A Refutation of Jesse James: Last Rebel of the Civil War by T.J. Stiles

Jesse James: Last Rebel of the Civil War

 

Being a writer, historian and defender of Southern History, more specifically “Reconstruction Era” Southern/Confederate History that is rife with political bias and inaccuracies by writers looking to demonize not only the Confederate cause but also the good, God fearing Southern people (many of them my relatives) caught under the yoke of Federal tyranny during so-called “Reconstruction”, this brief refutation of T.J. Stiles book on Jesse James was a breath of fresh air to be sure.

 

“Stiles offers the most recent interpretation of Jesse as a political terrorist. Stiles continually laments the end of Reconstruction and is on the side of the oppressed blacks.

These days, however, after George Floyd, Black Lives Matter, and a never-ending cycle of black crime and welfare abuse that is harder to defend than it was 30 years ago, Jesse’s stance might have new admirers.

In his ‘History of the American People’, Paul Johnson notes that the Civil War ended the slavery problem and began the Negro problem, which is still with us.

An authoritarian federal government such as the one that arose under Abraham Lincoln and persisted until the end of Reconstruction dismantled it has arisen again, and in the age of Biden it is readily acknowledged to be an immoral, tyrannical threat to the American people. Perhaps not by all of them, but certainly the smell of disenfranchisement is in the air as much as it was in Jesse’s world of 1861 Missouri.

Yet now, a great percentage of the American populace is seen as “Deplorables,” and it is being made clear by the Yankees’ descendants that this is a class which mustn’t be allowed to exist. In the 2020 election, Chris Wallace grilled both candidates about white supremacy. Now, merely being white is crime enough, according to the ruling class. I wonder if more and more people are thinking that if I’m gonna do the time, I might as well do the crime. Jesse appears less as Robin Hood today than as someone fighting to stay alive against a repressive government. As the bumper sticker says, when freedom is outlawed, only outlaws will be free.

Perhaps the final word on Jesse James and his bushwhacker past might be from Ang Lee’s magnificent film Ride With the Devil, which was adapted from Daniel Woodrell’s novel Woe to Live On. Alex Linder’s review of the film questioned whether liberty is consistent with civilized order. Linder felt that the film showed that feral men are the only free men.”

As far as Old West History goes, no other person or story had a more profound impact on me as a writer than Billy the Kid.

When I was fifteen years old, my parents took me on a three-week summer RV trip to New Mexico, Colorado and Utah.

While in New Mexico we spent three days touring Fort Sumner and Lincoln to include the Lincoln County Courthouse and Jail from which Billy broke out of in 1881 (the bullet hole from where he shot Deputy J.W. Bell is still in the wall).

I think the jail scene from Sam Peckinpah’s Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid (1973) nails it:

 

 

I have read over half a dozen books about Billy the Kid and his demise at the hands of Pat Garrett, his long time friend and although it is fanciful to entertain the notion that Pat allowed Billy to escape that night (as proffered in the recent western Old Henry) the historical record is clear: Billy the Kid was shot down like a dog in the middle of the night by a man he loved and trusted.

If you have not seen Old Henry yet, check it out and read my review HERE.

Civil War Myths, Parts 1 and 2

 

In a Nutshell:

The Civil War was NOT fought to end Slavery.

The war was fought by the North to keep the South from seceding and to strengthen Northern control over the Southern states. The North, or Union, was fighting against the rights of states; it was fighting to destroy the agricultural way of life of the South so as forcibly to bring about the dominance of the industrial way of life of the North.

Consequently, Secession is a Constitutional Right of EVERY State, a Safeguard of Last Resort to unhinged Federal Tyranny (See Current State of Biden’s America for proof).

 

 

 

 

 

Black Nationalist Thugs Storm Nursing Home in North Carolina

Black nationalist who led dozens to storm a retirement home in search of 87-year-old Emmett Till accuser

 

The Burn Loot and Murder Squad have moved on from burning down cities and looting Target stores to storming Retirement Homes and threatening an elderly White Woman with lynching for a case that happened 67 years ago regarding Emmett  Till.

Imagine if the tables were reversed and a group of White Nationalist did the same thing?

There would be a public outcry of Senate Inquiries and Federal Hate Crime Charges being filed!

Just another Pathetic Example of American Racial Hypocrisy and how deeply embedded Anti-White Sentiment is rooted in Modern American culture.

Historical Vault 21: Anglo-Saxon England

For all my fellow White History Buff’s out there I wanted to let you know about a WP blog called Historical Vault 21  who recently did a really superb collection of post about Anglo-Saxon England.

As White Folk, we should never feel guilty or ashamed about Celebrating our Heritage!

We owe it to the Next Generation and for all Generations that Follow!

Be PROUD of Your Roots!
