The Culture War
Since the South lost the War Between the States, the North has
controlled the writing of main history books as well as the newspapers and information
sources in general. If you are not aware of this, please don't be offended by our
declaration. As information turns up that may be of interest to those who know the subject
of Southern Heritage, we will present it here. If you are new to learning about this

Heston Harvard Speech
One of the most buried of American sociological controversies is America's
Culture Wars. Those driving it, of course, would prefer most Americans remain
asleep while their work of destruction rolls quietly and steadily on.
But there are a lot of cowards among us who are not worthy of the heritage we
enjoy. These are the folks who will sell out their ancestors in two seconds
to avoid being called a name or be inconvienced in any way defending their
Only a few celebrities have spoken out on the problem. Pat Buchanan is the
only politician that I am aware of, and Charlton Heston the only one from
Hollywood. His Harvard speech below, unknown to most Americans, is a classic. Heritage TV is proud to share it with you.
Charlton Heston addressed the topic 'Winning the Cultural War' at the
Harvard Law School Forum, February 16, 1999. Here is the text of that speech: By Charlton

The Truth Will Out!
by Michael Peirce
In 1861 there were, in the Southern states of America, approximately two million free black people. An equal or slightly larger number were held as slaves, who, like the freemen noted previously, had been brought to this continent originally by unscrupulous and unprincipled slave ship captains.
These Northern traders in 'black gold,' purchased human beings from tribal chieftains who sold other Africans whom they had themselves enslaved or captured in the constant tribal wars that characterized life on the 'dark' continent. Being sold as a slave to a white slave trader was a pretty gruesome experience but it pales when compared to the alternative: ritual murder, cannibalism, or a short lifetime of slavery under black masters. By the date noted above, there were more free blacks in the South than there were in the North, both in numbers and percentages. It should be emphasized that free blacks in the South were almost all farmers or tradesmen and had not been merely shown the door, as it were, but freed into a productive and useful lifestyle.
Was slavery as an institution inherently evil? The answer must be a resounding "yes!" So was the Roman empire, which held millions in bondage. Yet God used the trade routes maintained by those wicked Romans to spread the Gospel message of salvation - a message that eventually made its way to the Americas. And to the slaves brought here, it was a message of hope that they might never have heard otherwise. All things, truly, work together for good.
Had slavery ended in the South as it surely would have, as a result of plain old economics, plus the growing revulsion against it by individual Southerners like Robert E. Lee, the current racial divide would not exist.
Indeed, as the British found new sources for cotton, ironically, in Africa, the raison d'Ítre for slavery in the South would have disappeared. Black people, freed willingly by those who knew them personally, would been integrated into a changing economy where their place would have been assured. Sadly, it did not happen that way.
The year 1861 was a dark year for this country, because the US government, at the behest of greedy Northern manufacturers, decided to put a crippling tariff in place that would have virtually bankrupted Southerners, who decided to exercise their constitutional right to withdraw from the Union. President Lincoln, a racist who detested blacks, sent his armies against the Southern states and was defeated repeatedly by highly motivated Southern troops who were fighting for the very land upon which they stood. Driven to desperation, the war criminal Lincoln finally resorted to two policies that continue to haunt this country to this very day: emancipation and total war.
The former policy, it should be very carefully noted, was applied only to the Southern states; General Grant in fact held slaves until very near the end of the decade. He of course was a Northerner and thus, not accountable for his actions. The latter policy, the truly horrific step into the abyss, was the first time use of total war against civilized people. Southerners, both white and free black, where to be beaten into submission with a full-scale attack on what is today called "infrastructure." That means our homes and farms were looted and torched.
Civilians were starved. Free blacks were conscripted as laborers by the Yankee armies and their property confiscated as well. They were, after all, in the words of a Yankee general, just "niggers." The Yankee forces made no effort to discriminate between "contrabands," their term for former slaves, and free black people. Indeed the first major battle of the war, called Bull Run by the Yankees, involved bloody combat on a farm owned by a free black Southerner.
Many Northerners voted against Lincoln in 1864, including over a third of the combat soldiers, because he had turned the war for the union (as they saw it) into a war to end slavery. To retain his power the war criminal Lincoln acted much like his more recent successors, suspending civil rights of all kinds, including the crucial habeas corpus. Thousands were locked up for "suspicion" of being in sympathy with the South, and by extrapolation, of being in sympathy with the United States Constitution. Do the descendants of those who suffered under the despot deserve reparations?
Napoleon, despite his well known reputation for ruthlessness, threw away his chance to retain his crown after the so called "Battle of the Nations" at Leipzig in 1813. It was suggested to the Emperor that he devastate Saxony, scorching the very earth to cover his retreat, but he demurred, calling such a tactic "uncivilized!" Even the First World War, murderous debacle that it was, saw no deliberate attacks against civilians on anything approaching the scale that Lincoln approved against the Southern states. War this horrific was not seen again until Roosevelt unleashed his "terror bombers"against
German civilians, and German forces in Poland and Ukraine mimicked Sherman's murderous "bummers."
So it is obvious that the great grand children of white southerners and black freemen are most certainly owed reparations by the central government, which should be collected from those Northern states whose troops participated in the barbarous and illegal attack on the South.
It would probably be a good idea also to insist that the Naacp and similar organizations pay reparations to the people of this country, black and white, who have suffered under the lash of political correctness and racial divide.
The wounds of war, slavery, and reconstruction will never heal while these opportunists continue to make their living by exploiting racial issues and finding racism in every word and phrase. They have contributed to the decline of intelligent discourse in this country, and with that decline goes freedom, because no one is free who must watch his every word. Since more than half the population of black males in this country are currently or where at one time, incarcerated, makes one gasp in disbelief at the antics of groups like the Naacp, who slavishly support any and all left government policy, yet claim to be for the "advancement of colored people." Their legacy is crime and broken homes.
Those receiving reparations should include the parents of children educated in government schools. Thanks to the slavish adherence to an incredibly stupid ideology, taxpayers were robbed of their money at gunpoint by a despotic government who paid that money to people who are demonstrably incompetent and whose motives are not merely suspect, but well known to be anti-American. So, yes, reparations are an excellent idea.
Black taxpayers in particular are due reparations - as Walter Williams has noted, segregated schools once produced a superior product, and regardless of the moral problems with segregation, the task of a school is to educate, not indoctrinate. Black children are not only coming out of school as dumb as their white counterparts, their self esteem is artificially encouraged which inculcates in them a sense of injustice, as if they are owed something by the rest of us. So the school teachers and government officials should indeed pay reparations to those black students. But mark this well, that money must and should come out of their own pockets; the taxpayers are not responsible for the farce of education in this country. Had we any freedom left, we would not tolerate it. All this travesty is perpetrated at gunpoint, by evil extortionists to whom we, the American people, in our ignorance, believe to be well intentioned. They are not.
Southern white men are most certainly due reparations by the American government. Pay up Yankees or forever shut your sniveling mouths about the "rule of law." The un-constitutional attack perpetrated by Lincoln was the vilest crime committed in the history of this nation, and the worst part of it is that is was committed by Americans against Americans. Yet that modern despot, Clinton, would have us believe that "self determination" is a natural offshoot of democracy, but only of course, in the case of drug smuggling Islamic terrorists, who happen to live near a projected pipeline.
Finally, no essay on reparations would be complete without a passing glance at the activities of the few ignorant black extremists who have spoken out in favor of reparations for the ancestors of black people held as slaves in former days. This very suggestion speaks of an ignorance, and a hubris, of monstrous proportions. Black Americans should get down on their knees and praise a merciful God for that institution that, despite it's wicked nature,
delivered them from them horrors of Africa and exposed them to the saving Word of Christ. Had they remained in Africa, the choices that life would be offering them today are many: mutilation in Sierra Leone, genocide in Ruwanda, AIDS and crime in South Africa, mass shootings in Liberia, cannibalism in Uganda - the list is endless and horrific.
Like the ancient Jews held in bondage for four hundred years in Egypt, black people in America have felt the hand of God on their shoulders, making a way for them where had seemed to be none. Slavery that ultimately delivered the souls of the slaves to Grace must be considered a light burden and no apologies are in order. There is the secular aspect as well - American blacks live in the lap of luxury, and taxpayers have been robbed of three trillion dollars to create a welfare state that ensures that no one "falls between the cracks." That this system has benefited few but the thieving politicians who created it, does not negate that fact that many well meaning people have opened their pocket books and in this country today, there is food, medical care, and housing for all. The option of life in Africa bears scant resemblance.
Our white ancestors embraced slavery as an institution that had existed since the dawn of time. To their credit, they had begun to realize that this institution was by it's very nature evil, and would have ended it peacefully but for the intervention of greedy Northern politicians. Blacks and whites should stand together now, and rejoice in the little bit of freedom that remains, and take back what is rightfully ours, and eschew the lingering hatreds of the reconstruction era, and make for ourselves a country where liberty and justice for all is not just a hollow mockery in the mouth of a treasonous usurper.
