The Maryland Senate voted Thursday to remove references to the Confederacy from the official state song and replace the controversial portions of the historic anthem with a verse from a meaningless poem that has no merit or relationship to the TRUE past of Maryland.
The 38-to-8 vote by spineless politicians came after a protracted debate about how Maryland should address its painful past.
Painful to Whom?
Supporters of the bill said the song titled "Maryland, My Maryland," written by James Ryder Randall in 1861, is not unifying and does not represent the NEW Maryland.
A formless, isomorphic entity with no history, no scars, no struggles, no past. It is NOW a Maryland devoid of a soul, history, families, folklore, ties to anything that might in any way offend anyone.
Maryland's history, is being erased to ecstatic applause. Just like the applause that rang out at the appointment of Adolf Hitler as German chancellor on January 30, 1933. It was a NEW Germany just like now, it's a NEW Maryland.!
In the NEW America everyone is happy all the time because NO one is allowed to upset anyone on the special list. The special list is the protected class, the upper class, those that are MORE equal then others.
The worst part of that is that it is only the beginning. Soon, all ties to America's past will be erased and replaced with fake, plastic, whitewashed images, portraying how happy the New America is thanks to those who were brave enough to erase it's past.
ISIS/ISIL in the middle east is doing the same thing. It is blowing up ancient monuments, historical buildings, burning artifacts all so ISIS/ISIL can remake the middle east in their image.
Randall wrote the song "Maryland, My Maryland" while he was upset over the death of a friend who was shot while protesting Union troops as they marched through Baltimore. It calls for Marylanders to take up arms and join the South in its battle against the Union! For those with weak hearts look away because the song even calls Northerners "scum," and describes President Abraham Lincoln as a tyrant.
OMG! such harsh words. I'm going to need my University to immediately create a safe space, provide intense biweekly therapy and I'm going to need Federal government to pay all my bills since I'm not going to be able to work for the foreseeable future. Those words were too much for my fragile vegan, nonspecific gender, fluid sexuality mind to handle or process.
Randall's feelings, those feelings of the other Southerners who lost family members, businesses, monies, estates, titles, jobs, etc. are of no consequence to the NEW Maryland. The NEW Maryland has nothing to do with the OLD, WHITE, CHRISTIAN, SOUTHERN, Maryland, no not at all. The NEW Maryland is kid friendly, anti-white, pro-homosexual, pro-Islam, pro atheists, with a Planned Parenthood on every corner and a 24hr Pharmacy that carries Plan-B abortifacient on every shelf.
The bill passed by the Senate on Thursday calls for some of Randall's lyrics to be replaced with a verse from a poem written by John T. White in 1894. The bill now moves to the House for consideration.
"I think it's time to get rid of the verse that basically criticizes and makes us look bad," said Sen. Ronald N. Young , D-Frederick. "The [song] is degrading to Maryland and should not represent us moving forward."
Opponents of the bill had their FACEBOOK accounts deleted and were summarily branded White privileged, Homophobic, Religious Fanatics, who are Hateful Bigots and most likely Cis-gendered inbreds Conservative Republicans...
