The city of Richmond has been on a mission to erase and expunge Southern history. It has ruined Monument Avenue– which used to be one of the most beautiful urban thoroughfares anywhere. And now, it has desecrated the grave of a well-known Civil War general.
The monument to General A.P. Hill had been located at a given intersection. Beneath the monument was his grave; and this was the last monument to be removed within the city of Richmond. The workers at the site excavated and found his casket decayed. The general’s remains were apparently then delivered to his descendants.
I was fortunate enough to attend medical school in Richmond during the 1980’s. It was a beautiful city back then. But now it has become a cultural Marxist hellhole.
We look at the state of our country and wonder what happened. Many conservatives trace the roots of our current problems back to the Progressive Era during the early twentieth century. But in fact, some historians and analysts point back to what Lincoln did during the Civil War era. That was the beginning of the unraveling of our Constitution– and the country itself.
Now we have a fake president openly celebrating the passage of LGBTQ+ legislation on the White House lawn with Republican support. This did not occur in a vacuum. Instead, it is the latest manifestation of a concerted attack that has been taking place over a long period of time.
