Charlottesville: Bad Things in the Offing

I see very little good coming out of this, and down the pike.

In ten years’ time do we foresee a whole United States, or a fractured one? As for me, I ardently desire a whole United States.

But not at the cost of Liberty. Nor, of my heritage and the ideals and places I hold dear.

    VMI should be very careful. Actually the city of Lexington should be careful. Because they are next on the target list of these radical leftists. W&L already has these leftists seeping into their university. The big red bullseye just got bigger. There is a legitimate argument to protest the erasing of history by the kooks who run Charlottesville and UVA. Unfortunately, it was hijacked by the neo-nazi retards and other unsavory groups. Then the communist and socialist groups showed up and then here we are with one dead woman, many injured, and two dead cops. And magically, the ‘media’ does not report about this.
    We are already fractured. We have a left in this country that insists on us becoming a socialist state. The others want us to stick to the founding of our country. Hopefully the later will win.
    It’s not just about confederate monuments. If say they win and all history of the civil war is erased or re-written, it will be on to the next thing. Gen. Custer f’d up the Indians. Remove all statues of US Army Generals at that time. They still to this day try to get the Reagan airport renamed. It never ends for these people and they must be stopped.

      The NYT and Washington Post did not report on 2 dead cops. Source, please? The only reports on the Blue were that they stayed behind their barricades until after all was said and done. Just like every other police force in Democrat-run cities where extremists meet.

        This has been “overlooked” by our media.

    Good lesson to be learned re- what happens when the local .gov is on one of the sides and instructs the law enforcement to treat “their” side accordingly. In this case, antifa was favored and the police were told (and obeyed) orders to let the antifa do whatever they wanted, and even worked against the “other” side by channelizing them into areas and situations where they could be attacked with impunity by the other side.

    I also worry that one of these days/incidents, one of the sides carrying rifles is going to unload on the other side and the carnage will be much worse, giving the .gov its Reichstag Fire cover to do whatever it wants. Interesting times indeed.

      It’s the Southern Poverty Law Center, which isn’t southern, poor, or concerned with the law. Or facts whenever they are raising funds.

      I favor removing the Confederacy and the artifacts worshipped as Confederate irredentism. But where does this monumental effort at anti-American revisionism end? Touring Mount Vernon, children learn George Washington promulgated a false-flag attack to get the UK in a war with France (the French & Indian War) by murdering a French officer. And he owned slaves. Teddy Roosevelt is currently under attack along with rhe rest of the exhibits at the Natural History Museum in NYC. Nathan Bedford Forrest’s remains are being exhumed. And folks don’t know and won’t learn from the news that antifa and the neo-nazis are the children of Karl Marx, but in the spirit of the SPLC, never let a say to smear conservatives pass.
