“No bill of attainder, ex post facto law, or law denying or impairing the right of property in negro slaves shall be passed.”

Did the Confederacy really want SLAVERY? I’ve hung my hat on the words of the Vice President of the Confederacy, Alexander Stephens in his infamous, “Cornerstone Speech”. But now, let’s review the Constitution of The Confflagederate States.

After reading all the bullshyt from Confederate Flag loving racists, who claim WE DON’T understand history. I offer you excerpts from The Constitution of The Confederate States of America, in regards to their desire to keep & protect their peculiar institution, a.k.a., SLAVERY.

Article I, Section 2, Clause 3 dealt with the taxation and enumeration of slaves, interestingly retaining the three-fifths clause from the U.S. Constitution. “Representatives and direct taxes shall be apportioned among the several States, which may be included within this Confederacy, according to their respective numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole number of free persons, including those bound to service for a term of years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three-fifths of all slaves.”

Article I, Section 9, Clause 4 made slaves a sancrosanct type of property within the Confederacy, with special protection under law. “No bill of attainder, ex post facto law, or law denying or impairing the right of property in negro slaves shall be passed.”

Article IV, Section 2, Clause 1 guaranteed the right of slaveholders to freely transit and stay with their slaves unmolested within any state of the Confederacy. “The citizens of each State shall be entitled to all the privileges and immunities of citizens in the several States; and shall have the right of transit and sojourn in any State of this Confederacy, with their slaves and other property; and the right of property in said slaves shall not be thereby impaired.”

Article IV, Section 3, Clause 3 established that in any new territories gained by Confederacy, slaveholders would enjoy the same property rights to their slaves as in the existing states. “The Confederate States may acquire new territory; and Congress shall have power to legislate and provide governments for the inhabitants of all territory belonging to the Confederate States, lying without the limits of the several Sates; and may permit them, at such times, and in such manner as it may by law provide, to form States to be admitted into the Confederacy. In all such territory the institution of negro slavery, as it now exists in the Confederate States, shall be recognized and protected be Congress and by the Territorial government; and the inhabitants of the several Confederate States and Territories shall have the right to take to such Territory any slaves lawfully held by them in any of the States or Territories of the Confederate States.”

Class dismissed and so is that racist azz flag!

    There is absolutely no reason to associate me with the Constitution of the CSA
    and the only reasons I can think of that you added my name is to irritate and provoke and harass me, and to ensure that people reading this tripe get the feeling that I was somehow associated with the CSA.

    Therefore, a simple request: Please remove the tag with my name from this post.

    Thank you.
    Bill
