If its fact, its history.......If history is wiped out or glossed over how will

people ever learn from the past mistakes made ??



One basic strategy of American Democrats is to make sure future generations DO MAKE the same mistakes.

That way Democrats are guaranteed "generational" power 😎

U.S. Congresswoman Ilhan Omar defended U.S. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez today by stating firmly that "people are in fact being concentrated at the border and therefore the camps there are indeed concentration camps".😶



Maybe we should call them sanctuary camps , oh yeah we already have those but they are called cities.

Having looked at them online you can tell they were painted to be anti American. They really do seem to be offensive and were made that way on purpose. Apparently they have others too one was a depiction of the Lousiana purchase. For some strange reason a public school allowed such an anti American slant is surprising.

The guy who painted it in the 1930's did it intentionally to show just that.

While Washington did do great things for the founding of this country, he was a product of the times and a human. He had slaves and was a wealthy white elite.

The purpose was to demonstrate that we should recognize his contributions, but we cannot forget his failings. A lot of history focuses on one or the other. Few do both.


It was also illegal to free your slaves at the time, and we were going through a war.......

George Washington left instructions in his will to emancipate the people enslaved, upon the death of Martha Washington.

He inherited these slaves, it wasnt that he was PRO slavery............

I swear the left does NOT do their homework, they love to skew Washington and others just like they like to ignore the facts on the 3/5ths clause

Evolving with more enlightened attitudes and viewpoints that fits today's society is learning from history -- not erasing it.

I do not daily want the wrongs of the past shoved in my face.

There are plenty of museums of history that photos of this mural can be hung for posterity.

Ohhhhh, the drama from the Right.

In 1936 the WPA was doing things like this. FDR, a closet socialist, used the Great Depression to advance his ideas.

The view I presented is realistic and logical.

Society evolves.

In school in the 50s --- life & history was whitewashed, gender washed, & Christian.

I live life TODAY.

What about communists and socialists?

I'd assume most religions do to. Pretty much any ideology that seeks to control their sheep for the continued prosperity of the "chosen" ones.

Thank you that clear's up some reservation's I have about the guy, he intended to free them, of course he could have changed that law as your first president so that actually then count's back against him.
Still the US had to be born and regardless of injustice that existed then and still does today it has over all been a truly great nation in the world especially in the first half of the twentieth century without which this world would now be a much darker place indeed.
