"Why Are You Going To Put Up A Statue For The Losing Side?"
Good question. But we fear that the answer lies in the fact that the South seems to have won the mythology battle. (No thanks to you, D.W. Griffith.)
Still and all, things do change — and a year to the day that a bowl-headed jackass killed nine people in a Charleston, South Carolina, church, the Confederate flag is still under siege.
We cats say, good. Besides, in what other country would the emblem of rebellion be as honored as the Stars and Bars are in certain quarters today? Please. The Confederacy was a traitorous rebellion against the United States of America. What more needs to be said?
And memo to Donald Drumpf: Don't think you can reverse this tide. Whatever supporters of yours who are middle-aged white men with a high-school education and (probably) an opioid addiction — well, they're either going to be dead soon, or too incapacitated to participate in the electoral process. Should we cats PURR? We're thinking that Thomas Jefferson would say, probably not.
