Washington and Lee Students want Washington and Lee stricken because IGNORANCE!

Fools and their foolish desires

Law students at Washington and Lee University are demanding that the school remove the portraits of George Washington and Robert E. Lee from their diplomas.

Being that the university is named after both men, diplomas have traditionally featured portraits of both Washington and Lee.  Citing the “aftermath of the 2017 Unite the Right Rally in Charlottesville” and an interest in making the university an “inclusive and compassionate environment to all students,” more than 175 students, alumni, faculty members have so far signed a petition calling on university President William Dudley to implement the option to remove the portraits from diplomas.

“The goal of establishing this option is to create a diploma that alumni are proud to prominently display in their homes and places of work,” reads the petition, which also points out that changes have been to the diplomas to appease students in the past, such as “the transition from sheepskin diplomas to paper diplomas.”

So very sad. This is the result of teaching kids history re-written by leftists

So, as I become a Virginian, I must ponder the sanity of the Virginia legislators

I am moving, to Virginia, To Prince Edward County. It is , from my oservations, solidly red, as is much of this beautiful state, the more heavily populated Northeastern section though, is blue, and the Democratic Party Party of Cultural Stalinism now holds both state houses and the goevrnors mansion. And, of course, this means a renewed push for re-education and historical cleansing

Democrats in Virginia’s General Assembly are poised to again attempt to remove Confederate monuments after last week saw the party claim a majority in both houses of the state legislature, according to The Associated Press..

“This is about what do we remember? What do we honor? It’s the right to decide what we celebrate,” said Del.-elect Sally Hudson (D), whose district includes Charlottesville, the site of a deadly 2017 white supremacist rally.

Yes, she is correct, but her words belie her true intent. She sees herself, and those who “think correctly” as being perfectly suited to decide what memories and history is acceptable. This does not bode well for any aspect of history does it?

Gov. Ralph Northam (D), who has said the monuments should be in a museum, has suggested he will sign a removal bill if it comes to his desk, according to the AP. “My thoughts are that the localities are in the best position to make those decisions and that’s what I’ll continue to support,” Northam said at a recent news conference.

Ah yes, the “put them in a museum” lie again. Such moves would lead to some social justice warrior seeing these munuments and immediately contracting a severe case of Outrageoulsy Outrageous Outrage! Why no one could possibly visit a museum with those statues could they? So, then the push for the complete destruction of the “unwoke” monuments would be the only possible step to avoid another case of Offendeditis. The left has been pushing this for decades now, and incrementalism has served them well. And, there is little doubt that a complete eradication of anything that holds even the slightest remembrance of Lee, Jacks, Stuart, Davis, or Confederate soldiers would appease these Stalinists. Today, Jefferson Davis, tomorrow Thomas Jefferson. 

Of course, the people of Virginia are all for these statues to go away right? Ah, no!

A new poll shows a majority of Virginia voters want Confederate monuments to remain where they are.

A poll from Quinnipiac University shows 57 percent oppose removing Confederate monuments from government property across the state.

Only 33 percent supported removal with 10 percent undecided.

Nonwhite voters favored leaving the monuments alone 48 percent to 42 percent. Among white voters, 63 percent supported the monuments while 27 percent supported removal.

 

Isn’t the state government supposed to listen to their constituents? HMMMMMM

Then the Cultural Marxists will come for our memories

A very insightful piece from a tremendous historical blog Battles and Bones

Why Some Young Southerners Still Learn of Their Heritage

While the practical aspects of moving on and recovering after the South’s defeat occupied most of the energies of southerners in the decades following the War Between the States, remembrance was also a very important aspect of that recovery. There was a sense of duty and obligation to remember the sacrifices of the sons, fathers and brothers who had marched so optimistically off to war in the spring of 1861, only to return to find, in the words of veteran H.H. Kerr, “the home he left so beautiful in blackened ruins…his stock killed…his money of no value, and a system of reconstruction which made the horrors of war pale into insignificance.”

That sense of duty often manifested itself in the erecting of monuments, statues, highway markers, plaques and other memorials that dot the South’s landscape to this day.

Why yes, the most important reason for these monuments was, to remember the sacrifice, the valor, and the men who took up arms. The left has targeted these men, and yes, thei memories of Southerners today who still wish to honor their ancestors. This campaign is insidious and unrelenting, and, if left unchecked will eradicate every last vestige of our collective history. And no, the monuments to Confederates will not be the last targets. The left understands that to destroy a nation requires the erasure of that nation’s history and heritage. That is their goal, and some day, every monument, to any US soldier or sailor will become to “problematic” or “insensitive” or “violent” to be left standing.  Some foolish “Conservatives” refuse to see this reality, and even applaud the removal of Confederate memorials.  These are the most damnable fools, for they should understand that the outrage mob and cultural marxists will never stop their current campaign. Cowardice and appeasement will not deter these miscreants. Our memories must not be taken

Yet while memories will fade, we should never let them die completely. I believe we should—and will—continue to teach our children and grandchildren what our fathers and mothers and grandparents have taught us and passed down for generations. We will continue to share our family history around the supper table as we eat harvest that was grown and nourished from the very soil that contains the blood of our kin—blood that was shed while defending their homes. We will continue to share our family history on the front porches of our homes in the fading light of summer evenings surrounded by great trees that were present when our ancestors lived. We will continue to share our family history before a crackling fire in our homes on cold winter nights with our children and grandchildren gathered close around us. We will continue to share the stories, the sadness, the injustices, the glory, the bravery, the love, the patriotism, the loyalty and the sacrifices of those who have gone before us. We do this, in part, so that we might “honor our fathers,” as the scriptures command us. And we pray that our children and our grandchildren will do the same when their turn comes.

More than twenty years ago, I wrote that one day the left call for the total removal of Confederate monuments, and many Americans would have called me a fool. Well, here we are. And now I am sadly proven correct. I also said that our Founders would be next, and, well, I think we see that happening as well. Maybe one day the left, in their tolerant way will demand the bulldozing of Confederate cemeteries. Maybe one day monuments to US servicemen will be deemed too violent, too offensive? Don’t think so? You damn well better think again. Allow me to include this quote from Chief Joseph, it fits our current time

“A man who would not defend his father’s grave, is worse than a wild beast.”

 

On this episode of Wrong Monument Asshole……………

These Leftist agitators are many things, violent, lawless, thuggish, trash. malcontents, etc. Smart? No they definitely missed that train

Or the fact that no one studies history anymore. Confederate monument vandals take aim at wrong Lee statue in Dunn.

They thought they were protesting General Robert E. Lee of Civil War fame. They were off by a little.

“I was surprised that anybody would do that to this museum statue,” Johnson said. “This is not a Civil War museum and this is not Robert E. Lee. This is General William C. Lee from United States Army Airborne from World War II, so I was hurt and surprised that somebody would actually do this.”

Of course, anyone who think defacing a monument to Robert E. Lee is somehow noble is historically and intellectually defunct frankly. No one who has studied Lee would think him worthy of such disdain. In fact any Conservative who would not defend General Lee is clueless. But remember this, when all the R.E. Lee monuments are gone, and all the Stonewall Jackson monuments are gone these miscreant activists will not be sated. They will simply seek out the next target, and every monument to US veterans will be targeted next.

Terrorist scumbag arrested for trying to blow up Confederate memorial near Houstron

Yep, I said terrorist, because planting bombs that could kill innocent people is, terrorism.

Rob Shimshock, DCNF

A Houston man was sentenced Friday to more than six years in prison, as well as a $10,000 fine, after trying to blow up a Confederate statue.

Andrew Schneck attempted to destroy a monument of Confederate Lt. Richard Dowling in August 2017, following the Unite the Right rally, reported AP. Dowling’s unit repelled a Union invasion during the 1863 Battle of Sabine Pass during the Civil War.

A park ranger found the 26-year-old man with duct tape, two boxes of wires and a liquid explosive near the statue in Houston’s Hermann Park. Schneck pleaded guilty to attempting malicious damage to property that received federal funding.

The man could have received up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

It seems he only got 6 years, and will be out to maybe plant more bombs because they offend his maniacal mind? 

A Houston man was sentenced Friday to more than six years in prison, as well as a $10,000 fine, after trying to blow up a Confederate statue.

See where the left’s over the top rhetoric leads? To fanatics planting explosives to eliminate things they do not like. How different is this man from ISIS?

Cultural Stalinists suffer rout in Virginia

Generals Lee and Jackson won some great military victories during the War Between the States. This week, they won another.

The Hanover School Board voted 5-2 on Tuesday night to keep the names and mascots of Lee-Davis High School (Confederates) and Stonewall Jackson Middle School (Rebels) after a monthslong process in which the majority of county residents urged the board to leave the names undisturbed.

Voting in favor of keeping the names were Sue Dibble of the South Anna District, Roger Bourassa of the Mechanicsville District, Norman Sulser of the Cold Harbor District, John Axselle III of the Beaverdam District and Robert Hundley Jr. of the Chickahominy District.

Oh the poor, poor erasers of history must be crushed. Good! They deserve it frankly. Lee, and Jackson were decent honorable men and no one with even a basic grasp of these men would ever think they were anything but honorable.
