The next time you watch video of some Marxists tearing down a statue, save some disgust for Conservative Cowards
There is no need to name names. The so-called conservatives who have been coddling mindless calls to destroy public art know who they are. So do the rest of us. These are the reasonable conservatives, the good ones, so ever careful not to be called racist. They had a compromise in mind because they always do. Throw the Confederate statues under the bus and we can save the rest. Well.
Friday night, a statue of Ulysses S. Grant was toppled. Also the statue of a Catholic saint. Do you know who is to blame? It is not the hordes of progressives with ropes and chains; it is every conservative who thought those Jacobin lunatics could be appeased by just tearing down certain statues. It is a metaphor for the fecklessness of an American right too cowed to stand up for itself.
I get it. You see, these conservatives don’t want to be called names. I mean, nobody enjoys that. But here’s the thing: after you write your little op-ed about how of course the evil Confederate statues have to come down, they still think you’re a racist. They just think you are a spineless one.
George Orwell wrote a book once called “1984.” Let me know if this sounds familiar: “Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day-by-day and minute-by-minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”
Beautifully written by David Marcus, and this, this is a dead center bullseye
To these fair-weather friends, I have a message: This is your fault. And you were well warned. For years, those of us with the courage to open our eyes knew exactly where this was going. It was never about the Confederacy, or slavery, or racism. It was always about destroying the very concept of America and replacing it with a Marxist utopia. That’s who you decided to compromise with.
AMEN! Will these fools ever learn? I doubt it. Just this morning, I listened to John Leboutillier, who wrote Harvard Hates America as he opined that we should move Confederate monuments to museums and place plaques beside them to “explain” them. And, of course the explanation would come from a leftist historian, wanna guess how that would work out? And, one day, an activist would see the monument or statue, and become TRIGGERED AF, and the statue would then be removed by a gutless governor, or city council. And if not, another mob would come and well, know how that ends.
Gutlessness folks is as bad as the thugs destroying our history.
