Maoist America

Battle Creek, Michigan has always been a Leftist town. It was one of the major stops for the Underground Railroad and home to Sojourner Truth. With Spiritualists and Communists and much labor agitation to boot, Battle Creek was always a progressive town. It is one of the homes of the Seventh Day Adventists. 


Battle Creek got its moniker from a scuffle between land surveyors and an Indian who charged out of the woods to attack them. No one died. No one was hurt. Just a scuffle. In the early 1900s, the Battle Creek residents put together a city seal that depicted a surveyor beating off the Indian with his rifle. 


Since the 60s, the City re-imagined its seal. But there is this small stained glass window in the Second Story of city hall where the old seal is still promulgated. 


The City is now going to remove the seal. 


Nine months or so ago, an Hispanic City Commissioner started on a screed of "You stole this land", and attacked so-called white privilege, white oppression and white supremacy. She ended her screed by saying this stained glass window has got to go! (I protested her outrageous speech, was removed and three months later charged with Loud&Boisterous, and given a 275 fine.) 


What I see is a depiction of an historical event. Just that. This offends Liberals. 


Next door to us is the city of Kalamazoo, MI. It just removed its Pioneer Fountain which showed a Pioneer and an Indian together from their central park of Bronson Park. This is also akin to the removal of Confederate memorials throughout the South! The Liberals are on a mission---a Mission of Destruction. 


What we are witnessing is Maoism. Just like Mao in his Cultural Revolution, his followers went around destroying the heritage of their own country and then these young people began killing their parents and teachers! What we are witnessing in America is the same thing---the destruction of our heritage--a cleansing of our artwork from the body politic!  The Liberals are engaged in a Maoist cleansing of America of its European struggle and heritage. 


Welcome to Maoist America. The Liberals are Maoists. Their hate towards inanimate objects. It is all part of a Hate campaign. They talk about Tolerance. Is there tolerance toward our heritage?  No. They talk about Multiculturalism. Do they leave our culture alone?  NO. What about Free Speech. Is not the Window at City Hall---Free Speech?  


They dump a crucifix in a glass of urine---offend millions of Christians----THEY DON'T CARE---and call it Free Speech. They burn the American Flag---offend millions of American patriots----THEY DON'T CARE. But showing history and a people honoring the struggle and sacrifice of their forefathers---AND THEY ARE OFFENDED---and they go into hyperdrive to destroy. ......All their previous stances is of no concern. ....they don't regard their own previous stands! They don't have to obey anything they say about others. Calling them 'hypocrites' doesn't affect them; they don't care.


Liberals are showing themselves as totalitarians who speak lies. It is all a lie and a joke. They are on a cleansing mission. Just as Hispanics produce nothing but murderous Communist movements from the Shining Path in Peru, a Maoist organization, to the Sandinistas, to the Cubans, and to the Failed State of Venezuela. Hispanics like Flores show the future of America---and that is Venezuela. America is sick. This removal of the Stained Glass artwork is disgusting; it is a betrayal of our forefathers and the honoring of our forefathers and shows the spinelessness and yellowbellied cowards of the cuckolded whites of America. Todays White Americans have NO business inheriting the fruits of their forefathers. America is the land of cuckolds and cowards. America is dead and gone replaced by Maoists on a murderous rampage. After they are done removing our artwork, we are next on the agenda. Jamaica went on a bloody rampage killing all whites two hundred years ago. Another hundred years ago, the Brazilian leadership ordered---ordered  all whites to divorce their spouses and marry colored people. 


The removal of the Stain Glass window, a small, insignificant piece of artwork, is them showing who is in control and telling Europeans---your days are numbered. It is about putting Europeans in their place. It is about destroying Old America---and replacing it with their socialist Maoist Totalitarian utopia (...and that is why they need an Hispanic electorate).

“What I see is a depiction of an historical event. Just that. This offends Liberals.”
I’m a conservative and I think the stained glass should go.  For starters, the way in which we took land from Indians was one of the ugliest (if not the ugliest) parts of our nation’s history.  Condoning the practice by making the surveyors look righteous and the Indians look crazy, is not the type of art I want to see on public buildings.  The glass should be removed and sold to the highest bidder.  That way you preserve whatever historical value you think it has and not make each citizen of Battle Creek guilty of this ugliness. 
Besides, if it was just a depiction of a historical event, why do you care so much about it to write this article?  In comparing such a trivial piece of glass and benign debate to something like Maoist China, I think you crossed a line.  We should be able to debate in this country without making our opponents out to be Hitler or Mao Tse Tung.

Ms Foley has some advice for ol Lindsay about stained glass depictions vs actual history and meaning of same.  Perhaps like with Confederate "memorials," there wasn't overt racism, but just "remember who's boss." Like native American can't figure that out.  But remember, for rightist like Lindsay, you always need a "boogie man" to raise rightist hackles and get their knees jerking, so just mention Mao, Stalin, but not Putin or Kim ILJung.  It gets real funny, but after decades of cold war, and screaming "If you don't love everything about 'Murrica, move to RUSSIA.  Ts now find Russia our best buddy.  Something wrong with this picture? 
Lindsay Wheeler Added Jul 16, 2018 - 7:37pm
Here is the story of the event left on the Facebook page of Commissioner Kate Flores about the city seal
Lupe Garcia I researched the battle, 2 hungry Potawatomi raided a surveyor camp.The surveyors returned and grappled with them. One surveyor sat on one the other got hit by a rifle. The battle happened nowhere near Battle Creek. At the time I tried to get the seal changed the potowatami didn't have the influence they have now. My efforts were met with the attitude commissioners use when they listen to most citizens. If you can't tear down the statue of Washington you can't remove the city seal.
So what you have here is not racist---but a theft in action. There is nothing racist there. But to make it into a racist act---is evil and immoral. These people are making an agenda out of this. These people are reprobates!

They might as well be killing a lot of parents now at least those who have a heart.  Turning against our heritage and our history is like ISIS going into historical areas in Syria or Iraq and destroying thousand year old temples and historic monuments.

Let's go a step farther. Let us forget completely for a moment, that by and large, the vast majority of the "Hispanic Population" is every bit as Eurocentric as the white American male, based on the influx and influence of the Spanish Conquistadores and their conquest of the Americas. Let us forget that not a single nation in the world is without periods of enslavement and enslaving others in its history. Let's forget that not even one nation in the world has failed at some point in time to be an aggressor to obtain "foreign soil". Let's forget our human history in every aspect of evil and only memorialize the "kumbaya moments" and pretend we have a history as a loving and caring race ... species if you will. 
Let's just wipe the slate clean of all the bad things and pretend they do not exist ... what could possibly go wrong? 
Jeff Michka Added Jul 17, 2018 - 9:36pm
"foreign soil," Ward?  You mean like the US buying the PI post SpanAM war, or just the Spanish possessions the Spaniards gave us in Treaty of Paris?  Does anyone you associate with in PI talk about how their families are descendants of Spanish nobility?   How has America's colonial empire worked out?
MEFOBILLS Added Jul 18, 2018 - 12:33am
Thought experiment.  If you could go back to 1965 and prevent the treasonous Hart-Celler "immigration act" from passing, would there now be "hispanics" agitating to have the stained glass history removed?
Also, lets consider the hypocrisy of the "hispanics" who have no blood relation to North American Indians.  The Mestizo's now invading North America are of Aztec/Spanish ancestry.  Aztec's never ventured north, or they would be slaughtered by North American Indians. 
opher goodwin Added Jul 18, 2018 - 5:17am
I am against the removal of history but all for the development of sensitivities that show empathy towards the pain of others. People have feelings and those feelings should be taken into account.
The history of how the Europeans practiced genocide on the Native Americans is a great stain on Europeans and I think that needs admitting and reparation made in some way.
The way forward is always through dialogue.
Having a window like that so prominently displayed must be like a slap in the face to the Native American Community. Perhaps a museum is the best way forward.
Likewise with the confederate statues, which represent a culture that is no longer acceptable, a compromise can be found. One cannot erase the past but one can create a much more balanced view. What we need in my view is an equal number of heroes of a different persuasion to go alongside them - to tell a fuller story.
Bloginton Blakley Added Jul 18, 2018 - 11:12am
The only people that normally pay any attention to statues and monuments are children, historians, and tourists.
If the historical figures these statues and monuments honor are popular, the statues and monuments will remain.  If not they will be vandalized or removed. And pretty much, there ain't jack doodie any one individual can do except, vandalize, repair, or ignore.
I don't really get emotionally connected to monuments or the like. I take this stance because I'm an anti authoritarian, and statues and monuments in general are there to help us forget about all the people that honored authoritarian individual screwed over. They simply are not there to represent history but to provide a common sense of culture, and to sanitize the local history so that the tots aren't horrified by the actual history.  Although the seal in question seems to do a fairly good job of portraying events... but then Battle Creek is a sort of ironic name not given to honor some rich character-pimple.  And the irony of the name is appreciated by people...who tend to like that kind of thing more than remembering the name of the founder, who may or may not have been a nice person.
I mean how many statues of Andrew Jackson do you see killing thousand of Indians?  But in my view that is probably the most important thing about Andrew Jackson, not that he could sit a horse.
So which statues stay and which go, goes back to the idea that popular icons get preserved and unpopular icons get spit upon, spray painted, torn down and urinated on... actually probably all statutes get urinated on at some point.  It's almost as good as peeing on the current president.... I'm told.

Americans and Europeans are expected to be enlightened world citizens, as our culture and forebears are maligned and denigrated. What fills the cultureless void that is created? Selfishness, greed, hedonism, and the insertion of other alien cultures, usually with far more violent histories, and little or no contributions to civilization. 
Kristen Foley appears to make a reasonable argument, that paints Lindsay as an extremist, but the stained glass art is just another instance of our history, heritage, and culture being 'disappeared.'
Taken out of context, this is a small thing, but it is occurring all over America and Europe, and at an increasing pace. Non-white parts of the world have no corresponding activities. 
Just about every ethnic group is entitled to their homeland history, and culture, except for Caucasians. Caucasian territory belongs to all. What is theirs is theirs, but what is ours, is theirs, too. 
Many people believe that the Jews deserve a homeland. The Israelis are working towards taking away the Palestinian homeland, though many believe that the Palestinians need a homeland, too. 
Everyone gets to have a culture and homeland except for white people. Our homeland is community property. We are told that our history consists of violence and exploitation. We are told that we are born racists, because we are white. A lot of well-meaning people buy into that, but they are only useful idiots. 
Some people are sentries that sense that their tribe(s) is under attack. They shout that 'Hannibal is at the gates.' Others, comfortable in their little world, mock those sentries. They would invite the invaders in, as the Sabines did.
History has shown that women of conquered nations, find the invaders attractive, and their own men as undesirable and unattractive. I fear that a non-military invasion is having the same psychological affect on white women. It may also play into their fantasies of being ravished by a conquering barbarian.

Doug, you can run facts and actual history by some people and they will refuse to accept.  People like Hoffman, Jones and MacDonald have built solid cases, with no real counter-argument.
I'm trying to understand the liberal mind.  It does not do just to say Lib-Tard, or Liberalism is a mental disease. (Which it may be in all honesty.)
It takes more.  What exactly is going on with their brain function?
I'm beginning to think they get a dopamine hit when they virtue signal or agitate for some sort of moral imperative.  Emotion is definitely overriding the logic centers of their brain, so perhaps their brains are wired differently.  A large segment of the female population thinks  emotionally like this, so there may be many men who are outwardly male, but have female instincts.
The male sperm count is down to a third of our fore-fathers, and there are estrogen like chemicals in the environment, especially from plastics.  Women are pissing their birth control chemicals into the water, and it does not filter out completely when it recycles in  treatment plants.  There are a number of soy-boys, cucks, and lib-tards in the population now as men become feminized.
So, we can continue with our fact attack, and rubbing their noses in the shit of their own making, but it doesn't matter.  It would probably take a life or death situation to force a "come to Jesus" moment for them.  Basically it would take an extreme emotional stress event for their "female like" brains to re-wire.

Not only the levels of hormones in the water supplies, but anti-depressants are getting to significant levels. The water distribution system, that I managed, did not test for such things, but some larger nearby municipalities did. It is alarming and increasing. 
I hate to see sewer recycled for park irrigation in this town. Although it appears to be a worthy practice on the surface, eventually those chemicals will find their way into the wells. 
I can't imagine the expense of trying to remove those chemicals from wastewater. Next thing you know, they will be found in rain and snowpack.

Well, the banksters are mostly of a single ethnicity, but because of exceptions, I prefer a non-ethnic term, others are more blunt. All of those fabulously wealthy people exert too much influence on our government, against the best interests of the people, and the health of the country.
Some people use terms that you find offensive, but their aims are to make America a better place, just as I'm sure yours are. We all have different ideas of what ails the country, and even more on how to fix the problems. 
I don't have the answers. The answers may be complex and may need to be synthesized from ideas from seemingly opposite ideologies. 
You might be surprised to find you have some partial agreement with people that appear to be far right, at least concerning finance and banking. Bernie seemed to understand, but his handouts are not feasible in this climate, though a universal higher education, preferably a trade school, may be feasible in the future, when we are on a more solid footing. Any such programs should be color blind, quota free, aptitude based, and directed towards actual need, or projected need, in the work force.

In understanding liberals, the first one is the Bible in Ecclessiates chapter 8, where the writer asks to understanding "the madness of the ungodly". What we are experiencing is the "madness of the ungodly". When a Democrat candidate in Arizona says she supports ICE, the audience booed and harassed her viciously. The Democrats are going over the deep end quick. It is becoming dangerous. 
Another is the book by Br. Seraphim Rose, "Nihilism, the Root of Revolution in the Modern Age".

Battle Creek’s city seal is that of a surveyor clubbing a Native American.  I don’t care if the seal is false depiction of the event or happened in some other geographic area, it’s not a very nice image.  I’m not accusing anyone alive today of racism or insensitivity towards Native Americans.  As for what to do about it because it’s an image nobody should be very proud of, why not get rid of it? 
Certainly anyone advocating for such a policy isn’t a akin to arguably the world’s ugliest dictator.   The fact you label people in this manner is exactly what’s wrong with political discourse today.  We should all be able to express our opinions without resorting to being called names.

In the broader context, what is your take on the erasure of other historical monuments.   For example, the recent take-down of statues and even attempts to write people out of history e.g. Thomas Jefferson - because he had slaves.
The next question is why didn't previous generations object to it, and only today's people are being triggered?
Ward Tipton Added Jul 23, 2018 - 10:29pm
I would question how the removal of historical monuments does not equate to the same actions undertaken by extremist regimes around the globe? 
The brits by and large enslaved the Irish, the Welsh and the Scots, and forcefully removed people from their homes to fight the wars of the English. Should we ban all things English? 
The Germanic nations are rife with oppression, slavery and historical abuse by tribes against their neighbors? Should we ban everything from the old Germanic countries? 
The "Hispanic" people are by and large the European remnants of the Spanish Conquistadores and remind us of the turmoil and mass homicide and destruction of even more native American people ... should we ban everything Hispanic or just Spanish? 
There are more slaves in the world today than there were in the entire history of these independent but united States of America ... where is the outrage about this? 
Human history is rife with warfare and oppression, would it not be easier just to wipe out human history altogether as it may remind us that we are often a violent and oppressive species? 
Once you begin to remove history, where does it stop? Where the last guy was offended? Cain?
