Of Course, Virginia Should Have A Confederate History Month…

…every state that was in the confederacy should have one in my opinion. It’s an important part of the history of those states and most importantly, the Southern soldiers who honorably fought and died defending their homes in the Civil War deserve to be honored just as much as those who died in every other war. Whatever you may think of the plantation owners and the politicians, the soldiers who fought in the field for the South don’t deserve to be tarred with the same brush.

Now, it was a mistake for Bob McDonnell to leave out a mention of slavery from his Confederate History Month proclamation. Perhaps he thought it unnecessary since it’s not exactly like it’s a hot political issue. Republicans have always been opposed to slavery and even Democrats have eventually come around on that issue. In any case, since he’s rectified that oversight, what’s to complain about?

Granted, some people are shouting “racism” over Virginia’s Confederate History Month, but what else is new? As far as I can tell, it’s pretty much the same group of race hustlers who never stop shouting racism. If they weren’t claiming this was racism today, they would have found something else tomorrow even if they had to make it up from scratch, the way the liberal Democrats on Capitol Hill did when they falsely claimed the N-bomb was dropped on them when they walked through the Tea Party on Capitol Hill. It’s like the “Little Boy Who Cried Wolf.” At a certain point, you just stop taking the race hustling poverty pimps and their allies in the media seriously because you’re lucky if there’s one wolf who actually shows up for every 50 times they tell you to look out.

Last but not least, I suspect that there’s an unspoken reason that McDonnell’s proclamation bothers liberals. You see, the last two Democratic governors didn’t celebrate Confederate History Month, but now that a Republican is in office, it’s back. In other words, it’s a painful little reminder to liberals: What you do today may not remain in place tomorrow when you’re out of power. That’s a lesson the Left would do well to remember in the coming years.
