I burned a Twilight book once.


I tried to burn 'Fahrenheit 451'...but my fire wasn't hot enough.

You have a copy of "Celsius 232.78"?

I'm going to crowd fund a life size bronze statue of Ray Bradbury, then topple it in your honor.

I never learned to read Celsius...they made me take French in Junior High School.

What history you say? So those people didn’t exist? They, products of their time and era, judged through today’s lense arent history because it’s not a part of history? Seems as though you want to deny the existence of events because there are parts of them that you don’t like how they make you feel. As the OP stated, similar to other mass propagandists and thought control experts, the Nazis, the current movement is attempting to deny and erase history and figures on the legs of “morality”.

Those who persecuted the Jews did so thinking they were stopping a great evil and greed. There seems to be a new target being taught on campus, in the media, in our politics. It’s called out by the color of its skin as being evil. There is a gender bias as well, but that’s not as bad as the evil we are taught is commited by those who’s gender and race have been outlined to be evil. Pretending it’s because you’re actually morally right is irrelevant, we have normalized racism and sexism in the classroom and the news room and destroy our history. Nazis thought they were making the world better too.

Every word you just said was wrong. History does repeat, there are cycles humanity continues to go through. If you cannot see this you are denying your own humanity. A simple cycle that all humans will repeat... simply the means of your creation, and the creation of their parents and their parents before them is a repeating cycle. This is a fundamental truth, we are the same throughout time race and culture, aspects of humanity always remain true.

What's currently going on is worse.

You no longer can say what you want

You can no longer go to church if you want.

You have to ask for permission to defend yourself, and when you do your arrested now.

You had a past president using government agencies to spy on his successor.

You had sitting president impeached with absolutely NO REAL PROOF of wrong doing.

You have supposed arbitors of justice making it up as they go along now See what they've done to Stone, and think about WHAT the eff they're going to do to you if you dare stray from the party.

You can't even painted over a road sign that was already painted over illegally without it being a hate crime.

The current state of the union is severely effed with a fore cast of even more effed tomorrow, and the day after, and the day after that.

That's just the tip of the iceberg of what's been going on for too long.

Wanna learn something today?

You've probably been taught your entire life that the Nazi's were burning history books and things of that nature.

They weren't.

They were burning pornographic and sexually deviant material that was infesting the streets of Berlin in the 1930's. These were books that were advocating transgenderism and the normalization of pedophilia. I support that. And it took a good 7 decades or so for the the same people to get those books back into "intellectual" circles.



I got the balls to admit I didn't know that.
I didn’t either, but Jonah Goldberg explains in his book, “Liberal Fascism”, that the Nazis were into animal rights and vegetarianism, as well as the occult. Also eugenics. Interestingly, Progressives today are into making us stop eating meat ( to stop Climate Change because cow farts and also because inequality, as the rest of the world cannot afford meat and therefore meat is a symbol of American affluence which according to them must be stemmed to make everyone equal), and they are into abortion which is population control. Now today it seems they want to eliminate white folks. In the end, does it matter what race they currently want to eliminate ? Also they want to eliminate Christianity, and are currently infiltrating their Church and sanitizing it through the World Council of Churches.

Because the ones toppling the statues know if it was up to a sensible vote, most of the statues would be kept.


Depends on what statue.
Does it? Why did they also target Frederick Douglas, a prominent abolitionist ? The truth is that many of these protesters grew up with the communist revisionist history of Howard Zinn, as Dinish DSouza relates in his documentary film, that Zinn’s books focus on a hatred of America.

I appreciate your humor. However, it is very specifically mentioned in Agenda 21 and those who espouse it that meat is too affluent and Americans are too affluent and therefore we should curb our meat eating. Why do those who consider themselves tolerant feel justified in controlling everyone’s diet while demanding everyone tolerate immoral and amoral behavior and the promoting of it in classrooms ?

The late Prof Antony Sutton wrote about how the power elite use revisionist history to achieve their ends. He wrote that the American Historical Society was created as a tool of Skull and Bones to revise and control the history. Today there is the use of anarchy and violent means to control history and political power.

You're right, and remembering recent history I recall that the first thing the US did upon reaching Baghdad was to tear down the statue of Saddam.

It's a sign of the times and a sign of the mindset.

It's just a step towards removing the president's from our money to try to bring in a new currency. Get people upset at statues and have them say what about the money?
