“Senate Democrats aren’t ready to let go of Donald Trump’s pick of Steve Bannon as his top White House advisor, blasting Bannon as a racist demagogue and demanding the president-elect change his mind.
“Millions of Americans see a president-elect who has chosen to knock them down rather than lift them up,” Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) said during a press conference, calling for the “immediately firing Steve Bannon.”
“Donald Trump’s appointment of Steve Bannon is the absolute wrong message to send to Americans today. This is a person who has expressed racist, sexist, anti-Semitic, anti-Latino sentiments,” said Sen. Debbie Stabenow. “This is a person whose views do not belong in the White House.”
If you concentrate on this one sentence, you get the Trump campaign in a nutshell.
“Now, they feel, is the time to airbrush out of history every tradition that is an obstacle to their new, rootless, alien society based on intolerant political correctness.”
He who accues, excuses. The neo-Confederates are masters of the Historic Aribrush, and have gone INSANE trying to turn the tables, where they are THE VICTIMS and THE WINNERS – and never THE LOSERS!
Trump’s motto ‘Let’s make America great again’ is what any neo-Confederate would let out a cheer for, and they did. I now ask who Gerald Warner is, and if any Trump children have been engrossed in Breitbart, they bringing this racist material to their father – and reading him racist fairy-tales. Consider the hit series ‘Roots’. Can the Trump children relate? The Confederate Traitors called upon foreign rulers to come help them fight for STATE RIGHTS!!!!!
rootless, alien society
“The Civil War was not fought over slavery, but in defence of states’ rights. As for secession, the very existence of the United States derived from its secession from the British Crown. Why did the South, then, not have the right to secede in turn from a Union grown intolerable to it, with Abraham Lincoln assuming the role of George III?
If Jefferson Davis’s statue is “divisive”, will they also demolish the Lincoln Memorial celebrating his opponent?
This is CRAZY TALK! The Armed Traitors fired on Fort Sumter, and the Civil War was underway. These Traitors murdered unarmed men and boys in Lawrence Kansas. Why didn’t they murder the wives and sisters? Women could not vote – nor slaves! The fight for the votes of women and freed slaves in our elections, and the post-election discussion on these NEW VOTERS who were once treated like rootless aliens, is at the very core of the Cultural Warfare, Stephen Bannon and Breitbart declared. And, it was a SILENT DECLARATION, unless the North come down there and whip their ass again, with the help of the German Fort-Eighters, those rootless aliens who lost to the Habsburg Royal Army, blessed by the Pope.
White men want to strut about America with their women and slaves following behind them. Look, is that Trump and his children on the veranda drinking mint julep, they looking fine in their white linen – and bullwhip! Uh-oh! I think I see Sarah Palin, who may get a cabinet post. She too loves the Confederate flag.
“Hey you godless, unworthy aliens and fetus killers. Come shop at our new mall!”
JUST SAY NO! They are carrying clubs, and are itching to knock you down when you enter THE OLD HORROR STORE!
Palin also mentioned part of her hopes for the upcoming 2016 presidential election: “And you know something else? I was born in Idaho, so I’m not a Southern girl by birth, but I support and believe in traditional southern values with all of my heart. In fact, I hope we finally get to put the Confederate flag on the White House next year. Not only would that be a radical and positive turn in American politics, but it would also say “in your face” to those who are looking to make true Americans forget who they are.”
Further afield, Mayor Mitch Landrieu of New Orleans has called for a debate over the future of a statue in the city of Robert E. Lee and the renaming of a roundabout called Lee Circle to “reflect who we are as a people”.
“Everything that America deplores in Washington today is what the Confederacy fought against.”
“The liberals feel they are on a roll, having trashed states’ rights by railroading compulsory acceptance of homosexual marriage through the Supreme Court. Now, they feel, is the time to airbrush out of history every tradition that is an obstacle to their new, rootless, alien society based on intolerant political correctness. The epitome of everything they detest and fear is the Confederate Flag, so that is now the target of a hate campaign so fanatical and irrational as to seem barely sane.”
A White House spokesman said last week that President Obama has maintained for years that the Confederate flag “should be taken down and placed in a museum where it belongs”. Some members of Congress are also demanding the removal from beneath the Capitol dome of several statues of Confederate leaders, including Jefferson Davis, the president of the Confederacy. The dean of Washington National Cathedral has called for two stained glass windows that depict the Confederate flag to be replaced. If Jefferson Davis’s statue is “divisive”, will they also demolish the Lincoln Memorial celebrating his opponent?
Further afield, Mayor Mitch Landrieu of New Orleans has called for a debate over the future of a statue in the city of Robert E. Lee and the renaming of a roundabout called Lee Circle to “reflect who we are as a people”. National retailers such as Walmart, Amazon, Sears, eBay and Etsy have rushed to remove items featuring the Confederate flag from their websites, though Walmart made a cake decorated with the Isil jihadist flag when a man who had been refused a cake with a Confederate flag requested it.
Flags, statues, church windows, street names, films, novels, even an elementary school in California named after Robert E Lee – all are threatened with being swept into oblivion by a tsunami of destructive liberal triumphalism. The object is to disinherit and eradicate the historical memory and distinctive culture of millions of Americans. It is a second scorched-earth devastation of the South, cultural this time rather than material. This is Obama’s March to the Sea. While your supporters are trashing the monuments and reputations of the forefathers of so many Americans, Barack, you might just want to remind us again which state of the Union, north or south, your ancestors resided in during the traumatic years 1861- 1865? Or did Kenya not have a dog in that fight? The Confederacy was not a callous conspiracy to enforce slavery, but a patriotic and idealistic cause for which 490,000 men were killed, wounded or taken captive. The Civil War was not fought over slavery, but in defence of states’ rights. As for secession, the very existence of the United States derived from its secession from the British Crown. Why did the South, then, not have the right to secede in turn from a Union grown intolerable to it, with Abraham Lincoln assuming the role of George III?
Above all, neo-liberals have shown no regard for cultural priorities. National identity and the broader culture of Christian Europe are to be discarded, true community identity replaced by a rootless individualism whose only enduring relationship is with technology. The family is despised, fiscally oppressed and treated with contempt. Conservatism can no longer cohabit with this nihilist, deracinated force that is already inflicting more damage on Western civilisation than communism ever achieved.
Neo-liberalism is not even true to its own tenets. It has long departed from the principles of Hayek, with his respect for tradition, and degenerated into crony capitalism and complicity with the intruder state. Conservatives urgently need to cut loose. The immediate battleground is the immigration crisis swamping – yes, that is the word, the only one that adequately describes the character of the threat – Europe and Britain.
There are now 6,000 incomers per day landing in Europe and the rate is accelerating. Neo-liberals gaze approvingly on this influx, seeing only a cheap labour source, disregarding the fact that the overwhelming majority is unskilled, unfit or unwilling to work. Not a problem: the welfare state (i.e. taxpayers) will take care of them while business cherry-picks a labour force from their ranks. Quarterly results will improve and shareholders’ dividends increase.
We are going to have to guard against a rise in a crude sort of nationalism or ethnic identity or tribalism that is built around an us and a them,” he said. “And I will never apologize for saying that the future of humanity and the future of the world is going to be defined by what we have in common as opposed to those things that separate us and ultimately lead us into conflict.”
Republican Sen. John McCain on Tuesday warned against any attempt to reboot U.S.-Russia relations under Donald Trump’s presidency.
“With the U.S. presidential transition underway, Vladimir Putin has said in recent days that he wants to improve relations with the United States. We should place as much faith in such statements as any other made by a former KGB agent who has plunged his country into tyranny, murdered his political opponents, invaded his neighbors, threatened America’s allies, and attempted to undermine America’s elections,” the Arizona senator said in a statement.
Visitors to the Sons of Confederate Veterans website are confronted by a video of a man in a grayuniform who proclaims, “One hundred and fifty years ago the men of the South left our homes and families to protect them from an illegal invasion and to fight for the rights our states held under the Constitution.” He continues: “Too many in your time want to tell lies about us and the reasons we went to war. We fought for you. It is now your turn to stand up to the South.”
