Given the events in this country of late I have to say …It;s just so fucking stupid!
There I said it.
I don’t care which side you or on, whether you hate President Trump, whether you are ANTIFA or whether you are a white nationalist. ,and ask yourself something. Ask yourself who…not what it is you are fighting for.
You have a statue of a man that died over a hundred years ago. Most people don’t know who he is or what he did or didn’t do, nobody looks twice at that statue on a day to day basis, it’s main purpose seems to be a depository for pigeon shit, and you are dying for it. Please tell me, where is the honor in that? The only people who give a shit about your outrage are the people benefiting from it, the ANTIFAs, the White Nationalists and the media who are pulling your strings and playing you like some errant psychopath.
If you want to fight and die for something you believe in I can respect that, but fighting and dying over a statue covered in pigeon shit? There is no honor in that. If you want your life to mean something fight for something meaningful, something honorable.
Ray Charles could have seen what was gonna happen in Charlottesville, when I saw the news the day before I said to myself and my friend…This isn’t going to end well, two armies whipped into bloodlust by media reports, looking for a fight, they found one and some people got badly hurt, one died. There is no honor in that, it’s just stupid.
If you want to risk your life, make it mean something, make it count.
