New York Yankees Banish Kate Smith to Memory Hole

No one and nothing are safe from PC purges intended to eradicate American heritage. Not even the tradition-minded New York Yankees. Not even the song “God Bless America.” Not even Kate Smith. Not even the 18-year tradition, dating back to the 9/11 aftermath, of playing a 1939 recording of Kate Smith singing “God Bless America” during the seventh-inning stretch at Yankee games.

You might be thinking, surely, not even the bitterest moonbat could object to something so wholesomely all-American.

Au contraire. Nothing so wholesomely all-American can be allowed to exist. Because racism.

Crows the odious New York Daily News via MSN:

The Yankees have taken a stand against racism for their seventh-inning stretch.

This was accomplished by frog-marching Kate Smith to the Memory Hole. Her thought crimes:

Smith was a famous singer before and during WWII who recorded the offensive jingle, “Pickaninny Heaven,” which she directed at “colored children” who should fantasize about an amazing place with “great big watermelons,” among other treats. She shot a video for that song that takes place in an orphanage for black children, and much of the imagery is startlingly racist. She also recorded, “That’s Why Darkies Were Born,” which included the lyrics, “Someone had to pick the cotton. … That’s why darkies were born.”

“That’s Why Darkies Were Born” was satirical; the song was recorded by black singer Paul Robeson. However, “her shocking lyrics from 1939 are neither humorous nor ironic in 2019 — and the Yankees acted swiftly.” As we have learned, context does not matter when it comes to blaspheming against the most sacred concept in the liberal religion, negritude.

Ronald Reagan honored Kate Smith with the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1982. No doubt President Sanders will revoke it.

Smith, who died in 1986, endorsed the “Mammy Doll” in 1939, which was based on a racist caricature of a black woman in the same vein as Aunt Jemima.

It was a different time. People had different attitudes. Are liberals going to abolish everyone from the past who did not comply in every respect with the up-to-the-minute requirements of political correctness?

Yes, they are — even though that means erasing the past altogether. When history has been eradicated, they will have a blank slate, facilitating their ambitious social engineering plans.

On a tip from Varla.
