King Solomon, Racist Symbol, the Democrat Party

Not terribly familiar with John Kass, a columnist for “The Chicago Tribune”, but scatterwisdom links to one of his columns, one I think we all need to read. It puts this absurd debate over Confederate Memorials into a more enlightening perspective.

scatterwisdom’s post and Michael Wilson’s comments are also highly instructive.

When you read Kass’ column, carefully consider the quote at the end.

Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book has been rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street and building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And that process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right. — George Orwell. “1984.”

Is this the kind of world we want to bequeath to our children and grandchildren, an endless present run by egomaniacs who will tolerate no dissension or criticism.

Does that sound ridiculous? Look at how the Democratic Party now operates in lockstep. Republicans peel off and vote against the party, but if a Democrat does that that Democrat may as well become a Republican. There is something very odd about that.

Consider another quote.

I am not a member of any organized party — I am a Democrat. — Will Rogers (from here =>

Today Rogers would not be able to say that. Yet consider what the reference for that quote says about Rogers.

Ch. 9 “Rogers was a lifelong Democrat but he studiously avoided partisanship. He contributed to the Democratic campaign funds, but at the same time he frequently appeared on benefit programs to raise money for the Republican treasury. Republican leaders sought his counsel in their campaigns as often as did the Democrats.” ~ P. J. O’Brien

Today Democrats detest the Republican Party way too much for that sort of tolerance. They are too busy looking for any excuse to call Republicans racists.

In My Opinion

I surmise King Solomon, after studying and reading the news about the Charlottesville and Confederate Statue controversy might apply the best answer with this Ecclesiastes verse. 1:17 

And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit.


And I gave my heart to know wisdom,…. Which is repeated, for the confirmation of it, from Ecclesiastes 1:13 

I applied my mind to study and to explore by wisdom all that is done under the heavens. What a heavy burden God has laid on mankind! 

 and that it might be…

  1. I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and still have strong ties to the area. John Kass is a well known fixture and local legend. While I would not call him a true conservative, he speaks plainly, honestly, and has one of the best BS detectors in journalism. Great article, thanks for posting.
