Progressives are Leading the Charge to a Brave New Dystopian America

This is what we've come too in America.  Below is a White Toddler with a Flag, now branded by the left's craziness as a symbol of White Supremacy.  While at the same time members of Antifa are seen as freedom fighters by most on the left and the Trump-hating media.

And before I forget, has anyone noticed that all the confederate monuments coming down are in those cities where the mayor and city council are controlled by Democrats.  And even in those communities, not once have the people been allowed to vote on the decision.  It's seems that none in the MSM have felt the need to point this glaring fact out---not even FOX News.  Why don't the political leaders who have seen fit to tear down history by removing monuments of fallen soldiers at least offer to give them to smaller communities where such historical reminders of the past would be welcome.  The answer is really quite simple---Democrats hate them and want them destroyed.  What's next?  Burning books in this Brave New Dystopian America.
So while we still have the freedom to offer tributes to fallen heroes I offer the below on R.E. Lee and his war horse Traveller. 
Robert E. Lee on Traveller
The best description of Traveller was Lee's own, which he wrote in response to Mrs. Lee's cousin Markie Williams, who wished to paint a portrait of Traveller: 

If I was an artist like you, I would draw a true picture of Traveller; representing his fine proportions, muscular figure, deep chest, short back, strong haunches, flat legs, small head, broad forehead, delicate ears, quick eye, small feet, and black mane and tail. Such a picture would inspire a poet, whose genius could then depict his worth, and describe his endurance of toil, hunger, thirst, heat and cold; and the dangers and suffering through which he has passed. He could dilate upon his sagacity and affection, and his invarible response to every wish of his rider. He might even imagine his thoughts through the long night-marches and days of the battle through which he has passed. But I am no artist Markie, and can therefore only say he is a Confederate grey.

I should add, that General Lee's beloved horse, is buried close to Lee's family crypt  in Lexington, Virginia on the campus of Washington and Lee University.

Even as the liberal hate for Lee sweeps the nation, their wrath has extended to his beloved horse Traveller.  With those at USC seeking to change the name of the horse that the Trojan mascot rides at the home football games.  Never mind that horses name is spelled different---Traveler.  

A madness is sweeping across the nation.  A madness, I fear, that will our nation once again to a great civil conflict.  But this time, unlike last time---my side will have more guns.
