The Declaration of Independence was about creating something – a new nation.
The organized Marxist destroyers, rioters and looters of today, that go by the name Black Lives Matter, Antifa, or whatever name, are not about creating…they are about destroying, erasing, canceling – an exercise in elimination. Their purpose and intent is to destroy America and assert a Marxist-type of government. An important part of their success is attributable to the consent of the elites of America. The people who run the country’s major institutions – in business, academia, bureaucracies, media, politics, book publishing, social media, museums, and philanthropies. The assent, if not outright support, by the elites provides legitimacy to this destructive movement. The Marxists would not succeed if they didn’t have the support of the press, the Democrat Party, and the elites, and the enormous financial funding from major corporate America.
America needs its modern-day patriots, like the signers of the Declaration of Independence, to step up and assert their leadership. We need people today who will pledge their lives, fortune and sacred honor for the protection and preservation of America the Good.
THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
In Congress, July 4, 1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
Don’t trust your instinct. I can certainly see why women, including Jewish women, would prefer a seemingly well-spoken, mature senior stateswoman, to a brash, loud-mouthed political neophyte who has made so many off-handedly offensive locker-room comments about women.
This would be your instinct.
How lovely, how easy, it would be then, to vote for a woman running against a man like that.
David Gelernter writes a commentary today in the Los Angeles Times that ignorance of history is undermining society’s ability to talk straight and to think straight. He states that by teaching ideology instead of facts, our schools are erasing the nation’s collective memory.
“There is an ongoing culture war between Americans who are ashamed of this nation’s history and those who acknowledge with sorrow its many sins and are fiercely proud of it anyway. Proud of the 17th century settlers who threw their entire lives overboard and set sail for religious freedom in their rickety little ships. Proud of the new nation that taught democracy to the world. Proud of its ferocious fight to free the slaves, save the Union and drag (lug, shove, sweat, bleed) America a few inches closer to its own sublime ideals. Proud of its victories in two world wars and the Cold War, proud of the fight it is waging this very day for freedom in Iraq and the whole Middle East.
If you are proud of this country and don’t want its identity to vanish, you must teach U.S. history to your children. They won’t learn it in school. This nation’s memory will go blank unless you act.”
I wrote the following letter to the Los Angeles Times today:
David Gelernter in his commentary today bemoans the fact that children are not taught history today, but rather ideology, and that schools are erasing the nation’s collective memory. The reason for that is that it is Democrats, who are proponents of an ideological agenda, who write our children’s history text books today.
As a result, African-American children will not learn from their history books that it was the Republican Party, the Party of Lincoln, that brought war against the Democratic slave-owners of the South to free the slaves, or that anti-war Democrats in the North strongly opposed the Civil War and voted to demand that President Lincoln rescind the Emancipation Proclamation, or that the Ku Klux Klan was the terrorist arm of the Democratic Party.
American children will not learn from their history books that the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the 1965 Voting Rights Act were reforms that the “Radical” Republicans struggled to have enacted during Reconstruction, but were unsuccessful due to fierce Democratic opposition.
American children will not learn from their history books that along with pressing Congress to give Blacks the right to vote, Republicans supported Women’s Suffrage for thirty years against Democratic opposition until it was finally passed in 1920.
American children will not learn from their history books that the 13th and 14th Amendments were passed by a Republican majority while most Democrats opposed their passage.
There are many other important messages in our history that American children will not learn from their history books, which is why I agree with David Gelernter that parents must teach U.S. history to their children. They won’t learn it in school.
