Surrender: University of Texas Makes Confederate Statues Disappear


The University of Texas is getting out in front of the anti-Confederate movement sweeping America this month by removing the statues of Robert E. Lee and other Civil War luminaries from a conspicuous area of the campus. UT President Greg Fenves ordered the immediate removal of the statues on Sunday night, declaring that they had turned into “symbols of modern white supremacy and neo-Nazism.”

Crews were in place Sunday night to prepare for the removal; the university announced that the statues would be gone by midday on Monday.

This is not the first time the university has taken aim at Confederate statues. In 2015, after the shooting at a black church in Charleston, S.C., the university moved a statue of Jefferson Davis from its prominent place near the campus clock tower to a history museum. Fenves has announced that statues of Lee, Confederate Postmaster General John Reagan, and Confederate General Albert Sidney Johnston will now join Davis in the Brisco Center for American History.

“Last week, the horrific displays of hatred at the University of Virginia and in Charlottesville shocked and saddened the nation,” said Fenves in a statement. “These events make it clear, now more than ever, that Confederate monuments have become symbols of modern white supremacy and neo-Nazism.”

While Fenves isn’t entirely wrong about that last part, that fact only makes it more shameful that his school (and so many other cities, towns, and campuses) are giving in to this movement so willingly. Now is the time when academics and historians should be pushing back – hard – on any attempts to re-categorize these memorials as symbols of white supremacy. They were never intended to stand for hate, nor were they intended to stand as apologia for the Confederate cause. They were certainly never intended to invoke an argument for slavery! So why should neo-Nazis get to tarnish everything these statues truly symbolize?

Far from memorials to evil, these monuments are a living testament to some of the most heroic, brave soldiers and leaders this country has ever produced. Were they ultimately on the wrong side of history? Few would disagree. Then again, few would argue in 2017 that there were not at least a few moral issues with the war America’s first pioneers waged against the Native American population. That’s the thing about history. It ain’t always pretty. But we can acknowledge that truth without severing our link to it.

Tearing down statues of Robert E. Lee and Jefferson Davis will accomplish exactly NOTHING when it comes to issues of modern-day racial equality. In fact, it accomplishes just the opposite. It lumps proud Southern men in with the absolute dregs of society. It forces them to choose between their own heritage and the absurd demands of political correctness. It ultimately dooms this country to continued division along scar lines that the LEFT – not the right – is opening anew.

    Those that stand for nothing, fall for anything…

    Time to remove your children from a school that will not stand for what is right. There is nothing for them to learn there.

    1. Kurt Hanssen says

      If a statue can be removed, so can the school.

      1. MAHB001 says

        Excellent point. The Presidents actions make the University irrelevant.

      2. Retired says

        Some of it is to stop the destruction of the statues ,instead of locking up the Criminals destroying them . Thank Obama and his stoolies for all these problems along with the media .

        1. Paul Robinson says

          The problem goes back much further than Obamy. He was just a puppet for the real players working behind the scenes.

          1. bendecido says

            Paul, in some ways I agree with what you are saying. But, can you please give us some examples to back up what you claim. I would like to know so that I can be up to date on the subject matter? Thank you.

          2. Paul Robinson says

            Should I begin in the Victorian era. The manipulation of the US into WW1. Should I state the Bolsheviks won WW2. How about the establishment of the nascent One World Government called the UN. Specifically in this country the drastic change in the immigration laws circa 1965. All this predates Obamy. So who is behind all these events. The problem with everyone in large part is a lack of vision. People just plod along and can’t remember further back than yesterday or look further than tomorrow. Things happen and they look at the nearest event and blame that as the cause.

          3. ABO says

            Well said Paul but I think the point was that although every item you addressed, while absolutely legitimate were indeed in the past. The point being that the flag has been passed along to Obama, Soros and others who continue to manipulate the US toward their goal of the establishment of an Ultimate One World Government. While I disagree with nothing you stated I sincerely hope I have at least condensed the points that have been made above.

          4. Paul Robinson says

            The puppet masters remain ever the same. I agree of course that Obama, Soros, the Clintons, and many other traitors to this Country are currently carrying the flag so to speak. But they are disposable tools. Very depraved, easily blackmailable, controlled tools. But the Masters remain hidden in the shadows. If Obama, Soros and the Clintons were to vanish from the Earth tomorrow nothing would change, because they are only following a plan laid out by others.

          5. AKLady says

            You left out the Koch Brothers and you do not seem to have any knowledge of the Nazi-loving father.

          6. Paul Robinson says

            National Socialists were enemies of the decadent depraved Jewish Bolsheviks.

          7. AKLady says

            You are not making sense. Bolsheviks were a member of the majority faction of the Russian Social Democratic Party, which was renamed the Communist Party after seizing power in the October Revolution of 1917.

          8. Paul Robinson says

            I realize your pea brain has difficulty processing facts.

          9. AKLady says

            Bolshevik, ( Russian: “One of the Majority”) , plural Bolsheviks, or Bolsheviki, member of a wing of the Russian Social-Democratic Workers’ Party, which, led by Lenin, seized control of the government in Russia (October 1917) and became the dominant political power.

          10. says

            they were also the group that succeeded th Mensheviks who in turn succeeded the Kerensky government Russia’s sad attempt at democracy,analogous to the Weimar Republic in Germany

          11. AKLady says

            Good night,
            Nice discussion.
            Thank you for sharing.

          12. AKLady says

            plural noun: Bolsheviks
            a member of the majority faction of the Russian Social Democratic Party, which was renamed the Communist Party after seizing power in the October Revolution of 1917.
            (in general use) a person with politically subversive or radical views; a revolutionary.

          13. ABO says

            I agree Paul. However if we are to make any inroads as far as defeating it we must deal with it’s current iteration must we not?

          14. Paul Robinson says

            Well the pawns can be batted out of the way and there is an endless supply. It is the Tribe behind it all that must be defeated. This Tribe has infiltrated all media, the Universities, even public schools, as well as being behind the success or failure of most politicians. This is the Tribe that brought death by the millions to Russia with the Bolshevik Revolution. They are behind all the depravity, the 3rd world immigration both to the US and Europe. There are behind every assault on morality and Christianity. Until the light of truth shines on these Sons of Satan, the people will remain asleep. If people finally wake up then the Power these Vipers exercise over us will end. Their pawns would then become irrelevant.

          15. ABO says

            Again, thank you Paul, for your assessment.

          16. AKLady says

            The “One World Government” hysteria has been around for decades.
            We live in a global society.
            America cannot return to isolationism
            It would guarantee the downfall of our Nation.

          17. jaybird says

            It is the rich families that got rich in the industrial industry of our nation in the birth of our country. Rockerfellow’s, Carnegie’s Rothchild’s, etc!

          18. AL ELLIS says

            Still are. They are the big ones pushing the NWO and Globalism.

          19. jaybird says


          20. AKLady says

            Reslly? Maybe you should look into the Koch holdings..

          21. AKLady says

            It was the Koch family who got rich building refineries foe Hitler.

          22. AKLady says

            Your name calling embarrasses America.

          23. pappy450 says

            Soros HIMSELF,bloomburg, the DNC, and OSCUMBAG’S, “ofa” no longer “hide” the fact THEIR “organizations” are providing funds and transportation for these “groups” (black LIES matter, antifa, laraza, just to name THREE) are PAID to cause the unrest in this country. They BRAG of this on NATIONAL TV (LIBERAL/COMMUNIST fake news channels) ALSO, I suspect that there are MORE organizations “behind the scenes” that are not going to expose themselves quite yet, BUT as they are emboldened by no one going AFTER them, and holding them responsible, they will eventually show their “faces”.

          24. Paul Robinson says

            But it is a particular group behind all these organizations that pulls the strings. All the organizations known and unknown are expendable tools. Hint this group is not the descendants of American Industrialists as mentioned by Jaybird.

          25. AKLady says

            Yes, the Koch Brothers.

          26. says

            a Conservative:”George Soros!” a Liberal:”Koch Bros.” constructive conversation-over

          27. AKLady says

            Have you ever looked at the Koch holdings?
            I suspect you have no idea as to the control the Koch have on your daily life.
            Here is a partial list:

          28. says

            do you have any idea what George Soros has done? broke the Bank of Malaysia,nearly broke the Bank of England,”1944 was my best year” because he informed on fellow Jews including his girlfriend’s family and split the take with the Nazis,while they went in the cattle cars to the death camps;and of course meddled in our politics;largely responsible for the disastrous 8 years of Obama the fake president,i could go on but you get my drift

          29. AKLady says

            I know exactly what he has been accused od.
            I know exactly which accusation is true, and which is false.

          30. says

            please enlighten me as to what charges he is innocent of?

          31. AKLady says

            He broke the Bank of England, however, he did nothing illegal.
            He did not break the bank of Malaysia.
            He did not collaborate with the Nazi.
            The Koch on the other hand, built refinery for Hitler.
            They also trained Nazis to operate it.
            Then, they went back and trained Soviets.
            One Koch is the woman know as the “Bitch Of Bucharest.”
            She is the Nazi who forced prisoners to make human skin lampshades.
            Here in the states, Fred Koch founded the John Birch Society.

          32. says

            wow did you drink the Kool-aid! yes he did collaborate with Nazis;he admitted it”1944 was my best year” you need new info

          33. AKLady says

            Soros was born August 12, 1930
            Hitler took over Hungary in 1938.

            George wrote that 1944 had been “the happiest [year] of his life,” for it had given him the opportunity to witness his father’s heroism.

            It is you, not I, that needs new info.

          34. says

            Gyorgy Schwartz the atheist Jew would have been 14 not to young to have snitched out his neighbors

          35. AKLady says

            There is no evidence that he did so.
            There is, however, a lot of ugly rumor; which you seem quite happy to believe,
            The question is why?
            The Koch did much worse, incredibly worse.
            Soros was never a traitor to the U.S.
            Fred Koch worked for the Nazi, built the refinery that fueled their war.

          36. says

            didn’t read it did you? Soros couldn’t have been a traitor to the US he wasn’t American-and in the years before we entered the war many people did business with the Nazis,some of the ovens were made in Pittsburgh

          37. AKLady says

            Read what? The article you can’t seem to provide a link for?

          38. says

            we’re getting awfully far afield of the theme of this article but i’ll give it another try-type into whatever search you use “interview with George Soros by Steve Kroft” i haven’t done it because it already found it the way i told you-cannot imagine why it won’t work for you

          39. AKLady says

            Your criteria returned ZERO valid hits.

          40. says

            you’re doing something wrong in your search-i can go right to it over and over-did you try it my way first?

          41. AKLady says

            Copied and pasted: “interview with George Soros by Steve Kroft”

          42. says

            don’t copy and paste -hell i don’t even know how to do it-simply use your Search window and type it in-you overcomplicate things

          43. says

            just did it again! the Wiki entry was on top,the one i wanted you to see directly underneath-i typed in “Gyorgy Schwartz”(without the quotes of course)and bingo there it was i CANNOT see how you can miss it! truly i am baffled

          44. AKLady says

            Type into whatever search you use “interview with George Soros by Steve Kroft” returned ZERO results.

          45. says

            A.Google or Yahoo? B.type in(very carefully so you don’t make any mistakes) GYORGY SCHWARTZ,ok? then tell me what you see just beneath or above the Wiki

          46. says

            i just typed in”George Soros interview with Steve Kroft” whaddaya know! it was RIGHT THERE-with VIDEO”the infamous 60 Minutes interview with george Soros” so you have to be TRYING not to get it(which frankly i think is the problem with many liberals,not just you)

          47. says

            he built a refinery in Hamburg in ’34;he also did business with the Soviets,our WWll allies

          48. AKLady says

            Except they were not our allies when he did business with the Soviets.
            Fred Koch built one refinery for Hitler and 15 for Stalin.

            Then there is the John Birch Society who’s members considered President Dwight D. Eisenhower to be a Communist agent.

            Koch Industries one of the top ten air polluters in the United States. They have a documented pattern of lawbreaking, political manipulation, and obfuscation. The Kochs are dependent on the public’s not knowing all the details about them.

          49. says

            Kochs donate to both sides as Donald Trump did before he became a Republican and ran for office

          50. AKLady says

            Trump did not “become” a Republican. The party adopted him.

          51. says

            he’s been a Democrat,and Independent,and now Republican-my opinion-he’s a Trumpian;could be what the country needs but i know of people who don’t think so

          52. AKLady says

            He is keeping the Courts busy with his violations of Constitution and law. After eight months in office, he has not learned to keep his mouth shut. He has insulted all of America’s allies. His “Muslim Ban” is incredibly embarrassing to our country.

            Government of the rich, by the rich, for the rich

          53. says

            you mean executive decisions? Obama did it for 8 years Bush did too-the “Muslim ban” was a mistake because put that way it is unconsititutional-there is a way to accomplish what he MEANT without being unconstitutional-he needs to stay off Twitter or build in a delay…

          54. AKLady says

            He has made one unconstitutional Executive Order. after another.

          55. says

            you are aware the last 3 presidents have been accused of the same thing…i’m sensing a pattern here…

          56. AKLady says

            Accused, yes.
            Proven, only with Trump.

          57. says

            it’s not a question of accusation,they all do it-the problem with doing it that way,without Congress is that the next president can come along and undo everything ,also by executive fiat; there has been talk of limiting executive power somewhat;problem with that is Congress especially the Senate,is too bloody slow,which truth be told it was designed to be;the Senate is the “cooling-off place” for the bills that come from the House;all very frustrating,but that is our check and balance system at work

          58. says

            yeah i read your whitewashed version- try the WordPress version directly underneath that contains the Steve Kroft(hardly a conservative!) interview-you will get a different,more sinister,but truer picture…if you don’t read it remain in liberal ignorance ,after all it is your metier…

          59. AKLady says

            Kroft is not even named on that site.
            Provide a link to support your statements.

          60. says

            i will make it very simple for you-type in the words “Gyorgy Schwartz” the title will be “Who is George Soros?” and the link such as it is is Patriot2012Wordpress

          61. AKLady says

            I’ve seen the rumors
            Where is the factual evidence?
            I asked for the link, you gave me garbage.

          62. says

            it is there- i think you just don’t want to read it-the words are from Soros’ mouth in an interview with the liberal journalist Steve Kroft;it is on the same page as that whitewashed Wiki article-look i can’t MAKE you read it but i tell you it’s there

          63. AKLady says

            What software are you using?
            Same page on what site?
            Your second post is a senseless as you first.
            You cannot even tell me where “there” is.

          64. says

            i use Yahoo off of Firefox like a million other people but Google should get there-it’s on the same page as Wikipedia

          65. AKLady says

            The statement “on the same page as Wikipedia” makes no sense.
            You are talking nonsense.

          66. says

            i feel like i am talking to a child-look when you do a search-ANY search,a page comes up with say,10 items on it- you clikck on the one that best serves you or is closest to what you’re looking for! are you with me at least this far? because if you don’t get this much you sure aren’t going to be able to use your search engine to find the converstaion between STEVE KROFT well known liberal journalist and GYORGY SCHWARTZ aka George Soros-i assume you are using a computer?

          67. AKLady says

            You are making unfounded assumptions — based on your software, computer memory and monitor size. I run two monitors, each 24 in high, 12 in wide. The search result count on my other monitor is 14.

          68. says

            apparently i am-take one monitor and pretend it is a laptop maybe that will help -can’t imagine why you can’t find it

          69. AKLady says

            Why would I pretend a monitor is a computer when I have an excellent computer system?

          70. says

            not so effing great if you can’t bring up a simple youtube video- i JUST NOW typed in “60 Minutes interview with George Soros” and pulled up no less than FOUR versions -and you with your much vaunted computer can’t even pull one written interview…do you know how to access Youtube videos?try it that-a-way

          71. says

            bottom line i can find it easily-you cannot find it at all so of course i must be making it all up in your eyes (which i’m beginning to think do not want to see)

          72. AKLady says

            Do you realize that the posts that began this conversation have been deleted?
            Save your childish insults for someone you can impress.

          73. says

            don’t think so- i still see familiar posts(MAHB001 Those that stand for nothing,fall for anything)for example,that one is 6 days old

          74. says

            sorry if my insults are childish(maybe i’m entering my second childhood) but the fact remains you weren’t able to find that interview

          75. says

            because maybe my laptop is easier to use than your 2-monitor system?

          76. AKLady says

            Why would two monitors make a computer harder to use?
            If anything, it makes life simpler. Here I am responding to your e-mail. In the other monitor I see the email that just arrived. I can tell if it is urgent without having to close this window.

          77. says

            can your super duper dual monitor computer find a simple Youtube video in a common search like Yahoo? because i’m beginning to think you CANNOT do it

          78. AKLady says

            Blah, blah, blah, lie, insult, assume, exaggerate …repeat ad nauseam.

            Tedious, boring, repetitive …enfant terrible

          79. says

            if you would just admit you don’t want to know about it i would totally understand-some facts are just too hard to process because it shakes our belief systems-then we might actually have to question ourselves-but choose your battles,which “hill to die on” because frankly evil vermin like George Soros aren’t worthy of you

          80. AKLady says

            You lost the discussion when you resorted to insult.
            Here you are with more insults.
            Good night.

          81. says

            true! last refuge of the incompetent,etc.etc.-but i have to keep coming back to the one thing-and that one thing is,i do not understand how you could not access the interview?

          82. Debra Wilson says

            The heroism of George Sorros’s father was what? He paid big money to keep his son from going to the gas chamber? Sorros grew up at watching the Jewish people being drug off to concentration camps, tortured, homes robbed and burnt and we ask why he is monster.

          83. AKLady says

            Too brainwashed to look up facts?

          84. AKLady says

            Name calling is nursery school behavior.

            Why do you need to tell these lies?
            Why do you embarrass America this way?
            Why do you believe it is acceptable to lie?
            Why do you believe it is acceptable to repeat lies?

          85. gonzales27 says

            Only a stooge for Soros

          86. pappy450 says

            BINGO! BUT he is just ONE of the snakes whose head must be REMOVED to let the body (“protestors”) DIE. Follow the MONEY! If the funds are cut off, and confiscated, those responsible for said funding are arrested and thrown in prison the FREAKS won’t have any way to get around to cause problems.

          87. Kenneth Jones says

            There’s an entire coterie of many-headed snakes in this country, and the extensive damage to this country that they’ve schemed and planned for has been going on for decades. They’re called liberal Democrats, and they have been exposed for what they really are: traitors. They claim they want to “fundamentally change America” according to their value system. The problem is that this is destructive of everything that the American people have held dear since 1776. President Trump has said “Enough of this!”

          88. marshmil1789 says

            Obama is remembered for saying, “Change is a’comin!” Satan devised essentially the same thing in a famous Garden after it was created and considered to be Good by its Creator. The minions of Satan don’t like what is good. They want to change it. We even have one of his little puppets wanting to dismantle the Jefferson Memorial then no telling what else by this little weasel who we are told does not pay his income taxes. We are now told there’s one on the West Coast who wants to organize an all Black political party. I thought we got rid of segregation. How did these racists get into the USA?

            Thanks cowboy. God told HIs Faithful that He will always be with them. He helped David bring down a giant–which actually meant an army when extended into the metaphorical. While we have a faction of atheists and one of evil intent in our nation today I have faith we will not be let down. That does not mean we can let our guard down.

            “Of all the animosities which have existed among mankind, those which are caused by a difference of sentiments in religion appear to be the most inveterate and distressing, and ought to be deprecated. I was in hopes that the enlightened and liberal policy, which has marked the present age, would at least have reconciled Christians of every denomination so far that we should never again see the religious disputes carried to such a pitch as to endanger the peace of society.”
            ~Founding Father George Washington, letter to Edward Newenham, October 20, 1792

          207. AKLady says

            “The Government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian religion.”
            ~1797 Treaty of Tripoli signed by Founding Father John Adams

          208. says

            that was Adams-don’t think that Jefferson would have agreed-we get our rights from God,not government

          209. AKLady says

            It is Jefferson who coined the phrase “wall of separation between church and state” in his 1802 letter to the Danbury Baptists of Connecticut. During his 1800 campaign for the presidency. Jefferson opposed Calvinism, Trinitarianism, and what he identified as Platonic elements in Christianity.

          210. says

            yes the whole point was no STATE religion such as Anglicanism in England! not the exclusion of religion entirely-freedom OF religion,not freedom FROM religion

          213. AKLady says

            “Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between man and his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, and not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should ‘make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,’ thus building a wall of separation between church and state.” George Washington

            Muslims are not wanted in China .

          220. marshmil1789 says

            The Chinese know how to stand their ground against the world’s sewage. Good for them. We in USA need to learn some tactics from the Israelis and Chinese. That means, GET TOUGH and quit playing “nice guy” to the Stone Age sewage.

          221. Retired says

            The only reason the US plays nice guy is all on the shoulders of congress , they lost Korea and Nam and the same is in the middle east . If congress does not get its act together they will lose the USA . China replaced Taiwan in the Panama Canal plus they are trying to buy a large Chunk of land right next to the Panama Canal .Good place for Missiles pointing our way .

            My two Senators have backbone. My representative caters to the other race. His replies to my communications with him say absolutely nothing. He sends back pure BS with NO substance…the kind of BS that hoodwinks his voters. They think he’s actually saying something.

          223. Retired says

            Isn’t that the case with most elected , many times the replies are written by the staff and the elected never saw the letter .

          224. marshmil1789 says

            Yep! Frankly have no trust in my Representative. In my area “the deck is stacked” in favor of someone getting elected who has no interest in hearing my comments. I vote against him every two years no matter who is running.

            true-but they claim to value reason,so i attempt to get at ’em that way

          231. marshmil1789 says

            They “claim” but do not produce. A corrupt tree cannot bring forth good fruit even if you liberally use expensive fertilizer.

          232. says

            there is definitely a bunch of fertilizer involved-of the organic variety!

          233. marshmil1789 says

            That’s why the tree yields only more dung.

            Today leftist lawyers and magistrates want to legislate from the Bench.

          237. marshmil1789 says

            Exactly Michael. But the atheist left tries to twist the Constitution’s wording to suit their selfish wants. I’m amused at the leftists attempt to delete the next part of the statement, “or prohibit the free exercise thereof;…” Amendment II was placed to protect and defend the provisions of Amendment I.
            Leftists want to abolish Amendment II so they can shred
            Amendment I as well as the entire Constitution. Socialists
            will never give up their agenda to overthrow the United States of America as it has existed since 1789. Leftists have the mindset of Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, Josef Stalin, Fidel Castro, Kim J. Un and several other upstarts…we might add Saul Alinsky and his Apostle Barack Obama to the list.

          238. says

            interesting historical side note: Karl Marx was a great admirer of Abraham Lincoln,wrote letters to him;Charles Dana,a member of Lincoln’s cabinet and future editor(and founder) of the Chicago Sun-Times,was the first person to translate the Communist Manifesto into English from the German

          243. says

            that is what was meant,alright;another time He said to sell your robes and go naked if need be but get a sword

          244. marshmil1789 says

            Post the Bible verse where you find this. I don’t believe it…the “naked” part.

          245. says

            Luke 22:36; and you are right nowhere could i find the word “naked”! i must have assumed(always a mistake) that after selling your robe,you would be dis-robed

          246. marshmil1789 says

            Thanks. And be assured my request was not meant to “back you against a wall”. I might be wrong on this but in Jesus’ time men wore something like a garment over their “underclothes”. Then they carried a coat for chilly or cold weather. The season might have been during the warm months so the disciples could have traded their coats for
            swords. I’m not a historical expert here but I believe the sword was not for “war” but for protection against robbers.
            Some liberals have tried to make that out to be “prepare for war”. Incidentally a man’s garment woven from top to bottom without seam was common 2000 years ago. It is said that one of Jesus’ garments was one of those. While we tend to make a big issue over His garment without seam historically it was common in His day. Consider He would not have worn expensive clothing. He said people who wear “soft clothing” live in Kings’ palaces. There is a place in the New Testament where a young boy had followed the disciples and Jesus to Gethsemane having only something like a sheet wrapped around him. Some believe him to have been John the Disciple. The story goes that the guards attempted to catch and hold him but he ran from them naked as they held only the sheet. It is believed he was “John, the Beloved Disciple”. Considering he might have been in his teens or twenties around 30 AD and that he might have been an orphan being taken care of by the Disciples it can fit together logically. There is not really much about him except that it is believed he lived to around 95 AD when he wrote the Revelation. That might put John’s age at 75 to 85 years and would fit him being a young boy around 30 AD the year Jesus was crucified on Passover which that year fell on a Wednesday. [ We have to follow the Hebrew calendar, not the Roman Catholic calendar. ]

          247. says

            oh no i didn’t think you were trying to do that-i actually wanted to look it up rather than to keep quoting it without the chapter/verse;what i found was many versions! John is an interesting character-we would have to factor in those years on Patmos,and birth certificates as we know them were unknown,but Romans were pretty good record keepers,and Judeans no doubt kept records of transactions,at least important ones-by putting pieces together we get the picture fairly accurately-also you are right the Hebrew calendar would have been the one

          248. marshmil1789 says

            That’s the order Christians and practicing Jews have it.

          252. says

            and often guilty of projection,that is,accusing others of what they themselves are guilty

          253. marshmil1789 says

            We’ve been noticing that all along. They never come up with anything original about Donal Trump. All of their negative comments about him are the very comment s leveled against Barack Obama. All they do is swap the names in sentences from liberal names to conservative names when they accuse. Sites like this one are loaded with examples of that type.

          254. marshmil1789 says

            What do we expect Brenda. The left is a faction of hypocrites.
            Then when Donald Trump wants to build a wall to protect us from the mayhem we see in Europe the leftists are going ballistic. 1. They hate the God of Abraham and of Christians. 2. They hate traditional America because it forbids socialism and its festering endpoint–communism. Those two entities block their setting up their Politburo/Presidium wherein they strive for bureaucratic offices in “government” where they dictate the private lives of people living hundreds to thousands of miles away with whom they will never relate.

            Question with boldness even the existence of a god; because if there be one he must approve of the homage of reason more than that of blindfolded fear.
            -Thomas Jefferson, letter to Peter Carr, August 10, 1787

            I concur with you strictly in your opinion of the comparative merits of atheism and demonism, and really see nothing but the latter in the being worshipped by many who think themselves Christians. -Thomas Jefferson, letter to Richard Price, Jan. 8, 1789

            History, I believe, furnishes no example of a priest-ridden people maintaining a free civil government. This marks the lowest grade of ignorance of which their civil as well as religious leaders will always avail themselves for their own purposes. -Thomas Jefferson to Alexander von Humboldt, Dec. 6, 1813.

            If we did a good act merely from love of God and a belief that it is pleasing to Him, whence arises the morality of the Atheist? …Their virtue, then, must have had some other foundation than the love of God. -Thomas Jefferson, letter to Thomas Law, June 13, 1814

            And the day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the supreme being as his father in the womb of a virgin will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerve in the brain of Jupiter. But may we hope that the dawn of reason and freedom of thought in these United States will do away with this artificial scaffolding, and restore to us the primitive and genuine doctrines of this most venerated reformer of human errors.

            -Thomas Jefferson, Letter to John Adams, April 11, 1823

          260. says

            he believed in challenging dogma, yes;Wiki says he was comfortable with deism,rational religion,and Unitarianism;he may have felt there was merit in paganism,in short he was a freethinker,but always he came form his Christian roots;his feeling about establishment of a state religion no doubt a direct product of his having been born&raised Anglican(Church of England)

          263. marshmil1789 says

            Brenda technically Barack Hussein Obama was never a US President. He never qualified under Constitutional requirements. Donald Trump is actually the 44th. President.
            Obama claimed on a video to be a Muslim. That plus giving cash to our enemy Iran certifies him to be a traitor. A Muslim by the cult to which he/she belongs has vowed to overthrow the USA. He lied when he was illegally given the Presidential Oath of Office by John Roberts…he had not intention to protect and defend the Constitution.

          264. AKLady says

            It is called the 1st Amendment to the US Constitution.

          265. Kenneth Jones says

            Agreed, although when one’s freedom to speak freely to another at the expense of the other results in the denial of that person’s freedom of speech and in doing so it causes damage to the country, where then do you draw the line?

          266. AKLady says

            Hate speech is protected. Hate speech is speech which attacks a person or group on the basis of attributes such as race, religion, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, disability, or gender.

            In 1942, Justice Frank Murphy summarized the case law: “There are certain well-defined and limited classes of speech, the prevention and punishment of which have never been thought to raise a Constitutional problem. These include the lewd and obscene, the profane, the libelous and the insulting or ‘fighting’ words – those which by their very utterances inflict injury or tend to incite an immediate breach of the peace.” Chaplinsky v. New Hampshire, 315 U.S. 568, 572 (1942)

The man himself is evil and depraved of course. But if he died tomorrow their would be another frontman tapped by the Puppet Masters to take his place. We must not worry about pawns, but concern ourselves with the King.

            The King is not a particular person, but a group of people. They are a Tribe of a certain ethnicity. To write the name usually gets a post removed so I hope you know who I mean.

            Jesus Christ was Jewish
            The Apostles were Jewish.
            Christ’s followers were Jewish.

          291. Paul Robinson says

            Ok Tranny from Alaska. Trolling again I see. Jesus Christ was not Jewish in the modern sense. After all he didn’t deny his own divinity or the fact he was the Messiah. Of course the Apostles were the first Christians, in fact any Jew now can stop being a Jew and become a Christian. Judaism is a religion that denies Christ’s divinity, hates Christianity, worships the Jewish people and not God, has holidays that commemorate genocide against other peoples. It is essentially an Anti-Christ reiligion.

          292. AKLady says

            The kindergartener from the Lower 48 has a bad habit of insulting people. He thinks its cute, You can get away with it o the internet. Christi did not deny divinity, neither did he claim to be a god.

          336. Paul Robinson says

            Well in our lifetime just about every national level politician would be controlled by the Puppet Masters. But to truly understand the extent of the problem it is necessary to go back to a time when only some politicians were controlled. In the Modern era the French Revolution is a good place to start. Or we could go back 2000 years when a certain Messiah didn’t do the job the way the self chosen wanted. That might be the best place to start because it is that particular Tribe that is behind all the assaults on our civilization.

          338. Paul Robinson says

            Too bad! The vipers that murdered him would have been exposed and brought to justice while the trail was still hot. Not only that. Although I see the framework of what we are experiencing predates the 1960’s, things really got rolling about that time. If the internet existed then, it is possible that much of what we are now experiencing in this country could have been prevented. But at least we can spread awareness now and hopefully restore sanity. It is almost or maybe already too late. Our culture and country has been seriously undermined.

            I certainly won’t deny that. But he is not the Power behind the push for the destruction of our culture, race and country. He is a mere tool. Well paid and depraved and loving every moment he and his tranny wife get to spend our hard earned tax dollars while destroying us.

          2. Lisa Meyer says

            It’s the same thing as with racial epithets. One black can call another black the N word, but a white better not do it! It’s also just dandy for blacks to kill other blacks, even children. But should a white do it, he is a racist redneck and the whole black community will be out for blood.
            I hate to sound racist, but maybe we whites should start taking a page or two from their playbook and start fighting fire with fire (or protest with protest).

          3. carroll wood says

            Same to you, sir. And thank you and those you served with for your service!

          5. GuardianFlame says

            Hey Lisa! You, again, are 100 % right! I so agree with you on all points.

            If all Whites turned around and gave the Blacks, etc. a taste of their own nastiness, perhaps the Blacks would realize their actions are out of place and pathetic. Besides, the percentage of the Black population is the smallest number of all the races in America. I believe Latinos have taken the lead as the largest population.

            Nevertheless, the Blacks need to step up to the plate and take responsibility for their wayward children. The Black family unit does not create a successful child but a child of the streets. The Hood is no place to raise a child of responsibility but a child who works the system. The child mimics the parents.

            Education is the only answer to changing that environment, but with generation after generation on Welfare, education isn’t even considered. Those that do get educated usually leave the hood, but if there are strong ties, the criminality follows them too.

            It definitely is a race issue that only the Blacks can fix. They can blame others for so long until it goes full circle and lands back in their laps. Calling Whites White Supremists is just trying to transfer the Black culture’s issues of lack of parenting to the Whites. Everyone knows what the issues are — the Blacks need to be more directed in fixing their own Culture instead of throwing the blame onto the White race. Getting rid of Soros and his fake BLM group would be the first step!

          6. Lisa Meyer says

            When I was growing up, we had a few black families in my neighborhood and they were the nicest, cleanest, most hard working, God-fearing people you would ever want to meet. And in both families, Momma ruled, and taught her kids right from wrong, and those black children had more respect in their little finger than most white kids had in their whole body. They were gracious and generous, and the doors to their homes were always open to anyone.
            Today, a lot of blacks are angry, welfare stealing,drug dealing, lazy, anti-white, anti- christian, criminals or wanna be criminals who come from broken families or momma-only families cause momma got knocked up, and daddy ran off cause he was to drug addled or responsibility-defunct. And momma is usually drug/alcohol-addicted or a ho that could also care less about the kid. So the kid grows up getting through life the only way he can…begging or stealing, getting into gangs to have a sense of family or belonging, more criminal behaviour, drugs, etc. Like you say, the cycle repeats. And the anger gets worse, so since they have to have someone to blame, they blame it all on whitey, The Great Oppressor.
            The problem with welfare is there is no incentive for anyone to ever get off of it. Some states have limits as to how long you can be on it until they cut you off, and I think 18 months is more than ample time to find gainful employment, possibly extended if you are in a job training program. But many states just keep handing out the checks, supplementing them if there are kids in the family, and then paying more if more kids arrive, which they usually do. Its a vicious cycle, and until reforms are enacted, it will be perpetual
            Round up Soros and his spawn and minions, send them to Hungary and strip him naked then make him run a gauntlet thru the streets of Budapest. Give pitchforks to all the people. A fitting punishment for the Devil

          7. GuardianFlame says

            Hi Lisa!
            I remember the same thing growing up. The young Black kids were so nice, polite and respectful and you knew never to anger their Mama because she was certainly the boss.

            At the time I was in high school, my Dad ran a huge Gas warehouse and was forced to hire several Black men. My dad wasn’t very happy with their performance because all they did was complain and then were never to be found when he needed them. He had no good words for any Black man.

            When I went to College I met several Black male students and we became friends. One in particular was so funny and a constant source of “Hey, you can do this” when studies became challenging. After college I really missed his positive attitude. The other guy was the nephew of the great Band Leader, Cab Calloway, and he was so polite and gentle and handsome! All the girls loved being around him. I don’t know what happened to either of them after college. I do know when I mentioned them to my dad, he became very angry. His experience with Black men was poor, while mine was just the opposite. Looks like education was the changing factor!

            Today Blacks in the Hood are trapped by their own ideas of “why” they are there instead of looking how to get out of that nightmare life. The very few that manage to remove themselves (with their kids) can still drag their “Hood” connections to wherever they move.

            For example: We had just moved into a brand new neighborhood in Arizona, lived there for ten years, made good friends, and slowly watched the neighborhood go down hill. First it was the graffiti that started appearing on the neighborhood walls. We caught a couple of those guys and the police took them away. Then it started coming back and as quickly as we painted over it, it reappeared. So we started checking with neighbors as to any “new” neighbors moving in. There was two Black families that recently moved into our predominantly White and Latino (educated) Neighborhood. So we talked to one of the families and found out they had small children — no issues there. Then we asked if they knew the other Black family and they knew of her (single Mother), but they weren’t friends.

            The single mother had a teenage son who was running with a gang in Phoenix and she moved away to keep him safe. That’s what any loving Mother would do, right? Only, it didn’t work because the kid still contacted his gang and they brought their actions and attitude to our neighborhood. They hung in our neighborhood and were challenging other gangs in the surrounding areas which we had no idea even existed. We put our home up for sale shortly after that before the neighborhood took a real dump…and it did. We have friends who rent out a home there and they said it is bad, so bad they are selling as soon as possible.

            So even though Black parents are trying to remove their kids from the gangs, unless they monitor them or remove their cells, the kids will bring those gang issues to wherever they live. When we began investigating “who” was using graffiti in our neighborhood, someone keyed our new Truck. When we reported it to the Police, they told us they were aware of a new gang in the area and there might be a possibility they did it because we were defending our neighborhood — the gang’s territory that they felt they could do anything they wanted. We fought them and they retaliated.

            I believe the “cure” for the Black disease of irresponsibility and Crime is strengthening the bonds between Parents and child, raising that child with God’s word, and teaching them boundaries…and consequences. Places like the Hood need to be destroyed, leveled, down to the bare dirt. Teach the Black families how to build a new home, a new life, and a better future for their children — all together. If they all work together to make things better, then they will work hard to keep it that way. Or one would hope.

            The one thing I have been noticing is that when the “Father” is present in a Black Family, the kids seem to do better in life. More and more Black Fathers are staying and raising their kids. That’s a win win situation for all Black kids! It’s no longer just Mama’s job to be the boss. Now it’s a dual responsibility and it seems to work — at least in the Families outside the Hood. Like I said — LEVEL THE HOOD TO THE DIRT AND START OVER — KICK OUT ALL DRUG DEALERS AND TAKE THEIR KIDS TO CHURCH FAITHFULLY. it’s a beginning…

            First of all — hand over Soros and his minions to Hungary or any other country wanting his head. Like you said, that’s a fitting end for the Devil!

          8. Lisa Meyer says

            Guardian, the responsibility really DOES have to begin in the home. And that is where the problem lies. It’s not just a problem in black families either. There are so many “latchkey kids” these days, even in white families. Parents are both working full time to make ends meet, or a single parent is working two, sometimes three jobs. Kids don’t spend enough time in school, either. When I was going to school, we were in school from 8 am until 3:30 in the afternoon, then a lot of kids had after school sports, band, etc. I was going down the street the other day, and ELEMENTARY school kids were being picked up at 1 pm! Whaaat? And everyone wonders why kids today don’t know anything. They are not in school long enough to learn anything! They spend (with their parents knowledge and blessing) waaay too much time on their cell phones and computers and not enough time studying or playing sports, or participating in life-enriching activities. And the parents…most of them couldn’t tell you where their kids are or what they are doing, or who they hang out with at any given time. If kids get into trouble, they rarely go to jail or Juvy anymore. Usually for minor things they are released to their parents who just tell Little Johnny or Joanie “Don’t do that again”
            and the next day the kids are right back doing it again. If they do go to jail, it isn’t long enuf, and personally, I think every 6th grader should be required to go through the “Scared Straight” program. I think that would solve a lot of problems.
            Bottom line is, if kids arent raised right and taught right from wrong at home, they will never learn it. And most kids that learn on the streets learn that it is alright to do wrong, because punishment rarely fits the crime anymore.

          9. GuardianFlame says

            I know what you are saying abt our kids in general. Latch key kids literally raise themselves and learn no boundaries. But in the hood, there are more variables that a young Black kid gets exposed to that can change his/her lives FOREVER! Pregnancy at an extremely young age is one of those “life changing issues”.

            I know first hand how quickly a kid can be swayed from the right path. When we moved from our first home to another nicer area in Southern Cali, my kids started hanging out with the wrong group. I found a spoon covered in white powder under the driver’s seat of my car. My teenage son was using it to meet his friends. I picked him up from school one day and said “Time to talk”. His face went pale and his words stumbled out, “About what?” No guilt there right?

            He and I talked, ONE ON ONE, for over 2 hours about who he was hanging with – he said the spoon wasn’t his. Yea right. His grades were plummeting and there was a general lack of caring abt anything except his new friends.
            That’s when I pulled out the stops and put ALL HIS RESPONSIBILITY RIGHT BACK ON HIS SHOULDERS! I told him He was the Captain of his ship, not his Dad, not his teachers, not his friends and certainly not me! If he wanted an unsuccessful life of drugs, jailtime, and losers, have at it, it’s his life. However, if he wants to go to College and make a good career so he can marry one day and have kids, he must change the path he is on. “HE” must do it, not Dad, not teachers, not friends. The responsibility lands clearly on his shoulders!

            After all our discussion, he asked me if I was going to tell his Dad about his bad grades and the drugs. I said not unless I see no difference in his grades nor who he’s hanging with. He assured me that what he was doing would stop that day…and it did!! He’s grades went from 2.5 (normally a 4.0 student) to 4.0+ GPA, he got on the Honor role and graduated with several scholarships! He attend a University in Southern Cal, was again on the Dean’s List and a year later got married — is still married now with 2 Teenage sons – both pulling 4.0 GPAS and lettering in Sports! He was a part owner of a technology company for the 2nd time and loves every minute!

            This was a successful story, but many kids do not have parents that discover something is wrong until it’s too late. Many of my friends and working acquaintences had kids who had been in and out of Juvenile Hall and are now in Prison. Why? What did my son get that they didn’t? My complete TIME AND CONCERN! And I Was employed too.
            Parents must take classes on raising children. There are just too many who have no idea of what they are doing and those kids are left to flounder all by themselves. No wonder they chose Gangs to belong to. Sad for our children, even sadder for their unknowing ignorant parents plus devastating for our Society!
            Parents, it’s not easy to raise responsible caring children. You have to work on it 24/7, every day of your life. If you don’t, then you should never had those kuds in the first place.

          10. Lisa Meyer says

            Bottom line is, lack of responsibility, or apathy by parents begins a bad cycle. Parents MUST know where their kids are, what they are doing, and who they are hanging with. It’s not that hard! Both my parents had jobs and ran a household with all the headaches and responsibilities that come with that. But they always knew what us kids were up to (even when we thought we were getting away with things), where we were, what time to be home, and everyone AND their parents that we were with. And if we were getting into trouble, someone in the neighborhood was going to let our parents know about it. Of course, that was a different era. We didn’t have to worry about drugs (besides weed), gangs, pedophiles, kidnappers, etc. And people looked out for one another. Now you’re lucky if you even know your neighbor s name. Everyone keeps to themselves in the city. We don’t know how to socialize anymore without a WiFi connection.
            Then you have the teen pregnancy thing. Which evolves into the child dropping out of school to either work or take care of the baby. If the parent(s) don’t have a family support structure, then they are left to struggle financially, which can turn into criminal acts just to survive and cope.
            Your last sentence pretty much says it all, for there are definitely a lot of people in this world who should never have had kids. It’s not a game you can just quit when you get tired of playing. You’d better be ready to play for at least 18 years, or don’t even get the “pieces” out!
            I’m glad your son took your concern and message to heart and turned his life around and made something of it. Too many don’t. And too many parents wouldn’t have bothered to do what you did.

          11. GuardianFlame says

            I can never understand the mindset of any parent who doesn’t put their child’s best interests first.

            It’s sad for children today because most parents put them after their own needs. They don’t realize this will create a child with little direction in their lives…and bigger issues as a teen. It becomes a vicious cycle.

            What’s the answer? The one thing that the Progressives and Libs keep trying to push out of our Society – Faith in God! Without a strong foundation built around God, the family unit disintegrates.

            It’s scary to think about our Future and the Future for our grandkids. May God be merciful.

            Hope you understand that BLM is not just a bunch of kids demonstrating but a bunch of “paid” individuals to anger and destroy what our country stands for. If you know zero abt Soros, do the research. You will be shocked at his audacity and arrogance and how casually he marches on the bodies of his victims.

            People mean nothing to a sociopath. He is Jewish and turned his own parents in to Hitler when he was in Hitler’s Youth Military – for a few coins.

            More and more Americans are learning the truth about that snake. That is absolutely necessary if we are to defeat him. We didn’t know who was behind obama until he left office. Now that President Trump will have nothing to do with Soros, Geogy is hiring many different groups to disrupt P.T’s actions. He can’t control P.T. so he will cause dissension instead.

            Soros Is A Snake – an evil snake and should be decapitated, ground underfoot and destroyed — or at least deported and banned from America. Actually, any evil as strong as he is needs to be destroyed any way possible. He’s a bad seed criminal who feels nothing for his victims.

            Check the info on him and then tell everyone you know. We need to get him out of our Country!

          16. pappy450 says

            Not only black LIES matter, don’t forget to add “antifa” and oscumbag’s “ofa” (and many others)..THESE “groups” are ANOTHER soros-PAID bunch of SCUMBAGS that are too STUPID to realize they are being USED and if the SHTF, and they are taken down, soros and his “partners” will DROP them like a hot potato and move on to FUND another “group”. soros AND his minions need to be EXECUTED, not arrested, and “deported”..There are enough “charges” against the whole cabal to do so.

          17. GuardianFlame says

            Actually, I totally agree with you. Execution is in order. However, this scumbag has so much money he keeps paying off people to look the other way and let him off the hook.

            I write directly to President Trump abt issues that are critical. Everyone should do the same. The more emails he gets on removing Soros, the better the chance of it happening!

            You sound very informed. Is there a relationship between Soros and Putin of Russia? I don’t recall anything happening there. Putin doesn’t trust that snake either. Putin is no dummy if he won’t let Soros into his country. Perhaps soros is banned just like he is banned from Hungary his birthplace.

            Evil begets evil…the only person who can approach soros in that category is Kim Jung Un of Korea…but his youth and lack of wisdom is Un’s downfall. Soros is just pure irrevocable e-v-i-l and needs to leave this earthly dimension!

          18. pappy450 says

            I too, write President Trump on twitter AND the White House website. Putin INDEED has a “relationship” with soros..he would LOVE to have him in Russia so he can EXECUTE him. Perhaps we could have President Trump give he, and his corrupt minions a “plane ride” and present the whole cabal as a “gift” to Putin. THAT act might actually improve the Russia-U.S. “relations” and eliminate the “problem” here.

          19. GuardianFlame says

            I love that idea! Maybe we should write P.T. and suggest it? It would take care of such a huge instigator of the Left’s clueless actions. Maybe we could throw in Hillary and slick Willy to cinch the deal? Or add obamster to the group too.

            Gonzalez – Black Lives Matter is funded by George Soros, a billionnaire egomaniac bent on destroying our Country. Soros influences countries to accept Socialism – which kills the economy of every Country that tries it. After the country goes belly up, Soros zooms in and picks up the pieces at a radically low price which he sells off and makes millions of dollars.

            BLM is Soros’ CHAOS MACHINE! He tells them where to go and what to do to cause dissension and anger – and he funds it all hoping the U.S. will fail and he can make a killing in picking up the pieces. BLM is a bad organization that only is used to create dissension, not to work anything out.

            You must research on the web Georgy Soros, native of Hungary with a price on his head from Hungary, Belgium, and several other countries for illegal acts causing monetary failure of the country. Soros is a snake – Black Lives Matter is his rattle and chaos Is his bite.

The Universities are at fault for even recognizing those wimps as being important enough to remove American Historical Statues.

        What are these brats going to want next? Remove the Washington Monument because Washington had slaves or perhaps dig up the Unknown Soldier’s tomb because he represents war? If we don’t put a stop to what these children are doing now, they will destroy every reminder of how we became a country. If they truly do NOT like our Statues, etc., THEY CAN LEAVE THE U.S. and GO TO ANOTHER COUNTRY to live. Show them the way with a good swift kick to the butt as they leave.

            As long as it stays in Illinois. If they make it a federal day of recognition, I’m gonna hurl!
            This is a funny oxymoron….There are now calls to blast the images off of Stone Mountain, in GA., and Mt. Rushmore. In the midst of that madness, some demented Senator or Congressman wants to put Obama up ON Mt. Rushmore! Wouldn’t both of those acts be defacing federal property? LOL

          2. richard king says

            Anyone who attempts to damage Mount Rushmore should be shot on sight.
            I see no reason to put Obama, the worst president in history and a traitor, anywhere but the Chicago dump.

          3. Lisa Meyer says

            I agree wholeheartedly! I posted elsewhere that if I hear of this attempt going thru, I will go to Mt. Rushmore and chain myself to Lincoln’s forehead. I urge EVERYONE to be vigilant for reports of this being allowed, and to go there and stand in protest! Climb the barriers and place yourself where they will not be able to blast or bulldoze. Do like the left is doing and get vocal about our disapproval of all this stupidity. THEY get noticed! It’s time the REAL AMERICANS get noticed too!

        2. Kurt Hanssen says

          They pulled down General Lee, and put up a black pregnant lady on the same platform. so you got a good point.

          1. Lisa Meyer says


          2. Kurt Hanssen says

            No joke. That was all over the news, some where arrested. BLM put up the statue of a black pregnant lady on general lee’s pedastol. Have not heard much after that. All those hate groups are financed by Soros, cut off the money supply and they got to go back to work, Spros is a little sore ased for loosing a Billion betting against TRUMP.

          3. Lisa Meyer says

            Was this in TX or VA? And please tell me that the statue was not left in place. If ANY statue should replace Gen. Lee, it should be Heather Heyer!

      9. Justin Seine says

        Nobody ever accused them of being overly bright.

      10. Grassroots says

        Jumping to conclusions and attempting to predict the future? History is not being replaced or erased. History remains intact.

        Erecting statues of dead treasonous generals seems like an odd choice anyway, considering that most of the statues were erected well after the Civil War had ended. The South lost the war. Yet the South continues to perpetuate the fallen honor of men who chose to rebel against their own country.

        So tell me again, why would anyone want to honor the losers?
        Is it nostalgia for, basically, criminals?
        You don’t want to believe the South was on the wrong side of justice and the American way?
        You wish slavery had never ended and you want to glorify those who would have continued to enslave other human beings?

        This is not an Obama problem. This is a problem manufactured by overzealous rebel “patriots” who would prefer to ignore the reality that they lost the war.

    2. Allen Cecelia Tennison says

      Thank you well said. I home schooled my son and he was the better for it. I believe the states ought to let us not pay taxes to schools if we don’t have children in them also. Let the bleeding liberals finance their own propaganda system.

      1. MAHB001 says

        Well said, I agree, I am told that if 10% of the American people pulled their precious children out of public schools the system would collapse.

        The system needs to collapse.

        1. ARJAY says

          That’s what I’ve been saying. If enough parents remove their children from the public INDOCTRINATION centers and HOME school them, there will not be enough money to support the FIXED expenses of those buildings. The schools are funded by the number of students that are IN SCHOOL on the STUDENT COUNT days.

          Just imagine if 10%, 15% or 20% of parents pulled their children from those places. The funding shortfall would be huge!!!!!!!

          I can guarantee (almost 100%) that there are MORE than 20% of parents that are Republican, Conservative and/or Christian in EVERY public indoctrination center “school” districts! Imagine if they ALL removed their children and HOME SCHOOLED them!!

          PROBLEM SOLVED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          1. jim_wright says

            This is one of the reasons that the left is so steadfastly against any form of school choice. The left doesn’t want any competition showing how bad many of the public school teachers supported by teacher’s unions really are.

          2. PatriotGal says

            True, aside from public schools being funded from local property taxes, there is what us called FTE Full Time Equivalent money from the Feds. Headcounts are taken on a particular day near the beginning of the school year. Often, schools will “beg” you to be sure to send your children to school that day even of they don’t feel well – they must stay till noon. That is how the district’s Fed $$ are allocated, and how many are included in “low income – poor and reduced Fed meals” which also includes breakfasts and lunches, as well as those students who are classified as ESE Exceptional Student Education. Those are your “handicapped/learning disabled” students: gifted, ADHD, ADD, psychological problems, depressed, etc., etc. ESE departments receive additional funding for those students. Those are WFTE weighted FTE.

          3. richard says

            all good points,but sadly a lot of “parents” use schools as baby sitters only…

          4. ARJAY says

            Unfortunately, you are correct! Very expensive babysitters, eh?

      2. Torii says

        Excellent point.

        1. Bob says

          Well said. It takes a lot of effort to really get effectively involved. Much time is required but worth it. Join your local party and go to meetings. Meet the people you are voting for, and hold them accountable. Campaign for the worthy and support them with money etc. We can take back America but you need to learn the truth. Not something you heard. Lack of effort by the voters, is what has gotten us into this mess.

      3. Patricia Eddy says

        If you live in a school system where the parents participate in the school activities and programs as I do, you have an excellent school system. We check and know what our children are being taught. Get involved. If we don’t like it,we do something about it. Don’t sit back and wring your hands.

        1. jaybird says

          That is what needs to happen but so many families with young children have both parents working and are always exhausted when they get home do not know everything that is going on in the schools. My grandson has 2 (boy & girl) that are very smart, well behaved that are always trying out new things when parents are not looking. I try to make them aware of what is happening at schools. The boy is in Conservative pre-kindergarten and the girl starts public kindergarten in Sept.

          1. Patricia Eddy says

            That is great. Keep trying to keep abreast of the school actions and become involved yourself. Good Job.

    3. gotcha1 says

      Great point and profound!

    4. Goodforall says

      Oh, they can learn plenty-like caving in to fear and oppression, as well as total ignorance about our history. I’m a native Texan and knew how leftist UT and the Austin area was. But I figured they still had some semblance of a spine left. But I was wrong, they are totally gutless.

      1. PatriotGal says

        Used to LOVE TX, but no more. Even private, religious universities leave extremely much to be desired, especially Baylor.

      2. Michael Dennewitz says

        What type of statue will they erect in those places, ones of hitler or ovomit?? 😣🙁☹😭

        1. MAHB001 says

          Stalin, Lenin, Mao….

        2. Jerry says

          May as well go ahead and erect one of Soros.

        So sad. Once the patriots of Texas fall, it’s all over.

    5. ABO says

      Well stated and inspired MAHB. Thank you for that.

    6. GuardianFlame says

      Our public Schools have become nothing more than brainwashing institutions. They don’t teach math nor spelling, nor history, but teach that Homosexuals are just as normal as heterosexuals. Have you noticed the amount of Gays on TV these days playing kissy face with each other — or even going so far as the almost full sex act? Yes, disgusting beyond words…even during the dinner hour when children might be watching TV. Gays have always been in the DRAMA field, dancing, etc., but now they are exhibiting their sexual side on TV — not caring who and how old they are watching their actions. SAD for many reasons but for one especially. Our children do NOT understand the Gay’s logic.

      Gays are a subculture of our American Culture, but they demand front center stage and scream they are normal — they are not. The reason males and females are on this earth is to procreate. Two males cannot create nor can two females. It takes a male and a female. Yet some male Gays adopt a child and try to raise it only to find that the child develops major issues as he/she matures. Sorry, no male can take the place of a female Mother. They can come close, but that’s it. So then we have a young teen who is so confused and actually singled out at school for having no Mother and 2 Dads thus creating additional emotional trauma. This is not a winning situation. And there are no natural children from this union. If enough Gays bond together, it will drop the population numbers big time, while creating a future adults with major emotional issues should they adopt.

      Our public schools are brainwashing our young kids as young as 7 and 8 years old about sex, homosexuality, and transgenderism (the last two sub cultures created by the Liberals). They are being taught that these “conditions” are normal as everything else and should be accepted as normal and if they want to experience any of them, they should try to find a way to do it. Believe me, many of the instructors (especially in High School) are already Gay, so they are very enthusiastic about these lessons. My own Grandson was exposed to his Gay teacher’s lesson plan on “How normal Homosexuality is” and called her on what the Bible said — that Gays were sinners! After screaming at him for a few minutes she kicked him to the Principal and told the remaining students that nothing Negative about Gays would be allowed in class or they would follow my grandson. My grandson was removed from that public school by my son and now attends a Christian High School, lettered in 2 sports, is on student council and a very happy “Unconfused” teenager with a 4.0+ GPA.

      So why don’t teachers allow a normal discussion on the pros and cons of homosexuality instead of kicking students out when they raise opposing opinions? Because, the teachers know themselves that what they are doing isn’t normal and if they allow discussions to evolve, they could be made to be abnormal and having issues themselves. No, Gay teachers want more Gay kids so the teachers won’t feel so vulnerable. But they ARE vulnerable and are using our kids as their guinea pigs…wrong.

      Homosexuality has no place being discussed in any classroom…period. That is a decision that might come later in adult life, but does not need to add more confusion and frustration to any teenage life that is already full of raging hormones and emotional disturbances.

      The Liberal Left — along with George Soros’ $$ — is doing the worst thing possible to all of children. They are incubating abnormal thoughts at a very young age. Children that young do not understand what the teacher is talking about thus producing guilt and shame from the child. But the Gay teachers do not give a damn about what the children think or feel — they want their agenda to rule all others.

      It must stop NOW! Whether it is about destroying statues or learning about Homosexuality as being normal (it is NOT), or learning that little Sally is really little Sammy, our children have become guinea pigs in the Left’s Science Projects and this will create a very disturbing and confusing future for us all. Without boundaries and rationality, children go AWOL — expose a Nation to the same parameters and it causes a Nation to fragment. THESE actions are exactly what George Soros wants to happen to the U.S…fragmentation, chaos, distraction. He/they are doing this through our children, the innocents that we’d never believe could turn the tables on our Country…but they are doing just that.

      Unless some very emotionally strong Parents can pull their offspring aside and discuss what they are doing, these actions will continue as long as we have Gay teachers (should be a test that qualifies whether they are Gay or not). Answer: Only straight teachers allowed to teach our children the 4 R’s, NO Political B.S. allowed in the classroom, and keep the communication doors open between parents and kids at all times! Don’t forget bringing God back into the Family to help guide us…that should do it. Can that happen? Only if all sane people make an action to make it so…and Political Correctness is trashed along with its creators, the Liberal Left. It’s up to each of us to decide how important our kid’s futures are.

    7. Lisa Meyer says

      I can’t believe that of all the places in this country, TEXAS, the last bastion of freedom-loving and defending Americans, begins to fold. :”'(

      1. MAHB001 says

        Sad, but true, we must all stand up to this tyranny and do it now.

        1. Lisa Meyer says

          I will just make a point here that everyone is aware of, but that I absolutely DO NOT agree with…
          If we stand up to the tyranny of the alt left and the revisionists, we are labeled racists. It seems, in the Age of Obama, that only the screaming left gets what it wants. The REAL Americans are racist, mysoginistic, Xenophobic, etc. etc. etc.. In short, we are just haters. (Say the real haters)

          1. MAHB001 says

            So it is time to accept our faults and stand up for our heritage, most of all, stand up for the truth…

            Note that none of what you said was true…. It is time we stand for the truth.

            We are damned if we do, and damned if we don’t…. During the Age of 0bama we did nothing. Time to try something else…. God Bless.

          2. Lisa Meyer says

            I’m not sure which part of my post you think is untrue. I don’t know about you, but Trump supporters, IE: REAL AMERICANS, have been labeled with those terms and worse ever since the campaign. I KNOW they aren’t true, if that is what you are referring to, as well as you do. It doesn’t stop the real haters from saying that about us. Every time I have disagreed with a lefty, esp. since the Charlottesville debacle, I get called racist, stupid, hateful, liar, and a host of other names. The left gets to exercise its 1st Amendment rights, but no one else does, and I for one am dam-ed sick and tired of it! (Not the name-calling. That just shows how childish and irrelevant their posits are). I agree with you that WE DO need to stand up and push back. But it seems most people talk a good game from behind their keyboards, but aren’t stepping up into the front lines.

          3. MAHB001 says

            So to be clear, I realize that the Left would have us believe that REAL Americans are racist, misogynistic, Xenophobic, etc. But NONE of those accusations are true.

            The Left has adopted an Alinsky type of arguing where they insult, bully, and accuse people to shut them up and throw in a diversion to move the conversation off the topic.

            They do this because it worked for a long time and more importantly they actually have no facts to support their arguments, not even common sense. It has been effective because good people typically shy away from conflict and are bullied into silence by PC accusations of racism and insults.

            As conservatives, we need to figure out a better way of confronting their nonsense. I am not sure I have the answers but what works for me is to challenge their “facts” by making them prove them, (most can’t) and dismissing the insults and deflections.

            All I know is that we can no longer let them lie or present half truths without challenging them.

            Your posts are spot on. God Bless.

            My red line stand is with the MEDIA.

            I believe that without MEDIA corruption, the Left would not be as far as it is.

          4. Lisa Meyer says

            Ah, I see now, what you meant. Thank you for clarifying.
            You are right about most shying away from conflict. I have been guilty of that as well, and I TRY not to start off confrontational with anyone, even if I know they have been violently vocal towards others. It never lasts for long though, as the left cannot have civil discourse, and always result to name calling, insults, pseudo-shaming, lying and distractions. Then claim that is the go-to tactic of the right. Laughable. I will only toy with the trolls for so long though. I dont have the time or patience to try to be civil and explain to those who are incapable of learning, or who are only on these boards to willfully cause trouble.
            I absolutely refuse to watch news on tv anymore. I know reporters are lying as soon as I see their lips moving, and CNN is dead to me as any type of reliable and objective news source. I will check out your link, though. How did you manage to post that, by the way? 😉
            Thank you for your compliment, and God Bless you also!

          5. MAHB001 says

            Your rules of engagement seem to be very similar to my rules of engagement. And that is to only push back as hard as others push back…

            In other words, do unto others as they would have done to others…. 🙂

            Now when I am dealing with trolls, I speak not to the troll but to the people that may be reading the posts. They are worth the effort, even if the troll has been lost…

            Please consider joining as you do not have to watch the news anymore, I do it for you. What we are doing is politely asking the advertisers to move their ads off the offending “news” program time slots. This is a proven effective method of effecting change.

            Stay safe, hope to run into you more often.

          6. Lisa Meyer says

            Trolls are always lost whenever they come out from under their bridges. LOL

            So, your boycott is effective, then, eh? OK. I have not had time yet to go check out the site. I am still trying to catch up with all of my replies to people here, while having computer issues and dealing with the trials of Disqus. But I promise I will look into it soon.

            I am here at FTN, and also post on the Newsmax board under the pseudonym, PHOENIX_RISING, so you will see me around!

          7. MAHB001 says

            Is the boycott effective? Yes they are, but not mine so far. It seems that conservative boycotts do not carry the same weight as the Lefts do.

            Note that just about every company that joined the boycott against Bill O’Reilly has refused to even recognize my boycott. The same goes for the companies that boycotted Sean Hannity.

            But, we will soldier on, and will not be ignored. The hard part is spreading the word. I am not asking for money at the time, and have no advertising budget. The site has been blacklisted numerous times, and communications has been interrupted by “unknown” sources.

            The playing field is not a level one. .

          8. Lisa Meyer says

            Be patient and persistent. Sometimes these things take time to gain momentum. And you must also remember that at this point in time, there are more leftist haters than their are reasonably calm, sane, and civil people. There are also more companies run by CEOs who don’t have the sense to see past their bottom line and their bottom feeding ideals. This was never made more evident than when all of those dead brains jump ship from Trump’s Business panels in the wake of Charlottesville.
            It’s a game of numbers your dealing with, and right now the left is employing bigger numbers with bigger mouths. I hate to say it again, but we civil people may just have to start getting loud and violent too. We’ve already been accused of causing problems. Might as well live up to it.
            Have you put your website out on social media like Facebook and Twitter and all of those places? That’s the best, fastest, and cheapest way to get the word out.
            Keep the faith and keep at it! One of these days, the tide will turn and your efforts will bear fruit!

          9. MAHB001 says

            I am not sure about there being more Leftist haters than reasonably calm and sane people. I think that he Leftist haters have taken up key positions within the society and the MEDIA magnifies their impact with lies.

            I believe that once the corruption is taken out of the MEDIA, the Lefts house of cards will fall down on its own.

            That is why I fight against the MEDIA at

            I have the site on both Facebook and Twitter, but I am not as proficient at promoting the site on those forums. Still working on it.

            God Bless.

          10. Lisa Meyer says

            You’re right, of course, about the corrupt, lying media. I’m not so sure that the corruption will ever go away, though.
            Did you see the article today that said that three more people had been arrested in Charlottesville? Not one mention of which “side” they were on. You know what that means.
            If you have your website on FB and Twitter., then word is getting out. One person shares it with all of their friends, and pretty soon thousands, then hundreds of thousands, then millions see it. You can’t make everyone agree with you and join, and of course there are those in other countries that aren’t affected, but at least the word is spreading.

    8. 4freedom says

      What the learn is progressive hate in modern schools, what a shame.

      1. MAHB001 says

        It is sad, kids need to start thinking for themselves, and more importantly, parents need to re-think the higher level school systems payback potential and pull their kids from these indoctrination centers.

    9. ToadStoolManor1 says

      …they fall for anything and EVERYTHING!

    10. Liz says

      Or a school that doesn’t want to teach true history, only indoctrination into either Islam through the Common Core Curriculum or socialism. They refuse to teach the true reason for the Civil War, they preach slavery when in truth it was not. It was economics, the freedom of slaves came during the Civil War as I said not the cause… Also referring to slavery, Black Muslims sold the African Blacks into slavery and Blacks in America also owned slaves. It wasn’t just the Whites that owned them during that time but that is what Liberals want all to believe. People need to research on their own instead of just taking someone’s word.

      1. MAHB001 says

        I recognize this as a form of revisionist history, and reject it all.

        If the version of history concludes that America is evil, I reject it. We need to teach our children to do the same.

    11. Ron C says

      Colleges are nothing but indoctrination centers pumping out useless, useful idiot’s.

    Just another reason for me to cheer for any other team playing the Longhorns.

  4. MILES E DRAKE says

    This is no great surprise – we know that the universities are now nothing but madrassahs of marxism, and those that run them are either invertebrate intelligentsia or the scrofulous hippies of the 1960s rioting now grown gray and paunchy. The concern is what will replace them on the pedestals, and it is likely to be Alinsky, Castro, Guevara and Obongo. Already in Virginia, epicenter of the Soros-funded revolution, they plan to replace a vandalized Confederate memorial with the statue of a rapper. The momentarily-ascendant left need to remember that American-born anglophone heterosexual European-Americans can pull statues down, too.

  5. ImOffendedTreatMeSpecial says

    No they can protest them all in one place, the Brisco Center for hiding history.

      Next they are coming after the constitution, think that is there goal, we know that was NObummers mission.

      1. John Williams says

        Yes, in fact they already are. My above post would not allow the caption I had with it. A picture of a “Ronald McDonald” statue being removed because Taco Bell employees found it offensive, when the PC weenies are done, nothing will be allowed if it offends just one person, God save us from these brain dead fools.

        1. Kurt Hanssen says

          How come teachers and professors has ended up so far left, in return they are brain washing and poison there students. Nobummer was a Comi, belive he started this BLM, Antifa, and the rest of this upraising together wit the Clinton Mafia and Soros

  8. Grassroots says

    Finally, here’s hope that the South can heal from their lost and treasonous war against the United States. Statues erected to honor treasonous perpetrators of civil war have no place in our country.

    1. Rummy C says

      You are a sadly uninformed moron.

      1. Grassroots says

        History won’t be changed by removing statues glorifying treasonous acts.

        1. Rummy C says

          Really? Now isn’t that a brilliant observation.

          People like you will not stop with the Confederate statues. You hate the idea of America and the history of America. Next it will be Washington and Jefferson. Already, Columbus is under assault. People like you will not be happy until America is destroyed and remade in your ideal image — a socialist utopia for all.

          Let me assure every one of you that America will not be fundamentally changed as long as troglodytes, like me, still have a breath in our bodies. Houston, and Texas, just showed what independent, hard working,
          free thinking people do when faced with a disaster. New Orleans showed what people enslaved by government programs do in the same circumstances.


          1. Grassroots says

            Jumping to conclusions, mind-reading, and black and white thinking are invalid patterns of thought. For example:

            1. Mind-reading: “You hate the idea the idea of America and the history of America.”
            2. Jumping to conclusions: “People like you will not be happy until America is destroyed…”
            3. Black and white thinking: “New Orleans showed what people enslaved by government programs do…” [People are either independent, hard working, free thinking or enslaved. No middle ground.]

            Perhaps a compromise could be reached. For every confederate statue allowed to remain, a statue of a notable black person from the Civil War would be erected next to it or nearby. Following are 10 excellent examples of heroic black soldiers (Source:

            1. John Lawson, awarded the Medal of Honor for his heroism in single-handedly continuing to supply ammunition to the deck guns on his ship despite serious injuries to one leg.
            2. James Daniel Gardner, given the Medal of Honor for his actions to stop a confederate officer from rallying his troops.
            3. Miles James, who, despite being urged to retreat and told that he needed immediate amputation of his mutilated arm, proceeded to lead his men, firing and reloading his pistol with a single arm, all within 100 feet of the enemy line.

            Those 10 black people are among the true heroes of the Civil War. They fought for the preservation of the United States of America against secessionist rebels who would have destroyed America to protect slavery. Patriots, every one of them, they stand head and shoulders above the treasonous confederate generals and their armies.

          2. Rummy C says

            It does not require a mind reader to expose a group thinking, liberal socialist. In your haste to promote an agenda that no one else cares about, you always, always overplay your hand. Why would you suggest erecting statues to honor only black soldiers? Why not statues honoring “ALL” soldiers who defended the union? That would be the right thing to do, but it does not fit the anti white, anti America, agenda you have been trained to promote. If the men on your list were such notable heroes, their home towns have been free to erect statues, monuments and memorials in their honor. Why should another town be forced to erect a statue honoring someone they do not know, and do not care about, unless your motivation is to humiliate the town for having the audacity to honor their Confederate dead. You are such a boor.

            And for the middle ground, what is that middle ground? Not hard working and enslaved by government programs? Hard working and enslaved? Free thinking and enslaved? I miss the point since you failed to make one. I rest my case on the difference in disaster response by the citizens of Houston and the citizens of New Orleans. One is , “we need help, let’s do it.” The other is, “we need help, where is it?”

            AMERICA FIRST

    2. Skippy says

      I know why you mindless liberal drones want these statues removed, it’s because these men was Democrats. You don’t want the people to remember that fact.
      TTFN mindless liberal drone!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. tCotUS says

    The H*** raised in America has NOTHING to do with Statues, Racism, but taking down America Period!!…Look how many pussy Universities/Governors/Congressmen have folded to just to pacify a few cry babies.
    Shaun King is a known liar,Bigot who presents himself as a justice warrior,this BLM leader called for the shootings of police.. Antifa, their leadership is hidden within BAMN (By Any Means Necessary). Although BAMN claims to be civil rights organization it was originally an openly communist group. Then we have Radical Liberal Communist/Socialist
    Mike Wilson is a national leader of Antifa, he works at UC Berkeley.
    Shanta Driver(Attorney Detroit) is the top national leader for Antifa with direct communist ties.
    Defense Fund (UEAALDF), which is a 501 organization registered to Donna Stern, Sacramento,Ca Organizer of BAMN
    BAMN was investigated in 2005 for engaging in terrorist activities. There were reports that they had ties to several terrorist organizations such as the East Lansing Animal Rights Movement (ELARM), Direct Action, and to the North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) . ….And still no arrests..Or how about Jason Kessler Con-Man, White Nationalist works for the Democratic Soros money machine lead the protests in Charlotte.. Then we have Linda Sarsour(NYC queen of hate) a lead organizer of the Women’s March on Washington and one of the most high-profile Radical Muslim activist with strong ties to Jihad..
    Question is; what will we fold for before taking a stand?

    1. Lisa Meyer says

      Maybe we should bring back the Salem witch Trials. All those you listed qualify, and obviously our illustrious and leaderless Justice Dept., led by (from behind) spineless Sessions is not going to do anything about all of these terrorist organizations springing up across America under the guises of “benevolent assistance associations”. You also forgot CAIR and the Southern Poverty Law Center.

  10. ImOffendedTreatMeSpecial says

    The best part is these dorks don’t even know what they are protesting. Take Bobby Lee for example:
    Robert E Lee was married to George Washington’s granddaughter. He worked with Grant during the Mexican-American war and became a decorated war hero defending this country He believed slavery was a great evil and his wife broke the law by teaching slaves to read and write. After the civil war he worked with Andrew Johnson’s program of reconstruction. He became very popular with the northern states and the Barracks at West Point were named in his honor in 1962. He was a great man who served this country his entire life in some form or other. His memorial is now being called a blight. No American military veteran should be treated as such. People keep yelling, “You can’t change history.” Sadly you can. This is no better than book burnings. ISIS tried rewriting history by destroying historical artifacts. Is that really who we want to emulate?

    1. Ellen says

      I agree with what you said except that I do not think George Washington has a granddaughter, unless she was from his wife. But I could be wrong so please correct me, if I am.

      1. teachersaide says

        George Washington & Martha had NO children. He looked upon Martha (a widow) Custis’ children as his own. LIBERALS want nothing to do with FACTS! It’s all about “feelings”, which sounds VERY 2’nd grade, at best.

    2. John Wilch says

      General Lee was Grant’s and Sherman’s Commanding Officer during the Mexican-American war and as you say he worked with Johnson during the reconstruction.

      These uneducated idiots are being paid (In my opinion) by Soros and his cronies, like Clinton, o Hussein b, Pelosi, Chuckie Schumer and others in their quest to destroy the United States.

    When the Nazis took over in Germany one of the first things they did was remove and destroy all of the statues they deemed offensive.

    Sound familiar?


    1. Lisa Meyer says

      And the left calls us Nazi’s. Hypocrites.

  12. Peggie says

    ?These statues are a part of our history! That’s all they are, they are harming no one, and removal of
    them will not change history. Stop allowing people to try to destroy something that happened years ago.
    Get over it, it has long past! The reminders are there to help prevent it happening again.

    1. jim_wright says

      But, they wouldn’t have excuse for their continued self-induced failure that the left perpetuates.

  13. Rummy C says

    Either the left or wimps are in control of these institutions and municipalities and they are happy to fall all over themselves to obliterate America as we know it. Conservatives must stand strong against the loudmouths who would change our history and our way of life. The loudmouth left intimates the wimps. It is time that we intimidate them. Do not let them control the narrative like they did at the Charlottesville city council meeting. Get out of your conservative comfort zone and challenge them face-to-face.


  14. Justin Seine says

    That ought to make Black Lives Better! What next? Tear down all the fast food restaurants because they don’t pay their employees bank president salaries? Tear down the schools because the tests are too hard for some? Take over gated communities, throw out the residents and move in because it’s not fair that people who have never held a job can’t live in nice places? Get Effin REAL – You want it? EARN IT! Stop blaming everyone else for you failures!

      Well said.!!!!!!!

  15. lostproton says

    This is the Islamic/Muslim press to rule the world under Shariah Law. They will blow up the Stone Mountain Confederate Memorial in Georgia and then Mount Rushmore in South Dakota all to remove all “likenesses” that is defined in the Qur’an, which is why ISIS destroyed the carved Buddha statues in Afghanistan and other Buddhist and Hindu statues. ISIS is here in the United States posing as ANTIFA. Islam sided with Hitler in WWII that is well documented, just look it up. Get a PDF, untainted, English translation of the Qur’an from a Saudi Arabian ISP site and READ IT. Islam is here, not to assimilate but to annihilate all infidels in it’s quest to rule the world.

  16. Allen Cecelia Tennison says

    The public schools and colleges have been corrupted for years. I don’t believe we should be asked to pay taxes to fund the liberal agenda

  17. Ellen says

    I am not for hate and bigotry but history is history. What has happened before cannot be undone and should be left for us to learn. What would be next? Any strong movement that can send us to the brink of more violence and chaos? This should be still the land of laws and sense.

  18. Skippy says

    The only reason why the Democraps want these statues removed is because all the men these statues are of, are democrats. They don’t want people reminded of that fact. The Democraps want to rewrite history.

    people of America we have to stand up for our history quit listening to yahoo,google tv paper research real news texas shouldn’t have taken statues down enough with being slaves to demon-crat KKK ISIS communist party take our govt back arrest all for treason

  23. Ken Yellig says

    Idiots. It shows total disregard for the people that originally paid to place that statue there.

  24. Austinniceguy says

    Absolute lunacy is taking over this country. Those idiots have been on track to become incredibly liberal for decades and it has finally taken control. Those statues have NEVER stood for slavery but the idiots from the left are running out of things to cry about so this was their natural next step. What they don’t understand is that they are setting precedent for other groups to take action against our country because of things THEY find offensive. CAIR is now gearing up with a few lawsuits of their own to make OUR country more amenable to the savage animals the elephant eared idiot brought here under the guise of “refugees”. Let’s see how the brain dead lefties like it when their sensibilities are offended by the sand box dwellers.

  25. buffalobob826 says

    This president is no better that the Nazis and Hitler. When is Texas state going to start burning books that doesn’t agree with them.

    1. bendecido says

      Can you offer us some proof of how this president is no better than the Nazis and Hitler? Since when, were the Nazis and Hitler trying to make their country great? They were out to destroy them. Mr. President Trump is already making America great again. Don’t listen to the liberal media, they will continue to confuse you. I believe you have a brain to make your own decisions, not by what they are telling you which is fake news. I am not trying to insult you by my remarks. Just saying. ok?

      1. buffalobob826 says

        I didn’t mean President Trump I meant the president of Texas U

    ignorant lefturd snowflakes disappear!! DO IT NOW!!

  28. movingwaters says

    The Left gets it’s energy and warped direction from itself. What happened in Charlottesville is that a Soros operative who is also tied in with other Soros protests played the role of an angry white supremacist. He even hit an killed a young lady with his car. He says he was red pilled into it. Make no mistake. He is a Soros operative. Apparently they are now playing both sides of the war they are creating. And left wing mayors are having police stand down, as in Charlottesville, and let them wreak havoc. I consider the mayor of Charlottesville to be responsible for the death of that young woman, not systemic racism or the presence of Civil War statues that are part of our history. Revolutionaries ALWAYS make it a point to remove their intended victims points of reference as to their cultural identity and national heritage. Soros wants everyone to have a new identity as a dumbed down, mentally ill, mind wiped slave of the Global Government.

    President Trump has more than enough information to have George Soros arrested for sedition against this country. Other countries, such as Hungary and Israel, have already said he will be arrested if he enters their country. Soros hires slothful, directionless people via Craigslist and pays them to be violent and destruction against decent citizens. Then the various leftists in authority claim that everyone is racist who disagrees. This is straight out of Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. Hillary and Obama are disciples of this radicalism. This destruction will not stop until ordinary Americans get off their duffs and recall errant Mayors and other officials.

    We Americans can ‘t destroy our heritage fast enough! What fearful lemmings!

  30. Lee Berry says

    I question the real motive of this UT ‘president.’ He supposedly is a highly educated and informed individual. His actions show otherwise. (Some please check recent LARGE deposits from donors not connected with this university!)
    IF this man were truly informed he would admit that slavery was around thousands of years BC. If he were aware, there are statues that memorialize Greek, Roman, Muslim, and other societies that strongly dealt in slavery. The slaves were of all races – not just blacks. If the world abhorred statues – they would have long been gone even before the construction of UT.
    The snowflakes attacking statues and people are following the game-book of Hitler (for one) to bring the entire nation to its knees. I say, leave the statues where they are – and start educating those that cry ‘offended’ to every pin-drop – and quit caving in to their itty-bitty feelings. If they want to act lawlessly – put their butts in a ready-made fema camp to have their own guarded dwelling away from the more knowing and agreeable population. They can out-shout each other in there and we won’t have to see their attention antics on the news any longer.

    1. Lisa Meyer says

      Excellent post, Lee. I agree and wish I could upvote you 1000x!

  31. Richard Start says

    Book burners have taken over education is what this means. They no longer teach anything about the good our country has done and only look at the negative aspects. History is not something that can be judged by the standards we are living today since those who formed our history did not have our history to shape theirs, they only had their own and it was harsh cruel and in need of growth, the growth we now have! Do you look back at your youth and punish yourself for every misstep made? Are you going back to each and every person you made life hard for and apologizing, repaying or confessing? Are you admitting all the way back to the age of first memory? Before you understood? At one time people thought different about a number of subjects do you know how? That is history and understanding history includes understanding how they thought and why they did things even if you don’t like the answers! Our educators are taking the easy route and not teaching history. They are allowing students to assume people knew better and were mean. They thought differently and some believed they were helping but what is it our schools won’t teach these student’s? Ask your teacher’s because if they don’t know the answers they are not educator’s

  32. AE says

    What will be next bulldozing the Alamo, after all was that not an effort to keep out non Americans?

  33. PatriotGal says

    I think the left has reached the hight of stupidity with today’s announcement that sports caster Robert Lee ( an ASIAN) has been removed from his position by ESPN because of his name. That man is ASIAN – his lineage is the Chinese Lee family, not Robert E. Lee, and even if it were, that is an asinine, moronic, idiotic, racist, thing to do.

    1. bttrap says

      we have to boycot espn for that most stupid move ever created by the left this should remind all voters how stupid they are next election

    2. Lisa Meyer says

      Mr Lee should sue ESPN for racism and discrimination.

      1. bttrap says

        I agree espn really screwed up now

  34. RichFromShowMe says

    Will the next step by UT and many other “educational institutions” be to burn books of the Civil War era and raise statues to the Grand Kleagle of WV, Senator Robert “KKK” Byrd who is still held in high esteem by many of the more unhinged Democrats?

    Following in Hitler’s steps . . . . this does compute.

  35. Michael Dennewitz says

    And the saddest part is, the dumbasses removing the statues don’t even know the history behind them.. THIS is the shit being taught in today’s universities! God help today’s children!! 😣☹😢

  36. OldretiredSFdude says

    UT should be ashamed of itself. They just lost a fan. But then that is typical of the Austin liberal left mentality. What a pity.

  37. drantigmo says

    About time the rest of America wakes up to the vileness of worshiping “heroes” whose only goal was the enslavement of other human beings. It never made sense to me…at least we are finally seeing some sense especially in our town governments and schools.

    For all of those who make claim that these statutes represent history of tradition: yes, they do. And that history and tradition are the very reason they must go. All of these haters screaming for their civil war “heroes” would be the first to cry out in agony were they the enslaved victims of another. They would be the first to cry: “where are our saviors?” And they would be the first in line to oppose statutes to their former “owners.”

    1. bttrap says

      they’re statues you idiot I promise they won’t make you a slave so leave them alone they have been there for years and nothing happened to you did it?

  38. Patricia Eddy says

    Too bad the uneducated schoolboard doesn’t realize that Robert E. Lee did not own any slaves. He was just fighting for the freedom of the people of the South. I am a northern and know that much. Get real people these agatators are just out for excitment not any purpose. Educate your students so they can judge correctly.

  39. Michael Dennewitz says

    Little by little, “they’re” taking it away from us, and WE THE PEOPLE sit back and DO NOTHING ! 😣🙁☹😢😭

    Take down those stupid Martin Luther King signs .They are offensive to me .And especially take down all those Custer names and statues on Native American Indian land . I am sure his stuff is offensive to the Native Americans . Texas just fell for the blackmail that is taking place across this country . This country has more pansies and less men with backbones .Who are those signs offending in Texas .All the illegals ?

      I’m sincerely hoping that one certain Canadian SNIPER finally wakes up and takes a shitload of them out, especially geo soros and his puppet ovomit!! 😣🤔

        that would be good

  41. Gregory Sarmas Sr. says

    The removal of statues alters students understanding and perception of history just as changing manuscripts,documents and editing of books.Let them be the judge of our heritage not the leaders or chancellors of these schools.

  43. justanagent says

    “TU” became a bastion of left wing liberalism a long time ago. Actions like this are cowardly attempts to rewrite history and misrepresent our heritage.

  48. Tiger says

    Give an inch then inch by inch you give up your history. Make sure you listen to Hitler’s speech about who is destroying Germany. You will see such a correlation with what he says and what the Ult Left and the Progressive/Communist under the guise of Democrats say today about the Right.

    1. hangem'high says

      The Germans had no out, but if U do the research you’ll find that the Jews were in high places in the Nazi party

        Yes that is why 6 million of them were fried in ovens.

        1. hangem'high says

          I’m not sticking up for what Hitler did, but he had concerns of what the Bolsheviks did to Russia!

          The Jews weren’t all that innocent, now its Europe’s turn to face the Bolsheviks wrath.

          1. hangem'high says

            If I was a German, I’d try to prevent a Bolshevik takeover; just saying


            Just like I would be against a Muslim take over!

            “Those whom don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it!”

          2. Tiger says

            The Bolsheviks were not Jews.

            ( Russian: “One of the Majority”) , plural Bolsheviks, or Bolsheviki,
            member of a wing of the Russian Social-Democratic Workers’ Party, which,
            led by Lenin, seized control of the government in Russia (October 1917) and became the dominant political power.

            You could be right, maybe it was the Zionist?


          4. Tiger says

            Again it was not Jewish. Lenin was not a Jew. He created this. Back at you here with truth time you stopped believing in lies told you that you readily and greedily ingest, due to you have an appetite to make the Jews the enemies of the world.

            By the way not Jews causing havoc daily across the world and terrorism but Muslims.


          5. hangem'high says


            I guess, how is everyone else gets their information???


            The bolshevists are using the Muslims as a weapon against the Gyom, Christians, black and white, because they stand between them and their one world order.

            Christians are brainwash into worshiping and serving Jews from birth.

          6. Tiger says

            You are beating a dead horse and I already sent you the clear and percise history of this.

            The Bolsheviks and Antisemitism

            Brendan McGeever

            Antisemitism was found across the political divide in Russia’s year of revolution.

            Early morning, October 25, 1917. Workers are taking up
            strategic points on the windswept streets of Petrograd. In the Winter
            Palace, head of the Provisional Government Alexander Kerensky anxiously
            awaits his getaway car. Outside, Red Guards have taken control of the
            central telephone station. The Bolshevik seizure of power is immanent.

            There are no lights or phones in the palace. From his window,
            Kerensky can see the Palace Bridge: it is occupied by Bolshevik sailors.
            Finally, an American embassy car is secured, and Kerensky begins his
            escape from Red Petrograd. As the vehicle turns a corner, Kerensky
            notices some graffiti, freshly painted on the palace walls: “Down with
            the Yid Kerensky, long live comrade Trotsky!”

            The slogan retains its absurdity a century on: Kerensky, of course, was not Jewish, whereas Trotsky was. What the slogan does
            point to, however, is the messy and contradictory role that
            antisemitism played within the revolutionary process. In much of the
            existing literature on the Russian Revolution, antisemitism is
            understood as a form of “counterrevolution,” as the preserve of the
            anti-Bolshevik right.

            There is, of course, much truth to this claim: the tsarist regime was
            defined by its antisemitism, and in the devastating wave of anti-Jewish
            violence that followed the October Revolution in the civil war years
            (1918–1921), the bulk of the atrocities were carried out by the White
            Army and other forces opposed to the nascent Soviet government. Yet this
            is not the full story.

            Antisemitism traversed the political divide in revolutionary Russia,
            finding traction across all social groups and political loyalties.
            Within Marxism, racism and political radicalism are often framed in
            contestation; in 1917, however, antisemitism and class resentment could
            be overlapping, as well as competing worldviews.

            February: A Revolution in Jewish Life

            The February Revolution transformed Jewish life. Just
            days after the abdication of Tsar Nicholas II, all legal restrictions
            on Jews were lifted. More than 140 statutes, totaling some thousand
            pages, were removed overnight. To mark this historic moment of
            abolition, a special meeting was convened by the Petrograd Soviet. It
            was the eve of Passover, March 24, 1917. The Jewish delegate who
            addressed the meeting immediately made the connection: the February
            Revolution, he said, was comparable with the liberation of Jews from
            slavery in Egypt.

            Formal emancipation, however, was not accompanied by the
            disappearance of anti-Jewish violence. Antisemitism had deep roots in
            Russia, and its persistence in 1917 was closely connected to the ebb and
            flow of revolution. Over the course of 1917, at least 235 attacks on
            Jews were carried out. Though totaling a mere 4.5 percent of the
            population, Jews were victims of around a third of all acts of physical
            violence against national minorities that year.

            From the moment of the February Revolution, rumors of impending
            anti-Jewish pogroms circled on the streets of Russian cities, so much
            so, that when the Petrograd and Moscow soviets assembled for their first
            meetings, the question of antisemitism was high on the agenda. Actual
            outbreaks of violence were rare in those early weeks. By June, however,
            the Jewish press began to report that “crowds of workers” were gathering
            on street corners to welcome pogromist speeches that declared the
            Petrograd Soviet to be in the hands of “the Jews.” Bolshevik leaders
            sometimes came face-to-face with such antisemitism. When walking the
            streets in early July, Vladimir Bonch-Bruevich — Lenin’s future
            secretary — encountered a crowd openly calling for anti-Jewish pogroms.
            Head bowed, he hurried on. More and more reports came in of similar

            At times, class resentment and antisemitic representations of
            Jewishness overlapped: later in July, speakers at a street-corner rally
            in Petrograd called on the crowd to “smash the Jews and the
            bourgeoisie!” Whereas, in the immediate context after the February
            Revolution, such speeches had failed to have any real traction, they now
            were drawing large audiences. It was in this context that the First
            All-Russian Congress of Soviets of Workers’ and Soldiers’ Deputies
            gathered in Petrograd.

            The Question of Antisemitism

            This First Congress of Soviets was a historic
            gathering. More than a thousand delegates from all socialist parties
            attended, representing hundreds of local soviets and some twenty million
            Russian citizens. On June 22, as reports flooded in of yet more
            antisemitic incidents, the Congress produced the Russian socialist
            movement’s most authoritative statement yet on the question of

            Drafted by the Bolshevik Evgenii Preobrazhenskii, the resolution was
            titled “On the Struggle against Antisemitism.” When Preobrazhenskii
            finished reading it aloud, a Jewish delegate rose to his feet to give it
            his wholehearted approval, before adding that while it would not bring
            back Jews murdered in the 1905 pogroms, the resolution would help heal
            some of the wounds that continued to cause so much pain in the Jewish
            community. It was passed unanimously by the Congress.

            The resolution essentially restated the long-held social-democratic
            view that antisemitism was tantamount to counterrevolution. It
            contained, however an important admission: the “great danger,” read
            Preobrazhenskii, was “the tendency for antisemitism to disguise itself
            under radical slogans.” This convergence of revolutionary politics and
            antisemitism, the resolution continued, represented “an enormous threat
            to the Jewish people and the whole revolutionary movement, since it
            threatens to drown the liberation of the people in the blood of our
            brothers, and cover in disgrace the entire revolutionary movement.” This
            admission that antisemitism and radical politics could overlap broke
            new territory for the Russian socialist movement, which until then had
            tended to frame antisemitism as the preserve of the far right. As the
            revolutionary process deepened in mid-late 1917, the presence of
            antisemitism within sections of the working class and revolutionary
            movement became an increasing problem that required a socialist answer.

            The Soviets’ Response

            By late summer, soviets had initiated a broad and
            wide-ranging campaign against antisemitism. The Moscow soviet, for
            example, organized lectures and meetings in factories on antisemitism
            throughout August and September. In the former Pale of Settlement, local
            soviets were instrumental in preventing the outbreak of pogroms. In
            Chernigov (Ukraine) in mid-August, Black Hundred accusations that Jews
            were stocking up bread led to a series of violent anti-Jewish
            disturbances. Crucially, it took a delegation from the Kiev soviet to
            organize a group of local troops to put down the unrest.

            The Provisional Government attempted to initiate its own response to
            antisemitism. In mid-September, the government passed a resolution
            promising to take “the most drastic measures against all pogromists.” A
            similar statement released two weeks later ordered government ministers
            to use “all powers at their disposal” to put down pogroms. However, with
            the transfer of power to the soviets already underway, the Provisional
            Government’s authority was in a process of disintegration. An editorial
            in the pro-government newspaper Russkie Vedomosti on October 1
            captured the situation well: “the wave of pogroms grows and expands . . .
            mountains of telegrams arrive daily . . . [yet] the Provisional
            Government is snowed under . . . the local administration is powerless
            to do anything . . . the means of coercion are completely exhausted.”

            Not so with the soviets. As the political crisis deepened and the
            process of Bolshevization continued apace, scores of provincial soviets
            established their own campaigns against antisemitism. In Vitebsk, a city
            350 miles west of Moscow, the local soviet formed a military unit in
            early October to protect the city from pogromists. The following week,
            the Orel Soviet passed a resolution to take up arms against all forms of
            antisemitic violence.

            In the Russian Far East, a meeting of the All-Siberian Soviet issued a
            resolution against antisemitism, declaring that the local revolutionary
            army would take “all measures necessary” to prevent any pogroms. This
            revealed how deeply ingrained the fight against antisemitism was within
            sections of the organized socialist movement: even in the Far East,
            where there were comparatively few Jews and even fewer pogroms, local
            soviets identified with the Jews on the Western Front suffering at the
            hands of antisemites.

            Without doubt, the soviets had become, by mid-1917, the main
            political opposition to antisemitism in Russia. An editorial in the
            newspaper Evreiskaia Nedelia (the Jewish Week)
            captured this well: “It must be said, and we must give them their dues,
            the soviets have carried out an energetic struggle against [pogroms]. In
            many places, it has only been thanks to their strength that peace has
            been restored.”

            It is worth noting, however, that these campaigns against antisemitsm
            were aimed at workers in factories and sometimes activists within the
            broad socialist movement. In other words, antisemitism was identified as
            a problem within the social base of the radical left, and even sections
            of the revolutionary movement itself. What this revealed, of course, is
            that antisemitism did not simply emanate from “above,” from the former
            tsarist establishment; it had an organic base within sections of the
            working class, and it had to be confronted as such.

            The Enemy Within

            For the Bolshevik leadership, revolutionary politics
            weren’t simply incompatible with antisemitism; they were antithetical.
            As a front-page headline in the main party newspaper Pravda
            would put it in 1918: “To be against the Jews is to be for the Tsar!”
            Yet it would be a mistake to take Lenin and Trotsky’s statements on
            antisemitism and “read off” the thoughts and feelings of the
            rank-and-file. As the events of 1917 demonstrated, revolution and
            antisemitism were not always in conflict.

            Newspaper reports from the summer and autumn of 1917 reveal that
            local Bolsheviks were frequently accused by other socialists of
            perpetuating antisemitism and sometimes even harboring antisemites
            within the party’s social base. For example, according to Georgii
            Plekhanov’s newspaper Edinstvo, when Mensheviks tried to speak
            at the Moscow barracks in the Vyborg region of Petrograd in mid-June,
            soldiers, apparently egged on by Bolsheviks, shouted “Down with them!
            They’re all Yids!” Plekhanov, we should note, was obsessively
            anti-Bolshevik by mid-1917, so this source should be treated with

            The claims were widespread, however. Around the same time, the Menshevik newspaper Vpered
            reported that Bolsheviks in Moscow shouted down Mensheviks, accusing
            them of being “Yids” who “exploit the proletariat.” When hundreds of
            thousands of workers took to the streets of Petrograd on June 18, some
            Bolsheviks reportedly tore down Bundist banners and shouted antisemitic
            slogans. In response, the Bundist Mark Liber accused the Bolsheviks of
            even being “pro-pogromist.”

            Come October, such accusations become more frequent. In the October 29 edition of Evreiskaia Nedelia,
            an editorial went so far as to claim that antisemitic “Black Hundreds”
            were “filling up the ranks of the Bolsheviks” across the whole country.

            Such claims were evidently wide of the mark. The Bolshevik leadership
            opposed antisemitism and much of the party membership took part in
            developing the cross-party response to antisemitism at the factory and
            soviet levels. Nevertheless, the notion that Bolshevism could appeal to
            far-right antisemites was not entirely without substance. On October 29,
            an astonishing editorial in the antisemitic far-right paper Groza (Thunderstorm) declared:

            The Bolsheviks have seized power. The Jew Kerensky,
            lackey to the British and the world’s bankers, having brazenly assumed
            the title of commander-in-chief of the armed forces and having appointed
            himself Prime Minister of Orthodox Russian Tsardom, will be swept out
            of the Winter Palace, where he had desecrated the remains of the
            Peace-Maker Alexander III with his presence. On October 25th, the
            Bolsheviks united all the regiments who refused to submit to a
            government composed of Jew bankers, treasonous generals, traitorous
            land-owners, and thieving merchants.

            The newspaper was immediately closed down by the Bolsheviks, but the unwelcome support alarmed the party leadership.

            What underscored moderate socialist concern about the capacity of
            antisemitism and revolution to overlap was the way Bolsheviks mobilized
            the masses, and channeled their class resentment. On October 28, when
            the revolution was in full flow, the Mensheviks’ Petrograd Electoral
            Committee issued a desperate appeal to workers in the capital, warning
            that Bolsheviks had seduced “the ignorant workers and soldiers,” and the
            cry of “All power to the Soviets!” would all too easily turn into “Beat
            the Jews, beat the shopkeepers.” For the Menshevik L’vov-Rogachevskii,
            the “tragedy” of the Russian revolution lay in the apparent fact that
            the “the dark masses (temnota) are unable to distinguish the provocateur from the revolutionary, or the Jewish pogrom from a social revolution.”

            The Jewish press echoed these concerns. According to a lead article in Evreiskaia Nedelia, “comrade Lenin and his fellow Bolsheviks call on the proletariat to ‘turn their words into action’ (pereiti ot slovo k delu), but wherever Slavic crowds gather, the turning of ‘words into action’ means, in reality, ‘striking out at the Yids.’”

            However, contrary to these alarmist predictions, in the hours and
            days immediately following the Bolshevik seizure of power, there were no
            mass pogroms in the Russian interior. Insurrection did not translate
            into the antisemitic violence that had been predicted. What the warnings
            cited above reveal is just how deeply ingrained the fear of the “dark
            masses” was among sections of the socialist left who claimed to speak in
            their name. This was especially true of the intelligentsia, who
            generally approached the notion of a proletarian uprising with horror
            due to the violence and barbarity they believed would inevitably flow as
            a result.

            What defined the Bolsheviks during this period was precisely their
            closeness to the Petrograd masses so greatly feared by the

            However, the overlap between antisemitism and revolutionary politics
            was real. Just days after the October Revolution, the writer Ilia
            Ehrenburg — soon to be one of the most prolific and well-known Jewish
            authors in the Soviet Union — sat down to collect his thoughts on the
            momentous events that had just taken place. His account stands as
            perhaps the most vivid description of the articulation between
            antisemitism and the revolutionary process in 1917:

            Yesterday I was standing in line, waiting to vote for the
            Constituent Assembly. People were saying ‘Whoever’s against the Yids,
            vote for number 5! [the Bolsheviks]’, ‘Whoever’s for world-wide
            revolution, vote for number 5!’ The patriarch rode by, sprinkling holy
            water; everyone removed their hats. A group of soldiers passing by
            started to belt out the Internationale in his direction. Where am I? Or
            is this truly hell?

            In this startling recollection, the distinction between revolutionary
            Bolshevism and counterrevolutionary antisemitism is blurred. In fact,
            Ehrenburg’s account prefigures the haunting question that would be posed
            in Isaac Babel’s civil war stories Red Cavalry: “which is the Revolution and which the counterrevolution?”

            Despite Bolshevik insistence on framing it as a purely
            “counterrevolutionary” phenomenon, antisemitism eluded such neat
            categorization, and could be found across the political divide, in
            highly complex and unexpected forms. This would be most sharply revealed
            six months later, in the spring of 1918, when the first pogroms since
            the October Revolution broke out in the former Pale of Settlement. In
            towns and cities of northeast Ukraine such as Glukhov, Bolshevik power
            was consolidated through anti-Jewish violence on the part of
            the local cadres of the party and Red Guards. The Bolshevik
            confrontation with antisemitism in 1918, then, was often a confrontation
            with the antisemitism of its own social base.

            As we mark the centenary of the October Revolution, we rightly
            celebrate it as a moment of radical social transformation, when a new
            world seemed possible. The revolution, however, should also be
            remembered in all its complications.

            Antiracism needs to be cultivated and renewed, continually. A century
            on, as we grapple with the damage done by racism to class politics,
            1917 can tell us much about how reactionary ideas can take hold, but
            also how they can be taken on and confronted.

    Remove those who break the law. Not the statues. Why is law enforcement so scared in enforcing the law? When someone destroys property it is not free speech.

    1. hangem'high says

      Because they’ve been purged for the last thirty years, and replaced with Bolsheviks

    2. Lisa Meyer says

      You know what the irony is? The Charlottesville city council, with the Mayor’s blessing, voted to remove Gen. Lee’s statue without anyone else in the community having a say or vote on it (It was in a PUBLIC Park, so it should have rated public commentary). Nothing has happened to ANY of those people, even though they were complicit in the death of Ms. Heyer (YES, ALONG WITH MANY OTHERS!)
      And yet the next day, demonstrators elsewhere pulled down another Confederate statue and some were arrested for doing it. So it goes to show that if it is state-sponsored destruction or removal of history, it’s ok, but don’t ANY of you PEONS dare to do it!

  53. TPS12 says

    So every time a group doesn’t like something will just give in and remove whatever it is. What a great educational moment. So parents with screaming children should just give them what they want.

    1. Lisa Meyer says

      This country has become so afraid of offending anyone that it is willing to rewrite or erase history and march towards Civil War. The first step has already been taken by allowing all of this civil disobedience, and a LOT of our city, state, and local government leaders are wholly to blame! Telling cops to stand down as a riot begins sets a really BAD precedent. Removing hundred year old historical monuments because a few people have felt emboldened by Obama’s “community organizing” (read, inciting to riot) and nothing has been done to make examples of them is only one quarter step down the ladder.

  54. Cecelia Henderson says

    I am so disappointed in the leadership of the University of Texas. Do they think the University is located in Chicago? We are proud of our history and our heritage. These statues haven’t “offended” anyone in 100 years, so why now? I’m sick of a miniscule section of our society forcing their beliefs on me and having our American leadership surrender to their demands.

    An answer to anyone who supports the destruction of Confederate Monuments:

    Confederate Soldiers are legal veterans… By Public Law 85-425, May 23, 1958 (H.R. 358) 72 Statute 133 states – “(3) (e) for the purpose of this section, and section 433, the term ‘veteran’ includes a person who served in the military or naval forces of the Confederate States of America during the Civil War, and the term ‘active, military or naval service’ includes active service in such forces.”

    As a result of this law the last surviving Confederate Veteran received a U.S. Military pension until his death in 1959, and from that day until present, descendants of Confederate veterans have been able to receive military monuments to place on graves from the Veteran’s Administration for their ancestors. A Confederate Veteran should therefore be treated with the same honor and dignity of any other American veteran
