McCain Picketed by Confederate Flag Wavers

A McCain speaking engagement was picketed by Confederate flag waivers.

This South Carolina League of the South is probably behind it. They have already had one "flagging," as they call it, of McCain before. Go down the web page for the two McCain items.

Other organizations and individuals might be involved also.

I think we are going to see more of this as the presidential campaign continues. I think the democrats will likely be targeted, since it seems no Republican candidate besides McCain can take a stance against the Confederate flag.

"Yankee Governor with Southern Values" Romney campaigns in the South

(The above are some scans of a T-shirt that was sold by Southern Partisan magazine.)

This two articles mention how Romney is being touted as the "Yankee governor with Southern values." (Spartanburg Herald, in South Carolina.)

Of course with "Southern" values there is the implication that there are unsouthern values. The articles don't really spell out what "Southern values" are.

The Neo-Confederates are very clear that Southern values are reactionary values. I think Romney is trying to say that he has religious right values, but it is interesting to see how the ideology of the Neo-Confederates is being mainstreamed.

I recommend to the reader my essay on white banal nationalism at this link:

There are several dozen anti-Confederate flag cartoons at this link.

Many are quite hilarious.

Another United Daughters of the Confederacy Ku Klux Klan postcard

Well I think this shows what the meaning of "Confederate heritage" is about.
I blogged on the other United Daughters of the Confederacy KKK post card last year and have it online at this link.

A picture of the pulling down of the statue of King George III

Sometimes when it is proposed that a Confederate statue be removed some one will counter that in America we don't remove statues. This picture will show that is not true. During the American Revolution the statue of King George III was pulled down by the Americans.

A lot of times when you hear various rationalizations in defense of Confederate monuments and statues, etc. the historical claims are just made up out of thin air.

Mentioned on "Nation" magazine website in article on Rudy Giuliani's South Carolina Campaign head, Arthur Ravenal Jr.

The link to the article is at:

I was able to dig up the Council of Conservative Citizens article, the Southern Partisan article, and the congressional record entries. As the blog says, I have the congressional record entries on my Presidential candidates web page which I provide a link to on the right margin of my blog.

Incidentally, I have made a minor modification to my web site to explain that my resume is a source of online articles.
