How Dare They Attack Our Confederate Flag

Commentary by Joan Hough

It kisses my heart
to view this beautiful place
to see a memorial
for such magnificent men.

Magnificent Confederate men!

It warms my heart
To see the flag
with our Savior’s cross
resting over those
who shed their blood
while defending their homes
and their land.

Magnificent Confederate men!

God holds them now
in the palm of his hand,
Many of us hold them too,
deep in our hearts.

But there are those
who attack the flag
hanging over these men’s heads.
Over the heads of men sleeping here.

Magnificent Confederate men!

When enemies attack the flag
they attack you,
they attack me,
they attack all
whose ancestors
fought under it and were

Magnificent Confederate Men!

When they attack this flag,
they attack those
who believe in truth.
When they attack this flag,
they attack truth.

When they attack truth
they attack magnificent men,
no matter where they live
–North or South, East or West,
Men who love truth
are better than the rest, they are

Magnificent American men!

You have no enemies, you say?
Alas, my friend, the boast is poor;
He who has mingled in the fray
Of duty, that the brave endure,
Must have made foes! If you have none,
Small is the work that you have done.
You’ve hit no traitor on the hip,
You’ve dashed no cup from perjured lip,
You’ve never turned the wrong to right,
You’ve been a coward in the fight.

—Charles MacKay (1814-1889)


Don’t they know that each state in the Union HAD THEN AND HAS NOW the right
to secede– because each state was sovereign when it entered the union. Each
state maintained that sovereignty. Even some New England States tottered on
secession—so the folks all over the nation knew about the validity of states’

Don’t they know that MIGHT DOES NOT MAKE RIGHT?

Don’t they know SLAVERY WAS NOT THE CAUSE OF THE WAR–that even Lincoln himself
admitted that repeatedly?

Don’t they know that Lincoln, himself, said the same in his inaugural speech—that
his lies about slavery came when the War was half over and he was losing?

These present day American liars are all traitors to the U.S. CONSTITUTION,
just as Abe Lincoln and his rich, rich industrialists- Republicans were when
they instigated the invasion of an i ndependent nation, which sought only to
be left alone.

The present day liars are all pushing socialism-Communism in America, while
calling it DEMOCRACY–and that makes them traitors to the Constitution!

If those attackers, including History Professors (services paid for by you
and me) and NAACP rabble rousers and brain-washed flunkies, persist in their
efforts to gain apologies from Southerners, attack our Confederate flag, and
thus us, and continue to seek reparations for slaves—then it is high time
for Southerners go on the offense and demand reparations for all Southerners
who suffered irreparable damages to their families and their futures because
of an illegal war and the multitude of out right lies told to blacken the reputations
of all Southerners….(black, white, red & brown) whose ancestors fought
for the Confederacy because they knew the devil resided in the White House.

If the illegal, border crossing criminals can attract so much favorable attention
from Congress, from the President from the Communications media, from Hollywood,
perhaps Southerners need to make themselves more visible–and let the entire
world know that "our colors don’t run." We have been a coward in the
fight. We have let our enemies have their way entirely too long. And believe
me, they who are against our flag are our enemies– YOUR enemies, as well as
mine and what’s more, they are the enemies of truth, and the enemies of true

Here’s hoping that Southerners will learn to differentiate between historical
truths and historical lies and will begin an aggressive defense of truth. Here’s
hoping that we Southerners will develop the wisdom of our forefathers. Our ancestors’
quality of wisdom will not be easy for us to acquire. We won’t obtain it from
national TV or from most newspapers. It won’t fall gently upon us from Heaven.
We’ll have to find a path to it. That path is likely to be a dangerous one,
but only it can lead us to wisdom. If we fail to find it, horrors await us.

Finding the pathway to truth narrow,
lined with the sharpest of knives,
and with plants exuding the most noxious of fumes,
We, sensibly, protect our fragile skins
And spare our olfactory senses
By following the wider path that lies
Just a bit to the left.

Lined with soft maiden hair and heaven scented jasmine,
it surely will take us to the self same destination–
we, with great wisdom, conclude.
Then later, are horrified to discover
Ourselves imprisoned somewhere in Communist China.

Joan Hough, 2004

I don’t know about you, but I’ve had enough of lies and liars. I will no longer
be intimidated by those in organizations dedicated to the destruction of something
I hold dear. I know that the best way for me to fight for the truth, is to arm
myself by studying the truth itself as it relates to that War of Northern Aggression–
that Second War for Southern Independence. For that reason I am now reading
everything I can find that recent "honest" (not financed by government)
historians have released, obtained from documents and diaries saved by and in
the possession of Southern families–materials unburned in Lincoln’s TOTAL WAR
against women, children, old folks and babies– a war in which Lincoln’s troops,systematically
and on orders,burned Southern homes to the ground and caused civilians to either
burn to death or starve.–genocide in truth.

All the lovely History channel documentaries in the world, with all their marvy
Technicolor enactments, and all their repeated, repeated lies—cannot alter
the fact that Sherman WAS A MONSTER AND SO WAS LINCOLN
