Kevin Levin at Civil War Memory is miffed by the latest example of the wrong sort of people identifying with the Confederate flag.
In October, nine students in Michigan were suspended for wearing the Confederate flag. In November, a White girl in New Jersey was suspended for wearing a Confederate flag sweatshirt. Now even an African-American student in South Carolina has gotten in trouble for displaying the Confederate flag in his dorm room.
Who can blame them? Who would want to identify with BRA’s flag? Who would want to identify with BRA’s national anthem after hearing it performed by Beyonce and Christina Aguilera at the Superbowl?
Should Northerners identify with the Confederate flag? Why not? As Kevin Levin explains, the Confederate flag was “carried by the military arm of a government pledged to defend slavery and white supremacy.”
In the 1950s, the Confederate flag was used as “a symbol of Massive Resistance” to the Civil Rights Movement. Daryl Lamont Jenkins of One People’s Project felt compelled to rip apart a Confederate flag at Gettysburg. That makes it even more attractive as the ideal symbol of White Identity and opposition to Black Run Amerika.
Jewish liberal historians hate the Confederate flag because it is “divisive.” The NAACP is offended by the sight of the Confederate flag. Feminists hate the Confederate flag because it is a symbol of the patriarchy. That is why the Confederate flag should be displayed on every possible occasion.
Note: When Barack Hussein Obama was traveling through Virginia in BRA’s Freedom Ride, he was given a nice Southern welcome. This is an excellent demonstration of how to properly display the Confederate flag as a symbol of “Massive Resistance” to BRA.
It’s interesting that when the first video of the fella standing in his yard, is over, one of the video links shown is of a black fella named H.K. Edgerton, someone I’d not heard of before. He seems to like the Confederate flag. It was a much better video than those two idiots butchering the National Anthem.
I’ve met him before. It is my understanding that he used to be an NAACP chapter leader. He has some kind of personal grievance against the organization.
He’s still one of the reasons the leadership of the LS are a joke. If a black man as a representative of “the League of the South” isn’t bad enough, he has to be a member of the NAACP – formerly, he claims. Dees probably came up with the idea since the negroes don’t have any more brains than do rank and file LOSers.
Hill & Co. should have to wear dresses. They probably do.
There are eccentrics in every community. It doesn’t prove anything. I’m sure there are Jewish Nazis out there somewhere. Here in Alabama, we have Morris Dees and Howell Raines.
I have always hated the Star Spangled Banner. It sucks. The Hartford Convention was a missed opportunity.
“I’m sure there are Jewish Nazis out there somewhere”
This is more common than people know. Many young Jewish males go through a “Nazi phase” as an act of rebellion or a mechanism to cope with self-loathing. There was a movie called “The Believer” which (fictionally) explored that odd phenomenon.
Wasn’t one of George Lincoln Rockwell’s followers a Jew?
HW: “Wasn’t one of George Lincoln Rockwell’s followers a Jew?”
Maybe you are thinking of this guy.
Francis Joseph “Frank” Collin (born November 3, 1944) formerly served as the leader of the National Socialist Party of America, whose plan to march in the predominantly Jewish suburb of Skokie, Illinois was the centerpiece of a major First Amendment decision by the U.S. Supreme Court, National Socialist Party of America v. Village of Skokie. Collin lost that position when his own Jewish ancestry came to light. Later he became a neo-pagan author.
Collin’s downfall began with the revelation that his father, Max Simon Collin, was a Jew whose original surname had been “Cohen”. Max Cohen/Collin claimed to have been a prisoner at Dachau concentration camp, where Frank Collin was said to have been conceived. While president of the NSPA, Collin was arrested by Michigan police while having sex with a pair of 10-year-old boys. These revelations led to his dismissal from the neo-Nazi movement. A psychiatrist who interviewed Collin declared that he was “consumed by hatred for his father”; it was argued that Collin rejected his father by becoming a neo-Nazi and adopting and publicly espousing antisemitic beliefs. Collin was convicted of child molestation and sent to Pontiac prison in 1979. He served three years of a seven-year sentence.
After being released, Collin re-emerged into the spotlight as the author, “Frank Joseph”. In 1987 he had a book published, The Destruction of Atlantis: Compelling Evidence of the Sudden Fall of the Legendary Civilization. Collin/Joseph is now a self-described neo-pagan and edits The Ancient American magazine, which promotes the theory of diffusion of peoples in and out of the Americas in prehistoric times.
Maybe Counter-Currents has this book.

What’s the deal with negros in SC?
When I was in the Army, we had a negro who was a proud Southern. Had the flag up in his barracks room, defended the South against anyone who insulted us and was fond of saying stuff like the South would rise again.
There use to be an older negro from SC who attended some of the same defend the flag rallies I had. I’ve seen him on the youtube standing for the flag on his own, with no support, against other negros.
Now the young negro in the story.
Two days back, I was at a memorial service where a young negro sung the american national anthem and he did the song in the traditional, non-ghetto way. And he did it well. I could tell men had to fight back tears. Wonder if he’s from SC?
The Gods tamed those that were in their sphere. Then the Gods were expelled. There are remnants of civilization, even among some negroes.
It is certainly an interesting symbol.
Is it now the policy of OD that slavery was a good system and should, perhaps be re-instituted? I ask because even many of the strong Southern supporters who I am friends with (I know a bunch of civil war re-enactors, all on the side of the South, here in Oregon) would say something like: “slavery was a mistake, slavery was coming to an end, and could have been ended in the US without Lincoln’s war, as it was in most of the rest of the world”, or words to that effect.
I’ve yet to see anyone else put forward a formula that “slavery was good and we should be proud of the Confederate cause because it was defending slavery”, which seems to be what you are saying here.
If it was good then, would it be good again, in your estimation? Would it be limited to Blacks, or would you re-implement the even older style of, say, Roman slavery where anyone could be a slave depending on circumstance?
“As Kevin Levin explains, the Confederate flag was “carried by the military arm of a government pledged to defend slavery and white supremacy.”
Don’t you have anything better to do with your time than agitate? The answer is no, it’s in his blood. If his kinsmen hadn’t brought the African slaves to the New World, we would’ve never had a Civil War in the first place!
These people never, ever stop. Just another example of a so-called “progresssive” (in reality, subversive) Jew showing us his “intolerance.”
Guess what, Kevin? I’m offended by your Zionist kin’s Israeli flag, one which represents Jewish supremacy, bigotry, cruelty, mistreatment and coldblooded murder of unarmed Palestinian men, women and children along with the ongoing theft of their ancestral homeland!
“Is it now the policy of OD that slavery was a good system and should, perhaps be re-instituted?”
It is a tragedy for both Blacks and Whites in our respective ways that the Negro was brought to the New World and sold into slavery by Jewish slave traders. Never forget that a) White men put an end to slavery, and b) Blacks in Africa still practice it, so go lecture them.
I think it is clear that the sick culture that we are living under today in Britain and America grew out of the “anti-slavery” movement. William Lloyd Garrison opposed African colonization and Indian Removal. He supported women’s suffrage. He opposed the Mexican War.

Wasn’t Harold Covington a Frank Cohen/Collin disciple? It would explain a lot.
I don’t see slavery as either moral or amoral. The Bible doesn’t condemn slavery so neither will I. Also, I think it’s foolish to apply what passes for morality of our time on some other period in history. And I wonder how much worse the life of a slave was vs the life of some hard scrabble farmer? There were not a lot of slave up raisings, even when most White men were away fighting the damnyankees so I figure life could not have been overly hard for them.
Was slavery good? I think that’s a lame question. It was a practical matter. It existed long before slavery showed up in the South. It was an established fact of life the world over. (and still is) The national economy at that time depend on it. The north would not have gotten the cheap raw materials it needed without slavery; the national treasury depended on tariffs which came mostly from the South exporting cotton and other raw materials which would not have been produced so cheaply without some form of slave labor and I’d rather it have been negros then my people.
I would not like to reinstituted slavery (expect as a form of legal punishment where the proceeds of the slave labor went to the injured party). The mechanization of farming and manufacturing means there is no need for it. Jim Crow South seemed like the best possible particle solution for everyone. Statistically, I think it was better for negros as well. However, slavery is alive and well in the USA. The tax burden makes us slaves to the government; alimony and divorce laws make men slaves to ex wives; the govt tells you what you can and cannot do to your property & I’m sure we could all come up with another couple dozen examples.

“I don’t see slavery as either moral or amoral. The Bible doesn’t condemn slavery so neither will I.”
Biblical slavery was not like modern times. It was more like a servant type deal. Most times they were eventually freed. Deuteronomy 15:12-15 , exodus 21:20, Ephesians 6:9, Colossians 4:1, Exodus 21:16,
