What’s a little vandalism between friends?

He was once the chief law enforcement officer for our state.  Now he’s our governor.  and HERE he is on Twitter:

Soooooo — endorsing mob violence now, are we?  (In case you’ve had your head in the ground for the last 24 hours, a bunch of Roy Cooper voters did THIS in Durham.).

We can complain about an unwashed “artist” dropping a crucifix in a jar of pee and getting a government grant for it.  We BIGOTS, we’re told, just need to shut up and deal with it.  (*We need to develop an appreciation for art.*) 

Encouraging people — especially those nutcases in Durham — to go out in force on the streets to take matters into their own hands is a dangerous, dangerous thing. The recently former chief law enforcement officer of the state should KNOW BETTER.

Erasing history — whether it’s’ Nazis burning books or ISIS destroying ancient Christian artifacts in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan — is a go-to move for fanatical authoritarians. Leftists are famous for blaming other people for the failure of their policies.  High unemployment and crime? Poor economy? *It’s all the fault of The Confederate States of America.*

The biggest threat to our civilization is NOT a few wackos hiding out in the woods wearing white hoods or kooks in Durham waving commie flags.  It’s authoritarianism.  People with power and influence wanting to snatch your freedoms, and to punch you in the face if you dare to disagree with them.

    Since I can I’m going to say this. My ass is hot about the episode in Durham!!!!! It’s going to be hotter if the Governor does not enforce the law.

    Was there a stand down order given? If so, by whom?
    Tear gas and tasers could have prevented this assault on American history. Not wise to erase history. Not wise not to enforce the law either.

    Cooper has now gone farther and fallen off of the extreme left end of the spectrum. He is agreeing with the violent leftists of Antifa and BLM that Confederate monuments should be taken down. He is taking an anti-history position as extreme and very similar to the Taliban, ISIS, the Nazi bookburners, and the communists. This is not so surprising in that totalitarian George Soros, who admitted being a Naxi collaborator in his youth in Hungary, is heavily bankrolling Antifa and BLM and he also heavily financed the election of Roy Cooper, both with the maximum direct contribution and with lots of dark money as well. Cooper is Soros’ water boy.

    The Washington Times has a good article on the totalitarian path this is on: , http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/aug/15/confederate-statues-today-book-burnings-tomorrow/

    Soon Comrade Cooper will be agreeing with Al Sharpton that the Jefferson Memorial should be taken down.

    But to answer Comrade Cooper’s ignorant rant about the War Between the States being about slavery, a great analysis about what the war was really about comes from British political philosopher Lord Acton, best known for his famour quote that “power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely,” who wrote in a letter to General Robert E. Lee in November 1866:

    ”I saw in State Rights the only availing check upon the absolutism of the sovereign will, and secession filled me with hope, not as the destruction but as the redemption of Democracy. The institutions of your Republic [the USA] have not exercised on the old world the salutary and liberating influence which ought to have belonged to them, by reason of those defects and abuses of principle which the Confederate Constitution was expressly and wisely calculated to remedy. I believed that the example of that great Reform would have blessed all the races of mankind by establishing true freedom purged of the native dangers and disorders of Republics. Therefore I deemed that you were fighting the battles of our liberty, our progress, and our civilization; and I mourn for the stake which was lost at Richmond more deeply than I rejoice over that which was saved at Waterloo.” – Lord Acton

      Ol’ Roy is just beginning to pay back the 90,000 “found” votes that appeared in the Derm’ area. I wonder how many of the paid protesters in attendance were helping fill in fake ballots on election day.

      I like your portion on Acton. While yes, slavery may have been the main catalyst of the war the concept of our democracy was destroyed at the same time. The subjugation of the states to the Federal is what has led us to this point, and there will be even worse consequences in the future if we do not step up to get rid of these evil forces in our country. We are making the first steps to totalitarianism with the events that are brewing.

        North Carolina’s secession documents do not mention slavery at all. Our secession convention met in early 1861 and the majority sided with the position of the old Whigs led by Zeb Vance to reject secession. It was only after Lincoln demanded troops to invade our neighbors that Governor Ellis told Lincoln ”you will get no troops from North Carolina” and called the secession convention back into session. This time, in reaction to Lincoln’s aggression against our fellow southern states, the convention voted unanimously to secede. Slavery was NOT the issue that drove secession in North Carolina.

        Most today also ignore the fact that the north’s hands were hardly clean on slavery. In March 1861, the US Congress, controlled by the north and by Republicans, passed by supermajority and submitted to the states for ratification a proposed amendment to the US Conatitution that enshrined slavery in the Constitution and would have made it impossible to abolish on a national level. Lincoln specifically endorsed that proposed pro-slavery Constitutional amendment in his first Inaugural Address.

        Interestingly, General Sherman was one of the early people who pushed back on the early postwar revisionist history that claimed the war was about slavery. Sherman emphatically said that it was not about slavery but if it had been, he would have fought for the south.

          All true. In my extensive readings on the war, other than the deliberations by Lincoln and Congress after the war had started, I primarily see the motives of the North and the generals as to keep the Union intact. During negotiations to end the war, the leaders primarily focused on preserving the Union rather than a cease fire with separate nations. Emancipation was only done for political expedience so that they could recruit blacks to the cause and hopefully create chaos in the South.

            One of the reasons for the change in focus from ”preserve the union” was that the Brits laughed at it. How, they chortled, can a country that owes it existence to seceding from the British Empire, possibly complain about someone seceding from them?

            Another reason was the north thought it helped them with foreign policy. They belatedly realized just how close they had come to the UK getting in the war on the side of the south in late 1861 over the Trent Affair. British intervention would have quickly and decisively won the war for the south.

    Cooper says we should “allow removal of Confederate statues, lest protesters get hurt pulling them down.” This guy has gone off the rails.

    Cooper has clearly gone off the rails. But where is the Republican response to this dangerous nonsense? Where are our leaders? I live in Durham and we want to know where the GOP is? Is Trump the only Republican who will stand up to these crazed mobs? Where are our NC GOP leaders?

      I am not sure the GOP really exists in Derm. You may want to get out as soon as possible as it seems to be a lost cause over there.

    I wonder if Taliban Roy, our scoflaw governor, will also promote removal of statues of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson as some radical black leaders are now calling for. Al Sharpton even wants to tear down the Jefferson Memorial in Washington.

    I guess we will have to keep our fingers crossed that Antifa does not go just outside Charlottesville and burn down Monticello.

    There is a statue directly across from the North Carolina legislative building that I would like to pull down. It sits in front of the Natural History Museum. It is a statue of a woman who has the blood of millions of people on her hands. It is a statue honoring murderess Rachel Carson. It needs to come down.

      This is true. The fake news DDT hysteria is a true leftist cause, hits all the buttons of the mis-guided environmental movement.

    I am just wondering why no Republican in the state has criticized the actions of the leftwing crazed mob in Durham? Has the GOP died in this state? Now the mob has even vandalized Duke Chapel. Still no comment from any Republican? Has the GOP dissolved itself without telling anyone?
