 The Darkest Day
Monday 10 May 2021

 

The time will inevitably come wherein the citizens of the member States and territories of the Confederacy will find their options limited, as they face the unavoidable; either they shall be among those who rule, or else stand with those who are ruled by others.  They will become a world-class power or become ever more subservient to those who hold power over them.  While this is a lawful peaceful scenario, nonetheless, the issue remains, will we avoid loosing the few liberties we now enjoy, or will we rise up as a people and confront the Yankee Pharaoh.
.
We either embrace the Cause of the Confederacy with zeal, or in due course of time we will be reduced to the equivalent of slavery, howbeit by another name.  Our choices are simple, rise up and liberate the Confederacy, or else face extinction; there is no third option; those who cannot now comprehend the urgency, will surely do so when it is to late.  The following example confronts this very issue of what will happen if we continue along our present course of divisiveness, stalemate and inaction.

"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 in sufficient numbers 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 time, thereby collectively preventing such an occurrence!"
.

Let us visit that yet future ‘Darkest Day’ that we might see, if possible, what it would be like! The Confederate and or Southern People for whatever reason has thus far stood without any form of national leader, a leadership able to rally the masses in support of our cause. Additionally they have thus far refused to rise up in defense of those things for which their own forefathers fought, suffered, bled and died in agony. Still they instinctive knew that unless conditions changed, our people would surely fall into an even deeper complacency, procrastination and compromise then before. Thereby the light of our movement would grow dimmer, as our cause faced the real and imminent likelihood of extinction.
.
Nonetheless they refused to heed the signs, particularly the various organizational leaders, who should have known better, failed to take a strong and decisive stance, outside of divisiveness. 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, issues unrelated to a strategy for ultimate victory. These leaders produced precious little outside of well-written clichés and fancy speeches! While they malingered, many among our numbers having been inspired to join, believing the movement held out a viable promise of ultimate victory, began to drift away.
.
As a result of these as well as other conditions, there came a dark day the likes of which has never been known in the Southland, which is referred to by those few old enough to recall, as The Darkest Day. This day is even now memorialized among the few among our numbers, with mourning and remembrance; like one would the day of a funeral, with all the appropriate ceremonies. Looking back on it now, it all began when a District Federal Court handed down harsh ruling, which had the effect of sanctioning the outlawing of our history, heritage, culture and symbols, as it relates to the Old South and the Confederacy. The effects of this ruling at that time was placed on hold temporarily pending appeal, eventually the case was 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 take place. 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 it found our enemies boasting, while gleefully sticking out their chests with great 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 the 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 are hauled into civil as well as federal court. Organizational as well as individual bankruptcy and even suicides followed as families are torn asunder. The mere ownership of a Confederate flag, symbol, book, periodical or bumper sticker, other then possibly as a museum piece, is found to be enough to bring suspicion upon an individual.
.
Companies and businesses, which manufactured, distributed and sold various Confederate or Southern items found them selves picketed, many 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 jumping 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 things Confederate and traditionally Southern. 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 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 is 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 is 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 do turn out to be true!
.
He quietly and without public notice organizes, trains, unites, expands and equips the various militias into a national 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!
.
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' and 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 have 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 doing so, as it were, under cover. This situation developed behind the scenes while celebrations and court litigations at every level were taking place, as Confederates organized ever so quietly and completely unnoticeable by the public, or the various government agencies.
.
Those people's own military and governmental structure becomes totally infiltrated, an event which itself continues on course and totally unnoticed. Thus those peoples own military and police forces, gradually begin to switch loyalties and pass into the status of a Confederate Command. Those peoples own oath of allegiance is eventually used as a weapon against them! This occurred within both political and militarily arena, based upon as a result of their own enforcement, and of a twisted interpretation as to the letter of the law in regards to the text of their Yankee Constitution, particularly in regards 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. Interesting 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 arenas, hold the complete and undivided attention of the public. Thereby the creation and growth of our 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 has thus far turn out to be similar to the story of the Trojan horse! The Unified Confederate Forces already has become a formidable and dynamic force, long before their existence is even realized, and well before those people began to comprehend, that the Confederates have penetrated the walls of the empire. They are even now moving about as members of the Active, Reserve and National Guard Commands, drilling and holding key positions.
.
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 has been that our officers will be placed in command of large and critical areas of 'those peoples' own armed forces. Once the complete scenario is in place, the darkest of all days will then come upon our occupation forces. The doors of the Trojan horse will then begin to swing opened, releasing the dogs of war and a war the Confederates will 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 eventually becomes the first to shed blood. The outbreak of war began when a National Guard Unit is activated and ordered to quail an 'out of control urban celebration', which was then underway in a certain Southern university town.
.
The party had developed into a riot, which was brought on by over zealous celebrators, as a result of the Supreme Court decision! Unknown to the many partygoers the National Guard Unit has 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 necessarily responding.
.
Thereby allowing 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 immediately enforced. Until they allowed their celebrating to get out of control, and it became a case of mass destruction and chaos!

The war would turn 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. 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 we 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 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 area very area of their vulnerability, their dependency on computer systems and technology.
 
Our forces had carried out a series of 'strike 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 a gain. Our generals would then scatter our attacks in such a manor, so as to ensure the war is not fought merely on Southern soil, but so it would be extremely devastating to 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 will eventually become known as the 1,000-day war, which culminated in a negotiated peace. This negotiated peace was arrived at on the strictest on 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 occupation forces.
 
The Confederate side managed to agree among other items to a policy of no militarized borders, however the United States inevitably accepted the entire undesirable, 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, which will make its coming to pass even more likely. Just as in a 'stage play' actors play their part, based upon his or her own individuals talents and sense of honor, or lack thereof. These things, like the stage play, will be caused to happen, they will not take place by happenchance!"

God save the Confederacy

"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}
