Well, I know I feel Safer

Great news folks, all of our troubles in America are now over. How do I know? Well The University of Mississippi has now completely banned their marching ban from ever playing the most evil song ever, Dixie, because “diversity”

Athletics Director Ross Bjork said Friday that he asked the university’s marching band, known as the “Pride of the South,” to create a new pregame show that excludes all the variations of Dixie it has traditionally played.

“Because the Pride of the South is such a large part of our overall experience and tradition, the Athletics Department asked them to create a new and modern pregame show that does not include ‘Dixie’ and is more inclusive for all fans,” Bjork said in a statement.

Got that? They must exclude this song to be “inclusive”. There you have, in one small example, the hypocrisy and backasswardsness of the Left. To them, being less diverse, makes us more diverse, and excluding more people, cultures, and heritages makes us more “inclusive”. But what about the name of the Ole Miss band? Pride of the South? Surely that must go too right? And what of this little fact

The nickname “Ole Miss” is a term of affection for the school’s alumni and fans, but “Ole Miss” is also what slaves called a plantation owner’s wife.

Well, THAT is offensive right? So they ought to change that too, I mean the university has been cleansing its culture for two plus decades now

In 1997, then-Chancellor Robert Khayat banned hand-held flagpoles from the stadium, effectively ending the waiving of battle flags. Then in 2003, the university cut ties with Colonel Reb, the grey-whiskered Southern planter, tapping a bear as its on-field mascot instead. In 2009, then-Chancellor Dan Jones told the band to stop playing “From Dixie With Love,” which blended the Confederate anthem with the Union Army’s “Battle Hymn of the Republic.” Some fans were yelling “The South will rise again” during the song. Ole Miss fans had once yelled the same at the end of the original version of Dixie.

Outside the athletic arena, Ole Miss has renamed Confederate Drive, stopped flying the Mississippi state flag because it features the Confederate battle emblem, and is working on a plaque to acknowledge slavery in front of the monument to university students who died fighting for the South during the Civil War.

And I am sure that plaque will demonize those soldiers, and spin history to place all the blame for the War Between the States on slavery, because Cultural Stalinsim must roll on.

Why yes, the Founders, Old Glory, etc are next on the Cultural Stalinist hit list

The Left is easy to see coming, they really are. Just do not underestimate how depraved they are. They wish to erase ALL our history

As I predicted, Confederate symbolism was the low-hanging fruit for the Social Justice Warrior/Moral Reformer historian class. Now that several high-profile Confederate monuments and flags have been successfully sullied and removed (not to mention criminally vandalized), it’s time to move on to the ultimate targets – ALL American symbolism. The attacks on Confederate symbolism were just appetizers to prepare us all for the main course. Here’s the latest development:

The University of Houston’s Gerald Horne believes that collective America does not acknowledge the darkest moments of its history — because we still recite the Pledge of Allegiance and sing the National Anthem.

Yes, many of us have predicted this. I called this twenty some years ago. It is what the Left does, it destroys everything is disapproves of. You cannot appease them, or reason with them. they do not seek compromise, they seek the eradication of American heritage and culture

Cultural Stalinists: History? We don’t need no stinkin’ history!

The Left is evil for many reasons.

The Left supports the butchering of babies in the womb

The Left prefers good people be disarmed, rendering them far more vulnerable to violent criminals

The Left, despite their best rhetoric, do not embrace freedom of speech, religion, or association

The Left supports economic policies that punishes success, hampers small business, and destroys ambition, and competition in the name of “fairness”

The Left loathes Individualism, and instead embraces Collectivism. Left unchecked, Collectivism destroys liberty, human rights and leads to Totalitarian atrocities. If you do not believe me, ask the 100,000,000 plus dead that Marxism/Communism/Maoism/Stalinism/Leninism/Collectivism slaughtered last century.

And the Left, is also evil because it seeks to destroy not only liberty, and self-government, but history as well. Independent Sentinel highlights the march of the Cultural Stalinists

Another piece of Civil War history is about to bite the dust.

Portsmouth, Virginia is looking to remove a memorial to Virginians who served the Confederacy during the Civil War. It is falling victim to political correctness. There is a battle being waged with most wanting it to stay.

The memorial commemorates those soldiers who never returned home, it does not commemorate slavery, and most soldiers who fought overwhelmingly did not own slaves. It was also over 150 years ago.

The city estimates the taxpayers will have to pay about $105,000 to erase the monument and statues.

The courts will rule on the decision.

This is going on throughout the country, particularly in the south.

In South Carolina, where the first shots of the Civil War rang out in 1861, the state legislature voted to end the display of the Confederate flag on the grounds of the state capitol.

Monuments to the Confederacy in New Orleans  have been targeted. The Park and Recreation Board of Birmingham, Alabama, voted last July to remove that city’s Confederate Soldiers & Sailors monument.

This is all part of the Left’s campaign of indoctrination folks. First they demonize, then they destroy, all in the name of “inclusion” and “tolerance” of course. And, yes, yes, they will come for every last vestige of our Founders next. Are prepared to tolerate that too? Are we prepared to have a small minority of agitators dictate whom we memorialize? Remember that to truly destroy a nation, you destroy their heritage, history, and culture first. That is what the Left has been doing for decades now. There can be no question as to their goal here. The only question is will we allow it?

Cultural Marxism, whose heritage is next?

Richard G. Williams Jr. Lays it out

As I observe politicians of low reputation and others attack the memory and legacy of a man like Robert E. Lee, I can’t help but be reminded of a quote by Will Durant:

“To speak ill of others is a dishonest way of praising ourselves.”

I’m also reminded of something I once heard Professor James I. Robertson, Jr. say:

“Robert E. Lee never existed [in the minds of some] because we don’t have a Robert E. Lee today.”
Beyond the destruction of historical memory and heritage for agenda-driven political purposes, much of what we’re currently witnessing also carries, in my opinion, strong elements of virtue signalling and self-aggrandizing. What is so ironic is that in the attempt to elevate themselves, these same men actually reveal themselves for the small men they are. They can’t hold a candle to men like Lee. History will, eventually, judge them accordingly.

Happy Lee-Jackson Day.

It is Confederate Heroes Day here in Texas in honor of the birthdays of Robert E. Lee, and Thomas Johnathan “Stonewall” Jackson This video explains a lot

Then they came for our history

Cultural Stalinism rolls on

Congratulations, liberal Taliban. You have managed to consign a little more of our history and our heritage to the Memory Hole:

A statue of Jefferson Davis has been removed from its place on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin after a failed appeal by a Confederate heritage group.

The statue has been a target of vandalism as well as criticism that it is a symbol of racism and discrimination.

“Racism” and “discrimination” can be defined as “noncompliance with current leftist ideology.” Since no one who lived in the 19th century was compliant with this deranged ideology, sooner or later everyone from that era will have to be erased.

The destruction of a nation is not complete without destroying its history. That is what this is about folks. All you “tolerance” addicts think you are moving us forward by dong this? You are doing the very opposite. What is it they say, those who forget history are doomed to repeat it? What should we say about those who erase history?

Then they came for the hoop skirt

Soon all of history, even reenactments and historical TV shows and movies may have to be scrapped lest someone be offended! Fritz has the story that will make you say Good Freaking Grief!

First a view from the National Review back in March: University of Georgia Greeks Ban Hoop Skirts Because They Look Racist

After a meeting with school administrators on Monday, University of Georgia sororities and fraternities have decided to ban hoop skirts from their events over concerns they might look racist.

Victor Wilson, UGA’s vice president for student affairs, explained that the ban was due to concerns over what kind of “message” the skirt might send, and compared it to a previous ban on Confederate uniforms, according to an article in the Athens Banner-Herald.

In other words: The fact that people wore hoop skirts during the era of slavery in the U.S. makes them symbols of racism.

Of course women of MANY regions, and periods wore such dresses, but facts? Who needs facts, we have super, hyper out of control emotionalism! I mean why would anyone want to LEARN about history when they could be outrageously outraged? Who wants education that enlightens when they can have indoctrination that embitters?

Simply amazing isn’t it? The vast majority of people would find this asinine, and silly to the extreme, yet, people in positions of power continue to cower and fold before these whiny hypersensitive miscreants. Their really are only two proper responses to such ignorant whiners. The first, in response to their incessant, and unwarranted whining that they are offended is “So what?” The second, which should be given if they continue to whine should also consist of two words “Fuck off!”

As an exit question what is next? What Southern thing is next? The accent? Fried chicken, cornbread?
