With all the hub bub over Confederate monuments, graves etc. it is hard to disagree with the fact that ‘For the ordinary soldiers who fought and died, devotion to the Confederate army did not arise primarily from a devotion to the institution of slavery (just as most Union soldiers were not fighting primarily to end slavery) but from a devotion to their home states and a sense of honor and duty to defend them from what they considered to be an invading army.’ http://thefederalist.com/2017/08/18/in-defense-of-the-monuments/
If these present day thugs are allowed to continue pushing their agenda all true knowledge of past US history will be totally obliterated and only what the pc leftists deem to be ‘history’ will be allowed. Wake up America!
I am writing this from my home in Australia so I do not know if the Occupier has been sworn into office yet or not. However, I have read that the Occupier’s hero supposedly is Abe Lincoln. Now personally I am not a big fan nor am I an enemy of Abe Lincoln but this Occupier can never match the stature of Lincoln. For one thing it has been written that Lincoln was a humble man whereas the Occupier is anything but! Secondly Lincoln could speak without a teleprompter! Thirdly Lincoln knew how many states there were in the USA during his time BUT the Occupier didn’t in his first campaign. Fourthly, Lincoln may not have been a professing Christian but he definitely had Christian sentiments. The Occupier has shown his sentiments are with Islamists!!!! Lincoln knew his Bible and quoted the Bible often. The Occupier doesn’t know the Bible except for those passages that fit his purpose (kind of like Rick Warren).
Now IF Lincoln is the Occupier’s hero it is only because Abe Lincoln was a federalist. The Civil war was not really over slavery but it was truly over states rights. However, as a federalist Lincoln did not see it that way. The Occupier too sees the Federal Government as the One with the rights. The present gun issue is a modern day example. It will be interesting to see just how far the Occupier gets with this issue! May this issue be settled in the individual states by the people of those states!
