The Washington Post: Fake News AND Fake History

 "Everyone should do all in his power to collect and disseminate the truth, in hope that it may find a place in history and descend to posterity."--Robert E. Lee - Confederate History Books and DVDs - The South - Black Confederates - Southern History - Slavery Not Cause of Civil War - Right of Secession - War Between the States - World History - World War I - World War II - The World Wars - Bonnie Blue Publishing - Gene Kizer, Jr. - Charleston Athenaeum Press Logo

The Washington Post article, "Destroying Confederate monuments isn't 'erasing' history. It's learning from it."1 by African American associate professor Keisha N. Blain of the University of Pittsburgh, proves that not only does the Washington Post peddle in fake news, it peddles fake history.

Professor Blain's contention in the short article is that "Confederate monuments, as well as Confederate-named Army bases, are modern inventions meant to distort history and celebrate a racist past" because:
These symbols serve one primary purpose - to honor figures of the past who upheld an undemocratic vision of America. They were created by white supremacists. And they function as a balm for white supremacists who long to return to a period when Americans regarded black people as property.
This is a silly, self-important view of history by a person obsessed with race.


  1. The stupidity of those who want to erase history is monumental.

    (Sorry, I had to go there).

  2. There'll never be coexistence. I'm not referring to racial coexistence. I'm speaking of ideological coexistence where all humans are just pawns in the game. One will always dominate the other and now in 2020 the way things are headed the future doesn't look bright.

    1. in 2020 the way things are headed the future doesn't look bright

      Yes and the next four months will be interesting.
