First there was the (once) failed attempt to banish all “Confederate” statues. (even though many of them are mis-targeted) that was reanimated in the current
Second there was the attempt to ban Gone with the Wind.
Are they gonna demand that we get rid of all UnaApproved literature?
Books, films. are they gonna demand the destruction of every copy of every film that depicts slavery, or reinforces the stereotypes of the black culture and the (sometimes poor) treatment of black people by whites?
How about the parodies? “I’m Gonna Get you Sucka”? “Blazing Saddles”? The entire “Foxy Brown” genre? Lots and lots of printed books? (Not that much of the Mob has bothered to even READ a book) that make FUN of the stereotypes.
Thing is, the Mob had destroyed or defaced confederate era statues and monuments…even when those monuments were of abolitionist or in memorial of black regiments that fought against slavery. Unmindful hatred led these fools to destroy ALL monuments that were from that era, no matter who they honored. (Not that the Confederacy and their war against the North was entirely about slavery, moreso an economic war, but don’t ever let history get in the way of uneducated hatred, after all….). Many of the monuments that were defaced had nothing to do with slavery, yet defaced they were, in blind, unfocused hatred.
I doubt that the Mob will be able to understand the concept of satire in movies, if they even care.
The Mob has now even gone after the band “Lady Antebellum” because they have the word in their name that (some) people associate with slavery.
How much history are they gonna rewrite or outright edit out? How much will it take to appease the uneducated?
