Once Aryan Skynet Goes Live It Doesn't Matter Who Pulled The Switch
Stone Mountain, for those unfamiliar with it, is a massive monument to the heroism of the Confederacy that features the images of Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee, and Stonewall Jackson and constitutes the world’s largest bas-relief sculpture. The site in Stone Mountain, Georgia, was once a center of activity for the rebooted Ku Klux Klan but has in succeeding decades been maintained as a park by the state of Georgia in cooperation with the private Herschend Family Entertainment syndicate, which beams laser light show kitsch-fests onto the face of the monument during the summer months.
Not even these crass heights of ritualized abuse are sufficient to satisfy the social justice warriors of America, however. In the wake of the Charleston shooting event and the prefab to-do over Confederate banners, anti-racist activists recently appeased by the lowering of the Confederate flag from the South Carolina Capitol grounds and further emboldened by the Memphis City Council’s vote to remove Nathan Bedford Forrest from his resting place are now demanding not only that Stone Mountain’s Confederate standards come down, but that the images of Davis, Lee, and Jackson be erased from the face of the monument itself. “Those guys need to go,” says the NAACP’s Richard Rose. “They can be sand-blasted off, or somebody could carefully remove a slab of that and auction it off to the highest bidder.”
Sons of Confederate Veterans spokesman Ben Jones, who played Cooter on the Dukes of Hazzard TV show and later represented Georgia in Congress, said Confederate flags honor Confederate soldiers and their descendants. He called attacks on the flags a form of “cultural cleansing” reminiscent of efforts by the former Soviet Union to “destroy all vestiges of your enemy.”
Jones also questioned how far efforts to remove Confederate imagery will go, noting that the carving on Stone Mountain depicts Confederate military and political leaders.
“What are you going to do, dynamite Stone Mountain?” he asked.
Jones might not be far from the mark, as there is no end, seemingly, to the extremist lengths to which those fired by the toxic egalitarian ideals du jour are prepared to go in order to further their dystopian vision of post-America. A compromise position finds expression in a MoveOn.org petition initiated by dedicated but politically pluralist rap aficionados:
Now hip-hop fans have started a petition to change the face of Stone Mountain by adding Outkast to the memorial, with Big Boi and Andre 3000 – riding in a Cadillac – added to the three Confederate leaders on horseback. When it reaches 2,000 signatures, the petition will be delivered to the Georgia State House, the Georgia Senate and Governor Nathan Deal.
“By no means do we wish to erase or destroy the current carving, which, regardless of its context, is an impressive and historic work of art,” states the the […] petition. “We simply wish to add new carvings, of Atlanta hip-hop duo Outkast, to the mountainside. There’s plenty of room.”

Locally, the face of the movement to expunge traditional (i.e., European-derived) southern culture from Stone Mountain is rotten Georgia peach Shannon Byrne, who maintains the site iamthemountain.org.
“I’m from Stone Mountain, and I’ve never liked that it was a place so synonymous with the Klan,” said Shannon Byrne, a 1993 graduate of Stone Mountain High School who regularly hikes up the mountain.
“I feel ashamed that the park would fly the flag,” Byrne added. “The park, of all places, with its history with the Klan, should be even more sensitive.”

Her site is “like sniffing salts for the soul,” comments “journalist” Nico Isaac, presumably with reference to cannibal zombie bath salts. Byrne is a typically deracinated wastrel of her generation and can think of nothing better to do with her life than to destroy the symbols of her people’s history and glory and celebrate their demographic decline and enswampment. Her iamthemountain.org features videos of the multicultural oddities she encounters while hiking on Stone Mountain, among them a sensitive, tire-toting new age black man named Tyrel and a burka-clad black Muslim who calls herself Sakeenah. The interviews comprise an illustrative sampling of the exotic fauna swarming over Stone Mountain and other, surrounding areas currently undergoing Zimbabwefication.
All of the videos are titled with the names of Byrne’s friendly interviewees – all, that is, except for one insultingly captioned “Confederacy of Dunces”. Her site is worth visiting once if only to watch this encounter with an engaging, dignified, and articulate southern gentleman who, even after this shameless ethnomasochist has attempted to provoke him by calling his people’s flag “disgusting”, has the patience to explain his devotion to his ancestral legacy and its relevance to the prevailing tyrannical order of today. He further explains that, for him, the Confederate flag is about more than southern pride. It demands the questioning of illegitimate authority, and the gentleman even mentions in this context his concerns about the dubious official explanations of the JFK assassination and the 9/11 attacks. The flag, in other words, remains the symbol of the rebel of independent thought, national ideals, and courage.
As for the movement, far from over, to remove Confederate and other distinctly European-American names and paraphernalia from public places and popular entertainments, this program’s true colors are revealed, ironically enough, in words spoken by George Clooney in the trailer for the hypocritical Zionist war propaganda movie The Monuments Men (2014):
If you destroy an entire generation of people’s culture, it’s as if they never existed […] and it’s the one thing we can’t allow.
