Back in April, Charlottesville City Council voted to get rid of the Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee statue that stands in their local park. There was an injunction that prevents the city from doing so for about six months. However, guess who had a problem with it? You're right, a bunch of haters.
So over the weekend, a few dozen torch-wielding protesters showed up in the Charlottesville’s Lee Park to protest. These fools were chanting “You will not replace us,” “Russia is our friend” and “Blood and soil.”
The Blood and Soil chant comes from Nazi philosophy:
Blood and Soil (‘Blut und Boden’) was a very important philosophy for Nazi Germany. The issue of ‘blood and soil’ nearly split the Nazi Party after 1925 and was only resolved at the Bamberg Conference of 1926. One side of the Nazi Party wanted to emphasise the relationship between true Aryans and a rural life. Hitler believed that true Germans ‘came from the soil’ – that they had a family background based on farming and life in the countryside. However, men like Gregor and Otto Strasser wanted to move the party away from the belief in ‘Blut und Boden’ and move towards a policy of attracting more support in urban areas. The Strasser brothers were defeated on this issue and Hitler rallied his supporters around ‘Blut und Boden’ while Otto Strasser left to form his own party based outside of Germany. Gregor was murdered on the Night of the Long Knives.This stupid protest was lead by Richard Spencer, the King of Losers
Nothing was accomplished, the statue will still be removed.
