Are you WOKE enough yet?

It used to be asked, albeit with incredulity, how far political correctness might go in America; shall it be required at last to demolish the Jefferson Memorial or the Washington Monument because their namesakes once owned slaves?

We now know the answer in fact. Yes, a committee formed by the mayor of D.C. has issued a report that recommends “the Federal government remove, relocate, or contextualize” those two assets, plus six others (page 21).

This is more than madness. It is depravity. It is both sickening and sinister. It is Marxian fascism. It is BLM’s Final Solution.

  1. No link? I tried to type in the link under the poster and got nothing.

    I would guess, if this is a real paper, that “contextualize” is a matter of adding some history at the sites about slave ownership among the founders. Certainly easier than moving any monuments.

    “Final Solution” is a bit of hype since that phrase was the Nazi program to eliminate Jews and others that did not represent the Aryan “race”. Kind of like “Jews will not replace us”. Remember the chants, torches and Nazi symbols by the “good people”.

    Of course some folks believe the Jews, particularly bankers here, there and everywhere, are responsible for all that ails humanity. So perhaps your reference to Final Solution was a Freudian slip. (Was Freud Jewish?)

    I wonder if there is any link to the following presidential statement in the Ingraham interview:

    Trump: “We had somebody get on a plane from a certain city this weekend, and in the plane it was almost completely loaded with thugs, wearing these dark uniforms, black uniforms, with gear and this and that.”

    Ingraham: “Where?”

    Trump: “I’ll tell you sometime. It’s under investigation right now. But they came from a certain city. And this person was coming to the Republican National Convention. And there were like seven people on the plane like this person, and then a lot of people on the plane, to do big damage.”

    (I believe on Tuesday, the plane was leaving Washington instead of arriving when queried by reporters. Minor detail, I suppose). Does “Certain City” have a letter designation like ORF or LAX? I could not find it listed.

    “Thugs, black uniforms and this and that…”. No black helicopters?

    Honestly, I believe Trump has fallen into the deep end of the conspiracy pool. Or at least that is where he wants Americans to drown if they follow him.

    IMHO

      The “poster” is the cover page page of the report. The body is contained in the PDF, which is presented in the reader window that shows the cover page. Do you see the scroll bar on the right?

      1. I did find the report. Yes, I think that some of the current hoopla over the founders’ slavery businesses is a bit complicated. But “contextualizing” the monuments is not a big deal. As a matter of fact, there are scholars that are still discussing the apparent disconnect between “All men are created equal…” and slave ownership.

        So in my opinion, clearing up history would be a good thing. And putting such additional information would not be just relegated to historians, but to the American people.

          On its face, interring Jews in “work camps” was not a big deal, either.

            The German people heard the rumors, like everyone else, but accepted the lie.

      I don’t think it is going too far to suggest that BLM would happily exterminate the white race, if it could. But the hyperbole is more useful for a different reason: Drawing attention to those who would make excuses for our American version of Gestapo.

      1. You are conveniently forgetting that the White supremacist gangs are all in when it comes to Jews being a major problem.

        And I think you are on very thin ice if your think BLM wants to exterminate White people. That is pretty much the talking points of conspiracy nuts and Nazis on the right and nudged along by Trump and his minions.

        There is hardly a dictatorship in the world that doesn’t rely on right wing para-military supporters to create havoc and carry out death squad duties. And we have a bunch of White gangs with camo and social media posts and just itching to start a war.

        ““I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump—I have the tough people, but they don’t play it tough—until they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad,” he told Breitbart on Monday in an interview published Wednesday.” March, 2019

        Gee, I wonder where Trump got the idea that motorcycle clubs would be his paramilitary gangs?

        “They call themselves The Night Wolves, “a new kind of motorcycle club,” or, sometimes, “Putin’s Angels.” And just as much as the Orthodox Church or the military, the Wolves have become a symbol of Vladimir Putin’s Russia. But the idea that they might be used as his extra-legal enforcers in times of trouble is usually implicit—embedded in their flag-waving Putinized patriotism—never really spelled out.”

            They are no more America’s problem than the Jews were Germany’s problem. That is to say, the Jews were not the boogeymen many anti-Semitic Germans believed them to be.
