Robert Krick on Confederate Monuments

(January 26, 2018) In the excerpt below Civil War author Robert Krick offers pithy comments about those who want to remove, or destroy, Confederate monuments.

Krick then lobs a dead cat into the moral reformer worship service: “It is impossible to imagine a United States in the current atmosphere that does not include zealots eager to obliterate any culture not precisely their own, destroying monuments in the fashion of Soviets after a purge and antiquities in the manner of ISIS. The trend is redolent of the misery that inundated the planet during the aptly named Dark Ages, arising from savages who believed, as a matter of religion in that instance, that anyone with opinions different from their own was not just wrong, but craven and evil, and must be brutalized into conformity.”

The above is excepted from Old Virginia Blog, which is excerpted from the October, 2017 issue of Civil War Times.
