After we lost our war for independence (1861-1865), much of the Upper South was bought by wealthy Northern capitalists for a pittance and the land was mined for its resources by Northern companies. Southerners in this beautiful, minerally-rich region were forced into cycles of poverty. Many of them pushed off their land.
We were economically colonized. Cultural, educational and political colonization followed as the USA exploited the defeated South – just as victorious empires throughout history have exploited hated enemies. This is what the high-sounding rhetoric by Abraham Lincoln and other American leaders about democracy, equality and union actually meant in the real world.
Today’s demographic replacement of the Southern people through Third World immigration is simply the final step in a process which began in the 1860s and was made possible by the follies of 1776 and 1789.
Occidental Dissent has done excellent work in highlighting information about this process of US economic exploitation. Read about it here.
