Lexington Kentucky Jumps on the Bandwagon to Destroy History in the Wake of Charlottesville

Sassy Liberty AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS – 

In the wake of the violence in Charlottesville, there has been fallout throughout the nation.  The rally in Charlottesville was initially to protest the removal of a monument to General Robert E. Lee calling it an ode to white supremacy.

Yet Gen Lee was not a slave owner.

Those he inherited from his wife, he set free. He also worked to establish literacy programs in Virginia for people of color in a time when simply teaching them to read was illegal.

Men of color fought by his side for the South because they thought so much of him. His war tactics are still taught at West Point. He was a good man, a brilliant man, and he was about as far from a white supremacist as one can get. A far better man than Lincoln in that regard.

Yet the events in Charlottesville are being used across the nation as the impetus to remove even more Confederate history. The mayor of Lexington, Kentucky announced via his Facebook page today that he would be taking action to remove Confederate statues from Fayette County Courthouse.

The Confederate monuments in question are those of John C. Breckinridge and John Hunt Morgan.  The Urban County Arts Review Board voted in November 2015 to have them removed.  The debate has gone on for more than 18 months as local citizens fought to prevent their history from being torn down and removed from sight.

George Orwell said –

“The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.”

Yet, Gray would deny that notion.  Stating instead that he is “determined to find a solution that accurately reflects history  and equally determined to find a plan that makes our Courthouse a place that welcomes and represents all citizens.”

 

Many citizens see that monuments of the Confederacy is representative of history so we as Americans can remember where and what we have come from.  History is not always pretty, in fact some of it is down right atrocious.  However, we as a people should be willing to learn it, to learn it ALL, even the ugly parts.  We should learn it so well that we never, EVER repeat the ugliness again.

 

I myself felt the need to respond to Mayor Grey regarding his removal of history —

Sadly, I believe Charlottesville will now be used as a rallying cry for the leftists and the Communists as an excuse to continue to tear down our history.  This is not the end of that I have no doubt.

F these a holes.
