Absorbed by Greater DC, Alexandria Starts Scrubbing Southern Past

As the federal government grows, so does the Debt Star. It is expanding quickly into Virginia, which will soon become more a suburb of Washington than any recognizable part of the South. As territory is conquered, the region’s history is scrubbed:

In a town that once took considerable pride in its Confederate past, the Alexandria City Council voted unanimously Saturday to change the name of Jefferson Davis Highway and seek permission from the Virginia General Assembly to move a renowned statue of a Confederate soldier in historic Old Town. …

After a lengthy public hearing, the council agreed to try to relocate the “Appomattox” statue from the busy intersection of Prince and Washington streets, where thousands of motorists pass it each day. The pensive and unarmed south-facing Confederate soldier would be moved to a local history museum on the same corner.

…and from there to the city dump, when no one who might defend Virginia’s heritage is paying attention.

It was just a year ago that the city decided to end its practice of hanging three Confederate flags from traffic light poles at the “Appomattox” statue on Lee’s birthday and on Confederate Memorial Day.

Momentum is building. By the time the liberal Northeast Boston–Washington Corridor extends all the way to Florida, much more of American history will have been erased.

    Removing Confederate monuments over the second half of the last century was just a test. In the 21st century, they have begun removing American monuments that have nothing to do with “the racist South”. Many “patriotic” Americans who cheered the erasure of Southern heritage are now wondering why THEY are now under fire for “crimes against minorities”.

    Only totalitarians feel the need to erase the past.

    As Alexandria is hard corps Obama/Hillary territory, they’ll probably replace it with a statue of Obama.

    Some days Richmond, the former capital of the Confederacy, competes with Chicago for its black male syndrome body counts.

    1. They can’t let ” know that things were not always the way they are now.
    2. They can’t let them know that there are alternatives to totalitarianism.

    Alexandria has been on the decline for some time. I never liked it very much but at least it used to have its own character and sense of place. Now… it’s just another place that tourists used to go.

    Getting both in one place would simplify the problem.

    It will end when we can muster the will to tell them to piss off and either revolt or secede. However younger generations seem to be just fine with being slaves.

    They all keep feeding the lion, hoping to be eaten last. Newsflash, the lion will eventually eat all of you.

    That which you tolerate WILL get worse.

    Funny how the pearl-clutching burghers of Alexandria haven’t yet expunged references to the British royalty for whom we have to thank for giving us the problem of slavery to begin with.

    I was thinking more in terms of a Chesty Puller quote. Lt. Gen., then Col. Lewis “Chesty” Puller was in command of the 1st Marine Div in Korea when the Chinese came pouring across the Yalu River. From

    During the Korean War, the Chinese communists had overrun the Yalu River and the Marines battling them were in a running fight to reach the coast. Ten Chinese divisions surrounded Col. Lewis Berwell Puller’s 1st Marines. The indomitable “Chesty” Puller saw the situation with his own brand of logic: “Those poor bastards,” he said. “They’ve got us right where we want them. We can fire in any direction now!”

    What it doesn’t tell you is that he wasn’t all talk. His single division of Marines fought their way out of that situation and annihilated 7 of those 10 Chinese divisions in the process.

    Read the article if you get a minute, he volunteered for a combat in Vietnam at age 73! The guy was an animal.

    Ah YES, the AMERICAN WILL, something the LEFT has been trying to destroy from their start! I hope it will be the END of them eventually (SOON)!!
