It has become clear over the past seven years that President Obama really doesn’t like America as he found it.
Like most liberals, he sees an America filled with demons of racism and inequality. And, that certainly goes for American History as well.
Part of his “fundamental transformation” of America is to attack and destroy the very institutions that have made America the great nation it is. That includes America’s History.
His surrogates have been ravaging the American landscape seeking to destroy as many bits and pieces of American History as they can get their hands on.
Breitbart reports on one such recent attempt:
On December 17, the New Orleans City Council voted to remove four Confederate statues from the city, using obscure “nuisance” laws to strip these over 100-year-old historic monuments from their places of display. Mayor Mitch Landrieu said it was a “courageous decision to turn a page on our divisive past and chart the course for a more inclusive future.” Of course, the plan to remove the statues is itself divisive as a number of preservation organizations have filed lawsuits to save the monuments.
The New Orleans statues to be removed are of General Robert E. Lee, General P.G.T. Beauregard, and Confederate President Jefferson Davis. The city will also remove an “obelisk dedicated to the Battle of Liberty Place” according to CNN. The Lee and Beauregard statues are on the National Register of Historic Places.
However, the war on Confederate monuments is part of the most recent effort by national activist groups to strip elements of American history deemed offensive and not in line with their current, ever-evolving political agenda. They wish to do more than create a new political order, and insist that the only way for the U.S. to move forward is by entirely erasing the past.
The anti-Confederate monument activists are not just setting their sights on the Confederacy, but American history as a whole—deep down they make little distinction between the Confederate founders and the Founding Fathers of the United States. There are plenty of reasons for critics–both contemporary and modern–to attack the Confederacy, especially the ideas that were at its cornerstone. Yet neither the ideas nor the personal character of the monuments’ likenesses are particularly relevant in this crusade. All that matters is that they are currently politically incorrect.
America’s history, far from perfect, still is part of our national identity. Typically when socialists take over a country, they seek to purge that country’s past – a move designed to intimidate and “re-educate” the masses.
For these liberals to destroy part of America’s history that goes against their agenda is fascist; it denies the very freedoms of speech and expression that have made America in the first place.
It is a supreme irony that these left-wing radicals have used these very freedoms to get to a place to deny them to others.
