    A leading archeologist tweeted instructions on how to safely topple an obelisk as George Floyd protestors in her town toppled a Confederate statue during a demonstration that escalated into unrest. University of Alabama at Birmingham archeologist Sarah Parcak took to Twitter Sunday evening offering details on how to bring an obelisk down as demonstrators in the city's Linn Park defaced a Confederate monument and tore down a statue of Confederate Naval captain Charles Linn Sunday night. A day earlier, protestors in Nashville, Tennessee, toppled a statue of Edward Carmac, a former politician and newspaper publisher who wrote editorials expressing racist...
  • De Blasio blames chaos on anarchists with ‘explicit agenda of violence’

    Mayor Bill de Blasio on Sunday blamed a new breed of highly organized anarchist hell-bent on violence for violent protests that have rocked the city. “We’re seeing something new, and not just here in New York City, but all over the country,” Hizzoner said of the violence. The “x-factor,” he said, were groups who were “not just protesters but people who came to do violence in a systematic, organized fashion.” He called the “small” number of people “well-organized” and linked to “the anarchist movement,” rather than really mourning George Floyd’s death. “They plan together online, they have very explicit rules,”...
  • Bill de Blasio: Protesters Created ‘Untenable’ Situation for Officers Who Rammed Vehicle into Crowd

    It was inappropriate for protesters to surround a New York Police Department (NYPD) vehicle and threaten the officers, Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) said Saturday. The mayor’s comments came after video footage surfaced online that showed an NYPD police cruiser driving into a crowd of protesters in Brooklyn as they threw large pieces of debris and orange traffic cones at it. “It’s inappropriate for protesters to surround a police vehicle and threaten police officers. That’s wrong on its face, and that hasn’t happened in the history of protests in this city,” de Blasio said at a press conference in Brooklyn.

    A war memorial in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, has been vandalized with red paint on Memorial Day. The memorial is known as the World War I Doughboy, located at the “Y” of Penn and Butler Streets in the Lawrenceville neighborhood of Pittsburgh, was covered in red spray paint, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported. The message painted onto the memorial read, “JUNE 19, 1986, GLORY TO THE DAY OF HEROISM.”

    He was at a crossroads, his life stretching out before him, his troubles largely behind him. He had enrolled at South Georgia Technical College, preparing to become an electrician, just like his uncles. But first, he decided, he would take a break. College could wait until the fall. To help keep his head clear, he ran, just about every day. Off he’d go, out of the doors of his mother’s house, down the long street toward Fancy Bluff Road. Then would come the right turn onto the two-lane road lined by oak trees draped with Spanish moss. About a mile...

    Even amid an all-consuming global crisis, Mrs. America, the new series from FX on Hulu, was guaranteed to become a media event. After watching six of the nine episodes—the only ones available as of this writing—I can attest that the attention is warranted. It’s a lively, superbly acted, cleverly structured ensemble piece about the 1970s battle royal between feminists and Middle American housewives over the Equal Rights Amendment. It has timeliness going for it, too, illustrating the straight line between the populist forces mobilized by ERA foe Phyllis Schlafly and those that sent Donald Trump to the White House 40-odd...

    Despite the retractions, disparagement from legitimate historians, and ignored fact-checkers, the 1619 Project now boasts the industry’s most respected award. The Pulitzer committee on Monday afternoon bestowed its prestigious award on Nikole Hannah-Jones’ opening article in The New York Times’ 1619 Project, despite the essay’s self-acknowledged factual inaccuracies. Historians of every political stripe have derided the project and Hannah-Jones’s essay in particular. Gordon Wood, a reliably left-wing but widely celebrated historian, took to the pages of a socialist website, of all places, to excoriate the Times for publishing nonsense. Conservative-leaning biographer Richard Brookhiser questioned why even the Trotskyite Fourth International...

    Disney+ is developing a female-centered Star Wars series that will be written and showrun by Lesley Headland, a co-creator of Netflix’s Emmy-winning dramedy series Russian Doll. Deadline has confirmed the gist of the series. While the exact plot is under wraps, but the series is understood to be a female-driven action thriller with martial arts elements and set in an alternate timeline from the usual Star Wars universe. Disney declined comment on the project, which was first reported by Variety. It marks the latest Disney+ original series in the Star Wars universe, following the successful The Mandalorian created by Jon...

    With the revived push for the Equal Rights Amendment has come a revived push to cast Phyllis Schlafly as a historical villain.

    #TakeEmDown Comes to Yankeetown By Lola Sanchez on Mar 27, 2020 From Dylann Roof to Harvey Weinstein Many of us predicted it. The war on American monuments and memorials wouldn’t stop with just stop with Confederate ones. It wasn’t hard to figure out, but the answer was always, ‘yeah, but they’re not going after Northern “civil war” monuments. And of course we said, “what about the 54th MA Infantry monument” which was vandalized in Boston with the usual red paint, and an extra touch of the breakage of the white officer’s sword on the bronze relief monument. And their response...
  • Delingpole: Wikipedia Airbrushes List of Climate Sceptic Scientists Out of History

    Wikipedia has deleted its ‘List of Scientists Who Disagree with the Scientific Consensus on Global Warming’. Stalin — who set the template for airbrushing inconvenient people out of history — would no doubt have heartily approved of this wanton act of censorship. But what would probably have pleased him more is the magnificently twisted justification offered by the editor responsible. “The result was delete. This is because I see a consensus here that there is no value in having a list that combines the qualities of a) being a scientist, in the general sense of that word, and b) disagreeing...

    “On August 19 of last year I listened in stunned silence as Nikole Hannah-Jones, a reporter for the New York Times, repeated an idea that I had vigorously argued against,” reads the first sentence of Friday’s essay by Leslie Harris, a history professor at Northwestern University. Harris is just the latest in a string of academics to levy criticism on Hannah-Jones and the 1619 Project. She is the first, however, who actually took part in the project as a fact-checker. During the publication process for 1619, Harris “vigorously disputed” the idea that the American Revolution was actually about preserving slavery....

    Mary Grabar's book, 'Debunking Howard Zinn,' takes aim at the celebrated historian who is as influential as he is ideological and dishonest. Howard Zinn’s book, The People’s History of the United States, is one of the most famous American history textbooks ever written. His goal was to change the way Americans saw their own history by writing from the perspective of those he called “underdogs.” In doing so, he thoroughly distorts the true historical record and paints America as an inherently unjust nation.Mary Grabar believes that at the root of his agenda is a desire to see America turned into...

Rappers such as Melle Mel and Fab Five Freddy were spitting rhymes over scratching turntables; breakdancers performed with them, throwing down acrobatic moves, stylishly posing.

    Penguin Random House and Barnes & Noble collaborated to redesign the covers of twelve classic young adult novels with 'Diverse Editions' to display during Black History Month, which is recognized in February. But as the books were debuted on Monday, the public's response wasn't positive. Many suggested that it would have been more proactive to promote books written by authors from diverse backgrounds. Social media was abuzz with readers voicing their concerns over the way two of the literary community's largest entities chose to approach diversity. The books that were given new covers featuring characters of color were Alice in...

    If the reports are true that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu intends on expressing support for the campaign that Russian President Vladimir Putin is conducting against Poland over the past few months, then it is a bad joke at the expense of the victims of the Holocaust, and its survivors, in whose name world leaders are gathering on Thursday at the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial center in Jerusalem. At the center of Putin’s campaign is the accusation that Poland caused the outbreak of World War II, while minimizing the large role played by the Soviet Union.

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., stated on Monday that the Democratic Party is a "center or center-conservative" party and how there currently isn't a "left" party in the United States. Speaking at an event commemorating Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Ocasio-Cortez knocked her own party for not being progressive enough. "We don't have a left party in the United States. The Democratic Party is not a left party," the freshman congresswoman began, which sparked applause from the audience. "The Democratic Party is a center or a center-conservative party.”

    Hillary Clinton opened up about her marital struggles with Bill Clinton in an upcoming documentary about the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee. “I didn’t want anything to do with him,” Clinton said, appearing to tear up, in a trailer of the four-part series which premieres in March on Hulu. The Clintons’ marriage faced a difficult period when Bill had an affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky during his presidency. He initially denied the affair under oath, which led to his impeachment in December 1998. Months earlier, Chelsea Clinton, who was 18 years old around the time the Lewinsky scandal played...

    Presidential candidate Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., likened President Trump to the infamous ringleader of the 1950's 'Red Scare,' Joseph McCarthy, in an answer during Tuesday's Democratic debate. After being asked whether or not she was concerned Trump would be "emboldened" by a Senate acquittal now that House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is set to transmit the articles of impeachment to the upper chamber, Klobuchar replied that she was not, saying members of Congress needed to do their constitutional duty and check the executive. "I think the best way to think about this trial and what we're facing in this...
