Walter Williams: Leftist effort ongoing to revise US history

The destruction of historical monuments has not ceased, nor has ACRU efforts to protect them. In a new syndicated column, ACRU Policy Board Member Walter Williams notes, “a tyrant’s first battlefield is to rewrite history” and shames the left by sarcastically suggesting a “Commission to Eliminate Bad Memories.” Please read this great commentary and visit our Protect Monuments website to join us in saving our national treasures.

ACRU’s Roman: Monumental Wounds

My great-great grandfather was a hero of the Civil War--a soldier of the Ohio Cavalry who was wounded and captured. He almost died in the most notorious and horrific Confederate prisoner of war camp. As a child, each Memorial Day, I heard the stories about the War Between the States as my dad put flowers on his great granddad’s grave. The stories were not told with animosity. Just facts. But I developed my own prejudice against Southerners based on those facts.

ACRU’s Blackwell: Cancel Culture’s Dual Meaning Is a War for America’s Soul

"Cancel culture” is a double entendre of the dangerous kind. It is not just about canceling individuals or entities who offend leftist activists and their myopic group of minions; it is about fundamentally canceling America.

179 Monuments Ruined Since Protests Began, And Counting

Thirty-three statues of Columbus. Nine of the Founding Fathers. Eight of Saint Junipero Serra. With the frequency of the ongoing iconoclasm, it can be hard to gain a scale of the problem.

Rep. Kevin McCarthy discusses proposed Protect America’s Statues Act

ACRU created the Protect Monuments project to ... protect our monuments. And history. And national treasures. We are grateful to Reps. Kevin McCarthy, Jim Jordan and Sam Graves for spearheading the Congressional effort to do the same. The legislation would block federal funds to local and state officials who stand by and watch violent mobs destroy our monuments.

Heritage’s Kay Coles James: Wild mobs are the opposite of liberty

In this piece by The Heritage Foundation President and champion of liberty Kay James,  she notes that violent mobs—permitted to riot by spineless politicians—are not just breaking stuff, they are trying to destroy the very core of our democracy and our freedoms. She pulls no punches in identifying the dangers of “mobocracy” and calls for officials to take action and citizens to step in to make sure they do.

The cost of allowing riots comes home to roost

Many local and state officials ignored rioters and looters who pretended to care about racial injustice while destroying homes, monuments, and businesses. Liberal officials are now discovering the cost of their cowardly failure to enforce rule of law above mindless mob violence and turning to the president they fight at every turn for a bailout. The answer, so far, seems to be “you made your nest; now pay for it.”
