TKC Reader Regrets Midwest Colleges Turning Against The Founders Rather Than Examining Sordid American History



Forgive the lead image . . . Just a reminder that the constantly evolving politics of sex are far more captivating than humorless partisan hacks from "many sides" attempting to garner the moral high ground.

Still, even old school scandal can be problematic because slave rape isn't glamorous in the least:

Did ‘Thomas and Sally’ Romanticize a Master/Slave Relationship?

And given that quickie history lesson, we move to a current campus debate shared with us by the TKC blog community:

A nearby Kansas college is clandestinely giving up the fight to preserve sordid American history:

Washburn University quietly removes Founding Father statues

Of course, the battle over statues also rages on the Mizzou campus . . .

KMIZ: Incident reports detail alleged vandalism at University of Missouri’s Jefferson statue

And so, Heartland universities struggle to reconcile the past and seem eager to hide or destroy history rather than learn from it.

You decide . . .

So I think it's safe to say if people want our history erased then slavery did NOT ever happen in this country. So by that lets take away affirmative action and black history month among many other things. Sounds good to me so go ahead and take the statues down. This might be a good call.

Gutless trustees beget gutless administrators who abandon basic educational principles to the detriment of history. Once history is no longer taught, then we are doomed to make the mistakes of the past.

Doesn’t bode well.

Never knew what to think of Washburn. Now I do.

Tie the concept of "reparations" to include a mandatory "return to Africa" and see how quickly this sort of crap goes away.

Luddites and ignorant barbarians. That's what our universities create! End taxpayer funding of "academia". They have forfeited their privileges.

I'm disappointed in my alma mater. While I doubt it makes any difference, I'm stopping my contributions to the alumni association.

Why? Unlike most blacks, most Europeans, Asians and others assimilated and thrived.

The concept of "Not Perfect You're Out" means no statues to anyone. You go down that judgmental road at your own peril.

Washburn students have icky bodies.

Imagine people who get their understanding of history from TV shows. Well, why not? Colleges don’t teach real history anymore.

This is about more than the founding fathers owning slaves. Its more about rejecting the message of limited government by faulting the founders who built this country on it. The Democratic party was the defender of slavery and Jim Crow laws. Should that party be abolished because of things that happened generations ago?

Washburn is washed up. I've been begging the libtards for decades to quit hiding who they are and what they think. I got my wish. They've doused themselves in #2 diesel and are asking for a light. Amusing as hell to watch.

Blacks are a concurred inferior race as viewed through history. Blacks want to erase history rather than face and learn from it. The communist Chinese government is only too happy to help encourage this. VOTE BIDEN for a better China. You don't need that extra kindey and eye anyways,

Communist Democrat Controlled Cities:

Minneapolis
Portland
Seattle
Chicago
Kansas City
St Louis

Police Department is not allowed by Democrat politicians to stop the burning and looting by the Communist Democrat Terrorist groups ANTIFA and BLM.

10 murders in Chicago last weekend.

Kansas City and St Louis experience record homicides.

Seattle, Portland, Minneapolis and Kenosha burned and looted.

The Constitution and 2nd Amendment are the only protection left between you and these criminal elements.

Joe Biden hides in his basement.

Vote for President Trump in 2020.

Shit I hope MU pulls its head out of its ass in 4 years. Its a great, storied University but with their pandering to the commie agitators they get none of my bucks. I now send the alumni emails right into the spam folder. Who knows how many events I've missed, only been through the campus a handful of times since 2015.
