Alabama Democratic Senate nominee celebrates bravery of Confederate soldiers in TV ad

Published

on

Democratic nominee for Senate G. Douglas Jones released a commercial Oct. 31 called “Honor,” in which he salutes the courage under fire of Alabama’s Col. William C. Oates.

Oates commanded the 15th Alabama Regiment when it made five unsuccessful charges July 2, 1863 up against the slopes of the Little Round Top at the Battle of Gettysburg. The 20th Maine Regiment, commanded by Col. Joshua Chamberlain held the position even as the Maine men ran out of ammunition and followed Chamberlain in a bayonet charge against the Oates and his Alabamians.

Despite the loss, Oates and his men became legendary in the South for their devotion to their cause, as the unit suffered 138 casualties out of the roughly 400 soldiers who marched  25 miles in 11 hours in order to join the fight that day. One of the dead was Oates’ brother John, who was wounded and died in a Union field hospital.

Jones released the ad at a time when there is a national debate about whether Confederate soldiers should be memorialized at all.

Cities like New Orleans and Baltimore have removed Confederate memorials, and monuments and statues to the Southern soldiers have been vandalized and the focus of protests.

In the Jones ad, the Democrat draws on that conflict between Oates and Chamberlain to make a greater point about political discourse today.

“What brought those two brave men, one from Alabama and one from Maine, together was war—two sides believing so strongly in their cause that they were willing to die for it,” he said.

“Those times are past, long ago, and our country is better for it. But now we fight too often over other matters,” he said.

“It seems as if we’re coming apart. I want to go to Washington and meet the representatives from Maine and those from every other state not on a battlefield, but to find common ground, because there’s honor in compromise and civility,” he said.

“To pull together as a people and get things done for Alabama.”

WOW: Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey Caught LYING UNDER OATH about Censorship in Senate Testimony

This is damning.

Published

on

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is giving testimony to the U.S. Senate today after being subpoenaed over his social media monopoly’s brazen censorship and electoral interference with regards to leaks of Hunter Biden’s embarrassing personal information from the laptop from hell.

Things are not going well for Dorsey, as Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) has pointed out. He noted, ironically in a tweet, that Dorsey lied under oath while giving his testimony on Wednesday.

Dorsey told Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) that anyone can now share the Hunter Biden stories from the New York Post on his platform. Individuals on Twitter soon went on Twitter to prove in real time that he was lying.

Other clips from Dorsey’s appearance before the Senate are not much better, as the disheveled tech CEO fluttered in the limelight.

Big League Politics has reported on Twitter’s aggressive role in suppressing the Hunter Biden story, which could be seen as a form of electoral interference considering the censorship campaign is being perpetrated in large part to help his father’s presidential hopes:

A day after censoring the New York Post for exposing Hunter Biden’s emails, Twitter has doubled down by censoring a newly published article that explains Hunter’s crony and possibly illicit business dealings with China.

“Twitter is censoring us — again,” announced Post editor Sohrab Ahmari in a tweet.

“This is what I — an editor at America’s oldest continuously published newspaper, founded by Alexander Hamilton — get when I try to post our follow-up story on Hunter’s financial shenanigans with the Chinese regime,” he added.

When Ahmari attempted to post the article, he received a “Tweet Not Sent” notice that read as follows: “Your Tweet could not be sent because this link has been identified by Twitter or our partners as being potentially harmful. Visit our Help Center to learn more.”

The Post report details Hunter’s interactions with a powerful Chinese energy firm. The revelations in the article indicate that Hunter was receiving millions from Chinese interests because of his name. The Biden campaign is attempting to ignore the scandal while the Big Tech overlords attempt to keep the news from going viral.

“There is no need for comment on any so-called information provided by Rudy Giuliani,” Biden lawyer George Mesires said.

“He has been pushing widely discredited conspiracy theories about the Biden family, openly relying on actors tied to Russian intelligence. His record of dishonesty in these matters speaks for itself,” Mesires added.

Dorsey should be punished to the fullest extent of the law for lying under oath. Big Tech is a bigger threat to democracy than the Russians could ever hope to be.
