Special to the Mirror by Paul Plante
Doesn’t that sound like something Shakespeare might have said in one of his plays back when?
And what a time this is to be alive if you like drama, and plenty of it, and let’s face it, we’re all living lives of quiet desperation as someone once said who was said to know such things, and so we all crave drama to get us through the otherwise boring day!
As to drama, and plenty of it, for one thing, as I write these words, one form of language using antiquated words such as I use in here is dying, and a new language based on some form of gibberish called TWEETERESE is being born and is becoming used by the masses on a large scale, with some 328 million TWEETERESE speakers as of last count, while OLD AMERICAN, the language used in here more and more is being relegated to cultural backwaters, as the government itself and the courts all modernize based on an initiative launched by American president Donald Trump, who can actually speak in TWEETERESE, as well as compose presidential orders and missives and proclamations in it, and go over to TWEETERESE themselves so as to not lose a dime of the federal money they would have coming to them to convert.
Since TWEETERESE is still being invented, there is no dictionary to convert it into OLD AMERICAN, and won’t be for years, with the result that one generation in America can’t communicate in any meaningful way with another generation in America, with the one generation, the remaining OLD AMERICAN speakers, fading into obscurity as unneeded and therefore societally useless anachronisms, as the new generation takes charge of America at last, which is happening big time as I write these words.
A consequence of that societal upheaval where not only the language but the values themselves of an older generation are being cast onto the dustbin of history, is that we are becoming a nation without a common language or a common history or a common culture.
Old American history is falling all around us, to be replaced with a new politically correct revisionist American history that is still being invented as you read these words.
Consider the BALTIMORE SUN article “Roger Taney statue removed from Maryland State House grounds overnight – The statue of former U.S. Chief Justice Roger Taney, located outside of the Maryland State House in Annapolis, was removed overnight” by Pamela Wood and Erin Cox dated August 18, 2017, wherein was stated:
Under the cover of night, a work crew removed the statue of former Supreme Court Chief Justice Roger B. Taney, taking down the author of the infamous Dred Scott decision from his 145-year prominent perch in Annapolis.
It’s the latest monument linked to the Confederate era to be removed from a public square since white nationalists rallied in Charlottesville, Va., last weekend.
Ah, yes, people, the Confederate Era, which is becoming a forbidden topic in modern America with its new history that is being invented for us as I write these words.
And since we are on the subject of the forbidden Confederate Era, which is being written out of our history to be replaced by something new, which has yet to be announced, that brings me to my topic of will they submit, or will they resist, and the “they” are I am referring to is the U.S. Army and the Department of Defense and Secretary of Defense General Jim “Mad Dawg” Mattis and Major General Gary M. Brito, Commanding General, JRTC and Fort Polk, Louisiana.
When the howling mob of American Red Guards who are sweeping away old American history to replace it with a new, as-of-yet unannounced American history which has no remnants of old Confederate Era history in it come to Fort Polk in Louisiana to demand that any statues of Leonidas Polk in the possession of the U.S. Army at Fort Polk in Louisiana be destroyed along with any reference to him or his name anywhere on the post, with a further demand that the Army change the name of Fort Polk to Fort Hillary Clinton and Martin Luther King to rid it of its white supremacist racial overtones, will the Army resist that order from the Red Guard mob?
Or will it back down and accede to the mob’s demands out of fear of the mob?
Will Major General Gary M. Brito, Commanding General of the JRTC and Fort Polk, Louisiana, a native of Hyannis, Massachusetts who was commissioned an Infantry officer through Pennsylvania State University, entering active duty in March 1987, and assuming command of the Joint Readiness Training Center and Fort Polk on May 4, 2016, whose previous assignments included Deputy Commanding General (Operations), 25th Infantry Division, Schofield Barracks, Hawaii; Director, Force 2025 and Beyond, US Army Capabilities and Integration Center (ARCIC); Training and Doctrine and Command (TRADOC); and Operations Officer (G3) for III Corps, Fort Hood, Texas, in which capacity, he deployed and served as the Deputy Director, Afghanistan National Security Forces (ANSF) Development, International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) Joint Command in Kabul, Afghanistan, while throughout his career, he has served in a variety of command and staff assignments to include Commander, 120th Infantry Brigade, First Army; Commander, 1st Battalion, 15th Infantry Regiment, 3d Brigade, 3d Infantry Division; Operations Officer (S3), 2d Battalion, 8th Infantry Regiment; and later as the Brigade Operations Officer (S3), 2d Brigade, 4th Infantry Division, and Aide-de-Camp to the III Corps Commanding General, Fort Hood, Texas; and Chief, Commander’s Planning Group (CPG) and interim Executive Officer to the Commanding General, TRADOC, twice serving at the National Training Center, Fort Irwin, California; first as a Company/Team and Battle Staff Observer/Controller and later as a Senior Battalion and Brigade Combat Team Trainer, who deployed to both Iraq and Afghanistan and is the recipient of numerous decorations and badges, a graduate of the Infantry Officer Basic and Advanced courses, Airborne and Ranger schools, Combined Arms Staff Services School, Command General and Staff Officers Course, and Senior Service College at the Joint Advanced Warfighting School (JAWS), Norfolk, Virginia, holding a Bachelor of Science degree in Community Studies from Penn State University, a Master’s degree in Human Resources from Troy State University, and a second Master’s degree in Joint Campaign Planning and Strategy from the Joint Forces Staff College, simply stand down and surrender the Fort to the mob?
Or will he stand up to them, instead?
And why would the howling mob of Red Guards revising American history to make it politically correct be at Fort Polk making its demands in the first place?
A good question that is easily answered by referring to a book entitled Second Training Brigade Fort Polk, Louisiana United States Army Training Center – Infantry Company C Fifth Battalion, in the section HISTORY OF FORT POLK, wherein we are informed as follows:
Fort Polk, largest Army installation in Louisiana, containing 232 square miles, is also the youngest, fastest growing training facility in the Army.
Located in western Louisiana, near the burgeoning communities of Leesville and DeRidder, the installation covers more than 148,500 acres of Kisatchie National Forest.
The Post, originally called Camp Polk, was established as a result of the famous Louisiana maneuvers of 1941-42.
Twenty-two million dollars worth of construction was completed in mid-1942.
Fort Polk was named after the Right Reverend Leonidas Polk, known as the “Fighting Bishop.”
Reverend Polk was killed in action in 1864 at Marietta, Georgia, while fighting as a Confederate lieutenant general.
There it is, people – Fort Polk, Louisiana, is named after a Confederate general who was fighting to maintain slavery in America which means the United States Army itself, which does have a lot of skinheads in it when you think about it, is celebrating America’s racist past and white supremacy, as well, and what a blot on our national consciousness that it, that we would have an army in this country that names it bases after enemies of the United States of America who were pro-slavery white supremacists.
So you can see why these history revisionists would be hot to make Fort Polk in Louisiana their next target now that they have gotten rid of Judge Taney and Bob Lee and Stonewall Jackson.
So this is going to be an interesting showdown when the howling mob of American Red Guards come to Fort Polk in Louisiana, which bills itself today as “HOME OF HEROS,” to demand that any statues of Leonidas Polk be destroyed along with any reference to him or his name anywhere on the post, which is going to have to change its name to Fort Hillary Clinton and Martin Luther King.
And when Leondias Polk goes down, who from the Confederate Era will go down next?
How about Abraham Lincoln, a well-known symbol himself of America’s Confederate Era and the white supremacy that era represents.
I mean clearly, that dude was as racist as they come, and a white supremacist to boot, as can clearly be seen in Part I of the 4th Debate of the Lincoln-Douglas Debates between Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas in Charleston, Illinois on September 18, 1858, where Lincoln revealed himself as a white supremacist as follows:
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN: It will be very difficult for an audience so large as this to hear distinctly what a speaker says, and consequently it is important that as profound silence be preserved as possible.
While I was at the hotel today, an elderly gentleman called upon me to know whether I was really in favor of producing a perfect equality between the negroes and white people.
While I had not proposed to myself on this occasion to say much on that subject, yet as the question was asked me I thought I would occupy perhaps five minutes in saying something in regard to it.
I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races, that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality.
And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race.
I will add to this that I have never seen, to my knowledge, a man, woman or child who was in favor of producing a perfect equality, social and political, between negroes and white men.
Now, there is a dude whose name needs to be scrubbed form American history and yes, indeed, the statue of Abe Lincoln in Washington, D.C. should be toppled down like Saddam’s statue was in Iraq, because it is yet another disturbing reminder of America’s racist past, and until every mention of Abe Lincoln is scrubbed from American history, including such reminders as the Lincoln bedroom in the white house, there can be no peace and harmony in this troubled land.
So get it done, America.
Get that white supremacist Abe Lincoln down off his pedestal and put him in the dustbin of history where he belongs, and peace and harmony will once again reign in the very troubled land.
