America’s liberals, progressives, and Democrats are in the throes of denial. They seem to want to erase a lot of American history. Their torrid history. They want all the statues of southern Generals and anything else that is related to slavery removed from public site so we are not reminded of the Democrats past racism and hatred. They even have desecrated a statue of Lincoln who freed the slaves! The problem is, their racism and demand to have complete control over the black community is still very evident today. By the way, they don’t have a problem with Carl Marx statues. Interesting.
Those that write history get to write their version which isn’t always the truth. That goes for both sides of the isle. Case in point is how Native Americans have been portrayed. Growing up I was ‘taught’ that the Native Americans ‘massacred’ Custer at the Battle of the little Big Horn. I, as a student of history, later found out that Custer was a dirt bags dirt bag. The only good Indian is a dead Indian, type of attitude and that he attacked them, not the other way around. So much for truth about history. Then on the other side I was taught that they were kinder than the white man, more in tune with nature and had a higher spirituality than the white man even though it was not directed at the right Spirit. Because of this we now see the snowflakes wanting all statues of Christopher Columbus removed because he was the one that introduced slavery to the Americas and was the cause of Native American genocide, even though he never set foot on American soil. What they fail to remember, if they were ever taught it, is the fact that he did introduce Christianity to the North American continent. Some say that isn’t a good thing but we have to remember that five years before Columbus showed up over 80,000 people were sacrificed to the Aztec gods: The Aztecs bragged of sacrificing 80,000 victims at the re-consecration of Great Pyramid of Tenochtitlan in 1487. A review of a museum show of Aztec art called it “chilling” and “terrifying.” Writing in “The Guardian,” journalist Laura Cumming called Aztec art “the most alien of all art. There are no images of moving animals, as in the caves of Lascaux. There are no accounts of great deeds, or commemorations of great leaders as in the art of the Pharaohs. Unlike just about every other culture in history, the Aztecs did not represent women, or women with babies, or, indeed, children at all. Nor, to be fair, did they ever depict men except as priests or warriors half-skeletonized in the jaws of death.
If they had any interest in the human spirit, in friendship, sex or emotion, then they certainly never showed it. The last thing you would expect from them would be anything as human or intimate as a portrait…As far as I can see, pretty much the entire purpose of Aztec art was to scare the living daylights out of everyone who saw it…Even the flea is monumentalized in stone because it lives by sucking blood. 1 Not to be picky here but Christianity has never used human sacrifice so the introduction of Christianity to the Americas seems like a good thing to anyone with working brain cells.
The liberals also complain that he brought slavery to America but they ignore that every nation on the face of the earth practiced slavery at the time. Why America is such a disgrace because of it but no other nation is, is mindboggling. Especially when all muslim nations today still practice slavery in several forms. AFTER being captured by Islamic State, a group of young girls were forced to stand against a wall while men groped their chest.
“If she had breasts then she was OK to rape,” said a Yazidi survivor recounting the experience. “If she did not have breasts they kept her there for another three months and came back to see if she had grown in the meantime; whether she was good for raping then.”
The young woman revealed she was forced to watch other girls being raped in front of her, before becoming pregnant and trying to throw herself down the stairs to force a miscarriage.
“Even women who had three or more children were raped in front of their children,” she told the UK government in 2015. “There are thousands of other girls right at this moment, in Iraq, in Syria, going through the same thing or about to go through the same thing. Nobody is talking about them and nobody is doing anything.”
The harrowing experience forms part of a new report by the Henry Jackson Society’s Nikita Malik, looking at how sex slavery has become a lucrative and critical trade for terrorist groups like Islamic State, Boko Haram and Al-Shabaab in recent years. 2 Why don’t these people who want to disgrace America because the slavery of her past never say anything about the slavery practiced today by Islamic nations? These people are not just ignorant of America’s history and world history but they are grossly ignorant about modern history as well!
The idiocy goes even further. The most useless organization in the world, the UN, says that the US owes blacks reparations. The history of slavery in the United States justifies reparations for African Americans, argues a recent report by a U.N.-affiliated group based in Geneva.
This conclusion was part of a study by the United Nations’ Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent, a body that reports to the international organization’s High Commissioner on Human Rights. The group of experts, which includes leading human rights lawyers from around the world, presented its findings to the United Nations Human Rights Council on Monday, pointing to the continuing link between present injustices and the dark chapters of American history.
“In particular, the legacy of colonial history, enslavement, racial subordination and segregation, racial terrorism and racial inequality in the United States remains a serious challenge, as there has been no real commitment to reparations and to truth and reconciliation for people of African descent,” the report stated. “Contemporary police killings and the trauma that they create are reminiscent of the past racial terror of lynching.” 3 Really? People who were never slave owners must pay reparations to people who were never slaves! What about all the other nations of the world throughout history that allowed slavery? When will the UN call for reparations for them? What about the young girls that muslims are kidnapping today and forcing them into sex slavery? When will the UN call for reparations for them? Heck, when will the UN call for a stop in this barbaric behavior? Probably won’t happen because most of the UN are muslim nations that condone that present day practice.
George Santayana, a philosopher and essayist in the late 19th and early 20th century stated “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Would those that are ignorant of our history still be the radical brainless fools they are if they had a full grasp of real history. If they knew that islam embraces slavery today? If they do know this and still demand that America be brought to her knees because of slavery have a deeper agenda than slavery. Anyone who is really paying attention knows that most of these fools if not all of them are only doing it for the money. George Soros is funding all the riots against Trump and conservative speakers at any college. Student protesters attempted to block the entrances to Tommy Robinson’s speech at Columbia University Tuesday night, then stormed inside to ensure that the event could not proceed.
According to a Facebook page for the protest, the rally was explicitly dubbed an “anti-fascist” protest to show that “alt-right speakers” allegedly like Robinson are “not welcome on our campus.”
“As students and community members, we are disappointed in our campus Young Republicans for choosing to aid the trend violent provocation over intellectual discourse,” a description for the protest, organized by Columbia’s Apartheid Divest group, states. “Far-right extremism has relied upon Young Republican chapters at universities for audiences, promotion, and credibility.” 4 It wasn’t the Young Republicans that chose ‘violent provocation’ it was the liberal snowflakes that can’t handle a different opinion from theirs.
Amherst College, and I use that term loosely, has allowed the desecration of the honoring those who died in the murderous attack on 9-11. On Monday, the sixteenth anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks, leftist campus culture reached a new low. Students at Amherst College took it upon themselves to use that sacred day of remembrance as an opportunity to affix a shocking anti-war message upon the school’s Valentine Dining Hall. The banner, posted anonymously and penned in capital letters, evoked a quote attributed to Howard Zinn: “There is no flag large enough to cover the shame of killing innocent people.”
Worse still, added below were the words; “In honor of those killed and displaced by America’s so-called ‘war on terror.’” The location of the banner was a clear effort to undermine this year’s iteration of a noble tradition: a 9/11 memorial erected yearly inside the Hall by the Amherst College Republicans—the only student organization that acknowledges the attacks in such a manner. 5 This is the result of decades of liberal professors feeding lies and outright lies to our kids. We pay dearly for this ‘education’ that has very little if any truth and no substance.
We can continue to ignore what history has taught us or we can take those lessons and build a better future based on truth. Our kids deserve that as they start out in life. We were given a strong nation that led the world and we must do the same for our children.
