I received an email from a friend in the upper South just a day or so ago that was about a statue of a Confederate general that was being taken down. Since this friend doesn’t usually get involved with Southern Heritage issues, I wrote back and explained to him that the political and theological leftists would never be satisfied until all of Southern Heritage and culture was totally erased from our minds and memories.
Then he made an interesting comment. He wrote “First the South and then the country.” He understood what was going on. Indeed, “reconstruction” continues in our day. People don’t always think in those terms, even here in the South, but it’s true.
When the War for Southern Independence was over, they sent in the Yankee (Marxist) troops to occupy us – and along with, or shortly after, came the Yankee school teachers – the paragons of public education in the North – complete with their Yankee textbooks and lesson plans – all designed to teach benighted Southern children the “real truth” about what their fathers and sons fought the War over–and to teach the Southern kids “respect for national authority.”
In 1877 the Yankee troops left – the Yankee teachers and their version of our history remained. Their job was not done yet. It still isn’t. It won’t be done until every vestige of the memory of our Southern history, heritage, and culture is totally removed out of our minds.
Look at the public school system today and tell me your children are not in the process of being “reconstructed.” The history, (if such it can be called) they are being taught is replete with cultural abnormalities like Critical Race Theory and the 1619 project. This is all intended to mentally reconstruct your kids; worldview of history. Schools can’t teach math anymore because it has been deemed “racist.’ Schools can no longer teach the literary classics because they supposedly reflect “white privilege.” Many of your public schools have “trans closets” where boys can change into a dress if they feel like a girl today, and vice versa – all with the blessing of the school!
Boys can no longer even be called boys, nor can girls be called girls because it’s now forbidden in many schools to use such pronouns. So please don’t tell me your kids, both North and South, are not being subjected to “reconstruction.” If you honestly believe they are not, or won’t be, then you are living in a delusion.
The only way to shut down this ongoing reconstruction is to get your kids out of the government “reconstruction” centers we still call public schools. If you don’t want to see your kids totally “reconstructed” from their brains on down, then that is exactly what you have to do – get them out of public schools and keep them out!
