Diana West just published another brilliant essay on the coming removal of all remnants of American History which will include flags, monuments, statues, portraits and other memorabilia of America’s War Between The States. Personally, I think we’re only seeing the beginning of the destruction of our historical mementos. More on that later on down the page. The latest such vestige to come under attack is the statue of Robert E. Lee at Lee Park in Dallas, Texas.
Diana asks a question:
If the Monsters of History Memento Destruction List is to be all-inclusive and accurate, should not one man in particular be included among those who committed immense crimes against Freedom and Humanity? She is referring to Franklin Delano Roosevelt. It helps the reader to understand what Ms. West is pointing out if the reader has carefully studied the documented incontrovertible facts laid out for the world to see in her jaw-dropping book, American Betrayal: The Secret Assault On Our Nation’s Character. Without knowledge of this material, it is difficult for one to grasp the gravity of the crimes Roosevelt committed. Commit them he did. I’ve read the book carefully – two times. Today, Diana writes in part:
…One of FDR’s little-known legacies is the brisk, state-to-state trade in human beings that flourished after World War II. I refer to the period in which victorious Allies “repurposed” many of their POWs — hundreds of thousands of Germans, some Japanese, also nearly one million anti-Communist Russians — as “human reparations,” or slave laborers (or firing squad targets), mainly for the Soviet Union, but also for France, Britain and other allies. The US Army put half a million to work in Europe by July 1945, as John Dietrich notes in his book, The Morgenthau Plan: Soviet Influence on American Foreign Policy…
…In light of all the recent attention to slavery in 19th-century-America, it is worth underscoring that this Allied postwar policy was a 20th-century update. As president, the responsible American updater-in-chief was FDR, widely regarded as a demi-god on the Left and most of what passes for the Right. As prime minister, Churchill was FDR’s counterpart. As blood-drenched dictator, Stalin was FDR and Churchill’s … “Uncle Joe.” (To the uninitiated, I apologize for the sudden occurrence of heavy static over “Good War” clarity. Here’s help.)
So, about Lee — what do we do with the FDR Memorial to forced labor & repatriation?
Diana also points out that the heads of state guest list for President Obama’s 2014 State Dinner, co-hosted by the First Lady, included 13 of the top 25 slavery-practicing nations in the world. You can read Diana’s complete essay by clicking here.
War is a terrible thing. Sometimes the aftermath is more horrifying in human suffering than the actual armed conflict.
The American left’s movement to eradicate all existence of Civil War monuments as remnants of inferred support for the evils of human slavery is just beginning. I will not be at all surprised to see the forces now at work eventually press ahead and ultimately demand the complete destruction of the Washington Monument and The Jefferson Memorial in Washington, D.C., and all related portraits, documents, historical books and other memorabilia related to them – because Washington and Jefferson owned slaves. That demolition is going to create one huge pile of stone masonry rubble to haul away to history’s landfill. And the burning of the portraits, books, and historical papers will provide for one huge bonfire.
And when that happens, what can we deduce will be the only thing left to do with the Constitution?
Think it’s not coming? We’ll see. We’ll see.
