On December 3, 1918, the S.S. George Washington set sail on a historic and uniquely ironic voyage, one that would cap a history of ironies for the ship that had briefly served as a German luxury liner. Noted for ferrying the rich and the famous across the Atlantic, this steamer was the third-largest ship in the world when it was launched 10 years earlier, in 1908. It was built in Germany by the German shipping line Nord-deutscher Lloyd, but, with the outbreak of World War I, the S.S. George Washington was seized by the United States, and for the duration of the war was used as a troop ship to carry U.S. soldiers to Europe to fight Germany and the Central Powers.
At the Red Pill Expo, Alex Newman had a chance to speak with the one and only General George Washington (professional reenactor) and asked him about his role in the founding of our Republic. Washington tells Alex that the two pillars this country was founded were morality and religion, and that there many men in our capitol today who want to see them removed. He also explains that for civilians to maintain our Republic , they must understand the “science” of government, i.e. the cause and effect.
Students at Virginia’s venerable Washington and Lee University School of Law are demanding that they be allowed the option of receiving diplomas un-graced with images of the university’s namesakes, America’s first president, George Washington, who was an early financial backer of the university, and Confederate General Robert E. Lee, who served as president of the university from 1865 to 1870 (then called Washington College), and who is buried in a chapel on the campus of the school.
