Middle-Fingering History


Yesterday the Republican House Minority leader and all around piece of garbage Paul Ryan decided to just sit on his hands and allow a bill to be passed that prevented descendants of Confederate veterans from flying the Confederate flag to honor their memories.

Seems that Stars n' Bars flag elicits too much pain and sadness for those emotionally Frail and psychologically Weak black people and other white guilters to handle

Yep.. Gotta stamp out or completely revise all aspects of that part of our nation's history so these inferior people can cling to their dignity and the nation to move past the 'stain' of slavery..
Except when it is to the blacks' advantage..

Then expect the story of slavery and the Civil War to be told and retold and embellished and exaggerated to the point people will actually believe they suffered through the worst atrocity known to human kind..

We believe slavery in the days of Moses and the Hebrews where the Pharoahs kept them bondage for 400+ years and they had to toil in the hot Egyptian sun was far worse than being slaves in America for less than half that time
History in America has become something you alter,or remove as thoughtlessly as one would alter their breast size or wrinkles on the face..

Don't like a certain era in history or a person or a symbol..  Deleted

Or maybe a certain era or person or symbol is necessary to teach but you don't want to hurt any colored person's feelings..   Ehh.. Just change or delete a few facts, re-shape it and create a new narrative..

It's only History.. That is so Past 
If television, movies and commercials tell us one consistent message, it's that nothing matters in life but this moment or the future because we are all social evolving, accepting and tolerating

Of course the Confederacy did exist as a nation.. it did have both a governmental and battle flag, and blacks were slaves, Happily served their masters and not only were Never beaten but treated so wonderfully that even after they were freed, they stayed with them for the rest of the slaves' lives

Blacks also fought for the Confederacy, some even serving voluntarily under Nathan Bedford Forrest, the greatest Cavalry Commander in North American History and briefly the head of the Klan before he disbanded it for being too violent.
So much history we are Never taught in schools because the Union won the war and to the victors go the spoils of writing, re-writing and distorting history to suit ideological agendas.

Dare you to find one person who teaches history in the public school system to take the time to explain to their class that the Civil War was not fought to free slaves, but because the South got sick and tired of the North putting continual taxes upon cotton and other crops while Wall Street then (as now) dictated what prices the farmers could sell at..

Too boring..

Remember, that parasite Lincoln only made the Civil War a 'moral' fight when it looked like massive numbers of troops tired of fighting for 'Union' looked like they would not enlist

Whatever it takes, right?
History is also spit upon when it comes to movies

Last night we finally saw the Oscar winning film The Revenant starring Leonardo DiCaprio...

It was a very gory and bloody film but very well made..  Problem is the film historically-speaking was complete bullshit.

You see, if one was to make a film about someone mauled by a bear in the 1820s and left to survive and fend for himself in winter conditions after he is abandoned and left for dead, if fictional characters were used, then you're free to take whatever liberties desired to tell an entertaining story..

But when a movie is made about real people who did live and had personal histories of their own, no one can in good conscious alter or distort that just for the sake of a film'
Before we continue, we give a Warning now to readers if you haven't seen The Revenant and plan to do so shortly and do not like ending spoilers, please stop reading now...

For all others, we continue.

So here's how the film ends.. 
DiCaprio's character Hugh Glass is found alive after a tretcherous 200mi trek and returns to camp.

He tells General Andrew Henry the head of the company he works for that Tom Fitzgerald, a man assigned to look after Glass instead decided he didn't want to wait while Indians were approaching.

So instead, he tried to kill Glass and when his half-Indian son made a ruckus, Fitzgerald killed Glass' boy before fleeing

So Henry and Glass go after Fitzgerald..  They meet.. Fitzgerald kills the General, then Glass and Fitzgerald fight and ultimately gives Fitzgerald to Indians who were nearby for them to finish him off.

Justice prevails.. as 'happy' an ending as you're going to get in this time of film...
OK, now the historical truth..

#1 - General Henry was neither shot nor killed -- He lived another 10 years ultimately dying in Missouri in 1832 while pursuing a business in lead mining

#2  Fitzgerald was never shot nor killed by Glass  -- Fitzgerald was not found immediately as the movie indicates but a very long time after when Glass tracked him down in Nebraska when Fitzgerald had enlisted in the US Army.

Because to shoot and kill Fitzgerald would be to attack an US Army Captain, nothing happened but a warning by Glass that if Fitzgerald ever leave the Army, he would assuredly be killed
Hugh Glass was killed, along with two of his fellow trappers, in early spring of 1833 on the Yellowstone River, in an attack by the Arikara Indians

Two historical, real people were given fictitious deaths because well hey, its Hollywood right and if they do it, then its quite OK

Guess that means we could make a movie about Obama's life and A&G can re-write his childhood so for instance depict two devoted black parents instead of he really having one white mother and one negro African piece of shit who abandoned the family
And since we're free to take liberties in a film as long as we say it is "loosely" based on a true story, we can depict Obama as a gay porn star, involved in 3somes, orgies and whatever grotesqueness involving Obama's mouth and anus as he paid his way through law school..

Then we'll have Obama work as a busboy in a nightclub and in the pivotal scene stolen right out of 'Boogie Nights', a Democrat bigwig will be noticing him and ask if he'd like to be President someday?

Obama wearing a halter top and pink lipstick will softly say 'Sure' and eight years later, we flash to his Inaugural Address..    
Of course it would be total bullshit but hey, its Hollywood!  We're just making a movie.. Why should we be forced to actually respect a person's life biography... 

And why should we give a shit about history or any sense of accuracy or fairness in our Obama biography film when so many victim-clinging minorities, PC-do gooders and white guilters do not give a shit about the Confederate flag?

History is not all peaches and cream; its not all happy endings and good triumphing over bad..  

Hollywood distorts our prism of reality so much and in 2016 we've become a nation of emotional weaklings who neither can accept a taunt or tease but face anything painful from our past.

We can't even show 9-11 video of the towers coming down anymore on TV without people just breaking down on the spot or becoming consumed with paranoia and conspiracy..
It is just such a rotten, fucked up world we live in..  

No one respects the past or values the past, assumes all will be rosy in the future, and never accomplishes anything of true meaning in the present..

As driftless and lost as a leaf in water

You can't know where you're going if you don't know where you came from
