Or in this case “Fountain!” While the state burns through the last of the fire fund progressive Democrats, young and old in Helena, find themselves twitter-pated over the recent city commission decision to remove the Confederate Fountain from Hill Park. “Look at us we’re just like the big city folk back east!” Alt-right, alt-left, neo-liberal, neo-nazi, fascist, Christ0fascist all spell the same thing a moribund center that has still not reached the point of telling them ALL to sit down and shut the hell up! But it’s a win because the city just shut the water off to it yesterday. Who’s your daddy now…well it ain’t Jeff Davis cuz us paragons of social justice and political correctness are on the job.
And floating amongst the particulates of the ash filled skies, we have a governor who appears to be embracing the notion that he is a viable 2020 presidential candidate who is tweeting about the removal of the obnoxious monument in Helena and the glaring lack of leadership on the national level as once again our nation wrestles with the sins of our past. Meanwhile, this week marks the end of the careers of a number of state employees who have fallen victim to the cuts in SB 261. Lack of leadership perhaps…or…
But alas the fountain of “hate and racism” that most had no idea existed at all will be erased from the Helena landscape. The skies will open up, the rain will come down, the fires will be extinguished, and there will be no more hungry children in the world because the fountain will be gone.
