You Know You’re on the Right Side of History When…

You’re on the right side of history when the other side burns our flag, topples our monuments and obstructs the advancement of American Liberty these symbols represent.

“A morsel of genuine history is a thing so rare as to be always valuable.” —Thomas Jefferson (1817)

You know you’re on the right side of history when the other side burns our flag, topples historic monuments and obstructs the advancement of American Liberty that these symbols represent.

Joe Biden remains largely hunkered down in his basement bunker so as not to risk further exposure of his non compos mentis cognitive slide. Until yesterday, when he made an unpublicized appearance and fumbled his remarks, it had been 89 days since he last answered an unscripted media question. Apparently, his campaign’s strategy is “less is more” — and who can blame his handlers?

On Monday, from his sequestered safe house, Biden posted a social-media comment, asserting, “White supremacy should be rooted out and relegated to the pages of history — not promoted by the President of the United States.”

That immediately prompted a question he should be (but won’t be) asked in response: Given the violent racist history of the Democrat Party, shouldn’t any and all references to it be “canceled” and stricken from history, and anyone who refuses to disassociate themselves from the party thrown out of office?

After all, Democrats were the party of slavery before Republicans emancipated black people in the 19th century. After the War Between the States, Democrats became the party of racist oppression for the next century. And in the 55 years since the beginning of the Civil Rights movement, the policy failure of Democrat’s so-called “Great Society” is still enslaving black people on what amount to socialist urban poverty plantations. Democrats were and remain the party of black oppressors.

Arguably, the Democrat Party is, at the same time, the author and beneficiary of “systemic racism.” As the old saw goes, “If not for double standards, Democrats would have no standards.”

Before I go on, we’re nearing the end of our 2020 Independence Day Campaign, so join us! Our mission is, first and foremost, to support Liberty, and our message is more critical now than ever, given the leftist chokehold on our nation. Please take a moment to support our 2020 Independence Day Campaign now.

Amid all the “cancel culture” desecration and destruction of our nation’s history, it is apparent that our “higher educational institutions” have succeeded in dumbing down a generation of mostly privileged white leftists and their frontline agitators.

These unenlightened malcontents never learned that interpreting history in the current context is not the same as understanding history in the proper context. Worse, they conflate historical context with the current context.

It is no small irony that some of the nation’s most elite academic institutions are now subject to the stench of the effluent they created.

Leftists now have the Ivy League universities of Yale and Princeton in their sights. Yale was named for vicious slave trader Elihu Yale in an effort to win his financial favor and become the beneficiary of his fortune. That didn’t happen. Princeton, endeavoring to appease the cancel crowd, is removing the name of former university president, Democrat “progressive” president, and notorious racist Woodrow Wilson from its campus buildings. Duke and Cal-Berkeley, elite universities named for slave owners Washington Duke and George Berkeley, will be next.

After the 2017 Charlottesville protests, I asked the following question in a column entitled, “Monumental Ignorance — The Left’s ‘Historic Cleansing’ Campaign”: Given that the University of Virginia was founded by a slave owner, should it be left standing as a monument to Thomas Jefferson’s legacy?

UVA will be next.

None of the wealthy endowments funding most of these esteemed institutions can escape ties to the historical racial oppression of black people, though most of their discrimination today is against students of Asian descent. Let’s defund them all!

Apparently, university names, statues, rice, pancake syrup, and the like weren’t “racist” just a few years ago when Democrat Barack Obama and his sidekick Joe were in charge.

Notably, given the latest renaming fervor, there’s one recent Democrat Party icon who has escaped cancellation, and his name is emblazoned on hundreds of places.

Despite the “fact-checker” obfuscation, former Sen. Robert “Conscience of the Senate” Byrd (D-WV), the longest-serving member of the Senate, actually DID have direct ties to the Ku Klux Klan. In his home state of West Virginia early in his career, Byrd organized and led a 150-member Klavern, rising to the title of Kleagle and Exalted Cyclops.

Two years after declaring he had officially left the KKK, Byrd wrote a letter to Sen. Theodore Bilbo (D-MS) declaring he would never fight in the military “with a Negro by my side.” Byrd concluded, “Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours be degraded by race mongrels.” A year later he wrote a letter to the national leader of the KKK, the Imperial (Grand) Wizard, stating, “The Klan is needed today as never before, and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia.”

In 2001, the former Democrat Senate majority leader, who became its president pro tempore emeritus two years later, said in an interview regarding race relations: “They’re much, much better than they’ve ever been in my lifetime. … I think we talk about race too much. I think those problems are largely behind us. … My old mom told me, ‘Robert, you can’t go to heaven if you hate anybody.’ We practice that. There are white niers. I’ve seen a lot of white niers in my time, if you want to use that word. We just need to work together to make our country a better country, and I’d just as soon quit talking about it so much.”

In his 2005 memoir, Byrd lamented, “It has emerged throughout my life to haunt and embarrass me and has taught me in a very graphic way what one major mistake can do to one’s life, career, and reputation.” One major mistake followed by a thousand minor ones.

Check out this list of institutions, etc. bearing Robert Byrd’s name.

Don’t hold your breath. Democrat hypocrisy has no time limit.
