Yet another example of Republican Christofascism.
http://www.cnn.com/2017/05/22/politics/s...index.html

Quote:4(CNN)A Mississippi Republican lawmaker has apologized after calling for the lynching of politicians who approve of the removal of Confederate monuments.

State Rep. Karl Oliver expressed his frustration over the weekend with a growing movement to get rid of monuments that critics say celebrate slavery.
"The destruction of these monuments, erected in the loving memory of our family and fellow Southern Americans, is both heinous and horrific," he posted on Facebook Saturday. "If the, and I use this term extremely loosely, 'leadership' of Louisiana wishes to, in a Nazi-ish fashion, burn books or destroy historical monuments of OUR HISTORY, they should be LYNCHED!"

Where are the calls for him to resign? This fucker needs to be out. Also, it's amusing how closely the Christofascist worldview resembles that of ISIS, or Saudi Arabia.

Translation: When ISIS does it, it's the most horrible thing ever.

We do it, and it's just fine and dandy.

RE: Yet another example of Republican Christofascism.
"I'm too tired to be bothered to try to intellectually defend or debate Confederate (read: in celebration of treason) monuments, so instead I'm just going to advocate for the most stereotypically racist form of mob violence, in effect proving the point of everyone who wants to take down said Confederate monuments."


Boy howdy, that sure sounds fucking stupid as hell when you spell it all out, now don't it?

So getting rid of monuments that celebrate slavery is Nazi-like? Wonder how that guy would name removing monuments dedicated to Red Army after 1989.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

Chances are he would have no idea what you are talking about. His view of the rest of the world is hindered by the gleam from his rebel statues.

You might be right on this one.

This is a yankee misconception. It's like saying that the "rebel" flag is a racist flag, or a symbol of racism. I find this particularly humorous when Yankee's see black southerners with a confederate flag https://www.youtube.com/embed/snGlGGvsB0s . or when they learn about Jim Limber Davis or about blacks who fought for the south.

I am in no way making a justification for slavery. I am however sick and tired of this narrative that all or even most southerners owned slaves. This is in itself a bigoted view, and a distortion of history.

The monuments are not about the glorification of slavery, rather it's about honoring those who died defending their homes. Again most of those who fought and died did not own slaves.

Why exactly I should believe - or care about for that matter - your interpretation?

RE: Yet another example of Republican Christofascism.
No sense of irony with this guy, eh? I mean... He's calling for people who want to remove monuments dedicated to slavery... to be lynched? Rolleyes

Hey BlkFnx, why were the South so damn keen on slaves that they went to war over it, if slavery was such a non-issue? Do *please* correct my misconceptions of history Smile

RE: Yet another example of Republican Christofascism.
My only question is - At what point did a flag, which stood for the fight for states rights to own slaves, inspired and flown by Southern Democrats fighting against a union headed by a Republican president, become a Republican icon? Huh
