More of America’s History Cancelled: Why It Matters to New Jersey
PREVIOUS “CANCEL CULTURE” VICTIMS INCLUDE: PHILADELPHIA ICONS FRANK RIZZO & KATE SMITH
The “Cancel Culture” fanatics are losing their minds and almost no one, living or dead appears to be safe.
The latest examples are from dateline:
Statutes of Confederate Generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson have been taken down.
Full disclosure, the ills of slavery are reprehensible, wrong and cannot and should not be defended, ever.
However, you also can’t change our history. It should be accurately taught and the statures of The Confederacy remain not to celebrate them; rather, because it’s a part of American history.
What’s going on is a radical agenda of cancellation of our history and the art depicting that history.
You can honestly debate and try to make the case that statues of Lee and Jackson should come down.
But, why take down a statue featuring historically significant explorers Meriwether Lewis, William Clark, and Sacagawea.
Lewis was specifically chosen by then United States President Thomas Jefferson to explore and report back.
Also, the specious reason given for taking down Sacajawea is preposterous. Some made the case that they didn’t like the position of her body in the statue.
Sacajawea was a tracker. This is exactly how she was positioned in the statue. It was not to make her less or subservient in any way,
The loon “Cancel Culture” extremists are also busy trying to cancel Jefferson, George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Abraham Lincoln and other prominent Americans.
Recently, the San Francisco, California Board of Education actually voted to rename schools named after Jefferson and Lincoln.
Only intense pressure by the public backed these radicals from executing their disgusting plan.
Please try to process that they actually unanimously voted to “cancel” The author of the Declaration of Independence and The Great Emancipator.
It’s completely out of control.
Here’s how the latest madness occurred:
The Charlottesville City Council voted unanimously in a meeting hastily called on 20 minutes notice to take down the explorers after toppling statues of confederate generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson on Saturday.
"I feel that it should just be melted down," a Sacagawea descendant Rose Ann Abrahamson said during the council meeting, The Daily Progress reported. “I feel that it's entirely offensive and it should be obliterated."
How can you attempt vaporize 217 years of history in 20 minutes?
What once seemed impossible when former President Donald Trump projected it, is well under way.
According to President Donald Trump at Mount Rushmore in 2020, "Those who seek to erase our heritage want Americans to forget our pride and our great dignity, so that we can no longer understand ourselves or America's destiny."
Lewis, sent by President Thomas Jefferson to explore land west of the Mississippi in 1804, was born in Charlottesville’s Albemarle County.
The Charlottesville's Lewis and Clark Exploratory Center has offered to take the statue.
