The media discovers the neo-Reactionaries. Neo-Confederates are neo-Reactionaries and the biggest movement of the neo-Reactionaries

The above is the link to the story. I think as the public learns what the neo-Reactionary movement is they will begin to recognize what neo-Confederacy  is.

Evidently you can wear a Confederate flag to jury duty in South Carolina

This is the link to the story.

From the article. 

As the lawyer for the defendant, Abusaft said that “I speak for my client” and he was concerned that the shirt and its message were potentially confrontational. The flag shirt and slogan meant to send a message to people, Abusaft said.
But the judge ruled that the woman had stated that she could be fair and impartial, and did not excuse the woman from the potential jury panel. 
Abusaft then chose to use one of his juror “strikes” – both sides have the right to dismiss a certain number of potential jurors when picking a jury. The woman was dismissed from the case and never was seated as a juror.
This is atrocious. The judge needs to be thrown off the bench. I don't see the name of the judge in the article which to me is how "The State" enables neo-Confederacy.

This is my article about not allowing jurors who identify with the Confederacy on juries.

A Coin which I am going to buy. John Brown Quarter

Just purchased one for my collection. A Proof grade.

Will the Texas Nationalist Movement repudiate support from white nationalists groups, probably not.

I call upon the Texas Nationalist Movement to reject white nationalists, racists, and other similar ilk.

For example, this is an article by the Council of Conservative Citizens which is obviously in support of the Texas Secession movement. If the Texas Nationalist Movement is to claim that they are not a racist movement let them reject the Council of Conservative Citizens in a straight forward way. Do not make sure legalistic statement that gives you plausible deniability.

Also, what is the Texas Nationalist Movement doing to keep Council of Conservative members out of their organization.

Is it the Texas Nationalist Movement or the White Texas Nationalist Movement?

If the Texas Nationalist Movement doesn't take effective actions against racists joining their organization I think we know their real agenda. Also, some generic meaningless statement or resolution without  substance is to be laughed at for the transparent ruse that it is.

Related blog posting how the Texas Nationalist Movement is upset by the Federal Govt. courts striking down voter suppression efforts. I think this is a good clue on where they are in regards to race.

Concerning Alt-Right and the Clinton's Living in glass houses and throwing stones

This is an article for which I provided the documentation.

In 2015 I wrote a certified letter to Bill Clinton asking him to retract his letters of praise for the United Daughters of the Confederacy. I didn't get a reply.

The letters are published in the "United Daughters of the Confederacy Magazine" as follows:

1. Vol. 57 No. 8, Sept. 1994

2. Vol. 58 No. 2 Feb. 1995

3. Vol. 58 No. 8, Sept. 1995.

I should also say that I am not concerned about the outrage of political partisans of any types and party hacks in particular.

An earlier blog posting with some background information. It also explains why this is important.

Trump supporters in Texas support secession if Hillary Clinton wins. At least one hostile power has its hopes up.

Public Policy Polling has released the results of a poll in which they included a question about support for secession if Hillary Clinton wins.

For the question, "Would you support or oppose Texas seceding from the United States?" the percentage for secession is 26% and the percentage for staying in the Union is 59%. The article says:

Fortunately for Unionists, a clear majority of 59 percent of Texans said they’d rather stick with the Stars and Stripes, while just 26 percent said they wouldn’t.
I think fortunate would be 95%, expectations have clearly been lowered on this issue.

However when the questions was asked differently the article reports:

But that number dropped when the pollsters followed up by asking whether voters would support secession if Clinton won the election. Forty percent said they would, including 61 percent of Trump supporters.

Russia was quick to pick up on this poll.

The Texas Nationalists are getting excited.

At the Facebook Page "Texans True to the Union" there are tools to oppose Texas secession.

I am continuing to mobilize against Texas secession. You can visit the page for things to do to oppose secession and resolutions for your city or country to declare against secession. In the following blog posting I point out that secession goes both ways and if Texas secedes there is no good reason why a place can't secede right back to the United States of America.

The moment that the public takes Texas secession seriously I think that the Confederacy will become intolerable to Americans.

This is all going to be very serious after the American presidential election is called.

I give it about 5 minutes after it is announced that Hilary Clinton is the next president of the United States for the secession movements to start gaining traction.

I think that Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2016, the secessionist movements will start moving. Probably early in the evening because, if the current polls hold up, Hillary Clinton is likely to be projected the winner early in the evening.

Further with Trump calling for poll watchers there could be inflammatory events where poll watchers and minority voters get into fisticuffs or worse. However, unlike the news articles on this, I don't necessarily see that calling for poll watchers itself is a problem.

This is the article on secession.

This is the article on Trump calling for poll observers.

Now, having poll watchers is a normal part of democracy and a valuable part of democracy. Observers from both parties ensure that there is a fair election. Also, making sure there isn't fraud should be stringent.

The question that is raised is how Trump supporters might carry out their responsibility as poll watchers. Given the temperament of Trump supporters and the inflammatory nature of Trump's rhetoric it could be that they will be disruptive and attempt to illegally deprive minority voters their right to vote. Also, given that a lot of white nationalists are supporting Trump, it might very well be the result that white nationalists will be disrupting the polls.

Given that cell phones now all have high quality video cameras in them, scenes of fighting at a polling place could be distributed immediately across the country and result in conflicts everywhere. With social media inflammatory rumors and statements would spread across the nation. I don't think we can expect Trump to bring calm to such a developing situation.

I think that after the 2012 election reactionaries and others thought that surely in 2016 they would get a conservative in the White House.

When Trump is defeated by Hillary Clinton it will be realized that there is no possibility for some right-wing turn in the future for America.

Also, being defeated by Hillary Clinton, with her high negative ratings, will especially show that there is no possibility of a reaction or white nationalist future for America.

In this article a professor comments:
Some of these groups, Huffmon said, espouse unsavory philosophies, “a crossover between white supremacists and the militia movement.” But, ultimately, he said, it’s about how the groups spend their time. Talking about their beliefs over beers with their buddies is harmless enough, he said.
I think Huffmon's comments show a failure to understand social movements or the power of language. "Talking" "about beliefs" is how thinking is developed, strategies thought out, identities formed.

It is fewer than 60 days to the election. It won't be long before we know the consequences.

Even Donald Trump wants nothing to do with the Confederate flag.

A person bought a Confederate battle flag with the word Trump on it from a vendor outside a Trump rally in Florida.

When he unfurled it, the Trump campaign and local police moved quickly to have the flag removed.

Even the Trump campaign the Confederate battle flag is too extreme.

Secessionists just got a big boost indirectly from Donald Trump

Donald Trump is starting to talk about the election being stolen from him.

This is a link to Jamelle Boule's article,"A Trump Victory a Scary Thought. A Disputed Loss Might Be Scarier."

Let me first say that I disagree with Boule on one thing. A Trump victory would be an unmitigated disaster. However, there are some real concerns about what Trump is saying about himself being defeated in an election, but no, Trump's election would be worse.

That being said, Boule raises some serious concerns.

Trump is starting to talk about the election being rigged against him. That is the election might be stolen from him. This is really dangerous. When Trump is defeated, which I think will be very likely, it is one thing if people think that he lost by a fair election and another if it was stolen. If people think the election was stolen the anger would be considerable.

As it was, if Trump lost I think there would be a great increase of support for secession, but it would be on the idea of separation to have a local majority different from the rest of the nation which has rejected Trump. However, I think the drive for secession would be intensified with the idea that the election was stolen. Then secessionists would claim that only in a separate polity there would be fair elections. Anger would be an emotional force driving secession.

Also, even among those who don't want to secede there might be radical actions. As Boule states:
This was in line with comments from Roger Stone, a longtime adviser to Trump. In a recent interview with Breitbart’s Milo Yiannopoulos, Stone said that Trump should start talking “constantly” about the chance of voter fraud and a rigged election. “He needs to say for example, today would be a perfect example: ‘I am leading in Florida. The polls all show it. If I lose Florida, we will know that there’s voter fraud.’ ” Stone continued in this vein. “ ‘If there’s voter fraud, this election will be illegitimate, the election of the winner will be illegitimate, we will have a constitutional crisis, widespread civil disobedience, and the government will no longer be the government.’ ”
From here, Stone’s language gets ominous. “If you can’t have an honest election, nothing else counts,” he said. “The government will be shut down if they attempt to steal this and swear Hillary in. No, we will not stand for it. We will not stand for it,” Stone said, promising a “bloodbath” of “civil disobedience.”
If there is civil disorder we can expect that neo-Confederates very likely would act in a situation where government authority has broken down.

When Obama won the 2012 election there were slightly over 1,000,000 signatures on the secession petitions at the White House. I printed them out and added the signatures up. Some poll numbers in some Southern states then showed a very surprisingly high percentage of Republicans supporting secession. 

Roger Stone's comments are mentally preparing Trump supporters to engage in civil disobedience when Trump loses, which it appears he likely will. Though we won't know for sure until after the election results are in.

Things have gotten scary and I think that after November we will see the whole nation becoming a Maheur Refuge with lunatics waving guns.
