Draggingtree Posted June 4, 2022 Share Posted June 4, 2022 Lest We Forget Posted on May 30, 2022 by Baron Bodissey As most of you know, I joined the Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV) a while back. Given the current cultural climate here in the Nation Formerly Known as the United States of America, it’s about the most politically incorrect organization I could belong to. I suppose the Klan would be worse, but to the progressive mainstream it’s undoubtedly “Klan, Sons of Confederate Veterans — same thing.” Many years ago I wrote a poem entitled “Mason Dixon” that began with these lines: The central obsession of our federal estateis the bloody conflict that divided it.Thirteen decades later its veterans’ reunionsand widows’ pensions are no more,but the dead still rest uneasyin their ordered rows. The sleep of the Civil War dead is even more disturbed these days. If the woke brigades get their way, every last Confederate soldier will be dug up from his final resting place and — What? Burned? Thrown in the swamp? Shipped to Devil’s Island? We who are descended from Confederate veterans are expected to repudiate our ancestors. The new politically correct regime is determined to wipe their collective memory from our culture and replace it with a Snidely Whiplash version which is all about slavery and the cruel, evil slave-owners who were righteously vanquished by the virtuous Union armies. https://freenorthcarolina.blogspot.com/2022/06/lest-we-forget.html What makes this article is the comment section --open mouth insert foot Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
