Are you ready? From Hays High School in Austin to Richland High School in Fort Worth, the left’s movement to re-write American History is gathering an ever-stronger head of steam. With thanks to FoxNews for the Richland link, here’s the the latest video – from Austin. (Sorry about the YouTube ad.)
And in Fort Worth:
The proximate targets of the ongoing complaints are high school flags, mascots and songs (in particular, “Dixie”) which remain as historical landmarks of the Confederate view of history in the War Between The States.
That’s only the beginning. If you’re late to the party, ladies and gentlemen, the ultimate target here is the complete destruction of our Constitution, itself, as a symbol of repression, white supremacy, and slavery. The complainant in the Fort Worth, Texas, case is the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. Here’s the bottom line:
SCLC’s complaint says it wants rebels and all Confederate references gone by the first day of school.
BTW, the mascot of the Southern California high school from which I graduated a long, long time ago is (thus-far) the Rebels. Based upon recent events, I don’t expect that mascot to survive much longer.
We haven’t seen anything close to what’s coming, yet. I hate to bring this one up:
Don’t say I didn’t warn you. If you remember, Elvis Presley once made a beautiful, evocative recording of “Dixie.” Don’t be surprised if that recording and Elvis, himself, soon appear as targets on the radar scope.
Think I’m kidding here about what’s coming? I wish I were.
