The “Compassionate” Left Just Shoots its Enemies

In recent weeks it has really been displayed as to how truly “compassionate” and really open to “diversity” the political and theological Left really is. When all else fails, why just shoot your adversaries or perceived adversaries and then blame your actions on someone else’s actions or words. Of course the Leftists could just say “the Devil made me do it” and that would be pretty accurate, but preferring anything to honesty, the Leftists blather on about how “Trump made me do it” or “the Second Amendment forced me to take action so we could work at getting rid of it” or whatever other canned response they are supposed to give. To say that the Leftists and those who finance their actions are totally despicable is to state the case too mildly.  What those people really are is just not printable in this article so I will leave it to your imagination.

In recent weeks we have noted their words and actions toward Donald Trump. Had those words and actions been expended against Hitlery or Obama they would have been deemed a hate crime of grossest proportions. But, because those actions were taken against someone on the Right politically, they are not only perfectly acceptable, but the mainstream media simply adores them. This is cultural Marxism in living color, folks. This is one classic example of how it works.

That media “useful idiot” that held up the imitation of Trump’s bloody, decapitated head, even though she lost her job over it, is hailed as a glowing example of Leftist “diversity” and, no doubt, that Bernie Sanders supporter who shot Congressman Scalise  and several others this morning will be held up as yet another icon for the deranged Left to imitate. A comment on LewRockell.com this morning noted that “the cold civil war is turning hot.” When CNN, the epitome of fake news, reported on this morning’s shootings all they could say was “the gun kept shooting.” As though, somehow, the shooting was the fault of the gun rather than the man pulling the trigger!

Then there is that play in New York where President Trump gets assassinated on stage every evening. But that’s okay as long as the president is Trump. What do you think the reaction would be if the president in the play were Obama or Clinton? That would be treated as the hate crime of the century and the producers of the play would probably end up in the slammer, but because Trump is the president getting offed nightly it all gets a pass.

And there have been reports via the media, alternative and otherwise, that there could be a possible assassination attempt on Mr. Trump’s life. It’s a known fact that if the Leftists can’t get what they want any other way they are prone to try to remove obstacles to their agendas via assassination. So for them to make an attempt on Trump would be right up their alley. This is how they treat those who would dare to disagree with their version of how things should be done.

When the Leftists and those who finance them can’t get their way in some big city they stage a “peaceful protest” (read that riot)  and they destroy property and sometimes lives. This is what the Left always does. They are unable to create anything except mayhem and destruction–but that’s really what they are there for–as a tool of destruction to pave the way so that those who pay them for the destruction will then have a clear path to construct the “New World Order.” So the Leftists are bought and paid for–political prostitutes as it were. Now admittedly, they think more of themselves than that, but those who pay them don’t.

The shock troops of the Left may well end up starting a civil war in this country. There was a time when they could get totally away with all this evil, and it IS evil, so let’s don’t sugarcoat it with any of those pleasant-sounding Leftist euphemisms. However, that time has probably passed. The alternative media has done yeoman duty in alerting millions of Americans to much of what is going on, whereas, back when Nixon was forced out of office, there was hardly any alternative media to speak of. Now, thanks be to God, it is all over the place. There are many folks that don’t like InfoWars.com but the fact remains that they get something like 45 million viewers every month.  And then you have Breitbart, the Drudge Report, WorldNetDaily and a whole host of smaller ones that, believe it or not, actually expose what the Left and its financiers are doing. That’s the reason why Obama and his fellow Leftists wanted so badly to regulate the Internet–so they could begin to cut down on all the exposure the Leftists had been getting. They absolutely hate it when they realize you know what they are doing because it makes it that much harder for them to pull off.

One thing the Left hates is exposure (Ephesians 5:11), people learning about and exposing the evil they try to perpetrate daily. This is one way to fight back against them, exposing what they do and the reasons they do it, and, where possible, exposing those people that financially  enable them to do it.

There are some Christians that work at doing this. There needs to be more.

How We Fight Back

by Al Benson Jr.  Member Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Years ago I saw a Western movie about how a big rancher wanted to expand his holdings by driving a smaller rancher off his land and taking it over.  The smaller rancher didn’t boast and bluster about what he would do, he just quietly said “I’d advise you to leave me alone, because you won’t like the way I fight back.” And he didn’t. It eventually cost him his big ranch, lots of lost property, and lots of men.

It seems to me that folks in the Confederate and Southern Patriotic Movement have got to adopt the “you won’t like the way I fight back” mentality; because fight back we must, or our children and grandchildren will have no future worth the name. And when I say that I am not advocating illegal action. You can start looking for lots of legal ways to make our adversaries uncomfortable.

I just read an article that said the removal of the Confederate statues in New Orleans had cost $2.1 million dollars. Who’s going to pay for that? Supposedly, private funds were to be made available for that. Let’s wait and see. I have this sneaky suspicion that, when all is said and done,  the lucky New Orleans taxpayers will end up with most of the tab for this exercise in Cultural Genocide. Compliments of a mayor who wanted to please his black girlfriend!

On June 7th someone sent me an article about Forest Park in St. Louis, Missouri, where they are getting ready to take yet another Confederate monument down. They had barriers up and roads blocked to keep people away, supposedly for “safety.” Maybe they learned something from the protests in New Orleans. And the man that sent me this article wrote one of his own for his email list called More Marxist Socialism in action. That’s a good description. This man realizes what’s going on with this removal of all things Confederate–Marxist socialism! He nailed it! In fact, the more you read about the War and its results, the more you can begin to see that, from a Northern perspective, it was really a grand exercise in Marxist class struggle.

I have just finished recording a 35 minute CD that deals with that and hope to have promotional copies to send out this next week to potential promoters.

This was much more than just a North-South struggle and we must start getting our own folks informed enough so they can get beyond that and take a close look at those involved, especially those Leftist radicals that embraced Lincoln and the Northern cause, as well as the people that financed some of them.

One man who wrote sent a list of suggestions along as to how we should fight back, and some of them were not bad. He noted that we need Confederate flags everywhere and a big one along Highway 70 in St. Louis, NOW.  That’s a good idea. Actually we need Confederate flags along many of our highways in the South–all on private property of some sort; big, beautiful Confederate flags that you can see from a long way off. Several SCV groups have been working on this project in their respective areas and have been successful, as you can tell by the flak they are getting from “progressive” groups like the NAACP and others. The flags go up and suddenly the Leftists want to “dialogue” about it. And we shouldn’t buy into that ploy. Dialogue with those people is the kiss of death for our Movement. Those people have been trying to destroy our culture and heritage for decades now and we are supposed to dialogue with them??? That’s bovine fertilizer, and not even a  very high grade of it! Tel them “thanks, but no thanks. the flags you don’t like stay up, and if we catch you vandalizing them then we will see you in court.”

The same man also wrote (and I agree with him here, too) “We need to expose the rulers of the cities for what they do, and for the results.” If people were really aware of the leftward tilt of some of these city and town council members or some of the mayors of their cities, they might think twice about supporting what some of these people propose in regard to doing away with our heritage. All their chatter about “inclusiveness” and “diversity” is nothing more than a way to shut us out of the process and that’s all it is.  I have read about where some of these people who have wormed their way onto city councils are “community organizers.”  Community organizers are mostly communists who don’t want to go by that name. We just had a president who was a community organizer, remember? I only ever had experience with one other community organizer in my life, and he was what they refer to as “the genuine Communist article.” It’s long time past Southern folks started exposing the Leftist connections of those who want our heritage replaced with their own, and with some form of Leftism that our grandchildren will be forced to swallow.

Some have called for a monument project that celebrates both Western Civilization as well as Confederate heritage, and, while that is not a bad idea, most of us realize that our pockets are not all that deep at this point, but it’s a thought for the future. Right now we need to concentrate on getting more of those Confederate flags up–always on private property, and exposing the real nature and origin of our adversaries, whether we do it in articles, books, billboards, adds, or however, making sure we have solid documentation for what we say about them, and finding ways to get that out to the public at large.

There will be more to come later, but let’s go with this for now–promoting both our flags and the exposure of our Far Left adversaries.

So Where is Mitch Sleeping Tonight?

by Al Benson Jr.

Well, the Confederate monuments are all down in New Orleans and it seems that the political and religious Leftists have gotten their wish. There are some out there that are calling for a boycott of New Orleans and I can’t disagree with them. After what has transpired in that city why should any advocate of Southern heritage and history want to spend a thin dime there? You say “Well, after all, it’s a historical place.” That’s true, but after the cultural Marxists get through with their “social justice” romp throughout the city, how much real history will be left? Not as much as you’d like to think I’m afraid.

One of the main instigators of this historical carnage is the city’s infamous mayor, who pushed to get the Confederate monuments removed because, according to some, it would possibly pave the way for him to a possible presidential slot in 2020. And while that is probably true, or at least a major consideration for him, it seems, if you read between the lines, that there are “other” considerations for him also.

Someone sent me an article from a website called The Hayride,  http://thehayride.com  for May 17th of this year. It was authored by someone called MacAoidh, and I have no idea who that is, but it was an informative article. It dealt in part with the crime going on in New Orleans while the police were occupied watching the Confederate monuments being removed.

The article said, in part: “A city with crime on the level of Chicago should hve its leadership occupied with little else. Instead, New Orleans’ lame-duck mayor, Mitch Landrieu is desperately trying to deface and bowdlerize its cultural patrimony in order to create some sort of legacy he failed to earn through governance.” And that’s correct, but there’s more.

According to the Hayride article: “A Hayride source with knowledge of Landrieu’s private life indicated to us yesterday that the mayor no longer lives at home and has moved in with his mistress, a former communications director for the mayor’s office named Devona Dolliole. and that Ms. Dolliole, who is black, has been a personal influence on Landrieu’s dogged efforts to remove the monuments.” Is anyone surprised? And the former mayor, Moon Landrieu is supposed to be estranged from the current mayor over the campaign to denigrate the Confederate monuments. There is more to the article that I hesitate to get into here because it deals with legal issues regarding Landrieu’s fundraisers.

But at least you can see from this that there was more than one reason that Landrieu was so gung-ho to get those Confederate monuments down. No doubt his present “companion” is pleased  with his efforts, regardless of what those that pay his salary think.

Nobody Wants to Talk Much About Seth Rich

by Al Benson Jr.

After having read several articles on the Internet pertaining to Seth Rich, I am beginning to get the impression that, for whatever reason, this is a murder case almost no one wants to talk about. When I see something of this nature I always wonder–why?

One article I read was on http://www.businessinsider.com written by David Choi on May 25th. It had the usual information in it about how Mr. Rich, a 27 year old DNC staff member, was shot in the back in what was supposed to have been a “botched robbery.” It seems Rich was on the phone at the time, had to hang up, and there seems to have been a scuffle between Rich and his killer.

Since his murder there have been many stories out there on the Internet as to what the reason was for his murder. I couldn’t prove any of them one way or the other, however, Mr. Choi’s story noted: “Rod Wheeler, a private investigator associated with Rich’s family, told a Fox News affiliate in Washington that there was evidence that proved the alleged contact between Rich and WikiLeaks. Wheeler also suggested that the Metropolitan Police Department tried to cover up the nature of Rich’s death on behalf of the DNC, an allegation the police department denied.”

Interestingly enough, Wheeler later retracted this statement, telling people he had gotten this information from a Fox reporter. Now I wonder why, if he had gotten this from a Fox reporter, did he then go on to pass it along to a Fox affiliate in Washington? Wouldn’t a Fox reporter already have done that? It just seems odd that he would pass something along to a Fox affiliate that he’d gotten from a Fox reporter. But then, you never know, and in many cases such as this you are not supposed to know.

Also, a couple weeks after Rich’s death, WikiLeaks dumped lots and lots of internal emails that seem to have come from the DNC and there is speculation that at least some of that might have come from Rich. If so, it makes you wonder why he did it if he did it. Again, we can’t say for sure. Did Rich see some things going on he didn’t approve of?

Commentary on a blog spot I read noted: “Rich was shot and killed last July in Northwest D.C. and police have suggested the killing in the District’s Bloomingdale neighborhood was a botched robbery. Funny, nothing taken and shot in the back. (Sound familiar?)”

On the same blog was another comment: “Yeah, then there’s the 32 year old man due to testify about Clinton the next week, found dead of an apparent ‘heart attack,’ just a couple weeks ago. Something stinks in Denmark…” This commentary was posted May 16th.

Sean Hannity covered some of this on Fox News recently and now, all of a sudden, he’s not covering it anymore and there is talk of him being “fired.” You might take each of these incidents separately and not make too much of any of them. But taken as a whole they at least raise some reasonable questions, not that I expect we will ever get any reasonable answers.

The Deep State folks will just dismiss it all as “conspiracy theories” and after they make that statement no one is supposed to ask anymore questions–ever again. Years ago Hillary made a statement about a “vast right wing conspiracy” that was out to get her husband. I wonder, does that make Hillary a conspiracy theorist?

It’s all kind of like the Warren Commission Report of the Kennedy assassination–which is supposed to be the defining document about John Kennedy’s assassination. In all honesty, does anyone believe the Warren Commission Report? No one I ever talked to believes it. And most folks are not going to believe that Seth Rich was the victim of a “botched robbery” either.

If you look at some of the events perpetrated by the Swamp Creatures in Washington that Trump wants to get rid of, over the years, you begin to see sort of a pattern to many of them. As the blogger I quoted earlier said; “Sound familiar?”

Segregated Integration

by Al Benson Jr.

Over fifty years ago this country was subjected to something called a “civil rights movement” supposedly because schools, restaurants and drinking fountains in the South were segregated. We were all dutifully informed by a compliant media that this was evil and “racist.”  Blacks and whites were not able to go to the same schools or use the same showers or whatever. The “civil rights movement” in our day has progressed to the point where boys calling themselves girls are now permitted in ladies bathrooms around the country. You can see we’ve come a long way–but in which direction? But back in the 1950s and 60s segregation was supposed to be evil and “racist” and so it had to be turned around, resisted, and gotten rid of, so we were told.

Having read a little about the “civil rights movement” over the years,  I was concerned that many of those involved seemed to spring almost unbidden from the far left part of the political spectrum, including many of the most well-known among them. Now, before the steam starts coming out of your ears, I am not saying that everyone in the civil rights movement was a communist (although it had its share). There were a lot of good people that got involved in it because of what they perceived as an injustice and who probably had no clue as to the leftward tilt of some of the leaders of the movement. And these good folks were used as window dressing to cover the activities of the more leftist-oriented in their ranks.

If you want a good expose’ of the civil rights movement, and one of the earliest, I would recommend a book by Alan Stang called It’s Very Simple–The true story of civil rights. Mr. Stang, now deceased, was an investigative reporter par excellence,  and dug into a  lot of stories over the years that most “investigative” reporters felt it was better, for the sake of their careers, to just leave alone. Alan’s book gives you some excellent observations on the civil rights movement and its leading luminaries . I believe it might still be available on Amazon.

Another good source is a book by Kent Steffgen called The Bondage of the Free–An examination of the civil rights movement. It was originally published in 1966 and reprinted in 2009 by The Institute for Southern Historical Review in Dahlonega, Georgia. You might try to see if it’s still available on Amazon. Both of these books give you a perspective on this movement you will never get on your evening newscast.

With the aid of the journalistic and political left the civil rights movement was finally able to get the courts and politicians to do away with segregation and integration became the law of the land, with open displays of black students being escorted to public schools to be integrated there by police, and we were treated to pictures of James Meredith being escorted to the University of Mississippi by the police, and the call was ever and anon for complete integration. Blacks were not supposed to be kept out of anyplace and whites were taught to be inclusive–or else!

So time has passed and we have now had several decades of forced integration where everybody gets thrown in with everybody else by federal edict. And at this point, if you are going to ask me if I have objections about sitting next to a black family in a restaurant, I don’t. I have had black friends over the years and, as Christians, we have often sat together and broke bread. But that has been our choice, not the government’s.

However, now that integration has been achieved, I have noticed a rather disturbing trend among many blacks, especially at the college level. Now that they have been thoroughly integrated into society, they have decided they are not sure that’s what they really want, they don’t seem to feel “safe” there, and so we are starting to see articles in the managed media about various colleges where blacks are demanding “no whites allowed space.” I guess you could call this segregated space away from white students. They wouldn’t use that term; they call it “safe” space, but what it amounts to, really, is segregated space.

An article I read on http://www.thecollegefix.com for January 6, 2016, written by Alec Dent–UNC Chapel Hill (North Carolina) said: “Black college students across the country have demanded that they be segregated from white peers,  calling for ‘safe spaces’ on campuses meant only for so-called students of color.” Some might look at that and consider it anti-white discrimination, but then, whites are the one group you can openly discriminate against and get away with it anymore. In fact it’s open season on them!

Demands for this sort of thing have been proliferating on campuses all across the country, with “local” university groups drawing up demands (many of which sound eerily similar to one another) “Underscoring that, students tend t hang out with similar students automatically…” Heavens to Abigail, some of us could have told them that fifty years ago when they were so busy trying to “integrate” all of us. They’ve finally discovered that amazing truth–and it only took them half a century! Man, that’s real progress! Maybe there’s hope for the “intellectuals” after all (but not much).

The article noted that this is going on at Oberlin College, at Scripps and Pomona colleges, and there have been others. One article I dug up mentioned the same thing at the University of Michigan. Another mentioned the University of Colorado at Boulder, and yet another mentioned American University. An article from http://www.frontpagemag.com for May 17, 2017, by Daniel Greenfield, noted that: “No whites allowed in college cafe due to black student demands.” Mr. Greenfield observed, quite astutely, that “Anti-racism is the new racism. Safe spaces are the new segregation.” He’s right on the money.

And so, the “civil rights movement”  has now “evolved” from integration with whites to reverse racism that excludes whites.

Knowing how these agendas from the left work, one can only wonder how long it will be before some brilliant leftist black professor in some college out on the Left Coast will “discover” that blacks and whites are not associating with one another as he would like and he will claim it’s all the fault of “white privilege” and so it will be time for a whole new “civil rights” crusade to begin.

Do you begin to get the feeling that we have all partaken of the scam before and in the next decade or so, we will be treated to a repeat performance?

Good News From Alabama After New Orleans’ Political Correctness

by Al Benson Jr.

Many of us have watched, almost dumbstruck, at the rampant cultural genocide being displayed in New Orleans. The cultural Marxists there, from the mayor on down, have simply run amuck, basically doing what they wanted the way they wanted. To label them as culture destroyers is almost too charitable. I am sure that, along with myself, many others would describe their activities and personalities in language that I would hesitate to have reproduced in this article.

Their execrable attempts at the total destruction of Southern and Confederate history and heritage almost border on the insane–but then, they are cultural Marxists, so I guess that is par for the course.

An article on http://constitution.com for May 20th was quite perceptive. It noted: “The left has spent countless decades attempting to vilify the South by publicly shaming them for slavery that ’caused the Civil War’ when, in fact, the war itself was truly and unequivocally a result of northern lawmakers’ attempts to sabotage the sovereignty provided by states’ rights was the nation continued westward in Manifest Destiny.” The fact that all the original thirteen colonies, north and south, had slaves at one point is never mentioned, nor is the fact that some slave states remained in the Union while Lincoln supposedly “fought to free the slaves.” The Establishment, educational and otherwise, does not want us to dwell too much on such facts, and so, in this regard, in our day and age, most “history” books lie to us.

The Constitution article noted: “In this quest to keep Southerners under their thumb, and under the auspices of ‘political correctness’ liberals the nation over have begun demanding that statues, monuments, and celebrations with Confederate subject matter be swept under the rug or destroyed all together. It is the epitome of revisionist history, and it is a menace to our nation’s future.” And don’t think the cultural Marxists are not aware of that. They are, because such is their agenda. Those people want to destroy your culture and your children’s future, and what’s more, they want to enjoy themselves doing it!

So while they have “made hay while the moon shines” in New Orleans, they have not done quite so well in Alabama. The Constitution article tells us: “Alabama lawmakers on Friday approved sweeping protections for Confederate monuments, names and other historic memorials,…The measure ‘would prohibit the relocation, removal, alteration, renaming, or other disturbance of any architecturally significant building, memorial street, or monument that has stood on public property for 40 or more years,’ it reads.”

The article noted that “African-American lawmakers opposed the bill at every step of the legislative process,  saying it solidifies a shameful legacy of slavery.” This line of bull is one of the few weapons the political left has and they have used it so often for so long that the luster is beginning to wear off the sword. One of those opposed to this bill was Hank Sanders, a well-known leftist from Selma. he and his daughter, Rose,  were instrumental in trying to keep the Nathan Bedford Forrest bust on Confederate Circle in Selma from being put back up after someone had stolen it. They were unsuccessful with that effort, too, but it sure wasn’t for lack of trying. If, as the Constitution article said, “African-American lawmakers” opposed this bill, you have to wonder how many of the African-American lawmakers in Alabama are leftists. Maybe someone in Alabama can do some kind of study on that.

It should have occurred to most Southern folks by now that those trying to destroy our monuments and eventually our culture,  are leftists of one stripe or another–liberals who don’t have the guts to become outright communists, as well as socialists, fascists,  and those who are outright communists, along with all manner of “useful idiots” who, in their exalted brilliance, just don’t know the difference and are naive enough to still think, in spite of world history, that communism is actually an expression of “peace and freedom.” Then there are those trying to destroy our heritage who are actually being paid by certain Elitist groups to do it. I won’t mention any names here, but the head of one (or several) of these groups has a last name with only five letters in it and he worked for the Nazis during World War 2.

Folks, we have got to get it through our heads that these are not just ordinary people with a different viewpoint than ours, people you can sit down and dialogue with over your differences. These people have an agenda that calls for your destruction culturally, and eventually probably physically once they feel they have the power. Their agenda will never be dialogue with you–it will always be your ultimate destruction.

This new bill in Alabama is resistance to their program. They understand that. Resistance is one thing they do understand. Praise God that Alabama has done what she did in this instance. The rest of the Southern states, those not thoroughly co-opted by the left and the Deep State, need to start doing the same thing. If their watch-word is “destruction” then ours needs to be “resistance.”

The Constitution article also noted that the monuments in New Orleans are being removed “at the behest of left-leaning groups.” So you and your culture are basically under communist assault. This is not just a batch of local black folks that want equal treatment at the local level–this is a communist assault on our culture and we had better wake up and grasp that fact pretty soon!

Lew Rockwell on Confederate Statues

by Al Benson Jr.

I read an interesting little blip on http://www.lewrockwell.com this morning, May 19th. It seems that the cultural Marxist Regime in New Orleans is to take down the statue of General Lee on this day. Mr. Rocklwell’s headline said New Orleans would “dismantle” the Lee statue. To me that’s a nice way of saying they are going to break it up, but then I’ve been known on rare occasions, to have a suspicious mind, so I could be wrong.

I will quote Lew Rockwell here so you all can see what he said: “But the disgusted may have a remedy: commission Confederate statues, or buy the discarded, and display them on private property.  In the South, far away from decaying federal encampments like New Orleans.  Create an educational park about secession, Lincoln’s invasion, and all related issues, featuring a first-class museum, library, courses, films, resident scholars, and more. Tell the truth. It would draw international attention.”

Such would be a positive response to all the negative fertilizer we hear about the monuments and our flags. I have read about and noticed across the South, that local SCV groups and others have been buying little chunks of private property, some of them not any bigger than my carport at home, and they have been raising big, big Confederate flags on them–flagpoles 100 feet high with flags 30-50 feet long. This is much to the chagrin of local cultural Marxist excuses for politicians who can’t do anything about them because the are on private property. That is the same principle that Lew Rockwell is talking about here.

I realize such endeavors would take a good bit of money, but it might be something area Confederate groups could begin to work toward as worthwhile projects. And if private property could be purchased in some areas from sympathetic property owners then efforts along these lines could be started on a modest scale and could grow as funds became more available.

My wife and I have friends over near Laurel, Mississippi that have what they call a “little home lending library”  from which they loan books out to local folks who are interested in various subjects. Why couldn’t something like that be done in regard to Southern and Confederate history and heritage? What you would need is a not-too-big piece of private property where you could put up a small building. Our friends’ home lending library is not huge by any means, it’s probably a little bigger than our kitchen at home, and we don’t have a big kitchen. Yet they have managed to get books, many from his personal library, about theology, history, politics, and other subjects of general interest. If we could just learn to start thinking along these lines we might be able to come up with lots of possibilities that could be done locally by a few dedicated people, and they would not have to be as big as the Smithsonian Institute–and most assuredly not as politically correct.

A final question–who owns the “dismantled” statue of General Lee?  Does the city of New Orleans own these statues and what will they do with them once they are all down? There might be various answers to that question depending where in the South you happen to be.

I have been told that the beautiful Confederate monument next to the courthouse in Caddo Parish in Shreveport is on private property and that the statue belongs to the United Daughters of the Confederacy.  I don’t know authoritatively, so maybe someone can fill me in. That may well be true, otherwise the cultural Marxists in Shreveport would already have been there with the wrecking crew, with masks on, at midnight, with police snipers posted on the courthouse, ready to take it down. They’ll probably still try to do that if they can get by with it–legal, illegal, or otherwise.

Somehow, we have got to start thinking along the lines of finding good places for those statues and monuments we may be able to rescue so that we can make sure they are put back up someplace that we have control over rather than some city with weaseling politicians.

Please pray about this, and talk to others who may have similar concerns and there may be things those who want to preserve their culture can do in some areas to blunt the attacks of the cultural Marxists. After all, if the city council of East Overshoe votes to take down the local Confederate monument, only to see it back up in someone’s pasture five miles outside of town in a couple or three months where it can still be seen, what have they gained in the long run except a good chance of being booted out of office in the next election?
