One hundred and fifteen years ago in Memphis, the statue of Nathan Bedford Forrest was being designed. Just last year the craven Memphis City Council voted to remove it. This is all part of a concerted effort to efface the history of the South, especially the history of the Confederacy, and to destroy and defame the memory of our ancestors. More importantly the Powers that Be want to destroy the name and reputation of our heroes and to shred what is left of our heritage.
Sadly there are modern-day carpetbaggers (transplants from the North and from the far-flung parts of the planet) and Southern-born scallywags to aid The Powers and Principalities in their work.
And even more shamefully, these same scoundrels voted to exhume General Forrest’s body — and that of his wife. How far does this base desire for revenge go? How long must this go on?
The magazine cover is obviously from the magazine called The Lost Cause. Southrons have long referred to the disastrous War as The Lost Cause — yet it wasn’t lost, not yet, as long as the South maintained its spirit and its pride of heritage and ancestry, its dedication to the distinctive way of life. As long as those things endured, the cause was not lost. I remember during my childhood one often heard the phrase ‘The South will rise again’. Now such phrases probably draw the attention of our Masters who so lovingly keep track of all that we say and do, and it’s probably considered Hate Speech to utter phrases like that.
Now it seems, by all outward evidence, as our symbols and heroes and our very integrity as a people are under siege, even more so than is White America in general.
And there seem to be no political leaders or anyone else to stand in the gap, to speak up. So the title ‘Lost Cause’ seems especially mournful now, as it seems as if our foes are ready to deliver the coup de grâce Do we still have the will to endure? Are there enough of us who have not mentally and emotionally surrendered?
