Monuments, History and The Far-Left

I predicted this a few days ago. I just thought it would take more than 15 minutes. But the far-left has expanded its attack on Confederate icons to go after our founding fathers and other great Americans. A Chicago pastor wants to remove Washington’s name from its public parks because he was a slave owner.

The odious Al Sharpton and a Democrat congresswoman want Washington and Jefferson banned from public squares. The media mocked Trump when he suggested exactly this in his presser gone awry Tuesday, but on cue the trained seals on the left did exactly as predicted. Boy, is he right more often than not! A statue of Lincoln, (Lincoln!) was defaced in Chicago, I guess because he was a Republican. I guess this person is too stupid to know he freed the slaves. Woodrow Wilson, the progressive icon has been under attack at Princeton. Teddy Roosevelt is in the crosshairs of some. Far-left radicals are not interested in stamping out racism; the are nihilists who want to destroy the country, erase history and banish anything they view as objectionable. This is what the fascists did in 1930’s Europe. This is what ISIS is doing today.

Why stop there? Take all our dead white former presidents off our currency. Rename Washington DC. Let’s destroy all Roman ruins because they enslaved people and sent Christians to their deaths in the coliseum. Lets tear down the pyramids since they were built by slaves. Mount Rushmore? Celebrates imperialists and slave owners…gone. FDR? He imprisoned the Japanese. Custer National Park? He killed native Americans by the thousands. And the Reagan library? The left hates him! See where this is going? To the left all that matters is today and their emotions. Soon they will want to tear up the Constitution and get rid of the American flag. I have an idea, I want Che Guevara T-shirts banned, the murdering communist that he was. See, we can both play the game.

I hope this will end badly for the left. Political opportunists like Corey Booker are taking advantage of the moment. Where were all these people when Obama was in office? Why now? I don’t recall them making a fuss about this, oh, ever before! I’ll tell you why, because Trump is in office. This would have been a massive embarrassment to a Dem president. The US has never been perfect, but our leaders by and large were more good then bad. Their memorials deserve our respect and honoring. The whole spectacle is disgusting.

On Charlottesville Trump Was More Right Than Wrong

I  just wish he had said it better and not been baited by the media. NBC and the BBC, not exactly Trump-friendly, both report that the left came ready to rumble. Unfortunately their reporting is a little late.

Charlottesville Virtue Signaling

There can be legitimate opposition to the removal of Confederate monuments, but the far-left has been allowed to frame it in one word: racism. See, the left is on the side of “good” while their opposition is “bad”. Therefore, their violence is somehow “legitimate”. This is very troubling and will not stop there. We see it in all kinds of issues.

We have something called freedom of speech for a reason. And no matter how offensive it may be, nobody has the right to commit violence to stop it.

The (Literal) Culture War

As if to prove my point, at the exact same time as the left is going bonkers over Charlottesville (civil unrest is far from unprecedented in the US) Yale University is literally whitewashing a building façade some may find “triggering” and a radical leftist NY representative is labeling the NRA as a “domestic security threat”. And we wonder why there is an increase in rancor. How ironic.

Sadly, the same National Review sees fit to attack the ‘alt-right’ and Trump.

Parting shot. I don’t recall the left-wing media expressing much concern when one of their own attempted to murder multiple Congressmen recently.

White Supremacists and Far-Left Radicals Battle in Virginia

And both sides are to blame and should be condemned. However this is not the case. Republicans and conservatives want nothing to do with the tiny minority of neo-Nazis and are vocal about. But Democrats, leftist pols and the corrupt left-wing media either ignore the violent far-left Antifa or tacitly approves of it. Notice the popular media coverage is totally one-sided?

You see, they are on the side of “good”, they are against “racism”, they want “peace”. But they are not. They are anarchists and communists who want power and will destroy whatever or whomever stands in their way. They only want “peace” on their terms. In a world where everyone who opposes the left is “racist” nobody is racist. What happened in Charlottesville in the same thing playing out on college campuses everywhere. It is just that someone died, and someone fought back.

And one other thing. The left’s obsession with erasing images of history that it finds “offensive” is infantile and disrespectful. This is they same thing that communists did in the 1900’s and that ISIS is doing now. Our country’s history is not always pleasant and its actors were not perfect but our past political and military leaders should not be “whitewashed” over political correctness. Today it is Robert E. Lee, tomorrow it will be Jefferson. Mark my words.

The rise of hatred toward whites among the far-left is partially to blame for the state of things:
