Why I believe the Confederate Flag is Not Racist

July 4, 2015 1 comment

This is not an attempt to say who is more morally correct but rather to point an obvious set of truths that every one, yes, including myself, ignore very ignorantly and profoundly that it boggles even the most enlightened minds. In every American classroom, in every mainstream media outlet, in every news story, you are told one perspective about the controversy at hand, the Confederate flag. However, I will attempt to give a different perspective contrary to what is taught in every classroom, what is said in every news story, and what is put out by our mainstream media. As a result, in writing this opinion, I may very well lose my job, and my reputation because I will present a different point of view, a different perspective that is not cognizant of the prevailing mainstream media opinions and of the politically correct.

We keep hearing that the Confederate flag is about racism, slavery and all the controversies that pertains to the 1950s and 1960s during the Civil Rights era. Let there be no ambiguity, any form of racism or bigotry is abhorrent, and un-American. It rails against the political pandora’s box created by our Founding Fathers, the Constitution, the Common Law and the sacrifices made by those who struggled, and died for a simple idea: a government of the people, by the people and for the people.

We keep hearing about our fellow Americans of African ancestry being victims of slavery, and racism and our fellow Americans of African ancestry are used as scapegoats as focal point as a racial divide by those in power. It is a sickening a twist to their saga for their citizenship rights. Our fellow American brothers and sisters of African heritage and descent are being played like a violin, and only few realize it, while the majority play right into the narrative, “us versus them” and “black versus white.” It is imperative for the establishment to keep Americans divided among ethnic lines, because it gives them a reason for their existence. Imagine, if we all joined hands, regardless of skin color or ethnicity and told the establishment, that no, we will not fall into their trap of creating conflict between the races, that we are united in brotherhood and sisterhood as American citizens and we demand ALL of our citizenship rights. If we did that, the establishment would have no reason for their existence and that in itself would be cause for celebration among all of America’s people.

However, before addressing the issue of the Confederate flag and its meaning, we are ignoring the true victims of racism, we are forgetting the true recipients of our governments racism, and bigoted policies long before and after slavery step foot on this continent. We are forgetting the once proud people that once roamed this land, we are forgetting the Native American in which under the Stars and Stripes suffered the most than any people who have step foot on this continent. All we have to do is simply ask: where are they today?

We said to these people, the Native American, we come in peace, lay down your arms and we will lay down ours so that we can talk peace, friendship, establish commerce and trade. Yet, in their reward for their kindness and trust, they received blankets with disease; in the end they received our greatest gift, war and destruction. In all the treaties and agreements with Native Americans, not one was ever honored by our government. Instead, we slaughtered these people by the millions, and in some cases to save bullets or when we ran out of bullets, we used our sabers, bayonets or anything that resembled a weapon to kill their women and children. The suffering of these people under the Stars and Stripes, no pen or paper can never ever be truly described.

We saw their land, and how beautiful it was, and like a child wanting what is not theirs, we slaughtered their most prized possessions, we slaughtered their women and children. We took what was not ours, and now we call it our land. Possessing their land was not enough so we put a nail in their coffin by killing their food source, the buffalo, we sealed their fate by putting them in concentration camps, but our government and mainstream media likes to call them reservations. We forcefully assimilated their children and rid them of their language, their culture, and what is left of their culture are in history books or college campuses. However, we need not to worry, our history books, our classrooms, and our media does not call it racism, they just call it a series of unfortunate events, like the Trail of Tears.

Our media will say, that its just the past, just history and not racism. They would rather call it a conflict between diverse communities, rather than call it for what it really is, the Native American Holocaust based on pure racism and condoned by the United States government, under the Stars and Stripes. All we have to do is simply look at the movies that are produced about Native Americans by Hollywood, and that is a small minute detail in a long trail of racism and abuses under the American flag and not the Confederate flag. In addition, all we have to do is look at their current state, and all you will find is a once proud people are now destitute, poor, fragile, ridden with issues of alcoholism and drugs. But do not worry, there is not enough of them to cause any civil strife because the U.S. government, under the Stars and Stripes, have successfully disarmed them; they have effectively put the Native American in their place.

Our Stars and Stripes, our flag standard, is more drenched in blood, pure racism, death, deceit, suffering, tears and sadness than the Confederate flag, which flew for only 4 years. Yet, there are those today who wish to paint the picture that four years of the life of the Confederate States of America is much worse than the entire life of our current republic or that the actions of a minority are representative of a whole.

So the next time some one says the Confederate flag is racist, politely ask them, and what of the Native American under the Stars and Stripes? Don’t forget to include those who suffered the most under the current flag, the Native American. I think it is safe to say, we owe the Native American a simple apology because so far, I haven’t heard one yet.

How blind are we, the American people, to not see what we have done, and are continuing to do under the Stars and Stripes? We are in denial, that supposedly we are freest republic on the Earth, but yet we allow and behave like the most tyrannical. No other proof is needed than the abuses of government against the liberties they are sworn, and duty bound to protect of every American citizen under the Stars and Stripes. In our own hypocrisy, we have an inept president who has done nothing to solve the upheaval between the races, or to protect our rights as he swore to do upon taking his oath of office. However, because of the color of his skin, criticizing him will get you labeled as racist simply because you disagree with his policies and actions. We have a Congress that the best money can buy and if you dare say otherwise publicly, the mainstream media will call you a conspiracy theorist or delusional.

Perhaps, if the American people educated themselves about our Constitution, our republic’s history, about Native Americans, and causes of the War Between the States, and not some watered down public school version to make us feel better about ourselves and government, they would see, that yes, there is more to our flag than “Land of the Free, and Home of the Brave.” The American people will find that our flag is dripping with innocent blood, lies and deceit.

However, it is rather unfortunate, that the American citizenry are too lazy to care or are too busy being manipulated by those who want them in bondage and disunited. This modern day form of slavery need not chains or whips but rather strict obedience to their masters who will send swarms of armed men to kidnap, imprison, to brutalize people, or confiscate private property. If these patriot Americans resist, if they continue in defending their rights, these swarms of armed men, also known as the police, have the authority of the State and Federal government to invade their homes, and kill them. The media will call these swarms of armed men heroes, but to their victims, they are known as enforcers and tools of the tyrants.

Don’t want to pay your car registration tax? The government will seize your property. Want to smoke a plant that harms no one? The U.S. Government will send armed men from a chosen alphabet soup agency to kidnap you, seize your property, your life savings, imprison you and destroy your life. All this is being done under the Stars and Stripes!

Ironically, Hitler did not have to invade the U.S. to have the tyranny that we have today disguised as the N.S.A., C.I.A. or Homeland Security under the Stars and Stripes. Having these views, in our republic, today, will have you labeled by our government, our politicians and mainstream media as a potential domestic extremist, paranoid delusional individual or terrorist because we dare speak out against the tyranny that is coming over these States. It is the same tyranny that our ancestors brothers and sisters fought against. When the King, proclaimed these colonies in revolt, and President of these States proclaimed those southern States are in rebellion against their respective governments, those brave men answered the call of freedom and willingly put their lives at risk.

It is apparent, that we Americans are so slighted and easily distracted that we have not learned from the history of our German counterparts when tyranny in the form of Nazism plagued Germany. Let us remind ourselves of our recent history with regards to Hitler; Hitler did not enter Berlin with army tanks, he was elected by a wide majority of the people. Speaking out against Hitler and Nazis became hazardous to one’s health, especially when the population was completely disarmed and only government had all the firearms. If you spoke out against the Nazi regime, if your opinion differed from the Nazi propaganda machine, you were labeled an enemy of the state, and thus your life as you knew it was over. These German citizens did not commit any crimes, they did not violate any one’s rights, all they did was simply believed differently and the life of their family and friends was over. Sound familiar?

In order to understand the controversy, we must first understand the underlying the history of our southern sister States to even grasp why the Confederate flag is revered by them. William E. Gladstone once said, that our U.S. Constitution was the greatest work ever written by the brain of men. This is undoubtedly true, yet, before and after the Constitution was ratified, the debate arose at the Philadelphia Convention and Congress as to the nature of this form of government. The Federalist papers, and the Anti-Federalist papers are a testament of this debate, and yet our citizenry are extremely ignorant of the debate.

It is undoubtedly true, slavery was the immediate cause in the woeful conflict between the States, it was the focal point in which the arguments centered on. However, had there been no slavery, there would have been no war, and there would have been no slavery if the South’s protests against the introduction of institution had been listened to when it was initially introduced by Northern colony of Massachusetts Bay.

Before the blistering bayonets and hostilities of 1861 began, the debates arose in Congress as to the nature of what ought to be our fraternal government, a voluntary union of independent sovereign States bound together by that noble fabric of parchment called the Constitution. This document, signed by the Founding Fathers, and sealed forever more by those soldiers, black, white and yes, Native American, too, with their sacred honor, lives, fortunes and revolutionary blood.

Even after the Constitution was signed, and ratified, the nature of the Constitution was continually debated in the halls of Congress. This debate tested willingness of Hamilton and Jefferson to compromise, and taxed the patience of Washington in their endeavors to define the nature of the relationship of the Constitution and sister States. Soon, the argument entered a sectional phase and what were words of fraternal brotherhood among these States, soon became a war of words until finally the argument of the nature of the government became so fractured that sadly, both sides believed the argument could no longer be settled in the halls of Congress, but sadly, the battlefield. A time when one side fought for perpetual ideas of a strong central government and the other side fought liberty in the independence of the States as bequeathed by our Forefathers.

The South responded with a depth of fraternal conviction to the charges of the North that secession was illegal, she argued that secession was not illegal, and the reasons for their action, as done by the original 13 States, were similar to those by our Forefathers. The South argued, that the States upon joining the union was a voluntary act, that each State had not surrendered their hard fought independence, which their mother country, finally in 1783, recognized each colony, as a free and sovereign independent State.

She argued, the essential American doctrine, that the right to govern rest upon the Consent of the Governed, and that by the expressed written terms of the Constitution, all rights, and all powers not delegated were reserved to all the States. Our southern sister States challenged both the North and the Federal government to find any trace of delegated authority in the Constitution where any State or groups of States can invade or coerce a free and sovereign State. These doctrines, in her vindication to the right to secede, to assert their independence, were the echoes and the same epithets by Washington, Hancock, Adams, Jefferson, Henry and Light Horse Harry Lee.

In the four years of bloody work, it safe to say, there is nothing that could be said or done that could have saved slavery since it was a dying institution in the Western world. No other proof is needed than the examples of our European counterparts across the ocean in their gradual abolition of the horrid institution of slavery. The prevailing thought than became not if slavery would cease but of when it would cease. Had slavery been allowed to die its slow death, the issues of racism that plague us today would be silent, and the topic of discussion would be the nature of our fraternal government.

Regardless of what you are told in the media, no matter the color of your skin, you should honor the fact that these men, both Northern, Southern and yes, Native American fought for freedom as they understood it to be. Those soldiers, in the tribunal of last resort, valor contended against valor, brave men against brave men are the true Patriots of the our blessed Republic. These soldiers fought for neither fame, or reward, place or rank and they stood fast to their duties as true Patriots of the Constitution, these men sacrificed their lives for an idea, freedom and died. I would implore any one to find racism in that; these are the values that our southern brothers and sisters view in their flag and not slavery.

There will be those that will compare the Confederate flag with the Nazi flag. They will make claim that both flags are equal to one another, and that both harbor ill will towards those who do not fit the mold in which they are represented under. However, we must understand that one flag argues the reason for their establishment is based on the principles outlined in the Declaration of Independence, by our forefathers in the likes of Patrick Henry, Daniel Webster and theories of John Locke and the other on the supremacy of a master race of people, and the extreme suppression of ideas.

In defense of our American history, I venture to say, that we must not let the actions of a few vocal minority define the majority. Therefore, I dare say, that Confederate State’s history is American history, the Confederate flag is also an American flag. We should not be ashamed of our history, and rather we should learn from our past, embrace, understand and comprehend it as best we can to move forward as a republic.

Response Commentary: Sheriff Knezovich Addresses “Hatemongering” Article by InfoWars

InfoWars Article: Police Caught Saying MRAP is for Constitutionalists

Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich Response Video to InfoWars Article: Click to view


 

Dear Ozzie Knezovich,

I understand why you did this response video the InfoWars article, and video that was released in regards to your deputy saying that the MRAP was for “Constitutionalists.” However, I think you need to understand the real underlying reason for the outrage, and I do not think you understand it. May be you do, and may be I’m being too cynical about it. It is not a coincidence that police departments all around our republic are getting these weapons and tools of war. We are seeing these weapons and tools of war used by the police against American citizens to execute search warrants, collect on student loans, fines and other nuances that would simply take two or three police officers to do.

Something is happening with our police departments all around our republic and yet, when we bring these issues to light, we are villified as being paranoid, delusional, or my favorite one an Alex Jones Conspiracy theorist. I guess I must be one of those “Constitutionalists” your deputy was talking about because I will never follow an un-Constitutional law or order; keep in mind, I’m just a civilian, I have never swore an oath to an office, or duty. However, I recognize that as part of my citizenship, our civic duty as American citizens is to never obey police or President Obama unlawful commands should they issue one, but to obey the lawful commands of the Constitution, to question every thing around us.

So when we see a deputy, a sheriff, a congressman or officer of government say these things, it raises an eyebrow or two. Look at what is happening all around our republic with these laws the several States in our Union are passing for “legislation” such as, for example, the New York SAFE Act, or Connecticut’s firearms legislation, and look who they are looking to enforce these draconian laws. You, and your deputies. Of course, than, add to that you have the general government buying 2 billion rounds of ammunition, and small town police departments getting these tools of war which are practically tanks, and getting gear that makes them look like soldiers.

It ceases to be a conspiracy theory when they doing the very things we are concerned about right in front of our faces. Other police officers have said it in plain writing that they wishing for the day to be given the order to go and get firearms of law abiding American citizens. So you see why when see people, like your deputy, says the thing that he said and it raises eyebrows and brings condemnation? We see it all over YouTube, police doing the unthinkable, and yet, when the questions are raised, all we get is terse response and no wrong doing. Just like your claim that your deputy did nothing wrong, according to you in your video. The American people are on edge, they see something is happening with our police & government, and something is wrong. May be you do not see it because you’re part of the system, so your view is skewed

Look, I recognize that there people out there who claim to be “Constitutionalists” but are merely people who are opportunists who bend the law to their dictates and likings; just like there are police officers who claim to be for the Constitution but yet are the first ones at a illegal check point demanding drivers licenses for no reason.

Something is happening in our republic, and unless we fix it and address it now, it is only going to get worse. I dread the day that an American will have to pick up their firearm, and draw his weapon against another armed American because he is in fear of losing his unalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Last time that happened, six hundred thousand lost their lives and I don’t think we want  repeat of history.

I Do Not Support the Israeli Bombardment of Gaza

July 19, 2014 Leave a comment

Most wars, if not all, are the result of direct or indirect economic or financial gain. It can be said that throughout human history there were few wars that have ever been fought in the name of freedom. The great moral, political and social causes of those wars are normally secondary or tertiary in nature and are never the focus until after the masses are solidarity with the government. The only exception to this is the American revolution, where only one-third of American supported the effort and the two-thirds did not care or supported the British.

Recently, on the news, we have been privileged of seeing the handy work of the Israeli Defense Forces(IDF) bombardment of Gaza. Now, the IDF ground forces are going into Gaza and are leaving a path of destruction. This is all under the guise of taking revenge against Gaza/Hamas for the alleged murder of three Israeli citizens. Keep in mind, I say alleged because neither Israel or the international community have put forward any factual evidence that would support the narrative that Hamas is at fault.

It is no question, that I do not agree with the ideology behind Hamas, neither do I condone the notion of wiping the Jewish people off of the map. However, the government of Gaza and the people of Gaza are two distinct and separate entities and it is our duty as critical thinking human beings to separate the two lest we fail in using the great gray mass between our ears.

It is no quandary, that the non-muslim world mistrusts the muslim world, and it is with good reason. It was not that long ago, the muslim world were at the Gates of Vienna, and through great sacrifice, Europeans were able to push back the muslim armies. Now what was once the great muslim age, it is now in state of such great decline that to repair muslim society and would require a great reawakening. Since than, the Western world has held great contempt for the muslim world, and it is the same contempt that the Israeli government has had with the Arabs of Gaza and the West Bank.

It must be understood, that I have no quarrel with our Jewish and muslim brothers and sisters. However, I do take exception, today, to what Israel is doing right now. By the time you finish reading this, people will have died in Gaza, and ask yourself, for what? Let their be no mistake, the taking of any human life is tragic, but I would take exception to blaming the whole community of the Arabs in Gaza. I take extreme exception of the destruction of their homes, schools, and infrastructure. All they ask to be left alone, and to live in peace. Yet, here we have a Israeli government Hell-bent on destroying the will of the populace and creating a new generation of people who grow to hate Israel, and the Jewish people, thus repeating the cycle of violence. It is one thing if the whole population of Gaza is behind Hamas, and are actively trying to invade Israel proper, than Israel has every right to defend its sovereignty. Although, I would think that we would have learned from mankind’s recent history, that total-war solves nothing but creates a new generation of enemies, and the end result being a renewed cycle of destruction, each time being much worse than the latter.

If any invading army, G-d forbid, ever tried to invade the United States, would we not employ the same tactics? Would we not try every strategy to rid our land of the invaders and call them heroes? It is rather interesting, that we would consider a freedom fighter in the West, in the muslim and Middle Eastern world we call them terrorists.

The Arabs of Gaza, I believe, now are trying to defend themselves, and they’re using any means they have available to defend their homes, at least what is left of their homes. Their is an invading foreign power, Israel, attempting to subjugate them by the barrel of the gun, and yet the media is reporting that the Gaza people are firing rockets into Israel, and yet the media is conveniently leaving out the death and destruction left behind by our “ally” Israel. The Western media are not showing the pictures of the children being maimed, or killed. The Western media are not showing you the mothers, brothers or father killed while trying to protect their homes and families. They’re conveniently leaving that out because if you were aware of what Israel is doing, you would be outraged, and our leadership is guilty of allowing Israel to continue the slaughter of the Arabs of Gaza. The Western media are not showing you the celebration or gatherings of Israelis cheering on the destruction of homes, and death of civilians. If the media did its just job properly, the American people would be outraged!

What would our response be if a foreign power did such a thing to us or to any of our close allies? Do you think we would sit idly by and just watch? This is what our tax dollars are paying for. Each year we donate to Israel 3 Billion USD to help their war machine, and it is my opinion that we should no longer condone or even support this behavior by our “ally.”

It is my opinion that their is a financial incentive for Israel invade Gaza, that they are doing this for a financial gain, and not great moral ideas or justice. As an American, I can not, and I will not condone or support this aggressive action by Israel. This is not the Middle Eastern democracy I want to support, my conscience as an American, and sense of justice but most importantly my heart tells me so.

We Need Immigration Enforcement and Not Immigration Reform

There is talk on Capitol Hill on more immigration reform. President Obama says he’ll act without Congress and while the debate rages on what to do by our government, illegal aliens, better known as illegal immigrants have entered our republic illegally.

Why is this happening? Why can’t our leadership enforce our immigration laws? The answer is simple, it is because they have no interest in enforcing our immigration laws. This is all but a dog and pony show to get you, the American people, to believe that President Obama actually cares about illegal immigrants. A news flash for every one out there, if President Obama actually cared about solving the illegal immigration problem plaguing the southern United States, he would have put troops, or more border guards on our southern border.

Don’t believe me? The president of the United States is the commander-in-chief of the armed forces, guess what? He has the authority to put troops on the border with Mexico and order them to enforce the border.

Notice how we are so quick to order troop deployments to Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and other countries around the world, but we’re not so keen on sending troops on our borders to enforce the border. Ask yourself, why is that? You will than come to the realization that Barack Obama never intended to enforce the border in the first place. Him, and the likes of Nancy Pelosi with criminal intent are not honoring their oaths, they are committing open treason against the United States by not enforcing its laws thus bringing about anarchy in the land, which means they are committing treason by sedition.

It is my opinion that the real intent of President Obama and Nancy Pelosi is to bring in illegal immigrants, so that they can vote Democrat, and in effect create a one party system. Does this sound familiar courtesy of NAZI Germany? You see President Obama is taking over our republic by breaking down our laws, and as result is using this anarchy to justify his own existence as president, and thus eventually leading to the suspending of the U.S. Constitution.

It is the only conclusion of where this leads to because if you notice, as president of the United States, the president is charged with enforcing our laws. Ask yourself, why is it that he is making a huge effort to not enforce the current laws on the books? Why is it that he is saying there needs to be a path to citizenship? Why is it that he is refusing to enforce our borders? Why is it that he is actively doing nothing but to delay to resolve the problem? Any president worth their salt, any president who understands his or her oath to the United States, and the Constitution would not be stonewalling or pussy footing around the issue and would put a stop to the lawlessness now, and not later.

Also, why does the media and government insist on calling those individuals who have broken our immigration laws as “undocumented immigrant?” Why not call them for what they really are, ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS or ILLEGAL ALIENS. This comes to show you that the mainstream media are in on it, too. Why do I say this? It is because if the media were doing its job properly, they would call things for what they really are and would not sugar coat it with a fancy buzz word. This is like calling a serial rapist or murderer a “misunderstood individual.” What is there to misunderstand, except that these individuals are ILLEGALLY here, and have thus broken our immigration laws.

The fact that illegal immigrant minors are being encouraged to come here testifies to the fact that this is done deliberatively shows you our governments knows what it is doing and as a result is allowing it to continue. Illegal immigrants get better treatment than our veterans or poor and this comes to show you the state of our republic and the disdain that President Obama, Nancy Pelosi and the likes thereof has for us. They’re interested in our laws, they’re interested in staying in power, and they’re interested in seeing how much money they can make off of the backs of hard working Americans.

 

My greatest fear, is that the only way to fix the problems now inherent in our republic is not through the ballot box, because it has shown time, and time again it is not working. The argument will soon be exhausted, the long war of words between the leaders of our republic and the American citizen will be waxed into a war of guns.

 

The American citizen, I am afraid, will come to the realization gradually and naturally in this furnace of debate, the ballots have been cast, our leaders have not honored their oaths, nothing has been done, and the citizenry will assume the mantle once held by our Southern Sister States in 1861, by the great Troup of Georgia: “The argument is exhausted; we stand to our guns.”
