The crybaby SJW’s (Social Justice Warriors) have found a new hate object – Civil War re-enactments. As most of you are already aware, the 153rd Anniversary of the Battle of Cedar Creek, the last major action in the Valley, was partially ruined thanks to a bomb scare. And what’s worst about it is, this was one of the few battles in which the Union won.
This battle had more to do with Lincoln’s landslide victory in 1864 than any other military action in the War for Southern Independence. See, through much of 1864, Lincoln was no guarantee to win re-election. So much so that he did not run on the Republican ticket, but formed a new political party and ran on that ticket. Even though Sherman had taken Atlanta by this time, there were many who still believed that Lincoln would lose. However Sheridan’s great victory, and what became known as “Sheridan’s Ride” captured the imagination of the North, and that propelled the Lincoln re-election.
Quite frankly, the fact that some angry SJW who didn’t want to see people learn about their history should not come as a shock. Even an MSNBC prognosticator could have predicted that some nut would try and plant a bomb. However this time, the SJW’s seem to have gone too far. Thousands upon thousands of disappointed spectators were grumbling, and many of them Democrats, saying how they felt cheated that their kids had to miss this fun event. Re-enactments are great gun for families and the re-enactors alike. Re-enactors (for the record I used to be a re-enactor back from 1986-1991) teach about history which is not taught in the history books, and do so in a way which brings real life to the masses. Re-enactors humanize the massive casualty lists. And people of all races and sexual orientations and political leanings love re-enactments. So much so that all I heard on Saturday from my Democratic neighbors was grumbling about how “these stupid snowflakes ruined their day” and how they were embarrassed that the SJW’s have gone off the rails this time.
However bomb or no bomb, the re-enactment went off – not 100% the way it was supposed to, but it still went off. The re-enactors decided in a moment of unity to re-enact the battle – and then afterward – North and South, shook hands. This generation, of whom many cannot handle any opinion which differs from them, should look at our re-enactors and their behavior this weekend – we can learn many lessons from them, and not just on the Civil War.
