Pat Buchanan: "After The Confederates, Who's Next?"

Authored by Patrick Buchanan via Buchanan.org,

On Sept. 1, 1864, Union forces under Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman, victorious at Jonesborough, burned Atlanta and began the March to the Sea where Sherman’s troops looted and pillaged farms and towns all along the 300-mile road to Savannah.

Captured in the Confederate defeat at Jonesborough was William Martin Buchanan of Okolona, Mississippi, who was transferred by rail to the Union POW stockade at Camp Douglas, Illinois.

By the standards of modernity, my great-grandfather, fighting to prevent the torching of Georgia’s capital, was engaged in a criminal and immoral cause. And “Uncle Billy” Sherman was a liberator.

Under President Grant, Sherman took command of the Union army and ordered Gen. Philip Sheridan, who had burned the Shenandoah Valley to starve Virginia into submission, to corral the Plains Indians on reservations.

It is in dispute as to whether Sheridan said, “The only good Indian is a dead Indian.” There is no dispute as to the contempt Sheridan had for the Indians, killing their buffalo to deprive them of food.

Today, great statues stand in the nation’s capital, along with a Sherman and a Sheridan circle, to honor these most ruthless of generals in that bloodiest of wars that cost 620,000 American lives.

Yet, across the South and even in border states like Kentucky, Maryland and Missouri, one may find statues of Confederate soldiers in town squares to honor the valor and sacrifices of the Southern men and boys who fought and fell in the Lost Cause.

When the Spanish-American War broke out, President McKinley, who as a teenage soldier had fought against “Stonewall” Jackson in the Shenandoah and been at Antietam, bloodiest single-day battle of the Civil War, removed his hat and stood for the singing of “Dixie,” as Southern volunteers and former Confederate soldiers paraded through Atlanta to fight for their united country. My grandfather was in that army.

Many are upset about the destruction of our common history, even someone I know who is firmly on the left.

The real target here is ANY AND ALL SIGNS OF REBELLION, UPRISING OR CIVIL WAR BASED ON THE OLD! The new will be introduced as it is being now and the liberals are going to think they are heroes fighting hate and anger and evil. When in reality. They are the evil ones.

Tough times ahead.

The MSM programming is strong. And I shall only defend myself.

Baltimore is looking to follow the lead of New Orleans by removing its Confederate monuments, with its mayor suggesting Saturday that the city may auction them.

Mayor Catherine Pugh is exploring removing them entirely, according to The Baltimore Sun, and suggested Saturday the city may auction the monuments off. “The city does want to remove these,” Pugh said. “We will take a closer look at how we go about following in the footsteps of New Orleans.”

“New Orleans has taken on this issue,” Pugh said. “It costs about $200,000 a statute to tear them down. … Maybe we can auction them?”

Former Baltimore mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake has already put signs up in front of the city’s Confederate monuments calling them “part of a propaganda campaign of national pro-Confederate organizations to perpetuate the beliefs of white supremacy, falsify history and support segregation and racial intimidation.”

Baltimore’s Confederate memorials include ones dedicated to Robert E. Lee, Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson, Confederate women, Confederate sailors and soldiers, and Roger B. Taney, a chief justice who penned the Dred Scott decision barring blacks from citizenship.

Yikes: These Six Baltimore Schools Don’t Have A Single Student Proficient In State Testing

There are many problems plaguing Baltimore. The homicide rate is out of control, averaging one murder per day. In April, the city surpassed 100 homicides and its on track to having the highest homicide rate in the country. On top of this, the city has six schools, five high schools and one middle school, where not a single student is proficient in math and English.

Should we forget this? Is that what you and others are proposing?

I tend to learn from past experience. Others who want to bury the past? Doomed to repeat....

The reality is, anything displaying "whiteness" or "white positive", will be attacked and destroyed.

And that is not fair to us.. We're the only ones who can't be proud of our heritage....
