As I was talking Thursday with John Heubusch, the brilliant and dedicated executive director of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute, it was really driven home to me what a dangerous period we are living through.
It is the ignorance of the mob which allows its members to smear American heroes and destroy the memory of key personalities in the rise of freedom.
In Boston, the ignorant and the hateful damaged the statue dedicated to Col. Robert Gould Shaw and the men of the 54th Massachusetts.
As anyone familiar with American history or who has at least seen the amazing movie "Glory" knows, Shaw organized the first regiment of African American volunteers and convinced President Lincoln to let them fight on the side of the Union. It was a courageous, radical action at the time and incredibly controversial.
On July 18, 1863, Shaw was killed leading his men into battle at Fort Wagner. The flag bearer was an escaped slave named William Carney. It was this statue honoring both Shaw and the African American troops he had recruited which some ignorant barbarians trashed in Boston.
When the Taliban blew up two gigantic Buddha statues, the world expressed outrage. Yet the barbarism of the mob in the United States is just as destructive of existing art and artifacts as the Taliban was. The left talks of changing Mount Rushmore, dynamiting Stone Mountain Georgia, eliminating the Jefferson Memorial, and renaming the Washington Monument.
The one-woman mob inside the Capitol, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, decided on her own to take down four paintings of Speakers of the House who had served the Confederacy. They will now be hidden in the Pelosi memory hole. There's talk of taking out a dozen or more supposedly inappropriate statues in the Capitol.

Yes they are the American Taliban.
They are psycho cultists.
They are just liars. they talk about unity and getting along but they’re the most devisive hate filled, narcissistic people under the sun. What do they have to offer people besides hate and divisiveness this election? What is their platform? To the people out there needing a job or working and have to pay high taxes, the average American voter, what the hell is this party on the left offering besides pandering to a bunch of low life flea bags tearing down statues?
After the infamous photo on the sofa with Pelosi, it really takes some chutzpah to now call her out on her BS. Newt was perfectly well-aware of her nature at the time of the photo yet there he was acting like they were great buddies.
Really, Newt? Somebody had to explain it to you? Go back to France or wherever it is you call home now. We got this.
