As our country grows more “diverse” and less American, this is the inevitable result:
“Over the past several years, we have seen a rising tide of assaults on statues and other works of art representing our nation’s history by those who are eager to squeeze that complex story into a box defined by the evolving rules of political correctness. We might call this the “monument controversy,” and what happened at Notre Dame [where 134-year-old paintings of Christopher Columbus were covered-up] is a case in point: a vocal minority, claiming victim status, demands the destruction, removal, or concealment of some object of which they disapprove. Usually, the official response is instant capitulation.
As the French writer Charles Péguy once observed, “It will never be known what acts of cowardice have been motivated by the fear of not looking sufficiently progressive.” Consider the frequent demands to remove statues of Confederate war heroes from public spaces because their presence is said to be racist. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, for example, has recently had statues of Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson removed from a public gallery. In New York City, Mayor Bill de Blasio has set up a committee to review “all symbols of hate on city property.”
“Symbols of hate” of course means “symbols of whiteness.”
Roger Kimball goes on:
“But it is worth noting that the monument controversy signifies something much larger than the attacks on the Old South or Italian explorers.
In the first place, the monument controversy involves not just art works or commemorative objects. Rather, it encompasses the resources of the past writ large. It is an attack on the past for failing to live up to our contemporary notions of virtue.”
While this is the left’s usual stated reason for erasing American history, the true reason behind it is far more troubling than simply political correctness run amok.
It’s about erasing traces of American history to make the country more reflective of its new owners (nonwhite immigrants), rather than the old ones (white people).
Since 1965, the Uniparty Establishment has been working tirelessly to demographically transform America into a “diverse” international homeless shelter in order to make it more receptive to leftwing socialist policies.
Demographic transformation of a country necessarily entails wholesale cultural, linguistic, religious, political and yes, even historical, transformation.
Historical transformation–which comes after erasure–is necessary to ensure a place is completely transformed beyond all recognition, permanently.
A nation is defined by its history, in other words “who it was.” In order to know what someone or some place is, you must know what it was.
Erasing a nation’s history means it is simply a blank slate, a plot of land on a map, which can thus be remade into anything.
And that’s the point.
If you thought the historical erasure would stop with Confederates and Old Southerners, you were wrong. That’s just the first step. That’s the low-hanging fruit the Globalist Uniparty Usurpers can take with little pushback from the token opposition on the right at places like National Review, whose Editor was all to happy to capitulate on the matter of Confederate Statues:
Yes, this is certainly standing athwart history and yelling ‘Stop!’
The so-called “Conservative Movement” has no interest in conserving American history because its member are more interested in being accepted by the Cool Kids.
But it’s not going to stop with the Confederate monuments. Already they’re coming for Christopher Columbus.
In 2017, “protesters” in NYC defaced a statue of Theodore Roosevelt and demanded the statue be taken down because it was a symbol of “patriarchy, white supremacy and settler-colonialism.”
And if you think they’re not coming for the Founding Fathers, you’re clueless.
The more immigrants that pour into this country, the less relevant American history becomes. Our history is not their history. Why should they have to drive down roads named after our Presidents, and send their children to schools named after our historical figures? Eventually, everything will be renamed.
Here in Chicago, there was talk a few years ago about renaming O’Hare International Airport after Obama. It didn’t happen, but is there any doubt this will happen in the future eventually? “Who was Butch O’Hare? *google search* Oh, some OLD ASS RACIST ASS DEAD ASS WHITE GUY?! FUCK HIM!”
Obama is the messiah of the New America, while a guy like Butch O’Hare represents the old America.
In Minnesota, Lake Calhoun, located in downtown Minneapolis, had its name changed to “Bde Maka Ska” last year. “Bde Maka Ska” is its “original Dakota” Indian name.
It’s not about honoring the Indians who were “here first,” but about dismantling all traces of white American history. John Calhoun, whom the lake had been named after for nearly 200 years, was an advocate of slavery, so of course that was the justification for stripping his name from the lake.
Because White Men = slavery, while Indians = morally flawless noble savages.
But removing the name of a Dead White Guy from a lake in Minneapolis was part of the wider, deliberate chipping-away at American history taking place across this country.
And it’s not just statues, lakes and buildings named after Dead White Guys. It’s Western literature that is being tossed in the dustbin of history, too:
“The English department at the University of Pennsylvania contributed to the monument controversy when it cheered on students who were upset that a portrait of a dead white male named William Shakespeare was hanging in the department’s hallway. The department removed the picture and replaced it with a photograph of Audre Lorde, a black feminist writer.
“Students removed the Shakespeare portrait,” crowed department chairman Jed Esty, “and delivered it to my office as a way of affirming their commitment to a more inclusive mission for the English department.” Right.
High schools across the country contribute to the monument controversy when they remove masterpieces like Huckleberry Finn from their libraries because they contain ideas or even just words of which they disapprove.”
The New Americans are dismantling our country before our very eyes. They are pulling the rug out from under us.
They are making the country more reflective of who they are, rather than who we are.
This applies to architecture as well. For ten years Muslim preachers in England have been demanding the Queen wear a full burka and that Buckingham Palace be affixed with minarets:
“The Queen forced to wear a burkha and Buckingham Palace turned into a mosque – that was the vision of Britain under Sharia law proposed by a Muslim firebrand yesterday.
Preacher of hate Anjem Choudary even showed mocked-up photographs of the palace sporting a golden dome and Nelson’s Column as a minaret.
He was speaking ahead of a central London demonstration that was planned for today.”
Here’s Choudray’s ideal version of Buckingham Palace:
Could they be any clearer about their intent to conquer Britain?
And American architecture is next. The neoclassical style of the Capitol, the White House and most of our famous landmarks around D.C. will one day inevitably be renounced as “white people” architecture.
Will the New Americans one day blow up Mount Rushmore? It sounds unthinkable but logically, it follows when you’re already defacing statues of Teddy Roosevelt and itching to do the same to statues of Jefferson and Washington.
The most important thing is: the faces on Mount Rushmore will come to reflect the old America, and the New America will not like that.
This type of thing has happened consistently all throughout history: when places change hands, they change names.
All traces of the old occupants and rulers are discarded and replaced with monuments recognizing the idols and icons of the new occupants and rulers.
Under Roman rule, the land today known as “France” was called “Gaul.”
When the red communists took over Russia, the city of St. Petersburg was renamed “Leningrad” after the patriarch of the Soviet Communist Party.
In Vietnam, Saigon became Ho Chi Minh City, named after the leader of the Vietnamese Communists.
Constantinople became Istanbul in 1453 when it was conquered by the Ottomans.
New York City was originally called New Amsterdam, reflecting its Dutch rulers. But the British renamed it after the Duke of York upon conquering it in 1664.
In 2003, what was the first thing the Iraqis did after being “liberated” by America? They famously pulled down the giant statue of Saddam Hussein.
The Uniparty Propaganda Media celebrated the toppling of the Saddam statue as a symbolic moment marking the official end of Saddam’s regime–and, of course, the optimistic dawn of a New Era of American-Imposed Democracy in Iraq.
The toppling of old statues, no matter where, marks the fall of an old regime and the its replacement by a new one. America is no exception.
There are countless more, and smaller, examples of names being changed and statues being toppled all around the world, all throughout history.
It is symbolic of conquest.
We may not have foreign armies marching on us and conquering us in the traditional understanding of the term, but we are being conquered nonetheless.
What we’re experiencing is conquest by way of mass immigration. The modern West may be experiencing the first-ever peacetime conquest in that our homelands are being conquered despite not being besieged by foreign armies and enemies at the gate
The end-result will be the same, however.
