First off, let me say that I don't agree with this at all. I don't agree with acting outside of the established process for such things and this was legitimately historic. It also has an interesting backstory including being lost in the woods for it sounds like decades.


If we forget the past, we are doomed to repeat it. Really makes you wonder, doesn't it?


Are we going to lose historians, history books, various archives (newspaper, magazine, film, etc), the Internet and oral tradition?

I'm pretty sure that nobody is going to forget history over the loss of this. It's really an unnecessary, abysmally bad and wholly specious argument.

I don't think it has been determined that slaves built the pyramids, there is some evidence to the contrary..obviously though no one can say for sure one way or another.

Well, my definition would be anything in the past.

Antifa might define it as just things they want you to know 'cuz the rest is stoopid.

This is a sad day for the rest of us leftists who would not act in such a manner. These were not leftists but rather indolent children with little concept of the complexities necessary to implement positive steps forward for all Americans of good intent.


This is important.

Most people on the left DO NOT WANT THIS!!!

Everyone on the right needs to understand that.

But to the left I would say; do you see why holding the media accountable for belittling or celebrating these fools is so important?

I'm just wondering who this Christopher Columbus character was?


He is the guy who pioneered a route to the Americas.

It's only a matter of time before the book burning starts. Mark my words.

ETA: Nevermind, it's already happening.

I'm pretty sure he was also a Confederate Nazi...because everyone hates his statue.

LOL! Unless they stole those books, they just put money in Trump's pocket in the form of book royalties.
That's hilarious, honestly.

Columbus, the Nazis, and the KKK are on a level with ISIS not a crazy group of leftist

Next thing well hear BLM being compared to ISIS around here, if it wasn’t done already


Well you just must get triggered by all history since slavery, killing, seek out and conquer, is what was common place during historical times. Even the pyramids were built on the back of slavery. Down with the pyramids!! Egyptians are like ISIS!!

What utter nonsense.

Here's a little secret, too. The Indians Columbus killed? They were going around killing one another and conquering each other's land for hundreds of years before Columbus ever showed up. Why? That's how the world worked. Go open a book. Or perhaps, go burn all your books as you might not be able to handle what's inside.

We should just blow up all libraries so lefties don't get triggered.


I don't disagree with you

I believe there is a time in every civilizations life that they are ready to abolish slavery.

Foe the US, 1860 was that time.

Therefore, I give Jefferson and Washington a pass.

Self-righteous people don’t understand that

I point out to my militant friends that the greatest African civilizations had slavery as an institution.

They don’t like to hear that but it’s the truth…

Even God allowed slavery since the big three religions allowed slavery, simply because the civilizations were not ready for its abolishment.

Oh your getting revenge because I intellectually abolished you the last time you were abusive

I understand

Why don't you at least deal with the subject matter not just your insults

Oh, that may be because you have no arguments




Hey I must have missed that one. I always enjoy a good bashing would you mine pointing it out?

They're burning books to promote literacy.



There was a thread about Nazi's burning books which no one in their right mind would defend.

Wonder who will defend this?

I think this has already been established... a long time ago. But I don't pretend to ignore the irony and double standards when it comes to these "anti-fascists".

Says it loud and clear,
-cis white males need not apply.
-you are either with them or you are a fascist.

Talk about being blinded by ideology.
