Of "Diversity" and "Context"

From NBC News:

'Meet The Black Woman Reclaiming the Narrative of the Civil War'


"RICHMOND, Va. — On a hot July morning, Christy Coleman recounts the tales of hundreds of slaves who worked at the Tredegar Iron Works, a foundry located along the James River and a national landmark where weapons of the Confederacy were made during the Civil War. As she describes the burning of Richmond, Coleman explains how the ironworks survived and represents a tangible part of American history.

Contemplative, she looks around the 9-acre property. A natural born storyteller, she is animated as she details complexities of Civil War history that took place where she stands.

“History is all around us, we are living in the midst of our history, the question is how do we choose to navigate it?” said Coleman, who became the president of the American Civil War Center at Historic Tredegar in 2008."

So you probably figured out where this story was going when Coleman is quoted asking how to "navigate" history.  

NBC continues by reporting:

"The museum has three locations: Historic Tredegar, the White House and Museum of Confederacy, and the Museum of the Confederacy in Appomattox, Virginia. It is the first museum to offer the point of view of not only the Union and Confederacy, but also also that of the millions of enslaved persons, free and unfreed, that were involved in the war."

Before they were consolidated under the umbrella of the "American Civil War Center" the Tredegar Iron Works ,Confederate White House, the Museum of the Confederacy were all separate entities dedicated to the preservation of Confederate history and heritage.

While Coleman stated that she eased the fears of those who suspected she would use her role to "bash" the Confederacy by saying "no", the further the reader delves into the article the more clear it becomes.

She states that:

“Diversity simply means there are new questions that are being asked. That in and of itself is invaluable,” Coleman said. “You can’t say you’re being diverse if you have everybody that thinks the same thing regardless of what they look like. That’s not diversity, that’s just shading.”



One could , quite easily, surmise that what Coleman is really saying the history is not "dark enough". Coleman herself apparently believes that Confederate history is not sexually liberating enough as she is quoted by NBC stating:

"Coleman wants to give visitors the chance to the understand the war from all sides and keep the conversation open on others who were impacted, including members of the LGBTQ community and women. She says black people avoided talking about the Civil War for a long time because the narrative of the war was taken away from blacks."

Taking away the narrative from blacks? What? We have all been (falsely) taught that the only reason for the war was slavery, that the war was a moral struggle. The real reason for the war (according to Lincoln himself) was not slavery but taxes.

None of this is surprising considering the fact that Coleman was president and CEO of Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit, was appointed by Richmond, Virginia Mayor Levar Stoney to a commission to decide what to do with the City's "Monument Ave." (which wants to remove the statue of President of the Confederacy Jefferson Davis ) and was appointed by Virginia Governor ( and Clinton operative) Terry Mcauliffe to the Governor’s Advisory Council on Furnishing and Interpreting the Executive Mansion.

According to NPR:

"Just weeks before last year's "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Va., Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney announced a new commission to recommend "how to best tell the real story" of the Confederate-era and other statues on Monument Avenue, a tree-lined street known as one of the city's tourist destinations.

Then the white nationalists gathered in Charlottesville, some 70 miles away. They rallied around a statue of Robert E. Lee that had been slated for removal during an August weekend that turned violent.

The next week, Stoney added to the Richmond group's charge: The commission would examine the possible removal or relocation of monuments."

Then the white nationalists gathered...

NPR is trying to portray the recommendation for the removal of the Jefferson Davis Monument in Richmond by the committee (appointed by Stoney which included Coleman) was because of "white nationalists) when in fact it was a plan that was well in the making before the events of Charlottesville , Virginia on August 11-12, 2017.

According to Professor James Fetzer the Charlottesville events were "political theater" in three acts. Fetzer writes:

Act I: A torch-lit protest around the statue of Thomas Jefferson on the campus of the University of Virginia, designed to draw the attention of the nation for the events the following day;

Act II: Local police stand down so VA State Police and National Guard could channel peaceful protesters of the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee into a violent confrontation with Antifa and Black Lives Matter;

Act III: At an intersection several blocks away, the actors were set and the vehicles in place to film dramatic—and carefully contrived—video footage.

You might be wondering what the lesson of this article is. For starters in regard to the total rewriting of history in Virginia (and across the South):

Navigate- means to divert individuals away from the truth.

Context- means to rewrite your history and demean your ancestors.

Diversity- means to accomplish an agenda by diverting people away from the truth in a manner which is less likely to "offend" those of the "politically-correct" faith (I say faith because liberalism is a religion to those who practice it).

Do you really think all of this has been one big coincidence?  Mayor Stoney's creation of a commission to decide what shall be done with the Confederate monuments in Richmond? The appointment of Coleman who was president and CEO of an African-American History Museum in Detroit? Using the Charlottesville riot as an excuse to try and remove the monument of Davis in Richmond? The evidence that suggests that Charlottesville was a "set up" made to make the defenders of Lee's monument look like the bad guys while giving free reign to militant leftists like Antifa? Clinton operative Governor Terry Mcauliffe's declaration of a "state of emergency" before any violence transpired and McAuliffe's previous affiliation with Coleman?

None of this is a coincidence. It was all pre-arranged in an effort to demonize the history of the Confederacy. Our Confederate heritage stands for everything the globalist hate, independence, sovereignty , states rights and freedom. if these principles are allowed to exist it is impossible for the "one worlders" to accomplish their goals.

Radio host John B. Wells has often mentioned that the country of South Africa is a testing grounds for what communists plan for America and I believe that the destruction of our history, heritage and historical monuments is only the beginning.

Monuments Off Mountains

The Atlanta Journal- Constitution newspaper is reporting:

"Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams called for the removal of the giant carving that depicts three Confederate war leaders on the face of state-owned Stone Mountain, saying it "remains a blight on our state and should be removed."

Abrams campaign website states:
"Stacey knows our beginnings do not have to dictate who we will become. She has a boundless belief in Georgians’ capacity to prosper; and she has the courage, commitment to service, and experience to make this vision a reality"

It's a feel-good all inclusive moderate message designed to appeal to a broad spectrum of Georgia voters but it is not a difficult endeavor determining what vision she has in mind.
A recently published news story reveals the reality of Abrams' vision and confirms that she has the experience working in the field.
The New York Times is reporting:

"At a protest on the steps of the Georgia Capitol …

Disgraced General Tosses Portrait of Robert E. Lee (Because his wife told him to )

On November 21, 2018 the Washington Post published an article written by Retired U.S. General Stanley McChrystal entitled 'Good Riddance: Americans need to set aside icons like Robert E. Lee to live up to our potential'.

The article contains a picture of a (digitally) vandalized portrait of General Robert E. Lee, which one can only assume, given the history of the Washington Post, is not only an approval of past attacks on Confederate monuments but also a wink and a nod to future attacks as well.
In the article McChrystal admits that a portrait of General Robert E. Lee hung on his wall, wherever he went , for over 34 years and that the portrait was given to him as a gift from his wife, who coincidentally is the one who told him to take it down.
The reason? McChrystal states:
"In the summer of 2017, my wife, Annie, urged me to take down the picture. Disgusted by the images of hate and white supremacy that had descended on Charlottesville in the form of angry, torch-bearin…

Oklahoma Veteran Arrested for Defending Himself Against Alleged Meth- Maker

On the evening of April 14, 2014 Edwin Turlington, a U.S. Army Veteran and Private Investigator who lives in Delaware County, Oklahoma noticed two men starting a fire on adjacent property owned by his brother. Ed tells me, "When I purchased the property it was land locked so my brother purchased the property next to it so I would not have to get an easement."

The incident has placed Mr. Turlington in a four year legal battle and facing a 10 year sentence if convicted.
Mr. Turlington states he:

"Found three strangers, including convicted drug dealer Darrell Philpott cooking Meth on land his brother recently contracted for and already acquired the right to possess. Relying on his law enforcement training and experience, Ed realized the men had taken the license plates off their truck, which is a significant indicator they were going out into the community with bad intentions. Ed executed a citizen's arrest in accordance with Oklahoma statutes. Rather than submit to t…
