Destroying Statues Destroys Everyone's History...Even The Stupid People

SeattleLenin.jpg
[Vladimir Illych Lenin]*

I love statues, and will cross the street or walk down the block whenever I see one in a new city, and if it is someone with whom I am familiar, so much the better. But good, bad or indifferent, statues are a signal that someone thought that the guy who dug the first sewer ditch in London, or built the first submarine or flew the first balloon or knocked the snot out of the Army of The Cumberland at Chickamagua was important enough to commemorate.

They are history, of the man or event in question and of the time when the statue was erected...a snapshot of what people thought and felt at the time.

Lenin Rises in Germany: Time for the Good Guys to Take Down a Few Statues

If the MLPD is serious, how about a statue of Stalin? Museums and parks throughout Eastern Europe have more than a few available, presumably for sale. And the Chinese Communist Party is still producing Mao idols, before which the Chinese people are expected to genuflect. No doubt, Beijing could spare a couple for the MLPD, perhaps gratis as long as accompanied by a plaque praising the genius and greatness of Chinese President and CCP General Secretary Xi Jinping.

Alas, not everyone was happy with the MLPD’s loving gesture for the Bolshevik paragon. The district council in Gelsenkirchen-West passed a resolution in March stating the obvious: “Lenin stands for violence, repression, terrorism and horrific human suffering.” Germany, however, apparently in contrast with America, is a country in which law prevails, property is respected, and mobs are not tolerated. Explained the city council’s spokesman, Martin Schulmann, “only a very few people around the Marxist Party want [the statue], no one else.” But “we have no choice but to accept the court’s rulings, since the piece of land where the statue is due to be installed is privately owned.”

Bingo! "Privately owned." Game--Set--Match.

As much as I and many other normals are offended by a statue of Lenin, it is first and foremost on private property so none of my damned business. If some knucklehead wants to erect a statue of one of the premier (theoretical but the antecedent of real) mass murders in history, then have at it. There is no accounting for taste. And even more importantly, it is a glimpse into the profound unseriousness of modern Germany. They are existentially flawed. They have no will to protect their culture, and prefer the culture of their masters...Islam and communism.

So be it. But leave the statue intact, so future generations might be able to understand a bit about the mindset of the 21st Century German who willingly gave up his culture and his country to the marauding bands of wild-men and savages who were invited into Germany by...Germans!

*No, that's not the German statue...this one is in Seattle!

LOL, we had a 3 day long Mock Political convention our Senior Year.

Had the Audio Visual Club tape it.

It ended when those of us who were supposed to be 'security' did a military coup, and put the Biggest Nerd in School in as El Presidente! Had him walk in wearing Fatigues and a Castro Hat, chomping on a cigar.

I understand in later years they used that tape as what NOT to do during your convention.

31 Sad to admit, but the following is, to my mind, perfectly true today.

The "Cultural Marxists", won.
The "Long March Through The Institutions", worked.

American Conservatism, to me defined as the guardians of Anglo-American Civilization, was never a political philosophy worthy of the title. Merely "standing athwart history yelling STOP!" is not enough against people who throw multi-year-long riots every time they lose an occasional election or (even more occasionally) a Supreme Court decision - and are more often than not rewarded with more power afterward.

Anglo-American Civilization, and more broadly Western Civilization, needed not only to be defended in the strongest possible terms, but it needed to be advanced and, sadly, those of us who wished for either of these to happen were simply not up to the task.

Sorry folks, I think I'm done here. Will I vote for Trump? Of course I will. I will continue to donate to his campaign, monthly, as I have for the last 2-years. But it really doesn't matter at this point. The West, what little is left of it, will fall and, I assert, must fall. I need to take what little time I have left to do what little I can to try to get away from the blast radius, and that means, first and foremost, getting off any and all blogs and social media.

Please don't take this as a "Goodbye cruel world!" post. I'll lurk, probably at least weekly, but I have no intention of ever posting here or anywhere else again. I don't expect anyone to follow my lead, I gotta do me and you gotta do you.

Be well and be safe, sisters and brothers!

This sort of thing can be taught young. Older grandson once took the younger one's plastic dinosaur toy to use as a digging device, and broke off the tail. He didn't understand why his brother would be so unhappy about "that stupid toy". I insisted that the younger one use one of his toys to dig and of course it was similarly ruined. "Now I understand." It matters if your things are ruined, they are sociopaths with no empathy if they are doing this past the age of 6, IMO

I think one of the major flaws of "conservatism" is the belief people have, that we're conserving things.

It's not unlike the hoarding discussion in the previous thread. This thing you're trying to hold onto, what use is it to you?

And if it's on fire, is it still of use?

Better figure out what to replace it with. Or let nature take its course.

Too many old school conservatives are lamenting what they're losing. Time to put that aside and figure out what you want to build for the future.

I'm puzzled by those doing all the lamenting. Why not actually fight and defend our values and laws against those who seek to destroy them? Why give up?

The only reason we're losing anything is because we have yet to fight back against our enemies. This need not be. We know who's doing this. They're in our face about it in fact. They're like progressive Terminators and absolutely will not stop. They can't be reasoned with. It's up to us to stop them.

152 101 If Irish Americans looked up from their pretending to like Guinness (Arthur Guinness was an Orangeman, by the way) and realised that the IRA is an openly Revolutionary Socialist organisation with current close financial ties to Cuba, Venezuela, FARC and Christ know what other fellow travelling ne'er do wells -not to mention their Islamic ties, then maybe the scales would fall from their eyes.

Through the Cold War, the IRA was primarily funded by the Soviets. They were trained by the Soviets.

They were supported by the Kennedys not because Irish, but because Soviets.

"Law" doesn't jail people. That takes "power". Power to physically detain and then contain someone against their will.

Those with that power have chosen not to use it in that manner - regardless of written law.

Do you get it now ? Law, in and of itself, means nothing. Power does as it pleases. Sometimes, it pleases those in power to uniformly implement law as written and understood.

But most important is who holds the power. Law, in and of itself, don't mean much. It certainly does not constrain power.

157 Count me on Team Berzerker, at heart if not in fact.

Things have remained relatively calm thus far, down here in Galveston County, TX. But it's a veneer. We're too close to the leftist infestation of Houston for it to be otherwise.

Perspective: League City, TX is the Northern-most city in Galveston County, and the most highly populated city in said County. About 105,000 or thereabouts. Roughly 1/3 of the adult population holds a Concealed Weapon License. And it's a VERY "Red", Republican voting enclave; you'd think it'd be a Citadel of Conservatism.

And you'd be wrong. It's Karen Central, Soccer Mom City, writ large.

When the Actual Shit hits the Actual Fan, I'm *most* doubtful about League City factoring in to our defense. The men will want to. Their wives will object, and that will be that.

Now, Santa Fe, TX, also in Galveston County?

Sure, let's send antifa there into the mix. During Prime Time. On Pay Per View.

Santa Fe will then have a budget surplus for the next decade. That town is the very buzzsaw of a WILLING rifle behind every blade of grass, and then some, of which Yamamoto spoke.

Pity, land prices there are off the chart. *sigh*

Yep. I understand their frustration, but I also understand Trump's strategy, and it is one to which I subscribe.

In the past, an American (as opposed to a liberal) President would have acted, and the whole thing would inevitably blow up in his face. The "national conversation," so beloved of the Reds, mass demonstrations, calls for a general strike (also beloved of the Reds), the whole bit.

But Trump didn't take the bait. The Reds must have an epic case of blue balls right now.

161 Jimmy Kimmel says he is "embarrassed" for his comedy from 20 years ago BUT - that he won't be cowed by people who feign outrage and bully people with it.

Welcome to the party pal!!!

I wonder if anyone is going to say the obvious. That this country had a sense of humor back in the 90's and honestly until maybe a couple of years ago, and that's why comedy wasn't a problem then. No other reason. We were all adults and able to laugh at ourselves and get on with the more important things in our lives.

The fact is we were told for 40+ years that comedy and art were unimpeachable modes of free expression and so if someone wanted to dump Jesus in a bucket of piss, Christians had to just sit back and take it. Blacks received no such lectures. Muslims certainly didn't. Nobody did. In fact I believe Christians are the *only* ones who ever did. But that is not being rectified here. We're just accommodating the squeakiest wheel as always.

Watching the news Marcia Chatelain, a provost's distinguished associate professor of history at Georgetown University, had a sense ofdéjà vuand an expectation of disappointment.


"The response to civil unrest from the business community has often been opening up opportunities and grafting themselves onto a narrative of civil rights," Chatelain said. "It doesn't work."

31 Sad to admit, but the following is, to my mind, perfectly true today.

The "Cultural Marxists", won.
The "Long March Through The Institutions", worked.

American Conservatism, to me defined as the guardians of Anglo-American Civilization, was never a political philosophy worthy of the title. Merely "standing athwart history yelling STOP!" is not enough against people who throw multi-year-long riots every time they lose an occasional election or (even more occasionally) a Supreme Court decision - and are more often than not rewarded with more power afterward.

Anglo-American Civilization, and more broadly Western Civilization, needed not only to be defended in the strongest possible terms, but it needed to be advanced and, sadly, those of us who wished for either of these to happen were simply not up to the task.

Sorry folks, I think I'm done here. Will I vote for Trump? Of course I will. I will continue to donate to his campaign, monthly, as I have for the last 2-years. But it really doesn't matter at this point. The West, what little is left of it, will fall and, I assert, must fall. I need to take what little time I have left to do what little I can to try to get away from the blast radius, and that means, first and foremost, getting off any and all blogs and social media.

Please don't take this as a "Goodbye cruel world!" post. I'll lurk, probably at least weekly, but I have no intention of ever posting here or anywhere else again. I don't expect anyone to follow my lead, I gotta do me and you gotta do you.

Be well and be safe, sisters and brothers!

I am old. And I remember what freedom was like. I think the last straw for me was when I saw how easy it was to cow the this country into submission over a rather ordinary virus and become no more than subjects for tyrannical elite. To do with us as the please.

What broken my heart further was how many people on this very blog bought into the meme book, line, and sinker.

I see no effort, none, to break this assault on freedom. I know it's easy to sit in a comfortable house and post grievances on a blog, but, to date, I see none of the grand pushback that so many have predicting for years.

The only thing I can do is refuse to participate in the political game the left pushed upon us. I do not wear a mask, I go where I wish, I say what what I want to say. And if they come for me for those things, I will meet them on MY property with all the violence I am capable of giving them.

I will probably die alone and be ridiculed for standing against the state, but I will die while defending freedom as it means to me.

I largely agree with this, although that does leave unresolved the problem of the civil rights of those who disagree with the lefties but happen to live in those cities. Yes, they could move, but why should they have to? I think the problem can be attacked at multiple levels. Arresting the street level goons is the purview of local law enforcement and government, although they're clearly failing. That's when the Feds should step in, a la the Brown school integration troops. However, these are also clearly interstate conspiracies, and as such, the Feds can and should find the leaders and spool up the helicopters.
Politically speaking, Trump is doing the smart thing, but that isn't necessarily what he should be doing to protect American citizen's rights.

My conjecture: the Germans are concerned that they might be binary, either accede to everything, or roll the cattle cars again, with nothing in between.

213 I think the problem can be attacked at multiple levels. Arresting the street level goons is the purview of local law enforcement and government, although they're clearly failing. That's when the Feds should step in, a la the Brown school integration troops. However, these are also clearly interstate conspiracies, and as such, the Feds can and should find the leaders and spool up the helicopters.
Politically speaking, Trump is doing the smart thing, but that isn't necessarily what he should be doing to protect American citizen's rights.

222 The blue state governments will come down on us like a ton of bricks while giving the rioters space to destroy should we fight back.

The only solution is to coalesce red counties into forming their own states and seceding from what essentially are city-states that have been ruling over them too long, and militarizing citizens as a defense should the blue asswipes be reckless enough to call in the national guard.

It can be done, but we need to be more serious and organized about this. Our country is a sea of red with lakes of blue, so it's viable. For example, why should we secede ALL of Colorado? Keep the red counties and let the left have Denver. We'll continue to have the best parts of America while the left keep the shitholes they turned their cities into.

I've challenged my buddies to this intellectual exercise several times. After all, easier to make the cities toe the line than succession.

Yep. Making sure nervous people know they should be taking care of politics and violence at the local level is the right (ha) move, even if it briefly sucks for the locals.

Trump is a speedbump. If he can help people understand that their government is their job, then that's the best long-term course of action. BLM knows how it works. They go to individual houses and threaten until they get what they want.

If the feds step in, the responsibility for everything past that moment moves over to someone who doesn't live or work locally, and no one bears any responsibility or accountability.

255 Talking of desecrating sacred monuments, here's a joke on the subject (sort of) to lighten the mood.

Two wives go out on the town for a girls night out.
They both get righteously drunk, so drunk that they can't get a taxi cab or Uber to take them home.
Since they don't live very far away they decide to walk home instead.
Halfway through their unsteady staggering one of the women says,
"Hold on, I think I'm going to wet myself, I desperately need to pee."
The other replies,
"Me too but we can't go here in the street."
The first one says,
"I know, there's the cemetery round the corner. I know for a fact that they don't bother locking the side gate. We can go in there and no one will see us at this time of night."
So off they totter to the cemetery side gate.
Sure enough it's unlocked and they go into the graveyard to relieve themselves.
They both squat near some bushes to complete their task when one of them pipes up,
"Oh God, I've got nothing to wipe myself with. Oh well I'll just use my panties instead."
So she does and then stuffs the panties into her purse.
The other woman has the same problem but thinks,
" These panties are brand new! Theyre too expensive to use like that." So she looks round in the dark to see what to use. She realises that she's been peeing beside a fresh grave and that there's a big wreath with a ribbon across it sitting on the grave right next to her. So she thinks, "Well that's no good to them wherever they are." And she rips the ribbon off the wreath, wipes herself with the ribbon and then pulls up her panties and joins her friend to drunkenly stumble the rest of the way home.

The next morning her husband gets an angry phone call from the other girl's husband.
"That's the last time that she's going out with your wife!" he rages, "she came home last night bare assed and blotto with her panties shoved in her purse!"

"Ha! You think that's bad?!" comes the despairing reply, "mine came home last night four sheets to the wind with a note shoved up her twat that said, 'Thanks for all the great times and fantastic memories. From all the Boys at the fire station.' "

264 What if the left is planning to flood precincts with last minute mail in ballots. When the states try to methodically go through the ballots to verify and count them, the left creates a ruckus and demands a fast count for democracy, files lawsuits, demand that, because of the delay, even late ballots have to be counted. What if they picked an obvious loser like Biden, so that as trump is leading the early polls, Stacy Abrams can scream about voter suppression and stealing the election. What if their intention is to delay the final tally so that the EC electors can not be chosen and can not meet at their appointed time to elect a president. What if Pelosi is ready to immediately vote for president in the house when the ED does not meet. Enough dems refuse to vote for Biden, but his ouster looks legitimate. They coalesce on some marxist who has been quietly waiting in the shadows. The dems demand that their chosen president be sworn in. The vote tallies are finally made, the EC makes it's vote for trump. Now there is a war between the duly elected Trump, who the left will claim stole the election through massive voter suppression and fraud, and the House voted marxist. There are riots and violence, and the marxist tries to gain the trust of the people by promising to stop the violence if only we would give him (her) autonomous power.

Yep. Making sure nervous people know they should be taking care of politics and violence at the local level is the right (ha) move, even if it briefly sucks for the locals.

Trump is a speedbump. If he can help people understand that their government is their job, then that's the best long-term course of action. BLM knows how it works. They go to individual houses and threaten until they get what they want.

If the feds step in, the responsibility for everything past that moment moves over to someone who doesn't live or work locally, and no one bears any responsibility or accountability.

the major routes into a city?

I've challenged my buddies to this intellectual exercise several
times. After all, easier to make the cities toe the line than
succession. The reality is it is difficulty to block every roan in and
out of a city, but select the top ten or so key intersection and you can
jam it up so badly that it will basically come to a standstill.

After that, its about crowd control.

It literally can't be done. Service War Colleges game this scenario out and it's almost physically impossible to blockade a major US City. Too many ways in and out and not enough manpower to block them all.

Plus you can only try and do one major City at a time, that would give the others a hint of what was coming.

They typically use NYC as a case study and there simply isn't the manpower to block even 75% of the City.

274 268 Traffic on I-5 gets blocked when they pull somebody over because every idiot that drives by has to slow down and gawk. I had to drive down to San Diego one 4th of July weekend. I-5 was slower than shit.
Posted by: Vic at June 28, 2020 01:24 PM (mpXpK)


Exactly.

Although in fairness, it's not necessary that people gawk. People slow down when anything unexpected happens (as they should), and when the freeway is at maximum capacity, any slowing generates a longitudinal pressure wave that works its way back upstream. Which is why traffic is slow miles away from the original problem.

275 About the elderly black man in D.C. arguing with the BLMorons and Antifags about the Emancipation statue: odds are high that at least one of his ancestors helped pay for it. It was put up in 1876, so the freedman who paid for it must all have been old enough to have jobs in the 1870s. People who were in the workforce in the 1870s would be the same age as the old man's great-great-great (g3) or great-great-great-great (g4) or great-great-great-great-great (g5) grandparents. Everybody has 32 g3 gp's, 64 g4's, and 128 g5's. If tens of thousands of freedmen paid for the statue, odds are high that more than one of them was among the old man's 224 g3-g5 ancestors. He has a right to feel protective.

I once mentioned my grade school (Blessed Sacrament) and no less than *three* people on that thread claimed that as their Parish (were you one? it was years ago). I gave them some history, since the school closed down in 1986 (likely due to embezzling by their former accountant who burned the old parish school building down to cover his crimes) and has since been sold and is a very pricey private elementary.

I'm guessing a week. Long enough that grocery store shelves are empty, gas stations are bone dry, etc.

I'm guessing it's easier to defend small towns than it would be to blockade large cities.

Nevertheless it's going to take a massive amount of coordination and cooperation with mutual counties to effectively become new states. You have to come up with all kinds of contingencies and plans to protect and guard infrastructure to maintain self-sufficiency, including energy and critical assets that exist within red counties such as the water supply and oil.

The reality is cities depend on a LOT of things that only exist in red counties. Either they'll have to be driven to the negotiating table or they will try to take it by force. And they will be stupid and try to take it by force because they are nothing else but fucking fascists.

Then there's a question of what to do with leftist idiots that reside in red counties, because guaranteed most will need to be expelled. Bye.

Intercommerce will have to be completely realigned, and WOKE companies will attempt to signal their support of the mob by closing stores in red counties in an attempt to starve the masses.

There's a lot to think about and it involves predicting how blue leftists will react and how they'll attempt to starve or force red counties back into realignment, but if we account and plan for them accordingly, a national divorce is viable and would leave left city-states isolated and severely weakened.

I have been hearing that since I was in my 20s many decades ago and other than Virginia it ain't happened yet.

And it only happened in VA because of DC.


Not saying it can't happen but, I have read decades worth of will Texas/Florida/Georgia, etc. turn blue this election cycle op-ed's.

Yep. That's how it works. Between the locusts moving down and the illegal alien American kids getting old enough to vote, we're at the point where the plan comes together.

353 Out for a morning walk along the harbor of a nearby town. In addition to there being a lot of friendly, happy people (online world is so much darker and depressing), but there were a bunch of middle-aged guys having an informal get together (set up camp chairs, cold beverages) around one of the prominent memorial statues there (a non-political one related to fishing industry). Think they were classic car enthusiasts, as the street was lined with classic cars. Fun! If the scheduled even was cancelled, they were having their own.

Wasn't until I was driving home that it occurred to me that that memorial might (will?) be targeted for destruction by the idiot mob. An idiot has already vandalized Plymouth rock and nearby monuments (this was right before the shutdown). UGH

354 Wouldn't a Trotsky statue be more appropriate in front of a Mexican food restaurant? Even better if it had a nearby vendor creating frosty treats with an ice pick.

It will happen to Georgia in a few years because all those millions of anchor babies have been reaching voting age and will be a flood in another voting cycle or two. The one that vote will go 95% Dem. It has already flipped several normally very red districts.

I don't remember exactly, but I'd be willing to bet the muslim guys driving around DC while one of them shot at people through a hole in the car trunk kept a LOT of people holed up in their apartments.

Two dudes.


Hell, I was talking about shooting engine blocks. There will be epic traffic jams trying to leave, a few well placed rounds makes the road impassable.

359 Don't ask how a guy over the pond in Ulster got addicted with Hey Jackass and from there to SCC and from SCC to here, but just to say that yes, I did but I'm not sure how.

Currently the 'Hey Jackass Chicago Shot Clock' is standing at -

A person is shot every: 2hrs 35mins

And a person is murdered every: 13hrs 18mins

The weekend shot tally from noon Friday to 6am Monday is at the minute 13 dead 37 wounded.
The dead include a one year old baby girl and a 10 year old girl.

That's nearing triple the figures from the same weekend last year. And there's still all tonight to go.



I'm not sure the Mayor of Chicago is even capable of passing itself off as a human. In looks and in values.

Yeah, I wasn't suggested anything horrible. Only pointing out that the military wargaming it is probably looking at it through a lens of politeness and decency.

362 Our historical trajectory at this time makes a future civil war a strong possibility. Perhaps a probability, even. To dismiss it as a possibility at all, is to deny the social fracturing you witness every day. Everyone hates each other, and none of the authorities have the remotest interest in smoothing over the differences. Quite the opposite; they place wedges in every crack and hammer as hard as they can.

I put it at 40/60 against, at this point. And if it doesn't come to pass, then the alternative is even worse.

363 I have often fantasized about having enough money to buy a small cabin in the wilderness up in the mountains for a get-away when/if it all goes to shit. But you would have to leave very early in the event to get there and be ready to defend it with deadly force. The real secret is the 30-30 rule. Never live within 30 miles of a city larger than 30 thousand people.

So far in 2020, I've had seven absolute newbie shooters to the local range, with three of them (family, 2 adults, one teen) now becoming regular weekly shooters, there. CHLs are in the adults' near future.

Also, thoroughly Red Pilled a couple in my neighborhood, over drinks and cigars on the porch over a period of evenings spanning months.

What broke through though, was the loan of my signed copy of Bill Whittle's book "Silent America, Essays from a Democracy at War".

A bit time capsuled, that. But it's core essays about what makes America AMERICA, remain some of the finest ever put to page.

I am a relentless proponent of our cause, and I see victories from the ranks of the unware, uniformed and undecided. Or at most, from the only "marginally blue".

The cure for the hard core ones will mean that all boundaries have been exceeded, and that there are no more restrictions nor penalties.

Open Season, no Bag Limits.

Otherwise? I'll just keep on dispensing Red Pills, far and wide as I'm able.

370 We have some unsavory Socialist types in American history that have statues.

Off the top of my head, I'd suggest we consider the proper place in American history of Eugene Debs and Bill LaFollette.

I do not think them of pure enough heart to have a visual representation in the public sphere.
