I was reading through the Facebook page of my local channel 9 news station and I came across the article they did about Heather Heyer’s (The poor woman who lost her life in Charlottesville Virgina) Mother and her refusal to speak with Trump after she saw him on the news and heard his own words. There were 162 comments on that article and a huge portion of them were denigrating the woman, accusing her of being paid off and a number of other insults were heaped at this poor mother who recently went through the horror of losing her daughter to hate. I just don’t understand how people can be so filled with hate and Anger. You don’t fight hate and anger with hate in anger it never works and it’s a horrible thing to propagate.
I also can’t believe how well that south has done at selling the story of the Lost Cause of the Confederacy So many people, even people who have never been to south have bought into this narrative that the south fought a heroic battle against great odds. It has definitely had a lasting effect on our social conscious. The Confederates were not heroes they were enemies of the state and they should be remembered for that alone.
