Destroy history one statue at a time … When all is said and done, it doesn’t matter how many statues they tear down. The history remains the same. The demoMarxocratic party after all, was the party of slavery, the KKK and Jim Crow. And they are still manipulating the people of color through these actions by continuing to call them out as victims instead of helping them to be the great people they are and can be.
A few years ago on a related topic, yours truly described the anniversary of the Taliban’s destruction of a World Heritage site in Afghanistan, 53-meter-tall statues of Buddha that were dynamited out of existence due to Islam’s injunction against idolatry. We now might even describe America’s 2020 statue destroyers as ‘American Taliban’, purporting the difference between the two isn’t so much religious any more as it is to do with aesthetics.
It is demoMarxocrat history that is being erased, so of course they’re all in it for that. Using the BLM movement to get rid of all these pesky black-hating Marxocrats of the past, since they couldn’t or wouldn’t, do it for themselves.
Dare we say that a few years hence, public sites dear to liberals won’t fall to changes in fashion, nor would anyone be led to putting together some sort of agreement where nothing need be celebrated in public; comme ci comme ça. Don’t hold your breath however.
This is passion unleashed, and the DNC and their acolytes are normalizing violence because it’s almost been a month of rioting with no end in sight. Hubris only emboldens them to more violence; as their ideology justifies these acts, so the hubris becomes self-fulfilling.

The current mania for pulling down statues of so-called morally corrupt historical figures is a classic case of presentism: “reading modern notions of morality” onto the past. It seems that those driven to do so may be honestly trying to rectify the “sins” of the past — whether it be colonial conquest, slavery, genocide, or whatever else. How corrupt were these historical figures? Were they indeed much more reprehensible than anyone in the present day?
What did these people actually think in the awful before times when our Western European ancestors discovered the “New World” and practiced conquest and slavery? We are not able to read their minds — only to speculate upon their intent by examining historical documents: the writings, recollections, and stories of those who experienced those days. Indeed, how many of these activists so intent on destroying these representations of the past are fully knowledgeable of these documents that underpin the respect once given to these historical figures resulting in their statuary honors?

[+] … Throughout history, there is much can be learned from both the accomplishments and the mistakes made by those that came before us. Erasing history serves only to throw the baby out with the bath water.
We are supposedly morally evolved for the better now — against slavery, racism and bigotry, conquest and war — yet one open-eyed observation across our planet today would reveal that human beings are practicing these “awful” behaviors almost everywhere in some form or another.[-]
[+] … Woe to a human experience with no history, no memory of either joy or pain. Without memory, we have no understanding. It is better to add to the history we think we know — to unveil the hidden, to recognize and honor the forgotten, in order to make the record more honest and complete. Doing so can inform our work to build a better future’s past. History demands our humble understanding, not our hubristic outrage.[end]

All these white Hollywood stars who “now regret” playing non-white characters in film and television will certainly be donating every penny they made from those characters to rebuilding the black businesses and homes destroyed by their rich white friends they bailed out.
Not so fast, buddy. No amount of reasoning or logic tames the urges of a rabid animal. Only the force of a ballistic projectile soothes the savage beast. The things one has to do to get past the free speech censors.
As an article in my favorite ‘The Federalist‘ expresses it: “The promise of bloodshed coming alongside or following shortly after is an historic certainty. The symbols of a people never satisfy: People themselves must always come next…. A society that believes in itself builds monuments; a sick society does not; and a dying society watches as they are torn down.”
Mmmmm …. Destroy history one statue at a time.
And on that note, time for today’s MAGA Pill – Thank God for President Donald J. Trump – MAGA! KAG!
