TC: That was eloquent. It is a sad, sad day when it has come to this. Folt should be fired along with the Chapel Hill Chief of Police and Prof Dwayne Dixon. ( for starters)

I agree, Fred. Heads ought to roll, and they won't.

Go ahead and call me a Nazi but FYI Germany has many memorials their soldiers killed in WWI and WWII.

Notably none of them displays the Swastika

And for bonus points , a poem

A Bright New Day

Kick in that marble headstone, for he wore a coat of grey.
He has no right to rest in peace upon our bright new day.
Dismantle that old statue; for he battled for the south.
And don't you stand against us, either join or shut your mouth.

Knock down that bloody obelisk; you know he owned a slave;
and dump his wretched remnants deep inside an unmarked grave.
The bearded top hat fellow, blow him up and knock him down.
The Navajo will tell you that he scorched their sacred ground.

The one that wore a wheelchair, let us purge him from the earth,
His new deal was internment for the sin of Asian birth.
And every war memorial is next upon our list.
for the innocent collateral demands they not exist.

Blow up that Black Hills mountain, as we feel the rush no more;
for a roughish riding monger killing Spaniards by the score.
The other peddled genocide against the native Sioux,
and bondage is the stain upon the loathsome other two.

Rip up the iron railway from our sea to shining sea.
The Chinaman was chattel, as he toiled slavishly.
Incinerate the White House, and then bury its remains;
for some of its construction was completed wearing chains.

There is no rest until our noble cause is finally through.
And that is when we burn the flag adorned with red and blue.
And now that we are at it, let us cross the briny sea,
and topple every monument where righteous disagree.

The Roman Colosseum, for the Christians that would bleed.
The Arc de Triomphe glorifies a tyrant's bloody greed.
The Taj Mahal for celebrating executed kin.
The tower up in London for the torture held within.
We shall tear down Chichen Itza for its human sacrifice.
The Vatican for patriarchal view of paradise..
And all the German building that were built before the war.
And every Ancient fortress that still stands upon a shore.

The Pyramids an edifice to power over serf
The China Wall a racist, xenophobic love of turf.
The world is full of evil, we shall right it with our force.
And everyone is guilty..... Well except for us of course.

Chuck Porretto
