Following the Money at Washington and Lee

by Al Benson Jr.

After the culturally genocidal move of Washington and Lee University to ban all Confederate symbols, uniforms, flags, whatever, from the Washington and Lee campus, someone on my email list sent me a message in which he wondered where Washington and Lee got some of its funding. I thought that was a legitimate question and I hadn't seen anyplace where that was dealt with, not that I am surprised at that. So I did a bit of "huntin' and peckin" on the Internet, as my daughter calls it to see what I could find.

The six black students who were so uncomfortable with Confederate symbols are all law students, at least according to the news accounts I've read and they want everything Confederate removed from the campus and they've threatened "civil disobedience" if no one paid attention to their demands. That the school administration grovelled before them doesn't surprise me in the least. In the experience I've had with colleges they always seem to bend over backwards to cow-tow to the deviations of the leftist politically correct. No one else matters to them. That the majority of their students may not be politically correct and may not agree to the deviations of the left makes no difference whatever. The squeaky wheel always get the grease.

In scrounging around on the Internet I came across a couple things of interest. There was an article posted on April 30, 2014 by a Peter Jetton, the headline for which was: "W and L Tax Clinic Receives IRS Grant for Seventh Straight Year." The article started off: "The Tax Clinic at the Washington and Lee University School of Law has been awarded a matching grant from the Internal Revenue Service's Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic Program (LITC). This is the seventh straight year that the Tax Clinic has received federal dollars to support its efforts. The grant of $75,000, the largest in the Clinic's history, will help fund the Clinic for the 2014 calendar year."

According to another article, the clinic is directed by Michelle Lyon Drumbl, a former IRS attorney who is an assistant clinical professor of law at Washington and Lee University. The article went on to note that the Tax Clinic is "independent of the IRS and the federal government." That may be so, but they still take money from the IRS.

Back in August of 2010, in an article by Jeff Hanna, which appeared on  it was noted that: "Affordable high-speed Internet access will be extended to Rockbridge County residents and a new shared data center will be built at Washington and Lee University, both as a result of a $6.9 million federal grant announced on Wednesday, Aug 18." I submit that $6.9 million ain't chump change. It seems that the university has done pretty well with federal grants over the years.

I don't know if any of this federal money has had any influence on how quickly the university sought to purge its campus of anything Confederate or not. I can't say for sure. But, with my suspicious mind it does make me wonder. Had the university leadership had the intestinal fortitude to at least look at the other side of this issue and consider how people on both sides felt, would further federal funding have been withheld? Again, we don't know, but it would be nice if we did. Is federal money used to blackmail institutions into doing what the feds want done? It wouldn't be the first time. They tried the same game at Hillsdale College in Michigan several years ago now and the way the Hillsdale administration got around it was to end up flat-out refusing to accept any students that took federal aid in any form. Based on what I have read about the leadership at Washington and Lee, I doubt they would be willing to do that. Cultural genocide against Christian whites and their history and heritage is much less expensive.

Cultural Genocide in Lexington, Virginia--what else is new?

by Al Benson Jr.

Cultural genocide against white Christians has almost become so commonplace that most folks don't even notice it anymore and it's just as bad in the South, if not worse, than in many other places. The cultural genocide promoters are beginning to feel at this point, with the leftist political slant so obvious now in Washington, that they have it within their grasp to completely eradicate Confederate and Southern culture if they just push a little harder, just get rid of a few more Confederate statues, change the names of a few more streets from Stonewall Jackson Blvd. to Malcolm X Avenue, and get rid of any Confederate flags or symbols in any and all institutions of learning, then they can erase all memory of Confederate and Southern history--all except for the slavery issue. That one has to be kept alive because the hope for some sort of future reparations is still down the road. All they have to do is to promote a little more white guilt and the silver will start to flow--right into their pockets. You have to realize that if there are ever any reparations paid they will not go to ordinary black folks, they will be paid to the race-baiters and those who know how to deal the race card off the bottom of the deck. That's really what it's all about for them--fleecing whitey!

Recently, at Washington and Lee University, several black students entered the chapel and felt "uncomfortable" with the Confederate flag, with its St. Andrews Cross hanging in there. I don't know what their agenda was (I can guess) but they went to the head of the school and complained.

The president of the school, Mr. Kenneth Ruscio, apparently is even beyond being politically correct. I get the impression from what I've read that he almost tripped over his own feet getting over to the chapel to get those "evil" Confederate flags out of there. Needless to say, there has been considerable protest against his eager willingness to play the politically correct "fearless leader." Not that he cares, because, like most of those in leadership positions in colleges and universities nowadays he has been so imbued with the "white guilt" syndrome that he can't wait to do the bidding of the leftist black radicals. He's their boy, all the way!

I wish I had a dollar for every letter that Mr. Ruscio has gotten about this situation from Southern patriots. I could probably take a trip to Mexico and back--if I could ever fight my way through the hoards of illegal immigrants to get there, or somehow manage to get through the Border Patrol checkpoints which seem more interested in harassing American citizens than in catching illegals. But I digress.

At Washington and Lee University you can tell the agenda is definitely Cultural Genocide. A 15-year old youngster, who had come with some people that were protesting what the university had done in removing Confederate flags, assayed to go into the chapel at the university because he just wanted to see the chapel and the grave of Lee's horse, Traveler. The youngster observed: "As I began to head for the Lee Chapel, a police officer stopped me and said that I could not enter the campus property with my Battle Flag or any images of Confederate flags on any of my possessions including my clothing. I really wanted to pay my respects to General Lee and Traveler so I had to turn my shirt inside out, take off my hat, and take off my badge. When I finally arrived at the chapel there was a sign on the front door saying that the Lee Chapel was closed for the weekend."

Folks, I ask, isn't that just a bit extreme? But, then, leftist cultural genocide is never anything but extreme--after all, when your agenda is the destruction of white, Christian culture, you can't afford to do it by half-way measures--you've got to go all the way, and if you can't get it buried deep enough, it might just rise up and haunt you.

Understand, when these black radicals prattle about "love and diversity" and "multiculturalism" there is no room for you in all that. You are supposed to be gone, eliminated, or at least marginalized to the point where you don't dare say anything. That this is part and parcel of the agenda of most schools nowadays should be evident from what has gone on at Washington and Lee University recently. The Marxist radicals feel they are in the ascendancy so there's no room for you. Since this is the position that Washington and Lee University has taken, I'd suggest that anyone planning to send their kids to that school might want to think twice and possibly choose another school--unless you are prepared to surrender your cultural identity for a mess of "racist" pottage.

We We're Right About the Anti-Illegal Amnesty Protests And the "News" Media

by Al Benson Jr.

Today, on the Internet, WorldNet Daily had an article about the anti-amnesty protests taking place across the country. Their article noted that there were protests in 319 different cities across the country. It also noted, as I said yesterday, that the regular "news" media would almost totally try to ignore and suppress information about the protests.

The media Ministry of Propaganda gets paid to make sure Comrade Obama looks good to the public (and they are really having to earn their money nowadays) and info about these protests will make the Marxist-in-Chief in the White House look bad so they must try to suppress all they can. Even Fox News has pretty much ignored these protests and that tells you where Fox News is really at--the same place all the other media prostitutes are at.

At any rate, the WorldNet Daily Internet article had photos of several of the demonstrations around the country, notably in the South and West. While whatever "news" media did take note of this went out of their way to label the protesters as "racists" which I also said would happen, the WorldNet Daily photos showed black people out there demonstrating against the illegal aliens along with white folks. Many blacks are finally starting to figure out that their blind support of Obama because of his skin color is going to cost them. And it will for a fact.

If the illegal aliens are given amnesty and allowed to remain in the country, what will that do to job possibilities for Americans of whatever color? You have to know this Regime will pass along whatever job possibilities it can to the illegals at the expense of Americans. That's the way this Regime operates. Ordinary Americans are at the bottom of this Regime's totem pole and they are expected to support all the weight of the millions of illegals we already have and that Obama wants to bring in. That's the name of the game folks, and all of you that voted for Obama have helped to sow the seeds of your own destruction. Comforting thought, ain't it?

Protests nationally over amnesty for illegal aliens on July 18-19, 2014

by Al Benson Jr.

Although the "news" media will try not to give it much coverage there is a big national protest going on over the weekend of July 18-19 all across the country. Demonstrations are being carried out in many states, often on overpasses on Interstate highways so that lots of drivers can see what's happening.

The demonstrators, belonging to several anti-illegal amnesty groups realize they need to get their message out to the public at large and they realize that what passes for the "news" media in this country will work to suppress their efforts. So they are seeking to be as visible as possible.

Demonstrations are being carried out in major cities. Two in Texas, one in Austin and one in San Antonio, are being carried out in front of the Mexican consulates in those two cities and in Salinas, California a demonstration is being held in front of the office of a Congressman. I'm sure he'll get the message even if he doesn't want to.

Those wanting a list of where demonstrations are being held can check out

There is a list on that site of all the planned demonstrations as of the afternoon of July 18th.

Check it out, and if there is a city, or an overpass, near you that a demonstration is being held at, go on out and take part. Our Marxist-in-Chief in Washington would love to flood the country will illegal immigrants at the expense of Americans, whom he seems to have no use for. When he said he was going to "fundamentally transform the United States" he wasn't kidding. Had people understood what he meant maybe he would not have gotten elected. Those who understand the Marxist mindset knew what he meant, but nobody wanted to hear it. They were all wrapped up in his "hope and change" balderdash.

One wonders how many Americans will have to be displaced to make room for the flood of illegal aliens he wants here. Just think where the country will go when he manages to give them the vote--and he will manage, one way or another.

Check out the locations for demonstrations and support them if at all possible.
