"The article you are about to read describes a scenario not unlike that which may happen; if complacency, procrastination and compromise continues, and the Southern People refuse to rise up politically, in defense of those things Confederate and Southern.  This short article is published in order to deliver a strong message, if possible.  My prayer is that we may do so in sufficient time and collectively prevent such an occurrence!"

"The article you are about to read describes a scenario not unlike that which may happen; if complacency, procrastination and compromise continues, and the Southern People refuse to rise up politically, in defense of those things Confederate and Southern.  This short article is published in order to deliver a strong message, if possible.  My prayer is that we may do so in sufficient time and collectively prevent such an occurrence!"

Let us visit that ‘Darkest Day’ that we might see, if possible, what it might like!  The Confederate and or Southern People for whatever reason stood without any form of national leadership, a leadership able to rally the masses in support of the cause.  Additionally they had refused to rise up in defense of those things for which their own forefathers fought, suffered, bled and died in agony.  They instinctive knew that unless conditions changed, our people would surely fall even deeper into a status of complacency, procrastination and compromise.  The light of our movement eventually growing dimmer, as our cause faced the real and imminent likelihood of extinction.
.
Still they refused to heed the signs, even the various organizational leaders, who should have known better, failed to take a strong and decisive stance.  Given their mindset, it was not at all surprising that we heard precious little from them, save for the rare chatter over the internet, as well as those occasional boastings over meaningless issues unrelated to a strategy for collective victory.  These leaders produced precious little outside of well-written clichés and the occasional speeches!   While they malingered many among our numbers having been inspired to join, believing the movement held out some promise of ultimate victory, began to drift away.

.

As a result of these as well as other conditions, came a dark day the likes of which has never been known in the Southland, which is referred to by those few who recall, as The Darkest Day.  This day is even now memorialized among the precious few of us, with mourning and saddened memories; like unto the day of a funeral with all the appropriate ceremonies.  It all began when a District Federal Court handed down a ruling, which had the effect of sanctioning the outlawing of our history, heritage, culture, symbols and yes our nationhood, as it relates to the Old South and the Confederacy.  The effects of this ruling at the time were placed on hold temporarily, pending appeal, and then the case was eventually brought before the U.S. Supreme Court.
,
The Confederate people at that time held out some small measure of hope that perhaps the Supreme Court would overturn the lower Courts, but this did not happen.  It was on this the darkest of all days that the Supreme Court handed down its infamous decision, based upon a seven and two ruling!  In short the ruling stated; "Confederate and Southern history, heritage, culture and symbols, as well as all things related thereto, represent hate, bigotry and prejudice.  Therefore it is considered both lawful and constitutional to forbid the promulgation, display or teaching of the same."

.

The effects of this ruling were immediate and found our enemies boasting, while gleefully sticking out their chests with great pride and celebration.  Merry making broke out all across the land, spilling out into the streets with dancing, drunkenness, noise making and the honking of horns, particularly in so many liberal and black households and neighborhoods.  Those we formerly called scalawags, traitors and carpetbaggers stated in their self-righteous tones, “ We told you so, all things Confederate and Southern are now legally considered hate, prejudicial and bigotry.  We were right all along!"

.

These events were quickly followed by civil law suites against any organization or group, remotely connected to those things Confederate and Southern.  Many of our Confederate and Southern organizations found themselves in a desperate situation; their leaders and members alike were hauled into civil as well as federal court.  Organizational as well as individual bankruptcies and even suicides followed as families were torn asunder.  The mere ownership of a Confederate flag, symbol, book, periodical or bumper sticker, other then possibly as a museum piece, was found to be enough to bring suspicion upon an individual.

.

Companies and businesses, which manufactured, distributed and sold various Confederate and Southern items, found them selves picketed, many such businesses were even stoned or burned.  Then came that horrible night in the United States, which was equivalent to the 'Night of the Broken Glass’ made famous just prior to the outbreak of the Second World War.  Few if any candidates or politicians could resist the temptation to jump onboard the anti-Southern, anti-Confederate bandwagon, as full-blown witch hunts against Confederates filled the court dockets, keeping law enforcement agencies working overtime.

.
Harsh sentences were handed down against those unlawful citizens who would dare to hold onto any semblance of those now banned Confederate items.  Those who had formerly preached militancy in the form of militias as the answer to our predicament suddenly found their day in the sun had finally arrived, and the option of military resistance suddenly seems viable, even preferable.  This growing militant sector of the Confederate population now flowered and grew like weeds in a fertile field.  Militias in the member States and territories of the Confederacy as well as other likeminded groups elsewhere, found themselves growing into massive numbers.

.

It was during the early phase that a man arrived upon the scene known simply as 'The Gray General.'   He was known initially only through rumors and wild stories, which for the most part were found to be unbelievable.  The existence of such a man is after all impossible, since the story was never backed by any solid evidence, sound information, pictures or any identification as to who this mystery man might be.   It has been said, if he truly exists, which is doubtful, where is he?  Let him show himself!   While at the same time, regardless of the disbelief these stories did turn out to be true!

.

He quietly and without public notice organized, trained, unites, expands and equips the various militias into a world-class military fighting force.  A task which will eventually amaze generations yet unborn, this due in large part to his tactics in carrying out his mission, while casting doubt upon his own existence.  He somehow brought about a change in the structure of militias from separate and scattered units to that of a single organized army, answering to a State and National chain of command.  An army headed up by a General Staff at various levels!  But more then this, he instituted true military self-discipline, devotion and an adherence to an Oath of Allegiance.

   .

This army ended up advocating those very things for which our movement has thus far been unwilling to defend in the public arena, and under a single national leadership command structure.  This man known here, as 'The Gray General’ soon became the 'Commander - Unified Confederate Forces', which came to be known throughout the militias as "U.C.F."   Unknown to the mass propaganda media, they themselves would unwittingly become the instrument whereby the U.C.F.'s command orders were communicated throughout this new Confederate Army.  This would be accomplished through the use of planted and baited stories carried in the mass media press!

.
Many millions of Confederates who had previously refuse to stand up for the cause for various illegitimate reasons, suddenly found the time and inclination to do so, now that life itself is on the line.  Suddenly and without realizing, our occupational armed forces became the training grounds for a ‘reborn’ Confederate States Armed Force.  Those people unknowingly ended up training our Confederate Troops, as well as arming and equipping them with the latest technology, simply because so many of them wound up joining their numbers, as it were, under cover.  This situation developed behind the scenes while celebrations and court litigations at every level were taking place, as Confederates reorganized ever so quietly and completely unnoticeable to the public, or the various government agencies.
.
Those peoples own military and governmental structure becomes totally infiltrated, an event which itself continued on course and totally unnoticed.   Thus those people own military and police forces, gradually begin to switch loyalties and pass into the status of a Confederate Command.  Their own oath of allegiance was eventually used as a weapon against them!  This occurred within both political as well as the militarily arena, as a result of their own enforcements, and of a twisted interpretation as to the letter of the law, in regard to the text of their Yankee Constitution, particularly as it applied to the provisions of the 10th amendment.

.

Many of their own people while in key positions of power, are accused of supplying confederate literature and materials!  Interestingly enough, it is our own people who bring these charges, in order to have certain individuals removed from power!   During this period of time the international involvement of our occupational forces both in the diplomatic and military arena, held the complete and undivided attention of the public.  Thereby the creation and growth of our modern Confederate Armies had unfolded, without the civil population taking any particular or special notice.   Additionally there were only be a few individuals among the many developing militia commands, who managed to realize the full impact of what was taking place.

.

These developments eventually came as a total surprise, even to our own growing Confederate military forces commanders!  This process was so well orchestrated; it had thus far turn out to be similar to the story of the Trojan horse!  The Unified Confederate Forces already had become a formidable and dynamic force, long before their existence was even realized, and well before those people ever began to comprehend, that the Confederates have penetrated the walls of the empire.  They were even now moving about as members of the Active, Reserve and National Guard Commands, drilling and holding key positions of authority.
.
Even while using 'those peoples' own command and communications networks, in behalf of our Unified Confederate Forces.  This has come to pass in the guise of normal household traffic!   The most effective strategy in this struggle had been, in the normal course of operations, handed to our modern Confederate Officers, when our occupational forces institute a program of cleansing the military of all rudiments of those things confederate.  These tactics came as a direct result of the Supreme Court Ruling!   However, the process in this case has in this case been turned against those people, resulting in a reversal of what began as our ultimate defeat, and transforming it into a strategy for victory.
.
The result was that our officers had been placed in command of large and critical areas of 'those peoples' own armed forces!  Once the complete scenario was in place, the so called darkest of all days, then became a problem for our occupation forces.   The doors of the modern Trojan horse then began to swing opened, releasing the dogs of war, and a war the Confederates would surely win.  However not at all for the reasons most of our people might believe!    Using the example in the title of the movie First Blood, one side or the other would eventually becomes the first to shed the others blood.  The outbreak of war began when a National Guard Unit was activated and ordered to quail an 'out of control urban celebration', which was then underway in a certain Southern university town.

   .

The party had progressed to the point of being a riot, which was brought on by over zealous celebrators, as a result memorializing the Supreme Court decision.   Unknown to the many partygoers the National Guard Unit had been totally infiltrated by loyal Confederate troops, so their intention was to crush the riots, and do so very quickly upon arrival.  These troops were believers in peaceful protests to be sure, but were not about to tolerate the destruction of their own towns and cities.  Therefore the rioters goaded them upon their arrival, even throwing homemade gasoline grenades at the troops, inevitably provoking the National Guardsmen into predictable response.
.

Thereby the rioters own actions allowed the National Guard no option, but to open fire with various automatic weapons!  The war therefore began out of a necessity for self defense against armed, and out of control rioters!  The ongoing destruction of property, looting and bloodletting by the rioters was soon brought to an end, resulting in approximately 5,500 dead among their numbers.  Later it was discovered that about two thirds of those killed in the riots had been bussed in from northeastern States for the sole purpose of ensuring the Supreme Courts ruling would be enforced to the ultimate extreme.  Until they allowed their celebrating to get out of control, and it had become a case of mass destruction and chaos!
.

The war eventually turned out to be devastating for both sides, resulting in a 25 percent Confederate loss of both the Confederate forces as well as the civilian population.  But beyond a doubt the Yankee side faired much worse, suffering approximately 40 percent loss, in all categories!  While the Confederate forces had been out numbered four to one, the Confederate victory had been attributed to better generals and tactics.   Thereby rather then fight a concentrated, confrontational war, as their Confederates forefathers had done during the War for Confederate Independence, the modern day battle strategy had been to decentralize.

    .

Whereby in earlier days our forefathers had hurtled our troops against what amounted to a wall of musket fire and grape shot, in what amounted to a series of death charges.  This time around, our forces had adopted a guerrilla war strategy, using the tactic of hitting the enemy with lightening speed, unexpectedly, and where it hurts most.  Confederates had attacked such places as fuel dumps, railroad engines, munitions warehouses, power plants, as well as communications, and in particular, striking at the very area of their vulnerability, their dependency on computer systems and technology.

.

Our forces had carried out a series of  'lightening strikes and disappear raids’, doing so often and repeatedly, until the enemy suffered an untenable rate of personal and re-supply losses, with little to show for their sacrifice.  Our generals would then scatter our attacks in such a manor, so as to ensure, the war would not be fought merely on Southern soil, but extremely devastating within the enemy’s own homeland.   Thereby taking the war directly to the aggressor own backyard!   Politicians on both sides had thus far been kept busy throughout the war, forging coalitions with various allied nations.

   .

Attempting to ensure that neither side is attacked by outside forces in an attempt to take advantage of the situation!  The greatest of all wars had begun in what in due course of time, become known as the 1,000-day war, which culminated in a negotiated peace.  This negotiated peace was arrived at on the strictest of terms, and favorable to the Confederacy, thereby making possible the independence of our nation, the Confederate States of America.  The terms of the negotiated peace turned out to be a very costly affair, from the viewpoint of our former occupation forces.

    .

The Confederate side managed to agree on among other items, to a policy of no militarized borders, however the United States inevitably accepted all of the undesirables, the criminal illegal immigrants, as well as the return of its own carpetbaggers, scalawags and traitors from the Confederacy.  Since the Yankees encouraged and promulgated homosexuality and racial preferences, they were also required to accept these same people as permanent guests, within their own borders.

.

"The story you have just read is quite unbelievable of course, which would make its coming to pass even more likely.  Just as in a 'stage play' actors will play their part well, based upon his or her own individuals talents and sense of honor, or lack thereof.  These things, like unto a stage play, will be caused to happen, they will not take place by happenchance!"

"Victory is for those with the persistence and fortitude to resist the temptation to withdraw or whose resolve has been tempered, when conditions worsen and the cost rises; it is not for the weak hearted, nor those who are softened by the ease and comfort of a gilded cage, provided by the enemy at the cost of liberty. It is for those who continue to fight the good fight, even after others who have gone before, having faced overwhelming numbers and firepower found themselves unable to complete the mission." --- Jay Buckner.  In any case Confederate Fiction allows us to dream and envision victory; otherwise "where there is no vision, the people parish." {Proverbs 29:18}
