James Webb's Confederate consciousness

I just now realized that James Webb the author of "Born Fighting" a book that popularizes Neo-Confederate Celtic South nonsense, is the same James Webb running for the U.S. Senate in Virginia.

Here is Webb's speech at Arlington Confederate Memorial.

I will notify the same individuals that I notified about George Allen, but I probably won't get much interest. It is a wicked world.

What is interesting is that the Republicans aren't making any use of it either. However, having a pro-Confederate voter base they are hardly in a position to criticize Webb for being pro-Confederate. What would be amusing if the Sons of Confederate Veterans issued something praising Webb.

All in all, I am not sure who would be worse being elected. I think that I would rather see Allen elected rather than Webb. Allen doesn't seem to be very intelligent and nor will he be able to push Neo-Confederacy, since he will be trying to live down his reputation, and I think he is just a simple bigot with a Confederate fetish, and doesn't have a neo-Confederate ideology. Webb on the other hand has some smarts and is a major promoter of Neo-Confederacy and will be able to use the apparatus of government to do so. He will be much more dangerous to the future of the nation.

Maybe this is what the Republicans are thinking of in their Anti-Ford Drum Beat ad.

This is from page 2, July 1960, "The Citizens' Council," the newspaper of the Citizen Councils in the 1950s-60s.

There is an editorial about the problems in the Congo advocating the idea that African Americans should not vote, since the events in the Congo supposedly prove that having African Americans vote would produce like results.

Working on the Next book/ Writing to Presidential Candidates

I was hoping to blog some more now that the book manuscript had been sent to the publishers, but I immediately have gone to work on the next book. I am also writing up some technical papers, and spent Sunday working through some mathematical equations modeling a process I am working on as an engineer.

I have two books I am working on. One I will not say what the topic is, since I want to continue to get material. The second book is on primary historical sources showing the intent and direction of the pro-slavery/confederate/neo-Confederate tradition from Antebellum times to the Modern Civil Rights era. I have a lot of fascinating and little known material.

However, I do hope to get some more posting done.


It would be useful for residents of states or congressional districts or cities where potential presidential are governors/U.S. Senators, congressional representatives or mayors respectively, to write these persons regarding Confederate symbols and Neo-Confederacy. I will try to come up with some topics. I think U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.'s program of making sure that the National Park Services have slavery mentioned at the Battlefield parks is an important item.

Quoted in article in Mississippi

I was interviewed about the Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV) and the direction Beauvoir might go with it being taken over by the radicals.

Confederate Heritage/Citizens Councils

The cartoon to the left is from "The Citizens' Council" a white supremacist group of upper and middle class persons primarily in the South during the 1950s and 60s (page 4, Dec. 1958). The cartoon is a reference to the NAACP. The publication is full of lengthy arguments about the Constitution and States' Rights and other soundings of high principals, but the cartoons give it all away where the White Citizens' Council members are coming from. The publication is also full of Confederate flags and references to the Confederacy. In one poem the ghost of Robert E. Lee comes visiting to shame southerners to fight civil rights.

The publication also demolishes Shelby Foote's argument that the Confederate battleflag was misused by yahoos. The Citizens' Councils were led by the leaders of socity in the South and it is quite clear what Confederate heritage means to them.

Also it is interesting how the paper endlessly engages in victimhood, a strategy that is still embraced by Neo-Confederates.

You can see all the issues of the newspaper at the web site and read the issues. You will find that many of the arguments against civil rights then have their echoes today.

Anti-Gay African American Church Works with Person Who Speaks to CofCC Gatherings.

The story is here.

Click here for "Bay Windows" article.

I supplied the documentation on Tony Perkins and his involvement with the Council of Conservative Citizens.

Tom Wildmon who spoke via video feed at this event interviewed in the "Southern Partisan."

A lot of the major and minor homophobes in the U.S. are involved at some level with Neo-Confederacy. Also, I know that in the Dallas area, conservative African American Churches had no problem working with a Christian newspaper that promoted the Confederate flag and praised R.L. Dabney, a pro-slavery theologian and a person with vitriolic anti-African prejudices.

Other reporters and activists might look for interconnections between anti-gay African American churches and white supremacists.


I was contacted by a journalist for an article which will run this weekend, I think Sunday. I will post a notice of it. I am quoted.

Been busy finishing book manuscript, goes to publisher tomorrow or Wednesday

We have been working on the book manuscript: editing, footnotes, etc. It is a tremendous amount of work, but it is going to be sent to the publisher tomorrow or the day after.

Tentatively the title will be "Neo-Confederacy: A Critical Introduction."

Of course this book will be the perfect gift for all occasions, Christmas, Valentine's Day, Father's Day, Mother's Day, St. Wenceslas Day, May Day, etc.

Now that the book manuscript is done. I hope to blog more. In fact I have an item upcoming.

I am also working on another book about Neo-Confederacy, and we have made some substantial progress on it.

Counterpunch indulges racism

"Counterpunch" has this article on a convention of secessionists .

It is a remarkably uncritical article. Thomas Naylor has been pushing Vermont secessionism. What is not mentioned in this article and other articles is that he is a contributor to the League of the South periodical "Southern Patriot."

Not surprisingly the League of the South considers it a nice write up.

Click here for League of the South blog item on CounterPunch.

The Middlebury Institute seems to be a project of Naylor and Sales.

Kirkpatrick Sales is a contributor to Chronicles Magazine, the publication of the Rockford Institute, a racist right organization. Nov. 2005 page 20.

The Counterpunch policy seems to be a free pass for racism as long as they are anti-war. Counterpunch however can't seem to understand the geography of the Republican's electoral majority.
