Selected photos from my Tennessee/Kentucky trip

I love visiting the South. I enjoy the history, what remains of the culture, and the dialects. For a while it was an independent country, but living relics of that country are getting harder and harder to come by. Even stone monuments are being removed – for he who controls the past controls the present and it wasn’t enough to simply subjugate the Southern people, powerful forces are working to erase all vestiges of the Old South.
I make no claims that the Old South was perfect, but this doesn’t mean I cannot take interest in what remains of it. I spent about two days in Kentucky, and a brief drive through Nashville, after the latest American Renaissance conference. I’ll share some of the photos with y’all.
The biggest attraction in Kentucky was Mammoth Caves, the largest cave system in the world.





Even at Mammoth Caves, we are not permitted to forget the “legacy of slavery” or the “African-American/Hispanic experience”.



At least there were no claims that black slaves built the caves, or that ancient Africans were the first to discover them. But here’s something you don’t see every day:

“IKA” stands for “Imperial Klans of America“. I chose not to trespass. Here’s a view inside:

And here is the road leading to the compound:

Don’t ask how I knew where it was – but it wasn’t far from an old cemetery. You don’t see tombstones like these much anymore:



Those people were clearly very poor. Here’s an old schoolhouse:

And a couple of nice buildings in Nashville:

    I noticed in the IKA complex, the American flag flew top of a smaller Confederate Flag. I’m waiting for the anti-Southern bigots and anti-White goofballs to start complaining about the American flag as a “symbol of racism and slavery and bigotry,” insert full Ed Sebesta mantra here. I know a few kook black politicians already have.

    I’ve never known anyone who was an actual klan member. And I’ve never seen a sign like that before, either.

    Ironic that they call themselves “Klan” and also have a swastika. It is my understanding that Hitler himself wiped out most if not all secret or clandestine groups and societies in GNSWP-era Germany.

    It seems the race is stuck into virtually everything. There is a cockpit and part of the cabin of a DC6 (or 7) at the downtown Air and Space Museum in DC. This was especially interesting to me because, for reasons I just can’t quite explain, I love the classic airliners.
    Under the fuselage section are display cases with airliner china, glasses, booklets, and other memorabilia. One of them shows a cutaway of the cabin. Mom, dad, junior, sis, a pretty stewardess, and businessmen. The placard beneath says, roughly, “Do you notice anything about the people on board? They are all white. No African-Americans…”
    The museum gets a lot of funding from donations and there is a Lucite collection box near the door. I walked in to the office, Tand held up a twenty. “See this? This is a donation. A donation you will NOT be getting. And I will tell you why!” I then explained I was sick to death about absolutely everything being presented in racial terms and that I would not support any organization that plays along with that script. I then put the twenty back into my wallet and quietly walked out the door.
    Oh, and note: the volunteers? Whites and Asians.

        My pleasure! First of all, they got dressed down for knuckling under to the pressure-groups-that-be. Second, I don’t think they expected anyone to call them on it. And third: would YOU want someone in your office – giving you quiet, polite hell – who looks like a cross between an aging Viking and a benign grizzly-bear? I left feeling angry, but within a few moments I was laughing to myself. It felt SO GOOD to NOT keep quiet and take it.

      The Air and Space Museum is a cathedral to government waste. I rarely go since there are many other things to visit in DC. I live nearby.

    The best thing about getting older is being able to say what you think.
