It could have been male white racists. Could have been Buddhists. It could have been irate Irishmen. Maybe hinky Hindi’s. Maybe aggravated agnostics. Maybe Catty Catholics in heat. BUT! I don’t think so! Who would you put your money on?
Barcelona Spain got hit today. So far the body count is thirteen dead victims and a couple of armed men hole up in a Barcelona bar. Well, so what! Big deal! it happens somewhere every day these days. Jus’ Klikdapik and peruse the news.
Yesterday I posted a piece on the gradual displacement of cultures and the flood of westward immigration from the holy land. It caused great consternation to some. They were pissed at my racist, anti-multi-cultural potty mouth. This female used the word racist wrong. If you assume an angry semi-literate teacher, you would be right. These days getting a teaching certificate is more a matter of parroting a hand full of approved politically correct bumper stickers than any real knowledge. I could put together a list of such quips. that would fit on a post card. “Having a nice death. Wish you were here. (Bring your Thesaurus, (noooooo it isn’t a dinosaur!)
Love can be the most powerful force in the human heart. Hatred can be just as potent a drive as love, should it be nurtured and groomed in spite of the destruction it embraces. The pik below links to a simple opinion piece but it refers to the displacement of one culture by another and why the west should start worrying now.
There is a good chance that our great granddaughters will look like this in as short a span as two or three generations. So is it hatred to reject the enemies of freedom? Is it love or just misplaced “good intentions” to open the borders to those who want your territory but not your beliefs? Can the constitution dovetail with sharia or will the superstructure of democracy crumble before such a set of beliefs?
I am big, 6’3″ and a couple hundred pounds. Is it manly to use my strength to suppress those I am supposed to love. Or is it the true purpose of muscle to protect rather than conquer our own? I believe I have been given the gift of strength to stand in harms way for the benefit of those I love? Any respect I receive should be earned. I could get curtsies and bowed heads with a raised fist. but that is fear, not love. Should harm threaten my people, is it hatred that brings my raised fist against that harm?
The process of displacement has already metastasized throughout Europe right now.
Robert E. Lee was a good general. The best tactician the south had and possibly the best General of the civil war. But his quest, if he had won the war, was one that would prolong the putrid practice of slavery in America.
How do you address a man, trained by Americas premier military school, (West Point), climbed through the ranks to a become venerated officer. How do you address a man who turns on the government that bore him, nurtured him to manhood and provided him a life and career who turns on that country? This man raised an Army, and declared war on his country of origin. Is he a traitor? Is he a rebel? Is he a terrorist?
Robert E. Lee is the insurrectionist, pictured above. This icon, this hunk of junk, was the seed from which spurred the deadly drive through a crowed of protesters that injured many and killed a innocent young woman. This tribute to slavery was the point of coalescence for both white supremacist and anti-white supremacist groups that clashed upon the occasion of it’s removal from public ground. It would best be suited for a museum dedicated to the dark days that killed over a half million Americans. Not a place of public reverence!. It would be nice if the statue be presented in a hole. A position where observers never look up at the “historical artifact” but always down. He is neither a founding father, or war hero. He is a representative of the sick pride that speaks to those who are still fighting the civil war. Guess what my dear white supremacists,……….YOU LOST! GET OVER IT! AND JOIN THE UNITED STATES.
