Parishioners Robert E. Lee and George Washington Both Erased From Historic Alexandria Church

The purpose of the War on History is to delegitimize the USA, because once America has stopped believing in itself, it can easily be destroyed. Progressives will have won this war when we no longer take pride in our greatest national hero, George Washington:

An historic Episcopal parish where George Washington frequently worshiped has decided to remove a memorial plaque honoring the nation’s first president, saying the decision was out of a desire to provide a “welcoming” worship space for all visitors. The church will also remove a similar memorial plague honoring Robert E. Lee, the commander of Confederate Army of Northern Virginia.

The vestry of Christ Church in Alexandria, Virginia, announced its unanimous decision in an Oct. 26 letter, The Republican Standard website reported Thursday. The letter suggests that while initially the concern was over honoring the Confederate military leader, Washington’s slave ownership was a factor in the decision to remove his plaque as well.

The moonbats running the church imply that a plaque honoring the father of our country might make persons of politically preferred pigmentation feel “unsafe.” Presumably $1 bills make them feel unsafe too, so it is only a matter of time before liberals demand that we replace Washington’s portrait with someone more “inclusive.” Why not Michael Brown?

If Robert E. Lee is a thought criminal who deserves to be erased, so is George Washington. Follow the logic and you can see that America in general needs to be erased.

This is why every last plaque or statue honoring Washington, Lee, or anyone else targeted in the name of political correctness is worth fighting for as ferociously as we would fight amphibious troops from a hostile dictatorship landing on our shores.

Liberal Taliban Targets Horse for Reminding Them of Robert E. Lee

If liberals won’t tolerate a sportscaster being named Robert Lee, why would they tolerate a horse with a name similar to the name of Robert E. Lee’s horse?

When Richard Saukko galloped his chalk-white Arabian horse named Traveler around the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum almost 56 years ago, it was supposed to be a one-time stunt.

Instead, the brief performance before USC kicked off its season against Georgia Tech turned into one of college football’s iconic traditions. A succession of white horses named Traveler have followed — Traveler IX debuts this fall — trotting out of the tunnel as “Conquest” plays and the costumed Trojan warrior atop the horse waves a sword.

But then the USC Black Student Assembly was made aware that Robert E. Lee’s favorite horse was named Traveller…

Compounding the oppression, Traveler is white. The glue factory is too good for this racist.

Next After Robert E. Lee: Christopher Columbus

You can’t hate the European people and their civilization without hating Christopher Columbus, who personifies their expansion into the formerly savage New World. Consequently,

A proposal to remove a statue of the explorer Christopher Columbus on the Upper West Side will receive “immediate attention” by Mayor Bill de Blasio’s office in the wake of violence stemming from a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va.

Columbus Circle will need a new name. Al Sharpton Circle might be appropriate.

Even in Columbus, Ohio, leftists are demanding that officials remove a statue of Columbus.

What bureaucrats don’t impose, likeminded mobs inflict extralegally:

[Monday] morning someone posted a video showing a man with a sledgehammer vandalizing a monument to Christopher Columbus in Baltimore as he rants about “genocidal terrorists like Christopher Columbus and George Washington.” The Baltimore Brew reports the 225-year-old monument to Columbus is the oldest one still standing in the United States.

The two-minute video also features a monologue that lists capitalism among Columbus’ worst sins. “Christopher Columbus symbolizes the initial invasion of European capitalism into the Western Hemisphere,” the narrator says.

Vermin like this are eradicating our heritage so as to replace it with their diseased, self-hating ideology:

Other Columbus statues have been vandalized in Houston and Detroit.

All of this was easily predictable from the time liberals started demanding that Columbus Day be changed to Indigenous Peoples’ Day, and that Martin Luther King Day replace it as a day off work. Yet again we see that if you give them an inch, they will take a mile.

Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson Replaced by Pregnant Black Woman

The campaign to eradicate memorials to any historical figures liberals consider not to have been in compliance with their ideology is mainly about symbolism — and symbolism couldn’t be any more perfectly emblematic of what America is being transformed into than this:

Activists lifted a modern sculpture depicting a pregnant African-American “Lady Liberty” onto the pedestal where a monument to Confederate Generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson was removed overnight.

The new statue is not sanctioned by the City of Baltimore which owns the site, but there was no immediate action to remove it by police or city officials.

The competently executed statues of Lee and Jackson were products of a culture that honored great men. The new statue is a product of what American culture is becoming.

In the Age of the Welfare State, victory is achieved not with cannons and courage, but with pregnant bellies and dependency.

Next After Robert E. Lee: George Washington

They haven’t even finished tearing down everything they can find that reminds them of the Confederacy and already, as predicted, they are going after presidents — starting at the top with our greatest national hero. From Chicago:

A bronze statue of George Washington on horseback stands at the corner of 51st and King Drive, at the northwest entrance to Washington Park.

Bishop James Dukes, pastor of Liberation Christian Center, said he wants the statue gone, and he wants George Washington’s name removed from the park.

Washington isn’t the only one slated to become an unperson for failing to comply with current liberal ideology.

The pastor also said President Andrew Jackson’s name should be removed from nearby Jackson Park, because he also was a slave owner. He said he’s not necessarily asking the city rename the parks altogether. He suggested Washington Park could be named after former Mayor Harold Washington, and Jackson Park could be named after civil rights leader Rev. Jesse Jackson or singer Michael Jackson.

Jesse Jackson is a professional race baiter who got rich by mau-mauing — i.e., through extortion. Michael Jackson was a transracial pervert who molested little boys before dying of degeneracy. Both represent the sort of heroes who will replace the heroes liberals frog-march down the Memory Hole.

You don’t agree that the father of our country was a scoundrel who must be erased? You must be a Nazi. You know what happens to Nazis these days.

They aren’t just erasing the South. They are erasing America, so as to replace it with a totally different society that the Founding Fathers would have found intolerable. If they don’t encounter enough resistance, they will succeed.

Moonbats Tear Down Major Robert E. Lee Monument in New Orleans

Now for the coup de grâce in Mayor Mitch Landrieu’s campaign to purge New Orleans of Southern history:

Crews in New Orleans on Friday used a crane to lift a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee off its pedestal as the city removed the last of four monuments its leaders see as racially offensive.

History and heritage are now offensive. Consequently, they must be erased.

The Lee statue was a prominent landmark that stood on a 60-foot marble column. It was dedicated in 1884.

See here and here for earlier chapters in this sordid story. Eager to pander to black voters, Landrieu has been purging the city of major historical monuments on the grounds that Southern history does not conform to currently fashionable political views.

He called them “symbols of white supremacy” and a part of a movement “to rewrite history, to hide the truth, which is that the Confederacy was on the wrong side of humanity.”

That is, the monuments that he has been tearing down so as to rewrite history are guilty of rewriting history. Only through lifelong practice can liberals achieve such mind-bending extremes of hypocrisy.

The Islamic State and the Taliban have been using methods similar to Landrieu’s to erase parts of history so as to consolidate control over the present.

Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson Slated to Become Unpersons

It isn’t only lead characters on popular cable shows who need to be erased if they don’t conform to the currently enforced ideology. Historical figures need to go too — even some of the most important:

The U.S. Army War College, which molds future field generals, has begun discussing whether it should remove its portraits of Confederate generals — including those of Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson.

Was the war fought to preserve the Union or to subjugate the South? If the American heroes Lee and Jackson become unpersons, we will finally have a definitive answer.

In the end, not only the South but our entire civilization will be erased if we fail to cure it of the totalitarian mindset of those who insist that every aspect of life must comply with liberalism.

The Immortal Poetry of Robert Francis O’Rourke

Some say his record is devoid of accomplishments, but in addition to advocating tearing down border defenses and attempting to flee the scene after colliding with a truck while driving drunk, presidential candidate Robert Francis O’Rourke aka Beto has also written poetry. From a youthful piece entitled “The Song of the Cow,” via Daily Caller:

I need a butt-shine,
Right now
You are holy,
Oh, sacred Cow
I thirst for you,
Provide Milk.

Buff my balls,
Love the Cow,
Good fortune for those that do.
Love me, breathe my feet,
The Cow has risen.

Wax my ass,
Scrub my balls.
The Cow has risen,
Provide Milk.

Beto must be pleased with the treatment he has received from the liberal media establishment, which for reasons incomprehensible to countermoonbats finds him immensely appealing. Journalists are eager to provide the butt-shine, buffing, waxing, and scrubbing he desires.

Further down in the poem, he calls upon the cow to “thrust your hooves up my analytic passage.”

Less hilariously, he also wrote murder fantasies that involved killing children. An excerpt via Reuters:

“One day, as I was driving home from work, I noticed two children crossing the street. They were happy, happy to be free from their troubles…. This happiness was mine by right. I had earned it in my dreams.

“As I neared the young ones, I put all my weight on my right foot, keeping the accelerator pedal on the floor until I heard the crashing of the two children on the hood, and then the sharp cry of pain from one of the two. I was so fascinated for a moment, that when after I had stopped my vehicle, I just sat in a daze, sweet visions filling my head.”

Looks like there could be more to Beto than we thought. No doubt moonbats will celebrate his edginess.

ESPN Pulls Asian Announcer for Being Named Robert Lee

Leave it to the moonbats at ultra-liberal ESPN to push the war on all things Southern past self-parody into the realm of the surreal:

ESPN confirmed Tuesday night that it had decided to pull an announcer from calling a University of Virginia football game because his name is Robert Lee. This Robert Lee is Asian.

As even the idiots running ESPN might be aware, Lee is a common Chinese name.

Mr. Lee had been scheduled to call the Cavaliers Sept. 2 game in Charlottesville against William and Mary.

Incredibly, ESPN continues to double down on the dumb by lamenting the insanity that it not only perpetuates but escalates.

“It’s a shame that this is even a topic of conversation and we regret that who calls play by play for a football game has become an issue,” ESPN said in its statement.

It has become an issue because the ESPN thought police made it one. They seem to be so politically correct, they suspect even Asians of being white supremacists if their name reminds them of a famous Southerner.

Unlit recently, Robert E. Lee was universally regarded not only as a significant historical figure, but as a great man worthy of the highest respect. He fought not because he was a Nazi but because he was loyal to the same Virginia as other great men like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison. His honorable surrender allowed the Civil War to end (except in the minds of the liberals who are still fighting it), rather than drag on indefinitely as a guerrilla war. If Southerners had known that even their heroes would be erased by vicious sore winners, they may never have heeded Lee’s call to lay down their arms.

If they can demonize Lee like this, they can do the same to the other great Virginians mentioned above. In the meantime, ESPN employees are advised not to wear Lee jeans to work; they would probably get fired as racists.

Robert Kennedy Jr. Proclaims That Vaccinating Children Is a Holocaust

Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the sorry dregs of the formerly influential Kennedy clan, must have run out of crazy things to shout regarding the global warming hoax. Now he is going off about vaccinations:

Kennedy spoke to a crowd Tuesday screening a film that claims a link between autism in children and thimerosal, an ingredient in vaccines, according to the Sacramento Bee.

“They get the shot, that night they have a fever of a hundred and three, they go to sleep, and three months later their brain is gone,” Kennedy reportedly told the crowd. “This is a holocaust, what this is doing to our country.”

A little constructive criticism for the last famous Kennedy: maybe more people would take you seriously if you didn’t run around with your hair on fire screaming about holocausts.

Multiple studies have rejected any link between thimerosal and autism. Even without any link discovered, the ingredient has been removed from nearly all childhood vaccines.

But then, despite $billions of taxpayer money being wasted on it, no one has proven any causal link between CO2 and the climate. That never slowed down RFK Jr.’s mouth either.

Mark Steyn Stands Firm With Phil Robertson

As John Hawkins correctly notes,

It’s incredibly refreshing to have someone under attack by the Left’s political correctness police who’s willing to stand firm instead of whimpering and hiding in a corner because he wants to make it all go away.

Hawkins is referring to Phil Robertson, who instead of licking the hand of the degeneracy-promoting liberal fascists who control television, has stood firm by his conventional values. The same applies to Mark Steyn. After being publicly chastised by his editor for siding with Robertson against the pink Nazis at GLAAD who have been attempting to destroy him for his decency, Steyn doubled down:

Having leaned on A&E to suspend their biggest star, GLAAD has now moved on to Stage Two:

“We believe the next step is to use this as an opportunity for Phil to sit down with gay families in Louisiana and learn about their lives and the values they share,” the spokesman said.

Actually, “the next step” is for you thugs to push off and stop targeting, threatening and making demands of those who happen to disagree with you. Personally, I think this would be a wonderful opportunity for the GLAAD executive board to sit down with half-a-dozen firebreathing imams and learn about their values, but, unlike the Commissars of the Bureau of Conformity Enforcement, I accord even condescending little ticks like the one above the freedom to arrange his own social calendar.

As for the editor who publicly denounced him, namely Jason Lee Steorts, Steyn writes:

It is a matter of some regret to me that my own editor at this publication does not regard this sort of thing as creepy and repellent rather than part of the vibrant tapestry of what he calls an “awakening to a greater civility”. I’m not inclined to euphemize intimidation and bullying as a lively exchange of ideas – “the use of speech to criticize other speech”, as Mr Steorts absurdly dignifies it. So do excuse me if I skip to the men’s room during his patronizing disquisition on the distinction between “state coercion” and “cultural coercion”. I’m well aware of that, thank you. In the early days of my free-speech battles in Canada, my friend Ezra Levant used a particular word to me: “de-normalize”. Our enemies didn’t particularly care whether they won in court. Whatever the verdict, they’d succeed in “de-normalizing” us — that’s to say, putting us beyond the pale of polite society and mainstream culture. “De-normalizing” is the business GLAAD and the other enforcers are in. You’ll recall Paula Deen’s accuser eventually lost in court — but the verdict came too late for Ms Deen’s book deal, and TV show, and endorsement contracts.

National Review has played a role in denormalizing in the past. Ostensibly a conservative publication, it serves the liberal establishment of which it is part by providing a phony opposition (much like the GOP), while restricting what conservatives are allowed to say.

Readers will recall that when John Derbyshire made certain undeniably accurate racial observations in a separate publication, he was promptly fired by National Review’s Thought Cop in Chief Rich Lowry for stepping outside the bounds of political correctness.

I’ve been wondering how long a sincere and gutsy guy like Steyn would last at NR, considering that he stood firm and won against the PC totalitarians who tried to gag him in Canada. Looks like we are about to find out:

I am sorry my editor at NR does not grasp the stakes. Indeed, he seems inclined to “normalize” what GLAAD is doing. But, if he truly finds my “derogatory language” offensive, I’d rather he just indefinitely suspend me than twist himself into a soggy pretzel of ambivalent inertia trying to avoid the central point — that a society where lives are ruined over an aside because some identity-group don decides it must be so is ugly and profoundly illiberal. As to his kind but belated and conditional pledge to join me on the barricades, I had enough of that level of passionate support up in Canada to know that, when the call to arms comes, there will always be some “derogatory” or “puerile” expression that it will be more important to tut over. So thanks for the offer, but I don’t think you’d be much use, would you?

Wow. As Bill Clinton would say, Steors had better put some ice on that.

Given the right conditions, a few sparks of boldness have been known to set off major conflagrations. If Robertson and Steyn can stand up to the corrupt establishment, so can the rest of us.

Pink Fascists Take Out Phil Robertson, Star of Duck Dynasty

Thought control has crossed the line into straightforward totalitarianism. Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson, star of the most popular show on cable television, has been placed on indefinite hiatus for making commonsense remarks regarding homosexuality that are not compliant with the up-to-the-minute dictates of political correctness.

Robertson’s thought crime was saying this:

“It seems like, to me, a vagina — as a man — would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”

In the sick freak show this society is being forced to become, men are no longer allowed to regard women as preferable to other men’s anuses as objects of sexual attraction.

Robertson compounded his crime by implying — as virtually no one participating in Western Civilization over the last 3,000 years would have denied until a few years ago — that homosexuality is unholy and unnatural.

“Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men.”

This allowed the Gay Mafia to screech that he was comparing homosexuality to bestiality, which at this point in our moral disintegration is still regarded as an insult.

What’s more he listed homosexuality with other sins by paraphrasing Corinthians:

“Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers — they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”

Nothing Robertson said would have been regarded as even remotely controversial until a few years ago. Now, A&E is willing to kill a golden goose to punish him for incurring the wrath of homosexual militants, who insist on reverence for the obscene acts of depravity that define their self-images.

Totalitarianism has reared its head before, but has there ever been a society so sick as not to allow people to disapprove of perversion?

You had to know that the liberal establishment was not pleased with the runaway success of Duck Dynasty, considering that it presents Christian faith, family values, and rural Southerners in a favorable light, in stark contrast to virtually everything else on television. But to cripple it despite the massive revenue it must be producing because the star made remarks that would have gone undisputed by anyone until recently and that still qualify as mainstream outside of corrupted liberal enclaves indicates that we have come to a fork in the road.

Is what we can or cannot say up to militants at the top of the liberal caste system, or is this still America? The response this episode evokes will determine the answer.

It’s nice that thought criminals are not shot or shipped to Siberia in our soft tyranny, but only lose their jobs. However, the end result is the same: a stultified society in which no one can express honest views, but must merely parrot official dogma.

If Phil Robertson is erased from public view in the name of reverence for anal sex without an outcry, the noose around our necks will only tighten. How long before the Bible is forcibly altered for not being compliant with homosexual ideology?

Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer Banned From Britain

Kudos to countermoonbats Pamela Geller (Atlas Shrugs) and Robert Spencer (Jihad Watch) — they have received the highest honors the rulers of once great Britain can bestow. As a reward for speaking out about the undeniable threat of Islamic terrorism to Western Civilization, they have been banned from entering the country:

They were due to speak at an English Defence League march in Woolwich, where Drummer Lee Rigby was killed.

Readers will recall that Rigby was beheaded in broad daylight on a London street near his base by the Islamists Geller and Spencer have been warning us about — the sort Britain’s government has been importing in great numbers at still greater public expense.

A government spokesman said individuals whose presence “is not conducive to the public good” could be excluded by the home secretary.

He added: “We condemn all those whose behaviours and views run counter to our shared values and will not stand for extremism in any form.”

For those unclear on the meaning of the term, suggesting that we be wary of people who cut the heads off British soldiers on British streets is extremism. Banning entry into the country by those deemed likely to say something not conforming to politically correct dhimmitude is not extremism.

Careful; this could case irony overload:

Anti-fascism campaigners Hope Not Hate had campaigned for the pair to not be allowed into the UK.

That is, freedom of speech is quashed lest someone criticize the fascistic ideology of violent Islamists — all in the name of “anti-fascism.”

Meanwhile, foreigners from foreign lands who preach terrorist violence against non-Muslims are not only allowed in Britain, they are generously paid to live there. The most outrageous examples include the welfare colonists Anjem Choudary and Abu Qatada.

Those left in Britain who deserve to call themselves Britons are advised to rise up and restore your country while it is still conceivable.

In Attempt to Get George Zimmerman Killed, Spike Lee Retweets the Wrong Address

Left-wing director Spike Lee, a favorite of particularly phony liberal trendoids, retweeted George Zimmerman’s address to his moonbat followers, in hopes of getting him killed or at the very least getting his house burned down as punishment for the neighborhood watch captain defending himself from the vicious punk who was bashing his head against the sidewalk. Spike not being very bright, he sent out the wrong address:

An elderly Florida couple have been forced to move into a hotel after their home address was wrongly tweeted as belonging to the man who shot teen Trayvon Martin.

The tweets were traced back to a man in California and the address was also reportedly retweeted by director Spike Lee to his almost 250,000 followers.

The couple, aged 70 and 72, have been harassed with hate mail, been hassled by media and had scared neighbors questioning them since the tweet, their son Chip Humble told the Orlando Sentinel.

Fearful for their safety, and hoping to escape the spotlight, the couple have temporarily moved to a hotel.

The confusion seems to stem from the fact the woman’s son is named William George Zimmerman and he lived briefly at the address in 1995.

When William Zimmerman pleaded with the man who tweeted the address, the man responded, “Black power all day. No justice, no peace” along with an obscenity.

That is the closest thing to a reasonable conversation you can have with the sort who would glorify Trayvon Martin.

Occupy Melbourne Moonbat Fleeces Taxpayers for Absurd Art Projects

Where do the useless layabouts comprising the Occupy Wall Street infestations get the money for their iPods? From capitalist exploiters, of course. Sometimes it is received voluntarily, as gifts from their parents. Other times, government coercion is required to spread wealth around from those who create it to those who piously denounce it, as in the case of Carl Scrase:

An Occupy Melbourne protester who claims to be against capitalist greed has taken $17,000 in grants and awards.

In return for generous patronage, Melbourne artist Carl Scrase has delivered a postcard of his hand, a bull-nose paper clip sculpture and a collage of cut up photographs of his face on a wooden board.

Scrase, 28, who is a key player in the Occupy Melbourne movement, said his artwork was about “creating conversations”.

A participant in these conversions is Melbourne Mayor Robert Doyle, who wonders,

“If we are so terrible and they have to occupy us indefinitely until capitalism falls, well then where are they going to get their grants from?”

(di)Scrase declares that he is anti-greed. According to moonbats, it’s not greedy to acquire money, so long as you do it through government coercion and not voluntary exchange.

Kathleen Sebelius Proclaims That Government Meddling in Healthcare Is a Matter of National Security

Kathleen Sebelius, whom ObamaCare makes one of the most powerful people in the world, unsurprisingly wants this hated attempt to nationalize the healthcare industry to survive challenges on the grounds of its blatant unconstitutionality. The rhetoric she’s resorting to is enough to cause high blood pressure:

During a visit to the South Carolina coast, Sebelius spoke with a black nurses group and then was to attend a conference on improving access to health care.

The nation’s health “really is an issue of national security,” she told the nurses group…

Once again we see that the Obama Regime is incapable of grasping the meaning of the term national security. But then, maybe Ms. Supercilious (aka the Abortion Queen) has a point. If Obama’s power grabs aren’t a matter of national security, what could be?

Try to imagine the Abortion Queen next meeting with a white nurses group, just to be fair — if there were such a thing. This offers a clue as to why public policy benefits strident minorities at the expense of everyone else.

When this is applied to federal control of healthcare, which will mean rationing here just as it has everywhere else that has succumbed to socialized medicine, your skin color could cost you your life — unless you’re lucky enough to have oppressed skin color. Already the funding of studies by the moonbats running the National Institutes of Health has resulted in an unproductive obsession with mostly nonexistent “healthcare disparities” at the expense of meaningful scientific research. Curing cancer would be nice, but the real money goes to researching the possibility that tumors hurt worse for polysexual African American dwarves due to historic insensitivities.

NYC to Raise Monuments to Rioting Drag Queens

Monuments reflect a society’s values. A healthy society reveres heroes of the past who serve to inspire the current generation to live admirably. New York City under moonbat rule has a different orientation:

Sylvia Rivera and Marsha P. Johnson … will be honored with a public monument in New York City, officials announced Thursday.

Rivera and Johnson were drag queens. In addition to their psychosexual disorders, Johnson was a violent schizophrenic who required antipsychotic medication.

Their claim to fame is their leadership role in antipolice riots that took place in 1969. The Stonewall Riots “helped usher in a new, militant phase of the movement for gay rights.” That phase continues to this day. The effect on American culture has been catastrophic.

The Stonewall Inn where the riots began is a Greenwich Village bar that was owned by the Mafia. It is now regarded as sacred ground by moonbats:

In 2016, President Barack Obama designated the site of the riots—Stonewall Inn, Christopher Park, and the surrounding streets and sidewalks—a national monument in recognition of the area’s contribution to gay and human rights.

Johnson and Rivera founded the Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries. Like many who make a lifestyle out of sin, they died relatively young, at ages 46 and 50, respectively. Johnson’s death may have been suicide.

To put up public monuments to perverts because they took part in riots is so grotesque as to be surreal. It takes place as monuments to truly great men like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Christopher Columbus, and of course Robert E. Lee are under attack.

This story is appalling but no longer surprising, considering that Harvey Milk, who is revered for having been a sexual deviant and who preyed on troubled teenage boys, has a street, a ship, a stamp, a movie, a holiday, and a Medal of Freedom in his honor.

Moonbats Start Purging Classic Movies

Given that there is no sector of society more rigidly controlled by leftist Jacobins than entertainment, it is only a matter of time until the War on History turns its attention from tearing down statues of Robert E. Lee and Christopher Columbus to purge our cultural history of classic movies.

Anything filmed earlier than last week probably violates some aspect of ever-evolving political correctness. Christian Toto notes that the movie purge is already getting started:

Two years ago, a Memphis theater nixed a screening of the 1939 classic “Gone with the Wind” because of its “insensitive” content.

Disney’s Oscar-winning “Song of the South” won’t be seen on the company’s forthcoming streaming platform. The 1946 film’s antiquated, and some say racist, portrayal of black life turned the movie into cultural poison. It’s never made it to home video, and that’s unlikely to change in the near future.

Once an actor has been unpersoned, anything he appeared in may be subject to erasure. For example, Bounce TV has pulled reruns of The Cosby Show, HBO disappeared all programming including Louis C.K., and Amazon declined to release Woody Allen’s A Rainy Day in New York due to sexual shenanigans, which constitute political crimes in the #MeToo era.

A purge would be bad news for fans of classic westerns, considering that moonbats have already demanded that John Wayne Airport be renamed because the Duke was supposedly racist.

If you want to watch classic movies on cable, you will probably end up at Turner Classic Movies. Consider the rabidly left-wing politics of hosts like Ben Mankiewicz, Eddie Muller, and Alec Baldwin, and that TCM was founded by demented leftist Ted Turner. Not exactly a trustworthy guardian of our cultural heritage.

People used to collect DVDs. Increasingly, movies we buy live somewhere off in the cloud. It isn’t hard to imagine John Wayne movies simply vanishing overnight. Then they would erase the next retroactive thought criminal, then the next and the next.

Antifa Vandalizes, Conspires With Cartel, Earns Liberal Praise

It looks like we will never agree on anything, if we can’t even agree that Antifa are the bad guys. Recent Antifa news includes vandalism in an attempt to undermine US border defense with soft terrorism and an alleged plot to work with a foreign cartel to attack Border Patrol agents.

From Portland, where Antifa has waged war against ICE with the backing of local government (see here and here):

Sometime over the weekend, anonymous vandals stuck a garden hose through the front-door mail slot of lawyer Sean Riddell’s Northeast Portland office and left the water running.

Who would do such a thing and why? A Willamette Week reporter learned the answer by email.

The email, signed “some anarchists,” claims responsibility and says the authors hoped to “cause maximum economic damage” to Riddell because he provides legal representation to the National ICE Council, the union for local employees of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Damage was extensive. Apparently, insurance will cover it. That means everyone who buys insurance gets to pay. Thanks Antifa!

Antifa appears to be escalating from juvenile pranks, Occupy antics, and street brawl violence in the direction of genuine terrorism. This story could be a milestone:

The FBI is unraveling an alleged plot, where Antifa members planned to provoke an armed rebellion at the U.S. border. …

The scheme involves left-wing activists buying guns and receiving militia training from cartel members in order to attack U.S. Border Patrol agents, and to disrupt their operations.

If that doesn’t qualify as treason, we may as well throw the word out of the legal code.

The paper trail appears to point to a plot hatched between Antifa activist Evan Duke III and a Mexican-based cartel associate known as “Cobra Commander.” …

While the men say they have never met, both were flagged by U.S. Customs and Border Protection for their involvement at the Tijuana border when violence broke out between November of 2018 and January of this year. Hundreds of migrants rushed the border, some throwing rocks, forcing Border Patrol agents to respond with tear gas.

That was a big opportunity for the media, which struck this mighty blow against the USA’s territorial sovereignty:

Speaking of the media,

By “neo-Nazis,” Cuomo is referring to anyone who does not want Robert E. Lee perp-walked to the Memory Hole.

It isn’t just the media wing; the political wing of Leftism Inc likes Antifa too:

Biden launched his campaign for president by praising the group. He referred to a group of protesters who gathered in Charlottesville, VA, and violently confronted white nationalists “a courageous group of Americans.”

The “white nationalists” include everyone there who was lawfully protesting the tearing down of a Robert E. Lee statue. The other people there had come explicitly to pick a fight. Authorities stood by and let it happen.

If America succumbs to moonbattery, Antifa will be our answer to the Brownshirts — hard as it has been to take these clowns seriously.

USC’s Totalitarian Task Force on University Nomenclature

The liberal War on History that went into high gear with the campaign to rid America of references to the Confederacy did not stop with erasing prominent historical figures like Robert E. Lee. Everyone who has a building named after him must be tried before the court of current leftist orthodoxy. Those who fail to pass muster are consigned to the Memory Hole. The University of Southern California has created a task force for this very purpose:

In a memo Monday, Provost Michael Quick said the community is “having important conversations about the names of certain buildings, monuments, and symbols” that “may evoke views and practices that we no longer support.”

These elements of campus also “may cause pain for members of our community,” interfering in the private university’s quest to be “a national leader in equity and inclusion” and create a “safe, welcoming, and supportive campus,” Quick wrote.

Quick proclaimed the formation of the Task Force on University Nomenclature.

When a society succumbs to totalitarianism, fame is no antidote to mortality. No matter how mainstream your views are in the present, if they pass through a period of political incorrectness in the future, you will be condemned as “problematic” and erased. No one escapes from the Thought Police, least of all great figures of history, because those who control the present control the past.

Ben Carson Consigned to Memory Hole

We knew from the beginning that the purge would not stop with great historical figures of the South like Robert E. Lee. Encountering little resistance, the jihad quickly moved on to figures representing America (George Washington) or Western Civilization in general (Christopher Columbus). Already moonbats are beginning to consign black conservatives like Ben Carson to the Memory Hole:

The Benjamin Carson High School of Science and Medicine near the Detroit Medical Center has an ambitious program of preparing its mostly African-American students for careers in medicine.

In a sane world, Ben Carson would be a role model for blacks, having worked his way from the Detroit ghetto to the top of society as a famous brain surgeon, presidential candidate, and current Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. In a world addled by moonbattery, he is an embarrassment, who undermines the narrative that it is no use exerting yourself because you can’t achieve anything unless Big Government steals it from Whitey and hands it to you.

The Detroit school board voted to rename the school under guidelines that say a school can be renamed when it doesn’t reflect the student population or when “information newly discovered about the current name of the school is negative in nature.”

LaMar Lemmons, a Democrat, was the leading advocate for removing Ben Carson’s name from the school.

Lemmons spells out Carson’s specific crime:

“Quite frankly, it is a political thing,” he admitted. “We named a school after an individual who is in the Trump administration.”

Any Republican is subject to erasure. That is probably why Obama decreed that we must now call Mount McKinley (named for a Republican president) “Mount Denali.”

“When you align yourself with Trump, that is a direct affront to the city of Detroit and the students of Detroit,” [Lemmons] insisted.

Black unemployment has fallen to record lows under Trump. But blacks are told to hate all things Trump because he is racist against them as evidenced by… as evidenced by nothing whatsoever. Actually, they are told to hate him because he is now a Republican.

Carson isn’t the only black conservative leftists want forgotten even before he has left office:

Last month, a petition to change the name of Savannah College of Art and Design’s Clarence Thomas Center for Historic Preservation received favorable media coverage.

When demographics allow Democrats to achieve sufficient power, everything named after someone associated with their opposition will be renamed.

Astronaut Scott Kelly Issues Shameful Apology

It takes courage to be an astronaut. Apparently, it takes more courage to stand up to the leftist mob. In the context of bellyaching about Brett Kavanaugh having survived Democrat smear tactics, astronaut Scott Kelly (twin brother of the odious Mark Kelly) sent out a tweet quoting a giant of modern history, Winston Churchill:

As we know from the War on Statues that started with Robert E. Lee and quickly moved on to other great men including Christopher Columbus, Thomas Jefferson, and George Washington himself, Cultural Marxists have been attempting to erase Western culture by demonizing and then unpersoning the heroes who define our heritage. Winston Churchill is too worthy of admiration to escape the hatred of progressives. They turned their ire on Kelly — who less than heroically responded with a cringing apology for quoting the thought criminal:

Using the phrase “educate myself” is the equivalent of crawling on your hands and knees in self-abasement before the depraved gods of political correctness.

There is only one thing more terrifying than the totalitarian mentality of liberals: the pusillanimity of the invertebrates who cower in the face of their bullying. If the nation Churchill led during the Battle of Britain had been made of the same soupy stuff as Kelly, their grandchildren would be speaking German now.

Even anti–self-defense zealot Piers Morgan is disgusted. He doesn’t think much of Taylor Swift allowing herself to be bullied into siding against the admirable Marsha Blackburn in the Tennessee Senate race either:

Joe Biden Calls Republicans “Dregs of Society”

Most people who follow politics understand that it was not a wise move when Hillary Clinton, while running for president, denounced half of the American population as a “basket of deplorables.” But Joe Biden is not most people.

Despite his advanced age and general unsuitability for the office, Biden is likely to run for president in 2020. Yet while pandering to the militant LGBT galère Human Rights Campaign, he barked that supporters of the current president include “the dregs of society.”

“Forces of intolerance remain determined to undermine and roll back the progress you have made,” the former vice president warned his audience.

“This time they–not you–have an ally in the White House,” he said.

“They’re a small percentage of the American people, virulent people. Some of them, the dregs of society,” Biden said.

The “forces of intolerance” are those not on board with the LBGT agenda. What a relief to hear that only some of us are the dregs of society according to a top Democrat.

But actually, by “some,” he means “all,” as he soon makes clear in a reference to the August 2017 event in Charlottesville that saw leftist counterprotesters descend upon a demonstration by defenders of a targeted Civil War statue. Regrettably, one of the moonbats was run over by a maniac, providing ammunition to demagogues like Joe Biden, who yaps,

“We have leaders who at the time when that occurred, when these guys were accompanied by white supremacists and Ku Klux Klan…making a comparison saying there are good people in both groups.”

Trump should know better than try to be even-handed. As Biden enlightens us, there are no good people who oppose the leftist agenda. Such people are accompanied by white supremacists and the Ku Klux Klan. Every last person who doesn’t want statues of Robert E. Lee torn down is rotten to the core, and Trump is rotten for suggesting otherwise. The whole lot are the dregs of society.

You can see why Joe Biden is so enthused about the idea of a new America in which Caucasians are a minority. America as it always has been is full of people he hates.

Offensive Songs That Wouldn’t Be Allowed Now

Social justice warriors must be unable to find anything in today’s world that doesn’t cringingly conform to their bullying ideology, because they have been digging into history in search of thought crimes. Paul Joseph Watson has a laugh at moonbats who clutch their pearls over allegedly offensive songs of the past:

If historical figures like Robert E. Lee and even the Founding Fathers can be banished to the Memory Hole for not complying with the up-to-the-minute dictates of political correctness after all context has been stripped away, why not songs? Just to play it safe, maybe we should ban any song written more than a year ago.
