So now people are trying to purge the Confederate flag from everything and anything. I mean, I can understand why certain folks might be offended by the flag and what it has come to stand for being on public taxpayer-funded property. But now Walmart is pulling anything and everything to do with it off the shelves? And eBay and Amazon following? Where does it all end? I mean, what’s next? Do we raze Mt. Vernon and implode the Washington Monument? After, all, George Washington owned slaves, didn’t he? Do we whitewash President John Tyler from all textbooks and scrolls? I mean, he was kind of a scoundrely character who supported the Confederacy after he left the White House. It’s absolutely insane what’s happening across this country right now. And National Review Online’s Rich Lowry is right: it’s the liberal left that is driving the outrage.

But no matter what happens, there’s a funny thing about history. You can’t change it. Oh, you can reinterpret it. You can even deny it took place – like all those Holocaust deniers out there. But facts are stubborn things, and the Civil War, no matter what Ken Burns and his ilk might tell you, wasn’t all about slavery. And there were a whole lot of soldiers who fought on the side of the South that either didn’t own slaves or could have cared one way or the other about slavery. What they did care about was an overbearing federal government seeking to interfere in the rights of states to determine their own paths and do what was right for them – concerns that are as applicable today as they were then, if not even more so. Right now you have a federal government completely out of control, managed and controlled by powerful elitists and interests, and an entrenched political class on both sides of the aisle whose only concern is to consolidate and expand their positions of power. And to heck with the people who elected them with the best of intent.

I’m tellin’ ya, this country right now is in dire need of a good revolution. You can agree or disagree about the Confederate flag flap all you want, but what’s next? Are we going to start making reparations to African-Americans who today have no connection whatsoever to the lives of those who lived as slaves? Is that where we’re going? And what else will the liberal left find offensive about our history to start wiping that away? Any places and things with Native American names? Do we start renaming towns, states, and rivers? Why not just demand everyone up and head back to their most recent country of origin and leave the U.S. for the Native Americans. Will that make everyone feel better? Gosh, I hope so, but you know liberals – no matter what you do they’ll always find some other outrage to moan and groan about.

What’s going on in this country right now is nothing more than sheer insanity. I guarantee you this: I’ll be ordering myself a Confederate flag cup to enjoy my morning coffee with. And you know why? Not because I support slavery nor am I a racist. But simply because this country needs a few rebels to start making some noise and to tell all the elitists back east to take their oh-so-outrageous outrage and stick it.

Update: See, I told y’all so! And I told y’all so! Like I always say, no one listens to The Great White Shank. Those who choose not to do so at their own peril! 🙂

I’m just waiting for the first courageous Republican to stand up and put an end to this madness and tell these leftist clowns to go to hell. These people are nothing but ignorant bullies with nothing better to do with their time.
