The Founders’ Burka

I posted an essay last week about the solemn occasion when the statue of General Robert E. Lee in Charlottesville was shrouded in its new official Confederate burka — a temporary expedient until the trivial inconvenience of state law can be circumvented, and the statue removed and destroyed.

It was only a matter of time until other Dead White Males were issued their burkas. But it hasn’t been very long — less than a month later, Thomas Jefferson has earned his. Standing in front of the Rotunda at the university he founded, Mr. Jefferson’s offensive slave-owning visage was covered up last night by the righteous activists of Black Lives Matter.

Confederates go first. Then other slave-owners. Then all the Founders who imposed their oppressive racist patriarchal system upon the marginalized minorities, women, LGBTQs, Native Americans, and disabled people of America. After that it will be the rest of the Dead White Males, all the way up to St. FDR — despite his being the author of the New Deal and a consummate progressive, Mr. Roosevelt was white and male and is now safely dead, so he must go.


We stand united in our determination to eliminate the history we don’t like and replace it with the one we like. Only then can we join hands and stride confidently into the bright, shining, tolerant, inclusive multicultural future.

Here’s the report from The Washington Times:

Black Lives Matter protesters deface Jefferson’s statue at UVa. in Charlottesville

The statue of Thomas Jefferson was attacked Tuesday evening by protesters at the university he founded.

According to local media in Charlottesville, about 100 students, faculty and local residents shrouded the statue in black and hung a banner on it saying “Black Lives Matter” and that “White Supremacy” should commit a sexual act.

Others in the small rainy-night crowd carried signs reading “Thomas Jefferson is a racist and a rapist” and chanted “No Trump, No KKK, no racist UVa.”

The defacement came one month after riots over a white-nationalist protest against a similar shrouding by the city council of statues of Confederate generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson.

“One month ago, we stood on the front lines in downtown Charlottesville as all manner of white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and neo-fascists swarmed the area,” a speaker told the crowd, according to the Charlottesville Daily Progress. “Two months ago, the Ku Klux Klan rallied in their safe space, fully robed and fully protected by multiple law enforcement agencies who brutalized and tear gassed peaceful counter-protesters.”

  1. Stark raving mad. Why do the American People allow this abuse? For crying out loud, have Americans no self-respect and pride left? I thought Europe was bad but this is insane. Not one of these pathetic brain dead “SJWs” was alive in 1860 so why does it bother them? Strangers in the land, in strange towns they have no connection with.

    Dear God I despise the Left more and more. This will end in serious loss of life-trust me.

  2. Let’s put the events in Charlottesville into perspective.

    A primary tenet of cultural-Marxism is that Western culture is corrupt, Western peoples are evil, and Western history is an enslaving myth.

    So, the details really don’t matter. The BLM street-thugs are not that bright, but the organizers and kapo-professor-speakers care nothing about facts or history. Since the culture, people, and history are evil, they may be bent and distorted for the overall beneficial purpose of being dissolved. In other words, the objectives of the BLM speakers and Antifa is not the replacement of Western culture, but its abolishment altogether. The journalists and college administrators were all trained in cultural-Marxist educational classes, and agree with these objectives.

    People who believe in logic, progress, and Western culture do believe that truth and details matter, but in this case, they are totally irrelevant to the defense.

    One has to ask if the power of destruction has an advantage over the concept of truth and progress. Like the Banyan statues of Buddha prior to the destruction of them by the Taliban, the priceless artistic and philosophical relics of freedom and creativity need only go through one period of nihilistic revolution in order to be irretrievably destroyed.

    It’s folly to expect logic or truth in the leftist media or the leftist political campaigns. The organizing principle they use is clear, and clearly predicts their future actions. Once you understand their philosophical concept that all culture and Western identification is evil, none of their actions become surprising. This explains the trans-gender bathrooms, the pressure to allow preschoolers to prescribe for themselves powerful hormonal treatments to stop their normal development, the social pressures against the pronouns “he” and “she”, the “mansplaining” hotlines. All these monstrosities are focused directly and solely at destroying the present culture in the US and demolishing peoples sense of belonging and identity.

  3. Back in the good ole’ days, when some important virtues were better than the democrat party’s many and long evils now brought home to front and center in America, with the majority being mentally sick and undereducated people (look at HRC, and she and hussein’s crooked degenerate DNC), back when the Catholic hierarchy had some self respect, a degree of public respect, and occasional intelligence, along with the Protestants, back then, there was this wonderful quote appropriate for TODAY, and ALWAYS, by the regarded, (perhaps more outside the Church) Bishop Fulton J. Sheen,

    A Plea for Intolerance by Fulton J. Sheen – Monsignor Fulton J. Sheen
    In 1931, Monsignor Fulton J. Sheen wrote the following essay:

    “America, it is said, is suffering from intolerance-it is not. It is suffering from tolerance. Tolerance of right and wrong, truth and error, virtue and evil, Christ and chaos. OUR COUNTRY IS NOT NEARLY SO OVERRUN WITH THE BIGOTED AS IT IS OVERRUN WITH THE BROADMINDED.”

    “Tolerance is an attitude of reasoned patience toward evil … a forbearance that restrains us from showing anger or inflicting punishment. Tolerance applies only to persons … never to truth. Tolerance applies to the erring, intolerance to the error … Architects are as intolerant about sand as foundations for skyscrapers as doctors are intolerant about germs in the laboratory.”

    “Tolerance does not apply to truth or principles. About these things we must be intolerant, and for this kind of intolerance, so much needed to rouse us from sentimental gush, I make a plea. INTOLERANCE OF THIS KIND IS THE FOUNDATION OF ALL STABILITY.”

    That represents a truly good side of the Church, now missing more than in a long time. That quote is always truth. It reflects from the wishes of God, “Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. -Romans 12:9

    • I am a bit late with my response to this, but that is a fine essay from Monsignor Fulton Sheen. My mother was a big fan. There are too few leaders today who offer words of wisdom. Newspapers are filled with political rhetoric, but little in the way of thoughtful analysis reflecting moral clarity. Thanks for posting.
