Trump doesn't give an inch

I left the following comment yesterday in this post at Infidel Bloggers Alliance:
It would be a mistake for Southerners to give in and allow the removal of such statues and monuments.

The issue isn't slavery. The issue is power and control.

If these symbols are torn down, then we'll quickly see the following "debate":

[[
George Washington, the first US president, was a slave owner. It's deeply "problematic" that supposedly enlightened Americans today use currency which depicts the despicable face of that monster. Every time a Black person uses a quarter or a one dollar bill, he's reminded of the terrible oppression of his people. This is NOT OK!

Therefore, we NEED to melt and burn all the tyrannical currency which has Washington's diabolical face. Who gets to replace him? Why, Obama, of course!

Wait, you oppose that? Well, you must be a racist, slavery-loving, KKK member!
]]

Do not give an inch to these people. Their ilk at the University of London want Plato, Descartes etc. removed from the syllabus because those historical figures were white!

Just because someone from the past did something bad, doesn't mean that we have to delete them or their symbols from history. By that logic, Islam and Muhammad should get a serious ban hammering.
Today, the God Emperor stated:
“George Washington was a slave owner. Was George Washington a slave owner? So will George Washington now lose his status? Are we gonna take down–are we gonna take down our statues of George Washington,” Trump asked a reporter.
“How about Thomas Jefferson? What do you think of Thomas Jefferson? You like him? Ok good. Are we gonna take down his statue because he was a major slave owner. Now, are we gonna take down his statue?”
Wow! Trump comprehends the dangers of appeasing this lunacy.

Agree with the man who owns a cat in a box.... or is that cat in the box? smile

It is a fact that George Washington was a slave owner. This is history. It is also a fact that it has been much greater than a century now since Americans have owned slaves. This is also part of our history.

It is a fact that we have statues from the Civil War that remind us of the high cost of conflict, and the sacrifices made.

The narratives being put forth by the "Progressives" are actually tribal, retrograde in nature, and yes, about controlling the script of what it means to be an American.

We are not as divided as they present, and as a fact, I am a minority in my place of employment and there is harmony in my workplace. Equality is the standard. Charlottesville is bad political theater, and not much else.

Four statues came down in the night last night in Maryland -- all removals approved by the state or local government.
