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.

But I developed my own prejudice against Southerners based on those facts.

ACRU’s Roman: America needs honest debate about history, not lawless destruction

Public officials have the responsibility to protect America from rampaging mobs that seek to destroy monuments and demoralize Americans. The destruction is a means to an end — a Marxist reshaping of America that has little to do with protecting the lives of innocents.
