In an article by the Marietta Daily Journal I found this.
“Professor William J. Cooper of Atlanta is a past president of the Southern Historical Association who taught history at Louisiana State University for 46 years and the author of many books on the South.
Cooper believes one of the factors at play here is the use of presentism, a practice of using the present to judge the past to make one feel morally superior to those who came before. It’s an unfair practice and one Cooper rejects.”
This is the first time I have seen an ism presented to the enemies to our history. The domination of our education system by the left. If you voted for Donald Trump you are labeled as deplorable,
The article continues :
” Army veteran Flynn Broady, a Democrat challenging U.S. Rep. Barry Loudermilk, R-Cassville, brought a soldier’s perspective to the debate when he told the MDJ the Stone Mountain memorial should be left alone. Whether Confederate or Union, Broady said, soldiers took up arms “because this was their land, this was their home, and they wanted to defend it. You know, that’s the only reason Robert E. Lee goes from being a general in the Union Army to being a general in the Confederate Army, because he wants to protect his home. It wasn’t to protect slavery. It was to protect his home. … Stone Mountain monument … is a monument of soldiers’ faces, Confederate soldiers, so I don’t see a reason to take it down …”
Destroying history does nothing but give leering pleasure to madmen like the Taliban, who dynamited the sixth-century Buddhas in central Afghanistan or the ISIS savages who blew up Palmyra.”
In standing up for monuments you are labeled all sorts of nasty things. Its a stand I am willing to take however.
From Communism’s 45 goals to destroy the United States…
“29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
30. Discredit the American founding fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of “the big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over. [Note: Obliterating the American past, with its antecedents in principles of freedom, liberty and private ownership is a major goal of the communists then and now.]”
Communism has been a chameleon of sorts changing to Progressive to Democratic Socialism. In many debates I have online the left does not understand why there is such a resistance to socialism and the tenets of communism. We are probably a generation away from people who see what’s happening or even care. Its prophetic to what our next generation will be facing. Its more than just a stone soldier. Its the thought that you can and will often stand alone for your beliefs.
