The rise of the New ConfederacyBy , E-mail the writer
The rebels launched a grisly war against the Union. In his inaugural address, Lincoln warned the Confederacy: “You have no oath registered in Heaven to destroy the government, while I shall have the most solemn one to preserve, protect and defend it.”
“Peace and safety” are ideals drawn from South Carolina’s Dec. 24, 1860, declaration of secession from the Union. The expression was designed to encompass all that the Deep South states held dear — chiefly, their existence as sovereign states and their ability to decide the propriety of their domestic institutions, including slavery.
This virulent hostility to the Union led the Old Confederacy to conclude — as expressed by South Carolina — that with Lincoln’s elevation to the presidency, “the slaveholding States will no longer have the power of self-government, or self-protection, and the Federal Government will have become their enemy.”
Federal government as the enemy.

Welcome to today, apparently this individual believes that we are not to be fed up with the central governments crap, that we should stand by while Obama wages a non-declared civil war, not just against the South, but the US entire!!
Do not listen to this man and his slander, he is attempting to underpin the Obama dictatorship by reminding everyone that if you are white you are racist.
For me? he has paid me the biggest compliment he could say. We now have a Name for our new grass roots groundswell of anti-Obama sentiment. As I have already stated, the Confederate Battle Flag is my banner, and thanks to Mr. King we have a name.
The New Confederacy! Sounds kind of sexy doesn't it? Interesting how Mr. King thought he was spewing hate (towards the wrong group by the way, we are not the Tea Party) and all he did was (in my mind) pay me the greatest compliment ever and give our movement a great title.
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WELCOME TO THE NEW CONFEDERACY! TAKE UP YOUR BATTLE FLAGS AND STAND AGAINST THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT!
IT'S NOW TIME FOR GOOD MEN TO DO SOMETHING, LEST WE WAKE UP TOMORROW IN BLOOD AND AGONY UNDER THE JACKBOOT OF THE GOVERNMENT THUGS.
