A native of East Tennessee, Earl Starbuck is an independent historian and a descendant of soldiers on both sides of The Late Unpleasantness and of Governor John Sevier. His father, who was a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, taught him to love history and the South. Starbuck holds a BA in History and Political Science from Carson-Newman University and an MA in History from Liberty University. He has no connection to the coffee company.
I talk with Starbuck about his petition “Tennessee Must Oppose Vaccine Tyranny” and how state’s rights and nullification can resist federal overreach, but it requires action of the people and their representatives in those states. We also discuss big-government/Lincolnian indoctrination and Southern cultural genocide, compare bondage within today’s godless empire to forms of involuntary slavery, and take many a deep dive down some thought-provoking historical rabbit holes, including a spoiler about one of the most commonly attributed quotes to Robert E. Lee.
In addition to reading, signing, and helping spread the word about Starbuck’s bold petition, be sure to check out his 4-part series on General Lee: The Believer, The Father, The Soldier, and The Educator, as well as his essays “Was Secession Treason?” and “Roe v. Wade: A Mere Nullity,” Thomas Jefferson’s “The Rights of British America,” and M.E. Bradford’s “Original Intentions On the Making and Ratification of the United States Constitution.”
