The Truth Behind the Crusade to Destroy Confederate Monuments and Memorials



THE NATURE OF THE MONUMENT DESTROYERS 
By Connie Chastain

"The force behind the assault on Confederate heritage is the same force behind the attacks on President Trump. What we are seeing is an enormous psychotic episode, a colossal nervous breakdown by the ultra-left in America because their adored Hillary was defeated.
The left has always been destructive, increasingly so in recent years. But since Trump has been in office -- since late January -- where he has steadily razed the Obama legacy, they've been like an animal in the furious stage of rabies.
These people are not Americans. Leftists are socialists. They are the antithesis of Americans. They are destroyers. Since they cannot have our country and transform it into Socialist America, they will destroy it.
Destroying Confederate heritage is an early phase, a trial run, you might say. They have the same fate in mind for the legacy of the Founders... not just monuments and statues, but the very country they crafted. They want to destroy every aspect of the culture -- Christianity, the family, private property, education, historical memory, our cultural cohesiveness, our very identity as western man.
Western man. Man. Men. The left hates nothing the way they hate masculinity. From "feminism", which is not about equality for women but about hating and hurting men ... from feminizing industry, education, the military, church leadership, the popular culture, the government to the demonization of "dead white males" the left hates virility.
VIRILE, VIRILITY characterized by a vigorous, masculine spirit: manly character, vigor, or spirit; masculine energy, forcefulness, or strength in a marked degree.
Our Confederate heroes were some of history's manliest of men. Even in cold, lifeless bronze, Davis, Beauregard and Lee exuded a level of virility that shames Mitch Landrieu.
The nameless Confederate soldiers in marble and granite standing atop pedestals and obelisks across the South shame the typical leftist male -- the Michael Moores, the Morris Deeses, the brainwashed antifa, the mindless mobs, the spineless and weak-minded men, leftists themselves or influenced by leftism, who run government at all levels. The closest thing these men have to masculine energy and vigorous spirit is hatred. Oddly enough, this is the same fuel that energizes leftist women -- the Hillary Clintons, the Maxine Waterses, the Ashley Judds and the Madonnas -- as well.
As we craft and then implement our counter-offensive in the defense of our heritage -- and our continued existence and the future for our children (make no mistake, these are in the Left's crosshairs, as well) -- it will do us well to remember the nature of our attackers."

Islamic Muslims can kill 3,000 innocent people on 9-11, yet Islam, mosques, and individual Muslims are not lumped in with the radical terrorists.
However, southerns who are rightfully proud of their ancestors who fought the intrusive federal government power that our founding father warned us against, and yet we are lumped in with every hate group that has adopted our symbols for their misuse.
We peacefully plead our defense using long suppressed and forgotten history of that conflict, and it does nothing but it does nothing but speed and hasten their attack on us.
Our founding fathers recognized when peaceful diplomatic efforts completely failed, and knew when a call to arms and action was necessary in order to save what they knew was right.....will we?

It is a Crying Shame that this Country has come to this sort of infighting.

Maybe some of the many multi millionaire rappers/celebreties paid off these Mayors and Councilmen? NAACP couldn't do it but the funnel of money has to come from big pockets. Guarantee the Mayor was compensated with black votes and agenda

They can take them down "physically" but they can't erase OUR minds, hearts or souls.

AMERICAN HISTORY ...IS COMING DOWN BEFORE OUR EYES....CONFEDERATE LIVES MATTER....GOD BLESS AMERICA!

Zotta's Perspective said...

The American version of ISIS, Al-Qaida and the Taliban are all those FOOLS calling for the removal of the Confederate battle flag from a Confederate war memorial and everywhere else. The problem is not the Confederate Battle flag or anything to do with the Confederacy. In South Carolina the Confederate Battle flag flies/flew over a Confederate war memorial. The removal of Confederate battle flag from a Confederate war memorial was/is just the beginning. The left are never satisfied. They will continue to do and want more. There will be a call to remove Confederate monuments and statues, the American flag, slave holders monuments and statues like Washington and Jefferson, street names and names of forts for anyone connected to the Confederacy or slavery. And now they have gone so far as to digging up the graves of Confederate soldiers. Since they are intent on trying to remove anything to do with the Confederacy or slavery, thus revising history, which Mark Levin calls a modern day book burning, what happens then? The flag is a symbol that means something different to different people. People should not get offended so easily. America’s legacy is and more importantly should be the country that ended slavery and Jim Crow laws. If whatever it is OFFENDS a person, have that person relate to why it offends them and use it as a teachable moment, instead of destroying it. ISIS, Al-Qaida, and the Taliban are known for destroying artifacts. Let's not follow in their footsteps.

Their Honor will never be removed,or erased.

Charles Kaltwasser said...

I wouldn't call the barbarians destroying southern statues “socialists,” more like the Mafia。 these Socialismo have little comprehension of Karl Marx。。。 where is the public awareness that Karl Marx wrote to Abraham Lincoln?Or that Karl Marx had friends in Lincolnks’s army?

The NOLA monument removal is financially sponsored by Wynton Marsalis.

It is possible to conquer a people. But, for any such conquest to become permanent their culture, their heritage, and their history, must be erased and replaced with those considered acceptable by the conqueror.

Brian Powers said...

Their goal, which will work if we allow this to continue, is that in 1 or 2 generations from now, our grandchildren and great grandchildren will not have these memories or knowledge of our history, and therefore it WILL be essentially be erased from the minds, hearts, and souls of the people. That is why we can not allow them to continue to take them down physically. They are trying to hide and rewrite the truth of American history.

CSusan Sarkies said...

How does one destroy America? Not from the outside but from WITHIN. No other enemy has been able to destroy America. They have infiltrated America..............i.e. immigration (legal and illegal). They have come with but one purpose. DIVIDE, DESTROY AND CONQUER.

Janet Bullock said...

What IS our "counter-offensive"? I see folks portrayed as neo-nazis by the leftist media protesting at the monuments in small numbers as they come down, but what else can we the people do??

Eric Reuter said...

Their tactic is to equate all Confederate heroes and the Stars and Bars with racism. That is their rally cry, and why so many feckless politicians are afraid to stand up. We lose our history at our own peril. Instead of the reality that the South was fighting a war for independence that was based far more on free trade and economic survival than on a single issue of slave ownership. The leaders of the Confederacy and the soldiers were valiant, gallant men. Not traitors. This comes from a Yankee (me) who understands and respects that we were and are all Americans first. Our history is our heritage.

It appears it's too late not to follow in those footsteps.

In March 2001, six months before the September 11th bombing of the World Trade Center in New York City, the Taliban destroyed two ancient statues of the Buddha called Bamiyan in an attempt to cleanse the country of heresy.
In May 2017 ‘American Taliban’, NOLA, is now tearing down New Orleans’ most iconic monuments in an attempt to cleanse the city of heresy.
Vengeance will catch up with NOLA as it did with the Taliban.

Unknown said...

This is no different than what the Taliban has done across the Middle East and North Africa. They have destroyed ancient works of art and religion. Irreplaceable Statuary and buildings in an attempt to erase them from the history of mankind on this planet. The exact same strategy is now being carried out in New Orleans by the left. I lived in New Orleans for almost 5 years in the 50s and know that many people go there not only for the food but the history and culture of the Old South. That is now gone. Shame on those who perpetrated this injustice.

Nina Marrocco said...

They have been replacing true history with false history for centurie's and they as long as they are in power.

Jean Deaux said...

I finally located a Confederate battle flag and fly it right under my Stars and Stripes here in Colorado. I'll not be dictated to by any empty headed, embittered liberal lummox. And don't mess with any national treasures which all the Confederate memorials are; they are part of our history and represent the sacrifices our countrymen made in trying to enforce states rights.
Who gave you the right to say they are anti-American? You should be prosecuted for destruction of symbols of our national heritage and if found guilty, forced to repay the custodial services that managed them and do time for your wanton behavior.

Garrett Smith said...

It doesn't take a genius to see what is transpiring. For far to long the so called minority and liberals have sought a well organized plan to dis arm and remove anything that represents the old south. from street names to monuments even to the ability to assemble. Anything that opposes their ideas are subject to destruction. What is however permitted is multiculturalism, homosexuality, same sex marriages, shared bathrooms , no borders and the removal of GOD from our society. Social media and a water weak educational system are beneficial in supporting their objective. The term Racism and bigotry are like sharp swords in their hands, unless you succumb to their plan then you fall in the ranks of the undesirable. Soon we can look forward to imprisonment for displaying a confederate flag or having a united effort in the form of a protest. First the courthouse flag now the monuments and the streets then we are next. blame the DNC and the thirteen percent for the destruction of OUR America.

I teach U.S. history in the University System of Georgia. The lack of knowledge of my students is truly shocking. A relatively minor instance, but one that is nonetheless telling, is that of more than 100 students in my classes this past semester, I could count on one hand the number of them who had even heard the song "Dixie."

Jennifer Miller said...

My husband is also a history teacher in a small Christian school up in NH. He requires his students to read certain historical books, watch certain movies, and write their assignments in cursive so that they can read the constitution. Through his love for history and our country we have watched together just about every history movie or documentary available! He is also in the national guard--a man who truly loves his country and I am quite proud of him!

God bless you Mr.Smith, we need good educators in this country. Most I talk to say their hands are bound by the system in which they teach.

Thank you for your post. What can we do about this attack on our heritage? The PC politicians won't lead the fight. It's up to us I guess.

Well, let us put this in perspective. We get on television and curse and show parts of our body during prime time on television that would have not come about if there was television during the 1860s. We can show nude bodies and call it art. But we cannot fly a piece of history or teach real American history. It is a fact that the flag which is seen as the Confederate Flag is truly the Flag of Old Dominion. Everyone believes it to be the banner of the Confederates because it was always connected with Lee's Command. When Lee left the Union Army, he returned to where his roots and heritage was greatest-Virginia. Here his stretch with the Virginia Militia brought him to the spotlight with Jefferson. Lee's connection to Virginia is why the flag is always displayed. The Flag of Old Dominion.
The bases of the Civil War rests in the lap of the North because of their need of controlling the vote in the two houses of the U.S. Government. Even more because of the of the Industrial Revolution and the need to build a tax base for the Intercontinental Railroad, along with a stronger banking and court system. When it get right down to it, the slave issue was just an excuse to use as a front for what the North wanted to do. Look at the situation a little deeper and see how much more the tax burden involved the South than the North. The tax was on exports, and most of the South's cotton went abroad until India influenced the trade efforts. The North did not bear this burden because they imported raw materials to be used in the factories and most products were utilized in the country.
