Washington Post

President Donald Trump praised the Confederate general Robert E. Lee whilst asking African-American voters to "honor us" by voting for him at an Ohio rally which included an unexpected and provocative monologue on America's Civil War history.

Addressing an open-air rally of around 4,000 supporters, Trump appeared buoyant as he declared that Lee was a "true great fighter" and "great general." He also said Abraham Lincoln once had a "phobia" of the Southern leader, whose support of slavery has made his legacy a heavily contested and divisive issue...

Standing before a super-sized American flag suspended between two diggers, the president listed his achievements whilst redoubling his attacks on his traditional opponents in a rally which exceeded an hour in length. He described Democrats as "the party of the mob" and said of the media: "We've learned how to live with them. We don't like it, but we've learned."

Supporters gleefully chanted Trump "Trump! Trump! Trump" and "Ka-va-naugh! Ka-va-naugh" during the event, whilst booing in reference to the media and Democratic politicians whom he accused of trying to stymie the Supreme Court nomination of Justice Brett Kavaugh.

Yep, shit's been so bizarre lately that it had me questioning my own sanity, or sense of reality.

No matter what happens, i think its going to take a long long time for the USA to get over the division and chaos that trump has caused. A lot of his supporters seem completely mindfucked by his influence. His racist supporters think they are now supermen, and some of his christian supporters seem to think he is some kind of divine leader, or some weird shit like that. And some of his other supporters seem to take gospel all the damn lies he tells about being a self made man and some kind of great business mind. eyepop disbelief confuse nutty

Oh, and about the topic? Fuck the confederacy, and fuck Robert E Lee ! And me as a black man, i will never vote for trump, or anyone who supports him. Fuck em all!

And as always, sorry for some of the language. Hehe...

Rest in Peace Bettie Boo. See u soon.

You know it's laughable when never reads anything or posts FACTS trolls with arguing civil war minutiae. shake


Trump's speech threatened to reignite a highly divisive debate over America's racial history with just weeks to go until the midterms. Trump has previously defended statues commemorating Confederate leaders, tweeting last year: "Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our beautiful statues and monuments." Critics say such statues glorify historic advocates of slavery.

Ulysses Grant was not the only Ohio-native whom Trump deployed as a foil in his wider cultural war. He also referenced astronaut Neil Armstrong, telling crowds: "He's the man that planted the flag on the face of the moon ... there was no kneeling, there was no nothing, there was no games, boom" in a reference to NFL athletes kneeling in protest during the national anthem.

Robert E. Lee and Slavery

: https://www.encyclopediav...nd_Slavery


Robert E. Lee was the most successful Confederate military leader during the American Civil War (1861–1865). This also made him, by virtue of the Confederacy's defense of chattel slavery, the most successful defender of the enslavement of African Americans.
🤓
try checking out historical facts on the matter. lee was also a slave owner and most possibly a late night rapist/molester of the female enslaved.
