their main cause… the almighty greenback dollar. Men like Sharpton and Jackson need a good tragedy to get the money flowin’ in again so that they can again pick up the banner of battling those slave, lovin’ Confederates.
South-haters love to espouse the claim that the Confederate flag is a symbol of oppression against blacks and minorities but over 893 MLK streets in the American South and the seemingly monthly vandalism incidents involving Confederate monuments tell a different story. Black Americans are not under attack, white Americans, specifically of Southern ancestry are the new minority. The hoodie will be the banner that those who wish to eradicate the Southerner will rally around.-webmaster
In my previous post I addressed the issue of the media deliberately distorting the facts about the Trayvon Martin case, as well as politicians and
“community leaders“ left-wing revolutionaries using this incident to generate publicity for their organizations. One such man the “Reverend” Jesse Jackson ( who I specifically mentioned in my previous post) stated that blacks were under attack. This is simply not true. Were blacks under attack in 2008 ? Hardly the United States elected a black president of questionable eligibility. Not only did the country elect a black president of questionable eligibility, the Black Panther Party was given a green light to intimidate white voters during the process! After the incidents in 2008, the DOJ launched an investigation which , after the election of Barack Obama, quickly went away under the leadership of Attorney General Eric Holder as evidenced in this video, which highlights one Black Panther calling for the murder of white babies! The Black Panther Party was at it again in the same polling station in 2010, only this time the member said he was there to “greet” voters, click on this video to watch.
Ken LaRive reporting for Examiner.com (2009) states that: ”The “New Century Foundation” studies Federal crime reports, and found significant differences in crime ratio between races, verified by the FBI’s NCVS, National Crime Victimization Survey, and The Department of Justice’s UCR, Uniform Crime Reports, FBI Communication’s Division, 304-625-4995.They state emphatically that the Judicial System is not biased against minorities.
Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery.
Blacks are three times more likely to use a hand gun, and twice more likely to use a knife.
Hispanics commit three times more violent crimes than whites, but the statistics are nebulous because sometimes they are classified as white, so it could be far higher.
The best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percent of the population that is black and Hispanic.
Blacks are 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against whites then vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit a robbery.
Forty-five percent of black crime is against whites, 43 against other blacks, and 10 percent against Hispanic.
Blacks are seven times more likely to go to prison, Hispanics three times, and the reason is clear, because from 1980 to 2003 the US incarceration rate has tripled, and so proves that Justice is not only hard-won, but well served.

Then there was the 2007 attack against Channon Christian and Christopher Newsome, as reported by The Worth Reading blog: ”The kidnappers blindfolded their victims and took them to the house at 2316 Chipman Street that Davidson was renting, and where Coleman was waiting. There, Davidson and Cobbins and two other, still unidentified men raped Christian repeatedly in her mouth, vagina, and anus, until her lower lip was ripped from her gums. The men and/or Coleman savaged her private parts, repeatedly shoving a jagged object into, and/or kicking her vagina, hour after hour after hour. Some observers believe that Coleman engaged in the sexual torture out of sexual jealousy, because her boyfriend, Cobbins, found “the white girl” more attractive than her (which was undoubtedly and understandably the case). The medical examiner found semen from Davidson, Cobbins, and two unidentified men on Channon Christian’s panties, in her vagina, and in her anus, but none from her boyfriend. That means that two rapist-murderers are still at large, and that Channon and Christopher had not yet made love.
(An unidentified member or members of the gang also raped the bound Christopher Newsom with a blunt instrument, savaging Newsom’s anus.)”
Then there is the story of a 13-year-old white boy who was attacked and set on fire by his black attackers in Kansas City , Missouri. I don’t know what is more ironic, the fact that this was virtually ignored in the mainstream media or the fact that when it was finally picked up it was from the UK’s Daily Mail newspaper, who will not even admit that this was a hate crime. From The Daily Mail:
“Police are investigating a possible race hate attack after a 13-year-old boy was doused in gasoline and set on fire.
The teenager, who suffered first degree burns to his face and hands, is white and his two attackers black.
His mother Melissa Coon said the attackers told her son ‘This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve, white boy’.”
Still no word from Jesse, Al, Chris Mathews, The Huffington Post or any of the other repeat media offenders.
Coming soon: The Trayvon Martin Case: Part III
Alex Jones: “This represents absolute 100 per cent proof that the military industrial complex which runs the United States is under the control of foreign central banks who are imposing a military dictatorship.”
Infowars.com is reporting today that:
“The Pentagon is engaging in damage control after shocking testimony yesterday by Defense Secretary Leon Panetta at a Senate Armed Services Committee congressional hearing during which it was confirmed that the U.S. government is now completely beholden to international power structures and that the legislative branch is a worthless relic.
During the hearing yesterday Panetta and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey brazenly admitted that their authority comes not from the U.S. Constitution, but that the United States is subservient to and takes its marching orders from the United Nations and NATO, international bodies over which the American people have no democratic influence.
Panetta was asked by Senator Jeff Sessions, “We spend our time worrying about the U.N., the Arab League, NATO and too little time, in my opinion, worrying about the elected representatives of the United States. As you go forward, will you consult with the United States Congress?”
The Defense Secretary responded “You know, our goal would be to seek international permission. And we would come to the Congress and inform you and determine how best to approach this, whether or not we would want to get permission from the Congress.”
Despite Sessions’ repeated efforts to get Panetta to acknowledge that the United States Congress is supreme to the likes of NATO and the UN, Panetta exalted the power of international bodies over the US legislative branch.
“I’m really baffled by the idea that somehow an international assembly provides a legal basis for the United States military to be deployed in combat,” Sessions said. “I don’t believe it’s close to being correct. They provide no legal authority. The only legal authority that’s required to deploy the United States military is of the Congress and the president and the law and the Constitution.”
Infowars continued stating:
“In June last year, President Obama arrogantly expressed his hostility to the rule of law when he dismissed the need to get congressional authorization to commit the United States to a military intervention in Libya, churlishly dismissing criticism and remarking, “I don’t even have to get to the Constitutional question.”
Obama tried to legitimize his failure to obtain Congressional approval for military involvement by sending a letter to Speaker of the House John Boehner in which he said the military assault was “authorized by the United Nations (U.N.) Security Council.”
Panetta’s testimony that the US looks to obtain “international permission” before it acts, allied with Obama citing the UN as the supreme authority while trashing the power of Congress, prove that the United States has ceded control over its own affairs to unelected international bureaucrats, just as the countries of the European Union have done likewise.”
Wikipedia describes a Coup d’ e’tat as:
“A coup d’état (English: /ˌkuːdeɪˈtɑː/, French: [ku deta]; plural: coups d’état; translation: strike (against the) state, literally: strike/blow of state)—also known as a coup, putsch,and overthrow—is the sudden, illegal deposition of a government, usually by a small group of the existing state establishment—typically the military—to replace the deposed government with another body; either civil or military. A coup d’état succeeds if the usurpers establish their dominance when the incumbent government fails to prevent or successfully resist their consolidation of power. If the coup neither fully fails nor achieves overall success, the attempted coup d’état is likely to lead to a civil war.
Typically, a coup d’état uses the extant government’s power to assume political control of the country. In Coup d’État: A Practical Handbook, military historian Edward Luttwak says, “A coup consists of the infiltration of a small, but critical, segment of the state apparatus, which is then used to displace the government from its control of the remainder”, thus, armed force (either military or paramilitary) is not a defining feature of a coup d’état.”

The Tuesday, October 11, 2011 Southeast Missourian newspaper found at the following URL,
http://www.semissourian.com/story/177254 carried a story about a Cape Girardeau, Mo. Confederate monument being vandalized.
This seemingly isolated incident is one of many that are occurring throughout the South. Monuments honoring veterans who fought for the Confederate States of America have been maligned by politicians on both sides of the aisle as well as media outlets.
Political Correctness has run amok. It has infiltrated our schools and our communities, resulting in the “dumbing down” of our students, our citizens, our family, friends and neighbors and the end result is ignorance, the latest display of which happens to be the vandalizing of a monument to soldiers from Cape Girardeau County and Southeast Missouri who gave their lives for their homes, their families, their ideals and their country.
The 1964 Federal Civil Rights Law, 18 U.S.C.§ 245(b)(2), permits federal prosecution of anyone who “willingly injures, intimidates or interferes with another person, or attempts to do so, by force because of the other person’s race, color, religion or national origin”
The Missouri Sons of Confederate Veterans strongly condemns the vandalizing of veterans monuments and calls for the swift prosecution of those who perpetrate these types of acts as hate crimes.
