In June, Pat Buchanan warned in a column on his website that President Trump’s administration “is shot through with disloyalists plotting to bring him down.”
“We are approaching something of a civil war where the capital city seeks the overthrow of the sovereign and its own restoration,” he said, warning of the increasingly violent clashes, straining police forces.
“That the objective of this city is to bring Trump down via a deep state-media coup is no secret. Few deny it,” Mr. Buchanan added.
FBI Director Comey admitted he leaked his conversation with the president to trigger the appointment of a special counsel to target Trump.
All evidence showed Trump was innocent of collusion with Russia but Comey wanted it anyway. His goal was to “enlist the police powers of the state to bring down his president,” according to Buchanan.
It appears to be working.
The article begins by recounting General Lee’s outstanding accomplishments, and, despite his decision to not take arms against his home state of Virginia, his history played well.
History didn’t change. What did?
Two years ago, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe called the giant statues of Lee and “Stonewall” Jackson on Richmond’s Monument Avenue “parts of our heritage.” After Charlottesville, New York-born-and-bred McAuliffe, entertaining higher ambitions, went full scalawag, demanding the statues be pulled down as “flashpoints for hatred, division, and violence.”
Who hates the statues, Terry? Who’s going to cause the violence? Answer: The Democratic left whom Terry must now appease.
In Durham, North Carolina, our Taliban smashed the statue of a Confederate soldier. Near the entrance of Duke University Chapel, a statue of Lee has been defaced, the nose broken off.
Wednesday at dawn, Baltimore carried out a cultural cleansing by taking down statues of Lee and Maryland Chief Justice Roger Taney who wrote the Dred Scott decision and opposed Lincoln’s suspension of the right of habeas corpus.
Like ISIS, which smashed the storied ruins of Palmyra, and the al-Qaida rebels who ravaged the fabled Saharan city of Timbuktu, the new barbarism has come to America. This is going to become a blazing issue, not only between but within the parties.
For there are 10 Confederates in Statuary Hall in the Capitol, among them Lee, Georgia’s Alexander Stephens, vice president to Jefferson Davis, and Davis himself. The Black Caucus wants them gone.
Mount Rushmore-sized carvings of Lee, Jackson and Davis are on Stone Mountain, Georgia. Are they to be blasted off?
There are countless universities, colleges and high schools like Washington & Lee named for Confederate statesmen and soldiers. Across the Potomac from D.C. are Jefferson Davis Highway and Leesburg Pike to Leesburg itself, 25 miles north. Are all highways, streets, towns and counties named for Confederates to be renamed? What about Fort Bragg?
On every Civil War battlefield, there are monuments to the Southern fallen. Gettysburg has hundreds of memorials, statues and markers. But if, as the left insists we accept, the Confederates were traitors trying to tear America apart to preserve an evil system, upon what ground do Democrats stand to resist the radical left’s demands?
What do we do with those battlefields where Confederates were victorious: Bull Run, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville?
“Where does this all end?” President Trump asked.
It doesn’t is Mr. Buchanan’s response and it’s the obvious answer because the hard left will never be satiated. There will be the book burnings and the eradication of all history of our Founding. This movement is about destroying all of the south’s culture but it won’t stop with the south. It’s also about destroying U.S. history and culture to replace it with something far more dark and oppressive.
Most of the great southern senators were segregationists and both revered Democrat Presidents, Woodrow Wilson, a bigot, and FDR, said to be anti-Jewish, carried the south. FDR rewarded Dixie by putting a Klansman on the Supreme Court.
While easy for Republicans to wash their hands of such odious elements as Nazis in Charlottesville, will they take up the defense of the monuments and statues that have defined our history, or capitulate to the icon-smashers?
In this Second American Civil War, whose side are you on?
They have already answered. They stay silent.
