Confederate Flag, Fucking, and Money: Al Letson @Al_Letson It's much easier to say the Civil War was about money, when your ancestors weren't the currency Jenna Abrams @Jenn_Abrams To those people, who hate the Confederate flag. Did you know that the flag and the war wasn't about slavery, it was all about money 4/24/17, 1:39 PM lordandgodoftheobvious: snommelp: argentarachnids: reverseracism: Exactly. When I was learning about The United States Civil War during my K-12 years I always found it odd that there were “arguments” that the battle was really about money/currency. Because lets be honest, HOW were they making that money? Through CHATTEL ENSLAVEMENT. Seriously I hate how white people keep skirting the issue like this. “It was about state rights” Started over the right to own slaves. To all of my fellow white people living in the South - it is our duty to keep the record straight on this. The racists who pull this revisionism won’t listen to people of color who try to correct it. Hell, they usually won’t even listen to a white man like me who speaks the truth they don’t like. But speak it anyway, and don’t let the lie go unchallenged. “The Civil War was about money!” Yes. Specifically, the money from an economy built on the backs of enslaved people. “The Civil War was about states’ rights!” Yes – whether or not Southern States had the right to enslave an entire ethnicity. “This flag is about heritage, not hate!” Yes – a heritage of enslaving an entire people group and attempting to secede rather than stop enslaving people. That’s the job for me and my fellow Southern white people. Of course, y’all up North don’t get to just sit back and relax. You’ve got your own lies to fight against – specifically, lies about racism not historically or currently being a problem up there. It was, and it is, and we’ve all got to fight against these lies however they manifest themselves around us. Anyway, according to the fucking vice president of the confederacy (content warning: this is a transcript of a speech given by the vice president of the CSA, so…you know, figure it out) the war, and the whole reason for the existence of the confederacy in the first place, was totally about slavery.

Being Alone, Matlock, and Tumblr: NOAM CHOMSKY: It's a pretty remarkable fact that-first of all, it is a joke. Half the world is cracking up in laughter. The United States doesn't just interfere in elections. It overthrows governments it doesn't like, institutes military dictatorships. Simply in the case of Russia alone-it's the least of it-the U.S. government, under Clinton, intervened quite blatantly and openly, then tried to conceal it, to get their man Yeltsin in, in all sorts of ways. So, this, as I say, it's considered-it's turning the United States, again, into a laughingstock in the world. So why are the Democrats focusing on this? In fact, why are they focusing so much attention on the one element of Trump's programs which is fairly reasonable, the one ray of light in this gloom: trying to reduce tensions with Russia? That's-the tensions on the Russian border are extremely serious. They could escalate to a major terminal war. Efforts to try to reduce them should be welcomed. Just a couple of days ago, the former U.S. ambassador to Russia, Jack Matlock, came out and said he just can't believe that so much attention is being paid to apparent efforts by the incoming administration to establish connections with Russia. He said, "Sure, that's just what they ought to be doing." So, meanwhile, this one topic is the primary locus of concern and critique, while, meanwhile, the policies are proceeding step by step, which are extremely destructive and harmful. So, you know, yeah, maybe the Russians tried to interfere in the election. That's not a major issue. Maybe the people in the Trump campaign were talking to the Russians. Well, OK, not a major point, certainly less than is being done constantly. And it is a kind of a paradox, I think, that the one issue that seems to inflame the Democratic opposition is the one thing that has some justification and reasonable aspects to it. c-bassmeow: Noam Chomsky’s piercing comments on the Democrat’s “Russia stole our election!” obsession.
