More Destruction in the Name of Progress

The Left wants to destroy history.

First Portland – Didn’t We Try to Warn You?.

Protestors Riotors in Portland have destroyed a statue of George Washington.

Back in the 1990s, when activists began declaring the Confederate flag to be “controversial,” I recall leaders of the Sons of Confederate Veterans warning that this malicious spirit would not stop with dishonoring our Southern ancestors. Rather, these “activists” were inspired by demonic forces of racial hatred toward all white people, so that once they were through trashing the memory of the Confederacy, next they would turn to destroying the memory of the Founding Fathers and momunuments to other famous figures of American history. Does this sound familiar?

The French declared a year 1 as part of the French Revolution. Cambodia declared a year 0. “History begins with us.” I don’t remember who said that, maybe one of the Bolsheviks. Anyway click thru.

And more destruction. Protesters tear down statues of Union general Ulysses S. Grant, national anthem lyricist Francis Scott Key.

He [Grant] was a “slave owner” in that he was gifted a slave, hated the idea, and freed him within a year. Then won the Civil War, prosecuted the KKK, and appointed African Americans to prominent roles in government.

So of course we have to tear down a statue of Grant.

Or as one Twitter post put it, “People going after Grant probably just want to break things.”

They want to break everything.
