As someone so accurately stated, the United States is probably the only country in the world who would start a civil war over a previous civil war. As long as liberal exist, there will never be peace or tranquility in the once great country. Their objectives have not changed since 1860, the destruction of the government of the United States. Proof: Even one of our SCOTUS’ Justices proclaimed that another country could do far better than adopting our Constitution. Besides wondering how such an antagonist liberal could receive such as appointment, we wonder in the wisdom of allowing her to remain there until her death, because it is obvious she will never resign.
When we allow vandalism while the police are ordered by their superiors to stand down with the justification that statues can be replaced but people might get hurt. What a sorry excuse for a police chief even though he does work for t democrat mayor. The media always describes the rioters as right-wing racists, nazis, white supremacists not mentioning that they had a legal permit to march while the true #alt-left rioters who attacked had no legal right to be there. When will biased politicians quit authorizing legal vandalism by tearing down the nation’s history symbolized in ancient statues? Perhaps when statues of northern generals are torn down? We are on the cusp of civil war and the alt-left loves the idea.

Monument madness a leftist cover to crumble America from within
Don’t for one minute think this past week of Charlottesville-tied mayhem has been over a statue of Robert E. Lee.
It’s not. It’s about power, control and the political course our nation will take as we head into the future.
Don’t see the connection? Walk with me.
The clashes in Charlottesville, disgusting as they were — fatal as they proved — were quickly seized upon by a committed far-left that wants nothing more than to A) remove this president from office and B) change the constitutional nature of America’s society for one that’s ruled by whim and mob voice, rather than law and order.
Charlottesville was the perfect confluence of hot emotion and irrefutable evil. The neo-Nazi mindset is ugly and white supremacist beliefs, wicked. The torch-bearing protesters angry at the idea of the whitewashing of history that comes with the removal of the Confederate statue didn’t help their cause by — well, bearing torches.
The Antifa fascists, Black Lives Matter types and communist-socialist-anarchist thugs who came to Charlottesville weren’t exactly innocent players in the clashes that followed; they came to the community with violence on their minds.
But the media message was this: It was white supremacists and neo-Nazis, for goodness sake! And with that, Reason left the room.
Hot Emotion stayed. It became the wedge of the left for what followed. Those who dared suggest the statue should stay for historical reasons became cast as white supremacists themselves. Those who pointed to the First Amendment rights of protesters of all walks, from far left to far right and all points in between, were slammed as neo-Nazi sympathizers.
Nancy Pelosi called for the National Parks Service to yank an already-approved permit for white supremacists to protest at a spot in California. The mayor of Charlottesville, the Democratic activist and anti-President Donald Trumper Michael Signer took to national television to draw a direct line between the White House and the city’s violence, saying most shamefully and unfairly, “Look at the campaign he ran,” while pointing blaming fingers squarely at the president.
The progressive, Asian, black and Hispanic caucuses in Congress penned quick letters to the White House, demanding the immediate removal of aides Steve Bannon, Stephen Miller and Sebastian Gorka because of their so-deemed, yet entirely unsubstantiated, white supremacist views.
Baltimore in the middle of the night removed its Confederate-tied monuments. North Carolina thugs in Durham tore down a Confederate soldier statue and kicked and spat on it. A pastor — a man of Christ — called for the renaming of Washington Park in Chicago, as well as the removal of its George Washington statue and the renaming of Jackson Park. Why? The names conjures images of slavery, he said.
Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan removed the Taney statue from the State House — a step aimed at appeasing those offended by the fact it showed the likeness of the very U.S. Supreme Court justice, Roger B. Taney, who wrote the famous 1857 Dred Scott decision upholding slavery and denying citizenship to blacks.
Democrats in Congress called for an all-out cleansing of Confederate-tied statues, monuments and structures from Statuary Hall, a Capitol Hill fixture and popular tourist draw that contains dozens of contributions from individual states.
“The Capitol is a place for all Americans to come and feel welcomed, encouraged and inspired,” said Sen. Cory Booker, New Jersey Democrat. “Confederate statues do the opposite.”
This, from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi: “The Confederate statues in the halls of Congress have always been reprehensible. If Republicans are serious about rejecting white supremacy, I call upon Speaker [Paul] Ryan to join Democrats to remove the Confederate statues from the Capitol immediately.”
