Total Eclipse

Greatest Headline of All Time

Those readers living outside of Charlottesville, VA or Central Virginia proper might not be aware of the ongoing effort to pull down and move the statue of Gen. Robert E. Lee from the town square otherwise known as Lee Park (not named after Harper Lee or Bruce Lee or Stan Lee but after the same Robert E. Lee). Charlottesville is a college town and like all college towns it's filled with college professors and assorted flakes who vote nincompoops into elected office as their representatives so it was no surprise to me when back in April the city council decided to do this:
"Despite a pending court case that will ultimately determine the general’s fate, the Charlottesville City Council voted 3-2 Monday night to sell the city’s statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee."
"Confederate General" is a sad, marginalizing descriptor for what surly must be one of the greatest Americans to ever walk this land and lead its people by personal example of virtue and valor seldom matched in human history. A true son of the revolution ("The General" was the son of Major-General Henry "Light-Horse Harry" Lee III) this American was a husband, father, engineer, soldier, Indian hunter, farmer, warrior and educator. He knew exactly what the American Revolution was all about and when the dream collapsed in 1860 he was forced to make a choice between submission to blackguard usurpers from the north or defense of his native Virginia - he chose Virginia. In doing so he lead, mentored, loved and extinguished the flower of Southern manhood which is a legacy he would never (could never) forgive himself for. The best he could do - and he did it - was ensure a true and peaceful reconciliation of the waring states and heal the breach that he had played so important a part in tearing, day by bloody day, in his beloved nation. You want to sell off the monument erected to honor this man? Who, in today's world, will mount a vigorous defense to thwart this travesty of historical justice and force you - shame you - into atonement with all that is fair and good?

Why, the Ku Klux Klan of course. NOT a local politician (or federal politician), an educator or historian nor a celebrity could be found to defend this heroic soul but only the decedents of those scoundrels Lee refused to let join his army - the frigg'n KKK. And so last weekend 50 klan members marched at Lee Park to protest the removal of a statue of a man who would almost certainly have despised them. And that brought out the Antifa, trustifarian, SJW's in "resistance" to white supremacy and other contemporary problems like, for instance, the US system of government and gave them cause to disrupt and hate. Which lead to the greatest headline of all time in The Daily Progress on Sundays paper proclaiming that the KKK had been Eclipsed and that, my friends, is the absolute truth. The Klan could never, even in their wildest dreams, come up with a system of oppressive terror to destabilize minority communities than the shit that's advocated by BLM and their "progressive" comrades that include MS-13 and other organized gangs.

Where was I during this clash of civilizations? I was in the yoga studio downward dogging my way to happiness and painting pictures in a truly unique experience that combined yoga and drawing. Robert E Lee wouldn't have even been able to conceive that someone could be living the life I live in 21st Century Virginia. The country he fought for is long, long gone but his example lives on.

Holy shit. What an article/post. I am basically speechless. So I am going to leave this comment here. I wish everyone could read this article!

When you find yourself on one side of an argument with no one else but the KKK, perhaps some personal reflection is in order. Unless, of course, you're comfortable with their company.
This blog post IS a moment of reflection dipshit and I'm very satisfied with my conclusion. In short, Charlottesville VA is not worthy of the Robert E Lee statue and it should be moved to a location better suited (politically, culturally and spiritually) for a monument to this great American.

Easy, snowflake. I didn't intend to trigger you with some helpful advice. Keep up the name calling and you might lose 1 of your 2 readers. (That's -50%!) The argument you make in your reflection is weak.
100K+ page views from all over the world Anon and still going strong. You're "advice" is not helpful and your assessment of my argument is insufficient so I'm not triggered - I'm lazily swatting you away. Stop reading the blog - I couldn't care less and I don't write it for you anyway.

More than 100,000 views! Good job! However, I can tell that swatting isn't the only thing you do lazily. Learn the difference between "your" and "you're" and you might attract some literate followers who respect your writing. It might boost those numbers too (that was the last piece of advice, I swear). You'll get there, champ!

Honestly, I regret posting that. I'll stop.

(..but really, "you're" is a contraction.)
Anon - you have no conception of what this blog is all about. I don't want more viewers and I couldn't care less about grammar and spelling. Sometimes I don't even make sense. This blog has a target audience of 3 people who matter and they just read through the typos and laziness to he heart of the matter. Try it, you'll get there too (maybe).

Blue Devils and Yellow Cowards

A few weeks ago Duke lost Coach K’s last game at Camron Indoor Stadium to the schools hated rival, North Carolina University, in an epic grudge match. It was an “ unacceptable ” finale for the maniacal ferret-faced competitor who created the 40 year dynastic Duke hoops program with 1,000+ wins and fists full of ACC and NCAA championships but for Tar Heels everywhere it was a day of retribution. Michael  William Krzyzewski, is a red-blooded All-American college basketball coach of Polish and Ukrainian descent who grew up in Chicago’s famous Ukrainian Village which is (or at least was) culturally very reminiscent of the Rus borderlands. That is to say that young S h-shef-ski   grew up as  far away (psychology) from Dixie as is possible while still living within the borders of the USA. That makes him the perfect choice to represent Duke University and the Yankee overachievers who emigrate to Durham for 4 years of education and networking before moving back to non-Southern civilization.

Psycho Killer, qu'est-ce?

I came into this wicked world in the early 1960's and as a result I have born witness to America's 50 Years of Failure which includes the modern age of mass shootings by psychotic men who "go off" on a given day, for no reason at all (except "guns"), and kill scads of innocent bystanders. Back in August of 2019 a KOTCB blog post titled " Reciprocity City " explored a young  gunman  named Patrick Crusius  who drove 9 hours through the west Texas flatlands to shoot up El Paso, TX The KOTCB has commented on many of these shootings, bombings and knifings over the years -  The roots of the Boston Marathon Bombing ,  the Emanuel AME Church shooting ,  Syed Rizvan Farook and his bride Tashfeen Malik ,  Ft. Lauderdale Airport shooting ,  Nick Cruz lovesick Parkland shooting ,  the Iranian, PETA activist, Vegan Bodybuilder, YouTuber's attack on Google  and now this very oddly timed and placed "lone wolf" attack on Walmart shoppers. This list

Mask Off

U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle finally did it - after 14 months of mandatory masking by order of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) this capricious and ineffectual edict has been ruled unconstitutional and, it follows, illegal.  Since January 29, 2021 the CDC has prohibited citizens to travel without wearing a mask but the insanity actually started as far back as July 14, 2020 when " CDC calls on Americans to wear masks to prevent COVID-19 spread ." That's 643 days of stupidity folks - it covers the Kenosha Riots, the attempted kidnapping of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, the Fake 2020 Election, the 1/6 Save America March and Insurrection, Jo(((K)))e Brandon's phony Inauguration, Trump's 2nd Impeachment, a horrible year of pathetic "leadership" from every single elected official in Washington DC, a war in Eastern Europe - and NOW, at long last, a federal judge in Florida ends the mask tyranny with one simple ruling from her bench.
