…Random acts of Petty Vandalism brought to you by Michael Cushman and the Southern Nationalist Network.
As you can see from the three tweets above, Southern Nationalists like “Dr.” Michael Hill of the League of the South and Michael Cushman of Southern Nationalist Network are not as concerned about Southern Heritage as they are Southern “White” Supremacy. Southern Heritage is purely a front for their disdain of everything American today and a wish to return to the days of the antebellum south. I personally find their views of history quite disturbing. What do you think?
The above picture of the George Wallace quote from 1963 appeared for a time as the footer image at Southern Nationalist Network run by Michael Cushmen (Palmetto Patriot) down in South Carolina. While it is no longer the footer it is still part of the images that are displayed with pride on Michael’s website. I was curious to the context of the quote so I did a simple google search for the first sentence and here is what I found.
Here is the quote in full context or at least the full paragraph…
“Today I have stood, where once Jefferson Davis stood, and took an oath to my people. It is very appropriate then that from this Cradle of the Confederacy, this very Heart of the Great Anglo-Saxon Southland, that today we sound the drum for freedom as have our generations of forebears before us done, time and time again through history. Let us rise to the call of freedom-loving blood that is in us and send our answer to the tyranny that clanks its chains upon the South. In the name of the greatest people that have ever trod this earth, I draw the line in the dust and toss the gauntlet before the feet of tyranny . . . and I say . . . segregation today . . . segregation tomorrow . . . segregation forever.”
It seems that Palmetto Patriot did a little convenient editing and forgot to put the most important part of that speech in his quote. But then again he does not want anyone to think his southern nationalist website is geared towards a certain color of southerner. It should also be noted that the League of the South and Connie Chastain/Ward endorse the SNN by linking to it on their sites.
Over at the League of the South’s excuse for a blog, Rebellion Blog, they are celebrating Margaret Mitchell winning the Pulitzer Prize in 1937 for Gone With The Wind. It is no wonder why Lost Cause Traditionalist hold the views of the war that they do based on Old Rebel’s comment to Michael Cushman’s comment about GWTW being the best movie ever…
“No doubt about it. Everytime I see the scene where Scarlett’s overwhelmed at the sight of all the wounded and dying soldiers, and then the camera pulls us toward the tattered Battleflag flying over them, I get tears in my eyes.”
Big softy! And they must also be coming around to accepting Public Broadcasting by their endorsement of a Georgia Public Broadcasting documentary on Margaret Mitchell. But just when you think you have LCT figured out an anonymous commenter has this to say…
Could 1861-1865 possibly have been ‘happier’ times for us, even in the throes of war? At least then honourable people were acting on their principles. Then again, ‘happy’ is a very overrated state of mind, as I tell my wife when she asks me if I am ‘happy’. Any Southerner who is ‘happy’ nowadays is either a scalawag or feeble-minded.
HOPEFUL?! – that’s another story altogether!!!!
Oh well…I am not surprised!!
