Vietnam Veterans Set the Record Straight After PBS TV Series Whitewashes Communism

Via comment by indyjonesouthere on Socialism's Gateway Drug

 a list of names in white on a marble slab, soldiers who died or went missing in the Vietnam War.

This week, Vietnam veterans sent a letter to PBS, Ken Burns, and Bank of America setting the record straight about the Vietnam War.PBS's new documentary TV series, "The Vietnam War," produced by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick and funded by Bank of America, left out key aspects of the war, including the communist connections of North Vietnamese dictator Ho Chi Minh and the brutal repression after the war, veterans alleged.

"The whole cause of all this agony and bloodshed was the aggressive North Vietnamese invasion of the South. If it hadn't been for that, none of this ever would have happened," Lewis Sorley, a Vietnam War veteran, historian, and director at Vietnam Veterans for Factual History (VVFH), told PJ Media in an interview Wednesday. "Burns never seems to find that worth mentioning or condemning and I wonder why."

Goodies From Ol' Remus

As long as people in San Francisco can, for the most part, live the way they want to live while the people in rural North Carolina can, for the most part, live the way they want to live, it’s much easier for everyone to get along.

Identity, Affirmative Right - An unintended consequence of multicultural identity politics is that the White working-class American has been left behind and forgotten, while minorities are pandered to by the Left. Democrats like Obama and Hillary have no understanding of Middle American culture. While the bugman enjoys a comfortable urban lifestyle, life is not so easy in rural America. As the sociological disparities between Americans grow, White America will gradually begin to wake up to this knock-out game which is multiculturalism and soon more will join our ranks. When the left began playing the identity politics game, they did not anticipate White people playing identity politics back.

  SJWs, City Journal - Fifty years after launching the Free Speech Movement at UC Berkeley in the 1960s, the Left seeks to disguise its stunning reversal of position—now opposing free speech on college campuses—through Orwellian semantics. In higher education, progressives currently assert, students must be shielded from exposure to certain ideas in order to promote “inclusion” and “diversity” and to protect the vulnerable psyches of “marginalized” or “oppressed” students from “hate speech.” Once leftists achieved hegemony in academia—among students, faculty, and administrators—they exerted their power to ban speech (and speakers) deemed offensive.

 art-remus-ident-04.jpg As reported in last week's Woodpile Report, Daniel Greenfield makes a savvy observation in his essay, March For Our Lives Isn't a Youth Movement, at Sultan Knish:
After Trump won, the left retreated from controlling us through elected offices to controlling us through unelected offices. Federal judges, the FBI, the media and major corporate monopolies have been pitted against the elected officials who represent the will of the people. This is the civil war we are now in.
(Outside DC, look for '60s-style riots, bombings, assassinations and arson. Nonstop. Stay away from crowds. Prepare.)

  Escape and evasion, Art of Manliness - The old saying is true, “You can run, but you can’t hide.” When you’re dealing with seasoned, dedicated trackers, counter-measures will at best probably only give you a little extra time on the lam. Of course, you may not be pursued by expert trackers — marauding bands of baby-eating barbarians are often rank amateurs in this department. In which case the following counter-tracking measures may accomplish the goal of helping you make a clean getaway. They can be broken down into three main categories: leaving no trace, staying out of sight, and employing deception.

Civil war, Forward Observer - I sat down to write out 10 reasons why I thought the United States was headed towards a domestic conflict. I got to the fifth reason and realized I didn’t need 10 reasons. Here’s my five reasons: When Americans believe the ‘Social Contract’ is failing them, they seek to revise or leave it. As America becomes ungovernable, it will split into governable factions. As Americans move father apart politically and ideologically, they will likely favor alternatives to the ‘united’ states. Societies collapse when decisions beneficial for elites in the short term are bad for the people in the long term. Eventually, government will grow so powerful that one political party is likely to not give up power.

WATCH–#BoycottYeti Movement Explodes: Americans Shoot, Slice, Crush, Destroy Coolers

On April 21 Breitbart News reported on a NRA-ILA statement which said Yeti Coolers had cut ties with the NRA Foundation.

The statement, written by former NRA president and USF executive director Marion Hammer, said, “Suddenly, without prior notice, YETI has declined to do business with The NRA Foundation saying they no longer wish to be an NRA vendor, and refused to say why.  They will only say they will no longer sell products to The NRA Foundation.”

The response began as whisper, then morphed into a scream and quickly took the form of #BoycottYeti movement on Twitter. Now the response is characterized by videos of people shooting, slicing, or otherwise destroying Yeti Cooler products while proclaiming allegiance to the NRA.

WBTW reported that Hartsville, South Carolina, resident Bryan Atkinson loaded his Yeti Cooler with 22 pounds of Tannerite and proclaimed, “This Yeti ain’t ready.”

He said, “Yeti can’t stand behind the NRA, I ain’t standing behind Yeti no more.”

Atkinson’s called out, “Hashtag Yeti, Hashtag NRA, Hashtag AR-15,” then had his friend take the Yeti out in a middle of field and set down the cooler. Atkinson hit it with the second shot and the explosion was huge.

Sixteenth Annual Abbeville Institute Summer School: Southern Identity Through Southern Music

St Christopher Conference Center, July 15-20, 2018
Seabrook Island, South Carolina

Music has been described as “the soul of the world embedded in sound.” Southern music exemplifies the traditions and culture of its people “embedded in sound.” It sprang from the mud, the rivers, the forests, the fields, and the mountains. From the land and place, to religion, folk songs, poverty and defeat, a “new South” and and old culture, the South has a story to tell, and for most of her history, that story has been told through song.

Every form of “American” music is, in fact, Southern in origin. Blues, jazz, rock ‘n roll, country, bluegrass, gospel, and rhythm and blues all originated in the South. Most of the iconic names in American music were reared south of the Mason Dixon. Elvis, Chuck Berry, Hank Williams, Fats Domino, Leadbelly, Robert Johnson, Bill Monroe, Johnny Cash, Louis Armstrong, Charlie Daniels, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and countless others proudly called the South home and often sang about the South and its people. Even modern television singing contests like American Idol typically have Southern winners.

Join us for a thoughtful discussion of how music is a tangible reminder of the valuable and lasting contributions of the South to American culture and one of the elements that will endure. As long as her people can write the songs, the South and the Southern tradition will remain.

Socialism's Gateway Drug



We all know that the Mueller investigation has nothing to do with Russia except in name.  Rather, it has everything to do with – in Beria “Show me the man, I’ll find the crime” style – finding something, anything*, to hang on Trump to remove him from office.  There are so many articles and videos about this Ahab-level obsession now that I think it’s safe to say it’s a given to anyone right-of-center.  One particular quote both highlighting and condemning this get-Trump-at-any-cost zeal is this one from Alan Dershowitz, no hard-core righty (bolding added):

It is understandable in our hyper-partisan age that many Democrats, liberals, and leftists are so outraged at Trump that they are willing to ignore violations of his civil liberties, even if these violations establish a precedent for future use against all Americans. It is inexcusable that the ACLU should ignore these potentially blatant violations of the right of privacy under the Fourth Amendment, the right to counsel and confidentiality under the Sixth Amendment. But for the ACLU, getting Trump trumps civil liberties.

The great exodus out of America’s blue cities

Am I the only one in my spinning class at Equinox in Manhattan who’s fed up paying $200 every 
month for a gym with clean showers, $3,000 in rent every month for an apartment without cockroaches and $8 every morning for a cup of coffee? Am I the only one moving through the greater part of New York City boroughs and seeing an inexorable march of urban decay matched with the discomfort of crowding and inexplicable costs? I know I am not.

New York is the most expensive city in America. Its lower-cost neighborhoods are riddled with crime and homelessness. Its public schools, some of which are among the worst in the nation, look more like prisons than places of learning.

America’s Unsustainable Empire

 America‚Äôs Unsustainable Empire

Before President Trump trashes the Iran nuclear deal, he might consider: If he could negotiate an identical deal with Kim Jong Un, it would astonish the world and win him the Nobel Peace Prize.

For Iran has no nuclear bomb or ICBM and has never tested either. It has never enriched uranium to bomb grade. It has shipped 98 percent of its uranium out of the country. It has cameras inside and inspectors crawling all over its nuclear facilities.

And North Korea?

A Change Of Tactics, Not A Change Of Attitude.

There are many things indeed in the political realm that make me weary. One of the worst is the notion that the conditions in Gaza are the responsibility of the Israelis. Why are the Palestinians not responsible for themselves or if not them directly what not their fellow Arab and Muslim neighbors? History would tell us that this latest allegedly peaceful protest entitled the "March for Return" is not a change in attitude but rather just a temporary change in tactics.

The Gulf States both Sunni and Shia make billions and billions of dollars every year from the sale of oil. But what funds they do funnel into Gaza and the West Bank goes largely into political operations, arms purchases and the straight up corruption of those in power with very little if any actually getting down to ground level for needed infrastructure and social services. For that they are sent with their hands out to the rest of the world saying "Oh look at how poor and deprived we are. You must feed and cloth and house us."

Trump poised for major makeover of liberal 9th Circuit court

Via Billy

Alex Kozinski says battles over the accusations would not be good for judiciary.

The most liberal appeals court in America could soon be getting a Republican makeover if President Trump and Senate GOP leaders are able to fill seven open seats with conservative picks.

Standing in their way is a wall of Democrats hellbent on protecting the long-standing leftward lean of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.

The stakes are sky high because of the size, caseload and clout of the court. If Trump is successful in getting young, ideologically conservative nominees through the confirmation process, he could significantly alter the court’s DNA for decades to come.

Anti-Gun Control Parkland Survivor Kyle Kashuv Questioned By School Security For Visiting Gun Range With His Father


"Don’t get snappy with me, do you not remember what happened here a few months ago?” Yes I do, a cowardly school resource officer did nothing while a bunch of kids were murdered.
 Hear!  Hear! :)


On Friday, Parkland survivor Kyle Kashuv went to the gun range to learn to fire a gun for the first time, alongside his father.

According to Kyle, “My dad was there and I shot with an AR-15. After, I posted a few pictures and videos.”

Kashuv was quickly called out for visiting a gun range and posting about it by a variety of other students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. But that wasn’t the end of the story. When Kyle went to school today, his principal informed him that other students had been upset by his posts, but that he hadn’t done anything wrong. But according to Kyle, in the middle of the morning, events took a different turn:

It’s Time For The United States To Divorce Before Things Get Dangerous

 OK except for his comments on the Late Unpleasantness



This idea of breaking up the country may seem a bit outlandish now, but you won’t think so once real domestic unrest comes to your town.

“When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another…” — The Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776

Divorce is hard, but it’s easier than cutting the brake lines on your wife’s car. It is long past time for an amicable divorce of the United States of America. There is simply no common ground with the Left anymore. We are now the couple screaming at each other all night, every night as the kids hide in their room.
