Again, we agree with that silent majority that doesn’t want to see our history erased, or our cops “defunded.” Now, more than ever, we need to support those great men and women in law enforcement who do an increasingly thankless, yet critical, job…and are getting it from all sides.
As for the Confederate statues, monuments, and flags.. History is what happened; not what we wish had happened. If we don’t study, or have reminders of what happened, then history has a way of repeating itself. So, we say.. Keep the statues and monuments. If you don’t like them, then don’t look at ’em.
Agreed.. Thanks to the editorial staff at The Washington Times for the timely piece. This whole purging of our history is very very dangerous. Its what the Germans and Japanese have done with respect to their involvement in WWII. History is what happened; NOT what we wished had happened, don’t want to talk about because it hurts our precious tender feelings. The Civil War happened. To those who have a problem with that fact, get the hell over it! We need to fight to ensure these statues of Christopher Columbus, Confederate generals and so on stay standing. They are reminders of what happened and where we came from…and in many respects, how far we’ve come. And, we need to revisit American civics in school. If you have kids, a MUST read is “The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History” by Thomas Woods. Its all the stuff you weren’t taught in junior high, and high school from our country’s founding through about the Bill Clinton presidency. You can get it at Amazon for under $20 new…and it’s worth it.
HAHAHAHA!!! Doh!! Hey Nancy! How ’bout them apples?? That lying, hypocritical windbag just got BUSTED! Some enterprising reporter needs to ask her these questions on camera, and see how she tries to dance around it. Of course that won’t happen, because she’s a Democrat. They’ll just look the other way, and let her get away with that. Typical.. Of course her at The Daily Buzz, we are right there with the majority of those registered voters and don’t believe we should be tearing down statues or monuments to any historical figures on either side. Those that want one of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (“MLK”) should have those statues. And, those descendants of Confederate Generals and other figures from that timeframe (especially in southern states that were part of the Confederacy during that time of our history), should have every right to protect and keep those statues and monuments. History is what happened; NOT what we wished had happened, or that hurt our tender feelings. People who have a problem with the facts of our history really need to get over it and move on. Same is true for the renaming of Army posts in our southern states. That is beyond ridiculous, and we support President Trump’s position NOT to do that. Shame on our legislators of BOTH parties who are caving to pc police and are trying to rename those historical posts.
Point taken.. BUT.. The reporter should have pressed a little harder and asked why there were 10 figures in Statuary Hall…and not only was she speaker of the House. But, she and her party controlled BOTH chambers of Congress AND Obama was in the White House. Obama and his agenda were unopposed his first two years in office as President. So, they could EASILY have taken care of all of that then…but they didn’t. So, her current self-righteous, self-serving, and current political opportunistic push to do so now is entirely hypocritical and political pandering at it’s worst. But, that’s typical for ol’ Nancy. And, one thing we love to do here at The Daily Buzz is expose the brazen hypocrisy of politicians like Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and the liberal agenda of what we call the dominantly liberal mainstream media (i.e. ABC, CBS, NBC, NPR/PBS, CNN, the Washington Post, the NY Times, etc…and of course the absolute worst…MSNBC). Let’s see if some enterprising reporter is able to confront that old windbag on camera with that line of questioning and THEN ask her about her father’s role mentioned in the article above. That would be some fun tv worth watching!
Democrat politicians and the dominantly liberal mainstream media have a short memory…a VERY short memory. After all, the late Sen. Robert Byrd (D-WV) was the Sen. Majority Leader (for crying out loud), and was in the Senate up til 2010; only 7 years ago. Keep in mind that Sen. Byrd was an “exalted cyclops” of the Ku Klux Klan!! And yet NOBODY in the Democratic party OR in the liberal media said ANYTHING about that. Where was Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Chuck Schumer, the NAACP, PBS/NPR, CNN, and of course, MSNBC?!? Their silence for decades has been deafening. Talk about brazen hypocrisy!! And, that’s just for starters.. The liberal media and Democrats like to bring up the KKK, and throw out the name “David Duke” (a former Louisiana state legislator and former leader of one of the many Klan organizations in the U.S.) as some sort of talking point. It’s totally scripted, and phony. For those who may not know.. Started in 1865 after the Civil War, the membership of the KKK was almost exclusively Democrats for the first ONE HUNDRED YEARS of it’s existence! That’s a very inconvenient FACT that the left doesn’t want you to know. Anyway, to read the rest of this outstanding op/ed by AWR Hawkins, click on the text above.
