In case you missed the news, and you probably did, Rachel Dolezal thinks that is is important that you know that she is bi-sexual. Seriously… this is “important.”
Meanwhile, in Chicago, the Lake County Forest Preserve has decided – or maybe they haven’t – to end the “Civil War Days” program which included a re-enactment of the war and an encampment with a living history display. Why?
Well… it’s the second decade of the 21st Century. So the answer is that is causes “offense,” including Confederate Battle Flags and history with which one Angelo Kyle disagrees. Plus it doesn’t promote Global Warming Awareness.
Now, at the end of the day, which is more important? That we “be aware” that an opprobrious liar is “bi-sexual” or that the citizens of Illinois, who once upon a time provided thousands of troops to the Union, will be denied a chance to learn about that history because “history is written by the victors?” You might think that one is more important than the other. But we are being told, over and again by those who want to run society that it’s the other.
There’s a bigger problem with these Civil War controversies. Statues and flags are not it. We have forgotten one very important thing…
