Statue of Reconciliation at Arlington to Be Destroyed

Anyone who has involved themselves in university level history studies knows almost all empires, monarchies, republics and democracies all experienced uprisings or civil wars of some kind. Their histories are taught not to disparage the losers, but as a lesson, who-where-why and the results. Taught as understandings.

But the American Civil war, a bloody turning point that helped set her on course to a world power, is now taught through a radical lens as a disgrace, a dead horse to be beat at every opportunity to advance agendas. 

Excerpts from the Washington Times:
After the Civil War, Presidents Abraham Lincoln and  Ulysses S. Grant worked hard to reconcile the North and the South. Lincoln pardoned and restored property to all who engaged in the war, with the exception of the highest Confederate officials and military leaders. Grant supported pardons for former Confederate leaders — seeking to maintain peace and economic growth — while also protecting the civil rights of freed slaves. 
In 1898, President William McKinley held a “Peace Jubilee,” where he stated: “In the spirit of fraternity, we should share with you in the care of the graves of the Confederate soldiers. … Sectional feelings no longer holds back the love we feel for each other. The old flag waves over us in peace with new glories.” 
In 1900, Congress allowed Confederate remains to be buried at Arlington National Cemetery, designating Special Section 16 to them — and that’s where the monument stands. 
Three years later, in 1903, the first Confederate Memorial Day ceremonies were held in Section 16. President Theodore Roosevelt sent a floral arrangement to commemorate it, a tradition that almost every U.S. president has repeated — even Barack Obama. (Mr. Obama modified the tradition by sending a wreath to Section 16 and another one to D.C.’s African American Civil War Memorial.) 
Now, the radicals in our society are going to tear down the creation designed by Moses Jacob Ezekiel, a Confederate veteran and the first Jewish graduate of the Virginia Military Institute, who is buried beneath the statue. Its empty base and foundation will remain as to avoid disturbing the surrounding graves. 
With the monument’s destruction, the reconciliation message that Lincoln, Grant, McKinley, Taft and Roosevelt advocated will be lost. 
The statue’s demise will not unite but only further divide.
As Biden's affirmative action secretary of defense Loyd something has explained, Arlington National Cemetery can inspire all those who call them home, fully reflect the history and the values of the United States.

In today’s race-based hysteria, it is a wonder that Section 16 has survived at all.

America Just Had It's Political Temperature Taken


After nine months of political life in "The Era of High Prices and No Mean Tweets", apparently the dem's anti-Trump rhetoric can't paper over so many bare store shelves and spiking prices or education officials bold face lying to parent's faces, not to mention the insult of being called terrorists. 

Democrats attempted to nationalize the gubernatorial campaigns belies a lack of confidence in the state administrations and a mental removal from political reality as Joe Biden was doing the Democrats a major solid by napping in Scotland as opposed to incoherently rambling at rallies in Richmond or Ocean County.  

In the case of Virginia, Terry McAuliffe and the Lincoln Project deviants have proven to be the duel MVPs of the Republican's hopes of winning back the governorship after two disappointing and completely avoidable losses. In a declaration that conveys the Democrat Party’s complete fealty to the concept of supreme statist and unaccountable leftist teachers’ unions, McAuliffe amazingly admitted he doesn’t “think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.” The issue over parental influence in schools centered around the promotion of divisive leftwing ideology that centers all of American history around systemic racism, seeking to obliterate the existing order of society and replace it with their heroes and values, calling into question the legitimacy of America’s founding. The media democrat water carriers can continue to say it's not CRT.  But that is their Big Lie. 

And despite what the bloated landwhale Whoopie Goldberg and her bigot toady Joy Behar will tell their reality challenged viewers Wednesday, last night was not a 'White-lash' but a Righteous Push-back.

The Democratic defeat in Virginia, a state where DJT got trounced by ten points in 2020 and a Republican hasn’t carried in a presidential race since 2004, marks a major reversal of fortunes for Republicans in Virginia.

This, in addition to many other unexpected down ballot Republican wins across the country, could send the democrats into a nightmare sweat and compromise their leftist agenda as skittish democrats in Congress develop second thoughts about casting their political fortunes and future with San Fran Nan and her flying monkeys.
