Let’s not unfurl any new flags of hatred

True Believer?

 

 

“…the opposite of love is not hate — it’s apathy. It’s not giving a damn. If somebody hates me, they must “feel” something … or they couldn’t possibly hate. Therefore, there’s some way in which I can get to them.” ― Leo Buscaglia

T H E  N E W  D U K E S  O F  H A Z A R D ?

The question of the day: ladies and gentlemen: were the rowdy members of the right (skin heads, neo-Nazis, white supremacists) who became embroiled with members of the left actually devoted art aficionados who believed the statues representing the history of their south being threatened and were works of art and not public displays of a turmoil past?

Were their anti-Jewish mantras misunderstood by a public obsessed with destroying the core values and beliefs of the historic south?

President Trump labelled the statues beautiful work of art perhaps akin to the guillotine of long ago.

However you look at them the statues are creating more contentious feelings across the land.

Trumps half-hearted and forced denunciation of the past weekend’s rioting truly did not unite a country already reeling in chaos and suspicion.

The new Dukes of hazard are scripting further appearances throughout the country.

  1. I really don’t see anything wrong with the statues of civil war generals. We visited zGettysburg and saw small statues of every state that fought and where they stood etc, it’s all history to me. We all have opinions on which side was correct and I think it should be recognized. Not all historical figures are worthy of statues, but they exist. I just know I felt proud to stand where the Vermont militia stood. I can see both sides but the statues to me, are just an excuse to cause more violence and hatred.
