Erasing history. An old idea used by evil people.

I believe these days it would be called re-inventing history.

He said something that wasn't PC under today's rules over 50 years ago. He must be erased.

I hear someone asked that about 3 years ago. Not sure anyone has an answer at this point.

***--it's about his movies. Always the good guy.

Let's research all the wrong things done and said about every person ever elected, had something named for them, whatever....and then erase them from history because we know better now.

I think I'm glad I am in my mid-60's. I'd hate to be 30 something and starting a family with this crap going on.

What exactly is to be expected in this regard from a white man born in 1907?

Wasn't he also married to a Hispanic woman with whom fathered and parented several biracial children? Some white supremacist he was.

Progressives are certainly tackling the pressing issues of today, aren't they?

You mean something like this?

"A few years ago, this guy [⁦Obama⁩] would be getting us coffee."
—Bill Clinton

"[Obama's] light-skinned...with no Negro accent..."
—Harry Reid

"...first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean..."
—Joe Biden

Once again, the words of George Orwell's dystopian 1984 are all too applicable these days;


“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”


“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed—if all records told the same tale—then the lie passed into history and became truth. ‘Who controls the past’ ran the Party slogan, ‘controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.”

The plan isn’t well thought out. It’s nearly impossible to fully sanitize all names unless everything is renamed. For example, Princeton just renamed their school of business because they didn’t like Woodrow Wilson stance on segregation, etc. Problem is the school “Princeton” was named after the Prince of Orange has significant ties to slavery. Oops. More scrubbing to do ... very slippery slope.

Over the top.
I imagine they will delete Dirty Harry ( Clint Eastwood) from history also.
