Last week, the city of Richmond, Virginia, took down a huge statue of a traitor to the United States, erected in 1890 to remind Black Virginians that they were inferior to White Virginians and powerless to stop the daily terror and murder to which they were being subjected.
The removal was long overdue and, really, we have statues commemorating slave-owning, racist traitors who took up arms against the United States? (Rhetorical question because we're idiots.)
As Republicans are apparently incapable of reading history books or going to a museum, they of course bitched about this. Among other reasons, they whined that liberals are trying to eliminate the teaching of history as well as destroying our "heritage and culture", which is code for white supremacy.
A specific Republican dipshit issued a long statement. See if you can guess who it was. My thoughts interspersed.
Just watched as a massive crane took down the magnificent and very famous statue of "Robert E. Lee On His Horse" in Richmond, Virginia. It has long been recognized as a beautiful piece of bronze sculpture. To add insult to injury, those who support this "taking" now plan to cut it into three pieces, and throw this work of art into storage prior to its complete desecration.
Yes, this was a magnificent, very famous, and beautiful sculpture of an asshole sitting on a horse. We don't have enough of those.
Robert E. Lee is considered by many Generals to be the greatest strategist of them all. President Lincoln wanted him to command the North, in which case the war would have been over in one day. Robert E. Lee instead chose the other side because of his great love of Virginia, and except for Gettysburg, would have won the war. He should be remembered as perhaps the greatest unifying force after the war was over, ardent in his resolve to bring the North and South together through many means of reconciliation and imploring his soldiers to do their duty in becoming good citizens of this Country.
So much stupid to unpack here. The Civil War would have been over in a day if Lee had been in command of the North? Truly he was a genius who could also break the laws of time and space.
Lee chose the "other side" because he loved Virginia? He also loved SLAVERY or he wouldn't have violated his oath of loyalty and fought to preserve it.
The South would have won the war except for Gettysburg? Nope. Even had they won there, the South's only hope (and the whole point of the Pennsylvania campaign) was to encourage the North to give up the war *politically* and that was unlikely. The South was already outmatched militarily.
Lee was a good citizen *after* he led an insurrection against the U.S.? How noble of him.
Our culture is being destroyed and our history and heritage, both good and bad, are being extinguished by the Radical Left, and we can't let that happen! If only we had Robert E. Lee to command our troops in Afghanistan, that disaster would have ended in a complete and total victory many years ago. What an embarrassment we are suffering because we don't have the genius of a Robert E. Lee!
And there we have the white supremacy buzzwords. Taking down statues of traitors and racists isn't destroying anything worth saving. No civilized nation should have statues of such deplorable people.
Robert E. Lee would have commanded us to victory in Afghanistan? Yeah, I'll give him that. Lee is well-known for his expertise in the use of air power against an entrenched terrorist insurgency in inhospitable terrain.
One final note. The human hemorrhoid who wrote this was the Commander in Chief of all U.S. armed forces for four years. Is he admitting that he couldn't end the disastrous war in complete and total victory during that time? Is he admitting that someone is actually superior to him at something? I thought he knew more than all the generals, or is that only the living generals? If only Genghis Khan had been available!
That's enough on this moron.
