Statement on Cameo Role as Confederate Officer

I am concerned that my decision to don the Confederate uniform in a Hollywood movie has been misunderstood by members of the media.

Most importantly, the voters of Virginia need to know that I did not speak to a single Hollywood Mogul and/or Bigshot Hollywood Producer during, or leading up to, the filming of "Gods and Generals." (You know how I feel about them.)

I acted in the movie because the Confederacy's role during the War of Northern Aggression will always be part of the proud legacy of Virginia. (I encourage those of you who may never visit Virginia to view the tape and witness the real world of Virginia and America, outside the Beltway, as it once appeared.)

I will not apologize for my decision to don the uniform. However, if you were offended by the misinterpretation of my decision, then I do apologize on behalf of the misinterpreters. My involvement was not intended to be offensive. I would still like to be President of the entire Union, and any insinuations to the contrary are completely false.

-Sen. George Felix Allen

"The War of Northern Aggression" ?!
That term for the Civil War is very old and very Southern. It is now only used by white supremacists and Kluxers.

By choosing to use this term, Allen has sent code to people who believe in white supremacy that his apology is a lie.

Neat trick but you're busted, George!

from southerners...of more than one color.

I showed that song clip to an Anarchist friend of mine, who replied with this:

***

We are a band of working folk, all honest, fair and true
Fighting for our Liberty, in everything we do;
So when our rights were threatened, the cry rose near and far
Hurrah for the Bonnie Black Flag without a single star!

Hurrah!
Hurrah!
For human rights, hurrah!
Hurrah for the Bonnie Black Flag without a single star!

As long as the Government was faithful to her trust
Like friends and neighbors, kind were we, and just
But now, when racist treachery attempts our rights to mar
We hoist on high the Bonnie Black Flag without a single star.

Hurrah!
Hurrah!
For human rights, hurrah!
Hurrah for the Bonnie Black Flag without a single star!

Then here is to our Anarchy, so strong we are and brave,
Like patriots of old we'll fight, our Liberty to save.
And rather than submit to shame, to die we would prefer
So cheer for the Bonnie Black flag without a single star.

Hurrah!
Hurrah!
For human rights, hurrah!
Hurrah for the Bonnie Black Flag without a single star!

****

Which is worse, Mr. Allen; racist sedition or anarchist rebellion?
