President Pence or President Clinton?

by Al Benson Jr. Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America It’s no secret that the Deep State (the Great Swamp) wants Donald Trump gone and they will do whatever they have to that such an arrangement might be formulated and moved forward.

Christmas As War

Christmas As War

by Al Benson Jr. It is an obvious fact now that, for several years, there has been a subtle (and often not-so subtle) effort underway to de-Christianize Christmas. The politically correct among us would never dare utter those forbidden words “Merry Christmas.” Utterly unthinkable! We must all be programmed to say “Happy Holidays” or “Season’s…

Obama Thinks He Should Still Be President (Hillary thinks it’s her turn now)

by Al Benson Jr. Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America King Barack I thinks he should still be president. The two term limit for the office of president should apply to all other candidates except him, even over Hillary, who would also like to be president for life–Queen Hillary I!  And so these two would-be…

Has Anyone Noticed?

Has Anyone Noticed?

by Al Benson Jr. Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America I have watched all this fuss over Roy Moore in Alabama recently. For all the allegations (and no proof yet) everyone is just supposed to walk away from Roy Moore and vote for the liberal (socialist) Democrat. If Roy Moore manages to pull…

What Is The West?

by Al Benson Jr. Folks who have followed my writing for awhile will recognize that what I write below will be a little different than much of what I usually do. I have written about the South for decades now and I love the South. I love the palmetto and palm trees, the Spanish moss,…

“Sovereign” States or Federal Satrapies?

“Sovereign” States or Federal Satrapies?

by Al Benson Jr. Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America There was an article on the Zero Hedge website back on last June 27th, written by Michael Snyder, which had originally appeared on the Economic Collapse blog. It was about how much land the federal government “owns” in our Western states. From the…

Too Many Cultures To Fit Into “One Indivisible Nation?”

Too Many Cultures To Fit Into “One Indivisible Nation?”

by Al Benson Jr. Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America Back in the 1990s I picked up a book in a used book store in Delavan, Wisconsin called The Nine Nations of North America by Joel Garreau, published way back in 1981. Mr. Garreau’s contention was that “Whatever the political maps may say, our continent…

Calhoun’s Meaning that “Slavery is a Positive Good”?

Calhoun’s Meaning that “Slavery is a Positive Good”?

John C. Calhoun–valedictorian of his class at Yale, Vice President, Secretary of War, and Senator–was one of the greatest statesmen America has produced. Margaret Coit wrote a favorable biography of him in 1950 that won a Pulitzer Prize. In 1959, a Senate committee, headed by John Kennedy, ranked him among the five greatest senators in…

The Extreme Northern Position

The Extreme Northern Position

If you listen to the modern historical profession, Southern secession in 1861 represented “treason.” David Blight, Professor History at Yale University, has made this belief the part of the core of his attack on Confederate symbols. If we should not take them down because they represent “white supremacy,” then they should be removed because Southerners…

Bigotry Against White Southerners Is ALWAYS In Season

Bigotry Against White Southerners Is ALWAYS In Season

by Al Benson Jr. Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America As most honest people realize by now, liberals, socialists, and communists are all cultural Marxists, which means, for them, that it is perfectly permissible to do unto others what they condemn others (usually unrighteously) for doing unto them. In fact, for them, it’s…

Lee, Kelly, and the Marxists

Lee, Kelly, and the Marxists

You would think that David Duke had somehow been elected president. Or, maybe in this topsy-turvy, Alice-in-Wonderland period of history we are living through, that that reactionary “bad guy” Vladimir Putin had somehow actually taken over the White House. The editorial din, the screams of outrage seemed to drown out all other news. Surely, the…

Is the South Celtic?

Is the South Celtic?

Conservatives Continue to Lose Because They Just Don’t Know the History

by Al Benson Jr. Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America Christians and other patriotic folks, even with Trump in office, continue to lose the battle for our culture because we just don’t know our history.
