"Well, Govan, if we must die, let us die like men."General Patrick R. Cleburne
Will removing Confederate flags, monuments, and names promote social peace or racial healing? It is more likely to cause increased social strife, bitterness, and economic, and political turmoil. If there is going to be any healing, it must be based on the truth rather than ignorant and slanderous narratives of Civil War history. But the truth has been largely suppressed, and that has led to a situation where even conservatives on Fox News and popular radio shows repeat false Civil War narratives that are not helpful to public understanding or healing. Truth is the only sound basis for unity, hence we need to shatter some of the historical myths of the Civil War and slavery. The Left is making a full-court press to divide us and destroy our country with false narratives. Let us brace ourselves with the truth.
How long would a peace based on suppression of a people’s cherished heritage last? How long would a peace built upon suppressing the memory, valor, and virtue of the revered forebears of a great number of the Southern people last? What could possibly be a surer cause of immense strife, bitterness, and economic and political turmoil? Does anyone outside of a madhouse believe that peace and prosperity can be achieved by discarding the heritage of a numerous people to gain the political favor of another? It is more likely to shatter all hope of peace. Can a society set itself against tolerance and mutual respect and have peace? No fair-minded person can accept such corrupt reasoning.
