NYC Mayor hunts down offensive plaque

4년 전

New York's City's Mayor Big deBrothero plans to hunt down any plaque that might be offensive to some. Perhaps he should begin by seeing his dentist!

After that, he can go after the FDR Drive, since Roosevelt imprisoned Japanese-American citizens during the war.

Follow that with the British Consulate, since we fought King George for out freedom.

Washington Square Park would be next, since Washington had slaves.

In a real "piece de resistance", how about ridding the world of those treasonous Tyrannosaurus Rex bones in the Museum of Natural History, since T-Rex would have been the first terrorist, had there been any humans on the planet at the time.

Is there no level to which this clown will not sink?

George Orwell would have been amused... Or maybe not!


Michael Goodwin of the NY Post must have appreciated my "rant", as he published some of my thoughts in Saturday's "editorial" section!

Readers are not taking kindly to Mayor de Blasio’s vow to remove “symbols of hate” from city property. Donald Morris calls him a “clown” and writes: “He should begin at the FDR Drive, since FDR imprisoned Japanese-American citizens during the war, then close the British Consulate since we fought King George for our freedom. Washington Square Park would be next, since Washington had slaves.”

Frances Kahn calls the mayor a “hypocrite” and says: “He can honor Oscar López Rivera, Fidel Castro and his Nicaraguan comrades, but takes umbrage at American historical figures. Statues don’t hate. Plaques don’t demonize. People do.”

And Jim Soviero draws on another totalitarian figure: “Now we have Mayor Mao enforcing his own cultural revolution.”

When does the rewriting of the history books begin or has it been ongoing for our entire lives? History repeats, it's nice to have these markers in place, so we know where we may have gone wrong.

Rewriting books or more expeditiously burning them has been used by tyrants as long as books have been around. If there are no more books to burn, people will do just as well.

Saw this in the NY Post! Congratulations @domo!

I think you still haven't gotten the hang @domo of switching over from the wife's STEEMIT account! lol

this Martin Armstrong article has a bunch more great examples of this lunacy:

Andrew Jackson was a slave owner and he started the Democratic Party to defend slavery. If Trafalgar Square and the Nelson’s statue should be torn down because he supported slavery, then the Democratic Party should be terminated, and Jackson’s portrait should be removed from the $20 bill would also follow that reasoning. That’s much more on point than Columbus. Perhaps these people should refuse to accept money in protest since they bare the image of racists to them.

How about Alexander Hamilton, he was probably a slave owner and he was definitely involved in transacting deals for the purchase, sale, and transfer of slaves, which is documented. The play Hamilton should be shut down and the minorities who lectured the Vice President when he attended should reflect on themselves as supporting racism. So anyone who goes to see that play would also be supporting racism?
