George Orwells dictum, "Who controls the past controls the future: who controls the present controls the past," is often quoted, and for good reason. But it is usually quoted out of context. The passage begins:
"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. "
Then comes the aphorism, and Orwell continues:
"And yet the past, though of its nature alterable, never had been altered. Whatever was true now was true from everlasting to everlasting. All that was needed was an unending series of victories over your own memory."
"Reality control" they called it; in Newspeak, doublethink." Taken in its entirety, Orwells 1984, published in 1949, presciently described the scenario we now see unfolding in the Democratic Party, the party of the American Left. They intend to erase their own racist past by removing statues and maligning anyone, especially President Trump, who voices an objection. As Dennis Prager has often asserted, "Truth is not a leftist value." It most certainly is not a value of the mainstream media, print or electronic. Our media are part and parcel of the leftist apparatus that seeks to control how our history is remembered. They mean to rewrite it, start to finish, and impose their revisionist version on the rest of us.

If they did, there wouldn't be a peep about them from national Democratic Party officials.
Cuz they put them there in the first place?
Q. How is the Left going to avoid a Second Civil War?
A. By wiping out all traces of the first one.
Changing their history. They are blaming republicans for every bad deed done by democrats past. Getting rid of the hardware makes the new narrative harder to contradict.
“Because Southern whites don’t vote Democrat.
If they did, there wouldn’t be a peep about them from national Democratic Party officials.”
....because, as president, Odungo couldn’t
order them removed....
The purpose of the Democrat Party is to elect thieves to public office so that they have access to the public treasuries in order to loot them.
....already heard news comments relating Trump to Bush’s Katrina
Last week it was Russia, this week Nazis, next week statues
The issue is Revolution. Always keep that in mind.
Yes, revolution is the goal, and the left continues to succeed with so much moderate Republican help.
The statues and kneeling during the Anthem are simply a way of hating whitey.
Here’s one thing to hit them back with - Obama’s family owned slaves. It might slow the little totalitarian creeps...
On his mothers side the 44th presidents (a) descendant of slave owners
” Obamas great-great-great-great-grandfather, George Washington Overall... he owned two slaves in Kentucky: a 15-year-old girl and a 25-year-old man... Obamas great-great-great-great-great-grandmother, Mary Duvall, also owned a pair of slaves listed in an 1850 census record. They were a 60-year-old man and a 58-year-old woman. In fact, the Duvalls were a wealthy family whose members were descended from a major landowner, Maureen Duvall, whose estate owned at least 18 slaves in the 17th century.”
Because they were all erected by Democrats for Democrats....................and depict Democrats.............
“Because Southern whites don’t vote Democrat.
If they did, there wouldn’t be a peep about them from national Democratic Party officials”.
Well, I think the real reason is that the War of Northern Aggression is still being waged in the land of ideas. It is always reduced to slavery. But, it was more about money, tariffs, and the growth of federal taxation and the centralization of power in the federal government . . . and we have seen the consequences. Now, the free exercise of commerce is diminished (think Obamacare), and even free speech is endangered, as well as Christianity along with the Judeo-Christian foundations of our civilization.
No they didn’t. Widows and children raised the monuments to remember husbands and fathers. The men who served under great generals dedicated the monuments to honor them. Not everything is about politics.
