We are so happy you are visiting us here, at Redneck Party. For a party is what it is! Recalling our genuine humanity from the Battle of Blair Mountain truly helps us find our way today. It is almost 100 years ago that our fellow man fought the largest labor battle in United States history, however, the oral truth story of that event is yet to be heard. There was a family named O'Neal on Cabin Creek, West Viriginia, and their stories of endured hardships were handed down through the family. The stories have sustained many of us when the AFL-CIO did not even mention this historic event on their US History of Labor Timeline!
It's ok! Good folk like you visiting this page won't forget what happened and we will continue telling the stories. The real Party is now for the West Virginia Mine Wars Museum and the Mother Jones Museum are both operating! Think! Just a few years ago there was nothing on the internet accept a few blogs and archived posts.
Here at Redneck Party we want to re-member a body of man that has been dis-membered by oppressors whom Charley O'Neal of Cabin Creek, called "Corporate Master". Yes, the Company Store owned the souls, the Company Schools taught the childern, and the Company Church spoke the "God Spell" or Gospel on the workers.
Yes, Brothers and Sisters, let us rejoice that we can reclaim our humanity and love one another like they did back when. We don't need violence today to start a peaceful, non compliant, way of life. All we need is our reason and we will stand up together so one day we will all get paid. Every life has value and the Coal Miners knew their reward was not in heaven, their reward is being paid right here and right now.
Let us remember our greater humanity and unite again for social system change in America. Franklin Delano Roosevelt said, "Necessitous men are not free men." There is work to be done. The Miners did not win it in 1921; we will win it in 2021 or we ain't having no Redneck Party. Corporate Master don't want no Redneck War; they done had one. They just want us to forget and we will never forget. Time bends toward justice and we will see it through.
