Don't touch the monuments!
A quick hit about our SICK nation.
I will write a great deal more on this subject in a week or two. I will especially carve out a segment for treatment of a remarkably naive and unhelpful column in the Washington from last November.
But there are forces at work, vert close to the completion of their work, that represent everything Orwell warned us about and a symbol of what our present-day government is doing to the fabric of this nation.
These, the phony-virtuous intend to tear down the Confederate monument in Arlington National Cemetery because it doesn’t square with the monument they would have built, if they allowed one at all.
When I give this issue the full treatment, it will be clear that there is a LOT to be said for keeping it, not the least of which is that you can’t unmake history.
Using the thinking, or lack of it, in the WAPO article, we should absolutely pull down the Tomb of the Unknowns. We don’t know how they died. Did they die bravely in battle? Or were they killed runnning from the field? We shouldn’t risk the national honor by possibly honoring cowards. And the poor soldiers who have to guard. OH, GOLLY! How terrible.
That is, of course, satire. But it is a model of why they want to tear down that 100 yr old monument!
For now, let it suffice to call AND email you representatives in DC and tell them to have the guts to stand against the Orwellian forces, and leave that monument right where it is!
Do it NOW!
