Lee was a great man. And his place n history should not be destroyed simply
because the negroes do not like him. He was a Virginian. Any pile of
(expletive) in the state who can order his statue removed is -- nothing but
"... If the Union is dissolved and the Government disrupted, I shall return to
my native State and share the miseries of my people, and, save in defense will
draw my sword on none..." --- Robert E Lee.
Later that year, Lee cautiously accepted the presidency of Washington
College. Because of his leadership of the Confederate army, Lee worried he
"might draw upon the College a feeling of hostility," but also added that
"I think it the duty of every citizen in the present condition of the
Country, to do all in his power to aid in the restoration of peace and
Lee incorporated the Lexington Law School into the college, encouraged the
development of the sciences, and instituted programs in business
instruction that led to the founding of the School of Commerce in 1906.
He also inaugurated courses in journalism, which developed by 1925 into
the School of Journalism (now the Department of Journalism and Mass
Communications.) These courses in business and journalism were the first
offered in colleges in the U.S.
He also established an informal code of conduct that led to today's Honor
System. "We have but one rule here," he wrote, "and it is that every
student be a gentleman." He oversaw the construction of a chapel that also
housed his office, and a new home for him and his family. The former
became Lee Chapel, which the University still uses for events and
ceremonies and which has a museum. The latter became the Lee House, and
the president and his or her family still live there.
Lee died on Oct. 12, 1870, in his home in Lexington. He and his wife, Mary
Custis Lee (a great-granddaughter of Martha Washington)
Here is the chapel he built for the University.
There appears to be a burial memorial there for
everyone to see, but they say he was actually
buried beneath the chapel.
The total ignorance of History in this
present generation is freightening
There should be mandatory American History
courses to get any degree.
I support the militant right for drawing
a line in the sand that they will no longer
give into a bunch of fucking snowflakes.
I think they should distribute book covers
and huge posters with Robert E Lee's portrait
on them. They should have scheduled movies/videos
on the campus of Robert E Lee's legacy.

The Village Idiot here says - in typical Village idiot honesty and candor:
"The total ignorance of History in this present generation is freightening
Yet again, it is most clear that he the Village Idiot is once more
describing himself the Village Idiot, inasmuch as he the Village Idiot has
himself the Village Idiot said such historical gems as:
- Shakespeare was a Catholic
- King Henry VIII commissioned the writing of the King James Bible
- The Ottoman empire extended to almost all of Europe
- Abraham Lincoln drafted Catholic nuns to serve as nurses in the Union army
- The United States is the first nation to abolish slavery, centuries before
the next nation to do so
- St. Paul brought Christianity to Iran
- The Johnson amendment was passed in 1954 to silence churches critical in
1964 of US commitment of military troops in Vietnam.
- The state of Washington is one of the "confederate southern states."
- "It literally cost a fortune for Columbus to come to America. He had to go
where the gold was...the King and Queen of Portugal."
etc etc etc
I just love and indeed do much appreciate the Village Idiot once again
describing so accurately his very own self!
ha ha ha
And now, of course, having yet again entertained us the Village Idiot will
further entertain us with his same-o same-o boring Intellectual Coward ploy
to run away, of course with his tail between his legs, back into that deep
dark dank same-o same-o hole of his under his rock!
