Midnight History Thieves

Notice how all of the jurisdictions removing Confederate statues are doing this in the middle of the night, when on one is around to protest?

Yet they are so sure of themselves with their announcement the next day about removing the “hurtful” statue. (Hey, removing them is ‘hurtful’ to me but I guess I don’t count.)

Sometimes they act like the statue magically materialized in the public square or it’s three-dimensinal graffiti. No one put it there. No one ever had any reason to put it there, beyond hatefulness of course.

Yeah, those people “back then,” put it there. They were evil and crazy people. They only hated. Luckily, we’ve progressed so much since then.

So much so that we can simply erase that bad history. Just like it never happened, except in so far as it can be used guilt Americans (especially white males and Southerners) and condemn America.

That’s part of the left’s plan — to detach people from their traditions and history. By doing that, people become rootless, easily manipulated. Deep down most people want and need some kind of traditions and history to guide them — either through what to do or what not to do (Santayana).

Eliminate the past or rewrite it to your content and the present is far more controllable by those in charge. Heads can be filled with propaganda and mush while entertained with new traditions such as Earth Day, MLK Day (no store sales, please), Giving Tuesday and Kwanzaa.

Defacing

I was putting together a bloggie with this thought in mind but the inimitable VDH beat me to it and says it much better.

The predictable behavior of the left gets more and more obvious as it gets increasingly brazen and deranged. Like conquerors (or coup participants) they wish to exterminate all signs of their predecessors.

The one difference here is that the left hasn’t been a conqueror in the traditional sense. Their foes are still in the field, even occupying major political offices, yet the left increasingly tries to write their opponents out of history and society — as if they don’t exist.

I Can Feel My Ovaries Shriveling Inside of Me

Over at The Federalist Bre Payton has a piece on our continued cultural decline.

Any article that has the sentence, “Whenever I see a dude sporting a bun on top of his head, I can feel my ovaries shriveling inside of me,” is a must read.

The Ken doll was always considered a bit effeminate, even when I was a kid in the 1960s and 1970s. That so many girls considered him an ideal mate for their proxy — Barbie (instead of G.I. Joe or even Action Jackson) — was a harbinger of things to come in the decline of the culture/feminization of the country.

It also demonstrates the liberal corporate suite stranglehold that is turning so many American corporations against traditional America. What could these people be thinking? Oh, wait, I know, virtue signaling to other like-minded libtards.

I bet the girls at GMA were cooing with approval.

Why We Can’t Have Nice Things #8764904

As I endlessly remark like a retarded parrot, “Liberals will politicize everything.”

The next example is the perfectly harmless house-hunting/house remodeling hybrid TV show, “Fixer Upper.”

It seems that the cultural commissars have run the show through the Elite Cultural Approval Filter and found it lacking in acceptable content, and therefore — PURIFY!

The hosts, the telegenic Gaines couple, Chip and Joanna, apparently haven’t featured enough politically correct house hunters on the show, specifically “same sex couples.” In addition, the Gaines go to a church and seem to be believers (cue smelling salts for the cultural commissar peanut gallery). Furthermore, this church has unacceptably Christian concerns about homosexuality. So — PURIFY!

That the show is made in the Waco, Texas, area, where “same sex couples” don’t exactly grow on trees, does not seem to have occurred to the liberal Torquemadas. Or possibly it did and they didn’t give poop. Guilty until proven innocent — PURIFY!

Interestingly, an interracial couple — younger black woman and older white man (her former college soccer coach) — appeared on the show, indicating that the Gaines might not be the most bigoted of people but to our cultural inquisitors that’s merely avoiding the charges of racism and ageism (for the moment).

The Gaines themselves have shown no political leanings either way and apparently have not made a statement on the accusations. More can be found here on this depressing story.

Expect HGTV (which has been mugged several times already by the LGBTQWERTY lobby already), advertisers on the network and the show and the Gaines themselves to be forced to crawl on the broken glass of political correctness and issue some kind of mealy “apology” filled all the buzz words like “toleration,” “diversity” and “respect.”

The lesson is that no matter who you are, what you do, where you are, you will be forced into the cultural wars. There will be know refuge from the Javerts. The liberals will hunt everyone down and make them swear fealty to liberalism or be purified in the liberal fires of (secular) damnation.

Don’t say you weren’t warned.

But not to leave on a sour note. Relish this video of arrogant liberals swearing there could never be a President Trump. Especially sweet is the knowledge that the abrasively arrogant John Oliver got it so wrong — and guaranteed that a molecule of humility has yet to enter his body. It’s a known scientific fact that when a liberal is proven wrong, they redouble their arrogance.

They can be defeated!

The Might of Idiocy

Here’s a little Thanksgiving untreat — the dumbest story of the year. It is revelatory of how stupid a large portion of America is and how polluted our cultural and educational system has become.

Hilary Duff, a B List actress and singer who had some success as a teen on, I think, the Disney Channel back in the 1990s, went to a Hollywood costume party dressed as a Pilgrim and her boyfriend accompanied her as an Indian.

Admittedly, the saucy outfit wasn’t exactly what real Pilgrim’s would have worn (a bit much leg, ahem), but harmless enough. The Indian outfit was a typical buckskin and feathers outfit, relatively historically accurate. The beard was a bit off since Indians don’t sport beards.

But of course, as with everything under the sun, libtards had to freak out and turn it into an issue. Apparently self-appointed libtard cultural commissars have declared dressing as a Pilgrim and an Indian to be not acceptable. In fact such activity seems to be equated with a major crime.

An example of such idiocy is Hilary Duff And Boyfriend Offend With Racist Pilgrim And Native American Costumes,” from professional clown HuffPo’s Colby Delbyck.

Young master Colby declares these to be “the worst couples costume ever.” I rather doubt that. People have dressed as Adolph Hitler and Eva Braun, as various grotesque diseases, Jack-the-Ripper and victim, etc. Ah, the libtard, everything is such an extreme.

Then Commissar Colby asserts, “cultures are not a costume.” Really? Then what would a costume be? Costumes have long been defined by various cultures. They are often identifiers of particular cultures and subcultures. Colby, were you awake in anthropology class?

Sadly, it is ignorant fools like Colby (named after a cheese, which is a cultural thing, too), who provide cultural material to people. Readers might assume that the writers of such material are somewhat informed but they would be disappointed. Most writer/reporters today are shockingly ignorant of even the basics. But that doesn’t stop them from going into overdrive on almost everything. They seem to try to make up for their ignorance with passion (usually anger).

Colby somehow drags in protests over a pipeline in North Dakota. Like I said, the libtard will politicize everything because in their shallow minds, everything is connected. Halloween Party Costume=Oil Pipeline Protest.

Such mentality used to be recognized as a mental defect, or simply sloppy thinking. Today it is the pure form of libtard intellect.

Amusingly, Colby insists that Hilary and beau have committed “racist” offenses, unaware that Pilgrims aren’t a race. But then “racist” doesn’t mean what it used to, being nothing more than an invective hurled these days wantonly like “dummy.”

As for the legions of people allegedly being offended, I doubt anyone not with a hypersensitive nitro glycerine-level of offense-seeking was remotely moved by these costumes. If anything, I’m offended by the infantilism of people like Colby. Humanity is doomed with folks as moronic as Colby (and so many others whining) proliferating.

I realize that “Pilgrims” have been declared politically incorrect and there’s an attempt to distort their history and expunge them from their important role in American history. That’s very sad and doesn’t say anything positive about the folks doing the purging — including large numbers of supposedly “educated” people and people responsible for educating the next generations.

Needless to say, the average Pilgrim, women and children included, are easily twice the man as people like Colby and the typical Pajama Boy libtard of today. Colby and his ilk would have lasted about 8 seconds in 1620 North America.

Actually he would have never survived the voyage. In fact, he would never have had the intellectual fiber to be the independent thinking, deep believer in God that the Pilgrims were. People like Colby need coddling mother government, fueled by the fruits of people Colby hates, to keep him living in the luxury he so deplores in others.

Furthermore, Colby would not be enjoying the life he leads now were it not for people like the Pilgrims. Ingrate is too weak a word to describe the libtard of today. It is a grain of sand on a vast beach of ingratitude and hypocrisy.

In addition, weak, easily moved minds loathe those who have deep beliefs. The believer is to be mocked by those subsumed in neverending doubt papered over by conceit and arrogance.

But back to the main point. Why can’t people like Colby let others wear what they wish to a harmless costume party? These very same judges eagerly shout down anyone commenting on “slut-wear” sold to children for everyday clothing. “Do not judge!” they intone as they immediately rush to judgment.

Why the constant public trials and the eventual pressure to make Duff grovel like a penitente from the ages of the Spanish Inquisition?

Ah, but that is just the point, it is an inquisition; a modern inquisition, conducted by a religious movement which deludes itself that it is not a religion.

These people are stoking a cultural war.
