Hey, y’all. Um, there about a year ago or so I asked the Australians one simple question: “What the hell’s going on around here?” I don’t know why or how what happened in South Carolina happened, but it happened. And it was a racist...that guy was a racist. He hated black folks. I don’t know why. Probably ‘cause of all the hate that’s promoted by the US federal government. But, uh, I’m gonna stand up, I’m gonna stand up for the South. I’m gonna stand up for myself. And I’m gonna stand up for the Confederacy. We ain’t kill nobody. And we didn’t want nobody dead. I don’t know what goes on in South Carolina. It’s kinda like Alabama. We worry about them; they’re, like, our...our...our special needs kids, you know, we worry about South Carolina and Alabama. They’re crazy. But you can’t judge Dixie on that. You can’t judge me. You can’t judge the Confederate battle flag. You can’t judge none of it on one incident. It’s being promoted as: “Get rid of the Confederate battle flag. Put it in a museum.” The president’s on...if that’s what you wanna call him...uh...he’s on TV using the n-word. We don’t use that down here. Jesus Christ, people, if you don’t live here you don’t know what the fuck’s going on. But I’m about tired of it, so I’m probably gonna piss off some Confederate brothers, and I’m probably going to piss you off, too. But I’m gonna tell you the truth.


Down here in the South, are we separatists? Yes! You’re goddamn right. They stole the Constitution back in the 1800s. What part of history have you not learned? Or what’s the fucking lies that you’re gonna believe? You know, I’m about sick of it. It [the Civil War] was fought over the states’ rights, not...not over...over slavery. Lincoln didn’t even care about the black man. But he’s a goddamn “emancipator,” ain’t he? Huh-huh. Read some of his speeches while he was a senator.


And you need to research. That’s another thing. I’m about tired of you Uh-mericans – UH-mericans – not thinking, and just reacting to every goddamn thing that comes up on the TV. You’ve ruined a great country by being stupid, by being apathetic. By believing lies. What we do down here is our business. It’s where we live. It’s our region. It’s our culture they’re trying to steal. I guess you wanna leave out of history that they came down here 150 years ago and murdered all my kin and all my kind during Reconstruction, but I guess that’s okay. Or the fact that, you know, slavery has existed since the time of the Babylonians and the Sumerians. It’s always been there. You’re a tax slave right now! But you don’t care, ‘cause you got a car and a house and a few bills and a credit card and you can eat good when you want to and you can go on vacation when you want to. So, naw, you don’t mind being a slave. You’re a happy slave. Your silence is their consent. You’’’re compliance is consent. You doing things just because, uh, you know, “Oh, I believe it’s wrong, but I’m gonna do it anyway, ‘cause I want to.” That’s why shit happens.


There’s millions of people that this US federal government has murdered. The American flag is the hate symbol, not the Confederate battle emblem. And, by the way, Lee surrendered this flag. So, you know, it’’s... whatever on that. The Georgia state flag – that’s the national flag of the Confederacy. The North Carolina flag and several flags that have the red and the white bar and the little star and the thirteen stars. That’s...that’s the national flag of the Confederacy. But you don’t bitch about that flag. Naw. But let me give you a little bit of history. I’m gonna give you a little bit of history right here. I’m gonna learn your ass about one goddamn thing.


The Ku Klux Klan is a bunch of fools, man. We...we whooped their ass down here. We don’t even want ‘em down here. We don’t wanna be associated with hate, at all. Period. We’re tired of the demonization of our culture and the way things are down here. ‘Cause we all really get along. If you live down here you know that. But you don’t, ‘cause you want to watch the TV, and you live up there, or you live out west or somewhere, and you’re thinking: “Oh, them damn rednecks, they just screwing things up.” Well, fine. But here...but here’s some history right here. It ain’t got anything to do with the flag. The Klan used the American flag as their symbol. When the federal government infiltrated and was trying to promote hate and keep this race war going, THEY used the Confederate flag. THEY used it, not us. We ain’t the fucking haters. Naw, all we hate down here is lies. That’s all I hate. And I’m Southern. So there you go. Ask the federal government why they promote the Confederate battle flag. They don’t want our cultu-...They don’t want anything different. They want it the same from New York to California. They want a MacDonald’s on every corner. They want you all talking plain. I’ve been hearing Yankees come down the Appalachian Trail right down here below me, and they don’t even sound like Yankees anymore. Naw, it’s a cultural...they’re...they’re trying to dissolve culture. They want this one thing. And it’s gonna wind up, whether you want to believe it or not, and, uh, the Christians out there, they're right, y’all know that the One World Government and all that. That’s what you all believe. You know, that that’s the antichrist kinda shit and all that. Well, fine. Whatever.


The thing is, they want a one world government. They want a one currency. They want everything the same. So you don’t think anymore, ‘cause you don’t fucking think. I’m tired of being nice about that, too. You don’t think anymore. You don’t research. You hear something, and you react, and you hate this, and you hate that, and everything’s fucking bad. Well, it ain’t. It ain’t bad. What’s bad is the fact [that] you don’t think.


I’m tired of it. I’m seriously tired of it. Not only are you demonizing my Dixie – the South – and Southerners, and our little symbols of what we, you know, what we believe in, you’re complying to what they’ve been trying to do all along – make you more ignorant. They don’t want you to know anything. All they are is a bunch of greedy fu-... It’s just corporations, man. It’s not even a government anymore. The federal government was bought out a century ago. Look at the industrial revolution. You got everything you want on this little thing right here. Smartphone, uh, your computer, your video camera, all that’s in one one little bitty device, but we’re still on the same gas, isn’t it, for the last 125 years. Think about that! They’re raping my planet. I could give a fuck less about your goddamn politics. I could give a fuck less about what you think. Just look at the planet. They wreck...they rape the planet daily. They...they go to war. They kill your sons with the American flag, and they promote “democracy” around the goddamn world, which means: “We’re gonna bomb you and take your shit.” But, naw, man. You wanna worry about, you know, about hating... That guy that killed them poor folks down there...up there in South Carolina. You’re damn right; he was a racist. He was a hater. But why was he doing it? Think about that. Number one: he was taking Prozac. All the shooters in America have been on some kind of damn mind-altering, antidepressant kind of drug. That’s something we should think about. Before you wanna ban the gun, why don’t you wanna ban the drugs that fucking hurt people. But naw, man, naw, naw, naw. We’re not gonna do that. We don’t want them to be depressed. So they go off, they kill somebody.


But look at the hate the federal government – the United States government – has promoted. Uh, the Trayvon Martin thing. He wasn’t even killed by a white guy, but, hey: “Fuck that. Who gives a fuck about that fact?” But when he was killed, Obama gets on the news and says, “Well, that could have been my son.” Uh, that’s promoting racism. He gets on TV just here today and uses the n-word. That’s racism. You know. He’s half white. But what side you gonna believe? You see, it’s not half nothing. We’re human beings, people. We’re human beings. And without this planet, without this right here. Look at this.


Without that, you ain’t got jack shit. So yeah, man, you wanna get on that TV and...and...and believe that stuff, that’s up to you. Truth is not mine to give you; it’s yours to seek. You’ve got to seek the truth that fits your life and...and whatever, man, that you see. But quit finding it on TV. Quit listening to a government that has been out to destroy everything, everything. It’s not for your freedom. Nobody hates us for our freedom. They hate us because we come there and murder them. All you people that support Israel, you’re fucking morons. What the hell are you doing supporting murder? When did Jesus say, “Support murder”? Never. And about Jesus and Christians, I’m gonna focus in there real quick.


When Jesus Christ was alive on the Earth, He was always doing something. I never found a one verse in the Bible that said Jesus sat down and put his feet up one day. Or that Jesus prayed to God, except for that one time, “God,” you know, “take this from me.” But He...He...He...He sweated blood and cried blood. Now it was supposed to have been in private and it got written in the Bible. I don’t know how that got in there, but...but other than that. So what do y’all do? What do ya’ll do? Y’all do nothing. Y’all don’t do nothing but goddamn pray. You pray: “Oh, Jesus, I need a new pair of shoes. Oh, Jesus, baby needs dance lessons. I need some money.” Jesus didn’t pray to have everything done; He did it. So why don’t you Christians get out there and do something like, number one, stop baby murder.


Then stop this fucking government. Man, they’re not there to help you; they’re there... Minorities are what they make. They create minorities, because without a need, there would be no government. If you didn’t need them and were[n’t] so scared about some bogeyman getting you, there would be no government. Not like [the one] there is now.


I look around me every day for the last couple months and I put myself in front of some very beautiful things. I’ve healed...I’ve healed in my mind, I’ve healed in my heart. I’ve always loved my mother – this mother, our planet. I...I...I’ve...I’ve always loved her since I can remember. It’’s all there was. But...but we lost our way with that. And for some reason I feel like that’s the key. That’s the key. If we...if we connect back to this planet – the planet right here – if we connect back to it, then maybe we’d realize that that’s where life comes from. Like life isn’t given through vaccinations. Life isn’t given through better health care. Life isn’t given through freebies, or...You know, we’re supposed to help our neighbor anyway. Right? So why is the government doing it? When did the churches stop helping people? I don’t know. There’s a man somewhere, he – 90 years old – can’t even give people...homeless man sandwiches. You can’t collect rainwater. You can’t grow a garden. Why? ‘Cause they [the government] have to be needed. And you’re falling for it. Suckers! You’re fucking falling for it. And all you do, you know, fine. ‘Cause that’s it. That’s a good thing about being a separatist. You can separate from everything around you and believe what you want and do what you want. As an individual, that’s your right, man, you can go do what you want. But you’re taking my water. You’re taking my organic food. You’re taking my planet and you’re raping it. Naw, you gotta have a new car. And, oh yeah, this one don’t go through as much gas, but what was it made of? Plastic, aluminum – all the things that kill. You believe the lies about hemp. Just like you believe lies about the South. So, as far as I’m concerned, you’re fucking stupid. And your stupidity is fucking up this planet. ‘Cause without this planet, you’re not gonna have your religion, you’re not gonna have your politics, your voting, you’re not gonna have your kids, you’re not gonna have your house. You’re not gonna have your white picket fence or your new SUV, or you’re not gonna get to go ride motorcycles on the weekend.


N.B. Regarding the amount of obscenities Bill Bunting uses, he wrote in a comment to his video:

“FAIR WARNING...I am cussing...ALOT...but I don't see how anyone can find it offensive when they support baby murder in other countries as well as our own...if my words offend you then fine, that's your right...but don't get on here and talk about my language...quit over consuming and killing my about others again...I find it offensive that yall don't and are worried about some well placed cuss have virgin ears??? are you an adult??? then wake up and quit crying about some cussing”
