Dylann Roof murdered nine black people in a Charleston church. James Hodgkinson tried to murder several Republicans on a Virginia ballfield. Some Muslims are murdering Christians.
Police investigations uncovered Roof’s affinity for the Confederate flag; Hodgkinson’s affinity for Bernie Sanders; and the jihadists’ affinity for the Koran.
Liberals, black and white, are using Roof’s affinity as a pretext and excuse to erase and re-write history by removing Confederate flags and monuments. Behaving like Orwell’s totalitarian villains, liberals have fallaciously condemned the flag as guilty by association with murder. The Republicans, in contrast, have not called for the removal of Bernie and the Dems from American soil; nor have Christians demanded the earth be cleared of Muslims and mosques.
All ignorant hysterics about slavery and “racism” notwithstanding, the South was right because Southerners fought for the Biblical principles of ordered liberty, race realism and self-government. Real Christians today should make Orwell fiction again by lifting high the Confederate cross of Christ.
Never miss a local story.
