No statue of limitations (pun intended)

‘Who is boining, who is boining … effigies’ 

 Creedence Clearwater Revival

As the Russians said during the last years of communism, “Never before has our history been so unpredictable.”

If we know this city’s social justice warriors (and we do, although not in a biblical sense), the nihilists are at this moment arguing which statue requires a good-old toppling here in the Autonomous Zone of Madison WI. To Antifa and their adherents, smashing the state starts with a statue. (So there’s your alliteration for the day.)

Whiskey for my men

It’s one thing to take down statues glorifying Confederate generals. Richmond Va. is fighting the courts to remove General Bobby Lee and the horse he road in on. But the North is finding it tough to find sufficient slavers. Frustrated George Floyd protesters in Philadelphia whacked an abolitionist.

Col. Hans Christian Heg — Wisconsin’s unknown Norwegian — has already been defaced. Never mind that he died in the Civil War against slavery. The Madison mob also smeared Miss Forward. Why? Probably because she was there and they had paint. 

Portland toppled George Washington, who freed the slaves. Well, his slaves, anyway. And saw that they got an education. Universities don’t teach history any more, they teach grievance. (Memo to Tommy T.)

San Francisco knocked U.S. Grant off his high horse. (General Grant defeated the confederacy and ended slavery. President Grant crushed the KKK and started schools for the newly freed slaves.) Which is more than Brandi Grayson or M. Adams ever did. More here.

Miss Forward vandalized

Goodbye, Columbus Ohio

Again in San Francisco, city fathers (oops — mothers, too) removed a statue of Christopher Columbus from Coit Tower before protesters could throw it in the Bay. Cristoforo Colombo may have sailed the ocean blue but now he’s going to get good and wet! Statue of Father Junipero Serra (who pretty much founded the town) is gone, too. Whatever happened to Que Serra, serra?

Columbus Ohio is removing its statue of guess who in favor of guess what? (The “what” is “Diversity and Inclusion.”)


Strange that diversity and inclusion require intolerance and destruction!


The American Taliban is especially frustrated in Buffalo N.Y. Best they could do was vandalize the Our Lady of Fatima shrine. (“Cured lots of people, but the good, they die young.) More history: The KKK hated Catholics, too.

No gravestone, monument, marker, or plinth is safe from the judgment of those who have achieved — like Carl Spackler in Caddyshack — Total Consciousness. Gunga galunga…gunga, gunga-lagunga.

Back here in the Automaton’s zone (did we spell that correctly?), the City of Madison WI has already removed the original granite grave marker from the northernmost cemetery of Confederate prisoners of war. For that is all it was — 140 names and the simple inscription:

“Erected in loving memory by United Daughters of the Confederacy to Alice Whiting Waterman and ‘her boys.’”

This ‘Madison’ guy …

Named slave ownerThe lady in question was a local woman who cared for the burial grounds, eventually enlisting the help of veteran soldiers from the Union cause — including Gov. Lucius Fairchild, who lost an arm at Gettysburg. (“Madison rewrites history.”) No “unsung heroes.” No “fought with valor.” Just 140 names to supplant the second generation of weathered out wooden markers. (The individual grave markers that can be seen today came later.)

Then again, after whom is our fair city named? Sure, he wrote the U.S. Constitution and served as President. But he never did Massah Madison free his slaves. A relative bragged, according to one biography, that it had been many a year since a slave was flogged at Monticello. 

Then there are all those streets named after the Founders, white men like the Pinckneys of S. Carolina and Pierce Butler (Rhett’s old man?) … Don’t the Progressives give a damn?!

Blaska’s Bottom LineStill, in all, Black Lives Matter, Antifa, Freedom Inc., and the Marxists need to up their game. Consider Britain’s King Charles II who, upon restoration of the Stuart dynasty, pulled old Oliver Cromwell from his cold clammy grave — dead two full years — hung him in chains and (as Cromwell had done to Charles I) beheaded cadaver Cromwell.

Now THAT is getting even with history!

Whom would YOU like to disinter?

    No one can defend slavery,(the indefensible) History, warts and all, must be preserved. We must continue to look forward, but never lose sight of where we have been. Move statues if you must. But posthumous Inquisitions must end. The South has a military tradition that is unrivaled (except perhaps by ancient Sparta, or the Zulus). The Civil War gutted the Union command staff due to these states seceding. Countless officers, a former Commandant of West Point, a former US Vice President, and so many others went with their states. The height of hubris is to think that you can view history through the lens of today. Prior to the war this country was the United STATES (plural) , and only AFTER the war became the UNITED STATES (one unified nation). When the states seceded these soldiers went with their states. ( If Great Britain leaves the European Union – you expect an Englishman to side with his home country!) Military men knew that the war would be fought in the South. The South did not have the means, nor the desire to invade the North. The North, on the other hand, had the means, and the sole purpose of conquering the South and bringing it back into the Union. The Federal troops in the South with poor re-supply would simply steal food and property, slaughter livestock,(abuse the women),and torch homes. The Confederate soldiers chose to put their homes and families first. Most never owned a slave, and none of them seceded – their incompetent politicians did. Antifa et al: Stop destroying the history of a country that you HATE! Become a worth-while human being! Respect the POLICE, for it is only the POLICE that protect you from people like me,

    The way I see it, we haven’t gone far enough. You’s want cleansing? Let’s do it up right!

    If memory serves, the Progressive Eugenicist desire to…um…regulate reproduction and the population wasn’t restricted to a certain segment of humanity, and The Gotch could make strong case they were far more diabolically hateful, bigoted, discriminatory, elitist, classist, and RAYcist over a far greater spectrum than any fringe group of White Supremacists or the Ante-Bellum South.

    Why? Because they sought a Greater Good, and they had the approval of their own consciences.

    Not to over-simplify, but back at the turn of the 20th century, the newly minted BIG GUBMINT Administrative State was coming off a clear victory of disabling the EVIL</b? Corporate Trusts. A goal achieved no longer motivates and, feeling their oats, what next? Hey, howse about improving humanity?

    Natural selection improved society over time, but a glacially slow pace; could these whiz kids jump start that with “Scientific Selection?”

    C’mon, you could improve flora-n-fauna by selective breeding, am I right? Why not extend those efforts to humans? Heck, what could possibly go wrong?

    Anywho, right here on campus, the U.W. Madison (GO BADGERS<!!) was in the thick of the Eugenics craze.

    Selective breeding, forced castrations & sterilizations, work camps, elimination of “inferiors,” ad infinitum ad naseum, Eugenics had everything nascent totalitarian Proglibocrats could want, and then some.

    U.W. academics Charles Van Hise, Edward Ross, John R. Commons, and “Progressive Political Economist and Social Gospel Advocate” Richard T. Ely were of…um…similar mindset; all but Ross would be considered for a Bucky Mt. Rushmore.

    Have their books, awards, scholarships, plaques, their freakin’ memories, been the subject of any weepy hand-wringing? Not that I’ve heard.

    Van Hise Elementary School has “sister” Velma Hamilton Middle School, which may soften some of the historical stigma, of which most aren’t aware.

    And I’ve heard no call for renaming Van Hise Hall on campus yet; you?

      You are dead-on here. However, you forgot to mention that the Republican Party was in bed with that bunch at UW, which is the reason that Catholics in this State were NEVER going to vote Pubbie. You also didn’t mention Dr. Rogers, whose eponymous mental-disease place is right in beautiful downtown Oconomowoc….early on, it had a less-than-stellar reputation.

      It’s interesting that the Parties switched positions on abortion in roughly the ’60’s–but the Rocky Pubbies, including the Bush Dynasty, kept up the eugenics (to a limited degree) and the population-control funding.

      With the abortion-position switch, the Pubbies managed to slowly regain Catholic votes. Trump’s whole-hog anti-abortion stance may gain a few more votes, but he’ll lose even more of the NeverTrump population-control types.

      IMHO, not a big loss at all.

    “Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.”

    These godless, gutless censorious cowrds must think that they have to burn down the country in order to save it. But rather than the Cancel Culture trying to “culturally clense” us from all of America’s sins, we should acknowledge them and learn from history, so we don’t repeat it.

    That would require the eduacational/government industrial complex, (beware of), to actually teach history. American history has many inconvenient truths that would show it was the Democrats who brought us slavery, the KKK, Jim Crow laws, lynchings, segregation and abortion on demand.
    It’s show that one of the unintended consequences of LBJ’s Great Society” not only insured that “negroes” would vote for Democrts for the next 200 years, (only LBJ was more honest in his racial bigotry and didn’t use the word “negroes”) but that it was also responsible for generational dependence, the creation of a permanent underclass, the breakup of the black nuclear family and black babies being “choiced” (H/T: da Gotch) in record numbers.

      All true of course and an inconvenient truth at that, at least for leftys that is. However, we all know the common proglibocrat response is the parties later switched and the southern dems were actually republicans in values, philosophy, politics, and therefore the real true evil resides on republican doorsteps.

        Batman,

        Yours is an honest question and deserves an honest response. I’d simply refer Lefties to Prager U., so they can feed their little Lefty furry heads: https://www.facebook.com/prageru/videos/the-southern-strategy-is-a-le

        Throughout history Democrats have been hubristic hypocrites. These proglodytic paleo-lib pajama boyz have always preened and posed for holy pictures, while their policies have hurt regular, normal working Americans. Compare and contrast the DemonRats to the GOP:

        On March 20, 1854 the Republican Party was established in Ripon, Wisconsin.
        Referred to as the GOP or Grand Old Party, it established for one reason: to break the chains of slavery and ensure that our unalienable rights endowed by The Creator of LIFE, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness would be for ALL Americans.

        The Republican Party was created to achieve individual freedom. Then, as now, the antagonist to the Republican party has been the Democrats, the party of collective subjugation and individual enslavement, … then physical, now economic.

        The first black members of the US House and Senate were Republicans.
        The first civil rights legislation came from Republicans.

        Democrats gave us the KKK, Jim Crow, lynchings, poll taxes, literacy tests, and failed policies like the “Great Society.”

        Republican President Eisenhower ordered troops to enforce school desegregation. Republican Senator Everett Dirksen enabled the 1964 civil rights legislation to pass, (in fact, the longest filibuster in Congress was by Democrats, [75 days] was AGAINST The 1964 Civil Rights Act) in opposition to Senators Robert Byrd (KKK Grand Wizard) and Al Gore, Sr. As a matter of fact, it was Democrat President Lyndon Baines Johnson who stated, “I’ll have those negroes voting Democratic for the next 200 years.” Only he didn’t say the word “negroes”. He used the N word. At least LBJ was honest in his racial bigotry.

        Democrats need more LBJs. … LBJ.. … LBJ?, … el BJ?!!!

    The destruction of our historic monuments is only possible because the “temporary stewards” of the monuments, today’s left-wing municipal and state authorities, allow the destruction to happen and even protect the destroyers. One wonders how the coming generations will look upon the destruction of icons of their heritage, the destroyers, and the officials who permitted it to happen.
