We Want Our History

First the statues, then the books… that’s how they do it

To be ignorant of history is to be condemned to a perpetual childhood. If you really are a child, this is not so bad. But what kind of adult wants to live this way?

The Democrat war on history continues in New York, where Gov. Andrew Cuomo has asked the Army to remove Confederate street names from Fort Hamilton (http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2017/08/16/fort-hamilton-church-lee-plaques/)–because, he says, men like Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson “fought to protect slavery.”

For the record, Jackson never owned a slave in his life; and Lee, before going to war, freed the slaves he’d inherited from his family because he most certainly did not want anyone to say that he, personally, was fighting to protect slavery. But Democrats don’t care about the truth.

New York Mayor Warren Wilhelm, who uses the alias “Bill DeBlasio,” says the city will “conduct a 90-day review of all symbols of hate on city property.” He ought to start by throwing out all the mirrors in Gracie Mansion.

And a church in Brooklyn has removed a plaque from a maple tree planted there by Lee almost 20 years before the Civil War.

Mark Steyn calls this a conscious effort to thoroughly de-legitimize all of U.S. history, an act of willful barbarism. He has called it what it is.

And the question must be asked: Why are we permitting this? Okay, I understand, Democrats and other leftids hate America and want to turn it into something else, with themselves as its rulers. But what about the rest of us? Why do we allow this to go forward? Why do we consent to be governed by scoundrels and cowards who refuse to protect our nation’s history?

The war on the dead continues, and here we are with our hands in our pockets, being very small and quiet.

  1. Most people, if asked, don’t care statues. They think about them no more than the air they breathe, and these inanimate objects certainly have never stopped people from living their lives. In fact, it was never an issue until they made it an issue. They are good at doing this, trans bathrooms for example. Unfortunately this tiny group of fanatics, are drawing the majority of the attention.

    1. Unfortunately, that’s precisely why we are referred to as ‘the silent majority’. The left is so rabid, sane people don’t really know quite how to deal with them.

  2. Do you think the Left would be doing this if Hillary Clinton had won the Presidency? (an aside: “Cosmopolitan” mag has article on the Clintons as a model for a good marriage – barf!). Why no statue bashing during 8 years of Obama? Satan is a schemer always stirring up strife.

    1. Oh, they’d be busy with other things, with Hillary as president–prosecuting Climbit Change Denial, passing federal laws against using the wrong pronoun, overturning what little remains of our immigration laws, banning opposition to abortion…
