By Larry Bell ~ There’s finally some encouraging new evidence that a few leftward-leaning media and academic establishment types are becoming “woke” to growing perils and punishments for ideological blasphemy. Last Thursday, even the moderate Wall Street Journal editors posted “A Note to Readers” that “These pages won’t wilt under cancel-culture pressure.” The notice was issued […]

By Sarah Williams ~ In recent weeks, thousands of protesters have taken to the streets of America to declare that the lives, fortunes, and sacred honor of the Founding Fathers no longer should be considered the true foundation of the United States of America.

Monuments Are Only The Start Of Radical Left’s War On Western Values

July 1, 2020 by

By Nile Gardiner and Joseph Loconte ~ The radical left has hijacked debate over America’s monuments to wage a cultural war. Their goal: to deny the moral legitimacy of our democratic republic. Violent attacks on statues and memorials aren’t mere vandalism. They are an assault on the United States itself and the values upon which this great nation stands. We should all stand united as […]

Statue Toppling Is Bringing Mob Rule To America

June 23, 2020 by

By Jarrett Stepman ~ Mobocracy is coming to America. A debate over policing, race, and history has degenerated into general lawlessness, as mobs have swarmed and destroyed statues in our biggest cities from coast to coast. And these mobs have hardly been discriminating. They’ve targeted Christopher Columbus, Founding Fathers, Confederate generals, Union generals, abolitionists, black […]

‘Father Of Texas’ Under Fire In The City Named For Him

August 2, 2018 by

1

By Jarrett Stepman ~ The war on history continues in Texas. An agency in the city of Austin recently released a memo suggesting renaming numerous streets and roads, removing statues, and generally eliminating references to the Confederacy.

August 30, 2017 by

By Deroy Murdock ~ “Banning them will do bupkis for blacks.” Deroy Murdock – August 24, 2017 To update an old joke, removing Confederate statues is a bit like wetting one’s self in a dark suit: It offers a warm feeling but little of lasting value. The erasist frenzy to tear down Confederate monuments is […]

By Tom McLaughlin ~ “He who controls the past controls the future… He who controls the present controls the past,” wrote Orwell.

The Charlottesville […]

The End Of Columbus Day Is The End Of America

October 13, 2015 by

By Daniel Greenfield ~ Columbus may have outfoxed the Spanish court and his rivals, but he is falling victim to the court of political correctness. The explorer who discovered America has become controversial because the very idea of America has become controversial. There are counter-historical claims put forward by Muslim and Chinese scholars claiming that […]

May 27, 2012 by

1

By Tom McLaughlin ~ Even archaeology is political these days and it slows down research. Muslim Arabs discourage Israeli Jews from excavating ancient sites like the Temple Mount because findings might bolster Jewish claims to disputed territory. Christians and Jews tend to be more open to whatever may emerge from archaeological digs. They’re happier when […]

For goodness sakes, what will they come to next. This is political correctness gone overboard. Just change things to suit the current thinking. They’ve also changed Enid Blyton’s Noddy series completely deleting any references to the golliwogs. I wonder if these thoughtful […]
