Gettysburg – that hotbed of White Supremacy

Gettysburg – that hotbed of White Supremacy

Joe Biden isn’t the only person whose brains have turned to applesauce. Folks suffering from End-Stage Trump Derangement Syndrome are so far gone, they should have “MOTT’S” stamped on their foreheads.

Yesterday, President Trump tweeted that he has narrowed down the locale for his nomination acceptance speech to either the White House or Gettysburg.

I vote Gettysburg.

What a perfect backdrop from which to deliver a speech at a time when our nation is once again so deeply divided.  As Lincoln said in his Gettysburg Address, “Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure.”

We are facing this test once again in 2020.  Can we endure? Can the nation founded on the “principle that all men are created equal” survive the divisions of our present age?

This is why, when I saw his tweet, I was delighted at the idea of Gettysburg.

But for the Trump-deranged, the President choosing this iconic historical site was “proof” of what a Confederate-loving White Supremacist he is.

Yeah.  Really.

Gettysburg, this site of the battle that turned the tide of the Civil War and handed the Confederacy a decisive defeat, is now considered a hotbed of White Supremacy by the Trump-deranged clowns of the ResistanceLOL.

Are they serious with this?

Ooooh! It’s a dog-whistle!

Honestly, these people are retarded.

If President Trump gave a speech at Bastogne – the town at the center of the Battle of the Bulge which turned the tide of WW2 against Germany – these idiots would accuse him of choosing Bastogne as a dog-whistle to Nazism.

I don’t know if they’re genuinely this dumb or if it’s just the latest example of the ResistanceLOL Law of Opposition – which is “whatever Trump endorses, these sad, miserable people will come out against it.”

It used to be a joke.  You know, “Trump could cure cancer and these guys would attack him for putting oncologists out of work.”

But now it’s clear that, like the Law of Gravity, the ResistanceLOL Law of Opposition is scientific fact.

In November 1863, Abraham Lincoln closed his brief Gettysburg Address with these words:

“that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

At this point, I believe their disgust in the choice of Gettysburg has more to do with the fact that the ResistanceLOL desperately hopes we perish.

    Visiting Gettysburg is without a doubt one of the most moving events in my life. Standing atop Cemetery Ridge and looking across the fields to the tree line where more than 12,000 Confederate troops began their march into destiny (Pickett’s charge), my senses filled with the sound, the taste and the fury of the battle. If I was ever to believe in ghosts, it would be there: I could feel a presence around me on those grounds unlike any I have ever experienced. And then add to it all is Lincoln’s famous address; as remarkable in its simplicity as in its overpowering sentiment. Every American should visit Gettysburg. Every school child should memorize that famous speech.

      Agree. I’ve been there twice & even took friends of mine from England there. They were very moved and impressed.

    I truly do see that the #1 prize all along for the Dem-Socialist-Commies has been the removal of the Constitution, so Trump having his nomination acceptance speech at Gettysburg is fitting indeed.

    Res Ipsa Loquitor:
    “Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth, on this continent, a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived, and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting-place for those who here gave their lives, that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But, in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate—we cannot hallow—this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they here gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
