The Rewriting Of American History

Dear Editor,

On Sept. 2, 2023, a public comment period will end on the subject of removing the Confederate memorial from the Arlington National Cemetery.

This is part of this liberal, whiny, communist national committee that was formed to do away with anything related to the War Between the States in an attempt to pacify and buy votes for the (National Socialist) Democrat Party.

Arlington National Cemetery was created by a Union general who thought it would be a way of insulting Confederate General Robert E. Lee by burying Union dead on his land. It became the National Cemetery for the internment of those that made the ultimate sacrifice for our great country.

The Civil War, or War Between the States, was and still is a dark portion of American history. One that needs to be remembered, not covered up by removing it and everything connected to it from the history books. If you are going to do that, then you need to rewrite all of American history from the early founding of this this country on.

This is just one part of the insanity taking place in places like California. Oh wait, it’s not just there. It seems High Point has caught the bug and is looking at giving people money for nothing. I believe this is a subversive means of buying votes, but nobody on the High Point City Council would do that. We better be careful or some of the county commissioners might start getting ideas.

I guess we need to start looking for those that had ancestors who were members of the Nazi Party and take actions against them since they killed American soldiers. The same for descendants of the Communist Party, since they did the same. I want money for that.

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”  – George Santayana

I would slightly modify that quote. Those who cannot remember (or worse ignore and rewrite) the past are condemned to repeat it. And I will say again what I have said and still believe – the inmates are running the asylum, and I will add they are taking the rest of us to hell with them because all we seem to do is stand by and watch.

Carpe diem,

Alan Marshall
