American Elephants


An Attack on Our History As a Nation, A Marxist Ploy. by The Elephant's Child

You may have noticed that I am more than annoyed with these attempts to use the death of George Floyd captured on film to assume that he was killed because of racism, which should naturally lead to attempts to alter and destroy the history of the United States of America by tearing down and defacing statues, eliminating anything and everything associated with the Confederacy, and anything that could lead one to value our country.

There have been cries to eliminate the Star Spangled Banner, and replace it with something better, like John Lennon’s nauseous “Imagine.”They have even succeeded in getting some members of Congress to believe that the names of long standing military bases Fort Benning and Fort Bragg must be changed because they were named for Confederate Generals.

Indeed they were, but so what? I challenge anyone to ask the next 50 to 100 people they encounter not only where these “forts” are located, but who they are named for. You might run into someone who actually knows where they are — a lot of people who have served in the military trained there, but the source of the names? Highly unlikely, and so what?

Government, aside from being necessary, is seldom popular. The folks elected might do a better job than the last bunch, but then they may do a lot worse too.

Countries have enemies. The United States of America is a big powerful. wealthy country that occupies an outsize position in the world, and is probably resented more than loved. Because of all our freedoms, our people are free to innovate, invent, and discover, which is how we became powerful and wealthy. That kind of freedom is hard for governments to give away. The people elected to government usually don’t have all that much respect for those who elected them. which is why governments rise and fall.

Our founding documents: the Declaration of Independence and our Constitution are what must be discredited before anyone else can take over. There are still a lot of people who actually believe that Marxism is better because it makes everybody equal.

With just a little effort you can find pieces online written by American citizens who have escaped from Cuba or Venezuela warning that the current attacks on our freedom are what transformed Cuba and Venezuela into Communist prison states. The attacks on our history and our memories are not just because of George Floyd.

Our defense against Marxism and other political attacks is our own knowledge of our history and our understanding of the value of being an American. Our schools are clearly not doing a good job with the teaching of history, and many of our biggest nutcases seem to be ensconced in our institutions of higher learning.  The kids who are marching in the streets and tearing down statues learned it somewhere.
