“We believe this plan lays the groundwork for many encouraging and fulfilling years ahead in the arts, culture, humanities, Danville’s history, education facilities, new partnerships, inclusion and community engagement."Levin highlights the word "inclusion" and concludes: "Seems like all of these stories are about inclusion."
You've got to shake your head, wondering how presumably educated people of presumably reasonable intelligence can equate REMOVAL with INCLUSION.
The only conclusion I can reach is that they're being deliberately dishonest. It is totally disingenuous to say confederate symbols are in a "steady retreat." They are the targets of a steady, Stalin-like "cleansing" campaign. They are purposely being erased.
Levin further sez, "Throughout the South public institutions are taking steps to remove or move Confederate Battle flags for reasons that are obvious to folks who understand its long history from the Civil War to Civil Rights and beyond."
No. The battle flags are being removed by people, often from elsewhere (Anna Brodsky, Cara Burton) who have little to no understanding of the South, its history and its denizens -- people who want to foist their leftist ideology on the culture at large, and separate a people from their history and heritage. That's what leftism does.
