The mainstream media coverage of the Charlottesville, Virginia incident magnified the race issue we have in the United States. And while condemning President Trump for his missing denouncement of white supremacist and neo-nazis, in an all too familiar, 24/7 back-to-back coverage cable news, the overreaction of what he said, has not investigated on what really happened that tumultuous day.
Liberals now are calling for Confederate statues to be taken down. Streets signs that bear Confederate names might be changed. Flags are being burned.
Some say it is splitting us further and further apart because they are reminders of oppression during the civil war era. Others say the Confederacy war to maintain slavery and white supremacy in the United States is something the country should not honor or commemorate in any way.
As the debate with the left and ANTIFA gets complicated and insane, it is important to clear up that toppling down a monument or a statue is illegal in most states. But even if you go through that arduous process of asking permission to take a monument down. Is it really worth all the money and people’s taxes to bring down those monuments that some people see as a depiction of racism?
The truth is that the progressives are trying to mold history to fit their agenda, to the point of ignoring or erasing history. Calling everybody nazis, fascist and racist when they don’t agree with their unreal views. Add this to the mainstream media’s crafting that Trump is a racist because of his remarks about Charlottesville.
Racism is a now a word the mainstream media and the progressive left has overused that it now means nothing but more hatred and brutality. Their inept usage of the word has made it become trite and banal.
A washed out former Senator recently said that if you vote Republican in 2018, then you’re a racist.
I’m voting Republican.
I’d rather be a racist than insane!
