Spitting on Confederates

Spitting on Confederates

For 130 years, this monument stood in Richmond, Virginia.

This is Confederate General Ambrose Powell Hill, one of Stonewall Jackson’s ablest divisional commanders. The general was buried beneath the monument.

Last December, as part of its campaign to wipe out every trace of the Confederacy, the Richmond city government tore down the monument, dug up the general, and expelled him from the Capital of the Confederacy.

Hill’s outraged descendants had no choice but to rebury their ancestor, which they did last weekend, in Culpepper, Virginia.

The family worried that the bigots who screamed obscenities as the general came down might contaminate the reburial, so they publicized it only by word of mouth. I was worried attendance would be sparse, but there must have been at least 400 people. This is a very partial view.

You can see the coffin in the foreground, ladies dressed in period-costume morning, and reenactors behind them. The guard fired repeated volleys.

I shook hands with John Hill, a descendant, who was dressed in a replica of the battle shirt his ancestor wore.

I also laid my hand on the coffin of a Confederate general, something I am never likely to do again.

The Confederate Mechanized Cavalry was there. They are members of the Sons of Confederate Veterans who ride motorcycles. There must have been at least 20 of them.

And, of course, we sang Dixie.

It was moving to watch the reenactors march away from the gravesite. The tramping of their boots sounded as authentic as their uniforms and rifles.

The reinterment was an impressive display of forbidden loyalty. I wonder how many more might have paid their respects to the general if the family had felt it could publicize the ceremony.

As a rule, the intensity of historical grievances fades over time. Japan and the United States are friends, despite Pearl Harbor and a terrible war in the Pacific.

Vietnam and the United States are friends, despite a more recent war that many Americans, even at the time, thought was a cruel, disastrous mistake.

And yet, hatred for the South only grows. If we treated Japan the way we treat the Confederacy, there would be no trade. No Japanese would get visas. America would be so hostile to Japanese-Americans that most of them would leave. Watching anime would be treason. Long ago we would have chopped down the Washington cherry trees that Japan gave us in 1912.

And even if Japan never took any counter-measures — just like the Confederacy, which never fights back — the hatred and sanctions would get worse every year.

What happened with the Confederates? The very men they were trying to kill — Union soldiers — respected and honored them. One of the Yankees who fought under General Edward Ord was at Appomattox for Lee’s surrender, which meant the Union had won.

He watched the men in grey stack arms for the last time and expected to be filled with joy.

Instead, he wrote: “I remember how we sat there and pitied and sympathized with these courageous Southern men who had fought for four long and dreary years all so stubbornly, so bravely and so well, and now, whipped, beaten, completely used up, were fully at our mercy — it was pitiful, sad, hard, and seemed to us altogether too bad.”

Stonewall Jackson was hit by friendly fire at the battle of Chancellorsville in 1863 and died in this house.

Outside, there is a small display that records the words of Union General Gouverneur Warren: “I rejoice at Stonewall Jackson’s death as a gain to our cause, yet in my soldier’s heart I cannot but see him the best soldier of all this war, and grieve his untimely end.”

Foreigners admired the Confederates. On the grounds of the Virginia State Capitol, there still stands a statue of Jackson.

The pedestal says: “Presented by English gentlemen as a tribute of admiration for the Soldier and Patriot Thomas J. Jackson.”

Englishmen had no political stake in the war or why it was fought. Britain abolished slavery 30 years before the United States did. These men just wanted to honor a soldier and patriot. When the statue arrived in Richmond from England in 1872, a team of 300 men pulled it to the square where it now stands. According to the papers, “‘not a few ex-Union officers and soldiers’ joined Confederate veterans in pulling the statue.”

During the first half of the 20th century, the US Army named 10 military bases for Confederate generals, including A.P. Hill.

There is Fort Beauregard, Fort Hood, Fort Lee, and Fort Pickett. This was a gesture of reconciliation and generosity to the South, to honor its great fighting men. There are still Navy ships named after Confederate victories, such as this cruiser, the Chancellorsville, and landing craft named Malvern Hill, Harpers Ferry, and Mechanicsville.

The M5A1 tank was named for Jeb Stuart.

This M-3 tank was called the Robert E. Lee.

There was a variant of the M-3, called the Grant, for the Union general, shown shoulder to shoulder on the left.

There is a 1936 postage stamp honoring Lee and Jackson.

This stamp from 1970 is of Jefferson Davis, Lee, and Jackson on the huge rock carving at Stone Mountain.

Here’s General Lee all by himself on a 1955 stamp from what was called the “liberty series.”

Dwight Eisenhower was a Kansas boy, but when he was president, he hung a portrait of Lee in the Oval Office.

He explained why: “General Robert E. Lee was, in my estimation, one of the supremely gifted men produced by our Nation. . . . Taken altogether, he was noble as a leader and as a man, and unsullied as I read the pages of our history.”

The Congressional Gold Medal is the highest honor the Congress can award.

In 1956, it was awarded collectively to all surviving veterans of the Civil War, north and south. The obverse says “Honor to Great Soldiers and to Great Americans,” and depicts both Grant and Lee. And note Confederate insignia on the reverse.

Did those Congressmen vote to award that medal because they hated black people? Or wanted to bring back slavery? Of course not. They wanted to honor the courage and sacrifice of men who fought for their country.

It’s been a strange career for Confederates. During the war, they were courageous, honorable opponents. A hundred years later, they were “great soldiers and great Americans.” Today, they are scum.

What happened?

What happened was a wrenching redirection of every American social policy to make it cater to the failures, feelings, grievances, and demands of blacks. This is a form of collective insanity. It’s the insanity of considering it immoral ever to point out that blacks have an average IQ 15 points lower than the white average, much less to argue that that difference explains an awful lot.

It’s the insanity of decriminalizing crimes only because blacks — and sometimes Hispanics — commit them so often, whether it’s turnstile jumping, public defecation, shoplifting, disturbing the peace, or even resisting arrest.

It’s insanity that leads to headlines like “San Francisco reparations committee proposes a $5 million payment to each Black resident.”

Blacks, with a straight face, are asking for 41 times the median net worth of the American family. They demand compensation for harm they never suffered to be paid by people who never hurt them. And the city takes this seriously.

Only insanity explains this: “Astrophysics professor warns astronomy ‘steeped in systemic racism.”

It is insanity when a Vanderbilt professor says, “Math is a white, cisheteropatriarchal space.”

It is insanity when colleges stop requiring the SAT or ACT only because blacks and Hispanics get low scores.

This website lists 1,800 schools, including Harvard, Yale, and Stanford that ditched the requirement.

More insanity: “California Schools Named After Washington and Jefferson Hit Renaming Buzzsaw.”

Not even the father of his country deserves an elementary school named in his honor.

It was insanity to destroy or remove 30 monuments to Christopher Columbus during the BLM riots.

What’s Columbus got to do with black degeneracy or murder rates?

It’s insanity to remove Robert E. Lee as a representative of Virginia in the Capitol Rotunda and replace him with Barbara Johns, whose highest achievement in life was to become an elementary-school librarian.

Now the two greatest Virginians, memorialized in the Capitol are George Washington and a black woman no one ever heard of.

There is the quiet, insidious, ubiquitous insanity of a long Wall Street Journal article called “Juvenile Crime Surges,” that scrupulously fails to mention that this is overwhelmingly a black problem.

It’s insanity when “Elite K-8 school teaches white students they’re born racist.”

There’s been the decades-long insanity of passing the Civil Rights Act of 1965 to forbid racial discrimination — and then using the very same law to discriminate against whites and Asians.

There is video after video of black misbehavior of a kind almost never seen among whites, but insanity requires that we believe that it’s somehow the fault of white people. [1:18 – 1:30] The Confederacy is just another casualty. Does anyone believe that walking by a Confederate monument made the blacks we just saw behave that way?

Do monuments make them shoot each other or get low test scores? Does spitting on the Confederacy help blacks — or does it just feed their crazed delusion that nothing is ever their fault?

Of course, the greatest casualty of this insanity is free speech. Facts refuse to conform to egalitarian edicts, and anyone who talks about them is a villain who must be silenced and destroyed.

It was a different country that could call Confederates and Union men alike “great soldiers and great Americans.” Today, it’s hard to believe there ever was such a country, isn’t it? That was a country worth having. What our rulers are building for us today is not. And there won’t be a country worth having until Confederates can once more take their place among those whom Englishmen once called “soldiers and patriots.”

The Unappointed Gatekeepers of History

A Tactical Hermit Original Essay



“Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.”

George Orwell, 1984

After the removal of the last Confederate statue in Richmond, Virginia I was reminded of a conversation I had back in 2015 with a mentor and family friend who was a retired, tenured PhD History professor from a very prestigious University here in the South and also happened to be a member of the Son’s and Daughters of the Confederacy.

When all this Confederate statue removal non-sense started in earnest after the Dylann Roof shooting he sent me this email which I have paraphrased:

“What happened in Charleston was a damn tragedy, but do you see how THEY (the blacks along with their cucked white politicians on both sides of the aisle) are now using Victimhood to empower their position both culturally and politically? They are using white guilt as a mass weapon of destruction to become the unappointed gatekeepers of history! And why are they doing that? So thru the practice of Damnatio Memoriae, they can shape the future according to their OWN cultural agenda! Remember Orwell’s quote about Controlling the past to Control the future? We are seeing it unfold in real time my friend.”

I have tell you reading this seven years later is still jaw dropping. Remember that in 2015 BLM, ANTIFA and the purple-haired, bathroom confused communist woke brigade were still relatively unknown to the public and media.

So how is it that a good portion of normie America has been so easily duped and hijacked by these so-called “victims?” Well, the short answer is that historically victimhood can always be counted upon to garner both sympathy and guilt from good ole’ “Whitey Americanus.” Sympathy and Guilt if wielded tactfully, can yield huge political, cultural and financial results in the form of welfare subsidies, grants and even attempted Slave Reparations. It’s shameless opportunism on a national scale.

Don’t forget ZOG media’s complicity in this pitiful charade. Without them they would not have been able to capitalize and in turn polarize events like Charlottesville, Freddy Gray and George Floyd and in turn spread divisive propaganda messaging that would have made Lenin and Trotsky smile with pride. Remember all the “Don’t Shoot”, “I Can’t Breathe” and those nauseating kneeling for forgiveness campaigns all over social media?



So it seems after a good dose of cultural marxism, corruption and flagrant disregard for the Constitution, these people and their liberal white underwriters (both in the private sector and Government) have been placed (without our consent) in a position to be American History’s caretakers. To decide as it were what is “real” American history and what is “racist” and “hateful.” It began with removing statues, memorials and renaming streets and has ultimately culminated into the NY Times 1619 Project, the fourth estate and liberal academia’s opus to flagrant lies, hypocrisy and white guilt.

If it is not obvious by now, let me be clear: The black marxist and neo-liberal globalist agenda combined is to completely DESTROY White America. Not just Southern White America and it’s history as some have proffered. It all lines up with Globalism and The Great Reset, to include de-population (especially of whites) multiculturalism and diversity (which dovetails into The Ecumenical movement of having all cultures, religions and races fold into one big Global family.) Climate Communism is just another facet of this, helping to expedite the de-population element with eventual starvation of millions by doing away with commercial farming and promoting weird alternatives such as synthetic meat products and bugs.


So knowing that I despise articles and essays that expose a problem but never offer any viable solutions, here is my two cents. First, White men need to marry and procreate with white women and have beautiful white babies. We need to discourage and dissuade interracial relationships and marriages across the board. Secondly, we need to STRENGHTEN the White Family as a whole. The Family is the building block of society, without it nothing else works. Wholesome, traditional Christian values need to return to the family and everything and anything involving neo-liberalism needs to be wholly discarded. Lastly, CRT (Critical Race Theory) needs to be eradicated from our vocabulary and REAL White history needs to be taught to our children to include stories of our proud European origins.


In doing these three things, we will at least begin to rebel and counter the satanic Globalist agenda and give ourselves and our offspring the best chance at long term survival. I know it is popular to talk about whites having their own country and nation but honestly, if we (White Folk) cannot populate and build when the chips are down and the tide is against us, what makes us think we deserve our own nation?

The hypocrisy is nauseating.

A bunch of camel rapist cowards want to preach to us about our history?

All this on the heels of a Pakastani terrorist who storms a synagogue in Texas and takes hostages?

Only due to misguided immigration laws are Muslims even in our country.

Now they demand we renounce our history?

Never forget that some of our earliest battles were to stop white slavery via the Barbary pirates.
