"Dear Mother: We Had to Turn Back. Resistance Was Too Strong."


The portly defender of slavery seemed to be a little dejected. He would have been an anomaly, anyway. The Confederate Army was pretty shitty at logistics. Most of their soldiers were ill-fed and ill clothed.

Anyway, the guesstimates seem to be that less than a hundred Nazis and their fellow-travelers showed up on Boston today for their rally. The number of counter-protesters was somewhere between 20,000 and 40,000.

If people would ignore the "Nazis" they'd go away fairly quickly, I think.

Most are just attention hounds.

My inlaws had it on Facebook. Mainly on the order of look at that polite man minding his own business while being harassed by that overwrought woman.

Hope the young lady gets a gig on the talk shows...

Ed Baptist, I corrected your sentence:

"My inlaws had it on Facebook. Mainly on the order of look at that (perplexed white supremacist holding the flag of treason) while being (told he's racist by that) woman."

Hey! I have a nifty idea! Let's tear down ALL the statues that anyone doesn't like and then we can burn all the history books we don't like. This is the road that's being applauded, and it ends with bonfires.

No, John, that's simply a fallacy of inconsistence. You are taking the post Civil War, Jim Crow and Civil Rights era Southern white power establishment argument and changing the subject. Your argument suffers from placing personal opinion ("that anyone doesn't like") rather than an objective reality (that was erected in a manner that was clearly calculated to endorse or memorialize white supremacy) for the genesis of the activity. Look to Germany, see how downtrodden, unfree and oppressed they are because they cannot use Nazi symbols, words and acts?

TTB, you ought to drop a link when you mention things like that.

I changed my mind. I've posted a lot of pictures mocking the NAZIs, pointing to their obvious lack of superiority: from fat asses and melatonin deficiencies to flat feet and flatulence (they stink), but there's something about the look on that kid's face that as a grandfather keeps me from mocking him. He is just a kid, doubtfully more than fifteen. He knows he's fucked: been on tv, dressed up in a (literally) little toy soldier suit with his little toy soldier flag in the middle of Boston freaking Mass. He's never gonna get laid.

I've seen that look on a fifteen year old grandson's face, the some seriously pissed off at parents look, stuck doing something he doesn't necessarily want to do.

CenterPuke88, good reply. In this country, not Germany, I am easily appalled at the sheer lack of understanding of history, especially American. I don't see an "objective reality" in the calls to destroy these monuments. I Hate the idea of shutting down public speech I don't like. I hate the idea of creating an environment where people are afraid to (peacefully) express their political views. If, the idea that someone holding a Confederate flag is a micro aggression, then the shown response ( not in the photo, but in the fact that the BPD had to have the 'rally-ers ' leave in closed trucks) is a macro aggression. I wish people would think, "If this action is alright to do to these people, is it alright if they do it to me?"

I guess I really don't know anybody, including myself, who shows objectivity in their beliefs.

It turns out that he's a senior from a Pensicola Christian College who was expelled for his pains.

Hardly a 15 year old who doesn't really know what he's doing.
