OK, Now What About Those Confederate Statues?

Despite the fact that the majority of citizens in our country want the derangement of those who wish to erase our history of the Civil War from public places to stop, those Confederate statues and other forms of honoring our past are being removed from our eyesight. Yes, “They’re everywhere! They’re everywhere!

The movement has emboldened social justice warriors across the country. Hell, even Congress got involved as Democrats want ten statues of Civil War “villains” removed from the U.S. Capitol.

Recently, Christopher Carbone identified the Confederate statues already taken down in 23 cities from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C.

Actions here in Austin, Texas are examples of madness happening across the country.

University of Texas President Gregory L. Fenves made the decision to take down four Confederate statues in the middle of the night. They have since been relocated to more “safe spaces” elsewhere in the city.

On August 18, 2017, the Austin Chronicle, “an alternative weekly tabloid-style newspaper”, printed an article identifying the location of all Confederate “symbols” in the city outside the UT campus and the capitol grounds: two historical markers, one building, two streets, and, yes, three high schools. No changes in these Civil War detriments to our society have yet happened. But with Austin being the most liberal city in Texas, as always “Things, they are a changing”.

Fortunately, none of the Confederate statues located on the Texas state capitol grounds have been removed – yet. However, there is a move to eliminate Confederate Heroes Day.

So stay tuned, the inevitable may yet occur.

In a recent, uh, conversation, on Fox News between Tucker Carlson and “social justice warrior Reverend Jacques Degraff, Tucker asked some obvious questions. Degraff’s position was that Civil War figures should not be celebrated. Since George Washington was a slaveholder, Tucker asked Degraff should we change the name of the capital of our country, Washington, D.C. He responded he was a great man “but we need to take care of these Confederate statues.” It seemed that Degraff was not a true advocate to his beliefs.

Now that brings to mind one last question: Where were all of these social justice warriors, leftist politicians, and Antifa terrorists over the last eight years of President Obama’s regime?

Oh, gee, I forgot: Donald J. Trump was elected president! That means the “madness” actually has a medical definition: “Trump Derangement Syndrome”.

I don’t think there is a cure for this disease.
