War on History Goes After Ronald Reagan

Any historical figure who could serve as a rallying point for resistance to the Far Left must be demonized, marginalized, and then erased. Robert E. Lee was only the beginning. In no time at all, they moved on to heroes as disparate as Christopher Columbus and Thomas Jefferson. Already they are purging the recent past. John Wayne was targeted. Now we learn that Ronald Reagan was racist and therefore bad:

On Wednesday afternoon, CNN became the first cable news network to air former President Ronald Reagan making racist remarks — in which he called African diplomats “monkeys” — since the tape was released on Tuesday.

CNN propagandist Brooke Baldwin explicitly equated Reagan with Trump, whom the liberal media has portrayed as a racist on a daily basis since he was elected.

“On the heels of President Trump using disparaging imagery to describe African nations, new tapes have just been released by the National Archives that reveal similar language used by the late President Ronald Reagan,” Baldwin said.

Actually, Trump has not used similar language, or we would know about it. CNN would probably set up a permanent chyron.

The remark in question was from a private 1971 telephone conversation with Richard Nixon. Any number of people may have said something similar at the time. However, to say it these days would be extreme blasphemy against political correctness, since Persons of Politically Preferred Pigmentation are now regarded as sacred beings around whose holy oppression all reality revolves like planets around the sun. The War on History works by incongruously holding historical figures to current liberal political standards on a retroactive basis.

“To see those, those monkeys from those African countries — damn them, they’re still uncomfortable wearing shoes!” Reagan said.

That may be all it takes to destroy the greatest president to serve in our lifetimes. Instead of inspiring future generations of conservatives and patriots, Reagan will be dismissed as a racist. By now we all know that if someone says anything racist, their entire existence is totally discredited. Everything else they say or do must be wrong. To dispute this would be to risk being denounced as a racist yourself.

Either we stand up to the word “racist” or we lose Ronald Reagan.
