One of the more despicable things that happened during 2016 was the movement to ‘purge’ America of the Confederacy. There were those who were so righteous in their stance against the ‘evils’ of slavery and the idea that Confederacy equated slavery. We can thank the liberal left, media and countless spineless brainless politicians for this lie being spread throughout many of the unthinking youth. This misconception proves nothing if but our present generation has not be taught to think but merely to regurgitate that which their ‘educators’, or more properly their indoctrinators, have placed before them. It appears we need a small lesson in history.
First I want to ask what is the difference between the liberal left, NAAACP and many of the Democrat party who promote this purge and the Nazi party of Germany? The problem is that there is no difference. The Nazi party burned books by the hundreds to eradicate anything and everything that was deemed unacceptable and opposed Nazi ideology. This book burning to protect the minds and hearts of sensitive Nazis included works of Hemmingway and Helen Keller because she supported the rights of the disabled. The liberal left wants any and all reference to the Confederacy removed from history because they find it offensive. What I find so ironic is the number of Democrats who are part of this movement. They find ‘racism’ under every rock except for in their own party. The Democrat party was solidified in the middle 1800’s as a party to oppose the Republicans and their effort in abolitionism. So according to their own rational the NAACP, liberal left, media and Democrat party must remove any and all references to any and all Democrat presidents or political figures, especially those prior to 1910 when I keep getting informed that the Democrat party change its ideology making it more in favor of the newly freed black person. Unfortunately people such as Lyndon B. Johnson did not get that memo in that he was wildly racist.
Confederate statues and memorials are a part of American history. Anyone who thinks that the Civil War was all about slavery has drank from the pool of liberal cool-aid and has yet to resurface. There were free black Confederates fighting alongside white Confederates against what was seen as Northern invaders who were trying to take away State’s rights. The North was not as noble in their cause as the left wants to present. The North had to create an emotional issue in order to get the people behind a war action therefore created Uncle Tom and the horrors of slavery. Now I am not here to say that there were not some things that were wrong but I am here to say that the North had no room in which to talk. People of all ages who were put to work in the North in manufacturing businesses had as many risk if not more than the slaves of the South. At least a slave had a value. A child in the mills of the North had no value except for what he could produce. If he or she got killed the owner simply went out and got another worker. Irish slaves had no value. Chinese were thought to be so worthless that they were not even included in census counts. But those of the North who fears that the South would cut off the sea ports and the flow of raw materials knew that the people would not support war based solely on economics. Therefore the ‘great evils of slavery’ became the scapegoat. Do keep in mind that ‘slavery’ had been a part of all history and American history in both the North and the South for over 100 years prior to the Civil War when it suddenly because the great evil. I find it interesting that the same people who are so self righteous against slavery say nothing about groups such as ISIS and areas of Islam around the world which practice slavery to this day.
Being a retired shrink I find people’s actions verses their words quite interesting. The left and NAACP scream about slavery yet promote the Democrat cause. Many of the radicals within the black movement are part of the Nation of Islam yet say nothing about the Islamic practice of slavery. Those of the Democrat party who are so self righteous against slavery also sing the praises of the party totally overlooking how the party voted against the freed black person to have the right to vote or to become a citizen. According to the actions of those who are so against anything to do with the Confederacy their issue is not with the South, Confederacy or even slavery. Their issue is with demanding their own way and to impose their will upon others. In the actions of the liberal left, many of the Democrat party and NAACP there is no difference between their actions and those of the Third Reich. They want to control the hearts and minds of the youth and find the easiest way is to demonize anything which stand in opposition to a very narrow mindset. The Third Reich did not want people to think independently and executed those who dared to speak out. Today we have the ‘educators’ of the left who appear wise but are nothing but fools trying to infest the minds of the young with an ideology that is not based in fact nor history.
I have a Confederate flag belt buckle. I wear it proudly. I refer to it as my IQ test for people I meet. If someone is dogmatic about it being a racist symbol then I know that person is basically too stupid to be able to hold a conversation. Where has our country gone? What are we doing? We have schools and government buildings where people are evidently too confused to know which bathroom to use to they have it where they are gender neutral bathrooms. I guess as they say: Any port in a storm will do. Schools are teaching about transgender to children because I guess they do not have enough commonsense to know what sex they are any more. When people go to fill out an application or get a driver’s license and they have the boxes you check for gender are they going to have a third box labeled ‘don’t know’? If we cannot know what gender we are then I guess we are in a mess. I used to be back in the Stone Age that knowing what gender you were was something that was a fairly simple question. It is kind of like asking: Are you a ‘sitter’ or a ‘pointer’ when you have to go pee.
There was the murder of a young woman in San Francisco by an illegal alien. The President is blaming the Republicans. The city is a Sanctuary City which means illegals can run there and the city has agreed to not enforce any immigration laws evidently. Are we now at a place where we pick and choose which laws to enforce and which ones to ignore? This is insane. What ever happened to being responsible for your own actions? I want to stop this crazy train and get off! When there is a shooting the shooter is considered just a mentally disturbed individual overlooked by the system and the gun is blamed for the deaths. A child plans and murders another child and instead of being called a murderer he is seen as a poor innocent victim of a society that has enforced poverty. Somehow in our nation up has become down, right has become left, and right has become wrong. I had the privilege of working with Vietnam veterans during my time as a therapist. Many of them went to war leaving one nation and returning back to a totally different nation. What they saw then is exactly what we are seeing today. The only difference was that they had the change thrust upon them become home stood still in time in their eyes while gone and they suddenly saw the rapid changes where those of us here have been seeing things change more gradually. It is now just blaringly obvious and it is shocking.
The IRS, politicians and government officials get away with total and complete lawlessness while the average citizen has to fear being called in for an audit and forced to pay whatever the IRS happens to say that you owe. Police officers have to worry about being arrested for doing their jobs and arresting people. Criminals are able to burn down cities, loot stores and destroy other’s hopes and dreams while being called an oppressed people. Our President appears to be more interested in his golf game than the thousands being forced into life as a sex slave by radical Islam and ISIS. Our military has to go through a litmus test before being able to shoot at the enemy while our governmental leaders say that our forces are unable to defeat ISIS. I am totally confused as to just how our nation is able to dress itself in the mornings.
We have people in Congress who are afraid that the weight of the Navy is going to make Guam tip over. We have others who dress like some kind of 70’s pimp and they actually think they look classy. Others make statements along the line of: Who do you think I am…I am a queen. We have a President and First Lady who spends taxpayer money so quickly that they make King George and Marie Antoinette look like friends of the working class. Now people want a Constitutional Convention where they can have the power to change and rewrite the Constitution? I would not trust these people to fix me a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, oops I guess that is now also considered racist, let alone touch the Constitution.
What is it going to take to restore sanity? How do these seemingly crazy idiots keep getting re-elected? At one time we use to have highly literate and well-read individuals in Congress but any more I believe our Congressional leaders need to put down their Archie and Jughead and pick up The Federalist Papers only I am afraid they would not understand the big words in the Federalist. Before these legislatures start making decisions to remove the Confederate flag because it is a divisive symbol of slavery they need to read up on REAL history and some of the soldiers of the south such as “Black Southerners in Gray” edited by Richard Rollins which speaks about the black men who proudly took up arms against the North. Before anyone calls Stonewall Jackson a racist needs to learn that he had over 3000 well equipped black troops under his leadership at Antietam. Issues such as people getting all emotionally worked up and then telling others what is right and wrong was what the Civil War was about and is happening all over again.
There has got to be good people who are willing to run for political office. There has got to be answers yet unseen that would help resolve the total stupidity that is evidenced by the ‘great minds’ which lead us today. There has got to be some way to resurrect commonsense. It is a sad day when a former Russian KGB agent such as Putin tells the world that America has abandoned God. Someone who has a gender change is labeled as brave while our servicemen and women barely make enough money to survive. We send our soldiers off to war to fight the enemy and then after they return they have to fight their own government to get the benefits promised to them. Government shells out countless millions to house illegals while veterans sleep on park benches and in cardboard boxes. I know that all sources of social media are monitored under the name of national security. So I try to be careful how far I push issues. I do know that something has to be done and be done soon. Our leaders with need to get their heads out of their butts and start acting like American leaders who have made an oath to protect the nation and the Constitution. Our leaders need to start acting like leaders and not like spoiled bratty children. Our leaders need to start acting at least like 4th graders which would be a major increase from what they are presently representing. There are plenty of tired and fed up Americans who can at least identify their own gender, know how to basically live within a budgeted and limited income, and who truly love and care about our country who demand that people grow up and start acting like leaders. King George learned that he could only push people so far. He learned that you can only ride on one’s high horse so long before getting knocked off of that horse. The people have shown great restraint thus far. Please, dear supposed leaders of this nation, learn from history!
There comes a point in time in which a person must seriously look at Barack Obama and wonder what side of America he is on. This man has shown actions which seriously draw into question any form of ethics. He has an agenda and nothing is going to get in the way of that agenda. He has proven that he is willing to use anything to push that agenda. He made promises to the more conservative Democrats in order to get them to vote for his Affordable Health Care Act merely to break those promises immediately after the bill was passed. He has a clear agenda to promote and support Islam at all cost even to where an Islamic terrorist attack at Fort Hood is called workplace violence. A woman is beheaded at the food plant where she worked by an Islamic convert simply because she refuses to convert to Islam and again it is called workplace violence. While this act was solely because she was a Christian and did not want to become a Muslim it was never called a hate crime. Obama has an agenda of promoting black issues even if it goes against law restrictions as he encourages the rioters of Ferguson to ‘hold the course’. Obama also uses any and all major and emotionally charged shooting events to push his anti-gun agenda. As America is under threat from terrorists both within our shores as well as abroad, Obama still drives his anti-gun push to disarm law abiding citizens. Personally, I cannot remember neither during my life time nor in my study of American history, any President that was more divisive to America or that sought to erode America’s safety. This President appears to want American totally dependent upon the government for all acts of safety and security. Any preliminary review of history should see major danger signs over this type of thinking and actions by a political leader. I have compared Obama to Adolf Hitler many times. There are those who immediately dismiss this comparison but historically it must be reviewed. Germany was a government elected by the people. Hitler did not take over the government by force from a nobody to being the dictator he became. But he used the system to his advantage. He removed the element of private gun ownership where a citizen could own firearms. This was not the practice prior to Hitler getting into power. It was again something that was eroded away with time a little bit at a time. It was done in a manner in which the people welcomed it as a sign that people would now be safer without private firearms. In so many ways Obama is taking plays directly out of the Adolf Hitler play book.
Americans must wake up to Barack Obama. He has been open to his plans and agenda but the media has failed their oath and the people by not doing their jobs and bringing things to the surface. Obama has made it clear in his books that his plan is total socialism and communistic government. He is a racial radical and made it open in his writing. He was openly admitted as a foreign student yet nothing was made of this which would have disqualified him from the office of the President. This is important because if the Constitution is able to be by-passed in this matter then the Constitution becomes null and void. Obama has made actions to open the doors for the millions of illegals in this country which would basically open the borders. This action has never been reviewed regarding cost or effect upon America. The only actions regarding critical thinking is to demonize those who are opposed to the plan as being racists. America is in a very dangerous position. With the flood of millions of illegal immigrants into America poses a major threat of a collapse of multiple systems from law enforcement to social programs to medical availability. Once the local systems fail then the door is wide open for federal programs to take over. History is posed to repeat itself.
People need to rapidly wake up to the truth that they have been sold a bill of goods and that those presently in power do not have America’s best in mind. They have an agenda and that agenda is not in America’s favor. The present Democrat party has been taken over by major players in socialism and Marxism and has a goal to make America into a socialist country. The problem with socialism is that it does not work. People must start thinking for themselves. The present political arena is not the politics of our grandfathers. While I am not excited about any party and believe that a good and ethical politician is basically a death wish because the corrupt system cannot survive with an ethical leader, it is clear that the present day Democrat Party does not have American interest at its core. People must wake up before it is too late. If we do not learn from history then we are doomed to repeat it.
