Ezekiel’s Confederate Monument at Arlington Now Under Fire

Sad, but true.

A great man is now being “othered.”

(And we are too.)

A 1989 graduate of the Virginia Military Institute, he is a retired artillery officer in the United States Marine Corps, with time in both the active and reserve sides. He served in Iraq in 2004, and in Afghanistan in 2009-2010. He joined the magnificent OPFOR.com as a guest blogger from the now defunct but never uninteresting Rule 308, where he denounced gun control and other aspects of tyranny, and proclaimed the greatness of the United States.

    What’s fascinating about this is that it appears to be one group of Ezekiel relatives against another–for a man who fathered just one child, and that illegitimately with a “mixed-race” woman, he certainly has a lot of descendants. And they are fractious folks, it seems. The comments from the various groups are the most interesting part of the article.

      Agree on the commentary. It seems each group is having a conversation with itself on Sir Moses Ezekiel, Artist, and Cadet Sergeant Ezekiel, VMI, and Ezekial’s artwork as worthy of preservation, but out of sight, which an artist considers the gravest offense.
