Stone Mountain Georgia is the heart of the Klan, heart of the Confederacy and the heart of race hatred and antisemitism in America. A dozen militias swore to defend Stone Mountain with armed fat whiteguys, MAGA-men if threatened but on July 4, there must have been a monster truck rally somewhere nearby.MAGA-men in Lansing, Michigan
None could be found when the black folks came, and come they did and they brought guns. Whitey doesn’t like it when they face guns.
IN PICTURES: From ceremonies to cross-burnings to marches, the history of the Confederate monument on Georgia's Stone Mountain is inseparable from that of the Ku Klux Klan and white supremacy. #ConfederateMonuments#ConfederateTakeDown

Millions each year flock to Stone Mountain, one of Georgia's most visited attractions, which memorializes three men who advanced a system of subjugation against Black people.

The U.S. government struck over a million silver Half Dollar coins in 1925 to help raise funds to carve the Stone Mountain rebel memorial. The coins depicted Lee and Jackson on horseback.The Grand Army of the Republic, the U.S. Civil War veterans’ organization, lobbied extensively but unsuccessfully in 1923 and 1924 to prevent the issuance of coins they said honored traitors.
Removing the offensive carving now would be an appropriate and long overdue tribute to the loyal men who sacrificed so much to keep the world’s only experiment in republican self-government intact.
The establishment of an expansionist foreign power at the Mason-Dixon Line and in control of the vital Mississippi River would have been an existential threat to the survival of the free states. Defeating the insurgency was a matter of national survival, regardless of anyone’s feelings about African slavery.
This was an excellent demonstration of a well regulated militia operating under the intention of the founders. The carving in that rock is hideous and wrong upon first sight. As soon as I see it, I am angry because what the hell. Who would do that ?
I believe there is even christian verse that states carving into rock or sacred stone is Bad. Exodus 20:25
So, I love it when the comfortable get triggered nowadays. That is a horrible carving, for so many reasons, I could make a 2 year art history course of it exploring what art is and what art is not.
Like all our other wars, the civil war was because of the central bankers. Lincoln said he was fighting to preserve the union and would fight if it abolished slavery or preserved it. Ironically, it was the banksters who had Lincoln killed.
When I lived in Atlanta since the late 90s, nobody had seen the KKK in years. With the FBI informants being one third of their 3000 national membership, the Feds were one third of their budget. The last study that I saw had the leaders of all but one of the seven or so Klan groups were FBI informants. Stone Mountain had been a quiet tourist place for several decades now. The Sons of Confederate Veterans had their annual service there with never any problems. There were no race problems to speak of in Atlanta in the last 20 years. It was a black opportunity Mecca. The city has had a black run government. But BLM is on the march. I wonder if it is going to be a new kind of Klan. Once it is done lynching statutes and getting a lot of press, when they run out, what will they go for next?
