The Battle of New Orleans: David Duke expects Confederate statue defenders to mass on Sunday

Source: Washington Post

“The Battle of New Orleans,” they call it — the statues’ defenders and detractors alike. And it may all come to a head Sunday, as plans for rival demonstrations provoke pleas of “reinforcements” from across the country.

Last week one of these monument defenders held court with a loaded AR-15, several replacement magazines as well as a holstered handgun. Hoping all will remain peaceful as Jazz Fest closes out and thousands of music lovers pass through that area.

1. Of course, the actual Battle of New Orleans was the last battle

of the War of 1812 and had nothing to do with the Confederacy, which didn't exist yet. But that's neither here nor there; these cretins are going to kill somebody sooner or later.

4. Once again an idiot Repuke being completely ignorant

about history.

Only assholes like Duke would start shit like this during Jazz Fest, 2nd biggest event besides Mardi Gras.

2. Hopefully violence won't break out, but who knows?

Maybe 200 years from now, historians will mark this as the first shots in the Second American Civil War.

Let's hope not.

5. I'd quietly point out that the phrasing they're using is loaded.

 

Calling it 'The Battle of (wherever)' is priming war thinking.

Sure is a lot of war priming these days, particularly American versus American.

I'm sure that's entirely coincidental and is nothing to worry about. Heyyyy, isn' t it about time we have another thread in GenDis where we talk about which groups of people we hate the most?

BE AWARE OF WHAT YOU READ. THERE IS A WAR FOR YOUR THOUGHTS ON AND DU IS JUST ANOTHER BATTLEGROUND FOR IT.
