Robert E. Lee and Me

A review of Robert E. Lee and Me: A Southerner’s Reckoning with the Myth of the Lost Cause (St. Martin’s Press, 2021) by Ty Seidule

A number of good historians have written reviews recently of Ty Seidule’s book, Robert E. Lee and Me, including historian Phil Leigh who produced the video, Robert E. Lee and (Woke General) Please Like Me.[1]

All of these reviews note that the tone of Robert E. Lee and Me is a desperate plea by Seidule for academia to “please PLEASE like me!” Academia is Seidule’s new home. He has gone from the United States Military Academy at West Point, to Hamilton College in Clinton, New York.[2]

Only A House Divided Within Itself Will Stand

On the Ingraham Angle recently, guest, Craig Shirley offered an opinion that should cheer the people who have read (best seller) The South Was Right.  Even those who haven’t read it but understand that the 1776 “founding” drivel of the Eric Foner socialist-mindset historical revision, is just that: drivel.

Shirley, who is the author of five books on Ronald Reagan and who campaigned as a boy for Barry Goldwater, committed seemingly the unforgivable sin of the present political caste. He dared to say that not only should there be a breakaway of the states, but, in fact, it was “what the founders intended.”

Woke Capitalism Guns for the South

Major League Baseball on 2 April announced that both the All Star Game and the draft would no longer be held in Atlanta as retribution for Georgia’s recent election laws. “I have decided that the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport is by relocating this year’s All-Star Game and MLB Draft,” explained MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred. The MLB is not alone in expressing their displeasure with Georgia: chief executives and other high-ranking leaders from more than 100 companies, including Coca-Cola, Delta, Target, Snapchat and Uber, have also declared their opposition to the Peach State’s new legislation.

The Battle of Fort Sumter by DuBose Heyward — Part Two, Conclusion

[Publisher's Note, by Gene Kizer, Jr. : DuBose Heyward is best known for his 1925 novel, Porgy, which eventually became the famous George Gershwin opera, Porgy and Bess.

Heyward wrote Peter Ashley, and Herbert Ravenel Sass wrote Look Back to Glory, and both of those works were adapted for the shorter Fort Sumter, 1861-1865, from which this blog article comes. Citation: DuBose Heyward, Herbert Ravenel Sass, Fort Sumter, 1861-1865 (New York: Farrar & Rinehart, Inc., 1932).

Here is Part Two, the exciting conclusion of The Battle of Fort Sumter by DuBose Heyward!]

Biden ATF Nominee David Chipman Spread Blue Anon Conspiracy Theories About Waco

Flashback: Vice President Joe Biden: No improper motive by feds at Waco, the Davidians "committed suicide"

David Chipman, His Fraudulency Joe Biden’s nominee to head the ATF, has spread wild-eyed, Blue Anon conspiracy theories about the 1993 Waco siege.

During a Reddit AMA (ask me anything) last year, Chipman, a former ATF special agent and current senior policy adviser at [Gabrielle] Giffords Courage to Fight Gun Violence organization, told this outrageous and provable lie:

At Waco, cult members used 2 .50 caliber Barretts to shoot down two Texas Air National Guard helicopters. Point, it is true we are fortunate they are not used in crime more often. The victims of drug lords in Mexico are not so lucky. America plays a role in fueling the violence south of the border.

That is some first-class, Blue Anon bullshit right there.

General Flynn Begins Endorsing America First Candidates, Starts With Gun Toting Amanda Chase for Virginia Governor

 General Flynn Begins Endorsing America First Candidates, Starts With Gun Toting Amanda Chase for Virginia Governor

Army Vet, Former Trump Official says Chase is the One to Take on Radical Left, Socialist Agenda

General Michael Flynn has announced his endorsement of Amanda Chase for Virginia Governor, throwing his support behind the America First conservative firebrand in a Parler post highlighting Chase’s fight against the radical left and their socialist agenda.

In a race chocked full of career politicians and establishment-backed candidates on both sides, Chase, a gun-toting State Senator often described as Virginia’s “Trump in Heels,” represents the grassroots, America First wing of the Republican base, and General Flynn let it be known in his “wholehearted” endorsement.
