Yale University is removing John C. Calhoun from it's list of distinguished associates. In Virginia, they are pulling down statues of Robert E. Lee. Out in Texas, some of the big cities are changing the names of streets named after Confederate soldiers, and schools named after Confederate officers are being renamed to be more "ethnically appropriate."
These things are infuriating, but they won't effect the rural South. Family heritage is still passed down from generation to generation. As much as the left may want to rewrite history, they won't succeed. National Geographic just put out a special edition on Nat Turner. There's a movie about Nat Turner on pay per view, and he has his own special niche in the new Washington black history museum or whatever they are calling it.
Nat Turner is cast as a "freedom fighter", in the mold of Che Guerverra. In reality he was a psychopathic murderer. His victims were primarily women, children and elderly people. He wasn't much on fighting his war of liberation against men and when he finally had to, it was over. But that's not what is being pimped as "history."
Turner and his group killed about sixty people. They killed every man, woman and child they came across. They used hatchets, axes and butcher knives to do it. When the rebellion collapsed, Turner ran off and hid, was finally captured hiding in a hole in the ground on a farm. If people want to make a hero out of him, it says a lot about their mentality.
I suppose I should be used to it by now. But the more of this that happens, the madder I get about it.
Rather than just do a post about something that irks me no end, how about some light humor.
You've heard of flying squirrels. Bet you haven't seen one like this before.
These two Louis Wain drawings are a pretty good representation of what my house looks like sometimes. My wife likes cats. I do too, especially outdoor cats.
