EVERYONE SHOULD GO SEE COPPERHEAD the MOVIE! IT EXPLODES the LINCOLN MYTH SUPERBLY! EXCELLENT for HOMESCHOOLED kids for HISTORY and POLITICS!

I went to the 4PM showing of Copperhead the Movie.  I was not disappointed.  It’s a movie everyone should see.  The Abner Beech character expresses my feelings about the so-called Civil War and Lincoln exactly.  Beech did not condone slavery but he believed the war was unnecessary and unconstitutional and openly criticized Lincoln’s suppression of […]

GREAT REVIEWS for COPPERHEAD the MOVIE! GO SEE IT and find out the TRUTH about LINCOLN!

Copperhead the movie, in its first week in Richmond, is garnering nice reviews from several sources. Here’s the Washington Post’s take on Copperhead: The story offers uncommon insights on the endlessly parsed period in history, but its execution sometimes falls short. Both the production quality and the persistent, sentimental soundtrack create a made-for-TV feel. And […]

STILL NO WORD from MD SECRETARY of STATE: WAS GARRISON PARDONED? HE SHOULD BE!

I have not received any word from the MD Secretary of State’s office on the pardon of William Lloyd Garrison.  I wrote this blog post and sent this email on April 17: Dear Secretary of State McDonough: I am a blogger for Virginia Right (www.varight.com) and a great admirer of the abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison.  […]

SHOULD MD GOVERNOR MARTIN O’MALLEY PARDON WILLIAM LLOYD GARRISON? UPDATE: NO WORD YET!

Should/Has abolitionist leader William Lloyd Garrison be pardoned by the State of Maryland?  I am researching this issue as we speak with an email sent to the MD Secretary of State’s office today.  But there is a bit of background: In 1830, Garrison co-edited a newspaper in Baltimore, MD that among other things supported abolition […]

THE ABOLITIONISTS – NIGHT TWO: DISAPPOINTING

I awaited with baited breath the second part of PBS’ American Experience, The Abolitionists.  I thought part one was very good.  But I was bitterly disappointed with part two.  Let me start with what I liked: I think their discussion of the 1850 Fugitive Slave Law was excellent.  The rendition of Anthony Brown back to […]

THE FIRST NIGHT of THE ABOLITIONISTS on PBS was QUITE GOOD and BETTER than I EXPECTED!

I just finished watching The Abolitionists and I will say that it was quite good. I was pleased to see the centrality of faith in the abolitionist message but concerned about the treatment of John Brown.  He was portrayed in a sympathetic light.  But this is early – it is a three part miniseries so […]

LET’S MAKE THIS CLEAR: I DO SUPPORT our OLYMPIC ATHLETES! I WANT THEM TO WIN! BUT…DO IT RIGHT!

I have written and posted some hard-hitting posts on the Olympics.  I like to use words and phrases to get people to read and think (My hero and role model for this is William Lloyd Garrison the abolitionist agitator and he had tough words to say about a number of issues) such as “sports imperialism” […]

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
