Try to do away with history is a sure way to repeat it. A Limerick.

Antifa and ISIS, the same

erase our hist’ry, their aim.

Do away with our past.

Start anew, this will last.

No history left to proclaim.

Like the French Revolution, when history and reason goes out the window things tend to get violent. Once the revolutionaries had killed all they could get their hands on, it was time to do away with Christianity for good. Let us no longer count time in B.C. and A.D. but start over with counting time. Once we are at it let us celebrate the creature rather than the Creator, and since we have ten fingers,  let us fully institute the metric system. One day is ten hours, one hour is one hundred minutes, one minute is 100 seconds. One week is 10 days, one month is 3 weeks.

But one year is still 12 three week months, so they had to add five or six days at the end to make it a true solar year. The extra days were given special names and were meant for celebration, somewhat like today’s Kwanzaa, also instituted to get rid of Christianity.

Needless to say, this did not last very long, but it caused a lot of damage.

ISIS worked the same way, erase history and start over. As a footnote: Former President Obama insisted on calling it ISIL; he gave ISIS the whole Levant, which includes Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Jordan and North West Saudi Arabia.

Isis demolished the Muslim version of the tomb of Jonah

Which leads us the similarities with Antifa. They too are trying to erase history. In their case they are trying to erase the shameful connection between the Democratic Party and the Civil War statues dotting the South. The Generals and civic leaders were all Democrats. O, the irony of it all!

Down they come!

All with the apparent approval of the local City (Democratic) government.

One thing still puzzles me. Why the hatred for Cristóbal Colón. His statue was decpitated, then torn down in many places?

Will we ever learn?

Once praised by Nancy Pelosi’s father, The statue of Jackson and lee removed under cover of darkness, a Limerick

Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee

Nancy’s father did praise mightily.

Times indeed now have changed,

PC crowd more deranged.

The ANTIFA creates a melee.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s father, the late former Baltimore Mayor Thomas D’Alesandro Jr., once lauded Confederate generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson at a monument dedication ceremony in his city over half a century ago.

According to The Baltimore Sun, the statue, first erected in 1948, included a dedication ceremony of prominent city politicians like Pelosi’s father who led the municipality at the time.

At the dedication, D’Alesandro said of the monument, “Today, with our nation beset by subversive groups and propaganda which seeks to destroy our national unity, we can look for inspiration to the lives of Lee and Jackson to remind us to be resolute and determined in preserving our sacred institutions.”

That was then,

this is now

The statue  was torn down and removed by Baltimore authorities under cover of darkness Tuesday night Aug 22 -23
