Destroying Our History

Editor, News-Register:

The individuals of the militant left, tearing down statues and monuments to the history of the United States and its formation, have become like ISIS, which destroyed the ruins of Palmyra and the al-Qaida rebels who ravaged the city of Timbuktu. Their acts of barbarism have found their way to America. These rebels are determined to destroy the history of those they deem a threat to their cause.

Knowledge of American history and its errors lead future generations to repeat the mistakes of the past.

If you really know your history, you will discover that all slave owners and Confederates were Democrats.

According to Patrick Buchanan’s column of 8-19-2017 in The Intelligencer, “While easy for the Republicans to wash their hands of such odious elements as Nazis in Charlottesville, will they take up the defense of the monuments and statues that have defined our history, or capitulate to the icon-smashers? In this Second American Civil War whose side are you on?”

As I said before, the Democrats have fallen from the wall of power just like Humpty-Dumpty and are using drastic measures in an attempt to put themselves back together again.

Could this be a ploy to regain the African-American vote?
