During a visit to Richmond Virginia earlier this summer my son was aghast at all the statues honoring heroes of the Confederate army.

He said it was the equivalent of going to Germany and seeing statues of Nazis.

As egregious as slavery was, it was not designed to annihilate slaves like the Nazi goal of eradicating Jews.

A large number of  Southerners who fought for the Confederacy did not own slaves.

The cause they believed they were fighting for was to preserve their way of life from Northern aggression.

We have come to believe the North fought to free the slaves as opposed to just preserving the Union.

It was really a war of cultural chauvinism.

Many of the confederate heroes enshrined in honor had proved themselves to be great Americans before the war.

I can see why either side of the equation feels the way they do.

There are many fine, upstanding and righteous individuals on both sides of this coin.

Wanting the statues up or down doesn’t make anyone inherently good or evil.

The bee in my bonnet is selective memory, selective amnesia and selective outrage.

If Harvey Fierstein admires my tie, does that make me gay?

Just because some Nazis agree with you on an issue it doesn’t make you a Nazi.

I’m all for showing Nazis the working end of a baseball bat up close and personal, but that in and of itself doesn’t make me a saint.

Stalin fought the Nazis and he’s the only person known to mankind that has any business being compared to Hitler.

The leftist  mobs who showed up in Charlottesville to disrupt the protest were not solely as my wife described, “peaceful college kids”.

They were another bunch of Nazi thugs with different flags and different hats.

But the bigger issue for me is this.

If the statues of Confederates and the Stars and Bars are to be banned because of their association with slavery, let’s be thoroughly consistent.

Take the the statues and rename the streets, schools and institutions named for the following.

Any New England sea captain or ship owner.

Any industrialist who manufactured clothes made from cotton.

Any wholesaler or retailer who sold those finished goods.

Any southern landed gentry who owned a plantation.

And most importantly, any politician or office holder of any level who was a member of the Democrat party from 1850 to 1960.

No other group in power did more to protect the institution of slavery, promote segregation, or subjugate and impoverish black Americans in those 110 years.

Come to think of it their policies today continue to maintain the bigotry of low expectations, the  destitution of broken families and to chain blacks to Uncle Sam’s Welfare Plantation.

Help a black person, boycott Democrats.

Jim Crow was a Democrat. So was every Grand Dragon and Imperial Wizard.

For those with short memories and those too young to know.

If you’re under 50 read this and if you’re not, share it with someone who is.

If you’re over 50, you lived through it, so share it with those under 50.

Amazing to me how much I had forgotten! Read it anyway.

When Bill Clinton was president, he allowed Hillary to assume authority over a health care reform.

Even after threats and intimidation, she couldn’t even get a vote in a democratic controlled congress.

This fiasco cost the American taxpayers about $13 million in cost for studies, promotion, and other efforts.

Then President Clinton gave Hillary authority over selecting a female attorney general.

Her first two selections were Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood – both were forced to withdraw their names from consideration.

Next she chose Janet Reno – husband Bill described her selection as “my worst mistake.”

Some may not remember that Reno made the decision to gas David Koresh and the

Branch Davidian religious sect in Waco, Texas resulting in dozens of deaths of women and children.

Husband Bill allowed Hillary to make recommendations for the head of the Civil Rights Commission.

Lani Guanier was her selection.  When a little probing led to the discovery of Ms. Guanier’s radical views, her name had to be withdrawn from consideration.

Apparently a slow learner, husband Bill allowed Hillary to make some more recommendations.

She chose former law partners Web Hubbel for the Justice Department, Vince Foster for the White House staff,and William Kennedy for the Treasury Department.

Her selections went well: Hubbel went to prison, Foster (presumably) committed suicide, and Kennedy was forced to resign.

Many younger votes will have no knowledge of “Travelgate.” Hillary wanted to award unfettered travel contracts to

Clinton friend Harry Thompson – and the White House Travel Office refused to comply. She managed to have them reported to the FBI and fired. This ruined their reputations, cost them their jobs, and caused a thirty-six month  investigation. Only one employee, Billy Dale was charged with a crime, and that of the enormous crime of mixing personal and White House funds. A jury acquitted him of any crime in less than two hours.

Still not convinced of her ineptness, Hillary was allowed to recommend a close Clinton friend, Craig Livingstone, for the position of Director of White House security.  When Livingstone was investigated for the improper access of about 900 FBI files of Clinton enemies (Filegate) and the widespread use of drugs by White House staff, suddenly Hillary and the president denied even knowing Livingstone, and of course,denied knowledge of drug use in the White House.

Following this debacle, the FBI closed its White House Liaison Office after more than thirty years of service to seven presidents.

Next, when women started coming forward with allegations of sexual harassment and rape by Bill Clinton,Hillary was put in charge of the “bimbo eruption” and scandal defense.

Some of her more notable decisions in the debacle were:

She urged her husband not to settle the Paula Jones lawsuit.

After the Starr investigation they settled with Ms. Jones.

She refused to release the Whitewater documents, which led to the appointment of Ken Starr as Special Prosecutor.

After $80 million dollars of taxpayer money was spent, Starr’s investigation led to Monica Lewinsky, which led to Bill lying about and later admitting his affairs.

Hillary’s devious game plan resulted in Bill losing his license to practice law for ‘lying under oath’to a grand jury and then his subsequent impeachment by the House of Representatives.

Hillary avoided indictment for perjury and obstruction of justice during the Starr investigation by repeating, “I do not recall,” “I have no recollection,” and “I don’t know” a total of 56 times while under oath.

After leaving the White House, Hillary was forced to return an estimated $200,000 in White House furniture, china, and artwork that she had stolen.

What a swell party – ready for another four or eight years of this type of low-life mess?

Now we are exposed to the destruction of possibly incriminating emails while

Hillary was Secretary of State and the “pay to play” schemes of the Clinton Foundation –

we have no idea what shoe will fall next.

But to her loyal fans – “what difference does it make?”

Electing Hillary Clinton president would be like granting Satan absolution and giving him the keys to heaven!

Please pass this on. Our way of life may depend on it

ENJOY YOUR FREEDOM TODAY BECAUSE YOU MIGHT NOT HAVE IT TOMORROW

Today is Yom HaShoah,  the annual commemoration of the six million Jews murdered by the Nazis.

The fact that it happened over seventy years ago makes it no less relevant.

The fact that the Nazi’s allies, enablers and successors are not so silently  waiting in the wings to repeat the crime makes it more relevant.

Observe a moment of silence in their memory.

Do it publicly and if questioned, explain.

If challenged by deniers shame them.

Obama, Hitler, And Exploding The Biggest Lie In History
Bill Flax | Forbes

“The line between fascism and Fabian socialism is very thin. Fabian socialism is the dream. Fascism is Fabian socialism plus the inevitable dictator.” John T. Flynn

Numerous commentators have raised alarming comparisons between America’s recent economic foibles and Argentina’s fall “from breadbasket to basket case.” The U.S. pursues a similar path with her economy increasingly ensnared under the growing nexus of government control. Resources are redistributed for vote-buying welfare schemes, patronage style earmarks, and graft by unelected bureaucrats, quid pro quo with unions, issue groups and legions of lobbyists.

In Argentina, everyone acknowledges that fascism, state capitalism, corporatism – whatever – reflects very leftwing ideology. Eva Peron remains a liberal icon. President Obama’s Fabian policies (Keynesian economics) promise similar ends. His proposed infrastructure bank is just the latest gyration of corporatism. Why then are fascists consistently portrayed as conservatives? (more…)
