Subversive, anti-American politicians have been trampling all over your First Amendment right to freedom of speech since June 22, 2015.  And if you do not stop these subversive, anti-American politicians now, you will lose your First Amendment right to freedom of speech—then all of your other constitutional rights.

Get your heads out of your apps, and stop these bastards—before it is too late.

THE TRUTH ABOUT CONFEDERATE MEMORIAL MONUMENTS, FROM SOMEONE WHO IS NOT A POLITICIAN

Mitch Landrieu is nothing but a pandering, self-serving, sociopathic liar.

Here is the truth about Confederate memorial monuments, from someone who is not a politician:

The Reconstruction was nothing of the sort.  It was a brutal occupation of the vanquished Confederate States of America, in which all citizens of the vanquished Confederate States of America—of all races and ethnicities—were denied their constitutional rights for twelve years.

From 1865 to 1877, Southern women were raped, Southern men were murdered, and Southern families were displaced—on a constant basis—by Union troops and Union League terrorists.

Over 50,000 Southern civilians, of all races and ethnicities, died of exposure and starvation during the Civil War, and the Reconstruction—the Union occupation which followed the Civil War.

Needless to say, one of the constitutional rights which the Southern American people were denied during the Reconstruction was their First-Amendment right to freedom of speech. 

Because the United States won the war, Union citizens were immediately able to build memorial monuments to their war dead—and had enough money to do so.

But the citizens of the vanquished Confederate States of America were prohibited from building memorial monuments to their war dead, for twelve years, because they were denied their First-Amendment right to freedom of speech for twelve years.

Citizens of the vanquished Confederate States of America were only able to build monuments to their war dead after the Reconstruction ended in 1877.

Yet even then, they had to raise the money to build them—and this took decades.

This is why the overwhelming majority of Confederate memorial monuments were built in the late Nineteenth century and early Twentieth century.

And they were not built to pretend that the South had actually won the war, or to intimidate Black Southerners—many Black Southerners attended the ceremonies at which these memorial monuments to the Confederate war dead were presented.  Because the Confederate war dead included many Black Confederate soldiers and sailors who had proudly served the Confederate States of America, of their own free will.

The monuments were not Confederate-era monuments—because they were built after the United States of America defeated the Confederate States of America, and after the brutal Union occupation of the vanquished Confederate States of America finally ended.

When Mitch Landrieu said he would replace the statue of Confederate President Jefferson Davis with an American flag—he knew very well that a flag of the Confederate States of America was just as much an American flag as a flag of the United States of America.

The posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America is destructive to the United States of America—and Mitch Landrieu knows this.

New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu did not call for the removal of four Confederate memorial monuments until June 24, 2015—the same day that Alabama Governor Robert Bentley censored all Confederate flags from Confederate memorial monuments on the grounds of the Alabama State Capitol, and the same day that Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward censored the First Confederate Flag from Pensacola’s historical flags displays.

And on June 22, 2015, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley called for the censorship of a Confederate battle flag from a Confederate memorial monument on the grounds of the South Carolina State Capitol—in a speech in which she blamed a mass murder committed in Charleston, South Carolina, on a historical American flag in Columbia, South Carolina.

The overwhelming majority of the state and local politicians who are censoring their constituents’ historical flags and monuments, without their constituents’ consent, are actually Republicans—following the lead of Republican Nikki Haley.

And Democrats like Mitch Landrieu are simply riding this Republican bandwagon for the same reason Republican Nikki Haley got the bandwagon rolling, in the first place—it gives them a shot at the House of Representatives, the Senate, and even the Presidency.

The dismantled Confederate memorial monuments in New Orleans must be restored, if possible.  And if this is not possible, they must be left in exactly the same state that Mitch Landrieu has left them, as a warning—to all people—of the politicians and their lies.

VIEWER FEEDBACK

Ms. Robin,

The Confederate memorial monuments that the Dishonorable Mitch Landrieu brutally censored—without the consent of the people of New Orleans, to whom those monuments belonged—were not Confederate-era monuments.

Mitch Landrieu is nothing but a pandering, self-serving, sociopathic liar.

Here’s the truth about those monuments:

The Reconstruction was nothing of the sort.  It was a brutal occupation of the vanquished Confederate States of America, in which all citizens of the vanquished Confederate States of America—of all races and ethnicities—were denied their constitutional rights for twelve years.

From 1865 to 1877, Southern women were raped, Southern men were murdered, and Southern families were displaced—on a constant basis—by Union troops and Union League terrorists.

Over 50,000 Southern civilians, of all races and ethnicities, died of exposure and starvation during the Civil War, and the Reconstruction—the Union occupation which followed the Civil War.

Needless to say, one of the constitutional rights which the Southern American people were denied during the Reconstruction was their First-Amendment right to freedom of speech.

Because the United States won the war, Union citizens were immediately able to build memorial monuments to their war dead—and had enough money to do so.

But the citizens of the vanquished Confederate States of America were prohibited from building memorial monuments to their war dead, for twelve years, because they were denied their First-Amendment right to freedom of speech for twelve years.

Citizens of the vanquished Confederate States of America were only able to build monuments to their war dead after the Reconstruction ended in 1877.

Ms. Robin, this is why the overwhelming majority of Confederate memorial monuments were built in the late Nineteenth century and early Twentieth century.

They were not built to intimidate Black Southerners, or to claim that the South had actually won the war—many Black Southerners attended the ceremonies at which these memorial monuments to the Confederate war dead were presented.  Because, as you probably know, the Confederate war dead included many Black Confederate soldiers and sailors who had proudly served the Confederate States of America, of their own free will.

So the monuments were not Confederate-era monuments—because they were built after the United States of America defeated the Confederate States of America, and after the brutal Union occupation of the vanquished Confederate States of America finally ended.

And when the Dishonorable Mitch Landrieu says he will replace the statue of President Jefferson Davis with an American flag—he knows very well that a flag of the Confederate States of America is just as much an American flag as a flag of the United States of America.

And Democrats like Mitch Landrieu are simply jumping on this Republican bandwagon for the same reason Republican Nikki Haley got the bandwagon rolling, in the first place—it gives them a shot at the House of Representatives, the Senate, and even the Presidency.

Ms. Robin, I agree with Save Our Circle—those monuments must be restored, if possible.  And if that is not possible, they must be left in exactly the same state that Landrieu has left them, as a warning—to all people—of the politicians and their lies.
