This comment alone will raise the hackles of the pollical class(less) and ahistorical clueless.
God’s guidance and blessing began in Virginia. But Civil War is where we are today. And a turning point battle will be this November at the midterm elections. Who will be the winner: Democrats, Republicans or republicans?
For those who have had the usual blather from a contemporary public-school education, a little background. Well, actually, more than a little if your public schools (and universities) are as useless as they are as this is written. Point to make: Critical Race Theory is not simply a fool’s errand. It is fool’s delight.
The “1776 Project” is just another fool.
Most of the above-mentioned public schools repeat historical nonsense learned via rumor and winner-take-all indoctrination, or worse, from other public “educators.” Learning from contemporary public schools is like learning about sex from graffiti written on public bathroom walls.
However, that “un” Civil War in the 1861-65 story that is taught was (and is) a historical hoax, insofar as its improper nomenclature, i.e., a civil war is one in which two sides are battling for control of a single government.
That 1861-65 business was a war of secession, no different than the American “Revolution”; itself a revolt only in the sense that various colonies refused to be used as economic whipping boys by the British Parliament. It, too, was neither a civil war. Also, it was not a revolution to overthrow a government.
Of the 1861-65 business, the South’s secession was also no different than a nonviolent secession of the singularly independent states (continued)
