The Problem With Removing and Erasing History

Erasing history is counterproductive. Without it, we would be doomed to repeat the same mistakes! Taking down statues, changing names, and other forms of virtue signaling do nothing to stop the real problems we’re facing. Is this letter, written anonymously, just satire? In a few years it could be reality.

Removing/Erasing History

I want Yale renamed, it is named after Elihu Yale who was an American born British merchant, slave trader, President of the East India Company settlement in Fort St. George, at Madras, and a benefactor of the Collegiate School in the Colony of Connecticut, which in 1718 was renamed Yale College in his honor. 

I want New York renamed. It’s named after the Duke of York, the most successful and ruthless slave trader in history. 

I want all the bridges, streets and buildings named after Robert Bird torn down in Virginia, he was the Exalted Cyclops for the KKK, the Enforcer, and was the longest serving Democrat Senator in history until his death in 2010.
I want Obama’s statue removed from all public places immediately. Obama gave the eulogy for said KKK Exalted Cyclops for the KKK Robert Bird.  Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton assassinated the President of Libya, Muammar Qaddafi, and due to his death Libya is now the largest African slave trading country in the world. 

I want Hillary’s face removed from all public places for her role in the assassination of Muammar Qaddafi and for referring to KKK Robert Bird as her mentor. 

I want Anderson Cooper of CNN fired.   He is a Vanderbilt through his mother, and they made their fortune on the backs of slaves and were the first to bring slaves to the South. 

I want Nancy Pelosi immediately removed from office.   Her father Thomas D’Alessandro, Jr., publicly endorsed bigotry — by her own definition — when he dedicated a statue to Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee while mayor of Baltimore. In a speech dedicating the statue, Pelosi’s father hailed Lee and Confederate general Stonewall Jackson as symbols of unity and a source of our “inspiration.” “Today, with our nation beset by subversive groups and propaganda which seeks to destroy our national unity, we can look for inspiration to the lives of Lee and Jackson to remind us to be resolute and determined in preserving our sacred institutions,” D’Alessandro, Jr. said. 

These things need to be done as soon as possible because they offend me.
