The campaign of cultural and historical Stalinism continues

These fools actually think they are on the right side of history? Soon there will be no history left

So, what good will actually be done here? Do these folks think people actually care that much what a road is called? Have they done any in depth studying of Jefferson Davis? Have they thought what else $27,000 might be used for? I would surmise all three questions would get a resounding no! The Mayor, of course, wrapped herself in a cloak of glory for this action

Alexandria Mayor Allison Silberberg, however, supported the highway name change.

“It speaks to who we are. That we are a city of kindness and compassion, a city where we’re not just tolerant but embracing and accepting where diversity is a core value,” Silberberg told WJLA-TV.

Hmmm, so excluding a famous, and key historical figure in “inclusive”? It is “diverse”? An act that offends many Southerners who ancestors fought in the War Between the States honors “core values”?

“Hopefully when it does change people will be aware of how offensive it is because it’s built on slavery. We’re trying to move past the racial barriers of everything. Maybe this can be a start,” Mitchell said.

What is “built on slavery”? The road? The state? The city? Perhaps Mitchell has that leftist attitude that everything in America is “built on slavery”? I would pose this question to her. Will she support removing the names of Washington, or Jefferson from roads, schools, etc.? I ponder this. Is she aware that this type of historical erasure does not stop once it is commenced?

Now the Cultural Stalinists are gunning for Patrick Henry

Remember, to destroy a nation, you must destroy its history H/T Moonbattery

You didn’t think they would stop at Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson did you? Or even with George Washington and Thomas Jefferson? The campaign to erase all the “racists” in American history is a campaign to erase American history, period. Without it, we won’t know who we are. That way progressive social engineers will have an easier time transforming this into a very different country. Every great person in American history must be discredited and destroyed — including Patrick Henry. From New Mogadishu, formerly known as Minneapolis:

Students at Patrick Henry High School are organizing to change the name of their school.

“#ChangeTheName” is picking up steam, and now alumni and members of the community are joining the movement.

Like many prominent Virginians of his time, Henry owned slaves. Ergo, he is bad and must be erased.

By the same logic, the entire Roman Empire needs to go down the Memory Hole.

[Students] Janaan Ahmed and Farhiyo Hassan [say] change comes by educating their peers about the damaging effects of upholding what they call oppressive figures, like Patrick Henry.

Of course common sense dictates you examine historical figures in the context of their time, and how their efforts changed the place they lived. Without men like Henry, there would be no America, no liberty, and no hope.

But Patrick Henry offends some clueless students so, he must be erased. Yes, even though he opposed slavery. But facts? They matter not, only feelings and social justice matter

Patrick Henry was a successful lawyer and politician from Virginia. He went on the become governor of the state as well as being a Founding Father. As an extensive landowner, and as most Founding Fathers, Henry owned a number of slaves throughout is life. The number of slaves that Henry owned is recorded at about 80. However, he would go on to become aware of the wrongdoings within slavery and push for its abolishment.

Henry’s dissent towards slavery can be seen in numerous documents throughout his life including letters to colleagues. One of the most relevant of these documents includes Henry’s January 18, 1773 letter to Robert Pleasants. Within this letter, Henry first thanks Pleasants upon receiving a slave, and then continues to discuss a number of disagreements towards the idea of slavery. He speaks on Christianity and the fact that it “consists in softening the human heart” however it allows “a practice so totally repugnant.” Henry goes on to say that it is hard to believe that during a time of enlightenment and emphasis on human rights, that the practice of slavery could continue.

As an extremely outspoken and opinionated politician, it is hard to determine his influences in terms of disagreements within slavery. He was one that was against the United States Constitution and a firm believer in the rights of the individual. However, he often referenced religion when discussing the subject. Henry stated that the abolishment of slavery is “the furthest advance we can make toward justice….The purity of our religion…is at variance with that law which warrants slavery.”

In terms of specific actions, Patrick Henry consistently held speeches, wrote letters and was a prominent leader in the process of abolishing slavery. He became a prominent figure in opposition to slavery, something that his fellow Founding Fathers both acknowledged and embraced. Henry is quoted in stating that slavery was “inconsistent with the Bible, and destructive to morality.”

Henry is often referred to as the voice of revolution for his stern and outspoken demeanor. As Thomas Jefferson outlines, the push for the abolishment of slavery in Virginia almost lied solely on the approaches of Henry. Jefferson can be quoted speaking of Patrick Henry stating that he was “even more determined in his opposition to slavery then the rest of us.” Jefferson also credits Henry with allowing Virginians to find “the moral courage to take a bold and decided stand.”

Please  go read the rest it is well sourced and eye opening. Sadly, the left has no interest in being informed

And then George Washington was erased by the Cultural Stalinists

One key to destroying a nation is to destroy its history, 

Ah the “safe space” argument, it is not just for college snowflakes anymore. Note carefully the statement from the church

Leaders at the church that George Washington attended decided that a plaque honoring the first president of the United States must be removed.

Christ Church in Alexandria, Virginia will take down a memorial marking the pew where Washington sat with his family, saying it is not acceptable to all worshipers.

“The plaques in our sanctuary make some in our presence feel unsafe or unwelcome,” leaders said, a reference to the fact that Washington was a slaveholder.

“Some visitors and guests who worship with us choose not to return because they receive an unintended message from the prominent presence of the plaques.”

Well, certainly removing that plaque will make others feel unwelcome. I know I would never venture to that church again. So this is not about sparing feelings, or not offending someone. It is about one thing, erasing history.

Don’t look at me, I warned you, it would not stop with Confederate generals

I said, over twenty years ago, that if we allowed the left to destroy Southern heritage they would not stop there. As the efforts to erase all vestiges of Confederate history, and men like Lee, Jackson, Davis, and the common Confederate soldier, some have said this is progress. Even some on the right have placed capitulation to Cultural Stalinists as a worthwhile goal. Either these fools do not know any history, or they are just foolishly hoping they can sate the beast that is the left. Fools!

Abraham Lincoln stands too tall in American history not to be denounced as a thought criminal. As mentioned earlier, moonbats at University of Wisconsin–Madison have demanded that his statue be desecrated with a plaque denouncing him for his supposed oppression of sacred victims of color. The plaque would be a prelude to Lincoln following Robert E. Lee down the Memory Hole. One reason they want to erase Lincoln is that he has recently become a slave owner:

“Everyone thinks of Lincoln as the great, you know, freer of slaves, but let’s be real: He owned slaves, and as natives, we want people to know that he ordered the execution of native men,” said one of the protesters [at UW-Madison]. …

Wisconsin Supreme Court candidate JoAnne Kloppenburg alsomade the mistake of saying Lincoln owned slaves last year.

If they can turn Lincoln into a Democrat, why can’t they turn him into a slave owner?

Understanding the left is not hard, they have one goal, to destroy Individualism, and supplant it everywhere with Collectivism. To do that they must destroy America, And to destroy a nation, they must destroy our border, which will destroy our sovereignty. They must destroy our history, so that they may rewrite it to delegitimize our nation. They must destroy the family, marriage, and every other traditional American institution. They must destroy all vestiges or individual liberty, especially the right to freedoms of speech, religion, and association. They must attack the right to own firearms. They must punish those who refuse to be part of a “identity”. They must destroy law enforcement as we know it. They must divide all of us into groups, then into sub-groups. This will ultimately divide us, fracture our national spirit and unity. When they have done all of those things, they may place all power in a government which will ensure a Marxist Utopia where all are equal. And, the equality they seek will be an equality without any freedoms the State does not allow. 

If you think I am being too extreme consider everything the Left is doing in America. Look at all their “causes”. Then think about what will be left of America if their causes are ever fully realized. Everything just written about is being attempted right now, by the left. This is not a theory, it is happening. 

Oh no! As Halloween nears cultural appropriation causing butt hurt for snowflakes

Face it, the left is at war with everything good, decent, and traditional about America. Halloween included

A bulletin board is urging students in a Kent State University residence hall to “stop cultural appropriation this Halloween” by eschewing costumes based on other cultures.

According to the display, located in Allyn Hall, cultural appropriation occurs whenever somebody “adopts aspects of a culture that’s not their own,” elaborating that “it is the adoption or theft of icons, rituals, aesthetic standards, and behavior from one culture or subculture by another.”

In addition, it says the term “also refers to a particular power dynamic in which members of a dominant culture take elements from a culture of people who have been systematically oppressed by that dominant group.”

Many fancy words that are made to sound profound, when in fact, cultural appropriation is nothing but a scam meant to foment resentment and divide people. Of course resentment, anger, false outrage and division is what the left pushes constantly isn’t it? The left has been dividing Americans by every possible means for decades. Now that venomous rhetoric is commonplace and sadly accepted by too many as legitimate. This is a dangerous time in America. It is crucial that we not allow these fallacies the left is pushing to go unchallenged.Truth is to Leftism what holy water is to vampires. Even Joe Biden gets it

Of course Crazy Uncle Joe is partly wrong. Leftists, there are very few legitimate liberals left, cannot debate their ideology because it has been proven a failure over and again. Therefore, they have two options. Either accept the failure of Marxist teachings, and evolve, or silence and attack the character of their opponents. I believe we all see very clearly which road they have taken.

So, we can forget Joe Biden’s vision of tolerant leftists, there is no such creature in existence frankly. The few actual liberals out there are as demonized by the new Brown Shirts as are Conservatives. An actual Liberal supports free speech, Leftists do not, and they never will. They never can because they have but one goal. That is the destruction of America and all its history, traditions, values, and economic systems. Morality, and fairness? Such notions do not dissuade leftists from pushing their agenda of Marxist Utopianism. The ends are all that matters to the left, the means? Whatever it takes to bring on the utopia, that is anything but

He nails it. Communism/Marxism/Collectivism are all evil and lead not to utopias but to slaughterhouses and slavery to the State.
