Hey guys, big surprise: she’s falsely reporting success in that SC discussion. Furman faculty has been making short shrift of her smacking sounds. Meanwhile she digresses about honoring Erwin Rommel & the German soldiers of WWII.The "she" referred to here is Yours Truly.... See for yourself who argued from emotion (liberals, "Furman faculty," and assorted anti-flaggers who respond with cascades of emotion and without a single neuron firing) and who dispassionately presented facts, and even rational, common-sense opinion ...
Also note that it wasn't I who "digressed" -- it was one of the ring-leaders of the hyper-emotional liberals, James Scott, who introduced the Nazis to the conversation with his totally irrelevant reference to the SS. (Anybody surprised Mousy Tongue didn't mention that? I thought not.) I threw some facts about it at Ol' James and he responded soooo predictably.
Elizabeth Herring -- James Scott They are only championing honoring the war dead. This is only a debate over a flag that flies on the Civil War memorial.
James Scott -- Elizabeth Herring When do you plan on honoring the SS war dead?
Connie Chastain -- James Scott the SS was not the German Army. Many people DO honor the German Army of WWII and its war dead. Field Marshal Erwin Rommel was respected by both sides. I'm surprised you don't know this. But you have to be an objective and fairminded person to separate those fighting for their country from those oppressing others. You apparently haven't developed such a capacity. I have huge respect for U.S. armed services even when I scorn the unconstitutional missions their mutant government sends them on.
James Scott -- Connie Chastain So Hitler's army also comprises heroes of yours. This is not necessarily a revelation to me. However, I would point out that Field Marshal Rommel was implicated in the plot to assassinate Hitler and end the war, so at least he showed some integrity, albeit not until it was almost too late anyway.
Connie Chastain -- James Scott, sorry, no. I only recently learned about Rommel from a woman in a chatroom I was a member of. Sorry to burst your hate-bubble. BTW, Rommel also disobeyed orders to kill Jewish soldiers and civilians, and treated POWs humanely. He was never accused of war crimes. This info is easily available online, for people who can see past their hate enough to read it.
Now, lets look at this. Reporting what a former chat-room member said about Rommel, and what Wikipedia says about him, in the super-saturated, indoctrinated mind of James Scott equates to making heroes of Hitler's army? How does a reasonably knowledgeable person come up with such nonsense?
It appears Ol' James scurried to look up Rommel and found out about his involvement in the plot to assassinate Hitler, and conceded that he "showed some integrity." I guess Rommel's earlier humanity in refusing to kill Jewish soldiers and civilians, though ordered to, and treating POWs humanely, do not add up to "showing some integrity" in the indoctrination-steeped mentality Scott clings to.
When confronted with this kind of sheer hallucination, I have to wonder.... Do the James Scotts of the world really not know they are lying? Or do they actually believe the garbage they spew? Watching Scott in action on that thread, one almost visualizes not a flesh and blood human person, but some computer algorithm popping up programmed responses, but for the mountain of emotionalism underlying their responses..
But Mousy Tongue / LibertyLamp / Hecate Crowley / Crowley Hecate / Inglourious Basterd / AnonBorg and (who knows how many other fraudulent profiles she goes by)) has no such excuse. She may be indoctrinated, but she's not so far gone that she can't tell when she's lying.
And she is lying. Of course, telling the truth ... lying ... it's all the same to leftists. Whatever serves their agenda of destruction....
Note: When I say I only recently learned about Rommel, what I mean is that for most of my life, until the last ten years or so, I had a view of him as a stereotypical Nazi, and nothing more. I was aware that he was involved in a plot to assassinate Hitler, but I knew little about it, nor did I know about his humanity as a soldier, until I learned things about him online. But you have to be devoid of integrity to equate learning a little about Rommel with making heroes of the German army.
