Cultural Genocide in Lexington, Virginia–what else is new?
by Al Benson Jr.
Cultural genocide against white Christians has almost become so commonplace that most folks don’t even notice it anymore and it’s just as bad in the South, if not worse, than in many other places. The cultural genocide promoters are beginning to feel at this point, with the leftist political slant so obvious now in Washington, that they have it within their grasp to completely eradicate Confederate and Southern culture if they just push a little harder, just get rid of a few more Confederate statues, change the names of a few more streets from Stonewall Jackson Blvd. to Malcolm X Avenue, and get rid of any Confederate flags or symbols in any and all institutions of learning, then they can erase all memory of Confederate and Southern history–all except for the slavery issue. That one has to be kept alive because the hope for some sort of future reparations is still down the road. All they have to do is to promote a little more white guilt and the silver will start to flow–right into their pockets. You have to realize that if there are ever any reparations paid they will not go to ordinary black folks, they will be paid to the race-baiters and those who know how to deal the race card off the bottom of the deck. That’s really what it’s all about for them–fleecing whitey!
Recently, at Washington and Lee University, several black students entered the chapel and felt "uncomfortable" with the Confederate flag, with its St. Andrews Cross hanging in there. I don’t know what their agenda was (I can guess) but they went to the head of the school and complained.
The president of the school, Mr. Kenneth Ruscio, apparently is even beyond being politically correct. I get the impression from what I’ve read that he almost tripped over his own feet getting over to the chapel to get those "evil" Confederate flags out of there. Needless to say, there has been considerable protest against his eager willingness to play the politically correct "fearless leader." Not that he cares, because, like most of those in leadership positions in colleges and universities nowadays he has been so imbued with the "white guilt" syndrome that he can’t wait to do the bidding of the leftist black radicals. He’s their boy, all the way!
I wish I had a dollar for every letter that Mr. Ruscio has gotten about this situation from Southern patriots. I could probably take a trip to Mexico and back–if I could ever fight my way through the hoards of illegal immigrants to get there, or somehow manage to get through the Border Patrol checkpoints which seem more interested in harassing American citizens than in catching illegals. But I digress.
At Washington and Lee University you can tell the agenda is definitely Cultural Genocide. A 15-year old youngster, who had come with some people that were protesting what the university had done in removing Confederate flags, assayed to go into the chapel at the university because he just wanted to see the chapel and the grave of Lee’s horse, Traveler. The youngster observed: "As I began to head for the Lee Chapel, a police officer stopped me and said that I could not enter the campus property with my Battle Flag or any images of Confederate flags on any of my possessions including my clothing. I really wanted to pay my respects to General Lee and Traveler so I had to turn my shirt inside out, take off my hat, and take off my badge. When I finally arrived at the chapel there was a sign on the front door saying that the Lee Chapel was closed for the weekend."
Folks, I ask, isn’t that just a bit extreme? But, then, leftist cultural genocide is never anything but extreme–after all, when your agenda is the destruction of white, Christian culture, you can’t afford to do it by half-way measures–you’ve got to go all the way, and if you can’t get it buried deep enough, it might just rise up and haunt you.
Understand, when these black radicals prattle about "love and diversity" and "multiculturalism" there is no room for you in all that. You are supposed to be gone, eliminated, or at least marginalized to the point where you don’t dare say anything. That this is part and parcel of the agenda of most schools nowadays should be evident from what has gone on at Washington and Lee University recently. The Marxist radicals feel they are in the ascendancy so there’s no room for you. Since this is the position that Washington and Lee University has taken, I’d suggest that anyone planning to send their kids to that school might want to think twice and possibly choose another school–unless you are prepared to surrender your cultural identity for a mess of "racist" pottage.
