The old guy with the beard here is Solomon Mick, my great-great grandfather. He was a Civil War veteran—with the North, with the Union, with the United States.
His brother, Clinton, was a traitor who fought with the south.
Solomon never spoke to Clinton spoke again, and they lived only about 30 miles apart, and both lived a long, long, time.
Solomon’s granddaughter, Goldie—my great-aunt—once told me that if she thought she had a confederate ancestor, she’d be so ashamed she’d cut the vein and let the traitor’s blood flow out.
Rebel, Nazi, alt-right, white supremacist, Trumpist, dumbass, redneck—all are sickening traitors and all need to be defeated. Most of the statues need to come down. People need to be finally educated.
America needs to cut the vein, finally.
