Stop being obtuse. You know full well it was a sarcastic title mocking the leftist revisionists.


I even stated that it was hyperbole in the OP.

But some people just can't admit it.


Yes, it is hyperbole meant to play on the emotions of your target audience. As I stated.

Apparently playing-off your title is considered revisionism, even though I did not "revise" anything.

So which is a "race":

A. American.
B. Mexican.
C. Both.



D: Any sentient person from a planet- as there is the 'human' race, there also (for example purposes) is a 'Klingon' race. Since we are the only beings at this moment that we know of in our neck of the galaxy, and Klingons probably don't exist...

Geeze, we're a petty bunch, aren't we. I'm typing this, and realization just came up and smacked me right on the head.

Mexican forces of about 4000, under President General Santa Anna, against a handful of 180 American rebels fighting for Texan independence from Mexico.


gee 180 against a regular army of 4000. Sure the word "heroic" doesn't mean much in your view.
How would you describe the odds?

Not really. Call someone a hero. Don't call someone a hero.

What purpose does it serve either way? It's a word with an emotional connotation and I do not get involved in the "feelsies" of all this. As long as history is not being changed and in this case, it is not.

So what's the problem?

The problem is how people feel about the use of the word.

Why would that matter? Are we going to go back in time and take bets on the odds of the battle?

Since they held up that army at the cost of their lives to give Houston time to ready for battle,they deserve the title of hero.And it was not White Militia,there were also Mexicans who died fighting to defend the Alamo.I am sick and damn tired of the PC crowd trying to change our history to suit their agenda.Hell,some of these people call the British the heroes of the war of 1812.Teach what happened and give credit to the people who deserved it.But don't put a modern spin on it,go by the standards of the country at their time and teach what the countries reaction was.

Let’s drop truth and deal with only with facts. Below are exerts from en.m.wikipedia.org...ópez_de_Santa_Anna

In 1874, Santa Anna explained in a letter that killing defenders of the Alamo was his only option. The letter stressed that Commander William Travis was to blame for the degree of violence at the Alamo. Santa Anna believed that Travis was overly rude and disrespectful towards him, and had that not happened, he would have allowed Sam Houston to establish a dominant presence there. In his letter, he stated that the disrespect of Travis led to the demise of all of his followers, which he claimed only took a couple hours.

On 6 March 1836, at the Battle of the Alamo, Santa Anna's forces killed 189 Texan defenders and later executed more than 342 Texan prisoners, including James Fannin at the Goliad Massacre (27 March 1836).

"Surrender of Santa Anna" by William Henry Huddle shows the Mexican president and general surrendering to a wounded Sam Houston, battle of San Jacinto
However, the defeat at the Alamo bought time for General Sam Houston and his Texas forces. During the siege of the Alamo, the Texas Navy had more time to plunder ports along the Gulf of Mexico and the Texian Army gained more weapons and ammunition. Despite Sam Houston's lack of ability to maintain strict control of the Texian Army, they defeated Santa Anna's much larger army at the Battle of San Jacinto on 21 April 1836. The Texans shouted, "Remember Goliad, Remember the Alamo!" The day after the battle, a small Texan force led by James Austin Sylvester captured Santa Anna. They found the general dressed in a dragoon private's uniform and hiding in a marsh.

To wrap it up a lot of Texans and Tennesseean's died to win the freedom of Texas. We lost a heroic fight at the Alamo, out numbered about 20 to 1, and Sam Houston’s army kicked his ass at San Jacinto.

In my book the defenders at the Alamo were heroic.

Outmanned,outgunned, and made Santa Anna bleed for it.

Texan legacy.

As Davy Crocket famously said 'You all can go to hell, I'm going to Texas?'.

Which is what I think of revisionist history because of 'feelings'.

Race is a social construct ...ethnicity is what that is. Scientifically there is but one race on earth. so by that logic it was not racist.

Sorry.

Leonidas was an islamophobe.





More likely a Zoroastrian-phobe........


Islam did not exist until another 1000 years or so AFTER the 300 had their battle.

Islam = Arabs..........Zoro's = Persians.

One day, Islam will fall to be replaced by the original teachings.

It doesn't give the white people the props and respect they deserve (as they see it) so the SJW are up in arms about it.

Just read this off of an envelope that some one wrote:

I am neither male or female, The Government told me so...
I am neither proud or pathetic, The Government told me so...
I am neither wanted or needed because I am White, The Government told me so...
The Government is destroying humanity,
who is left to tell them so...?

Not quite.

He was a pedophile being a Spartan and all. All manly men of Sparta grew up being molested, then molesting young boys, cuz it’s just sex, nothing gay. Just how the ancients rolled, nothing illegal or morally wrong about child rape in their society.

Epic fake news title.

Yes the battle of the Alamo was a heroic one.

I ask why would they name it after alah and mohammad?


That would be the arab restaurant in Dearborn, the Allah -Mo'.
World's finest soul food.

Two sides to every story.
