    Default The American Taliban.

    https://www.abbevilleinstitute.org/b...rican-taliban/

    You don’t see much on the continued attack and removal of war memorials in the news, but that’s the intent of the left isn’t it? Do it quietly but totally. These monuments were dedicated by their loved ones not to the “cause” but rather to honor their loved ones who paid the ultimate price with their lives. The American Taliban seem to effortlessly pulled down and removed these sacred monuments, unopposed by those descendants that should have an understanding and love for these patriots long gone. One would think.

    But no, they come down and are removed by order of leftist City Councils made up of modern day carpetbagger Socialists, “John Lennon glasses wearing” dweebs or “Toxic Feminists” deciding amongst themselves that these monuments offend them and should be pulled down. They understand little and don’t care much of our heritage, all they feel is their sense of self-outrage. In a free society, at the very least there should be a referendum on actions such as these and the question should be voted on by the community instead of a self-appointed censor committee. The approach should be thoughtful and well thought out; instead we have knee-jerk decisions that are irreparable.

    But that doesn’t change the fact that there doesn’t seem to be any will of the citizenry to stand up against these Commissars of “PC Thought” in support for our heritage and history. They have been brainwashed by our educational institutions to hate themselves if they are white, whipped up by the media, and pop culture that what the South fought for was wrong. We as parents and grandparents failed to teach them any different. We’ve failed generations.

    Until a new generation comes to the realization that they have been culturally robbed, which will be too late, not one monument will be left standing. A Sherman-like cultural destructive march to the sea is well underway and there is very little difference between what the Taliban did in Afghanistan to archeological treasures and what the Socialists are doing here in America. We are allowing them to create a totalitarian landscape, denuded of anything meaningful or symbols of inconvenient historical facts.

History has stopped, nothing exists except and endless present In which the Party is always right.”

    ''... I believe that the maintenance of the rights and authority reserved to the states and to the people...are a safeguard to the continuance of a free government...whereas the consolidation of the states into one vast Republic, sure to be aggressive abroad and despotic at home, will be the certain precursor of that ruin which has overwhelmed all those that have preceded it.''- Gen. Robert E. Lee

    How's this for a compromise? Rather than removing the original monuments they should erect new ones. The new monuments would remind everyone that The South Lost The War!

    For example, here is a statue of Robert E. Lee, astride his horse and looking like the conquering hero. Next to it another statue. This one celebrating Lee's surrender to Grant after Appomattox.

    Now everyone with an interest in this matter will have both something they can be proud of, and something that offends them.

    I prefer liberty with danger to peace with slavery.

    I think you understood what you thought I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard was not what I meant.
