Antifa Protest Planned At Gettysburg

When did our flag become unwanted and despised in our Country? I don’t understand what would drive an American-born person to burn the flag in public. I guess that’s the only way these people can get attention.

Antifa are planning to protest at Gettysburg National Battlefield on the anniversary of the historic battle and burn Confederate flags on a historic day.

Harrisburg100 reported:

Over the past few weeks, several US cities have been a hotbed of controversy over the removal of several Confederate monuments. After decades standing sentinel over New Orleans, the last of four Confederate monuments have been removed after being labeled as “Monuments of Racism and Hate”. New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu said of the removal of his city’s monuments: “To literally put the Confederacy on a pedestal in our more prominent places—in honor—is an inaccurate recitation of our full past, is an affront to our present and it is a bad prescription for our future”. The next state to follow in the footsteps in the movement is Arizona, where leaders call for the swift removal of six Confederate monuments around the state…

…A local group of self-proclaimed anti-fascism activists called “ANTIFA” are planning on holding a rally at Gettysburg National Battlefield on July 1st in protest of President Trump and asks it’s members to “Bring and Burn Confederate Flags”. The reasoning behind why this group picked the date and location for their rally is for the importance Gettysburg played in the American Civil War. The Battle of Gettysburg started on July 1, 1863, when Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia met General George Meade’s Union Army of the Potomac. During the three-day battle, about 165,000 soldiers clashed in and around the small town of Gettysburg. When the Battle of Gettysburg was over on July 3, 1863, 51,000 soldiers were casualties (killed, wounded, captured or missing) in what remains the largest battle ever fought in North America. There are approximately 1,328 monuments, markers and memorials that stand in both the cemetery and battlefield to commemorate the Union and Confederate troops who fought there.

In removing any monument or marker of history, to what purpose does that serve? History in every corner of the world while oftentimes ugly and heinous, still serves a purpose. It is a remembrance to learning from our past and not condemning ourselves to repeat it.

However, as these groups of the far left devolve further and further into disgusting, anti-American displays, they push more and more Americans to realize which party truly has American interest in their hearts.

    It’s still the same old story. The blacks want to rewrite history. You can’t change the past. You can only do what’s right about the future. Those monuments are to remind us that we don’t want past actions to be repeated. History always repeats itself when true history is not taught. Parents need to check their books the kids bring home from school. They would be surprised what’s in them.

    Anti-fascism activists called “ANTIFA” that’s laughable, anti-American is closer the truth. Fascism is characterized by state control and extreme nationalism. That’s were we’ve been under BHO for the past 8 years!

    The NAAP & a Arizona State Democrat Rep. wanted the Governor to take down our mouments & flags. They said they offended them. I found the Reps. email and ask him if the Democrat Party offended him because the had the slaves and the Republicans didn’t? So far no answer.

    So history can just be rewritten, and whatever parts offend someone can be obliterated? Who says so? How can this be? Doesn’t anyone want to take this on, all the way to the SC? Let’s do it!

    Many things are being done by the minority groups with no room for input. Not good.

    These people are so delusional. I am thinking that they are thinking that if they can remove a flag, or a monument, or any other thing that comes into their crazy, mixed up heads, that history will go away. BUT it really doesn’t matter what they remove, the history is still there. And you can’t change that; you can’t turn that around! You cannot undo something that has already happened. Again, people no matter what you remove, it will not change history. Only God could do that, and I don’t think He ever will. A mere human cannot do something this powerful – change the history of this nation. Or any other nation. History happened, and a lot of people lived to tell about it. So, you see, you can’t change it!

    Never Remove Confederate Monuments! It is OUR history–you can’t change that or deny it! Those who wish it to be forgotten can’t undo it despite the fact they wish to. What do they wish to gain–it is their history TOO,, look how far we have all come. Stiil have a way to go but one day we will all unite.
