Commentary: The violence and tragic death of an innocent young woman resulting from the melee that occurred at the White Nationalists’ ‘Unite the Right’ protest held at Emancipation Park in Charlottesville, VA on August 12, 2017, was outrageous and reprehensible. Sadly, it reflected the volatile, prevailing atmosphere in America’s divisive socio-political environment and clearly manifests ominous times ahead. For the record, I consider racism from every source despicable and anathema to our civilized society. FYI, my dog in this fight is our great country, America.

Charlottesville has been dissected by self-anointed pundits’ ad nauseam, and doing so any further would be redundant. My purpose in writing this blog is to discuss the blatant hypocrisy and dangerous behavioral pattern stemming therefrom, as well as their troubling ramifications relative to America’s future, traditions, culture, and values.

Politics and Charlottesville’s Aftermath: Predictably, in the immediate aftermath of Charlottesville notable Whites and Blacks imbued with themselves and politically correct effluvium took center stage. Ignoring their self-proclaimed moral dictates of peace, tolerance, inclusion, and diversity these sanctimonious hypocrites intentionally acted with wanton abandon by further inflaming America’s already raging fires of racial hatred and division. In so doing they followed Rahm Emanuel’s infamous mantra: ‘Never let a serious crisis go to waste’. The most egregious acts of their grandstand performance included the following:

  • Blamed the violence on the Alt-Right and Trump while branding him a racist, White supremacist, White Nationalist, Nazi, and other such ad hominem attacks
  • Accused Trump of insensitivity for failing to more severely condemn the Alt-Right for racism
  • Played the trite race card to avenge slavery and revise the history of discrimination against Blacks by demanding the destruction of historic monuments associated with the Confederacy

Omnipresent Trump Haters: This stellar group was primarily comprised of politicians seeking face time and political capital, political pundits, race baiting activists, and MSM; all of whom are Trump haters that want his presidency destroyed by any means possible. The acts of these people encouraging destruction and removal of historic monuments was reprehensible; their deafening silence towards anti-US far left radical hate groups Antifa and BLM whose sole purpose is to stifle free speech with violence was disgusting. To no surprise, the Black Caucus was far more concerned with destroying Confederate monuments and playing to constituents than with the soaring murder rates among Black youths in Chicago and Baltimore.

The overall goal was accomplished as the usual vitriolic Trump demonization ascended to a new crescendo, and for good measure included questioning the state of his sanity. Among other things, they catalyzed a mania that emboldened thugs and imbeciles to destroy historic Confederate monuments across America and their handy work began with gusto. The mania rapidly escalated to reckless talk of blowing up buildings, mountains, and everything else associated with the Confederacy and America’s White founding fathers. Even a bust of Lincoln was vandalized and Dolly Parton’s Confederate themed dinner theatre is in the cross hairs.

Destroying the Confederacy’s Remnants: These hypocrites correctly posited that the Confederacy and everything associated with it are reminiscent of a terrible, regrettable period of ethnic discrimination in American history. However, their mantra of destroying everything associated with the Confederacy to revise the history of discrimination against Blacks and make that period magically disappear as if it never existed is beyond imbecilic. The obvious implications of their position are that self-imposed ‘White guilt’ will be assuaged; Blacks will be forever appeased, and everyone will unite happily singing Kumbaya.

Human nature and life, however, are neither that simple nor do they operate in that manner. This absurdity takes delusion to a new high; be assured that the balloon politically correct idiots filled with stupefied air will burst much sooner than later. When that occurs and normalcy returns they will find that nothing has changed, even if everything associated with the Confederacy had been eradicated from American history.

The Height of Hypocrisy: The appalling predictable hypocrisy of the Trump haters relative to race and the Confederacy is abundantly clear and begs this simple question: Why the sudden feigned outrage and demand for destroying historic Confederate monuments to eradicate the injustice of slavery in August 2017? Particularly since the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution abolishing it was ratified 151 years ago on December 6, 1865. Furthermore, most of the monuments have stood for more than 50 years without a peep being uttered. Apparently, these conscientious politically correct hypocrites simultaneously found a new moral high ground, experienced a miraculous epiphany and suddenly considered Confederate monuments to be offensive.

Playing the Race Card: It should be abundantly clear that race underpinned the animus towards Trump emanating from Charlottesville. Specifically, the following popular narrative emerged with the associated rhetoric. The Alt-Right is comprised of radical White racists that hate Blacks and Jews; it then ipso facto condones slavery and the Holocaust, respectively associated with the Confederacy and Nazi Germany. Trump’s failure to adequately condemn that group of thugs evinced his insensitivity towards racism, particularly as it relates to Blacks. Ergo, Trump’s attitude towards race is indistinguishable from that of the Alt-Right thugs and he is a White Supremacist who must be damned. Based on prevailing rhetoric and this narrative, the logical damnation would include destroying all Confederate and Nazi monuments.

To my knowledge there are not any monuments to Hitler, Goebbels or other high ranking members of the Third Reich in America, so destroying them is moot. However, Trump’s damnation can be imparted simultaneously with avenging the painful discriminatory past by destroying all monuments associated with the Confederacy and our country’s White founding fathers.

America’s Future Relative to Eradicating Her Heritage: The inflammatory racial rhetoric in the aftermath of Charlottesville that catalyzed the removal and destruction of Confederate monuments comprising an important part of America’s rich history was repugnant to common decency under any circumstances. It also set a very dangerous precedent by opening the door to fools attempting to revise the history of ethnic discrimination against other groups. America is a nation of immigrants and discrimination against immigrants. If revising the history of discrimination against Blacks is encouraged as set forth herein, it will only be a matter of time until it occurs with another ethnic group being involved. As this continues America’s rich heritage, traditions, culture, and values will be eroded and ultimately eradicated.

People that love America must stand up against this insanity and future attempts to revise any aspect of her history. Obama created America’s greatest racial divide in modern times and it remains as such. More hatred, chaos and systemic disruption related to ethnicity are neither needed nor healthy.

U. S. Senate Stands With Antifa: On September 6, 2017, a bipartisan resolution introduced in the Senate condemned ‘white Nationalists, white supremacists, the Klu Klux Klan, neo-Nazis, and other hate groups’ for their role in the violence at Charlottesville. Antifa and BLM, whose sole missions are to stifle free speech through vicious brutality were not mentioned. The resolution takes hypocritical appeasement to a new low and is tantamount to condoning these organizations of savages stifling free speech, particularly with violence. This is not surprising, however, as many of the senators were Obama’s sycophants that eagerly supported his endless efforts to erode the First Amendment and fundamentally transform America. It is abundantly clear that they are continuing in his stead.

  1. Excellent article!! Have you read “The Big Lie,” by Dinesh D’Souza? If not, I highly recommend it.

    In order to understand race relations in the USA, we must never forget the following facts:

    First, before the founding of America–and before William Wilberforce in England, slavery was and always had been a big part of life for virtually every society and every people since the beginning of human history.

    Second, the American Founders and Framers, for the most part, knew that the “institution” of slavery was wrong (evil). They wrote into the Constitution a plan to begin its demise [For some explanation, please see http://www.renewamerica.com/columns/weaver/110626%5D.

    Third, the Republican Party was established for basically one purpose–to end slavery in the United States of America.

    Fourth, it was Southern Democrats who seceded from the Union. It was the Democratic Party that formed the Ku Klux Klan, lynched Blacks, enacted policies of segregation and Jim Crow laws, and tried to keep Blacks from voting or running for office. It was Democrats, primarily, who voted against the Civil Rights Acts.

    Finally, Democrats (“Progressives”) today use the Saul Alinsky tactic of “projection” (or, transference, as D’Souza calls it). In other words, they accuse their enemies of doing the evil things that they do, or have done in the past, themselves. This lie is told to the public over and over again in media, academia, literature and pop culture so much that most people now believe it is conservatives who are white supremacists, racists, bigots, etc.; when it has been Democrats–and “Progressives”–all along.

  2. I was raised on Confederate pride and lost many family members in war. We had no slaves…we fought for states rights, like most and were always out numbered but won many battles and love Robert E Lee who gave up his home to fight for his home state. But the socialist/commies plan is to take over American with jaded cultural destroyers…I will never give up my Southern Heritage, never!

  3. The damage and death I blame on the mayor and the ones that organize there presents in Charlotte , the same groups went to Boston and any violence was quickly stoped by the police and they was arrested on the spot ! Freedom of speech , a march or protest doesn’t mean a free for all ! Dr Martin Luther King ( a Republican) had many marches with no violence , the reason to me was a liberated way to attempt to get Americans to be against Trump !

    • Agreed!! The whole thing was a setup! The violence wouldn’t have happened if the mayor wouldn’t have told the police to stand down & if they would have let the group that was trying to leave behind the police 👮 leave that way! They were told they had to go out the way they came in which caused the confrontation with Antifa who threw pee, poo and pepper spray on them – the dreaded P’s!! This is all $25 per hour paid protesters by Soros! ENOUGH!!

  4. Beautifully well thought out piece Chris. Unfortunately our young generation are ignorant to the significance and freedom our constitution offers all of us. Hatred seems to give them a false sense of purpose and ignorance to the real truth is easy. Even so called role models in our schools and govt have failed us. Keep your narrative going!

  5. First things first. We need to correct the false pretense that somehow white supremacy is a right wing ideology. The same with neo-nazi. Both are entities of the left. Those saying they are ANTIFA or antifascism are the fascists. Its the left using Alinsky doctrine. To defeat these false ideologues we have to counter the lies with constant truths.

  6. Loved your article Chris! Thank you for such a well written piece with all the FACTS included! Someday America will hang its head in shame that this was allowed to happen without even a fight from our citizens for OUR history! It pretty much is saying that OUR COUNTRY’S HISTORY HAS BEEN A LIE! Nothing is further from the truth! Our American history HAPPENED! It is REAL! It is what formed our country into the greatest nation in the world! In the blink of an eye a handful of Trump haters erased our history like it never happened! But we all KNOW it did! They can take all the statues & monuments down but true Americans will always know THE TRUTH! OUR HISTORY CAN NOT BE ERASED FROM REAL PATRIOTS HEARTS! This was truly a sin against all Americans and someday everyone will know what they did! They may have broken down the statues but WE, the people will never be broken! We are too strong to let that affect who we are and what brought us to this! After 8 long years of Barry dividing our country and taking us back 50 years we are witnessing the after effects of his Anti-American Presidency. His legacy will be the division he brought back! The most shameful “legacy” I have ever witnessed! Any statue or museum of him will someday be dismantled because we know he was behind all of this nightmare! Again, thank you for the enlightenment! God Bless you Chris!

    • Thanks for taking the time to write a well-considered astute comment. America’s decline began when fools elected Obama without vetting him and accelerated throughout his disastrous presidency thanks to overwhelming support of Congressional sycophants from both parties.

  7. Thank you for such an excellent article on the HATE we are up against in today’s society. I put on my Armor of God each day because I know half the people out there want me dead. I pray for the haters, it’s the best thing I can do in the face of travesty. When GOD is with me, who can be against me? Beware the Devil is on the prowl.

  8. Thank you for your thoughts. Good article. It seems as though this culture war was raging as I forged through elementary and high school. We have been silent and accepting for far too long. ( We=Conservatives)

  9. Thank you Chris. What I have been worrying about all along. Please keep blogging & writing the truth’s! Our children
    actually talk about this because they know that our family is all about helping those in need but understand objectively
    this is not what we liberal conservatives know to be true. Just pushing me more towards the Alt Right because
    the leftist do nothing but hate and push the God Blessed Nation that my families worked so hard for (even changing their names, loss of lives fighting for the wrong cause) to build this country..and helping other’s (no matter what) to make it equal. Now it is being used against those that actually cared…..You are correct. Her is another thought. Those that have given back to make those less fortunate or not equal will not be the ones that can help them in the future. It may be done then when dictatorship or their lives rule…3rd generation-not the guy.. Rocket man wins & we all die or be ruled. Trump has been in the wings for many years, chose not to jump in to politics but knew the West Pointer’s, politicians all the same… He knows what the hell is best for America …. Not the NWO-in fact look who well they are doing … Thank you Chris. You have eloquently said what I knew in my heart to be true.

  10. Thank you for writing what so many of us feel, but can’t do so, as eloquently.
    If a tree falls in the forest, and there’s no one there to see it, will they still blame President Trump? lol
    I am so disgusted with seeing Hillary Clinton still fighting the results of the election. The Left, would rather see America fail, than Trump succeed.
    We are Americans first, but the radical left sees any conservative as the enemy.
    Trump is the only candidate who could beat Clinton, and is the only hope we have to swing America back to her greatness. Read the accomplishments of President Trump so far. Pretty amazing. And he is doing this in spite of daily opposition & petty media attacks.

  11. Excellent post. I was checking continuously this blog and I’m
    impressed! Extremely useful information specially the last part 🙂 I care for such information much.
    I was looking for this certain information for a very long time.
    Thank you and good luck.
