Episcopal Church Replaces St. George With LGBTism

After a church has been infiltrated and subverted, it no longer exists to worship God but on the contrary to worship sin. The Episcopal Church has made this explicit:

From the Office of Public Affairs:

In affirmation and celebration of The Episcopal Church’s LGBTQ+ members, the Office of Communication is pleased to unveil a new Pride shield available online for churchwide use.

It is not LGBTetc members that are being celebrated, or the church would help them redeem themselves. It is their behavior. Church members are called upon to revere a symbol for sexual perversion in place of the Cross.

The social engineers are at war with both Christianity and Western history. They removed the Cross of Saint George that was the main feature of the original shield logo. Not the Bee is not pleased:

THEY ERASED THE 500-YEAR-HISTORY OF THE ENGLISH REFORMATION THAT ESTABLISHED THEIR DENOMINATION, BUILT UPON THE MARTYRDOM OF A 1,700-YEAR-OLD SAINT WHO DIED FOR JESUS CHRIST, AND REPLACED IT WITH THE GAY COMMIE RAINBOW.

Saint George has been vaporized.

Queen Charlotte Gets a Race Change

The news media lies to our faces to promote moonbattery, so why shouldn’t museums?

The audio guide for the Royal Museums Greenwich tells visitors that despite what “insecure white boys” have said, George III’s wife was the first British royal from a non-white background.

Queen Charlotte’s purported ethnicity has been sidelined because of “structural racism”, according to the guide, which states that she was a “person of colour”.

Queen Charlotte was now mixed race because she is portrayed that way in a Netflix series — just as Cleopatra was falsely depicted as a Negress. The leftist ideologues running the entertainment industry are rewriting history to suit their narrative. This fake history is replacing the education youth would receive if leftists hadn’t destroyed the schools.

Queen Charlotte was of German ancestry. But factual accuracy is not a priority among those entrusted to preserve our heritage:

The history trail with its own online audio guide was created for Royal Museums Greenwich by Christian Adore, a self-declared “homosexual historian” seeking to share “deliciously gay stories” from the past.

Royal Museums Greenwich’s largest site is the Nation Maritime Museum, where curators’ contempt for British history takes the form of belittling its greatest heroes:

In one interactive display, a bust of Lord Nelson is berated by a “migrant goddess” figure, who tells heroic British admirals to “move over” to make room for “unsung heroes of the sea”.

The audiovisual display states that the “bravery and resilience” of Nelson, who was killed during the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805, is also shared by others, including migrants who make sea crossings.

Leftists degrade and destroy Western Civilization because they hate it. They are the worst people on earth to put in charge of museums.

Racist Decries Lack of Blacks in Depiction of Feudal Japan

These days, everything that ever happened anywhere gets shoehorned into Afrocentric ideology:

The 2024 version of Shogun begins in 1600, as did the 1980 version, both based on the novel by James Clavell. …

1980 Shogun, starring Richard Chamberlain, also reinforced the white savior trope, far too common in film, television, and history books.

The 2024 version focuses far more on the Japanese perspective. The white characters appearing in the first episodes representing Portugal, Spain, England, and Holland could hardly be deemed heroic.

So far so woke. A part of Americana “hailed by many as a cinematic wonder” has been reconstructed so as to comply with liberal establishment ideology by denigrating Caucasians. But wait:

I ask the question now that I naively didn’t ask in 1980. Where are the Black people?

Answer: somewhere other than feudal Japan. However, author William Spivey asserts with a straight face that a shogun who lived in the 8th century was black.

Care to guess Spivey’s racial background?

Indians Erased From American Museum of Natural History

According to progressive doctrine, it is racist not to expunge Indians from American culture. Leftist bullies have imposed name changes on sports teams and iconic landmarks like Squaw Peak in Phoenix. They deleted the Indian maiden from butter packaging. They even canceled the crying Indian from the old public service ads that encouraged us not to litter. Now they are purging Indians from museums:

History lovers slammed the American Museum of Natural History for shuttering all its Native American-related displays Friday, with one disappointed historophile saying the now-empty major exhibition halls and display cabinets show “history being made secret.”

Museum director Sean Decatur explains why nearly 10,000 square feet of exhibition space that featured Indians now stands empty:

“The halls we are closing are artifacts of an era when museums such as ours did not respect the values, perspectives and indeed shared humanity of Indigenous peoples.”

That is, Indians have been canceled because moonbattery.

Again the federal government imposes wokeness:

The alterations are a response to new federal regulations that went into effect this month regarding the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act…

In Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, firemen don’t put out fires; they start them, burning down houses in which books have been discovered. Likewise, in our real life dystopia, museums don’t preserve history; they erase it.

Future generations will hardly know that Indians existed, another aspect of American heritage having been senselessly destroyed by the cultural vandalism of liberal social engineers.

Early Swedes Were Now Black

It would be hard to imagine a group of people less black than characteristically blond and blue-eyed Swedes. But no lie is too outlandish to be rammed down the public’s throat by the moonbats running state media as they wage war on history to bring it into compliance with their hostile ideology:

As the Nordic Times reported last year,

The first Swedes are portrayed by black Africans and people from the Middle East in Sweden’s tax-funded state TV channel SVT’s blockbuster “History of Sweden”. Critics accuse SVT of falsifying history and the ‘experts’ involved of spreading propaganda for ideological reasons.

Historien om Sverige (The history of Sweden) is not just any TV series, but SVT’s biggest ever historical venture, which has taken three years to produce and will be broadcast this fall.

Europeans may have had darker skin in caveman days than they do now. As the theory goes, lighter skin evolved to help synthesize vitamin D. Even so:

Seven people from the 7700-year-old Motala archaeological site in southern Sweden had both light skin gene variants, SLC24A5 and SLC45A2. They also had a third gene, HERC2/OCA2, which causes blue eyes and may also contribute to light skin and blond hair. Thus ancient hunter-gatherers of the far north were already pale and blue-eyed…

But then, if Anne Boleyn could be black, why not Swedes? Believe — or prepare to get canceled for being a racist.

If all goes well for leftist social engineers, they will eventually use their control of the media to convince all Caucasians that they and those in their immediate physical vicinity are the only white people who ever existed.

Pushback Saves William Penn From Biden Regime

The Democrat campaign to eradicate America by erasing its history has suffered a rare setback:

The National Park Service on Monday reversed its decision to tear down a statue of Pennsylvania founder William Penn at a historic park just days after a widespread public backlash against the Biden administration agency’s move began online.

The idea was to replace the revered hero Penn — whose only crimes were to be Caucasian and to represent American heritage — with taxpayer-funded propaganda celebrating Stone Age savagery.

The original plan to remove the statue in order to create a more “welcoming, accurate, and inclusive experience for visitors” was widely panned and ridiculed.

That ridicule must be relentless. Leftists were never likely to stop with statues of Robert E. Lee. All great Americans will be erased if we do not push back.

Moonbats Transsexualize Dinosaur

Despite having been extinct for millions of years, not even dinosaurs are beyond the reach of social engineers. A Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton has been declared to be transsexual:

The Chicago Field Museum, where the T. rex lives and tweets, justified this lunacy on the spurious grounds that it is quite difficult to determine the sex of old dinosaur specimens (it’s not even certain if such creatures had true external genitalia at all). Therefore, as curators did not know for sure whether the specimen was a boy-lizard or a girl-lizard, they made the insane leap in logic that it was actually a trans one.

The dinosaur goes by the name SUE (all cap, possibly to distinguish from the Johnny Cash song) and uses gender neutral pronouns.

After the skeleton proclaimed itself nonbinary,

SUE was being moved to another exhibition space, which online activists realised meant it would need all its labels rewritten. Queer lobbyists contacted the museum demanding the T. rex now adopt gender-neutral pronouns permanently on the grounds that “Misgendering SUE didn’t just misrepresent the dinosaur, it risked invalidating the credibility SUE’s pronouns had given to nonbinary individuals.”

Everything everywhere must primarily focus on ramming depravity down people’s throats — even paleontology, which LGBTists have taken to calling gay-leontology to emphasize their campaign to subvert the field and subordinate it to their agenda.

BBC Denounces Medieval Plague as Racist

Every sector of society is now devoted to fabricating racism — even archeology, which has been enlisted to prove that the Plague discriminated against black women:

Black women of African descent were more likely to die of the medieval plague in London, academics at the Museum of London have found.

That must be why they called it the Black Death.

Data on bone and dental changes of the 145 individuals from East Smithfield emergency plague cemetery, St Mary Graces and St Mary Spital formed the basis of the study.

This primary data was then examined by applying a forensic anthropological toolkit to estimate whether the bones were likely to have come from someone with African heritage.

I could have spared the experts the trouble by reminding them that anyone buried in London in the 1300s was almost certainly not of African heritage.

Nonetheless, the study managed to reach its intended conclusion:

It found there were significantly higher proportions of people of colour and those of Black African descent in plague burials compared to non-plague burials.

We are told to believe that 18.4% of the plague burials were blacks. In 14th century England.

The research concluded that higher death rates amongst people of colour and those of black African descent was a result of the “devastating effects” of “premodern structural racism” in the medieval world.

The story is ludicrous even by BBC standards. But it must be admitted that there were black women in England long before welfare colonists started pouring in over the past few generations. Anne Boleyn was now black.

Museum Regenders Roman Emperor

The social engineers are coming after Roman emperors now:

The North Hertfordshire Museum has said it will be “sensitive” to the purported pronoun preferences of the third century AD ruler Elagabalus (also known as Heliogabalus).

Classical texts claim that Elagabalus asked to be called “lady” and asked to be termed wife, mistress and queen.

When a society begins to decay, degeneracy sets in among the people in charge. Rome was no exception. Tiberius was a pedophile. Caligula’s excesses are still infamous. However, in the case of Elagabalus, this may have been character assassination.

Cassius Dio, a Roman chronicler, wrote that Elagabalus was “termed wife, mistress and queen”, told one lover “Call me not Lord, for I am a Lady”, and asked for female genitalia to be fashioned for him.

However, Cassius Dio served the following emperor Severus Alexander, who took the throne after the assassination of Elagabalus.

One historian suggests that the accounts use his reputedly deviant behaviour as a justification for his assassination.

According to Cambridge classics professor Andrew Wallace-Hadrill,

“The Romans didn’t have our idea of ‘trans’ as a category, but they used accusations of sexual behaviour ‘as a woman’ as one of the worst insults against men.”

As well they might. It is inherently disgusting for men to behave like women. This has been understood throughout the world and throughout history.

Nonetheless, the North Hertfordshire Museum proclaims it will now refer to Elagabalus as “she” — a politically motivated lie.

Liberal Democrat councillor and executive member for arts at the Lib Dem and Labour coalition-run North Herts Council, said: “Elagabalus most definitely preferred the she pronoun, and as such this is something we reflect when discussing her in contemporary times.”

Rome now has its first woman emperor. Congratulations to Elagabalus for breaking the glass ceiling 1,800 years after he died.

Museums are supposed to preserve our heritage. In a world run by progressives, they disfigure and destroy it.

Nothing is sacred to moonbats except moonbattery. They might find the Roman Empire guilty of toxic masculinity and cancel it altogether, so that future generations will never know it existed.

Muslim–Moonbat Alliance Attacks Ben Franklin

On the topic of how much the pro-Palestinian mob hates Jews, media darling Ahed Tamimi shrieks:

“What Hitler did to you is a joke [compared to what we’ll do to you], we will slaughter you, drink your blood and eat your skull.”

Jews happen to be on the front lines, but this applies to all of us who consider ourselves part of Western Civilization. We are infidels/colonizers and we must be eradicated. Here’s the alliance at work closer to home:

At least they didn’t splatter it in red paint and then smash the statue to bits, like Black Lives Matter peaceful protesters would have done. But give it time. All remnants of Ben Franklin and rest of the Founding Fathers will share the fate of the great Robert E. Lee. American heritage will be erased if unadulterated evil as represented by the alliance of Muslims and leftists prevails.

Leftists Ceremonially Desecrate Robert E. Lee Statue

It doesn’t suffice for the giants of American history to be erased. First, their memory needs to be desecrated:

The statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee that once stood in Charlottesville, Virginia, was secretly melted down at a ceremonial event.

Everyone knew that taking down statues of this great man would not be enough, because so long as progressives encounter minimal resistance, nothing is ever enough — not even this:

The Washington Post reported that “Swords Into Plowshares,” a project led by University of Virginia religious studies professor Jalane Schmidt and Charlottesville’s Black history museum executive director Andrea Douglas, “will turn bronze ingots made from molten Lee into a new piece of public artwork to be displayed in Charlottesville. They made arrangements for Lee to be melted down while they started collecting ideas from city residents for that new sculpture.”

The great man who fought honorably for his homeland Virginia was denounced as “White supremacist toxic waste.”

Coercively funded government media tells us to approve of our history being defiled and flushed away:

NPR also covered the event and credited Swords Into Plowshares for its efforts to “create a more inclusive public art installation.”

That which you don’t defend will be taken from you. Americans have failed to defend their heritage.

Other great Virginians (e.g., George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, George Mason) will meet the same fate and for the same reason. This process is already underway.

No great American will be spared, not even Lee’s adversary Abraham Lincoln.

In compensation, future generations will be offered George Floyd to venerate and emulate.

Ferdinand Magellan Up for Cancelation

Even the giants who tower tallest in human history are to be erased for spreading Western Civilization and enabling hated Caucasians to flourish throughout the globe. Our moonbat rulers want to cancel Christopher Columbus, discoverer of the New World, repurposing the holiday in his honor as Stone Age Savages I mean Indigenous Peoples Day. They are even coming after the great Ferdinand Magellan:

A group of astronomers is coalescing around an idea to rename two neighbors of the Milky Way, the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds. …

Magellan’s name is not fitting, astronomer Mia de los Reyes and colleagues argue. The leader of the first expedition to successfully circle the globe, Magellan enslaved and killed Indigenous people encountered on the voyage, which set out from Spain in 1519.

For the crime of living in the 16th century, Magellan will now be erased.

Heroes might inspire us to future great feats. We are supposed to slump our shoulders and shuffle our feet, not stand proud. So down the memory hole he goes.

“Because we’re naming things in the night sky, which belongs to everyone, we think that it’s important to have names that reflect all of humanity,” says de los Reyes, of Amherst College in Massachusetts.

Mia is a Filipino American Woman of Color, so we should probably name the galaxies after her.

Before they are through deleting history, the first human to exist on earth will be Harriet Tubman.

New York May Cancel George Washington

Everyone knew when Robert E. Lee was canceled that it was only the beginning. George Washington was also a great man and a Virginian, and also lived back when people had owned slaves throughout the world since before recorded history; therefore, in New York:

The city’s Cultural Affairs Committee has demanded the eviction of George Washington and Christopher Columbus and others from public spaces because of links to slavery, along with the establishment of a reparations task force.

Meanwhile, the city is flat broke, having flushed away $12 billion on being a sanctuary for illegal aliens at the expense of the native population. Ten thousand grasping invaders pour into the declining city every month. No worries; federal taxpayers are sure to bail it out.

The Committee plans to remove any public statue or work of art that ‘depicts a person who owned enslaved persons or directly benefited economically from slavery, or who participated in systemic crimes against indigenous peoples or other crimes against humanity’.

From the liberal viewpoint, that means anyone who lived at the time of the nation’s founding.

Dozens of prominent statues across the city are at risk including those depicting Thomas Jefferson and former governor Peter Stuyvesant.

By erasing our history, they erase our identity. Then they can create a new identity as a nation of farm animals content to stay in their pens so long as they are fed free slop until it is time for a trip to the slaughterhouse.

As Todd Starnes jokes,

There are multiple statues and monuments to Washington, including Washington Square Park and the George Washington Bridge. It’s unclear whether the park and bridge will be leveled or just simply renamed.

At this point, maybe they should level the whole city and start over.

After the Father of Our Country has had his hero status revoked, he will be defiled and demonized before he is frog-marched to the memory hole and forgotten. Maybe the authorities will decide he impregnated a slave. That is a favorite liberal calumny against the author of the Declaration of Independence, whose statue leftists have already removed from City Hall.

This is cultural genocide. If we fail to defeat liberalism, Americans will soon cease to exist in any meaningful sense.

Liberals Cancel Robert E. Lee’s Horse

Liberals have not finished erasing Americans who fought for the South, but in their fanaticism have already begun to go after their horses:

Traveller, the horse which served Confederate General Robert E. Lee, has long been a fixture of campus culture at Washington and Lee University, as the famous steed, known for his courage and stamina, is buried on campus.

But Traveller’s Confederate connections recently led university officials to remove two markers erected in his honor, his gravestone as well as a plaque honoring the beloved companion. …

Traveller served Lee both during the Civil War and afterwards, when the ex-general became president of the then-Washington College. Lee was president from 1865 until his death in 1871. Traveller died a few months later.

Lee was a great man who defended his home, Virginia. For moonbats, that is all the more reason to erase him.

Here’s why Traveller has to go down the memory hole:

One campus tradition is to place apples and pennies beside Traveller’s gravestone.

The apples are “because horses like apples,” [Kamron] Spivey [president of Students for Historical Preservation] said, and the “pennies are sort of a shot at Lincoln and the Union, placing the coin tails-up so that Lincoln is essentially kissing the grave of a horse.”

Despite Lincoln himself having been denounced as a white supremacist and slated for cancelation (see here, here, here, and here), resistance sentiment cannot be allowed.

Leftists are devoid of tolerance and grace. Expect the name of the school to be changed before long.

Liberals’ compulsion to erase from existence anything they associate with opposition to their repugnant ideology is their most frightening characteristic.
