Blacks and their supposed role in “growing Texas” are being honored by a monument to them in Austin. This, in a time when Confederate monuments, even those dedicated to heroic gentlemen like General Robert E. Lee, are being pulled down at the behest of blacks and their pet ‘White’ lickspittles.
At the dedication ceremony, a small group of protesters from a group called White Lives Matter clashed with a group called Smash Fascism Austin. The ‘Smash Fascism’ crowd shouted ‘No Nazis here‘ and ‘Nazi Scum!’ at the pro-Whites. Amusingly, the ‘Smash Fascism’ mob said their purpose was to “drown out the [Whites’] message of hate.” With what? Anti-White hate messages, like ‘Nazi scum‘? Irony, anyone?
Austin has long been a cesspool of liberalism and general counterculture lunacy, with the slogan ‘Keep Austin weird’. Over the last few decades that city in particular has been invaded by people from everywhere but the South, so that it has become increasingly ”diverse” and increasingly detached from reality and sanity. It has certainly become detached, too, from its actual roots, from the heritage of the earliest Texas colonists and from its Confederate, Bible belt traditions. It is in a sense not the same city, but a universe unto itself. I am sure the ‘Smash Fascism’ brownshirts represent the new, ‘weird’ Austin, and not the historic Austin. If these deluded people could be transported back in time to Austin, or any part of Texas, as it was a century, or even half a century ago, they would flee. There would be no place for them in the Austin of the past, in a time which did not tolerate the intolerable. They would be appalled that their anti-White message would mark them as deranged and possibly dangerous. Which is what they are.
I have happy memories of the Austin I knew as a child, but that Austin is gone, perhaps forever, thanks to the ugly scars of leftism and its policies — and the engineered demographic changes.
As for the ‘contributions’ made by black people in “growing Texas”, whatever that awkward phrasing means, name some of them. The articles I read mention vague things like ‘exploration and emancipation’ — were there black explorers involved in that part of the world? I’m not aware of one, and I did study Texas history in school like all schoolchildren did. Were there black crew members with the Spanish or French explorers? I guess Whitey blotted those adventuring black explorers out of our racist textbooks. Yes, that’s it.
Emancipation? Blacks were passive recipients of that; it was not done by their own initiative or effort unless slave uprisings involving killing their masters count as ‘winning’ emancipation.
The ‘White’ protesters who spoke out against their fellow Whites as ‘hateful’ are the usual dupes whose prideful self-image is based on their getting offended on behalf of others — a very odd thing, when you stop and think about it. These people are aberrant in their tendency to feel aggrieved on someone else’s account, and feeling compelled to denounce their own heritage and ancestors to side with people who care nothing for them; less than nothing. And they truly cannot see how twisted and weird this is.
Our heroes and heritage are being pulled down while the perpetual victim groups are being honored at our expense. The protesters who showed up to speak up for their own folk are to be commended, and maybe they are a harbinger of our people regaining their voices and their courage to speak up for their own interests — and not just for our selfish interests but because the Truth matters.
The left has hijacked the idea of ”justice” and perverted it to mean nothing more than revenge and payback. Real justice honors that which is deserving of honor; it honors merit and achievement and accomplishment. It rewards that which excels; it does not exalt as a means of compensation for alleged past wrongs.
