Sam Francis Columns From TownHall, 2000–Still Relevant


Nicholas Stix’s latest post Overheard from Sam Francis’ Grave: “I Told You So, You F—–g Fools!”, included a link to a column by the late Sam Francis  in which Sam wrote

Just over a year ago, in a column about the Confederate Flag controversy in South Carolina, I wrote the following sentences: “… the blunt truth is that racial slavery existed for a far longer time under the American flag than under the brief four years of the Confederacy. If the NAACP denounces the Confederate flag today for its symbolization of slavery, it can far more easily denounce Old Glory tomorrow for the same reason. Don`t bet your battle flag they won`t do it either, or that the political and business elites that cave in to them on the Confederate banner will stand firm on the American flag.”[Enemies, Not Friends, Of Confederate Flag Want War, May 5, 2000]

The link goes to an Archive.org version of Sam Francis’s TownHall.com column, from before VDARE.com existed. In 2005, I noted that it had gone from TownHall.com’s online archive, and provided a link.

Here’s a complete list of columns from the past. Many of them have grown only more relevant over time. I should say that the titles are not very descriptive of the content. That’s because Sam, as a columnist, expected people to open the paper to his column, rather than clicking on a link. Possibly the mild titles were a form of what TV writers call Getting Crap Past the Radar.

For example, U.S. practices double standards on human rights is about the victimization of South African whites and Americans reinvent their own government in Arizona is about the beginning or what later became the Minutemen movement.
