By now anyone that reads anything but the comic strip in the "newspaper" (often more truth there than anywhere else) has read about the Cultural Theft now being attempted in New Orleans. It is part of the anti-Confederate psy ops campaign that started last June. The Cultural Theft/Ethnic Cleansing/cultural Marxist cadre had been somewhat quiet for awhile and many of us figured that we were in the midst of that quiet period between their initial assault and the time when they had hoped we'd go back to sleep so they could clobber us with their second offensive. It seems that the second offensive has now arrived, at least in New Orleans ( a "Christmas" gift for the unwary). Either that or the mayor there is off schedule.
I received some interesting commentary from a man in Alabama yesterday that so well fits this situation. He wrote: "When ISIS finds a historical monument or statue that does not fit their narrative they destroy it. Congratulations New Orleans, you fit in well with ISIS in this category." Problem is, he's right on the money! When the culture thieves and ethnic cleansers (who are all cultural Marxists) find something that does not fit into their wished-for agenda then it is slated for destruction. It must be so otherwise their agenda could not go forward and America could not continue to be "fundamentally transformed."
A recent column on www.thenewsadvocate.com by Jeff Adelson noted: "Mayor Mitch Landrieu on Thursday (12/17) signed into law a measure allowing for the removal of four monuments to Confederate leaders and a Reconstruction-era white uprising, and he suggested that other controversial memorials in the city may be rethought as well. Having called in June for the monuments to come down in the wake of a shooting that left nine people dead in a South Carolina church at the hands of a white supremacist, Landrieu spent all summer and fall largely on the sidelines, at least publicly, of a growing controversy over the proposal." I guess that was the cooling off period to get everybody to go back to sleep.
Some might be tempted to ask what the shooting of folks in South Carolina had to do with Confederate statues in Louisiana, but they'd probably be shouted down in today's politically charged climate. You aren't supposed to ask that question. What you are supposed to do is to respond to the emotional hot button concept that anything Confederate is automatically evil and learn to do the goose-step so you can march in a scripted "spontaneous" demonstration somewhere to demand the removal of anything and everything Confederate from anyplace and everyplace.
The New Orleans City Council voted to cave in to cultural Marxism on this issue by a 6-1 margin and the mayor can't wait to get the wrecking crews out to get the monuments down and out of public sight--after all they have been the cause of so much misery for so many generations that people walking by them automatically come down with a case of the blind staggers or whatever. It sounds suspiciously like the old "I'm offended" game carried to a whole new level. And remember, this mayor is related to Mary (I'm for Obamacare) Landrieu who recently lost her seat in the US Senate, mostly because of Obamacare and her ultra-liberal position on just about everything.
When the lady on the city council who voted against this dared to disagree with the mayor (something that can be dangerous, politically and otherwise, in many cities) he responded to her with a politically correct retort of the kind that is supposed to silence the opposition once and for all. He said: "I didn't create this diversion, nor did I create the tension. You may be knowledgeable of the fact that actually slavery did." Ahhh, there's the statement you are not supposed to be able to argue against--it's the fault of slavery, and therefore, it's the white man's fault,so just shut up and sit down. Suffice it to say that slavery did not create this tension--cultural Marxists created this present tension for the purpose of furthering their agenda of Cultural Theft against the South--and they have fomented and nurtured this presumed tension for generations now until some situation could be brought forth to bring it to fruition. This clown in South Carolina, supposedly with the Confederate flag in his hand, seems to be that situation.
And the mayor has issued the not-so-subtle warning that he might not be finished yet. Street names could be changed--naturally to be named after "civil rights" leaders. If that round of ethnic cleansing manages to go forward then we may have another round where they start naming things after outright socialists or Marxists. That might take a little while, so stay tuned.
I know I sound like a broken record on this issue, but until folks start, in sufficient numbers, to stand up and protest all this, it will continue and the culture, history, faith and heritage they steal from you will also be stolen from your children and grandchildren. Think about that.
