Something Wonderful: Song of the South [Updated with the hidden Disney version]

The south will not only “rise again,” the South never fell.
HT: MarkJohnson199

UPDATE: The perverts who control Disney hid this film from all eyes because racism! Commentor Sykes wished that there was a place on the internet where Disney did NOT keep this hidden gem hidden. There still is a copy at Archive and here’s an embed. At Archive, you can find downloads of this movie as well in case the culture wreckers get to this one. Also at Archive you can find reviews that argue over the film. Of course.

    I don’t know about you all, but I intend to endure this hardship and win.
    No we won’t “vote our way out of this”, but voting is part of the equation and part of way back to normalcy….and I am not speaking of pulling a lever once every four years. It will take a grass roots involvement, as was intended by the Founders of the Great Country and it is taking place right now.
    Stop being cynical! Get involved. There are more of us than there are of the traitors. Stand up. Speak the truth. Don’t back down and never give up.
    And perhaps pray. Pray like you have never prayed before! Your community needs you. Our country needs fighters and truth tellers. Get out there and do it!

    It would be nice if someone would steal a copy of Disney’s cartoon movie and post it on the internet.

    When nations fall they disappear. The South never fell in the historical meaning of the term. It never considered itself as a conquered people; the military victory of the North is seen by Southerners as an immoral and unjustified one. The nature of the Southern man and much of his culture remains to this day. These could not be removed by Union bayonets, though the Yankees certainly tried with their military occupation and oppression they charmingly called “Reconstruction” (1865 – 1877).

    But the South refused to be “reconstructed”. The Northerners finally gave up and, more or less, left the South alone for 100 years. Behind every insult of the South by our “progressives” today is the embarrassing knowledge that the South, even after the North killed 250,000 Southern men, still exists; it remains defiant and unconquered.

      That’s a nice sentiment Mike but that’s not entirely true. Those ideas still exist in the hearts of many of us older Southern native sons but today’s young Southerners aren’t tuned into anything remotely related to ‘The South”.

      • Mike Austin January 13, 2022, 7:32 AM

        It is of course true that youth have a nasty habit of rejecting the culture of their elders. But it is also true that many of them return to the culture that bred them. Take it from Southern boy Mark Twain:

        “When I was 17, my father was so stupid, I didn’t want to be seen with him in public. When I was 24, I was amazed at how much the old man had learned in just 7 years.”

        We have no way of knowing—and scarcely any way of guessing—how many young Southerners will come to appreciate their Southern Heritage. If most reject it, then the South will truly be gone with the wind.

        Know what did em in? Immigration. Influx from other countries and other states.
        I have designed buildings in the south for 40 years.
        80% were homes.
        80% of that 80% were for immigrants.
        90% of everyone in the south is from someplace else and they brought their someplace else baggage with them. I saw the light 30 years ago but it took me 15 years to get out, that was 15 years ago. I’ll never go back. The south I am from is no longer the south, it is a conglomeration of migrants from everywhere else.

        (Ask strangers in Florida if they are a cracker, 99% will answer no.
        A cracker is someone that was born and raised in Florida.)

        Similar has happened across the whole country. Migrants from foreign lands have contaminated everything. This isn’t the country it used to be, though there are little pockets of sanity scattered thither and yon. But the mechanical under structure has been irretrievable broken at the core and cannot be fixed unless ALL of the things that broke it are eliminated entirely. If you have a car with a blown engine along the road with a flat tire, and you put a new tire on it, it is still useless. Unless the cancer is removed entirely there will be no cure. No one wants to face that terrible reality.

        • Mike Austin January 13, 2022, 8:35 AM

          You are, as is your wont, pessimistic. I am, as is my wont, optimistic. You were unclear about your definition of immigration: Was it internal or foreign? A Texan who moves to Florida is, technically, an immigrant to Florida yet he more than likely maintains the values that made him a Texan. And there is more: Since you mentioned Florida, then how does one explain the fact that, for the first time, there are now more Republicans than Democrats there? And those who voluntarily move to the South move there for a reason. What might that be? The South has a reputation around the world for being a “certain way”: its hospitality for one, its culture for another, its attitude for yet another. Blue states are losing population for a reason. Why?

          There is more. The Southern thoughts on government, personal freedom, firearms, “woke culture”, states’ rights and so on are spreading, not disappearing. Especially firearms. Nothing says freedom and independence like carrying a gun openly in public whenever a man so desires—and I know, because I do so. And this is going on in more and more states—39 at last count, and many of the holdouts are considering it.

          As for foreign immigration: These migrate to areas according to their tastes. Many, perhaps most, go to areas where they can live off government handouts—in other words, big Democrat-run cities. This has no effect upon Southern culture at all. Few things say more about the continuing strength of Southern culture than a Mexican immigrant moving there, buying a truck, getting a gun, drinking mint juleps, listening to country music, wearing boots and a Stetson, and voting for Trump.

          Anyone who despises the government in Washington DC, who desires a return to federalism, who desires much less government interference in his life, hates taxes with a red passion, and dreams of separating from Blue State America, is becoming a Southerner.

          • ghostsniper January 14, 2022, 4:53 AM

            What you call, in me, pessimistic, I call realist. Overall I am probably the most optimistic person that ever lived, in spite of the increasing pessimistic realities surrounding us.

            I watched Fort Myers, FL evolve from 1966 to 2006 and the influx of people from everywhere else was enormous. From 1972 to today I have designed over 7000 architectural projects and have learned something along the way. Check this out: in 1972 you could drive right on the beach. In 2004 you could receive a $50 fine for having a bungee cord on your trash can lid. I drove on the beach and my brother received the fine.

            The people from everywhere bring their baggage and in the larger picture that means they scream to the authorities to (“do something!”) about every little thing to where eventually no one can do anything.

            In 2002 I bought a piece of property in an isolated area where humans hadn’t lived for over 1000 years, the Calusa indians. The first thing I did was take my big riding mower to the site and mowed it down and I mowed the 4 adjacent properties all around it. A month later I got a fine in the mail because my property wasn’t mowed. Keep in mind that property has NEVER been mowed before. Also, the county hires planes to fly over and report vacant properties that have not been mowed.

            So yeah, the increase in people of all stripes has caused the amount of rules to increase too. To the point, for my wife and me, were tyrannical. I don’t do well in prison and had to escape.

            The rural road we are living on now is 2.2 miles long and when we moved here 15 years ago there were 22 houses spread out on it. In that time period 9 more new homes have been built, the road traffic has doubled, the crime has tripled, and now it’s not unusual to hear police sirens at night a couple times a week. Also, in the little 4 page local weekly newspaper I am seeing instances where the county counsel is selling the citizenry out in perpetuity by doing things like getting fed grants for low income housing and for expanding access to gov’t services. IOW, the reasons we moved here are being eroded by the same machinations that made us move from Florida.

            The american ideal, as well as the southern ideal are mindsets more than anything else and I own both in enormous volumes and always will, in fact, both are my foundation and drive, but there is no denying the reality that changes are afoot everywhere and they are not harbored by people with the same mindset.

            • Mike Austin January 14, 2022, 6:13 AM

              Are all your observations from Fort Meyers only? They seem to be due to a natural population increase and not because of any thing particular to Southern culture, which was what my writing was about. I would imagine that such an increase could be found anywhere in the US outside of big, Democrat-run cities.

              Complaining because in 1972 you could drive on the beach and now you cannot is like complaining that you can no longer run naked across half of Montana as John Colter did (1809).

              No one doubts that change is occurring, but change has been a part of the human experience for 6000 years. Not all change is bad.

              Has anyone ever called you a misanthrope?

        • RedBeard January 13, 2022, 9:30 AM

          Those are some interesting percentages, Ghost sniper.
          Would you mind sharing the sources of those figures with us?

          I’d like to have that information handy, as I was born and raised a Southerner.

      The Confederate States of America NEVER surrendered. The Army did but our government did not. America has never had a ‘civil’ war. The definition of a ‘civil war’ is two groups fighting for control of one government. We never wanted control of the yankee government, we had our own government.
      My sons fell in love with the song, DIXIE, the first time they heard it and are members of the Sons of Confederate Veterans.

      • Mike Austin January 13, 2022, 12:47 PM

        “The Confederate States of America NEVER surrendered. The Army did but our government did not.” By mid-1864 Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia was recognized as the Confederate government in all but name. Essays written at the time as well as personal journals such as those written by Mary Chestnut make this point clearly. Even Jefferson Davis seemed to many Southerners subordinate to Lee. When Lee surrendered—unless Lee, Grant and every historian since 1865 are confused about the meaning of “surrender”—that was the end of the Confederacy. By Appomattox no one cared about what went on in Richmond.

        “America has never had a ‘civil’ war.” Actually, America has had two civil wars. The first pitted Patriots against Loyalists (1775 – 1783). See the Battle of King’s Mountain (1780) to see how the two antagonists treated one another.

        “The definition of a ‘civil war’ is two groups fighting for control of one government. ” Certainly that is one definition, although I have never heard of a war fought over definitions. Here is more about civil wars:

        “A civil war, also known as an intrastate war in war studies, is a war between organized groups within the same state. The aim of one side may be to take control of the country or a region, to achieve independence for a region, or to change government policies.”

        The Southern War of Independence meets all three of those conditions.

        “We never wanted control of the yankee government, we had our own government.” Having control of the “Yankee government” was absolutely essential to every mover and shaker in the South, a fact which they made abundantly clear time and time again. When they thought they would lose control—and in early 1865 the South controlled the White House, the Supreme Court and the Senate—with the election of Lincoln, they seceded. The South was all about control—especially those 4,000,000 negro unfortunates kept in permanent bondage.

        As for the South “having its own government”: not according to Lincoln. Lincoln treated the 11 seceding states as rebel territory, never as a new nation carved out of the Union. To Lincoln secession was like divorce in the Bible—impossible. And not one foreign nation treated the seceding states as a nation deserving of diplomatic recognition.

        Since the beginning of the American Republic, the South threatened many times that, if things did not go its way, it would leave the Union—odd forms of loyalty and allegiance to be sure. The government always gave in to the demands of the petulant South. Until Lincoln.

        The Confederacy was always a chimera, a fantasy, a make-believe, a pretense. It was never more than an idea. Such delusions of grandeur have always led the careless, whether men or states, to destruction.

        I must add what I have written here many times: I myself am a Southerner. My family fought with Lee almost until Appomattox. My entire family is composed of “Lost Causers”—except for me, though I was one for most of my life.

  • Casey Klahn January 13, 2022, 11:55 AM

    The South was abidingly good to me, full of sweetness and love. Friendly people and attractive women. If a Sa Franciscan or a Seattleite female will knee you in the groin for smiling, a southern woman (I’m talking about the 70s and 80s, now) will tell you to come hither with her eyes and her lilting voice.

    Don’t get me wrong, the people there aren’t perfect. Their service economy is stupid, and the weather is hot and muggy. But, when you can tolerate the weather, there still exists in my memory that small church over the unbridged creek, hush puppies, and come-to-Jesus meetings all week. Plenty to eat, and kindness.

    When you’d pull up to a service station wearing your army uniform, someone would come up and offer you a Coke.

    As far as the Confederacy is concerned, it does give you a template for the new year, doesn’t it? State’s rights and rebel yells. But I hope the hell the next year doesn’t look exactly like that ugly war of 1861-65.

  • Mike Seyle January 13, 2022, 12:30 PM

    Yes, Casey, and the “Coke” you’d be offered might well be a Pepsi, Seven-Up or Big Red. “Coke” was what they all were referred to as, as you know. “Want a Coke?” You could be handed a Hires root beer. As I’ve moved out of the territory, I hope that tradition lingers.

    • KCK January 13, 2022, 12:35 PM

      You’re absolutely right about that, Mike. However, right there in Columbus, GA, they’re rather proud of the drink invented by one their own: Coca Cola.

      • Rob Muir January 13, 2022, 3:25 PM

        Hey guys, outside of the towns the country stores relied more on RC Cola, and the obligatory Moon Pie as dietary staples.

        A couple years back I found an online vendor selling DVDs of Song of the South and I bought one. The fidelity is not great and I suspect it’s a bootleg from tape, but at least I have it. Looks like the Disney goons aren’t overly interested in protecting that particular IP.

  • gwbnyc January 13, 2022, 5:28 PM

    I was taken to see this when I was perhaps five years old, as my mother was raised in the deep south and thought I should know of it. We lived in northern Ohio. She was an elementary school librarian in our hometown. When in high school when other students became aware she was my mother, they’d say, “she always told us a story” while I cringed waiting for some smartass comment- never got one.

    She spoke likely-as-not in old tongue with a pronounced coastal Carolina accent- a frying pan was a “creeper”, work shoes were “brogans”. There was no “g” in “-ing”, “house” was pronounced “hice”, “wasn’t” and “wouldn’t” were both pronounced “wudden”. Misbehavior was met with the statement, ” I’m gonna go outside an’ cut me a SWITCH, hear?” Occasionally she could not be understood by unworthy northerners.

    …so let me tell you, when she tol’ Brer Rabbit, b’die if it wudden right good.

  • LP January 14, 2022, 4:09 PM

    I love the south, and all things southern. My Mom regretted that Disney’s Song of the South was banned, and it would have been nice for her to see this, but she’s gone.
