Dead Confederates, A Civil War Era Blog

They Are Who You Thought They Were, No. 644

Posted in Memory by Andy Hall on March 26, 2017

A couple of weeks ago I put up a post noting that two well-known Confederate Heritage™ advocates, Clint Lacy and Valerie Protopapas Hughes, had given long interviews at the white-supremacist, anti-Semitic website AndrewCarringtonHitchcock-dot-com. On Friday, Lacy (right) responded there with a post, “Clint Lacy’s Open Letter In Defense Of Free Speech And Free Association.” It’s long and a bit rambling. You can look it up yourself, if you’re interested; as of Sunday morning, it’s the top story on the site.

Lacy characterizes my post as a “hit piece,” which seems a little disingenuous, given that the most damning passages in it are direct, verbatim quotes from his own interview. No matter. In his response, Lacy doesn’t actually talk a lot about free speech and free association, but he does offer a good bit of additional information about his views and relationship with both that website’s host, Andrew Carrington Hitchcock, and his website’s affiliated publication, The Barnes Review, for which Lacy wrote the article he discussed in the interview.

Lacy explains that he didn’t interrupt Hitchcock’s screeds about Jews and supposed white genocide — the ones he responded to by simply saying, “yeah” — during the interview because it would have rude to do so. He doesn’t explain why he didn’t challenge Hitchcock’s assertions at any point in the hour-long interview, but as we’ll see in a moment, there’s probably a reason for that, too.

Lacy noted that he not only writes for The Barnes Review magazine, but that he’s also a member of its Editorial Review Board. I hadn’t known that. Presumably in his capacity on the board, he has a hand in guiding the content of The Barnes Review, that in recent months has included articles such as these:

SONDERKOMMANDOS REMEMBER. By John Wear. For a while, a “Sonderkommando” had a great life. Improved quarters, better food and  special privileges were what awaited a Jew who helped the Nazis exterminate his brethren. But, at the end of his term, the Sonderkommando willingly marched off to the gas chamber himself. Really? Who says so, and is their testimony believable?

THE JEWISH HERESY IN NOVGOROD. By Dr. Matthew Raphael Johnson. Honest historians now admit the Bolshevik revolution was a singularly Jewish event. But here, Dr. Matthew Johnson tells us how the Medieval Russian Orthodox Church dealt with the “Judaizer Heresy,” an alien revolutionary threat to not only Christianity, but Russian sovereignty itself, all the way back in the Medieval era.

THE GENOCIDE OF THE BOERS AND THE ROLE OF THE ROTHSCHILD DYNASTY. By Stephen Mitford Goodson. The truth is, all races and religions have been “holocausted” or enslaved at one time or another: the Christians by the Romans, Africans by Africans, the Irish by the British, the Slavs by the Moors, the Palestinians by the Jews, the Japanese of Nagasaki etc. Here is a tragic and shameful white-on-white holocaust not to be forgotten.

DISPELLING SOME MAJOR MYTHS ABOUT THOMAS JEFFERSON.By Robert Grooms. Thomas Jefferson was a true genius, possessing an intellect few politicians could match back then, let alone today. In his time, Jefferson twice attempted to emancipate the slaves, and failed. Presciently, though, he predicted blacks would never forgive whites for slavery.

THE TRIAL OF ADOLF EICHMANN WAS THERE EVIDENCE FOR A CONVICTION? By John Wear. Adolf Eichmann was, undoubtedly, heavily involved in the Reich’s “final solution” to relocate as many Jews from Germany as possible. After the war, he escaped to Argentina, where he was eventually found by Zionist agents. Here is the story of his trial in Israel for mass murder.

A HISTORY OF “THE OTHER” MAFIA. By Ronald L. Ray. We’ve all been inundated with Hollywood tales of the criminal exploits of the Italian or Sicilian mafias, reputedly some of the toughest gangsters ever. And historians will even discuss Irish crime bosses, Black and Hispanic criminal gangs, and even the “Russian” mafia. But why are they so reluctant to talk about one of the most violent and long-lived organized crime groups in history—the Jewish mafia? Here is a brief overview.

TRUE LEGACY OF A HOLOCAUST HOAXER. By Peter Winter. On July 2, 2016, “the Holocaust” lost one of its “best witnesses”: Elie Wiesel passed into that great crematorium oven in the sky. Wiesel had dedicated a large portion of his life to recounting the horrors of the “death camps” of Nazi Germany. Problem is, he might never have even set foot in a concentration camp. . .

As for the suggestion that he himself might hold anti-Semitic views, Lacy responds:

I recently read Texe Marrs book, “Holy Serpent of the Jews,” in which he uses prominent rabbis’ own words as his source.

The main focus of the book, according to Marrs is:

“The average Christian Pastor or Minister knows absolutely nothing about the Holy Serpent or the other insane doctrines of the Kabbalah and Talmud. He or she believes only that the Jews worship the God Jehovah, the I AM of the Old Testament.

In fact the Jewish high, “God,” is not Jehovah at all, but is named, “Ein Sof,” and the Jews neither worship nor pray to this mysterious, ineffable, “God.” Instead they pray to one of the many gods and goddesses of the Tree of Life, or directly to Satan and Lucifer.”

So do I hate Jews? No. Do I still believe they are God’s “chosen people?” No. Have I read Andrew Carrington Hitchcock’s, “The Synagogue of Satan?” No, but I plan on reading it.

Do I disavow Texe Marrs or Andrew Carrington Hitchcock? Absolutely not. I believe Mr. Marrs has written a very well documented book which answers a lot of questions for people willing to read it.

All-righty, then. You don’t “hate Jews,” but also recommend “a very well documented book” that “answers a lot of questions” and claims that Jews “pray to one of the many gods and goddesses of the Tree of Life, or directly to Satan and Lucifer.” Got it.

Lacy continues:

I consider Andrew Carrington Hitchcock a very good friend, and will happily appear on his show anytime he is gracious enough to invite me on.

Excellent. Please proceed.

Finally, Lacy concludes:

I do not owe Corey Meyer or Andy Hall an apology, an explanation, or anything else for that matter.

For the record, Clint, I never expected (or asked for) an apology. But I do think you’ve explained yourself very, very well. Better than you know, really. And you can’t begin to guess how much I appreciate it.

    “Partial quotes, contextual deception, & half-truths are like pot-holes on the path of knowledge.”– Civil War Talk user Bee, March 28, 2016

    Perhaps you should read the quote again and use it for future reference.

    • Andy Hall said, on March 26, 2017 at 1:30 pm

      Hey, Clint. If people think I’ve misquoted you, or misrepresented what you said, they’re welcome to check out that website and make their own judgments. One reason I used extensive quotes in this post and previous one is that, frankly, you and Hitchcock make the point much more effectively in your own words than anything I could write.

      • bloodintheozarks said, on March 26, 2017 at 2:40 pm

        Why don’t you just throw the link to the website in the article and make it easier for them?

        • Andy Hall said, on March 26, 2017 at 2:46 pm

          Don’t feel like driving his viewer stats. People who want to view it can, easily enough.

          • Neil Hamilton said, on March 26, 2017 at 4:23 pm

            Indeed, Andy.

            The problem is in WANTING to view such tripe.

            Keep posting, Andy, truly appreciate your efforts to keep us completely and fully informed.

              Back when Harry Truman was campaigning for president in 1948, an election he was widely expected to lose, he was giving a speech at some little whistle-stop town and someone in the audience yelled, “give ’em hell, Harry!” Truman is supposed to have replied, “I don’t give ’em hell, mister, I just tell the truth on ’em and they think they’re in Hell.”

              I like that story.

    • Neil Hamilton said, on March 26, 2017 at 4:24 pm

      Bee already knows that Andy does not do such. How about letting her speak for herself and not hijack her words.

      • Andy Hall said, on March 26, 2017 at 4:55 pm

        Clint Lacy has left the building.

  2. bloodintheozarks said, on March 26, 2017 at 4:27 pm

    Not wanting to drive his viewer stats is probably one reason you won’t. Other (more likely ) reasons include:

    • You don’t want people to read the whole article.
    • You are afraid linking to the article will somehow bring the stigma of being labeled an anti-Semite through “guilt by association ” ( One of your favorite tactics).
    Either way, one thing is clear, you’re scared to do it. You can ( and most likely will) continue to take cheap shots from the sidelines.
    Feel free to label me however you wish.

    • Andy Hall said, on March 26, 2017 at 4:47 pm

      That’s an interesting theory. But I’ll note that, as of this writing, your own blog doesn’t link to them, either. I will refrain from speculating as to why that might be.

      As for “guilt by association,” well, not guilt, but it’s certainly true that I don’t want to be associated with your “very good friend” Andrew Carrington Hitchcock.

      Thanks for stopping by. You’re done here.

    Jimmy, I’m going to edit this comment, given that it’s a bit inflammatory and Lacy’s no longer part of the conversation.

    Suffice to say, his own words reveal who and what he is, and need little additional embellishment.

    • Jimmy Dick said, on March 27, 2017 at 9:04 pm

      His own words reveal him to be what he is. It’s always pathetic to see him and the other neo-confederates object to being called racist when their own words prove that they are racist. It’s just the cognitive dissonance they live with. They’re stuck in their ideology of ignorance.

      You can’t even discuss things rationally with these people. They refuse to accept facts and keep trying to pass off fabrications to support their ideology. It just does not work.

      • Andy Hall said, on March 28, 2017 at 8:38 am

        He seems to be very upset about being publicly associated with the people he publicly associates with.

    Years ago, I naively thought that technology would help tamp down some of the more unsavory aspects of outlandish thought by shining a light on what was being said by whom, allowing readers to identify just who the real outliers, i.e. proponents of anti-Semitism, Holocaust denial and white supremacy.

    Sadly, it seems only to have enabled and even emboldened the crackpots as they have been able to band together more readily through technology. It may be easier to call them out today, but I also believe they take heart in the fact that the Internet has allowed them to find others like themselves.

    Instead of being a single slug under a rock, they learn there several slugs under nearby rocks, and that gives them some measure of ill-conceived strength.
