Gadsden Flag Denounced as Thought Crime

We didn’t push back hard enough when they declared that the Confederate Flag — a symbol not only of the South but also of rebellion — was denounced as racist and banished. Consequently, social engineers are now doing the same to the revolutionary Gadsden Flag, likewise a symbol of both heritage and rebellion.

Actor Chris Pratt was caught wearing a variation on the Gadsden Flag. Yahoo News helped gin up the lynch mob:

Pratt is facing criticism over a T-shirt he was pictured wearing featuring a controversial symbol.

Why the hell would the Gadsden Flag be controversial to an American? It stands for American liberty. Next they’ll be coming after the original Betsy Ross Flag. Oh that’s right, they already have.

Although [the Gadsden Flag] is one of the symbols and flags used by the U.S. Men’s Soccer Team, Metallica, as well as some libertarian groups, over the years the flag has been adopted by Far Right political groups like the Tea Party, as well as gun-toting supporters of the Second Amendment.

Note that they openly vilify support for the US Constitution.

The piece goes on to feature Twitter denunciations of Pratt by Jacobins eager to drag him to guillotine, starting with one that proclaims the Gadsden Flag to be a “white supremacist dogwhistle.” Gullible readers are left with the impression that anything associated with the American Revolution and/or defense of the US Constitution is “white supremacist” and therefore bad.

It is now common for “mainstream” news articles to consist largely of deliberate lies motivated by an increasingly open hatred of American heritage.

Liberals also bitterly denounce Pratt for attending a proper church. How a regular American like Pratt survives in New Gomorrah aka Hollyweird is a mystery.

Thought criminal Chris Pratt caught in flagrante delicto.

Confederate Railroad Unpersoned

The Southern rock band Confederate Railroad has been unpersoned. It has been around since the 1980s, but those who conform to goodthink will henceforth refuse to acknowledge its existence.

WSIL reports from rural southern Illinois on the first step in Southern Railroad’s eradication:

A band has been removed from the Du Quoin State Fair lineup.

Confederate Railroad will no longer perform on August 27.

The Du Quoin Weekly reports the band was removed because of their name.

The bureauweenies at the Illinois Department of Agriculture made the decision.

As everyone knew at the time, tearing down statues of Robert E. Lee was only the beginning. Anything explicitly referencing the South as a sociohistorical entity will be erased. Leftists are afraid that opposition will rally around the concept of the South. After all, the Confederate flag is a symbol of rebellion.

Regarding Confederate Railroad, Conservative Tribune notes that “there’s no indication that their name has any political undertones besides as tip of the hat to the southern roots of their music genre.”

The Dukes of Hazard did not have political undertones either. That did not stop it from going down the memory hole because liberals did not approve of the flag atop their car.

Band member Danny Shirley confirms that the point of the name is to indicate that they are “proud to be from the South.” That’s why his band is “problematic,” to use a favorite term of the Thought Police. You are not allowed to be proud to be from the South. You can be proud to engage in perverted sex acts though.

Between the relentless bullying of liberals and the submissive cowardice of everyone else, before long we will have no culture but liberal culture. In the midst of this cultural genocide, we have to listen to them preach at us about diversity.

If you like Lynyrd Skynyrd, be advised that the band is living on borrowed time. Don’t stream it; get it onto your hard drive where they can’t make it disappear.

The Left’s Goal: Cancel America

“No Trump, no wall, no USA at all,” chant the moonbats. This gives away what progressives are progressing toward. They want to cancel America.

In the video below, Black Pigeon Speaks lists revolutionary communists burning Old Glory in front of the White House on the Fourth, Nike nixing the original US flag, sports teams abolishing “God Bless America,” and the accelerating campaign to erase Thomas Jefferson as evidence that the Left is deliberately destroying American civilization.

Leftists’ primary strategy, Cultural Marxism (aka political correctness), is a wrecking ball; it is highly effective for demolition, but useless for anything else. That doesn’t matter, because leftists are not interested in building, merely in demoralizing and destroying. When they have demolished America, they will replace it with nothing, because nothing is what nihilists believe in.

The various causes they champion are superficial, phony, and often patently asinine. But the issue is never the issue; the issue is always the revolution. The revolution is an act of vandalism drawing on nothing deeper than malice and lust for power. At the heart of what we now call liberalism is a black hole — a deadly vacuum created by absolute emptiness.

Anyone unfamiliar with the Thomas Jefferson quote he hints at in the video is encouraged to have a look before it becomes illegal:

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. - Thomas Jefferson

You can see why a Democrat presidential candidate would want TJ erased. Vacuous tyrants tend to be cowards.

The Terrifying Trajectory of Progress

Progressives call it progress, and it is happening fast. Check out how fast we have progressed since 2013:

Those Betsy Ross Flags on the ends now constitute thought crimes. Nike finds the USA’s original flag unworthy to adorn sneakers, because it is a product of the Enlightenment, which liberals regard as racist because it was an era of slavery (like every era that had preceded it). Presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke concurs that the Betsy Ross Flag is ideologically unclean.

Like virtually everyone in 2004, Obama opposed the blasphemous travesty of homosexual marriage. In 2015, he had the White House lit up in the rainbow colors representing the LGBT agenda when the Supreme Court imposed it on the states. By that time, his weaponized IRS had already gotten Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich fired by leaking that Eich privately defended the millennia-old traditional definition of marriage.

Follow the trajectory. Unless there is major pushback fast, progressives will erase everything that makes America be America within a few years.

San Francisco to Destroy George Washington Mural

Looks like George Washington will be following fellow Founding Father Thomas Jefferson into the memory hole. From AP:

San Francisco will spend up to $600,000 to paint over historical artwork at a public school depicting the life of George Washington, a mural once seen as educational and innovative but now criticized as racist and degrading for its depiction of black and Native American people.

Anything depicting a Caucasian is likely to be seen as “racist and degrading” to strategically aggrieved racial groups these days. Even to remind people of the Enlightenment period that produced George Washington is offensive. That is the reason Nike gave for opposing the Betsy Ross Flag.

The “Life of Washington” was painted by Victor Arnautoff, one of the foremost muralists in the San Francisco area during the Depression.

In those days, San Francisco was part of America. Even so, Arnautoff was a Russian-born communist, who apparently intended the fresco as a critique of Washington. At the time, it was considered radical. Now, it isn’t radical enough.

The San Francisco School Board’s decision to paint over the 83-year-old mural is prompting some to worry that other artwork from the so-called New Deal era could face a similar fate because of changing sensitivities.

This won’t stop at the New Deal era. The War on History demands that everything produced before yesterday be demonized and/or erased. Only a people with no heritage is malleable enough to be forged into suitable inhabitants for utopia.

The name of the school is George Washington High School. No doubt that will be changed to something more suitable, like Huey Newton High.

Charlottesville Shoves Thomas Jefferson Toward Memory Hole

Meanwhile, as patriotic Americans prepare to celebrate the magnificent document Thomas Jefferson bestowed upon our country, moonbats are erasing him from his hometown:

Charlottesville, Virginia, will no longer celebrate Thomas Jefferson’s birthday as an official city holiday and instead will observe a day recognizing the emancipation of enslaved African-Americans.

That will stick it good to Jefferson, who like most Virginia landowners of his time owned slaves.

Jefferson, the third President of the USA and among its greatest, founded the University of Virginia, which is located in Charlottesville.

Charlottesville will now mark Liberation and Freedom Day on March 3, the day U.S. Army forces arrived in the city in 1865.

That is, Virginians will now celebrate their ancestors losing the bloody Civil War.

If progressives prevail, only foreign historians will be able to name the author of the Declaration of Independence a generation from now. At least it is reassuring that scholars in other countries may continue to revere this titan of history, even after he has been frog-marched down the memory hole by his vast inferiors in the country that he played such a major role in creating.

Nike Pulls Patriotic Sneakers on Orders From Colin Kaepernick

Nike has deep-sixed patriotic sneakers featuring the original Betsy Ross flag because vehemently anti-American washed-up former football player Colin Kaepernick expressed disapproval.

Kaepernick, best known for indulging in disrespectful antics when the national anthem was played during his bygone football career, proclaims that the original flag of the USA is offensive. So Nike, which has positioned itself as the official sneaker company of the radical Left by paying Kaepernick to represent it, pulled the shoe after it had already been sent to retailers.

The sneaker giant created the Air Max 1 USA in celebration of the July Fourth holiday, and it was slated to go on sale this week. The heel of the shoe featured a U.S. flag with 13 white stars in a circle, a design created during the American Revolution and commonly referred to as the Betsy Ross flag. …

After images of the shoe were posted online, Mr. Kaepernick, a Nike endorser, reached out to company officials saying that he and others felt the Betsy Ross flag is an offensive symbol because of its connection to an era of slavery…

Anything associated with the Enlightenment, which gave birth to America, must be erased because there was still slavery during this period, as there had always been.

To give a hostile cockroach like Colin Kaepernick veto power over our heritage is the most disgusting thing to come out of a moonbattery-addled corporation yet. The most sacred symbols of America now face consignment to the memory hole as thought crimes.

If it were up to Nike, the Fourth of July would be canceled, because apparently Kaepernick finds that offensive too.

Harvard Medical School Erases White Male Scientists

Harvard has found a solution to the historical lack of diversity when it comes to scientific accomplishment — simply erase white male scientists. Jeffrey S. Flier, professor of medicine and former dean of Harvard Medical School, struggles to get with the program:

The walls were entirely bare. Thirty-one oil portraits of medical and scientific leaders that had made the room distinctive were gone. …

I’d been to the Bornstein auditorium of Brigham and Women’s Hospital many times during 40 years on the Harvard Medical School faculty and nine years as its dean. But when I arrived in the early morning several weeks ago to lecture to the hospital’s storied department of medicine, I was startled upon entering the familiar venue.

A year earlier, The Boston Globe reported that the portraits would be removed as part of a diversity initiative, but I hadn’t seen the result. What I experienced was not diversity, but sterility.

“Institutions commission portraits to acknowledge past contributions and to narrate institutional history,” Dr Flier observes.

The past was bad because it did not comply with current liberal dogma. History is bad because it does not support the progressive narrative. Down the memory hole they go.

Good thing we can erase white male scientists without erasing their discoveries, which make modern life possible. Unfortunately, this does not hold true going forward. But maybe if we pour enough public money down Affirmative Action scholarships, a Person of Politically Preferred Pigmentation will come up with a big medical breakthrough.

War on the West Claims Mission Bell in Santa Cruz

Moonbats must be down in the dumps, after only two of the Supremes proved malevolent enough to want to tear down a 40-foot-high, 100-year-old World War I memorial in Maryland for being shaped like a cross. Let’s cheer them up a bit. Despite a few minor setbacks, their war on heritage, on history, and on Christianity continues to go well for them. From University of California, Santa Cruz:

In partnership with the Amah Mutsun Tribal Band, UC Santa Cruz will be removing the mission bell that is located on campus. The bell was originally donated to the campus by a local women’s club many years ago and is located near the Hahn Student Services Building.

The historic bell is a thought crime. Here’s why:

Mission bells, which were installed across the state to memorialize the California Missions, are viewed by many populations as a symbol of racism and dehumanization of their ancestors.

These “many populations” should not include regular Americans, obviously. Nor should they include Hispanics. California missions were outposts of Christianity established by the Spanish before California became American.

However, militantly aggrieved Indians don’t like Spanish missions like San Juan Bautista and Santa Cruz, which represent the spread of Western Civilization, supposedly at the expense of their ancestors, whom the missions were established to evangelize.

Therefore, the bell must go, just like Chief Wahoo. Look out, San Diego Padres. You could be next.

The bell is scheduled to be removed today. The event will comprise one more nail in the coffin of the West.

Netflix Sanctifies Central Park Five

As George Orwell illustrated in 1984, progressives believe that it doesn’t matter what happens; it only matters what people think happened. To quote Orwell, “Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.” The present is controlled by the sort of moonbats who run Netflix. This is bad news for the future.

People of the future will not know what happened. They will know what leftists want them to think happened, so as to advance the narrative that secures their power. A heinously false series on Netflix about the Central Park Five is a case in point.

In its vileness, the liberal media lauds Netflix’s When They See Us, which disgustingly portrays sociopaths as put-upon victims of America’s racist system. Ever digging for new lows, the New York Times actually ran a story praising the series under the headline, “The True Story of How a City in Fear Brutalized the Central Park Five.”

You want to see brutalized? Here is what actually happened:

Sometime between 9:00 and 9:30 on the night of April 19, 1989, a group of more than 30 black and Hispanic teenagers — including the aforementioned “Central Park Five” — attacked 28-year-old Trisha Meili while she was jogging in the park. One of the assailants — whose identity would remain unknown for the next 13 years — raped her with vaginal penetration, leaving his DNA inside the woman’s cervix. As Miss Meili screamed in agony, one or more of her attackers shut her up by fracturing her skull with a lead pipe and mutilating her face with a brick. Meili lost three-quarters of her blood in the assault, and her brain activity could scarcely be detected by medical equipment in the hospital emergency room to which she was later transported. So badly was Meili’s face mangled — one of her eyes had popped out of its socket — that even her boyfriend was able to recognize her only by a familiar ring on her finger. The District Attorney’s office initially assigned Miss Meili’s case to its homicide unit, because none of her doctors expected that the woman would survive for even a single night. Yet Meili did survive, though she spent nearly two weeks in a coma.

Meili wasn’t the only victim.

During the half-hour just prior to their attack on Miss Meili, the Central Park Five and their two-dozen-plus comrades participated in multiple random beatings of other passersby in the park.

The attacks were explicitly racially motivated. Yet the attackers are portrayed as the victims of racism. Liberalism isn’t just wrong. It is precisely 180° opposite the truth. Since liberals control the past through the present, the future will see these vicious thugs as martyred saints, just like Trayvon Martin.

Talk about adding insult to injury:

When the victim, still disfigured and unsteady, went to the courthouse to testify, groups of black demonstrators — led by Al Sharpton — taunted her, calling her a “white slut” and a “filthy white whore,” and claiming that her boyfriend was the real rapist.

Sharpton is a central figure in Democrat politics. Aspiring Democrat politicians have been kissing his ring obeisantly for years.

The Central Park Five confessed and served modest prison sentences. Nonetheless, the unspeakably loathsome Bill de Blasio actually paid the rapists a $41 million settlement in their suit against NYC for malicious prosecution, racial discrimination, and emotional distress. They became millionaires for what they did to Trisha Meili. That any decent person could support Democrats after learning this defies comprehension.

The evidence against the assailants was mountainous. No informed person doubts what really happened. So liberals simply lie.

It is not as if the public does not have access to the truth. In today’s Wall Street Journal, prosecutor Linda Fairstein details some of the many ways When They See Us deviates from what really happened. She was a supervisor of the team that prosecuted the Central Park Five. She describes Netflix’s propaganda as “so full of distortions and falsehoods as to be an outright fabrication.”

But how many people read WSJ compared to those who watch Netflix? Besides, filmmaker Ava DuVernay is a Woman of Color. It would be racist not to believe or at least pretend to believe whatever lies she tells. The future won’t know any better.

The assailants will continue to reap rewards for their horrific crime, thanks to social justice, which is the diametric opposite of what any morally sane person would regard as justice.

The future will regard these nauseating lies as the truth.

History Written by Sore Losers

Normally, history is written by the winners. These days, it is written by the losers — and they are sore losers:

Many Advanced Placement students across the fruited plain will be using an American History textbook that depicts President Trump as mentally ill and his supporters as racists.

The textbook, published by Pearson Education, is titled, “By the People: A History of the United States.”

The final section covers the “Angry Election of 2016.”

“Most thought that Trump was too extreme a candidate to win the nomination, but his extremism, his anti-establishment rhetoric, and, some said, his not very hidden racism connected with a significant number of primary voters,” the author wrote.

The weasel words “some said” are used by people who know they cannot support what they are saying — often because it is a lie.

“Clinton’s supporters feared that the election had been determined by people who were afraid of a rapidly developing ethnic diversity of the country, discomfort with their candidate’s gender and nostalgia for an earlier time in the nation’s history,” the textbook reads. “They also worried about the mental stability of the president-elect and the anger that he and his supporters brought to the nation.”

Not exactly an objective take on the election.

People cannot be expected to know any better if they are brought up on propaganda. There is no hope for the future if leftists are not dislodged from their occupation of the education establishment.

Naomi Wolf Book Based on Errors

Former Al Gore adviser Naomi Wolf hopes to cash in on the current political correctness of homosexuality with her forthcoming book Outrages: Sex, Censorship and the Criminalization of Love, which presumably makes the familiar Cultural Marxist case that we must revere homosexuals because before they were privileged, they were oppressed.

However, they were not as oppressed as Wolf wants us to believe. While hawking the book, she made the mistake of getting interviewed by journalist Matthew Sweet, who observed that the book is premised on errors:

First, she assumed “sodomy” means homosexuality, but Sweet pointed out that, in one key case in her book, it was referring to child sex abuse. Second, she mistakenly believed the 19th-century legal term “death recorded” meant the convict was executed, but it actually meant a death sentence wasn’t carried out because the prisoner was pardoned and freed.

Sweet finds it unlikely that any of the executions Wolf wants us to weep over actually happened.

Listen and laugh at a moonbat’s foolishness:

A put-upon Person of Gayness supposedly martyred because of whom he loved turns out to be a pedophile who molested a 6-year-old. British authorities probably should have executed him, but they did not.

That’s what happens to history books when authors try to subordinate what actually happened to a contrived political narrative. The books turn out to be worthless piles of crap.

Let’s hope that when Outrages (against historical accuracy) is released, booksellers know enough to place it in the fiction section.

Possibly motivated by the reflexive liberal support for Islam, Naomi Wolf has claimed that ISIS beheadings may have been staged. Ironically, it is the British executions of sexual deviants she hopes to exploit for political purposes that didn’t really happen.
