The Greatest Degeneration Vs The Greatest Generation

Let me apologize up front if I ramble a bit on a subject so abhorrent to me.

Following President Trump’s press conference at Trump Tower on Tuesday intended to inform the media about the President’s infrastructure executive order, reporters began to pepper him with combative, hysterical questions:

Do you think that what you call the alt-left is the same as neo-Nazis?

Does the statue of Robert E. Lee stay up?

Are you against the Confederacy?

How concerned are you about race relations in America and do you think things have gotten worse or better since you took office?

Mr. President, are you putting what you are calling the alt-left and white supremacists on the same moral plane?
You said there was hatred, there was violence on both sides?
The neo-Nazis started this thing. They showed up in Charlottesville to protest —
What do you think needs to be done to overcome the racial divides in this country?
Mr. Trump made the mistake of claiming, “there is blame on both sides.”  Some in the media declared his statement was “offering aid and comfort to racists and extremists.”
As Daniel Payne so succinctly said, “We are lurching from one shrieking, insane media episode to the next.  And it is wearing on all of us, and weakening the bonds of fellowship between common Americans.”
Two journos went a step further equating Antifa, radical left-wing thugs and self-described anarchists who heave urine and feces-filled balloons, attack the defenseless and attack women with Americans belonging to the Greatest Generation who stormed the beaches of Normandy to defeat the evil menace of Nazism.
The only conclusion one can logically arrive at is the press poodles are resistant to admitting Antifa is violent because they support it.
Daniel Greenfield noted, “Extremists want to eliminate the consensus of civil society. They want to destroy the idea that there’s any solution except violence through confrontations that show the helplessness of civil society.”
On Fox’s noonday program, Outnumbered co-host Melissa Francis, broke down in tears over her fear of honestly discussing the chaos in Charlottesville.  “I am so uncomfortable having this conversation.  I know what’s in my heart and I know that I don’t think anyone is different, better or worse based on the color of their skin,” Francis said, wiping away tears. “But I feel like there is nothing any of us can say right now without being judged.”
Francis choked up responding to comments by Fox’s Juan Williams and Marie Harf suggesting that Trump was defending Nazis and KKK members when he said counter-protestors shared blame for the fighting.
Progressive liberal protesters are increasingly clamoring for the removal of statues and monuments honoring Confederate soldiers and leaders.  What’s next?  The Jefferson Memorial?  The Washington Monument?  The Christ The Redeemer statue in Rio De Janiero?  Bank ATMs which dispense dollar bills honoring a slave owner?
In George Orwell’s dystopian novel “1984,” a quote from one of Orwell’s characters warns how “every book has been rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street and building has been renamed, every date has been altered.  And that process is continuing day by day and minute by minute.  History has stopped.”
