Lt. Gen. A.P. Hill, CSA
This makes me mad.
In its continuing campaign to purge the city of its history, the Richmond City Council expects to have all Confederate monuments removed by the end of the summer. The only snag is the monument to General Ambrose Powell Hill–because the general’s remains are buried within the monument (https://www.nbc12.com/2021/05/21/final-remnants-confederate-monuments-richmond-could-be-gone-this-summer/).
On his worst day, A.P. Hill was better than a dozen Richmond City Councils on their best. Critics have called them “degenerates” and “social justice terrorists.” I’d say that was putting it mildly. What could be more cowardly, more base, more vile, more contemptible, or more indecent than making war on the defenseless dead? Even the dead aren’t safe from these maggots.
The South’s crime was that they lost the war. Now the cowards of the North are coming for their bones.
They ought to reflect on what would have happened to Washington, Franklin, Madison, Jefferson, and all the rest of our country’s founders–whose hard work and hardships created the luxury from which today’s American liberals sling hatred at them–had Britain won our War for Independence. They’d have all been hanged as traitors.
But to expect any kind of gratitude from leftids is absurd.
