The "Real Haters" Can All Eat Shit and Die!

Governor Kay Ivey of Alabama just signed into law a bill that would protect all monuments and markers which have been in place for forty or more years. The law also prohibits the changing of school names, etc. that have carried a persons name for 40 or more years. Monuments in question between twenty and forty years will be approved/disapproved by special commission.

Under heavy gunfire teenage heroine, Emma Sansom, guided Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest's troops across Black Creek near Gadsden on May 2, 1863. This was after Union Col. Abel Streight had burned every bridge he crossed as he was retreating east from a three day running battle that began in what is present day Cullman County. Forrest's men captured Streight and his entire command near Cedar Bluff (AL)  just west of Rome, Georgia. Forrest had his cavalry ride in a wide circle that passed near the crest of hill above the valley where Streight's forces had bivouacked creating the illusion of a greatly superior force while in fact Streight's troops outnumbered those of Forrest by 3 to 1. I have seen the dress that Emma wore that day in the state archives building in Montgomery. Union troops were firing from the opposite bank of Black Water Creek. No less than three bullets based through her dress. According to accounts, Emma raised her fist and shook it at the Union soldiers. They stopped firing and cheered the sixteen year old before retreating. After she had showed Gen. Forrest a place to ford the creek, he took her home and in token of his gratitude, he gave her his pair of deerkskin gauntlets (they are in the archives with the dress) Thank goodness monuments like this one and the school that bears Emma's name will be preserved along with her selfless act of heroism.

  2. Me too. EK. Now they need to go o email step further and reproduce the ones taken down here in Birmingham. Including fixing the name on the Birmingham Airport. They keep giving it the name of one person or another who had nothing to do with flying.

    1. Thanks Scott and all. The truth will stand when the world is on fire. These sowers of dissension fail miserably in all their "historical commentaries". These charlatans always fail to mention the exemplary and honorable deeds of Southern heroes, the fact that many free black men (and some free black women) owned slaves in both northern and southern states. Also, they purposefully neglect the reality that in most Southern communities black, white, brown and yellow get along just fine. None of this propaganda is by accident and neither is it a coincidence that these purveyors of hate fail to make mention that in many northern states (from the first white settlers to 1865) slavery was legal and commonplace. Slavery was not the cause of the civil unrest that infected this country in the years between 1861-65. Slavery is the bygone institution by which the leftist chose to keep the races divided. Sadly, many blacks (along with members of other races) are enslaved by .gov today and do not even know it.

  4. For good or bad history is what defines who we are as a nation and as a culture. Destroying monuments and re-writing history does not heal old wounds. It just helps to undermine the culture, which is what the real goal of these communists and facists want.

  5. Angry Mike has a link to a Richmond-Times poll, whether or not the city should take down Confederate monuments.

    I am a Northerner, but I ain't no damn Yankee - there IS a difference. I voted no! The erasing of history should not be condoned. This is no different than ISIS destroying historical artifacts all across the Middle East, because they don't align with what they believe.

    1. Exactly Leigh. What these libtard-commie-rat-bastards are committing is cultural genocide. It is precisely what ISIS is doing all across Persia and what communists do and have done since Stalin all over the world. Erase a peoples history/identity and replace it with the made up story that fits the regime's design.

    2. Oh man, this is exactly the kind of stuff I have been preaching about for decades. If they would just keep pushing this kind of shit we could see or aims come true faster

  6. Expect the Federal courts to find some way to invalidate this on some very shaky pretext.

  9. We also need to boycott the new $20.00 dollar bills like we did the $2.00 bills in the 70's or 80's.
