The brainwashing is accomplished in ongoing, never ceasing actions conducted by teachers in ordinary American classrooms or by ignorant,“Politically correct” leaders in organizations meeting regularly throughout America. Politicians, clergymen, journalists, professional communicator, etc., tout these arguments in order to feather their own nests. Ironically, while claiming to support the U.S. Constitution, these folks do their best to totally destroy it.
1. The Civil War was fought by the north to free the slaves and by the South to keep the slaves.
2. Southern states were so eager to fight the north to keep slaves, that they illegally seceded from the Union—which, of course, made Southerners guilty of treason.
3. The South started the war by firing on peaceful U.S. troops at Fort Sumter in a cowardly attack which completely justified the United States bloody rampage if retaliation throughout the South.
4. White Southerners have always been noted for horrific racial prejudice. Blacks were given perfect equality in the north when Mr. Lincoln was president. Southern prejudice justifies any and every attack ever made on the South in the 1800s and today.
“Not a single one of those arguments is true” (Frank Conner in The South Under Siege).
The question is if all of these arguments are lies, why do they continue? Why is it that educational institutions of so-called “higher learning,” throughout America still turn out PhDs preaching these lies? Why do even Southern cities have countless young folks exposed to and conditioned with such lies?
Frank Conner explains it all perfectly: “ Why then are these arguments so pervasive? Because he who wins a war gets to write the history books about it. In starting and then waging the “Civil War” to its gory conclusion, the U.S. government perpetrated sins of a magnitude and quantity unparalleled in American history. “[Emphasis added.]
Thereafter, the government wished desperately to hide those sins beneath a heavy coat of whitewash. Since most of the accredited historians were (and are) Northern liberals (later joined by Scalawag liberals—i.e., Southern turncoats) in full sympathy with the nationalist aims and actions of the federal government, they have cooperated willingly to supply the whitewash ever since the war.”
Conner explains that in the 1960s, history teaching in the U.S. fell entirely under “the despotic control of the Marxists (where it mostly remains today).” He tears apart every one of the north’s arguments and then crystalizes his conclusions:
The United States of America attacked and conquered the Confederate States of America for the purpose of forcing the Southern states back into the Union at bayonet point and converting them into dirt-poor agricultural colonies of the Northern capitalists. Thus a more honest name for the war is the “War of Northern Aggression.”
In waging that war to further his own political career, president Lincoln was directly responsible for the deaths of 623,000 men, the maiming of hundreds of thousands more, and the destruction and destitution of the South. And with that war he destroyed forever the unique principle upon which the United States had been founded: government with the consent of the governed. Thereafter, the United States became just another bayonet-rule country, which paid lip service to “freedom.”
At the conclusion of the Radical Republicans’ War, northerners were forced to whitewash Abe and his actions in order to conceal the horrors of their own.
Note: If you are serious about learning and spreading the real truth, rather than the “made up-pretend” historical version about the war that eliminated the U.S. Republic— If you would learn the honest to God truth about that war that Abe Lincoln illegally declared all by himself, then do yourself a favor and read Conner’s “The South Under Siege.” His is a fabulous work!
