Happy Robert E. Lee Day!


“I think it better to do right, even if we suffer in so doing, than to incur the reproach of our consciences and posterity.”
– General Robert E. Lee

OD is closed for business today in observance of Robert E. Lee Day 2012. We return tomorrow to the full time business of glorifying the Lost Cause, tearing down BRA brick by brick, and waging the Kulturkampf against the enemies of the South. Enjoy these music videos!

  1. Duty then is the sublimest word in the English language. You should do your duty in all things. You can never do more, you should never wish to do less.
    – Robert E. Lee

    I know you have written many times about Wade Hampton & South Carolina during reconstruction.

    Here is the story of Manse Jolly a Confederate soldier who fought reconstrution in the piedmont of South Carolina & elsewhere. Jolly a poor farmer may well have pushed the wealthy low country planter Wade Hampton into action:

    Enjoy the day.

  3. Earlmondo Pitts III : Good info about Manse Jolly. Col. William Clarke Quantrell and his Raiders who fought under Black Flag (No Quarter Given) is interesting also. Gen Halleck gave order to shot on sight Quantrell or any member of his Raiders after the war. My Great Great Grandfather Amos Millage Thomas and his Brother Joel had a farm in Richland County, S.C. The Yanks took their farm. They migrated to Ware County, Ga. and near Okeefeenokee Swamp to survive Reconstruction. They both produced large families. They were also Scot Rite Masons. I know that had something to do with their survival also. All the property records and deeds were burned and destroyed by yanks. They could not vote or run for political office or own land in their name for 20 years. The whole state of S.C. was taken over by the North Trade Cartel like Richard Kelly Hoskins explains in Chapter 6 The South Meets the Establishment in his Vigilantes of Christendom. All the cottage industries and self efficiency farms were destroyed and most every one driven into the slave cities to work in thier cotton mills and such things. Anyway Earlmundo—good info about Manse Jolly……

  4. This is interesting: while researching the 1910 edition of the Encyclopaedia Britannica and its entry on “Negro,” (go to crimesofthetimes.com), I discovered to my delight that the author inserted into the bibliography for this perspicacious assessment of the african (“The negro would appear to stand on a lower evolutionary plain than the white man, and to be more closely related to the highest anthropoids” Yikes!) the title of a book written by none other than Frederick Law Olmsted, he of Central Park fame, entitled: “The Cotton Kingdom: A Journey Through the Slave States.”

    See it here via Google Books :


    Here’s another good one that I have a feeling Hunter is going to love, if he doesn’t know of it already :

    “The Negro: The Southerner’s Problem” (1904) by Thomas Nelson Page :

  5. Do your duty in all things. You cannot do more, you should never wish to do less.

    Get correct views of life, and learn to see the world in its true light. It will enable you to live pleasantly, to do good, and, when summoned away, to leave without regret.

    We must expect reverses, even defeats. They are sent to teach us wisdom and prudence, to call forth greater energies, and to prevent our falling into greater disasters.

    In all my perplexities and distresses, the Bible has never failed to give me light and strength.

    My chief concern is to try to be an humble, earnest Christian.

    Robert E Lee

    May the Almighty God bless Gen Lee, and the souls of all men who stood up to linclon and for liberty

  6. Post Script :

    It is interesting to note re: my last comment two things :

    1) Frederick Law Olmsted apparently co-founded “The Nation”;

    2) Wikipedia as an historical information source is most unreliable.

    The Wiki entrance on The Nation makes no mention of Olmsted, for example; also, concerning historical texts especially those focusing on The Question (as Thomas Nelson Page puts it), conspicuously absent are those references to un-PC sounding titles, such as Olmsted’s “Journeys through the Slave States.”

    Thank God for the internet: it is going to blow the lid off the Late Twentieth Century Delusion once and for all.

  7. More gems from Google Books : “The American Negro” by William Hannibal Thomas (1901) :


    A juicy excerpt that stings the eyeballs with its right-sounding accuracy :

    “That his nature is surcharged with latent ferocity is shown by abundant evidence of atrociousness, committed on weak and defenceless objects. Indeed, there is good ground for believing that, were the negro once convincingly assured of personal security, all the malignity of his slumbering savagery would immediately find expression in the most revolting acts of physical lawlessness. His passions are easily excited, and his feelings readily inflamed to the point of reckless vindictiveness, though a natural unsteadiness of character renders him fickle and unstable in purpose.”



  8. Hunter, maybe you can explain something for me.

    Why isn’t Santorum’s strong stand on immigration helping him with primary voters in South Carolina? Given their Arizona style immigration law and their conflicts with the Obama administration, I would expect Santorum to be a big hit.

    Instead, they seem to be flocking to Gingrich of all people.

  9. Santorum was robbed of official victory by his party in Iowa.

    He’s just playing along and does not have real ambition. He’s been very nice to competitors. (JEB is likely to win in 2016 once the press stitch up Romney)

    Also Santorum was heavily into African charity work. He helped the beast breed.
