Good for them

Be them
Good things can start with baby steps.  A school board in Virginia - Shenandoah Valley Schools - has voted to restore the names of Confederate generals to schools in its district.  The article says this is the first time in US history that a school district has done this.  I don't know how many times it has come up.  The names were changed in the anti-American protests and riots that took place in 2020. 

Of course conservatives hail Donald Trump as a prophet for seeing where destroying the statues of Robert E. Lee would end up going.  But that's not prophetic.  That's common sense and reality.  Anyone who didn't think it would end up being used to wipe out anything in America's and the West's history or heritage was either a fool or a coward or a Marxist.  Hence why Nikki Haley jumping on the bandwagon with the Confederate flags was a deal breaker for me.  Either she was willing to play with forces dedicated to destroying the Western Tradition and American Experiment, or she was hopelessly naive.  

But this is good news.  It will likely come under a withering assault from the anti-Western forces of the Left (let's finally be honest people).  And this would be a good time for citizens of the Democratic West and the heritage of the Western Christian tradition to rally around them and plant their banners around this school district.  I think one problem with standing up to the forces against the Faith and its heritage is the tendency we have of letting those who do so get shot to pieces by the Left.

    Modern mass media beginning around WWI and totalitarian ideology have demolished the old Western and Christian idea of the "noble foe". Now all my enemies are Hitler (which is a Putin tactic BTW) and every defeated soldier or at least general is a "war criminal", which even if sometimes true (as with the Nazi SS) in the broader sweep of history makes reconciliation impossible and hides the fact (and tragedy) that sometimes good and decent men have had recourse to arms to settle differences. When the tide of history turns against these Leftists (and it will if we survive) they will reap what they have sown.

    1. Well, now the victor can just as easily be the war criminal. Most almost anything you'll read about WW2 - at least from modern corp. media sources - will frame it as a giant war crimes venture on the part of the Allies, particularly the USA. And yes, I think it would be particularly cruel to wish for the modern Left to receive the full results of everything the modern Left has enabled.

    2. “There is no other legend quite like the legend of the Confederate fighting man. He reached the end of his haunted road long ago. He fought for a star-crossed cause and in the end he was beaten, but as he carried his slashed red battle flag into the dusky twilight of the Lost Cause he marched straight into a legend that will live as long as the American people care to remember anything about the American past. – Bruce Catton.”
