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.
I am more than a little miffed at the Jews for caving on the metal detectors at the entrance of the temple mount. especially since they should be building a high, electrified, fence around the temple mount with a full complement of .50 caliber machine guns on each corner .
ISIS, Taliban ,al-Qaeda, etc. have a reputation for destroying monumental structures. They fight, kill or subjugate, (dhimmitude). wherever they conquer. They conscript holy places, lie and lay claim to them as their own.
The unbroken history of Jerusalem and her temple thousand years before Muhammad raped and plundered is a testament to the authentic claim Israel has to the mount. The mount was foundation to the Jewish temple, since it’s razing by the Persian in 585 B>B> till its sacking by the Romans in 66 to 70 C.E. .The Mohammed thing drawing on a convoluted retelling of the old and new testament didn’t show till around 654 O.E.. In the most simple terms, those of time, the Jews ride shotgun and the Muzz are wannabes. Trespassers
For a generation that has been deprived of the privilege of honest days work…..For a generation that has spent their spare hours in front of a T.V. killing dragons.
The image of a university is not referenced I the story behind the pik. It is an image of the regal baring of institutes of higher learning in western culture…..Where political submission and downright ignorance of history and the petty gripes of the politically correct find a bully pulpit from which to indoctrinate Americas youth. (Remember, these youngsters are fresh out of High School and haven’t a clue past the mainstream medias perpetual propaganda.
Considering the Muzz Bro’hoods doctorine of infiltrate, agitate, and take over, everything is going as planned.
But you will one day become an old man, back bent and weak. And all around you will stand a ring of men,
young, strong, and willing to stand in harms way.
On one of my many visits to Palmer high School to deal with the antics of one of my sociopathic daughters I spotted a rather tall thin woman approaching the waiting room She was an awkward and gangly figure, with thin legs and bony knees. She was wearing a kind of retro-floral loung- lizard dress and what was a hideously quaffd blond B-52.
Well, you guessed it. He was a she…. he/she was called Buzz by the students and evidently worked hard for the moniker by hi/her wanton fraternization with the students in pot smoked nooks and crannies all over Colorado Springs..
Trump recently banned (delayed) admission of transgender folks in the military.
I can imagine “Buzz” Running over the bodies and carnage of all sorts in his white (cute open toes and strap}, toward the ramparts, his wig askew and falling over from the vicissitudes of war. With a cut e little tear up the thigh of his floral print to show off the stringy sinew of his thighs. . He could wear grenades as ear rings and several poison bobby pins for the last true measure of fashion courage. ..
As a matter of fact, the typically violent
Evidence of stone tool making in the pre-historic eastern Mediterranean stretch’s back to 130 thousand years B.C.E. The first signs of cultivation of grain began in the fertile crescent 10 or 12 thousand years ago. People gathered into communities, empires grew and waned. The guiding principles remained pretty much the same. Might was right, if I subjugate or kill you, it means my Gods are better than yours. I decide what is right and wrong and no karmic imbalance happens. If I win, you deserve what you get. Armies of killers roamed all places. Kingdoms were on the tip of a sword innocents were fodder for warlords and nothing more.
The magnificant coliseum in Rome, built by with war booty from a Roman slap-down of the Jews and a destruction of their Jerusalem Temple, the daily murder of tens of thousands of innocents in middle and south America sacrificed by the Mayans, or the blood-soaked mortar of Chinas great wall, are testimony to humanities endless endless capacity for cruelty in service to greatness. Mention could be made of such tragedies as Stalin’s 20 + million dead, or Hitler’s murder of 6 million plus during WWII, but the count is endless and spans the entire history of mankind.
Jesus was crucified a couple of millennia ago. He was a Jew who wandered the middle east pushing a message of peace and love that was so threatening he was tortured to death by the Roman occupiers (at the shrill behest of the local clergy) of Jerusalem. Jesus threatened the status and position of the local Jewish religious leaders of Jerusalem who lived in affluent repose, and were not about to let a wandering vagrant threaten their jobs with his growing popularity
This man, who preached love and tolerance, emerged from an era that respected power and violence above all. He spoke of spiritual values rather than subjugation of others. To this day we struggle with these conflicting drives. Nonetheless the societies that follow his teachings have become more successful than any other groups No doubt that that Christians can and have failed these values, but in balance, we have brought abundance and at least sporadic civility to many. Today evil that is growing in the middle east will not stop its holy war until it finds victory over cultures that offend Muslim sensitivities.
I have fearlessly admitted to being an atheist , raised as an atheist by a mother who, after losing her own mother to an ectopic pregnancy at the age of nine, began hating God. and denying his existence. One cute statement I have used to use to describe my ambivalence about religion has been , “On a good day I am an agnostic.” But all my great scientific, humanistic wisdom has done little to comfort my rage at the evil being done in the world today. if I truly had some real understanding of the world, and the hearts of men, I could find some answers. The answers I do find seem to lead back to my Christian beliefs. Well, I proclaim I am a Christian!…. This is a picture of the man who has chased me into the arms of Jesus Christ. Just take a look at the world! The most advanced societies follow Christian standards of behavior. Where there is Islam there is violence, misogyny, tyranny, ignorance and inequity. An entire gender relegated to the status of livestock, barbaric mutilations used as punishment for misdemeanors.
This man personally killed many people and ordered the murder of many more. He kept slaves as sex toys and on one occasion he took the wife of a man he had tortured and killed as a sex toy. If you are to believe in an afterlife, then you must believe the promise that if you take a life for Allah or martyr yourself, you will be rewarded with your very own stable of sex slaves when you die and go to heaven. (So much for the notion of romantic love!)
I WOULD RATHER HANG WITH THIS LOSER
Upon achieving my masters in psychology I took an interim job at a slaughterhouse. I was so soaked in blood, by the end of each workday you could stand my jeans up in the corner as the blood coagulated into one huge scab. At the massacre called “The Battle of the Trenches” Gods one True Prophet ordered the decapitation of 600 to 1000 of the defeated, (every male past puberty)…. Every adult male Jew in Yathrib ( now Medina) Arabia. One wonders at the amount of blood coagulating in his robes as he hacked away at men probably bound hand and foot. Then there is the smell. To this day there are times that cooking certain meats hints at the smell of the mixture of blood and stomach contents that used to spew, steaming, from a large conduit at the rear of the slaughter house. I wonder about the smell that must have clung to The Prophets cloths at the end of the day.
