Re: “Those who compare Confederate soldiers to Hitler should look at Lincoln

Ideologically, Southern leaders such as Davis and Stephens were closer to Hitler than Lincoln was. They were explicitly white supremacist and could be considered proto-fascist.
However, in terms of government structure, the centralizing Northern government would be closer to proto-fascism.

Re: “Those who compare Confederate soldiers to Hitler should look at Lincoln

Folks argue over who was right or who was wrong in the past, because those declarations of right or wrong are often the basis of defining what is right or wrong in the present.

Canyon de Chelly, Bear River, Sand Creek, Whitestone Mt, Mankato, Devil's Punchbowl, Union General Paine in Ky, and Union General Banks in NOLA, are the model for Sobibor, Dachau, Auschwitz-Birkenau, Dachau, and Belzec. Nazis copied Yerkes Eugenics program modeled on Stanton's War measures. There is very clear and direct connection from Union War aims and Nazi goals.

Re: “The demise of 96 Wave

My best concert memory in this country is 96 wave fest. Best city in this city Charleston SC. Best show and best acts. The last one I attended was on the water next to the soccer stadium for the battery, 2003 I think. Best memories of a 48 year life. Sad that the next generation is unable to experience how great a 96 wave fest was. Thank you Charleston SC the only place I can call home even living though I live 500 miles away. Home is in your heart.

Re: “The invisible damage done by Charleston's smoking ban

I was told I had emphysema in 1987 when I was 45 years old. I smoked for 30 years, but quit smoking as soon as I was told that I had COPD. Quitting smoking was the hardest thing I ever did. But I knew I would die if I didn't. My health was getting so bad that I needed oxygen 24/7 and was down to 92lbs. Thankfully, in 1999 I got lung volume reduction surgery. It saved my life. I no longer needed oxygen and was able to climb stairs, dance, and travel the world. That good fortune lasted for almost 13 years. I am now back on oxygen 24/7 and can't climb stairs, dance or travel the world. i searched for alternative treatment Online i was introduced to Health herbal clinic by a friend here in the United states she told me they have successful herbal treatment to Emphysema and other lungs diseases. I spoke to few people who used the treatment here in USA and they all gave a positive response, so i immediately purchased the COPD herbal formula and commenced usage, its totally unexplainable how all the symptoms totally dissapeared, my cough was gone and i no longer experience shortness of breath(dyspnea), contact this herbal clinic via their email Info@ healthherbalclinic. net Or website www. healthherbalclinic. net Herbs are truely gift from God

Re: “Those who compare Confederate soldiers to Hitler should look at Lincoln

It is right that every potus pays respects..unlike the union officer who commandeered Robert E. Lee's home at Arlington..and ordered his troops to bury the dead "right next to the house" so Lee could never return. It's stolen land.
I know it was a shock when Sherman marched into Georgia and found all those slaves tied up on farmhouse porches with explicit instructions to not leave until the war decided their fate.

Re: “Those who compare Confederate soldiers to Hitler should look at Lincoln

So happy to see the TRUTH being posted!! With what's happening in NOLA with this attack on Confederate monuments, etc, this article has made my day. We Southerners, above ANYONE ELSE, should know the truth about our history. It is disgraceful that Southern towns are cowering to the lies surrounding Confederate history and trying to destroy these things. That is UNACCEPTABLE. They should absolutely be ashamed. Thank you for this wonderful article.

Re: “Those who compare Confederate soldiers to Hitler should look at Lincoln

Glad to see the truth being told. All these people yell about the Confederate Flag and slavery. Do they know slavery was only under the Confederate Flag for 4 yrs but had been under the American flag for over a hundred years? How about the Irish that the North had as slaves and treated poorly? I never heard anything told about them. I hate to see all this happening to degrade my ancestors sometimes I think it's time to start a big push back and if we have to lose all our history in the south them Civil Rights and MLK should come out of history too.

Re: “The invisible damage done by Charleston's smoking ban

My husband was diagnosed several years ago with emphysema. He was able to quit smoking and we stayed on top of any illness. He has been hospitalized with pneumonia every year. His breathing has been getting worse but oxygen levels stay in the 97 to 98 range except when he's in hospital. For a year now he has been passing out. It is only for 1 to 3 minutes and was only when he would start coughing. The doctor changed his medications around but he passes out when breathing a bit hard. Also his feet swell up and are numb all the time. He then started using a cane. i searched for alternative treatment before i was introduced to Health herbal clinic by a friend here in the United states she told me they have successful herbal treatment to Emphysema and other lungs diseases. I spoke to few people who used the treatment here in USA and they all gave a positive response, so i immediately purchased the Emphysema herbal formula for my husband and he commenced usage, its totally unexplainable how all the symptoms totally dissapeared, his cough was gone and he no longer experience shortness of breath(dyspnea), contact this herbal clinic via their email healthherbalclinic@gmail.com Or website www.healthherbalclinic.weebly.com.

Re: “Bilderberg conspiracies have become a handicap for the Liberty Movement

Good news to everyone reading this comment. I want to share my testimony on
how i belong to the world famous illuminate fraternity society, and how i
have become more famous, by acquiring huge wealth, riches and fame. Here is
how my life changed. A friend of mine that was always giving me money,
because he was very rich, wealthy, famous and successful. On one beautiful
day, he said to me that he is not going to give me any money, that he is
going to show me the way to be successful in life. So i was very happy, i
never knew he was a member of the great illuminate society. So i was
initiated to the world famous illuminate society, and few days later, i was
awarded a contract worth millions of Dollars. Right now as i speak, in my
business i am doing very well, i travel the world on business deals, i am
now the one that gives money out to people, before life was so hard for me
and my family. If you want to belong to us today? Send us an email now>

Re: “The invisible damage done by Charleston's smoking ban

For the past few years I have had difficulty working out in yard, then in 2015 it got harder and harder to breathe. After many tests, it was a CT scan that showed COPD, emphysema and scarring in my lungs. I quit smoking 8 years ago but the damage has been done. I got to a point I couldn't catch my breath and was coughing so hard I thought the top of my head would blow off, nothing was really working to help my condition. Finally i started on COPD herbal formula i purchased from NewLife Herbal Clinic, i read alot of positive reviews from other patients who used the COPD herbal treatment. I used the herbal remedy for 7 weeks, its effects on COPD is amazing, all my symptoms gradually faded away, i breath very more freely now! (Visit www. newlifeherbalclinic. com ) I recommend this COPD herbal formula for all COPD/Emphysema sufferers

Re: “Those who compare Confederate soldiers to Hitler should look at Lincoln

Texas retained it's right to sovereignty, which is why it is the only state flag that can be flown at the same height as the US flag.
And the Corwin Amendment was passed by the 36th Congress and ratified by 6 states, not enough to make it law. However, it STILL sits on the books and can be ratified if states choose. Case in point, MD just rescinded it's ratification in 2014. Texas also reconsidered ratification in 1963.
So...Congress needs to remove it from ever possibly being ratified. Think about that.

Re: “Those who compare Confederate soldiers to Hitler should look at Lincoln

Thank you for trying to educate and inform people with some facts and truth and while it is true that SC cited the failure of the federal government to enforce the fugitive slave act in its secession document, North Carolina, Virginia and the Cherokee nation did not. The causes of secession and the war are numerous and complex and not as simple as people are told to believe they are and that the ludicrous and ignorant comparisons to the Confederacy and the Nazis and the swastika to the battle Flag are little more than thinly veiled efforts to make anyone tht feels pride, honour or in fact anything positive about the Confederacy automatically as a Nazi, racist and something to be ashamed off.

Re: “Denmark Vesey Was a Terrorist

Reconstruction wasn't punishment enough?
U need to read a book. Theft of life, property, liberty, food, monies, etc. is not punishment enough.
Why do you think people in the South rose up and said ENOUGH.
If it had been done like Lincoln wanted it to be done that would not have happened.

Re: “Denmark Vesey Was a Terrorist

This is a consistent piece for the most part, and it's even kind of nuanced for an article that basically just applies a ten word definition to a few different cases.But yes, I think plenty of "anybody's" may disagree with the death penalty for conspiracy--maybe planning or doing are morally equivalent (although this is far from certain, particularly since we cannot know what he would have actually done) but legally there is generally a difference, and hanging may have gone a bit far. Truman may have deserved hanging more than Vesey, if you look at what the two actually did.
