ELDER PATRIOT – The problem with the Left is that they seem to make it up as the go along. That goes a long way to explaining their maniacal butt-hurt attempt to whitewash our country’s magnificent history.
It’s doubtful they are going to stop with the removal of historical monuments that they determine to be “offensive.” They’re already well into the process of banning free speech through the use of “algorithms” and advertiser boycotts.
It’s just a matter of time before they make a full-throated effort to remove the Founding Fathers from our history books as a first step in delegitimizing the Constitution, something Maxine Waters has been trying to do since she first found her way to Washington.
In fact, that’s already being attempted by Mya Berry, a student at James Madison Memorial High School in Verona, Wisconsin.
Madison is recognized as the author of the Constitution the document that has allowed imperfect people from around the world to enjoy a greater degree of freedom here than they could’ve virtually anywhere else on the planet. That includes Berry irrespective of where her forebears “roots” may have been.
Madison was an imperfect man to be sure but in a world of imperfect men (and women) his crafting of the Constitution would stand as the crowning achievement of anyone’s life.
Now this foolish child is circulating a petition to change her high school’s name because a man who died over 181 years ago somehow makes her feel “unsafe.”
She claims that she has been called the “n-word” many times and was even threatened with a “lynching,” though she hasn’t accused America’s fourth president of those offenses.
The petition on Change.org charges Madison with “owning” 100 slaves, and that incredibly leaves Mya Berry, the petitioner feeling threatened. Talk about a serious derangement syndrome.
This, of course, is nonsense. It’s a transparent first move to first defame the Framers and then the Constitution itself.
How can I say this? Because leftists have been ignoring the Constitution for more than 100 years. Depositing it on the trash heap of history would be just fine with them.
Their messiah, Barack Obama characterized the Constitution as “a charter of negative liberties,” which “says what the states can’t do to you (and) what the Federal government can’t do to you, but doesn’t say what the Federal government or State government must do on your behalf.”
You know, like forcing a healthcare system on the people for their own good whether they want it or not, that is destined to collapse but not until he has ridden off into the sunset leaving the mess for someone else to clean up.
There’s also this to consider, for all his imperfections, Madison couldn’t hold a candle to Hillary Clinton if one is truly serious about a study of who did more damage to more blacks.
