New: The Anti-Trump Resistance Encourages Violence

“ANTIFA” are planning on holding a rally at Gettysburg National Battlefield on July 1st, asks it’s members to “Bring and Burn Confederate Flags”.

By: Amy Lynne Thomas – The Sunbury American and Northumberland County Journal

Over the past few weeks, several US cities have been a hotbed of controversy over the removal of several Confederate monuments. After decades standing sentinel over New Orleans, the last of four Confederate monuments have been removed after being labeled as “Monuments of Racism and Hate”. New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu said of the removal of his city’s monuments: “To literally put the Confederacy on a pedestal in our more prominent places—in honor—is an inaccurate recitation of our full past, is an affront to our present and it is a bad prescription for our future”. The next state to follow in the footsteps in the movement is Arizona, where leaders call for the swift removal of six Confederate monuments around the state.

Most recently, “Antifa” protesters in Texas have demanded the removal of a 100-year-old statue and “any other landmark that bears the name of Sam Houston”. Houston, one of the founders of Texas, was a staunch Unionist and denounced the creation of the Confederacy. But Houston owned slaves, so he’s been added to the purge list, which now includes: Andrew Jackson, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and Woodrow Wilson, among many others.

Susan Platt, a candidate for Lieutenant Governor of Virginia, called for the Commonwealth to take down Confederate monuments and rename Confederate-themed highways and public buildings. In her political announcement, she states “I don’t believe it is right to celebrate an act of treason against the United States of America, a war that was waged for the purpose of maintaining slavery”.

In an online video,  Right Wing News stated that the “City of Baltimore wants to follow in New Orleans footsteps and remove several Confederate monuments”; including monuments to General Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson and ones to soldiers, sailors, and women.

Many have asked, “How long til this moves North?” To answer that question, the statue of a former mayor, Orville Hubbard, was removed from the front of the old City Hall building in Dearborn, Michigan and spent 17 months in storage before being placed on the lawn of the Dearborn Historical Museum. Beyond his name and dates of service, the statue’s new site will not provide any information about Hubbard and his views that made Dearborn “a symbol of the deep-seated racism of the North,” the New York Times said in 1969.

A local group of self-proclaimed anti-fascism activists called “ANTIFA” are planning on holding a rally at Gettysburg National Battlefield on July 1st in protest of President Trump and asks it’s members to “Bring and Burn Confederate Flags”. The reasoning behind why this group picked the date and location for their rally is for the importance Gettysburg played in the American Civil War. The Battle of Gettysburg started on July 1, 1863, when Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia met General George Meade’s Union Army of the Potomac. During the three-day battle, about 165,000 soldiers clashed in and around the small town of Gettysburg. When the Battle of Gettysburg was over on July 3, 1863, 51,000 soldiers were casualties (killed, wounded, captured or missing) in what remains the largest battle ever fought in North America. There are approximately 1,328 monuments, markers and memorials that stand in both the cemetery and battlefield to commemorate the Union and Confederate troops who fought there.

In removing any monument or marker of history, to what purpose does that serve? History in every corner of the world while oftentimes ugly and heinous, still serves a purpose. It is a remembrance to learning from our past and not condemning ourselves to repeat it. To some, it is a heritage that we tell future generations of who they are, where they come from and our American history is not a stumbling block but a stepping stone to a better future.

    3. Dont use your firearms. Bring Fire Extinguishers and put out the Fires. A Fire Extinguisher makes a great self defense tool and will disband a large group of protestors. A Fire Extinguisher is legal in every State. Good Luck and be Safe Patriots.

    4. It is a disgrace for these monuments to be removed. I believe those of us who stand proud of our men who fought for the cause, now need to call the authorities and request a heavy coverage of lawful police to be there to arrest any person who desecrates or destroys anything on the grounds, and to shut them down, removing the people of unruly protest and put them in jail, without bond. This country is being destroyed and needs to be taken back.

Who knows if some of these people really dug back into their family history some of them might be suprised and find out that some of their own family might be some of the ones that they might destroy their grave or find out that some of their family might be one of the main people who led or helped in the Confederatacy

  2. These people should be put in jail just like any other person breaking the law, period! They are so blind to the fact that what they are doing in most of the things they protest they are doing just what they’re complaining about. They’re like photo negative Nazi’s! What the fuck!?!
    Also, you can’t change the past doing what they’re doing.
    You can’t tell people not to speak about something just because you believe differently. Yes please reread that if you didn’t understand it the first time.
    You can’t go around destroying people’s property because you’re upset about an event going on it that area. That’s breaking the law or maybe even more accurately it’s an act in terrorism! Just stop!

  5. Susan Platt should be ashamed of herself! Making incorrect statements about our history to serve her own agenda. The Civil War was NOT fought to maintain slavery, it was fought, as most wars are, for POWER. The North wanted to control the lands of the South. The South was thinking about seceding but the North (and Lincoln) wasn’t about to let that happen because the South provided many products and the North wouldn’t have survived without the South! Please be sure you know what you are saying before you spew words. Words matter!

  6. Do these people not realise that without a history we do not have a future!!!, as stated above history is everywhere and not everyone will like that history BUT it happened we cannot and should not hide it but learn from it, there were no memorials before the civil war yet it happened, the memorials are there as a reminder to the human race of what we as a people are capable of, they are not there to justify or glamorize a war that touched all of America, without that war how long would the forced enslavement of our fellow human beings have gone on for? decades or even longer? The war was not fought (in the early years) to free the slaves, that only came later in the war, so are we to tear down memorials to the Union generals or even Lincoln himself for not acting sooner!!! To burn any flag is a dangerous thing, today flags tomorrow human beings!! these people have no right to burn any flag nor do they have the right to desecrate the graves or the memories of those who fought for the North Or the South. If these people are angry at Trump, then have the guts to go and tell him what you think through the ballot box, or maybe the ballot box might just be a little too democratic for the likes of them. let the dead rest in peace, let your history teach you about where you come from, how your nation (a great nation) was born of such a brutal war between Americans, the great nation which came forth kicking and screaming from that great conflict was a nation forged in the blood of its youth and in the freedom of all its peoples. Be proud of your heritage, celebrate who you are do not spend your lives denying it.
    This is from me, an Irish man,not an American, hatred and denial only allows the perfect conditions to spawn further conflict. Black or White, celebrate your heritage, history and your great nations re-birth.
