The Truth Matters

(They’re all dead and gone by now–the perfect opportunity for liberals to attack them.)

This is all I’m going to write about this fallen world’s news today; my soul can’t take anymore. Instead, I will blog animal videos and prayer requests (if I get any) today.

I’m not prepared to say whose lives “matter” and whose lives don’t. I don’t what Loretta Lunch–er, Lynch–trying to jail me for microaggression.

Suffice it to say that the Obama regime has poisoned race relations in this country, on purpose, creating a climate of rage and injustice-collecting among people who ought to have good will toward one another. And you can bet your bottom dollar that we’ll see more of it, a lot more, at the Democrat National Convention.

This race-hustling, this whipping-up of anger and resentment, has gone so far as to make war on the past, a war against the dead. A war against history.

One thing I am prepared to say is that the truth matters. Let history here defend the dead, in the words of Robert Selph Henry in his The Story of the Confederacy, first published in 1931, when there were a few Confederate veterans still living:

“The Confederacy was a belated attempt to exercise the right of a state to withdraw from the United States of America.

“Because it was belated, because it opposed a mere right in the abstract to the concrete forms of economics and the inevitable trend of history, because it was burdened with the defense of the anachronism of slavery, it failed…

“With its failure, the United States of America that we know was born… The old union of states federated together for specific and limited purposes died, to be succeeded by a new nation in which the states, North and South alike, have contentedly sunk from the sovereignty they so jealously maintained in 1787 to become little more than convenient administrative subdivisions of government.”

This is truth: and demonizing the dead, to serve the current political purposes of immoral and power-hungry individuals, can’t change it.

    Good old “HONEST ABE” didn’t know the meaning of truth .. he violated the Constitution by using troops against our own citizens. He took credit for having freed the slaves, but he didn’t care one iota about slaves. His primary concern was preserving a powerful central government and maintain control over the states..

      You’re so right, Goldbug. Lincoln has been immortalized and praised for something he had forced upon him.

      James Madison always held that there was no Constitutional (and he wrote most of it, so he should know) right to secession, but that the American people forever retained the right to overthrow the government if it became oppressive.
      This was a question that was left unresolved.
      President Buchanan did everything in his power to stave off civil war, and succeeded in doing so for four years. But Lincoln’s rigid commitment to the union, coupled with the action of hot-heads in the South and in the North, brought on the bombardment of Fort Sumter which made the war unavoidable.
      Lincoln was, I think, wrong; but it wasn’t just his fault that the worst happened.

    Thus began a creep of the government of men toward an eventual One World Government. And, we “Will” see this Government in the very near future.

    Well, it appears this country isn’t alone in the politically correct inane education system category:
