In honor of Confederate History Month, today we present an educational article about terrible liberal bias that appears in the way modern politicians and educators talk about the Confederacy and Civil War.
Ray McBerry is a perfect example of how creeping liberalism has created a deliberate distortion of the true nature and philosophy of the Confederacy.
Ray McBerry, a vocal advocate of Confederate History Month, said in an interview with The Daily Beast that the Civil War was not really about slavery:
“It was about a federal government that was out of control and imposing its will on the states—a federal government that was acting beyond the scope of the Constitution. Ironically, some of the very issues we are debating today.”
This is something that we hear all the time: the Civil War was about States’ Rights. The Confederacy loved the Constitution and it was the north that was violating it.
THIS IS A LIBERAL DECEPTION AND A LIE!
It’s pretty clear what is going on here: conservatives have been bullied into being afraid of being called “racist” by liberals. Conservatives are therefore trying to distort and lie and whitewash the truth about the Confederacy in order to make it more “acceptable” to liberals.
What is the truth about the Confederacy?
We will let the words of the Vice President of the Confederacy, Alexander H. Stephens, in his 1861 Cornerstone Speech, speak for themselves:
That is the true philosophy of the Confederacy.
Do not let these modern apologists try to lie to you and say anything different, just because the liberals have scared them with the “R” word (“racist”).
Why you scared of your conservative Southern heritage, Ray?
Stand up and own it.
Running from the real meaning of the Confederacy, after all, could be seen as just another form of liberal bias!!!
