Why Is This Statue OK with Libs?

Imagine the furor–or should I say fuhrer?–if the National Portrait Gallery had a “Struggle For Justice” exhibit featuring a statue of Heinrich Himmler.

Well, they don’t, but they’ve got the next best thing–a bust of Margaret Sanger, who founded Planned Parenthood as an integral part of something that she called “the Negro Project,” aimed at ridding the world of “inferior races” (http://www.christianpost.com/news/black-pastors-protest-smithsonian-bust-of-planned-parenthoods-nazi-like-founder-margaret-sanger-in-civil-rights-exhibit-143901/). In other words, her position was the same as Himmler’s, but lacking the kind of resources he had at his disposal–the SS, concentration camps, etc.–Sanger sought to accomplish the same end by different means: to wit, abortion.

Meanwhile there’s all this foof about tearing down Civil War statues, which commemorate things that stopped happening 150 years ago, but this statue, which honors a thoroughly wicked thing that’s still happening today, stands.

Don’t get me wrong. I don’t approve of erasing history, and I don’t want Sanger’s statue destroyed or hidden. But to leave it under any roof pertaining to anyone’s idea of “justice” is way too rich for me. This Himmler in skirts is part of history; we ought to know about her; we ought to know she intended abortion as a means of practical genocide; and in fact, we’d better not forget her. Because it’s dangerous to forget history: it has a way of turning back and biting you.

Prez Renames Mt. McKinley

No, I’m not pulling your leg. President *Batteries Not Included really has taken it upon himself to rename Mt. McKinley, the highest mountain in North America ( http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/obama-renames-nation%E2%80%99s-highest-mountain/ar-AAdLF9D?ocid=ansmsnnews11 ).

Who does he think he is?

It will now be Mt. Denali, a name by which many of the native peoples have called it for centuries. If that strikes you as only fair, please bear in mind that most of the geographical features in North America, natural and man-made, used to have names other than the ones they have today. Do you want to start changing all the names back to what they were 500 years ago?

Mt. McKinley was an easy target because it was named for a white male Republican. Had it been dubbed, say, Mt. Al Sharpton, or Mt. Margaret “Abortion Goddess” Sanger, or Mt. Dan “Mr. Homofascist” Savage, there is no way that name is going anywhere. But who was going to stand up for poor President McKinley?

It would be more productive and more just to start naming landfills and Superfund sites after our current national leaders. The Mitch McConnell Solid Waste Collection Site. The Hilary Clinton Toxic Waste Reservation. Enter at your own risk.

Because it won’t be so easy to get out.
