They Can’t Help Themselves, Can They?

Posted in African Americans, Memory by Andy Hall on October 16, 2012

Has anyone else noticed that the official blog of the Flagging movement, Southern Flaggers in Action, has at least temporarily abandoned its stated mission of “forwarding the colors” or honoring Confederate veterans or whatever, and is now a platform for straight-up race trolling the presidential election, ominously asking, Are Whites Being Threatened If Obama Loses The Election?“:

There are several others mentioned in the article, most of the same literary caliber, all threatening general mayhem should Romney win the election.  If some of these gentle folk make good their boasts it would give Comrade Obama a wonderful pretext to declare martial law and start the government crackdown on all those terrorist home schoolers, ex-veterans and Christians–you know–all those potential terrorists who cling to their Bibles and guns.  He’d like nothing better and his core support just might be in the process of being programmed to do what he wants. They are what the Communists refer to as “useful idiots.”
Who in his right mind can’t see the threat here? Do what we want and re-elect Obama–or else! These people have been progrrammed [sic.] into thinking that if Obama loses they will have to give up their “free” Obama cell phones, all the other freebies they’ve been promised, their food stamps and all the rest,  all of which they obtain at the expense of us folks who are still willing to work for a living. No wonder the economy is terrible, when those of us who still work are forced to foot the bill for those who won’t. . . .
In the event that such an occurrence does take place and Obama’s supporters decide to take to the streets to vent their racism (because that’s all it really is for most of them) then I think that those among the populace that share a determination to defend themselves and their property by exercising their Second Amendment rights will be pretty much left alone while the rioters go after easier victims.
The only variable in that equation is–should he lose–will Obama then declare martial law and come for everyone’s guns so the rioters won’t have any opposition??

Nat Turner and Denmark Vesey may be dead and buried, but they still ride in the fever dreams of some people.

    It’s like I’ve said time and time again. They don’t care about history or heritage. The flaggers are projecting their modern political sentiment on the past.

    Heritage not Hate!!

      Confederate heritage folks have an easy choice to make in November, unless (like Mark Vogl) they intend to protest with a write-in vote for Jeff Davis. They can either vote for a candidate who has publicly disavowed the Confederate flag, or they can vote for the candidate who gave Ed Sebesta the finger and has an established record of honoring Confederate veterans by sending a memorial wreath to the Confederate monument at Arlington every year. Seems like an easy call to me, from the perspective of preserving Confederate heritage.

        Too true. I wonder if they know which is which. If they truly care about honoring the past and their flag, then they’ll make the right (I mean left) decision.

        Andy my friend,
        We have been down this road before…
        2005, Camp Butler, Obama, VA Administration, “No Battleflag” for 866 CSA POWs monument…
        AND since the topic includes Arlington, Obama is a disgrace to all US Military servicemen, and he dirties the sacred ground when he sets foot in A.N.C.

        Among the people who signed the letter urging Obama to stop laying the wreath on the Confederate monument was Bill Ayers. Obama did it anyway. Funny, because Hannity told me Obama always did things the Bill Ayers way.

        (PS I’m of the opinion that laying a wreath at the Confederate monument AND a wreath for Black Union troops is a good way of diffusing this. Obama made the right call here, I think)

          I agree. I sometimes tease the True Southrons that they have a choice in November between voting for a man who’s said that the Confederate flag “is decisive and shouldn’t be shown,” or a man who has a proven track record of honoring Confederate veterans. Somehow, they don’t find that humorous.

      Down here in Georgia a few months ago an SCV member Albert Jelks was killed by folks playing the “Knockout Game”. It ain’t no great secret that black on white crimes are thru the roof. We can look at how the Obama regime is protecting muslum terrorists and Black Panthers. Yuck it up, y’all, you might be the next 2nd place winner of the Knockout Game 🙂

        I’m passing this comment on against my better judgment. You write:

        Down here in Georgia a few months ago an SCV member Albert Jelks was killed by folks playing the “Knockout Game”.

        I remember reading about that, and I’m sorry for Mr. Jelks’ family and friends. But I also recall that, at the time, the authorities were willing to say virtually nothing about his cause of death, although they eventually called it a homicide. My impression then was that in the absence of actual, verified information, there was a helluva lot of speculation about what happened, including references to the “knockout game,” and assumptions that the perpetrators were black — which is quite a specific scenario given that there are no witnesses and no obvious motive. Yet you state this as though it were established fact. A quick web search doesn’t reveal much new information in the case, and I would appreciate it if we stick to what is actually known, as opposed to what “everybody knows.”

        Follow me?

    I’ve noticed.

    Any threat to cause an effect in the outcome of an election is an act of terrorism and should be delt with accordingly. If this is the way Obama supporters act, I will vote for Romney.

      You have a nice day.

      • Rob Baker said, on October 16, 2012 at 3:12 pm

        Is he (Freeman) saying we’re Obama supporters, or they are?

        • Andy Hall said, on October 16, 2012 at 3:23 pm

          Dunno, not going to worry about it.

          But it’s worth noting that if you click through the link on the Flaggers’ blog, the original “threats” of violence are filtered through the website of Alex Jones, the far-right-wing radio talker, conspiracy theorist and 9/11 Truther.

          He's a funny, funny guy.
