SOUTH WAS RIGHT
MORE YANKEE CRIMES
By: Alan Stang
Because you are an Etherzone reader, you are too smart to be tricked two weeks in a
row, so this week I shall play it straight. Lets just browse through The South
Was Right (Gretna, Louisiana, Pelican, 2000), by James Ronald Kennedy and Walter
Donald Kennedy. For instance, remember Yankee General U.S. Grant? At the beginning of the
war, his wife owned slaves. At the end of the war, she still owned slaves.
Her slaves were freed only after the war by the Thirteenth Amendment, not by
Lincolns utterly phony Emancipation Proclamation. Grant explained, "Good help
is so hard to come by these days." Of course Grant was a notorious drunk; maybe he
was drunk when he said it. As President, he ran a crooked show. Maybe he was still drunk.
Did you know that about 6% - six per cent 6% of Southern whites in 1860 owned
slaves? Lets see, would that not mean that 94% - ninety four per cent 94% did
not? Among the did notters was the immortal General Robert E. Lee. Other Southern leaders
who did not own slaves were Generals Joseph Johnston, A.P. Hill, Fitzhugh Lee and J.E.B.
"I will say, then, that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of
bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races
that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of making voters or jurors of Negroes,
nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say
in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races.
. . . I, as much as any other man, am in favor of having the superior position assigned to
the white race."
Who said that? Strom Thurmond? Adolf Hitler? No, the author of the statement was
Abraham Lincoln, in an 1858 debate. Does that mean Lincoln was a Nazi skinhead? No,
Lincoln was a Communist. Lincoln was our first Communist President.
Yankee Colonel John B. Turchin pillaged Athens, Alabama. In his presence or with his
knowledge, his men "attempted an indecent outrage on a servant girl, destroyed a
stock of fine Bibles, went to the plantation and quartered in the Negro huts for weeks,
debauching the females, committed rape on the person of a colored girl." They caused
the miscarriage and death of a Mrs. Hollingsworth.
The truncated quotation above comes from the court-martial of Turchin, which also found
that such outrages were perpetrated wherever Turchin went. Yes, this monster was even too
foul for the Yankees. Notice that most of his victims in Athens were black. Indeed, Yankee
soldiers ravished black women throughout the South. General Don Carlos Buell published the
findings of the court-martial on August 6, 1862.
The matter went to Lincoln. What would you imagine that Communist monster did about
this criminal who had been found guilty as charged? On August 5, 1862, after Turchin was
convicted, the day before General Buell published the findings, Lincoln promoted Turchin
to Brigadier General, in which capacity he served another two years.
The real reason for the war was not slavery but the tariff. Asked why the North did not
just let the South go, Communist monster Lincoln exclaimed, "Let the South go? Let
the South go! Where then shall we get our revenues!" The New York Times ran
many stories to the effect that Yankee commerce would be lost to New Orleans because of
the low Southern tariff.
The New York Evening Post said this: ". . . Allow railroad iron to be
entered at Savannah with the low duty of ten per cent, which is all that the Southern
Confederacy think of laying on imported goods, and not an ounce more would be imported at
New York; the railways would be supplied from the southern ports."
In other words, rather than compete, the Yankees elected to invade. As in an Al Jolson
blackface routine, they belatedly chose slavery to becloud the utter criminality of their
motives. To protect their profits they killed 600,000 men and innumerable civilians. They
destroyed our federal system and gave all power to Washington, a danger the Founding
Fathers feared most.
In 1807, New Jersey barred blacks from voting. In 1814, Connecticut did so. In 1822,
Rhode Island did so. In 1838, Pennsylvania did so. In 1867, while Congress was forcing the
South to accept unqualified suffrage, Ohio rejected a proposed law that would have allowed
blacks there to vote. In New York City, Yankees kidnapped free blacks and sold them into
slavery. There were 33 such cases in one year alone.
On April 2, 1862, Member of Congress John Sherman, brother of serial killer General
W.T. Sherman, said this: "We do not like the negroes. We do not disguise our dislike.
As my friend from Indiana said yesterday: The whole people of the Northwestern
States are opposed to having many negroes among them. . . ."
Slavery was a permanent institution among African blacks long before the first white
man ever set foot on that continent. Long before the English (our permanent enemy) and the
Yankees got into it, the Arabs created the international slave trade. According to the
1830 census, free blacks in this country owned more than 10,000 slaves.
In Sumter, South Carolina, in 1860, William Ellison, a free black, owned 70 slaves who
worked his plantation. In St. Landry Parish, Louisiana, Auguste Donatto also owned 70
slaves. He needed that many to work his 500-acre plantation. Even in New York City, eight
free blacks owned seventeen slaves in 1830.
Did you know that while the Yankees still owned and traded slaves, Virginia made it
illegal to import them? The law was enacted on October 5, 1778, when Patrick Henry was
governor. It stipulated that any slave brought into the state would be free. Even before
that, the Virginia House of Burgesses had many times tried to stop the slave trade, but
was overruled by the royal governor. Later, Yankee commercial interests participated in
protecting the "infernal traffick."
According to President John Adams, slavery in the North was abandoned only because
white Yankee workers refused to compete with blacks. ". . . The common people would
not suffer the labor, by which alone they could obtain a subsistence, to be done by
blacks. If the gentlemen had been permitted by law to hold slaves, the common white people
would have put the slaves to death, and their masters too perhaps."
Did you know that thousands of blacks fought for the South in Confederate uniforms? Why
have we never seen this in a movie? More than 3,000 black Confederates under the immortal
Stonewall Jackson occupied Frederick, Maryland in 1862. According to Yankee Dr. Lewis
Steiner, chief inspector of the U.S. Army Sanitary Commission, "Most of the Negroes
had arms, rifles, muskets, sabers, bowie-knives, dirks, etc. . . . and were manifestly an
integral portion of the Southern Confederacy Army."
Captain Arthur L. Fremantle was an English observer attached to Lees army. In
1863, in Gettysburg, he saw a black soldier in charge of white Yankee prisoners. Fremantle
wrote this: "This little episode of a Southern slave leading a white Yankee soldier
through a Northern village, alone and of his own accord, would not have been gratifying to
an abolitionist. . . . Nor would the sympathizers both in England and in the North feel
encouraged if they could hear the language of detestation and contempt with which the
numerous Negroes with Southern armies speak of their liberators."
Along these lines, what did Southern slaves say themselves? In the late 1930s,
Washington sent WPA (Works Projects Administration) journalists to collect first-hand
testimony from ex-slaves who were still alive. That testimony is maintained in the
National Archives and is known as the "Narratives."
No pretense is made here that all slaves felt as did the ones quoted below. Some may
have strenuously disagreed. We also do not recommend that slavery be revived. (We are
slaves of the federal government right now.) But the Kennedys report that "a vast
majority (more than seventy percent) of ex-slaves had only good experiences to report
about life as a slave and about the Old South."
Simon Phillips, of Alabama, says this: "People has the wrong idea of slave days.
We was treated good. My Massa never laid a hand on me the whole time I was wid him. . .
.Sometime we loaned the massa money when he was hard pushed." (N.B. This is exactly
the way the federal government recorded these statements in dialect.)
Mary Rice, also of Alabama: ". . . Once when I was awful sick, Mistis May
Jane had me brung in de Big House and put me in a room dat sot on de other side of
the kitchen so she could take kere of me herself..."
Elija Henry Hopkins, Little Rock: "I was fed just like I was one of the
masters children. They even done put me to bed with them. You see, this
discrimination on color wasnt as bad then as it is now. . . . In slavery times, a
poor white man was worse off than a nigger."
Jane Georgiana, Alabama: "Ole Marster dead an gone an Ole Mistis too,
but I members em jus lak dey was, when dey looked atter us whenst we
belonged to em or dey belong to us, I dunno which it was."
Hannah Irwin, Alabama: ". . . An as for dey a-settin me free! Miss, us
niggers on de Bennett place wuz free as soon as we wuz bawn. I always been free!"
At the very least, we have established that everything the Yankee monsters have told us
is a lie. We need to know that, because only if we know the past can we influence the
future. The Yankees understand that. Look at the enormous effort they have made to conceal
it. Fellow Southerners, black and white! The "Lost Cause" of Southern liberty is
not lost. The war goes on. As long as the principle of national independence survives, it
