Historical revisionism is, in short, not cute!
No, it's not. Which is why I can't understand leftist idiots' fascination with both socialism and historical revisionism.
The TRUE history of slavery in the US involved Native American, African and European slaves. Leftist revised history conveniently leaves out the Native American and European slaves except to falsely assert that all European slaves were merely indentured servants and criminals.
Leftist revised history likes to rail against Hitler for being a racist while themselves hating on Israel and ignoring the fact that the Grand Mufti was persecuting the Jews in the Middle East at the same time. Or that today's islamic terrorism has its roots firmly based in the teachings of Otto Skorzeny. If you don't know who that is, look it up.
Leftist revised history has decided that Sir John A. McDonald was a racist and therefore that's ALL he should be remembered for. Nothing like taking a single fault and making the person all about and ONLY about that one fault. Talk about dehumanizing, and more than a little bigoted.
Christ, revisionism is a major tool in the leftist tool box.
Kennedy was a womanizer. Lyndon Johnson was a racist.
When it comes to the Democrats in the US, nothing has changed since their slave-owning, KKK days. They still see Black people as slaves, they just use them differently. That's why leftists HATE Black conservatives. Black conservatives see themselves as equals. Democrats see them as someone who continually needs govt support (not necessarily financial support) and propping up. It also blows the narrative out of the water that Conservatives are just a club for racist old White men.
Of course leftards will exclaim that it was Democrats who brought in the Civil Rights Act or whatever it's called, to include all Black people but, it's not always what a govt does but why they do it. Johnson's rationale for it was, "It'll keep those ni**ers voting for us for another 50 years" to paraphrase what he said, although the racial slur isn't paraphrased. It wasn't about compassion or empathy or doing what's right. It was about votes and nothing but.
In fact, the left has gotten so proficient at re-writing and revising everything they don't like, they're now having a go at science, particularly human biology and evolution.
But yeah, write an entire article whining about historical revisionism based entirely on how some people like to "remember" Ronald Reagan while ignoring the decades of leftist revisionism. Guaranteed some equally poorly-educated leftist half-wit will jump on the bandwagon and nod "knowingly" at your "wisdom".
