The War Between The Blacks And The Whites

My Father, during the racial violence of the 60’s, used to go on about how such divisiveness was going to tear The Republic apart.  He said we were headed for a War Between The Blacks And The Whites, and nothing was going to stop it.

Of course, things died down in the 70’s, and nothing happened.

And my Father passed in 1977.

This doesn’t mean that there are forces who did and are continuing to tear down the Republic.

And this war could still be in the offing.

Although, I suspect it will not necessarily be along racial lines.  Perhaps along politically correct versus politically incorrect lines?

Buoyed by their success in stifling free expression in South Carolina, there are movements to remove the Washington Monument and the Jefferson Memorial.  Because those men owned slaves.

And, to actually change the name of Washington D.C to something less offensive.

oh-my-slave-labor-built-this

I’ve said it before – POLITICAL CORRECTNESS WILL KILL THIS REPUBLIC!

The difference between our nation, with all her faults, and any other is when the Romans defeated Carthage they salted the ground.  The Etruscans?  Those who weren’t assimilated were killed.

This is why one doesn’t see memorials of the brave Carthaginians and Etruscans in Rome, today.

But The Civil War was between sides who were both Americans.  And that’s why we should remember both Yankee and Confederate.

And those who went before who stood for this Constitutional Republic, even if they were part of a society who owned slaves and subjugated women.

It was a different time.  And debated even during that time.

  1. If I expend the energy, I could construct a fairly sound explanation for why we should tear down the Lincoln Memorial, as he was the author of what changed “these united States” into “the United States”. It’s the shame the ‘shroom crowd doesn’t chew on THAT for awhile.

  2. I wonder how it would go over if someone said: “Blacks today should kiss the ground in thankfulness that their ancestors were brought to the US as slaves.”
    I think any discussion would be lost in the rioting.

    What other country would have given them the education, opportunity, tools and political power to go from the disgusting, murderous slave days to todays situation?

  3. It’s PC revisionist history… Ignores the fact that Reconstruction AND the KKK were both products of the Democrats, like Robert Byrd!

  4. Speaking of remembering both Yankee & Confederate, I read somewhere on the interwebs that the ‘C’ soldiers were mandated by law to be treated as “American Soldiers”. (since they really are, in reality)

    Which makes defacing or removing any monument to either a Federal Crime. If true, this could get entertaining. 😉
    Can anyone confirm??
