    This remaking or transforming this country is sadly to say making unbelievable strides taking down the old and making way for the New World Order. This isn't just happening here in the USA but in other countries as well.
    What's going on is absolutely beyond any expectation of ever happening here in the USA. This movement isn't about racial or slavery or white supremacy. It's all about wiping the history slates clean. I just read that The Alamo having much of it being razed is very close to taking place. Discussion and planning has been happening since 2014. The Alamo is somehow being labeled as a cause of white supremacy.
    Yep use history to wipe the history slates clean. They are doing it and often in the dark of night. Kiss this country's history goodbye. BTW the protestors/marchers both left and right somehow came in on the same buses. My guess is both sides paychecks came from the same source also.

    First They Came For the Statues now they are going after total transformation. Patriotism will be shut down or at least not spoken or seen.

    As you know, a statue was destroyed this week in Durham, North Carolina. The monument of a soldier that was not dedicated to anyone in particular, but symbolized the conscripted, drafted, young men who fought for the Confederacy from North Carolina.

    It was pulled down and then stomped on by a crew of radical leftists, by members of the Workers World Party, Industrial Workers of the World, Democratic Socialists of America, and the ubiquitous antifa gang. In other words, these people and their organizations -- in strong and constant support of North Korea -- are about as far left as you can go without falling off the edge of the earth.

    There is an ongoing and very uncivil war against Confederate statues. The horribly impoverished and crime-ridden city of New Orleans recently spent more than $4-million to take down four monuments.

    Other cities and towns across the South are making plans to move or demolish tens of dozens of other statues, and Baltimore trashed four monuments in the dead of night, in wee hours of very early Wednesday morning.

    Of course, reasonable people can make a powerful argument that statues of Confederate soldiers might have no place in America. These men, at least indirectly, fought to defend the then-worldwide and odious practice of slavery along with their states' rights.

    But no one must ever even begin to start believing this will end with a hundred or so historical statues, and they already have Washington and Jefferson and Madison and others of the same status in their sights. The left is on a scorched-earth, power-crazed, total war and destruction warpath against anything it considers even slightly distasteful -- to them -- in America's past.

    Slaveholders across the ages and across the globe appear to be next in line, and in that regard Yale University is especially instructive. Last year university president Peter Salovey vowed that Yale's Calhoun College would keep its name, even though John C. Calhoun, Yale class of 1804, was a powerful defender of slavery.

    Just a few months later, Salovey caved to pressure and announced that Calhoun's name would be sandblasted off any buildings. Salovey exemplifies the "courage" many college administrators are displaying these days as they timidly melt before the onslaught of the left.

    But it will not stop with John C. Calhoun. Elihu Yale himself was a slave trader, as was every minimally successful person on earth of every race and creed prior to the mid-1800s, whose actions were arguably worse those of Calhoun. You don't think there are lots of "aggrieved" leftists who want the entire university renamed? Think again.

    Then there's Brown, another elite Ivy League institution. It was founded by a slave holder, of course, who built the school with money donated by the slave-trading Brown family of Rhode Island.

    Princeton has its own issues, but not with a slave owner.
    Former school president Woodrow Wilson, who later moved to the White House and was a liberal hero, an icon, held some truly horrific and very open retrograde views of blacks. His harsh anti-black programs set black American causes back a full century.

    The university recently removed his photograph from a dining hall because it was deemed "unduly celebratory." It was also, you know, not in keeping with Princeton's eternal desire to be "truly diverse and inclusive."

    While Brown, Princeton, and Yale are in the North, hundreds of schools in the South are named for slave-holders and Confederate officers. If statues of Robert E. Lee have to come down, why in the world does Washington and Lee University get to keep its name? General Lee became the school's president soon after he surrendered to his West Point classmate, General Grant, at Appomattox Court House.

    When the left is finished with Robert E. Lee, they will begin tearing down all the monuments dedicated to slave-owners George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison. Sure, that'll take a while, a short while, but left-wing activists have little on their hands but time and anger and "outside" money.

    Back up north, some sly leftist Philadelphia vote-getting politicians and their protesters are now demanding that a statue of former Mayor Frank Rizzo be removed from center city. Rizzo was an extremely popular Democrat, but he was a guy of his time and of his big city streets, not exactly a racially sensitive fellow. Ergo, his statue must go, all facets of his memory must also be expunged.

    This is all absolutely reminiscent of, identical to, the Soviet Union's purges, Pol Pot in Cambodia and China's Cultural Revolution, where out-of-favor history and officials got "politically whitewashed by leftists." Their monuments disappeared, their images vanished from photographs, their names and deed and contributions -- regardless of how massive -- were eliminated from history books.

    In the Soviet Union, the whitewashing of history finally ended when the evil of communism was toppled, along with statues of Lenin and Stalin.

    Now our American leftists are the ones doing the toppling. Civil War generals, slave owners from centuries past, anyone or anything not deemed politically correct by the standards of the 2017 left.

    The movement was already well under way before last weekend, but what happened when the mayor and governor -- with 2000 cops and National Guard on-site -- allowed the Alt-left and Alt-right to repeatedly clash in Charlottesville was an accelerant to the flames.

    How far will it go, when will it end? That depends on how emboldened the protesters feel and when public officials will finally draw a line. People on the left, by nature and by definition, are always seeking new ways to be offended, regardless of how tiny, new ways to destroy traditional America. After the schools and towns and buildings and statues and streets and parks, there will surely be something else "American" for the left to tear down.
