Ignorance alone is a sad thing, but ignorance being sanctimoniously glorified is disgusting and disturbing. ~ Barb McCutchen
H.L. Mencken, Will Rogers, Mark Twain – satirical humorous writers in the past would see the delicious irony in a school board & superintendent so ignorant and ill/mis-informed regarding history that they would equate a symbol of liberty/independence with one of slavery/bondage. Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, that appears to be the case in the Fort Smith School Superintendent & School Board’s desire to remove/replace Southside High School’s 50+ year Rebel Mascot & all things Dixie. There’s never even been a protest of any size whatever of which I am aware.
Here we have the paragons of educational excellence, leaders of scholarly endeavors, who don’t hesitate to meet in secret, falling immediately into the trap set by the Cultural Marxist Political Correctness tactic of divisiveness=-pit one race against another in order to damage/destroy the white founding stock, i.e. Western Civilization (the ultimate goal). Do they even have a clue? Doubtful, likely just a knee-jerk response to be compliant with the politically correct “offense” du jour.
The goal is being accomplished by using the fictitious Union victors’ version of what happened and why in War of Northern Aggressiona perfect conduit to induce PC “white guilt”. The perpetrators knew most folks are too lazy to seek the truth, especially if it is the opposite of what they have been taught by teachers they trust, who themselves only know what is in the “official” textbooks. A perfect setup for manipulation & subjugation.
Which brings us to the questions…does the School Board./Superintendent know the truth & trying to hide it for nefarious reasons, or they’ve swallowed the tales told by government schools, or don’t really want to acknowledge the truth, or just arrogant defiance of inconvenient truths & desire to punish dissenters? It was not a Civil war, it was a war for independence from a tyrannical government.
In a rational honest world these people would be laughing stocks and expelled from any authority over the education process…but alas we live in a pussified age where no one is the be “offended” (real or imagined), that is no one except those who do not accept government as god, who do not believe everything it does is right, much less moral or rational, especially if they are white.
There is little doubt how this frontal attack on all things Dixie/Confederate will go. The insidious, pious PC Kool-Aid has been consumed in huge quantities by government worshipers and parasites who are feeling their oats (empowered)……besides there’s money to be generated & looted! The bloated gloat is impossible to resist by too many.
The best of our Founders envisioned an enlightened, knowledgeable citizenry who cherished individual rights and responsibilities; unfortunately what they have gotten is an intellectually lazy mass of malleable automatons who feed at the government propaganda & money trough.
Hence, it will probably be goodbye to heritage of honor, independence, & courage & hello to arrogant pandering cowardice and perpetuated ignorance.
“There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, And producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, Because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution.” ~ Aldous Huxley’s lecture to The California Medical School in San Francisco in 1961
