With yesterday’s stroke of a pen and the ceremony today, the Stars and Bars has been removed from the South Carolina state grounds, with dignity, to be relegated to a museum. Some thought the flag was a symbol of hatred and others saw it as an icon for their heritage. Regardless, the battle flag is on its way to a display case and the editing pens of the left have been dipped in ink.

Already, the history is beginning to change. At Gettysburg National Military Park, nothing with the Confederate flag will be sold and, above Ft Sumter, where the first shots were fired to begin the Civil War, the Confederate flag has been struck. Memphis city leaders want to dig up the remains of General Nathan Bedford Forrest and his wife from the city’s Health Science Park and moved elsewhere. They are no longer welcome at the park. How much longer before history books completely remove events that happened between 1860 and 1865 altogether?

Admittedly, slavery was a terrible thing in America, as it was in a large number of countries. It still exists in some nations, but not in America, despite leftist rants. The United States actually went to war to end slavery. There is a debate on whether the war was about slavery or states’ rights, but, if you read the articles that established the Confederacy, it’s pretty obvious that the primary state right they were concerned about was slavery. Abraham Lincoln, the first Republican to win the Presidency, campaigned in 1860 to end slavery. The Democrat-run South balked and began preparations for secession.

On January 31, 1865, towards the end of the war, Congress approved  the 13th Amendment, prohibiting slavery in America and it was ratified on December 6, 1865, becoming part of the US Constitution. While all Republicans voted for the amendment, only 23% of the Democrats supported it. The 14th Amendment, giving citizenship for freed former slaves garnered 0% Democrat support; likewise the 15th, giving the right to vote.

The Democrats have a long history of being on  the wrong side  where slavery is concerned. They ran the South before, during and after the Civil War and through the time of the Civil Rights era. They started and dominated the Ku Klux Klan during that time. Through all of this, they scream that Republicans are the racists. Maybe, that’s why they are so desperate to change and pervert history. It’s a method of managing their deceit. And the sheep will blindly follow after.
