Democrats, Republicans and media foment hatred demanding removal of Civil War monuments and rewriting of American history

“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”

― George Orwell, 1984

The Civil War monuments are a tribute to American’s ability to come together after a brutal civil war that pitted brother against brother, and forge peace through respect and understanding.  In other countries when there are civil wars, there are usually two factions and the winning faction enslaves or kills the losing faction.  But not in America, after that brutal Civil War the Generals were able to show respect for their counterparts.  Both sides had seen kids killed, brothers who killed brothers, families torn apart and a generation of Americans wiped out. 

They understood that the only way our country could be healed was to forge a respectful, inclusive country for all Americans, from the North and the South.  I can’t help but wonder what those Generals would say to each other if they were to hear the hatred today. If you start from a point of hatred what is your end goal?  Will you tear down each other’s monuments until there are no monuments, no heritage?  

Should we forget the lesson we learned from the civil war?  We learned after we fought against each other, “in the end we are one and we will defend ourselves as a country when threatened by anyone.”  Almost all Americans have ancestors who fought in the Civil War and not necessarily on the same side.  Do we canvass our neighborhoods to find out which side we are on? 

That is what this is really about, dividing the American people like they were divided during the Civil War.  I heard one person question “what kind of country allows monuments to the losing side?"  America that is what kind of country.  Do we want to re-fight the Civil War?  From Patrick Buchanan:


America's Second Civil War

“They had found a leader, Robert E. Lee — and what a leader! … No military leader since Napoleon has aroused such enthusiastic devotion among troops as did Lee when he reviewed them on his horse Traveller.”  So wrote Samuel Eliot Morison in his magisterial “The Oxford History of the American People” in 1965.

First in his class at West Point, hero of the Mexican War, Lee was the man to whom President Lincoln turned to lead his army. But when Virginia seceded, Lee would not lift up his sword against his own people, and chose to defend his home state rather than wage war upon her…

Yet, on the militant left today, the name Lee evokes raw hatred and howls of “racist and traitor.” A clamor has arisen to have all statues of him and all Confederate soldiers and statesmen pulled down from their pedestals and put in museums or tossed onto trash piles.  What has changed since 1965?

It is not history. There have been no great new discoveries about Lee.  What has changed is America herself. She is not the same country. We have passed through a great social, cultural and moral revolution that has left us irretrievably divided on separate shores.

And the politicians are in panic.

Two years ago, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe called the giant statues of Lee and “Stonewall” Jackson on Richmond’s Monument Avenue “parts of our heritage.” After Charlottesville, New York-born-and-bred McAuliffe, entertaining higher ambitions, went full scalawag, demanding the statues be pulled down as “flashpoints for hatred, division, and violence.” 

Who hates the statues, Terry? Who’s going to cause the violence? Answer: The Democratic left whom Terry must now appease…  In Durham, North Carolina, our Taliban smashed the statue of a Confederate soldier. Near the entrance of Duke University Chapel, a statue of Lee has been defaced, the nose broken off.

Wednesday at dawn, Baltimore carried out a cultural cleansing by taking down statues of Lee and Maryland Chief Justice Roger Taney who wrote the Dred Scott decision and opposed Lincoln’s suspension of the right of habeas corpus. 

Like ISIS, which smashed the storied ruins of Palmyra, and the al-Qaida rebels who ravaged the fabled Saharan city of Timbuktu, the new barbarism has come to America. This is going to become a blazing issue, not only between but within the parties.

For there are 10 Confederates in Statuary Hall in the Capitol, among them Lee, Georgia’s Alexander Stephens, vice president to Jefferson Davis, and Davis himself. The Black Caucus wants them gone.

Mount Rushmore-sized carvings of Lee, Jackson and Davis are on Stone Mountain, Georgia. Are they to be blasted off?  There are countless universities, colleges and high schools like Washington & Lee named for Confederate statesmen and soldiers.

Across the Potomac from D.C. are Jefferson Davis Highway and Leesburg Pike to Leesburg itself, 25 miles north. Are all highways, streets, towns and counties named for Confederates to be renamed? What about Fort Bragg?  On every Civil War battlefield, there are monuments to the Southern fallen. Gettysburg has hundreds of memorials, statues and markers...

“Where does this all end?” President Trump asked.

America is in peril, there are dark, evil forces who are barraging us with messages of hatred and division.  Our politicians use the media to enforce those messages of hatred and division.  These forces do not want Americans to come together; if Americans come together we will not tolerate the economic slavery conditions levied against us by our politicians.  Our political elite class and their puppet masters are heavily invested in the ignorance of the American people.  From Fabius Maximus:


Widespread ignorance bordering on idiocy is our new national goal….  The ideal citizen of a politically corrupt state, such as the one we now have, is a gullible dolt unable to tell truth from bullshit.  An educated, well-informed population, the kind that a functioning democracy requires, would be difficult to lie to, and could not be led by the nose by the various vested interests running amok in this country.

Most of our politicians and their political advisers and lobbyists would find themselves unemployed, and so would the gasbags who pass themselves off as our opinion makers…  For starters, there’s more money to be made from the ignorant than the enlightened, and deceiving Americans is one of the few growing home industries we still have in this country. A truly educated populace would be bad, both for politicians and for business.

It took years of indifference and stupidity to make us as ignorant as we are today…

If this lack of knowledge is the result of the years of dumbing down of high school curriculum and of families that don’t talk to their children about the past, there’s another more pernicious kind of ignorance we confront today. It is the product of years of ideological and political polarization and the deliberate effort by the most fanatical and intolerant parties in that conflict to manufacture more ignorance by lying about many aspects of our history and even our recent past…

No doubt, the Internet and cable television have allowed various political and corporate interests to spread disinformation on a scale that was not possible before, but to have it believed requires a badly educated population unaccustomed to verifying things they are being told. Where else on earth would a president who rescued big banks from bankruptcy with taxpayers’ money and allowed the rest of us to lose $12 trillion in investment, retirement, and home values be called a socialist?

In the past, if someone knew nothing and talked nonsense, no one paid any attention to him. No more. Now such people are courted and flattered by conservative politicians and ideologues as “Real Americans” defending their country against big government and educated liberal elites.

The press interviews them and reports their opinions seriously without pointing out the imbecility of what they believe. The hucksters, who manipulate them for the powerful financial interests, know that they can be made to believe anything, because, to the ignorant and the bigoted, lies always sound better than truth:

“Stupidity is sometimes the greatest of historical forces,” Sidney Hook said once. No doubt.

That excerpt was written in 2014, “and the deliberate effort by the most fanatical and intolerant parties in that conflict to manufacture more ignorance by lying about many aspects of our history and even our recent past” seems to be the template that is being used to sell hatred and division today.

The dark forces of evil want to perpetuate ignorance because if Americans were to realize that maybe the opposite side has a point and their point isn’t so different from ours, maybe we are not the enemy.  Maybe our government and the two parties are the enemy of a free people.  Dr. Carol Swain wrote about the growing phenomena of White Nationalism back in 2002.  She recently was a guest on Justice with Judge Janine Pirro.  From


Black professor gets the difference between whites who are tired of being browbeaten and real racists

Liberals are blaming President Trump for the rise of white nationalism, but a black professor says the movement started mushrooming 15 years before Trump became president.

Attorney and political scientist Dr. Carol Swain of Vanderbilt University predicted the rise of white nationalism in her 2002 book, “The New White Nationalism in America…  Dr. Swain underscored that white nationalism is different from the racist white supremacy movement, even though the left-wing media and liberals purposely conflate the two.

“I distinguish it from white supremacy because the people who were involved [in the white nationalism movement] were more intellectual,” said Swain, a graduate of Yale Law School. “They were not espousing racial violence or using epithets, but they had grievances. They felt that white people’s rights were being trampled on and no one was speaking up or listening to their grievances…”

Swain said the white nationalism movement took off — long before Trump took office — because whites were being marginalized and disenfranchised after decades of affirmative action and other government programs designed to benefit minorities. 

Adding to the disgruntlement is the constant browbeating by academia and the media — which are 97% liberal — calling ALL white people racist and claiming they have no right to complain about anything because they have “white privilege.” Look around you: There are plenty of poor, underprivileged whites…

This kind of anti-white rhetoric is being embraced by the left.  Dr. Swain said she first started noticing the growing white nationalism movement in 2000…  “At the time, when [whites] were stressing about the racial double standards, I saw the potential for the argument to resonate among young people,” she recalled. “The white community has its own problems. I knew the movement would grow unless we started addressing the issues.”

Swain said we all collectively need to tone down the racial identity politics and racist rhetoric and work together to improve race relations. “We need honest conversations, dialogue where people are listening to one another,” she said.

The last thing the politicians and the media want is for everyone to “collectively tone down the racial identity politics and for the people to work together to improve race relations.”  No, they want to continue to stoke hatred and blame President Trump.  They want to crucify Trump for his comments made after the violence in Charlottesville.  The media and the two parties are enraged that Trump had the audacity to refuse to take this opportunity the further stoke the flames of hatred and division.  From LaRouche Pac:


London, U.S. Media Back the Antifa for Race Riots

Aug. 18, 2017 (EIRNS)—British and American media too numerous to count are backing and encouraging demonstrations of violent American "antifa" groups against President Trump, just three months after antifa rioters trashed sections of Hamburg and wounded hundreds of police during the G20 meetings.

The British intelligence intention of forcing Trump out of the White House remains constant since before his inauguration; but the "Russiagate" scheme has taken some sharp blows, from LaRouche PAC’s mass mobilization around the Veterans Intelligence Professionals for Sanity report proving there was no Russian hacking of the Democratic National Committee.

The British intelligence/George Soros-run operations have returned to the model of their "immigration" anti-Trump demonstrations of last Winter, but now with far more violence. 

In the Republican Party, "Blimps" (British Liberal imperialists) have been coming out against the President: Sen. Robert Corker said he was neither "stable" nor "competent"; losing candidates Mitt Romney, Lindsay Graham and Marco Rubio demanded he apologize for condemning antifa violence along with "white supremacist" violence.

Among Democratic elected officials, hysteria again reigns, with Rep. Steven Cohen of Tennessee putting up an impeachment resolution, one state senator advocating Trump’s assassination, losing Wisconsin candidate Russ Feingold agitating for mass resignations from all government bodies, etc.

Mass "protests" this Saturday in Washington, D.C. and Boston again involve violent antifa groups, against only a small "white nationalist" countergang in Boston and only Confederate statues in Washington.

President Trump’s warning of Aug. 16 is being confirmed, as monuments to Abraham Lincoln have been defaced in Washington, D.C., and burned and partly destroyed in Chicago. The Los Angeles Times on Aug. 15 ran "Who was responsible for the violence in Charlottesville?

Here’s what witnesses say," quoting more than a dozen witnesses completely confirming the President’s characterization of armed violence initiated by both sides, and more often by the antifa groups. Even witnesses quoted from antifa groups confirmed their own aggressive armed violence, along with that of the FBI-controlled "white supremacists..."

The Guardian printed a long political analysis, "The President of the United States is Now a Nazi Sympathizer," by columnist Richard Wolffe… London bookies are quoting up to 60% odds of Trump’s impeachment, indicating the bets Brits are making on this…

Funny thing, I don’t believe the Guardian’s Richard Wolffe criticized President Barack Obama as a “Nazi Sympathizer” when his administration financially backed the Nazi’s violent demonstration in Maidan Square, Ukraine when the elected president was driven out of office with a death threat over his head.  From RussiaToday:


Far-right in US & Ukraine – same problem, different approach among politicians and media

While the recent surge in far-right violence in the US bears a striking resemblance to the situation in post-Maidan Ukraine, it gets strikingly different coverage in the MSM and entirely different reactions from Western politicians.

The ‘Unite the Right’ rally, which was held in Charlottesville, Virginia on Friday night and Saturday, attracted all sorts of far-right activists protesting the city’s plans to remove a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee from a local park.  The removal of the monument was approved in April, but the process was stalled due to multiple lawsuits.

Demonstrators at the march carried tiki torches, chanted Nazi slogans, including “Sieg Heil” and “Blood and Soil,” gave Nazi salutes, and carried various symbols associated with Nazi Germany, such as swastikas, black suns, and runes… 

The neo-Nazi torchlight processions which are frequently held in post-Maidan Ukraine, however, have received vastly different coverage in the Western media – though more often than not, they are completely ignored.  Ukrainian far-right activists hold marches each year on January 1, marking the birthday of WWII-era Nazi collaborator Stepan Bandera, who is hailed by many as a national hero.

A 2015 march, for example, received some coverage in the western media, but the neo-Nazi elements of the event were entirely watered down.  The far-right marchers in Ukraine were described in neutral terms: “nationalists” who chanted “patriotic” slogans, and carried torches and “red and black nationalist flags…”

Other neo-Nazi symbols in the Kiev march also managed to elude mainstream media coverage.  While the article admits that Bandera “was the ideological patron of resistance fighters who fought alongside invading German forces during World War II,” it also describes him as an “anti-Soviet insurgent branded by Moscow as a Nazi collaborator…”

Interesting, are the world leaders demanding that Neo-Nazi Bandera be condemned and Nazi marches in his honor be banned from the public square in Kiev?  From Veterans Today:


All statues of Lenin pulled down across Ukraine

This destruction of historical monuments, regardless of whether they are of Judeo-Zionist Bolshevik mass murderer Lenin or anyone else, should be bitterly opposed as it is part of a crass attempt to wipe the collective memory of a nation. The same thing has already happened in Poland where over 2,000 Communist-era monuments have been removed…

Of course, the Ukrainian government is not carrying out this destruction for any reasons that benefit the people of Ukraine, rather, they are trying to strengthen the hatred of Russia and all things Russian in the minds of the Ukrainian sheeple. Rather than correctly identifying Lenin as a Judeo-Zionist and willing tool of the banking elite, they are falsely associating Lenin with Russia and using the images of Lenin as a convenient proxy for Russia – destroy the hated Lenin, he was a Russian don’t you know?

No statues of the former Soviet leader Vladimir Lenin have been left across Ukraine…  “A total of 2,389 monuments have been pulled down, including 1,320 statues of Lenin. As far as we know, there are no more (statues of) Lenin in the cities – on the territory controlled by Ukraine…”

Interesting, in Ukraine where the U.S. installed Ukrainian government is carrying out the destruction of monuments of Ukrainian heritage, not for the benefit of the people of Ukraine, but rather to strengthen the hatred of Russia.  By falsely associating Lenin with Russia, they bury the truth that Lenin was a Judeo-Zionist tool of the banking elite, just like America’s politicians today.

Our government along with the media are incensed that the American people elected Donald Trump, the antithesis of the globalists.  It appears that the politicians and media have decided to destroy President Trump by destroying America’s heritage.  They must turn Confederate Generals and soldiers into Nazi’s just like the US is falsely linking Lenin to Russia a ploy to incite hatred and division.

Is this the new American heritage our politicians and media are creating?  No heritage, no past, no future. The only heritage the media and politicians want to leave the American people is the heritage of the present.  A future taken right from George Orwell.

“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”
