It seems like an almost weekly mantra that liberal groups will announce a statue of a Civil War Confederate soldier that they want to tear down whether he was a slave owner or not. Any given statue may be commemorating a local soldier who was just fighting to protect his own family and home from the destruction of Union armies as they marched through the south during the Civil War, and the remembered soldier may have had no interest in slavery at all.
If liberals continue with their destructive efforts toward every statue they see, it won’t be long until these hated monuments to the Confederacy will be a thing of the past and then there will be no more bronze memories to refresh their hate. Having symbols of past wrong-doings can be valuable as reminders of things to not do again. But the deranged American left is so full of hate and so desirous of regaining the power they had under Barack Obama and lost when Hillary was defeated at the ballot box, that they can’t think logically and sensibly in the new world of Trump and his attempts to return the United States to constitutional operation and protection once again.
Liberals forget that there were black slave owners in America as well as white ones, so owning a slave in early America had nothing to do with racism, it had to do with economics and what was acceptable at the time. The reason the slaves were in America was that blacks in Africa had no problem with enslaving members of other tribes, and in the latter days of the era they were able to make money by selling the slaves outside of Africa and realize a greater profit.
One very important thing, though, has escaped the enraged left. With their hate of Trump they have forgotten that the south that they so hate was run by Democrats who had strong ties with the KKK. Old Democrat heroes like Al Gore’s father, and Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia, who was a leader of the KKK and has many monuments and highways with his name on them, were until recently worshipped as strong supporters of Democrat causes and were recently praised by the likes of Hillary Clinton. So are Democrats prepared to erase Byrd’s name from these commemorations and his memory from the tales of the Democrat party they’re members of, or will they regain some sense and begin acting responsibly again?
It almost looks like modern day Democrat radicals are risking being called domestic terrorists with their threats to destroy statues, including those of Lincoln and Washington, and their constant threats to our constitution and America’s proud tradition of rule of law. Considering the destruction liberals are doing to America, no terrorist could do more damage to our way of life and to our nation than Trump-hating Democrats are doing.
