Is There A Future In The South?

05 Sep

I am concerned for the future of the South.  Demographics are quickly working against us.  A lot of our fellow Southerners have bought into the propaganda of what they have learned in government schools.  Years of Yankees relocating to the South has had an effect.  Combine those issues with the uncontrolled flood of illegal aliens and it is hard to think positively. 

I want to make this very clear, I love the South with every fiber of my being, but I am concerned that we are fast approaching the point where our heritage will only exist in pockets of the South.  Is there much of a future if that is the case?  Or are we destined to be a footnote in some Mexican history book?  Our people are going to have to immediately start increasing the size of our families and waking up our friends and family members who have bought into all the propaganda we are all exposed to on a daily basis.  

Let’s not overlook our greatest ally; our Lord Jesus Christ whom we should be petitioning daily for protection and blessings for our families and states.  It is not too late yet, but we are quickly getting there.

    I’m concerned about creepy Glen Beck’s anti-South agenda. He’s an apostate, so I guess he’s capable of anything, but some of his statements are hair raising. We are being “shamed” into submission, and our Protestant brothers, God love ’em, just don’t understand–CAN’T understand, the situation or how much hangs on it, or even the priorities involved. Yes, Our Lord and His Church ARE the priorities. The South is right because and only because the Cause conforms to Him. But as a convert it still amazes me how frequently I see that link between the Confederacy and the Church. I pray for a return to Christendom—a united, dynamic Christendom like the one that produced Chivalry over a thousand years ago. Even if we lose, we are obligated to keep up the skeer right up until the end.
    Thank you so much for all your efforts for Confederate Catholics—what a politically incorrect designation!

      A lot of wisdom in your comment. You are absolutely right about Glenn Beck, he is doing a lot of damage to the South. It is my personal belief that he does it to provide cover for his other activies, but it is more than just that. At times he seems to relish attacking the South; in particular I have heard him go after Kentucky with bizarre rantings about how racist it is.

      It is exciting to see the connection the Catholic Church has with the Confederacy and I am proud that the Pope was there for President Davis while he was locked away.

      I could not find a comment section on his blog, but I did send him an email. Whether he is open minded is another matter.

    I do think the USA only has a slight chance to survive. However I do believe our beloved Southland does have all the possibilities to survive and emerge. Remember Satan and his minions what to try and put hopelessness and despair in our hearts and families. The biggest reason is we are a God loving and God fearing people. See polls and charts.

    You can see some very significant trends. The most important thing for us and our families is to stay close to God. The Liberals and Atheist are doing all they can to destroy us, but the Gates of Hell will not prevail over the followers of Jesus. There may be some very rough times but reading the prayers of Pres. J. Davis and Gen. Lee they never lost Hope or Faith in Our Lord.

      You are absolutely right and thank you for the links. Our side likes to deal with facts and faith. Their side likes to deal with self indulgence and accusation, which is why we will win in the end.

    Rebel Dad, in these troubled days, let us remember a small band of Catholics in the 8th Century who were even more oppressed than us, driven with their king into the mountains. There, they rallied to the cry “Viva Pelayo” and on 28 May 722, began the 770 year struggle to regain their land: the Reconquista! We can be like them; we do not have to end like the Byzantium on the Potomac!

      Absolutely, we will not surrender; ever. And, we will never let our heritage disappear from memory. Our struggle is not easy, but it is well worth engaging in.

    This is a very important question you ask – one of the most important ones we could possible ponder. I don’t know the answer. When I returned to the South from Europe a year ago I felt the time was ripe, that we were on the verge of radical, revolutionary change that would present us with a unique opportunity to achieve independence. Since coming back I must say that while I have found many like-minded folks and am working with some of them now, I am very dissapointed in the overall state of the South and our culture. People are less concerned about their survival as a unique culture than they are about a mosque in New York City or whether Obama was born in Hawaii or some other over-seas place. Our society is consumed with the trivial. And the supposed patriot political alternatives such as the Tea Party appear to offer nothing at all. I’ve talked with my brother about this and he agrees with me that we seem to be following the path of South Africa, only starting with a larger Occidental population. I don’t know what the magic solution is – and I fear there is none. I do know that for a people to survive though they must first want to survive.

      “I do know that for a people to survive though they must first want to survive.”

      Truer words have not been spoken. I had much the same experience as you. Between my military career and work I have spent a long time away from the South. I was shocked at how much North Carolina has changed. It doesn’t even remotely resemble what it was when I was a child.

      However, there are pockets of strong Southern sentiment in each Southern state and I feel that more people are awake today than ever in our lifetime. I think the Tea Party has done a lot of good and a lot of bad. People like Glenn Beck attack the South routinely and I read somewhere, probably your blog, about a tea party group wanting to burn Confederate Battle flags to show that they are not racist.

      The struggle for our culture begins in our homes. I am sure all of us have family members who do nothing to defend our heritage. We will win this through a lot of prayer and perseverance. Luckily, we have a lot of patriots like you and Old Rebel who defend our heritage daily.

    As a Catholic South Carolinian, I am very optimistic about the South’s prospects, and especially those of Catholicism within the South.

      It is exciting to see so many Southern Catholics leaving comments lately. I have noticed that in the South many of our bishops and dioceses have retained their conservative backbone and are unwilling to compromise our faith; unlike many of the diocese in the northeast and west coast.
