Via Civil War Memory.
The 54th Regiment fought with Massachusetts for the Yankee flag and for the “Glory” of BRA. This is what we were fighting against.
“A Union officer had asked the Confederates at Battery Wagner for the return of Shaw’s body but was informed by the Confederate commander, Brigadier General Johnson Hagood, “We buried him with his niggers.” Shaw’s father wrote in response that he was proud that Robert, a fierce fighter for equality, had been buried in that manner.”
Note: Having read Buchanan’s latest column on VDARE, I would like to point out that “we as a people” did not agree to end segregation in the 1960s. Instead, the U.S. federal government which was controlled by the Northern states (who voted as a 9 to 1 supermajority in Congress to defeat the Southern filibusters) dismantled Jim Crow and threw open our borders to the Third World.
Dixie was against MLK and the Civil Rights Movement. We voted down the Immigration Act of 1965. We opposed Roe vs. Wade. We blocked the Equal Rights Amendment. We opposed the Reagan amnesty. We opposed the Bush amnesty. The Cultural Revolution of the 1960s was a Jewish and Yankee embrace of the degenerate counterculture that was also opposed here.
Woodstock was in New York. Kent State was in Ohio. The Stonewall Riots were in New York City.
We as a people did not agree to pay this price. Just like we never agreed to make the negro a citizen. We have never agreed with gay marriage or “women’s liberation” or the Barack Hussein Obama presidency or the rest of these deluded utopian schemes that are constantly hatched by other peoples who live within the United States.
These other groups are racially, ethnically, culturally, and religiously distinct from us. They do not share either our blood, our history, or our political principles.
