Progressivism Gotta Progress. I guess.
So it will no longer be possible to purchase a Confederate battle flag: At Gettysburg National Military Park. Right: Makes perfect sense.
And then Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell, no panderer he, bravely proposes having a statue of Jefferson Davis pulled down from the rotunda of the Kentucky Capitol building. Because … well, it’s just too obvious to need explanation.
Which, by perfect logic, has caused some righteous soul at CNN to call for the destruction of the Jefferson Memorial in Mordor-by-the-Potomac. Jefferson Davis = Thomas Jefferson: Hah! The wily Virginian thought he could sneak that by us, didn’t he? But we know he was involved. What did he know and when did he know it? Never mind: Out with him!
Decency compels me to declare that there are grassy knolls not yet climbed in this struggle toward whatever the hell we’re doing here. Did you know jazz trumpeter Miles Davis – clearly related to the notorious mass murderer Jefferson Davis – was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? And that a Miles Davis Memorial is being erected even as we speak? Can this vile injustice be allowed to go on? Rise with me, sistren and brethren, to pull down these abominations! March on to Fundamental Transformation!
