Talk about a backfire.

During the aftermath of the tragedy in Charlottesville, Virginia last year, a concerted effort was undertaken by the  liberal left in order to deface, destroy, or otherwise negate eliminate Civil War monuments that were dedicated to those who fought and died within the Confederacy.

At that point in time, activists were staring down a list of nearly 240 monuments deemed to be of the Confederacy.

Now, they’re looking at well over 1,000.

In the year since the violent Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Aug. 12, 2017, about 75 Confederate memorials have been renamed or removed from public places across the nation, according to a study by the Southern Poverty Law Center, a civil rights group.

That’s in addition to another 40 or so that were erased in the year after a white supremacist opened fire on a Bible study group in Charleston, South Carolina, in 2015.

But today, the law center’s list of public Confederate memorials – monuments, place names, symbols, holidays – is 237 entries longer, at 1,740, than in 2016.

That’s because the same outrage that led to the removal of some memorials has led to the identification of others. Confederate sites, most of them established long ago, are being discovered faster than they’re being removed.

This is certainly not the outcome that the left expected when they decided to travel down the dangerous path of historical revisionism, but it does prove the point well that the truth will win in such sire situations.

Furthermore, if we are to truly remain free, we mustn’t relegate any lesson from our history to a lower status than another.  We’ve developed this nation as a response to all stimuli, and we could not have reached plateau without the low points of the Civil War left intact for us to draw from.
