It would be nice if the charlottesville protesters and counter protesters cared more about taxation (since its theft), central banking, war on drugs, endless war, police state, drone strikes on citizens, gun control, mass deportations, eminent domain, inflation, or anything government because it's slavery. Yet they riot over something as insignificant as removing a statue of a general.
I honestly don't care if the statue stays or is removed. Both the Union and Confederacy were pro slavery. Lincoln believe in that that blacks were a lesser species and if he could unify the country without ending slavery he would do it. He only ended slavery in the south and he did that so he could gain extra manpower and support from abolitionists. Lincoln was a racist lying tyrant. The union buried down huge portions of the south and many innocents in Sherman's March to Sea. Farms and buildings were burned, women raped, and innocents killed. They also did most of the offensive battles. Not to mention the involuntary conscription and any resistance was suppressed, such as the case of the New York Draft Riots (at least it was intentionally anti-draft, though eventually it was a race riot).
Here is some pro slavery and racist Lincoln quotes:
"Our republican system was meant for a homogeneous people. As long as blacks continue to live with the whites they constitute a threat to the national life. Family life may also collapse and the increase of mixed breed bastards may some day challenge the supremacy of the white man."
"If I could save the union without freeing any slave, I would do it."
“I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in anyway the social and political equality of the white and black races – that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race. I say upon this occasion I do not perceive that because the white man is to have the superior position the negro should be denied everything.”
Of course the confederacy did the same, they did offensive battles as well. They had conscription as well. The also had a much larger slave population. And many KKK terrorists groups came from the confederacy, such as The first Grand Wizard of the KKK, General Nathan Forrest, who ordered or allowed the killing 250 innocent laborers and black soldiers at Fort Pillow. Or the prison camp of Sumter, that was 514 acres and help up to 31,000-45,0000 prisoners with almost no food or medicine, and being killed on site if you leave. Around 13,000 died in the camps of diseases and starvation.
Both Antifascists (fake anarchists, really just control freak communists in disguise) and fascists are authoritarian psychopaths. It is worth noting that not everyone there was antifascists or fascist to be clear. Both sides started violence and infringed on the right to peacefully assemble and speak. Both ideologies killed and completely enslaved millions with death camps and forced labor camps.
Ultimately slavery never ended though, now instead of being slaves to a private individual, you are a slave to the government and its order followers (police and military). Every law is enforced by the death penalty, since if you don't comply and resist arrest with defensive force, you are killed. It is impossible and not a virtue to be a law-abiding citizen. Thousands of new laws are created every day just at the federal level. The Nazi and Soviet citizens were law-abiding too when they were sent to the camps and had their property stolen in WW2. All cops and soldiers are house slaves who enslave and often kill their brothers and sisters for a paycheck.
Well, I am a free being, no matter what anyways says. I would use force against anyone who would do violence against me, including lethal force if necessary, even if you are a cop or solider if I think I had the chance of winning. I don't obey a law if I don't like it and I don't care if it is illegal (almost everything is illegal anyways). I don't need the police and solders to "protect" me by enslaving me with taxation and fake laws. I will defend myself.
It's just more divide and conquer as always. Race is a pointless things to fight over. They are probably both funded to created a division, to decrease our free speech and assembly/movement rights. Its never been left vs right, its freedom vs slavery. I'm against all authority. There is no authority but yourself.
