Filed under the heading "Just what the hell is this man thinking"







Ok, so now statuary mainly erected to glorify Jim Crow laws and remind African Americans of their place under said laws and now "beautiful" and "will be greatly missed and never be able to be comparably replaced"

So if you voted for/supported Trump in the election the argument can be made that you were doing so our of economic concerns and a feeling that no one cared about you. That excuse just went bye-bye. People who support him after this either are bigots, or just do not care about the rights of fellow citizens who are not of the "correct" race, religion, sexual orientation/identity, which makes you equally bad.

And the GOP has to end their Faustian bargain that they are willing to trade their souls for a chance at Tax or Healthcare "reform". News flash, aside from the moral bankruptcy of this choice, what makes you think you can't get the same results from President Pence. Unless of course there is something about this message that resonates with them.

Seriously it is time to choose sides. And the shocking part is why it is so hard for some to choose correctly

He's also ranting about the press and Lindsey Graham:

"Publicity seeking Lindsey Graham falsely stated that I said there is moral equivalency between the KKK, neo-Nazis & white supremacists.........and people like Ms. Heyer. Such a disgusting lie. He just can't forget his election trouncing.The people of South Carolina will remember!"

My favorite response to that:

"So let me get this straight: you are using the word disgusting to refer to Lindsay Graham's "lies", not White supremacists."

Chance that Trump ever heard of Longstreet? I say very little.

Kinda sad when the history to learn from was chosen by Lost Cause revisionists.

Also Stonewall Jackson? I like my heroes who don't get killed by friendly fire.

He does get a stopped clock award for 'never be comparably replaced.'

Mind you not how he intended it, but it is technically true.

What election trouncing is he referring to?

In Trump's defense, the man literally knows nothing about any topic other than himself (and even that is near complete delusion). He knows nothing about any aspect of the US government works and the entire history of the United States.

I think to him these are just names he has heard before and so Robert E. Lee effectively has the same standing as Thomas Jefferson. Besides the fact that Steve Bannon told him that Thomas Jefferson held slaves, I assure you, Trump knows nothing else about the man. They're just statues that have some connection to the United States probably and people close to him seem to care about them.

His equivalence of fascists and anti-fascists, also makes some sense. To be able to understand the fundamental moral difference between the two requires empathy of other human beings. If there is one thing Trump clearly lacks is empathy. So it makes sense to him that there is one side of an argument and another side, fair and balanced. The fact that he is deep down a racist motherfucker and narcissist means he sides with the pro-white folk who look like him and importantly, worship him.

So I guess it comes down to the fact that we elected an ignorant man-child narcissitic sociopath and from that point of view, his behavior makes complete sense.

My mantra before he was president was that he literally didn't know how to be presidential or the president.

I'm not going to choose a side that lies. There's no evidence that shows the Charlottesville statue was erected for the reasons you believe.



It was erected in a town decorated in confederate colors, draped with a confederate flag, while several confederate organizations looked on. That's pretty unAmerican.

I don't live in Canada. I live in Oklahoma. Family is from Arkansas. Yeah, they put it up so the niggers would understand that even though they lost the Civil War, whitey still runs things and you best stay in your place. Yep, exactly that.

I thought I was well-versed on Civil War history until I read that sentence. Was there some dark secret attached to Lee's Old Warhorse? From what I remember, Longstreet was one of few Confederate officers, probably the only general, who joined the Republican Party after the war. He had been friends with Grant, and from what I understand, was a fairly good guy, unlike Nathan Bedford Forrest, the originator of the Ku Klux Klan.

There may not be proof, but there is evidence.
