The Destruction of Silent Sam

by | Aug 27, 2018 |

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

American philosopher George Santayana once said, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Those words are worth remembering. As a 1989 alumna of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, I am appalled how, on August 20, 2018, law-enforcement officers stood down while anarchists, euphemistically referred to as more noble-sounding “protesters,” destroyed the statue of “Silent Sam.” Silent Sam was a bronze statue of a Confederate soldier commissioned by the Daughters of the Confederacy and gifted to the University in 1913. Three people arrested following the heinous act of vandalism were charged with misdemeanors.
Officials made a serious mistake in judgment when they failed to preserve Silent Sam and the part of our nation’s heritage he represented. By not enforcing laws against vandalism, police were complicit in the destruction of public property. But behind all this stands a rather common culprit – the ubiquitous Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).
In 2016, the SPLC released a report titled “Whose Heritage?”. The report “cataloged 1,503 monuments, place names, state holidays, and other symbols of the Confederacy in public spaces across the South and Nation.” The SPLC updated its numbers in June 2018, to 1,728 such symbols. By publishing the locations of the symbols, the SPLC had conducted the research that made it easier for anarchists to destroy such symbols. Denying such intent doesn’t get the SPLC off the hook; the bait was set.
Those who seek to destroy Confederate symbols see them as markers of white supremacy rather than artifacts of our shared national history. In August 2017, the SPLC drafted a letter encouraging people to demand the removal of the monuments and symbols to avoid violence such as what occurred in Charlottesville, Va., in 2017. In Charlottesville, anarchists played a significant role in the conflict-enforcement officers stood down yet failed to separate anarchists from protesters who had valid permits to be there. Three lives were lost in the process.
If we ignore the violent destruction of public and private property because such symbols “offend” some people who claim moral superiority over others, we increase the likelihood that a future generation will follow suit and yank down the symbols lauded by the current generation’s cultural elites. This sort of thing always works both ways.
America is in grave danger of descending into a totalitarian society governed by the Political Left. Nineteen Eighty-Four, a book authored in 1949 by George Orwell, has proven itself prescient. Orwell wrote, “The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.” Nothing is sacred, not even our Constitution.
Orwell’s classic book depicts the fictional state of Oceania. Oceania is a totalitarian society in which “Big Brother” watches every move, and thought police lurk around every corner. Winton Smith, the protagonist, notes, “Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”
Unless we get a grip and resist the self-righteousness of the anarchists, who are nothing but modern-day American terrorists, we will descend into the broken and miserable society described by Orwell.
The Marxists, who have always wanted to deconstruct and destroy America, will have won, and they will have done so by strategically using and manipulating the pain and suffering of racial minorities and the disaffected groups that Marxist professor Herbert Marcuse knew held the potential to destroy America.
Who among us will stand up and fight back?

Biden’s Lost Words: “Leave no man behind”

Biden’s Lost Words: “Leave no man behind”

Joe Biden, President of the United States of America, once known as the greatest country in the world (before January 2021), surrendered utterly and completely to the Taliban terrorists with barely a murmur, making the United States the world’s newest state sponsor of global terrorism. His decision to ignore our time-honored pledge ‘to leave no man behind’ resulted in…

Vaccine Pharmacovigilance and Failure of Early Warning Systems to Limit Death and Disability

Vaccine Pharmacovigilance and Failure of Early Warning Systems to Limit Death and Disability

The public has been much more responsive to this system than the vaccine manufacturers (Pfizer, BioNTech, Moderna, and JNJ), the program sponsors (FDA/CDC), and the media. Collectively these “vaccine stakeholders” have largely ignored the astronomical number of deaths, hospitalizations, urgent care visits, and permanent disability occurring after COVID-19 vaccination…

The Second Amendment Insures Peace Through Strength

The Second Amendment Insures Peace Through Strength

The final bulwark against this genocide, now coming against Constitutional Americans, those who believe in liberty over tyranny⏤is the Second Amendment. The Second Amendment brings peace through strength, love through strength. The Second Amendment is a message of love because it is a message of life. Put simply, a way to stay alive in the face of Democrat-run genocide…

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough, #5

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough, #5

Vaccines are coming soon for children under 12. This is a big problem. How should I prove to my ex that my kid does not need a vax? – Can Dr. McCullough please explain the argument against everyone needing to be vaxxed for herd immunity to COVID? – How can 96% of all US doctors be covid vaccinated? Makes me feel like being unvaccinated is a bad choice. Are these stats correct?

Here’s Why the Biden Coup Tactics Will Soon Escalate

Here’s Why the Biden Coup Tactics Will Soon Escalate

They will recruit the CCP, Iran, the Taliban, the illegal immigrants to do their dirty work, just as they did with BLM and Antifa. The Leftist tour de force will attempt to exploit every imaginable tactic they can harness to conquer our republic. But they can never take our souls without our permission. Every unharnessed soul is a threat to Communism…

Charter of Umar – Pact of Umar

Charter of Umar – Pact of Umar

Historians are NOT unanimous as to which Umar this Charter / Pact or Covenant is actually attributed. In the final analysis, it is irrelevant to whom it should be attributed since the Conquering Muhammadan Muslims implemented it and have been doing so for the last 1400 years and continue to do so in the 21st century, in all Sharia-compliant Muslim states…

Government Avoids Shutdown…For Now

Government Avoids Shutdown…For Now

Failing to raise the debt ceiling would mean the government would default and would not be able to pay its bills on time. Essentially, we are bankrupt, and the people are the debtors in possession. The far-left sector of our government is trying to raise the United States debt ceiling so they can push through their 3.5 trillion’ Infrastructure bill.’ Here are some highlights or lowlights…

A Country Without Honor, Accountability, or Trust

A Country Without Honor, Accountability, or Trust

What went wrong with the botched-up and horrifying withdrawal from Afghanistan? Austin, Milley, and McKenzie were what went wrong, and they tried to throw demented Biden and the State Department under the bus. They are contemptible officers who have led our great military, I believe by design, into worldwide derision…

Why Socialist Democrats and the Intelligentsia Hate Free Markets

Why Socialist Democrats and the Intelligentsia Hate Free Markets

The more government has taken, the more growth has slowed, and the more growth slows, the more progressives blame free markets for the slowdown, telling us that the problem is not that we give so much of everything we make to government, but that we do not yet give enough. The fact that their policies are failing today does not faze the liberal: as always, the solution to government failure is more government…

Might the Vaccines Be Trump’s Achilles Heel for 2024

Might the Vaccines Be Trump’s Achilles Heel for 2024

While President Trump made some very controversial, later proven correct, calls early on — such as the banning of travel from China — other decisions, especially surrounding the CCP virus, are perplexing given what the astute public now knows. Trump’s blind and enduring support of Anthony Fauci, Dr. Birx, the WHO, the CDC, the FDA, the NIH, the NIAID, and many other COVID “experts” is mind-boggling…

What Happened to Men?

What Happened to Men?

The Communists need a weak class of people to go around policing the non-believers. Just like ANTIFA and BLM being their street armies, these board-shorts-wearing men are dutifully doing their bidding in big-box stores all over the country. It’s time to bring back masculinity. Let’s stop listening to the anti-men rhetoric that has been made mainstream by fringe members of the communist-left…

Covid is Political Power, Not Medicine

Covid is Political Power, Not Medicine

Effective medicines for treating Covid like Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine are now restricted by state and county boards of health. Drug stores, under pressure from these government agencies, now often refuse to fill doctor’s prescriptions for these medicines. The government is now diagnosing and prescribing for you, not your doctor. What to Do?

The Effectiveness of Natural Immunity

The Effectiveness of Natural Immunity

The impact and disruption to families and businesses are between the vaccinated and the unvaccinated. It’s a fight the federal government has been fueling with its aggressive stance in pushing and mandating vaccines. Dr. Peter McCullough explains, “SARS-CoV-2 causes an infection in humans that results in robust, complete, and durable immunity, and is superior to vaccine immunity.” Senator Ron Johnson sent a letter to the CDC and FDA…
