Skip to comments.Erasing History at Yale: Covers over Musket in Stone Carving of Puritan
Posted on 08/13/2017 7:33:45 AM PDT by ptsal
Just a little over a year ago, an employee at Yale smashed a stained glass window at the school because he was angry over the image of African Americans carrying cotton. We covered it in this post: Yale employee smashes allegedly racist stained-glass window, Yale wont press charges.
Not only did Yale not press charges, they rehired the employee with much fanfare. Now another piece of campus art has been altered for the sake of political correctness.
***snip***...you may have noticed a stone carving by the York Street entrance to Sterling Memorial Library that depict a hostile encounter: a Puritan pointing a musket at a Native American (top).
***snip***Yale placed stone over the musket in the carving.

Now, edit the full name of the settlement at Plimoth.
Those snowflakes were terrified seeing that and had to be coaxed out of their safe places after being told it was covered.
Sterling is the most amazing building I’ve ever been in. As an employee of Yale I was granted access all over - and the entire campus is just beautiful.
The politics are simply awful, as you could imagine.
Why does the NA get to keep his weapon?
I’m guessing they think it’s better for the white guy to be crushing him with a rock than shooting him? Maybe I just don’t understand how (or perhaps if) leftists ‘think’.
Yale needs to do seriuos Community Outreach with New Haven to fix the place, bigly.

Today's liberals are acting more and more like the Stalinists of old.
Here's an example of erasing history, from the master himself. Notice how the fellow on the right (who fell out of favor) simply disappears from the photo.
How do we know it wasn’t a community Turkey Hunt? For Thanksgiving.
How are liberal different from the Taliban?
I am surprised the progressives aren’t stealing private art collections?
The Great Cleansing continues.
Many of us never thought we would ever have such in the USA, but the Libs found a way. Sadly, they are getting Republican politicians to do the cleansing in many states/counties/cities.
Many decried alQaeda and ISIS and the Taliban tearing down historic structures and statues. Many of those same criers are the ones behind this Great Cleansing in the USA.
IIRC, the Orwellian classic 1984 showed an entire government department that existed for the purpose of constantly rewriting history. A half-century ago, many of us sneered at that ever happening. Today, not so much.
It would be interesting to see if history has anything so say about this Great Cleansing a century from now. And we continue to wonder how great civilizations rose and fell.
If they could they would round them up and burn them along with book. The left have had years to perfect the means to control people. Political Correctness was brilliant and can be used so many way. I almost feel sorry for those followers that don’t know they are being used.
They are useful idiots, who will be cast aside when their usefulness is done.
Looks like they are behind the same shield. Perhaps they were fighting together in this particular instance. When are people “in positions of authority “ going to tell the snowflakes to buck up? (FR friendly wording)
The second Sunday of next week.
The GOP is dysfunctional and without hope. Bush#1 was torpedoed by Ross Perot. The legislative branch version of that fiasco is in the offing, and there will be some serious slaughter in the midterms.
Whether it's for the worse, who's to say. In general, save for a meager handful, most of the GOP isn't worth "a bucket of warm piss".
Erasing history, taking down statues - these are the behaviors of invaders, and to me this reeks of agenda 21 globalism.
Just ask the Serb Orthodox whose churches were destroyed, anyone in Tibet or Afghanistan, or survivors of the USSR.
Why don't they understand how dehumanizing this is? It is my strong opinion that they brought the violence yesterday on themselves.
There is a statue of Lenin north of Seattle but no one is afraid it will create dictators committed to genocide.
I read that Lexington is going to accelerate their removal of confederate statues because of the violence yesterday.
White supremacy is wrong but this is the completely worst way to change the world.
Please define “White supremacy”.
