(National Sentinel) Society: The Alt-Left, which has found a welcome home in the Democratic Party, is set to go all-out following the violence in Charlottesville last weekend to remove all Confederate monuments and memorabilia from the public square, in a blatant attempt to erase, and rewrite, history.
As reported by Breitbart News:
Democratic leaders and activists — including the CAIR Islamic group — are expanding their 2017 culture war against Confederate historical statues and landmarks, boosting concerns that progressive ‘Antifa’ groups and white-power fascists may again collide during mismanaged public demonstrations.
Donna Brazile, who has twice worked as the temporary chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee and who was fired by CNN for leaking debate questions to Hillary Clinton,, tweeted an article on Monday calling for the removal of eight Confederate statues now displayed in Congress:
The Marxist Left media is of course spearheading the push, as evidenced by The Atlantic article Brazile tweeted:
Even without the historical circumstances of the Capitol Hill statues’ arrival, there is virtually no justification for their continued presence. Nor can it be said there aren’t better native sons and daughters to honor. Virginia could replace [General Robert E.] Lee with John Marshall, the legendary chief justice and father of the American rule of law, or Tuskegee Institute founder Booker T. Washington. If it needs a Civil War hero, why not George Henry Thomas? Alabama could select author Harper Lee or jazz legend Nat King Cole. Georgia could replace [Confederate Vice President Alexander] Stephens with Casimir Pulaski, a Polish Revolutionary War hero who died in the battle of Savannah, or a full statue of Martin Luther King, Jr., who already has a bust elsewhere in the Capitol.
In other words, let’s replace whites with minorities is the not-so-subtle recommendation of The Atlantic.
Defending the Confederacy is unconscionable insists the Left, which is mere using this as its latest wedge issue to further divide an already deeply divided country (which the Left is primarily responsible for in the first place).
Some Americans aren’t taking the bait. As NBC News reported, rival white and black organizations in South Carolina, the first state to secede from the Union in 1860, are peacefully debating what to do about Confederate history and heritage:
But then we have far too many ass hats like Richard Painter, vice-chairman of the anti-Trump group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, who are only trying to amp discourse and anger:
Removing all vestiges of a period in our history by applying today’s cultural and ethical standards to the historical period is not the answer. Educating Americans about the real history of our country is the answer, but of course that takes three things the Left isn’t willing to concede: Time, tolerance and understanding.
