The revisionists of history who want to remove the statues of Confederate war heroes gave the white supremacist scumbags an excuse to crawl out from under their rocks
The Democrats and some Republicans are putting all the blame for the Charlottesville riots solely on the Alt-Right, white supremacists, white nationalists, the KKK and neo-Nazis. They conveniently ignore the fact that counter demonstrators showed up looking for a fight. And they even blame President Trump because of the rhetoric he used during the presidential campaign.
But if you want to put the blame where it really belongs, put it on the revisionists of history who want to remove the statues of Confederate war heroes because, according to a few activists both black and white, the statues are a hurtful and tearful reminder to blacks of slavery.
It’s the removal of those statues that gives the white scumbags an excuse to crawl out from under their rocks. The white supremacy vermin knows that by coming out in the open with a public display of their regalia and flags is very likely to result in violent clashes with their opposition. The white supremacists would hardly attract any attention if they couldn’t take up a cause that is also supported by many decent people in the South.
A few activists have managed to rile up some black folks and white liberals into believing that those Confederate statues are a hurtful reminders to blacks of slavery.
If those statues are a hurtful reminder to blacks of slavery, they should just suck it up and live with it. It’s part of our history, shameful as it may be.
One of my nephews lives in New Orleans and is very liberal. He says 90 percent of the blacks there don’t even know who Robert E. Lee, Jefferson Davis and P.G.T. Beauregard were. To New Orleans blacks the now removed statues were merely repositories of pigeon poop. And so it is with blacks throughout the South. They just don’t know who the pigeons are pooping on, or if they do know, they could care less.
So it’s not the white supremacists and the counter demonstrators who are to blame for the Charlottesville riots. And it certainly isn’t President Trump.
However, those around the president finally persuaded Trump to be politically correct by calling out the names of the perceived culprits. This is what Trump said on Monday:
“Racism is evil — and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.”
Well and good, but that’s letting the real culprits off the hook.
In this case a bunch of agitators and politicians want to remove the Lee statue. It is downright reprehensible to revise or erase parts of our history. These activists are not really speaking for the majority of blacks. It’s the same with the agitators that are demanding that the Washington Redskins change their name. I’ll venture to say that 90 percent of Native-Americans don’t give a shit about sports team names and school mascots.
The white scumbags would have remained under their rocks and all would have been peaceful in Charlottesville it were it not for those that are demanding removal of Confederate monuments. But you’re not going to hear that’s where the blame for the riots really belongs.
