Posted on 08/26/2017 9:13:55 AM PDT by Lazamataz
A curious madness has swept the American left as of late: There is a hatred and a desire to tear down every monument and statue that 'offends' them.
Leaving aside the fact that there is no American right to remain unoffended, what started as a focus on Confederate statues has spread to every manner of marker or memorial.
Let us consider:
If the name of a horse owned by Robert E. Lee is now forbidden, I shudder to think what comes next. Will the girl's names of Georgia and Virginia be stricken from the list of acceptable names, because those States joined the Confederacy? Will Mason canning jars be banned, because they remind someone -- somewhere -- of the Mason-Dixon line? Will flocks of geese, flying south for the winter, be shot out of the sky by crazed leftists, because "South" is now an expletive?
To the left, I say this: The comparison of your behavior to the behavior of MiniTruth (the Ministry of propaganda in the novel '1984',) is an obvious one. Further, to strike the statues that you object to makes you no different than ISIS, who regards any monument not directed towards the furtherance of Islam a "Haram" -- or forbidden -- thing. Finally, by deleting any statue of a historical figure, you diminish the publics' awareness of history -- and in so doing, increase the chance we will repeat that history. Perhaps these are your true goals, but if they are not, then I suggest you stop directing your rage to inanimate objects.
Besides, I would add, not even people of color share your priorities. In a recent poll, it was shown that Black Americans do not want Confederate statues removed.
This all started with the hysterical overreaction to the existence of the Confederate battle flag that occured after it was found that Dylann Root, a shooter who attacked a South Carolina church posed in one picture with such a flag. I wrote an editorial about that topic. I was not yet aware just how far this hatred of inanimate objects would go.
In conclusion, I would like to remind the American left that the urge to destroy inanimate objects that they do not favor will inevitably become an urge to destroy the people they do not like.
And there begins the Fascism and tyranny of which you so routinely, and inaccurately, accuse President Donald Trump.

It's only the ignorance of the MSM that permits wall-to-wall coverage of these incoherent activities and inane demands.
You've got this moron----Dirty Democrat NY Cong Yvette Clarke----undermining the US government---tearing down Confederate statues (to switch the focus from her crimes).
This idiot---NY Democrat Cong Yvette Clarke--- actually approved a $120,000 "write-off" of tax-paid tech Equipment Linked To the treasonous Paki/Awan clan.
AND GET THS The missing govt-issue tax-paid devices included many iPhones and iPads. At $800 each, Cong Yvette Clarke's $120,000 write-off would force taxpayers to pay for 150 electronic items for her staff of 16......that's about 10 iPhones and iPads each.
DIRTY DEMOCRAT CLARKE'S HYPOCRISY IS JAW-DROPPING.
Democrat Cong Yvette Clarke's payroll records indicate she has 16 employees......why did Cong Clarke need so many electronics for that small staff? (smirk--- another way pols steal from taxpayers is one conclusion).
According to ace reporting by The Daily Caller, her chief of staff (who Cong Clarke directs) casually signed off on what appears to be a theft ring operating inside the Democrat Congressional Caucus. The facts suggest the Awan gang was running the oldest of scams......selling computer gear out the back door after first reporting it stolen to authorities. (hat tip The Daily Caller)
Cong Yvette Clarke describes herself as a "Caribbean-American."
Remember, taxpayers.....dirty Democrat Cong Yvette Clarke's 120,000 dollar "write off" is JUST ONE of the Dmocrats the Paki clan IT'ed for.
None of the 80 odd Democrats the Paki clan IT'ed have been audited for similar financing scams.
And if more than one Democrat did the Yvette Clarke Write-off Act, this indicates "organized crime".....they should all be prosecuted under RICO.
Curious madness indeed. Those statues have been there for 100 years, and never bothered anybody. Now, all of a sudden, they all have to come down? Curious.
Democrats have had success in mobilizing mob mentality. They will continue to push and push this until it runs its course, whenever that may be.
They have nothing else except to move further left as suggested by Pocahontas.
Hopefully, that move will lead off a cliff before more damage can be done. It’s sad and embarrassing to the USA to watch.
I promised you a ping. This is one of four editorials that I will be authoring this weekend. Please feel free to share your thoughts!
I thought the title was kinda witty.... a play on the phrase, “statutory rape”. :)
Yeah, I noticed that. I like it.
They already may have arrived at that point.
Nice job Laz.
Oh, I know. It’s just a reminder to the sane among us.
A recent comment asked: “How long is it going to be before leftists start burning down libraries, with the idea that ‘Books make people become fascists’?”
Many Confederate soldiers and officers fought honorably for this nation in the Spanish-American War. Many gave their lives protecting this nation while others were part of the rebuilding after the Civil War.
They are all US citizens and not some evil people.
We even separate our feelings about NAZIs between those who carried out atrocities versus those simply serving their nation.
Thanks, KC. Three more editorials to write. HUFF PUFF!
Steve Scalise is evidence they have.
I know. I direct the comment, obstensibly to the left, but in reality to those Americans who have not lost their f***in minds yet. LOL
