WND Exclusive – Cancel culture is erasing history – and America

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Now they’re canceling cartoons. They’re cartoons, people!

But that’s what leftists do and have done for over a century.

It began with Woodrow Wilson’s desire to rewrite the Constitution. His reasoning was that it was a fine document for its time, but was no longer applicable to the concerns of the day. You could say he was the father of modern-day cancel culture.

Frankly, Wilson is the father of everything that’s wrong with America at present, but I digress.

Since then, the left has evolved, or devolved, into what we see today, a movement bent on asserting that all past American culture is offensive, isolating it – and little by little, step by step, erasing it from history until there’s nothing left.

It used to be that we on the right were afraid that the left wanted to spin or change history – for example, that it wasn’t the Democrats who were the party of slavery, Jim Crow and the Klan, that they’ve always advocated for people of color.

It was a win for them for sure, but the truth may eventually come out because the history is still there for anyone to find if they are so inclined. In other words, the history wasn’t erased.

However, it appears that the left has learned this lesson. It appears they’ve figured out that it’s more effective and a lot quicker to just cancel history, erase it, wipe it away, rather then take many decades to change and spin history.

The statue of Robert E. Lee in Charlottesville, Virginia, was torn down in 2017 – less than four years ago. How far we’ve come just since then.

Tearing down statues and monuments, canceling the Confederacy – this was a logical beginning of the cancel culture movement.
