"those who do not study the past are doomed to repeat it."George Santayana

At right, you see a statue of General Robert E. Lee.

A favorite saying all through my young years was " The South shall rise again".

Consider this action:
Vandals took a torch and toppled four 197-foot radio towers that are part of a seven-tower cluster in Black Canyon City, authorities said Wednesday.The damage has been preliminarily estimated at "millions of dollars," said Susan Quayle, a spokeswoman for the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office.Knocked off the air was KMIA-AM (710), a Spanish station in Phoenix. It broadcasts ESPN Deportes, a sports-talk format that launched last month.

You see, I had a very truthful History teacher in High School. This was the late 50's, and Blacks had not yet figured out that they were "Victims".

He taught that the Confederacy rose because of dictates of the Federal Government. It was NOT about slvery. That was drawn in as part of an appeal to those less energetic about pressing the Civil War in 1863.

After the War, Licoln wanted to "Forgive and Forget". Another approach was "Let's teach 'em a lesson". After Lincoln was killed, Northerners put the latter approach into action. A law was put into effect that " Anyone who had served or given aid or comfort to the Confederate Army will not be allowed to vote". So who could? Former Slaves, and other black people. For about 20 years "Carpet Baggers" (Northeners who corrupted the elected Black legislators, and were awarded contracts for goods, highways and other projects that were never delivered or got done) held power.

Blacks were then relegated to second class citizens. and the worse thing you can be--now-- to a Southerner is a "Yankee". This term is spit out like a bitter taste just came into the speaker's mouth.

To rectify the balance of power, a group rose up. We now know that group as the Klu Klux Klan.

So, what has this got to do with someone taking down a Spanish language station?

In our time, the Federal Government has ordered the officials to are SUPPOSED to keep out illegal immigrants NOT TO TAKE ACTION. We are asupposed to sit there and take it.
Seems to me like someone isn't sitting there anymore, and certainly not taking it.
