MOST NORTHERNER’S WERE NOT YANKEE’S IN THE 1860’s

Many northerner’s today consider themselves “yankee’s”, and what they do not know is that their ancestors who lived through the war of the 1860’s were 95-98% likely to NOT have been of yankee cultural origins. Following the War to Prevent Southern Independence ALL of the USA was targeted by statist totalitarian control of the voting booths in all States in order to keep the Radical Republicans in control of the Federal Government, and the northern as well as the Southern people were targeted for social, political, spiritual and cultural “Reconstruction” in ways unthinkable in the past.
The fact that SO MANY of their northern descendants today proudly call themselves “Yankee’s” is a measure of just how totalitarian the government of the USA became following the war. Their ancestors would have considered themselves to have been “BETRAYED” by their descendants had they known how accepting their children and grandchildren and g-grandchildren would be to the all controlling indoctrination processes of the new USA government. The government from which the Confederate States seceded had abandoned all the sterling principles of the Founder’s of the USA. The government to which the Confederate States was now far worse than they could have imagined.
Sadly, the indoctrination processes since the period of Reconstruction 1865-1877 have only become more and more harsh and less and less tolerant of the Founder’s views of the USA Constitution and less tolerant of the beliefs and practices of orthodox American Christians. During the 1860’s relatively FEW yankee’s were living outside of the tight New England community which is often considered today as the “Deep North”, and those who did live in States west of the Deep North were largely rejected and hated by the peoples of those northern States such as those in New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, etc.
Southerner’s at that time picked their friends well and had a more tolerant attitude to true diversity and did not wish to change how others lived. The USA outside of the Southern States today have nothing of value to teach Southerners. The rest of the USA has much that could learn from our history and from those who are less afflicted by Marxism who live in the Southern States today.
