Those who say that their passion for the Confederacy is about honoring the soldiers who died in the United States (US) Civil Warand its history are trying to hide the fact that they believe in white supremacy. If not, they would use the history of the Confederacyto learn its valuable lessonsand improve themselves.
Those people, however, are on a mission to try to go back to the good old days of slavery. Everybody knows that that is exactly the message behind Trump’s “Make America Great Again”. Click on the following link to watch how deeply ingrained white supremacy is in the US:
33 years after the end of the Civil War, the US government (USG) decided to militarily invade Puerto Rico to make her its colony. These white supremacists believe that God has given them theright to go around the world andexploit as many people as they can!
That would explain the fact that the USG has never complied with the United Nations’ (UN) Charter that prohibits colonialism since its foundation in 1945.
That would also explain the fact that the USG has ignored 39 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans.
The great experiment was not the US’ establishment of democracy in America in 1776. That experiment has failed thus far. The evidence is the fact that the world believes that the USG is the biggest threat to peace!
The great experiment will be whethergood US citizens,the ones who really believe in liberty and justice for all, will succeed in preventing white supremacists from ever holding public offices. Because if we can’t, the US will continue to be a nation of the white supremacist, by the white supremacists, and for the white supremacists.
In God we trust?
