“Americas Safest Tire” – 1930’s Fisk Tire Company Educational Film

This one is for men, who clearly were in charge when this manly educational film about tires was made. It’s very entertaining. It’s got stunt driving and some great old cars.

I believe the director also worked for Warner Brothers or possibly Columbia pictures. He knew what he was doing, although the acting is a little hokey.

In the 1930’s the Fisk Tire Company produced “…the auto tire everyone is talking about…”, and to help increase sales this informational publicity film was released to the general public. .

Third Confederate Statue Removed in New Orleans

More of the history of the founding stock of the nation is being removed Tuesday night as these words are being written.

The Confederate General P.G.T. Beauregard led the south’s assault on Fort Sumter. After the war, the little Frenchman made St. Bernard Parish, Louisiana his home. That the same parish where I grew up.

What ignorant politically correct anti white racists probably don’t know is that Beauregard was a supporter of complete Negro equality after the war, promoting the Negro right to vote and total integration of the races.

AP News

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Piece by piece, New Orleans’ landscape is changing as city workers take down massive works of bronze and stone that once seemed immoveable in a region where some still cling to a Confederate legacy.

The city announced late Tuesday that it had begun the process of removing a statue of Confederate Gen. P.G.T. Beauregard — the third of four monuments city officials plan to take down across the city. The news release came as police cordoned off the site and what appeared to be a large crane was moved into position. It was not clear how long it would take to remove the massive bronze likeness of Beauregard on horseback.

“Today we take another step in defining our City not by our past but by our bright future,” said Mayor Mitch Landrieu in a news release. “While we must honor our history, we will not allow the Confederacy to be put on a pedestal in the heart of New Orleans.”

Landrieu called for the monuments’ removal in the lingering emotional aftermath of the 2015 massacre of nine black parishioners at a South Carolina church. The killer, Dylann Roof, was an avowed racist who brandished Confederate battle flags in photos, recharging the debate over whether Confederate emblems represent racism or an honorable heritage.

The removal process has been anything but easy.

The City Council voted 6-1 in 2015 to remove the monuments after a succession of contentious public meetings where impassioned monument supporters and opponents heckled each other. Contractors involved in the removal process have been threatened, and the work stalled for months as monument supporters looked in vain to the courts for help. Workers removing the first two memorials generally wore bulletproof vests, helmets and face coverings to shield their identities as the work took place well after midnight to minimize attention.

The Beauregard removal appeared slightly more low-key, starting in the evening after sunset. Local media showed images of monument supporters waving Confederate battle flags while those supporting their removal stood nearby but reported the situation was largely peaceful. Across a bayou from where the monument stands, some observers sat in lawn chairs to watch the proceedigns, the media reported.

For supporters, the works are a way to remember and honor history.

“Mayor Landrieu’s actions are an insult to New Orleanians who came before us_the veterans, widows, parents, children, and citizens_who donated their personal money to build and place these monuments where they stand to honor the memory of their fallen family members,” said Pierre McGraw, President of the Monumental Task Committee, in a statement Tuesday. The committee has been advocating to keep the monuments in place.

But for many in this majority black city, the monuments pay honor to a history of slavery and segregation, and they want them down. When the statue of Confederate President Jefferson Davis was finally lifted from its pedestal, a cheer erupted from dozens of demonstrators who’d waited for hours to see the city fulfill its promise.

Louisiana House Votes to Block Removal of New Orleans Confederate Monuments, Negros Stage Walkout

JEFFERSON DAVIS MONUMENT REMOVED IN NEW ORLEANS.

Butthurt black legislators staged a walkout in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on Monday, thus raising the average IQ of the Louisiana House of Representatives by at least 10 points.

The walkout was over a bill that would require a vote by locals before any war monuments on public land could be removed

The Advocate

The Louisiana House approved legislation Monday aimed at blocking the removal of Confederate monuments, causing the 24-member Legislative Black Caucus to walk out.

A largely party-line 65-31 vote followed an emotionally charged two hours of debate and comes as the majority-black New Orleans is taking down statues of figures from the Civil War’s Confederacy.

“It was disgusting. We just couldn’t stay,” said Black Caucus member Rep. Terry Landry, D-Lafayette, while waiting in the hall for an aide to get his glasses and cellphone from his desk in the chamber. “You have to stand for something.”

The measure now goes to the state Senate for consideration. Two other proposals with similar objectives — House Bill 292 and Senate Bill 198 — are awaiting a hearing in committees.

House Bill 71 would forbid the removal, renaming or alteration of any military monument of any war, including what is referred to in the bill as the “War Between the States,” that is situated on public property unless a majority of the voters in the municipality or parish approve.

All wars were mentioned in the measure, but the debate focused only on Confederate monuments.

“The monuments you seek to protect are deeply offensive to African-Americans and to Christians,” said state Rep. Katrina Jackson, D-Monroe. “Do they have any monuments to (Adolf) Hitler in Germany?”

“This bill is very much about white supremacy and divisiveness,” said Rep. Patricia Smith, a Democrat who represents a Baton Rouge district that includes the State Capitol and which is 62 percent African-American.

State Rep. Thomas Carmody Jr., a Shreveport Republican who sponsored HB71, said his legislation “is only about allowing the public to decide.” He said he was trying to protect Southern history and heritage. He also said he believes in secession and that the Civil War was not fought by the Confederacy to protect slavery.

An advisory committee in Shreveport, a black-majority city, has been holding hearings on the future of a Confederate memorial in front of the Caddo Parish courthouse. Carmody’s predominantly south Shreveport district is 88 percent white.

Even if the bill passes the Senate and is signed into law, Carmody said that because of the timing, his legislation probably would not halt the two-year effort to remove four monuments that many in New Orleans find objectionable.

“It’s offensive to bring to the middle of my city,” said Democratic Rep. Gary Carter, of New Orleans, “monuments to those who fought for my enslavement.”

Carmody replied that voters could approve, in a scheduled election, the choice made by their City Council.

“This is the worst thing I’ve ever seen done in this building,” said Rep. Ted James, D-Baton Rouge.

Democratic and African-American representatives pursued the strategy of attempting to flood the legislation with amendments, all of which House Speaker Taylor Barras, R-New Iberia, shot down as not being germane to a bill that required a vote on removing Confederate military statues. The speaker’s rulings were sustained on near party-line votes.

“I don’t know why in a session where we can’t balance a budget,” said Democratic Rep. Sam Jones, a former Franklin mayor, “we are here today to refight the Civil War.”

Jones attempted to amend the legislation to include a minimum wage. State Rep. Barbara Carpenter, D-Baton Rouge, then tried to amend the bill to allow local elections on equal pay.

Ten legislators spoke against the legislation. Carmody was the only representative who spoke in favor of it.

HB71, Carmody said over and over again, was about holding an election for any effort to remove a war-related monument. But it was New Orleans and four Confederate statues at the center of the debate.

A marker commemorating the Battle of Liberty Place, a civilian uprising against local government, which formerly had white supremacist wording, was taken down in the middle of the night April 24. A memorial to Jefferson Davis, the Confederate president, was removed Thursday.

Muh feelz.

We should have picked our own cotton.

Torch-Carrying Virginians Protesting Removal of Confederate Statues Demonized by Mayor

Richard Spencer was in Virginia on Saturday, fighting to preserve white heritage. Let’s piece the story together. First, some anti-white politics.

Newsplex

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (NEWSPLEX) — A large group of protesters gathered at Lee Park on Saturday night to stand against the decision to remove Confederate monuments from Charlottesville.

Our media partners at the Daily Progress report the protesters were carrying torches, even chanting “You will not replace us,” “Russia is our friend,” and “Blood and soil.”

After about 10 minutes, Charlottesville police arrived at the scene following an altercation between protesters.

In a statement, Charlottesville mayor Mike Signer said, “This event involving torches at night in Lee Park was either profoundly ignorant or was designed to instill fear in our minority populations in a way that hearkens back to the days of the KKK.”

Signer went on to say, “Either way, as mayor of this city, I want everyone to know this: We reject this intimidation.” “We are a welcoming city, but such intolerance is not welcome here.”

MAYOR MIKE SIGNER.

The Daily Progress reports the crowd quickly dispersed once police arrived.

The protest comes ahead of Monday’s Charlottesville City Council meeting, where councilors are expected to decide the remaining recommendations from the Blue Ribbon Commission.

Mayor Mike Signor can kiss my white ass. He has no right to stop anyone from having or expressing a political opinion. He’s garbage to me.

Let’s turn now to why people are legitimately protesting.

NBC29

Tensions were high in Charlottesville’s Jackson Park Saturday afternoon as protesters against the removal of the Robert E. Lee statue took on supporters.

“No reason why we can’t celebrate the history that has brought us to the glorious future that we are emboldened in now,” protester Orry Von Dize said

Charlottesville’s Jackson park filled with protesters determined to protect what they call their “white heritage.”

“We’re not white supremacists. We are simply just white people that love our heritage, our culture, our European identity,” Von Dize said.

Hundreds voiced their opposition to Charlottesville City Council’s vote to remove the Lee statue in Lee Park. They don’t want the Jackson monument to be next.

“I’m here to take part in this great celebration of our heritage and to say ‘no’ to the city of Charlottesville. You’re not going to tear down our statue and you’re not going to replace us,” Richard Spencer said.

Self-identified “alt-right” member Richard Spencer said the protesters are peaceful.

“Nobody here is committing violence. This is a peaceful demonstration. We’re talking about who we are and what we care about,” Spencer said.

Others disagreed.

“I feel as though their saying the same thing over and over again and they’re not here for conversation,” statue-removal supporter Andrea Rowland said.

Arguments and a scuffle broke out quickly in Jackson Park once people opposed to the Confederate heritage supporters arrived.

Police soon got involved.

Both sides left frustrated by the end of it all and are unsure of what comes next.

“It’s an expression of force. It’s an expression of occupying a space,” Spencer said.

While police did get involved toward the end of the protest, no arrests were made.

Good work, once again by Richard Spencer. At least this reporter had the decency to not call him a Nazi. This is an example of much better reporting than we usually get.

Spencer’s explanation of why we protest will fall like seeds into the brains of many of our youth, where they will grow and bear good fruit.

We’re going to lose many battles, but in the end we’re going to come out ahead.

How to Attract a Man – By Ironing, Vacuuming, & Kitchen Skills – 1950s (Color Educational Film)

More nostaglia. These old films I’ve been posting offer a look into America before diversity and political correctness.

The interaction between the mother and daughter in this film is interesting and quite unlike what I picture the interaction to be like today. The girl, Judy, is also interesting for how she reacts to her brother’s friend, a college man visiting the family. She has a womanly interest in him, but is not sure how to proceed.

The film was made to promote electrical home appliances, including the dishwasher, washing machine, and electric hot water heater. It reminds me that nothing of much use has been invented since 1950 other than home air conditioning, and possibly the Internet and cell phone. Only air conditioning offers a major improvement in life since families in the 50s had TV and radio for entertainment.

What has been lost is the trust and the feeling of safety we enjoyed in 1950. Would you trade your cell phone if you could live when there was no diversity, but there was trust between people.

Forgotten History: Confederate President Jefferson Davis’ Adopted Black Son AND Mulatto Wife

JEFFERSON DAVIS MONUMENT, NEW ORLEANS. GONE, BUT NOT FORGOTTEN.

I saw a reference to Confederate President Jefferson Davis having an adopted black son and thought it was a mistake. After all, the “evil racist” is being dumped in the trashcan of history by liberals and blacks.

Conservatives won’t stand up for him either. Only the alt-right holds out and defies political correctness.

I’ll bet none of the cowards who are willing to see our history obliterated knows this story.

As I rounded out my research for this post, a huge SHOCK was revealed. Brace yourself, for if true, every liberal in America should be apologizing to the memory of Jefferson Davis.

Wikipedia

Jim Limber, also known as Jim Limber Davis, was a mulatto boy who was briefly a ward of Jefferson Davis, president of the Confederate States of America. He was under the care of the Davis family from February 1864 to May 1865. His real name may have been James Henry Brooks.[1]

On February 14, 1864, Varina Howell Davis, wife of Jefferson Davis, was returning home in Richmond, Virginia, when she saw a black boy being beaten by a black woman. Outraged, she immediately put an end to the beating and had the boy come with her in her carriage. He was cared for by Mrs. Davis and her staff. They gave him clothes belonging to the Davis’s son, Joe, since the boys were of similar age. When asked his name, he just said “Jim Limber.”[2]

Davis arranged for Jim to be freed from slavery. It is unknown if Davis actually adopted him. There was no adoption law in Virginia at that time, so any adoption would be an “extralegal” affair.[3]
Jim was with the Davises when they were forced to abandon Richmond before the Union Army captured the city in April 1865. When the Davises were captured by Union forces in Irwinville, Georgia, on May 15, Jim was separated from them. Some recounts of the story say this was due to a swift kidnapping of Limber by the Union Army, while other accounts say that the Davises recognized a Union general they knew well, Rufus Saxton. The Davis family never saw Jim again.[2][4][5]

Jim briefly lived with Saxton in Charleston, South Carolina, but was eventually sent north for education until he was old enough to support himself.[6] Though it is mentioned in some of the more sympathetic biographies of Jefferson Davis that he never stopped searching for Jim Limber, this search seems to be recorded only in oral history as it is not mentioned in his voluminous surviving correspondence for the last two decades of his life in which mention at all of Jim Limber is fleeting.

In 2008, the Sons of Confederate Veterans offered a $100,000 statue of Jefferson Davis to the American Civil War Center in Richmond. A life-sized Jim Limber is depicted on the statue, holding one hand of a life sized Jefferson Davis who is holding the hand of his son Joseph with the other hand. The statue was completed in fall 2008[7][8] and while it was initially accepted by the center, the deal quickly fell through and is now on permanent display at [9] Beauvoir, Davis’ Mississippi home.[10]

First, let’s take a look at a photo alleged to be of Jim LImber, the mulatto.

It is alleged at realhistoryww that the boy was the actual blood son of Jefferson Davis.

Did Jefferson Davis have a black son?

Let’s take a look at the demonized man and his wife:

My God! Jeff Davis was married to a mulatto woman, according to the linked story above. The woman in the photo who was Mrs. Davis certainly is NOT a pure Caucasian.

I accept that the president of the Confederacy was married to a part black woman, who bore him six children.

You may interpret this information differently, but for me it utterly destroys the conventional anti-white, anti-South Yankee scribblings that attribute some sort of hatred of blacks by white southerners as a motivation for southern independence. I mean that the First Lady of the Confederacy looked and surely was part black. That would make Michelle Obama only the second black woman to be a first lady on American soil.

NOT THE FIRST BLACK FIRST LADY.

Live Stream from Second Battle of New Orleans

Presently, Baked Alaska is interviewing people on the street. How long this live stream will last is unclear.

The antifa, black lives matter, and the black panthers have not yet arrived at Lee Circle where the patriots are protesting. Although little violence has been reported yet, that’s when the stuff will hit the fan.

Speaking at Lee Circle, Michael Hill, president of the League of the South, said up to 75 members of his group are present at the monument and more are expected to arrive by 1:30 p.m.

Hill, who is from northern Alabama, said the police told them they could not bring firearms and they complied.

“We’ve told our people no firearms and basically the police said to exercise our First Amendment right to public assembly and behave yourself,” he said.

As Hill spoke, a fight broke out near the monument’s base. One of the league members ran to Hill and said, “He attacked me! I landed a shot on him!”

“I think there will be some of this because tensions are high,” Hill said. “But we told all of our people to behave themselves and act in an honorable way and we always try to do that.”
