I hate it when I read headlines that proclaim: “The truth about the battle of Jericho!” I didn’t know there were any lies about the battle of Jericho. The headline, therefore is fake news designed to be splenetic. That applies to the current headlines about Charlottesville, Va. That was a crisis the Left couldn’t afford to pass up, if they didn’t in fact actually create it.

The mean street media want us to accept their interpretations of what that Charlottesville business was all about. Hint: It was not about Confederate statues; it’s about creating another crisis for Trump. It also opened a short time frame for other Leftists to quickly bring down more  monuments to America’s civil war across the South, before a counter-reaction sets in. Political leadership at the state and city levels often quickly acquiesce to Leftists demands instead of protecting Americas historic symbols. Remember, everything is symbolism. Nothing more.

Of course the media created catalyst to all this discord is the association of alleged neo-Nazi’s, white supremacists and KKK hoodlums defending their awful Southern Heritage that inspired the Charlottesville “riots” and, therefore, it was the Left’s holy duty to “resist” and become “vigilantes” to save America for the “snowflakes.“

Why is watching the news becoming painful? Even Fox News. Of course the neo-nazi, white supremacist, race-hating bigots are wrong, but I didn’t see that. I only saw what the media wanted me to see. They would have us believe that because we’re Southern and white that we’re automatically all racists. The Civil War settled that problem at the government level and subsequent civil rights laws, leveled the playing field for all, or should have.

Because we live in a free society bad people who have been taught political theories contrary to American nationalism, live here too. They believe so strongly in things we know are wrong, that they are willing and capable of attacking any and all dissent to defenders of that American nationalism, no matter who they are. Their goal is to “Make America Crappy Again.” (ya think that would go good on a cap?)

How we deal with these people distinguishes American exceptionalism from Socialism and dictatorships. This faux anger over historical monuments marks the potential beginning of the end of our free society. The Left have inserted the word “Hate” to symbolize everything American. Who gave them the right to say what is hateful or not? Trump was right when he said there were “bad people on both sides,” and the media, leftists politicians, anarchists and the Republican “Never Trumpers,” went nuts. How dare he equate one side with the other. It’s those wicked white people who are responsible for the “hate” on the streets. I don’t think so!

By removing these Confederate monuments we rewrite history. Many do not agree with everything the South fought for, but they miss the fact that it was “States Rights” (10th Amendment) that precipitated the first shots of that war.

So, what happens next? Destroying Mt Vernon because George Washington and Thomas Jefferson had slaves? Where will it end? Will it end? Can we not see what is going on? The Left is so caught up in their “hate” of our America, that we don’t see how keeping it alive stops the madness! What’s happening today is calculated as well as maddening. The media is responsible for promoting this hate, not white Southerners. Trump will defend America. I have faith in that unless Republicans bring him down. If that happens, America is indeed lost, forever.

Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!
