Anti-South Mob Goes After Gone With the Wind

gone-with-the-wind-confederate-flag-wounded
Watch this classic before liberals ban it.

The totalitarian impulse that drives political correctness is like fire. The more it consumes, the hungrier it becomes. Attempting to appease it would be insane. It will keep burning until it is forcibly stopped, or until there is nothing left to burn.

The rebel flag having been consumed, the flames are now heading toward other iconic elements of American culture that remind people of the existence of the South — including even the classic movie Gone With the Wind:

If the Confederate flag is finally going to be consigned to museums as an ugly symbol of racism, what about the beloved film offering the most iconic glimpse of that flag in American culture?

I’m talking, of course, about “Gone with the Wind,’’ which won a then-record eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture of 1939, and still ranks as the all-time North American box-office champ with $1.6 billion worth of tickets sold here when adjusted for inflation.

True, “Gone with the Wind’’ isn’t as blatantly and virulently racist as D.W. Griffith’s “Birth of a Nation,’’ which was considered one of the greatest American movies as late as the early 1960s, but is now rarely screened, even in museums.

The more subtle racism of “Gone with the Wind’’ is in some ways more insidious, going to great lengths to enshrine the myth that the Civil War wasn’t fought over slavery — an institution the film unabashedly romanticizes.

Nothing is so innocuous that it is not subject to repression by the progressive mob if it is deemed to be out of step with their ideology.

If we don’t construct a firewall of resistance, our culture will be reduced to watching glassy eyed zombies sing praise of Obama.

The future of allowable entertainment.

    Rich is an idiot. Most Confederates weren’t fighting for slaves, most didn’t own them… couldn’t afford them. They were fighting for their economic lives, with the North pricing their exports out of competitive pricing, and creaiting all sorts of extra-constitutional laws in an effort to force the South into war. When your “conservative” talking heads are full of revisionist bunk, you know the game is over.

    Oh, I realize why he is believed. No one, these days, will do more than maybe check google. But then google also has the proof that 1 + 1 = 2. There isn’t a proof. Nor is Lowe correct about history.

    forcibly stopped, or until there is nothing left to burn.”

    Stopping these neo-Nazi assholes by force of arms is exactly what I been advocating here for years! It is the only way to do it now because there is no political party to oppose them and the appeasers have given away the store.

    One more time, you will either fight or your children will live as slaves to a totalitarian government.

    Gone With The Wind was also an anti-war movie. Americans knew that another war was brewing in Europe (And already under way in the Orient) and we wanted nothing to do with it.

    USA Today said that flag may not come down, after all.

    I’ll just bet.

    And I’ll bet it’s gotten unseasonably warm in the statehouse in Columbia as state legislators hear from their constituents.

    The attack on Southern culture is not just an attack on culture, it fits into a larger pattern, or scheme, whose purpose is to ethnically cleanse White people off the planet — in both historical and physical terms. The removal of the rebel flag or the book Gone With the Wind from public property, if viewed as isolated actions, amounts to very little. But if you start adding all the attacks on White people and White peoples’ history and culture it clearly paints a picture of a nonviolent White Genocide via gradualism.
    The process: Massive immigration from the third-world plus forced integration plus making it an official government policy to demonize white via the education system and discrimination against white people via race preference laws, plus a MSM and Hollywood that slanders, defames, and demonizes white people as a matter of course and formula, plus corporations that hire ad agencies to produce commercials that portray whites (particularly white males) as klutzes contrasted with non-whites being portrayed as wise and virtuous. The list goes on and on….. Suffice it to say the White race is being attacked … and the paradox in all this is the most vicious and effective attackers of whites happen to have white skin.
    WAKE UP WHITE PEOPLE!!!

    Thanks for the up vote, Bob. My only wish is that somehow I could acquire the writing skills at the level in which I could convince my fellow white cousins the peril they face. But sadly I don’t posese those skills. I spent my life as a construction worker. There was no need in my line of work to master the English language. Thus I am extremely handicapped at trying to convey my concerns. I rely on guys like Dave Blount to explaine to guys like me how fucked up and crazy liberals are.

    Another articulate dude is Theodore Dalrymple. He wrote:

    “In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is…in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.”


    Pretty fucking good writing, AYE?

    Leaving the fight to your children is despicable. They are not the ones running the country, it is the 1960’s throwbacks that are running it. Kicking the can down the road and hoping someone else will shoulder your responsibility is an act of pure cowardice.

    Stand and fight like a man, arm yourself, train with the weapons you have and fight for your children’s freedom.
